  2. 2. The measurement of chemical persistence in the field by benchmarking Theory and Experiment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Hongyan Zou; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; chemical benchmarking; persistence; half-lives; modeling; threshold benchmarking; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Persistence is one of the core criteria in chemical exposure and hazard assessment. It is often defined as the half-life for the removal of a chemical from a specified environment by transformation. Chemicals with long transformation half-lives may pose high risks for wildlife or humans and be subject to long-range transport to remote areas. READ MORE

    Abstract : Faecal contamination of drinking water sources poses risks for waterborne disease outbreaks. To manage these risks the fate and transport of faecal contamination in a drinking water source need to be understood and quantitatively described. READ MORE

  5. 5. Analysis and Modelling of Desalination Brines

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Raed Bashitialshaaer; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
