  1. 1. Sediment resuspension : Impacts and extent of human disturbances

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Ingrid Tjensvoll; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Marine Ecotoxicology; marin ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : Resuspension of sediment by anthropogenic disturbances is a concern due to the impacts it has on organisms and ecosystems. Bottom trawling is one major cause of sediment resuspension. A field study showed that a small trawl created a sediment plume 120 - 150 m wide and 15-18 m high (Paper 1). The sediment in the same study was highly contaminated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Model Studies of Surface Waves and Sediment Resuspension in the Baltic Sea

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Anette Jönsson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Surface waves; Wave model; Wave friction velocity; Resuspension; Sediment dynamics; Nitrogen fixation; Baltic Sea; Havsvågor; Östersjön; Oceanografi; Sediment; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Oceanography; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Oceanografi;

    Abstract : Wave heights and periods of surface waves in the Baltic Sea have been modelled for a two-year period (1999-2000) with the wave model Hypas on an 11x11-km grid scale. There is a clear seasonal variation with higher waves during winter and lower during summer. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sediment pigments as biomarkers of environmental change

    University dissertation from National Environmental Research Institute, Denmark

    Author : Nina Reuss; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Greenland; Sediment; paleolimnology; paleoecology; estuaries; lakes; Europe; pigments;

    Abstract : This thesis demonstrates the usefulness of sedimentary pigments as biomarkers of environmental change in estuarine systems and as biomarkers in lakes in relation to climate change. These are two fields where sediment pigment records as measured by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) are emerging areas of study. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sediment sources and transport pathways, Lithuanian coastal zone

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Milda Kairytè; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sediment; grain size; mineralogy; Lithuania; coastal zone; provenance; geology;

    Abstract : This thesis presents an investigation of recent sediments of the Lithuanian coastal zone, SE Baltic Sea. The main focus is upon the detailed documentation of grain size and mineralogy and the development of analytical methods using these essential and most common sediment parameters. READ MORE

  5. 5. Lake sediment as environmental archive : natural and anthropogenic influence on the chronology of trace elements

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitetsbibliotek

    Author : Evastina Grahn; Örebro universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; lake sediment; environmental pollution; trace elements; chronology; diagenesis; Ag; Be; Ga; In; Pb; Sb; Tl; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Environmental chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Miljökemi; Enviromental Science; Miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : The focus of this thesis is the historical pollution of some seldom-monitored trace elements (SMTEs; Ag, Be, Ga, In, Sb and Tl) that have been involuntarily released for several thousands of years but whose usage have increased during the industrial era. Sediment cores from four rural lakes in a south to north transect in central Sweden, and two urban lakes have been used as environmental archives for chronological studies. READ MORE
