  1. 1. Transport, degradation and burial of organic matter released from permafrost to the East Siberian Arctic Shelf

    Author : Lisa-Marie Bröder; Örjan Gustafsson; Tommaso Tesi; Elizabeth Canuel; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; organic carbon; marine sediments; East Siberian Sea; Laptev Sea; cross-shelf transport; degradation rate constants; carbon isotopes; terrestrial biomarkers; HMW wax lipids; lignin phenols; compound-specific radiocarbon analysis; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Permafrost soils in the Arctic store large quantities of organic matter, roughly twice the amount of carbon that was present in the atmosphere before the industrial revolution. This freeze-locked carbon pool is susceptible to thawing caused by amplified global warming at high latitudes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Measurement and source apportionment of ubiquitous soot black carbon in sediments

    Author : Marie Elmquist; Örjan Gustafsson; Per Andersson; Wulf Amelung; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : The pyrogenic particles formed from incomplete combustion of organic matter are often termed black carbon (BC) and they partake in many important biogeochemical processes. For instance, BC in water and sediment affects the solid-water partitioning of hydrophobic organic pollutants reducing their bioavailability. READ MORE

  3. 3. Compound-specific stable chlorine isotope analysis : A versatile tool for investigating biochemical and geochemical processes of organochlorine substances

    Author : Henry Holmstrand; Per Andersson; Örjan Gustafsson; Neil Sturchio; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; compound-specific chlorine isotope analysis; chlorinated organic compounds; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi;

    Abstract : Chlorinated organic compounds (OCls) from anthropogenic sources are generally considered to be a class of chemicals with high potential for ecotoxicity, including infamous substances such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), dichloro-dibenzo-trichloroethane (DDT) and polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDD). OCls are also produced naturally, sometimes at the same order of magnitude as anthropogenic compounds. READ MORE

  4. 4. Compound-specific bromine isotope analysis of methyl bromide using GC-multiple collector mass spectrometry

    Author : Axel Horst; Örjan Gustafsson; David Bastviken; Ulla Sellström; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The isotopic composition of ozone depleting methyl halides may provide valuable information on the sources and sinks of these compounds. However, so far mostly stable carbon isotope analysis of methyl chloride and methyl bromide has been at­tempted. READ MORE

  5. 5. Stable bromine isotopic composition of methyl bromide : Method development and applications

    Author : Axel Horst; Örjan Gustafsson; Detlef Schulz-Bull; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : The isotopic composition of ozone depleting methyl halides may provide valuable information on the sources and sinks of these compounds. However, so far mostly stable carbon isotope analysis of methyl chloride and methyl bromide (CH3Br) has been attempted. READ MORE
