    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Land; Agrofuels; Ecologically unequal exchange; Environmental load displacement; Land grabbing; Malthus; Brazil; Ethanol; Resource wars; Land Use change; Indirect land use change;

    Abstract : As a global society we are entering an era where land areas and land-based resources are coming to the fore once again for capital accumulation and economic growth, for the first time since the end of the 18th century when Malthus forecasted a contradiction between population growth and agricultural output. That constraint on economic growth, imposed by limited land areas, was overcome by the combination of fossil fuels (coal, oil) and appropriation of space overseas (colonialism, trade). READ MORE

    Abstract : Natural exogenic geochemical processes in northern Sweden have been studied. The thesis is focused on field weathering rates and variations in the chemical composition of water with time and space. Variations in weathering rates of silicate minerals are important for the global CO2 cycle, and thus also for climatic changes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Baggy paper webs : Effect of uneven moisture and grammage profiles in different process steps
