    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Phytoplankton; Bacteria; Climate change; Quorum sensing; Microbial blooms; Vulnerability factors; Arabian Sea; Southwest India;

    Abstract : Unicellular organisms, microalgae and bacteria, less than one millimeter in size make the world go round. Phytoplankton and cyanobacteria, for example, plays an inevitable role contributing 50-85% to the world’s oxygen via photosynthesis. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Asian monsoon - 50-7 ka BP

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Akkaneewut Chabangborn; Barbara Wohlfarth; Jenny Brendefelt; Ludvig Löwemark; Richard Gyllencreutz; Rodrigo Caballero; [2012]

    Abstract : The Asian monsoon is one of the largest climatic systems on Earth. It covers an area from the Arabian Sea to the South China Sea and from northern Australia to northern China with the world’s highest population density. Moreover, the Asian monsoon transports heat energy and humidity to higher latitudes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Analysis and Modelling of Desalination Brines

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Modelling.; Field data analysis; Negatively buoyant jet; Experiment; Brine discharge; Desalination; Water supply;

    Abstract : Seawater desalination constitutes an important water supply to the population bordering the Arabian Gulf, the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea. The three regions represent about 11.8% of the world land area and the countrieshosted approximately 9% of the world population in 1950 and 2008 and are also projected to do so in 2050. READ MORE

  4. 4. Seismicity and earthquake source mechanism study in the East African rift

    Abstract : A new earthquake catalogue of the Horn of Africa has been compiled for the period from 1960 to 1993. The threshold magnitude of this catalogue is found to be 4.5 (mb). Spatial and temporal variation of seismic energy release and b-value are investigated for this catalogue. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cryptic Orogeny uplift of the Al Hajar Mountains at an alleged passive margin

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Geological Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Reuben Johannes Hansman; Ring Uwe; Joachim Jacobs; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; uplift; mountains; structural; low-temperature; thermochronology; dating; fission-track; U-Th He; U-Pb; calcite; structure-from-motion; photogrammetry; UAV; trishear; fault-propagation; Hafit; Al Hajar Mountains; United Arab Emirates; Oman; Geology; geologi;

    Abstract : Mountains evolve and grow because of the large forces that occur from the collision of tectonic plates. Plate boundaries change and move through time, and regions that were once stable, shallow-marine environments can be dragged into subduction zones and get transformed into vast mountain ranges.
