  1. 1. Wastewater generated by the wooden floor industry : Treatability investigation applying individual and coupled technologies

    Author : Sawanya Laohaprapanon; William Hogland; Marcia Marques; Eduardo C. Pires; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Wooden floor industry; activated carbon sorption filtration; anaerobic biological treatment; chemical precipitation; electrocoagulation; ecotoxicity; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science; Environmental technology; Miljöteknik;

    Abstract : During the last half-century a growing concern has taken place in the world regarding water shortage and public health associated to water pollution. Safe discharges of industrial effluents and water reuse within the industry have been encouraged and several initiatives have promoted the development of wastewater treatment technologies with the main focus on industrial sectors that generate large volumes of wastewater.

  2. 2. The Nitrogen Cycle in Soil - Climate Impact and Methodological Challenges in Natural Ecosystems

    Author : Anna-Karin Björsne; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nitrogen cycle; 15N tracing experiments; gross N transformation rates; climate change; climate treatments; mineralization; nitrification; forest fertilization; nitrous oxide emissions; boreal forest soil; tree species; soil organic matter; C:N ratio;

    Abstract : Nitrogen (N) is a fundamental element for life, and limiting in many terrestrial ecosystems. In non-N-fertilized ecosystems, the N inputs can be low, and the nutrient availability for plants is determined by the internal cycling of N. READ MORE

  3. 3. Late Holocene humidity variability in central Sweden

    Author : Sofia Andersson; Stefan Wastegård; Gunhild Rosqvist; Kristian Schoning; Frank Chambers; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; humidity change; stable isotopes; Chara spp; Pisidium spp; testate amoebae assemblages; humification; C N ratio; late Holocene; central Sweden; Quaternary geology; Kvartärgeologi; kvartärgeologi; Quarternary Geology;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to reconstruct humidity variability in central Sweden during the late Holocene. A multi-proxy approach was used to infer humidity changes as recorded in a lake and a mire. Age-models were constructed based on radiocarbon dating and the Askja-1875 tephra. READ MORE

  4. 4. Incorporation and preservation of geochemical fingerprints in peat archives

    Author : Sophia V. Hansson; Richard Bindler; Dominik Weiss; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Peat; Beryllium; bulk density; C N-ratio; decomposition; deposition; downwash; elemental mobility; geochemistry; humification; lead; light transmission; mercury; peat accumulation; precipitation; Environmental Science; miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : The present status of the environment, including environmental problems such as heavy metal accumulation in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, is in part the consequence of long-term changes. Cores from peatlands and other natural archives provide us with the potential to study aspects of the atmospheric cycling of elements, such as metal pollutants, on timescales much longer than the decade or two available to us with atmospheric deposition monitoring programs.

  5. 5. Studies on Baltic Sea mysids

    Author : Martin Ogonowski; Sture Hansson; Jörgen Berge; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mysids; hydroacoustics; Baltic Sea; abundance; stable isotopes; specific dynamic action SDA ; diel vertical migration; partial migration; trophic interactions; physiology; benthic-pelagic coupling; protein:DNA; C:N ratio; genetic structure; Marine Ecology; marin ekologi;

    Abstract : Mysid shrimps (Mysidacea, Crustacea) are efficient zooplanktivores in both marine and freshwater systems as well as lipid rich prey for many species of fish.  Although some efforts have been made to study the role of mysids in the Baltic Sea, very few studies have been carried out in recent time and there are still knowledge gaps regarding various aspects of mysid ecology.
