  1. 1. Dissolved organic matter in lakes : Chemical diversity and continuum of reactivity

    Author : Alina Mostovaya; Lars Tranvik; Colin Stedmon; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : dissolved organic matter; DOM; dissolved organic carbon; DOC; PARAFAC; reactivity continuum model; ultrahigh resolution mass spectrometry; FT-ICR-MS; organic matter characterization; decomposition kinetics; baseline metabolism; Biologi med inriktning mot limnologi; Biology with specialization in Limnology;

    Abstract : Dissolved organic matter (DOM) is the largest pool of organic carbon in aquatic systems and an important component of the global carbon cycle. Large amounts of DOM are decomposed within lakes, resulting in fluxes of CO2 and CH4 to the atmosphere. READ MORE

  2. 2. Waterborne Carbon in Northern Streams : Controls on dissolved carbon transport across sub-arctic Scandinavia

    Author : Elin Jantze; Steve W. Lyon; Georgia Destouni; Helen Dahlke; Pirkko Kortelainen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; dissolved carbon; DOC; DIC; TOC; sub-arctic; hydrology; Abisko; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : Waterborne carbon (C) forms an active and significant part of the global C cycle, which is important in theArctic where greater temperature increases and variability are anticipated relative to the rest of the globe withpotential implications for the C cycle. Understanding and quantification of the current processes governing themovement of C by connecting terrestrial and marine systems is necessary to better estimate future changes ofwaterborne C.

  3. 3. Organic carbon dynamics in the Baltic Sea : A modelling perspective

    Author : Filippa Fransner; Jonas Nycander; Christoph Humborg; Andreas Oschlies; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; carbon cycle; organic carbon; primary production; remineralisation; terrestrial DOC; extracellular DOC; flexible stoichiometry; Redfield ratio; air-sea CO2 exchange; pCO2; coupled 3D physical-biogeochemical modelling; Gulf of Bothnia; Baltic Sea; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : Coastal seas constitute a link between land and the open ocean, and therefore play an important role in the global carbon cycle. Large amounts of carbon, of both terrestrial and marine origin, transit and are transformed in these waters, which belong to the more productive areas of the oceans. READ MORE

  4. 4. Impacts of global change on primary production in northern lakes

    Author : Isolde Callisto Puts; Ann-Kristin Bergström; Jenny Ask; Tom H. Andersen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Primary production; global change; warming; browning; lake; carbon dioxide; organic carbon; inorganic carbon; boreal; arctic; DOC; DIC; CO2; allochthonous organic carbon; benthic; periphyton; environmental change; miljöförändringar; environmental science; miljövetenskap; biology; biologi; climate change; klimatförändringar;

    Abstract : Algae are primary producers, a major component of the aquatic foodweb, and changes in primary production affect aquatic ecology in general. Global changes such as warming, recovery of acidification and changes in land-use have caused warming and browning of northern lakes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reactive dissolved organic carbon dynamics in a changing environment : Experimental evidence from soil and water

    Author : Balathandayuthabani Panneer Selvam; Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dissolved organic carbon; DOC; Photodegradation; Biodegradation; DOC reactivity;

    Abstract : Dissolved organic carbon (DOC) is the major form of organic carbon in aquatic ecosystems. Biological and photochemical degradation of DOC are major causes of greenhouse gas emissions from aquatic ecosystems. READ MORE
