  1. 1. Studies in Glacier Mass Balance Measurement and its errors

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography, Stockholm University

    Author : Andrew Mercer; Peter Jansson; Gunhild Rosqvist; Ian Brown; Jonathan Carrivick; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Glaciology; Mass Balance; Measurement Errors; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : The study of the surface mass balance of valley glaciers has a long history but one that is dogged by uncertainty and errors, and uncertainty about those errors. These problems are acknowledged by the glaciological community and have been examined and formalised in several publications. READ MORE

  2. 2. Response of glaciers to climate change : Mass balance sensitivity, sea level rise and runoff

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för naturgeografi och kvartärgeologi

    Author : Mattias de Woul; Regine Hock; Peter Jansson; Margareta Hansson; Roger J. Braithwaite; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; glacier; mass balance modelling; mass balance sensitivity; sea level rise; glacial runoff; Hofsjökull; Storglaciären; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Exogenous earth sciences Physical geography; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Exogen geovetenskap Naturgeografi; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study is to enhance our understanding of the response of glaciers to climate change. Global sea level is affected by changes in glacier ice volume, and melt-water from glaciers is a principal water source in many regions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fluorine mass balance in wildlife and consumer products How much organofluorine are we missing?

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Lara Schultes; Jonathan P. Benskin; Michael McLachlan; Jörg Feldmann; Elsie M. Sunderland; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PFASs; PFOS; fluorine mass balance; organofluorine; EOF; TF; wildlife; consumer products; combustion ion chromatography; high resolution mass spectrometry; suspect screening; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are a class of anthropogenic pollutants. Many PFASs are highly persistent and have been linked to adverse effects in humans. According to latest estimates, there are more than 4700 PFASs in global commerce, which poses immense challenges for environmental monitoring. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mass balance of perfluoroalkyl acids in the Baltic Sea

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Applied Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University

    Author : Marko Filipovic; Urs Berger; Michael McLachlan; Bert Ove Lund; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PFOA; PFOS; mass balance; Baltic Sea; PFOA; PFOS; massbalans; Östersjön; Environmental Chemistry; miljökemi;

    Abstract : Perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) are man-made chemicals. Their unique properties make them beneficial for a wide range of industrial and consumer applications, such as constituents in fire fighting foams, hydraulic oils and food packaging materials. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fate of perfluoroalkyl acids in the aquatic environment with a focus on mass balance studies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Applied Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University

    Author : Marko Filipovic; Urs Berger; Michael McLachlan; Crispin Halsall; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PFAA; PFOS; AFFF; tap water; ground water; WWTP; mass balance; atmospheric deposition; rivers; Baltic Sea; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are man-made chemicals. Their unique properties make them beneficial for a wide range of industrial and consumer product applications, such as in aqueous film forming foam (AFFF), durable water repellent clothing, hydraulic oils and food packaging materials.
