  1. 1. Microbial Risks in Surface Water Sources

    Author : Johan Åström; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Surface water; Bifidobacteria; Microbial source tracking; Cryptosporidium.; QMRA; Flow-weighted sampling; Pathogens; Bacteroidales; Stochastic modelling; qPCR;

    Abstract : Microbial risks need to be properly handled for the provision of healthy drinking water. The mitigation of pathogens in the water source lowers the risk for infection associated with nominal and suboptimal drinking water treatment. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hydrodynamic modelling of microbial water quality in drinking water sources

    Author : Ekaterina Sokolova; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; faecal contamination; QMRA; faecal indicators; pathogens; risk assessment; microbial source tracking; Bacteroidales; E. coli;

    Abstract : The faecal contamination of water sources can cause waterborne disease outbreaks among drinking water consumers. To design drinking water treatment and minimise consumer health risks, knowledge on source water quality is needed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Microbial DNA Sequencing in Environmental Studies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Yue Hu; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DNA sequencing; Metabarcoding; Microbial ecology; Baltic Sea; Microbial community; Illumina; Oxford Nanopore; Source tracking; Stormwater; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : The field of microbial ecology has just entered a new era of rapid technological development and generation of big data. The high-throughput sequencing techniques presently available provide an opportunity to extensively inventorize the blueprints of life. READ MORE

  4. 4. Hydrodynamic and Microbiological Modelling of Water Quality in Drinking Water Sources

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ekaterina Sokolova; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ECO Lab; Bacteroidales; inactivation; microcosm experiment; fate and transport modelling; pathogens; microbial source tracking; MIKE 3; faecal indicators;

    Abstract : Faecal contamination of drinking water sources poses risks for waterborne disease outbreaks. To manage these risks the fate and transport of faecal contamination in a drinking water source need to be understood and quantitatively described. READ MORE

  5. 5. Analysis and speciation of organic phosphorus in environmental matrices Development of methods to improve 31P NMR analysis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Johan Vestergren; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Phosphorus; soil; 31P NMR; NaOH EDTA; terrestrial; sulfide; speciation; bioavailability; paramagnetic; humus; boreal; tropical; multi-dimensional; agroforestry; chronosequence; fysikalisk kemi; Physical Chemistry;

    Abstract : Phosphorus (P) is an essential element for life on our planet. It is central in numerous biochemical processes in terrestrial and aqueous ecosystems including food production; and it is the primary growth-limiting nutrient in some of the world’s biomes. READ MORE
