    Abstract : In Sweden the encapsulated nuclear waste will be surrounded by compacted bentonite in the granitic host rock. In contact with water-bearing fractures the bentonite barrier may release montmorillonite colloids that may be further transported in groundwater. READ MORE

  2. 2. Particulate airborne impurities : express analysis and health effects

    University dissertation from ; Department of Chemistry, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Kai Wilkinson; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The cumulative effects of air pollutants are of principal concern in research on environmental protection in Sweden. Post-industrial society has imposed many limits on emitted air pollutants, yet the number of reports on the negative effects from them is increasing, largely due to human activity in the form of industrial emissions and increased traffic flows.

    Abstract : Today, assessment of the health of coastal waters is recognized as being important for both the conservation of nature and well-being of humans. Anthropogenic pollution has been the focus of extensive research for some time and a variety of programs for the monitoring and assessment of environmental pollution have been developed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Proteomics in biomarker research Insights into the effects of aging and environment on biological systems

    Author : Hanna Amelina; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; proteomics; biomarker; peroxisomes; 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis 2-DE ; mass spectrometry MS ; aging; marine pollution; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Environmental chemistry Environmental toxicology; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Miljökemi Miljötoxikologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Proteomics is the global analysis of proteins that covers a broad range of technologies aimed at determining the identity and quantity of proteins expressed in the cell, their three-dimensional structure and interaction partners. In contrast to genome, proteome reflects more accurately on the dynamic state of the cell, tissue, or an organism. READ MORE

  5. 5. Biomarkers in perch (Perca fluviatilis) used in environmental monitoring of the Stockholm recipient and background areas in the Baltic Sea

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för tillämpad miljövetenskap (ITM)

    Author : Tomas Hansson; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]

    Abstract : This thesis reports the results of biomarker measurements in three environmental monitoring projects. In the first project, which was part of the Swedish national environmental monitoring, biomarkers were measured annually in female perch (Perca fluviatilis) in two background areas in the Baltic Sea during 1988–2000, resulting in a unique 13-year series of measurements.
