  1. 1. Novel approaches in modeling of soil carbon : Upscaling theories and energetics

    Author : Arjun Chakrawal; Stefano Manzoni; Hyun-Seob Song; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Microorganisms; soil C cycling; spatial heterogeneity; energetics; thermodynamics; microbial metabolism; calorespirometric ratio; microbial traits; heat dissipation; microscale; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : Soils contain more carbon (C) than terrestrial (above ground) and atmospheric carbon combined. Mismanagement of soil C could lead to increased greenhouse gas emissions, whereas practices leading to increased C storage would help mitigate climate change while improving soil fertility and ecological functions.

  2. 2. Mechanical properties of excavated sulfur rich soil stabilized with cement - A laboratory and field experiment

    Author : Alaleh Ziagharib; Christian Maurice; Josef Macsik; Qi Jia; Jan Laue; Bo Vesterberg; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Sulfur-rich soil; Mixing; Sampling; Unconfined compressive strength; stabilization; Porosity; Water content; Consistency limits; Geoteknik; Soil Mechanics;

    Abstract : Sulfide soils are silty soils, often found in saturated conditions, under the groundwater level. Characteristics of these soils, including particle size distribution and consistency limits along with chemical composition and environmental properties, cause excavation to be necessary for construction purposes.

  3. 3. Relations between soil organic carbon, soil structure and physical processes in an agricultural topsoil : The role of soil mineral constituents

    Author : Jumpei Fukumasu; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Abstract : A better understanding of the interactions between soil organic carbon (SOC) and mineral constituents (e.g. clay and reactive oxide phases) and their consequences for soil structure and physical processes is important for assessing the potential for, and benefits of, carbon sequestration in arable soils.

  4. 4. Stabilization of fine-grained soils in cold environment and exposed to seasonal frost : By-products as hydraulic binders

    Author : Mirja Rothhämel; Jan Laue; Sven Knutsson; Craig Lake; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; soft soil; clay; silt; silty sand; soil stabilisation; hydraulic binder; cement; lime; by-product; cement kiln dust CKD ; cold climate; frost; freeze-thaw; laboratory test; field test; subsoil; road construction; feinkörninge Böden; Ton; Schluff; schluffiger Sand; Bodenstabilisierung; hydraulische Bindemittel; Zement; Kalk; Nebenprodukt; Zementofenstaub; kaltes Klima; Frost; Frost-Tau; Laborversuche; Feldversuche; Verkehrsbau; Dauerhaftigkeit; finkornig jord; lera; silt; siltig sand; jordstabilisering; hydraulisk bindemedel; cement; kalk; biprodukt; cement kiln dust CKD ; kallt klimat; frost; frysning-tining; laboratorieanalyser; fältförsök; vägterrass; Geoteknik; Soil Mechanics;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis deals with the stabilization of fine-grained soils using by-product originated hydraulic binders. The use of fine-grained soils as subsoil for infrastructure projects is often limited because of the risk for instability. READ MORE

  5. 5. Assessment of trace element stabilization in soil

    Author : Jurate Kumpiene; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Waste Science and Technology; Avfallsteknik;

    Abstract : The thesis deals with the remediation of trace element contaminated soil by the chemical stabilization technique. The objective is to complement the knowledge about possibilities of applying the stabilization either (1) as an alternate soil remediation method to excavation and landfilling or (2) for a pre-treatment of contaminated soil before landfilling.
