  1. 1. The Bentonite Barrier - Swelling Properties, Redox Chemistry and Mineral Evolution

    Author : Daniel Svensson; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; montmorillonite; bentonite; smectite; freezing; thawing; hydration; intercalation; four-water-layer; ethylene glycol; X-ray diffraction; time-resolved; spatial-resolution; XANES; Fe; redox; iron; ABM; TBT; Äspö;

    Abstract : Bentonite is planned for use as a buffer material in high-level radioactive waste repositories, where safety assessment is performed for very long periods (100-1000 ka). This thesis focuses on the swelling of smectites in liquid water, and analysis of bentonite from field experiments at Äspö Hard Rock Laboratory, Sweden. READ MORE

  2. 2. Assessing environmental and contaminant stressors in a benthic amphipod

    Author : Therese Jacobson; Brita Sundelin; Tamara Galloway; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Multiple stressors; Reproduction; Temperature; Food; Parasites; Fenarimol; PFOS; TBT; Endocrine disruption; Ecdysteroids; Microsporidia; Microcosm; Crustacea; Amhipoda; Monoporeia affinis; Biology; Biologi; tillämpad miljövetenskap; Applied Environmental Science;

    Abstract : Organisms in the aquatic environment encounter numerous stressors throughout their lifespan. Some of them are biotic such as food availability, predators and parasites. Others are abiotic and include shifting salinity and temperature change among others. READ MORE

  3. 3. Management and Treatment of Organotin and Metal Contaminated Dredged Sediment

    Author : Anna Norén; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : electrolysis; Fenton’s reagent; multicriteria analysis MCA ; metals; tributyltin TBT ; zinc Zn ; life cycle assessment LCA ; copper Cu ; dredged sediment; stabilization and solidification S S ;

    Abstract : Modern society is dependent on international trade and most traded goods are transported by sea. To enable this, regular dredging must be done to maintain water depth in ports and waterways, resulting in large quantities of often contaminated sediment that must be handled. READ MORE

  4. 4. A ‘More Economic Approach’ to WTO Law’s Relevant Market Definition, Trade Harm, and Quantification of Trade Effects and Countermeasures : A Normative Law and Economics Comparison with EU Competition Law

    Author : Marios C. Iacovides; Torbjörn Andersson; Maria Bergström; Freya Baetens; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; EU competition law; WTO law; public international law; antitrust; merger appraisal; dispute settlement; world trade; law and economics; comparative law; effects-based approach; theories of harm; definition of the relevant market; damages; fines; quantification; discrimination; less favourable treatment; national treatment; MFN treatment; GATT; GATS; TBT Agreement; SPS Agreement; SCM Agreement; Anti-Dumping Agreement; subsidies; anti-dumping; countervailing duties; Europarätt; European Integration Law; Public International Law; Folkrätt; Civil Law; Civilrätt;

    Abstract : Having recently registered the 500th dispute at its docket, the WTO dispute settlement system is as prolific and relevant as ever. By almost any measure, it is a great success; it has contributed to bolstering the WTO’s legitimacy, increased the judicialisation of WTO Members’ trade relations, and promoted the scientification of public international law.

  5. 5. Apoptosis in chronic inflammation, with specific reference to airway disease

    Author : Malin Müller; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Apoptosis; asthma; chronic inflammation; lung; sarcoidosis; tributyltin TBT ;

    Abstract : Mechanisms governing the normal resolution processes of inflammation in the lung are poorly understood, yet their elucidation may lead to a greater understanding of the pathogenesis of several pulmonary inflammatory disorders. The elimination of activated lymphocytes by apoptosis is one prerequisite for resolution, and knowledge concerning the role of apoptosis in chronic inflammation is still far from complete. READ MORE
