  1. 1. Organic carbon dynamics in the Baltic Sea A modelling perspective

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University

    Author : Filippa Fransner; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; carbon cycle; organic carbon; primary production; remineralisation; terrestrial DOC; extracellular DOC; flexible stoichiometry; Redfield ratio; air-sea CO2 exchange; pCO2; coupled 3D physical-biogeochemical modelling; Gulf of Bothnia; Baltic Sea; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi;

    Abstract : Coastal seas constitute a link between land and the open ocean, and therefore play an important role in the global carbon cycle. Large amounts of carbon, of both terrestrial and marine origin, transit and are transformed in these waters, which belong to the more productive areas of the oceans. READ MORE

  2. 2. Flocculation of Allochthonous Dissolved Organic Matter – a Significant Pathway of Sedimentation and Carbon Burial in Lakes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Author : Eddie von Wachenfeldt; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; flocculation; dissolved organic carbon; allochthonous; carbon sequestration; carbon cycle; boreal lakes; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Freshwater ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Limnisk ekologi;

    Abstract : Inland waters receive substantial amounts of organic carbon from adjacent watersheds. Only about half of the carbon exported from inland waters reaches the oceans, while the remainder is lost en route. This thesis identifies flocculation as an important and significant fate of carbon in the boreal landscape. READ MORE

  3. 3. Waterborne Carbon in Northern Streams Controls on dissolved carbon transport across sub-arctic Scandinavia

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

    Author : Elin Jantze; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; dissolved carbon; DOC; DIC; TOC; sub-arctic; hydrology; Abisko; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : Waterborne carbon (C) forms an active and significant part of the global C cycle, which is important in theArctic where greater temperature increases and variability are anticipated relative to the rest of the globe withpotential implications for the C cycle. Understanding and quantification of the current processes governing themovement of C by connecting terrestrial and marine systems is necessary to better estimate future changes ofwaterborne C.

  4. 4. The role of inland waters in the carbon cycle at high latitudes

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Erik Lundin; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; lakes; streams; carbon C ; carbon dioxide CO2 ; methane CH4 ; dissolved inorganic carbon DIC ; boreal; sub-arctic; arctic; emission; sediments; burial; budget; limnologi; Limnology; Earth Sciences with Specialization Environmental Analysis; geovetenskap med inriktning mot miljöanalys; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : Understanding the drivers of climate change requires knowledge about the global carbon (C) cycle. Although inland waters play an important role in the C cycle by emitting and burying C, streams and lakes are in general overlooked in bottom-up approached C budgets. READ MORE

  5. 5. Land-atmosphere exchange of carbon in a high-Arctic wet tundra ecosystem

    University dissertation from Lunds universitets geografiska institution

    Author : Torbern Tagesson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; carbon; methane; carbon dioxide; climate change; Arctic; NDVI; NDWI; micrometeorology; remote sensing; chamber; tundra;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Under den senaste tiden har problematiken med klimatförändringarna debatterats livligt. För att kunna förutspå den framtida omfattningen av klimatförändringarna och vilka konsekvenser dessa kommer att ha är det ytterst relevant att känna till utbytet av växthusgaser mellan atmosfär och jordens alla ekosystem.
