  1. 16. Epidemiological studies including new methods for cluster analysis of acute childhood leukaemia and brain tumours in Sweden

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Women's and Children's Health

    Author : Ulf Hjalmars; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epidemiology; childhood; leukaemia; brain tumours; geographical information systerns; cluster analysis; Scan statistic; Knox test; environmental factors;

    Abstract : Background. The aetiology in childhood cancer is essentially unknown. Epidemiological investigations as to whether the incidence rates have changed for paediatric cancers or whether clustering of cases occur may give clues to possible causal factors. READ MORE

  2. 17. Reclamation of acid-generating waste rock by in-pit backfilling and sealing An evaluation of the Kimheden mine site, northern Sweden

    University dissertation from Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Lucile Villain; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Applied Geology; Tillämpad geologi;

    Abstract : The notion of mine site reclamation is very recent compared to the history of mining. In thepast, mine sites were left as is following termination of the operations, but modern regulationsrequire anticipation of long-term contamination of the surrounding environment and return ofthe land to a sustainable use.

    Abstract : Water is a basic human need, afinite source of life support system, having its economicvalues being the key to the prosperity. The effects ofindustrial-pollutant sources on the groundwater system wereevaluated at Ludhiana, Punjab, India. READ MORE

  4. 19. Structure and function of microbial communities in acid sulfate soil and the terrestrial deep biosphere

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Abstract : Dredging activities at ports and harbors are inevitable for safe navigation of ships and vessels. The outcomes of dredging are huge volumes of dredged materials, which can range from very fine and contaminated sediments to sands and gravels. The coarse sands and gravels can be directly used in civil engineering applications. READ MORE
