  1. 1. Dissolved organic matter in lakes Chemical diversity and continuum of reactivity

    University dissertation from uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Alina Mostovaya; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; dissolved organic matter; DOM; dissolved organic carbon; DOC; PARAFAC; reactivity continuum model; ultrahigh resolution mass spectrometry; FT-ICR-MS; organic matter characterization; decomposition kinetics; baseline metabolism; Biology with specialization in Limnology; Biologi med inriktning mot limnologi;

    Abstract : Dissolved organic matter (DOM) is the largest pool of organic carbon in aquatic systems and an important component of the global carbon cycle. Large amounts of DOM are decomposed within lakes, resulting in fluxes of CO2 and CH4 to the atmosphere. READ MORE

  2. 2. Carbon Dioxide in Inland Waters Drivers and Mechanisms Across Spatial and Temporal Scales

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna Cecilia Nydahl; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; carbon dioxide; dissolved organic carbon; inland water; lake; stream; groundwater; mesocosm; carbonate system; carbon; Biology with specialization in Limnology; Biologi med inriktning mot limnologi;

    Abstract : Inland waters are an essential component of the global carbon cycle as they are very active sites for carbon transformation processes. Much of this carbon is transformed into the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) and emitted into the atmosphere. READ MORE

  3. 3. Molecular-level dissolved organic matter dynamics in lakes Constraints on reactivity and persistence

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anne Marie Kellerman; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; dissolved organic matter; DOM; dissolved organic carbon; organic matter characterization; fluorescence; PARAFAC; molecular weight; mass spectrometry; FT-ICR-MS; boreal lakes; Biology with specialization in Limnology; Biologi med inriktning mot limnologi;

    Abstract : Dissolved organic matter (DOM) is a central component of the global carbon cycle. Thus, small changes to the amount of DOM imported, processed and produced within lakes can have a large effect on regional carbon budgets. In addition to being a vital energy source at the base of the aquatic food web, DOM is physico-chemically reactive. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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.

  5. 5. Lake Dissolved Organic Matter Quantity and Quality Variability across Temporal and Spatial Scales

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Roger André Müller; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; dissolved organic matter; organic carbon; CDOM; lakes; Biology with specialization in Limnology; Biologi med inriktning mot limnologi;

    Abstract : Surface waters receive large amounts of dissolved organic matter (DOM) via runoff from land. The DOM is rich in organic carbon that serves as an energy source for the aquatic biota. During uptake of this energy, aquatic organisms mineralize organic carbon. READ MORE
