  1. 1. Nitrous oxide emission from soil : On extrapolation from soil environmental factors

    Author : Kerstin Robertson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; N20 emission; denitrification; soil factors; soil moisture; N03-; NH4 ; regression analysis; PLS analysis; IR remote sensing; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Abstract : Nitrous oxide(N20) is a natural component of the atmosphere which contributes both to the greenhouse effect and to the destruction of stratospheric ozone. National as well as global inventories indicate thatboth natural and anthropogenic emissions from terrestrial ecosystems constitute a large fraction of the annual loading of N20 on the atmosphere.

  2. 2. Air Pollution from Ships - Emission Measurements and Impact Assessments

    Author : Hulda Winnes; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fuel; air pollution; ships; impact assessment; emission measurement; ship emissions; emission inventory; manoeuvring ships; abatement;

    Abstract : Environmental impact and air pollution from ships have received increasing attention the last decades. Due to combustion characteristics of typical marine engines and a wide spread use of unrefined fuel, the global fleet emits significant amounts of SO2, NOX and particles to air. READ MORE

  3. 3. Remote Measurements of Gas and Particulate Matter Emissions from Individual Ships

    Author : Jörg Beecken; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : pollution; compliance monitoring; shipping; ship emission; particle emissions; identification of polluting ships; emission factors;

    Abstract : Shipping significantly contributes to the world's anthropogenic emissions of sulfur, nitrogen species and particulate matter. These species affect the global radiative forcing as well as local acidification, eutrophication and human health. READ MORE

  4. 4. Factors regulating the origin and magnitude of carbon dioxide emissions from high-latitude lakes

    Author : Hendricus Verheijen; Jan Karlsson; Cristian Gudasz; David A. Seekell; Marcus Klaus; Anne Ojala; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; lake; carbon dioxide; organic carbon; inorganic carbon; arctic; emission; environmental science; miljövetenskap; climate change; klimatförändringar; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : Lake ecosystems receive, transmit and process terrestrial carbon and thereby link terrestrial, aquatic and global carbon cycles. Most lakes evade CO2 to the atmosphere, but the annual magnitude of CO2 evasion, as well as sources and mechanisms underpinning CO2 evasion from lakes are still largely unresolved. READ MORE

  5. 5. Contributions to Emission, Exposure and Risk Assessment of Nanomaterials

    Author : Rickard Arvidsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; nanoparticles; particle flow analysis; emission assessment; titanium dioxide; graphene; silver; risk assessment; exposure assessment; Nanomaterials; substance flow analysis.;

    Abstract : In recent years, synthetic nanomaterials have begun to be produced and used in increasingly larger volumes. These materials may cause new or increased risks to the environment, but no harmonized methods for structured assessment of their environmental risks exist. READ MORE
