    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Serpentinisation; hydrocarbons; organic compounds; ultramafic; hydrothermal; geochemistry; origin of life; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Other earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Övrig geovetenskap; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Other chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Övrig kemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Exogenous earth sciences Exogenous geochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Exogen geovetenskap Exogen geokemi; geokemi; Geochemistry;

    Abstract : Natural gas, primarily methane (CH4), is produced in substantial amounts in ultramafic-hosted hydrothermal systems. These systems could also generate oil (heavier hydrocarbons) and the first building blocks of life (prebiotic molecules). In the presence of iron bearing minerals, serpentinisation reactions generate H2. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ocean chemistry and the evolution of multicellularity

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Geological Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Emma U. Hammarlund; Stockholms universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geochemistry; biology; paleontology; evolution; multicellularity; Geochemistry; geokemi;

    Abstract : Oxygen has been assumed to be a vital trigger for the evolution of multicellular life forms on Earth, partly based on its power to promote substantial energy flux in cell respiration and partly as biosynthesis of compounds like collagen require oxygen. However, the co-evolution of large life and the Earth’s chemical environment is not well understood at present, and there is particular disagreement in the field about whether the Cambrian explosion of animal life forms was a chemical or biological event.

  4. 4. Aqueous geochemistry of pit lakes two cases studies at Rävlidmyran and Udden, Sweden

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Lu Ming; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Applied Geology; Tillämpad geologi;

    Abstract : Two abandoned pit lakes in northern Sweden were studied in order to improve the understanding of the geochemistry of pit lakes, Rävlidmyran Pit Lake and Udden Pit Lake. Both lakes show strong similarity with other mining lakes in terms of low pH and high metal and sulphate contents. READ MORE

  5. 5. Nitrogen Cycling at Cold Climate Mine Sites in Northen Sweden

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Lino Nilsson; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nitrogen; Mining; Cycling; nutrients; Isotopes; Nitrogen-model; modelling; numerical-modelling; Isotope-tracing; Tracing; Isotope; geochemistry; Applied Geology; Tillämpad geologi;

    Abstract : High nitrogen discharge from mining sites has been an environmental issue that has been closely studied in the recent years. The environmental effects of high nitrogen discharge are mainly eutrophication, but can also lead to changed species composition and algae blooms. READ MORE
