  1. 1. Response of glaciers to climate change : Mass balance sensitivity, sea level rise and runoff

    Author : Mattias de Woul; Regine Hock; Peter Jansson; Margareta Hansson; Roger J. Braithwaite; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; glacier; mass balance modelling; mass balance sensitivity; sea level rise; glacial runoff; Hofsjökull; Storglaciären; Physical geography; Naturgeografi; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study is to enhance our understanding of the response of glaciers to climate change. Global sea level is affected by changes in glacier ice volume, and melt-water from glaciers is a principal water source in many regions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Appropriate Modelling Complexity: An Application to Mass Balance Modelling of Lake Vänern, Sweden

    Author : Magnus Dahl; Lars Håkanson; David I Wilson; Gesa Weyhenmeyer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Earth sciences; Lake Vänern; phosphorus; mass balance modelling; model complexity; Geovetenskap; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap;

    Abstract : This work is about finding an appropriate modelling complexity for a mass-balance model for phosphorus in Lake Vänern, Sweden. A statistical analysis of 30 years of water quality data shows that epilimnion and hypolimnion have different water quality and should be treated separately in a model. Further vertical division is not motivated. READ MORE

  3. 3. Predicting Ecosystem Response from Pollution in Baltic Archipelago areas using Mass-balance Modelling

    Author : Olof Magnus Karlsson; Andreas Bryhn; Lars Håkanson; Per Jonsson; Mikael Malmaeus; Kristoffer Naes; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Baltic Sea; archipelagos; aquatic ecosystems mass-balance modelling; sediment-water dynamics; phosphorus; dioxins; PCDD Fs; Other earth sciences; Övrig geovetenskap; Earth Science with specialization in Environmental Analysis; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot miljöanalys;

    Abstract : Baltic archipelago areas have high nature values despite being polluted from various antrophogenic activities within the Baltic Sea catchment area and from long-range transport of airborne substances. The discovery of environmental problems in the Baltic Sea in the 1960s led to countermeasures that gradually gave results in reducing the toxic pollution, e. READ MORE

  4. 4. Climatology and firn processes in the lower accumulation area of the Greenland ice sheet

    Author : Charalampos Charalampidis; Veijo Pohjola; Dirk van As; Rickard Pettersson; Douglas Benn; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; climate change; Greenland ice sheet; accumulation area; automatic weather stations; surface energy balance; melt–albedo feedback; surface mass budget; snow; firn; meltwater; percolation; refreezing; runoff;

    Abstract : The Greenland ice sheet is the largest Northern Hemisphere store of fresh water, and it is responding rapidly to the warming climate. In situ observations document the changing ice sheet properties in the lower accumulation area, Southwest Greenland. READ MORE

  5. 5. Risk from radionuclides: a frog's perspective : Accumulation of 137Cs in a riparian wetland, radiation doses, and effects on frogs and toads after low-dose rate exposure

    Author : Karolina Stark; Nils Kautsky; Petra Wallberg; Torbjörn Nylén; Michael Gilek; Dennis Woodhead; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; dose model; mass balance budget; overbank sedimentation; amphibian; phantom; thermoluminescence chip; radiosensitivity; DNA damage; Biology; Biologi;

    Abstract : Threats from man-made radionuclides include waste issues, increasing number of power plants, underground bomb testing, nuclear weapons, and “dirty bombs”. Until recently the ionizing radiation protection system focused on protecting humans with an implied protection of biota. READ MORE
