  1. 1. Nitrate stable isotopes and major ions in snow and ice from Svalbard

    Author : Carmen Paulina Vega Riquelme; V. A. Pohjola; R. Pettersson; E. Isaksson; C. E. Bøggild; Kumiko Goto-Azuma; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : nitrate stable isotopes; nitrate; NOx proxies; ice cores; percolation; ion relocation; Svalbard; stabila isotoper av nitrat; nitrat; indikator för kväveoxider; iskärnor; perkolation; joniska omlokalisering; Svalbard; Earth Science with specialization in Physical Geography; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot naturgeografi;

    Abstract : Increasing atmospheric reactive nitrogen (Nr), as consequence of human activities, has generated accumulation of nitrate (NO3-) in Arctic regions. The Arctic has fragile nitrogen limited ecosystems that can be altered by increases of dry or wet deposition of Nr. READ MORE

  2. 2. Dietary inorganic nitrate : role in exercise physiology, cardiovascular and metabolic regulation

    Author : Filip J. Larsen; Jon Lundberg; Eddie Weitzberg; Björn Ekblom; Victor M Darley-Usmar; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : Nitric oxide (NO) is a ubiquitous signaling molecule with a vast number of tasks in the body, including regulation of cardiovascular and metabolic function. A decreased bioavailability of NO is a central event in disorders such as hypertension and metabolic syndrome. READ MORE

  3. 3. Electropermutation assisted by ion-exchange textile : removal of nitrate from drinking water

    Author : Carl-Ola Danielsson; Anders Dahlkild; Mårten Behm; Anna Velin; Gerald Pourcelly; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Ion-exchange textile; Ion-exchange membrane; Electropermutation; Electroextraction; Electrodialysis; Electrodeionisation; Modeling; Conducting spacer; Nitrate removal; Water treatment; Water dissociation; Fluid mechanics; Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract : Increased levels of nitrate in ground water have made many wells unsuitable as sources for drinking water. In this thesis an ion-exchang eassisted electromembrane process, suitable for nitrate removal, is investigated both theoretically and experimentally. READ MORE

  4. 4. Uptake of and Preference for Nitrate, Ammonium and Amino Acids by Understory Species in Deciduous Forests

    Author : Magnus Zätterström; Infektionsmedicin; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Soil Science; agricultural hydrology; Lantbrukshydrologi; marklära; Fixation of nitrogen; Kvävefixering; Växtekologi; Plant ecology; wild plants.; understory; rhizosphere; preference; oak forests; NRA; nitrification; nitrate; delta15N; 15N; glutamate; glycine; drying-rewetting; amino acids; ammonium;

    Abstract : AbstractThe uptake of different nitrogen forms by understory species was studied in field and laboratory. Species of the understory in deciduous forests have previously been thought to take up and assimilate only inorganic nitrogen sources. READ MORE

  5. 5. Enhanced Biological Phosphorus Removal - Carbon Sources, Nitrate as Electron Acceptor, and Characterisation of the Sludge Community

    Author : Magnus Christensson; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; activated sludge; nitrate; carbon source; PAO; polyphosphate accumulating organisms; enhanced biological phosphorus removal; EBPR; characterisation; Biotechnology; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : Enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) was studied in laboratory scale experiments as well as in a full scale EBPR process. The studies were focused on carbon source transformations, the use of nitrate as an electron acceptor and characterisation of the microflora. READ MORE
