  1. 1. Assessing reactive nitrogen flows in European agricultural systems

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Rasmus Einarsson; [2017]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; food; nitrogen indicator; nitrogen budget; nitrogen; agriculture; nitrogen footprint; uncertainties;

    Abstract : In most ecosystems, nitrogen is a scarce and growth-limiting nutrient. Natural and anthropogenic processes convert unreactive atmospheric dinitrogen (N2) into reactive, bioavailable, nitrogen. READ MORE

  2. 2. Responses of peatland vegetation to enhanced nitrogen

    University dissertation from Umeå : Ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Magdalena Wiedermann; Umeå universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sphagnum; nitrogen; peatlands; soluble amino acids; gradient study; field experiment; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi;

    Abstract : Human alteration of the global nitrogen (N) cycle has had major impacts on naturally N-limited ecosystems worldwide. Peatlands, dominated by peat mosses, Sphagnum species, represent one such sensitive ecosystem. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nutrient Limitation of Bacterial Growth in Soil

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Fredrik Demoling; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ekologi; Ecology; Fertilization; Bacteria; Soil; Fungi; Thymidine or Leucine incorporation; Growth limitation; Phosphorus; Nitrogen; Carbon;

    Abstract : Lack of carbon has been assumed to be the most common limiting factor for bacterial growth in soil, although there are reports of limitation by nitrogen and phosphorus. I have studied nutrient limitation of bacterial growth in soil using a novel technique, where thymidine or leucine incorporation is used to detect changes in growth rates after adding nutrients.

  4. 4. The Effect of Ladle Treatment on Steel Cleanness in Tool Steels

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Karin Steneholm; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; oxygen activity; inclusion characteristics; vacuum degassing; desulphurization; slag; ladle; hydrogen; nitrogen; deslagging; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : The aim of the present work was to get an overview of the steel cleanness in tool steel. Plant trial studies of three steel grades were done with different focuses.Firstly the change of the inclusion characteristics during the vacuum degassing in the ladle was looked upon. READ MORE

  5. 5. SBR-technology - use and potential applications for treatment of cold wastewater

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Stig Morling; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Intermittent operation; Water temperature; nitrogen; phosphorus; SBR; reaction rates; TECHNOLOGY Other technology Environmental engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper Miljöteknik;

    Abstract : Biological nutrient removal is used as an indicator of SBR performance at nine different SBRplants operated for a long period at low water temperatures (5 – 10oC). Typically needed aeratedSRT (Solids Residence Time) for complete nitrification is found to be in the range of 6 – 10 days. READ MORE
