  1. 1. Pollution, Health and Housing Markets : Essays on the Consequences of Environmental Policy

    Author : Samuel Lindgren; Niclas Krüger; Jan-Erik Swärdh; Niklas Jakobsson; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; noise; air pollution; health; housing; environmental valuation; distributional effects;

    Abstract : The objective of the thesis is to estimate the health and housing market effects of environmental policies and estimate how these effects are distributed among individuals.The first essay estimates the health effects of a noise mitigation program that provided dwelling insulation and noise barriers.

  2. 2. Air pollution and dementia in a low exposure setting : the role of noise, olfaction, and theapoe gene

    Author : John Andersson; Maria Nordin; Anna Oudin; Anna Sundström; Tom Russ; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Air pollution; Road traffic; NOx; dementia; APOE; Alzheimer’s disease; Apolipoprotein E; olfaction; particulate matter; vascular dementia; odor identification; odor detection; Psychology; psykologi;

    Abstract : Previous research indicates an association between air pollution exposure, and risk of dementia. Still, a number of factors that may play a role in this association remain to be explored. READ MORE

  3. 3. Impacts of urbanisation on birds : Disentangling the effects of multiple pollutants on avian behaviour and physiology

    Author : Ann-Kathrin Ziegler; Evolutionär ekologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; artificial light at night; ALAN; antioxidants; great tit; light pollution; LPS; multi-stressor; noise pollution; tropospheric ozone; urbanisation; zebra finch;

    Abstract : Anthropogenic pollution is a pervasive feature of urbanisation, reaching into ecosystems worldwide and posing novel challenges to wildlife. Not surprisingly, differences in behaviour, and physiology, have been found between urban and rural populations. READ MORE

  4. 4. Physics-based Modelling for Aircraft Noise and Emission Predictions

    Author : Evangelia Maria Thoma; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; measurements; trajectories.; emissions; interdependencies; FDR; turbofan engine; aircraft noise; physics-based modelling;

    Abstract : Starting from semi-empirical noise source models for the aircraft and 4D trajectory computations, this work focuses on the environmental assessment of scenario studies regarding technology evaluation and procedural planning. Extensive work was performed on improving and validating the existing tools. READ MORE

  5. 5. Traffic noise and cardiovascular disease

    Author : Jenny Selander; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Traffic noise is an increasing problem in urban areas worldwide, but health effects in relation to traffic noise exposure are not well understood. Several studies show that noise may give rise to acute stress reactions, possibly leading to cardiovascular effects, but the evidence is limited on cardiovascular risks associated with traffic noise exposure.
