  2. 2. Narrow-pore zeolites and zeolite-like adsorbents for CO2 separation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry (MMK), Stockholm University

    Author : Ocean Cheung; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; CO2 separation; zeolites; phosphates; titanium silicates; ion exchange; flue gas CO2 capture; biogas upgrading; materialkemi; Materials Chemistry;

    Abstract : A range of porous solid adsorbents were synthesised and their ability to separate and capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from gas mixtures was examined. CO2 separation from flue gas – a type of exhaust gas from fossil fuel combustion that consists of CO2 mixed with mainly nitrogen and biogas (consists of CO2 mixed with mainly methane) were explicitly considered.

  3. 3. Ocean circulation in the Amundsen Sea, West Antarctica

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry (MMK), Stockholm University

    Author : Ola Kalén; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ocean; currents; icebergs; remote sensing; ocean model;

    Abstract : The increase of mass loss from the Antarctic Ice Sheet is a significant contribution to global sea level rise. The most rapid changes are occurring in the Amundsen Sea area, where the thinning of the floating glaciers is assumed to be driven by the ocean. READ MORE

  4. 4. Digital technologies as support for learning about the marine environment: Steps toward ocean literacy Digital technologies and ocean literacy

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Geraldine Fauville; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; digital technologies; social media; ocean literacy; communication; science education; environmental education; sociocultural theory;

    Abstract : Over the last century the ocean has been negatively impacted by human activities. In order to continue benefitting from marine services and goods, and the qualities afforded to human life through the ocean, citizens need to be informed about their relationship to the ocean and their own impact on it, that is they need to be ocean literate.
