  1. 1. Holocene and Latest Glacial Paleoceanography in the North-Eastern Skagerrak

    Author : Richard Gyllencreutz; Jan Backman; Eve Arnold; Reidulv Bøe; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Skagerrak; Holocene; sediment; chirp sonar; grain size; mineral magnetic properties; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap;

    Abstract : Detailed information on past oceanographic and climatic changes is crucial for our understanding of natural climate variability and for the assessment of future climate variations. Sediments strongly influenced by the North Atlantic Current accumulate at high rates in the northeastern Skagerrak, forming a potential highresolution archive for information on past climatic and oceanographic processes and events.

  2. 2. Tracing and apportioning sources of dioxins using multivariate pattern recognition techniques

    Author : Anteneh Assefa; Mats Professor; Karin Professor; Paul Professor; Patrik Andersson; Shigeki Masunaga; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin; polychlorinated dibenzofuran; positive matrix fac- torization; PMF; principal component analysis; PCA; Baltic Sea; sediment core; PCDD F; sources; marine; fish; environmental half-live; peak year; peak level; temporal trend; spatial variation; coastal; offshore; chemical fingerprint; Environmental Science; miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : High levels of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) in edible fish in the Baltic Sea have raised health concerns in the Baltic region and the rest of Europe. Thus, there are urgent needs to characterize sources in order to formulate effective mitigation strategies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Quaternary paleoceanography of the Arctic Ocean : A study of sediment stratigraphy and physical properties

    Author : Emma Sellén; Martin Jakobsson; Jan Backman; Dorthe Klitgaard-Kristensen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arctic Ocean; sedimentology; Quaternary; stratigraphy; physical properties; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; Quaternary geology; Kvartärgeologi; Sedimentology; Sedimentologi; Marine Geoscience; marin geovetenskap;

    Abstract : A Quaternary perspective on the paleoceanographic evolution of the central Arctic Ocean has been obtained in this PhD thesis by studying sediment cores from all of the Arctic’s major submarine ridges and plateaus. The included cores were mainly recovered during the Healy-Oden Trans-Arctic expedition in 2005 and the Lomonosov Ridge off Greenland expedition in 2007. READ MORE

  4. 4. Holocene environmental changes and climate variability in the Eastern Mediterranean : Multiproxy sediment records from the Peloponnese peninsula, SW Greece

    Author : Christos Katrantsiotis; Stefan Wastegård; Rienk Smittenberg; Jan Risberg; Elin Norström; Sherilyn Fritz; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mediterranean; Greece; Peloponnese; Holocene; sediments; diatoms; n-alkanes; stable isotopes; tectonics; climate variability; monsoons; NAO; NCP; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : This thesis presents multiproxy reconstructions of the mid to late Holocene climate and environmental changes in the Peloponnese peninsula, SW Greece. The combined dataset consists of diatom, biomarker and X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF) elemental data in radiocarbon-dated sediment cores taken from the Agios Floros fen and the Gialova Lagoon in SW Peloponnese and the Ancient Lake Lerna in NE Peloponnese.
