  1. 1. The radium distribution in some Swedish soils and its effects on radon emanation

    University dissertation from Institutionen för anläggning och miljö

    Author : Cecilia Edsfeldt; KTH.; [2001]
    Keywords : distribution; emanation; extraction; glacial till; podzol; Ra; radium; radon; Rn; sequential soil; spodosol; Th; thorium; U; uranium; variability;

    Abstract : The aim of this study has been to clarify how the radiumdistribution in soils affects the radon emanation. Thedistribution of radium, uranium and thorium has been determinedusing sequential extractions. In the study, soils from twodifferent locations were investigated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Road traffic metals sources and emissions

    University dissertation from Kalmar

    Author : David Hjortenkrans; Högskolan i Kalmar.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Emission patterns; Heavy metals; Roadside soil; Sweden; Traffic; Sequential extractions; SFA; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Environmental chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Miljökemi; Miljökemi; Environmental Chemistry;

    Abstract : As the environmental regulations and technical progress have forced the factories’ old “end of pipe” solutions to improve, the metal emissions from point sources have decreased. Instead, the diffuse consumption emissions from goods in use now are in focus. READ MORE

  3. 3. Importance of the particle shape on mechanical properties of soil materials

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Juan Rodriguez; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Civil engineering and architecture - Geoengineering and mining engineering; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur - Geoteknik och gruvteknik; Soil Mechanics; Geoteknik;

    Abstract : Particle shape of soil aggregates is known to influence several engineering properties; such as the internal friction angle, the permeability, etc. Even if this is known, there has been only minor progress in explaining the processes behind its performance and has only partly implemented in practical geotechnical analysis.

  4. 4. Explaining temporal variations in soil respiration rates and delta13C in coniferous forest ecosystems

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Daniel Comstedt; Örebro universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Autotrophic; Boreal forest; Elevated CO2; 13C; Natural abundance of stable isotopes; Picea abies; PLS; Root respiration; Soil respiration; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; Biology; Biologi;

    Abstract : Soils of Northern Hemisphere forests contain a large part of the global terrestrial carbon (C) pool. Even small changes in this pool can have large impact on atmospheric [CO2] and the global climate. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sulphide-rich tailings remediated by soil cover evaluation of cover efficiency and tailings geochemistry, Kristineberg, northern Sweden

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Erik Carlsson; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Applied Geology; Tillämpad geologi;

    Abstract : The efficiency of soil cover as a method of remediation of sulphide-rich tailings has been studied at an impoundment at the Kristineberg mine, Northern Sweden. Two variations of soil cover were used in the remediation. The major part of the impoundment was covered with a 1.0 m layer of till where the groundwater table was shallow. READ MORE
