  1. 1. Thermal adaptation along a latitudinal gradient in damselflies

    Author : Viktor Nilsson-Örtman; Frank Johansson; Karl Gotthard; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Growth rate; metabolic theory of ecology; universal temperature dependence; environmental gradients; thermal performance; thermal sensitivity; environmental variability; optimality theory; life history; acclimation; size structure; competition; cannibalism; intraguild predation;

    Abstract : Understanding how temperature affects biological systems is a central question in ecology and evolutionary biology. Anthropogenic climate change adds urgency to this topic, as the demise or success of species under climate change is expected to depend on how temperature affects important aspects of organismal performance, such as growth, development, survival and reproduction.

  3. 3. Diagenesis and Reservoir-Quality Evolution of Deep-Water Turbidites: Links to Basin Setting, Depositional Facies, and Sequence Stratigraphy

    Author : Howri Mansurbeg; Sadoon Morad; Ihsan Al-Aasm; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Bedrock geology; Diagenesis; reservoir quality; active margin; passive margin; depositional facies; sequence stratigraphy; Berggrundsgeologi;

    Abstract : A study of the distribution of diagenetic alterations and their impact on reservoir-quality evolution in four deep-water turbidite successions (Cretaceous to Eocene) from basins in active (foreland) and passive margins revealed the impact of tectonic setting, depositional facies, and changes in the relative sea level. Diagenetic modifications encountered in the turbiditic sandstones from the passive margin basins include dissolution and kaolinitization (kaolin has δ18OV-SMOW = +13. READ MORE

  4. 4. Investigation of the use of thorium in LWRs for improving reactor core performance

    Author : Cheuk Wah Lau; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Thorium; thermal margin; light water reactor;

    Abstract : Thorium is a fertile material and most of the past research has focused on breeding thorium into fissile material to achieve a more sustainable use of nuclear power. However, the focus in this report is on using thorium to improve reactor core performance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Performance Analysis and Optimal Design of Heat Exchangers and Heat Exchanger Networks
