    Abstract : Cities, as home to the majority of the world’s people, are significant sites for addressing challenges of achieving sustainability and securing human wellbeing. Urban environments are complex social-ecological systems, and meeting these challenges requires better understandings of the interactions of social and ecological elements. READ MORE

  3. 3. Atmospheric transport of persistent organic pollutants to aquatic ecosystems

    University dissertation from Cecilia Agrell Ecology Building, S-223 62 Lund

    Author : Cecilia Agrell; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; Temperature; Latitude; Deposition; PCB; Baltic Sea; Ekologi;

    Abstract : The load of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) is considered high in the Baltic ecosystem. The Baltic Sea spans over 12 latitudes and the regional differences in climate affect the behavior of POPs. READ MORE
