  1. 1. Neonatal water and heat exchange : The influence of environmental factors and infant maturity

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Gunnar Sjörs; Uppsala universitet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pediatrics; Neonatal; transepidermal water loss; respiratory water loss; radiant heat; heat exchange; water loss; incubators; Pediatrik; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Paediatric medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Pediatrisk medicin; pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Abstract : The environment provided by commonly used infant incubators, the effect of radiantheat and exposure to cold air on the exchange of water and heat between newborninfants and their environment, and the water loss through the skin of infants born at24-25 weeks of gestation were investigated. The evaporation of water from the skinwas measured by the gradient method. READ MORE

  2. 2. Tracking changes in dissolved natural organic matter composition

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elin Lavonen; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2015]

    Abstract : During the last decades, the abundance of dissolved organic matter (DOM), a complex heterogeneous mixture of organic compounds, has increased in many surface waters in Northern Europe and North America. Surface waters are widely used as raw water sources for drinking water production. READ MORE

  3. 3. Water oxidation From Molecular Systems to Functional Devices

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

  4. 4. Water erosion modeling using fractal rainfall disaggregation- a study in semiarid Tunisia

    University dissertation from Lund University (Media-Tryck)

    Author : Sihem Jebari; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; reservoir siltation; regionalization; fractal analysis; Atlasic mountain range; erosive events; semiarid area; soil loss; Tunisia.;

    Abstract : In the Tunisian semiarid area, water erosion processes have led to negative economic and environmental consequences in a context of limited water resources. To characterize and predict these degradation phenomena, a comprehensive high-resolution data base on erosive rainfall, together with siltation records for 28 small reservoirs were analyzed.

  5. 5. Response of Bolivian Altiplano Lakes to Seasonal and Annual Climate Variations

    University dissertation from Water Resources Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Ramiro Pillco; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENSO; terminal lake; bathymetry; lake level; water balance; lake routing; paleolakes; climate change; precipitation pattern; intermittent rivers.; Desaguadero River; Lake Titicaca; Lake Poopó;

    Abstract : The Bolivian Altiplano is situated between two mountain ranges, the western and eastern central Andes in South America. It has two major lakes, Lake Titicaca to the north, and Lake Poopó to the south, which both are important for the nature as well as for the living conditions on the Altiplano. The two lakes are the remnants of large paleolakes. READ MORE
