  1. 1. Secondary aerosol formation from dimethyl sulfide - Smog chamber experiments and detailed process modelling

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kärnfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Dana Lüdemann; [2020]
    Keywords : aerosol modelling; atmospheric physics and chemistry; marine aerosols; ADCHAM; aerosol; dimethyl sulfide; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to investigate the secondary aerosol formation from dimethylsulfide (DMS) using the aerosol dynamics, gas- and particle-phase chemistry kinetic multi-layer model, ADCHAM. The first simulations, concerning the butanol oxidation via hydroxyl radicals (OH), were performed to characterize the UV-light source of the AURA smog chamber (Aarhus university, Denmark), later used for the DMS experiments.

  4. 4. Energy Renovation Towards Net-Zero Energy Buildings using Photovoltaic Systems and Batteries in Residential Buildings

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Energi och ByggnadsDesign; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö

    Author : Albin Lithvall; Jovan Panić; [2020]
    Keywords : NZEB; Photovoltaics; Energy storage; Passive house; Energy efficiency; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : As the future energy goals of the building industry involve reducing the energy intensity in buildings as well as increasing the share of renewable energy sources, a suitable approach would be energy renovating existing buildings and further utilizing renewable energy production technology to reach Net-Zero Energy Building (NZEB) standard. This study is therefore investigating the economic feasibility of energy renovating buildings built during the Swedish Million program towards NZEB. READ MORE

  5. 5. Pine production comparison : production potential of Loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) and Slash pine (Pinus elliottii) in the southeastern USA in relation to initial density and forest management

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Resource Management

    Author : Åsa Ramberg; [2019]
    Keywords : Loblolly pine; Slash pine; Scots pine; management intensity; planting density;

    Abstract : The southeastern (SE) United States (US) produces more industrial timber than any other region in the world. Pine plantations in the southern US have increased from 1.8 million acres (728,400 ha) in the beginning of the 1950’s to 32 million acres (13 million ha) in the beginning of the 21st century, and cover 17 % of the forest land.
