  2. 2. Greenhoue gas flux over a 50-year post permafrost thaw gradient. Decomposition of soil organic carbon from the Swedish tussock tundra.

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Johan Martinelli; [2020-02-11]
    Keywords : greenhouse gas; permafrost;

    Abstract : As the globe is warming the extent of permafrost drastically decreases in the high latitudes. Upon thawthe stored soil organic carbon (SOC) undergoes rapid decomposition and is partly released as trace gasesto the atmosphere. READ MORE

  3. 3. A Lead (Pb) Mass-Balance Budget for a Dry Periglacial Catchment in West Greenland : Discussing the fate of pollutant Pb

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Andreas Nylund; [2020]
    Keywords : Lead mass-balance budget; Dry periglacial landscape; Whole catchment; Pollution; Climate change;

    Abstract : Lead (Pb), occurs both naturally and as a pollutant in Arctic landscape systems. The ongoing climate change, especially pronounced in the Arctic, changes the premises for Pb transport and mobility. READ MORE
