  1. 1. Early season BVOC emission for young potted Norway spruce (Picea abies)

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Erica Jaakkola; [2019]
    Keywords : Physical Geography and Ecosystem analysis; BVOC; Norway spruce; PTR-TOFMS; photosynthesis; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOC) are emitted naturally from the biosphere to the atmosphere and are a part of the global carbon emissions. BVOCs are contributing to around 5-10% of the total net carbon exchange to the atmosphere. READ MORE

  2. 2. Characterizing particulate carbon using dielectric property measurements

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Madeleine Syk; Joakim Vollmer; [2018]
    Keywords : black carbon; elemental carbon; carbonaceous aerosols; soot; fullerene C60; multiwalled carbon nanotubes; mesoporous carbon; impedance; dielectric; snow melting; capacitance; waveguide;

    Abstract : Interest in effects of carbonaceous particles in the atmosphere has recently taken an upswing due to knowledge of how these particles affect our environment. Carbonaceous aerosols are characterized by their dark color, giving them the ability to absorb both incoming and outgoing radiation of all wavelengths in the atmosphere. READ MORE

  4. 4. Use of Satellite Data for Prediction of Weather Impact on EO-Systems

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologi

    Author : Cecilia Gullström; [2018]
    Keywords : EO-systems; Aerosols; Extinction coefficient; Satellite data; CALIPSO; EO-system; Aerosoler; Extinktionskoefficient; Satellitdata; CALIPSO;

    Abstract : To predict the performance of an electro-optical sensor system (EO-system) requires taking the weather situation into consideration. The possibility to use weather data from satellites instead of ground – and flight stations has been investigated. READ MORE

  5. 5. Analysis and comparison of weather models for solar irradiance forecasts in Sweden

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

    Author : Linus Falk; [2018]
    Keywords : meteorology; weather models; ensemble forecasts; solar irradiance; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Solar radiation is affected in a variety of different ways through the atmosphere and on its way down to the Earth’s surface. Clouds are the main factor in this attenuation of solar radiation, but aerosols, ozone and other different gases have a significant impact too. Understanding these processes is fundamental to solar forecasting. READ MORE
