    Abstract : One of the worst wildfires in Portugal in 2017 on June17- 21 started at the central part of Pedrógão Grande and spread fast to the surrounding areas Góis, Pampilhosa da Serra and Arganil. The wildfire took 64 lives and a large smoke plume was observed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Potential Carbon Storage and Albedo Change due to Reforestation of Pasture in Scania.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Miljövetenskaplig utbildning

    Author : Elin Backström; [2019]
    Keywords : Reforestation; Carbon storage; Albedo; Radiative forcing; Scania; Climate mitigation; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Using reforestation for climate change mitigation is complex due to the multiple impacts forest has on climate. This study analyses the effectiveness in using reforestation on pasture in Scania (south Sweden) as a tool for climate mitigation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Carbonaceous aerosols and trace metal deposition in high-latitude snow : a comparative study in Sweden and Alaska

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Soil and Environment

    Author : Anika Pinzner; [2019]
    Keywords : PM; carbon particles; pXRF; arctic; subarctic; EC OC; LAHM; PSAP; TOT; ICP-MS; filter; contamination; albedo;

    Abstract : This study investigates the advantages and disadvantages of several destructive and non-destructive analytical methods that can be employed to characterize airborne par-ticulate matter (PM) deposited in seasonal snow. To this end, a comparative study was conducted on PM obtained from snowpack surveys in two Arctic/subarctic regions of Northern Sweden and Interior Alaska, USA. READ MORE

  4. 4. Estimation of the potential BVOC emissions by the different tree species in Malmö

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Larissa Lisa Gesa Scholz; [2019]
    Keywords : BVOC emissions; isoprene; monoterpene; air quality; Malmö; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : BVOC emissions from trees contribute to ozone and secondary aerosol formation and therefore have an impact on air quality. The two most abundant BVOCs emitted from trees are isoprene and monoterpenes. READ MORE

  5. 5. 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
