  1. 1. The Eemian Baltic Sea hydrography and paleoenvironment based on foraminiferal geochemistry

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen

    Author : Julia Chonewicz; [2020]
    Keywords : trace elements; benthic foraminifera; last interglacial; temperature reconstruction; geochemistry; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : I den här masteruppsatsen undersöktes geokemin i kalkskalen av bottenlevande foraminiferer från Anholt (Kattegat), Ristinge (Bälthavet) och Obrzynowo (Egentliga Östersjön), för att rekonstruera de hydrografiska förhållanden i Östersjön och paleomiljön under den senaste interglacialen (130 - 115 ka BP). De variabler som analyserades innefattade Mg/Ca, Ba/Ca och Mn/Ca samt stabila syre- och kolisotoper (δ18O och δ13C) i kombination med data från tidigare studier och modern hydrografi. READ MORE

  2. 2. An annual evaluation of CH4 oxidation in a freshwater lake

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Tema Miljöförändring

    Author : Eldina Cehic; [2020]
    Keywords : Methane oxidation; isotopic fractionation; stratification; open steady-state and closed system.; Metanoxidation; isotopfraktionering; stratifiering; öppet stabilt system och stängt system;

    Abstract : Freshwater lakes constrain its methane (CH4) emissions through CH4 oxidation. CH4 includes three carbon (C) isotopes; the stable isotopes 12C,13C and the unstable and more uncommon isotope 14C. Methanotrophs (i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Spatial and temporal variations in stable isotope signatures (δ13C and δ15N) of the gammarids and the common carp in the southern coast of the Caspian Sea

    University essay from SLU/Dept. Of Aquatic Resources

    Author : Nazila Hajizadeh Koupayeh; [2020]
    Keywords : carbon stable isotope; Caspian sea; Cyprinus carpio; food webs; Gammarus aequicauda; nitrogen stable isotope; Pontogammarus maeoticus;

    Abstract : Despite the growing body of research on the use of stable isotope analysis in food web studies, spatial and temporal variations in stable isotope ratios of coastal communities are still poorly understood. The aim of my study is to explore how carbon and nitrogen stable isotopes of selected benthic communities vary spatially and temporally across the south of Caspian Sea. READ MORE

  4. 4. Effects of 100 years of drainage on peat properties in a drained peatland forests in northern Sweden

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Ecology and Management

    Author : Mikaela Casselgård; [2020]
    Keywords : ash content; biodiversity; bulk density; carbon; climate; compaction; ditch; drainage; greenhouse gas emissions; groundwater level; isotopes; nitrogen; peatland; restoration;

    Abstract : Natural peatlands provide a small but persistent long-term carbon (C) sink. However, within the last century their extent in Sweden has declined by about 1.5-2.0 million hectares due to drainage activities. READ MORE

  5. 5. Assessing the biodiversity crisis within the Triassic-Jurassic boundary interval using redox sensitive trace metals and stable carbon isotope geochemistry

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen

    Author : Halla Margrét Viðarsdóttir; [2020]
    Keywords : Stenlille; Schandelah; redox conditions; C-isotopes; marine sediments; trace elements; enrichment factors; mass extinction; Triassic – Jurassic boundary; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Around the Triassic-Jurassic-Boundary time interval, a severe mass extinction event occurred, which has been associated to volcanism of the Central Atlantic Magmatic Province (CAMP). Significant amounts of greenhouse gases as carbon dioxide (CO2) or methane (CH4) and other volatiles are suggested to have been released into the atmosphere, leading to global warming with subsequent impact on the biosphere.
