    Author : Linnéa Johansson; [2020-07-08]
    Keywords : mercury; methylmercury; demethylation; pH; dissolved oxygen and total organic content;

    Abstract : In Skogaryd research site, water samples were taken and analysed for total mercury (Hgtot) andmethylmercury (MeHg) concentration along with the pH, dissolved oxygen (DO) and total organiccontent (TOC). This to give the condition of the site before the forest is clear-cute and a part of theland rewetted to a wetland. READ MORE

  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

    Author : David Nimblad Svensson; [2020]
    Keywords : X-ray CT; soil structure; biopores; connectivity;

    Abstract : Soil porosity, pore size distribution and pore characteristics such as connectivity are important for a range of soil processes including ease of root growth and air and water transport. The pore structure is therefore an important part of soil fertility. READ MORE
