  1. 1. Biogeochemistry and Peat Properties of Restored Peatlands

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

    Author : Pelle Belaieff Kronborg; [2022]
    Keywords : Drainage; Bulk density; Nitrogen; Carbon; Stable isotopes;

    Abstract : Globally, peatlands comprise the most important soil organic carbon pool storing approximately one third of all terrestrial soil carbon. Drainage can turn peatlands to net sources of carbon dioxide. Peatlands have historically been drained to increase the productivity of agriculture and forestry. READ MORE

  2. 2. Aquaculture and its effect on the wild fish resource in a Swedish lake : An evaluation of changes in fat content, protein content and trophic niche

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies

    Author : Emmy Nyberg; [2022]
    Keywords : Aquaculture; wild fish; fat content; protein content; stable isotopes;

    Abstract : Fish is nutritious and important as a food source for many people. It contains high levels of protein, important omega-3 fatty acids as well as micronutrients. For a sustainable fish consumption, aquaculture is needed but it can affect nearby ecosystems in many ways. READ MORE

  3. 3. Arctica Islandica – Annually Banded Mollusc Offers High Temporal Resolution Record Into End Of North Sea Little Ice Age

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Eilidh Towers; [2022]
    Keywords : sclerochronology; Arctica islandica; palaeoenvironments; Little Ice Age; radiocarbon reservoir effect;

    Abstract : Sclerochronology affirms the well-established fact that banded growth increments in marine molluscs accurately record oscillations in climate and environment for the past millennia or more. This study considers how such records can enhance understanding of environmental shifts across the 18th to 20th centuries. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. 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
