  1. 1. The evaluation of preparation techniques for the measurements of hydrogen isotope ratios in ecology

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Kusal Weragama; [2021]
    Keywords : Deuterium; liquid water equilibration; steam equilibration; exchangeable H fraction; non-exchangeable H; Equilibrium fractionation factor; Isotopic soil fraction;

    Abstract : The stable isotope ratio of non-exchangeable hydrogen (δ2Hn) emerged as a promising new tool for source attribution in aquatic ecology, which can better discriminate between the organic matter sources. However, determining the absolute isotopic values is problematic due to the functional groups with hydrogen (H) that can easily exchange with the ambient water. 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. Påverkar klimatförändringen trofisk fraktionering av C och N mellan växt och konsument i sötvattenekosystem?

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Aquatic Sciences and Assessment

    Author : Evelina Hiltunen; [2018]
    Keywords : chironomus riparius; stable isotopes; trophic fractionation; climate change; oligotrophication;

    Abstract : Temperaturhöjningen som en följd av klimatförändringen väntas gå fortast och bli störst på Nord- och Sydpolen. När lufttemperaturen stiger, stiger även vattentemperaturer och vegetationsgränser flyttas. Detta skulle kunna vara orsaken till den näringsutarmning som kan ses i många arktiska sjöar. READ MORE

  4. 4. Contributions of Event Water to Streamflow in an Agricultural Catchment

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Johannes Hagby; [2018]
    Keywords : Isotopic hydrograph separation; tracer; event water; pre-event water; sequential rainfall collector; Hydrograf separation; spårämne; eventvatten; pre-event vatten; sekventiell regnuppfångare;

    Abstract : In agricultural catchments, hydrological processes play an important role in the export of nutrients. Water that enters a catchment during a rain event (event water) can have different flow paths and residence times. READ MORE

  5. 5. Peloponnesian Stalagmites and Soda Straw Stalactites as Climate Archives : Stable Isotopes in New Speleothem Material from Kapsia Cave, Peloponnese, Greece

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Author : Linn Haking; [2017]
    Keywords : Stable Isotopes; Stalagmite; Soda Straw Stalactites; Climate Archive; Climate Variability; The Amount Effect; Isotopic Fractionation; Kapsia Cave; Peloponnese; Greece; Mediterranean;

    Abstract : This study presents results from stable isotope analyses of a modern stalagmite and three soda straw stalactites from Kapsia Cave, the Peloponnese, Greece. The resulting values from the stalagmite are put into context of local meteorological data, as well as previous research from Kapsia Cave. READ MORE
