  1. 1. Marine Geology and Holocene Paleoceanographyof the Southern Quark, Baltic Sea

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för geologiska vetenskaper

    Author : Anton Wagner; [2022]
    Keywords : Bottom currents; Sortable silt; Radiocarbon dating; Baltic Sea stages; Estuarine circulation; Marine sediment cores; Marine geophysical mapping;

    Abstract : The Understen-Märket trench is located in the Southern Quark and is the only deep-water connection between the Baltic Propper and the Gulf of Bothnia. Bathymetric mapping reveals a number of eroded channels and drift deposits exists on the seafloor, indicating that the area is heavily affected by current activity. READ MORE

  2. 2. The land carbon sink of Lithuanian forests in the light of climate change: A model approach

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Patricija Marijauskaite; [2022]
    Keywords : Geography; Physical geography; Ecosystem analysis; Ecosystem modelling; LPJ-GUESS; Climate change; Forest sequestration; Land carbon sink; Norway spruce; Scot s pine; Silver birch; monoculture; silviculture; NPP; NBP; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Forests form the backbone of the European terrestrial carbon sink (State Forest Service & Ministry of Environment, 2018). As the European Union (EU) strives to become climate neutral by 2050, forests are accounted for the natural carbon absorption mechanism (European Commission, n.d.). READ MORE

  3. 3. Turbulence Intensity During Low-Level Jets in the Baltic Sea

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten- och landskapslära

    Author : Thomasson August; [2021]
    Keywords : Low-Level Jet; Turbulence intensity; Shear sheltering; LiDAR; Baltic Sea; Low-Level Jet; Turbulensintesitet; Shear sheltering; LiDAR; Östersjön;

    Abstract : Low-level jets (LLJs) are local wind speed maximums in the atmospheric boundary layer. In the Baltic Sea, LLJs are frequently occurring in spring and summer. It is an important phenomena to consider for wind energy parks, and changes in turbulence during the jets can effect the efficiency of said parks. READ MORE

  4. 4. Microplastics in the Gulf of Bothnia, SwedenA comparison between Österfjärden and Örefjärden.

    University essay from Örebro universitet/Institutionen för naturvetenskap och teknik

    Author : Emma Overgaard; [2021]
    Keywords : IR; Microplastic; pollution; polymer composition; surface water; visual characterization;

    Abstract : Microplastics are emerging pollutants in the marine environment, including a range of polymers modified by varying quantities of additives and sorbed pollutants, differing in size, colour, and shape. This study focuses on characterization and quantification through visual characterization of microplastics >300 μm in surface water and at 5-meter depth in the Gulf of Bothnia. READ MORE

  5. 5. Death's reflection in the water : Mortuary ritual, ancestral worship and the cosmological significance of water on the island of Gotland during the Pitted Ware culture

    Abstract : The Pitted Ware culture on Gotland presents a multitude of material that allow archeologists to re-construct and visit the socio-economic structure of a middle-neolithic settlement in the Baltic sea. I will be analyzing the archaeological material in accordance to the ocean, and to what we can interpret as ritual and cosmological variables at the site through ritual theory, and with a method of comparative analogy and research.
