  1. 1. Hydrological catchment analysis from characterisation of organic matter in stream water

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Hannes Berg Wiklund; [2020-02-05]
    Keywords : Organic matter; Time-of-flight mass spectrometry; aquatic chemistry; catchment hydrology;

    Abstract : Organic matter (OM) in aquatic systems is a complex field which have rapidly developed duringthe last decade due to the introduction of high resolution mass spectrometers. The compositionof OM in the aquatic environment is directly dependent on factors such as oxygen supply, pHand the flow rate in the local system. READ MORE

  2. 2. Water Insoluble Fraction of Nopal (Opuntia ficus) Cladodes Beneficially Affects Postprandial Appetite-related Variables, while the Soluble Fraction Has No Effect: A Randomized Crossover Study in Healthy Volunteers

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)

    Author : Phuong Dung Kieu; [2020]
    Keywords : Nopal cladodes; appetite variables; dietary fiber; hydrolysis index; obesity; applied nutrition; food chemistry; industriell näringslära; livsmedelskemi; Medicine and Health Sciences;

    Abstract : Introduction: The world has witnessed a global trend of increasing obesity, which is directly linked to non-communicable diseases, such as type 2 diabetes (T2D). The epidemic of obesity is largely associated with consumption of high calorie diets and low physical activity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Rening av avloppsvatten med hjälp av svamp : hantering av läkemedel och andra mikroföroreningar med hjälp av mykoremediering

    University essay from SLU/Department of Biosystems and Technology (from 130101)

    Author : Hannah Davidsson; [2020]
    Keywords : avloppsvatten; rening; mikroföroreningar; mykoremediering; svamp; reningsverk; lackas;

    Abstract : Dagens reningsverk kan inte hantera de flesta läkemedelsrester och andra mikroföroreningar som kommer till reningsverket vilket resulterar i att de återfinns i våra akvatiska miljöer. Därför pågår mycket forskning kring hur mikroföroreningar kan hanteras och avlägsnas innan de kommer till recipienten. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biological Soil Invertebrate Activity in a Tropical Rainforest : A comparison of soil invertebrate activity in two tropical rain forests in Borneo

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Hanna Berglund; [2020]
    Keywords : Soil Activity; Bait Lamina Stick;

    Abstract : Logging of tropical forests is increasing worldwide. Logging alters the forest conditions such as temperature, soil water content and litter input into the soil. This study explored how soil invertebrate activity in Borneo differs between pristine forests and two secondary forests, with 10 and 40 years of recovery time since the last logging. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ultrasonic Assisted Drying and its Effect on 3D Printability of Minced Beef and Other Foods

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)

    Author : Viktor Lindström; [2020]
    Keywords : Drying; Convection drying; Ultrasound; Ultrasonic drying; 3D-Printing; 3D-Printability; Food; Meat; Beef; Food technology; Livsmedelsteknologi; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The aim of this master thesis project was to investigate the impact on drying kinetics of ultrasound during air drying by a new ultrasonic transducer, on which a patent application has been filed by CSIRO. Convection drying using hot air is currently the conventional method of drying in the industry due to its simplicity and low cost. READ MORE
