  1. 1. Hg concentration in humus soils in different Arctic and Subarctic tundra vegetation types : Including a method comparison for analyzing metals in humus soils

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

    Author : Alice Sandvärn; [2022]
    Keywords : Hg concentration; vegetation types; Arctic tundra; elevation gradient; XRF;

    Abstract : Heavy metals, such as mercury (Hg), have a long residence time in the atmosphere and can be transported long distances and deposited in the Arctic via wet and dry deposition. Still, there are few studies on the complex mercury cycle and how different plant groups absorb Hg. READ MORE

  2. 2. X-Ray Fluorescence of Metal Halide Perovskites

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Synkrotronljusfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Samuel Narciso Silva; [2022]
    Keywords : Perovskite; X-ray; Fluorescence; Python; PyMCA; Synchrotron radiation; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : This thesis has the aim to provide a framework for analyzing X-ray fluorescence (XRF) data obtained from German Electron-Synchrotron Group (DESY). The theoretical analysis shows that XRF competes with Auger emission, and works mainly for elements with high atomic number. Here, incident X-rays of 13. READ MORE

  3. 3. Elemental variability in tree-rings as indicator for climate change : a case study on beech and oak trees at the Laacher See, Germany

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Author : Ann-Kathrin Wild; [2022]
    Keywords : trace elements; tree-rings; dendrochemistry; dendroclimatology; ITRAX; Laacher See; mofettes; tree-bark; Quercus sp.; Fagus sp.;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to contribute to the comprehension of the connection of element uptake in trees at the Laacher See in Germany and climatic parameters on different time scales. Understanding the relationship of certain elements in trees and temperature might enable the assignment of extraordinary high peaks in the elemental concentration, which cannot be explained by temperature, to another process as CO2 degassing of the mofettes, which are relics of the volcanic past of the lake.

  4. 4. Reconstruction of paleoclimate and loess provenance during the last glacial in Jersey using XRF analysis

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Matilda Persson; [2022]
    Keywords : loess; origin; La Motte; XRF; Quaternary; weathering; climate; lössjord; ursprung; La Motte; XRF; kvartär; vittring; klimat;

    Abstract : With our changing climate it becomes more vital to understand the processes that control climate change in order to better understand possible future shifts. By doing this, predictions can be made about future climates and better prepare us for them. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Geometallurgical Approach Towards the Correlation Between Rock Type Mineralogy and Grindability: A case study in Aitik mine, Sweden

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Raoul Schmitt; [2021]
    Keywords : Geometallurgy; autogenous grinding; process mineralogy; grindability test; abrasion breakage; automated mineralogy;

    Abstract : Aitik is a large copper porphyry type deposit located in northern Sweden, currently exploited at an annual rate of approximately 45Mt. The ore's exceptionally low head grade of 0.22 % Cu and varying degrees of hardness across the entire deposit pose challenges to the two fully autogenous grinding lines, each of which comprises a 22.
