  1. 1. Analysis of the impact of anthropogenic pollution on shallow groundwater in peri-urban Kampala

    Författare :Robinah Kulabako; Roger Thunvik; Mai Nalubega; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Shallow groundwater; Sanitation; Peri-urban; Vadose zone; Anthropogenic; Modelling; Environmental engineering; Miljöteknik;

    Sammanfattning : An investigation to assess the anthropogenic pollutant loads, transport and impact on shallow groundwater in one of Kampala’s peri-urban areas (Bwaise III Parish) was undertaken. Bwaise III is a densely populated informal settlement with a high water table (... LÄS MER

  2. 2. Air Pollution Dependency on Climate Variability and Source Region : Past, Current and Future Air Pollution Scenarios over Europe

    Författare :Camilla Andersson; Hans-Christen Hansson; Christer Johansson; Joakim Langner; David Simpson; Peter Builtjes; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Acidification; Air Pollution; Climate Change; Europe; Numerical Model; Emission; Eutrophication; Key region; Nitrogen Dioxide; Particulate Matter; PM; Source region; Surface Ozone; Tropospheric Ozone; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : The main objectives of this thesis were to investigate the dependency of European air pollution on climate variability and emission source region. Calculations with a chemistry transport model (CTM) were conducted to investigate the influence of climate variability. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Genetic Aspects of Environmental Disturbances in Marine Ecosystems : Studies of the Blue Mussel in the Baltic Sea

    Författare :Josefine Larsson; Mats Grahn; Inger Porsch-Hällström; Katarzyna Smolarz; Andrew Whitehead; Södertörns högskola; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Blue mussel; Baltic Sea; anthropogenic disturbance; pollution; sewage effluents; harbors; genetics; genomics; Environmental Studies; Miljövetenskapliga studier; Östersjö- och Östeuropaforskning; Baltic and East European studies;

    Sammanfattning : Anthropogenic environmental changes can serve as drivers for evolutionary responses in wild populations. To predict the long-term impact of anthropogenic changes on populations, it is crucial to understand the genetic effects caused by these disturbances. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Genetic response to pollution in sticklebacks; natural selection in the wild

    Författare :Emma Lind; Mats Grahn; Marjorie Oleksiak; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Population genomics; genome scan; divergent selection; Gasterosteus aculeatus; Baltic Sea; pollution; Functional Zoomorphology; funktionell zoomorfologi;

    Sammanfattning : The last century, humans have been altering almost all natural environments at an accelerating rate, including the Baltic Sea that has highly eutrophicated areas and many coastal industries such as Pulp-mills. For animals living in a habitat that changes there are basically two alternatives, either to cope with the change or become locally extinct. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Source-Receptor Modeling of Air Pollution : Assessment of Source Contributions: Source Characterization and Chemometric Applications

    Författare :Emma Hedberg Larsson; Christer Johansson; H.-C. Hansson; Ralf Torgrip; Paulo Artaxo; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Particles; Source-receptor modeling; PMF; Elemental source profiles; Levoglucosan; Wood combustion; Air pollution; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Particles released to the atmosphere from anthropogenic sources affect the Earth’s climate as well as the health of the population. Anthropogenic sources of atmospheric particles are e.g. the combustion of biomass and fossil fuels, road, brake and tire wear and various industrial activities. LÄS MER
