  1. 1. Organic Phosphorus Compounds in Aquatic Sediments : Towards Molecular Identification with Mass Spectrometry

    Författare :Heidi De Brabandere; Monica Waldebäck; Emil Rydin; Per J. R. Sjöberg; Rolf Danielsson; William T. Cooper; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; electrospray ionisation; mass spectrometry; liquid chromatography; organic phosphorus; aquatic sediment; eutrophication; sample preparation; extraction; Analytical chemistry; Analytisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : Phosphorus (P) regulates trophic status in most aquatic systems. However, only bioavailable P contributes to primary production. In most lakes and shallow seas, mineralisation of sediment P into its bioavailable form and its release to the water column is important for maintaining primary production. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Organic Phosphorus Compounds in Aquatic Sediments : Analysis, Abundance and Effects

    Författare :Joakim Ahlgren; Emil Rydin; Monica Waldebäck; Lars Tranvik; Karin Markides; Sven Blomqvist; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Environmental chemistry; Organic phosphorus; aquatic sediment; eutrophication; NMR; internal loading; sample preparation; extraction; degradation; Miljökemi; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi;

    Sammanfattning : Phosphorus (P) is often the limiting nutrient in lacustrine and brackish eco-systems, and enhanced input of P into an aquatic system might therefore negatively impact the environment. Because modern waste water manage-ment have reduced external P input to surface waters, internal P loading from the sediment has become one of the main P sources to aquatic ecosys-tems, in which relatively unknown organic P compounds seem to be more active in P recycling than previously thought.

  3. 3. Adsorption of dissolved organic matter in aquatic ecosystems : Effects on composition and reactivity

    Författare :Marloes M. Groeneveld; Lars Tranvik; Dolly Kothawala; Suzanne Tank; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :dissolved organic matter; DOM; carbon; aquatic; adsorption; mineral particles; Biology with specialization in Limnology; Biologi med inriktning mot limnologi;

    Sammanfattning : Inland waters receive organic matter from terrestrial ecosystems and in situ production. In transit from land to the ocean, dissolved organic carbon (DOC) may be mineralised to inorganic forms (CO2 and CH4) by microbial degradation and photodegradation. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Partitioning and persistence of volatile methylsiloxanes in aquatic environments

    Författare :Dimitrios Panagopoulos; Matthew MacLeod; Annika Jahnke; Amelie Kierkegaard; Whelan Mick; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; siloxanes; organic carbon; sediment; partitioning; persistence; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : The presence of volatile methylsiloxanes (VMS) in the environment has raised concerns among environmental chemists and regulators about their persistence and the risks they may pose to the environment. This thesis explores the partitioning and persistence of VMS in aquatic environments. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Ecology and evolution of coastal Baltic Sea 'dead zone' sediments

    Författare :Elias Broman; Mark Dopson; Nils Risgaard-Petersen; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Baltic Sea; sediment; oxygen; metatranscriptomics; metagenomics; 16S rRNA gene; RNA-seq; dead zone; re-oxygenation; Akvatisk ekologi; Aquatic Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : Since industrialization and the release of agricultural fertilizers began, coastal and open waters of the Baltic Sea have been loaded with nutrients. This has increased the growth of algal blooms and because a portion of the algal organic matter sinks to the sea floor, hypoxia has increased. LÄS MER
