Sammanfattning : Ultra-short-chain perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) is a group of highly fluorinated and very stable chemicals. Their small molecular structure in combination with the acidic functional group result in highly polar compounds and concern has been raised as these substances may threaten our drinking water supplies.

2. Chemical characteristics of atmospheric aerosols : the influence of natural and man-made sources and sinks
Sammanfattning : In order to improve the understanding of the climatic and environmental effects of atmospheric aerosol particles, knowledge about their sources, sinks, chemical and physical characteristics as well as transportation in the atmosphere is needed. This thesis examines the water-soluble chemical characteristics of aerosol particles and precipitation and their interaction with trace gases. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The African Sahel is one of the most vulnerable regions to climate variability at different time scales. It is an arid to semi-arid region with limited water resources. The summer rainfall is one of these sources, but it exhibits pronounced interannual variability. This thesis presents several aspects of Sahelian Sudan rainfall. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) are man-made chemicals which have been observed in the global environment, even in locations far away from where they are emitted. These persistent substances are taken up in humans and biota and may have toxic effects. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Wind turbines have grown both in size and number in the past decades. The taller turbines has made it possible to place them in forest areas which is fortunate for a country like Sweden with lots of forest. An issue with wind turbines is the sound they produce. The sound mainly comes from the rotor blades when they pass through the air. LÄS MER
