  1. 1. Anthropogenic influence on climate through changes in aerosol emissions from air pollution and land use change

    Författare :Juan Camilo Acosta Navarro; Ilona Riipinen; Annica M.L. Ekman; Hans-Christen Hansson; Risto Makkonen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Climate change; Air quality; Land use; General circulation; Atmosphere-Ocean interactions; Aerosol climate effects; Earth system modelling; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Particulate matter suspended in air (i.e. aerosol particles) exerts a substantial influence on the climate of our planet and is responsible for causing severe public health problems in many regions across the globe. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Investigating parameters governing liquid-phase cloud activation of atmospheric particles

    Författare :Maryam Dalirian; Ilona Riipinen; Ottmar Möhler; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; CCN activation; surface tension; coated aerosols; black carbon; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Aerosol-cloud interactions are one of the main sources of uncertainties in modeling and predicting the Earth’s climate. To overcome this uncertainty, we need to improve the understanding about the processes and parameters defining how aerosol particles turn into cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) or ice nuclei (IN) to produce cloud droplets or ice crystals.

  3. 3. Insights into key processes governing atmospheric aerosol loadings and their interactions with clouds

    Författare :Emelie Linnéa Graham; Ilona Riipinen; Claudia Mohr; Paul Zieger; Annica M. L. Ekman; Marianne Glasius; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Aerosol particles are ubiquitous in the atmosphere and an essential part of the atmospheric radiation balance regulating the Earth’s temperature. Aerosol-cloud interaction still remains the largest single uncertainty in future climate projections. In addition, aerosols are also responsible for air pollution, causing severe health effects.

  4. 4. Quantification of population exposure and health impacts associated with air pollution

    Författare :David Segersson; Christer Johansson; Lars Gidhagen; Ranjeet S. Sokhi; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; air pollution; health impact assessment; dispersion modelling; population exposure; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : There is substantial evidence that air pollution, in particular particulate matter (PM), affects our health. The overall objective of this thesis is to understand and quantify population exposure to ambient air pollution and related health impacts. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Toxicity of Inorganic Aluminium in Humic Streams

    Författare :Cecilia M. Andrén; Emil Rydin; Hans Borg; Ann-Kristin Eriksson Wiklund; Björn-Olav Rosseland; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Inorganic Al; toxicity; acidification; humic streams; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Aluminium (Al) has been recognised as a main toxic factor alongside pH in acidified water ecosystems. The toxic effect of Al has been attributed to inorganic Al (Ali), though there are few in situ studies in ambient humic waters which are the focus of this thesis. LÄS MER
