  1. 1. Investigating the Fluxes of Radio-Cesium (137Cs) in Sweden : Investigating the Fluxes of Radio-Cesium (137Cs) in Sweden

    Magister-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Hammad Masood; [2022]
    Nyckelord :Chernobyl incident; Sweden; radio-cesium; contamination; terrestrial environment; quatic environment;

    Sammanfattning : Technological advancement and the quest for power have gradually contaminated our environment, as industrialization, agriculture, and nuclear activities progressed. In the year 1986, a terrible nuclear incident occurred in Ukraine, in which the nuclear reactor exploded. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Odensjön - A new varved lake sediment record from southern Sweden

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen

    Författare :Hanna Hertzman; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Varved lake sediment; late Holocene; organic sediments; diatoms; land-use history; southern Sweden; palaeolimnology; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Annually laminated (varved) sediments provide opportunities to reconstruct climate change and human impact on the environment with high temporal resolution. Depending on the character of the varves, such sediments can provide insight into the delivery of both autochthonous and allochthonous material from the lake and its catch- ment and answer questions regarding both regional and local responses to climate- and land-use changes.

  3. 3. Dating lake bottom sediment by searching for 210Pb using gamma-ray spectroscopy

    Kandidat-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad kärnfysik

    Författare :William Bäckström; [2020]
    Nyckelord :sediment dating; dating; spectroscopy; gamma-ray; nuclear; lead; HPGe detector; sedimentation; sedimentation rate; attenuation; migration; limnologist; least squares;

    Sammanfattning : In a collaboration with limnologists at Uppsala University a planar HPGe detector has been used to find 210Pb in lake bottom sediment in hopes of getting an estimation for the sedimentation rate. Using a least squares fit to the data, the sedimentation rate was calculated to 0.08 ± 0. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Compilation and evaluation of validations of computer codes for spent nuclear fuel – a review

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Kärnfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Författare :Staffan Fors; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Nuclear fuel; Kärnbränsle; Slutförvar; Fissionsprodukter; Physics and Astronomy;

    Sammanfattning : This report describes a systematic review regarding validations of calculations by measurements of isotopic compositions, or decay heat, on spent nuclear fuel, SNF. 15 relevant or otherwise interesting studies, were found. Two reports were chosen among the found studies and analyzed. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Records of environmental change and sedimentation processes over the last century in a Baltic coastal inlet

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen

    Författare :Hanna Nilsson; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Baltic Sea; eutrophication; coastal areas; archipelago; laminated sediments; nutrient inputs; carbon and nitrogen content; biogenic silica; sedimentation; environmental impact; marine geology; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The marine ecosystem in the Baltic Sea is affected by multiple stress factors, e.g. eutrophication and deoxygenation, overfishing and anthropogenic pollution. Here we evaluate the short-term trends of dissolved oxygen in bottom waters and changes in the primary productivity within a coastal inlet in the Baltic Sea. LÄS MER
