sScience Tools for Investigating Climate Change (eSTICC) in Northern High Latitudes – Third Yearly Meeting and General Assembly

eSTICC is a Nordic Centre of Excellence (NCoE) funded by NordForsk. eSTICC stands for “eScience Tools for Investigating Climate Change at High Northern Latitudes” and aims for a more accurate description of the high-latitude feedback processes in the climate system by improving the eScience tools for the climate research community. eSTICC has pooled together researchers from 13 top institutes in the Nordic countries working …

Contemporary methodologies for analysis and characterization of lipids

The seminar, which is organised in conjunction with ACES, Stockholm University, will cover methodologies of selected areas important and useful for lipid analysis and characterization. The aim is to review each area with examples and applications for industrial and quality control work, as well as for research purposes. Selected areas:  • Shotgun lipidomics Direct infusion of lipid extracts or samples …

Aquatic biogeochemical cycling of redox-sensitive elements

Biogeochemical cycling at redox interfaces contributes to regulating ecology, biological productivity and environmental quality in the aquatic environment. Such dynamic systems are best studied using a range of tools including field measurements, laboratory experiments and mathematical modelling. I use such approaches to unravel the biogeochemical transformations of key elements at redox-interfaces throughout watersheds. In this presentation three case studies will feature …

Climate policy pathways after Paris: Implications for the reviews of the temperature goal and the Nationally Determined Contributions

This seminar will address potential policy pathways after the Paris agreement, specifically addressing policy implications of the temperature goals and the process of scaling up the Nationally Determined Contributions. The new climate agreement, adopted by 195 countries in Paris in December 2015, crowned an orchestration focused climate policy architecture. UN climate policy now focuses on incentivizing action and coordinating information on …

A boating life without toxic antifouling paints – is that possible?

Information in English: Researchers from ACES, together with their collaborators from Gothenburg, Finland and Germany will present the latest results from the project CHANGE during the boat fair in Stockholm (‘Allt för Sjön’). Environmental issues related to antifouling paints, as well as the potential of alternative methods will be presented to a broad audience consisting of boat owners, policy makers …

Non-target screening and chemometrics

Non-taget screening is to record as much data as possible for a complex sample and let patterns and correlations within the data inform you about which the interesting compounds are. Current developments in analytical instrumentation such as UHPLC couple to high-resolution full scan mass spectrometry enables non-target screening. The driver for this trend is a wish to maximize the likelihood …

Hydrological and biogeochemical controls on watershed dissolved organic matter transport: Pulse-shunt concept

Inland waters are part of a global circulatory system, delivering terrestrial elements and water to the ocean.  As early as the 15th century, da Vinci noted that this delivery system has components that are predictable and provide an opportunity for scaling.  Precipitation and discharge events have frequency and distribution curves.  Drainage networks have self-similar properties that can be simplified using …
