Carbon Composition and Dynamics at the Marsh-Estuary Interface in a Temperate System

Recent studies have advanced our understanding of major terms in the carbon budget of the coastal ocean, including riverine inspect to estuaries, exchange between the major aquatic reservoirs, sediment burial, air-sea exchange, primary proud action and respiration. However, gaps remain in quantifying carbon fluxes and associated uncertainties at key interfaces in the coastal zone such as the marsh-estuary interface This …

Future Earth: Research for sustainability in the Anthropocene

The dramatic acceleration in the human enterprise and the impacts o the Earth system over the past century, with a synchronous acceleration of trends from the 1950s to the present day – over a single human lifetime – show little sign of abatement. This “Great Acceleration” contributed to the proposal that Earth is now in the Anthropocene. The global targets …

Why Does It Always Rain On Me – Properties of Alternative Durable Water Repellent Chemicals for Textiles

  Steffen Schellenberger will defend his licentiate thesis entitled “Why Does It Always Rain On Me – Properties of Alternative Durable Water Repellent Chemicals for Textiles.” Environmental pollution caused by long-chain perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) – organic chemicals with confirmed levels of toxicity, a propensity for bioaccumulation and extreme environmental persistence – has given rise to global environmental concerns. Functional textiles …
