About the Environmental Science Colloquium Series (ECo-Series)

The ECo-Series provides a forum for discussing scientific issues of societal relevance, sharing new and innovative techniques, and for interacting with other scientists, stakeholders and policy makers. Our aim is to provide entertaining, educational, and provocative events which foster discussion and creativity both within and outside of the Department.

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 …

Biogenic Organic Emissions in a changing world

Plants and other organisms produce an abundant and diverse array of metabolites including many volatile organic compounds that are released into the atmosphere. These compounds participate in numerous chemical reactions that influence the atmospheric abundance of important air pollutants and short-lived climate forcers including organic aerosol, ozone and methane. The production and release of these organics are strongly influenced by …

Modelling the risks of climate change

Climate change has been called the greatest market failure the world has ever seen. How do we know this? What should we do about it? And what effect might recent developments in the Arctic have on the global bill for climate change?

Platinum group elements in the environment: contaminants of emerging concern

Platinum group elements are used in an increasing number of applications, and emissions are causing an increase in the environmental concentrations of these normally rare metals. Their distribution, physic-chemical forms, bioavailability and toxic effects will be discussed. To access the meeting room on the web go to: https://connect.sunet.se/contaminantscience

Changing Landscapes: Interactions between Vegetation and Atmospheric Chemistry

Tropospheric gases and particles impact the Earth’s climate, are deleterious to human health, degrade visibility, and affect ecosystem productivity. These compounds can be emitted from a range of natural and anthropogenic sources, chemically transform in the atmosphere, and can be transported over large distances before depositing. Research in atmospheric chemistry investigates these coupled processes from local to global scales. In …
