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.

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 …

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 …
