[ID: 152] Krycklan Catchment Study Infrastructure

PI: Hjalmar Laudon

A field infrastructure for research on hydrology, biogeochemistry and ecology of surface waters


[ID: 146] Land Atmosphere Exchange of Mercury using Relaxed Eddy Accumulation

PI: Kevin Bishop

Measuring land atmosphere exchange of Mercury using Relaxed Eddy Accumulation above the forest


[ID: 143] Sino-Swedish Mercury Management Research Framework (SMaReF)

PI: Kevin Bishop

The UNEP Global Mercury Partnership seeks to reduce Hg emission and use. But this will neither roll back the toxic legacy of past Hg emissions nor end the increasing exposure of millions of people to harmful levels of this potent neurotoxin. Land use in Sweden (forestry) and China (rice cultivation) has a decisive influence on the transformations and mobilization of Hg that exposes people to Hg, even though these two livelihoods did not put Hg in the environment. SMaReF in Degerö/Svartberget is a flagship site for the comparioson of Hg cycling in Sweden and China. Degerö is a wetland for comparison to Chinese Rice fields.

[ID: 51] Protecting water quality hotspots along streams

PI: Stefan Ploum

This project aims to characterize the hydrological and biogeochemical dynamics of riparian contributions to boreal streams. We use thermal and chemical tracing to capture these dynamics, in particular during high flow events.
