This is a review of the adverse health effects of ambient air pollution in relation to residential wood combustion in modern society. From a literature search of PubMed, nine relevant studies were identified. All of them focused on the effects of short-term exposure such as asthma, respiratory symptoms, daily mortality, and lung function. Substantial(More)
The inhibition kinetics for some organophosphates (paroxon, diisopropylfluorophosphate, sarin, VX, soman and soman isomers) and carbamates (physostigmine, neostigmine, pyridostigmine and carbaryl) in the reaction with acetylcholinesterase from electric eel have been studied. Dissociation constants and rate constants for the irreversible step were(More)
Concentrations of eleven metals (Al, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, V and Zn) were determined in the brown seaweed Fucus vesiculosus collected from the Archipelago of Stockholm. Several factors which influence the metal content in the seaweed have been studied, including errors caused by epiphytes, sea exposure and differences depending on which part of(More)
Concentrations of Cd and ten other metals (Al, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, V and Zn) were determined in the brown seaweed Fucus vesiculosus L. and the aquatic moss, Fontinalis dalecarlica Br. Eur. from the northern Baltic Sea and the southern Bothnian Sea. Elevated concentrations of metals were found in samples taken close to densely populated areas, such(More)
In this paper, we describe an improved method for visualization of thermographic data in the paper and pulp process industry. We present an application that allows process operators to freely choose how absolute temperatures and time varying changes of thermographic scans should be mapped to colors and/or 3D shapes. Of the possible combinations, we selected(More)
