The uptake of iron cyanide into willows was studied. Trees were grown in solutions with Prussian blue, ferricyanide, or ferrocyanide. Iron cyanide speciation in solution was determined by HPLC during the experiment. Total cyanide and total iron in solution and trees were measured at the end of the experiments. Ferrocyanide wasthe dominating species in most(More)
Chemicals taken up into plants may be accumulated so leading to toxic effects. Uptake and phytotoxicity of free cyanide was determined with the willow-tree transpiration test. Willow sets were grown in sand and irrigated with varying levels of cyanide (CN). Toxicity was determined by measuring transpiration. At CN concentrations below 10 mg/L, no toxic(More)
The potential of using tree core samples to detect and monitor natural attenuation of perchloroethene (PCE) in groundwater was investigated at a PCE-contaminated site. In the area of the known plume with PCE concentrations between 0.004 and > 40 mg/L, cores were collected from tree trunks at a height of about 1 m above ground surface. Tree sampling of the(More)
The ability to simulate regional precipitation realistically by climate models is essential to understand and adapt to climate change. Due to the complexity of associated processes, particularly at unresolved temporal and spatial scales this continues to be a major challenge. As a result, climate simulations of precipitation often exhibit substantial biases(More)
Fractional rate of degradation (kd) of fermentable nutrients in the rumen is an important parameter in modern feed evaluation systems based on mechanistic models. Estimates of kd for starch was obtained on 19 starch sources originating from barley, wheat, oat, maize and peas and treated in different ways both chemically and physically. The starch sources(More)
This study is a part of an on-going Danish research project HYACINTS. A key outcome of the project is a fully coupled model setup using the HIRHAM regional climate model and the MIKE SHE hydrological model with the intent of improving hydrological predictions. We here present results from the initial studies prior to the coupling performed to aid in the(More)
