Measurements by school pupils paved way for key research findings

Measurements by school pupils paved way for key research findings
With their measurements and samples, nearly 3,500 schoolchildren have assisted a research study on lakes and global warming. The results show that water temperatures generally remain low despite the air becoming warmer. This helps to curb the outflow of greenhouse gases (GHGs). How often is water warmer than air? Gesa Weyhenmeyer, Professor of Aquatic Biogeochemistry at Uppsala University, asked herself this question when she analysed thousands of measurements.

Renewable energy could power the Nordic countries

Renewable energy could power the Nordic countries
The Nordic countries could manage their energy supply through renewable energy alone but it would require the right mix of energy sources and an adaptation of both energy storage and distribution. This is the conclusion of a new study from Uppsala University, published in the journal Nature Energy. “Many are sceptic to entirely or partly removing nuclear power and fossil fuels, since there can be large fluctuations in how much electricity can be produced with renewable energy.

Climate change affects decomposition of organic materials

A study by researchers at Uppsala University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences shows that the decomposition of organic materials in lakes, rivers and streams is controlled on a large scale by the climate, and in particular by the water balance. Knowing how quickly this decomposition happens is key to our ability to understand how the turnover of organic materials is affected by environmental changes.

"Zombie solar cells" promise innovation for photovoltaic technology

"Zombie solar cells" promise innovation for photovoltaic technology
The Gerrit Boschloo’s group at the Department of Chemistry-Ångström Laboratory, Division of Physical Chemistry, Uppsala University, has just discovered "zombie solar cells". The so-called Grätzel cells, which are old dye-sensitised solar cells, were still active despite the fact that the electrolyte conducting electricity between the minus and plus poles had evaporated.
