  3. Spatiotemporal variability of micropollutants in sewer overflows 

    Mutzner, Lena (2019)
    Motivation. Our surface water is impacted by a wide variety of contaminants released through human activities. One contaminant group of concern is micropollutants, which can have eco-toxicological effects in trace concentrations. Micropollutants, for example, include plant protection products and biocides, which are specifically designed to harm organisms. An important input pathway of micropollutants to surface water can be untreated ...

  5. Ecohydrological sensitivity to climatic variables: dissecting the water tower of Europe 

    Mastrotheodoros, Theodoros (2019)
    The water balance in mountain regions describes the relations between precipitation, snow accumulation and melt, evapotranspiration and soil moisture and determines the availability of water for runoff in downstream areas. Climate change is affecting the water budget of mountains at a fast pace and it has thus become a priority for hydrologists to quantify the vulnerability of each hydrological component to climate change, in order to ...

  6. Detection of Hazardous Ground Movements with Instantaneous Velocity Estimates by GNSS 

    Hohensinn, Roland (2019)
    The motivation for this work is to rapidly assess whether a GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) station is moving hazardously or not. The GNSS stations of interest are located on moving land masses – like rock glaciers – in alpine regions in Switzerland. The purpose is to support real-time natural hazard early warning systems with information on ground movements. One of the main problems with geodetic high-precision GNSS positioning ...

  7. Optimal energy system and retrofit measures for residential buildings/districts 

    Miglani, Somil (2018)
    Scientific evidence for climate change and the exacerbating role of anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is indisputable. A large part of the GHG emissions can be attributed to urban built infrastructure including residential buildings, and therefore, must go through a process of decarbonization. Specific policy measures are carefully drafted in order to accelerate the decarbonization process, especially in the EU and ...

  8. Repurposing gamma-hydroxybutyrate for neuropsychiatric disorders? Examining its effects on sleep neurophysiology, neuro- immune interaction and brain metabolites in healthy men 

    Dornbierer, Dario (2019)
    Neuropsychiatric disorders represent a major health care challenge of the 21st century. Despite the high prevalence of these disorders, most of the currently available psychopharmacological therapies show suboptimal efficacy. Thus, there is an urgent need for novel, effective and sustainable psychiatric treatments. Unfortunately, major pharmaceutical companies have abandoned neuropsychiatric research due to the high risk of failure ...

  10. The role of the Southern Ocean in the global biogeochemical cycles of cadmium and zinc and their isotopes 

    Sieber, Matthias (2019)
    Trace elements, particularly transition metals, are critical for the growth of marine organisms, acting as micronutrients that fulfil vital functions in numerous biological processes. Over the past decades, a rapidly expanding body of research has shown that their oceanic distributions play a key role in controlling primary production in the upper ocean, influence the functioning of ocean ecosystems and impact the global carbon cycle. ...

  12. Magnetic Catheters for Cardiac Arrhythmia Ablations 

    Chautems, Christophe (2019)
    Effective radiofrequency ablation for patients affected by cardiac arrhythmias corresponds to significant and long-term improvements in their quality of life and a significant reduction in the risk of sudden cardiac death. These procedures do not always succeed, primarily due to the inability to precisely and accurately navigate a catheter inside the heart. By enabling the precise control of a flexible catheter using external magnetic ...
