Defence of dissertation in the field of engineering physics, Paula Sirén, M.Sc.(Tech.)

Successful fusion power plant requires versatile communication between the experts of plasma and reactor physics

Paula Sirén, M.Sc.(Tech.), will defend the dissertation "Modelling of JET and ITER reactor relevant plasma neutron source for neutronics calculation chain" on 19 June 2018 at 13.00 at the Aalto University School of Science, lecture hall M1, Otakaari 1, Espoo. Properties of reactor relevant plasmas have been studied from the view of scenario modelling, fast particle physics and neutronics in this thesis.

Opponent: Professor Massimo Nocente, University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy

Custos: Professor Filip Tuomisto, Aalto University School of Science, Department of Applied Physics

Greenhouse gas emissions from permafrost area larger than earlier estimated

Plant roots in soil stimulate microbial decomposition, a mechanism called the priming effect. A recent study published in Nature Geoscience shows that the priming effect alone can cause emission of 40 billion tonnes carbon from permafrost by 2100.
