Nucleation of Sulphuric Acid and Water - Laboratory and Atmospheric Observations
Škrabalová, Lenka ; Ždímal, Vladimír (advisor) ; Řezáčová, Daniela (referee) ; Bartovská, Lidmila (referee)
1 ABSTRACT: This study is dedicated to the study of nucleation of sulphuric acid and water, which presents the key process associated with secondary aerosol formation via gas to particle conversion. We investigated the nucleation rates, new aerosol particles formation and growth dynamics of newly nucleated particles. These processes were explored in both laboratory and field experiments. In the laboratory measurements, we explored the H2SO4 - H2O nucleation rates and growth rates of newly formed particles under well-defined conditions and we also investigated the effect of experimental conditions on particle growth dynamics. Furthermore, we proposed a model, which predicts the particle growth and accounts for condensation of H2SO4, H2O and NH3. The comparison of experimental growth rates with atmospheric ones was made and resulting implications of the chemical nature of compounds involved in the early growth of nucleated particles is also presented. To investigate the atmospheric H2SO4 - H2O nucleation and new particle formation, we analysed a two-year long dataset of particle number size distributions, obtained from a urban background station in Prague Suchdol. A special attention was given to a recently reported special feature of particle growth dynamics - a particle shrinkage following previous new...
The impacts of the policy entrepreneurship of the European Commission in the field of energy on the gas markets of Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Lithuania
Bednář, Martin ; Šlosarčík, Ivo (advisor) ; Škrábalová, Lenka (referee)
The goal of this thesis is to explain the current dynamical development of the energy policy of the EU with the focus on the gas sector. Furthermore, this work examines what role in that process plays the European Commission. Lastly, it seeks to ascertain whether the EU's energy policy has a real impact on the development of the gas markets of Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Lithuania. The first two questions are answered with the aid of John W. Kingdon's Multiple stream theory. The conclusion has it that the key role in the creation of the EU's energy policy was taken up by the European Commission, which can be described as the Kingdon's policy entrepreneur. As a true entrepreneur the Commission attempted to build the way for the creation of the single EU gas market, which would be based on sufficient cross-border infrastructure and diversified gas imports. Such a conclusion is supported by the Commission's activities leading to the adoption of important energy legislation, as the third energy package, and essential funds as were European Energy Programme for Recovery and the Connecting Europe Facility. Latter, this work looks into the third research question. On the case studies of Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Lithuania it proves, that the outputs of the entrepreneur activities of the Commission...
Influence of local heating to PM10 levels in urban atmosphere
Píšová, Martina ; Hovorka, Jan (advisor) ; Škrabalová, Lenka (referee)
This master thesis evaluates the spatial variability of concentrations of PM10 on the area of towns Mladá Boleslav, Kosmonosy and small village Plazy during one month in the winter of 2013. Using a network measurements, we tried to determine whether sources of pollution are inside the city, or whether these harmful substances are transferred from the outside of the city to the area of the city. For the measurements we used a set of 9 portable laser nephelometers DustTrak (8520, TSI), which were placed on the roofs of schools. In the same time the device called beta-prachoměr (beta dust-meter) was continuously measuring concentrations of PM10, and we also monitored basic meteorological parameters (temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction). All these parameters were continuously measured at five minutes intervals. Also we did personal walks through the city, during which we measured personal exposure to PM10 concentrations. This exposure was compared with exposure of stationary monitors, and finally the differences were quantified. In Mladá Boleslav and in Kosmonosy, the same trend of concentrations of PM10 was observed at all selected locations in the city. Different trend of PM10 concentrations was observed in the village Plazy, where the peaks were higher and more frequent, especially in...
The Activity of European Peoples Party in The European Parliament. The Challanges and The Perspectives
Málek, Jan ; Rovná, Lenka (advisor) ; Škrábalová, Lenka (referee)
Text of the thesis focuses on the activity of the Group of the European People's Party in the European Parliament. It focuses on this issue from three different perspectives. The first perspective presents a theoretical approach on the concept of europarty as transnational political actor that has developed on the basis of the development of the European integration and the development of the European institutions. The second perspective focuses on the work of the European People's Party, as a classic example transnational European party structure. It refers to its historical development and formation in the context of strengthening the position of the European Parliament. It also encompasses the Group of the European People's Party and its influence in the European Parliament in historical perspective. At the same time reveals the inner structure, program policies and operation mechanism of this parliamentary faction. The third perspective focuses on the analysis of the cohesion of the Group of the European People's Party in the seventh term of the European Parliament. The group cohesion is viewed as one of the main characters determining the strength and importance of the parliamentary factions. The analysis is based on the theoretical assumptions of British political scientist Simon Hix. In...
Impact of the European Parliament on composition of the European Commission under the Lisbon Treaty
Linková, Jana ; Škrábalová, Lenka (referee) ; Rovná, Lenka (advisor)
The topic of this diploma thesis is "Influence of the European Parliament on the constitution of second Barroso Commission under the Lisbon Treaty". The thesis concentrates on the field of new institutional framework settlement under the Lisbon Treaty on the example of constitution of the new European Commission. The work brings an overview of both phases of European Commissions nomination procedure, designation of the President and nomination of single Commissioners. This work is also focused on the procedure of the Commissioners hearings in the European Parliament Committees. The work also analyzes draft interinstitutional framework agreement, as it was negotiated along with consultations on composition of the new European Commission.
2009 European Parliament Election
Křižanová, Kristýna ; Škrábalová, Lenka (referee) ; Rovná, Lenka (advisor)
The thesis aims to present and eventually apply the theory of second order election by analysing the 2009 European parliament election. There are five case studies included that intend to unveil whether the established theoretical premises are still valid or not. The thesis attempts to answer the question whether the tangible disrepancies among old and new members states still remain in place or wheter this divergence is being mitigated.
Nordic cooperation. Its transformation in the second half of the 20th century. and the current form
Doušová, Iva ; Rovná, Lenka (advisor) ; Škrábalová, Lenka (referee)
Diploma thesis "Nordic Cooperation. Its Transformation in the Second Half of the 20th Century and Its Current Shape" deals with the Nordic cooperation among Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden from the second half of the 20th century with the focus on the period from the 1990s till 2008. At the beginning, there is an introduction to the history of cooperation in Scandinavia till the 1990s and a description of two main institutions of the Nordic cooperation: the Nordic Council and the Nordic Council of Ministers. The main chapter analyses the Nordic cooperation from the 1990s, it focuses on areas and intensity of the cooperation and describes concrete programmes, projects, institutions, targets and results of the cooperation. The thesis also deals with the question of the impact of the three Baltic States involvement in the Nordic cooperation in the 1990s. The answer is that the internal Nordic cooperation has been developing very intensively - it was demonstrated by the analysis of the Nordic cooperation in the 1990s in the main chapter - without any affecting of the Baltic States involvement in the main. On the contrary, the Baltic States involvement has brouhgt the external opportunity for the Nordic countries to integrate into the cooperation in the Baltic Sea region.
