    Anthropogenic CO2 emissions, which are resulting in ocean acidification and a decrease in the saturation state for calcium carbonate (Ω), are a particular threat to calcifying marine biota. The aim of this thesis is to fill important knowledge gaps ...
  • Arnaldsson, Andri (University of Washington, 2007)
    Harmonic quantum transition state theory (HQTST), sometimes referred to as ’instanton theory’ or ’ImF theory’, has been implemented in an efficient way and tested. HQTST is analogous to the more familiar classical harmonic transition state theory ...
