Regression analysis between sediment transport rates and stream discharge for the Nestos River, Greece

by

Angelis I., Metallinos A. and Hrissanthou V.

General

Systematic measurements of sediment transport rates and water discharge were conducted in the Nestos River (Greece), at a place located between the outlet of Nestos River basin and the river delta. This basin area is about 838 km2 and lies downstream of the Platanovrysi Dam. Separate measurements of...

Overview of the Temporal Variation of PM10 Mass Concentrations in the two Major Cities in Greece: Athens and Thessaloniki

by

Triantafyllou E. and Biskos G.

General

Literature reports have indicated that Particulate Matter (PM) concentrations in the atmosphere over the major urban centres of Greece are high compared to other European cities of the same size. The great majority of these reports are based on measurements that have been conducted over a limited...

Effect of calcium cyanamide on pathogenic escherichia coli during mesophilic composting and impact on composting process

by

Simujide H., Aorigele C., Wang C.J., Manda B. and Ma L.N.

General

The objective of the study was to determine the effect of CaCN2 on pathogenic E. coli as an antimicrobial agent and its impact on composting progress as an amendment in dairy cow manure based mixtures composted at laboratory scale. The changes in physical parameters, chemical parameters and...

Ammonia removal from fertilizer plant effluents by a coupled electrostatic shielding based electrodialysis / electrodeionization process

by

Dermentzis K., Davidis A., Chatzichristou C. and Dermentzi A.

General

Electrically and ionically conducting graphite powder beds interposed between the anode and cathode inside an electrolytic setup are used as intermediate bipolar electrodes. The beds cause electric field discontinuity by eliminating the applied electric field locally within their mass and act as...

Temporal variability of disinfection by-products concentration in urban public water system

by

Siddique A., Saied S., Zaigham N.A., Mumtaz M., Ali Mahar G. and Mohiuddin S.

General

The occurrence of trihalomethanes (THMs) was studied in the drinking water samples from urban water supply network of Karachi city that served more than 18 million people. Drinking water samples were collected from 58 locations in summer (May-August) and winter (November-February) seasons. The major...

Thermal comfort estimation in relation to different orientation in mountainous regions in Greece by using artificial neural networks

by

Chronopoulos K.I., Kamoutsis A.P. and Matsoukis A.S.

General

This study focuses on the estimation of thermal comfort conditions in a high alt. site (1455 m) in Apodotia (MA), Greece, by using the MLP neural network model. This estimation is based on the air temperature (t) and relative humidity (f) data of the middle (1078-1163 m) and of the low altitude...

Regional climate change scenarios for Greece: future temperature and precipitation projections form ensembles of RCMs

by

Tolika K., Zanis P. and Anagnostopoulos C.

General

The potential regional future changes in seasonal (winter and summer) temperature and precipitation are assessed for the greater area of Greece over the 21st century, under A2, A1B and B2 future emission scenarios of IPCC. Totally twenty-two simulations from various regional climate models (RCMs)...
