Using a market-type allocation system to confront water scarcity: an inter-district approach in Greece


Dionysis Latinopoulos et al. View all

Water Resources Management

This study examines the implication of a market-based system to allocate water regionally in one of the most intensively irrigated areas of Greece. The proposed approach combines elements from administrative allocation and tradable water rights in order to assess several water supply scenarios under...

Effect of soil scarification on natural regeneration of mature scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) stands in Greece


Grigoriadis Nikolaos et al. View all

Ecosystems and Natural Resources Management

The natural regeneration of Scots pine stands at the Sarakatsana location in the Pieria Mountains improved considerably after the removal of the dense ground vegetation followed mechanical soil scarification. The experimental design consisted of replications on scarified and non-scarified soil. The...

Preliminary study of the effect of using biosorbents on the pollution of the treated water


Hossam Altaher et al. View all

Water and Wastewater Treatment

Several adsorbents have been tried out by researchers to remove different pollutants from wastewater. However, the adverse effect of these biosorbents on the treated water and the possibility of leaching new pollutants to the treated water have not been investigated. A batch technique was employed...
