Impacts of climate variability and land-use change on hydrology in the period 1981-2009 in the central highlands of Vietnam


Dao Nguyen Khoi et al. View all

Hydrology and water resources

In this study, we investigated the separate and combined impacts of climate and land-use changes on hydrological response in the Central Highlands of Vietnam during the period 1981-2009. The Mann-Kendall and Pettit tests were applied to detect the trends in the hydro-meteorological data. The Soil...

Investigating the citizens’ intention level in environmental impact assessment participation through an extended theory of planned behavior model


Satria Fadil Persada et al. View all

Environmental Management and Policies

This study aims to measure citizens’ behavior intention (BI) in Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) participation. An extended theory of planned behavior (TPB), which includes perceived government support and perceived environmental concern, is used as the predictor model. A total of 240...

Genetic algorithm for oil spill automatic detection using synthetic aperture radar


Maged Marghany et al. View all

Pollution Control Technology

This work has exploited a Genetic algorithm for oil spill automatic detection. This is implemented to sequences of RADARSAT-2 SAR ScanSAR narrow single beam data in the Gulf of Mexico. The study shows that the implementation of crossover is generated an accurate oil slick pattern. This is confirmed...

A proposed method for the assessment of the interactive heavy metal accumulation in soils


Ioannis K. Kalavrouziotis et al. View all

Pollution Control Technology

A method is proposed for the assessment of the interactive accumulation of heavy metals in soils. Sixty surface soil samples were collected from fifteen sites, at a depth of 0-30cm, evenly distributed, within the 30,700ha comprising the study area. It was found that at least some of these metals...

Cationic Dye Removal By Sugarcane Bagasse Activated Carbon From Aqueous Solution


Riham Hazzaa et al. View all

Water and Wastewater Treatment

Low cost agricultural waste adsorbents can be viable alternatives to activated carbon for the treatment of contaminated wastewater. Sugarcane Bagasse, an abundant agriculture waste in Egypt, was used in the present study to prepare activated carbon. Batch adsorption experiments were conducted to...

Application of response surface methodology for ultrasound-assisted rapid ‎adsorption of meso-tetrakis(4-sulfonatophenyl) porphyrin by copper ‎nanowire-loaded in activated carbon: Characterization, equilibrium and ‎kinetic modeling


Gholamreza Karimipour et al. View all


The combined ultrasonic assisted/nanoparticle based procedure was described for an economical and rapid removal of meso-tetrakis (4-sulfonatophenyl) porphyrin (TSPP) by copper nanowires loaded on activated carbon (Cu-NW-AC). The synthesized Cu-NW-AC was investigated by scanning electron microscopy...
