Polluted Water Effluent in the Sea


Demetriou J. D.


In this experimental study some measurements and their analysis are presented concerning the polluted water effluent disposal in the sea water. The wastes are disposed through the round openings of a submerged in the sea diffuser, in the form of turbulent jets which are mixing (diffusing) with the...

Sorption and de-sorption of 2,4 -D and Atrazine from water environment by waste tyre rubber granules and its management


Alam J.B., Dickshit A.K. and Bandyopadhyay M.


Waste tyre rubber granules were used as sorption medium in water treatment technology to remove up to 1 mg l-1 of 2,4-D and atrazine. The removal was found to be 83.2% and 87% corresponding to initial concentration of 0.5 and 1 mg l-1 of 2,4-D whereas it was 84.2% and 87.6% for atrazine. On the...

Impact of Farming Activities on Vegetation in Olokemeji Forest Reserve, Nigeria


Ogunleye A.J., Adeola A.O., Ojo O. L. and Aduradola A.M.


An investigation was carried out in Olokemeji Forest Reserve (Nigeria) to examine the impact of farming activities on the vegetation of the reserve. The 5,888 hectare forest reserve was divided into three zones for the purpose of this study. They are natural forest (zone 1), plantation (zone 2) and...

Lead and copper contamination in small arms firing ranges


Dermatas D., Menouno N., Dutko P., Dadachov M., Arienti P. and Tsaneva V.


Firing range activities have been proven to adversely impact the environment. The main concern in small arms firing ranges (SAFRs) is the fate and transport of heavy metals from bullets and bullet fragments accumulating in soil with lead (Pb) being the primary contaminant. Frequently however...

Improvement of H2O2 Stabilization in Rainwater Samples


Ceron R.M., Muriel M. and Ceron J.G.


Peroxides collected in rainwater readily decompose in the natural matrix, consequently it is hard to estimate their values present during precipitation events. For this reason, only few data concerning the concentration of aqueous H2O2 in dew, cloud and rainwater are available. Therefore, it is...

Geologic and Oceanographic Data Determining the "Old Foreshore Zone", of the Heraklion Coastal Area, Crete Island


Pehlivanoglou G.K. and Papathanasoglou A.


Geologic, oceanographic and topographic data and field measurements, of the coastal area in front of Heraklion City, Crete Island, as well as deep sea wave measurements and shallow wave prediction numerical modelling were used for the determination of the 1884 foreshore. Data from numerous drills...

Ranking spatial interpolation techniques using a GIS-based DSS


Naoum S. and Tsanis I.K.


A GIS-based Decision Support System (DSS) was developed to select the appropriate interpolation technique used in studying rainfall spatial variability. The DSS used the ArcView GIS platform by incorporating its spatial analysis capabilities, the programming language "AVENUE", and simple statistical...

Weathering of Lead in Fort Irwin Firing Range Soils


Dermatas D., Dadachov M., Dutko P., Menouno N., Arienti P. and Shen G.


This paper investigates the physical and chemical transformation of metallic lead (Pb) in Ft. Irwin firing range soils. Soil samples were collected from berms of two small arms firing ranges, an active one and an abandoned one, located in the Mojave desert. Pb bullet fragments found in field samples...
