Environmental Impact Assessment and Integrated Water Resources Management

by

Manouris G. and Gioutsou A.

General

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) plays an important role in the framework of the efforts aiming at the formulation of a complete water resources management. In our paper this issue is examined in an integrated way. The following issues are particularly examined : the notion of the EIA in...

Assessment of mining soil improvement after construction and demolition wastes amendment additions evaluated by microbiological analysis

by

Murcia F.J., Gomez M.J., Palop A. and Garcia G.

General

Major environmental problems in metallic mining areas come from the hazard of metal pollution of surrounding areas. Therefore, an appropriated management of these soils is necessary for minimizing the associated risks. Some properties of mining soils, such as elevated metal concentrations, pH and...

Is the Last Years Abrupt Warming in the National Observatory of Athens Records a Climate Change Manifestation?

by

Repapis C.C., Philandras C.M., P.D. Kalabokas , P. Zanis and C.S.Zerefos

General

Instrumental data time series show an average global warming of approximately 0.90C over the last century. Eastern Mediterranean air temperature follows the northern hemisphere (NH) secular trend till 1970s, while the NH warming of the last 30 years is not noticeable in the eastern Mediterranean...

Adsorption of hexavalent uranium on dunite

by

Konstantinou M., Demetriou A. and Pashalidis I.

General

Pollution of the environment with uranium and associated health effects to human have recently become of major concern, particularly due to the use of depleted uranium in armourbreaking bullets. Indeed, uranium in environmentally significant concentrations is found near to uranium mining and...

A Wind-Driven Hydrodynamic and Pollutant Transport Model

by

Tsanis I.K. and Saied U.

General

A program is developed that includes two hydrodynamic models, a 2D depth-averaged (2DH) and a Quasi-3D (Q3D), and a pollutant transport model that uses a 1st order upwinding and a 3rd order QUICKEST numerical schemes. Several tests were performed in two test basins in order to examine the...

Mercury content in garden soils of urban agglomeration

by

Dabkowska-Naskr?t H.and R??a?ski Sz.

General

The study report the degree of mercury contamination in garden soils of urban agglomeration and local sources of heavy metals emission like traffic and coal combustion. The urban soils have been compared with cultivated rural counterparts, developed on similar parent material. Mercury contents in...

Photocatalytic disinfection of water polluted by Pseudomonas Aeruginosa

by

Daneshvar N., Niaei A., Akbari S., Aber S., and Kazemian N.

General

Photocatalysis by titanium dioxide (TiO2) is a water treatment method. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a microorganism resistant to chlorine and UV-C irradiation. TiO2 photocatalytic technology can destroy bacteria, which are resistant to oxidative destruction of cell membrane caused by sole UV...

The distribution of Cd and Cu in sediments covered with algal mat

by

Ladakis M., Belias C., Triantafyllaki S., Dassenakis M. and Scoullos M.

General

In coastal marine environments, with shallow, warm and calm waters, it is sometimes possible to observe the presence of organosedimentary structures that are commonly flat and laminar in shape. These structures are called algal mats or recent stromatolites due to their remarkable similarities to...

Route optimization for solid waste collection: Trabzon (Turkey) case study

by

Apaydin O. and Talha Gonullu M.

General

In a municipal solid waste management system, decreasing collection/hauling costs, which consist of 85 % of total disposal expenditure, can be carried out by a route optimization. Thus, a huge amount of economical benefits is getting furnished. If route optimization is performed in solid waste...
