SEASONAL VARIATION OF GROUNDWATER IRON AND MANGANESE IN DIFFERENT WELL STRUCTURES IN CHANDRAPUR DISTRICT, CENTRAL INDIA

Abstract The study was carried out to assess occurrence and distribution of iron and manganese concentration in groundwater from the Chandrapur district, Central India. For this purpose, 36 sampling locations were identified and groundwater sampling was carried out by grab sampling method in winter, summer and post-monsoon season. Heavy metals concentration for iron and manganese […]

PHYTOREMEDIATION OF CRUDE OIL CONTAMINATED SOIL USING BITTER LEAF (Vernonia amygdalina) AND WATER LEAF (Talinum fruiticosum) IN EFFURUN, NIGERIA

Abstract This study was carried out to assess the phytoremediation potential of Vernonia amygdalina (bitter leaf) and Talinum fruiticosum (water leaf) planted in crude oil contaminated soil. Soil samples were collected randomly from a site at the beginning of the rainy season. The experiment was conducted with different concentrations (0.1 and 1%) of crude oil-contaminated […]

HYBRID SINGLE PARTICLE SIMULATION OF ATMOSPHERIC POLLUTANTS OVER BUNGOMA COUNTY IN KENYA

Abstract Microscale dispersion models with different levels of complexity may be used to assess urban air quality and support decision making for pollution control. Mathematical models calculate pollutant concentrations by solving either analytically a simplified set of parametric equations or numerically a set of differential equations that describe in detail wind flow and pollutant dispersion. […]
