Abstract

Increased ozone is linked to increases an air pollution, causing a wide range of impacts that will affect ecology. Ozone, a secondary pollutant, produced via photochemical reaction between NOX, CO, CH4 and VOCs with sunlight. Further, the increasing of ozone trends significant in the most of...

Abstract

The current research was aimed to study water quality and assess trophic state using chlorophyll a as indicator in the upper and middle Ing River. Water quality surveys were carried out every 2 months during January to December 2017. Data were collected from 10 stations in the middle zone of upper...

Abstract

There has been a severe air pollution in Thailand due to a rise of particulate matter (PM) i.e. PM10 (particulate matter nominally <10 mm in diameter) and PM2.5 (particulate matter nominally <2.5 mm in diameter) concentration. One of the main sources of PM is Biomass burning under outdoor condition which happens considerably in sugarcane field at a harvesting period as sugarcane burning is the farmer preferred method to get rid of the leaves before sugarcane cutting. Sugarcane is an importance economic crop of Thailand, where the cultivated area is approximately 10 million rai. However, more than half of burned sugarcane translocated to sugar mill in last harvested season. Previous study revealed that silicate-dominated particle matter was found in sugarcane burning case and silicate-dominated PM (<4 mm aerodynamic diameter) was identified as a cause of lung cancer. Hence, campaign to reduce sugarcane burning is important to the health of Thai people. Brazil which is the biggest sugarcane producer in the world is an example of country who was able to lower sugarcane burning by adopting a green protocol to encourage farmers to use more harvesting machine. After adopting green protocol for 4 years, however, the average yield per area is decreasing. Therefore, Thailand should adopt a green protocol together with improve soil organic matter. This practice should be an alternative promising practice to mitigate sugarcane burning, air pollution encourages fertility of sugarcane system for environmentally friendly and sustainable sugarcane production of Thailand.

Abstract

Gas chromatography coupled with micro electron capture detection (GC-╬╝ECD) was developed and validated for the residue analysis of triazole fungicides (e.g., tetraconazole, hexaconazole, propiconazole, and difenoconazole) in soil samples. Under the optimum conditions, the separation of target...
