Abstract

Given that water scarcity is a big issue nowadays, wastewater treatment is necessary for the future water use and the prevention of environmental contamination. In this context, this study presents the results of the statistical analysis of ten water parameters before and after the water cleaning...

Abstract

The prediction and advanced warning of landslide hazards in large-scale areas must deal with a large amount of uncertainty, therefore a growing number of studies are using stochastic models to analyze the probability of landslide occurrences. In this study, we used a modified Thiessen's polygon...

Abstract

Continuous cover forestry (CCF) aims to emulate small natural disturbances and take advantage of natural regeneration. To implement these management practices successfully, knowledge of advance regeneration under the canopy in different conditions is crucial. Therefore, the aim of this study was to ...

Abstract

Radiation exposure is one of most important factors to manage following a nuclear emergency. Actual measurement is the best way to obtain information concerning the dose received by the people in terms of accuracy and reliability. However, in practice, it is difficult to collect measurements from...

Abstract

In this study, revenue uncertainty measures of major crops in the Goharbaran region of Sari have been calculated and compared. There are different measures for uncertainty; variance and Tail Value at Risk (TVaR) have been used in this study. The first step in the application of the uncertainty...

Abstract

Extreme hydrometeorological events have far-reaching impacts on our daily life and may occur more frequently with rising global temperatures. The probability of the concurrence of these extreme events in the upper reaches of the river network is of particular importance for the lower reaches, which ...

Abstract

Investigation to the relation between meteorological drought and hydrological drought is important for facilitating early warning and mitigation of hydrological drought. Therefore, the propagation from the meteorological drought to hydrological drought in the upper Shaying River Basin, China was...
