Abstract

Ammonia has been of concern for its high toxicity to aquatic species and frequent detection in waters worldwide. This study calculated the national aquatic life criteria for ammonia in China. The temporal and spatial distributions were investigated and the multi-tier ecological risks were assessed...

Abstract

Atmospheric heavy metals have important environmental and health threats. To investigate atmospheric deposition and contamination of heavy metal elements in the glaciers of the eastern Tibetan Plateau (ETP), we collected the surface snow (cryoconites) samples in the Lenglongling Glacier (LG), the...

Abstract

Industrial-scale composting of food waste (FW) was performed at different aeration frequencies (C_5_25: 5 min aeration + 25 min interval, C_10_20: 10 min aeration + 20 min interval, C_15_15: 15 min aeration + 15 min interval and CK: stuffiness) to ascertain the optimal aeration frequency to...

Abstract

Existence of wide spread elevated concentrations of groundwater arsenic (As) across South Asia, including India, has endangered a huge groundwater-based drinking water dependent population. Here, using high-spatial resolution As field-observations (~3 million groundwater sources) across India, we...

Abstract

Shallow lakes account for most of the diffusive CH4 emissions from global lakes, and they also suffer from eutrophication worldwide. Determining the effect of eutrophication on diffusive CH4 fluxes is fundamental to understanding CH4 emissions in shallow lakes. This study aimed to investigate the...

Abstract

Benzotrifluoride (BTF) and its derivatives (BTFs) were found in the groundwater of the Veneto region (Italy) as a result of industrial contamination dating back to the 1970s. In the first survey, BTF and 6 BTFs were identified, out of which 4-chloro-3nitrobenzotrifluoride (3N4CBTF) was the only...

Abstract

This study analyzes the 137Cs behavior in the ponds of Okuma Town from 2015 to 2019 in the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant (FDNPP) exclusion zone. A decline in both particulate and dissolved 137Cs activity concentrations was revealed. The decline rate constants for the particulate 137Cs...

Abstract

Potentially toxic element (PTE) pollution is considered as the main soil environmental problem in the world. Source apportionment and spatial pattern of soil PTEs are essential for soil management. US-EPA positive matrix factorization (EPAPMF) and sequential Gaussian simulation (SGS) are general...
