Modelling soil temperature on the boreal plain with an emphasis on the rapid cooling period
To accurately model soil temperatures on the Boreal Plain, factors that influence fine-grained soils during the rapid cooling period must first be identified. The effects of air temperature, soil moisture and snow depth ...
Characterization and utilization of fly ash derived from the co-combustion of biomass and coal as a mineral admixture for ordinary Portland cement
Co-firing coal with renewable/waste biomass for power generation can mitigate the atmospheric discharge of pollutants (e.g., SO2) and green-house gases. Wide-spread application of this technology is impeded, however, by ...
Fish biomonitoring in an industrial environment : the Toxicity Early Warning System (TEWS)
Industrial, agricultural and municipal effluent discharge into receiving waters continues to be a significant environmental problem. Currently, industrial effluent quality is assessed using chemical assays or by evaluating ...
Production of bio-crude from forestry waste by hydro-liquefaction in sub-/super-critical methanol and upgrading of bio-crude by hydro-treating
Bio-energy is renewable and clean (with trace amount of sulfur and neutral in terms of CO2 emission), and abundant in resource, thus it could be a securable and sustainable energy for future. Due to the declining reserve ...
Modeling the transport of Escherichia coli through the subsurface environment
Subsurface microbial transport is an important concern in many engineering projects. Expanding the knowledge of this process is important for the risk assessment of sites capable of releasing pathogenic bacterial species ...
