Variability of the magnetospheric electric field due to high-speed solar wind convection from 1964 to 2009

Focusing on the classification of solar winds into three types of flux: (1) slow winds, (2) fluctuating winds, and (3) high speed-solar winds HSSW (V ≥ 450 km/s on average day), the influence of the convection electric field (EM) via the flow of HSSWs during storms in the internal magnetosphere and on the stability of magnetospheric plasma at high latitudes was investigated. The study involved 1964-2009 period, which...

Optimizing community participation in the management of Yala Wetland Ecosystem, Lake Victoria Basin, Kenya: The Yala Hub Framework

Wetlands are particularly important environmental assets whose sustainability requires meaningful participation of the riparian communities in their management. Yala Wetland is an important resource whose key challenges involve land and water resource use for competing interests which prompted Siaya and Busia County regional Governments to initiate preparation, a Land Use Plan (LUP)/Strategic Environmental Assessment...

Isotherms, kinetic and thermodynamic studies of methylene blue adsorption on chitosan flakes derived from African giant snail shell

In the present study, modeling of 19 adsorption isotherms, 8 kinetic models and thermodynamics of methylene blue (MB) adsorption on chitosan flakes synthesized using Archachatina marginata shell wastes was investigated in a batch mode. The operational parameters’ effects on the MB adsorption were studied. The model parameters were statistically analyzed using 10 error functions. The choices of the best fitted...
