Phosphate pollution control in waste waters using new bio-sorbents

  Thermally activated barks/stems and their ashes of Ficus religiosa, Cassia auriculata, Punica granatum and Calotropis gigantean are found to have remarkable affinity towards phosphate ions. The sorption characteristics of these bio-products towards phosphate from synthetically prepared waste waters have been studied with respect to various physicochemical parameters such as...

Regional model for peak discharge estimation in ungauged drainage basin using GIUH, Snyder, SCS and triangular models

  Due to the importance of instantaneous peak discharge estimation for watershed management study in countries like Iran, the search is ongoing to correlate geomorphologic and hydrologic parameters to present models. This paper describes the use of synthetic unit hydrograph at drainage basin of Mehran (Joestan River). The obtained results were compared with recorded peak discharge in outlet of watershed. The...

Limnochemical characteristics of river Yamuna in Yamunanagar, Haryana, India

  The present paper deals with the monthly variations of limnochemical characteristics of river Yamuna, Yamunanagar which is polluted with industrial effluents and domestic sewage via, maskara nala. Three sampling points that is, Station-Y1: Upstream of the river; Station-Y2: Point of influx of industrial effluents and domestic sewage; Station-Y3: About 5 km downstream from station Y2 were selected for the...

Seasonal and interannual validation of satellite-measured reservoir levels at the Kainji dam

  Although several studies have demonstrated the potential for inland water monitoring using satellite radar altimeters, the technology still carries with it certain limitations. Therefore, the direct application of altimetry data to reservoir management is often preceded by validation of satellite altimetry data with reliable ground-measured data. Kainji reservoir in Nigeria was selected for this study due to...

Removal of phosphorus from Nigeria’s Agbaja iron ore through the degradation ability of Micrococcus species

  Study on the potential of Micrococcus species to remove phosphorus (P) from Nigeria’s Agbaja iron ore was carried out by submerged culture technique. Findings reveal that Micrococcus species which was originally isolated from the ore samples solubilized phosphorus with 69.66% phosphorus removal rate. The microbe also completely accumulated iron (Fe) and cadmium (Cd) ions found in the...
