Groundwater management using a new coupled model of flow analytical solution and particle swarm optimization

  In this research, a steady state analytical solution is suggested and derived for the groundwater flow equation in a homogeneous unconfined aquifer. The solution can be used for calculating the hydraulic heads in a complex flow field caused by multi injection-pumping wells having different rates in a domain subjected to a uniform recharge. The analytical method, used for flow simulation, is coupled with the...

Geoelectric evaluation of groundwater prospect within Zion Estate, Akure, Southwest, Nigeria

  Electrical Resistivity method involving Vertical Electrical Sounding (VES) have been used to evaluate the groundwater potential and aquifer protective capacity of the overburden units within Zion Estate area. Sixty-eight Vertical Electrical Soundings were carried out using Schlumberger configuration with AB/2 varying from 1 to 65 m. The generated geoelectric section from the interpretation of the sounding...

Surface water quality and risk assessment in the vicinity of Sylhet City

  This paper is aimed to determine the surface water quality in an around Sylhet City. We used surface water for our keen purpose. Surface water as well as ground water has been contaminated by humans. Nowadays, water pollution is a major global problem which requires ongoing evaluation and revision of water resource policy at all levels. In addition to the acute problems of water pollution in developing...

Assessment of water quality in Noyyal River through water quality index

  Assessment of water quality in Noyyal River from 20/12/2010 to 27/12/2011 was carried out in this study. Water samples were collected from the Noyyal River at a stretch of 3800 m. The sampling locations have been fixed at every 50 m. The parameters were estimated such as dissolved oxygen (DO), pH, Temperature, chemical oxygen demand (COD), total dissolved solids (TDS), Sulphate, Chloride,...

Mineralogy and physico-chemical properties of alluvial clays from far-north region of Cameroon: A tool for an environmental problem

  In a view to evaluate their potential use as adsorbent for wastewater treatment, the mineralogical and physico-chemical properties of alluvial clays from far north region of Cameroon has been determined. Chemical, X- ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscope (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analysis of the...
