Mitigating seismic risk in developing countries: A case study on the 2005 Kashmir earthquake
The increase in awareness and understanding of earthquakes has encouraged the development of culturally appropriate risk mitigation strategies that aim to build community resilience in preparation for the next natural ...
The use of a distributed hydrologic model to evaluate the location of development and flood control reservoirs
The Little Cypress Creek watershed remains one of the least developed areas in Houston. A Vflo™ physically-based, distributed hydrologic model is used to predict the effects of future development within the watershed. Model ...
Iron (II)-calcium carbonate: Precipitation interaction
Little attention has been paid to the reaction of mixed calcium-iron carbonate in solutions in comparison with the reaction of other solids such as calcium carbonate, calcium sulfate and barium sulfate. As a result, little ...
Effect of geosorbents on the antibacterial activity of nC60
The rapid development of nanotechnology calls for a timely assessment of the impact of manufactured nanoparticles on environmental settings. This study investigated the association between a C 60 water suspension (nC 60 ) ...
Characterization of sugars in fine particles – Biomass burning and soil organic matter as two major sources
Fine particulate matter samples were collected at two rural sites and one urban site in Texas from November 2005 to July 2006 for quantification of sugars. Several extraction methods were applied to optimize sugar recovery, ...
Nanocarboneous materials in water: Interaction of nanocarbon(60) with soil and organic pollutants
The property of nanosized colloidal C 60 (nano-C 60 ) suspensions prepared by ultra sonication method was examined for electrochemical properties and stability under different physiochemical conditions. Adsorption experiments ...
