Environmental model of Lake Harrison
A model was developed to predict effects of future urbanization in Lake Harrison at The Woodlands, Texas. A steady-state model was formulated first to show general trends of monthly lake response to wet and dry climatic ...
Calcium carbonate precipitation inhibition in potable water and oil field brines
Conditions that will cause calcium carbonate precipitation exist in most domestic hot water heaters and virtually all of the water injection wells used by the American oil producing industry. After discovery in 1936 of the ...
Filtering rate inhibition of Daphnia (Crustacea; Cladocera)
The ability of lacustrine phytoplankton to limit zooplankton grazing rates has been well documented in the last two decades by Ryther, Rigler, McMahon, Burns, and many others. The experimental part of this study was designed ...
Kinetic and regeneration aspects of the adsorption of phenol on activated carbon
Physical-chemical treatment of liquid wastes is becoming widespread. One promising physical treatment process is contaminant adsorption on activated carbon. Units are frequently operated with the inclusion of carbon ...
The effects of hypochlorite on bacterial capsular material
The uptake of chlorine by mixed bacterial cultures of varying polysaccharide content was studied in a homogeneous reaction system. The destructive effects of hypochlorite oxidation were noted by measuring decreases in ...
