Assessment Of Heavy Metal Sources Across Urban Transportation Facilities In Lagos Metropolis, Nigeria, Olakunle F. Ogundele, I A. Tiamiyu, Anthony I. Iwara 2017 Lagos State University, Ojo, Lagos, Nigeria.

Assessment Of Heavy Metal Sources Across Urban Transportation Facilities In Lagos Metropolis, Nigeria, Olakunle F. Ogundele, I A. Tiamiyu, Anthony I. Iwara

Confluence Journal of Environmental Studies (CJES), Kogi State University, Nigeria

Multivariate statistical tools were employed to identify the sources of heavy metal introduction in soils across urban transportation facilities (roadside, railway, canal, airport, warehouse and bus stop) in Lagos Metropolis, Nigeria. Data for the study was obtained by collecting 30 surface soil samples (0 – 15cm) across 6 transportation facilities. Data obtained was taken to the laboratory for analysis of Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Ni, Pb and Zn using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS) technique. Result showed that four principal components (PCA) were identified as responsible for the data structure explaining 83.5% of the total variance in the data set of ...


Spatial Assessment Of Construction Waste Generated By Residential Buildings In Rural Areas, Florin C. MIHAI, Adrian GROZAVU 2017 "Alexandru Ioan Cuza" University

Spatial Assessment Of Construction Waste Generated By Residential Buildings In Rural Areas, Florin C. Mihai, Adrian Grozavu

Florin C MIHAI

The management of construction waste it is at an early stage in urban areas and lacking in rural areas where this fraction is frequently uncontrolled disposed on public lands. Despite the fact some items of construction waste are considered inert for the environment (soil, concrete) it also contains hazardous items (paint additives, cans, and
containers) or recyclables (plastics, metals, wood). Potential recovery of this waste stream is high if it is properly managed. The paper estimates the potential amounts of waste resulted from residential constructions across rural municipalities of Neamț County between 2002 and 2010. These statistical values are calculated ...


Application Of Ahp Method For Mapping Slope Geomorphic Phenomena, Adrian GROZAVU, Cristian V. PATRICHE, Florin C. MIHAI 2017 Alexandru Ioan Cuza University

Application Of Ahp Method For Mapping Slope Geomorphic Phenomena, Adrian Grozavu, Cristian V. Patriche, Florin C. Mihai

Landslides are common and frequent geomorphic phenomena for the plateau regions in Romania having important consequences, especially economic ones, that needs designing scientific and technical plans for landslide risk mitigation. For this, an important preliminary step is assessing and mapping the landslide susceptibility. This paper examines a plateau zone in eastern Romania providing such a map, based on the
landslides inventory, the digital elevation model (DEM) and the thematic layers of several factors thought to be potential predictors of landslides occurrence: topographic features, land use, and lithology. The methodological framework is based on the analytical hierarchy process (AHP) principles and ...


Comparative Analysis Of Heavy Metal Status In Different Groundwater Sources In Kuje Town, Abuja, Nigeria, Chup C. D, Charles A. Iyanya 2017 University of Abuja, Nigeria

Comparative Analysis Of Heavy Metal Status In Different Groundwater Sources In Kuje Town, Abuja, Nigeria, Chup C. D, Charles A. Iyanya

Confluence Journal of Environmental Studies (CJES), Kogi State University, Nigeria

The study examined heavy metal status of groundwater sources in Kuje Town, Abuja Nigeria. Sixteen (16) groundwater samples were randomly collected from boreholes and wells within the study area and analyzed for 5 heavy metal parameters using standard laboratory procedures Data obtained from the laboratory analysis was analyzed using tables, averages, standard deviation and Independent Samples test. Result showed that the mean values of Manganese (Mn), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn) and iron (Fe) for borehole water were 0.049, 0.118, 0.065 and 0.141mg/l, while those of well water were 0.081, 0.270, 0.100 and ...


Science, Sentience, And Animal Welfare, Robert C. Jones 2017 California State University, Chico

Science, Sentience, And Animal Welfare, Robert C. Jones

Robert C. Jones, Ph.D.

I sketch briefly some of the more influential theories concerned with the moral status of nonhuman animals, highlighting their biological/physiological aspects. I then survey the most prominent empirical research on the physiological and cognitive capacities of nonhuman animals, focusing primarily on sentience, but looking also at a few other morally relevant capacities such as self-awareness, memory, and mindreading. Lastly, I discuss two examples of current animal welfare policy, namely, animals used in industrialized food production and in scientific research. I argue that even the most progressive current welfare policies lag behind, are ignorant of, or arbitrarily disregard the science ...


Écrire Et Lire Le Caribou Au Lieu De L’Achever, Jonathan Hope 2017 Université du Québec à Montréal

Écrire Et Lire Le Caribou Au Lieu De L’Achever, Jonathan Hope

The Goose

Dans un acte sans précédent de gestion de la faune, le gouvernement libéral du Québec a décidé de capturer les derniers membres d’une harde de caribous des bois en Abitibi et de les enfermer dans un zoo. Biologistes et écologistes ont exprimé, avec raison, leur inquiétude et leur colère; cette situation est aussi consternante d'une perspective littéraire.


The Mobile Monitoring Of Particulate Matter Through Wearable Sensors And Their Influence On Students' Environmental Attitudes, Joseph M. Abbate 2017 DePaul University

The Mobile Monitoring Of Particulate Matter Through Wearable Sensors And Their Influence On Students' Environmental Attitudes, Joseph M. Abbate

DePaul Discoveries

While we have a comprehensive understanding of air pollutants, and their spatiotemporal characteristics across global, and even regional, scales, we are quite limited in our capacity to monitor neighborhood-scale emissions. The mobile monitoring of air pollution is a growing field, prospectively filling in these gaps while personalizing air quality-based tools and risk assessment. In the present study, we developed wearable sensors for particulate matter (PM); and through a citizen science approach, students of partnering Chicago schools monitored PM concentrations throughout their commutes over a five-day period. While their recorded findings would be used to explore the relationship between PM concentrations ...


Enso Controls Interannual Fire Activity In Southeast Australia, Michela Mariani, Michael-Shawn Fletcher, Andrés Holz, Petter Nyman 2017 University of Melbourne

Enso Controls Interannual Fire Activity In Southeast Australia, Michela Mariani, Michael-Shawn Fletcher, Andrés Holz, Petter Nyman

Andrés Holz

El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is the main mode controlling the variability in the ocean-atmosphere system in the South Pacific. While the ENSO influence on rainfall regimes in the South Pacific is well documented, its role in driving spatiotemporal trends in fire activity in this region has not been rigorously investigated. This is particularly the case for the highly flammable and densely populated southeast Australian sector, where ENSO is a major control over climatic variability. Here we conduct the first region-wide analysis of how ENSO controls fire activity in southeast Australia. We identify a significant relationship between ENSO and both ...
