Oti Wilberforce J. O. reports that concentration of heavy metals in the top and sub soils and in selected vegetables and fruits grown in Enyigba lead-zinc mine derelict was investigated using X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) spectrometric method. Samples of fruits and leaves of the plants collected from 2010 to 2012 were analyzed for arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd), chromium (Cr), copper (Cu), manganese (Mn), lead (Pb) and zinc (Zn) contents and their corresponding Pollution Indices (PI) and Bioaccumulation Factors (BAF) were evaluated.

The mean pH of the soil was 6.5 and the mean concentration... More →

Oti Wilberforce J.O. reports that samples of Cola Acuminata (Kolanut), Grracinia kola (bitter Kola) and Solanum melongena (garden egg), commonly used during ceremonies, were collected from Abakpa Market, Abakaliki, during festive period in April, 2010 and they were analyzed for total metal contents using Proton Induced X-Ray Emission (PIXE) Technique.

The results (in mg/Kg) revealed the range Pb (0.88- 1.64); Cd (0.71-1.24); Zn (14.02-86.02); Cu (6.92-8.84); Mn (0.98-8.60); Co (2.21-8.48); Cr (0.86-2.41); Ni (18.22-

Rosborg, I., reports that iron is an important element for animals and humans, especially needed in hemoglobin for oxygen transport to the cells. Iron is mainly lost through cell defoliation and desquamation of skin cells, but in very small amounts.

Hundreds of cows and calves died after ample and bloody diarrhea, followed by loss of appetite and weight, apathy and paralysis on a Swedish farm. Water analysis of the drilled well indicated water rich in health bringing minerals such as calcium, magnesium and bicarbonate. However, iron concentration was elevated, 1.3 mg/L. Autopsy of ...

Ismail, M.T., et al., report that water desalination processes have contributed to a better standard of living in a number of countries during the second half of the 20th century, following an increase in water demand for drinking purposes as well as industrial and agricultural uses. Desalination process produces two streams of water, one is the product fresh water, and the other is concentrate water containing salts and any un-reacted pretreatment chemicals (Brine). Brine is considered to be one of the main environmental aspects that affect the surrounding environment during disposal. There a... More →

Mohamed A. El-Sadek reports that the present work deals with the measurement of concentrations and distributions of natural radionuclide X-ray activities, produced by 40K, 226Ra, 238U and 232Th, in coastal soils of Koam Mashaal area, Northern Egypt. Besides, the radiation doses that would be delivered to living beings from such soils were calculated. Moreover, external and internal hazard indices, radium equivalents, and annual activities were computed. For this purpose, a total of 57 field samples were collected from the surface till a depth of 50 cm.

These samples were analysed u... More →

Area. Each sample was replicated three times.

The levels of heavy metals in the samples collected were determined using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS) Unicam 919 model. The concentrations of he... More →

SOTI make images of heat. Image are made with your smartphone camera by taking visible light reflecting off the objects you want to image, and then that light comes into a lens, it is focused on a sensor, and an image is delivered. SOTI do the same thing with heat coming from the object. We have been thermal imaging for close to 25 years, since the first solid-state thermal imagers were introduced. You might wonder how do you focus heat? What kind of sensor detects heat? How do you display heat? All good questions.

Just as in any science or technology, there are armies of brilli... More →

Anthony Pietrangelo, chief nuclear officer at the Nuclear Energy Institute, reports that Entergy and NRC experts are continuing to monitor and analyze the cause of a leak of low-level radioactive tritium into the subsurface at the Indian Point Energy Center. Entergy communicated the event as part of the industry groundwater initiative, which was established in 2006 to communicate such releases to federal and state government officials and other stakeholders.

Given that the levels of tritium will change with the migration of the groundwater below the facility, it is appropriate that ... More →

Tanner Clinch, of the Casa Grande Dispatch, AZ, reports that a State of Arizona geology official says the valley around Eloy is 20 feet lower elevation than it was around 50 years ago. The Arizona Geological Survey has just revised its earth fissure monitoring maps for southern Arizona with six new maps that detail these geological hazards throughout the area.

The maps include study areas east of Picacho Peak that have dozens of reported fissures. The first fissures in southern Arizona appeared near Eloy in 1927 and are thought to be caused by depleting (over pumping?) groundwater a... More →

Dr. James Conca opines that just weeks after the Obama Administration scored a victory in its Clean Power Plan, the Supreme Court on Tuesday pushed back by temporarily blocking implementation of the Plan until lower court rulings are complete, which may take years.

The EPA Clean Power Plan was issued last year as an effort to combat global warming by regulating emissions from existing power plants. Natural gas, renewables, nuclear and efficiency were winners to different degrees, but coal was definitely the loser. The Plan goal is to cut emissions from existing power plants by a th... More →
