summary: We tested how invasion of tropical riparian forests by way of an unique N-fixing tree (Falcataria moluccana) impacts organic-matter dynamics in a Hawaiian river via evaluating early levels of leaf-litter breakdown among the unique F. moluccana and local Metrosideros polymorpha bushes. We tested early decomposition phases due to low leaf-litter retention premiums (<20 d) that outcome from the flashy nature of tropical Pacific Island streams. Leaf breakdown premiums, fungal biomass, and invertebrate abundances have been forty, one hundred twenty, and 30% higher, respectively, for F. moluccana than M. polymorpha leaves. Leaf-litter breakdown was once principally due to the circulate move and to a lesser quantity fungal colonization. Invertebrates weren't an immense consider leaf-litter breakdown. preliminary tannin content material, leaf C∶N, and durability have been vital intrinsic elements inhibiting leaf breakdown and fungal colonization. Regression analyses among last N content material (%) and ash-free dry mass of leaf muddle published that the early levels of F. moluccana leaf-litter breakdown are a resource of N to streams invaded via F. moluccana and give a contribution a conservatively predicted 2.1 to 5.7% to the to be had overall dissolved N pool. Direct enter of F. moluccana leaf muddle impacts early levels of leaf-litter breakdown in tropical streams with low leaf-litter retention charges. Direct enter of leaf clutter additionally contributes slightly to N inputs, yet subsurface flows via N-rich soils of F. moluccana-invaded riparian forests most likely are a better resource

Stabilisation/Solidification Treatment and Remediation: Proceedings of the International Conference on Stabilisation/Solidification Treatment and Remediation, 12-13 April 2005, Cambridge, UK

Summary

Stabilisation/Solidification therapy and Remediation - Advances in S/S for Waste and infected Land includes 39 papers, summaries of the 4 keynote lectures and the seven nation of perform reviews provided on the overseas convention prepared by means of the EPSRC-funded community STARNET (Stabilisation/solidification therapy and remediation). a variety of issues with regards to the stabilization/solidification of waste and infected land are addressed below the next themes:

-Binders and technologies

-Testing, QA/QC and information documents

-Long-term functionality and environmental impact

-Case studies

-Stabilisation of untreated materials

-Beyond traditional stabilization/solidification

The convention used to be hung on 12-13 April 2005 in Cambridge, united kingdom.

For example, a log removal value of 2 is equal to a percent removal value of 99. 2 gives an example of the reason it is easier to display values in log form. Log values are also used for chlorine contact time (CT) calculations. The two values can be added together to provide a combined removal and inactivation measurement. 2 7 10 13 16 19 22 25 28 31 34 37 40 43 46 49 52 55 58 Log vs. percent removal. 3 Log removal calculation. Log removals are calculated by taking the log10 (log base 10) of the number of effluent counts divided by the number of influent counts for a given size range.

In these cases, the constant-head overflow weir may need to be shortened, or the flow through the particle counter reduced. Consult the particle counter owner’s manual before changing the flow rate through the particle counter, to determine the acceptable limits. The relation of flow rate to performance is discussed in Parts II and III of this book. Most of the other sampling locations, such as settling basins, clear-wells, and reservoirs, are kept at fairly constant levels. For these locations, set the constanthead overflow weir for enough overflow to allow for some variation.

Cryptosporidium and Giardia. To determine this removal efficiency, we must count the particles entering the filter and those exiting the filter. The relationship between these two values is usually referred to as the log removal or percent removal efficiency of the filter. E. LOG REMOVAL Removal efficiency is simply the ratio of particles exiting the filter to those entering the filter for a specified size range. This ratio may be expressed as a percentage, or logarithmically. The latter is known as log removal, the former as percent removal.
