  • Water recycling in Western Australia: analysis of 2003–2009 water quality monitoring programme

    Water-recycling schemes have been in operation in Western Australia since 1960. As a requirement of the regulatory framework for wastewater reuse, periodic water quality monitoring has been implemented to demonstrate microbial compliance for the intended end-use. For this study, we originally planned to analyse the compliance of the 92 water recycling schemes in the database over a 7 year period ...

  • Transforming Large Databases into Critical Knowledge Using Data Mining - Three Case Studies in South Carolina and Georgia

    ABSTRACTData mining is an emerging field that addresses the issue of converting large databases into knowledge. Data mining methods come from different technical fields such as signal processing, statistics, and artificial intelligence. Data mining employs methods for maximizing the information content of data, determining which variables have the strongest relationships to problems of interest, ...

  • Spatial analysis of water quality using a combination of GIS and statistical software

    GIS-based spatial analysis was combined with statistical analysis to process time varying water quality data. A data model was employed to manage the spatio-temporal data. The spatial data engine of ArcSDE was used to access the database. A data relationship model was developed to perform data communication between GIS and the statistical software. Visual Basic was used to construct links between ...

  • Monitoring Strategies For Phytoplankton in The Baltic Sea Coastal Waters

    Phytoplankton monitoring in the Baltic Sea is to a large extent harmonised through the HELCOM COMBINE protocol. This ensures that the methods of sampling and analysis are quite similar and that data should be relatively comparable. There are differences in the spatial and temporal coverage of samples taken within the different monitoring programs. Moreover, within the national monitoring programs ...


  • Predicting water quantity and quality in China`s Taihu Basin

    Knowing the amount of water available and its quality is key to undertaking rational and sustainable exploitation and protection of water resources. Real-time monitoring of these parameters is indispensable, as is developing a decision-support system that can use this data to achieve effective management and protection of resources. China began investigating water resource decision support ...

  • Comparison of indoor air quality in restaurant kitchens in Tehran with ambient air quality

    Air pollution is a major environmental health problem, affecting developed and developing countries around the world. Although the indoor air database is weak due to the scarcity of monitoring results, these estimates indicate that a serious indoor air problem may exist in developing countries. In developed countries, pollutant concentrations indoors are similar to those outdoors, with the ratio ...
