  • Assessing methods for estimating roughness coefficient in a vegetated marsh area using Delft3D

    A Delft3D-FLOW model was used to simulate tidal flow in Davis pond marsh in Louisiana, USA. The study area is a freshwater marsh consisting of one main channel and floodplain. Vegetation-induced flow resistance greatly influences tidal flow dynamics in the marsh. This study evaluated eight approaches to estimate vegetation roughness, including two constant Manning's n values, four empirical ...

  • Monitoring the effectiveness of advanced sorption materials for removing selected metals from water

    There are a number of ways to remove heavy metals from water. Sorption on granular media based on iron oxides and hydroxides is currently the most used option. The experiment was carried out using sorption materials GEH, CFH 0818, CFH 12 and Bayoxide, which are primarily designed to remove arsenic from water. Four columns were prepared with an inner diameter of 4.4 cm for the purpose of the ...
