  • Wastewater containing Cr(VI) treatment using solar tubular reactor

    The hexavalent chromium, Cr(VI), which is generated in the electroplating process, is toxic to most organisms and potentially harmful to human health. The method generally used for remediation of wastewater containing Cr(VI) employs chemicals with high toxicity. This work proposes an alternative technology for the treatment of these wastewaters, based on photochemical reduction of Cr(VI) by ...

  • Helplessly exposed to nature? How lightning storms can be measured

    Each day, there occur about 1,000 thunderstorms with 4-10 million lightning bolts worldwide. In average, 700 people per year are hit by such light discharges, of which 75% of the hits result in long-term damages. Between three and seven cases end fatal. The risk is particularly high in the open field and is fortunately decreasing. The reason for this is that we stay more often inside in cars and ...

  • Dual Telemetry with GOES

    Make GOES more effective and reliable with a secondary telemetry option. GOES, for all it’s no-cost, reliable virtues, has some drawbacks. First, it’s a one-way transmission—there’s no way of sending any data to your station. This means there’s no way to reprogram a data logger or reboot a stuck data logger or purge a bubbler without (an unplanned) visit to the site. ...

  • Messing with the monsoon: Study: Manmade aerosols can alter rainfall in the world’s most populous region

    Original story at MIT  On the Indian subcontinent, the widespread burning of firewood, coal, agricultural waste, and biomass for energy disperses black carbon particulates into the atmosphere. These manmade aerosols not only pollute the air, but also form an “atmospheric brown cloud” that’s disrupting the local ...

  • Comparative investigation of artificial neural network learning algorithms for modeling solar still production

    Three artificial neural network learning algorithms were utilized to forecast the productivity (MD) of a solar still operating in a hyper-arid environment. The learning algorithms were the Levenberg–Marquardt (LM), the conjugate gradient backpropagation with Fletcher–Reeves restarts, and the resilient backpropagation. The Julian day, ambient air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, ...

  • Q&A: Patrick Wagnon on glaciers and climate change

    Patrick Wagnon is a glaciologist at the Institute of Research for Development in France, and a visiting scientist at the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development in Kathmandu, Nepal. As a global ‘glacier chaser’, he has summited some of the highest mountains in the world, including the 8,516 metre Lhotse in the Himalayas. In 2001, Wagnon and his fellow glaciologist ...

  • Onsite Meteorological Data - Everything You Need To Know

    Most AERMOD dispersion modeling is conducted using meteorological data from a nearby airport.  As long as the airport is reasonably representative of your source location, there is nothing wrong with that: airports are often a source of high quality data and located near major population centers and thus, major air pollution sources.   ...

  • Bright future of solar lighting

    Hybrid solar powered lighting (HSL) isn't anything like solar light based power that changes over daylight into power. Through the utilization of optical strands, HSL catches daylight, diverting it and funneling daylight into a building. At the point when there is practically no daylight, these installations use power with the goal that consistent lighting is accomplished. Gatherer ...

  • Interpretation of statistics of lake ice time series for climate variability

    Lake ice time series consist of the dates of freezing and ice break-up for the ice phenology, and ice coverage and ice thicknesses for the severity of ice seasons. This work analyses the physical interpretation of the statistics of lake ice time series illustrated by available data. The results provide tools to understand variations in the past lake ice seasons and to make projections into the ...

  • The Burning Facts About Solar

    Did you know that solar Energy comes in different forms?  As we all know, the development of solar energy is important because of its great contribution to our electricity sources. We might even think that it is just a simple development that deals about replacing and becoming one of the alternatives for our electricity sources that we can find. When talking about the development of solar ...

  • Calibration of selected pyranometers and satellite derived solar radiation in Puerto Rico

    Knowledge of solar radiation at the ground surface is valuable for many disciplines. In this study, ground–based sensors at Fortuna and Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, were used to calibrate daily–integrated satellite–derived solar radiation. The calibration equations yielded R² values of 0.88 and 0.83 at Fortuna and Mayaguez, respectively. A regression equation was also derived ...
