This study makes a first attempt at a detailed estimation of the background radioactivity level and its distribution at the Sinop nuclear power plant site. The activity concentration levels of 226Ra, 232Th, 40K and 137Cs radionuclides in soil samples collected from 88 locations around Sinop Province, Turkey, in November 2016, were measured using gamma spectrometry. The distributions of radionuclide levels obtained from the results were evaluated using a geostatistical method, and the estimated r...

In the last few years, several studies have investigated microplastics (MPs) in marine ecosystems, but data monitoring and assessing the occurrence in freshwater environments are still scarce. The present study aims to investigate the occurrence, distribution, and chemical composition of MP pollution in Vesijarvi lake and Pikku Vesijarvi pond close to the city of Lahti (Finland) in winter. Sediment, snow, and ice core samples were collected near the shore of these two aquatic systems. MPs were a...
Tree windbreaks are common features in high-traffic roadsides that mitigate air pollution, winds, and noise. The impact of tree barriers on the dispersal of lead in the soil was studied at highway roadsides located near Holon city, Israel. A discontinuous line of trees parallel to the highway separated the highway from agricultural fields. The line includes alternating trees and openings; thus, it was divided into two groups: one consists of the areas hidden by trees (windbreaks) and the other i...

Macroinvertebrates are without spinal cord living organisms that spend their main phases of metamorphosis in water; so, changing the ecological structure of their communities represents environmental health condition. The main purpose of this study was to identify the macroinvertebrate families as a biological indicator and, consequently, determining the water ecological quality in the Ghezel Ozan River, NW Iran. The sampling was conducted at 18 stations in autumn 2017. At the same time, dissolv...

Geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) projects in the USA are required to monitor groundwater quality for geochemical changes above the injection area that may be a result of CO2 or brine leakage from the storage reservoir. Should CO2 migrate into the groundwater around the compliance wells monitoring the shallower hydrologic units, each compliance parameter could react differently depending on its sensitivity to CO2. Statistically determined limits (SDLs) for detection of CO2 leakage into groundw...

The monitoring of metals in ambient air has been undertaken for over 40 years on a national basis in the UK. During this period, the UK pollution landscape has continued to evolve in terms of emission sources, and the measurement framework for metals in ambient air, the UK Heavy Metals Monitoring Network, has also been subject to significant configuration changes. Therefore, this work provides a timely review of more recent concentration trends in the context of current emission profiles. Overal...

The study was conducted to determine the habitat usage characteristics of the otter, which provides important information on the status of aquatic and coastal ecosystems. The Balikdami (Fish House) Wildlife Development Area, where the study was carried out, was registered in 1994 and was declared a natural site in 1998. The total area of the site is 1470 km2. In order to determine the habitat usage characteristics of the otter, photo traps were placed according to the assumed habitat characteris...

Environmental DNA (eDNA) has been used to detect the presence of various species in aquatic ecosystems, but its degradation by several environmental factors can influence the correct identification of aquatic organisms. The present study examined the effects of a pesticide, diazinon, on breakage of Cyprinus carpio eDNA. The specimens were exposed to 0 (control), 0.06, 0.1, and 1 ppm of diazinon for 9 days. Water samples were collected at three time points (3, 6, and 9 days postexposure, dpe), an...
Today, armed conflict affects some twenty countries, covering an area making up 11% of the surface area of the Earth. Any degradation of nature in these areas represents a harmful depletion of the world’s natural heritage. Despite this, environmental issues are neglected during these periods of conflict, considered secondary to the urgency of restoring peace and safeguarding human life. Yet their consequences are potentially severe. In these areas, it is future generations who will suffer the ef...

Sequestration of atmospheric carbon-dioxide in biospheric carbon (C) pools is a key strategy towards climate change mitigation. Soil is a huge C reservoir and its storage potential varies greatly with forest types. Therefore, in the present study, the soil organic carbon (SOC) storage pattern was assessed from 70 plots laid at three selected forest types comprising seven study sites at Kanyakumari Wildlife Sanctuary, Western Ghats, India: tropical dry deciduous (TDD I and TDD II), tropical semi-...
