Abstract Ecosystem water use efficiency (WUE), defined as the ratio between gross primary productivity (GPP) and evapotranspiration (ET), is an indicator of the tradeoff between carbon assimilation and water loss that is controlled by climate and ecosystem structure. However, how GPP and ET impact WUE remains poorly understood. In this study, we provide a global analysis of WUE trends from 1982 to 2011 using multi-model ensemble mean WUE values derived from seven process-based carbon cycle model...
Abstract The Greenlandic population has some of the highest levels of environmental persistent organic pollutants (POPs) globally. Studies have previously found POPs to be linked with disturbance of child development, immune function and reproductive abilities. We investigated the associations between serum POP levels of pregnant women in Greenland and their infant's birth weight, length, head circumference and gestational age (GA) at birth. Pregnant Greenlandic women (n = 504) were enrolled dur...

Abstract Current and historic pesticide use has potential to compromise e.g. drinking water sources due to both primary and secondary emission sources. Understanding the spatial and temporal dynamics of emissions might help inform management decisions. To explore this potential; water, sediment and soil samples were concurrently collected from the River Ugie, Scotland over four seasons. Occurrence and fate of nine pesticides including four historic-use pesticides (HUPs): simazine, atrazine, isop...

Abstract The application of multimedia fugacity models is useful to facilitate understanding of the behaviour of emerging contaminants during wastewater treatment, as well as after their release to the environment. In this paper, twenty-two fugacity modelling applications (reported over 1995–2019) describing the distribution of organic micropollutants in wastewater treatment plants and surface water bodies were analysed in terms of model application and modelling strategy. Disparities and simila...
Abstract In Romania, natural Norway spruce forests are spread across upper mountain slopes (1300–1800 m). They perform multiple functions, being especially recognised for their economic value. However, where planted forests extend beyond the spruce's naturally occurring areas, they are frequently exposed to deleterious environmental factors. In Romania, forest planning is based on typological studies that were carried out between 1950 and 1970, and the regulations are applied in a somewhat flexi...

Abstract Landfill leachate effluent obtained after semi-aerobic aged refuse biofilter (SAARB) treatment still contains various recalcitrant organics. In this study, a sequential coagulation and Fe0-O3/H2O2 process was developed for treating SAARB leachate. The effects in terms of degradation of recalcitrant organics and the related mechanisms due to the coagulation and Fe0-O3/H2O2 processes were systematically explored and discussed. The results indicated that polymerized ferric sulfate was the ...

Abstract Harmful algal blooms (HABs) have increased as a result of global climate and environmental changes, exerting increasing impacts on the aquatic ecosystem, coastal economy, and human health. Despite great research efforts, our understanding on the drivers of HABs is still limited in part because HAB species' physiology is difficult to probe in situ. Here, we used molecular ecological analyses to characterize a dinoflagellate bloom at Xiamen Harbor, China. Prorocentrum donghaiense was iden...

Abstract The removal of lead in water and disposal of tailings are important environmental issues that need to be addressed urgently. This work explored the feasibility of utilizing the carbonate-based tailings (CBT) for removing lead from the simulated wastewater with the aid of wet stirred ball milling (mechanical activation). Batch experiments were performed to evaluate the influences of various experimental parameters like dosage of CBT, milling balls addition and initial concentration of le...

Abstract Objectives Air pollution is a well-known burden for population health and health systems worldwide. Reduction in air pollution is associated with improvements in mortality and rates of respiratory, cardiovascular and other diseases. Though air quality is a problem globally, efforts to lower air pollutant concentrations are usually regional or local. In industrialized countries, most urban air pollution is caused by vehicles, suggesting reductions in traffic would result in reductions of...

Abstract Low temperature is a great challenge for the biological treatment of wastewater. In this study, the rapid start-up of aerobic granular biofilm (AGF) reactor was realized by adding micro-sized polyurethane (PU) sponges as matrices at 10 °C. The results showed that the granulation process of AGF was different from that of traditional aerobic granular sludge and biofilms, which was formed by using the sludge intercepted in PU matrix instead of sponge skeletons as granulation carriers. Duri...
