Abstract Spring-thaw represents a significant source for nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from fertilized croplands in temperate regions. In this study, we present surface N2O fluxes, soil-profile N2O concentrations at 5, 15, 30 and 60 cm depths along with the abundance of nitrifiers and denitrifiers over the winter and spring-thaw periods in an arid, drip- fertigated cotton field, which had received spring application of 240 kg N ha−1 as urea alone (Urea), polymer-coated urea (ESN), and urea plus ...

Abstract Sand mining is a human activity that is increasing in inland waters and has profound effects on entire aquatic ecosystems. However, current knowledge of the effects of sand mining on freshwater lake ecosystems remains limited, especially for biotic communities. Here, we investigated the responses of macroinvertebrates to indiscriminate sand mining in a large shallow lake of China. Our results indicated that sand mining significantly increased the content of suspended particulate matter,...

Abstract Information on potentially harmful emerging and legacy chemicals is essential to understand the risks to the environment and inform regulatory actions. The objective of this study was to assess the occurrence, concentration, and distribution of emerging and legacy contaminants across a gradient of land-use intensity and determine the risk posed to aquatic ecosystems. The land-use intensity gradient considered was: background/undeveloped 1 was considered to indicate a high risk of advers...

Abstract Between June and November 2017, leachate samples were collected from 40 landfills across the Republic of Ireland. Concentrations of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), and hexabromocyclododecane (HBCDD) determined in these samples were within the range previously reported in other countries. Average concentrations of PFASs exceeded those of PBDEs and HBCDD; likely due to the higher water solubility of PFASs. Log-transformed concentrations of BDEs-4...

Abstract Antibiotics are among the most widely administered drugs in the growing animal food industry. Of all the antibiotics approved for agriculture, sulphonamides are of particular interest. Their spectrum of activity is broad, affecting gram-positive, gram-negative, and many protozoal organisms, and they have been used for the treatment of a wide variety of animals. Animal manure is one of primary sources of soil contamination by sulphonamides. As they have a low soil sorption potential and ...

Abstract Developing underwater superoleophobic filtration materials with robust stability and excellent anti-oil-fouling performance in harsh environments is desired for high efficiency oil/water separation. In this work, irregular hydrophilic graphene oxide (GO) was adopted as a coating material to modify oxidized copper mesh with desired hierarchical surface roughness and hydrophilic composition through a novel in situ copper ion induced crosslinking method. The combination of microscale coppe...

Abstract The complexity of seasonally and spatially variable environments, coupled with complex biological interactions, makes it difficult to pinpoint biological responses to specific environmental stressors, including chemical pollution. To disentangle causative factors and reveal biomarker responses, we applied biomarker-based multivariate approaches to 15 native populations of Mediterranean mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis in spring and autumn . In addition, we used a subset of these populat...

Abstract This study proposes a novel framework to accurately estimate water quality profiles in deep lakes based on parameters measured at the water surface, considering Boulder Basin of Lake Mead as a case study. Hourly-measured meteorological data were used to compute heat exchange between lake and atmosphere. Heat fluxes combined with every 6-hour measured water temperature, conductivity, and dissolved oxygen (DO) profiles, from the water surface to a depth of 100 m over a 48-month period, we...

Abstract A co-polymer (SPAA6) of 5-sulfoanthranilic acid (5SAA) and e-caprolactam was used to prepare membrane through nonsolvent induced phase separation (NIPS) method. The micro-structure of membrane was adjusted by small molecules to improve mechanic strength and performance, involving 7 commercial ionic surfactant and a self-synthesized one, S20. S20 showed the best compatibility with SPAA6, which converted spherical phase into network of strip-like units in micro-structure of membrane. Mean...
