    Artificial thermal mixing of the water column is a common method of addressing water quality problems with the most popular method of destratification being the bubble curtain. The air or oxygen distribution along submerged multiport diffusers is based on similar basic principles as those of...

    This section offers news briefs related to science. According to a study by Balaji Rajagopalan of the University of Colorado in Boulder, there is a 50% chance that the giant reservoirs on the Colorado river will be empty by mid-century. The American Meteorological Society has endorsed research...

    A series of climate problems that are associated with global warming have been paid attention by worldwide nations and CCS technology (CO2 capture and storage) just appeared and developed under this background. It contains the storage of CO2 in saline formation, unminerable coal layer(CO2-ECBM),...

    Greenhouse gas budgets quantified via land-surface eddy covariance (EC) flux sites differ significantly from those obtained via inverse modeling. A possible reason for the discrepancy between methods may be our gap in quantitative knowledge of methane (CH4) fluxes. In this study we carried out...
