In this study, a method of water leakage detection system was investigated using acoustic emission device, AQUA M 300D. It is used to pinpoint leakage sources for underground pipelines system. The leakage is detected by analyzing the feedback frequency, where leakage area produces higher frequency due to the vibration resulting from a high-pressure liquid that flows through the crevice. The method is successful to detect underground pipelines system leakage with 90% accuracy.

Lupine Publishers-Soil Science Open Access Journals

Before the advent of modern industry, nature had tangible additions in the composition of atmospheric water vapor natural evaporation from transpiration of plant and natural emissions, in particular, from the respiration of creatures, animal worlds. Every living being, every plant in its secretions, at the molecular level, in its secretions creates information about itself. It is known that in the exhalation of a living being in the moisture of breathing, in any secretions, information is contained. It is proved by the fact that animals determine their victims and the opposite sex by smells. Plants allocate their personal phytoncides.

A Mechanics-Based Procedure for Predicting Groundwater-Rise-Induced Slope Displacements: (OAJESS)- Lupine Publishers

A procedure for predicting cumulative slope displacements induced by groundwater table changes is proposed. The proposed procedure incorporates a back-calculation technique for the soil strength parameter based on the records of slope displacement and ground water table changes. The analytical tool for the back-calculation is a limit-equilibrium-based finite displacement method (FFDM) requiring force and moment equilibrium, displacement compatibility, and a hyperbolic shear stress-displacement constitutive law. The analyzed potential sliding mass is a statically determinate system, providing a closed-form solution for the displacement of the slope. Two well documented case histories of periodic rainfall-induced slope displacements are used to validate the proposed analytical procedures. The hyperbolic soil strength parameters back-calculated from the first event of slope displacement can be used as operational soil strength parameters for predicting subsequent slope displacements caused by rainfall-induced groundwater table elevation changes. The proposed method alleviates possible difficulties associated with the evaluation of soil strength using undisturbed soil sampling of colluviums in foothill areas. The proposed method requires little computer time in deriving useful information of slope displacement which cannot be achieved using conventional limit equilibrium methods or advanced numerical analyses. The proposed analytical procedure is valid only for simulating instantaneous sliding where time-dependent viscous (or creep) deformation is not dominant.

Evaluation of Host Associated Genetic Markers for Rapid PCR Based Identification of Fecal Contamination Sources in Water: (OAJESS)-Lupine Publishers

The water quality of many waterways in the state of Alabama, and in the nation as a whole, is deteriorating due to point and nonpoint source pollution from human and animal waste. Accurate identification of contamination sources is essential if we are to develop cost-effective pollution control strategies. The direct detection of host specific genetic markers by Polymerase Chain Reactions (PCR) has been widely used in identifying sources of fecal contamination in environmental waters. In this study, we conducted experiments to validate genetic markers associated with deer/elk, Canada goose, dog, and cattle for Microbial Source Tracking (MST) in Alabama. End point PCR was performed on 10 raw sewage samples and 133 fecal samples from nine animal species. Our results showed that CowM3, GFD (goose), and deer/elk associated markers have acceptable specificity and sensitivity, making them suitable for MST studies. However, the dog marker and one of the cattle markers (CowM2) exhibited cross reactions with other fecal samples. The performance of these host associated markers in environmental water was evaluated using both end point and quantitative PCR (qPCR). Human, goose, and dog markers were detected in several water samples by end point PCR; the human marker and CowM2 marker were also detected by qPCR. Samples collected after a significant rainfall event showed the highest frequency of genetic marker detection. Both human and Canada geese contributed to fecal pollution in samples from Parkerson Mill Creek.

The Role of Technology Transfer in Supporting Climate Change Adaptation the Avenue to Disaster Risk eduction in the Arid and Semiarid Zones : (OAJESS)-Lupine Publishers

No doubt that climatic development and related changes are not new, bur a worldwide phenomenon that never respected national boundaries. Their severe consequences and negative impacts have touched most world countries; melting glaciers, deadly typhoons, catastrophic hurricanes, brutal tornadoes, torrential rains, harsh drought, continuous heat waves heavier precipitation, frost, fluctuation of annual average temperatures, changing duration, shifting seasons and disastrous floods are just a few of the many forms of climate change consequences. There is no single world country that was not seriously devastated by economic, health, social and or environmental complications. All these shattering consequences have urged most countries around the globe to find mitigation measures, adaptation techniques and methods and put this goal as a top priority of international conferences and symposiums at the local, regional and international levels. The notion “Act locally and think globally” has become the main slogan for a collective action to ease the consequences of the climate change. Needless to say, that huge efforts in awareness raising, education, training, technology transfer and information use can make a big difference, which have immense potentials to mitigate the implications of climate change. It is in fact the only hope to face the negative impacts of climate change.
