Vinyl chloride (VC) and 1,4-dioxane (DX) are carcinogens and co-occurring groundwater pollutants. Co-contaminants often affect the ability of microorganisms to biodegrade individual constituents.
Potential transport pathways of asbestos fibers in groundwater from contaminated sites.
To prevent exposure of millions of people living near thousands of contaminated sites to asbestos, the sites are typically capped with soil and amendments, assuming asbestos mobility underground is ne
In the context of climate change, which accentuates the growing scarcity of fishery resources, the traditional knowledge of West African fishermen was examined in this research.
Figure showing the proportions of the global population under water stress per month in 2010
This Article supports SDGs 3 and 6 by assessing global human water stress for low to high environmental flow protection. The findings suggest that ensuring high ecological protection would put nearly half the world's population under water stress for at least 1 month per year, meaning important trade-offs are made when allocating limited water resources between direct human needs and the environment.
Proportion of daily kcal provided by each NOVA food group based on food purchases in Brazilian metropolitan areas, 1987–88 to 2017–18
This is an article on the environmental effects of ultra-processed foods in Brazil, in the context of SDGs 6, 12, and 13, focusing specifically on the temporal trends in greenhouse gas emissions, water footprint, and ecological footprint of food purchases in metropolitan areas.
Underneath the façade of supposedly bubbly girls, living daily lives in many parts of Nigeria lies the problem of lack of access to proper menstrual hygiene management tools or kits.
An interdisciplinary team of researchers and citizen scientists team up for assessing water quality in an iconic English river.
Figure showing the four main atmospheric water harvesting processes
Producing clean, fresh drinking water from atmospheric water vapor can play an important role in alleviating water scarcity in drought-prone regions of the world. This perspective explores the current trends and future outlook for atmospheric water harvesting technologies.
