Influence of Soil Particle Size Distribution on Groundwater Quality around Industrial Areas of Oshodi-Lagos Nigeria

Authors: Bernadette U Ukah, Ogbonnaya Igwe and Oyem E Ubido

Abstract: Around industrial areas of Oshodi are differences in groundwater quality based on physical assessment. These industries claimed that their activities have no impact on the qualities of these ground waters. Hence the influence of particle size distribution on groundwater quality was evaluated. The combined techniques of geotechnical and physicochemical were used in the analysis of; twenty-eight groundwater and soil samples in the study area, as well as fourteen groundwater and soil samples from the control site.

Groundwater Evolutionary Processes and Quality Characterization: A Case of Olbanita Aquifer System, Lower Baringo Basin, Kenya Rift

Authors: Benjamin Sosi, Albert Getabu, Samson Maobe and Justus Barongo

Abstract: A hydro-geochemical relation has been hypothesized through the analyses of physico-chemical data of a fractured volcanic rock aquifer located in the Lower Baringo Basin, Kenyan Rift. Datasets included 15 individual metrics determined in forty-two dry and wet season water samples obtained from six boreholes in the area. Aquifer evolutionary theory was postulated using sequential Principal Component Analysis and Hierarchical Cluster Analysis. In order to eliminate effects of scale dimensionality

Neurocognitive Assessment of Ecuadorian Andean Children Living at High Altitude in the Cotopaxi Mountain Region

Authors: S Allen Counter, DMSc, PhD, Leo H Buchanan, PhD, Fernando Ortega, MD, MA, PhD, Anthony B Jacobs and Göran Laurell

Abstract: Previous studies have reported neurocognitive deficits in persons living at high altitudes. This study was conducted to assess the neurocognitive performance of children who have resided their entire lives at altitudes of 3500 to 4200 meters in the Ecuadorian Andes. Neurocognitive performance was assessed with the Raven Coloured Progressive Matrices (RCPM) and the Digit Span (DS), tests which are reported to have minimal cultural bias.

A Defunct Lead-Acid Battery Recycling May Lead Strong Soil Pollution: A Case of Study in Mexico

Authors: Rogelio Carrillo-Gonzalez, Alejandro Ruiz-Olivares, Ma del Carmen A Gonzalez-Chavez, Martha Reyes-Ramos and Javier Suarez-Espinos

Abstract: Inadequate waste management from the lead-acid battery recycling (LABR) industry can severely pollute the soil. This work aimed to assess heavy metal contamination of a defunct LABR site in Mexico. Total, DTPA-extractable, water-soluble metal concentrations and soil fractionation were analyzed. Speciation of Na and Pb was calculated by Geochemist's workbench 10 Software package based on soil solution analysis.

Shaft Lengths and Shaft Development Types in the Vadose Zone of the Bakony Region (Transdanubian Mountains, Hungary)

Authors: Márton Veress

Abstract: The potential and explored lengths of the shafts of the Bakony Region were studied. Shaft patterns were distinguished with the help of shaft maps and potential shaft lengths were calculated considering preforming geological structures and the thickness of the vadose zone. The average depth and average specific length of the explored shaft lengths were calculated in some areas of the Bakony Region.

Impacts of Soil Pollution on Air Quality under Nigerian Setting

Authors: Enetimi Idah Seiyaboh and Sylvester Chibueze Izah

Abstract: Soil pollution is majorly caused by human activities (viz: Agricultural practices, industrial activities and poor waste management) and natural effects such as flooding, acid rain, weathering processes. Soil pollution often cause soil barrenness, offensive odour etc. The resultant effect could impact on soil, air and water quality as well as human that reside or work close to the polluted area over a period of time depending on the physical nature of the pollutant as well as its concentration.
