more Given the water stresses in South Africa and the Western Cape specifically, the heavy reliance on surface water resources for most of the potable and non-potable water supply, the natural aridity of the region and the decreasing water quality which will be exacerbated by climate change, it is evident that South Africa cannot afford to ignore the deteriorating state of aquatic ecosystems, making their rehabilitation an urgent necessity.
This study measured nutrient dynamics of uptake rates and cycling to geochemically assess river health and ecological integrity of the riparian ecosystem of the Eerste River in the Western Cape of South Africa.
Soil and water samples were collected from the Susaki area of Korinthos and analysed for heavy metals in order to evaluate their environmental impact.
The geology of the studied area includes ultrabasic rocks and Neogene and Quaternary...
more This paper aims to advance previous studies on the iron and manganese content in groundwater of Rrogozhina aquifer (western Albania) and to show the factors which control the content of both iron and manganese in groundwater of this aquifer.
Rrogozhina aquifer represents an important groundwater source of the country whose relevance was highly increased during recent years because of the demographic expansion in this region.
These rocks are interjected by fractures, faults, joints and unconformities at some of the sections. The Tertiary Imo Shale Formation, a lithofacies equivalent of marine Akata Formation (prolific source rock) in subsurface Niger Delta, requires proper evaluation of its hydrocarbon generative potentials to complement organic geochemical...

The section of the Awi Formation encountered in the mapped area consists of sequences of conglomerate at the base, coarse sandstones interbedded with Shale, overlain with mudstone and capped with siltstone at the top.
Other successive Formation includes the Mfamosing limestone, Ekenkpon shale, New Netim marl, and the Nkporo shale.
The Calabar Flank forms part of the Sothern Nigerian sedimentary basin.
Its origin is intimately associated with the development of the Benue rift system.
