About this book

Water pollution is essentially an interdisciplinary field involving scientists and professionals with a wide range of expertise. It also transcends national borders as the contamination of water resources is a problem of global concern. This book contains most of the papers presented at the Seventh International Conference on the Modelling, Monitoring and Prevention of Water Pollution. Almost 50 contributions from distinguished scientists and practitioners are included and these present some of the latest results essential to understanding the nature of the problem and for proposing appropriate solutions. Individual papers are divided under the following headings: Lakes, Rivers and Wetlands; Coastal Areas and Seas; Groundwater and Aquifer Contamination; Wastewater Treatment and Re-Use of Water; Experimental and Laboratory Work; Surveying Techniques, Monitoring and Remote Sensing; Mathematical and Physical Modelling; and Agricultural Pollution.


Section 1 Lakes, rivers and wetlands: A model devoted to study the ecological restoration of fluvial habitats- a study case, first results; Development and verification of a new simulation tool for water quality prediction in the Ebro River; A 3D simulation of the lower trophic ecosystem in the Ise-Mikawa Bay estuary using a coupled physical and biological model; Effects of pollution on living organisms in the Sapucaia Stream, south Brazil; Oxygen/mixers system restores the quality of water body; Modeling the effect of soil amendments (composts) on water balance and water quality; Water quality of The Tula River related to the petroleum refining industry - accumulation factors and treatments Management of water resources and quality in tropical river catchments. Section 2 Coastal areas and seas: Nitrogen budget at two artificial tidal flats along the coastal area of Osaka Bay, Japan; Definition of seasonal phytoplankton events for analysis of long term data from coastal waters of the southern Baltic Sea with respect to the requirements of the European Water Framework Directive; Contamination of the Caspian Sea ecosystem with organic pollutants; Transport processes of suspended matter in the Gulf of Gaeta. Section 3 Groundwater and aquifer contamination: Geo(Anthropo)genic factors affecting the radioactivity in groundwaters from Guarani aquifer, Brazil; Assessment of the geochemical conditions for the release of arsenic, iron and copper into groundwater in the coastal aquifer at Yumigahama, western Japan; Modelling the risk assessment of groundwater pollution by leachates and landfill gases; Evaluation of high density oil dissolution in saturated porous media for petroleum hydrocarbons contaminated sites; Retardation of various nitroaromatic compounds in highly permeable aquifers; Enzyme assays for estimating first-order rate constants of 1,2-dichloroethane biodegradation in groundwater; Treatment of roadway drainage by sub-base course specimen prepared with charcoal derived from waste wood; Assessment of random events at river water intakes; Common myths and misconceptions about the behavior and impact of MTBE released from petroleum products; Modeling of the transport and fate of radioactive constituent in groundwater.
