Long term methane emissions from landfill sites are often predicted by first-order decay (FOD) models, in which the default coefficients of the methane generation potential and the methane generation rate given by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are usually used. However, previous studies have demonstrated the large uncertainty in these(More)
The light-addressable potentiometric sensor (LAPS) is a semiconductor-based chemical sensor with an electrolyte-insulator-semiconductor structure. The LAPS can have many measuring points integrated on the sensing surface, which are individually accessed by a light beam. By modifying the measuring points with different materials, a single sensor plate can be(More)
In the present work a double ion sensor based on a laser scanned semiconductor transducer (LSST) for the simultaneous determination of K(+)- and Ca(2+)-ions in solutions has been developed. Specially elaborated ion-sensitive membrane compositions based on valinomycin and calcium ionophore calcium bis[4-(1,1,3,3-tetramethylbutyl)phenyl] phosphate(More)
Japan was the first Asian country to introduce social insurance measures and it has expanded them during the last few decades. The first social insurance law was passed in 1922, dealing with worker’s health insurance, and it was followed by the National Health Insurance in 1938, Seamen’s Insurance in 1939, and Employees’ Pension Insurance in 1921. However,(More)
