The present study was conducted to investigate the effects of different forms of soil acidities on microbial biomass C, ergosterol content, microbial metabolic quotient, microbial respiration quotient, and fluorescein diacetate-hydrolyzing activity of some tea-growing soils of India. Total potential and exchangeable acidity and extractable and exchangeable(More)
This paper utilizes the application of Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) and Genetic Algorithm (GA) techniques to find the most appropriate locations of Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) with optimum cost of generation for loadability limit and minimum active power loss, while satisfying the power system constraints. Two objective functions are taken as(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the potential harmful effects of novaluron on soil microbiological parameters in clay loam alluvial soil (Typic udifluvent) and coastal saline soil (Typic endoaquept) under controlled laboratory tests. The applications of novaluron were made at or above the recommended rates, which includes field rate (FR), two times(More)
The future trend in the computing paradigm is marked by mobile computing based on mobile-client/server architecture connected by wireless communication network. However, the mobile computing systems have limitations because of the resource-thin mobile clients operating on battery power. The MDVM system allows the mobile clients to utilize memory and CPU(More)
The concentrations of ammonium NH4+, nitrate NO3-, and nitrite NO2- ions were recorded along with ammonia (NH(3)) emission from a fertilized rice field located in the Kwangju province in South Korea over a period of 4 months (June to October 2006). The highest magnitude of NH(3) flux was 20,754 microg m(-2) h(-1), while the average flux value over the(More)
O tolueno é um composto orgânico muito tóxico utilizado para a preparação de muitos outros compostos. A fotoxidação do tolueno em fase líquida foi realizada utilizando-se amostras policristalinas do TiO 2 dopado com óxidos de metais de transição, contendo diferentes fases de dióxido de titânio conhecidas como anatase, rutilo e a mistura de anatase e rutilo.(More)
This paper gives insight for the improvement of power transfer capability by analyzing and comparing several FACTS devices such as Static Var Compensator (SVC), Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM) and Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) in long transmission line. These devices have been used in different locations such as sending end, middle and(More)
Aqueous film-forming foams (AFFF) are used to extinguish hydrocarbon fuel fires. Certain AFFF products such as 3M Lightwater contain perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) as the active ingredient which is highly persistent in the environment and is thus globally prevalent. With thousands of tons of soils potentially contaminated with PFOS stockpiled at a number(More)
