The hyporheic zone - a spatially fluctuating ecotone connecting surface water and groundwater - is considered to be highly reactive with regard to the attenuation of organic micropollutants. In the course of the presented study an undisturbed sediment core was taken from the infiltration zone of a bank filtration site in Berlin and operated under controlled(More)
The contamination of the aquatic environment with organic micropollutants, such as veterinary pharmaceuticals, has become an increasingly serious problem and has aroused attention in the course of the last decades. This study presents a screening for a series of veterinary antibiotics, potentially introduced by the application of liquid manure, in ground-(More)
Close to 43% of adults have difficulties reading and understanding printed materials. Given the fact that so many American adults have difficulty reading basic text, we were interested in looking at the readability levels of the marriage amendment ballots of the 2004 election. Results indicated, with the exception of two states, a mismatch between the(More)
  Owing to advanced analytical procedures an increasing number of organic micropollutants have been identified within the aquatic environment. Results from field investigations evidenced the attenuation of various organic micropollutants to be impacted by the predominant hydrochemical conditions. In the course of this study, column experiments were(More)
Deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) children who are acquiring spoken language need the same foundational skills to learn to read as hearing children. Researchers have found that phonological awareness, alphabetic knowledge, and vocabulary predict reading abilities in young deaf children with CIs and hard-of-hearing children with hearing aids These studies(More)
Several studies on waste- or drinking water treatment processes as well as on groundwater have recently shown that some pharmaceutical residues (PRs) are redox-sensitive. Hence, their (bio)degradation depends on the redox conditions prevalent in the aquifer. Groundwater, providing raw water for drinking water production, is often anoxic and aeration is a(More)
The Dissertation Advisory Committee and the student's Department Chair, as representatives of the faculty, certify that this dissertation has met all standards of excellence and scholarship as determined by the faculty. The Dean of the College of Education concurs. By presenting this dissertation as a partial fulfillment of the requirements for the advanced(More)
Since sorption is an essential process with regard to attenuation of organic pollutants during subsurface flow, information on the sorption properties of each pollutant are essential for assessing their environmental fate and transport behavior. In the present study, the sorption behavior of 20 wastewater originated organic micropollutants was assessed by(More)
