Analysis of swale factors implicated in pollutant removal efficiency using a swale database

A database set up by collecting performance results and design characteristics from 59 swales reported in the literature may help to better understand swale systems and to optimize their design for improving pollutant removal.

Identification of Heavy Metal Compounds in Technogenically Transformed Soils Using Sequential Fractionation, XAFS Spectroscopy, and XRD Powder Diffraction

The transformation of technogenic Cu and Zn compounds in technogenically transformed soils (Spolic Technosols) with high and very high concentrations of metals formed at the site of a natural

Assessment of extraction methods for studying the fractional composition of Cu and Zn in uncontaminated and contaminated soils

This study is aimed at elucidating the fractionation of Cu and Zn in Haplic Chernozem and its alteration under the contamination to evaluate the extraction selectivity of different extractants and

Nutrient status and pollution levels in five areas around a manganese mine in southern China

Nutrient status and pollution levels are the main factors affecting soil restoration. The nutrient status and pollution levels in five areas, an unexplored mine area (UA), an explored mine area (EA),

Scientific Evidence behind the Ecosystem Services Provided by Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems

Urban green infrastructure such as sustainable urban drainage systems are potential providers of ecosystem services. This paper reviews the field studies that empirically verify the potential

Methods to determine the affinity of heavy metals for the chemically extracted carrier phases in soils

Increase in contamination in Spolic Technosols as compared to the index CHM, the value of the AHM-fraction of metals in the residue (except for cadmium) increased, and the share of Pb and Cu increases in the organic matter.

Green infrastructure performance in arid and semi-arid urban environments

ABSTRACT Urbanization can negatively affect residents’ health and wellbeing. Green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) is increasingly advocated as a win-win strategy for addressing multiple urban



Mineral surfaces and bioavailability of heavy metals: a molecular-scale perspective.

This work has used extremely intense x-rays from synchrotron sources and a structure-sensitive method known as x-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) spectroscopy to determine the molecular-level speciation of heavy metal and metalloid contaminants in various environmental settings.

Bioswales reduce contaminants associated with toxicity in urban storm water

The results demonstrate these systems effectively treat contaminated storm water associated with surface water toxicity but suggest that modifications of their construction may be required to treat some contaminant classes.

The pollutant removal performance of three separate stormwater biofiltration systems in two different climates was assessed and it was determined that volumetric reductions in runoff further improved pollutant Removal.

Influence of the sea rush Juncus maritimus on metal concentration and speciation in estuarine sediment colonized by the plant.

J. maritimus was shown to have potential for phytoextraction (or phytostabilization) of Cd, Cu, and Zn in estuarine environment, however, an eventual application of J. Maritimus for this purpose will require a periodic removal of the plants together with their own rhizosediment.
