Advanced Study on Iron Fertilization with Enhanced Phytoplankton Productivity under Minimal Sulfur Compounds and Grazing Control Analysis in HNLC Region

The current study quantified the importance of HNLC (high-nutrient, low-chlorophyll) regions and their grazing control with improved iron fertilization for climate change. Sulfur compounds (S) such as volcanic ash and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) in batch cultures confirmed the limitation of iron (Fe) for phytoplankton growth in HNLC regions, with a chemical sediment of Fe3S4 showing…

The Importance of Indigenous Technical Knowledge and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) in Sustainable Natural Resource Management around the Teso Community in Kenya

There is a rising recognition of the value of indigenous technical knowledge and the necessity of integrating it with current knowledge in order to resolve issues related to natural resource protection. However, there is a paucity of research that shows how the two types of knowledge systems can be successfully combined. This study describes a…

Study on Floral Diversity, Composition and Structure in the Kimbi Fungom National Park, North West Region, Cameroon

The degree to which living forms differ within the setting of a particular ecosystem, biome, or entire planet is referred to as ecological diversity. This includes all plant, animal, and microbe species, as well as the environment and ecological processes to which they belong. In comparison to other Cameroon national parks, the Kimbi Fungom National…

Recent Study of Some Geotechnical Properties of White and Colored Kaolin Clay in Iraq Western Desert

The geotechnical properties of white and coloured Kaolin rocks were investigated during this study. The presence of iron oxides (Fe2O3) on the geotechnical qualities of white and coloured kaolin rocks was investigated using an experimental programme. Because of the oxidation influences, white Kaolin clay has better geotechnical capabilities than coloured kaolin clay. The iron oxide…

Modeling of Heavy Metal (Ni, Mn, Co, Zn, Cu, Pb, and Fe) and PAH Content in Stormwater Sediments Based on Weather and Physico-Geographical Characteristics of the Catchment: An Advance Data-Mining Approach

The processes that determine the quality of sediment in drainage systems are dynamic and complicated. However, because these topics have not been widely examined in research studies, there is relatively little information available on the effects of both watershed characteristics and meteorological circumstances on sediment chemical properties. The amount of selected heavy metals (Ni, Mn,…

Exploring Enablers and Barriers to Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Management Technologies Adoption in the Kingdom of Bahrain: A Recent Study

Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) has been a global priority due to its negative impacts on the environment and human health if not adequately managed. MSW has been proven to be a resource on a global scale, and it has a significant potential in the field of conversion technologies. As a result, the goal of this…

Assessment of the Occurrence and Concentration of Heavy Metals in Spring Waters

The goal of this study was to determine the presence and amounts of heavy metals in spring waters and whether they were safe to drink. There were eight (8) heavy metals recorded (Mn, Cu, Pb, Fe, Zn, Cd, Cr, and Ni). Manganese, chromium, lead, iron, and cadmium levels were found to be beyond permitted levels,…

Farmers Extent of Adoption of Climate Resilient Agro-technologies: A Recent Study

Climate change is the world’s most critical environmental concern, posing substantial dangers to global development, particularly in poorer countries. Climate change has an impact on ecosystems, water resources, food, and health. Global warming is the most harmful effect of climate change. Several climate-resilient agro-technologies have been established under the National Innovations on Climate Resilient Agriculture…

Study on Land Use Activities and Their Effects on Soil Erosion on the Slopes of Kajulu Hills, Kisumu County, Kenya

Soil erosion is a natural occurrence, but human activities speed it up ten to forty times faster than natural events. Because soils build at a slower rate than they are destroyed, it calls for mitigation measures to reduce the consequences of erosion. In Kenya’s upland habitat, the Kajulu hills, a research was undertaken on land…
