The vertical distribution of the reservoir water temperature depends on the scale of the reservoir, regulation manners, as well as the hydrological and geological conditions near reservoir areas. Based on water temperature observation from three different regulation reservoirs, this paper analyses the vertical distribution of these reservoirs water temperature. The preliminary conclusions are: for multi-annual regulation reservoirs, the upper zones usually have stable temperature stratification structures, while the lower zones have constant low temperature; for annual regulation reservoirs, water temperature distribution changes with depth; for the daily regulation reservoirs with low water depths present mixed vertical distributions of water temperature. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

Atmospheric environment quality worsening is a substantial threat to public health worldwide, and in many places, air pollution due to the intensification of the human activity is increasing dramatically. However, no studies have been investigated the integration of vulnerability assessment and atmospheric environment driven by human impacts. The objective of this study was to identify and prioritize the undesirable environmental changes as an early warning system for environment managers and decision makers in term of human, atmospheric environment, and social economic elements. We conduct a vulnerability assessment method of atmospheric environment associated with human impact, this method integrates spatial context of Geographic Information System (GIS) tool, multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) method, ordered weighted averaging (OWA) operators under the Exposure-Sensitivity- Adaptive Capacity (ESA) framework. Decision makers can find out relevant vulnerability assessment results with different vulnerable attitudes. In the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei (BTH) region, China, we further applied this developed method and proved it to be reliable and consistent with the China Environmental Status Bulletin. Results indicate that the vulnerability of atmospheric environment in the BTH region is not optimistic, and environment managers should do more about air pollution. Thus, the most appropriate strategic decision and development program of city or state can be picked out assisting by the vulnerable results. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.

When a reservoir is built, it will change the hydraulic features of the natural river, and cause thermal stratification which has significantly influence on the reservoir area and downstream ecological environment. Through analysis of the temporal and spatial variations of the observed temperature in terms of the prototype temperature observations in Ertan reservoir, the preliminary conclusions can be gained as follows: the water temperature distribution in Ertan reservoir is basically represented as isothermal in the same depth plane, and as stratifies along water depth. The great monthly variations of water-temperature in the reservoir are affected by the air temperature obviously. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

Accompanied by the establishment of environmental impact assessment law and the development and improvement of construction industry information in nearly a decade, network Forum has become an important information resource platform and information exchange manner for EIA workers. The China Environmental Impact Assessment Forum, which is hosted by the Appraisal Center for Environmental and Engineering of Ministry of Environmental Protection, is a professional forum focused on environmental impact assessment. It has more than 17,000 professional members in China, and has become one of the most influential EIA professional forums. In addition to the general technical forum features, the China EIA Forum also has its own characteristics in its content and form. This paper will discuss the content setting, technical characteristics and information resources utilization of the EIA Forum, combine with the role of the EIA Forum in construction and development of the EIA industry information. Then, we propose the future development orientation of the EIA Forum, and the major development tasks and work contents. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

Based on the requirements of Air Clean guidelines (VDI3784 and VDI3945) in German for cooling tower plume rise and dispersion model, a comparative analysis of atmospheric environmental impact of the cooling tower exhaust for different parameters. Parameters includes different source emission parameters and ambient humidity parameters. Then, analysis of the impact factors of plume rising height and the ground concentration according to the emission parameters. The results show that the most influential parameters are temperature and gas flow rate, relatively, the flue gas relative humidity and liquid water content has less influence in the rising height. Therefore, the increase of flue gas flow rate will significantly strengthen the dispersion of pollutants in the air. The flue gas humidity and liquid water have a certain influence on the dispersion of pollutants, but the effect is not so significant. The increase of flue gas humidity and liquid water content is not conducive to the dispersion of pollutants, therefore the surface concentration will only increase slightly. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

In a seawater environment, the particle size of sediment and salinity play an important role in the adsorption behaviors of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) on sediment. In this study, batch adsorption experiments were carried out with the sediments from the Yellow River Delta (YRD) to explore the effect of particle size and salinity on the adsorption behaviors of phenanthrene (Phe), fluoranthene (Fla), and pyrene (Pyr). Adsorption isotherms of PAHs on different-sized sediments can be described by a Freundlich model with the correlation coefficients ranging from 0.96 to 0.99. The adsorption capacity of PAHs was in reverse proportion to the particle size of the sediments and in direct proportion to salinity. The sediments with smaller particle size possessed higher content of aromatic and fat components, which had strong adsorption capacity toward PAHs. Salinity influenced the adsorption behaviors of PAHs by changing the solubility of PAHs and the physicochemical properties of the sediments. The salting-out constants of Phe, Fla, and Pyr were in the range of 0.292 to 0.296, 0.230 to 0.289, and 0.293 to 0.307 l/mol, respectively. These research findings are of importance to an assessment of the fate and transport of PAHs in seawater-sediment systems. © 2015, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
