Anammox (anaerobic ammonium oxidation) bacteria are capable of providing low-cost nitrogen removal for numerous types of wastewaters. However, low growth rates cause long startup-times and inhibition by oxygen and metabolic substrates necessitate close process control to maintain performance. Incorporation of Simultaneous Anammox and Denitrification (SAD) into constructed wetlands could provide...
This study identified some of the ways that multiethnic women describe their ethnic
identities, how they perceive ethnic-specific gender identities and what they think are
appropriate norms for, and effective outcomes of, communicative behavior. Twelve
multiethnic women described their ethnic identity names or labels, and ethnic-specific gender
identities; they also...
This biological assessment (BA) documents the potential effects of existing Forest Service (FS) Land and Resource Management Plans (LRMPs), or 'Forest Plans' and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Land Use Plans (LUPs) on the Canada Lynx (Lynx canadensis), hereafter referred to as the lynx. LRMPs and LUPs are collectively referred...
This report summarizes the outcomes of a
March 22-25, 2010, workshop in Seattle, Washington,
on the environmental effects of tidal energy development.
The workshop focused on building capabilities
to evaluate the environmental effects of tidal energy
from turbines placed in the water column throughout
the United States. However, it did...
A study was conducted to determine what effects the type of
pollutants, storage conditions, storage time, and method of sample
conditioning have on the reported weight of an air pollutant collected
by filtration. Samples were collected from a refuse dump, an arc
furnace smelting nickel ore, and a rotary kiln...
