  • Surface runoff
    Surface runoff (also known as overland flow) is the flow of water that occurs when excess stormwater, meltwater, or other sources flows over the Earth's surface.
  • Total dissolved solids
    Total dissolved solids (TDS) is a measure of the combined content of all inorganic and organic substances contained in a liquid in molecular, ionized or micro-granular (colloidal sol) suspended form.
  • Environmental chemistry
    Environmental chemistry is the scientific study of the chemical and biochemical phenomena that occur in natural places.
  • Eutrophication
    Eutrophication (Greek: eutrophia (from eu "well" + trephein "nourish".); German: Eutrophie), or more precisely hypertrophication, is the depletion of oxygen in a water body, which kills aquatic animals.
  • Photodegradation
    Photo-degradation is the alteration of materials by light.
  • Soil contamination
    Soil contamination or soil pollution as part of land degradation is caused by the presence of xenobiotic (human-made) chemicals or other alteration in the natural soil environment.
  • Atmospheric chemistry
    Atmospheric chemistry is a branch of atmospheric science in which the chemistry of the Earth's atmosphere and that of other planets is studied.
  • Acid rain
    Acid rain is a rain or any other form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, meaning that it possesses elevated levels of hydrogen ions (low pH).
  • Kinetic PreProcessor
    The Kinetic PreProcessor (KPP) is an open-source software tool used in atmospheric chemistry.
  • Water splitting
    Water splitting is the general term for a chemical reaction in which water is separated into oxygen and hydrogen.
  • Pan Britannica Industries
    Pan Britannica Industries Ltd (PBI) was a small company which had 400 employees.
  • Autochem
    AutoChem is NASA release software that constitutes an automatic computer code generator and documenter for chemically reactive systems written by David Lary between 1993 and the present.
  • Freshwater environmental quality parameters
    Freshwater environmental quality parameters are the natural and man-made chemical, biological and microbiological characteristics of rivers, lakes and ground-waters, the ways they are measured and the ways that they change.
  • Anoxic event
    Oceanic anoxic events or anoxic events (anoxia conditions) refer to intervals in the Earth's past where portions of oceans become depleted in oxygen (O2) at depths over a large geographic area.
  • Environmental Chemistry (journal)
    Environmental Chemistry - Environmental problems, chemical approaches - is a peer-reviewed scientific journal publishing original research and review articles on all aspects of environmental chemistry.
  • Melainabacteria
    The name Melainabacteria is derived from the title of the "Greek nymph of dark waters" and is new phylum related to Cyanobacteria.
  • Microcystin
    Microcystins (or cyanoginosins) are a class of toxins produced by certain freshwater cyanobacteria; primarily Microcystis aeruginosa but also other Microcystis, as well as members of the Planktothrix, Anabaena, Oscillatoria and Nostoc genera.
  • Hydroxyl radical
    The hydroxyl radical, •OH, is the neutral form of the hydroxide ion (OH−).
  • SahysMod
    Application references :
  • SaltMod
    SaltMod is computer program for the prediction of the salinity of soil moisture, groundwater and drainage water, the depth of the watertable, and the drain discharge (hydrology) in irrigated agricultural lands, using different (geo)hydrologic conditions, varying water management options, including the use of ground water for irrigation, and several cropping rotation schedules.
  • Chemosphere (journal)
    Chemosphere is a peer-reviewed scientific journal, published since 1972 by Elsevier.
