For drops sessile on a solid surface, cross flowing air can drive drop oscillation or shedding, based on the balance and interaction of aerodynamic drag force (based on drop size/shape and air speed) and adhesion/capillary forces (based on surface tension and drop size/shape). Better...
Anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions are driving climate change. The largest sources of emitted carbon dioxide are coal and fossil fuel power plants. One proposed solution to mitigate emissions is to capture carbon dioxide from fossil fuel power plants and store it underground. This is the...
Antimony is naturally occurring in the environment. The assessment of human exposure to environmental antimony is limited. This research focuses on the determination of antimony in water, beverages, and fruit. First, we explored whether there is a correlation between arsenic and antimony in...
The development of rapid detection techniques to be applied at the point of use, has been gaining significant attention in the recent years. Rapid techniques are important and preferable methods in healthcare and environment sector due to the advantages they offer such as low-cost and reduced...
This study develops the water requirement factors for different thermo-chemical and biochemical biomass conversion pathways for production of biofuels and biopower. Twelve biomass conversion pathways based on six biomass feedstocks are assessed. For all these pathways integrated water and...
The presence of chlorine in the subcratonic lithospheric mantle (SCLM) has been evaluated by compiling the compositional data of fluid inclusions in fibrous diamonds. Chlorine associates with potassium, dissolving in water and forming a KCl-bearing brine with the Cl/(Cl+H2O) molar ratio of...
Experimental investigation on evaporation induced convection in water using laser based measurement techniquesDownload
Recent studies showed that evaporation of water can induce surface tension gradients along the water surface and ultimately lead to convection, known as Marangoni convection. This study was devoted to visualization and characterization of the evaporation-induced, surface-tension-driven convection...
Understanding peoples' preferences for resources that are not bought or sold in a market is a challenging and yet often inescapable undertaking for informing decisions regarding many environmental problems. This thesis presents three studies on how people make decisions involving environmental...
Following the economic theory of averting behaviour, this thesis examines preferences for drinking water in Canada. Probabilistic mortality risk perceptions and other perceived water quality measures are included in econometric models of choice, and assessed for their impact, and value. The...
Microbial pollution of water is one of the principal causes of life-threatening diarrheal diseases in the developing world. Ultraviolet (UV) light is increasingly recognized as a viable alternative for the disinfection of drinking water and wastewater in developed countries, but its feasibility...
