The river Dambovita, which crosses Bucharest city, is characterized by two superposed artificial riverbeds: the lower part, under Dambovita river floor, which is a channel containing sewage from the city and the upper part, which is cleaner and combines with the lower part when exiting Bucharest. This study aims to evaluate the anthropogenic impact...

... temperature, conductivity, ammonium content, turbidity and phosphorus as water moves closer to the Glina sampling point, coinciding with a drop in the concentration and saturation of dissolved oxygen, water pressure and nitrate content. In the context of increased conductivity and an accumulation of pollutants in the water, turbidity also rises (Fig. 4). The amount of organic and inorganic matter carried by water exhibited a sharp increase towards the final sampling point at Glina, from a value of less than 190mg/l in samples taken upstream all the way to 420mg/l downstream of Glina. The analyzed organic compounds, the amounts of phosphorus, nitrates and ammonium, were found to fall ...

In tropical estuaries, fish diversity varies spatially and temporally due to behavioral processes such as reproductive migrations, predator avoidance, and foraging, which are affected by water quality. Eutrophication is one of the main factors affecting water quality in estuaries. The objective of this study was to determine variation in fish assem...

Water is the lifeblood of the Earth, and coverage to water through river systems sustains the furthermost of possible life. Various factors such as quality, quantity, and timing of flow are responsible for the health of the river. The spectrum of river flow unpredictability is an ecologically crucial constituent in a river ecosystem.The ecological...

The western part of Lagos is the most impacted part of the lagoon due to high concentration of both humans and industries. Water and sediments of this part of the lagoon were studied in the month of September, 2010 to assess the level of the anthropogenic impacts. Sub-surface water and benthic samples were collected with a 1dm 3 water sampler and V...
