The monitoring carried out by the INCDPM team for sturgeon species during the period 2011-2016 showed that upstream migrations of the beluga specimens it is realizing in 98% on the Borcea branch and only 2% on the Old Danube (km 248-345) and in proportion of 96% on Borcea and 4% on the Old Danube in the case of the stellate sturgeon species. Given...

The present study focused its attention on understanding the fate and transport of nitrogen species in unsaturated soil overlying Bucharest, Cernica and Frumuşani considering also the influence of soil characteristics on these pollutants. The problem was approached at the laboratory scale employing soil columns experiments.

The hydrological constructions performed for Bastroe Channel may affect anadromous migratory fish, such as sturgeon. This paper aims to establish the possible environmental consequences in the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve and adjacent coastal zone, determined by the Bastroe project. A continuous sturgeon migration monitoring was performed in the...

This paper addresses the assessment of the Danube River water monitoring data obtained for the nutrient in the period 2013-2014 in order to achieve and/or maintain the environmental objectives of the Water Framework Directive (60/2000/CE). It has established the ecological status of the river for January-December period of each year in line with th...

The main objective is to analyze some physical-characteristics of the Șușița Catchment, such as climate, soil texture and land use type, having an impact in hydrological response of the catchment area. This analysis is useful in understanding the role of controlling factors in the hydrological processes taking place in the study area, such as sedim...

Heavy metals are considered dangerous contaminants due to the possibility of bioaccumulation and toxic effects on environment and human health. Six metals exhibiting a greater relevance to the aquatic ecosystem in terms of toxic effects (Cd, Cr, Cu, Zn, Ni and Pb) were analyzed from water samples collected monthly from ten sites, during May 2012-Ap...

As part of the integrated monitoring system, monitoring of the air quality is essential in areas where operating a cement factory, the atmosphere being the most common way of spreading pollutants derived from such industrial activity. To highlight the impact on air of the activities developed by the cement plant situated in the eastern part of Roma...

The topic of this paper is part of the current concerns to reduce the impact of pollutants on the aquatic environment by chemical treatment of wastewater in the context of sustainable development for improving quality of life. Suspended solids can lead to deposition of sludge and the occurrence of anaerobic fermentation with negative effects on the...

In the last decades, sturgeon species population decreased due to several factors, the most important ones being: habitats fragmentation caused by river bed rehabilitation works, irrational and excessive fishing and poaching phenomena which is extremely difficult to control. In order to gain a better understanding of sturgeon species migration on L...

Social profile analysis is a fundamental tool in development planning. Phenomena such as population growth, suburbanization, the high level of morbidity and social exclusion can cause serious problems for economic development, social welfare and quality of life. The development rhythm of modern society and the rate of exploitation of the resources...

Pollutants are differentially distributed between the biotic and abiotic compartments or between solid and liquid phases at abiotic level. Moreover, physical and chemical structure of the pollutant is important because it leads directly or indirectly to disruption of the ecosystem, and thus it contributes significantly to environmental pollution. T...

National legislation mention thresholds for total soil potentially toxic elements (PTE) contents only, but there has been a high interest in following the fate of mobile PTE lately, because total concentration is a poor indicator of their lability, which is directly connected to the environmental risk. The scientific literature amply demonstrated t...

The goal of this study was to assess the human exposure risk associated to heavy metal soil pollution. The studied samples were heavy metals polluted soils (Pb, Cd, Cu, Zn) with concentrations above the intervention limits, because of smelting activities. In order to assess human risk, CSOIL exposure model was used for calculating parameters like:...
