  • Treatment of winery wastewater by UV-A radiation

    Winery wastewater typically has a pH of 3-4, with COD (chemical oxygen demand) of 800-12800 mg/L, and Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) 1500-6000 mg/L depending on the vintage cycle. To date, there has been no general agreement on the most suitable method for the treatment of winery wastewater. On the other hand, Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) based on various techniques offer a promising ...

  • Photodamaged Chloroplasts are Targets of Cellular Garbage Disposal

    Autophagy, or "self eating," is the process cells use to consume unwanted intracellular structures such as damaged organelles, excess membranes, and unneeded proteins (Mizushima and Komatsu, 2011). Typically, the unwanted structure becomes surrounded by an autophagosomal membrane, which then fuses with the membrane of either the vacuole (yeast and plants) or the lysosome (animals) to deliver its ...

  • TiO2 as an effective nanocatalyst for photocatalytic degradation of humic acid in water environment

    Photocatalysis with TiO2 is used to remove humic acid (HA) in a water environment under UVA and UVC light. The effects of operating parameters, including light intensity, HA concentration, catalyst dose, and contact time are investigated at neutral pH conditions. Results show that HA degradation increases with increasing contact time and light intensity and decreases with increasing HA ...

  • Satellite-based estimation of actual evapotranspiration in the Buyuk Menderes Basin, Turkey

    Evapotranspiration (ET) is one of the most important components of the hydrological cycle, but it is often the most difficult variable to determine at basin scale. Traditionally, ET is estimated using point-based measurements collected at meteorological stations, but the non-spatial nature of these measurements often leads to significant errors when utilized at watershed ...
