  1. 1. Solid Waste Landfills in an Arid Environment : Site Selection and Design

    Författare :Ali Chabuk; Jan Laue; Nadhir Al-Ansari; Sven Knutsson; Hussain M. Hussain; Roland Pusch; Rafid Alkhaddar; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Landfill; Arid Environment; Site selection; Design; Babylon; Iraq; Geoteknik; Soil Mechanics;

    Sammanfattning : Selecting landfill sites is considered a complicated task because its whole process is based upon several factors and restrictions. This study shows the present status of solid waste management, sources, collection personnel, machinery and equipment that are involved in the waste collection process, financing and financial management for the major cities of the Babylon Governorate in Iraq (Al-Hillah, Al-Qasim, Al-Mahawil, Al-Hashimiyah and Al-Musayiab).

    Sammanfattning : In many developing tropical countries, rapid urban growth leads to several problems, including increased thermal stress. This has negative consequences for people's health and well-being, and affects social and commercial outdoor activities negatively. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Applicability of Remote Sensing Techniques to Groundwater Exploration in Semi-Arid Hard Rock Terrain - A Systematic Approach

    Författare :Nils Kellgren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :groundwater exploration; hard rock; semi-arid; decision support; lineaments; GIS; remote sensing; borehole siting;

    Sammanfattning : Groundwater exploration in hard rock terrain involves complex decisions, attributable to a lack of reliable data and the heterogeneous nature of the geological environment. Targets for drilling of boreholes are commonly selected on the basis of knowledge, or perceptions, of groundwater occurrence in a specific area. LÄS MER
