Suggestions 4 research project in environmental engineering. specialization in water resources.?

We Answered:

You could do a head-water impact study based on historical water levels including rainfall, flooding impact, total area of marshlands wildlife, flood plain agriculture, water quality and turbidity. Depending on your time frame, chromatographic analysis of constituents of contamination or naturally occurring suspensions based on level, rainfall, flood control measures, surrounding land use (ag, industrial, residential, etc.)

2. Secondary sanitary treatment utilizing artificial cycling mashes has become popular in the US as a solution to high nitrates causing algael blooms. My own observation of these projects is that the TDS and heavy metals have not been completely addressed by the plant species in the marsh and the solids digestion and sludge de-watering. I believe that there is huge potential in further research in this area using natural methodology instead of manufactured filters.

Because NZ appears to be committed to a bio-friendly economy for soil and water quality, one of these projects would probably even make the wire news if it was to be instituted.

All the best.

I'm looking for idea for research project about utilizing the data mining technology in environmental studies

We Answered:

Look at the Natomas in California.
They are proof of the effects of mining on the environment. Changed, for ever, and not for the better.

2topics for environmental education case studies,and 1topic for a project.its urgent!?

1.) Climate Change
Variations in land- and sea-ice coverage and the melting or growth of glaciers occur in response to changes in temperature, sunshine, precipitation, and for sea-ice changes in wind. Since 1966 Northern Hemisphere snow cover maps have been produced by the United States using satellite imagery. Consistent with the surface and tropospheric temperature measurements is the decrease (by about 10%) in snow cover and extent since the late 1960s. There has been a widespread retreat of mountain glaciers in non-polar regions during the 20th century. Variations in sea-ice extent have also been reported, with spring and summer sea-ice extent in the Northern Hemisphere decreasing by between 10 an 15% since the 1950s. Considerable interest is now focusing on Antarctica, where regional warming, as predicted by climate models, has been more rapid than global warming as a whole. In recent years the summertime disintegration of the Larsen Sea Ice Shelf adjacent the Antarctic continent has been occurring on an unprecedented scale. In view of the rapidity at which it is taking place, such an event has been viewed as a possible signal of global warming.

2. The Enhanced Greenhouse Effect:
The overall state of the global climate is largely determined by balance between energy the Earth receives from the Sun and the heat which the Earth releases back to space, called the global energy balance. Many causes of climate change involve processes that alter the global energy balance. The enhanced greenhouse effect is a potential cause of climate change because the extra quantities of greenhouse gases put into the air by mankind trap more heat in the atmosphere. This upsets the global energy balance and causes a rise in global surface temperature. Although most scientists agree that global warming is the result of the enhanced greenhouse effect, natural processes can also upset the global energy balance in this way, causing similar rises in global temperature.

3. Desertification:
One of the impacts which global warming may have on the surface of the Earth is to exacerbate the worldwide problem of desertification. A decrease in the total amount of rainfall in arid and semi-arid areas could increase the total area of drylands worldwide, and thus the total amount of land potentially at risk from desertification.
Desertification was defined at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992 as "land degradation in arid, semi-arid and dry sub-humid areas resulting from various factors including climatic variations and human activities". Desertification involves the depletion of vegetation and soils. Land degradation occurs all over the world, but it is only referred to as desertification when it takes place in drylands. This is because these areas are especially prone to more permanent damage as different areas of degraded land spread and merge together to form desert-like conditions.

4.) Project Idea: --How are different soils affected by erosion? [You can make your own wind or water and evaluate the effects on soil. If you have access to a very cold freezer, you can look at the effects of freeze and thaw cycles.]

5.) The Driving Forces of Environmental Change: Humans
http://www.aag.org/HDGC/www/intro/units/…
Typology of Human Driving Forces:
What exactly are we talking about when we speak of human driving forces? What specific human activities have caused such rapid changes in the biosphere? The answer is subject to some debate, but for our purposes, the human driving forces of environmental change can be separated into three broad categories: population change, technological change, and socio-cultural and socio-economic organization.
--Population change:
Population at the global scale (and at the regional scale in certain areas) is increasing at an increasing rate and is accumulating in settlements that stress the landscape (urbanization).
--Technological change:
Acts of technological innovation have become increasingly divorced from their environmental impacts. Thus, in addition to societal benefits, technology often contributes to environmental change or deterioration.
--Socio-cultural and socio-economic organization:
Economic institutions and markets, political economy, political ecology, and political institutions all affect the relationships between humans and their environment.
