Comparison of IMS-Free and IMS Real-Time PCR Detection of Giardia lamblia from Surface Water
© PSP - Parlar Scientific Publications (12/2010)
Giardia lamblia is one of the most important waterborne pathogenic protozoa. Its occurrence in source and drinking water threatens human health seriously. In this study, four quantitative real-time PCR protocols involving Envirochek filtration, flat membrane filtration, immunomagnetic separation (IMS) and IMS-free separation to detect G. lamblia from surface water were compared.

Self-cleaning data logger measurements of long-term (2002 to 2006) variation in chlorophyll a concentration in the Uwa Sea, southwestern Japan

We monitored long-term variation (January 2002 to November 2007) in chlorophyll a concentrations at a pearl oyster aquaculture facility in the Uwa Sea, southwestern Japan using a self-cleaning data logger. The logger enabled continuous measurements at 10 min intervals. Such high measurement frequency is not possible using previous methods, e.g., remote sensing of satellite ocean color or spectrophotometry.

An integrated modeling procedure for thermal discharges into coastal waters
© Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (6/2009)
An integrated modeling procedure is presented for the calculation of the hydrodynamics and the excess temperature of coastal waters, during the discharge of cooling waters from power stations. The procedure, which consists of five steps, involves the use of two models.

Interdisciplinary Modeling Support to the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Project (CERP)

The coastal seas around Florida Bay, site of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Project (CERP) exhibit complex dynamics resulting from the interaction with the Loop Current/Florida Current system and the frontal eddies that interact with the complex reef topography.

Modeling Nestos River plume dynamics – Validation with field observations

A first attempt to simulate Nestos River plume using the ELCOM model is presented in this work. The model was tested under three different discharge stages (high, moderate and low) and under various meteorological conditions.

An approach for sustainable management of the Balikligol lakes, Turkey
© Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (6/2009)
The Balikligol Lakes in Sanliurfa, Turkey (Lake Ayn-i Zeliha and Lake Halil-ur Rahman) are freshwater lakes, which possess not only environmental value but also touristic value due to their natural aquarium look and their historical and sacred status in the past and present. From time to time, fish deaths have been encountered in these lakes. Deteriorating water quality could harm the health of the fishes in the water. Therefore, the water quality at both of the lakes needs to be monitored. The pollution at the lakes exceeding the acceptable levels endangers the sustainable management of the living creatures.

Sorption kinetics of PAH by using various sorbents
© Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (6/2009)
Polycyclic aromatic hyrocarbons (PAH), which are a large group of organic compounds with two or more fused rings, are an important threat to the environment. They occur in the aquatic environment as the result of oil spills, ship traffic, pyrolytic processes, domestic and industrial wastewater discharges.

The impact of mining activities in the quality of coastal sea waters
© Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (6/2009)
The quality of coastal sea waters downstream of a major mixed sulphide mining and milling industrial facility located in North-Aegean Sea of Greece was examined. The factors influencing the quality of coastal waters are the natural mineralization, the remains of past mining activities, the washout phenomena following precipitation events and the discharge of the treated mine waters.

Assessment of water quality monitoring data in lake Kastoria, Western Macedonia, Greece
© Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (6/2009)
Lake Kastoria is a very important aquatic ecosystem, situated in the Region of Western Macedonia, Greece. A six years monthly monitoring program (2002-2008) in five Sampling Stations in the Lake area is operating by the Municipality of Kastoria.

Evaluation of the trophic state of Ziros lake, NW Greece
© Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (6/2009)
Lake eutrophication has been a major problem for decades. It involves a change in lake status from a macrophyte-dominated clear water state to a phytoplankton-dominated turbid state, with detrimental effects to the ecosystem. The eutrophication process in lakes can be evaluated by determining the limiting nutrients and by calculating trophic state indices.
