      The analysis of F concentrations in leaves confirmed a significant pollution gradient with the highest fluoride content in samples collected in the vicinity of the emission source. E. rostrata showed the highest values of fluoride accumulated which is due to the foliar characteristic such as mass and area as well as a higher capacity of retention on leaf surfaces.

    2. Microbial Quality in Coastal Waters of Dardanelles in Relation to the Pollution Sources and Transport Pathways (pages 1320–1325)

      Cafer Turkmen, Onder Ayyildiz, Mehmet Akbulut and Hasan Kaya

      Total coliform, fecal coliform, and enterococci bacteria along with physicochemical parameters were measured at different sampling sites. Sediment resuspension could be the main transport pathway for the release of bacteria into water body during high precipitation events.

    3. Application of Dispersive Liquid–Liquid Microextraction Based on Solidification of Floating Organic Droplet Multi-residue Method for the Simultaneous Determination of Polychlorinated Biphenyls, Organochlorine, and Pyrethroid Pesticides in Aqueous Sample (pages 1326–1333)

      Mei Zuo, Jing Cheng, Guzalnur Matsadiq, Lu Liu, Man-Liang Li and Miao Zhang

      DLLME-SFO coupling with GC-ECD can be successfully applied to pre-concentration, separation, and detection of low levels of organic pollutant residues in environmental aqueous samples. The proposed method is simple, fast, accurate, inexpensive, and possesses great potential for the simultaneous determination of multi-residues with similar polarity at a low concentration levels.

    4. Variations in Phosphorus Speciation in Response to Simulated Riparian Zone Enhancement with Red Mud to Treat Reclaimed Water (pages 1334–1340)

      Jing Qin, Ping Liu and Gang Wu

      Version of Record online: 26 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/clen.201100633

      Red mud (RM) contains a large proportion of voids that are evenly distributed, shows a fine particle size, and has a high calcium content of about 26.62% of its weight. Addition of 2.5% RM to media contributed to a conversion of Al/Fe–P to Ca–P. RM could used in riparian zones as a novel and low cost material to enhance the removal of phosphorus from reclaimed water in China.

    5. Adsorption Characteristics of β-Ionone in Water on Granular Activated Carbon (pages 1341–1348)

      Jing Deng, Yi-Sheng Shao, Nai-Yun Gao, Shi-Qing Zhou and Xu-Hao Hu

      Version of Record online: 26 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/clen.201100579

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Four types of granular activated carbon for β-ionone adsorption in water were investigated. NOM could reduce adsorption of β-ionone to a certain extent and small molecular weight fractions (<1000 Da) exhibited a remarkably competitive effect on the adsorption of β-ionone.

    6. Adsorption of Two Taste and Odor Compounds IPMP and IBMP by Granular Activated Carbon in Water (pages 1349–1356)

      Na An, Hui-hui Xie, Nai-yun Gao, Yang Deng, Wen-hai Chu and Jin Jiang

      Version of Record online: 26 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/clen.201200040

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Promising results show that granular activated carbon (GAC) is able to achieve a high removal of taste and odor compounds within few hours. The treatment efficiency depends on the GAC dose and solution pH. GAC could be a new and effective material to deal with emerging T & O issues frequently occurring in drinking water resources.

    7. Surface Water Contamination by Uranium Mining/Milling Activities in Northern Guangdong Province, China (pages 1357–1363)

      Jin Wang, Juan Liu, Hongchun Li, Gang Song, Yongheng Chen, Tangfu Xiao, Jianying Qi and Li Zhu

      Version of Record online: 26 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/clen.201100512

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Results from this preliminary environmental assessment indicate that radionuclides and other non-radioactive metal concentrations in the U mining/milling discharged effluents and tailing seepages largely or moderately exceeded the drinking water safe limit given by the Chinese National Guideline. A potential risk exists for local ecosystem through using this U-polluted stream-water for irrigation, watering, and direct consumption.

    1. Effects of Soil Rhizosphere Aeration on the Root Growth and Water Absorption of Tomato (pages 1364–1371)

      Wen-Quan Niu, Zong-Xia Jia, Xuan Zhang and Hong-Bo Shao

      Version of Record online: 26 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/clen.201100417

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      This study shows that the effects of rhizosphere ventilation on root vitality reached a significant level, indicating that the effects of rhizosphere ventilation on tomato were significant. Rhizosphere ventilation was observed to improve the environment for root growth and promote root respiration to ensure the above-ground growth.

    2. Hazardous Heavy Metal Distribution in Dahuofang Catchment, Fushun, Liaoning, an Important Industry City in China: A Case Study (pages 1372–1375)

      Gang Wu, Ji-You Wu and Hong-Bo Shao

      Version of Record online: 26 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/clen.201000589

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The Dahuofang Reservoir provides drinking water as well as industrial and agricultural water which is located in the Liaoning Province, a heavy industrial area in China. The distribution of hazardous heavy metals is described in several types of soil and crops and some pragmatic suggestions for the remediation of heavy metals in contaminated soils are provided.

    1. Water-Saving Crop Planning Using Multiple Objective Chaos Particle Swarm Optimization for Sustainable Agricultural and Soil Resources Development (pages 1376–1384)

      Yubao Wang, Pute Wu, Xining Zhao and Jiming Jin

      Version of Record online: 26 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/clen.201100310

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      An optimization model for a water-saving planting structure with four target functions was built: maximum total net output, total grain yield, ecological benefits, and water productivity. It could be shown that MOPSO apparently had more horizontal lines than MOCPSO, indicating that MOPSO can more easily entangle with a partial extreme value. However, MOPSO is still not a fledged algorithm and needs to be further studied on its impact on optimization results for, e.g., times of chaos optimization, environmental factors, size of population, or dimension number of solution space.

    2. Modifying Transition Matrix to Evaluate Soil Quality: A Case Study in Karst Region in the West-Southern China (pages 1385–1391)

      Hui Shi and Hong-Bo Shao

      Version of Record online: 19 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/clen.201100072

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The transition matrix method by Niewczas and Witkowska-Walczak, was modified by using the air-dry and wet-sieved aggregate frequencies to establish the transition matrix and to obtain the stability index. With this new method more information of aggregate experiments could be analyzed and size aggregate characteristics could be obtained.

    3. Geochemical and Spatial Appraisal of Fluoride in the Soils of Indo-Gangetic Plains of India Using Multivariate Analysis (pages 1392–1400)

      The results of this study show that combining of multivariate analysis and soil chemistry may be an effective approach to study the soil geo-chemistry of fluoride. A regular monitoring of fluoride leaching through the soil matrix is suggested as well as preventing measures and also the use of various defluoridation techniques.

      Sebastian Menke, Anne Sennhenn, Jörg-H. Sachse, Elke Majewski, Bernhard Huchzermeyer and Thomas Rath

      Version of Record online: 10 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/clen.201100402

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Ten algae species were analyzed by a high throughput screening technology with disposable photo bioreactors comparing their growth in specific hypersaline industrial wastewater. D. salina, T. tetrathele, and N. salina were suitable algae. A feasible mass production in industrial hypersaline wastewater was possible.

    5. Decolourisation of Sugar Beet Molasses Vinasse by Ion Exchange (pages 1408–1414)

      Małgorzata Krzywonos and Aniceta Łapawa

      Version of Record online: 26 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/clen.201100491

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The novelty of this work lies in the use of conventional strongly alkaline ion-exchange resins, Wofatit ES and Dowex 2, for the decolourisation of sugar beet molasses vinasse. The greatest extent of colour removal (92%) was achieved using 5 g of Wofatit ES/100 mL of 25% vinasse with an initial pH of 10.
