Cover Figures

This year, we started to provide authors a platform to show figures or images at the front page of the journal. The cover changes every month. Should you have any images related to your article that you believe it might be appropriate for use on the cover of CLEAN – Soil, Air, Water, please email us your layout suggestions with a short description, the cover story.

All PDFs as well as the html versions of the published articles in an issue will show the cover page of this month. Articles will therefore gain high visibility. The Table of Contents section will also show the cover image along with the cover story, linking directly to the article.

Specifications: 18 cm × 19.5 cm H × B; 600 dpi minimum

Please submit your cover image after acceptance of your article.

    Constructed wetlands (CWs) are widely use for wastewater treatment; however, clogging is a common problem that can significantly influence the pollutants removal performances. Herein, it is demonstrated that the substrate configuration with the hydraulic conductivity of the substrate increasing from the surface to the bottom in CWs can significantly improve the pollutants removal by changing the microbial-community distribution.

    Didymosphenia geminata has emerged as a nuisance specimen in river systems around the world. Herein, the practical application of stalks isolated from this diatom is reported for the first time. The experiments proved that polysaccharide-based stalks can be used as a low-cost sorbent for the removal of harmful metal ions from industrial wastewater.

  5. TiO2 and ZnO Nanoparticles Toxicity in Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)

    ZnO and TiO2 are the most used commercial nanoparticles. Increasing usage of these nanoparticles may contaminate water resources, and cause them to enter the food chain and accumulate in living organisms. The effects of these nanoparticles on barley, one of the major crops cultivated around the world, are investigated. It is found that ZnO nanoparticles are more toxic to barley than TiO2.
