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.

For additional details, please contact Elisabeth Treutlein.

    This study investigates the ability of vetiver grass for power generation and wastewater treatment in earthen pot–plant microbial fuel cells. Long-term system performance is investigated in terms of different influent concentrations, hydraulic retention times, and vetiver species. Optimum electricity generation is achieved at an influent COD concentration of 250 mg L−1 while treatment ability is promising for all tested strengths.

    The risk of a chemical warfare agents in terrorist attacks emphasizes the need to gain details regarding its fate on environmental surfaces. The measurement of a temperature-and time-dependent volatilization rate of GB (Sarin) from various common matrices, using a laboratory-designed wind tunnel and SPE/GC analytical method, is discussed. The evaporation profiles exhibited different curves according to the matrix character.

  4. Proportion of Sewage Sludge to Soil Influences the Survival of Salmonella Dublin and Escherichia coli

    The persistence of pathogenic microorganisms co-introduced with sewage sludge, when exposed to varying proportions of sewage sludge to soil, is determined. Introduced microorganisms decline significantly over time, with greater quantities of soil generally instigating greater die-off, particularly in the cases of environmentally persistent Escherichia coli and Salmonella Dublin. However, this relationship is not directly proportionally related, as sludge/soil mixtures show greater declines than pure soil treatments.
