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.

  1. Nitrogen Treatment Efficiency of a Large Onsite Wastewater System in Relation to Water Table Dynamics

    Groundwater levels and dissolved nitrogen concentrations are evaluated beneath a large onsite wastewater system. Concentrations of nitrogen in groundwater are greater during periods of high water tables relative to low water tables, and on the down-gradient side of the drainfield relative to the up-gradient side. Onsite systems should maximize the vertical separation from drainfield trenches to groundwater, and trenches should be oriented perpendicular to groundwater-flow direction to maximize dilution.

  3. Eggshell as a New Biosorbent for the Removal of Pharmaceuticals From Aqueous Solutions

    Version of Record online: 22 NOV 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/clen.201700082

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Waste chicken eggshell is used as novel biosorbent for the removal of five pharmaceuticals (dexamethasone, praziquantel, procaine, febantel, and tylosin) from aqueous solution. The sorption process is found to be highly dependent on initial pharmaceutical concentrations and sorption temperature, and follows a pseudo-second-order kinetic model.
