3. Role of estuarine natural flocculation process in removal of Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb and Zn

S. Hassani; A.R. Karbassi; M. Ardestani

Volume 3, Issue 2 , Spring 2017, , Pages 187-196

http://dx.doi.org/10.22034/gjesm.2017.03.02.007

Abstract
  The flocculation of dissolved heavy metals is a process which has an important effect on decreasing the concentration of the colloidal elements during estuarine mixing of river water and sea or ocean water. During this important process, a large amount of colloidal elements change into particles in ...  Read More

5. Origin and spatial distribution of metals in agricultural soils

Gh. A. Mohammadpour; A.R. Karbassi; A. Baghvand

Volume 2, Issue 2 , Spring 2016, , Pages 145-156

http://dx.doi.org/10.7508/gjesm.2016.02.005

Abstract
  Presence of toxic metals in agricultural soils can impose adverse health impact on consumers. The main purpose of this study was to determine spatial distribution of elements Fe, Sb, Mn in agriculture soils and crops of Hamedan Province in Iran. Soil samples (0-20 cm depth) were collected from an ...  Read More

6. Role of estuarine natural processes in removal of trace metals under emergency situations

A.R. Karbassi; S. Tajziehchi; N. Farhang Adib

Volume 2, Issue 1 , Winter 2016, , Pages 31-38

http://dx.doi.org/10.7508/gjesm.2016.01.004

Abstract
  Estuaries are well known for their potential in removing metal from fresh water to provide micro-nutrients to aquatic life. In the present investigation, we have tried to bring out the metal removal potential of estuaries during accidental spills. For this purpose artificial river water containing high ...  Read More

7. An investigation on heavy metals in soils around oil field area

A.R. Karbassi; S. Tajziehchi; S. Afshar

Volume 1, Issue 4 , Autumn 2015, , Pages 275-282

http://dx.doi.org/10.7508/gjesm.2015.04.002

Abstract
  Oil and pollutants resulting from its extraction and exploitation are considered as one of the serious problems for human health. Vast oil fields of Ahvaz City located in southern Iran are known as one of controversial subjects in contamination with heavy metals. In this study, oil fields' soils of Ahvaz ...  Read More

8. Environmental qualitative assessment of rivers sediments

A.R. Karbassi; M. Pazoki

Abstract
  In this study, the concentrations of heavy metals (Ca, Zn, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni) in thesediment of Shavoor River in Khuzestan Province in Iran has been investigated. After the library studies and field studies, six samples of water and sediment were taken from the river in order to evaluate heavy metal pollution ...  Read More

9. An investigation on role of salinity, pH and DO on heavy metals elimination throughout estuarial mixture

A.R. Karbassi; M. Heidari

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Winter 2015, , Pages 41-46

http://dx.doi.org/10.7508/gjesm.2015.01.004

Abstract
  One of the most paramount processes that play a considerable role in reducing the concentration of heavy metals during estuarine mixing is flocculation. Not only does such a process cause a huge percentage of metals to come into the particulate phase, but also it provides ample nutrients for the aquatic ...  Read More
