M.I. Rumaling; F.P. Chee; H.W.J. Chang; C.M. Payus; S.K. Kong; J. Dayou; J. Sentian

Volume 8, Issue 1 , January 2022, , Pages 27-44


  BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Air quality in some developing countries is dominated by particulate matter, especially those with size 10 micrometers and smaller or PM10. They can be inhaled and sometimes can get deep into lungs; some may even get into bloodstream and cause serious health problems. Therefore, ...  Read More

Linking the past, present and future scenarios of soil erosion modeling in a river basin

C. Loukrakpam; B. Oinam

Volume 7, Issue 3 , July 2021, , Pages 457-472


  BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Soil erosion is considered one of the major indicators of soil degradation in our environment. Extensive soil erosion process leads to erosion of nutrients in the topsoil and decreases in fertility and hence productivity. Moreover, creeping erosion leads to landslides in the ...  Read More

Artificial neural network forecast application for fine particulate matter concentration using meteorological data

M. Memarianfard; A.M. Hatami; M. Memarianfard

Volume 3, Issue 3 , September 2017, , Pages 333-340


  Most parts of the urban areas are faced with the problem of floating fine particulate matter. Therefore, it is crucial to estimate the amounts of fine particulate matter concentrations through the urban atmosphere. In this research, an artificial neural network technique was utilized to model the PM2.5 ...  Read More
