The journal is an international medium for publication of original research on the total environment with emphasis on changescaused by human activities. It is concerned with changes in the natural levels and distribution of chemical elements and theircompounds that may affect the well-being of the living world, or represent a threat to human health. Papers in applied environmentalchemistry and environmental health sciences are encouraged. Any changes in the landscape and total environmentcaused by man's activities are suitable topics. The scope is multidisciplinary and international.
Waste water treatment plants fail to completely eliminate new chemical compounds
Deformities, feminisation and fall in reproductive capacity are some of the effects that living organisms can be afflicted by due to changes in the endocrine system caused by these compounds. A study conducted on the Basque ...
New water-tracing technology to help protect groundwater
UNSW Australia researchers have used new water-tracing technology in the Sydney Basin for the first time to determine how groundwater moves in the different layers of rock below the surface.
Setting ground rules for nanotechnology research
In two new studies, researchers from across the country spearheaded by Duke University faculty have begun to design the framework on which to build the emerging field of nanoinformatics.
Eat less meat, save the planet
To conserve the planet's ecosystems and their diverse plant and animal species, human populations should consume less meat, according to Florida International University researchers.
Study reveals need for better understanding of water use
A new study reveals a pressing need to better understand water use in America's rivers, with implications for drought-stricken regions of the country.
Artificial intelligence can improve radioactive particles' detection
Radioactive particles can be detected deeper in the ground, thanks to the application of artificial intelligence technology developed by University of Stirling researchers.
Monitoring phytoplankton growth in lakes from orbit
New research shows how satellite images can be used to improve water quality monitoring campaigns in lakes and provide new insights into local, transient biological processes such as algal blooms.
A single hair shows researchers what a bear has been eating
U.S. and Canadian researchers have found they can get a good idea of a grizzly bear's diet over several months by looking at a single hair. The technique, which measures residues of trace metals, can be a major tool in determining ...
Roadside air can be more charged than under a high-voltage power line
Despite community concerns about living under high-voltage power lines, a world-first QUT study reveals that there are far more charged particles beside busy roads.
Atmospheric release of BPA may reach nearby waterways
Water contamination by hormone-disrupting pollutants is threatening water quality around the world. Existing research has determined that harmful concentrations of Bisphenol-A (BPA), a chemical used in consumer products such ...
