Energies, Vol. 4, Pages 1258-1277: Tools for Small Hydropower Plant Resource Planning and Development: A Review of Technology and Applications

26-Aug-2011 | Petras Punys; Antanas Dumbrauskas; Algis Kvaraciejus; Gitana Vyciene, Energies, 2011

This paper reviews and compares software tools for the planning and design of small hydropower (SHP) plants. The main emphasis is on small scale hydropower resource assessment computer tools and methodologies for the development of SHP plants corresponding to a preliminary or prefeasibility study ...


Entropy, Vol. 13, Pages 1555-1583: Spectral Entropy in a Boundary-Layer Flow

26-Aug-2011 | LaVar King Isaacson, Entropy, 2011

This article presents a comparison of the entropy production in a laminar and transitional boundary layer flow with the spectral entropy produced in a region of instability induced by an imposed periodic disturbance. The objective of the study is exploratory in nature by computing a ...


Entropy, Vol. 13, Pages 1541-1554: Phase-Controlled Atom-Photon Entanglement in a Three-Level V-Type Atomic System via Spontaneously Generated Coherence

25-Aug-2011 | Mohammad Abazari; Ali Mortezapour; Mohammad Mahmoudi; Mostafa Sahrai, Entropy, 2011

We investigate the dynamical behavior of the atom-photon entanglement in a V-type three-level quantum system using the atomic reduced entropy. It is shown that an atom and photons are entangled at the steady-state; however disentanglement can also be achieved in an special condition. It is ...


IJERPH, Vol. 8, Pages 3496-3513: A Review of Centrifugal Testing of Gasoline Contamination and Remediation

24-Aug-2011 | Jay N. Meegoda; Liming Hu, International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, 2011

Leaking underground storage tanks (USTs) containing gasoline represent a significant public health hazard. Virtually undetectable to the UST owner, gasoline leaks can contaminate groundwater supplies. In order to develop remediation plans one must know the extent of gasoline contamination. ...


Entropy, Vol. 13, Pages 1533-1540: Distinguishability in Entropy Calculations: Chemical Reactions, Conformational and Residual Entropy

23-Aug-2011 | Ernesto Suárez, Entropy, 2011

By analyzing different examples of practical entropy calculations and using concepts such as conformational and residual entropies, I show herein that experimental calorimetric entropies of single molecules can be theoretically reproduced considering chemically identical atoms either as ...


IJERPH, Vol. 8, Pages 3479-3495: Sex Differences in Suicide Incident Characteristics and Circumstances among Older Adults: Surveillance Data from the National Violent Death Reporting System—17 U.S. States, 2007–2009

23-Aug-2011 | Karch, Debra, International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, 2011

Each year in the U.S. more than 7,000 adults aged 60 years and older die of suicide and as the population ages, these numbers are expected to increase. While sex is an important predictor of older adult suicide, differences between males and females are often overlooked due to low occurrence, ...


Energies, Vol. 4, Pages 1246-1257: Forecasting Electricity Demand in Thailand with an Artificial Neural Network Approach

22-Aug-2011 | Karin Kandananond, Energies, 2011

Demand planning for electricity consumption is a key success factor for the development of any countries. However, this can only be achieved if the demand is forecasted accurately. In this research, different forecasting methods—autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA), artificial neural ...


IJERPH, Vol. 8, Pages 3468-3478: A Gastroenteritis Outbreak Caused by Noroviruses in Greece

22-Aug-2011 | Apostolos Vantarakis; Kassiani Μellou; Georgia Spala; Petros Kokkinos; Yiannis Alamanos, International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, 2011

In June 2006, an outbreak alert regarding cases of acute gastroenteritis in a region in North Eastern Greece (population 100,882 inhabitants), triggered investigations to guide control measures. The outbreak started the first days of June, and peaked in July. A descriptive epidemiological study, ...


IJERPH, Vol. 8, Pages 3453-3467: Loss of Propiconazole and Its Four Stereoisomers from the Water Phase of Two Soil-Water Slurries as Measured by Capillary Electrophoresis

22-Aug-2011 | Arthur W. Garrison; Jimmy K. Avants; Rebecca D. Miller, International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, 2011

Propiconazole is a chiral fungicide used in agriculture for control of many fungal diseases on a variety of crops. This use provides opportunities for pollution of soil and, subsequently, groundwater. The rate of loss of propiconazole from the water phase of two different soil-water slurries ...


IJERPH, Vol. 8, Pages 3437-3452: Vulnerability of Newborns to Environmental Factors: Findings from Community Based Surveillance Data in Bangladesh

22-Aug-2011 | Ishtiaq Mannan; Yoonjoung Choi; Anastasia J. Coutinho; Atique I. Chowdhury; Syed Moshfiqur Rahman; Habib R. Seraji; ..., International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, 2011

Infection is the major cause of neonatal deaths. Home born newborns in rural Bangladeshi communities are exposed to environmental factors increasing their vulnerability to a number of disease agents that may compromise their health. The current analysis was conducted to assess the association of ...
