  • Film: A Synthesis Essay

    molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and spray pyrolysis. Factors such as control of film thickness and deposition rate by varying the solution pH, temperature and reagent concentration are allied with the ability of chemical bath deposition to coat large areas, in a reproducible and low cost process. The chemical bath deposition process uses a controlled chemical reaction to effect the deposition of a thin film by precipitation. In the most typical experimental approach, substrates are immersed in an…

  • Non Point Sources Case Study

    Point source: Built in or settled pollutant discharge facilities. In other words, single and identifiable source of pollution. For example, industrial wastes or certain chemicals such as mercury can be discharged from industrial discharge pipes to rivers or lakes. Waste disposal pipes can be another example. Non-point source: Release of potential pollutants from a range of activities without a single or definite source. Agricultural facilities can be considered as non-point sources. Stormwater…

  • The Major Effects On The Hydrological Cycle During Rural Floods

    Introduction The urbanization of a catchment is a drastic change in land use, and has major effects on the hydrological cycle during heavy rainfall events because of its impermeable surfaces (G. E. Hollis). By recording the discharge in a catchment the data can be used to create a hydrograph. It is often useful to analyse a hydrograph because it shows how quickly rainwater moves to the stream channel (Holden J. 2012.) The aim of this study is to compare an urban and rural catchment, and to find…

  • Water Erosion Conclusion

    play a large role in reducing water erosion, and preventing water pollution”(GEI Works Erosion Pollution). There are 4 types of water erosion that can occur is Sheet,Rill,Gully,Splash. Sheet erosion is the Removal of a “thin layer of soil from a large area. Rill erosion is a series of small channels on a slope carved by running water” (Plant and Soil Sciences eLibrary). Gully erosion is a “large, wide channels carved by running water. As a rule of thumb, a gully is large enough that it cannot be…
