Abstract:The purpose of this study was to investigate the characteristics and source 

apportionment of carbonaceous aerosols in PM<inf>10</inf>for the daytime and nighttime 

during spring and summer over Lanzhou. The samples were collected from 1 April 2015 to 30 

August 2015, daytime samples were collected during 08:00 to 20:00 and nighttime samples 

during 20:00 to 08:00 on the next day, and organic carbon (OC) and elemental carbon (EC) 

concentrations were measured. The results showed that PM<inf>10</inf>, OC and EC 

concentrations were (136.0&plusmn;84.3), (12.4&plusmn;3.2), (2.3&plusmn;0.7) 

&mu;g&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>during the daytime, and (196.0&plusmn;109.2), 

(16.0&plusmn;5.3), (5.0&plusmn;2.1) &mu;g&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>during the nighttime. The 

mass concentrations of PM<inf>10</inf>, OC and EC in the nighttime were higher than those 

during the daytime. The ratios of secondary organic carbon to total organic carbon were 

higher in the daytime than nighttime, suggesting that the secondary organic carbon 

pollution was more serious in the daytime. In sand-dust weather, the concentrations of 

PM<inf>10</inf>and OC were higher than those in non-dust weather, while the EC 

concentration was close to that in non-dust weather. Secondary organic carbon and total 

carbon aerosols were higher in sand-dust weather, but the contribution to the 

PM<inf>10</inf>was relatively low. In addition, principal component analysis on the eight 

carbon fractions of non-dust weather indicated that coal combustion, vehicle exhaust and 

biomass burning were the major sources for carbonaceous aerosol during the daytime, while 

coal combustion, dust, diesel exhaust and biomass burning played important roles in the 

nighttime. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Forms distribution and ecotoxicity of sulfonamides in root-soil interface of 

maize were studied by chemical analysis and luminescent bacteria toxicity assay. The 

results indicated that the water soluble residues were the main form in rhizosperic 

soils, and the organic solvent extractable residues were the main form in far-rhizosperic 

soils. The three forms of sulfonamides showed relatively lower toxicity to luminescent 

bacteria with the relative inhibition rates less than 30%. The toxicity of water soluble 

residues was lower than that of the organic solvent extractable residues, and the bound 

residues showed the lowest toxicity to luminescent bacteria. The contents and relative 

inhibition rates of water soluble residues in rhizosperic soils were higher than those in 

far-rhizosperic soils, while the contents and relative inhibition rates of organic 

solvent extractable and bound residues in rhizosperic soils were lower than those in 

far-rhizosperic soils. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Coastal organic pollution has become a serious problem, thus it is imperative to 

assess the potential effects on the marine environment. The microbes are generally the 

first responders to environmental perturbation, which may serve as biological indicators 

for pollution levels. In this study, we collected surface seawater samples from Sanmen 

Bay and adjacent Yushan Reserve. Using an Illumina sequencing based analysis of bacterial 

16S rRNA gene, we explored the effect of organic pollution on the bacterioplankton 

community compositions (BCCs). The results showed that the organic pollution (A) was 

4.57&plusmn;2.41 at Sanmen Bay, which was significantly higher (P&lt;0.001) than that in 

Yushan Reserve (0.43&plusmn;0.74). The bacterial diversity and community compositions 

differed significantly between the two locations. Specifically, the relative abundance of 

Actinobacteria, &alpha;-Proteobacteria, &beta;-Proteobacteria, SAR406 in Sanmen Bay was 

significantly higher than that in Yushan Reserve, while Bacteroidetes, Cyanobacteria, 

Planctomycetes exhibited an opposite change pattern. A multivariate regression tree 

analysis showed that the bacterial diversity was primarily affected by water pH, organic 

pollution and chlorophyll a levels, which respectively explained 27.7%, 15.6% and 6.7% 

variance in bacterial diversity. A redundancy analysis (RDA) revealed that the 

bacterioplankton community was significantly controlled by pH, salinity and organic 

pollution, which cumulatively explained 14.8% of the variation in BCCs. In addition, the 

geographic distance was significantly (P&lt;0.001) correlated with BCCs, accounting for 

4.42% variance, which suggested that the spatial distribution of bacterioplankton 

community was non-random. Moreover, this study screened 23 sensitive bacterial families, 

whose relative abundances were significantly associated the organic pollution. For a 

given bacterial family, the change pattern of relative abundance was consistent with its 

known function, thus holding the potential for indicating organic pollution levels. To 

conclude, this study showed that the increasing coastal organic pollution had altered 

BCCs, and enriched the relative abundances of potential pathogens. Furthermore, the 

sensitive bio-indicators were screened for evaluating the increasing organic pollution 

level. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:A large number of researches showed that the N<inf>2</inf>O negative emissions 

from flooding paddy fields, peatlands and other wetlands ecosystem were frequent and 

considerable, which is of great significance on alleviating the greenhouse gas effect. 

However, there are few reports about the transformation and microbial mechanism of 

N<inf>2</inf>O between atmosphere and paddy soil. The slurry of surface paddy soil (0-5 

cm) was incubated in laboratory conditions, and the effect of enhanced N<inf>2</inf>O 

concentrations in headspace on the N<inf>2</inf>O consumption capacity of submerged paddy 

soil and the response of nosZ gene abundance were explored. The results showed that, 

paddy soil under flooding and anaerobic conditions harbored very strong potential of 

N<inf>2</inf>O reduction along with a relatively high nosZ gene abundance 

(10<sup>8</sup>copies&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>dry soil at DNA level). Regression analysis 

presented the N<inf>2</inf>O concentrations in headspace were positively correlated 

(r<sup>2</sup>=1, P&lt;0.001) to the N<inf>2</inf>O consumption rates of paddy soil 

slurry, indicating the high N<inf>2</inf>O concentration could stimulate the 

N<inf>2</inf>O consumption power, to a very high rate of 4 567.99 &mu;g&middot;

(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;h)<sup>-1</sup>. Meanwhile, there were no significant differences 

in the high abundance of nosZ gene among N<inf>2</inf>O treatments, demonstrating the 

nosZ gene abundance at DNA level might not be the main controller of N<inf>2</inf>O 

consumption ability in submerged paddy soil and further study on the key microbial factor 

is needed. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:According to the data collected from the five monitoring sites in front of the 

dam in Thousand-island Lake in September 2015, the vertical distribution characteristics 

of dissolved oxygen (DO), water temperature, pH, turbidity, conductivity and 

phytoplankton were analyzed. The influencing factors of special stratification of DO and 

vertical distribution of phytoplankton were also discussed. The results showed that: (1) 

The vertical distribution of DO presented &ldquo;the surface is higher than the 

underlying&rdquo; mode. DO ranged from 1.95 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to 8.25 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>and the average concentration was 5.10 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. 

Low-oxygen zones appeared between 12 m and 20 m and the minimum concentration was 1.95 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>at 17 m. The concentration of DO maintained at a high level 

between 0 m and 12 m and the vertical variance was small. Sudden drop of DO occurred 

between 12 m and 20 m and there was an anoxic zone (&lt;4.0 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>). 

The concentration of DO returned to normal level between 20 m and 38 m. Then it reduced 

under 38m as the water depth increased. The vertical distribution of pH showed the same 

trend with that of DO and their sudden change regions appeared in the same zone. (2) 

Vertical phytoplankton biomass displayed significant difference. The phytoplankton 

biomass of S1, S2 and S3 presented: mid-layer&gt;surface&gt;bottom. But S4, S5 presented: 

bottom&gt;surface&gt;mid-layer. In addition, the depth between 20 m and 30 m was the best 

for the growth of phytoplankton. (3) The correlation analysis showed that DO and water 

temperature in the thermocline were significantly correlative. The range and degree of 

low-oxygen zones in Thousand-island Lake was determined by physical processes like 

thermal stratification of water and direct or indirect effects of the plankton. 

Phytoplankton and DO, pH showed significant negative correlation. The phytoplankton was 

mainly influenced by turbulent mixing and DO stratification in the surface layer while it 

was mainly influenced by light intensity at the bottom. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:Hanfeng Pre-reservoir is very rare in the world which is specially designed to 

reduce the impact of Fluctuating Zone, and it is formed in Hanfeng Lake of Three Gorges 

reservoir. The Hanfeng Pre-reservoir has many special hydrological characteristics and 

ecological environment features based on its unique &ldquo;pre-reservoir&rdquo; control 

mode, the wide seasonal wetland of Fluctuating Zone, the huge life pollution and 

agricultural pollution, and the pressure of huge city and excessive population. HanFeng 

Lake has a variety of morphological features such as lakes, rivers, and other backwater 

bay, for the effect of water level regulation in Three Gorges, since the successful 

commissioning of the Hanfeng Lake pre-dam system in 2015. The change of Hanfeng Lake 

hydrology and water quality during the commissioning was divided into four periods by 

combining Hydrological and Morphological Variation characteristics with Water quality 

indicators time clustering analysis: May to August as T1 (river period); January, March 

and November to December as T2 (lake period); February, April and September as T3 (water 

level fluctuation period); October as T4 (algal blooms period) in 2015. Principal 

component analysis and stepwise regression analysis showed that Eutrophication of Hanfeng 

Lake was dominated by different dominant components at different times and the water 

quality index factor which has a significant effect on the Chl-a was also different. 

Cumulative contribution rates of principal components were 82.93%, 77.61%, 78.32%, 88.40% 

for each period, respectively. The main water quality indicators of T1 (river period) 

were DP, TP, SD, pH and the significant influencing index of Chl-a was PC<inf>2</inf>, so 

Chl-a was mainly affected by water nitrogen content. The main water quality indicators of 

T2 (lake period) were TN, DN, DP, TP, NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N and the significant 

influencing index of Chl-a was PC<inf>1</inf>, so Chl-a was mainly affected by water 

eutrophication including nitrogen and phosphorus nutrient status. The main water quality 

indicators of T3 (water level fluctuation period) were SD, NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N, 

DN, T and the significant influencing index of Chl-a was PC<inf>3</inf>. so Chl-a was 

mainly affected by water level fluctuation. The main water quality indicators of T4 

(algal blooms period) were TN, DN, DO, NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N, pH, permanganate 

index, H, NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N and the significant influencing index of Chl-a was 

PC<inf>3</inf>. so Chl-a was mainly affected by flow rate and hydrodynamic conditions. As 

mentioned in the review, the frequent and significant water level changes during the 

commissioning of Hanfeng Lake were the important factors influencing the change of 

hydrological and water quality characteristics. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are ubiquitous environmental 

contaminants that originate mainly from anthropogenic sources. PAHs have elicited much 

concern because they exhibit strong toxic, carcinogenic, and mutagenic properties. 

Agricultural soil is at risk of PAH contamination mainly caused by atmospheric 

depositions, wastewater irrigation, or organic substances and biowaste applied as 

fertilizers. The surface agricultural soils were collected from Shandong in July 2015, 

and measured for 16 US EPA priority PAHs using high performance liquid chromatography 

with UV and fluorescence detector. The content and composition of PAHs were analyzed. The 

differences of PAHs between soils from the field for growing crops and from vegetable 

greenhouses, and between soils from point sources and from non-point sources were 

compared. The sources of PAHs were determined with methods of ratio between PAHs and 

positive matrix factorization (PMF), and the risks of PAHs were assessed. The results 

showed that the total content of 16 PAHs (&sum;16PAHs) ranged from 111.5 

ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>to 2 744.1 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, with the mean of 556.3 

ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>. The content of 3-ring PAHs was relatively high, with the mean 

of 201.5 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>; while the contents of 2-ring and 6-ring PAHs were 

relatively low, with the mean of 39.3 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>and 43.4 ng&middot;g<sup>-

1</sup>, respectively. According to the contamination classification in Poland, 71% of 

the samples in Shangdong were weakly contaminated. Compared with other areas in China, 

the content of PAHs in the agricultural soils in Shandong was in the middle range. 

Acenaphthene, fluorine, and fluoranthene were the major PAH compounds, accounting for 

more than 10% of the total PAHs; while the contribution of indeno (1,2,3-cd) pyrene was 

low. The content of &sum;16PAHs and contribution of 7 carcinogenic PAHs were 

significantly higher in soils polluted by point sources than those in soils from non-

point sources. Moreover, the contribution of PAHs with 2-3 rings was significantly higher 

in soils from non-point sources, while the contribution of PAHs with 4-6 rings was 

significantly higher in soils polluted by point sources. There was no significant 

difference in soils from vegetable greenhouses and from adjacent field soils, and the 

contribution of PAHs with 3-4 rings was high. The PAH isomer pair ratios of Ant/(Ant

+Phe), Flu/(Flu+Pyr), BaA/(BaA+Chr), and InP/(InP+BP) were utilized as molecular indices 

to elucidate the possible PAH sources, and the results suggested that the PAHs in the 

soils were mainly from combustion. To quantitatively assess the contribution of various 

sources to PAH contamination, PMF was used to analyze the sources. The sources of PAHs 

were combustion of coal biomass, oil combustion from traffic, coking, and petroleum 

pollution, with contribution of 42.7%, 19.3%, 22.8% and 15.2%, respectively. Toxic 

equivalency factors were used to evaluate PAH contamination in the soils, and the 

carcinogenicity of other PAHs relative to BaP was quantified to estimate the BaP-

equivalent concentration (TEQ<inf>BaP</inf>). The TEQ<inf>BaP</inf>of 16 PAHs 

(&sum;16TEQ<inf>Bap</inf>) in soils from non-point sources and vegetable greenhouses was 

31.69 and 44.47 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, respectively, which were below the safe value 

in Canadian soil quality guidelines. However, the &sum;16TEQ<inf>Bap</inf>in some field 

soils from point sources exceeded the safe value, indicating that there were potential 

risks in the soils from point sources in Shandong. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Greenhouse gas emission from aquatic ecosystem will affect climate change on the 

regional and global scale. So large river interception project which affects the carbon 

cycle model and greenhouse gas emission from aquatic ecosystem has provoked more and more 

attentions in recent years. In order to understand and evaluate the effects of typical 

hydropower project construction on the aquatic ecosystem and carbon cycle, the Geheyan 

Reservoir, a typical river interception project, was selected as a typical case in this 

paper for measuring carbon dioxide fluxes from interface between water and atmosphere 

from March, 2015 to February, 2016. The integration of the online gas analyzer and 

floating box was used to obtain carbon dioxide fluxes from interface between water and 

atmosphere. Data was obtained over the before dam, upstream, tributary, drawdown area and 

bay area respectively for understanding the spatial Heterogeneity of carbon dioxide 

fluxes. Data analysis showed that yearly mean fluxes of carbon dioxide from the Geheyan 

Reservoir was (55.6918&plusmn;66.3329) mg&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;h)<sup>-

1</sup>during measurement, which indicated that the temporal distribution was higher in 

winter and lower in other seasons and the spatial variation was higher in typical bay and 

lower before dam as well as drawdown zone over the reservoir. Moreover, the seasonal 

variation of carbon dioxide fluxes from the interface between water and atmosphere was 

very stable at Yuxiakou measurement points as a typical background area of the reservoir, 

which was unexpectedly higher than those before dam and drawdown zone in the most months 

during measurement. The results from data analysis also indicated that the spatial and 

temporal variation of carbon dioxide fluxes from the Geheyan Reservoir was affected by 

water quality parameters such as dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll, pH, water temperature and 

conductivity and carbon in water, but the relationship between carbon dioxide fluxes and 

other parameter was very different within each season and impound period. So the results 

above will provide more supports for understanding the import pathway and transfer of 

aquatic carbon cycle caused by large river interception project in China. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:In recent years, more and more public attention has been paid to the problem of 

air pollution during the heating period in North China. This article took a heavy 

pollution process of Shijiazhuang district from Nov. 24th to Dec. 4th in 2015 as an 

example, and analyzed comprehensively the source apportionment in different periods, size 

distribution of the PM<inf>2.5</inf>from each source in different periods, the 

characteristics of mass spectra of the main emission sources and the meteorological 

conditions with the method of real-time online source analysis. It turned out: the main 

sources of pollutants were coal combustions, industrial discharges, vehicle exhausts and 

secondary inorganic reactions. With the help of meteorological condition of low pressure 

and low wind speed, the PM<inf>2.5</inf>mainly produced by coal combustions and 

industrial discharges accumulated heavily and went through the second stage conversion, 

leading to this heavy air pollution. The main particulate matters from coal combustions 

were the mixed carbons; the main particulate matters from industrial discharges were 

metals; the main particulate matters from vehicle exhausts were elemental carbon and 

manganese metal; the main particulate matters from pure secondary inorganic sources were 

secondary inorganic ions; the main particulate matters from dust pollution were aluminum, 

calcium, iron and silicate minerals; the main particulate matters from biomass fuel 

combustions were levoglucosan; the feature signal from restaurant discharges was organic 

acid. Different from the distribution before and after the heavy pollution period, the 

particulate matters from the 8 pollution sources presented even distribution during the 

heavy pollution period. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Speciation characteristics of fifteen heavy metals in seventeen surface 

sediments from Jiulong River was analyzed using the modified BCR protocol and dilute 

HNO<inf>3</inf>method, respectively. The results of the modified BCR protocol showed that 

most of the elements (Fe, Ni, V, Tl, Ba, Sb, Ga, Cr and Sr) existed mainly in residual 

fractions, and extractable fraction was dominant for Mn (83.8%), followed by Cd, Pb, Zn, 

Co and Cu (80.0%, 75.5%, 74.3%, 70.8% and 57.7%). The results of dilute 

HNO<inf>3</inf>method showed that the proportions of the dilute HNO<inf>3</inf>-

extractable fractions of Pb, Mn, Cd, Co, Zn and Cu were higher (70.4%, 65.4%, 58.7%, 

48.4%, 44.5% and 45.5%). The assessment results of RSP (ratio of secondary phase to 

primary phase) indicated that Pb, Mn, Cd, Co, Zn and Cu in surface sediments of Jiulong 

River had higher ecological risks. Both extraction methods had merits and demerits 

respectively. In general, the dilute HNO<inf>3</inf>method is enough to analyze the 

bioavailability and ecological risk of heavy metals in sediments. &copy; 2017, Science

Abstract:Urban traffic is an important source of greenhouse gases such as CH<inf>4</inf>. 

The observations on CH<inf>4</inf>are the basis for quantitative analysis of urban carbon 

emissions. Taken into consideration the weekly and daily changing characteristics of 

urban traffic, we conducted experiments to analyze the features of traffic 

CH<inf>4</inf>emission and its influential factors. The experiments were conducted on 3 

main roads in Nanjing on Oct. 17, 18, 20, 23, 2014 with 5 periods of observation per day, 

and in Nanjing Yangtze River tunnel in the morning and at night of Sep.11 2014. The 

results showed that: (1)The average concentration of CH<inf>4</inf>on the urban main road 

of Nanjing city was greater than that of the background atmosphere. Affected by traffic 

conditions, the spatial difference of &Delta;CH<inf>4</inf>concentration was significant 

on three typical main roads. &Delta;CH<inf>4</inf>concentration's diurnal variation 

showed inverted &ldquo;W&rdquo; type, and its peak appeared in the morning and evening 

rush hours. (2) Due to the &ldquo;piston wind&rdquo; in the tunnel, the 

CH<inf>4</inf>concentration in Nanjing Yangtze River tunnel gradually increased from the 

inlet to the outlet and the difference of concentration between the inlet and the outlet 

was 0.21&times;10<sup>-6</sup>-0.38&times;10<sup>-6</sup>. (3)There was a good linear 

correlation between CH<inf>4</inf>concentration and CO<inf>2</inf>concentration. The 

atmospheric &Delta;CH<inf>4</inf>&#8758;&Delta;CO<inf>2</inf>value of urban main road in 

Nanjing was 0.009 1 and the atmospheric 

&Delta;CH<inf>4</inf>&#8758;&Delta;CO<inf>2</inf>value of Nanjing Yangtze River Tunnel 

was 0.000 47-0.001 4. (4)Traffic volume and the proportion of natural gas vehicles were 

the main factors influencing atmospheric &Delta;CH<inf>4</inf>concentration and 

&Delta;CH<inf>4</inf>&#8758;&Delta;CO<inf>2</inf>. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:The concentration level of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAHs) in topsoil 

from Shenfu New City in urbanization was studied. 54 topsoil samples were collected from 

Shenfu New City and 4 different land uses (urban land, rural land, forest land, 

cultivated land) were included. The concentration of PAHs in different land uses was 

analyzed, the sources of soil PAHs were analyzed by using diagnostic ratios and principal 

component analysis, and the ecological risks were calculated using toxic equivalency 

concentrations of BaP and the incremental lifetime cancer risk(ILCR)model. Results 

indicated that the concentrations of &sum;PAHs in urban land, cultivated land, rural land 

and forest land were in the range of 184-18 276, 230-14 102, 151-3 205, 303-2 980 

&mu;g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. Four land uses had similar sources, the main 

sources were coal combustion and traffic emission. According to the calculation of 

ecological risks, there were potential health risks for residents in Shenfu New City, 

especially urban land, meanwhile, residents were easily exposed to soil PAHs through 

dermal contact. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:High free ammonia nitrogen (FAN) is regarded as a main factor that inhibits 

biogas production in high solid anaerobic digestion systems with dewatered sludge. Two 

mesophilic semi-continuous anaerobic digesters fed with dewatered sludge (input total 

solids=15%) were operated and their performance under different FAN concentrations by two 

regulation methods including pH reduction and total ammonia nitrogen (TAN) promotion were 

investigated. Results showed that when FAN was elevated from (400&plusmn;174) 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to (526&plusmn;25) mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>with the increase of 

TAN, the daily biogas yield declined from (11.9&plusmn;0.3) L&middot;d<sup>-1</sup>to 

(10.3&plusmn;0.2) L&middot;d<sup>-1</sup>. Meanwhile, volatile solids (VS) reduction rate 

decreased by 33.7%. When FAN dropped from (330&plusmn;99) mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to 

(47&plusmn;13) mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>due to pH reduction, daily biogas yield declined 

from (14.4&plusmn;1.1) L&middot;d<sup>-1</sup>to (10.8&plusmn;0.3) L&middot;d<sup>-

1</sup>and VS reduction rate decreased by 26.9%. The system performance was not enhanced 

with the reduction of FAN. With the stop of pH regulation, FAN gradually raised again to 

300 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>and digester performance recovered to the same as the 

situation before regulation. The result suggested that inhibition occurred during pH 

reduction. By 16S rRNA pyrosequencing analysis on bacterial and archaeal diversity and 

quantitative PCR analysis aiming at methanogens, it was found that bacterial community 

structure both changed obviously with obvious performance decline in the two digesters. 

Excessive FAN (&gt;500 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>) could change the main bacteria species 

which degrade protein from Tepidimicrobium and Proteiniborus to Anaerobranca. On the 

other hand, some carbohydrate and protein degrading bacteria were also inhibited by pH 

reduction for FAN control, leading to the decline of hydrolysis rates of organic matters. 

As a result, the shortage of substrate supply for the methanogens weakened the biogas 

production of the digestion system. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:A bacterium strain LW26 which could utilize chlorobenzene (CB) as sole carbon 

and energy source was isolated from a biotrickling filter reactor treating CB-

contaminated off-gas. Based on its morphological and physiological characteristics, as 

well as the analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequence and Biolog test, the strain LW26 was 

identified as Delftia tsuruhatensis. To our best knowledge, it is the first time that the 

strain Delftia tsuruhatensis was applied for CB purification. In this study, the effects 

of temperature, pH, initial CB concentration and Cl<sup>-</sup>concentration on the 

biodegradation were investigated. The results showed that the optimal temperature and pH 

for CB biodegradation were 25&#8451; and 7.0, respectively; the maximum CB tolerated 

concentration for LW26 was as high as 500 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>; when the 

concentration of Cl<sup>-</sup>was above 0.14 mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, the CB 

degradation was significantly restrained. The degrading process of the strain LW26 

followed the Haldane kinetic model and the maximum specific growth rate and the maximum 

specific degradation rate were 0.42 h<sup>-1</sup>and 2.53 h<sup>-1</sup>, 

respectively.GC-MS analysis of the metabolites revealed that CB was firstly converted to 

o-chlorophenol by strain LW26. Combined with the activity of catechol dioxygenase, it can 

be speculated that CB was finally mineralized to CO<inf>2</inf>, or converted to cell 

biomass after processes of ortho cleavage, dechlorination and oxidation. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:Stable carbon isotope of dissolved inorganic carbon 

(&delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>DIC</inf>), which is mainly constituted by 

HCO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>in karst water, is widely used to trace the different sources 

and influential factors of dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC). In order to understand the 

distribution of DIC and &delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>DIC</inf>in subtropical karst area, 

this paper researched the water chemistry and &delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>DIC</inf>in a 

karst surface stream in detail, which is fed by Guancun subterranean stream in Liuzhou 

City, Guangxi Province, in the southwest of China. The results showed that the contents 

of DIC in subterranean stream outlet (G1 site) ranged from 4.60 to 4.90 

mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>with an average of 4.73 mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>in dry 

season, and from 2.80 to 4.70 mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>with an average of 4.23

Abstract:As one of the main atmospheric pollutants over surface layer, researches on the 

increasing surface ozone concentration and its impact on main crops have become the focus 

of every government and the public. In this paper, based on the observations in Nanjing 

using the main local cultivars in China's major winter wheat producing areas, it was 

expected to obtain the data including ozone concentration, meteorological data and 

stomatal conductance by continuous observation. Stomatal conductance model was used and 

parameterized, combined with flux model, we analyzed the characteristics of stomatal flux 

in winter wheat under ozone pollution. At the same time, the stomatal conductance and 

stomatal ozone absorption flux of winter wheat were simulated in Jiangsu Province. The 

main results were as follows: Elevated ozone concentration could reduce stomatal 

conductance of winter wheat leaf and stomatal conductance decreased with the increase of 

ozone concentration. According to the observational data through the experiment, based on 

the boundary line technology, stomatal conductance model was parameterized to simulate 

stomatal conductance of wheat leaves from environmental factors. Approximately 90%, 77% 

and 83% variation of measured stomatal conductance could be explained by the stomatal 

conductance model. In the experiment, the total ozone absorption flux in ozone 

concentration of CK(53.67 nL&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>), 100nL&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, 

150nL&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>was 6.42 mmol&middot;m<sup>-2</sup>, 12.27 

mmol&middot;m<sup>-2</sup>, 13.90 mmol&middot;m<sup>-2</sup>respectively. The ozone 

concentration gradually increased from early period to late period during the period of 

winter wheat growth in Jiangsu area. The average stomatal conductance followed the order 

of the middle stage&gt;the later stage&gt;the early stage. Winter wheat ozone cumulative 

absorption flux was the highest during the middle stage. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:Organics, sulfide and nitrogen compounds in industrial wastewater are 

significant challenges for wastewater treatment. These pollutants could be removed 

simultaneously from wastewater treatment system using biological technologies. In this 

study, a heterotrophic denitrifying sulfur bacterial strain HDD1 was isolated from 

wastewater treatment bioreactor. Strain HDD1 was identified as Thauera sp. based on the 

16S rRNA gene phylogenetic analysis and physiological characteristics. Acetate and 

sulfide could be utilized as electron donors and nitrate as electron acceptor for 

respiration in Thauera sp. HDD1. The acetate (300 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>), sulfide (200 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>) and nitrate (487 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>) were completely 

metabolized and removed within 15 hours. The main product of sulfide oxidation was 

elemental sulfur as identified by scanning electron microscope and energy dispersive 

spectrometer. These results suggest that the newly isolated Thauera sp. HDD1 could be 

used for simultaneous industrial wastewater treatment and elemental sulfur resource 

recovery. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Vegetable is an indispensible component of human daily diet, and contamination 

of vegetables by heavy metals directly threatens human health. In this study, 116 

vegetable samples were collected from 12 administrative districts of Guangzhou City for 

analysis of six heavy metals, Cu, Zn, Pb, Cd, Ni, Cr. A combination of single factor 

evaluation and Nemero Index analysis was employed to determine specific heavy metals 

exceeding allowable standards and analyze the characteristics of pollution. Risk of 

exposure was utilized to assess human health risks originating from eating locally 

planted vegetables contaminated by heavy metals. The results showed that contents of Cu, 

Zn in the 8 sorts of vegetables were below the standards of maximum allowable content and 

the contents of heavy mental Cr of up to 91.67% vegetable samples were higher than their 

standard. Lettuce sativa var. angustana Irish, Luffa acutangula L., Lycopersicon 

esculentum Mill. and Daucus carota L. were the 4 species of Pb exceeding vegetables, with 

the exceed ratio reaching up to 35.71% and Daucus carota L. exceeded the target value 

most seriously. Only the content of Cd in Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. was over-

standard,with the rate of 31.25%. And the highest rate of over-standard of the content of 

Ni in 3 species of vegetables, which included Lactuca sativa L., Ipomoea aquatica Forsk 

and Brassica parachinensis, reached 8.33%. For the contamination level of the eight kinds 

of vegetable, Lactuca sativa L., Ipomoea aquatica Forsk, Brassica parachinensis, Raphanus 

sativus L. and Daucus carota L. were put into the class of alarming, while Lettuce sativa 

var. angustana Irish, Luffa acutangula L. and Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. were 

classified as secure. Heavy metals' comprehensive pollution degree of 4 species of 

vegetables presented a trend of leafy vegetables&gt;rootstalk vegetables&gt;stem 

vegetables&gt;solanaceous fruits. Health risk assessment showed that Guangzhou citizens 

eat more frequently Ipomoea aquatica Forsk and Lactuca sativa L. and Brassica 

parachinensis were prone to higher accumulation of heavy metals, and the dietary intake 

of heavy metal Cr might cause harm to human health and intake of Cd would bring potential 

health risk to the human body. Risk of exposure to heavy metal through oral ingestion of 

vegetables was proved to be higher for children than adults. &copy; 2017, Science Press.

Abstract:In this paper, the generalized additive model (GAM) was introduced to analyze 

the interactive effects of the influencing factors on the change of 

PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration during 2013-2015 in Nanjing city. The results showed as 

follows: PM<inf>2.5</inf>and its influencing factors appeared to follow normal 

distribution. There were strong correlations among the influencing factors, especially 

among the temperature(TEM), pressure(PRS) and water vapor pressure(VAP). For the single 

influencing factor GAM models of PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration, all influencing factors 

passed the significance test. Moreover, the equation fitting degrees of SO<inf>2</inf>, 

CO, and NO<inf>2</inf>were much higher. In the multiple influencing factors GAM models of 

PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration, the contribution of the SO<inf>2</inf>, CO, 

NO<inf>2</inf>, O<inf>3</inf>, precipitation (PRE), wind and relative humidity(RHU) to 

the change of PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration was 73.9% with significant impacts on the 

change of PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration. Based on the diagnostic analysis of the effect 

of multi factors on the change of PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration, there were linear 

relationship between PM<inf>2.5</inf>and SO<inf>2</inf>, NO<inf>2</inf>and wind, and 

non-linear relationship between PM<inf>2.5</inf>and CO, O<inf>3</inf>, PRE and RHU. The 

GAM models, which considered the interaction of SO<inf>2</inf>respectively with CO, PRE 

and RHU, the interaction of CO respectively with NO<inf>2</inf>, O<inf>3</inf>, PRE, Wind 

and RHU, and the interaction of NO<inf>2</inf>respectively with Wind, PRE and RHU, all 

passed the significance test(P&lt;0.01 or P&lt;0.05). The interaction of SO<inf>2</inf>, 

CO and NO<inf>2</inf>respectively with other factors such as meteorological factors had 

the most important influence on the change of PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration. At last, 

through the visualized three-dimensional map of the GAM models considering the 

interaction of the influencing factors on the PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration, the 

interactive effects of the influencing factors on PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration were 

quantitatively modeled. Our results demonstrated that GAM could be used to quantitatively 

analyze the interactive effect of the influencing factors on the change of 

PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration. Therefore, the research method is innovative and important 

for PM<inf>2.5</inf>pollution and control. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:The biodegradation characteristics of the azo disperse dye neocron black (NB) 

were investigated under aerobic, anaerobic and anaerobic/aerobic conditions separately 

with the activated sludge system, and the biological degradation process of the dye was 

analyzed by spectrophotometry and gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The 

results showed that the degradation efficiency of NB dye was the highest under fully 

aerobic conditions, followed by the anaerobic/aerobic conditions, and fully anaerobic 

condition was the lowest. With the increase of the concentration of NB dye, the dye and 

the intermediate metabolite greatly decreased the microbial degradation efficiency of NB 

dye. The addition of carbon source could not only promote the biodegradation of NB dye, 

but also change the kinetic characteristics of the biodegradation process. The 

spectrophotometry and GC-MS determination results showed that the chromophore was 

completely degraded after biodegradation of NB dye. The intermediates metabolites of NB 

dye included 2,4-Dinitroaniline, 2-cyano-4-nitro aniline, p-Nitroaniline etc. &copy;

Abstract:Foulants responsible for hydraulic irreversible fouling in Dongjiang River water 

were identified by ultrafiltration process and their removal by powdered activated carbon 

(PAC) adsorption treatment was investigated using fluorescent excitation emission matrix 

and parallel factor analysis (EEM-PARAFAC). A correlation analysis was then carried out 

for samples between the maximum fluorescence intensities (F<inf>max</inf>) of three 

PARAFAC components after PAC adsorption and the surface properties of corresponding PAC 

samples. The results showed that two humic-like (C1 and C3) and one tryptophan-like 

fluorescent components were obtained through PARAFAC analysis, in which tryptophan-like 

component C2 was found to be the main substance in hydraulic irreversible foulants 

extracted from fouled membrane. Furthermore, the results of correlation analysis 

suggested that microspore area of PAC correlated with PAC adsorption of tryptophan-like 

fluorescent components, which played an important role in irreversible fouling. Both BET 

and mesopore+macropore area of PAC correlated with its adsorption of humic-like 

fluorescent components. The result provided support for selecting PAC in PAC-

ultrafiltration hybrid process, which would be more effective for fouling control. &copy;

Abstract:Water quality is the key problem that water management departments concern. 

Water quality of Beijing segment of South-to-North Water Diversion Middle Route Project 

is closely related to water security and social stability in Beijing. Since the 

connection of Beijing part in Middle Route of South-to-North Diversion Project, water 

quality data of Daning regulation and storage reservoir and Daning surge tank was 

collected, and water quality indexes including water temperature, total nitrogen, nitrate 

nitrogen, chloride ion, sulfate, dissolved oxygen, permanganate index, pH, ammonia 

nitrogen, fluorine ion and total phosphorus, were monitored monthly. With variance 

analysis, water quality difference among different water sources of the South-to-North 

Water Diversion of Middle Route was analyzed. With factor analysis method, the water 

quality risk factors of Daning regulation and storage reservoir and Daning surge tank 

were identified. The results were as following, water from Hebei province had higher 

contents of nitrate nitrogen, total nitrogen, fluorine ion, chloride ion and sulfate than 

those of water from Danjiangkou reservoir, but the water quality was not as good as that 

from Danjiangkou reservoir. LSD difference test results showed that the dissolved oxygen, 

nitrate nitrogen and total nitrogen of the water from Hebei province had significant 

differences (P&lt;0.05) between flood season and non-flood season, there was significant 

difference (P&lt;0.05) in pH of water from Danjiangkou reservoir between flood season and 

non-flood season, and the water quality of Danjiangkou reservoir was more stable than 

water from Heibei province. No matter in flood season or non-flood season, there were no 

significant differences (P&lt;0.05) in pH, dissolved oxygen, permanganate index, total 

phosphorus and ammonia nitrogen between the water from Danjiangkou reservoir and Heibei 

province, but there were significant differences (P&lt;0.05) in nitrate nitrogen, total 

nitrogen, fluorine ion and sulfate ion and chloride ion. Contents of Nitrate nitrogen, 

total nitrogen, sulfate and chloride ion in 2015 (the mixture of water from Hebei 

province and Danjiangkou reservoir) in Daning regulation and storage reservoir were lower 

than those in 2012-2014 (water from Hebei province), and the water from Danjiangkou 

reservoir played a key role in dilution and adjustment of the water from Hebei province 

in Daning regulation and storage reservoir. The water quality differences test results 

between 2012-2014 and 2015 showed that there were significant differences (P&lt;0.05) in 

the nitrate nitrogen, total nitrogen, fluorine ion, sulfate and chloride ion both in 

flood season and non-flood season, and the water quality of 2015 was better than that of 

2012~2014 in non-flood season, but the differences of pH, dissolved oxygen, permanganate 

index, total phosphorus, ammonia nitrogen were not obvious (P&lt;0.05). The difference 

test results between Daning regulation and storage reservoir and Daning surge tank showed 

that Permanganate index, total nitrogen, fluorine ion, sulfate and chloride ion had 

significant differences (P&lt;0.05) both in flood season and non-flood season, and the 

contents of permanganate index, fluorine ion, sulfate and chloride ions in Daning 

regulation and storage reservoir were higher than those in Daning surge tank. The factor 

analysis results indicated that water quality potential risk factors both in Daning 

regulation and storage reservoir and Daning surge tank were mainly nitrogen, including 

ammonia nitrogen, nitrate nitrogen and total nitrogen, and potential risk factors also 

included total phosphorus in Daning regulation and storage reservoir. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:This study conducted a full two-year (2014 and 2015) measurements of dry and 

bulk deposition of atmospheric inorganic nitrogen (N) at the suburb of Xining city, 

Qinghai province. Dry N deposition fluxes were calculated by multiplying the atmospheric 

concentrations of NH<inf>3</inf>and NO<inf>2</inf>measured using passive samplers with 

the modeled dry deposition velocities provided by the GEOS-Chem global chemical transport 

model, while bulk N deposition fluxes were measured using precipitation gauge. Annual 

mean concentrations of gaseous NH<inf>3</inf>and NO<inf>2</inf>averaged 8.8 and 19.6 

&mu;g&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>, respectively, with significantly higher values in 2015 than 

in 2014. Seasonal mean NH<inf>3</inf>concentrations were higher in spring and summer than 

in autumn and winter, but the concentrations of NO<inf>2</inf>changed little from season 

to season, with a small peak in autumn. Annual mean concentrations of 

NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N and NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N in precipitation averaged 

2.2 and 1.8 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. Concentrations of 

NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N in autumn were~55% lower than those in other seasons, 

whereas those of NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N in autumn or winter were~26% higher than 

those in spring and summer. Dry deposition of NH<inf>3</inf>and NO<inf>2</inf>was 9.0 and 

2.8 kg&middot;(hm<sup>2</sup>&middot;a)<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. Bulk deposition of 

NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N and NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N in precipitation was 7.6 

and 6.2 kg&middot;(hm<sup>2</sup>&middot;a)<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. Reduced N 

(gaseous NH<inf>3</inf>and NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N in precipitation) was the 

dominant form of N deposition. The total dry and wet N deposition was 25.6 kg&middot;

(hm<sup>2</sup>&middot;a)<sup>-1</sup>, which represented significant nutrient input from 

the environment to the suburban farmland, but this amount of deposited N exceeded the 

critical loads [10-20 kg&middot;(hm<sup>2</sup>&middot;a)<sup>-1</sup>] of terrestrial 

ecosystems, suggesting a risk of &ldquo;N saturation&rdquo; in the local natural 

environment. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:A short-cut nitrification process with modified polyethylene as carrier was 

operated to investigate the biofilm short-cut nitrification recovery using synthetic 

inorganic ammonia-rich wastewater as influent at 30&#8451; &plusmn;1&#8451;. The short-

cut nitrification was destroyed first by excessive aeration, and it was not built in 83 

days under the condition of continuous aeration with DO less than 0.5 mg&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>and free ammonia (FA) more than 1.5 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, which are very 

beneficial to short-cut nitrification. However, short-cut nitrification was realized by 

changing continuous aeration to intermittent aeration on 84<sup>th</sup>day, and it was 

proved again on 142nd day. After that, biofilm system provided a living environment for 

ANAMMOX bacteria, anaerobic ammonia oxidation occurred, and the biofilm short-cut 

nitrification process was gradually transformed into CANON process. As the load of 

influent and aeration increased, the total nitrogen removal efficiency and removal load 

increased, and the total nitrogen removal load could reach up to 2.52 kg&middot;

(m<sup>3</sup>&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>. Finally, in the 3rd stage, 

&Delta;NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N/&Delta;TN was 0.10 on average, which means stabe 

short-cut nitrification in the CANON process. Therefore, once NOB was adapted to FA, it 

would be not very easy to recover short-cut nitrification, while intermittent aeration 

was an effective way, and the nitriation process would be finally transformed into CANON 

process, which would further improve the short-cut nitrification stability. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:UV activated sodium persulfate was employed to remove triclosan (TCS) in aqueous 

solution. The effects of several factors such as UV wavelength, 

UV<inf>254</inf>intensity, sodium persulfate dosage, pH value, and HA on TCS degradation 

were investigated. The second-order rate constants of free radicals (&middot;OH, 

SO<inf>4</inf><sup>&middot;-</sup>) reacting with TCS and their contributions to TCS 

removal were determined, respectively. The dominant free radical was also identified. 

Furthermore, the TCS degradation efficiency in natural water by UV<inf>254</inf>/SPS and 

UV<inf>254</inf>/H<inf>2</inf>O<inf>2</inf>was compared. Finally, the possible pathway 

and intermediate products of TCS degradation were analyzed with GC/MS. The results 

indicated that UV<inf>254</inf>activated sodium persulfate could effectively remove TCS. 

The removal rate of TCS could reach 98.15% within 100s under the conditions of UV 

wavelength of 254 nm,UV intensity of 11.5&mu;W&middot;cm<sup>-2</sup>,sodium persulfate 

dosage of 1mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>,and TCS initial concentration of 275 

&mu;g&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. TCS degradation followed the pseudo-first-order kinetic 

model and the pseudo-first-order rate constant was determined to be 0.039 2 s<sup>-

1</sup>. Pseudo-first-order rate constant for TCS degradation increased with the increase 

of UV<inf>254</inf>intensity(I)and sodium persulfate dosage within experiment ranges. The 

effect of UV wavelength on TCS removal was not notable. Neutral condition was detrimental 

to TCS degradation. TCS removal was inhibited in the presence of HA. The reaction rate 

constants for &middot;OH and SO<inf>4</inf><sup>&middot;-</sup>reacting with TCS were 

7.62&times;10<sup>9</sup>L&middot;mol<sup>-1</sup>&middot;s<sup>-1</sup>and 

9.86&times;10<sup>9</sup>L&middot;mol<sup>-1</sup>&middot;s<sup>-1</sup>,respectively. 

SO<inf>4</inf><sup>&middot;-</sup>was the dominant free radical and its contribution rate 

to TCS removal was 97.63% in UV<inf>254</inf>/SPS system. The K value of 

UV<inf>254</inf>/SPS was 4.13 times higher than that of 

UV<inf>254</inf>/H<inf>2</inf>O<inf>2</inf>process,which demonstrated that 

UV<inf>254</inf>/SPS process could remove TCS more effectively than 

UV<inf>254</inf>/H<inf>2</inf>O<inf>2</inf>. The main intermediate products found were 

2,4-DCP and phenol in the degradation process of TCS in Milli-Q water by 

UV<inf>254</inf>/SPS. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Targeting at the characteristics of low concentration but high risk of endocrine 

disrupting compounds in the aquatic environment, the current study investigated the 

distribution of estrogenicity and E2 level using recombinant yeast estrogen screen (YES) 

and enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELSIA) during domestic wastewater treatment 

processes. The results showed that the levels of estrogenicity and E2 in influents of 

wastewater treatment plants were 4.35-7.58 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>and 36.95-83.43 

ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. It was found that biological treatment processes 

played a crucial role in the removal of estrogenicity and E2, such as oxidation ditch, 

A<sup>2</sup>/O and A<sup>2</sup>/O followed by MBR, where the removal of estrogenicity 

and E2 was 71.10%-75.54% and 75.88%-80.72%, respectively. The activated sludge, with an 

estrogencity level of 1.84-2.43 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>and an E2 level of 8.45-12.84 

ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, had the function of eliminating estrogenic effect to a certain 

extent by adsorption. The estrogenic activity in the effluent of domestic wastewater was 

1.06-2.19 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, which will pose potential risk to the aquatic life in 

the environment. Last but not least, ELISA had a good correlation with YES assay, which 

provides a new method for rapid screening and assessment of water environmental estrogen.

Abstract:The alleviation effect of exogenous melatonin (MT) on Ni toxicity in rice 

seedings was investigated. The results showed that low concentration of Ni stress (10, 50 

&mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>) had little effect on the growth of root of rice seedings, 

while higher concentration of Ni stress (100-1 000 &mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>) 

significantly inhibited the growth of rice root. Compared with the control treatment, the 

addition of 100 and 1 000 &mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>Ni would decrease the total length 

and surface area of root by 63.3%-98.0% and 56.9%-96.3%, respectively. The results showed 

that addition of exogenous melatonin had a positive effect on the growth of rice seedings 

under Ni stress. This kind of positive effect was even more obvious in the root of rice 

seedings. The total length of rice root decreased by 58.4%-83.8% at Ni concentration of 

100 &mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, whereas it decreased by only 8.7%-29.1% when 100 

&mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>Ni and 10 &mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>MT were added, 

compared with the control treatment. The addition of exogenous melatonin had significant 

alleviation effects on oxidative stress in rice seedings caused by Ni. Compared with the 

100 &mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>Ni treatment, addition of 10 &mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>exogenous MT could significantly decrease the production rate of 

O<inf>2</inf><sup>-&middot;</sup>by 43.2%-50.2% and the relative electrolytic leakage by 

25.7%-31.6%, whereas increase the activities of CAT by 21.9%-33.7% and the soluble 

protein content by 82.6%-84.6%. The results suggested that application of exogenous 

melatonin could effectively alleviate the toxic effects of Ni on rice seedings. &copy;

Abstract:Wastewater treatment plants treating industrial wastewater and municipal 

wastewater may suffer from unexpected shock loads of high ammonia concentrations, which 

can lead to inhibition of biological nitrification and failure to meet the wastewater 

discharge standards. In order to solve the problem of failure to meet the standards, the 

effects of high loadings of free ammonia (FA) on the nitrification process were 

investigated in this work using a sequencing batch reactor (SBR). For such purpose, 

maximum specific degradation rates of ammonia, maximum specific formation rates of 

nitrate, specific oxygen uptake rates and abundances of nitrifying bacteria were 

monitored. The results showed that FA promoted nitrification activities at low 

concentrations and inhibited the activities when the FA concentration exceeded a certain 

value. In addition, high loading concentrations of FA resulted in long recovery times. 

When the FA concentration increased from 3.6 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to 8.1 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, the abundances of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) and 

nitrite-oxidizing bacteria (NOB) increased slightly, as shown by the fluorescence in situ 

hybridization tests. However, there were apparent decreases in the abundances of AOB and 

NOB when the concentration of FA was higher than 8.1 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. The 

critical FA inhibitory concentrations for AOB and NOB were 8.1 mg&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>and 6.6 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. It was found that the NOB flora were more 

sensitive than AOB to FA inhibition. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Decabromodiphenyl ether (BDE-209), a main ingredient of brominated flame 

retardants, has drawn more and more attention because of the pollution it caused in 

sediment. A pot experiment was conducted in a greenhouse to investigate the impact of 

Brevibacillus brevis and Enterococcus casselifavus on the enhancement of phytoremediation 

by Thalia dealbata, which is common in the river bank and was found to be an effective 

plant for BDE-209 removal. The concentration of organic acids, the amount of 

microorganisms and the ability of carbon utilization of soil microorganisms in different 

experimental groups were analyzed. The results showed that the removal rate of BDE-209 in 

the exogenous microbes containing groups were higher than that of the control. And B. 

brevis presented the highest enhancement of phytoremediation with the removal rate rising 

highest to 66% compared with the control (non-rhizosphere group 37.93% and no plant group 

39.27%) after 60 days. The removal of BDE-209 in sediment, quantity of microorganism, 

concentration of organic acids and the ability of carbon utilization of soil 

microorganisms in rhizosphere sediment were higher than those in non-rhizosphere 

sediment. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:PM<inf>2.5</inf>samples of four seasons were collected from Nov. 2014 to Aug. 

2015 at the site of Shengsi island in Zhoushan islands. Mercury (Hg) and speciated 

mercury concentrations in PM<inf>2.5</inf>samples were measured by Atomic Fluorescence 

Spectrometry (AFS-9130, China) after digestion with CEM Mars Xpress (PyNN Corporation, 

USA). The concentrations of organic carbon (OC) and elemental carbon (EC) in 

PM<inf>2.5</inf>samples were determined by thermal/optical carbon analyzer (DRI, USA). 

The results showed that the daily concentrations of PM<inf>2.5</inf>-bounded mercury 

(PBM) ranged from 0.02 to 1.25 ng&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>. Moreover, the mass content of 

PBM was (12.46&plusmn;18.79) &mu;g&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, which was higher than those in 

continental cities. ANOVA analysis result suggested that the highest average mass 

concentrations of PBM occurred in fall, sequentially followed by spring, winter and 

summer. Higher concentrations of PBM were in fall and spring, which might be related to 

biomass burning. In addition, RPM took the highest fraction of 53.1% in PBM, followed by 

HPM (27.3%) and EPM (19.7%), which might be resulted from the complicated composition of 

marine aerosols. The strong correlations among OC, EC and PBM indicated that carbonaceous 

composition may affect the transport of Hg in the atmosphere. The ratio of OC/EC 

represents atmospheric photo-oxidation capacity, so the positive correlation between 

OC/EC ratio and HPM indicated that HPM was resulted from atmospheric gas-particle 

transformation. The negative correlation between Char-EC/soot-EC and mercury species 

indicated that the atmospheric particle-bounded mercury might come mainly from the input 

of external mercury sources. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Four typical coal-fired power plants in Chongqing, representing two different 

boiler types (circulating fluidized bed boiler and pulverized coal boiler), were chosen 

to investigate mercury emission characteristics through a mercury mass balance method by 

analyzing mercury contents in all input and output raw materials in order to accurately 

estimate mercury emissions. The results showed coal with mercury concentrations ranging 

(80.77&plusmn;6.39)-(266.83&plusmn;4.71) &mu;g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>could be a 

significant contributor of input mercury in these four studied power plants. Most mercury 

output from these power plants entered into solid waste with high proportion of mercury 

entering the fly ash in CFB plants and entering the fly ash and desulfurization gypsum in 

PC plants. Mercury removal efficiencies of studied plants were in the range of 72.89%-

96.05%, and these efficiencies in CFB plants were higher than those in PC plants. The 

mercury emission factors for EF<inf>electricity</inf>and EF<inf>coal</inf>of these four 

plants were 4.66-29.47 &mu;g&middot;(kW&middot;h)<sup>-1</sup>and 8.55-71.77 

mg&middot;t<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. The mercury emission was also calculated to be 

6.13-429.17 g&middot;d<sup>-1</sup>. Mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants were 

associated with the content of mercury in coal, boiler type, generation load, pollution 

control equipment, and so on. To control the mercury emissions, more attention should be 

paid to improving the generation load, increasing the mercury removal efficiency of flue 

gas cleaning equipment, and strengthening the supervision of solid waste re-utilization.

Abstract:To reveal the effect of coupling process of wetting-drying and seasonal 

temperature on sediment nitrogen (N) minerization, surface sediment samples were 

collected from the water level fluctuating zone(WLFZ) of Pengxi River crossing two 

hydrological sections. The sediment samples were incubated under drying and submerging 

conditions at the controlled temperature. The result showed that NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-

</sup>-N and sand% in the sediment of higher altitude of water level (170 m) were higher 

than those in low altitudes (150 and 160 m), whereas contents of TN, NH<inf>4</inf><sup>

+</sup>-N and clay% and silt% in low altitudes were much higher. Generally, Net N 

mineralization rate and cumulation were lower in higher altitude of water level during 

the drying period and submerging period. The ammonification rate decreased rapidly at the 

initial stage of incubation (0-7 d), and then had no obvious change, and no significant 

differences among altitudes was observed. The nitrification rate at low altitude 

decreased with incubation time, while it had only a little change at higher altitude; The 

nitrification contributed a higher fraction of net N mineralization than ammonification. 

Net N mineralization rate and its cumulation were significantly higher in the drying 

period than in the submerging period, while net N mineralization rate decreased with 

incubation time at all altitudes. Net N mineralization cumulation tended to rise first 

and then declined at all altitudes of the drying period, whereas it was continuously 

decreasing at the low water level altitude during the submerging period. Net N nitrogen 

mineralization rate of the drying period was positively correlate to both the sediment 

organic matter content and its C&#8758;N ratio, while it showed a negative correlation in 

the submerging period(P&lt;0.001). Net N mineralization was sensitive to temperature 

increase (Q<inf>10</inf>&gt;1) in the drying period, while it was insensitive during the 

submerging period of low altitude (Q<inf>10</inf>&lt;1). Thus, the impact of temperature 

on Net N mineralization was relatively low in submerging period of winter and N was 

accumulated with low releasing rate. In contrast to winter, summer exhibited warmer and 

drying period, this two factors would lead to higher N mineralization rate and further 

induce the potential risk of eutrophication as N releasing into water body. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the atmosphere of the north suburb of 

Nanjing in December 2015 were determined by GC5000 online gas chromatography, and the 

main composition and characteristics of VOCs were analyzed by using the PMF receptor 

model sources of VOCs parsing. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 

human exposure analysis and evaluation method in the United States were used to evaluate 

Human health risk of benzene series. The results showed that there were 6 sources in the 

PMF mode. Natural gas leakage accounted for 32.05%, automobile exhaust accounted for 

18.99%, solvent use 13.67%, industrial emissions 2 13.20%, gasoline volatile 11.72%, and 

industrial emissions 1 (chemical type) 10.36%. The high value areas of the emission 

source were in accordance with the location of pollution sources surrounding the 

observation point. The B/T ratio was 0.74, which was at a relatively high level.The 

noncarcinogenic risk hazard quotient value HQ at 06:00 reached the highest value. HQ risk 

values were within the safe range specified by EPA. HQ of each source was as follows: 

automobile exhaust emissions 20.67&times;10<sup>-2</sup>, solvent use 

6.97&times;10<sup>-2</sup>, natural gas leakage 6.34&times;10<sup>-2</sup>. In the 

carcinogenic risk of benzene, automobile exhaust emissions was 4.11&times;10<sup>-

6</sup>, and natural gas leakage was 1.09&times;10<sup>-6</sup>, both were higher than 

the EPA specified safety threshold. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:8 surface sediments and 8 water samples were collected from the Daye Lake in 

August 2015. The 16 kinds of EPA control polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were 

analyzed by GC-MS. The results showed that the PAHs concentrations of surface sediments 

and water ranged from 35.94 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>to 2 032.73 ng&middot;g<sup>-

1</sup>and from 27.94 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to 242.95 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, with 

average contents of 940.61 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>and 107.77ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, 

respectively. The distribution of PAHs in surface sediments indicated that the contents 

in the center samples were higher than those in the bank samples, but the water showed 

nearly the opposite tendency. The 4-5 rings high molecular weight PAHs were the main 

components in the surface sediments, and the 2, 4 and 5 rings PAHs were given priority in 

water. Compared with the other domestic and oversea lakes, the PAHs pollution of the Daye 

Lake was at a moderate level. Source apportionment showed that the PAHs in surface 

sediments and water from the Daye Lake came from the combustion source, HWM-PAHs were the 

dominant part of the PAHs in the sediment, reflecting the sediment PAHs pollution under 

the effects of mining and smelting over a long period; All monomer PAHs and total PAHs 

content in sediment did not exceed the ERM and FEL limiting values, showing that there 

was no particularly serious ecological risk caused by PAHs in the surface sediments from 

the Daye Lake; the incremental lifetime cancer risks assessment showed that the uptake 

risk of PAHs in Daye Lake water through the ingestion and dermal absorption were both in 

the acceptable range recommended by the USEPA, but all sites had higher risk than the 

acceptable risk level recommended by the Sweden environmental protection agency and Royal 

society. The pollution of seven carcinogenic PAHs needs prevention and control. &copy;

Abstract:In December 2013, a lasting haze pollution event occurred in the Central and 

East regions of China. Here in this paper, using a single-particle soot photometer (SP2), 

we studied mass concentrations, mixing states, and size distributions of black carbon 

(BC) in this event. The results showed that BC mass concentration in Nanjing during the 

observation period was in the range of 1.01-14.05 &mu;g&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>with an 

average of 4.39 &mu;g&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>, showing the characteristics of double peaks 

for lighter pollution, andhigh in the nighttime and low in the daytime during heavier 

pollution. Using the relative coating thickness(D<inf>p</inf>/D<inf>c</inf>)to define 

mixing state of black carbon, diurnal variations were higher in early morning and noon 

when slightly polluted, and lower during rush hour, indicating the degree of BC ageing 

was deeper in the morning and afternoon, with fresher particles near the ground source 

emissions during rush hour. The relative coating thickness did not vary greatly 

throughout the day when heavily polluted, which was expected to be linked to regional 

pollutants and it also showed Gas-solid transformation under high relative humidity. The 

average mass and number size distribution had single peaking with the same BC volume-

equivalent diameter in different degrees of pollution, with the peak diameter at 100 nm 

for the number distribution when heavily polluted, at 91 nm when slightly polluted, and 

at 210 nm for the mass distribution regardless of the degree of pollution. We could find 

regional differences of BC sources by comparing the observed research worldwide. This 

study has very important reference value for the in-depth understanding of BC pollution 

in Yangtze River Delta. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:In order to study the distribution characteristics of organophosphorus 

pesticides (OPPs)in the soil of Jianghan plain,78 profile-soil samples from various depth 

and 7 surface-soil samples were collected in September,2015 in established groundwater 

monitoring field site, Jianghan plain. The OPPs concentrations were determined by gas 

chromatography with nitrogen-phosphorus detector(GC-NPD). The results showed that OPPs 

were widespread in our studied area. The OPPs concentrations of suface-soil samples 

ranged from 89.80 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>to 193.85 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>,with an 

average of 140.05 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, whereas the OPPs concentrations of profile-

soil samples ranged from 19.81 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>to 138.28 ng&middot;g<sup>-

1</sup>,with an average of 40.99 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>. The main ingredients of OPPs 

in surface and profile soil samples were methamidophos, omethoate, diazinon and 

quinalphos,and the residual amount of 10 kinds of OPPs had posed a threat to agricultural 

products according to the America soil pesticide residue limits standards. The horizontal 

distribution of OPPs concentration in profile soil followed the order of nearby river 

farm area&gt;nearby river area&gt;farm area, namely GS1-1&gt;GS4&gt;GS2&gt;GS3. while the 

vertical distribution mostly decreased at first and then increased with increasing depth. 

The distribution characteristics of OPPs were also influenced by many factors, such as 

application amount of OPPs, the adsorption and desorption actions of soil, vertical 

movement of groundwater, the terrain environment in the study area, and the concentration 

of soil organic matters. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:This study aimed to identify the function of polyphosphate kinase gene (ppk) in 

phosphorus removal. With the Red system, the target DNA with the homologous short arms 

was amplified in the plasmid pKD4. Then the target DNA was transformed into E. coli 

ATCC25922 which already had the suicide plasmid pKD46 by electroporation. The plasmid 

pCP20 was transformed into the recombinant strains to delete the kanamycin resistance 

gene. With the screening by negative resistance, together with verification using 

positive and negative primers, the construction of ppk gene deletion strain E. 

coli/ppk<sup>-</sup>Kan<sup>-</sup>was confirmed. The growth characteristics of both the 

wild-type strain and the mutant strain were determined, and the phosphate accumulating 

characteristics were compared when cultured in the phosphate luxuriant medium after 

induced in the phosphate lacking medium. Also the phosphate accumulating characteristics 

of the two strains were compared after cultured in the anaerobic and aerobic alternating 

conditions for 5 times. The results showed that the ppk deletion strain E. 

coli/ppk<sup>-</sup>Kan<sup>-</sup>was successfully constructed. There was no growth 

difference between the mutant strain and the wild-type strain. But in the first 4 hours 

of log phase, the mutant strain grew faster than the wild-type strain. And 8h later, when 

both strains were in stationary phase, the mutant strain grew slower than the wild type, 

indicating that ppk affected the growth of the bacteria. Cultured in the phosphate 

lacking medium and the phosphate luxuriant medium, the mutant strain's ability of 

phosphate accumulating didn't decrease in spite of having no ppk gene. After 5 times 

induction, the amounts of phosphorus in both strains were about 1%-2%. The phosphate 

amounts in the cells did not increase with increasing inducing times. Polyphosphate or 

PHB was detected neither at anaerobic phase nor at the aerobic phase. It indicated that 

the deletion of ppk did not affect the phosphorus removal in wastewater treatment 

process, and the ppk gene did not show the function of phosphorus removal. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:The objective of this experiment was to investigate the influence of 

SO<inf>3</inf><sup>2-</sup>dosage, pH value, initial perfluorooctane sulfonate(PFOS)

concentration as well as coexisting substances on the degradation and defluorination of 

PFOS by VUV-SO<inf>3</inf><sup>2-</sup>process. The results indicated that the increase 

of SO<inf>3</inf><sup>2-</sup>dosage could lead to rise in the concentration of active 

species hydrated electron(e<inf>aq</inf><sup>-</sup>) and thus enhance the degradation 

and defluorination of PFOS. As the concentration of SO<inf>3</inf><sup>2-</sup>increased 

from 1 mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to 20 mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, the degradation and 

defluorination rates of PFOS increased from 45% and 40% to 97% and 63%, respectively. The 

degradation and defluorination of PFOS were also enhanced with the increment of the 

solution pH values, and the defluorination was more sensitive to the pH values. In 

addition, more PFOS was degraded with the increase of initial PFOS mass concentration, 

although the degradation and defluorination rates of PFOS were reduced. When the initial 

PFOS mass concentration changed from 1 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to 50 mg&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>, the degradation amount of PFOS after four hrs increased by about 50 times, 

probably due to the higher utilization proportion of e<inf>aq</inf><sup>-</sup>at high 

pollutants concentration. Last but not least, the influence of co-existing substances, 

Cl<sup>-</sup>and HCO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>, on PFOS degradation could be neglected, 

whereas their effects on defluorination were observed. Defluorination of PFOS was 

enhanced with the increased Cl<sup>-</sup>concentration, however, increased first and 

then decreased with the increment of HCO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>concentration. It was 

also found that the presence of humic acid(HA) lowered degradation as well as 

defluorination of PFOS owing to the blockage of effective UV light and trapping of active 

species for photochemical reaction. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:The contents of 8 heavy metal elements (Sr, Ni, Fe, Cr, Cu, Mn, Pb, Zn) and the 

lead &amp; strontium isotope composition of soil profile of woodland in Quanzhou city 

were analyzed by AAS and ICP-MS, respectively. A modified BCR four-step sequential 

extraction procedure was carried out to obtain the speciation fractionation of heavy 

metals in the soil profile from 4 stations. The results of the heavy metal elements and 

the speciation fractionation of heavy metals in the soil profile showed that the heavy 

metal pollution in the woodland in Quanzhou was relatively light, and the main pollution 

factor was Sr. The non-residue state of Pb was the highest, leading to the highest 

activity. The result of Nemero comprehensive pollution index showed that Sr in the depth 

of 0-60 cm was at heavy pollution level. The results of the RSP showed that the activity 

of Pb was the highest. The results of EF showed that Pb, Sr, Mn and Zn had exogenous 

sources. Factor analysis showed that the main sources of heavy metals were the compound 

pollution of agricultural activities, natural resources, and the vehicle exhaust. 

Composition of Pb isotopic ratios showed that, Pb in soil profile of woodland in Quanzhou 

was from vehicle exhaust and parent material. The contribution rates of the two sources 

in the soil profile were calculated by using the two-mixed model. The contribution rates 

of parent material and vehicle exhaust were 85.14%(62.53%-98.36%) and 14.86%(1.640%-

37.47%) on average, respectively. Strontium isotope tracing results showed that the main 

sources of strontium were also vehicle exhaust and parent material. Coupling both Pb and 

Sr isotope ratios agreed with the above mentioned results. &copy; 2017, Science Press.

Abstract:Effect of application of sewage sludge compost on the emission of greenhouse gas 

from soil was investigated by analyzing the dynamic characteristics and emission factor 

of CO<inf>2</inf>, CH<inf>4</inf>and N<inf>2</inf>O in soil after spiking two different 

composts (A: compost with biochar, B: compost without biochar) with varying fertilizing 

amount into soil. The results indicated that emissions of CO<inf>2</inf>and 

CH<inf>4</inf>mainly occurred in the plant growth period with low fertilizer amount of 

biomass charcoal compost reducing CO<inf>2</inf>emissions, and high application content 

increasing CO<inf>2</inf>emissions. CH<inf>4</inf>emission fluxes showed negative values, 

indicating that soil could adsorb CH<inf>4</inf>, and the adsorbing amount for control 

was significantly higher than those for other treatments (P&lt;0.01). The absorbing 

amount in treatment A increased with the fertilizing amount (P&lt;0.05). N<inf>2</inf>O 

emissions mainly occurred at the germination and seedling stages, and emission fluxes 

increased with the fertilizing amount (P&lt;0.01). N<inf>2</inf>O was considered as the 

main generated greenhouse gas during agricultural process with sludge compost, and its 

emission factor from sludge compost soil was 1.02%-1.90% (A compost) and 1.28%-2.93% (B 

compost), respectively. Biochar could significantly reduce the carbon emission, as the 

total greenhouse gas released from soil with biochar compost was 19.49% to 35.56% less 

than that in soil without biochar, which was more obvious for N<inf>2</inf>O emission 

reduction (compared with CH<inf>4</inf>mitigation). &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Biochar application to soils is currently considered as a means of mitigating 

climate change by sequestering C, which withdraws CO<inf>2</inf>from the atmosphere and 

consequently influences the trend of global climate change. However, only a few studies 

have been done on surface albedo variations on farmland, it might be true that the 

application of biochar to soil could induce a radiative forcing by changing the surface 

albedo. Based on this background, this study aiming at the characterization of seasonal 

changes in albedo on the farmland both with plants and without plants, and its effect on 

soil temperature, soil moisture, soil respiration and soil organic carbon fractions. 

There were 3 major treatments in the experiment with 3 repetition of each major 

treatment, namely, CK (the control treatment), BC0.5 (biochar applied at 0.5 kg&middot;

(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;a)<sup>-1</sup>) and BC4.5 (biochar applied at 4.5 kg&middot;

(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;a)<sup>-1</sup>). Each major treatment contained 2 sub-treatments, 

which were crop cultivation (+) and non-cultivation (-). The experiment results showed 

that in the early stage of crop growth (maize seedling stage to jointing stage, wheat 

seedling stage to winter period), the surface albedo of BC4.5+ and BC0.5+ significantly 

decreased compared with CK+(P&lt;0.05). The biggest surface albedo decline rates of 

BC4.5+ and BC0.5+ in winter wheat season were 23.7%, 17.9% and 44.5%, 44.9% in summer 

maize season. The leaf area index of each treatment was remarkably correlated with the 

surface albedo. The shadow produced by the development of crop canopy structure would 

cover the change of surface color induced by the input of biochar. Under the condition of 

bare land, the surface albedo of biochar treatment was significantly decreased compared 

with the control treatment(P&lt;0.05). Compared with the control treatments, the soil 

CO<inf>2</inf>flux of the biochar treatments was significantly increased(P&lt;0.05). With 

the extension of time, the growth rate of soil CO<inf>2</inf>flux of biochar treatment 

was decreased gradually. The increase from BC4.5+ to CK+ was gradually reduced from 

276.7% to 36.1%, and the increase of BC4.5- from to CK- was significantly reduced from 

163.5% to 39.8%. The increase of soil CO<inf>2</inf>flux could be derived from the 

mineralization of the readily decomposed carbon fractions in the biochar-soil system. The 

decrease of surface albedo caused by the input of biochar had no direct effect on soil 

respiration, and the input of biochar could reduce the temperature sensitivity of soil 

respiration. This result could provide a foundation for the verification of the chemical 

and biological stability of biochar. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Sediment cores from Douhe reservoir in Tangshan City were sampled in August 

2013, in order to evaluate the mercury (Hg) pollution degree and its possible sources. 

Agriculture soils surrounding the Douhe reservoir and sediments from an upstream 

reservoir (Daheiting) were also collected. Total mercury (THg), methylmercury (MeHg), 

dissolved mercury in pore water (DHg) and organic matter (OM) in sediment of Douhe 

reservoir were analyzed, while, only THg in the agriculture soils and upstream reservoir 

sediments was determined. Finally, the geoaccumulation index method was applied to 

evaluate the Hg pollution status in soils and reservoir sediments. The results showed 

that THg content in sediment of Douhe reservoir ranged from 19 to 97 ng&middot;g<sup>-

1</sup>. dw, MeHg (dw) from 0.02 to 1.27 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, and the contents of 

both THg and MeHg were higher in the upper layers than the deeper layers, indicating that 

Hg in sediments was increasing in recent years by the exogenetic loadings. THg (dw) in 

soils offshore the Douhe reservoir, which is close to a large coal-fired power plant, 

averaged at 22 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>. Among the three sediment cores of Douhe 

reservoir, the central point had the highest THg, followed by the western site, and the 

eastern site had the lowest THg. While, THg content (dw) in sediments of Daheiting 

reservoir was much higher, with a mean of 176 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>. Combining all the 

above information, we concluded that Hg in Douhe reservoir was mainly derived from the 

Daheiting reservoir and the mercury atmospheric deposition from the nearby coal-fired 

power plant contributed a less content. THg and MeHg in the sediments of Douhe reservoir 

were positively correlated with OM, indicating that OM in sediments had good ability of 

adsorbing THg and MeHg, and also played an important role in Hg methylation. The 

geoaccumulation index (I<inf>geo</inf>) showed that the Hg pollution status deceased in 

this order: central of Daheting, Daba of Daheting, central of Douhe, western of Douhe, 

eastern of Douhe, soils surrounding Douhe. Central and western sites in Douhe belonged to 

moderate pollution and the eastern site belonged to slight pollution. While, sediments of 

Daheiting reservoir, affected by the iron ore mining activities, were in the moderate and 

strong pollution status. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Fertilizer and water management are two key factors for rice growth. A better 

understanding of the carbon (C) cycling in paddy soil requires investigation into the 

input characteristics and distribution dynamics of photosynthesized carbon in rice-soil 

system. We grew rice (Zhongzao 39) in PVC pots and used the<sup>13</sup>C-

CO<inf>2</inf>continuous labeling method to quantify the allocation of photosynthesized 

carbon in rice-soil system under two regimes (Drying-rewetting vs. continuous watering) 

and N fertilization (250 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>vs. no addition). The results showed 

that nitrogen fertilizer application increased rice shoot biomass and the amount of C and 

N, but had no significant influence on rice root biomass. Thus, nitrogen fertilizer 

application decreased rice biomass root/shoot ratio significantly. Drying-rewetting with 

N fertilizer treatment resulted in higher total C and N amount by 22% and 33%, 

respectively, in the shoot, and by 36% and 44%, respectively in the root than continuous 

watering with nitrogen fertilizer treatment. These results indicated that nitrogen 

fertilizer application promoted the growth of rice shoot. Nitrogen fertilizer application 

significantly increased the<sup>13</sup>C content in rice shoot by 32%-83% over the 

control without N addition. Nitrogen fertilizer application also increased 

the<sup>13</sup>C recovery in rice shoot by 6%-32%, but decreased that in the root by 

18%-59%. Pertaining to water effect, drying-rewetting with N application increased the 

amount of<sup>13</sup>C in rice shoot and root. However, without N addition, the amount 

and the recovery of<sup>13</sup>C in shoot dropped by 10.3 mg&middot;pot<sup>-1</sup>and 

12%, respectively, compared with the continuous watering treatment. The root, on the 

other hand, recorded increases in both the amount and the recovery of<sup>13</sup>C by 

1.9 mg&middot;pot<sup>-1</sup>and 57%, respectively. Furthermore, the deposition of 

assimilated C into rhizosphere-soil increased by both the individual and the interactive 

effects of N fertilizer application and drying-rewetting treatment. Thus, combining N 

fertilizer and drying-rewetting water management led to more increased allocation and 

deposition of photosynthesized carbon in soil-rice system compared with combined 

continuous flooding and N application. This study was able to quantify the partitioning 

and allocation of rice photosynthesized carbon into different plant and soil pools under 

different water and N fertilizer treatments, and can serve as a useful guide for better 

water and nutrient management practices in paddy-rice production that can achieve both 

sustainable high yield and sequestration of more C within the paddy soil system. &copy;

Abstract:To illuminate the spatial distribution of bacterial aerosols produced by 

fountain, sprinkler test was conducted in this study. Escherichia coli NK5449 was used as 

the test strain, and bacterial aerosols were sampled by Anderson six-stage air sampler at 

different sites around the sprinkler. The concentration and particle size distribution of 

bacterial aerosols and the correlation between droplet diameter and bacterial aerosols 

concentration were analyzed. The results showed that the concentration of bacterial 

aerosols ranged from (38&plusmn;15) CFU&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>to (676&plusmn;92) 

CFU&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>in the space of 0.75 m to 1.75 m from the ground and 0.5 m to 3 

m away from the sprinkler. The bacterial aerosol concentration decreased along with the 

increase of the height and the distance between the sampling site and the sprinkler, and 

had significant negative correlation with droplet diameter (P&lt;0.05). With the increase 

of the distance to sprinkler, the proportion of bacterial aerosol particles with size of 

larger than 4.7 &mu;m decreased at first and increased subsequently; while the proportion 

of bacterial aerosol particles with size between 2.1 and 4.7 &mu;m increased firstly and 

then decreased. The bacterial aerosol particles mainly existed in the part with size 

between 1.1 and 4.7 &mu;m at sampling sites more than 0.5 m away from the sprinkler. It 

indicated that bacterial aerosols with small size may be inhaled by people far away from 

the fountain, and the risk should not be ignored. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:In order to accurately evaluate the comprehensive ecotoxicity of domestic 

wastewater and the toxicity reduction efficiency of different treatment processes, 

standardized assays focusing on Vibrio fischeri, SOS/umu test and yeast estrogen screen 

were applied. Simultaneously, male zebrafish was used to address the mode of action of 

endocrine disrupting effects of wastewater and reclaim water on aquatic life. Results of 

this study indicated that the influent was severely polluted: highly acute toxicity, 

genotoxicity and estrogenicity were observed. After the secondary biological treatment, 

the above toxicities were significantly reduced, making the water quality improved. 

However, the estrogencity of secondary effluent was detected at 1.89 ng&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>, which still posed potential risk on the aquatic life in receiving water. In 

addition, the up-regulation of estrogen receptor (esr1) and vitellogenin (vtg1) in the 

livers of zebrafish was observed after exposure to 2.5 times concentrated wastewaters, 

which demonstrated that wastewater modulates hormonal activities of aquatic life by 

disturbing target genes expression. Moreover, the slight down-regulation of esr1 was 

observed in the gonads. These observations reflect that the evaluation of biological 

toxic effect should be analyzed in different tissues or organs, so that more 

comprehensive information about the adverse effects of wastewaters on aquatic life can be 

obtained. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Biochemical methane potential experiments were conducted to investigate the 

effects of organic loading rate on the performance of anaerobic digesters with vinegar 

residues. According to the comparisons of methane production and liquid phase 

compositions, as well as thermogravimetry, X-ray Diffraction and infrared spectroscopy 

analyses, the conclusions could be drawn that: (1) Lower organic loading rate was better 

to mitigate the accumulation of VFAs and pH decrease during the hydrolysis and 

acidification of organic matters, which consequently improved methane production. When 

the inoculum to substrate ratio was 1:1[organic loading rate of 1.78 g&middot;

(L&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>, pH=7.60], the cumulative methane production was the highest, 

reaching 2249.7 mL, and the performance of the digesters was stable. The VFAs content 

increased with the increase of the organic loading rate, leading to the suppression and 

further the stop of methane production. And when the inoculum to substrate ratio was 1:4 

[organic loading rate of 7.12 g&middot;(L&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>, pH=5.52], the 

simultaneous generation of acetate and lactic acids could be achieved at 8000 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>and 2650 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. (2) As vinegar 

residues were short-range ordered with microcrystalline structure or mainly contained 

amorphous substances, they were more biodegradable than feedstocks such as corn stalk. 

During the anaerobic digestion processes, the degradation rates of lignin, cellulose and 

hemicellulose increased with the decrease of organic loading rate. &copy; 2017, Science

Abstract:Based on the online measurements of VOCs of high pollution process at the 

university site in winter, VOCs' characteristics and species at different levels of haze 

pollution were analyzed. Fifty-five VOCs were detected during sampling. 

&sum;<inf>55</inf>VOCs concentrations ranged between 25.5&times;10<sup>-9</sup>-

1320.3&times;10<sup>-9</sup>(avg&plusmn;SD, 240&times;10<sup>-

9</sup>&plusmn;181&times;10<sup>-9</sup>). Toluene and xylene were the major pollutants 

during high pollution process, the concentrations of which were higher than those of 

industrial area. The university site shared a similar VOC composition with that of 

industrial area, which suggested that it might be influenced by the surrounding 

industries. VOCs species exhibited high concentrations in nighttime while low 

concentrations in daytime. The ozone concentrations were on the contrary. Aromatic 

hydrocarbons were predominant with a high percentage of contribution (70.0%) to OFP 

(ozone formation potential). Alkenes and alkynes were the second highest group (16.7%). 

The OFP of VOCs was 2078.2&times;10<sup>-9</sup>under the west-south wind direction, 

about 4 times higher than the value under other wind directions (505.8&times;10<sup>-

9</sup>). Aromatic hydrocarbons exhibited a predominant contribution to OFP at different 

levels of haze pollution in this area, among which, Toluene and xylene contributed more 

than 50% to OFP. The newest version of EPA PMF model was used to identify the major 

source of VOCs and evaluate their contributions. Gasoline sources and vehicle exhaust, 

refinery and petroleum products, solvent use and organic synthetic materials were the 

identified VOC sources in the study area, contributing 33.1%, 31.5%, 30.5%, and 4.9%, 

respectively to the &sum;<inf>55</inf>VOCs concentrations. &copy; 2017, Science Press.

Abstract:To explore the short-term impact of biodegradable organic matter on the 

activities of different functional microbes in autotrophic partial nitrification granular 

sludge (PNG), the variations of both nitrogen transformation performance and dissolved 

oxygen (DO) uptake of PNG were investigated in this study, by carrying out successive 

batch tests with and without the organics stressing. The results showed that the higher 

the C/N ratio, the lower the specific nitrite accumulation rate of q

(NO<inf>2</inf><sup>-</sup>-N). Meanwhile, the increase of heterotrophic bacteria (HeB) 

activities caused the fast DO uptake by PNG, which could effectively suppress nitrite 

oxidizing bacteria (NOB) with the low oxygen affinity. When inorganic substrate culture 

was employed in the following phase, both HeB and NOB showed low activities, with 

significant increase in q(NO<inf>2</inf><sup>-</sup>-N). In short, the adverse effects of 

biodegradable organic matter on the performance of PNG system were partially reversible, 

which could benefit to enhance the advantage of ammonium oxidizing bacteria (AOB) and 

improve the stability of partial nitrification reaction. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:Effects of pH and complexing agents on Sb(V) adsorption onto birnessite and 

ferrihydrite surface were investigated. The results indicated that birnessite and 

ferrihydrite had strong ability to adsorb Sb(V). The removal efficiencies of Sb(V) by 

birnessite and ferrihydrite were dependent on the initial pH in solution. The removal 

efficiency of Sb(V) increased with the decrease of solution pH. At pH 5.0, the removal 

efficiencies, adsorption rate and adsorption capacity were better than those at pH 7.0 or 

9.0. The adsorption process of Sb(V) on birnessite and ferrihydrite could be well 

described by the pseudo-second-order model. The Langmuir model best described the 

adsorption behavior of Sb(V) by birnessite and ferrihydrite at pH 5.0. The presence of 

citric acid or EDTA had significant effect on Sb(V) adsorption onto birnessite and 

ferrihydrite. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:A total of 22 water samples collected from Luomahu Lake were determined using 

high performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry(HPLC-MS/MS) to evaluate 

the pollution level, spatial distribution and ecological risk of 32 PPCPs. 23 PPCPs were 

detected in surface water of Luomahu Lake and the total concentrations of 22 samples were 

892-1 536 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. The concentration of norfloxacin (256-707 

ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>) was the highest among the detected PPCPs, followed by 

ketoprofen (85-438 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>), acesulfame (101-290 ng&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>) and naproxen (1.9-112 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>). Spatial differences were found 

in concentrations of PPCPs in various sampling sites. Concentrations of PPCPs in 

northeast of Luomahu Lake were higher than those of southwest. Concentration of PPCPs in 

Fangtinghe River was high and that of Zhangshanzha River was relatively low. The risk 

assessment of 13 pharmaceutical PPCPs showed that risk quotients(RQs) of norfloxacin were 

0.26-0.72, posing medial risk to aquatic ecosystem. Gemifibrozil posed low ecological 

risks with RQs&gt;0.01 in most sampling sites. RQs of other 11 PPCPs were less than 0.01, 

posing no ecological risks. The combined risk quotients of 12 PPCPs in water of Luomahu 

Lake were 0.29-0.75, indicating that those compounds posed an medial risk to aquatic 

ecosystem. Human health risk assessment showed that the RQs were less than one for 6 

selected PPCPs, indicating that these compounds did not appear to pose an appreciable 

risk to human health by potential environmental exposure from drinking water. &copy;

Abstract:A rapid recombinant human thyroid (hTR) gene yeast bioassay was used to evaluate 

the effect of dissolved humic acid on thyroid receptor antagonistic activity of 

ZnCl<inf>2</inf>. The concentration of bio-available zinc after its reaction with 

dissolved humic acids was measured by anodic stripping voltammetry(ASV). Furthermore, the 

reaction mechanism of humic acid and zinc was investigated by three-dimensional 

excitation-emission matrix fluorescence spectroscopy (3DEEM). The results revealed that 

ZnCl<inf>2</inf>demonstrated strong thyroid receptor antagonistic activity, and the 

concentration inhibiting 20% of the maximum effect of ZnCl<inf>2</inf>was 

1.70&times;10<sup>-5</sup>mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. The thyroid receptor antagonistic 

activity of ZnCl<inf>2</inf>was reduced by 30%-50% after the reaction of dissolved humic 

acids. The results of ASV showed that the concentration of bio-available zinc was 

decreased after the reaction of dissolved humic acids, the result was similar to that of 

bioassay test. The thyroid receptor antagonistic activity of the mixed solution of humic 

acid and ZnCl<inf>2</inf>was increased after UV radiation treatment, however it was still 

lower than the antagonistic activity induced by ZnCl<inf>2</inf>. The results of 3DEEM 

showed that ZnCl<inf>2</inf>could reduce the fluorescence peak intensity of humic acid, 

which could intuitively characterize the interaction between humic acid and 

ZnCl<inf>2</inf>. The above results can provide basic data and theoretical support for 

zinc toxicity study in aquatic environment and the establishment of water quality 

criteria for znic. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:The influence of Cd on the degradation of nonylphenol (NP) by P.aeruginosa SH1 

was investigated in this study. The investigation revealed that biomass of the strain was 

significantly declined with the increase of Cd<sup>2+</sup>concentration. The biomass was 

declined by 27.1% in the presence of 10 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>Cd<sup>2+</sup>after 24 

h. The addition of Cd<sup>2+</sup>had a great influence on adsorption of NP by the 

strain. As for the effect of living stain, adsorption by P.aeruginosa SH1 cells was 

stimulated at low concentrations of Cd<sup>2+</sup>(0.5 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>), while 

inhibited at higher levels(&ge;5 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>). As for inactivation of 

microbes, adsorption by cells was stimulated at higher concentrations, but was only 

slightly influenced at low levels. The results showed that the intracellular enzymes had 

much greater degradation rate than the living cells. Different concentrations of 

Cd<sup>2+</sup>had different effects on bacteria and intracellular enzyme degradation of 

NP separately. The degradation efficiency when using intracellular enzymes and bacteria 

was inhibited at higher levels of Cd<sup>2+</sup>and the intracellular enzyme inhibition 

was more significant. Degradation by cells was stimulated at low concentrations of 

Cd<sup>2+</sup>, but no significant impact was found on that by intracellular enzymes. 

The degradation process of NP by intracellular enzymes of the strain conformed to the 

first-order kinetic model. The highest reaction rate was achieved when the concentrations 

of Cd<sup>2+</sup>was 0.5 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>and the half-life of this substrate was 

5.5 h. However, the degradation process of NP by the strain did not conform to the 

first-order kinetic model. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:The utilization of straw resources is of great significance to agricultural 

environmental protection and sustainable agricultural development. Based on the isolated 

15 high-efficient cellulose degrading bacteria in the laboratory, the composite 

inoculants (JFB-1) which can effectively degrade crop straw were screened, and the 

effects of straw composts with the composite inoculants on soil carbon and nitrogen 

contents and enzyme activity were studied. The results showed that the composite 

inoculants could accelerate straw decomposition for 1-2 d during single fermentation 

period, and the organic matter contents in straw composts reached 403.5-515.1 

g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, while the ratio of carbon and nitrogen decreased from 10.53 to 

15.30. The pot experiments found that the application effects of rice straw composts were 

generally better than those of corresponding asparagus straw composts. Compared with the 

control compost of rice straw, when the application amount of rice straw compost using 

the composite inoculants was 150 g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, the contents of soil organic 

matter and total nitrogen increased by 33.5% and 7.3%, and soil urease and cellulase 

activities increased by 16.7% and 30.8%, respectively. Compared with no fertilization 

treatment, the application of straw composts could improve soil microbial community 

structure, and increase microbial diversity indices. When the application amount of rice 

straw compost using the composite inoculants was 100 g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, the 

biomass of common Chinese cabbage cultivated for 30 d increased by 46.4% compared to the 

control compost of rice straw. These results indicated that the composite inoculants have 

great application potential in straw composts. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Uptake of nitrogen(N) and phosphorus(P) and their purification capacity for five 

native submerged macrophytes were investigated in laboratory simulated hydrostatic 

conditions, including Hydrilla verticillata, Vallisneria natans, Ceratophyllum demersum, 

Myriophyllum spicatum, Potamogeton maackianus. The results indicated that the moisture 

contents of different submerged macrophytes were almost the same before and after the 

test,with the range of 89.8%-92.0%. The net accumulated biomass changed from 1.52 

g&middot;m<sup>-2</sup>to 12.92 g&middot;m<sup>-2</sup>among different submerged 

macrophytes, and the highest net accumulated biomass of Hydrilla verticillata was 8.5 

times higher than the lowest plant of Potamogeton maackianus. The N and P contents of 

five submerged macrophytes ranged from 26.54 to 34.44g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>and from 

2.54 to 4.01g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, respectively, and the N and P contents of 

Ceratophyllum demersum were relatively high. Total N and P removal efficiency of 

different submerged macrophyte treatments had ranges of 63.8%-83.1% and 49.2%-70.8%, 

significantly higher than those of the CK treatment (39.9% and 36.9%), respectively, and 

the removal efficiency decreased in the order of Hydrilla verticillata&gt;Ceratophyllum 

demersum&gt;Vallisneria natans&gt;Myriophyllum spicatum&gt;Potamogeton maackianus. Total 

N and P removal efficiencies of different submerged macrophyte treatments were 

significantly correlated with net accumulated biomass, with correlation coefficients of 

0.994 (P&lt;0.01) and 0.996 (P&lt;0.01). The contribution of direct N and P uptake to 

different submerged macrophytes had the ranges of 1.5%-13.3% and 2.2%-13.2%, and the 

synergism contribution (deducting self-purification capacity of water) of different 

submerged macrophytes ranged 22.5%-29.9% and 10.1%-20.6%, indicating that the synergistic 

effect of submerged macrophytes purification was much more significant than the direct 

uptake effect in the process of water purification. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Land use change in river basin is one of the most significant factors that 

influence river water quality. Based on remote sensing images and river water quality 

data of Taizi River Basin, partial least squares (PLS) model was applied to explore the 

relationship between water quality and land use patterns at sub-watershed scale. In this 

study, PLS model was established by using the percentage of area of land use patterns 

from seven different sub-watersheds as the variables and the concentrations of four water 

quality parameters as the observations. The established model was further tested with the 

data from other sub-watersheds in Taizi River Basin. The results indicated that total 

nitrogen (TN) and nitrate (NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>) were significantly associated with 

land use types in Taizi River Basin with determination coefficient (R<sup>2</sup>) 

greater than 0.62. As for chloride (Cl<sup>-</sup>) and sulfate (SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-

</sup>), measured values and fitted values had a relatively low fitting precision 

(R<sup>2</sup>&lt;0.5), which meant land use pattern was not the main factor affecting 

the concentrations of Cl<sup>-</sup>and SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>in river water. 

Meanwhile, river water quality had a strong correlation with the percentage of area of 

unused land at the sub-basin scale (influence coefficient &gt;0.24), although unused land 

area in the Taizi river basin was small. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:In the present study, human hair samples were collected in Chongqing to detect 

the concentrations of heavy metals including Cd, Cu, Ni, Pb and Zn by flame atomic 

absorption spectrophotometry. Meanwhile, the relationship between the content of heavy 

metals and age, gender and smoking habits was also analyzed, and the potential sources of 

the heavy metals in human hair were understood through correlation analysis and principal 

component analysis. The results showed that the mean concentrations of Cd, Cu, Ni, Pb and 

Zn were 3.1, 24.3, 9.7, 42.8 and 209.6 &mu;g&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, respectively in urban 

areas, while the mean contents were 0.9, 15.8, 5.6, 15.2 and 173.4 &mu;g&middot;g<sup>-

1</sup>, respectively in rural area. The residents living in urban areas exhibited 

significantly higher concentrations than those in rural area, revealing the same heavy 

metal pattern with that in soils (t-test, P&lt;0.01). No obvious trend was observed 

between the contents of heavy metals and age, except that the contents of Cu and Zn were 

increasing with the growth of age. Significantly higher concentrations of Cd and Pb were 

both observed in male hair and smokers than those in female and non-smokers, respectively 

in urban and rural areas (P&lt;0.01). Similar correlation patterns among Cd, Cu, Ni and 

Pb were found both in urban and rural areas. According to principal component analysis, 

Cu, Ni and Pb contaminations had similar sources in urban areas, whereas Cd, Ni and Pb 

had similar sources in rural area. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Sludge retention time(SRT) is a crucial parameter to influence the stability of 

biological wastewater treatment systems. Especially, the effects of SRT on yeast-

wastewater treatment remain unclear. In this study, mixtures of yeast strains were 

applied to treat oil-containing wastewater in sequencing batch reactors(SBR) and the 

effects of sludge retention time(SRT as 5, 10, 20, 40 d) on the removal efficiency of 

pollutants, contents and composition of extracellular polymeric substances(EPS), yeast 

cells settleability and yeast communities were investigated. The results showed that the 

recommended SRT was 5-10 d for the yeast-SBR system; Higher SRT led to decrease of COD 

removal rate and content of EPS; the tightly-bounded EPS was the major one which 

consisted of polysaccharides. SRT of 5-40 d had no significant effects on the SVI of 

yeast cells, however, longer SRT (&gt;20 d) resulted in the increase of mycelial cells 

and a tendency to produce the filamentous bulking. In the continuous operation of SBR, 

three extraneous yeast strains capable of utilizing or degrading oil were identified in 

the systems under the short and long SRT. To conclude, shorter SRT was favorable for the 

system stability in treating oil-containing wastewater by yeasts. &copy; 2017, Science

Abstract:To investigate the perennial effect of environment adjustment layers on the 

interior environment and nitrogen transformation in anaerobic bioreactor landfills, three 

sets of simulated anaerobic bioreactor landfills and two kinds of environment adjustment 

layers of mineralized refuse with heavy calcium carbonate (R2) and mineralized refuse 

with natural zeolites (R3) were designed and established. The degradation and 

transformation of nitrogen in waste and leachate had been monitored for 390 days. The 

results showed that, the value orders of pH, alkalinity, oxidation reduction potential 

and moisture content (MS) were pH(R2)&gt;pH(R3)&gt;pH(R1), alkalinity (R2)&gt;alkalinity 

(R3)&gt;alkalinity (R1), Eh(R2)&lt;Eh(R3)&lt;Eh(R1) and MS(R3)&gt;MS(R2)&gt;MS(R1). In 

R1, R2 and R3, the degradation rates of total nitrogen, ammonia nitrogen, nitrate 

nitrogen in waste were 79.2%, 82.3% and 88.5%, 48.3%, 60.1% and 67.7%, 38.5%, 44.2% and 

53.4%, respectively. Concentration comparison results of total nitrogen, ammonia nitrogen 

and nitrate nitrogen in leachate were TN(R3)&lt;TN(R2)&lt;TN(R1), NH<inf>4</inf><sup>

calcium carbonate and mineralized refuse with natural zeolites could long-term adjust and 

optimize the interior environment of anaerobic bioreactor landfills for the degradation 

and conversion of nitrogen. Mineralized waste with natural zeolite could not only promote 

the degradation and transformation of nitrogen components in waste and leachate, but also 

control the accumulation of ammonia nitrogen through leachate recirculation. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:Catalytic combustion is an efficient way to remove soot particulates from 

automobile exhausts. A series of rare earth pyrochlore oxides 

La<inf>2</inf>Sn<inf>1.8</inf>TM<inf>0.2</inf>O<inf>7</inf>(TM=Sn, Mn, Fe, Co, Cu) were 

prepared with CTAB-assisted sol-gel method. The products were characterized by 

XRD,N<inf>2</inf>Adsorption-Desorption, SEM, FT-IR, H<inf>2</inf>-TPR and PL techniques. 

Their catalytic activity for soot oxidation was investigated by TPO under tight 

conditions in both O<inf>2</inf>and NO+O<inf>2</inf>atmospheres. After calcination at 

900&#8451;, the as-synthesized oxides with pure pyrochlore phase displayed nanospheres 

with diameter of 30-60 nm and relatively large surface areas. The partial substitution of 

Sn with transition metals largely influenced the reduction behavior of pyrochlores 

especially on the low temperature range in H<inf>2</inf>-TPR profiles, which was due to 

the interactions between Sn and transition metals. The improved oxygen mobility might be 

derived from the structure defects induced by transition metals doping, which could be 

helpful in oxidation reactions. In comparison with uncatalyzed reactions, the 

La<inf>2</inf>Sn<inf>2</inf>O<inf>7</inf>catalyst exhibited modest catalytic activity for 

soot combustion, while transition metals incorporation further enhanced the activity and 

selectivity. The improved activity of transition metals doped samples was likely to be 

associated with the improved reducibility and increased surface oxygen vacancies on the 

pyrochlore oxides. The presence of NO in the gas phase significantly enhanced the soot 

oxidation activity, which was due to the promotion effect of NO<inf>2</inf>. Especially, 

the densities of active oxygen sites and turnover frequency (TOF) values of the 

catalysts, quantified by isothermal anaerobic titration with soot as a probe molecule, 

were used to explain the different soot combustion behaviors. Among the pyrochlore 

oxides, the Co-doped pyrochlore sample displayed the highest ignition activity and the 

largest intrinsic activity with TOF of 3.20&times;10<sup>-3</sup>s<sup>-1</sup>. &copy;

Abstract:Simultaneous measurements of precursor gases 

NH<inf>3</inf>,NO,NO<inf>2</inf>,SO<inf>2</inf>and the main water-soluble ions in 

PM<inf>2.5</inf>such as sulphate (SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>),nitrate 

(NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>) and ammonium (NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>) (collectively 

called SNA)were carried out in the urban area of Beijing during 2015-01 to 2015-12,which 

obtained 325 groups of samples. PTFE membrane filters were used to collect particulate 

NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>, NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>and SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>, 

followed by the online instruments to collect precursor gases. The pollution 

characteristics of the precursor gases and SNA were analyzed and their correlation was 

studied. The mean concentrations of NH<inf>3</inf>, NO, NO<inf>2</inf>, SO<inf>2</inf>, 

NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>,NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>and SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>were 

21.5, 17.7, 54.3, 14.2, 8.1, 13.5 and 12.7 &mu;g&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>respectively during 

the period of monitoring, and SNA accounted for 43.4% of PM<inf>2.5</inf>. The 

concentrations of SO<inf>2</inf>,NO<inf>x</inf>and SNA declined compared to 2014. The 

concentrations of NO,NO<inf>2</inf>and SO<inf>2</inf>were highest in winter and lowest in 

summer. The concentration of NH<inf>3</inf>was higher in summer and lower in autumn; The 

concentration and the percentage of NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>were stable during the four 

seasons,both the concentrations and the percentage of NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>were 

lowest in summer. The concentrations of SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>was highest in winter 

and the percentage was lowest in summer. The ratio of ([NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>]+2

[SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>]) and NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>was 0.97 during the whole 

year, showing that anions mainly existed in the form of NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>and 

SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>. In summer, the ratio of [NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>]+2

[SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>] and [NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>] was slightly higher than 

1.0, which was the reason why NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>was bound to Ca<sup>2+</sup>, 

Mg<sup>2+</sup>and Na<sup>+</sup>besides NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>. With the increase of 

pollution, the mass concentration of precursor gases and SNA increased dramatically, 

among which NO<inf>x</inf>increased most rapidly, and SO<inf>2</inf>decreased from severe 

pollution to serious pollution. The contribution rate of NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>was 

maintained at a relatively stable level. SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>had a higher 

contribution when the pollution level was lower, whereas the concentration of 

NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>was higher than others and contributed most to 

PM<inf>2.5</inf>in heavy pollution. Heterogeneous transformation on the surface of 

particulate matter played a more important role in the formation of SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2

-</sup>and NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>. The correlations between NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-

</sup>, NO<inf>2</inf>and NO,NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>and 

NH<inf>3</inf>,SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>and SO<inf>2</inf>were significant at the 

confidence level of 0.01. SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>had negative correlation with 

SO<inf>2</inf>, and NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>had positive correlation with 

NO<inf>2</inf>. Compared with NH<inf>3</inf>, the NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>concentration 

was more obviously affected by acid gases NO<inf>2</inf>, SO<inf>2</inf>. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:Ambient air was sampled and analyzed around a municipal solid waste incinerator 

(MSWI) in Beijing from April 2014 to January 2015 to investigate the concentrations, 

profiles and seasonal variations of PCDD/Fs in the region using HRGC-HRMS technique. The 

mass concentrations and TEQ of 2,3,7,8-substituted PCDD/Fs in the air samples ranged from 

8.9 to 140 pg&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>and from 0.11 to 1.8 pg&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>, 

respectively. The concentration values at 4 sampling sites in haze day in autumn and all 

7 sampling sites in winter were higher than the ambient air standard of 0.6 

pg&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>for dioxins regulated in Japan. 1,2,3,4,6,7,8-HpCDF and OCDD 

dominated PCDD/Fs in all the samples for all four seasons with average contribution 

fractions of 20.5% and 14.0%, respectively, while 2,3,4,7,8-PeCDF was the dominant 

congener contributing to TEQ (43.3%). The spatial distribution basically exhibited a 

trend that the concentrations at all sites were comparable and not related to the 

distances from the source. Seasonal variation showed obviously higher concentration in 

winter than the other three seasons, which may attribute to the high concentration of 

ambient particulate matter due to domestic heating and worse atmospheric dispersion that 

occurred in winter. The homologue and congener profiles of PCDD/Fs in the air samples 

differed from those of the flue gas emission from the MSWI, consistent with the principle 

component analysis results. Dioxin inhalation exposure dose estimation showed that the 

dioxin inhalation exposure risk of residents living in the studied area was at a 

relatively safe level [0.060-0.224 pg&middot;(kg&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>]. However, the 

dioxin inhalation exposure risk in heavily polluted seasons still needs great concerns.

Abstract:From May 2015 to June 2016, seasonal sediment samples were collected from three 

headwater streams in the urban-rural fringe of Hefei, Chaohu Lake basin, China. The 

nitrogen pollution characteristics of sediments were preliminarily investigated for the 

three streams. Three metrics, that is, potential nitrification rate (PNR), areal 

nitrification rate (ANR) and rate of denitrification were quantitatively determined, and 

their spatial and temporal variations were discussed subsequently. Moreover, the 

relationship between PNR, ANR or denitrification rate and a list of environmental factors 

was discriminated by using partial least-squares regression analysis. Results showed 

that: (1) Guanzhenhe Distributary was the most polluted stream with a mean content of 

4516.39 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>for TN, which was 2.56 and 1.36 times higher than those 

of Modian Stream and Taochong Stream, respectively. Similarly, the highest values for 

NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N and NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N emerged in Guanzhenhe 

Distributary while the lowest existed in Modian Stream. (2) There were distinct seasonal 

variations in PNR and ANR, namely, the maximum values emerged in summer, minimum in 

winter, and almost equivalent in spring and autumn. And the arrangement in order for PNR 

and ANR was Taochong Stream&gt;Modian Stream&gt;Guanzhenhe Distributary. (3) The mean 

rate of denitrification in Guanzhenhe Distributary was 10.59 mg&middot;(kg&middot;h)

<sup>-1</sup>, which was 3.16 and 1.75 times higher than those in Modian Stream and 

Taochong Stream, respectively. In addition, both denitrification rate and denitrification 

activity in summer were higher than those in spring for the three streams. (4) According 

to the variable importance plot (F<inf>VIP</inf>), ANR, PNR and rate of denitrification 

were almost all significantly correlated with such physical and chemical factors as pH, 

OM, NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N, NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N, TN and TP in sediments 

for the three streams. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Elevated atmospheric CO<inf>2</inf>concentration and temperature may affect 

nitrifiers and denitrifiers which are related to soil N turnover. A climate change 

experiment was conducted in the rice-wheat rotation ecosystem. This study was used to 

investigate effects of elevated CO<inf>2</inf>and temperature on soil microbial community 

structure, as well as abundance and activity of nitrifiers and denitrifiers. The results 

showed that no change in the abundance of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) and 

denitrifier was observed at the tillering stage, however at the later stages, elevated 

CO<inf>2</inf>alone significantly increased the abundance of ammonia-oxidizing archaea 

(AOA) and denitrifier but there were no changes under CW treatment. The analysis of T-

RFLP profiles showed that elevated CO<inf>2</inf>and temperature had no obvious effect on 

community structure of AOA, AOB or denitrifier, but altered diversity index (H') of AOA 

and denitrifier. Moreover, elevated CO<inf>2</inf>alone significantly increased 

nitrifying rate at the ripening stage. Elevated CO<inf>2</inf>and temperature did not 

result in significant change in denitrifying rate at each single stage. These results 

suggested that effects of elevated CO<inf>2</inf>and temperature on microbial community 

were different among the tillering, heading and ripening stages, and functional 

microorganism responded differently to multiple climate change treatments. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:Sixty-eight fish samples were collected from typical epidemic areas of 

schistosomiasis prevalence. The contents of 12 CB congeners in fish samples were measured 

using GC/MS technique. The results indicated that 1,3-DIC, 1,4-DIC, 1,2-DIC and HCB were 

the most predominant CB congeners in the samples from the studying area. The source of 

HCB was PCP (pentachlorophenol), which was used to control the schistosomiasis 

prevalence, used in study area. And DIC came from the degradation of HCB and the articles 

of daily use. The geometric average of CBs in muscle ranged from 2731.50 to 7811.23

Abstract:This study chose two months (January and July) in 2012 which represent winter 

and summer respectively, to assess the effects of fine particle (PM<inf>2.5</inf>) 

pollution elimination due to emission control from different sectors in the Bejing-

Tianjin-Hebei region by using CMAQ/2D-VBS modeling system. The results showed that, 

industrial emissions contributed most to PM<inf>2.5</inf>pollution in the Beijing-

Tianjin-Hebei region, followed by domestic emissions, while the contribution of per ton 

emission reduced for industrial sectors subject to domestic sectors. The total 

contribution and contribution of per ton emission reduced for transportation and power 

plant were both at low level. Among industrial sectors, the iron, steel and metallurgical 

industry was the greatest contributor, followed by cement industry, industrial boiler, 

coking industry, lime and bricks industry and chemical industry. It was found that the 

contribution of each emission source had significant association with its primary 

PM<inf>2.5</inf>emission level. The control of NO<inf>x</inf>emissions would promote the 

formation of PM<inf>2.5</inf>, and atmospheric vertical diffusion effect was weak during 

wintertime in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region. As a result, emission control of various 

sectors was universally more effective for PM<inf>2.5</inf>pollution mitigation in summer 

than in winter. Emission control in summer was significantly more effective for 

transportation, powerplant, cement industry, industrial boiler and lime and bricks 

industry. Due to considerable emissions in heating season, domestic emissions showed more 

contribution in winter. Agricultural sources showed greater contribution per emission 

reduction in winter by the reason of substantial emissions from straw open burning during 

this time. With respect to a certain reduction ratio of emission, future control 

strategies should pay more attention to industrial emissions, especially to the primary 

PM<inf>2.5</inf>emissions. In details, priorities should be given to NO<inf>x</inf>and 

SO<inf>2</inf>emission control for iron, steel and metallurgical industry, 

NO<inf>x</inf>emission control for cement industry and SO<inf>2</inf>and NMVOC emission 

control for coking industry. Besides, domestic emission control should also be taken into 

consideration, and it will be more effective in winter. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:In recent years, cyanide contamination problem is becoming more and more 

serious. Cyanides widely occur in the wastewater from metallurgical industry and 

electroplating industry. The efficiency for cyanides removal of conventional physical and 

chemical methods is not very satisfactory. Therefore, it is urgent to develop highly 

efficient and environmental friendly methods for the removal of cyanides. As an 

environmental-friendly oxidant, potassium persulfate is widely used in the treatment of 

organic pollutants. The destruction of Cu(CN)<inf>3</inf><sup>2-</sup>was investigated by 

homogeneous K<inf>2</inf>S<inf>2</inf>O<inf>8</inf>under alkaline conditions, and the 

reaction mechanism was analyzed. The effects of the amount of 

K<inf>2</inf>S<inf>2</inf>O<inf>8</inf>and the ratio of Cu<sup>+</sup>/CN<sup>-</sup>on 

the degradation of CN<sup>-</sup>were studied. With the increase of 

K<inf>2</inf>S<inf>2</inf>O<inf>8</inf>dose, the rate of CN<sup>-</sup>oxidation was 

accelerated. The removal efficiency of CN<sup>-</sup>reached 89.6% after 60 min of 

reaction in the presence of 2 mmol&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>K<inf>2</inf>S<inf>2</inf>O<inf>8</inf>. Oxidation of CN<sup>-</sup>was 

accelerated with Cu<sup>+</sup>/CN<sup>-</sup>increasing from 2.0 to 5.0. Cu<sup>

+</sup>was oxidized to Cu<sup>2+</sup>and copper oxide was formed during the reaction. 

The reactive radicals were analyzed using electron spin resonance and radical quenching 

experiments, and the results indicated that both radicals oxidation pathway and non-

radical oxidation pathway were responsible for the removal of Cu(CN)<inf>3</inf><sup>2-

</sup>by K<inf>2</inf>S<inf>2</inf>O<inf>8</inf>. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Pot experiment was carried out to investigate the influence of nano zeolite (NZ) 

and ordinary zeolite (OZ) on the growth, activities of antioxidant enzyme, Cd fraction 

and Cd concentration in two varieties of Chinese cabbage. The results showed that the 

activities of SOD, CAT and POD in the shoot and root of two varieties increased, and the 

dry weight of shoot and the total dry weight of Chinese cabbage increased by 4.5%-96.5% 

and 3.4%-88.4%, respectively. The application of zeolite effectively reduced the Cd 

concentration of shoot and root in the two varieties of Chinese cabbage, and the 

reduction range increased with the increase of the application amount of zeolite. Under 

the low Cd condition (1 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>Cd), the Cd concentration of edible 

parts (shoots) in SD4 variety and XJC3 variety decreased by 1.0%-75.0% and 19.5%-68.9% 

(except the Cd<inf>1</inf>+OZ<inf>5</inf>/OZ<inf>10</inf>processing), respectively. Under 

the high Cd condition (5 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>Cd), the Cd concentration of the edible 

parts (shoots) in SD4 variety and XJC3 variety decreased by 7.2%-53.2% (except 

Cd<inf>5</inf>+OZ<inf>10</inf>processing) and 0.7%-63.0%, respectively. The Cd 

concentrations of the edible parts (shoots) in tow varieties of Chinese cabbage in the 

nano zeolite treatments decreased by 10.5%-65.7% compared with the ordinary zeolite 

treatments. In Cd contaminated soils (1 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>and 5 

mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>Cd),) the total extraction amount of Cd in the edible parts 

(shoots) of SD4 variety reduced by 12.4%-68.8% and 13.2%-55.6% (except of Cd<inf>5</inf>

+OZ<inf>5</inf>processing), and the total extraction amount of Cd in the edible parts 

(shoots) of XJC3 variety reduced by 9.4%-71.5% and 3.1%-38.7% (except of Cd<inf>1</inf>

+OZ<inf>5</inf>processing), respectively. The application amount of nano zeolite (NZ) and 

ordinary zeolite (OZ) was more, the reduction range of the total extraction amount of Cd 

in the edible parts (shoots) of two varieties of Chinese cabbage was greater. &copy;

Abstract:The biodegradation of gas-phase mixtrue of dimethyl sulfide (DMS) and 1-

propanethiol (PT) was examined in a biotrickling filter (BTF), inoculated with a 

microbial consortium composed of activated sewage sludge, and pure strains of Alcaligenes 

sp. SY1 and Pseudomonas putida. S-1. BTF could be successfully started up within only 11 

days when the inlet concentrations of DMS and PT were both 50 mg&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>and 

EBRT was 30 s, with 90% removal efficiency (RE) of DMS and 100% RE of PT. In the steady 

state, the maximum elimination capacities of DMS and PT were 8.7 g&middot;

(m<sup>3</sup>&middot;h)<sup>-1</sup>and 12.4 g&middot;(m<sup>3</sup>&middot;h)<sup>-

1</sup>, respectively. The presence of PT with a concentration up to 51 

mg&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>showed an antagonistic removal pattern for DMS, but the opposite 

did not occur. Meanwhile, the BTF showed high efficiency in the biodegradation of 

H<inf>2</inf>S. When the concentration of H<inf>2</inf>S was as high as 230 

mg&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>, the RE of H<inf>2</inf>S could reach 98%. However, 

H<inf>2</inf>S showed a declining effect on the removal of DMS when the concentration 

exceeded 115 mg&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:In current scenario, the soil pollution has become very severe and its effects 

on agricultural and ecological security issues cannot be ignored as various contaminants 

are discharged into soil. Thus, the soil pollution is exigent and has to be solved. This 

research took soil resistance(Rt), resilience (Rl) and stability (Sb) as evaluation 

indexes for judging soil quality by exerting different concentration (concentration 

ratio) gradient of pyrene (PYR), cadmium (Cd) and pyrene/cadmium (PYR/Cd) combined 

pollutants. A sympathetic description was showed from the aspects of microbial activity, 

diversity and abundance of soil ecosystem,and the models were constructed to describe the 

dose-response relationship between PYR-Sb and Cd-Rt. The research showed that different 

types of pollutants had certain inhibition on soil DOC content. In Cd and PYR simplex 

pollution, soil microbial mean biomass and colony number decreased with increasing 

concentration of pollutants. In PYR/Cd combined pollution, the ratio of PYR and Cd had a 

negative correlation with the decreasing rate of DOC and resistance, meanwhile Cd had a 

prominent influence on the above-mentioned correlations, in other words, the soil with 

higher concentration of Cd had lower DOC decrease rate and resistance, and Cd would have 

dominant inhibition effect on microorganisms under PYR/Cd combined pollution. In 

addition, this study found the significant correlation of c<inf>PYR</inf>-Sb and 

c<inf>Cd</inf>-Rt, and built the binomial forecasting model to describe the dose-response 

relationship of c<inf>PYR</inf>-Sb and c<inf>Cd</inf>-Rt. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:BTEX concentrations were determined by GC5000 online gas chromatography in the 

atmosphere of the north suburb of Nanjing in March 2013 to February 2014, using the EPA 

human exposure analysis evaluation method for benzene series compounds of volatile 

organic compounds (VOCs) in health risk assessment. The results showed that the total 

amount of BTEX showed the variation characteristics of 

spring&gt;winter&gt;autumn&gt;summer. BTEX concentration was higher in the periods of 

07:00-10:00 and 17:00-20:00, and the lowest was detected between 13:00-15:00; At the 

weekend, the concentration of BTEX was higher than on the working day. The sources of 

BTEX included traffic sources, industrial sources and solvent evaporation. The HQ of BTEX 

in all four seasons showed the order of benzene&gt;xylene&gt;ethylbenzene&gt;toluene, and 

the HQ risk values were within the safety range in all analysis periods. The distribution 

of R value was winter&gt;autumn&gt;spring&gt;summer, and R was higher than the safety 

threshold for all the analyses, indicating the existence of carcinogenic risk. &copy;

Abstract:Morphologically-based functional groups (MBFG) is the basis for a simple way of 

distinguishing the phytoplankon to cluster species according to their similar 

morphological traits observed by optical microscope. In order to understand the 

application of morphologically-based functional groups (MBFG) in the research on 

phytoplankton community structure and variation of deep-water reservoir, as well as the 

succession characteristics of algae, the Jinpen Reservoir was studied from August 2011 to 

July 2013. Using morphologically-based functional groups (MBFG), the phytoplankton 

communities found in the reservoir were classified to functional groups, and the 

relations between the morphologically-based functional groups succession and environment 

cases were explored with redundancy analysis (RDA) method. The results suggested that 

five morphologically-based functional groups were found in the reservoir, namely 

II,IV,V,VI,VII; The succession of reservoir algal functional groups had seasonal 

characteristics, a variety of Morphologically-based functional groups coexisted in spring 

and summer,while reservoir algal functional groups were relatively simple in autumn and 

winter; meanwhile, the density of each morphologically-based functional group decreased 

with the increase of water depth among the environmental factors, morphologically-based 

functional groups IV and VI were respectively affected by temperature; the other water 

layers of the reservoir morphologically-based functional groups VI was significantly 

affected by TN content. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Sorption of p-nitrophenol (PNP) on biochars prepared from pyrolysis of corncob 

in the temperature range of 200-600&#8451; (CC200-CC600) was investigated. Sorption 

mechanisms were discussed. Pyrolysis temperature showed a pronounced effect on properties 

of biochars. Decreases in molar H/C, O/C and (O+N)/C ratios were resulted from removal of 

H- and O-containing functional groups with increasing pyrolysis temperature, and produced 

biochars with low polarity and high aromaticity. The isotherms data were well described 

by the Freundlich model. Batch sorption experiments showed that the PNP sorption was 

strongly dependent on the properties of biochars. A linear relationship was observed 

between sorption parameters (n and K<inf>F</inf>) and properties of biochars such as 

molar elemental ratios [H/C, O/C, and (O+N)/C]. The sorption and partition fractions were 

quantified by isotherm separation method. PNP sorption on biochar produced at 200&#8451; 

was linear due to partition on uncarbonized organic matter in biochar, while PNP sorption 

on biochars produced at 300-600&#8451; was nonlinear and adsorption-dominant for all the 

biochars via &pi;-&pi; electron donor-acceptor interaction and pore-filling. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:To identify the compositions and sources of dicarboxylic acids and related SOA 

in Mt. Taishan, PM<inf>2.5</inf>samples were collected from July to August, 2004, and 

analyzed for dicarboxylic acids and related compounds, the tracers of biogenic secondary 

organic aerosol (SOA) (Isopene, &alpha;-/&beta;-Pinene and &beta;-caryophyllene SOA 

tracers), water-soluble organic carbon (WSOC) and inorganic ions. The results showed that 

total dicarboxylic acids were (376&plusmn;189) ng&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>, and 

C<inf>2</inf>was the most abundant dicarboxylic acid, followed by C<inf>3</inf>, 

C<inf>4</inf>and C<inf>9</inf>. The concentrations of diacids were more abundant than 

those in marine regions, but lower than those in urban and other mountainous areas, 

indicating that the atmosphere in Mt. Taishan was less influenced by anthropogenic 

pollution. C<inf>2</inf>/C<inf>4</inf>, C<inf>3</inf>/C<inf>4</inf>and F/M ratios 

indicated that diacids were mostly produced by more intensive photochemical oxidation. 

The relative abundance of C<inf>9</inf>to the total diacids, 

C<inf>9</inf>/C<inf>6</inf>and C<inf>9</inf>/Ph ratios were higher than those in urban, 

marine and mountainous regions, further suggesting that SOA in Mt. Taishan atmosphere 

were mostly derived from biogenic sources rather than anthropogenic sources. Compared to 

the budgets of model and correlation analysis, it suggested that diacids and related SOA 

in Mt. Taishan were mostly derived from photochemical oxidation of local biogenic 

sources. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:The use of biological pesticide can greatly reduce the soil pollution in the 

environment. Exploring the effect of biological pesticide on community diversity and 

distribution of pathogenic bacteria will provide theoretic basis for subsequent 

researches on biological pesticide micro-ecological control. In order to explore the 

microbial ecological mechanism of pepper phytophthora blight, this research compared the 

difference of microbial diversity between rhizosphere soil of infected and healthy 

plants, and the effects of Rhodopseudomonas palustris PSB06 on microbial diversities of 

plant rhizosphere soil were investigated using Illumina MiSeq sequencing technology. The 

results showed that there was less difference in the microbial diversity from the same 

soil between the seventh day and the fourteenth day. The microbial diversity of 

rhizosphere soil of healthy plants was higher than that of rhizosphere soil of infected 

plants. The soil sprayed with Rhodopseudomonas palustris PSB06 exhibited the highest 

diversity. Moreover, the abundance of Actinomycetes in the rhizosphere soil of healthy 

plants was higher than that of infected plants, and the highest abundance of 

Actinomycetes was observed in the soil sprayed with Rhodopseudomonas palustris PSB06. The 

microbial diversity between rhizosphere soil of infected and healthy plants was 

significantly different. Spraying Rhodopseudomonas palustris PSB06 could significantly 

alter the microbial community structure of the soil. It could also increase the diversity 

of microorganism and the abundance of Actinomycetes in the soil. &copy; 2017, Science

(PM<inf>2.5</inf>) in four seasons was different, but the six monitoring stations showed 

similar trends in each season. Daily average &rho;(PM<inf>2.5</inf>) was simulated and 

verified by BRT. The correlation coefficient of the training data was 0.981, and the 

cross-validation correlation coefficient was 0.957. In addition, the mean deviation 

between the simulated values and the measured values was 1.80%, and the standardized mean 

error was 10.41%, which showed that the model fitted well. The contribution percentages 

of four kinds of impact types (PM<inf>10</inf>, gaseous pollutants, meteorological 

factors and regional transport and diffusion) to daily average &rho;(PM<inf>2.5</inf>) 

changes of four seasons were 23.4%, 28%, 36.2% and 12.6%, respectively. So, the most 

significant affecting factor was meteorological condition, followed by secondary 

formation, primary emission, and regional transport and diffusion. In the factors with 

contribution percentages of more than 5%, the daily average &rho;(PM<inf>2.5</inf>) was 

positively associated with PM<inf>10</inf>, relative humidity, CO and O<inf>3</inf>, and 

was negatively correlated with temperature, SO<inf>2</inf>and mixed layer high. In 

addition, the daily average &rho;(PM<inf>2.5</inf>) had complex relationships with 

atmospheric pressure and NO<inf>2</inf>. For regional transport and diffusion, the 

polluted air flow from southeast, west and north had a relatively great negative impact 

on PM<inf>2.5</inf>pollution of urban area in Changzhou. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:A completely mixed aeration system was introduced in domestic sewage treatment, 

and the simultaneous nitrification and denitrification process and microbial community 

structure were further investigated. The pilot-scale experimental results showed that the 

operation of the system was stable and the average chemical oxygen demand (COD), 

NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N and total nitrogen (TN) removal were 93.2%, 96.9% and 75.2%, 

respectively. The effluent COD, NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N and TN were better than the 

standard of level A stipulated by Discharge Standard of Pollutants for Municipal 

Wastewater Treatment Plant (GB 18918-2002) in the absence of external carbon source. The 

sludge derived from the system showed a significant denitrification capacity and the 

denitrification rate was 2.86 times higher than that in the wastewater treatment plant. 

In addition, the existence of aerobic denitrifying bacteria in the system was confirmed 

by the PCR amplification of genes encoding perplasmic nitrate reductases. The high-

throughput sequencing results revealed that Zoogloea, Thauera and Dechloromonas were 

dominant in the completely mixed aeration system. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Understanding of diurnal variation of soil porewater dissolved CO<inf>2</inf>and 

CH<inf>4</inf>concentration plays an important role in revealing carbon cycling in 

estuarine wetlands. During neap and spring tidal days in April and September 2010, the 

diurnal variations of soil porewater dissolved CO<inf>2</inf>and 

CH<inf>4</inf>concentrations and main impacting factors in a brackish marsh ecosystem 

dominated by two species of Cyperus malaccensis (brevifolius) and Phragmites australis 

(common reed) were determined in the ShanYutan in the Min River estuary, southeast China. 

The results showed that: &#9312; the soil porewater dissolved CH<inf>4</inf>concentration 

during the spring and neap tidal days in April and September ranged from 88.20 to 190.74, 

53.42 to 141.24, 16.27 to 81.89 and 44.90 to 88.53 &mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, 

respectively. The mean of dissolved CH<inf>4</inf>concentration was higher at nighttime 

than at daytime during the spring and neap tidal days in April, but the mean of dissolved 

CH<inf>4</inf>concentration was higher at daytime than at nighttime during the spring and 

neap tidal tidal days in September. &#9313; the soil porewater dissolved 

CO<inf>2</inf>concentration during the spring and neap tidal days in September ranged 

from 19.33 to 40.1 &mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>and 9.69 to 29.96 &mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>, respectively, and the dissolved CO<inf>2</inf>concentration during daytime was 

lower than that at night; &#9314; the mean of dissolved CO<inf>2</inf>concentration was 

lower during the inundation period than in the exposed soil surface period, but the mean 

of dissolved CH<inf>4</inf>concentration was higher during the inundation period than in 

the exposed soil surface period. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Eukaryotic phytoplankton plays an important ecological function in river 

ecosystem. The 18S rRNA gene V4 variable region of the environmental samples in Liaohe 

river was sequenced by using 454 pyrosequencing technology. The reprehensive sequences of 

OTUs were annotated, and then the OTUs list was compared to the species list obtained by 

microscope observation. The phylogenetic tree was constructed based on the reprehensive 

sequences of OTUs and 18S rRNA genes of eukaryotic phytoplankton algae obtained from 

GenBank. The community structure characteristics of eukaryotic phytoplankton and its 

environmental impact indicators were further studied. In this study, we got 167 901 

high-quality sequences of 18S rRNA gene V4 region. These sequences were annotated to 424 

OTUs, including 134 eukaryotic algae. The results of the high-throughput sequencing 

showed that bacillariophyta and chlorophyta were the dominant groups of the total phyla. 

The high-throughput sequencing also revealed the presence of Charophyta, Cryptophyta, 

Haptophyta and Chrysophyceae which were not observed by optical microscope. The phylogeny 

analysis clustered the Cryptophyta and Pyrroptata at phylum level. The different genera 

of Cryptophyta and part of families or genera of Pyrroptata were clustered and 

distinguished by phylogeny analysis. The results of RDA showed that NH<inf>4</inf><sup>

+</sup>-N, PO<inf>4</inf><sup>3</sup>-P and NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>were the most 

important environmental factors that affected the community structure. This study 

provided a new perspective to understand the diversity, community structure and influence 

factors of eukaryotic phytoplankton in Liaohe river. The study also indicated that high-

throughput sequencing has great application potential in investigation of phytoplankton 

and the water environment quality assessment in Liaohe river. &copy; 2017, Science Press.

Abstract:Landfills are the third largest iron reservoir and one of the largest sources of 

methane release. Iron, as a kind of transition metal, plays a particularly important role 

in environmental biogeochemistry and is closely linked to the biogeochemical cycle of C, 

S and N. The aged refuse could be utilized as bio-cover material to improve the removal 

of contaminants. Therefore, this work investigated the effect of iron reduction on 

anaerobic removal of methane, and the interactions of ferric iron with nitrate and 

sulfate in the aged refuse. The columns were operated as landfill bio-covers and 

recirculated leachate with addition of FeCl<inf>3</inf>solution. In the experiment, three 

columns were used, two of them were used as controls (named as B1 and B3), B1 was fed 

with leachate and CH<inf>4</inf>, whereas B3 was only recirculated with leachate adding 

FeCl<inf>3</inf>. The treatment B2 was fed with the above two substrates. During the 

operation of columns, the contents of CH<inf>4</inf>, CO<inf>2</inf>and N<inf>2</inf>in 

the gas, and the concentrations of NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>, NO<inf>2</inf><sup>-

</sup>, NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>, SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>, Fe(III) and Fe(II) in 

the leachate and refuse were respectively determined. The results showed that adding 

ferric iron obviously enhanced the removal of methane in anaerobic aged refuse, the 

decrease of methane content with time obeyed zero-order kinetic, and the rate of methane 

removal(denoted as CH<inf>4</inf>/aged refuse)reached 1.28 mmol&middot;(kg&middot;d)

<sup>-1</sup>. In the anaerobic condition, methane could improve the reduction of Fe(III) 

to dissolved, active and bioavailable Fe(II). The active Fe(II) probably coupled to the 

transformation of NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>and SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>, and thus 

accelerated the removal of NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>and SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>.

Abstract:Mangrove wetland plays an important role in coastal environment. A total of 10 

surface water samples and 7 surface sediments samples were collected in March, 2015 from 

Nansha mangrove wetland, and 8 compounds of organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) were 

determined by GC-ECD to investigate residues level, source, and ecological risk of these 

compounds in the study region. The result showed concentrations of OCPs in water ranged 

from 1.89 to 90.19 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>(mean 30.16 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>), and 

concentrations of OCPs in sediments varied from 3.10 to 16.02 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>

(average 8.58 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>). Compared with other estuaries and harbors around 

the world, concentrations of OCPs in this study stayed at a median pollution level. The 

mean values of distribution coefficient of HCHs and DDTs between water and sediments were 

857 and 368, respectively. Sediments in some parts of the area, whose distribution 

coefficient was relatively high, may bring water the secondary pollution. Source analysis 

indicated that HCHs mainly originated from the application of Lindane, and DDTs 

originated from mixed sources of dicofol and technical DDT. Compared with OCPs in water, 

OCPs in sediments might contain more historical residual components. OCPs in water had 

light ecological risk, but OCPs in sediments posed a potential high risk to mangrove 

ecosystem. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Soil incubation experiment and pot experiment were carried out to investigate 

the influence of nano zeolite (NZ) and ordinary zeolite (OZ) on the soil pH, cation 

exchange capacity, concentration of soil Cd, soil Cd fraction and Cd uptake by Chinese 

cabbage when exposed to different Cd pollution levels(1, 5, 10 and 15 mg&middot;kg<sup>-

1</sup>). The results of soil incubation experiment showed that the nano zeolite and 

ordinary zeolite dose(5, 10 and 20 g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>) increased the soil pH and 

cation exchange capacity, and decreased the concentration of soil exchangeable Cd, while 

increased the concentration of Cd in carbonate, Fe-Mn oxide, organic matter and residual 

fraction. The lowest EX-Cd was observed in the high nano zeolite (20 g&middot;kg<sup>-

1</sup>) treatment. The soil pH and cation exchange capacity was extremely negatively 

correlated with the concentration of soil exchangeable Cd(P&lt;0.01), and extremely 

positively correlated with the concentration of soil Fe-Mn oxide Cd(P&lt;0.01). The 

results of pot experiment showed that the FDC of exchangeable Cd in soil decreased by 

6.4%-63.2%, and the FDC of water-extractable and ethnol-extractable Cd in Chinese cabbage 

decreased by 2.1%-56% and 11.8%-100% with zeolite application, respectively. Moreover, 

the reduction effect of nano zeolite on Cd concentration in soil and plant was better 

than that of ordinary zeolite. The FDC of Cd fraction in shoot of Chinese cabbage showed 

correlation with the FDC of carbonate Cd and organic matter Cd in soil(P&lt;0.05) when 

exposed to 1 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>Cd pollution. Moreover, correlation was also found 

in the FDC of organic matter Cd and residual Cd in soil(P&lt;0.05) under 5

Abstract:Identifying nitrate sources and its transformation mechanisms are important for 

nitrate pollution control in surface water. The columnar core sediment samples in West 

Lake were taken in different seasons. The transformation of nitrogen at the sediment-

water interface was studied using nitrogen and oxygen isotopes, stable isotope analysis 

in R (SIAR) and acetylene inhibition method in the West Lake, Hangzhou. The results 

showed that the concentration gradient of both NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>and 

NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>existed at the sediment-water interface. NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-

</sup>concentrations decreased from bottom water to pore water and NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-

</sup>was accumulated in sediments. NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>concentrations increased 

from bottom water to pore water and NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>was released from 

sediments. Nitrate sources in bottom water where nitrification exited were sewage 

(manure), soil nitrogen, chemical fertilizer and precipitation. Sewage (manure) was the 

major nitrogen contributor (60.8%) in summer. Particularly high &delta;<sup>15</sup>N 

values in pore water indicated that there was strong denitrification at the sediment-

water interface in West Lake. The average nitrification rate and denitrification rate at 

the sediment-water interface were 2.85 mmol&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;d)<sup>-

1</sup>and 23.51 &mu;mol&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. The 

sediment-water interface played a role in nitrogen removal process in aquatic 

environment. Seasonal and spatial variations of nitrification rates and denitrification 

rates were found in this study. Temperature and dissolved oxygen were the main 

influential factors for the transformation of nitrogen at the sediment-water interface in 

West Lake. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:In order to explore the distribution characteristics and change rule in daytime 

of the water temperature and water quality of the deep plateau lake Fuxian Lake during 

the thermal stratification period in summer, a typical point location was selected 

respectively in the south, middle and north of Fuxian Lake in July 2014 to carry out 

investigation and observation after stratified sampling at each point location and 

continuous stratified sampling of the point location in the north during daytime. The 

result showed that &#9312;The distribution of water temperature of Fuxian Lake in summer 

had the temperature distribution characteristics of deep lake during stratification 

period. The segment from the surface to a depth of 15 meters was epilimnion with a range 

of 25.51-22.81&#8451;. The segment from the depth of 15m to 40m was thermocline with a 

range of 22.81-14.72&#8451;. The segment below 40m was hypolimnion with a range of 14.72

-13.70&#8451;. The max temperature difference between the surface and the lakebed was 

11.8&#8451;, which was smaller than that of lakes in temperate zone during the same 

period. The temperature of the lakebed was about 14&#8451; which was higher than that of 

the lakes in temperate zone,which reflected the characteristics of water temperature 

stratification of the deep plateau lake Fuxian Lake; &#9313; The water temperature 

stratification determined the characteristics of chemical stratification and the 

ecological stratification: the pH, DO and conductivity presented the same layered 

structure as the distribution of water temperature. What is noteworthy was that the DO 

concentration of the lakebed was as low as 2-3mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. As an 

oligotrophic lake, the DO became lower and lower at the lakebed of Fuxian Lake, which 

indicated that it possibly faced ecological risks. Due to the separation of thermocline, 

the nutritive salt accumulative effect appeared in the hypolimnion. Chlorophyll a and 

permanganate index had a corresponding response relation with the water temperature 

stratification and showed the max value at the upper layer of the lake. &#9314; During 

the thermal stratification period, the water temperature stratification of Fuxian Lake 

had a change during daytime. The increased thermal radiation in the noon caused the 

thermocline to dive, the strength to increase and the depth to narrow, which 

significantly influenced the dynamic distribution of pH, DO, conductivity and chlorophyll 

a of the epilimnion and the thermocline. The change rule of TP, TN and permanganate index 

during the daytime was not significant. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Carbon nitride is a novel nonmetal semiconductor photocatalyst, which has 

developed into an ideal environmental treatment material in recent years. Graphite carbon 

nitride(g-C<inf>3</inf>N<inf>4</inf>) was prepared through pyrolysis melamine, and the 

structure, morphology and optical properties of samples were characterized by X-ray 

diffraction(XRD), transmission electron microscopy(TEM) and UV-Vis diffuse reflectance 

spectra(UV-Vis DRS). The potential application of g-C<inf>3</inf>N<inf>4</inf>in the 

simultaneous photocatalysis reduction of Cr(VI) and oxidation of sulfosalicylic acid(SSA) 

was further explored. And the effects of different conditions such as catalyst dosage, pH 

and initial concentration ratio of Cr(VI) with SSA on the simultaneous photocatalysis 

were also investigated. The results showed that when the catalyst dosage was 0.5 

g&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, pH=2, the initial concentration ratio of Cr (VI) and SSA was 

1&#8758;4(10 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>&#8758;40 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>), optimal 

simultaneous photocatalysis efficiency was achieved, which was more than 3 times higher 

than that of the separated photoreduction or photooxidation reactions. Within 3 hours, 

the reduction ratio of Cr(VI) and oxidation ratio of SSA could reach 98.9% and 93.4%, 

respectively. The mechanism of simultaneous photocatalysis was discussed. Cr(VI) was 

reduced by electrons and SSA was oxidized by the combined function of hole,

Planctomycetes and Proteobacteria increased from 1.1%, 27.9% in the enrichment stage to 

26.4%, 39.9% in the stable operation stage respectively. In addition, Planctomycetes 

increased significantly. The proportion of Brocadiacea reached 24.57%. Therefore, 

Brocadiacea became the dominant bacteria in the phylum Planctomycete, which contained 

Candidatus brocadia. The alpha diversity index and relative abundance of clustering 

figure indicated that the diversity of microbial community decreased gradually and the

Abstract:This study was aimed to explore the bacterial diversity of cellar water as well 

as to study the relationship between the bacterial diversity and environmental factors. 

The MiSeq high-throughput sequencing was used to analyze and compare the bacterial 

diversity and community composition of samples from different cellar water samples. 

Overall 1 605 optimized reads were obtained from four samples based on high-throughput 

sequencing of the V4 region of the 16S rRNA gene. Bacterial species detected in these 

samples covered 22 phyla, 42 classes, 71 orders, 115 families, 146 genera. Analysis 

showed that the bacterial diversity was very high in these samples, and there were 

differences among different samples. The distribution characteristics of the dominant 

bacteria showed patterns of a large number of rare species and a few common types. 

Taxonomic assignment analysis indicated that Bacteroidetes, Proteobacteria, 

Actinobacteria, Verrucomicrobia, OD1 dominated in the Cellar water, and accounted for 

87.1% to 94.8% at phylum level. The predominant groups were Actinobacteria, 

Acidimicrobiia, Cytophagia, Flavobacteriia, Sphingobacteriia, &alpha;-Proteobacteria, 

&beta;-Proteobacteria, &gamma;-Proteobacteria, Opitutae, Verrucomicrobiae, Pedosphaerae 

and ZB2 at class level. At genus level Rhodobacter, Dechloromonas, Flavobacterium, 

Acinetobacter, Comamonas, Pseudomonas, Hydrogenophaga, et al were the abundant taxa, 

which were mainly denitrifying bacteria and heterotrophic nitrification-aerobic 

denitrification bacteria. The result of RDA suggested that the influences of different 

environmental factors on different microbes were different. Bacterial community II had 

significant positive correlation with UV<inf>254</inf>, permanganate index, 

BOD<inf>5</inf>, and Bacterial community III had significant positive correlation with 

TN, NO<inf>2</inf><sup>-</sup>-N, NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N, TP, NH<inf>4</inf><sup>

+</sup>-N. This research should deepen the understanding on microbial community in Cellar 

water, and provide references for the association of bacterial composition and diversity 

with environmental factors. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Farmland soils in sewage irrigation area at Longkou City were collected, soil pH 

together with the heavy metal content were tested. Taking 70 soil points as the study 

object, this paper investigated the source of heavy metals in this area based on the 

correlation analysis and PCA of multivariate statistical analysis theory. We studied the 

spatial variation and distribution characteristics about heavy metals using both the 

theory of geostatistics and GIS spatial interpolation method. At last, the heavy metal 

pollution was evaluated in the way of Nemerow Index and improved fuzzy evaluation method. 

It turned out that, 9 kinds of heavy metal elements in the soil of research area had a 

certain degree of enrichment, among them the average of Cd was 3.06 times as high as the 

background value, and its enrichment was most severe. The result of Nemerow Index showed 

that, the values of comprehensive pollution index of Cu, Cd and Pb respectively were 

7.06, 6.10 and 5.54, and they all belonged to high levels of pollution. According to the 

results of correlation analysis and principal component analysis, Cu, Zn together with 

Pb, Cd were mainly affected by human factors, sewage irrigation was their common 

pollution factor, the pollution sources for the first two heavy metals included excessive 

use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides in agricultural production and the 

accumulation of long time, whereas pollution from northern coal mining and coal gangue 

piled up as well as plating, machinery manufacturing and other industrial pollution were 

the pollution sources of the latter two elements. Other elements (Co, Cr, Mn, Ni and As) 

were mainly influenced by natural factors such as parent material. Comprehensive 

evaluation results showed that, among the 70 points, 13 points had moderate pollution, 23 

points belonged to light pollution, 28 points were at alert level, 6 points were in the 

safe range. From the perspective of spatial distribution, high value areas of heavy metal 

contents were mainly concentrated in towns of Zhuyouguan and Xufu. This showed that, 

sewage irrigation caused a certain degree of heavy metal pollution to local soil. &copy;

Abstract:Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is widely used in industrial production because of 

its strong chemical stabilities and good hydrophobic and oleophobic properties. It was 

considered to be a widespread persistent organic pollutant in environment in recent 

years. The oxidative stress and membrane damage of Escherichia coli exposed to PFOA were 

measured by flow cytometry (FCM) and the toxic mechanism of PFOA was also preliminarily 

explored. The results showed that, under the stress of PFOA, the intracellular reactive 

oxygen species (ROS) content of E. coli increased, the unsaturation degree of fatty acid 

decreased, the malondialdehyde (MDA) content increased, the membrane permeability 

increased, the membrane potential decreased, and the activities of Na<sup>+</sup>K<sup>

+</sup>-ATPase and Ca<sup>2+</sup>Mg<sup>2+</sup>-ATPase showed a compensatory increase 

first and then decreased. Therefore, owing to the stress of PFOA, the higher 

intracellular ROS in E. coli reacted with membrane unsaturated fatty acids by 

peroxidation, and then reduced cell membrane fatty acid saturation, accumulated MDA in 

cells, and further caused damage to cell membrane, reduced the ATPase activity, and 

eventually resulted in inactivation or apoptosis of E. coli. This study provided more 

evidence for the further study on environmental ecological toxicology of PFOA. &copy;

Abstract:Sulfur/dolomite and pyrite/dolomite autotrophic denitrification reactors were 

applied to treat the secondary effluent of wastewater treatment plant to explore the 

removal effect, the changes of microbial community, and recovery time of reactors after 

starvation period. It was shown in the results that after 30 d non-water starvation 

endurance, the effluent concentrations of NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N in sulfur/dolomite 

and pyrite/dolomite reactors increased from 1.78 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, 11.32 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to 27.87 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, 26.56 mg&middot;L<sup>-

and pyrite/dolomite reactors recovered within 5 d and 11 d since restarted and could 

maintain a good effect of nitrogen removal at low temperature. MiSeq high throughput 

sequencing results showed that the abundance and diversity of the bacterial communities 

in starvation period in both reactors were lower than those in recovery period. The 

dominating phylum was Proteobacteria in both reactors while the dominating class was 

&beta;-Proteobacteria. Thiobacillus was identified as the main genus for denitrification

bioaccessibility, ferrihydrite, goethite and hematite were used in PBET, SBRC and IVG 

in-vitro experiments in this study. The relationship between arsenic bioavailability in 

gastric, small intestinal phases and arsenic speciation was also studied. The results 

showed that when 1% ferrihydrite was added, arsenic bioavailability in gastric phase was 

2.22%, 5.11% and 7.43% by PBET, SBRC and IVG methods, respectively, while in the small 

intestinal phase it was 3.39%, 2.33% and 6.18%. At an elevated ferrihydrite dosage of 2%, 

significant difference in arsenic bioavailability was observed in both phases 

(P&lt;0.05). According to in vitro experiments, the addition of the same amount of 

different iron minerals had contributed to the decrease in arsenic bioavailability to 

varying extents in contrast with the blank group, in the descending order of ferrihydrite 

(F1)&gt;goethite (G1)&gt;hematite (H1) (F2&gt;G2&gt;H2). Total arsenic in exchangeable 

(F1) and specifically sorbed (F2) state was found positively correlated with arsenic 

bioavailability in gastric phase by PBET, SBRC and IVG methods, the correlation 

coefficient of which being r=0.93, P=0.002, r=0.90, P=0.004 and r=0.89, P=0.006, 

respectively. It was also found that arsenic bioavailability in gastric phase was 

positively correlated with total arsenic in F1 and F2 states by PBET (r=0.94, P=0.001) 

and IVG (r=0.87, P=0.009) methods, but no significant correlation was observed by SBRC 

method. Additionally, three in vitro experiments showed that amorphous iron bound arsenic 

had significant negative correlation with arsenic bioavailability in gastric phase and 

small intestinal phase, except that no correlation was found in small intestinal phase by 

SBRC method. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Formation characteristics and transferring feature of nitrogenous/carbonaceous 

disinfection by-products have been observed under different ozone dosages and pH 

conditions, and essential nature conversion of Algae organic matters has been also 

studied concurrently, based on high algae-laden water. The results showed as follows: 

reduction of Microcystis aeruginosa could reach 36% at the ozonation concentration of 

28.92 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. Humic acid-like compounds first increased and then 

decreased with continuing addition of ozone dosage, whereas soluble microbial products, 

fulvic acids and aromatic protein substance all diminished. Low dosage of ozone had 

certain effect on control of dichloroacetonitrile (DCAN) and trichloroacetonitrile (TCAN) 

formation potential, yet augmented the yield of trichloronitromethane (TCNM) and 1,1,1-

trichloroacetone (1,1,1-TCP) precursors, and N-DBPs formation potential was promoted with 

the increase of ozone dosage. Algae removal efficiency was relatively the best under the 

acidic condition, meanwhile, UV<inf>254</inf>and DOC increased with the rise of pH, 

though the change was not outstanding. Humic acid-like compounds decreased with the rise 

of pH; ozonation could degrade the soluble microbial products and the consequence was 

affected little by the change of pH. DCAN and TCAN formation potential decreased with the 

rise of pH; TCNM formation potential appeared to be the highest when the pH was 10, 

whereas the highest 1,1,1-TCP formation potential was found at pH 7. &copy; 2017, Science

Abstract:To address the problem of low activity for Fe-based Fenton-like catalysts at 

neutral pH, Cu-Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf>Fenton-like catalyst was prepared by a simple 

co-precipitation method. The samples were characterized by means of X-ray diffraction 

(XRD), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and diffuse reflectance UV-vis spectra 

(UV-vis DRS). The results showed that both Cu<sup>2+</sup>and Cu<sup>+</sup>mainly 

existed in the bulk framework of Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf>for Cu-

Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf>with appropriate Cu doping (lower than 4.77% Cu), forming the 

bond of Al-O-Cu, while excessive Cu doping in Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf>(e.g. 7.58% Cu) 

could result in the occurrence of extraframework Cu species. The Fenton-like catalytic 

performance of the prepared samples was evaluated by the degradation of 2-chlorophenol 

(2-CP) and Rhodamine B (RhB). The results showed that the catalyst with framework Cu 

species had high catalytic activity and stability for the degradation of 2-CP and RhB. 

After reaction for 2 h, the degradation rate of 2-CP reached up to 54% over Cu-

Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf>(4.77% Cu) in the presence of H<inf>2</inf>O<inf>2</inf>, the 

corresponding TOC removal reached 49%, and the Cu release concentration was only 0.0255 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. However, the existence of extraframework Cu in 

Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf>would lead to the reduction of the catalytic performance. ESR 

analysis showed that &middot;OH and HO<inf>2</inf><sup>-</sup>/O<inf>2</inf><sup>-

&middot;</sup>were the primary active species. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:This study aimed to understand how the physicochemical properties of silver 

nanoparticles (AgNPs) affected its toxicity in the aquatic environment. The morphologies 

of oleylamine-coated AgNPs (4 nm) under environmental and laboratory water conditions 

were studied under transmission electron microscopy, and the results showed oleylamine-

coated AgNPs formed big aggregates in the environmental water samples after 12 h 

equilibration. Dynamic light scattering results also showed that oleylamine-coated AgNPs 

had larger hydrodynamic size in all water samples as compared to its primary size (4 nm). 

Exposure to oleylamine-coated AgNPs inhibited the growth of Bacillus subtilis (B. 

subtilis) and reduced its cell viability in Luria-Bertani (LB) broth and 0.85% NaCl, 

respectively. A dose-dependent toxicity of AgNPs in B. subtilis was observed in 

laboratorial medium conditions but not in environmental water condition. Low 

concentration of AgNPs exhibited lower toxicity in environmental water samples as 

compared to that in laboratorial medium conditions. Separating AgNPs from bacterial 

suspension through a dialysis membrane enhanced the cell viability of B. subtilis 

significantly. In the environmental water samples, the AgNPs-bacteria interaction would 

be reduced with the formation of big aggregates by AgNPs, which consequently decreased 

its toxicity in aquatic environment. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) is considered a source of 

airborne human pathogens and antibiotic resistance genes. This study collected fecal 

samples and corresponding air samples from inside and outside atmospheric environments of 

layer and broiler feeding operations. We detected the types of 61 genes including five 

classes of antibiotics antibiotic resistance genes (23 genes of ampicillin, 23 genes of 

tetracycline, 5 genes of quinolones, 5 genes of sulfonamides and 2 genes of 

erythromycin), five conditional pathogenic bacteria (Enterococcus, Escherichia coli, 

Staphylococcus, Campylobacter and Clostridium perfringens) and class1 integron. 

Quantitative real time PCR was used to analyze concentrations of typical genes with 

relatively high detection rates. The results indicated that the detection rates of 

antibiotic resistance genes were 8, 7, 2, 3 and 2. At the same time, two kinds of 

pathogenic bacteria were detected. The detection rates of the target genes in the air 

were lower than those of the fecal sample. The total bacterial gene (16S rDNA) 

concentration in the air of layer and broiler was 10<sup>6</sup>copies&middot;m<sup>-

3</sup>, and that of the other typical genes was about 

10<sup>4</sup>copies&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>. And the outdoor concentration was much lower 

than the indoor concentration. The proportions of antibiotic resistance genes and 

conditional pathogenic bacteria in the air were higher than those in the fecal samples 

and the outdoor proportions were lower than the indoor proportions. Preliminary results 

of this study indicated that feces was an important source of antibiotic resistance 

genes, conditional pathogenic bacteria and class1 integron. Aerosolization degrees of 

genes in feces were different. This study will provide the basic data for both source 

tracking of antibiotic resistance genes and pathogens from CAFOs and risk assessment of 

pollution of CAFOs in the surrounding air environment. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

group; with release rate below 0.02 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. Root weight density, root 

length density, root surface area density were major factors, which increased the 

proportion of particles in sediment with diameter of below 50 &mu;m, therefore decreased 

sediment resuspension against hydraulic disturbance; the root system also enriched total 

nitrogen in sediment and absorbed phosphorus from sediment. These five kinds of plants in 

terrestrial-aquatic transverse actually repressed nitrogen and phosphorus release from 

sediment in two ways mentioned above, Paspalum distichum L. and Iris pseudacorus L. 

possessed the best effect due to their developed root system, followed by Leersia

Abstract:Long period start-up is one of the main restraining factors of the single-stage 

completely autotrophic nitrogen removal over nitrite (CANON) process. This study 

investigated the fast start-up of the CANON process initiated by a submerged biological 

aerated filter (SBAF) method. With conventional activated sludge from the secondary 

sedimentation tank of municipal waste water treatment plants as the seed sludge, the 

CANON process was successfully started up after the acclimation of sludge microorganisms 

for 48 days under the experimental conditions of (30&plusmn;2)&#8451;,organic carbon free 

and controlled dissolved oxygen(stage I: 0.3-0.5mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>; stage II-IV: 

0.1-0.2mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>), with the maximum removal rates of ammonia nitrogen and 

total nitrogen achieved at 99.9% and 86.5%, respectively. The population structure 

characteristics of microorganisms in the system were studied using high-throughput 

sequencing of 16S rDNA amplicon. The results demonstrated that the two dominant microbial 

strains in the system were Proteobacteria and Planctomycetes, accounting for 26.6% and 

17.8%, respectively. The major contributors of nitrogen removal were Nitrosomonas in 

&beta;-Proteobacteria and Candidatus brocadia in Brocadiae. Through the above 

experiments, it was revealed that the investigated SBAF based CANON possesses had the 

advantages of fast start-up, efficient biological nitrogen removal and stable operation

Abstract:This study investigated the spectral characteristics of fluorescent dissolved 

organic matter (FDOM) in sediments of Lihu Lake using three-dimensional excitation-

emission matrix fluorescence spectroscopy (EEMS), and discussed the correlation between 

source of FDOM and organic or inorganic nitrogen. The results indicated that the surface 

sediments in Lihu Lake consisted of three fluorescence fractions (II), humic-like C1

(240,310/420 nm), C2(260,360/460 nm), and tryptophan-like C3(225,275/340 nm). The total 

fluorescence intensity ranged from 49.97 to 159.19 R.U.&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, and 

decreased from east to west with higher values in coast district than in lake center. The 

relative proportions of C1, C2, and C3 were 33.63%, 26.87% and 39.49%, respectively. The 

fluorescence index (FI), biological origin index (BIX), and humification index (HIX) 

ranged from 1.96 to 2.22, 0.69 to 0.94, and 2.62 to 4.39. It indicated that the main 

source of FDOM in Lihu Lake was from endogenesis, and mainly derived from microbes, algae 

and other newly autochthonous sources. The results illustrated, the fluorescence 

intensity had significant correlation with organic and inorganic nitrogen(P&lt;0.01), and 

had higher correlation with inorganic nitrogen. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Anaerobic ammonium oxidation (ANAMMOX) has been regarded as an efficient process 

to treat high-strength wastewater without organic carbon source. To investigate the 

nitrogen removal performance of ANAMMOX in the presence of organic carbon source can 

broaden its application in organic wastewater treatment. In this work, an anaerobic 

sequencing batch reactor (ASBR) was used to study the effect of organic carbon source on 

ANAMMOX process. The experimental results indicated that the activity of anaerobic 

ammonia oxidizing bacteria (AAOB) decreased by 84.2% when 200 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>COD 

of glucose was added. When sodium acetate was added, the activity of AAOB was affected 

little. Besides, it even promoted the activity with COD less than 120 mg&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>. The effect of sucrose on ANAMMOX process was similar to that of sodium acetate 

and the maximum specific ANAMMOX activity (SAA) increased by 25.0% with 80 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>COD. When citric acid was added, the maximum SAA peaked with 80 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>COD. The order of ANAMMOX promotion resulted from organic carbon 

source was sucrose, sodium acetate, citric acid and glucose. With addition of organic 

carbon source, nitrate could also be removed through the synergy of ANAMMOX and 

denitrification, and the total nitrogen removal efficiency increased. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:In order to analyze the composition, distribution and burial characteristics of 

nitrogen in sediments of Dianchi Lake in the last hundred years, 6 sediment cores were 

sampled in July 2014 to determine the contents of different nitrogen species and 

sedimentary age sequence. The integrated results demonstrated a high content of total 

nitrogen in sediments ranging from 1 263.68-7 155.17 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>. The 

contents of nitrate nitrogen and ammonium nitrogen were low, which were 10.00-144.00 

mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>and 9.20-146.50 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. Organic 

nitrogen was the main component in the sediments, ranging from 255.80 to 5 644.25 

mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, composing a large average percentage of 91.26%. In addition, 

the nitrogen pollution of sediment in Dianchi Lake has reached a high level and is 

becoming serious since 1970s, which surged in the late 1990s. The spatial difference of 

total nitrogen was obvious, with comparably the most in the south, less in the north and 

least in the center. The average deposition rate was changing from 0.092 g&middot;

(cm<sup>2</sup>&middot;a)<sup>-1</sup>to 0.187 g&middot;(cm<sup>2</sup>&middot;a)<sup>-

1</sup>in the last 100 years and increased first, then declined, finally showed a slight 

upward trend over time. The burial rate of total nitrogen in sediment increased over time 

and almost grew up straightly after 1990, which decreased from the south to the north of 

Dianchi Lake in space. It was estimated that the reserves of total nitrogen, organic 

nitrogen, nitrate nitrogen, ammonium nitrogen in the sediment were 92 139.15 t, 86 745.62 

t, 2 464.16 t, 2 929.37 t, respectively, from 1900 to 2014. &copy; 2017, Science Press.

Abstract:Methane (CH<inf>4</inf>) and nitrous oxide (N<inf>2</inf>O) are two of the most 

important non-CO<inf>2</inf>greenhouse gases. And municipal sewage treatment plant is an 

important anthropogenic source of CH<inf>4</inf>and N<inf>2</inf>O. Therefore, it is 

essential to measure the production and emission of CH<inf>4</inf>and N<inf>2</inf>O 

during biological wastewater treatment process. The surface emission flux isolation 

chamber was employed to collect the gas sample from the Xi'an No.3 WWTP (the Orbal 

oxidation ditch process) and Xi'an NO.4 WWTP (A/A/O process) to determine the contents of 

methane and nitrous oxide. And the effects of temperature and dissolved oxygen 

concentration on non-CO<inf>2</inf>greenhouse gases emission from Xi'an NO.4 WWTP were 

discussed. The results showed that methane and nitrous oxide emission factors from No.3 

WWTP were 1 181 mg CH<inf>4</inf>per m<sup>3</sup>influent and 36.20 mg N<inf>2</inf>O 

per m<sup>3</sup>influent, respectively while those from the No.4 WWTP were 209 mg 

CH<inf>4</inf>per m<sup>3</sup>influent and 54.64 mg N<inf>2</inf>O per 

m<sup>3</sup>influent. In addition, the important influencing factors which affected 

methane and nitrous oxide emission were temperature, aeration strategy, DO, nitrite 

oxidation rate and specific methanogenic activity. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Famous as the world cultural heritage, West Lake in Hangzhou city has plenty of 

soft sediments with high organic matter content. To search the countermeasures for 

internal phosphorus release reduction from the sediment, the sediment core incubation was 

conducted to understand the efficacy of Phoslock&#9415; on internal phosphorus release in 

spring, summer and winter, respectively. The results showed that the internal phosphorus 

release fluxes in winter and spring were relatively low, with averaged values in the 

entire lake of 0.13 mg&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>and 0.29 mg&middot;

(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>, respectively, while the release flux was 3.29 

mg&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>in summer, more than ten times higher than 

those in spring and winter. It was estimated that 23.7 kg of phosphorus could be released 

from sediment in the entire lake every day in summer. Spatially, the phosphorus release 

flux was related to organic matter contents in sediments, but not the phosphorus or 

bioavailable phosphorus contents in sediments in West Lake. With Phoslock&#9415; added at 

the rate of 630 g&middot;m<sup>-2</sup>, sediment phosphorus release was successfully 

controlled, which reduced the phosphorus concentration in the lake water to less than 

0.010 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. Especially during summer time, the sediment phosphorus 

release was reduced by 98% after Phoslock&#9415; application. The research suggested that 

Phoslock&#9415; is powerful for phosphorus control even for sediments with high organic 

matter content, which could be considered in ecological restoration of WEst Lake. &copy;

Abstract:The study aimed to find out the dynamic changes of selenium (Se) uptake with 

crops growing and to provide better understanding on the translocation of Se in soil-

plant system. Pot experiments and laboratory analysis were carried out, in which 6 crops 

were planted for eight weeks in the soils treated with selenite and selenate. The results 

showed that there was a significant difference in the plant dynamic uptake pattern for 

selenite and selenate. Se concentration in shoots and roots of all tested plants 

continuously declined with growth since the third week after planting for selenate 

treatment; while Se concentration in roots of plants gradually increased with the growth, 

and that for shoots firstly increased and then leveled off or decreased for selenite 

treatment. Crops could accumulate Se throughout the whole growing period, while 80% of 

the Se in plants was uptaken in the first 6 weeks. Among the 6 tested plants, the Se 

concentration in the shoots and roots of mustard was the highest, followed by the shoots 

of wheat for selenate treatment. The Se concentration in shoots of carrot was the 

highest, while that in roots was the lowest for selenite treatment. For the same Se 

treatment, the Se concentrations in both roots and shoots of broccoli, purple cabbage and 

flowering Chinese cabbage were similar. Broccoli, purple cabbage, flowering Chinese 

cabbage, mustard and wheat had higher translocation ability to transport selenate than 

selenite from roots to shoots, whereas carrot had the same ability for translocating 

selenite and selenate. Biological dilution affected the dynamic changes of the Se content 

in crops, especially for selenate treatment, and a significant negative correlation 

between Se concentration of plants and their biomass further verified this. However, the 

changes of biomass of plants with growing period couldn't explain the total inverse 

dynamic uptake pattern for selenite and selenate. A significant positive correlation was 

observed between Se accumulations amount in six crops with available Se changes in soil 

during the corresponding growing period for selenate treatment, while no such correlation 

was found for selenite treatment. Se accumulation in crops grown on selenite-treated soil 

accounted for 0.5%-18.1% of soil available Se, whereas that in selenate treatment was 

1.1-4.5 times of soil available Se except for carrot. In conclusion, the dynamic changes 

of Se uptake with crop growth were the comprehensive results of the absorption and 

transport capacity of crops, Se availability in soil and biological dilution. It should 

be considered as a whole in the selenium biofortification. &copy; 2017, Science Press.

Abstract:The specific characteristics and mechanism of adsorption of Cu(II) were studied 

by using HAP/C composite (PBGC-HAP/C) as adsorbent, and using pH value of the solution 

system, initial concentration of Cu(II) and particle size of the material as influential 

factors. The results showed that when the solution was weak acid (pH=5), the adsorption 

effect was the best; the increase of the initial concentration of the reaction system was 

not conducive to the enhancement of the adsorption effect; and the decrease of the 

particle size of the adsorbent facilitated the adsorption process. The pseudo-second-

order kinetic model could accurately describe the adsorption process, and the calculated 

adsorption capacity (0.99, 1.93, 4.03 mg&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>) was close to the 

experimental measured values (0.99, 1.93, 4.05mg&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>); Langmuir model 

could fit the adsorption process very well, which indicated that adsorption was monolayer 

adsorption and the increase of temperature was conducive to adsorption. The 

thermodynamics test results of &Delta;G<sup>&theta;</sup>&lt;0, 

&Delta;S<sup>&theta;</sup>&gt;0 and &Delta;H<sup>&theta;</sup>&gt;0 showed that the 

adsorption process was endothermic and spontaneous. Through comparative analysis of the 

SEM, EDS, XRD and FTIR of materials before and after adsorption, the results indicated 

that the chemical complexation reaction of Cu(II) with the oxygen functional groups on 

the surface of PBGC-HAP/C was the main purification mechanism, which was accompanied with 

physical adsorption, electrostatic adsorption and ion exchange. &copy; 2017, Science

Abstract:In order to investigate the effects of simulated acid rain on soil respiration 

and heterotrophic respiration in a secondary forest, a field experiment was carried out. 

A split-plot experiment was arranged in field. There were 4 blocks; each block had two 

main plots which were trenched and un-trenched plots. In each main plot, 4 simulated acid 

rain treatments of control (CK), pH 4.0 (A1), pH 3.0 (A2), and pH 2.0 (A3) were randomly 

assigned. Soil respiration in the un-trenched plots and heterotrophic respiration in the 

trenched plots were measured weekly. Soil temperature and moisture at a depth of 5 cm 

were measured during the respiration measurements. The results indicated that different 

simulated acid rain treatments exhibited similar seasonal patterns of soil respiration 

and heterotrophic respiration. Heterotrophic respiration in the trenched plots was 

significantly lower than soil respiration in the un-trenched plots. The annual mean soil 

respiration rates for the CK, A1, A2, and A3 treatments in the un-trenched plots were 

(2.47&plusmn;0.31), (2.52&plusmn;0.22), (2.38&plusmn;0.17), and (2.43&plusmn;0.22) 

&mu;mol&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;s)<sup>-1</sup>, respectively, while the annual mean 

heterotrophic respiration rates for the 4 treatments in the trenched plots were 

(1.55&plusmn;0.10), (1.65&plusmn;0.22), (1.77&plusmn;0.08), and (1.78&plusmn;0.27) 

&mu;mol&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;s)<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. ANOVA showed that 

simulated acid rain had no significant effects on soil respiration in the un-trenched 

plots and heterotrophic respiration in the trenched plots. Regression analysis suggested 

that there was a significant linear regression relationship between soil respiration and 

heterotrophic respiration. Simulated acid rain significantly (P&lt;0.001) decreased the 

ratio of soil respiration to heterotrophic respiration. Soil temperature was the main 

controlling factor regulating the seasonal patterns of soil respiration and heterotrophic 

respiration for each of the SAR treatment, while soil moisture had no significant effects 

on the seasonal variability in soil respiration and heterotrophic respiration. &copy;

Abstract:Pilot-scale performances for ultrafiltration of Dongjiang river water without 

and with micro-coagulation and coagulation-adsorption-sedimentation pretreatments were 

conducted to investigate the effects of pretreatments on hydraulic irreversible fouling 

of ultrafiltration short processes. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) imaging, high 

performance size exclusion chromatography (HPSEC) and fluorescence excitation-emission 

matrix (EEM) were employed to identify foulants responsible for irreversible fouling 

during ultrafiltration with and without pretreatments. The results showed that the 

hydraulic irreversible fouling rate was 0.16 kPa&middot;d<sup>-1</sup>with micro-

coagulation pretreatment at 10 L&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;h)<sup>-1</sup>, while the 

rate without pretreatment was 0.32 kPa&middot;d<sup>-1</sup>at the same flux. Meanwhile, 

the fouling rate with coagulation-adsorption-sedimentation pretreatment was almost zero 

at the same flux. Furthermore, when the flux increased to 17 L&middot;

(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;h)<sup>-1</sup>, the irreversible fouling was not observable with 

coagulation-adsorption-sedimentation pretreatment (backwashing every 24 hours). 

Properties of foulants from external membrane and internal membrane after backwashing 

showed that the protein-like and fulvic-like substances were responsible for irreversible 

fouling in Dongjiang river water. Furthermore, structural alteration of cake layer 

resulted in less cake resistance and higher backwash efficiency after micro-coagulation 

pretreatment, leading to less irreversible fouling. Coagulation-adsorption-sedimentation 

pretreatment decreased irreversible fouling with higher removal efficiency of protein-

like and fulvic substances, which were the foulants responsible for irreversible fouling 

during ultrafiltration. Both micro-coagulation and coagulation-adsorption-sedimentation 

pretreatments decreased irreversible fouling during ultrafiltration short process. &copy;

Abstract:To investigate the effects of zero valent iron (Fe<sup>0</sup>) on the decline 

of antibiotic resistance genes during thermophilic anaerobic digestion of sludge, the 

abundances of seven tetracycline resistance genes (TC-ARGs, including tetA, tetC, tetG, 

tetM, tetO, tetW, and tetX) and class 1 integron gene (intI1) were quantified by 

quantitative PCR (qPCR). Also, the concentrations of volatile fatty acids (VFAs) were 

determined. The correlations between the abundances of TC-ARGs and intI1 gene and the 

concentrations of VFAs were discussed. The results showed that appropriate dose of 

Fe<sup>0</sup>such as 0.10 g&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>VSS could enhance the anaerobic 

digestion process of sludge, and the production of total VFAs and acetic acid increased 

significantly. The decrease in the abundances of TC-ARGs and intI1 gene was also 

enhanced. However, excessive Fe<sup>0</sup>such as 1.17 g&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>VSS could 

not further improve the reduction in the abundances of TC-ARGs and intI1 gene, probably 

resulted from the occurrence of horizontal gene transfer. The abundances of TC-ARGs 

except tetO gene, as well as intI1 gene exhibited significant negative correlation with 

the concentration of acetic acid, indicating that acetic acid probably had an enhanced 

effect on the decline of TC-ARGs and intI1 gene during thermophilic anaerobic digestion 

of sludge. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Cave air CO<inf>2</inf>makes notable impacts on the deposition and dissolution 

of speleothem, affecting the stability of carbonate landscape and comfort of tourist in 

show caves. Cave air CO<inf>2</inf>is a key factor of karstification occurrence. Studying 

the mechanism of cave air CO<inf>2</inf>variation is important for understanding the 

pattern of karstification and cave protection. In order to understand the temporal and 

spatial variation characteristics and its possible controlling factors, inside and 

outside cave air CO<inf>2</inf>, hydrogeochemical index, temperature, relative humidity 

as well as precipitation and tourist amount were observed in the Jiguan Cave, which lies 

in the west Henan Province of south-north geographical boundary of China. Nearly five 

years monitoring of air CO<inf>2</inf>of Jiguan Cave was carried out from December, 2011 

to May, 2016. A diurnal monitoring was performed from 19 May, 2016 to 20 May, 2016. The 

results indicated that the cave air CO<inf>2</inf>showed notable spatial and seasonal 

variations. &#9312;From the spatial variation, the sites closer to cave entrances, 

affected by strong cave ventilation, had lower pCO<inf>2</inf>. In addition, the special 

structure of Jiguan Cave and soil air pCO<inf>2</inf>variation, vegetation respiration 

and soil microbial activity, which in turn were associated with changes in climate and 

environment also contributed to the variation of cave air pCO<inf>2</inf>. &#9313; On a 

seasonal scale, cave air CO<inf>2</inf>was higher in summer and lower in winter. This 

variation of cave air CO<inf>2</inf>was mainly influenced by tourism activity as well as 

karstification. &#9314;Tourist amount was the mainly factor that influenced the variation 

of cave air CO<inf>2</inf>on a daily scale. Because of tourism activity, cave air 

CO<inf>2</inf>was increased, and also cave environment was disturbed. All of these 

intimidate the better conservation of cave environment. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:Because of the limited dissolved organic matter removal efficiency in 

conventional pre-ozonation-coagulation process, the hybrid ozonation-coagulation (HOC) 

process was developed for wastewater reclamation in this study. In this process, 

coagulation and ozonation could synchronize within a single unit. Compared with the pre-

ozonation-coagulation process and traditional coagulation process at the same coagulants 

dosage, the HOC process exhibited higher treatment efficiency, especially better organic 

matter removal performance at each pH value, which were 37.96% and 39.66%, respectively. 

In order to obtain the removal mechanism of dissolved organic matters by HOC process, 

ozone decomposition at two pH values either with or without 

AlCl<inf>3</inf>&middot;6H<inf>2</inf>O was monitored in this study. The results showed 

that higher pH and the addition of coagulant could accelerate ozone decay. In addition, 

para-chlorobenzoic acid (p-CBA) was chosen as the hydroxyl radical (&middot;OH) probe 

compound to indirectly calculate the &middot;OH exposure. The results revealed that the 

HOC process was involved in &middot;OH reaction and coagulant could promote ozone 

decomposition due to its enhancing effect on &middot;OH production during the ozonation 

process. Furthermore, the ozone depletion occurred more quickly at high pH due to its 

reaction with hydroxide ions (OH<sup>-</sup>), leading to the formation of &middot;OH 

through a series of chain reactions. Moreover, the effects of tert-butanol, a well-known 

&middot;OH inhibitor on ozone decay and p-CBA decomposition were also investigated. The 

results indicated that ozone depletion and p-CBA decomposition were significantly 

inhibited by tert-butanol, which further proved that ozone was decomposed into &middot;OH 

radicals through chain reactions. In the HOC process, Al-based coagulants and hydrolyzed 

products could act as catalysts to enhance ozone decomposition into &middot;OH which is a 

powerful oxidant to improve the organics removal efficiency. &copy; 2017, Science Press.

Abstract:To investigate the dry deposition pattern of particulate matter and lead in 

urban Beijing, dry deposited particles were collected based on a surrogate surface 

between December 2013 and November 2014 and subjected to elemental analysis by using 

microwave digestion and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. The results showed 

that dry deposition fluxes of particle mass and total lead were 0.84 t&middot;

(hm<sup>2</sup>&middot;a)<sup>-1</sup>and 7.56 mg&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;a)<sup>-

1</sup>, respectively, with a seasonal trend of spring&gt;winter&gt;autumn~summer, 

exhibiting a similar temporal pattern to that of coarse particles. In addition, dry 

deposition flux of water-soluble lead was 3.14 mg&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;a)<sup>-

1</sup>. It was found that the ratio of soluble fraction to total lead in dry deposited 

particles reached up to 43%, coinciding with a seasonal variation of ambient sulfur 

dioxide. The findings highlighted the anthropogenic imprints on the dry deposition flux 

of particles and heavy metals as well as the solubility of lead. This study also provides 

a first-hand dataset that can be used to assess ecological and environmental impacts of 

dry deposited lead, and an up-to-date scientific basis for the crafting abatement 

strategies to further reduce emission of heavy metals in China. &copy; 2017, Science

Abstract:PM<inf>2.5</inf>samples were collected from 11 sampling sites in the coastal 

city group along western Taiwan Straits region, China, and these heavy metal elements 

(Zn, Cu, Pb, Ni, Cr, As) were detected using particle-induced X-ray emission (PIXE) 

method. The pollution characteristics, enrichment factors and source apportionment of 

heavy metals in PM<inf>2.5</inf>were analyzed, and furthermore, their human health risks 

were determined. The result showed concentration distribution was obviously different 

between PM<inf>2.5</inf>and heavy metals in the city group, for the main sources (e.g. 

construction dust and ground dust) for PM<inf>2.5</inf>were not the main contribution to 

these heavy metals. The enrichment factors of Zn, Cu, Pb, Mn, Ni, Cr, As exceeded 10, 

which suggested these metals were enriched and significantly impacted by anthropogenic 

pollution. Three main groups of heavy metals in PM<inf>2.5</inf>were identified by 

principal component analysis (PCA-MLR), such as coal combustion and traffic emissions 

(70.59%), multiple sources (coal and oil combustion, pyrometallurgical process, 17.55%) 

and other industry (11.86%). The risk levels for carcinogenic heavy metals (Ni, Cr, As) 

and non-carcinogenic heavy metals (Zn, Cu, Pb, Mn) were lower than the average level of 

risk acceptance (10<sup>-6</sup>), which suggested these heavy metals did not cause harm 

to human health in these cities. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Kaolin commonly exists in water, and it has an important impact on the water 

treatment processes and contaminants'migration and transformation. In this study, PAC was 

used as flocculating agent to systematically investigate the effects of UV radiation on 

the coagulation process of kaolin by jar test. The results showed that under neutral and 

acidic conditions, UV radiation could promote the coagulation process of kaolin 

suspension. When the solution pH, coagulant dosage and irradiation time were 7.0, 30 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>and 2.0 h, respectively, the kaolin remove rate of effluent after 

coagulation increased from 81.05% to 93.90% by using UV radiation. This might be related 

to the decrease of -OH stretching vibration absorption peak and the enhancement of Si-O 

stretching vibration absorption peak and Si-O bending vibration absorption peak after UV 

radiation, so that the number of the active spot(-OH)on kaolin surface declined. These 

changes might lead to decrease of the negative charge on kaolin surface, which promoted 

kaolin suspension to precipitate in coagulation process. However, under alkaline 

conditions, its settlement performance was slightly lower than the water samples without 

ultraviolet radiation treatment. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:In order to better understand the effects of nitrogen application on 

accumulation, translocation and distribution of selenium in winter wheat and to provide 

theoretical reference for reasonable nitrogen application and increasing selenium content 

of grains. A pot experiment was carried out under greenhouse conditions with Se1 (0.74 

mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>) or Se2 (2.60 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>) levels of selenium, 

and each Se treatment was supplied with N1 (100 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>) or N2 (200 

mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>) levels of nitrogen, respectively. Selenium concentrations and 

biomass amounts of different parts of wheat were determined at jointing and maturity 

stage. The results showed that grain yield increased with increasing nitrogen levels by 

13.2% and 24.0% in Se1 and Se2 treatment, respectively. Regardless of N rate, Se 

concentration of wheat increased with raising Se amended rate (P&lt;0.01). Increasing 

nitrogen application could promote Se uptake of root and thus increase the selenium 

concentration of wheat grains and leaves, which was greater in Se1 treatment than in Se2 

treatments. Se concentrations in wheat grain increased by 22.6% and 12.1% with the 

increasing N application rate in low and high Se treatment, respectively. The 

distribution ratios of Se in each organ ranked the same as BCFs, following the order of 

leaf&gt;grain&gt;glume&gt;root. Increasing N fertilization increased the distribution 

ratio of Se in grains by 11.1% and 25.9% in low and high selenate treatments, 

respectively. High nitrogen fertilization could promote uptake and translocation of Se in 

wheat under low Se conditions, and improve Se use efficiency as well in the agricultural 

production. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:There are lots of problems in the domestic remediation of Cr(VI) contaminated 

soil field, such as lack of the key processing parameters, poor long-term effect and so 

on. The Cr(VI) heavy polluted surface soil was sampled from an electroplating site in 

North-China, and then treated with five different reducing reagents. At the same time, 

the on-line ORP probes and interval sampling test were chosen to monitor the reaction 

process, and to explore the reaction rate and effect. The results showed that No.4 

reagent had the highest Cr(VI) reduction effect, reaching up to 99.5%, and the minimum 

soil Cr(VI) concentration could reach 2.4 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>. The No.1 and No.4 

reagents had relatively faster reducing rates. There were obvious difference in ORP and 

pH monitoring values between different reductants, for example, the No.1 reagent kept the 

ORP value stable at around -400 mV. The No.4 reagent gradually increased the value from 

-200 mV to 100 mV since 30h, and then kept stable. According to the pH difference among 

different reductants, the No.4 reagent was the best and kept the pH value at around 7. 

Taking together the final effect and process key parameters, the No.4 reagent was the 

best. The scale-up experiment was operated with process monitoring, and the ORP and 

conductivity values showed that the reduction reaction took about 160 h. This work would 

provide theoretical basis for controlling the maintenance condition and reaction process 

in soil Cr(VI) remediation. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:To study the seasonal change characteristics and form composition of nitrogen 

and phosphorus output concentration and pollutant discharge load with rainfall 

characteristics at the outlet of Gufu river small watershed, the quality and quantity of 

water combined with natural rainfall events were monitored from January to December 2014. 

The results showed that the annual runoff volume of the Gufu river small watershed was 

0.6&times;10<sup>8</sup>m<sup>3</sup>. The runoff was concentrated in raining season 

(from July to September), accounting for 63.9%. There was significant(P&lt;0.01) positive 

correlation between the runoff flow and the annual rainfall. The annual emission of total 

nitrogen (TN) was 1 432 t&middot;a<sup>-1</sup>, and the emission was 853 

t&middot;a<sup>-1</sup>during the raining season, accounting for 59.6% of annual TN 

emission content. The dissolved nitrogen was the main form of nitrogen emission, and the 

emission load of each month accounted for 55.4%-91.3% of TN. The positive correlation 

between the nitrate nitrogen concentration and rainfall was significant (P&lt;0.05). The 

annual emission of total phosphorus (TP) was 563.1 t&middot;a<sup>-1</sup>, and the 

content during the raining season accounted for 78.6% of TP annual emission content. The 

particle phosphorus (PP) was the main form of phosphorus emission, and the emission load 

of each month accounted for 41.9%-79.5% of TP. There was significant(P&lt;0.01) positive 

correlation between the annual rainfall, sediment and TP, PP. The correlation between the 

total dissolved phosphorus concentration and rainfall was significant (P&lt;0.05). &copy;

Abstract:Fine particles(PM<inf>2.5</inf>) collected by two middle volume air samplers in 

the suburbs of Baoding and the urban area of Beijing during Jan 10<sup>th</sup>to 

17<sup>th</sup>, 2015, were used to compare the community characteristics of cultivable 

bacteria in the two sites. In this study, we observed the particle morphology of 

PM<inf>2.5</inf>using a field emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM), analyzed the 

air mass transportation source of the two sampling sites by the NOAA/ARL HYSPLIT-4 

backward trajectory model, and measured the concentrations of the major water-soluble 

ions and heavy metal elements in the PM<inf>2.5</inf>samples using ion chromatography, 

continuous flow analyzer and ICP-MS. The results indicated that, the cultivable bacteria 

of PM<inf>2.5</inf>contained three phyla, which were Firmicutes, Actinobacteria and 

&alpha;-Proteobacteria. Nine genera and 17 species of cultivable airborne bacteria were 

isolated and identified. The most abundant phylum was Firmicutes. The Gram-positive 

bacteria accounted for more than 90%. The spore-forming Bacillus which was the dominant 

species contributed 68.15% and 75% to the total bacteria in urban Beijing and the suburbs 

of Baoding, respectively. The difference in the community structure of PM<inf>2.5</inf>'s 

cultivable bacteria in the two sampling areas may be affected by PM<inf>2.5</inf>'s 

physical and chemical properties and air mass transportation. &copy; 2017, Science Press.

Abstract:Mercury (Hg) in the aquatic environment is easy to accumulate in fish. In order 

to study the effect of the sediments on Hg accumulation in fish in the water-level-

fluctuation zone of the Three Gorges Reservoir, we conducted a 90-days simulated flooding 

experiment by using the sediments with different concentrations of Hg. Our study showed 

that the concentrations of the total mercury (THg) and methyl mercury (MeHg) in the 

overlying water increased after flooding, and the concentrations in the muscle of fish 

kept increasing in the period of experiment, the concentrations in the viscera and head 

increased in the earlier period but seemingly decreased in the later period. The 

bioaccumulated Hg content in the fresh was higher than that in the viscera and head, 

between which there was no significant difference. Compared with the control group (no 

sediment), the presence of sediments obviously increased the content of Hg bioaccumulated 

in fish, and the bioaccumulated Hg level increased with the Hg concentrations in 

sediment. The THg and MeHg in different fish parts presented a similar variation trend 

with the BCF ranging 1.93&times;10<sup>5</sup>-8.89&times;10<sup>5</sup>for MeHg and 

1.3&times;10<sup>3</sup>-12.8&times;10<sup>3</sup>for inorganic mercury, indicating that 

MeHg was more prone to accumulate in fish. The MeHg in fish was significantly related 

with THg, and accumulated MeHg occupied about 80.1% (muscle), 79.3% (visceral) and 66.7% 

(head) of increased THg. After the reflooding of the sediment in the water-level-

fluctuating zone, net methylation could occur with MeHg as the product, and then MeHg 

would diffuse to overlay water, further increasing the Hg bioaccumulation in fish. 

Therefore, the potential pollution risk of Hg in the water-level-fluctuationg zone with 

large area of the Three Gorges Reservoir cannot be ignored. &copy; 2017, Science Press.

Abstract:The long term and high dosage application of livestock manure may result in 

heavy metal accumulation and migration in the soil, which may endanger food security and 

affect the top soil heavy metal environmental capacity. Thus, one of the most important 

tasks for prevention of soil heavy metal pollution is scientific determination of the 

safe use load of heavy metals in livestock manure. A 4-year field plot experiment was 

carried out to quantitatively study the accumulation and migration characteristics of 

heavy metals from pig and chicken manure in soil profiles and the differences of 

bioavailability. The results showed that the contents of Cu and Cd increased 

significantly by 43.8%-118.6% and 28.2%-44.9% in topsoil(0-15 cm) after 4-consecutive 

year application of pig manure, and the contents of Cu, Zn, Cd, Cr, As, Pb also increased 

by 29.7%-48.5%, 239%-456%, 19.9%-80.8%, 40.4%-163%,11.8%-22.0% and 80.3%~95.0% obviously 

after application of chicken manure. The accumulation rates of Cu and Zn in topsoil were 

76.4%-119% and 14.2%-20.4% with pig manure, 72.1%-88.7% and 63.9%-78.9% with chicken 

manure. Under a high dosage of pig and chicken manure, Cu and Zn migrated to a deeper 

soil evidently. Applying 60 t&middot;hm<sup>-2</sup>of pig manure after 4-consecutive 

year, Cu could migrate to 15-30 cm soil layer, Zn migrated to 30-60 cm soil layer with 

chicken manure. Except topsoil, the contents of Cr, Cd, As, Pb did not significantly 

increase in other soil layers. 4-year continuous application of chicken manure 

significantly decreased the contents of Cu and Cd, but increased the contents of Zn and 

Cr in wheat grain and the content of Zn in wheat straw. Pig manure significantly 

decreased the content of Zn in wheat grain, but increased As content with 60 

t&middot;hm<sup>-2</sup>, the contents of Cu and As in wheat straw also increased 

significantly. Besides, the cumulative rate of heavy metals in wheat was no more than 6%, 

wheat grain carried out more Cu, Zn than straw, but the Cd, Cr, As, Pb were opposite. The 

cumulative rate of heavy metals in wheat decreased with the increasing application of 

manure. This research has an important significance in scientific determination of the 

heavy metal loads of plow layer, ensuring the quality and safety of agricultural 

production, and providing a scientific basis for the source control of soil heavy metal 

pollution and the safety production of agricultural goods. &copy; 2017, Science Press.

Abstract:The consumption of vegetables is a probable cause of Cd exposure in several 

world areas including China. In this study, we selected the prefecture of Youxian, 

southern China, as a case to analyze the influences of various environmental factors on 

Cd accumulation in vegetables based on a large scale agricultural and climatologically 

survey and collection of 585 irrigation water and 625 paired soil-vegetables samples. The 

results showed the concentration of Cd differed greatly in the irrigation water, soil and 

vegetables. The average daily dose for the adult populations consumed vegetables cropping 

in affected areas was slightly above the tolerable daily intake level, suggesting a 

potential health risk. The vegetables Cd uptake factor followed the natural lognormal 

distribution, and had a 10 percentile probability of higher than 1. The PUF values 

exhibited comparable results and appeared to define a reasonable and consistent Cd risk 

assessment. Many environmental variables (soil pH, soil organic matter, cation-exchange 

capacity, rainfall, water pH, and nitrogenous fertilizer usage) exhibited significant 

correlations with the concentrations of Cd in the soil-vegetable system. The canonical 

corresponding analysis and path model analysis found that soil pH and soil organic matter 

(SOM) had major direct effects on PUF. The close correlations between rainfall, water pH, 

nitrogen fertilizer usage and PUF were mainly resuled from the direct effect of soil pH 

and SOM. The high field-moisture capacity in the study area generated a rapid 

acidification causing the migration of Cd to weaker bounding sites thus promoting the 

vegetables uptake. The excessive application of nitrogen fertilizers led to a substantial 

loss of SOM and worsening of soil acidification ultimately causing increasing Cd 

accumulation in vegetables. Considering that the soil pH and SOM in the study area were 

maintained at a low level, the accumulation risk of Cd in soil-vegetable system needs to 

be addressed. The influence of environmental factors on vegetables accumulating Cd needs 

to be fully considered for better and safer vegetables production. &copy; 2017, Science

Abstract:Two different sludge composting products (with and without biochar) were applied 

in field to study the variations of total mercury (THg) and methylmercury (MeHg) in soil 

and plants, as well as their migration in the soil-plant system and accumulation ability 

in plants during the sludge compost land use process. The results indicated that the 

concentrations THg and MeHg in soil increased after applying sewage sludge compost 

products, while the THg level was still lower than the secondary standard of national 

soil environmental quality. Biochar was speculated to probably promote the soil mercury 

methylation with lower MeHg/THg ratios in different soil treatments. THg concentrations 

in mature plants were significantly lower than those in seedling stage, but MeHg levels 

were higher than those in seedling stage. An obvious influence of composting on MeHg 

enrichment in plants was observed, and this similar effect was not found for THg 

enrichment. MeHg concentration in the soils applied with biochar compost was 

significantly higher than that without applying biochar compost soil, while MeHg in plant 

presented a contrary trend with higher level observed in no-biochar compost soil, 

suggesting that the addition of biochar could be in favour of soil MeHg formation and 

inhibit the MeHg accumulation in plants by influencing its migration. Since a strong MeHg 

accumulation ability with BCF of 1.24-14.63 was present in plant, the mercury ecological 

risk in soil environment caused by long-term fertilizing should be noticed. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:In the present study, the accumulation and biotransformation of arsenate in 

typical freshwater algae species were examined under long-term influence of titanium 

dioxide nanoparticles (nano-TiO<inf>2</inf>). Results showed that different algae species 

had largely varied capacities of accumulation and biotransformation of arsenate. The 

arsenic accumulation reached (819.66&plusmn;11.25) &mu;g&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>DW in 

Scenedesmus obliquus, which was higher than that in Microcystis aeruginosa of 

(355.95&plusmn;8.31) &mu;g&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>DW. Nano-TiO<inf>2</inf>increased arsenic 

accumulation in these exposed algae species, and then reduced arsenic levels in the 

relative culture media. Furthermore, nano-TiO<inf>2</inf>improved arsenic 

biotransformation in the exposed algae, and the organic arsenic was dimethylarsinous acid 

(DMA) and monomethylarsonous acid (MMA) in Microcystis aeruginosa and Scenedesmus 

obliquus, respectively. Additionally, the release of organic arsenic was lower from the 

exposed algae in nano-TiO<inf>2</inf>treatments than in the control, indicating that 

nano-TiO<inf>2</inf>couldn't stimulate the release of organic arsenic from algae under 

long-term exposure. These results could improve insights on the ecological risk of nano-

TiO<inf>2</inf>associated with arsenic in the environment. &copy; 2017, Science Press.

SRT were studied by inoculation ANAMMOX granules of different proportions in two same 

specifications of SBR reactor. During the experiment, the temperature was controlled at 

30&#8451;&plusmn;1&#8451; and pH was 7-8. The results showed that it was not good for 

CANON process rapid start-up when the two reactors were inoculated with 5% and 10% 

ANAMMOX granules respectively and the initial FA concentration exceeded 44 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. When the two reactors were inoculated with 5% and 10% ANAMMOX 

granular sludge, the reactors were started-up successfully on Day 46 and Day 35, 

respectively. When the flocs SRT was maintained at 30 d, 90 d and un-initiative discharge 

respectively, the average total nitrogen removal rate could reach 0.35 kg&middot;

(m<sup>3</sup>&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>stably. The quantitative PCR results of the three 

different flocs SRT showed that with increasing flocs SRT, the abundance of AOB was 

relatively stable, the abundance of ANAMMOX increased slightly, while the abundance of 

NOB significant increased. Therefore, it is necessary to elutriate flocs from reactor for 

decreasing the quantity of NOB and long-term stable operation of the CANON process.

Abstract:A pilot-scale study with conventional water treatment and ozone-biological 

activated carbon (O<inf>3</inf>-BAC) treatment was conducted to evaluate the impact of 

ammonia and hydrogen peroxide (H<inf>2</inf>O<inf>2</inf>) addition on the bromate and 

disinfection by-products formation potential (DBPFP) control, with bromide containing 

water as raw water. It was found that bromate concentration would exceed 10.00 

&mu;g&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>as ozone doses were higher than 1.0 mg&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>under different water qualities. Ammonia and H<inf>2</inf>O<inf>2</inf>could 

effectively control bromate formation and bromate concentration decreased as ammonia and 

H<inf>2</inf>O<inf>2</inf>doses increased. Bromate concentration could be controlled 

below 10.00 &mu;g&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>as ammonia dose was 0.10-0.30 mg&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>or the m(H<inf>2</inf>O<inf>2</inf>)/m(O<inf>3</inf>) was 0.2-1.0. However, as 

ammonia-H<inf>2</inf>O<inf>2</inf>was combined for the same purpose, bromate increased 

firstly and then decreased. Ammonia addition would not significantly affect the THMFP 

control but H<inf>2</inf>O<inf>2</inf>application would depress the efficiency of THMFP 

removal. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Schwertmannite is usually naturally found in acidic mining wastewater and 

frequently used in the adsorption of heavy metal anions from water and wastewater. 

Schwertmannite was synthesized through a facile chemical method and utilized to remove 

Cr(VI) from contaminated groundwater. The kinetics, thermodynamics and isotherms, as well 

as the effects of environmental factors on the Schwertmannite adsorption processes were 

investigated. The experimental results showed that the synthesized Schwertmannite had a 

strong adsorption capability of Cr(VI) from aqueous solution. At the pre-set initial 

concentrations of Cr(VI), the Schwertmannite adsorption of Cr(VI) achieved equilibrium 

within 24 h, and the Lagergren's second-order model fitted the adsorption process better 

compared to Lagergren's first-order model and intraparticle diffusion model. Langmiur 

equation fitted the adsorption isotherms better than Freundlich equation. The Cr(VI) 

adsorption on Schwertmannite mainly involved ion exchange reaction between Cr(VI) and 

anions such as OH<sup>-</sup>and SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>and surface complexation 

reactions. The &Delta;H<sup>&theta;</sup>and &Delta;G<sup>&theta;</sup>were 6.368 

kJ&middot;mol<sup>-1</sup>and -1.215 kJ&middot;mol<sup>-1</sup>, respectively, therefore 

the adsorption of Cr(VI) was a spontaneous and endothermic process. The removal of Cr(VI) 

from aqueous solution increased with increasing Schwertmannite dosage at pH =4.5. Acidic 

pH in the range of 4.5-6 favored Cr(VI) removal with Schwertmannite compared to that 

under basic conditions. Under the conditions of 5 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>of initial Cr

(VI) concentration, 0.5 g&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>of Schwertmannite dosage, pH=6, maximum 

Cr(VI) removal of 93.1% was achieved and the adsorption capacity of Cr(VI) with 

Schwertmannite reached up to 40.4 mg&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>. Batch tests showed that the 

presence of HCO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>and SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>inhibited the 

adsorption of Cr(VI) while Cl<sup>-</sup>had no significant impact. Cations and natural 

organic matter had a pH-dependent impact on Cr(VI) removal: at pH=8 natural organic 

matter and cations would significantly inhibit the Cr(VI) sorption, while the impact 

could be neglected at weak acidic conditions (pH=6). &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:Studying particle size distribution and dispersion characteristics of cooking 

oil fume can help to analyze the influence of the particles on indoor air quality and the 

health of the residents. Electrical low pressure impactor (ELPI) was employed to measure 

the number and mass concentration of the particles size range of 0.03-10 &mu;m at two 

different locations in the kitchen space with smoke exhaust on and off, respectively. The 

cooking particles were mostly located at below 655 nm. The smoke exhaust with open 

condition could remarkably decrease the kitchen's cooking fume. The number concentration 

of particles decreased from 2.8&times;10<sup>6</sup>cm<sup>-3</sup>to 

2.3&times;10<sup>5</sup>cm<sup>-3</sup>, and PM<inf>2.5</inf>(aerodynamics diameter 

&le;2.5 &mu;m particulate matter) mass concentrations decreased from 85.9 

mg&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>to 6.2 mg&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>. The sucking efficiency of smoke 

exhaust for PM<inf>10</inf>was higher than PM<inf>2.5</inf>. The number concentration of 

particles could be declined by 65%, and the cooking fume of PM<inf>2.5</inf>could be 

declined by 75% during the diffusion process detected at the area of 3 m far away from 

the area where cooking took place. The distribution of PM<inf>2.5</inf>mass concentration 

field of oil fume was simulated by computational fluid dynamics. The temperature field 

distribution of oil fume was monitored by infrared camera, presenting sector diffusion 

with the temperature decreasing from 70&#8451; to room temperature. &copy; 2017, Science

Abstract:The use of sewage sludge compost(SSC)as fertilizer may cause increased leaching 

due to its high content of heavy metals and thus pose a threat to groundwater quality. 

The effect of SSC application on heavy metals leaching in calcareous soils has been 

studied in field trials, which provides basis for determining heavy metals environmental 

capacity and preventing metal pollution in farmland soil scientifically. The results 

indicated that the contents of Cu, Zn elevated obviously with the increase of the age and 

the dosage of SSC utilization in the topsoil(0-15 cm) under 4-year continuous application 

of SSC. Under higher levels of the compost treatment, the heavy metals Cu and Zn were 

found to migrate into the 15-30 cm soil and 60-90 cm soil under the experimental 

condition. Nevertheless, the majority of Cu and Zn from SSC accumulated in topsoil and 

the highest accumulation rates could reach 75.3% for Cu and 85.9% for Zn. The contents of 

Cd, Pb increased significantly in topsoil after 4-year continuous application of SSC, and 

their increases could reach 57.2%-165.2% for Cd and 13%-34% for Pb compared with CK. At 

60-90 cm soil, the contents of Cr, As and Pb were also significantly higher than those in 

CK treatment. Application of SSC not only caused accumulation of some heavy metals in 

topsoil but also leached heavy metals located in the subsurface soil down in this 

experiment. Continuous utilization of SSC increased Zn concentration of wheat grain, and 

the increase could reach 13.3%-47.9%. For the concentrations of Cr and Pb in wheat grain, 

the values exceeded the national food and healthy standards value (GB 2762-2012) in part 

of compost treatments. The cumulative ratio of heavy metals carried out by wheat were all 

below 10% after 4-year experiment, wheat grain carried much more Cu, Zn out than wheat 

straw, but it was opposite for Cr, As, Cd, Pb. The cumulative ratio of heavy metals 

carried by wheat decreased with the increasing level of SSC utilization. The amounts of 

heavy metals migrated to deeper soil should be considered when determining the 

environmental capacity of heavy metals in farmland soil. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:To study the efficiency and mechanism of nitrogen and phosphorus removal for 

decentralized rural sewage in modified zeolite wetland, the modified zeolite was applied 

as substrate into a combined process composed of anaerobic baffled reactor (ABR) and 

baffled flow constructed wetland (BFCW), providing a new way for rural sewage treatment 

in Suzhou City. The study was contrasted with zeolite wetland. The results showed that 

the modified zeolite wetland had high efficiency and stability of nitrogen and phosphorus 

removal, and the nitrogen and phosphorus removal quantities of modified zeolite wetland 

were 1.8% and 1 times higher than those of zeolite wetland during the trial. The modified 

zeolite wetland mainly removed nitrogen and phosphorus by substrate adsorption, and the 

main fractions of modified zeolite were Ca-P and Al-P. The oxygen-secretion and 

absorption of plants stabilized the water quality of the effluent. The substrate 

adsorption was the main nitrification removal pathway in front of the wetland, and 

nitrification and denitrification were the main nitrification removal pathways at the end 

of the wetland. The nitrogen and phosphorus adsorption capacities during the pilot test 

were much higher than those of the static test. The optimization of phosphorus adsorption 

capacity for modified zeolite was achieved under the synergy of multiple pathways. The 

effect of configuration and plant root was the main reason for the difference of nitrogen 

and phosphorus adsorption quantities. Nitrification intensity led to the seasonal 

fluctuation of nitrogen removal effect and stability in modified zeolite wetland, and the 

low nitrification intensity in the front of wetland was related to the strong adsorption 

of NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N by the modified zeolite. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:Two parallel biological aerated filters (BAF)-ozonation, named as number 1 

(feeding with FeSO<inf>4</inf>&middot;7H<inf>2</inf>O) and number 2, were used to treat 

petrochemical secondary effluent. The effect of FeSO<inf>4</inf>&middot;7H<inf>2</inf>O 

on COD and phosphorus removal by BAF-ozonation was studied. Molecular weight 

distribution, three-dimensional fluorescence scan and gas chromatography-mass 

spectrometry (GC-MS) were used to analyze water quality before and after BAF-ozonation. 

The results showed the average COD and TP concentrations were 82.91 mg&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>and 1.37 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. When the dosage of 

FeSO<inf>4</inf>&middot;7H<inf>2</inf>O was 9 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, the average 

removal rates of COD and TP were 52.20% and 71.50%, respectively. The average COD removal 

rate in number 1 combined process was 17.15%, which was higher than that in number 2 

combined process. The TP removal rate in number 1 combined process was increased by 

51.81%. The percentage of dissolved organic matters with relative molecular weight less 

than 1&times;10<sup>3</sup>was 52% in the raw wastewater. However, the percentage 

increased to 75% when treated by number 1 combined process and the removal rate of 

various molecular weight organics was increased. Three-dimensional fluorescence analysis 

showed that the dosage of FeSO<inf>4</inf>&middot;7H<inf>2</inf>O could improve the 

removal of fluorescent substances. GC-MS results showed that the number and concentration 

of organics were reduced after number 1 combined process in comparison with number 2 

combined process. BAF-ozone could be enhanced by FeSO<inf>4</inf>&middot;7H<inf>2</inf>O 

when treating petrochemical secondary effluent. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) in the environment have gradually engendered 

extensive concern recently due to the harm caused to environment and human beings. In 

this study, two sulfonamides resistant bacteria isolated from secondary effluents of a 

municipal wastewater treatment plant were used to compare the efficacy of three different 

disinfection processes (chlorination, ultraviolet and ozone) in reducing sulfonamides 

resistance pollution using serial dilution plate counting method and qPCR. The behavior 

characteristics of sulfonamides resistance genes during the disinfection process were 

elucidated using disinfection+DNase I treatment. The results showed that all three 

disinfection techniques could reduce the concentration of target bacteria, but the 

abundance of sulfonamides resistance genes was still at a high level. Furthermore, 

chlorination disinfection might reduce sulfonamides resistance genes by reducing 

microbial biomass. Ultraviolet disinfection could damage genes directly. However, during 

ozone disinfection, sulfonamides resistance genes would escape to environment, and its 

potential environmental risks could not be ignored. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Size-resolved filter samples were collected in Sanya every other week from June 

2012 to May 2014. The mass concentrations of water-soluble inorganic ions, including 

anions (Cl<sup>-</sup>, NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>, SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>) and 

cations (Na<sup>+</sup>, NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>, K<sup>+</sup>, Mg<sup>2+</sup>, 

Ca<sup>2+</sup>) were measured by ion chromatography. The results showed that the total 

concentrations of measured water-soluble inorganic ions were (8.91&plusmn;7.27) and 

(11.34&plusmn;9.37) &mu;g&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>in PM<inf>2.1</inf>and PM<inf>2.1-9</inf>, 

respectively. In PM<inf>2.1</inf>, SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>and NH<inf>4</inf><sup>

+</sup>comprised 72.2% of all water-soluble inorganic ions, while in PM<inf>2.1~9</inf>, 

Cl<sup>-</sup>, Ca<sup>2+</sup>and Na<sup>+</sup>comprised 67.6% of all water-soluble 

inorganic ions. In PM<inf>2.1</inf>, the total concentrations of water-soluble inorganic 

ions had highest concentrations in winter and lowest concentrations in summer. In 

PM<inf>2.1~9</inf>, the total concentrations of water-soluble inorganic ions presented 

the highest concentrations in summer. SO<inf>4</inf><sup>2-</sup>and NH<inf>4</inf><sup>

+</sup>showed bimodal size distributions and the peaks in the fine mode shifted from 

0.43-0.65 &mu;m in spring, summer and autumn to 0.65-1.1 &mu;m in winter. 

NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>, Na<sup>+</sup>, Cl<sup>-</sup>, Ca<sup>2+</sup>and 

Mg<sup>2+</sup>were unimodal with the peaks in the coarse mode of 4.7-9.0 &mu;m. K<sup>

+</sup>showed bimodal size distribution with the fine mode at 0.43-0.65 &mu;m and the 

coarse mode at 4.7-5.8 &mu;m. PCA analysis showed that water-soluble inorganic ions were 

mainly affected by the secondary formation, sea salt and soil particles or falling dust.

Abstract:River sediments is a valuable environmental medium for characterizing 

contamination of heavy metals in the western areas of Taihu Basin and the associated 

risks to human health. We collected samples of typical inflow river sediments from 

nineteen sites during different water periods. The results showed that the concentrations 

of heavy metals in the river sediments followed the order of 

Zn&gt;Cr&gt;Cu&gt;Pb&gt;Ni&gt;As&gt;Cd&gt;Hg. Compared to the background concentrations, 

the mean concentrations of Zn, Cd, Cu, Ni and Pb seriously exceeded the standard values. 

Except for As, the highest concentrations of heavy metals (Zn, Cr, Cu, Pb, Ni, Cd, Hg) 

were found in the samples from normal water period. The metal (Cd) presented moderate 

pollution degree and ecological risks,and the RI value of Cd accounted for about 47% of 

the total RI value. The mPEC-Q values of the sediments were in the range of 0.12-0.76, 

and the mean value was 0.3, indicating that the sediments in all of the sampling sites 

had a 15%-29% probability of toxicity. In terms of the highest value of the heavy metals, 

higher concentrations, I<inf>geo</inf>, mPEC-Q and PCA values were found at the S2 

sampling sites. The results showed that effects of synergism of heavy metals pollutants 

on the point were found in the paper, which will provide scientific basis for control of 

heavy metal pollution in the Taihu Basin. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:To elucidate succession pattern of phytoplankton in the Daning River and its 

driving factors, multivariate statistical analysis was conducted. By using the monitoring 

data in different seasons of Daning river during April 2012 to January 2013, this paper 

analyzed the succession pattern of phytoplankton in the Daning River and its driving 

factors in typical tributaries of river-style reservoirs. According to the 

characteristics of water level, the operational period of the TGR was classified into 

following four stages: stage I (pre-November-April), stage II (May-July), stage III 

(July-September) and stage IV (September-November). (1)The results indicated that the 

values of Chlorophyll-a concentrations and algal density showed similar seasonal 

variations, with the highest values occurring in stage III, followed by stages IV, II and 

I. Succession of C-R-S growth strategies was the same generally: CR-R type dominated in 

stage I, CS, CR/CS and R-CR dominated in stage II, III and IV, respectively. (2)The mean 

values of Margalef index and Pielou index in stage IV and III were significantly greater 

than those in stage II and I; the value of Shannon-waver index showed that the highest 

value in stage III, followed in a descending order by stage I, II and IV; the 

successional rate had the highest value in stage IV, followed in descending order by 

stage III, I and II. (3) The results of Correlation analysis suggested that no 

significant relationships were observed between the environmental parameters and 

phytoplankton abundance in stage I. The results indicated that relative water column 

stability(RWCS), index of feasible energy for phytoplankton (E<inf>t</inf>) and index of 

feasible energy (Ef<sup>*</sup>) were key regulatory factors for phytoplankton community 

in stage I. The results indicated that E<inf>t</inf>, Ef<sup>*</sup>and total phosphorus 

(TP) were key regulatory factors for phytoplankton abundance in stage II. The results of 

the redundancy analysis (RDA) suggested that RWCS, TP and the ratio of euphotic depth 

[D<inf>eu</inf>(&lambda;<inf>PAR</inf>)] to mixing depth (D<inf>mix</inf>)

[D<inf>eu</inf>(&lambda;<inf>PAR</inf>)/D<inf>mix</inf>] were key regulatory factors for 

phytoplankton community composition in stage II. The results indicated that 

Ef<sup>*</sup>and TP were key regulatory factors for phytoplankton abundance in stage 

III. The results of the RDA suggested that [D<inf>eu</inf>

(&lambda;<inf>PAR</inf>)/D<inf>mix</inf>], E<inf>t</inf>, Ef<sup>*</sup>and TP were key 

regulatory factors for phytoplankton community composition in stage III. The results 

indicated that TP was key regulatory factor for phytoplankton abundance in stage IV. The 

results of the RDA suggested that [D<inf>eu</inf>

(&lambda;<inf>PAR</inf>)/D<inf>mix</inf>] was key regulatory factor for phytoplankton 

community composition in stage IV. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:A laboratory study was conducted to investigate the impacts of bioremediation on 

microbial communities and various nitrogen shifts in petroleum contaminated soil by using 

GC-MS and Illumia MiSeq technique. Results showed the concentrations of alkane reduced 

from 25 987.8 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>to 12 788.6 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, and the 

concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) decreased from 5 322.9 

mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>to 2 917.2 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>. Illumia MiSeq results 

showed that soil microbial communities shifted significantly after remediation, and the 

relative abundance of some phylum of hydrocarbon degraders (Firmicutes, Bacterodetes), 

and some genus of degraders (Dietzia, Acinetobacter) increased. Besides, the contents of 

total nitrogen and ammonia nitrogen increased firstly and then decreased during 

remediation. However, the contents of nitrate nitrogen decreased at the early stage, and 

then kept stable in the later stage of remediation. It can be concluded that 

bioremediation effectively promoted petroleum hydrocarbon degradation, and the different 

fractional hydrocarbon degradation was related to the relative abundance of hydrocarbon 

degraders and available nitrogen contents. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:The soil microbial community and soil enzyme activity are important parts of 

soil ecosystem, and they are sensitive to the ecological environment. In this study, 

citrus plantation in Mt. Jinyun was chosen as the research object. The phospholipid fatty 

acid (PLFAs) combined with principal component analysis method was used to study the 

effect of season changes on soil microbial quantity, community structure characteristics 

and soil enzyme activity at 0-20 cm soil layer under citrus forest. The results obtained 

from this study were as follows: &#9312; The season changes had a significant impact on 

soil microbes (P&lt;0.05). Moreover, 16:0, i17:0, 16:1 2OH, 18:0, cy19:0&omega;8c, 

i17:1&omega;9c or 16:0 10-methyl were found to be common in all four seasons, and the 

proportion of each phospholipid fatty acid was 49.57%, 41.63%, 35.41% and 38.05%, 

respectively. In various microbial species, the PLFAs content of bacteria was the 

highest, followed by fungi, and that of actinomycetes was the lowest. Our results 

revealed that all kinds of micro-organisms showed obvious seasonal variation 

characteristics. The total PLFAs quantity of citrus forest ranged from 6.868 to 24.085 

nmol&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, which had a content order of 

spring&gt;autumn&gt;winter&gt;summer. The PLFAs content of bacteria, G<sup>-</sup>, 

G<sup>+</sup>and actinomycetes also showed the same variation trend. However, the PLFAs 

content of fungi showed a different variation trend, i.e., autumn was the highest, 

followed by winter and summer, and spring was the lowest. The results suggested that 

season change also had a significant impact on microbial community functional diversity 

index. The variation trend of richness index (R) followed the order of 

spring&gt;winter&gt;autumn&gt;summer. Moreover, the variation trend of diversity index 

(H') was winter&gt;autumn&gt;spring&gt;summer. Furthermore, the variation trend of 

evenness index (J) was summer&gt;autumn&gt;winter&gt;spring. The dominance index (D) 

increased with the change of season. &#9313; Urease showed a change with the seasons 

following summer&gt;spring&gt;autumn&gt;winter; Soil invertase, soil catalase and acid 

phosphatase activity changed obviously in autumn, followed by spring, summer, and winter. 

&#9314; The principal component analysis demonstrated that the PLFAs content of bacteria, 

G<sup>-</sup>, G<sup>+</sup>, actinomycetes and total PLFAs made the greatest 

contribution to soil fertility followed by that of invertase, catalase, acid phosphatase 

and fungi. Moreover, our studies showed that the PLFAs content of urease made a minimum 

contribution to the soil fertility. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Aiming to expand the utilization of porous silicate minerals in the remediation 

of heavy metal contaminated soil, the mesoporous material SBA-15 was successfully 

synthesized by using sodium silicate as silica source in this study. And the obtained 

SBA-15 samples were characterized by TEM, X-ray diffraction, N<inf>2</inf>adsorption-

desorption and FTIR. Furthermore, characterization of Cd(II) adsorption and sealing 

performance onto SBA-15 were evaluated through batch experiment, and the remediation 

potential of Cd(II) contaminated soil was investigated by brassica planting in a pot 

experiment. The results showed that SBA-15 had the mesoporous structure with surface area 

of 507.3 m<sup>2</sup>&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>and pore size of 7.38 nm. The maximum Cd(II) 

adsorption capacity was 76.43 mg&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>at pH above 7.0 with the adsorption 

isotherm fitting the Langmuir model in the solution of 100 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>Cd

(II). The increase in ionic strength reduced the Cd(II) adsorption capacity. The Cd(II) 

loaded SBA-15 could be regenerated with 0.1 mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>HNO<inf>3</inf>, 

while Cd(II) could be strongly sealed in the pore structure after introduction of sodium 

silicate into the system. The pot experiment proved that the addition of SBA-15 (4.5 

g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>) into Cd-contaminated soil could reduce Cd(II) availability, 

enhance the transformation of soluble and exchangeable Cd(II) fractions into carbonate 

and Fe-Mn oxides bounded forms, inhibit the Cd(II) accumulation in the plant tissue and 

improve the brassica growth. Based on these results, it can be concluded that combination 

of the SBA-15 particle with sodium silicate has great potential to remediate Cd(II) 

contaminated soil through adsorption and sealing properties. &copy; 2017, Science Press.

Abstract:The phosphate released from organic phosphorus photo-decomposition has a 

significantly influence on the phosphorus levels in the water column in lakes. In order 

to reveal the effect of organic phosphorus photo-decomposition on phosphate level in lake 

water, the phosphate released from organic phosphorus photo-decomposition driven by Fe

(III)-oxalate complex under UV-Vis and sunlight irradiation was investigated in natural 

lake water using glyphosate as the model organic phosphorus. The effects of pH and 

initial concentration of Fe(III), oxalate and glyphosate on the phosphate released from 

glyphosate photolysis were studied. The results showed that phosphate could be released 

from glyphosate degradation by Fe(III)-oxalate complex under UV-Vis and sunlight 

irradiation. The concentration of phosphate reached 0.25 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>and 0.18

respectively. The amount of phosphate released increased with the increase of the initial

Abstract:Illicit drugs have been recognized as a group of emerging pollutants. Based on 

previous research, procedures to pre-treat wastewater including SPE column, pH of water 

samples, and processes of washing, acidifying and re-dissolving were compared. It was 

found that the best recovery was achieved when wastewater was adjusted to pH=2 and Oasis 

MCX column was used. It was not necessary to flush the loaded column or to acidify the 

eluate prior to evaporation using nitrogen steam. After evaporation, it is recommended to 

redissolve the evaporated samples using 200 &mu;L acetonitrile and 100 &mu;L 

acetonitrile+100 &mu;L 5 mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>ammonium acetate in Milli-Q water for 

HILIC-UPLC-MS/MS and C18-UPLC-MS/MS, respectively. After comparing retention times, limit 

of detection, limit of quantification, recoveries, and matrix effects of HILIC and C18 

methods, C18-UPLC-MS/MS was chosen. Influent and effluent samples from 12 wastewater 

treatment plants in Beijing were analyzed using the optimized method for validation. The 

validated methods set a firm foundation to apply the sewage-based epidemiology to monitor 

illicit drug abuse in China. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Using the hanging nylon as a biological carrier, a novel biofilm reactor was 

adopted to treat synthetic wastewater, and the feasibility of cultivating and enriching a 

high concentration of PAOs on this conventional biofilm within a short time was 

investigated, which was proved from the aspects of reactor's operational efficiency, the 

rate of phosphorus removal and the condition of PAOs enrichment. After 10d of operation, 

the rate of orthophosphate removal was higher than 95% in aerobic phase and the 

concentration of effluent COD was 50 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>or less in the reactor,which 

was operated steadily for 50 d at this treatment level; after 48 d of operation, the 

reactor's phosphorus uptake rate and release rate were increased from 3.4 mg&middot;

(L&middot;h)<sup>-1</sup>and 3.4 mg&middot;(L&middot;h)<sup>-1</sup>to 8 mg&middot;

(L&middot;h)<sup>-1</sup>and 6 mg&middot;(L&middot;h)<sup>-1</sup>,respectively, and the 

aerobic and anaerobic cycles were shortened from equally 6 h to 2 h and 3 h, 

respectively. The fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) test found that the PAOs' 

abundance was increased from the original 48.96% to 70% on the 50th day, meanwhile the 

PAOs showed reunite chunk state in hybrid figure, the thickness of biofilm measured by 

direct microscopic process was about 28.9 &mu;m, which all proved that the PAOs in 

biofilm were at the end of the growth kinetics and the biofilm was mature. By hardening 

culture for 50d, a high concentration of 70% in full organisms of PAOs could be enriched 

in the conventional nylon filler, enabling the reactor to show a high efficiency in 

removal of phosphorus and organic matter from sewage. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:As an important part of inland waters, small pond is a neglected source of 

greenhouse gas. The main objective of the study was to quantify greenhouse gas fluxes 

(CO<inf>2</inf>and CH<inf>4</inf>) from small pond in the Yangtze Delta using flux-

gradient method. The results showed that: &#9312; zero-gradient test indicated that the 

flux measurement precision for water vapor, CO<inf>2</inf>, and CH<inf>4</inf>was 7.525 

W&middot;m<sup>-2</sup>, 0.022 mg&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;s)<sup>-1</sup>, and 0.054 

&mu;g&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;s)<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. During the test period, 

84%, 80%, and 94% of half-hourly flux data for H<inf>2</inf>O, CO<inf>2</inf>, and 

CH<inf>4</inf>were higher than the zero-gradient measurement precision. &#9313;Based on 

the measurement, the small pond was the source of CO<inf>2</inf>and CH<inf>4</inf>for the 

atmosphere in summer, the mean emission flux of CO<inf>2</inf>and CH<inf>4</inf>was 0.038 

mg&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;s)<sup>-1</sup>and 0.889 &mu;g&middot;

(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;s)<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. The CH<inf>4</inf>emission fluxes 

from the small pond were more higher than the median value of emission for global lakes. 

The results indicated that greenhouse gas emission from small pond was an important part 

for estimating inland water greenhouse gas emissions, especially for 

CH<inf>4</inf>emission. These results can provide scientific reference for making 

emission inventory of regional greenhouse gas. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:A compound contaminated soil sampled from Lingxiang City, Hunan Province, was 

used to investigate the effects of biochar (BC) and montmorillonite (MM) addition on 

heavy metals fractions. The addition amounts of BC and MM were 1%, 2%, 5%, respectively, 

and the mixture treatment was 1% BC+1% MM. BCR(European Community Bureau of Reference) 

sequential extraction method was used to assess the fractions of heavy metals in soil 

after incubation. The results indicated that adding BC alone significantly reduced the 

available contents of Pb, Cu and Cd. Among montmorillonite treatments, MM5% treatment 

decreased the weak acid extractable content of Cu, Pb, Zn, Cd by 27.6%, 19.2%, 25.6%, 

19.2%, respectively. BC+MM treatment worked well, decreased the weak acid extractable 

content of Cu,Pb, Zn, Cd by 15.8%, 15.9%, 13.1%, 12.0%, and increased the residual 

content by 39.0%, 110.1%, 9.6%, 62.5%, significantly reducing the mobility of the four 

elements. For the stabilization effect, MM treatment worked better than BC treatment, and 

a combination of two amendments worked the best. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Harvesting of microalgae is the major challenge in cost-efficient large-scale 

microalgal biomass production due to their low concentration and small cell size in the 

culture medium. The present paper aimed to study the efficiency of the filamentous fungus 

Mucor circinelloides spores suspensions to harvest the green unicellular microalga 

Chlorella pyrenoidosa grown in synthetic medium. Results showed that the optimal co-

culture conditions were pH=6.0, 1.25 g&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>glucose and 1&#8758;250 fungi 

to microalgae ratio with harvest efficiency of 91.08%. In addition, the mentioned optimal 

conditions could be applied for actual sewage with harvest efficiency of 92.33%. 

Polysaccharide concentrations measured before and after 48 h of cultivation showed that 

the polysaccharide of C. pyrenoidosa cultured alone was increased by 0.047 

g&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, while co-cultured mixture showed increase in polysaccharides by 

0.019 g&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. The recorded decrease in polysaccharides concentration in 

the co-culture might be attributed to using of excreted polysaccharides by M. 

circinelloides to grow, confirming the symbiotic association of both organisms. 

Furthermore, with decreasing the pH, C. pyrenoidosa Zeta potential was stable, while it 

was increased from -37.7 mV to -9.87 mV in M. circinelloides, which indicated that charge 

neutralization was the mechanism of flocculation between algae and fungi. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:Application of biochar (BC) is an important way to increase soil organic carbon 

sequestration. At the same time, the effect of BC on fractions and properties of soil 

humic substances is concerned. A laboratory experiment was conducted to study the 

influences of BC pyrolyzed at different temperatures on the composition and properties of 

humic substances. The modified method for the extraction and fractionation of humic 

substances was adopted in this work. The carbon (C) contents of Humin (Hu), Humic acids 

(HA), Fulvic acids (FA) were analyzed by the thermal oxidation of 

K<inf>2</inf>Cr<inf>2</inf>O<inf>7</inf>and TOC analyzer, and the optical properties of 

HA and FA were measured by using spectrophotometer. The results showed that the 

increasing temperature (from 300 to 600&#8451;) decreased like-humic substances (LHS) 

from 10.93 g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>to 0.26 g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, while the structure 

of theLHS tended to be complicated. Compared with control treatment (CK), the addition of 

BC produced under 400&#8451; increased the contents of HA and FA (after 240 d incubation 

a lower FA content was found in treatments) and increased as BC application rate 

increased, after 360 d of incubation, BC300 and BC400 significantly increased by 69.93% 

and 48.75% for HA (P&lt;0.05), while decreased by 1.35% and 5.19% for FA. Higher contents 

of HA and FA were found in soil samples amended with BC prepared at above 400&#8451; only 

during the initial period of 3-10 d of incubation and increased as BC application rate 

increased, at the end of the incubation, the contents of HA and FA significantly 

decreased by 34.38%, 44.48% in BC500 treatments and 42.84%, 49.27% in the BC600 

treatments (P&lt;0.05). During the incubation, the addition of BC significantly increased 

the contents of Hu (P&lt;0.05), and the treatments amended with BC500 were the highest. 

The addition of BC decreased the relative contents of HA and FA, while increased the 

relative content of Hu, indicating that the proportion of relatively stable organic 

carbon in the soil was increased. The ratio of HA/FA (H/F) varied between 0.88 and 2.52 

and increased with decreasing pyrolysis temperature and increasing BC application. A 

significantly lower color tonal coefficient (&Delta;lgK) and 

E<inf>4</inf>/E<inf>6</inf>values in treatments amended with BC produced at temperatures 

above 400&#8451;, indicating that higher temperatures derived BC complicated the 

structure of soil humic substance, while an opposite rend was observed in treatments 

amended with BC produced at temperatures under 400&#8451;. Considering the improvement of 

the stability of organic carbon, when the BC products were applied to the Loutu soil, 

500&#8451; was the optimal temperature for preparing apple-derived BC not only because it 

could significantly increase the content of inert soil organic carbon, but also improve 

the quality of the soil as a result of enhancing the degree of soil humification. &copy;

of 4 h and the influent perchlorate concentration was 194 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>; The 

yield of sulfate was increased by increasing the influent perchlorate concentration and 

HRT; The influent pH and alkalinity was approximately 8.0 and 500 mg&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>CaCO<inf>3</inf>, and the effluent pH and alkalinity was approximately 6.7 and 100 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>CaCO<inf>3</inf>, respectively; The oxidation reduction potential 

(ORP) ranged from -380 mV to -330 mV at the bottom of the reactor, however, ORP ranged 

from -300 mV to -250 mV at the top of the reactor; The molecular biological analysis 

showed that the microbial consortium structure was different along the flow path in the 

reactor, Sulfurovum which is known to oxidize sulfur was decreased from 57.78% to 32.19% 

and Hydrogenophilaceae which is known to oxidize hydrogen sulfide was increased from

Abstract:In order to study the effect of reclaimed water on bacterial community 

composition and function in urban river sediment, the changes of bacteria community 

diversity, composition and function in Mayu wetland upon the supply of reclaimed water 

were investigated by a range of sophisticated procedures, including Terminal Restriction 

Fragment Length Polymorphism(T-RFLP), 16S rRNA clone library technology, and Real-time 

Quantitative PCR Detecting System(qPCR).The results showed that carbon, nitrogen and 

phosphorus were major factors driving the variation of bacterial diversity and community 

structure in river sediment, and the bacteria were gradually recovered after purification 

in downstream under the effect of artificial wetland. In addition, the bacterial 

community in reclaimed water outfall was mainly constituted by &beta;-Proteobacteria, 

&delta;-Proteobacteria, Bacteroidales and Cyanobacteriain, and &Epsilon;-Proteobacteria, 

Chloroflexi and Spirochaetes were unique groups. Besides, the major biological 

geochemical cycle was nitrogen, carbon and phosphorus cycle in river sediment, which was 

closely related to functional genes. There were about 45.9% of the clones related to 

nitrogen cycle in reclaimed water outfall, such as Comamonas sp., higher than those of 

upstream and downstream (27.7% and 23.4%), 17.9% of the clones were closely related to 

the carbon cycle, such as Lysobacter sp., higher than those of upstream and downstream 

(14.4% and 12.9%). Furthermore, the trace of pathogenic bacteria and antibiotics in 

reclaimed water also changed the transformation pattern participating in carbon and 

nitrogen cycle, for example, Rhodocyclus sp. conducted nitrogen fixation by 

photosynthesis in reclaimed water outfall, whereas Burkholderia sp. fixes nitrogen by 

ways of plants symbiotic nitrogen fixation in upstream and downstream. This research 

provides theoretical reference for studies on remediation of reclaimed water supplying 

river by artificial wetland. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Colloids are the major carriers of various contaminants during the downward 

transport into groundwater. To explore the long-term dynamics of colloid in the 

groundwater and its influencing factors, a one-year monitoring of colloid concentration 

and water physicochemical parameters was carried out in the shallow wells in a purple 

soil dominated watershed in the hilly region of central Sichuan. The results indicated 

that colloid concentrations within a year had a strong seasonal variation with the 

coefficient of variation being larger than 0.5. The maximum of colloid mass concentration 

could reach as high as 14.68 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>(the corresponding number 

concentration being 1.34&times;10<sup>9</sup>L<sup>-1</sup>), which occurred in the non-

rainy season and was caused by the physical perturbations from water taken. Physical 

perturbations of rainfall led to the distinct peaks of colloid concentrations in the well 

water at the early stages of rainy season while it did not occur at the end of the rainy 

season even upon heavy storm. Water chemistries (EC, Ca<sup>2+</sup>, Mg<sup>2+</sup>, 

DOC) showed the dominant role in determining colloid concentrations and status in the 

well. The facilitated transport of contaminants (i.e. pesticides and heavy metals) due to 

the increased colloids in the shallow well water at the early stages of rainy season 

would potentially pose a great threat to the drinking water safety in the study area. 

Therefore, it is strongly suggested to increase the monitoring frequencies in terms of 

colloid concentrations and well water physicochemical parameters following the large 

rainfall events during this period. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:The modification of hollow fiber ultrafiltration membranes with carbon nanotube 

(CNTs) on fouling control was investigated. Considering the antifouling ability of the 

CNT-modified membranes and the stability of CNTs layer, several factors were analyzed and 

evaluated, including the concentration of ethanol-dispersion, the diameter of CNTs, and 

the loading mass of CNTs. Besides, DOC, UV<inf>254</inf>, and fluorescence 

characteristics of the permeate from the CNT-modified membrane were analyzed. The results 

revealed that the optimal modification method included a 50%(volume fraction) ethanol-

dispersion,a 30-50 nm diameter-CNTs, and 3 g&middot;m<sup>-2</sup>CNTs' loading. Compared 

with the virgin membrane, the removal rates of DOC and UV<inf>254</inf>by the CNT-

modified membrane were increased by 37% and 56%, respectively. Meanwhile, it was proved 

that the humic-like and protein-like materials were more easily removed by the CNT-

modified membrane. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Global warming can intensify the El Ni&ntilde;o phenomenon that recurs every 2-7 

years, which will lead to a great interannual variability of climate and may induce the 

deterioration of the water quality of reservoirs. To study the influence of the extreme 

El Ni&ntilde;o events on the water quality of stratified reservoirs during summer, field 

surveys were conducted in Zhoucun Reservoir and its inflow rivers from May to August in a 

normal year (2012) and a strong El Ni&ntilde;o year (2015). Temporal variations of 

physical and chemical index were investigated during monitoring. The results showed that 

the Zhoucun Reservoir was stratified during the study period. The precipitation in the 

summer of the normal year was significantly higher than that in the El Ni&ntilde;o year 

at the same period. In the summer of the normal year, the water level increased from 

124.26 m to 127.14 m and the hypolimnion thickness increased by 3.1 m. However, in 2015, 

the rapid decrease of the water level from May to August (from 121.65 m to 119.46 m) led 

to the decrease of the hypolimnion thickness (by 3.2 m). The inflow rivers belonged to 

surface current and its nutrients concentrations were obviously higher than those in the 

epilimnion. The inflow nutrients loads increased significantly in the summer of the 

normal year, as a result, total nitrogen increased from 1.00 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to 

2.06 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, nitrate increased from 0.19 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to 

1.28 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, and total phosphorus increased from 0.023 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to 0.088 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>in the lacustrine zone of the 

reservoir. In contrast, the nutrients concentrations changed little in the summer of the 

El Ni&ntilde;o year due to the decrease in runoff. Nonetheless, the reducing pollutants 

concentrations of the hypolimnion in the El Ni&ntilde;o year were significantly higher 

than those in the normal year, which may be due to the temporal variations of hypolimnion 

thicknesses. The maximum concentrations of iron, manganese, ammonium and sulfide in the 

summer of the El Ni&ntilde;o year were 0.38, 1.36, 2.36 and 1.67 mg&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>, respectively. All these index exceeded the standards for surface water Class 

III. We conclude that the extreme El Ni&ntilde;o event has an apparent influence on the 

nutrients concentrations in the epilimnion and the pollutants concentrations in the 

hypolimnion in Zhoucun Reservoir. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:To reveal the spatiotemporal characteristics of nutrients in the deposition 

process of suspended solids in lakeside zone, in situ deposition tests were performed in 

the western lakeside of Taihu Lake, and the contents of TP, TN, NH<inf>4</inf><sup>

+</sup>-N and NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N were measured and analyzed. The results showed 

that the deposition fluxes in the western lakeside of Taihu Lake ranked as follows: 

artificial reed areas&gt;non-vegetation nearshore areas&gt;natural reed areas&gt;non-

vegetation offshore areas, with their average values of (1 383.40&plusmn;925.60), (1 

208.67&plusmn;743.50), (278.72&plusmn;142.53), (245.58&plusmn;154.25) g&middot;

(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. From the 6th day, the deposition 

volume steadily increased, with the deposition rate larger than the decomposition rate. 

Through the 15-day continuous in situ observation, the content of TP in nearshore zone 

was 2-3 folds larger than that of offshore zone, and the content of NH<inf>4</inf><sup>

+</sup>-N was significantly different from that of NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N in the 

settlement bottle (P&lt;0.01). The deposition volume was significantly and positively 

correlated to both TN and NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N contents in the water column 

(P&lt;0.01, n=42), suggesting that the TN and NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N contents in 

the overlying water increased with the deposition fluxes. The correlation coefficient 

between TN and NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N was 0.84, implicating that the increase of 

deposition flux may accelerate the mutual transformation between different forms of 

nitrogen. These findings should be taken into account in the current control of black 

blooms and nutrient management in Taihu Lake. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:In order to compare the differences in carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas 

mitigation between straw and straw-derived biochar amendment, a field experiment was 

conducted with simultaneous measurement of carbon dioxide (CO<inf>2</inf>), methane 

(CH<inf>4</inf>) and nitrous oxide (N<inf>2</inf>O) emissions, crop yield, soil organic 

carbon (SOC) content and net global warming potential (NGWP) in a wheat-maize rotation 

cropping system from the loess plateau of China. Five treatments were included: control 

(no straw incorporation, no straw-derived biochar amendment and no fertilization, CK), 

fertilization (no straw incorporation and no straw-derived biochar amendment, F), straw 

with fertilization (wheat straw incorporated at 8 t&middot;hm<sup>-2</sup>, FS), low 

straw-derived biochar (8 t&middot;hm<sup>-2</sup>) with fertilization (FBlow) and high 

straw-derived biochar (16 t&middot;hm<sup>-2</sup>) with fertilization (FBhigh). Wheat 

yield increased by 30.9%, 66.3% and 36.6% under FS, FBlow and FBhigh treatment, as 

compared to the F treatment, respectively. However, maize yield decreased by 14.1%, 18.0% 

and 24.6% under FS, CK and FBhigh treatment as compared to the F treatment, respectively. 

There was no significant difference between FBlow and F treatment. Annual 

CO<inf>2</inf>emission increased by 60.2% under FS treatment, but decreased by 14.4% 

under FBhigh treatment as compared to the F treatment, respectively. Annual 

N<inf>2</inf>O emission decreased by 27.6% and 38.7% under FBlow and FBhigh treatment as 

compared to the F treatment, respectively. However, no significant difference was 

observed under straw application. Overall, the NGWP decreased by 24.13 and 58.44 

t&middot;hm<sup>-2</sup>under FBlow and FBhigh treatment as compared to the F treatment, 

respectively. And the NGHGI decreased by 1.78 and 5.06 t&middot;t<sup>-1</sup>under FBlow 

and FBhigh treatment as compared to the F treatment, respectively. In summary, we 

conclude that the fertilization with 16 t&middot;hm<sup>-2</sup>biochar amendment can be 

used as an effective management to improve the crop yield and reduce the net global 

warming potential under the wheat-maize rotation system. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:A suitable fractionation method of phosphorus (P) is a key to effective 

assessment of soil P componential features. Here a new biologically-based P (BBP) method 

was used to evaluate the P fractions in the upland and paddy soils across large-scale 

area in China. The soil P was divided into four components: (1) soluble or rhizosphere-

intercepted (CaCl<inf>2</inf>-P), (2)organic acid activated and inorganic weakly bound 

(Citrate-P), (3) enzyme mineralization of organic P (Enzyme-P), (4)potential activation 

of inorganic P (HCl-P). Then, the relationships between biologically-based P fractions 

and standard Olsen-P were investigated, and driving factors of P fractions were 

identified. The results showed that P content was in order of HCl-P&gt;Citrate-

P&gt;Enzyme-P&gt;CaCl<inf>2</inf>-P. All P components of upland soil displayed higher 

levels than those of paddy soil. Moreover, the P components were highly positively 

correlated with the Olsen-P, suggesting that each P component contributed to soil P 

availability. However, it was found that Olsen-P was most highly correlated with 

CaCl<inf>2</inf>-P and Enzyme-P (R<sup>2</sup>=0.359; R<sup>2</sup>=0.386) in upland 

soil, while Olsen-P was most highly with Citrate-P (R<sup>2</sup>=0.788) in paddy soil. 

This result indicated that available P of upland soil was mainly from organic P 

mineralization and soluble P, and available P in paddy soil was mainly from inorganic P 

activation. Redundancy analysis (RDA) showed that the P components were mainly affected 

by soil pH and silt content, which suggested that it could enhance the P availability via 

regulating soil pH in the agricultural activities. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Site remediation has become an imperative part of environmental protection in 

China due to recent economic development, urban spreading, new industries replacing old 

ones, relocation of old industrial sites, and increased environmental conscience. This 

paper mainly introduced the concept, method, calculation, risk assessment and management 

for polluted sites remediation based on experience from California, USA. Further, the 

paper presented the concept of vapor intrusion and how to use vapor intrusion methodology 

to determine site remediation standard. Mathematical modeling approaches were also 

discussed in terms of how to determine the residual pollutant concentrations in soil and 

how to calculate indoor vapor concentrations. Based on risk assessment, California 

Environmental Protection Agency, Water Resources Control Board issued a 'Low Threat 

Underground Storage Tank Case Closure Policy'for impacted underground storage tank sites. 

The numerical criteria in the Policy were based on calculations of human health risk 

assessment. Finally, a real case study in California, USA, was presented to demonstrate 

how the risk assessment calculations were applied in polluted site remediation, which 

helps to answer the question of 'how clean is clean'. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:Returning straw to the field provides an important source of fertilizer that can 

increase soil fertility. However, the rate of straw carbon utilization is low and large 

amounts of greenhouse gases are emitted due to the high carbon to nitrogen ratio of the 

straw mass. In this regard, the application of inorganic nitrogen and phosphate 

fertilizers can control the ratio of elements in the soil, increase the activity of 

microorganisms and their utilization of elements, and promote the improvement of soil 

fertility. In this study, straw application conditions were simulated, and inorganic 

nitrogen fertilizer labeled with<sup>15</sup>N was added to examine the effects of 

different nutrient fertilizer additions on the transformation and distribution of 

exogenous nitrogen in the soil, and also the characteristics of the microbial response. 

The results showed that application of straw increased the contents of ammonia nitrogen 

and total nitrogen in the soil and soil solution. When both straw and inorganic nitrogen 

fertilizer were applied, the<sup>15</sup>N-TN in the soil remained at 28 to 33 &mu;g 

during the 100-day culture phase. In contrast,<sup>15</sup>N-NH<inf>4</inf><sup>

+</sup>increased gradually during the initial 30 days of the culture phase, but 

subsequently decreased gradually. Application of phosphate increased the contents 

of<sup>15</sup>N-TN and<sup>15</sup>N-NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>in the soil, but 

decreased the content of<sup>15</sup>N in the soil solution by 28%. The distribution of 

inorganic nitrogen in the soil showed that the proportion of<sup>15</sup>N in the soil 

remained at 52%-61%. Addition of phosphate fertilizer increased the distribution ratio 

of<sup>15</sup>N in the soil by up to 16.5%, whereas the proportion of<sup>15</sup>N in 

the soil solution decreased from 36% on the fifth day to 30% on the 100<sup>th</sup>day, 

thereby the loss amount of<sup>15</sup>N reduced by 1.2-fold. Addition of straw promoted 

microbial activity and significantly increased the microbial biomass nitrogen (MBN) 

content of the soil. Addition of inorganic fertilizer further promoted the microbial 

activity of the soil. After the 100-day culture experiment, the addition of straw, 

inorganic nitrogen, and phosphate fertilizer increased MBN to between 2.0-fold and 2.2-

fold that of the control treatments. Addition of phosphate fertilizer increased the 

utilization of<sup>15</sup>N by microorganisms, so that the amount of<sup>15</sup>N-MBN 

was 1.5-fold higher than that of treatments where only straw and nitrogen fertilizer were 

added. Examination of soil enzyme activity showed that nitrogen fertilizer reduced soil 

enzyme activity and substrate affinity. When both nitrogen and phosphate fertilizers were 

added, the enzyme activity was 48.1% higher than that when only straw was added. The 

findings of this study thus provide a theoretical basis for furthering our understanding 

on the nitrogen cycle of the paddy soil ecosystem, the improvement of soil fertility, and 

the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Total concentrations of 15 metal elements in the surface sediments of Yundang 

Lagoon in Xiamen were determined using ICP-MS. The fractions were extracted by a modified 

BCR method. The results indicated that in different areas of Yundang Lagoon, the order of 

the concentrations of Cd, Cu, Sr, Pb, Zn and U was: outer lagoon&gt;ditch&gt;inner 

lagoon, the order for Cr, Co, Ni, V, Fe, Li, Rb and Mn was: inner lake&gt;outer 

lake&gt;ditch. Cu, Zn and Pb were mainly in the reducible phase; Cd was mainly in the 

acid soluble-extractable and reducible phases; Co, Ni, U, Fe and Mn were mainly in the 

reducible and residual phases; Li, V, Cr, Rb and Ba were dominated by residual phase. The 

potential ecological risk of metal elements suggested that V, Cr, Co, Ni, Zn, Cu, Cd and 

Pb were at a low potential ecological risk level. The results of ratio of secondary phase 

to primary phase (RSP) assessment indicated that Cu, Cd and Zn showed high pollution 

level; Pb showed moderate pollution level; Co, Mn, Sr and U were in a low polluted 

condition; Ni, Fe, Cr, V, Li, Ba and Rb showed no pollution. In general, Yundang Lagoon 

was in a low potential ecological risk. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Lithology is a key factor when used to restore vegetation in karst degraded 

ecosystems, and arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi and nitrogen-fixing bacteria play an 

important role in improving plant growth. However, little information is available 

regarding the effects of lithology on these two groups of microorganisms. To test whether 

these microbial communities are impacted by lithology, the abundance and composition of 

soil AM fungal and nitrogen-fixing bacteria communities were determined through terminal 

restriction fragment length polymorphism (T-RFLP) and real-time fluorescence-based 

quantitative PCR (real-time PCR). Three types of lithology (dolomite, limestone and 

dolomite-limestone) were selected in this study. The diversity, richness, and evenness of 

plant species were evaluated through field surveys and soil properties were measured. The 

results showed that the abundances of soil nitrogen-fixing bacteria and arbuscular 

mycorrhizal fungal communities were significantly influenced by lithology. The abundances 

of these two groups of microorganisms were the lowest in dolomite soil, inferior to 

dolomite-limestone soil, while highest in limestone soil. Similarly, the composition of 

soil nitrogen-fixing bacteria and AM fungi communities varied among lithology. A 

significant linear correlation was observed among soil organic carbon, available 

phosphorus, clay content and nitrogen-fixing bacterial abundance (P&lt;0.05), and a 

significant linear correlation among total nitrogen, clay content and AM fungal abundance 

(P&lt;0.05). Redundancy analysis showed that the composition of nitrogen-fixing bacterial 

community was closely linked to plant evenness, and the AM fungal community composition 

was closely linked to plant diversity (plant evenness, Shannon-wiener and richness). 

These results indicated that lithology influenced the abundances and compositions of soil 

nitrogen-fixing bacteria and arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungal communities mainly 

through plant and soil properties. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Urban environmental pollution can be revealed by the magnetic characteristics of 

street dust. Environmental magnetic measurements were carried out for the 151 samples of 

street dust collected in different functional zones of Xi'an city. Magnetic 

susceptibility varied within the range between 169.5&times;10<sup>-

8</sup>m<sup>3</sup>&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>and 977.48&times;10<sup>-

8</sup>m<sup>3</sup>&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, and the &chi;<inf>lf</inf>average value was 

415.66&times;10<sup>-8</sup>m<sup>3</sup>&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, which was 10 times 

higher than that of the background value. Isothermal remanent magnetization varied within 

the range between 2005.31&times;10<sup>-5</sup>A&middot;m<sup>2</sup>&middot;kg<sup>-

1</sup>and 10897.64&times;10<sup>-5</sup>A&middot;m<sup>2</sup>&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, 

and the SIRM average value was 5105.99&times;10<sup>-

5</sup>A&middot;m<sup>2</sup>&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>. The average value of frequency-

dependent magnetic susceptibility was 1.30, which was extremely low. The SIRM curve was 

consistent with &chi;<inf>lf</inf>curve. The results indicated a high concentration of 

magnetic minerals in street dust. The magnetic minerals were mainly low-coercivity 

ferrimagnetic (magnetite and maghemite) and anti-ferromagnetic minerals (hematite), which 

contributed to the magnetic susceptibility. The main domains of magnetic minerals were 

composed of multiple domain (MD) and pseudo-single domain (PSD) ferrimagnetic minerals 

demonstrating the pollution of environment. According to the spatial distribution of 

magnetic properties of street dust and the different functional zones of Xi'an city, 

seven districts (A, B, C, D, E, F and G areas) were divided, which were summarized as 

three pollution types: heavily polluted, moderately polluted and lightly polluted. In the 

ecological district of Baqiao (F area) which was heavily polluted, &chi;<inf>lf</inf>, 

SIRM and soft values were all the highest in the seven areas, and the main pollution 

sources were industry and vehicle emission. &chi;<inf>lf</inf>, SIRM and soft values were 

slightly higher in the high-tech industrial district (A area) and the central business 

and commerce district (B area), which was moderately polluted by industry and vehicle 

emission. However, the magnetic parameters were relatively low in the functional zones of 

education, tourism and culture (C, D, E and G area), demonstrating that these areas were 

only slightly polluted by vehicle emission. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Automatic aeration and recirculation of effluent were used to start CANON 

process with up flow sludge bed reactor, and the start-up and operation characteristics 

of the process were studied. The results showed that the CANON process could be started 

quickly and stably by the method of reoxygenation reflux under the conditions of sludge 

volume fraction 25%, NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N 157 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, HRT 2 h. 

After 50 days of operation, the total nitrogen removal rate increased from 1.31 

kg&middot;(m<sup>3</sup>&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>to 1.47 kg&middot;

(m<sup>3</sup>&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>; the reoxygenation reflux manner could effectively 

control the amount of dissolved oxygen in the reactor, resulting in DO&lt;0.01 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, which had a good inhibitory effect on the NOB in the system, 

and meanwhile provided a good growth environment for AnAOB; By controlling the reflux 

flow, the production rate of NO<inf>2</inf><sup>-</sup>could be precisely controlled, 

reaching a good balance with NO<inf>2</inf><sup>-</sup>consumption rates, and thus 

avoiding the accumulation of NO<inf>2</inf><sup>-</sup>and occurrence of nitration 

reactions. Therefore, reoxygenation reflux CANON process showed a great advantage in the 

operation stability, which provided a new model for the start-up and stable operation of 

CANON process. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Understanding the effects of acidic materials on the N transformations becomes 

of critical importance to choose the additives with preserving nitrogen during the manure 

composting. A 40 d static composting experiment was conducted in the laboratory to 

explore the effects of acidic materials on changes of temperature, pH, EC (electrical 

conductivity), GI (germination index), N compounds and TOC (total organic carbon) during 

the composting of pig manure and wheat straw. Three acidic materials were selected as the 

additives, including phosphate fertilizer (P), rotten apples (A) and vinegar (V). The 

results showed that the duration with temperature higher than 50&#8451; in four 

treatments all exceeded ten days and reached the health standard of high temperature 

composting. The addition of phosphate fertilizer delayed the time of the pile entering 

into the high temperature stage, decreased the pH, and increased the EC during the whole 

composting. On a mass basis, 53.1%, 36.2%, 46.5% and 41.5% of original amount of N in CK, 

P, A and V were lost during the first 16 d, but there was still 20% N loss during 16-24 d 

in P and V treatments. The NH<inf>3</inf>-N loss accounted for 26.0%, 11.8%, 21.5% and 

20.2% of the N loss. The addition of acidic materials effectively reduced the N loss and 

the emissions of NH<inf>3</inf>, and the phosphate fertilizer showed the best effect. In 

the end of composting, the GI all exceeded 80%, and met maturity requirements. &copy;

Abstract:A sequencing batch reactor (SBR) was operated with alternating anaerobic/oxic 

(An/O) condition to investigate the nitrogen and phosphorus removal performance of EBPR 

with DO=1 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>and the phosphorus recovery effect at extracting side 

stream ratio of 0, 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 anaerobic phosphorus supernatant. The removal efficiency 

of NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N was found to be relatively stable during all experimental 

stages but effluent COD of the system during later period remained as high as 81.3 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. In the absence of side stream, the average phosphorus removal 

efficiency was 89.4% and increased to 98.5% and 99.0% when the side stream ratio was 1/4 

and 1/3, respectively. However, the phosphorus removal performance began to fluctuate 

with side stream ratio of 1/2 and the lowest phosphorus removal rate was 65.4%. During 

each experimental stage, only one day effluent TP failed to meet the national wastewater 

discharge standard A with side stream ratio of 1/3 in the initial period. Besides, 93.3% 

of effluent TP which could meet the national standard with side stream ratio of 1/3 was 

far better than 45.5% of that with side stream ratio of 1/2. Nevertheless, the phosphorus 

recovery rate improved with the increase of side stream ratio. It was also observed that 

the TN removal rate dramatically decreased to 50.9% when the side stream ratio increased 

to 1/2. Consequently, a side stream ratio of 1/3 was found to be the optimal condition in 

the whole experimental stage, and EBPR system under low dissolved oxygen condition 

combined with phosphorus recovery through extracting side stream could greatly improve 

the economic and environmental benefits. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:The products of non-hazardous commercial sewage sludge were utilized in the 

accordance of the national standard in the experiment with sandy fluvo-aquic soil under 

wheat-maize rotation system during 2013 to 2015. The experiment focused on the effects of 

the use of non-hazardous sewage sludge on soil carbon pool and carbon pool management 

index to provide theoretical and technical basis for the resource utilization of non-

hazardous sewage sludge. The results showed that compared with CK, soil amended sludge 

significantly improved soil total organic carbon (TOC), soil microbial biomass carbon 

(SMBC), labile organic carbon (LOC), and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) to 8.40-14.74 

g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, 164.45-257.45 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, 3.58-4.88 

g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>and 81.16-101.58 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, soil amended sludge 

significantly enhanced SMBC, LOC and DOC by 84.00%-188.07%, 26.26%-58.03%, and 109.58%-

185.39% (P&lt;0.05) respectively, and 45 t&middot;hm<sup>-2</sup>sewage sludge (W3) had 

the most significant impact on soil carbon pool. The soil microbial entropy (SMBC/TOC), 

and utilization of labile organic carbon (LOC/TOC) increased by 8.02%-2.77% and 13.75%-

46.48% respectively, and the utilization of dissolved organic carbon (DOC/TOC) 

significantly decreased by 153.45%-195.40% (P&lt;0.05). SMBC/TOC, LOC/TOC, and DOC/TOC 

declined in treatments of soil amended sludge due to increased application of sewage 

sludge, which indicated that soil amended with 45 t&middot;hm<sup>-2</sup>of the sewage 

sludge improved the content of stable carbon resulting in the decease of the ratio. L and 

LI decreased with the increasing amount of sewage sludge indicating that soil amended 

with 45 t&middot;hm<sup>-2</sup>of the sewage sludge improved the content of stable 

carbon and was conducive to the accumulation of organic carbon. Soil amended with sludge 

significantly increased carbon pool management index (CMPI) by 153.45%-195.40% 

(P&lt;0.05), and W3 had the most significant effect on CMPI. Compared with TOC, CMPI 

could be more sensitive and direct to reflect the dynamic changes of soil nutrients and 

carbon pools through the correlation analysis and redundancy analysis. In summary, the 

application of 15-45 t&middot;hm<sup>-2</sup>sewage sludge could significantly enhance 

the soil carbon pool and carbon pool management index, especially 45 t&middot;hm<sup>-

2</sup>sewage sludge (W3). &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:A reactivity-based anthropogenic volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emission 

inventory in China in 2010 was developed on the basis of ozone formation potential (OFP), 

using the latest VOCs emission inventory, source profiles and maximum incremental 

reactivity (MIR) values. The results showed that the total anthropogenic OFP was 84187.61 

kt in China in 2010, of which 6 882.53 kt was from alkanes, 41496.92 kt from 

alkenes/alkynes, 32945.32 kt from aromatic hydrocarbons, 161.45 kt from halocarbons, and 

2701.40 kt from oxygenated organics. The top 10 species in terms of OFP consisted of 

propene, ethene, m/p-xylene, toluene, 1-butene, o-xylene, 1,2,4-trimethyl benzene, 1,3-

butadiene, m-ethyl toluene and ethyl benzene, contributing 63.95% to the total OFP but 

only 31.84% to the mass-based emission. Industrial sources accounted for the largest 

(49.29%) of the total OFP, followed by transportation sources (28.31%) and agricultural 

sources (22.40%). The key industrial sources with high reactivity were architectural 

decoration industry, oil refinery industry, storage and transport, machinery equipment 

industry, transport equipment industry and printing. Passenger cars, motorcycles and 

heavy duty vehicles were the major OFP sources of transportation. The two biomass burning 

sources were both the key OFP sources of agriculture. Shandong, Jiangsu, Guangdong, 

Zhejiang and Henan were the top five provinces with contributions of 39.65% of the total 

OFP in China. The reactivity-based emission inventory in this study would be of great 

significance for the formulation of reactivity-based ozone (O<inf>3</inf>) control 

strategies in China. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Bioaccumulation factor (BAF)plays a key role in identification of 

bioaccumulative substance and in assessment of chemical risks. In order to reveal the 

bioaccumulation behavior of fish in Dongjiang River, sediment, water and fish samples 

were collected from Dongjiang River and PBDEs, DBDPE, DP, TBBPA and HBCDs were measured. 

The ranges of lgBAF were 5.0-7.4, 6.1-7.1, 4.6-7.9, 2.6-4.6 and 4.8-7.7, respectively. In 

the present study, most HFRs had a lgBAF of higher than 3.7, which suggested that they 

might be bioaccumulative. The BAF values of HFRs increased with increasing 

lgK<inf>ow</inf>, when lgK<inf>ow</inf>&gt;7, the bioaccumulation extent decreased with 

the increase of lgK<inf>ow</inf>. Biotransformation of &gamma;-HBCD toward &alpha;-HBCD 

and the metabolism of BDE66 and BDE99 of these isomers might attribute to the deviation 

from the general trend predicted by K<inf>ow</inf>. More attention should be paid to 

DBDPE, since its BAF value was higher than that of BDE209. The BSAF values of most PBDEs, 

DBDPE, DP, TBBPA and HBCDs congeners in three fish species were less than 1, indicating 

that these compounds were unlikely to become a source of pollution to the aquatic 

organisms due to the poor bioavailability. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Through the environmental factors impact experiments, such as current intensity, 

initial pH value of the reaction solution, and the type and concentration of the 

electrolyte, effect and mechanism of electrochemically enhanced removal of nitrobenzene 

from aqueous solution on activated carbon fibers (ACF)-ozone technique were studied. The 

result showed that compared with the ACF-O<inf>3</inf>system, the removal efficiency of 

NB in electrochemically enhanced ACF-O<inf>3</inf>system was significantly improved. The 

effect of current intensity on the NB removal efficiency in the electrochemically 

enhanced ACF-O<inf>3</inf>system was not significant. O<inf>3</inf>concentration had some 

effect on the NB removal efficiency. The pH value of the initial reaction solution had a 

great influence on the catalytic activity of ACF in ACF-O<inf>3</inf>system. The presence 

of inorganic salts such as sodium sulfate, sodium nitrate and sodium chloride inhibited 

the catalytic ability of ACF in O<inf>3</inf>system. In addition, ACF was destroyed by 

ozone and the promoting effect of ACF was reduced. When the cathode electric field was 

applied on the surface of ACF, the removal effect of the organic compounds by ACF-

O<inf>3</inf>was improved significantly and the structure of ACF was not destroyed by 

ozone. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:This paper analyzed 17 polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans

(PCDD/Fs) by HRGC/HRMS in the flue gas of a certain municipal solid waste incinerator

(MSWI) and its surrounding air and other possible sources in Guangdong. It discussed the 

feature of homologs and main toxic monomers in all samples. It also investigated the 

relationship among surrounding area, MSWI and possible sources using principle component 

analysis (PCA) and cluster analysis. The results showed that the concentration of PCDD/Fs 

was higher in the flue gas than the ambient air, moreover non-effect suffered by 

prevailing wind direction. The possible sources might be tyre factory and open burning 

based on spot survey. The concentration of PCDD/Fs was lower in tyre factory than upwind 

station, but higher at open burning spot than outdrop monitoring station. The analysis of 

homologs showed that OCDD, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8-HpCDD and 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8-HpCDF were 

the main materials in the flue gas and air, meanwhile OCDF was also found in atmosphere. 

There was similar feature of 17 PCDD/Fs between surrounding monitoring station and tyre 

factory, and the same between flue gas and open burning. The further analysis showed that 

the linearly dependent coefficients of 1, 2, 3, 7, 8-PeCDD and 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8-HxCDF 

were 0.95 and 0.75, respectively. It showed the strong correlation of two monomers in all 

ambient air samples. The PCA and cluster analysis showed that MSWI influenced the 

surrounding air, tyre factory had an impact on upwind station, and open burning had a 

lower effect on outdrop monitoring station. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Sediment columns in the southeast and east of Dianchi Lake were taken as the 

object of the study to determine ages by<sup>210</sup>Pb dating method. The contents and 

sediment fluxes of total organic carbon (TOC) and n-alkanes of the sediments were 

investigated, and organic sources were tracked according to the relevant indexes of n-

alkanes. The results indicated that TOC contents and sediment fluxes of two sampling 

sediments both presented an increasing trend on the whole; Sediment fluxes of n-alkanes 

varied as three stages: increasing period, decreasing period and re-increasing period. 

When the sediment fluxes of n-alkanes and TOC both went up, it showed that they had the 

same sources: sediments in the lake and carried by the rivers; From 1980s to the end of 

20<sup>th</sup>century, sediment fluxes of n-alkanes were going down while those of TOC 

were going up. This result means there was a big difference in the sources of n-alkanes 

and TOC. The bacteria and algae in the lake made a great contribution to n-alkanes while 

TOC was mainly influenced by sediments in the lake and carried by the rivers. n-alkanes 

of the two sampling sites both ranged from C<inf>12</inf>to C<inf>35</inf>. Based on the 

basic features and relevant indexes of n-alkanes, we proposed that emergent plants made 

big contributions to the sources of organic matter in the sediments of Dianchi Lake, 

simultaneously, bacteria and algae had significant contributions to the sources of 

organic matter in shallow depth of Dianchi Lake. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:The soil and water loss problem in rock mining areas is an extremely serious 

problem, and microbes play significant roles in ecological restoration of those areas. In 

this study, directive screening was used to explore the efficiency of microbe-mediated 

habitat restoration and the underlying mechanisms. A bacterial strain NLX-4, which was 

then identified as Pseudomonas protegens according to its 16S rRNA gene sequence, was 

screened out as an efficient silicate dissolution bacterium with the ability to secrete 

siderophore and indole-3-acetic acid (IAA). Moreover, pH value, element (K, Al, Si) 

release, organic acid content, amino acid concentration, polysaccharide content, and rock 

particle diameter variation in culture medium were analyzed to explore the ability of P. 

protegens NLX-4 to promote dolomite dissolution under controlled experimental conditions. 

These results showed that P. protegens NLX-4 could play a positive role in dolomite 

dissolution by producing tartaric acid (&gt;777 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>) and 

polysaccharides (&gt;8.21g&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>). Therefore, P. protegens NLX-4 is an 

efficient microbial resource that can be used in rehabilitation of abandoned mines and 

has great application potential. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Aiming at the problem of phosphorus removal in water, Mg/Al-layered double 

hydroxides (Mg/Al-LDHs) were synthesized via optimized constant pH co-precipitation 

method, and highly efficient phosphorus adsorbent Mg/Al-layered double oxide(Mg/Al-LDO) 

was obtained when it was calcined at high temperature. Based on the adsorption 

characteristics of phosphorus removal, the study combined Zeta potential, X-ray 

diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) to analyze the 

changes of isoelectric point, crystal structure and functional group before and after 

adsorption. In addition, Mg/Al-LDO of phosphorus adsorption mechanism was discussed. The 

results indicated that using the optimized co-precipitation method in the conditions of 

Mg/Al=2&#8758;1, calcination temperature 450&#8451;, and calcination time 2 h, the 

Mg/Al-LDO adsorption capacity of phosphate was the best, and the maximum adsorption 

capacity could reach 176.94 mg&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, which was basically consistent with 

the theoretical adsorption capacity of 191.57 mg&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, far higher than 

those of Mg/Al-LDHs and other phosphorus adsorbents. The results showed that the 

experimental data has the best fitting result with pseudo-second-order kinetics model. 

The adsorption process was consistent with Langmuir adsorption isotherm model. The 

results of Zeta potential, XRD and FTIR showed that phosphorus adsorption of Mg/Al-LDO 

was accomplished co-operatively by electrostatic attraction, anion in layer, ions 

exchange, and surface co-ordination. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Vegetations grow vigorously in the water-level-fluctuating zone (WLFZ) of Three 

Gorges Reservoir (TGR) during the non-flooded period. Low molecular weight organic acids 

(LMWOAs) excreted from the roots of these plants may active the heavy metals in soil. In 

order to investigate the desorption kinetics of Pb in the vegetation covered soil of TGR, 

the LMWOAs released from Cynodon dactylon and Echinochloa crusgalli roots, which are the 

dominant species in WLFZ, were analyzed both qualitatively and quantitatively. 

Furthermore, single and mixed species of LMWOAs were also used in the simulation. The 

results showed that the variety and content of LMWOAs secreted from Cynodon dactylon 

roots were larger and higher than those of Echinochloa crusgalli. Citric acid, malonic 

acid, acetic acid and malic acid were the same LMWOAs released from the two types of 

plants. The contents of acetic acid were the highest among all LMWOAs, which were 0.765 

and 0.261 mmol&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>in Cynodon dactylon and Echinochloa crusgalli roots, 

respectively.Citric acid, malonic acid and acetic acid were the same LMWOAs detected from 

their rhizosphere soils. In the citric acid, malonic acid and acetic acid desorption 

test, the desorption captivities of Pb were inhibited when the concentration of LMWOAs 

was lower than 1 mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. The desorption ability displayed a 

decreasing order of malonic acid&gt;citric acid&gt;acetic acid. However, the three LMWOAs 

promoted the desorption of Pb in soil when their concentrations were higher than 1 

mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. The desorption ability displayed a decreasing 

order of citric acid&gt;malonic acid&gt;acetic acid. During the entire process of 

desorption, 0-240 min was the fast reaction stage, and the remaining time was the slow 

reaction stage. The pseudo-second order kinetics equation could fit best for the kinetic 

process. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:The TiO<inf>2</inf>/bentonite composite was synthesized by modifying calcium-

based bentonite with Nano-TiO<inf>2</inf>. The products before and after modification 

were characterized via the approach of X-ray power diffraction(XRD) and scanning electron 

microscope(SEM).The effect of TiO<inf>2</inf>/bentonite composite on mercury removal from 

aqueous solutions of HgCl<inf>2</inf>was studied at different dosage, pH, adsorption time 

and the initial concentration of Hg<sup>2+</sup>was investigated and compared with the 

bentonite by indoor simulation experiment, as well as the orthogonal experiments to 

determine the optimal condition of Hg<sup>2+</sup>adsorption. The experimental results 

showed: after modified by TiO<inf>2</inf>, TiO<inf>2</inf>/bentonite composite particles 

were apparently smaller, the basal spacing was increased and with a loose and porous 

structure. The adsorption rates of TiO<inf>2</inf>/bentonite composite on 

Hg<sup>2+</sup>were increased compared with bentonite. The Hg<sup>2+</sup>adsorption 

rates were increased with the increasing dosages, pH and adsorption time. The adsorption 

rates were higher than 98.0% when the dosage was 1.5 g&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, pH 7.0, and 

the adsorption time was 120 min. The adsorption rates became smaller with increasing 

initial concentration of Hg<sup>2+</sup>. False secondary dynamic equation could describe 

the adsorption of TiO<inf>2</inf>/bentonite composite on Hg<sup>2+</sup>, and the 

chemical adsorption was dominant. The adsorption isotherm of Hg<sup>2+</sup>conformed to 

Langmuir equation, indicating that the adsorption of Hg<sup>2+</sup>was typical monolayer 

adsorption. The optimal experimental condition was: dosage of 2.0 g&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>, pH 8.0, adsorption time of 16 h and the initial Hg<sup>2+</sup>concentration of 

45 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. Under this condition, the adsorption rate was 99.9%, and the

Abstract:To get a better understanding of the microbial autotrophic carbon sequestration 

potential of paddy fields and its mechanisms, soil incubation experiment was conducted 

for four representative paddy soils. The molecular biological methods [quantitative PCR 

(qPCR), clone library and terminal-restriction fragment length polymorphism (T-RFLP) 

technique] based on cbbL and cbbM genes encoding the key enzymes [ribulose-1, 5-

bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RubisCO)] of Calvin cycle were used to determine the 

abundance and diversity of autotrophic microbes. The results showed that, after 45 days 

of incubation, carbon dioxide fixation autotrophic microbial abundances were generally 

increased compared with those before incubation, and cbbL gene abundances were 

approximately three magnitudes higher than those of cbbM. Dominant microbial populations 

varied among the four paddy soils, and most of these OTUs were distantly related to known 

sequences, only part of them could be grouped into Proteobacteria and Actinobacteria. RDA 

analysis results showed that soil organic carbon (SOC), cation exchange capacity (CEC), 

pH, clay, silk and sand content had significant effects on the CO<inf>2</inf>fixation 

microbial community. Consequently, the results of this study provide significant 

reference to understand the role of microorganisms in carbon cycle process. The results 

are helpful for providing a scientific basis for scientific management of paddy soil 

fertility and low carbon agriculture construction. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Based on water quality monitoring data of Lake Erhai from 1990 to 2013, the 

yearly and seasonally response characteristics of algal chlorophyll-a to total nitrogen 

(TN), total phosphorus (TP) and water temperature was investigated using quantile 

regression method. It indicated that water temperature was always the primary limiting 

factor of algal biomass indicated by chlorophyll a (Chl-a) across recent 24 years, but 

its limiting effect on algal Chl-a content was kept descending sharply and replaced much 

by nutrients (e.g. P, N) with the increasing eutrophic level. Especially the slope values 

of TP on Chl-a were kept ascending from -0.3 to 0.8. Since 2002, the positive effect of 

TN on Chl-a presented slow descending tendency, and P became the most important limiting 

nutrient factor of algal growth. According to the seasonal variation analysis, water 

temperature and N had dominant effects on algal Chl-a in spring and autumn, but they were 

replaced by P in the case of Chl-a&gt;8 mg&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>in spring. In summer, N 

and P had strong interactive impacts on the algal growth, and the positive effect of P 

was stronger than that of N in the case of Chl-a&gt;3 mg&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>. In 

winter, algal biomass was co-limited by temperature and P. It suggested that P reduction 

is the prior choice of eutrophication control of Lake Erhai, and simultaneously reducing 

N load is necessary in the background of global warming. In addition,so far a emergency 

controlling measure should be taken to monitor algal blooming due to sharp ascending of 

water temperature within a few days in spring and autumn. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:The single-stage A/O and multi-stage A/O processes were simulated by sequencing 

batch reactors (SBRs) with alternate stirring and aeration. The removal efficiency of 

nitrogen and the release mechanism of N<inf>2</inf>O were studied under the identical 

conditions of influent quality, hydraulic retention time (HRT), sludge retention time

(SRT), temperature and anoxic/oxic (A/O) retention time ratio. Experimental results 

showed that COD or ammonia-nitrogen removal had no significant difference between the 

single-stage and the multi-stage A/O processes for the influent quality equivalent to 

municipal wastewater. However, TN removal efficiency of the former was better than the 

later with 72.1% and 52.2%, respectively. In the conversion of total nitrogen, during the 

typical cycle in the single-stage A/O and multi-stage A/O processes, the yields of 

N<inf>2</inf>O were 16.95 mg and 3.95 mg, respectively. The conversion rate, which is the 

ratio of N<inf>2</inf>O yield and TN removal, was respectively 11.47% and 4.11%. 

N<inf>2</inf>O production and emission occurred mainly in aerobic (nitrification) phase 

while there was little N<inf>2</inf>O emission in anoxic (denitrification) phase. 

Although the dominant species of AOB was both Nitrosomonas in the single-stage A/O and 

the multi-stage A/O processes under the same operating conditions, it was more conducive 

to the growth of nitrifying bacteria (AOB, NOB) in the single-stage A/O process with the 

greater abundance of Nitrosomonas. Meanwhile, the type and abundance of NOB in the 

single-stage A/O process were significantly more than in the multi-stage A/O process too. 

Therefore, it is more competitive to deal with the high-strengthening ammonia-nitrogen 

wastewater in the single-stage A/O process. In the actual operation of wastewater 

treatment, using appropriate partitions of A/O or oxygen-supplying modes can not only 

result in better nitrogen removal but also decrease the secondary pollution caused by 

N<inf>2</inf>O to the atmosphere. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Based on environmental statistical data and emission factor, an anthropogenic 

volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emission inventory was established for the Chang-Zhu-

Tan region, and a grid with spatial resolution of 3 km&times;3 km was built according to 

the spatial feature data. Ozone formation potential (OFP) and secondary organic aerosol 

(SOA) formation potential of anthropogenic sources were also estimated. The results 

showed that the total anthropogenic VOCs emission was about 113.49 kt in Chang-Zhu-Tan 

region and the main sources were industrial processes, solvent utilization and vehicles 

with the VOCs emission of 35.88 kt, 28.72 kt and 22.13 kt, respectively. Paving pitch and 

architecture wall painting accounted for the majority of the solvent utilization and the 

building materials industry accounted for 75.34% of VOCs emission from the industrial 

processes. Liling was the largest contributor compared to the other cities in Chang-Zhu-

Tan region, where the VOCs emission from these anthropogenic sources in 2014 was 16.58 

kt. The total OFP of these sources was 375.33 kt, in which solvent utilization 

contributed 27.28% and the O<inf>3</inf>generative capacity of biomass burning was the 

largest. Solvent utilization contributed 35.35% to the total SOA formation potentials and 

its SOA generative capacity was also the largest. The spatial distribution 

characteristics revealed that the VOCs emission mostly originated from urban area. &copy;

Abstract:Microbial fuel cell (MFC) technology has potential in recovering bioelectricity 

from different types of waste, which attracts more and more attention in the field of 

environment and energy. However, low power density, high cost and low substrate 

degradation rate, closely associated with anode performance, limit its practical 

application. In this study, proportional polyaniline (PANI) together with graphene was 

chosen to obtain the PANI dopped graphene composite. The as-received composite was 

modified onto the surface of glassy carbon electrode. The results of electrochemical 

analysis showed that the optimal mass ratio of graphene was 20% for cyclic voltammetry 

(CV) and linear sweep voltammetry (LSV) analysis. The anodes with 5% graphene produced a 

peak power density of (831&plusmn;45) mW&middot;m<sup>-2</sup>, which was 1.2, 1.3, 1.3, 

1.5, 1.8 times of those with 20% graphene, 1% graphene, graphene, PANI and carbon cloth, 

respectively. Moreover, 5% graphene reactors showed the maximum values in output voltage, 

open-circuit voltage (OCV), chemical oxygen demand (COD) removal rate, coulombic 

efficiency (CE), and biomass density. The polarization resistance was only (24&plusmn;2) 

&Omega; in 5% graphene reactors, which was 19.8% of that of carbon cloth. The results of 

electrochemical analysis were not consistent with those of bioelectrochemical analysis, 

demonstrating that the biocompatibility of electrode was one of the important factors 

affecting MFC performance. 5% graphene anode showed full advantages of graphene and PANI, 

which improved the performance of MFC. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Zirconium modified diatomite was obtained by modifying raw diatomite with 

zirconium and the mass fraction of zirconia was 12.39% in the obtained material, which 

was proved to be amorphous via XRD. SEM images showed that porous floccules covered the 

surface of diatomite after modification and the specific surface area of the zirconium 

modified diatomite was 75.22 m<sup>2</sup>&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, larger than that of raw 

diatomite (14.00 m<sup>2</sup>&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>). XPS spectra indicated that 

zirconia and diatomite were bonded together through chemical linkage, rather than 

physical deposition. The adsorption isotherm of phosphate by zirconium modified diatomite 

was fitted better to the Langmuir model with a calculated maximum adsorption capacity 

reaching 10.56 mg&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>. The adsorption amount of zirconium oxide 

component in the material was estimated to be 81.67 mg&middot;g<sup>-

previous studies. The adsorption amount of phosphate by zirconium modified diatomite 

decreased with the increase of pH. The adsorption was proved to be a ligand exchange 

process, supported by the XPS spectra of Zr3d region before and after adsorption. 

Chloride ion, sulfate ion and nitrate ion did not inhibit the adsorption of phosphate on 

the material, whereas coexistence of bicarbonate ions competed with phosphate ions to a 

certain extent. When treating eutrophic lake water with a phosphate concentration of 2

Abstract:In suit inundation experiments of three typical herbaceous plants were conducted 

in field to investigate the mercury release characteristics of plants grown in the 

water-level fluctuation zone of the Three Gorges Reservoir after flooding by regulating 

the water level. To realize this objective, this study mainly focused on the dynamic 

change of total mercury (THg) concentrations in plants after inundation, the release rate 

and flux of THg from plants and its release load in this region. The results showed that 

the release process of THg in plants fitted exponential curve, suggesting that mercury 

release rate was quick in the initial inundation period and then flat afterwards as the 

decomposing plants. The THg release amounts (followed the order of Alternanthera 

philoxeroides&gt;Polygonum lapathifolium&gt;Cynodon dactylon) were probably influenced by 

initial C/N ratio and THg concentrations of plants. The decrement of THg concentrations 

in per unit mass of plants residue was found to be generally proportional to their 

initial C/N ratio, while the THg release amounts were generally proportional to the 

initial THg concentrations of plants. The total release loads of three plants 

(Alternanthera philoxeroides, Polygonum lapathifolium, Cynodon dactylon) were estimated 

to be 167.31, 78.13 and 88.33 mg&middot;hm<sup>-2</sup>, respectively, according to their 

weight distribution and biomass in the water-level fluctuation zone of the Three Gorges

Abstract:To study the chemical composition and pollution sources of the fine particulate 

matter during the four seasons in Nanning, single particle aerosol mass spectrometry was 

performed to characterize the fine particulate matter in Nanning during the four seasons. 

The correlation (R<sup>2</sup>) between the fine particulate matter number concentration 

and the mass concentration of the fine particulate matter obtained using SPAMS was all 

above 0.75 in the observation period. The particle number concentration could reflect the 

atmospheric pollution situation to some degree. The average mass spectrogram of the fine 

particulate matter reflected that secondary pollutants were more in winter and spring in 

Nanning. The Art-2a classification method was used to classify the chemical composition 

of the fine particulate matter. The results showed that the number concentration of the 

chemical composition and sources of pollution had differences in the four seasons. 

Chemical composition could reflect pollution sources. The elevated elemental carbon was 

positively with increasing coal combustion in winter. The elevated organic carbon was 

positively correlated with motor vehicle source in autumn. Rich potassium particles, 

levoglucosan and substance were positively correlated with biomass burning source and 

dust in summer. The rich sodium particles and heavy metals were higher in spring. During 

the process of increasing pollution, the contributions of biomass and coal combustion 

sources were large. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Aiming at the special geo-climatic conditions and typical problems constraining 

the development of villages and towns, making villages and towns have the following 

characteristics: green and low-carbon, energy saving and environmental friendly, the 

coupling process of adsorption by carbonized rice husk particles and biological oxidation 

using Bacillus megaterium bacteria was developed for purifying high iron-manganese from 

groundwater in the cold villages and towns. The quick start-up method of biological 

filter at low temperature was studied. Based on the contact oxidation and biological 

method, iron removal efficiency and reaction rate in different filtration layers under 

different filtration conditions were comparatively analyzed, and iron removal mechanism 

of biological filter was determined. Filter materials and the solid samples in backwash 

water at different stages were characterized and the manganese removal mechanism of 

biological filter was analyzed through SEM, FTIR, XPS, Raman spectra and EPR. The results 

showed that the active biological membrane reached mature and stable only after 15 d with 

the operation mode of bacteria liquid cycle and low filtration rate in the filter column. 

The effluent concentration met the requirements of drinking water quality (GB 5749-2006) 

in the stable operation process. Fe, Mn and bacteria were lower than 0.3 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, 0.1 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, 100 CFU&middot;mL<sup>-1</sup>, 

respectively. Iron removal mechanism relied mainly on the physical and chemical effects, 

supplemented by biological function. During the biofilm culturing stage and initial 

stable operation stage of filter column, manganese removal relied mainly on the 

biological effect. The physical chemistry was preferred at later stable operation stage. 

The study provides technical support for the applications of treating collectively

Abstract:Characterization of the forms of phosphorus (P) in four organic composts 

including compost of hulls and leaves of Castanea mollissima, edible fungi residues, corn 

stalks and chicken manure (BYZ), compost of edible fungi residues and chicken manure 

(ZF), composts of hulls and leaves of C. mollissima, edible fungi residues and chicken 

manure (BZ1 and BZ2) in Chinese chestnut producing area was conducted by sequential P 

fractionation developed by Dou et al. Field trial was conducted to study the effects of 

compost application on leaf phosphorus content of Castanea mollissima. The results showed 

that total phosphorus content (TP) of organic composts ranked as follows: BZ1 (10.61 

g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>)&gt;ZF (9.03 g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>)&gt;BYZ (8.56 

g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>)&gt;BZ2 (7.68 g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>), and the inorganic 

phosphorus (P<inf>i</inf>) accounted for 62.88%-73.62% of the total phosphorus in the 

organic composts. The content and proportion of HCl-P in the total fractionated 

phosphorus (P<inf>rt</inf>) was the highest among P forms in ZF, while that of 

H<inf>2</inf>O-P was the highest in BYZ, BZ1 and BZ2.The content of NaOH-P was very low 

in all the composts. Active H<inf>2</inf>O-Por NaHCO<inf>3</inf>-P had the highest 

inorganic phosphorus proportion (89.17%-96.00%) of all the P forms. The major 

P<inf>i</inf>forms in BZ2 were H<inf>2</inf>O-and HCl-extractable P fractions, while 

H<inf>2</inf>O-P<inf>i</inf>, HCl-P<inf>i</inf>and NaHCO<inf>3</inf>-P<inf>i</inf>were 

major P<inf>i</inf>forms in BYZ, BZ1 and ZF. Residual-P was the predominant organic 

phosphorus form, and BZ2 showed the highest Residual-P proportion of the total 

fractionated phosphorus (P<inf>rt</inf>) among all the composts. Leaf phosphorus contents 

per unit area of Castanea mollissima by field trial on the added phosphorus-equivalent 

basis were expressed as: BZ2&gt;BZ1&gt;BYZ&gt;ZF&gt;CK. Increment of leaf phosphorus 

content per unit area in Julyand per month on average showed positive relationship with 

the content and proportion of H<inf>2</inf>O-P<inf>i</inf>in the total fractionated 

phosphorus of composts, which presumably played a key role in leaf phosphorus absorption 

of C. mollissima measured in the year of deep concentrated fertilization. The results 

suggested that composts of hulls and leaves of C. mollissima, edible fungi residues and 

chicken manure (BZ2) was a good choice in given area for aerobic composting raw material 

system in which organic wastes from Chinese chestnut industry accounted for 80% (hulls 

and leaves of Castanea mollissima and edible fungi residues accounted for 60% and 20% 

respectively), which had a high proportion of H<inf>2</inf>O-P<inf>i</inf>and organic 

Residual-P pool and led to the highest leaf phosphorus content of C. mollissima. &copy;

Abstract:During the 29th Chinese National Antarctic Research Expedition (CHIANRE), 

individual particle samples were collected from South China to Antarctic during November 

2012 to April 2013. A transmission electron microscopy with energy-dispersive X-ray 

spectrometry (TEM-EDS) was employed to analyze the morphology, mixing state, composition, 

and relative abundances of individual aerosol particles. Atmospheric particles were 

classified into four types: sea salt, mineral, S-rich and C-rich. Sea salt aerosols (SSA) 

were dominant in the marine particles from South China to Antarctic, and they were 

further divided into three sub-types: fresh SSA, partially aged SSA, and fully aged SSA. 

Partially and fully aged SSA accounted for 86% of total SSA number. Interestingly, 

surface of partially aged SSA and fully aged SSA contained abundant rod-like 

Na<inf>2</inf>SO<inf>4</inf>. Mineral dust particles increased in the coastal areas which 

were influenced by continental air. In addition, we found that S-rich particles were 

abundant at two sampling sites (the middle eastern of Indian Ocean and Antarctic inland). 

The back trajectories of air masses indicated that these S-rich particles were mainly 

formed via the oxidation of dimethyl sulfide (DMS) emitted from the marine 

phytoplanktons. Our study suggests that the SSA aging process in the South Hemisphere 

atmosphere was controlled by the DMS which is different from the SSA aging under the 

influence of anthropogenic pollutants in the North Hemisphere. &copy; 2017, Science

Abstract:An anaerobic sequencing batch reactor (ASBR) was operated to investigate the 

recovery performance of ANAMMOX reactor after the inhibition of 100% seawater 

concentration. The results showed that the nitrogen removal performance of ANAMMOX 

reactor suffered inhibition of high salinity concentration. However, it could enter a 

period of stable nitrogen removal efficiency again after an interim stable period and a 

recovery period. The nitrogen removal rate (NRR) could reach 0.52 kg&middot;

(m<sup>3</sup>&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>, which was similar to the control group, containing 

10% seawater and having a NRR of 0.462 kg&middot;(m<sup>3</sup>&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>. 

The modified Logistic model and modified Gompertz model were revised and their 

application field was broadened. The re-modified Logistic model was suggested to be used 

to simulate the NRR recovery process of ANAMMOX reactor that suffered inhibition of 100% 

seawater concentration. The doubling time of NRR was calculated to be 11.359 d using the 

prediction formula established for the recovery time of NRR. &copy; 2017, Science Press.

Abstract:Electrode corrosion and salt crystallization are important challenges that 

restrict the engineering application of electrokinetic technology. In the present study, 

using stainless steel as an electrode, and deionized water (DW), citric acid (CA) and 

polyaspartic acid (PASP) as electrolytes, Pb/Cu-contaminated soil was remediated by 

electrokinetic. All of the EK experiments were conducted in a 2 L soil cell reactor with 

a moisture level of about 35% blended with 1000 mg&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>of Pb and 778 

mg&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>of Cu under a constant voltage gradient (1 V&middot;cm<sup>-

1</sup>, 2 V&middot;cm<sup>-1</sup>) for 150 h. The removal efficiency of heavy metals 

and influencing factors, as well as the phenomenon and mechanism of electrode corrosion 

and salt crystallization were explored. The experimental results showed under the action 

of electric field, the Ca in the test soil would move to the cathode, and the crystal was 

formed in the alkaline condition. Additionally, the conductivity of the electrode was 

reduced. During the EK process, water at the anode was primarily oxidized, undergoing a 

reduction reaction at the cathode. Because H<sup>+</sup>and OH<sup>-</sup>were 

transported through the soil by electromigration and electro-osmotic flow (EOF), changes 

in soil pH could occur. The concentrations distribution of Pb-Cu appeared to be related 

to the distribution of soil pH in the cell, which might be associated with the desorption 

and hydroxide precipitation of Pb-Cu. PASP resulted in obvious inhibitory effect on the 

corrosion of stainless steel electrode, CA and PASP could clearly destroy the formation 

of CaCO<inf>3</inf>crystal, while barely effectively disrupted the formation of Ca(OH)

Abstract:In order to study the variation patterns of bacterial activity in water 

distributed networks, this paper studied a simulated water distribution network in a 

northern China city. Microscopic examination and bacterial counts were conducted on 

acridine orange-stained bacteria using fluorenscence microscopy to ensure precise 

quantitative analysis. The ratio of viable bacterial count to total bacterial count was 

used to characterize the overall bacterial activity in the drinking water distribution 

network, as well as to study the impacts imposed by various factors. As indicated, this 

method was proved to be rapid, reliable and repeatable in bacterial counts. Populations 

of viable bacteria and total bacteria in water samples were 10<sup>3</sup>-

10<sup>4</sup>cells&middot;mL<sup>-1</sup>and 10<sup>4</sup>-

10<sup>5</sup>cells&middot;mL<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. There was a positive 

correlation between the bacterial activity and water temperature, turbidity, and flow 

velocity. There was also a negative correlation between bacterial activity and residual 

chlorine after the operation stabilized. The capacity of different forms of bacteria in 

the simulated water distribution networks with tolerance of sodium hypochlorite was in 

the following order: long-rod-shaped, spherical-shaped, short-rod-shaped, and curved-

shaped. The reactivation and reproduction capability of rod-shaped bacteria was stronger. 

There were more short-rod-shaped bacteria in summer water samples than in winter. &copy;

Abstract:Intact ladderane lipids are a special kind of phospholipids in the anammoxosome 

membrane of AnAOB. Phospholipid organic mixture was extracted respectively from four 

sludge samples in anaerobic EGSB reactor,aerobic SBR reactor, autotrophic nitrogen 

removal SBBR reactor and anaerobic ammonium oxidation EGSB reactor. Phospholipid extracts 

of sludge were detected by the HPLC-ESI-MS/MS method to determine the types of intact 

ladderane lipids, and the specificity of intact ladderane lipids was also analyzed, at 

the same time, the bacterial community structure of autotrophic nitrogen removal SBBR 

reactor and anaerobic ammonium oxidation EGSB reactor was determined by high-throughput 

sequencing technology. Analytical results of intact ladderane lipids showed that intact 

ladderane lipids were not detected from anaerobic EGSB reactor and aerobic SBR reactor, 

and were detected from autotrophic nitrogen removal SBBR reactor and anaerobic ammonium 

oxidation EGSB reactor. Five kinds of intact ladderane lipids were detected in the 

phospholipid extract of sludge from autotrophic nitrogen removal SBBR reactor, and seven 

kinds of intact ladderane lipids were detected in the phospholipid extract of sludge from 

anaerobic ammonium oxidation EGSB reactor. The results of high-throughput sequencing 

confirmed that the autotrophic nitrogen SBBR reactor contained AnAOB of the genera 

Candidatus Brocadia and Candidatus Jettenia, and the anaerobic ammonium oxidation EGSB 

reactor contained AnAOB of the genera Candidatus Kuenenia and Candidatus Jettenia. These 

results illustrated that intact ladderane lipids were the peculiar phospholipids in 

AnAOB. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:In order to reveal the effects of heavy metal pollution on microbial community 

compositions and microbial community diversity in tailing area, we conducted an 

experiment by examining the microbial community in tailing water, sediments and tailing 

sand in Shibahe copper tailing in Zhongtiao Mountain. Differences in microbial community 

compositions in different habitats and their relationships with environmental parameters 

were analyzed. The results showed that the richness and diversity of microbial community 

were the largest in tailing sand, but the lowest in tailing water. Microbial community 

compositions were similar between tailing water and sediments. There were significant 

positive correlations between the relative abundance of the dominant family 

(Sphingomonadaceae) and contents of heavy metals (Cd, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn), while there 

were significant negative correlations between relative abundances of Caulobacteraceae, 

Methylobacteriaceae, Nocardioidaceae, Microbacteriaceae, Micrococcaceae, Streptococcaceae 

and Paenibacillaceae and heavy metal contents. It showed that most of the bacteria were 

inhibited by heavy metals, but Sphingomonadaceae had a higher tolerance to heavy metals 

which may indicate that it has a potential for remediation of heavy metal contamination.

Abstract:Sanshan island of Taihu Lake National Wetland Park in Suzhou was taken as a case 

study to explore the relationship between land use types and water quality under 

different spatial and temporal conditions. Firstly, principal component analysis was used 

to calculate the comprehensive index of water quality for a given sampling site. 

Secondly, landscape development intensity index (LDI), which can represent combined 

effects of land use types, was calculated based on GIS spatial analysis technology. 

Finally, overall correlation between water quality and land use types was obtained by 

using Pearson correlation analysis. The results showed that the water quality varied with 

the spatial distribution of the wetland park. Totally, water quality of west region was 

good and water quality of east region was poor; Built-up land and water quality 

integrated index exhibited obvious positive correlation. And natural water and water 

quality index was significantly negatively correlated; By building relationship of water 

quality index and LDI index within 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400, 450 and 500 m 

radius buffer, Pearson's r values between them were 0.641, 0.678, 0.691, 0.685, 0.691, 

0.695, 0.680, 0.653 and 0.649 respectively (P&lt;0.01). These statistics indicated 

obvious and stable overall correlation between land use types and water quality. This can 

reflect a variety of land use types'comprehensive effects on wetland water quality, and 

partly overcome the weakness of incomplete and difficult explanation for water quality 

changes with single type of land use. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:In order to understand the changes of dissolved carbon and dissolved nitrogen in 

the water of Three Gorges Reservoir, this research was carried out once a week by the 

bank of Yangtze River in Fuling beach from March 2011 to August 2012, and the variation 

characteristics of dissolved C, N composition and their source were analyzed. The results 

showed that the concentration of DOC ranged from 0.64 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to 9.07 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, and had obvious seasonal change: summer&gt;spring and 

autumn&gt;winter. Annual total input of DOC was 1.78 &times; 10<sup>9</sup>kg, the 

seasonal change trend of the total input of DOC was similar to that of the concentration 

of DOC; The concentration of DTN ranged from 2.59 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to 4.35 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>: spring&gt;winter&gt;summer&gt;autumn, annual total input was 

1.32 &times; 10<sup>9</sup>kg,the seasonal input changed in the order of 

summer&gt;autumn&gt;spring&gt;winter, among them DON, NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N 

accounted for 30.35%-63.45% and 35.87%-67.72%, respectively. DOC was affected by 

precipitation and air temperature, and mainly came from the exogenous input, in the 

spring and summer its exogenous input increased with the increase of rainfall runoff, but 

in the autumn and winter the endogenous contribution increased; DTN was relatively 

affected by human emissions and water dilution. Correlation analysis showed that there 

was a significant negative correlation between DOC and DON (P&lt;0.05), DOC/DON ratio 

usually reflects the source of the DOM, the DOC/DON in the water of three gorges 

reservoir ranged from 0.35 to 7.28, the source of DOM had obvious seasonal 

characteristics. DOC/DON was the highest in summer, and the DOM mainly came from 

watershed erosion; DOC/DON was the lowest in winter, and the DOM mainly came from living 

sewage and endogenous field; the DOC/DON ratios in spring and autumn were higher than 

those in winter and lower than those in summer, and the DOM sources included watershed 

erosion, living sewage and endogenous field. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:In order to explore the spatial distribution and source of perfluorinated 

compounds (PFCs), eleven mixed urban soil samples were collected from 7 cities in Anhui 

Province in 2013. Fifteen individual PFCs were detected by ultra-performance liquid 

chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS), and principal components analysis 

was used to trace the different sources of PFCs in urban soil. The results showed that 

the total concentration of PFCs (&sum;PFCs) ranged from 1.15 to 5.98 ng&middot;g<sup>-

1</sup>dry weight (dw), with an average concentration of 2.69 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>. 

perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) with a concentration range of n.d. -3.56 

ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>and an average concentration of 0.96 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>was 

the dominant PFC contaminant, followed by perfluorooctane acid (PFOA) with a 

concentration range of n.d. -2.89 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>and an average concentration of 

0.64 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>. The highest &sum;PFCs concentration in all selected mixed 

urban soil samples was from Chuzhou City with the value of 5.89 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, 

followed by Jingxian County of Xuancheng City (4.04 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>). 

Interestingly, the PFOS concentration was as high as 3.56 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>in 

Jingxian County, accounting for 88.1% of the total PFCs concentration, which might be 

influenced by paper industry in this area. Comparing to other soil samples in China, 

&sum;PFCs concentration of urban soil from Anhui Province was at middle level. Over 60% 

of &sum;PFCs in urban soil of Anhui province could be attributed to the four principal 

components, represented by PFOA, perfluorobutane sulfonate, perfluorododecanoic acid, 

perfluorobutane acid and PFOS. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Effects of different vegetation types (Ulmus pumila, Larix gmelinii, Armeniaca 

vulgaris, Picea asperata and Robinia pseudoacacia) and reclamation years (15 and 20 

years) on soil bacterial community structure in reclaimed Antaibao opencast mine areas 

were investigated using polymerase chain reaction-denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis 

(PCR-DGGE) and clone sequencing. For 20-year reclaimed soils, the significantly highest 

and lowest bacterial diversity were found in U. pumila and A. vulgaris stand, 

respectively, whereas no significant differences were found between the other three 

vegetation types. Under 15-year plantations, soil bacterial diversity index of P. 

asperata was significantly higher than that of R. pseudoacacia. Soil bacterial diversity 

index significantly increased in R. pseudoacacia planted soils but decreased in P. 

asperata treatment with the increase of reclaimed years. No significant change of soil 

bacterial community structure was observed in the same reclamation years based on the 

similarity coefficient analysis, cluster analysis and principal component analysis (PCA). 

Pearson correlation analysis demonstrated that bacterial diversity index was 

significantly positively correlated with soil pH. Nitrospira, Sphingomonas, Arthrobacter, 

Brachybacterium, Rhizobium as well as Mesorhizobium, which play important roles in the 

nitrogen cycle, degradation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and other organic matter, 

were identified by clone sequencing of the DGGE bands. Our results indicated that U. 

pumila and P. asperata were conducive to the recovery of soil bacterial diversity. The 

most dominant bacterial community from reclaimed mine soil would be beneficial for 

restoring wasteland contaminated soil and improving soil fertility. &copy; 2017, Science

Abstract:The contamination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in surface dusts 

attracts great attentions due to their properties of threatening human health. Twenty-

nine surface dust samples were collected from driving-schools in a city of Henan. 

Concentrations of 16 priority PAHs were analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry 

(GC-MS). The health risks exposed to dust PAHs for three different scenarios (working for 

5 a, 10 a and 20 a in driving-school) were estimated by the health risk assessment model 

(ILCRs). Source identification was analyzed by diagnostic ratio, composition analysis, 

and principal component analysis. The results showed that concentrations of the &sum;PAHs 

in dusts ranged from 198.21 to 3 400.89 &mu;g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, with a mean of 

908.72 &mu;g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>. Among individual PAHs, the contents of naphthalene 

(Nap), phenanthrene (Phe), anthracene (Ant) and fluoranthene (Flu) were higher, and the 

content of dibenzo[a, h]anthracene (DBA) was the lowest. The dominant compounds were 2-3 

ring PAHs, which accounted for 55.79%, while the 4-6 ring PAHs accounted for 44.21%. The 

health risks exposed to PAHs in dust in three different scenarios were 

9.27&times;10<sup>-8</sup>, 1.85&times;10<sup>-7</sup>, and 3.71&times;10<sup>-

7</sup>respectively; only sample J11 was with potential health risk in scenario 3, and 

the other samples were all without risks. Average daily doses by dermal contact of dust 

particles for the PAHs was the main exposure way. PAHs in dusts of driving-school were 

mainly originated from the combustion of fossil fuels and mixture combustion. The major 

sources of dust PAHs in farmland area driving-schools were natural gas and diesel 

combustion (56.44%), coal combustion (26.55%), gasoline combustion and the leakage 

(17.01%); dust PAHs in industrial area driving-schools were from mixture combustion 

(76.26%), gasoline combustion and the leakage (22.85%), coking and coal combustion 

(0.89%); and dust PAHs in mixed area driving-schools were from coal combustion (45.57%), 

natural gas and diesel combustion (45.41%), gasoline combustion and the leakage (9.02%). 

The concentrations and health risks of heavy metals in dusts were closely related to the 

surroundings around driving-schools and the previous land use status. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:A pot experiment was conducted to study the effects of four modes of water 

managements on soil Eh values, bioavailability of soil Cd, migration and accumulation of 

Cd in rice. These four modes of water managements were moistening throughout the entire 

period of rice growth (M), moistening before filling stage and flooding after filling 

stage (M-F), flooding before filling stage and moistening after filling stage (F-M), and 

flooding throughout the entire period of rice growth (F). The results indicated that the 

exchangeable contents of Cd increased firstly and then declined with the soil Eh values 

changing from negative to positive. Compared with M, the other three modes (M-F, F-M, and 

F) significantly reduced the contents of Cd in all rice tissues, including roots, stems, 

husks and brown rice. Meanwhile, Cd contents in brown rice due to the treatments of M-F 

and F were 0.19 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>and 0.10 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, 

respectively. These Cd contents were lower than the limits of 0.2 mg&middot;kg<sup>-

1</sup>in national food safety standard (GB 2762-2012). Compared with M, the other three 

modes significantly decreased Cd accumulation amounts in the aboveground parts of rice 

and also decreased Cd translocation factors in rice. There were significant positive 

exponential relations between soil Eh values and Cd accumulation amounts in the 

aboveground parts of rice, Cd translocation factors in rice, or Cd contents in brown 

rice. The rice biomass due to M-F treatment reached the maximum among the four modes. It 

was worthy to be mentioned that although Weiyou 46 was considered a variety rice with 

high Cd accumulation, Cd content in rice brown of Weiyou 46 could be lower than 0.2 

mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>in the 5 mg&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>of Cd contaminated soil 

through proper water managements. In summary, M-F treatment ensured high rice yield with 

low Cd contents in brown rice and could be recommended as the irrigation mode in rice 

production. Simultaneously, maintaining soil Eh value between -160-130 mV was also 

important after the filling stage. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:In this study, we wanted to explore the impacts of N wet deposition on N export 

and trace the N source by isotopic method through monitoring N wet deposition in Loess 

Plateau's Dam Watershed in alternating wet and dry seasons, through measuring N wet 

deposition, rainfall-runoff and base flow process and analyzing concentration change of 

different forms of N. The results showed that there were 11 rainfall events in the 2015 

wet season, in which N wet deposition load reached 814.18 kg and N deposition flux was 

about 4.26 kg&middot;hm<sup>-2</sup>, while there were three rainfall events in the 2015 

dry season, in which N wet deposition load reached 155.58 kg and N deposition flux was 

0.83 kg&middot;hm<sup>-2</sup>, so it presented a great seasonal variability. By 

collecting the dynamic process of four rainfall events, we found that, different rainfall 

intensity had different influence on N export process. The contribution of N wet 

deposition of four rainfall events to N export in watershed was 16.94 kg. The ratio that 

N output load of rainfall and river in watershed N output load was 14.45%-64.84%, which 

showed that the contribution of rainfall to watershed N transport was big. The variation 

range of &delta;<sup>15</sup>N in Loess Plateau's Dam Watershed was big, which was -

0.844&permil;-12.791&permil;, and the &delta;<sup>18</sup>O was within the range of 8.166 

&permil;-15.115 &permil; in the dam watershed. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Soil active organic carbon is the most important carbon pool and a good 

indicator in ecosystem management due to its great significance in soil carbon cycling 

and soil quality. In order to investigate the effect of biochar(BC)addition on soil 

organic matter fractions, apple tree twigs were used to produce BC at 300, 400, 500 and 

600&#8451;, respectively. Elemental analysis and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) 

spectroscopy were used to determine the characteristics of BC. Four kinds of BC were 

added into soils at five application rates(0, 0.5%, 1%, 2% and 3%) and incubated at 

25&#8451; in lab for over 360 days. Soil organic carbon (SOC), microbial biomass carbon 

(MBC), water soluble organic carbon (WSOC) and readily oxidized organic carbon (ROC) were 

measured during the incubation. The mass fraction of carbon (C) in the generated BC 

ranged from 62.20%-80.01%, while hydrogen (H) ranged from 2.72%-5.18% and Oxygen (O) 

ranged from 15.98%-30.92%. The increasing temperature increased the mass fraction of C, 

while decreased the O and H mass content, as well as the ratio of H/C and O/C. The 

addition of BC significantly increased SOC, and the treatments amended with BC500 had the 

highest increments. Compared with the control treatment (CK), the addition of BC produced 

at temperatures below 400&#8451; increased the contents of MBC, WSOC and ROC during the 

incubation, at the end of the incubation, BC300 treatments significantly increased the 

contents by 38.25%, 82.09% and 63.53% (P&lt;0.05), respectively; BC400 treatments 

significantly increased the contents by 26.07%, 65.61% and 48.09% (P&lt;0.05), 

respectively; while lower contents of MBC, WSOC and ROC were found in the treatments 

amended with BC produced at temperatures above 400&#8451; after 40-60 d incubation. After 

360 d of incubation, the contents of MBC, WSOC and ROC were significantly decreased by 

0.27%,13.48% and 14.67% in BC500 treatments and 7.80%,14.66% and 15.79% in BC600 

treatments (except for the MBC in BC500 treatment) (P&lt;0.05). The relative contents of 

ROC ranged from 3.39% to 15.65%, BC application decreased the relative content of ROC, 

suggesting that the increase was in proportion to the stability of organic carbon in the 

soil. Considering the content and quality of SOC, when the BC products were applied to 

the Loutu soil, 500&#8451; was the optimal temperature for preparing apple-derived BC due 

to its significant increase of the soil organic carbon and a slight decrease of the 

relative content of soil active organic carbon. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Based on the MODIS-Aqua aerosol optical depth (AOD) products from 2003 to 2014, 

Nighttime Lights Time data from DMSP satellites and basic meteorological data, the AOD 

spatial distributions of interannual and seasonal variations over three northeastern 

provinces of China(Liaoning, Jilin, Heilongjiang) were analyzed. It was found that there 

was a northeast-southwest area of high annual average AOD composed of Dalian, Shenyang, 

Changchun, Harbin and other cities, the 12-year average AOD value was 0.4-0.8. The low 

AOD occurred in the eastern and northern areas of the three northeastern provinces of 

China, where the forest-covering rate was high, and the 12-year average AOD value was 

less than 0.3. The seasonal variations of annual average AOD showed an increasing trend 

from spring to summer, then decreased in autumn and increased again in winter. The 

interannual variations of AOD over three northeastern provinces of China showed a 

decreasing trend in most areas, but the increasing trend occurred in the northeast-

southwest region with the axis formed by Shenyang, Changchun and Harbin, revealing the 

polarization in recent 10 years over three northeastern provinces of China. In addition, 

spatial distribution of annual average AOD over three northeastern provinces of China in 

the years of strong and weak Western North Pacific Summer Monsoon was studied. Affected 

by the surface wind field, annual average AOD in weak monsoon years was higher than that 

in strong monsoon years. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:North China Plain is an important region of grain production. Soil fertility and 

grain production in this region are significantly influenced by the levels of soil carbon 

and nitrogen. In order to explore the effects of agricultural practices on the levels of 

soil carbon and nitrogen, a long-term field experiment was started in 1999 in Quzhou 

County, Hebei Province. Four treatments, including following nature (F), tillage without 

straw (N), no tillage with crushed straw incorporation (S), and tillage with crushed 

straw incorporation (TS), were chosen to collect soil samples at the layers of 0-20 cm 

and 20-40 cm in 2013. Soil organic carbon (SOC), soil inorganic carbon (SIC), total 

carbon (TC), total nitrogen (TN), &delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>SOC</inf>, 

&delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>SIC</inf>and &delta;<sup>15</sup>N were analyzed. The results 

indicated that compared with F, SOC stocks of N, S and TS decreased by 21.6%, 12.3% and 

3.4% in the 0-20 cm soil layer, but the changes of SIC stocks were not significant. In 

the 20-40 cm soil layer, the changes of the SOC stocks were not significant, but the SIC 

stocks increased by 4.1% (N), 7.3% (S) and 5.0% (TS) compared to F, respectively. Major 

contribution of SIC increase was the pedogenic inorganic carbonate (PIC), which increased 

by 97%-261% in the farmland soil. In the soil layer of 0-20 cm, the values of 

&delta;<sup>15</sup>N, &delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>SIC</inf>and 

&delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>SOC</inf>in the farmland treatments were higher than those of 

F, meanwhile, the values of &delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>SOC</inf>were significantly higher 

than that of F. In the soil layer of 20-40 cm, the values of &delta;<sup>15</sup>N and 

&delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>SIC</inf>were lower than those of F, but the value of 

&delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>SOC</inf>showed the opposite trend. In North China Plain, 

lithogenic inorganic carbonate (LIC) of farmland soil decomposed and PIC increased by the 

soil-crop system, which provided CO<inf>2</inf>for the formation of PIC, and straw 

returning was an effective agricultural practice to restore the soil carbon decreased by 

tillage. There should be more long-term monitoring and studies for the impacts of crop 

straw incorporation and tillage on SOC and SIC, especially for soil in deeper layers.

Abstract:To study the characteristics and sources of trace metals in 

PM<inf>2.5</inf>during wintertime in Beijing, PM<inf>2.5</inf>samples were collected from 

December 2014 to January 2015 by a middle volume sampler in the urban area of Beijing for 

30 consecutive days. The mass concentration of PM<inf>2.5</inf>was measured by filter 

membrane weighting method, and 16 kinds of trace metals were determined by inductively 

couple plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). In addition, the pollution characteristics and 

sources of trace metals were analyzed by enrichment factor (EF) method and factor 

analysis, respectively. The results showed that the concentrations of five elements (i.e. 

K, Ca, Fe, Al and Mg) accounted for 90.7% of the total metal elements. The concentrations 

of the metal elements changed obviously between day and night. Compared with daytime, 

crustal elements like Mg and Al decreased by more than 30% while anthropogenic elements 

like Cu and Pb increased by more than 40% in nighttime. Although the concentrations of 

metal elements increased by nearly one time in heavy pollution days compared with clean 

days, the mass percent of which in PM<inf>2.5</inf>decreased from 10.9% in clean days to 

4.6% in heavy pollution days. This result suggested the accumulation of metal elements in 

heavy pollution days had a minor contribution to the increased mass concentration of 

PM<inf>2.5</inf>. As the pollution episode progressed, anthropogenic elements (Cu, Zn, 

As, Se, Ag and Cd) increased faster than crustal elements (Al, Mg, Ca, Mn and Fe), which 

showed ratios ranging from 2.9 to 5.3 for anthropogenic elements and ratios ranging from 

1.2 to 1.8 for crustal elements, when compared between heavy pollution days and clean 

days. In addition, the EF value of anthropogenic elements was also increased in the 

pollution days, indicating the concentrations of these elements was further influenced by 

the anthropogenic sources. Factor analysis showed that metal elements of 

PM<inf>2.5</inf>during wintertime of Beijing were mainly from coal combustion and biomass 

burning, motor vehicle and industry emissions, and re-suspension of road dust, with the 

contributions of 34.2%, 25.5% and 17.1%, respectively. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:This study investigated the effects of a widely used herbicide 2,4-

dichlorophenoxyacetic acid on power generation, pollutants removal from microbial fuel 

cells (MFCs) and microbial community changes, and also explored anode pre-aeration for 

enhanced 2,4-D removal and power generation. The results showed that when 2,4-D was 

inputted to the anode chamber of MFCs which was previously enriched with acetate sodium 

as the fuel, the voltage output and power density declined and the internal resistance 

increased apparently. The maximum power density declined to 0.057 W&middot;m<sup>-

2</sup>in the presence of 300 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>2,4-D comparing to 0.151 

W&middot;m<sup>-2</sup>obtained with acetate alone (850 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>), and 

the internal resistance increased from 524 &Omega; to 1 230 &Omega; correspondingly. To 

accelerate 2,4-D removal rate and reduce its inhibition to anode exoelectrogens, 6h pre-

aeration was applied to the anode chamber. Fast removal of 2,4-D was achieved during 

aeration period and simultaneous high maximum voltage output (0.42-0.47 V) was obtained. 

Anode microbial community changed after 2,4-D addition and several 2,4-D degrading 

bacteria and 2,4-D tolerant exoelectrogen were enriched. MFCs could be used for 2,4-D 

removal and simultaneous power generation through anode pre-aeration. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:The evolution of sludge filteration dewaterability, floc structure and 

hydrolytic kinetics with calcium peroxide oxidation pre-treatment was investigated in 

this study. The effect of sludge characteristics with combined process of ferrous ion and 

calcium peroxide was deeply analyzed and the result suggested that the sludge dewatering 

performance was improved first and then worsened after CaO<inf>2</inf>addition. When the 

dosage was 20 mg&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, sludge reached its optimal dewaterability. At the 

same time, sludge was effectively dissolved and the floc structure became loose and 

broken with the increase of organic matters in the supernatant. Moreover, sludge 

solubilization process followed the pseudo-zero-order kinetic equation well and the 

reaction rate of sludge with CaO<inf>2</inf>treatment was 15.2 mg&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>&middot;h<sup>-1</sup>. In addition, sludge floc lysis was enhanced by the 

treatment of ferrous ion and calcium peroxide oxidation, whilst sludge dewaterability was 

improved due to the reconstruction of sludge floc structure by the iron ions produced. 

This study provided theoretical basis for application of calcium peroxide pre-treatment 

and its combining technique in sludge treatment. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Seasonal variations of 17 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and 15 

persistent organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) were analyzed during spring and summer in 

surface water from 12 sampling sites of Baiyangdian lake to elucidate their seasonal 

pollution characteristics and sources. The results showed that total concentrations of 

PAHs in surface water of Baiyangdian lake ranged from 35.38 to 88.06 ng&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>(46.57 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>in average) in spring and 25.64 to 301.41 

ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>(76.23 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>in average) in summer, 

respectively, and total concentrations of OCPs ranged from 0.69 to 4.50 

ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>(1.77 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>in average) in spring and 0.11 to 

3.20 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>(0.90 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>in average) in summer, 

respectively. Seasonal pollution characteristics of PAHs in surface water during two 

different seasons showed that the total concentration of PAHs was much higher in summer 

than in spring at three sampling sites of Baiyangdian lake including Qiantang, Guancheng 

and Anxin bridge, and the level of PAHs in spring was much higher than that in summer at 

the other nine sites. While seasonal pollution characteristics of OCPs showed that the 

total concentration of OCPs was much higher in summer than in spring in samples of 

Guancheng sites, and the level of OCPs in spring was slightly higher than that in summer 

in the rest of samples. From the perspective of spatial and temporal variations in the 

composition patterns of PAHs and OCPs in surface water of Baiyangdian lake, PAHs were 

predominated by 3-ring PAHs with 45.92% and 61.36% (52.60% in average) of total PAHs in 

spring, while in summer Nap was the chief component of 2-ring PAHs in three sampling 

sites including Qiantang, Guancheng and Anxin bridge with 84.91%, 91.04% and 78.10% of 

the total, respectively, and 3-ring PAHs were primary pollutants in the other nine sites 

with 37.14% to 53.90% (48.94% in average) of the total. Residues of HCHs and DDTs were 

detected in different degrees and &beta;-HCH was the main pollutant at all sampling sites 

with 29.94% and 100% (59.87% in average) of total HCHs in spring, while &beta;-HCH was 

the predominant compounds at five sampling sites with 57.55% and 80.23% (61.98% in 

average) in summer and &alpha;-HCHs and &delta;-HCH were abundant at other sampling 

sites. Source analysis based on isomer ratios indicated that the main source of PAHs in 

Baiyangdian lake originated from combustion sources, and additional sources for several 

sampling sites could be petroleum processes. Ratios of HCH isomers and DDT congeners 

confirmed that environmental historical residues and long range atmospheric transport 

were the major sources of OCPs contamination in the study area. Compared with the water 

quality standard of China and other countries or organizations, concentrations of PAHs 

and OCPs in surface water of Baiyangdian lake did not exceed the target values of the 

standard. However, the concentrations of &alpha;-HCH and p,p'-DDD in Anxin bridge and 

Quantou sites exceeded the limit of human health ambient water quality criteria developed 

by EPA, which reflected that &alpha;-HCH and p,p'-DDD would have a potential hazards risk 

to the residents from Baiyangdian district. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Myriophyllum aquaticum, which is an important plant for constructed wetlands, 

has powerful purification ability for wastewater, however, the relationship between 

nitrogen removal ability of Myriophyllum aquaticum and wastewater nitrogen concentrations 

is still unclear. In this study, pot culture experiment was conducted to investigate the 

effect of wastewater nitrogen levels on nitrogen removal ability of Myriophyllum 

aquaticum. 7 nitrogen levels were set up as following: 2, 5, 10, 20, 100, 200, 400 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. The results showed that when the wastewater nitrogen 

concentration was not higher than 20 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, Myriophyllum aquaticum 

with 20 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>of nitrogen concentration grew best in the first 3 weeks; 

the removal rates of total and ammonia nitrogen were nearly 100% after one week, while 

the nitrate nitrogen concentrations were very low and varied little; the nitrogen 

contents of Myriophyllum aquaticum had no significant change, the upper part nitrogen 

content was higher than the underneath, Myriophyllum aquaticum could also remove nitrogen 

from the sediment. When wastewater nitrogen concentrations were 100-400 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, Myriophyllum aquaticum with 200 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>of 

nitrogen concentration grew best from 4th to 5th week; the removal rates of total 

nitrogen were 76.5%, 71.5% and 48.1% in the three treatments, and the removal rates of 

ammonia nitrogen were 99.6%, 99.3% and 60.2% respectively, while the removal rates of 

nitrate nitrogen were all about 50% and there was no significant difference among 

treatments; the nitrogen contents of Myriophyllum aquaticum increased with nitrogen 

levels, but the difference between upper part and underneath was not remarkable, showing 

uniform distribution; nitrogen accumulations by Myriophyllum aquaticum and sediment 

accounted for 27.9%-48.4% and 12.2%-24.4% of total nitrogen loss in wastewater. 

Therefore, the nitrogen removal ability of Myriophyllum aquaticum should be inhibited by 

higher wastewater nitrogen level, the ammonia nitrogen removal rate was significantly 

higher than nitrate, the mechanism of Myriophyllum aquaticum nitrogen accumulation and 

distribution should also be affected by wastewater nitrogen level, and further research 

is needed. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Three Gorge Dam Reservoir (TGDR) is a new forming ecosystem and its sediments 

dynamics remains unknown. Investigation on the nitrification and denitrification dynamics 

of sediments of TGDR during water collection and release events-anti-seasonal actions-is 

critical for nitrogen management in TGDR. In this study, we sampled sediments in three 

locations (upstream, center, and downstream along water flow) of South River, located in 

a typical small tributary, Nanhe, in TGDR during 2015 water collection and release events 

to characterize its physiochemical property and determine its nitrification and 

denitrification rates using acetylene inhabitation method. The results showed that the 

concentrations of physiochemical parameters of sediments (total carbon, total nitrogen, 

nitrate, and ammonia) were significantly higher (P&lt;0.05) in water collection event 

than those in water release event, suggesting there were external materials (e.g., soil) 

entering into TGDR. Furthermore, the nitrification rate of sediments in water collection 

event [194.06 &mu;mol&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;h)<sup>-1</sup>] was significantly 

higher than that in water release event [16.52 &mu;mol&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;h)

<sup>-1</sup>]. Sediments nitrification rate was positively correlated to the 

physiochemical parameters. In contract, the denitrification rate of sediments was higher 

in water release event [647.20 &mu;mol&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;h)<sup>-1</sup>] than 

that in water collection event [24.04 &mu;mol&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;h)<sup>-

1</sup>). Accordingly, the denitrification rate of sediments was negatively correlated to 

the physiochemical parameters. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:To investigate the distribution characteristics and the human health risks of 

heavy metals in surface water samples, 30 samples were collected around electroplating 

factories of Machong, Shatian, Humen, Changan and Dalingshan towns in Dongguan city, 8 

heavy metals (As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Hg, Ni, Pb and Zn) contents were measured and analyzed by 

using multivariate statistical analysis method and human health risk assessment model. 

The results showed that the maximum concentrations of Cr, Pb and the average 

concentration of Hg exceeded Environmental Quality Standards for Surface Water (GB 3838-

2002, Grade III), the concentrations of Cr, Cu, Hg, Ni, Zn and Pb during rainy season 

were all higher than that those during dry season. Multivariate statistical analysis 

indicated that Cd, Cr, Cu, Ni and Zn mainly originated from the contaminated 

electroplating factories, Pb and Hg were mainly affected by the traffic sources, and As 

was significantly correlated with natural sources. Health risk assessment result of 

surface water indicated that heavy metal pollution would lead to high health risks 

especially for children, and the health risks of heavy metals through drinking pathway 

were 2-3 orders of magnitude higher than the values caused by dermal contact pathway. 

Moreover, carcinogenic risks caused by Cr and As were higher than the maximum allowance 

levels (5&times;10<sup>-5</sup>a<sup>-1</sup>), and non-carcinogenic risks of the heavy 

metals (10<sup>-10</sup>-10<sup>-7</sup>a<sup>-1</sup>) decreased in the order of 

Pb&gt;Ni&gt;Cu&gt;Hg&gt;Zn, which were 4-5 orders of magnitude lower than the maximum 

allowance levels. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:The feasibility of a new sludge treatment technology of earthworm constructed 

wetlands was tested by adding earthworm into the traditional sludge dying reed beds. The 

dewatering and stabilization effects of the upper layer sludge were tested under 

different sludge loading rates of 48, 65, 80 kg&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;a)<sup>-

1</sup>, different earthworm stocking densities of 0, 0.43, 0.54, 0.65 kg&middot;m<sup>-

2</sup>and different sludge loading frequencies. The results indicated that it was 

feasible to provide a shelter for earthworm during the loading period by setting a damper 

with a buried depth of 10 mm. The addition of earthworm could effectively improve the 

dewatering and stabilization effects of earthworm constructed wetlands, by lowering the 

DHA and decreasing the moisture content and VS of sludge by 15% and 10% respectively. The 

stabilization effects of earthworm constructed wetlands reached the best under the 

stocking density of 0.65 kg&middot;m<sup>-2</sup>. With the increase of sludge loading 

rate and decrease of loading frequency, the running efficiency of earthworm constructed 

wetlands would be worse. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

technology, has good prospects for applications. However, ANAMMOX bacteria grow slowly 

and are hardly accumulated in bioreactors. In this study, a UASB reactor inoculated with 

sludge from landfill leachate treatment plant was used for the start-up of ANAMMOX 

process. Besides, exogenous quorum sensing signals (DSF and AHL) were added to improve 

the adhesion of ANAMMOX sludge. The results showed that the UASB successfully started the 

ANAMMOX process within 150 days of operation. The total nitrogen removal rate reached 80% 

and the proportion of ANAMMOX bacteria rose to 20%. There was a low concentration of AHLs 

signal molecules in the ANAMMOX sludge. If the &beta;-position substituent group of AHL 

added was a carbonyl group (including 3-oxo-C<inf>6</inf>-HSL, 3-oxo-C<inf>8</inf>-HSL, 

3-oxo-C<inf>10</inf>-HSL and 3-oxo-C<inf>12</inf>-HSL), the adhesion growth ability of 

the ANAMMOX sludge could be improved. In the case of dosing with AHL molecules without 

&beta;-position substituent groups, only C<inf>6</inf>-HSL and C<inf>12</inf>-HSL could 

promote the adhesion of ANAMMOX sludge. The additions of C<inf>8</inf>-HSL, 

C<inf>10</inf>-HSL and DSF all had negative effects on the adhesion of ANAMMOX sludge.

Abstract:In order to study the quick start-up process of anaerobic ammonium oxidation 

(ANAMMOX), two types of reactors with different hydraclic flow state inoculated with 

aerobic nitrifying sludge were investigated, the membrane bioreactor (MBR) and anaerobic 

baffled reactor (ABR), respectively. The result showed that both reactors successfully 

started up ANAMMOX process. The start-up period of the MBR (90 d) was 20% shorter than 

the ABR (111 d). During the stable operation, the average nitrogen (NH<inf>4</inf><sup>

+</sup>-N+NO<inf>2</inf><sup>-</sup>-N) removal capacity of 0.098 kg&middot;

(m<sup>3</sup>&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>in the MBR was also higher than that of 0.089 

kg&middot;(m<sup>3</sup>&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>in the ABR. In addition, the differences 

of sludge morphology were obvious in the two reactors; flocculent sludge was developed in 

the MBR while ANAMMOX granular sludge was mainly formed in the first compartment of the 

ABR. Moreover, the quantitative relationship analysis between NH<inf>4</inf><sup>

+</sup>-N, NO<inf>2</inf><sup>-</sup>-N and NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N showed that the 

MBR system contained more kinds of bacteria with nitrogen removal function, compared to 

the ABR, and it was therefore more conducive to the removal of nitrogen. MBR exhibited a 

more excellent performance for ANAMMOX start-up. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:The purpose of this study was to investigate the characteristics and source 

apportionment of carbonaceous aerosols in PM<inf>10</inf>for the daytime and nighttime 

during spring and summer over Lanzhou. The samples were collected from 1 April 2015 to 30 

August 2015, daytime samples were collected during 08:00 to 20:00 and nighttime samples 

during 20:00 to 08:00 on the next day, and organic carbon (OC) and elemental carbon (EC) 

concentrations were measured. The results showed that PM<inf>10</inf>, OC and EC 

concentrations were (136.0&plusmn;84.3), (12.4&plusmn;3.2), (2.3&plusmn;0.7) 

&mu;g&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>during the daytime, and (196.0&plusmn;109.2), 

(16.0&plusmn;5.3), (5.0&plusmn;2.1) &mu;g&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>during the nighttime. The 

mass concentrations of PM<inf>10</inf>, OC and EC in the nighttime were higher than those 

during the daytime. The ratios of secondary organic carbon to total organic carbon were 

higher in the daytime than nighttime, suggesting that the secondary organic carbon 

pollution was more serious in the daytime. In sand-dust weather, the concentrations of 

PM<inf>10</inf>and OC were higher than those in non-dust weather, while the EC 

concentration was close to that in non-dust weather. Secondary organic carbon and total 

carbon aerosols were higher in sand-dust weather, but the contribution to the 

PM<inf>10</inf>was relatively low. In addition, principal component analysis on the eight 

carbon fractions of non-dust weather indicated that coal combustion, vehicle exhaust and 

biomass burning were the major sources for carbonaceous aerosol during the daytime, while 

coal combustion, dust, diesel exhaust and biomass burning played important roles in the 

nighttime. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Forms distribution and ecotoxicity of sulfonamides in root-soil interface of 

maize were studied by chemical analysis and luminescent bacteria toxicity assay. The 

results indicated that the water soluble residues were the main form in rhizosperic 

soils, and the organic solvent extractable residues were the main form in far-rhizosperic 

soils. The three forms of sulfonamides showed relatively lower toxicity to luminescent 

bacteria with the relative inhibition rates less than 30%. The toxicity of water soluble 

residues was lower than that of the organic solvent extractable residues, and the bound 

residues showed the lowest toxicity to luminescent bacteria. The contents and relative 

inhibition rates of water soluble residues in rhizosperic soils were higher than those in 

far-rhizosperic soils, while the contents and relative inhibition rates of organic 

solvent extractable and bound residues in rhizosperic soils were lower than those in 

far-rhizosperic soils. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Coastal organic pollution has become a serious problem, thus it is imperative to 

assess the potential effects on the marine environment. The microbes are generally the 

first responders to environmental perturbation, which may serve as biological indicators 

for pollution levels. In this study, we collected surface seawater samples from Sanmen 

Bay and adjacent Yushan Reserve. Using an Illumina sequencing based analysis of bacterial 

16S rRNA gene, we explored the effect of organic pollution on the bacterioplankton 

community compositions (BCCs). The results showed that the organic pollution (A) was 

4.57&plusmn;2.41 at Sanmen Bay, which was significantly higher (P&lt;0.001) than that in 

Yushan Reserve (0.43&plusmn;0.74). The bacterial diversity and community compositions 

differed significantly between the two locations. Specifically, the relative abundance of 

Actinobacteria, &alpha;-Proteobacteria, &beta;-Proteobacteria, SAR406 in Sanmen Bay was 

significantly higher than that in Yushan Reserve, while Bacteroidetes, Cyanobacteria, 

Planctomycetes exhibited an opposite change pattern. A multivariate regression tree 

analysis showed that the bacterial diversity was primarily affected by water pH, organic 

pollution and chlorophyll a levels, which respectively explained 27.7%, 15.6% and 6.7% 

variance in bacterial diversity. A redundancy analysis (RDA) revealed that the 

bacterioplankton community was significantly controlled by pH, salinity and organic 

pollution, which cumulatively explained 14.8% of the variation in BCCs. In addition, the 

geographic distance was significantly (P&lt;0.001) correlated with BCCs, accounting for 

4.42% variance, which suggested that the spatial distribution of bacterioplankton 

community was non-random. Moreover, this study screened 23 sensitive bacterial families, 

whose relative abundances were significantly associated the organic pollution. For a 

given bacterial family, the change pattern of relative abundance was consistent with its 

known function, thus holding the potential for indicating organic pollution levels. To 

conclude, this study showed that the increasing coastal organic pollution had altered 

BCCs, and enriched the relative abundances of potential pathogens. Furthermore, the 

sensitive bio-indicators were screened for evaluating the increasing organic pollution 

level. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:A large number of researches showed that the N<inf>2</inf>O negative emissions 

from flooding paddy fields, peatlands and other wetlands ecosystem were frequent and 

considerable, which is of great significance on alleviating the greenhouse gas effect. 

However, there are few reports about the transformation and microbial mechanism of 

N<inf>2</inf>O between atmosphere and paddy soil. The slurry of surface paddy soil (0-5 

cm) was incubated in laboratory conditions, and the effect of enhanced N<inf>2</inf>O 

concentrations in headspace on the N<inf>2</inf>O consumption capacity of submerged paddy 

soil and the response of nosZ gene abundance were explored. The results showed that, 

paddy soil under flooding and anaerobic conditions harbored very strong potential of 

N<inf>2</inf>O reduction along with a relatively high nosZ gene abundance 

(10<sup>8</sup>copies&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>dry soil at DNA level). Regression analysis 

presented the N<inf>2</inf>O concentrations in headspace were positively correlated 

(r<sup>2</sup>=1, P&lt;0.001) to the N<inf>2</inf>O consumption rates of paddy soil 

slurry, indicating the high N<inf>2</inf>O concentration could stimulate the 

N<inf>2</inf>O consumption power, to a very high rate of 4 567.99 &mu;g&middot;

(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;h)<sup>-1</sup>. Meanwhile, there were no significant differences 

in the high abundance of nosZ gene among N<inf>2</inf>O treatments, demonstrating the 

nosZ gene abundance at DNA level might not be the main controller of N<inf>2</inf>O 

consumption ability in submerged paddy soil and further study on the key microbial factor 

is needed. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:According to the data collected from the five monitoring sites in front of the 

dam in Thousand-island Lake in September 2015, the vertical distribution characteristics 

of dissolved oxygen (DO), water temperature, pH, turbidity, conductivity and 

phytoplankton were analyzed. The influencing factors of special stratification of DO and 

vertical distribution of phytoplankton were also discussed. The results showed that: (1) 

The vertical distribution of DO presented &ldquo;the surface is higher than the 

underlying&rdquo; mode. DO ranged from 1.95 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to 8.25 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>and the average concentration was 5.10 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. 

Low-oxygen zones appeared between 12 m and 20 m and the minimum concentration was 1.95 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>at 17 m. The concentration of DO maintained at a high level 

between 0 m and 12 m and the vertical variance was small. Sudden drop of DO occurred 

between 12 m and 20 m and there was an anoxic zone (&lt;4.0 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>). 

The concentration of DO returned to normal level between 20 m and 38 m. Then it reduced 

under 38m as the water depth increased. The vertical distribution of pH showed the same 

trend with that of DO and their sudden change regions appeared in the same zone. (2) 

Vertical phytoplankton biomass displayed significant difference. The phytoplankton 

biomass of S1, S2 and S3 presented: mid-layer&gt;surface&gt;bottom. But S4, S5 presented: 

bottom&gt;surface&gt;mid-layer. In addition, the depth between 20 m and 30 m was the best 

for the growth of phytoplankton. (3) The correlation analysis showed that DO and water 

temperature in the thermocline were significantly correlative. The range and degree of 

low-oxygen zones in Thousand-island Lake was determined by physical processes like 

thermal stratification of water and direct or indirect effects of the plankton. 

Phytoplankton and DO, pH showed significant negative correlation. The phytoplankton was 

mainly influenced by turbulent mixing and DO stratification in the surface layer while it 

was mainly influenced by light intensity at the bottom. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:Hanfeng Pre-reservoir is very rare in the world which is specially designed to 

reduce the impact of Fluctuating Zone, and it is formed in Hanfeng Lake of Three Gorges 

reservoir. The Hanfeng Pre-reservoir has many special hydrological characteristics and 

ecological environment features based on its unique &ldquo;pre-reservoir&rdquo; control 

mode, the wide seasonal wetland of Fluctuating Zone, the huge life pollution and 

agricultural pollution, and the pressure of huge city and excessive population. HanFeng 

Lake has a variety of morphological features such as lakes, rivers, and other backwater 

bay, for the effect of water level regulation in Three Gorges, since the successful 

commissioning of the Hanfeng Lake pre-dam system in 2015. The change of Hanfeng Lake 

hydrology and water quality during the commissioning was divided into four periods by 

combining Hydrological and Morphological Variation characteristics with Water quality 

indicators time clustering analysis: May to August as T1 (river period); January, March 

and November to December as T2 (lake period); February, April and September as T3 (water 

level fluctuation period); October as T4 (algal blooms period) in 2015. Principal 

component analysis and stepwise regression analysis showed that Eutrophication of Hanfeng 

Lake was dominated by different dominant components at different times and the water 

quality index factor which has a significant effect on the Chl-a was also different. 

Cumulative contribution rates of principal components were 82.93%, 77.61%, 78.32%, 88.40% 

for each period, respectively. The main water quality indicators of T1 (river period) 

were DP, TP, SD, pH and the significant influencing index of Chl-a was PC<inf>2</inf>, so 

Chl-a was mainly affected by water nitrogen content. The main water quality indicators of 

T2 (lake period) were TN, DN, DP, TP, NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N and the significant 

influencing index of Chl-a was PC<inf>1</inf>, so Chl-a was mainly affected by water 

eutrophication including nitrogen and phosphorus nutrient status. The main water quality 

indicators of T3 (water level fluctuation period) were SD, NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N, 

DN, T and the significant influencing index of Chl-a was PC<inf>3</inf>. so Chl-a was 

mainly affected by water level fluctuation. The main water quality indicators of T4 

(algal blooms period) were TN, DN, DO, NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N, pH, permanganate 

index, H, NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N and the significant influencing index of Chl-a was 

PC<inf>3</inf>. so Chl-a was mainly affected by flow rate and hydrodynamic conditions. As 

mentioned in the review, the frequent and significant water level changes during the 

commissioning of Hanfeng Lake were the important factors influencing the change of 

hydrological and water quality characteristics. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are ubiquitous environmental 

contaminants that originate mainly from anthropogenic sources. PAHs have elicited much 

concern because they exhibit strong toxic, carcinogenic, and mutagenic properties. 

Agricultural soil is at risk of PAH contamination mainly caused by atmospheric 

depositions, wastewater irrigation, or organic substances and biowaste applied as 

fertilizers. The surface agricultural soils were collected from Shandong in July 2015, 

and measured for 16 US EPA priority PAHs using high performance liquid chromatography 

with UV and fluorescence detector. The content and composition of PAHs were analyzed. The 

differences of PAHs between soils from the field for growing crops and from vegetable 

greenhouses, and between soils from point sources and from non-point sources were 

compared. The sources of PAHs were determined with methods of ratio between PAHs and 

positive matrix factorization (PMF), and the risks of PAHs were assessed. The results 

showed that the total content of 16 PAHs (&sum;16PAHs) ranged from 111.5 

ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>to 2 744.1 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, with the mean of 556.3 

ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>. The content of 3-ring PAHs was relatively high, with the mean 

of 201.5 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>; while the contents of 2-ring and 6-ring PAHs were 

relatively low, with the mean of 39.3 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>and 43.4 ng&middot;g<sup>-

1</sup>, respectively. According to the contamination classification in Poland, 71% of 

the samples in Shangdong were weakly contaminated. Compared with other areas in China, 

the content of PAHs in the agricultural soils in Shandong was in the middle range. 

Acenaphthene, fluorine, and fluoranthene were the major PAH compounds, accounting for 

more than 10% of the total PAHs; while the contribution of indeno (1,2,3-cd) pyrene was 

low. The content of &sum;16PAHs and contribution of 7 carcinogenic PAHs were 

significantly higher in soils polluted by point sources than those in soils from non-

point sources. Moreover, the contribution of PAHs with 2-3 rings was significantly higher 

in soils from non-point sources, while the contribution of PAHs with 4-6 rings was 

significantly higher in soils polluted by point sources. There was no significant 

difference in soils from vegetable greenhouses and from adjacent field soils, and the 

contribution of PAHs with 3-4 rings was high. The PAH isomer pair ratios of Ant/(Ant

+Phe), Flu/(Flu+Pyr), BaA/(BaA+Chr), and InP/(InP+BP) were utilized as molecular indices 

to elucidate the possible PAH sources, and the results suggested that the PAHs in the 

soils were mainly from combustion. To quantitatively assess the contribution of various 

sources to PAH contamination, PMF was used to analyze the sources. The sources of PAHs 

were combustion of coal biomass, oil combustion from traffic, coking, and petroleum 

pollution, with contribution of 42.7%, 19.3%, 22.8% and 15.2%, respectively. Toxic 

equivalency factors were used to evaluate PAH contamination in the soils, and the 

carcinogenicity of other PAHs relative to BaP was quantified to estimate the BaP-

equivalent concentration (TEQ<inf>BaP</inf>). The TEQ<inf>BaP</inf>of 16 PAHs 

(&sum;16TEQ<inf>Bap</inf>) in soils from non-point sources and vegetable greenhouses was 

31.69 and 44.47 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, respectively, which were below the safe value 

in Canadian soil quality guidelines. However, the &sum;16TEQ<inf>Bap</inf>in some field 

soils from point sources exceeded the safe value, indicating that there were potential 

risks in the soils from point sources in Shandong. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:Greenhouse gas emission from aquatic ecosystem will affect climate change on the 

regional and global scale. So large river interception project which affects the carbon 

cycle model and greenhouse gas emission from aquatic ecosystem has provoked more and more 

attentions in recent years. In order to understand and evaluate the effects of typical 

hydropower project construction on the aquatic ecosystem and carbon cycle, the Geheyan 

Reservoir, a typical river interception project, was selected as a typical case in this 

paper for measuring carbon dioxide fluxes from interface between water and atmosphere 

from March, 2015 to February, 2016. The integration of the online gas analyzer and 

floating box was used to obtain carbon dioxide fluxes from interface between water and 

atmosphere. Data was obtained over the before dam, upstream, tributary, drawdown area and 

bay area respectively for understanding the spatial Heterogeneity of carbon dioxide 

fluxes. Data analysis showed that yearly mean fluxes of carbon dioxide from the Geheyan 

Reservoir was (55.6918&plusmn;66.3329) mg&middot;(m<sup>2</sup>&middot;h)<sup>-

1</sup>during measurement, which indicated that the temporal distribution was higher in 

winter and lower in other seasons and the spatial variation was higher in typical bay and 

lower before dam as well as drawdown zone over the reservoir. Moreover, the seasonal 

variation of carbon dioxide fluxes from the interface between water and atmosphere was 

very stable at Yuxiakou measurement points as a typical background area of the reservoir, 

which was unexpectedly higher than those before dam and drawdown zone in the most months 

during measurement. The results from data analysis also indicated that the spatial and 

temporal variation of carbon dioxide fluxes from the Geheyan Reservoir was affected by 

water quality parameters such as dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll, pH, water temperature and 

conductivity and carbon in water, but the relationship between carbon dioxide fluxes and 

other parameter was very different within each season and impound period. So the results 

above will provide more supports for understanding the import pathway and transfer of 

aquatic carbon cycle caused by large river interception project in China. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:In recent years, more and more public attention has been paid to the problem of 

air pollution during the heating period in North China. This article took a heavy 

pollution process of Shijiazhuang district from Nov. 24th to Dec. 4th in 2015 as an 

example, and analyzed comprehensively the source apportionment in different periods, size 

distribution of the PM<inf>2.5</inf>from each source in different periods, the 

characteristics of mass spectra of the main emission sources and the meteorological 

conditions with the method of real-time online source analysis. It turned out: the main 

sources of pollutants were coal combustions, industrial discharges, vehicle exhausts and 

secondary inorganic reactions. With the help of meteorological condition of low pressure 

and low wind speed, the PM<inf>2.5</inf>mainly produced by coal combustions and 

industrial discharges accumulated heavily and went through the second stage conversion, 

leading to this heavy air pollution. The main particulate matters from coal combustions 

were the mixed carbons; the main particulate matters from industrial discharges were 

metals; the main particulate matters from vehicle exhausts were elemental carbon and 

manganese metal; the main particulate matters from pure secondary inorganic sources were 

secondary inorganic ions; the main particulate matters from dust pollution were aluminum, 

calcium, iron and silicate minerals; the main particulate matters from biomass fuel 

combustions were levoglucosan; the feature signal from restaurant discharges was organic 

acid. Different from the distribution before and after the heavy pollution period, the 

particulate matters from the 8 pollution sources presented even distribution during the 

heavy pollution period. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Speciation characteristics of fifteen heavy metals in seventeen surface 

sediments from Jiulong River was analyzed using the modified BCR protocol and dilute 

HNO<inf>3</inf>method, respectively. The results of the modified BCR protocol showed that 

most of the elements (Fe, Ni, V, Tl, Ba, Sb, Ga, Cr and Sr) existed mainly in residual 

fractions, and extractable fraction was dominant for Mn (83.8%), followed by Cd, Pb, Zn, 

Co and Cu (80.0%, 75.5%, 74.3%, 70.8% and 57.7%). The results of dilute 

HNO<inf>3</inf>method showed that the proportions of the dilute HNO<inf>3</inf>-

extractable fractions of Pb, Mn, Cd, Co, Zn and Cu were higher (70.4%, 65.4%, 58.7%, 

48.4%, 44.5% and 45.5%). The assessment results of RSP (ratio of secondary phase to 

primary phase) indicated that Pb, Mn, Cd, Co, Zn and Cu in surface sediments of Jiulong 

River had higher ecological risks. Both extraction methods had merits and demerits 

respectively. In general, the dilute HNO<inf>3</inf>method is enough to analyze the 

bioavailability and ecological risk of heavy metals in sediments. &copy; 2017, Science

Abstract:Urban traffic is an important source of greenhouse gases such as CH<inf>4</inf>. 

The observations on CH<inf>4</inf>are the basis for quantitative analysis of urban carbon 

emissions. Taken into consideration the weekly and daily changing characteristics of 

urban traffic, we conducted experiments to analyze the features of traffic 

CH<inf>4</inf>emission and its influential factors. The experiments were conducted on 3 

main roads in Nanjing on Oct. 17, 18, 20, 23, 2014 with 5 periods of observation per day, 

and in Nanjing Yangtze River tunnel in the morning and at night of Sep.11 2014. The 

results showed that: (1)The average concentration of CH<inf>4</inf>on the urban main road 

of Nanjing city was greater than that of the background atmosphere. Affected by traffic 

conditions, the spatial difference of &Delta;CH<inf>4</inf>concentration was significant 

on three typical main roads. &Delta;CH<inf>4</inf>concentration's diurnal variation 

showed inverted &ldquo;W&rdquo; type, and its peak appeared in the morning and evening 

rush hours. (2) Due to the &ldquo;piston wind&rdquo; in the tunnel, the 

CH<inf>4</inf>concentration in Nanjing Yangtze River tunnel gradually increased from the 

inlet to the outlet and the difference of concentration between the inlet and the outlet 

was 0.21&times;10<sup>-6</sup>-0.38&times;10<sup>-6</sup>. (3)There was a good linear 

correlation between CH<inf>4</inf>concentration and CO<inf>2</inf>concentration. The 

atmospheric &Delta;CH<inf>4</inf>&#8758;&Delta;CO<inf>2</inf>value of urban main road in 

Nanjing was 0.009 1 and the atmospheric 

&Delta;CH<inf>4</inf>&#8758;&Delta;CO<inf>2</inf>value of Nanjing Yangtze River Tunnel 

was 0.000 47-0.001 4. (4)Traffic volume and the proportion of natural gas vehicles were 

the main factors influencing atmospheric &Delta;CH<inf>4</inf>concentration and 

&Delta;CH<inf>4</inf>&#8758;&Delta;CO<inf>2</inf>. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:The concentration level of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAHs) in topsoil 

from Shenfu New City in urbanization was studied. 54 topsoil samples were collected from 

Shenfu New City and 4 different land uses (urban land, rural land, forest land, 

cultivated land) were included. The concentration of PAHs in different land uses was 

analyzed, the sources of soil PAHs were analyzed by using diagnostic ratios and principal 

component analysis, and the ecological risks were calculated using toxic equivalency 

concentrations of BaP and the incremental lifetime cancer risk(ILCR)model. Results 

indicated that the concentrations of &sum;PAHs in urban land, cultivated land, rural land 

and forest land were in the range of 184-18 276, 230-14 102, 151-3 205, 303-2 980 

&mu;g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. Four land uses had similar sources, the main 

sources were coal combustion and traffic emission. According to the calculation of 

ecological risks, there were potential health risks for residents in Shenfu New City, 

especially urban land, meanwhile, residents were easily exposed to soil PAHs through 

dermal contact. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:High free ammonia nitrogen (FAN) is regarded as a main factor that inhibits 

biogas production in high solid anaerobic digestion systems with dewatered sludge. Two 

mesophilic semi-continuous anaerobic digesters fed with dewatered sludge (input total 

solids=15%) were operated and their performance under different FAN concentrations by two 

regulation methods including pH reduction and total ammonia nitrogen (TAN) promotion were 

investigated. Results showed that when FAN was elevated from (400&plusmn;174) 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to (526&plusmn;25) mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>with the increase of 

TAN, the daily biogas yield declined from (11.9&plusmn;0.3) L&middot;d<sup>-1</sup>to 

(10.3&plusmn;0.2) L&middot;d<sup>-1</sup>. Meanwhile, volatile solids (VS) reduction rate 

decreased by 33.7%. When FAN dropped from (330&plusmn;99) mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to 

(47&plusmn;13) mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>due to pH reduction, daily biogas yield declined 

from (14.4&plusmn;1.1) L&middot;d<sup>-1</sup>to (10.8&plusmn;0.3) L&middot;d<sup>-

1</sup>and VS reduction rate decreased by 26.9%. The system performance was not enhanced 

with the reduction of FAN. With the stop of pH regulation, FAN gradually raised again to 

300 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>and digester performance recovered to the same as the 

situation before regulation. The result suggested that inhibition occurred during pH 

reduction. By 16S rRNA pyrosequencing analysis on bacterial and archaeal diversity and 

quantitative PCR analysis aiming at methanogens, it was found that bacterial community 

structure both changed obviously with obvious performance decline in the two digesters. 

Excessive FAN (&gt;500 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>) could change the main bacteria species 

which degrade protein from Tepidimicrobium and Proteiniborus to Anaerobranca. On the 

other hand, some carbohydrate and protein degrading bacteria were also inhibited by pH 

reduction for FAN control, leading to the decline of hydrolysis rates of organic matters. 

As a result, the shortage of substrate supply for the methanogens weakened the biogas 

production of the digestion system. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:A bacterium strain LW26 which could utilize chlorobenzene (CB) as sole carbon 

and energy source was isolated from a biotrickling filter reactor treating CB-

contaminated off-gas. Based on its morphological and physiological characteristics, as 

well as the analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequence and Biolog test, the strain LW26 was 

identified as Delftia tsuruhatensis. To our best knowledge, it is the first time that the 

strain Delftia tsuruhatensis was applied for CB purification. In this study, the effects 

of temperature, pH, initial CB concentration and Cl<sup>-</sup>concentration on the 

biodegradation were investigated. The results showed that the optimal temperature and pH 

for CB biodegradation were 25&#8451; and 7.0, respectively; the maximum CB tolerated 

concentration for LW26 was as high as 500 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>; when the 

concentration of Cl<sup>-</sup>was above 0.14 mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, the CB 

degradation was significantly restrained. The degrading process of the strain LW26 

followed the Haldane kinetic model and the maximum specific growth rate and the maximum 

specific degradation rate were 0.42 h<sup>-1</sup>and 2.53 h<sup>-1</sup>, 

respectively.GC-MS analysis of the metabolites revealed that CB was firstly converted to 

o-chlorophenol by strain LW26. Combined with the activity of catechol dioxygenase, it can 

be speculated that CB was finally mineralized to CO<inf>2</inf>, or converted to cell 

biomass after processes of ortho cleavage, dechlorination and oxidation. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:Stable carbon isotope of dissolved inorganic carbon 

(&delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>DIC</inf>), which is mainly constituted by 

HCO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>in karst water, is widely used to trace the different sources 

and influential factors of dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC). In order to understand the 

distribution of DIC and &delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>DIC</inf>in subtropical karst area, 

this paper researched the water chemistry and &delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>DIC</inf>in a 

karst surface stream in detail, which is fed by Guancun subterranean stream in Liuzhou 

City, Guangxi Province, in the southwest of China. The results showed that the contents 

of DIC in subterranean stream outlet (G1 site) ranged from 4.60 to 4.90 

mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>with an average of 4.73 mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>in dry 

season, and from 2.80 to 4.70 mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>with an average of 4.23 

mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>in rainy season. The contents of DIC in 1.35 km downstream site 

(G2 site) ranged from 4.30 to 4.90 mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>with an average of 4.56 

mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>in dry season, and from 3.00 to 4.70 mmol&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>with an average of 4.20 mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>in rainy season. The 

&delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>DIC</inf>of subterranean stream outlet (G1 site) varied from -

12.8&permil; to -11.53&permil; with an average of -12.22&permil; in dry season, and from 

-13.12&permil; to -11.01&permil; with an average of -12.28&permil; in rainy season. The 

&delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>DIC</inf>of stream downstream site (G2 site) ranged from -

11.71&permil; to -9.55&permil; with an average of -10.73&permil; in dry season, and 

ranged from -12.18&permil; to -9.85&permil; with an average of -11.10&permil; in rainy 

season. The contents of DIC of G1 site were higher than those of G2 site. The DIC 

contents in dry season in both G1 and G2 site were higher than those in rainy season. The 

values of &delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>DIC</inf>of G1 and G2 site in dry season were more 

positive than those in rainy season. The &delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>DIC</inf>value of G1 

site was more negative than that of G2 site. The main sources of DIC in underground river 

and surface stream were soil CO<inf>2</inf>and carbonate dissolution. However, the 

differences of DIC and &delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>DIC</inf>between G1 and G2 site showed 

that CO<inf>2</inf>degassing and photosynthesis of aquatic plants had significant 

influence on water DIC and &delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>DIC</inf>value. This study is 

helpful to understand the dynamic change and distribution of DIC and 

&delta;<sup>13</sup>C<inf>DIC</inf>in karst surface stream. &copy; 2017, Science Press.

Abstract:As one of the main atmospheric pollutants over surface layer, researches on the 

increasing surface ozone concentration and its impact on main crops have become the focus 

of every government and the public. In this paper, based on the observations in Nanjing 

using the main local cultivars in China's major winter wheat producing areas, it was 

expected to obtain the data including ozone concentration, meteorological data and 

stomatal conductance by continuous observation. Stomatal conductance model was used and 

parameterized, combined with flux model, we analyzed the characteristics of stomatal flux 

in winter wheat under ozone pollution. At the same time, the stomatal conductance and 

stomatal ozone absorption flux of winter wheat were simulated in Jiangsu Province. The 

main results were as follows: Elevated ozone concentration could reduce stomatal 

conductance of winter wheat leaf and stomatal conductance decreased with the increase of 

ozone concentration. According to the observational data through the experiment, based on 

the boundary line technology, stomatal conductance model was parameterized to simulate 

stomatal conductance of wheat leaves from environmental factors. Approximately 90%, 77% 

and 83% variation of measured stomatal conductance could be explained by the stomatal 

conductance model. In the experiment, the total ozone absorption flux in ozone 

concentration of CK(53.67 nL&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>), 100nL&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, 

150nL&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>was 6.42 mmol&middot;m<sup>-2</sup>, 12.27 

mmol&middot;m<sup>-2</sup>, 13.90 mmol&middot;m<sup>-2</sup>respectively. The ozone 

concentration gradually increased from early period to late period during the period of 

winter wheat growth in Jiangsu area. The average stomatal conductance followed the order 

of the middle stage&gt;the later stage&gt;the early stage. Winter wheat ozone cumulative 

absorption flux was the highest during the middle stage. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All

Abstract:Organics, sulfide and nitrogen compounds in industrial wastewater are 

significant challenges for wastewater treatment. These pollutants could be removed 

simultaneously from wastewater treatment system using biological technologies. In this 

study, a heterotrophic denitrifying sulfur bacterial strain HDD1 was isolated from 

wastewater treatment bioreactor. Strain HDD1 was identified as Thauera sp. based on the 

16S rRNA gene phylogenetic analysis and physiological characteristics. Acetate and 

sulfide could be utilized as electron donors and nitrate as electron acceptor for 

respiration in Thauera sp. HDD1. The acetate (300 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>), sulfide (200 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>) and nitrate (487 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>) were completely 

metabolized and removed within 15 hours. The main product of sulfide oxidation was 

elemental sulfur as identified by scanning electron microscope and energy dispersive 

spectrometer. These results suggest that the newly isolated Thauera sp. HDD1 could be 

used for simultaneous industrial wastewater treatment and elemental sulfur resource 

recovery. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Vegetable is an indispensible component of human daily diet, and contamination 

of vegetables by heavy metals directly threatens human health. In this study, 116 

vegetable samples were collected from 12 administrative districts of Guangzhou City for 

analysis of six heavy metals, Cu, Zn, Pb, Cd, Ni, Cr. A combination of single factor 

evaluation and Nemero Index analysis was employed to determine specific heavy metals 

exceeding allowable standards and analyze the characteristics of pollution. Risk of 

exposure was utilized to assess human health risks originating from eating locally 

planted vegetables contaminated by heavy metals. The results showed that contents of Cu, 

Zn in the 8 sorts of vegetables were below the standards of maximum allowable content and 

the contents of heavy mental Cr of up to 91.67% vegetable samples were higher than their 

standard. Lettuce sativa var. angustana Irish, Luffa acutangula L., Lycopersicon 

esculentum Mill. and Daucus carota L. were the 4 species of Pb exceeding vegetables, with 

the exceed ratio reaching up to 35.71% and Daucus carota L. exceeded the target value 

most seriously. Only the content of Cd in Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. was over-

standard,with the rate of 31.25%. And the highest rate of over-standard of the content of 

Ni in 3 species of vegetables, which included Lactuca sativa L., Ipomoea aquatica Forsk 

and Brassica parachinensis, reached 8.33%. For the contamination level of the eight kinds 

of vegetable, Lactuca sativa L., Ipomoea aquatica Forsk, Brassica parachinensis, Raphanus 

sativus L. and Daucus carota L. were put into the class of alarming, while Lettuce sativa 

var. angustana Irish, Luffa acutangula L. and Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. were 

classified as secure. Heavy metals' comprehensive pollution degree of 4 species of 

vegetables presented a trend of leafy vegetables&gt;rootstalk vegetables&gt;stem 

vegetables&gt;solanaceous fruits. Health risk assessment showed that Guangzhou citizens 

eat more frequently Ipomoea aquatica Forsk and Lactuca sativa L. and Brassica 

parachinensis were prone to higher accumulation of heavy metals, and the dietary intake 

of heavy metal Cr might cause harm to human health and intake of Cd would bring potential 

health risk to the human body. Risk of exposure to heavy metal through oral ingestion of 

vegetables was proved to be higher for children than adults. &copy; 2017, Science Press.

Abstract:In this paper, the generalized additive model (GAM) was introduced to analyze 

the interactive effects of the influencing factors on the change of 

PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration during 2013-2015 in Nanjing city. The results showed as 

follows: PM<inf>2.5</inf>and its influencing factors appeared to follow normal 

distribution. There were strong correlations among the influencing factors, especially 

among the temperature(TEM), pressure(PRS) and water vapor pressure(VAP). For the single 

influencing factor GAM models of PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration, all influencing factors 

passed the significance test. Moreover, the equation fitting degrees of SO<inf>2</inf>, 

CO, and NO<inf>2</inf>were much higher. In the multiple influencing factors GAM models of 

PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration, the contribution of the SO<inf>2</inf>, CO, 

NO<inf>2</inf>, O<inf>3</inf>, precipitation (PRE), wind and relative humidity(RHU) to 

the change of PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration was 73.9% with significant impacts on the 

change of PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration. Based on the diagnostic analysis of the effect 

of multi factors on the change of PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration, there were linear 

relationship between PM<inf>2.5</inf>and SO<inf>2</inf>, NO<inf>2</inf>and wind, and 

non-linear relationship between PM<inf>2.5</inf>and CO, O<inf>3</inf>, PRE and RHU. The 

GAM models, which considered the interaction of SO<inf>2</inf>respectively with CO, PRE 

and RHU, the interaction of CO respectively with NO<inf>2</inf>, O<inf>3</inf>, PRE, Wind 

and RHU, and the interaction of NO<inf>2</inf>respectively with Wind, PRE and RHU, all 

passed the significance test(P&lt;0.01 or P&lt;0.05). The interaction of SO<inf>2</inf>, 

CO and NO<inf>2</inf>respectively with other factors such as meteorological factors had 

the most important influence on the change of PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration. At last, 

through the visualized three-dimensional map of the GAM models considering the 

interaction of the influencing factors on the PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration, the 

interactive effects of the influencing factors on PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration were 

quantitatively modeled. Our results demonstrated that GAM could be used to quantitatively 

analyze the interactive effect of the influencing factors on the change of 

PM<inf>2.5</inf>concentration. Therefore, the research method is innovative and important 

for PM<inf>2.5</inf>pollution and control. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right

Abstract:The biodegradation characteristics of the azo disperse dye neocron black (NB) 

were investigated under aerobic, anaerobic and anaerobic/aerobic conditions separately 

with the activated sludge system, and the biological degradation process of the dye was 

analyzed by spectrophotometry and gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The 

results showed that the degradation efficiency of NB dye was the highest under fully 

aerobic conditions, followed by the anaerobic/aerobic conditions, and fully anaerobic 

condition was the lowest. With the increase of the concentration of NB dye, the dye and 

the intermediate metabolite greatly decreased the microbial degradation efficiency of NB 

dye. The addition of carbon source could not only promote the biodegradation of NB dye, 

but also change the kinetic characteristics of the biodegradation process. The 

spectrophotometry and GC-MS determination results showed that the chromophore was 

completely degraded after biodegradation of NB dye. The intermediates metabolites of NB 

dye included 2,4-Dinitroaniline, 2-cyano-4-nitro aniline, p-Nitroaniline etc. &copy;

Abstract:Foulants responsible for hydraulic irreversible fouling in Dongjiang River water 

were identified by ultrafiltration process and their removal by powdered activated carbon 

(PAC) adsorption treatment was investigated using fluorescent excitation emission matrix 

and parallel factor analysis (EEM-PARAFAC). A correlation analysis was then carried out 

for samples between the maximum fluorescence intensities (F<inf>max</inf>) of three 

PARAFAC components after PAC adsorption and the surface properties of corresponding PAC 

samples. The results showed that two humic-like (C1 and C3) and one tryptophan-like 

fluorescent components were obtained through PARAFAC analysis, in which tryptophan-like 

component C2 was found to be the main substance in hydraulic irreversible foulants 

extracted from fouled membrane. Furthermore, the results of correlation analysis 

suggested that microspore area of PAC correlated with PAC adsorption of tryptophan-like 

fluorescent components, which played an important role in irreversible fouling. Both BET 

and mesopore+macropore area of PAC correlated with its adsorption of humic-like 

fluorescent components. The result provided support for selecting PAC in PAC-

ultrafiltration hybrid process, which would be more effective for fouling control. &copy;

Abstract:Water quality is the key problem that water management departments concern. 

Water quality of Beijing segment of South-to-North Water Diversion Middle Route Project 

is closely related to water security and social stability in Beijing. Since the 

connection of Beijing part in Middle Route of South-to-North Diversion Project, water 

quality data of Daning regulation and storage reservoir and Daning surge tank was 

collected, and water quality indexes including water temperature, total nitrogen, nitrate 

nitrogen, chloride ion, sulfate, dissolved oxygen, permanganate index, pH, ammonia 

nitrogen, fluorine ion and total phosphorus, were monitored monthly. With variance 

analysis, water quality difference among different water sources of the South-to-North 

Water Diversion of Middle Route was analyzed. With factor analysis method, the water 

quality risk factors of Daning regulation and storage reservoir and Daning surge tank 

were identified. The results were as following, water from Hebei province had higher 

contents of nitrate nitrogen, total nitrogen, fluorine ion, chloride ion and sulfate than 

those of water from Danjiangkou reservoir, but the water quality was not as good as that 

from Danjiangkou reservoir. LSD difference test results showed that the dissolved oxygen, 

nitrate nitrogen and total nitrogen of the water from Hebei province had significant 

differences (P&lt;0.05) between flood season and non-flood season, there was significant 

difference (P&lt;0.05) in pH of water from Danjiangkou reservoir between flood season and 

non-flood season, and the water quality of Danjiangkou reservoir was more stable than 

water from Heibei province. No matter in flood season or non-flood season, there were no 

significant differences (P&lt;0.05) in pH, dissolved oxygen, permanganate index, total 

phosphorus and ammonia nitrogen between the water from Danjiangkou reservoir and Heibei 

province, but there were significant differences (P&lt;0.05) in nitrate nitrogen, total 

nitrogen, fluorine ion and sulfate ion and chloride ion. Contents of Nitrate nitrogen, 

total nitrogen, sulfate and chloride ion in 2015 (the mixture of water from Hebei 

province and Danjiangkou reservoir) in Daning regulation and storage reservoir were lower 

than those in 2012-2014 (water from Hebei province), and the water from Danjiangkou 

reservoir played a key role in dilution and adjustment of the water from Hebei province 

in Daning regulation and storage reservoir. The water quality differences test results 

between 2012-2014 and 2015 showed that there were significant differences (P&lt;0.05) in 

the nitrate nitrogen, total nitrogen, fluorine ion, sulfate and chloride ion both in 

flood season and non-flood season, and the water quality of 2015 was better than that of 

2012~2014 in non-flood season, but the differences of pH, dissolved oxygen, permanganate 

index, total phosphorus, ammonia nitrogen were not obvious (P&lt;0.05). The difference 

test results between Daning regulation and storage reservoir and Daning surge tank showed 

that Permanganate index, total nitrogen, fluorine ion, sulfate and chloride ion had 

significant differences (P&lt;0.05) both in flood season and non-flood season, and the 

contents of permanganate index, fluorine ion, sulfate and chloride ions in Daning 

regulation and storage reservoir were higher than those in Daning surge tank. The factor 

analysis results indicated that water quality potential risk factors both in Daning 

regulation and storage reservoir and Daning surge tank were mainly nitrogen, including 

ammonia nitrogen, nitrate nitrogen and total nitrogen, and potential risk factors also 

included total phosphorus in Daning regulation and storage reservoir. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:This study conducted a full two-year (2014 and 2015) measurements of dry and 

bulk deposition of atmospheric inorganic nitrogen (N) at the suburb of Xining city, 

Qinghai province. Dry N deposition fluxes were calculated by multiplying the atmospheric 

concentrations of NH<inf>3</inf>and NO<inf>2</inf>measured using passive samplers with 

the modeled dry deposition velocities provided by the GEOS-Chem global chemical transport 

model, while bulk N deposition fluxes were measured using precipitation gauge. Annual 

mean concentrations of gaseous NH<inf>3</inf>and NO<inf>2</inf>averaged 8.8 and 19.6 

&mu;g&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>, respectively, with significantly higher values in 2015 than 

in 2014. Seasonal mean NH<inf>3</inf>concentrations were higher in spring and summer than 

in autumn and winter, but the concentrations of NO<inf>2</inf>changed little from season 

to season, with a small peak in autumn. Annual mean concentrations of 

NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N and NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N in precipitation averaged 

2.2 and 1.8 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. Concentrations of 

NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N in autumn were~55% lower than those in other seasons, 

whereas those of NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N in autumn or winter were~26% higher than 

those in spring and summer. Dry deposition of NH<inf>3</inf>and NO<inf>2</inf>was 9.0 and 

2.8 kg&middot;(hm<sup>2</sup>&middot;a)<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. Bulk deposition of 

NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N and NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N in precipitation was 7.6 

and 6.2 kg&middot;(hm<sup>2</sup>&middot;a)<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. Reduced N 

(gaseous NH<inf>3</inf>and NH<inf>4</inf><sup>+</sup>-N in precipitation) was the 

dominant form of N deposition. The total dry and wet N deposition was 25.6 kg&middot;

(hm<sup>2</sup>&middot;a)<sup>-1</sup>, which represented significant nutrient input from 

the environment to the suburban farmland, but this amount of deposited N exceeded the 

critical loads [10-20 kg&middot;(hm<sup>2</sup>&middot;a)<sup>-1</sup>] of terrestrial 

ecosystems, suggesting a risk of &ldquo;N saturation&rdquo; in the local natural 

environment. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:A short-cut nitrification process with modified polyethylene as carrier was 

operated to investigate the biofilm short-cut nitrification recovery using synthetic 

inorganic ammonia-rich wastewater as influent at 30&#8451; &plusmn;1&#8451;. The short-

cut nitrification was destroyed first by excessive aeration, and it was not built in 83 

days under the condition of continuous aeration with DO less than 0.5 mg&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>and free ammonia (FA) more than 1.5 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, which are very 

beneficial to short-cut nitrification. However, short-cut nitrification was realized by 

changing continuous aeration to intermittent aeration on 84<sup>th</sup>day, and it was 

proved again on 142nd day. After that, biofilm system provided a living environment for 

ANAMMOX bacteria, anaerobic ammonia oxidation occurred, and the biofilm short-cut 

nitrification process was gradually transformed into CANON process. As the load of 

influent and aeration increased, the total nitrogen removal efficiency and removal load 

increased, and the total nitrogen removal load could reach up to 2.52 kg&middot;

(m<sup>3</sup>&middot;d)<sup>-1</sup>. Finally, in the 3rd stage, 

&Delta;NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-</sup>-N/&Delta;TN was 0.10 on average, which means stabe 

short-cut nitrification in the CANON process. Therefore, once NOB was adapted to FA, it 

would be not very easy to recover short-cut nitrification, while intermittent aeration 

was an effective way, and the nitriation process would be finally transformed into CANON 

process, which would further improve the short-cut nitrification stability. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:UV activated sodium persulfate was employed to remove triclosan (TCS) in aqueous 

solution. The effects of several factors such as UV wavelength, 

UV<inf>254</inf>intensity, sodium persulfate dosage, pH value, and HA on TCS degradation 

were investigated. The second-order rate constants of free radicals (&middot;OH, 

SO<inf>4</inf><sup>&middot;-</sup>) reacting with TCS and their contributions to TCS 

removal were determined, respectively. The dominant free radical was also identified. 

Furthermore, the TCS degradation efficiency in natural water by UV<inf>254</inf>/SPS and 

UV<inf>254</inf>/H<inf>2</inf>O<inf>2</inf>was compared. Finally, the possible pathway 

and intermediate products of TCS degradation were analyzed with GC/MS. The results 

indicated that UV<inf>254</inf>activated sodium persulfate could effectively remove TCS. 

The removal rate of TCS could reach 98.15% within 100s under the conditions of UV 

wavelength of 254 nm,UV intensity of 11.5&mu;W&middot;cm<sup>-2</sup>,sodium persulfate 

dosage of 1mmol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>,and TCS initial concentration of 275 

&mu;g&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. TCS degradation followed the pseudo-first-order kinetic 

model and the pseudo-first-order rate constant was determined to be 0.039 2 s<sup>-

1</sup>. Pseudo-first-order rate constant for TCS degradation increased with the increase 

of UV<inf>254</inf>intensity(I)and sodium persulfate dosage within experiment ranges. The 

effect of UV wavelength on TCS removal was not notable. Neutral condition was detrimental 

to TCS degradation. TCS removal was inhibited in the presence of HA. The reaction rate 

constants for &middot;OH and SO<inf>4</inf><sup>&middot;-</sup>reacting with TCS were 

7.62&times;10<sup>9</sup>L&middot;mol<sup>-1</sup>&middot;s<sup>-1</sup>and 

9.86&times;10<sup>9</sup>L&middot;mol<sup>-1</sup>&middot;s<sup>-1</sup>,respectively. 

SO<inf>4</inf><sup>&middot;-</sup>was the dominant free radical and its contribution rate 

to TCS removal was 97.63% in UV<inf>254</inf>/SPS system. The K value of 

UV<inf>254</inf>/SPS was 4.13 times higher than that of 

UV<inf>254</inf>/H<inf>2</inf>O<inf>2</inf>process,which demonstrated that 

UV<inf>254</inf>/SPS process could remove TCS more effectively than 

UV<inf>254</inf>/H<inf>2</inf>O<inf>2</inf>. The main intermediate products found were 

2,4-DCP and phenol in the degradation process of TCS in Milli-Q water by 

UV<inf>254</inf>/SPS. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Targeting at the characteristics of low concentration but high risk of endocrine 

disrupting compounds in the aquatic environment, the current study investigated the 

distribution of estrogenicity and E2 level using recombinant yeast estrogen screen (YES) 

and enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELSIA) during domestic wastewater treatment 

processes. The results showed that the levels of estrogenicity and E2 in influents of 

wastewater treatment plants were 4.35-7.58 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>and 36.95-83.43 

ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. It was found that biological treatment processes 

played a crucial role in the removal of estrogenicity and E2, such as oxidation ditch, 

A<sup>2</sup>/O and A<sup>2</sup>/O followed by MBR, where the removal of estrogenicity 

and E2 was 71.10%-75.54% and 75.88%-80.72%, respectively. The activated sludge, with an 

estrogencity level of 1.84-2.43 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>and an E2 level of 8.45-12.84 

ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, had the function of eliminating estrogenic effect to a certain 

extent by adsorption. The estrogenic activity in the effluent of domestic wastewater was 

1.06-2.19 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, which will pose potential risk to the aquatic life in 

the environment. Last but not least, ELISA had a good correlation with YES assay, which 

provides a new method for rapid screening and assessment of water environmental estrogen.

Abstract:The alleviation effect of exogenous melatonin (MT) on Ni toxicity in rice 

seedings was investigated. The results showed that low concentration of Ni stress (10, 50 

&mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>) had little effect on the growth of root of rice seedings, 

while higher concentration of Ni stress (100-1 000 &mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>) 

significantly inhibited the growth of rice root. Compared with the control treatment, the 

addition of 100 and 1 000 &mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>Ni would decrease the total length 

and surface area of root by 63.3%-98.0% and 56.9%-96.3%, respectively. The results showed 

that addition of exogenous melatonin had a positive effect on the growth of rice seedings 

under Ni stress. This kind of positive effect was even more obvious in the root of rice 

seedings. The total length of rice root decreased by 58.4%-83.8% at Ni concentration of 

100 &mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, whereas it decreased by only 8.7%-29.1% when 100 

&mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>Ni and 10 &mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>MT were added, 

compared with the control treatment. The addition of exogenous melatonin had significant 

alleviation effects on oxidative stress in rice seedings caused by Ni. Compared with the 

100 &mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>Ni treatment, addition of 10 &mu;mol&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>exogenous MT could significantly decrease the production rate of 

O<inf>2</inf><sup>-&middot;</sup>by 43.2%-50.2% and the relative electrolytic leakage by 

25.7%-31.6%, whereas increase the activities of CAT by 21.9%-33.7% and the soluble 

protein content by 82.6%-84.6%. The results suggested that application of exogenous 

melatonin could effectively alleviate the toxic effects of Ni on rice seedings. &copy;

Abstract:Wastewater treatment plants treating industrial wastewater and municipal 

wastewater may suffer from unexpected shock loads of high ammonia concentrations, which 

can lead to inhibition of biological nitrification and failure to meet the wastewater 

discharge standards. In order to solve the problem of failure to meet the standards, the 

effects of high loadings of free ammonia (FA) on the nitrification process were 

investigated in this work using a sequencing batch reactor (SBR). For such purpose, 

maximum specific degradation rates of ammonia, maximum specific formation rates of 

nitrate, specific oxygen uptake rates and abundances of nitrifying bacteria were 

monitored. The results showed that FA promoted nitrification activities at low 

concentrations and inhibited the activities when the FA concentration exceeded a certain 

value. In addition, high loading concentrations of FA resulted in long recovery times. 

When the FA concentration increased from 3.6 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to 8.1 

mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, the abundances of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) and 

nitrite-oxidizing bacteria (NOB) increased slightly, as shown by the fluorescence in situ 

hybridization tests. However, there were apparent decreases in the abundances of AOB and 

NOB when the concentration of FA was higher than 8.1 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. The 

critical FA inhibitory concentrations for AOB and NOB were 8.1 mg&middot;L<sup>-

1</sup>and 6.6 mg&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>. It was found that the NOB flora were more 

sensitive than AOB to FA inhibition. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Decabromodiphenyl ether (BDE-209), a main ingredient of brominated flame 

retardants, has drawn more and more attention because of the pollution it caused in 

sediment. A pot experiment was conducted in a greenhouse to investigate the impact of 

Brevibacillus brevis and Enterococcus casselifavus on the enhancement of phytoremediation 

by Thalia dealbata, which is common in the river bank and was found to be an effective 

plant for BDE-209 removal. The concentration of organic acids, the amount of 

microorganisms and the ability of carbon utilization of soil microorganisms in different 

experimental groups were analyzed. The results showed that the removal rate of BDE-209 in 

the exogenous microbes containing groups were higher than that of the control. And B. 

brevis presented the highest enhancement of phytoremediation with the removal rate rising 

highest to 66% compared with the control (non-rhizosphere group 37.93% and no plant group 

39.27%) after 60 days. The removal of BDE-209 in sediment, quantity of microorganism, 

concentration of organic acids and the ability of carbon utilization of soil 

microorganisms in rhizosphere sediment were higher than those in non-rhizosphere 

sediment. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:PM<inf>2.5</inf>samples of four seasons were collected from Nov. 2014 to Aug. 

2015 at the site of Shengsi island in Zhoushan islands. Mercury (Hg) and speciated 

mercury concentrations in PM<inf>2.5</inf>samples were measured by Atomic Fluorescence 

Spectrometry (AFS-9130, China) after digestion with CEM Mars Xpress (PyNN Corporation, 

USA). The concentrations of organic carbon (OC) and elemental carbon (EC) in 

PM<inf>2.5</inf>samples were determined by thermal/optical carbon analyzer (DRI, USA). 

The results showed that the daily concentrations of PM<inf>2.5</inf>-bounded mercury 

(PBM) ranged from 0.02 to 1.25 ng&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>. Moreover, the mass content of 

PBM was (12.46&plusmn;18.79) &mu;g&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, which was higher than those in 

continental cities. ANOVA analysis result suggested that the highest average mass 

concentrations of PBM occurred in fall, sequentially followed by spring, winter and 

summer. Higher concentrations of PBM were in fall and spring, which might be related to 

biomass burning. In addition, RPM took the highest fraction of 53.1% in PBM, followed by 

HPM (27.3%) and EPM (19.7%), which might be resulted from the complicated composition of 

marine aerosols. The strong correlations among OC, EC and PBM indicated that carbonaceous 

composition may affect the transport of Hg in the atmosphere. The ratio of OC/EC 

represents atmospheric photo-oxidation capacity, so the positive correlation between 

OC/EC ratio and HPM indicated that HPM was resulted from atmospheric gas-particle 

transformation. The negative correlation between Char-EC/soot-EC and mercury species 

indicated that the atmospheric particle-bounded mercury might come mainly from the input 

of external mercury sources. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:Four typical coal-fired power plants in Chongqing, representing two different 

boiler types (circulating fluidized bed boiler and pulverized coal boiler), were chosen 

to investigate mercury emission characteristics through a mercury mass balance method by 

analyzing mercury contents in all input and output raw materials in order to accurately 

estimate mercury emissions. The results showed coal with mercury concentrations ranging 

(80.77&plusmn;6.39)-(266.83&plusmn;4.71) &mu;g&middot;kg<sup>-1</sup>could be a 

significant contributor of input mercury in these four studied power plants. Most mercury 

output from these power plants entered into solid waste with high proportion of mercury 

entering the fly ash in CFB plants and entering the fly ash and desulfurization gypsum in 

PC plants. Mercury removal efficiencies of studied plants were in the range of 72.89%-

96.05%, and these efficiencies in CFB plants were higher than those in PC plants. The 

mercury emission factors for EF<inf>electricity</inf>and EF<inf>coal</inf>of these four 

plants were 4.66-29.47 &mu;g&middot;(kW&middot;h)<sup>-1</sup>and 8.55-71.77 

mg&middot;t<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. The mercury emission was also calculated to be 

6.13-429.17 g&middot;d<sup>-1</sup>. Mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants were 

associated with the content of mercury in coal, boiler type, generation load, pollution 

control equipment, and so on. To control the mercury emissions, more attention should be 

paid to improving the generation load, increasing the mercury removal efficiency of flue 

gas cleaning equipment, and strengthening the supervision of solid waste re-utilization.

Abstract:To reveal the effect of coupling process of wetting-drying and seasonal 

temperature on sediment nitrogen (N) minerization, surface sediment samples were 

collected from the water level fluctuating zone(WLFZ) of Pengxi River crossing two 

hydrological sections. The sediment samples were incubated under drying and submerging 

conditions at the controlled temperature. The result showed that NO<inf>3</inf><sup>-

</sup>-N and sand% in the sediment of higher altitude of water level (170 m) were higher 

than those in low altitudes (150 and 160 m), whereas contents of TN, NH<inf>4</inf><sup>

+</sup>-N and clay% and silt% in low altitudes were much higher. Generally, Net N 

mineralization rate and cumulation were lower in higher altitude of water level during 

the drying period and submerging period. The ammonification rate decreased rapidly at the 

initial stage of incubation (0-7 d), and then had no obvious change, and no significant 

differences among altitudes was observed. The nitrification rate at low altitude 

decreased with incubation time, while it had only a little change at higher altitude; The 

nitrification contributed a higher fraction of net N mineralization than ammonification. 

Net N mineralization rate and its cumulation were significantly higher in the drying 

period than in the submerging period, while net N mineralization rate decreased with 

incubation time at all altitudes. Net N mineralization cumulation tended to rise first 

and then declined at all altitudes of the drying period, whereas it was continuously 

decreasing at the low water level altitude during the submerging period. Net N nitrogen 

mineralization rate of the drying period was positively correlate to both the sediment 

organic matter content and its C&#8758;N ratio, while it showed a negative correlation in 

the submerging period(P&lt;0.001). Net N mineralization was sensitive to temperature 

increase (Q<inf>10</inf>&gt;1) in the drying period, while it was insensitive during the 

submerging period of low altitude (Q<inf>10</inf>&lt;1). Thus, the impact of temperature 

on Net N mineralization was relatively low in submerging period of winter and N was 

accumulated with low releasing rate. In contrast to winter, summer exhibited warmer and 

drying period, this two factors would lead to higher N mineralization rate and further 

induce the potential risk of eutrophication as N releasing into water body. &copy; 2017,

Abstract:Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the atmosphere of the north suburb of 

Nanjing in December 2015 were determined by GC5000 online gas chromatography, and the 

main composition and characteristics of VOCs were analyzed by using the PMF receptor 

model sources of VOCs parsing. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 

human exposure analysis and evaluation method in the United States were used to evaluate 

Human health risk of benzene series. The results showed that there were 6 sources in the 

PMF mode. Natural gas leakage accounted for 32.05%, automobile exhaust accounted for 

18.99%, solvent use 13.67%, industrial emissions 2 13.20%, gasoline volatile 11.72%, and 

industrial emissions 1 (chemical type) 10.36%. The high value areas of the emission 

source were in accordance with the location of pollution sources surrounding the 

observation point. The B/T ratio was 0.74, which was at a relatively high level.The 

noncarcinogenic risk hazard quotient value HQ at 06:00 reached the highest value. HQ risk 

values were within the safe range specified by EPA. HQ of each source was as follows: 

automobile exhaust emissions 20.67&times;10<sup>-2</sup>, solvent use 

6.97&times;10<sup>-2</sup>, natural gas leakage 6.34&times;10<sup>-2</sup>. In the 

carcinogenic risk of benzene, automobile exhaust emissions was 4.11&times;10<sup>-

6</sup>, and natural gas leakage was 1.09&times;10<sup>-6</sup>, both were higher than 

the EPA specified safety threshold. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:8 surface sediments and 8 water samples were collected from the Daye Lake in 

August 2015. The 16 kinds of EPA control polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were 

analyzed by GC-MS. The results showed that the PAHs concentrations of surface sediments 

and water ranged from 35.94 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>to 2 032.73 ng&middot;g<sup>-

1</sup>and from 27.94 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>to 242.95 ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, with 

average contents of 940.61 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>and 107.77ng&middot;L<sup>-1</sup>, 

respectively. The distribution of PAHs in surface sediments indicated that the contents 

in the center samples were higher than those in the bank samples, but the water showed 

nearly the opposite tendency. The 4-5 rings high molecular weight PAHs were the main 

components in the surface sediments, and the 2, 4 and 5 rings PAHs were given priority in 

water. Compared with the other domestic and oversea lakes, the PAHs pollution of the Daye 

Lake was at a moderate level. Source apportionment showed that the PAHs in surface 

sediments and water from the Daye Lake came from the combustion source, HWM-PAHs were the 

dominant part of the PAHs in the sediment, reflecting the sediment PAHs pollution under 

the effects of mining and smelting over a long period; All monomer PAHs and total PAHs 

content in sediment did not exceed the ERM and FEL limiting values, showing that there 

was no particularly serious ecological risk caused by PAHs in the surface sediments from 

the Daye Lake; the incremental lifetime cancer risks assessment showed that the uptake 

risk of PAHs in Daye Lake water through the ingestion and dermal absorption were both in 

the acceptable range recommended by the USEPA, but all sites had higher risk than the 

acceptable risk level recommended by the Sweden environmental protection agency and Royal 

society. The pollution of seven carcinogenic PAHs needs prevention and control. &copy;

observation period was in the range of 1.01-14.05 &mu;g&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>with an 

average of 4.39 &mu;g&middot;m<sup>-3</sup>, showing the characteristics of double peaks 

for lighter pollution, andhigh in the nighttime and low in the daytime during heavier 

pollution. Using the relative coating thickness(D<inf>p</inf>/D<inf>c</inf>)to define 

mixing state of black carbon, diurnal variations were higher in early morning and noon 

when slightly polluted, and lower during rush hour, indicating the degree of BC ageing 

was deeper in the morning and afternoon, with fresher particles near the ground source 

emissions during rush hour. The relative coating thickness did not vary greatly 

throughout the day when heavily polluted, which was expected to be linked to regional 

pollutants and it also showed Gas-solid transformation under high relative humidity. The 

average mass and number size distribution had single peaking with the same BC volume-

equivalent diameter in different degrees of pollution, with the peak diameter at 100 nm 

for the number distribution when heavily polluted, at 91 nm when slightly polluted, and 

at 210 nm for the mass distribution regardless of the degree of pollution. We could find 

regional differences of BC sources by comparing the observed research worldwide. This 

study has very important reference value for the in-depth understanding of BC pollution 

in Yangtze River Delta. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:In order to study the distribution characteristics of organophosphorus 

pesticides (OPPs)in the soil of Jianghan plain,78 profile-soil samples from various depth 

and 7 surface-soil samples were collected in September,2015 in established groundwater 

monitoring field site, Jianghan plain. The OPPs concentrations were determined by gas 

chromatography with nitrogen-phosphorus detector(GC-NPD). The results showed that OPPs 

were widespread in our studied area. The OPPs concentrations of suface-soil samples 

ranged from 89.80 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>to 193.85 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>,with an 

average of 140.05 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>, whereas the OPPs concentrations of profile-

soil samples ranged from 19.81 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>to 138.28 ng&middot;g<sup>-

1</sup>,with an average of 40.99 ng&middot;g<sup>-1</sup>. The main ingredients of OPPs 

in surface and profile soil samples were methamidophos, omethoate, diazinon and 

quinalphos,and the residual amount of 10 kinds of OPPs had posed a threat to agricultural 

products according to the America soil pesticide residue limits standards. The horizontal 

distribution of OPPs concentration in profile soil followed the order of nearby river 

farm area&gt;nearby river area&gt;farm area, namely GS1-1&gt;GS4&gt;GS2&gt;GS3. while the 

vertical distribution mostly decreased at first and then increased with increasing depth. 

The distribution characteristics of OPPs were also influenced by many factors, such as 

application amount of OPPs, the adsorption and desorption actions of soil, vertical 

movement of groundwater, the terrain environment in the study area, and the concentration 

of soil organic matters. &copy; 2017, Science Press. All right reserved.

Abstract:This study aimed to identify the function of polyphosphate kinase gene (ppk) in 

phosphorus removal. With the Red system, the target DNA with the homologous short arms 

was amplified in the plasmid pKD4. Then the target DNA was transformed into E. coli 

ATCC25922 which already had the suicide plasmid pKD46 by electroporation. The plasmid 

pCP20 was transformed into the recombinant strains to delete the kanamycin resistance 

gene. With the screening by negative resistance, together with verification using 

positive and negative primers, the construction of ppk gene deletion strain E. 

coli/ppk<sup>-</sup>Kan<sup>-</sup>was confirmed. The growth characteristics of both the 

wild-type strain and the mutant strain were determined, and the phosphate accumulating 

characteristics were compared when cultured in the phosphate luxuriant medium after 

induced in the phosphate lacking medium. Also the phosphate accumulating characteristics 

of the two strains were compared after cultured in the anaerobic and aerobic alternating 

conditions for 5 times. The results showed that the ppk deletion strain E. 

coli/ppk<sup>-</sup>Kan<sup>-</sup>was successfully constructed. There was no growth 

difference between the mutant strain and the wild-type strain. But in the first 4 hours 

of log phase, the mutant strain grew faster than the wild-type strain. And 8h later, when 

both strains were in stationary phase, the mutant strain grew slower than the wild type, 

indicating that ppk affected the growth of the bacteria. Cultured in the phosphate 

lacking medium and the phosphate luxuriant medium, the mutant strain's ability of 

phosphate accumulating didn't decrease in spite of having no ppk gene. After 5 times 

induction, the amounts of phosphorus in both strains were about 1%-2%. The phosphate 

amounts in the cells did not increase with increasing inducing times. Polyphosphate or 

PHB was detected neither at anaerobic phase nor at the aerobic phase. It indicated that 

the deletion of ppk did not affect the phosphorus removal in wastewater treatment 

process, and the ppk gene did not show the function of phosphorus removal. &copy; 2017,
