New article in Chemosphere: “Effect of ZnO nanoparticles on Zn, Cu, and Pb dissolution in a green bioretention system for urban stormwater remediation”

Check out our new article by Caldelas et al. (2022) https://doi.org/10.1016/j.chemosphere.2021.131045 about the environmental impact of zinc oxide nanoparticles, in partnership with the landscape engineering company Naturalea. Highlights: • We developed a bioretention system that retained up to 73% zinc, 66% copper, and >99% lead. • The zinc oxide nanoparticles increased lead solubility, leading to … Continue reading New article in Chemosphere: “Effect of ZnO nanoparticles on Zn, Cu, and Pb dissolution in a green bioretention system for urban stormwater remediation”

New Article in Atmosphere by Chang-Espino et al.

The article "The Effect of Increased Ozone Levels on the Stable Carbon and Nitrogen Isotopic Signature of Wheat Cultivars and Landraces" was recently published in Atmosphere. It shows the strong correlation that exists between ozone and d13C, and highlights some of the effects of ozone on d15N in terms of N translocation. The study also delves on these differences based … Continue reading New Article in Atmosphere by Chang-Espino et al.

A New article was published by Rezzouk et al. in Agricultural Water Management (2020)

The article entitled : "Agronomic performance of irrigated quinoa in desert areas: Comparing different approaches for early assessment of salinity stress" Highlights: Quinoa is a promising agricultural option in desert areas. Heavy manuring may trigger salinity in quinoa regardless of irrigation conditions. Ion concentrations and δ15N allow early diagnosis of salinity effects. Mg2+ content predicted best … Continue reading A New article was published by Rezzouk et al. in Agricultural Water Management (2020)

New Review Article: Remote Sensing for Precision Agriculture: Sentinel-2 Improved Features and Applications by Segarra et al. (2020)

The use of satellites to monitor crops and support their management is gathering increasing attention. The improved temporal, spatial, and spectral resolution of the European Space Agency (ESA) launched Sentinel-2 A + B twin platform is paving the way to their popularization in precision agriculture. Besides the Sentinel-2 A + B constellation technical features the … Continue reading New Review Article: Remote Sensing for Precision Agriculture: Sentinel-2 Improved Features and Applications by Segarra et al. (2020)
