Development of a filter system using silver nanoparticles modified silica sand for drinking water disinfection

This study presents a filter system for the removal of pathogenic microorganisms from potable water using silver nanoparticle-modified silica sand. While silica sand has potential applications in wastewater treatment, its effectiveness in microbial filtration falls short. Thus, there is a need for an environmentally friendly enhancement method. The silver nanoparticles were synthesized using Commelina maculata leaf...

Impact of climate variability modes on trend and interannual variability of sea level near the West African coast

The main objectives of this study are to assess the regional distribution of sea level in terms of trend and interannual varibility and to analyze the impacts of climate variability modes such as El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events, Tropical Atlantic Climate Modes of Variability (TACMV), North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) on interannual variability and trend of sea level near the West Africans coasts....
