The environmental impacts of renewable energy are site specific, but generalizations are still possible. Renewable energy is usually more environmentally friendly than alternative energy sources Author: Shitalkumar Patel. Introduction.

The massive use of fossil fuels has led to chaos and adverse impact on the entire living ecosystems. Climate change is another problem that has a devastating impression on human life and the environment [1,2].Concerning the fast depletion of fossil-based energy resources, the demand for the development of sustainable energy is growing at a constant pace [].Cited by: 2.

A crude oil and a synthetic reservoir water are used to prepare water-in-oil emulsions. The droplet-size distribution of water-in-oil emulsions is measured by digitally processing optical micrographs.

The time evolution of the droplet-size distribution is used as a proxy of emulsion stability. A procedure for obtaining homogeneous aliquots of the initial emulsion is by: Abstract. Agricultural losses caused by salinity are difficult to assess but estimated to be substantial and expected to increase with time.

Secondary salinization of agricultural lands is particularly widespread in arid and semiarid environments where crop production requires irrigation by: levels that impact on human and natural assets (e.g.
