Ecological Effects of Water-level Fluctuations in Lakes (Developments in Hydrobiology)

So much aquatic ecosystems have variable water degrees. those water-level fluctuations (WLF) have a number of results at the organisms above and lower than the waterline. traditional WLF styles in lakes warrantly either productiveness and biodiversity, whereas premature floods and droughts could have unwanted effects. Human affects on WLF have resulted in a stabilization of the water degrees of many lakes by way of hydraulic legislation, premature drawdown because of water use, or floods as a result of water unencumber from hydropower vegetation within the catchments.

Wassertechnologie: Fällung · Flockung · Separation

Fallung, Flockung und die dazugehorige Abtrennung sind "Arbeitspferde' der Wasseraufbereitung, ebenso wie die mechanisch-biologische Behandlung das wichtigste Grundverfahren der Abwasserreinigung ist. Mit zunehmender In tensivierung der Wassernutzung und der sich ergebenden Verkiirzung des natiirlichen Wasserkreislaufes verlieren sich die Unterschiede zwischen Wasser aufbereitung und Wasserreinigung mehr und mehr.

Example text

To live in a society based on large-scale industrial production is to be subject to a tight web of constraints and pressures. So although Marx himself attached the highest importance to freedom, and thought this would be realised with the potential of large-scale industrial technology, others have seen an incompatibility there. But suppose, they have suggested, we develop a high-productivity technology that could operate on a small scale? Would that not lift the constraints? A small-scale but highly automated system of production could be used to support communities that were essentially small in scale themselves.

Therefore, in re-evaluating the role of feeling in human life the Romantics had more than Enlightenment rationality to oppose. The condemnation of feeling went back a long way, and had taken a variety of different forms. Feelings were important for the Romantics partly because they thought of them as the way in which nature manifests itself to us. 14 Identification of the human being with nature There is finally in Romantic thought a powerful strain of ‘naturemysticism’. It belongs to a long tradition of ‘mystical’ thought in the West, a tradition that lends itself particularly to the strain in Christianity which despises this world and tries to shift the focus elsewhere.

4 Feelings of blessedness, joy, peace, happiness, etc. 5 A feeling that what is apprehended is holy, sacred or divine. 6 Paradoxicality. 7 Allegations by mystics of ineffability. Stace, Mysticism and Philosophy, London, 1961, Macmillan, pp. 15 However, other traditions appear to recognise much the same kind of phenomenon. 1. The nature-mysticism, which we find in Romantic writers like Wordsworth, is not generally regarded as on all fours with the mysticism to be found in the world religions. But it shares with them—and this is our interest—something of the expansion or loss of personal identity that they regard as fundamentally characteristic of the mystical experience.
