Exposure of geomaterials to acid leachates may cause chemical species desorption, mineral dissolution, and metal leaching. This study seeks to understand the changes in the physicochemical composition of liquid extracts resulting from the exposure of four different geomaterials (uniform fine sand, basalt residual soil, kaolin, and bentonite) to a blank solution ...

<p>Increased food production results in the development and application of agrochemicals to control weeds, which can affect agricultural production. Pesticides contaminate the environment and change soil and water quality. Therefore, to improve the understanding of the adsorption mechanism of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) in aluminoferric red oxis...

<p>Pollutants containing metals are an important source of environmental impact. The contaminant’s pH and the<br /> soil are factors that influence the migration in the subsurface. The determination of parameters through analytical solutions<br /> is fundamental to predict contaminant subsurface migration in porous media. The objectiv...

<p>Applying Portland cement to soils is an excellent technique when it is necessary to improve local soil for the<br /> construction of stabilized pavement bases and to have a support layer for shallow foundations. Consoli et al. (2007, 2009,<br /> 2010) developed a rational dosage methodology for artificially cemented soils based on porosity/c...
