Mangrove forests are highly valuable environments that offer numerous ecosystem services, including carbon storage, serving as nurseries for fish and shrimp, and providing timber. Additionally, these ecosystems offer coastline protection against erosion and flooding by attenuating waves and trapping sediment. Despite the crucial role of mangrove...

Live Pole Drains (LPDs) are a plant-based drainage system used to drain natural slopes and prevent shallow gully erosion. LPDs are a Nature-based Solution built by placing a live fascine in a shallow ditch or gully along the slope direction, allowing moderate fluxes of surface runoff or seepage to infiltrate and high water fluxes to be conveyed...

Human activities are dismantling ecosystems and eliminating genes, species, and biotopes at an alarming rate. Habitat fragmentation caused by urbanisation and infrastructure is one of the main causes of the decline in urban biodiversity. Despite challenges, project developers can enhance biodiversity in urban areas by adopting nature-inclusive...

River managers today are faced with the challenge of adapting to climate change while also having to sustainably secure all important functions in a healthy river system for society. Nature-based Solutions (NbS) have proven themselves effective across a multitude of contexts; providing integrative approaches for river restoration, conservation...

The deployment of electromagnetic (EM) induction tools while drilling is one of the standard routines for assisting the geosteering decision-making process. The conductivity distribution obtained through the inversion of the EM induction log can provide important information about the geological structure around the borehole. To image the 3-D...

We critically review the derivation of closed-form analytical expressions for elastic displacements, strains, and stresses inside a subsurface reservoir undergoing pore pressure changes using inclusion theory. Although developed decades ago, inclusion theory has been used recently by various authors to obtain fast estimates of depletion...

Among experts, it is well-known that the thermal conductivity of PCMs (phase change materials) is low hence a major limitation for their commercial application. This work proposes alternative, inexpensive, but nevertheless effective solutions to increase the average thermal conductivity of a PCM system (a commercial paraffin wax, having a...

Nature-based living labs combine the elements of nature-based solution design with a living lab context to address social and environmental resilience challenges. There is a need to deepen insights on the characteristics of the emergent phenomenon of nature-based living labs, with respect to their predecessors. Accordingly, the paper first...

The private rented sector (PRS) plays an increasingly important role in accommodating young people and migrants in China’s metropolitan cities. However, the PRS in China is still underdeveloped, as evidenced by, e.g. a low degree of professionalisation, lack of basic rental laws and regulations, and poor housing experiences of tenants. The...

This study characterized the morphology, high-temperature property, rheological property, adhesion, cohesion, and chemical component of asphalt binder under aqueous solutions of different pH values. Then the physicochemical properties of asphalt binder were comprehensively evaluated by the improved radar chart. The properties of asphalt...

Climate change stresses the need for research and development of innovative sustainable mobility solutions that provide reliable and convenient door-to-door services for both passengers and freight. The increase in urban population and the popularity of e-commerce further highlights the need for action. In this regard, crowd-shipping is often...

We study a system of non-linear fractional differential equations, subject to integral boundary conditions. We use a parametrization technique and a dichotomy-type approach to reduce the original problem to two “model-type” fractional boundary value problems with linear two-point boundary conditions. A numerical-analytic technique is applied...

The relationship between humans and nature is in permanent change. Where the city and nature used to be seen as enemies that needed to be kept away from each other, the current paradigm looks at a more symbiotic relationship. In this, man is seen as part of nature, and the city is seen as a determining factor in providing conditions for a rich...

We consider the context of molecular motors modelled by a diffusion process driven by the gradient of a weakly periodic potential that depends on an internal degree of freedom. The switch of the internal state, that can freely be interpreted as a molecular switch, is modelled as a Markov jump process that depends on the location of the motor....

Hydrogen peroxide plays a key role in many environmental and industrial chemical processes. We performed classical Molecular Dynamics and Continuous Fractional Component Monte Carlo simulations to calculate thermodynamic properties of H<sub>2</sub>O<sub>2</sub> in aqueous solutions. The quality of the available force fields for H<sub>2</sub>O...

In flow-by capacitive deionization (CDI) brackish water flows between two electrodes that capacitively remove salt. We assume low inlet concentrations so “salt shocks” appear in the electrodes and the process becomes diffusion-limited. For unit charge efficiency, a simplified model is derived consisting of two coupled partial differential...

Since the development of the best–worst method (BWM) in 2015, it has become a popular research focus in multi-criteria decision-making. The original optimization problem of the BWM is a nonlinear min–max model that can lead to multiple optimal solutions, while the linear model of the BWM produces a unique solution. The two models need to be...

The transition kernel of an ℝ <sup>n</sup>-valued diffusion or jump diffusion process {X <sub>t</sub>} is known to satisfy the Feller property if {X <sub>t</sub>} is the solution of an SDE whose coefficients are Lipschitz continuous. This Lipschitz route to Feller falls short if {X <sub>t</sub>} is the solution of an SDE whose coefficients...

Sand filtration systems (SF) are a well-established approach in ensuring the availability of clean water. Understanding the transport properties of colloidal particles within SF systems is of paramount importance for optimizing their performance. This study investigated the potential utilization of silica-encapsulated DNA particles, equipped...
