Monitoramento da atenuação natural de pluma de contaminação pelo método de radar de penetração no solo (GPR)

Moreira, César Augusto; Dourado, João Carlos
2007-12-01

Resumo em português O monitoramento da atenuação natural em áreas contaminadas tem se mostrado uma técnica alternativa e de baixo custo para a remediação de áreas contaminadas. A degradação por microorganismos é um dos processos mais importantes na atenuação natural de contaminantes, especialmente compostos de fase líquida não aquosa (NAPL). Em muitos casos, a ação efetiva deste processo resulta na geração de ácidos orgânicos, que sob elevadas concentrações ocasionam a (mais) dissolução de minerais presentes em subsuperfície onde se encontra a contaminação, com conseqüente liberação de íons. O aumento na quantidade de íons colabora para o aumento da condutividade elétrica do meio. O princípio físico da técnica de Radar de Penetração no Solo (GPR) é a emissão de ondas eletromagnéticas de alta freqüência. A propagação da onda eletromagnética é condicionada à freqüência de sinal emitido e as propriedades elétricas do meio. O aumento da condutividade elétrica do meio resulta na atenuação do sinal e, por conseqüência, na diminuição da profundidade de penetração da onda eletromagnética. Este fator permite o monitoramento de áreas contaminadas sob atenuação natural a partir de análises temporais com o GPR. Este trabalho apresenta um estudo comparativo entre perfis de GPR adquiridos em 1998 e 2003 em uma área contaminada por compostos de fase líquida leve não aquosa (LNAPL), sob atenuação natural. Os resultados indicam um aumento da condutividade elétrica do meio, a partir da atenuação acentuada do sinal GPR observada nas seções de 2003. Este aumento pode estar associado à liberação de íons por dissolução de minerais, pelo ataque de ácidos orgânicos resultantes do processo de biodegradação. Resumo em inglês The monitoring of the natural attenuation in contaminated areas has shown an alternative technique of low cost for the remediation of contaminated areas. The microorganisms degradation is one of the most important processes in the natural attenuation of contaminants, especially composites of Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid (NAPL). In many cases, the action effective of this process results in generation of organic acid, under high concentrations causes the mineral dissolution pr (mais) esents in the subsurface where if it finds the contamination, with release of ions. The increase on the amount of ions collaborates for the increase of the electric conductivity of the environment. The physical principle of the Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is the emission of electromagnetic waves of high frequency. The propagation of the electromagnetic wave depends on the frequency of emitted signal and the electric properties of the subsurface. The increase of electrical conductivity in the subsurface results in the attenuation of the signal and, for consequence, in the reduction of the of penetration depth of electromagnetic wave. This factor allows the monitoring of contaminated areas with natural attenuation from temporal analyses with the GPR. This paper presents a comparative study between profiles of GPR acquired in 1998 and 2003 in an area contaminated for composites of Light Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid (LNAPL), in processes of the natural attenuation. The results indicate an increase of the conductivity in the subsurface, from the accented attenuation it signal GPR observe in the 2003 sections. This increase can be associated to the release of ions for mineral dissolution, for the attack of organic acid resultants of the biodegradation process.

Silva, José Expedito C.; Malta, Oscar L.; Sá, Gilberto F. de; Santa-Cruz, Petrus A.
1998-06-01

Resumo em inglês We are working in a new multi-doped glassy material to generate simultaneously the three primary light color (by addition) of the visible spectrum, with the control of the intensity of each one, allowing the simulation of any color: a full-color generator device. Tm+3, Tb+3 and Eu+3 ions were used (0.01 to 5,0 mol%) as blue, green and red narrow line emitters. A wide color gamut was obtained under ultraviolet excitation by varying the material composition. The chromaticity diagram is covered, including the white simulation.

Queiroga, Carmen Lucia; Nascimento, Lídia Regina; Serra, Gil Eduardo
2003-12-01

Resumo em português Os experimentos com Bacillus subtilis para avaliação da tensão superficial foram realizados com meio de cultivo contendo como nutrientes básicos 0,4% de ions nitrato e 4% de glicose, na presença de petróleo. A produção de surfactina foi observada pela redução da tensão superficial do meio de cultura fermentado. Surfactina foi isolada a partir do meio de cultura fermentado por B. subtilis, por precipitação ácida seguida de extração com clorofórmio-metanol. (mais) A avaliação da composição dos alcanos lineares (parafinas) foi realizada por cromatografia gasosa. Observamos uma significativa redução da tensão superficial do meio de cultura indicando que a produção de biosurfactante não foi inibida pela presença de parafina, e que as parafinas leves podem ter sido consumidas. Resumo em inglês Bacillus subtilis experiments for surface tension evaluation were accomplished with culture medium containing 0.4% nitrate ions and 4% glucose basic nutrient in the presence of crude oil. Surfactin production was observed by surface tension reduction of the culture broth. Surfactin was isolated from Bacillus subtilis fermented broth, by acid-precipitation followed by extraction with chloroform-methanol. Evaluation of the linear alkanes composition was performed by capilla (mais) ry gas chromatography. We observed a significant reduction of the surface tension of the fermented broth indicating that the biosurfactant production was not inhibited by the crude oil presence, and that the light paraffins might have been consumed.

Espectroscopia óptica de vidros fluoroindatos dopados com íons Er3+ e Yb3+/ Optical spectroscopy of in-based fluoride glasses doped with Er3+ and Yb3+ ions

Ribeiro, C. T. M.; Zanatta, A. R.; Sartori, J.; Nunes, L. A. O.; Messaddeq, Y.
1998-07-01

Resumo em inglês Optical spectroscopy in the 400-1700nm wavelength range was performed on rare earth doped heavy metal fluoride (HMF) glasses. In the present work In-based fluoride glasses with a fixed 2 mol % YbF3 concentration and an ErF3 content ranging from 0 to 8 mol % were investigated. According to the experimental spectroscopic data a dependence in the absorption coefficient, the photoluminescence intensity and in the radiative lifetime could be verified as a function of the ErF3 (mais) content. In addition, at liquid nitrogen temperature, light emission corresponding to indirect transitions in the infrared energy range could be easily observed as a consequence of the low phonon frequency characteristic of this class of fluoride glasses. For all the studied compositions, strong upconversion to the green and red light was observed by pumping these Er3+- and Yb3+-doped HMF glasses with 790 and 980nm photon sources.

Coordenação local do Eu(III) em híbridos orgânicos/inorgânicos emissores de luz branca/ Eu(III) local coordination in white light emitters organic-inorganic hybrids

Carlos, Luís D.; Ferreira, Rute A. Sá; Zéa Bermudez, Verónica de; Bueno, Luciano A.; Molina, Celso; Messaddeq, Younes; Ribeiro, Sidney J. L.
2001-08-01

Resumo em inglês Eu3+ luminescence and EXAFS (Extended X-ray Absorption Fine Structure) results are presented for organic-inorganic hybrid gel hosts composed of a siliceous network to which small chains of oxyethylene units are covalently grafted by means of urea bridges. Coordination numbers for Eu3+ ions range from 12.8 to 9.7 with increasing Eu3+ concentration while the Eu3+-first neighbours mean distance is found to be constant at 2.48-2.49 Å in the same concentration range. Emission (mais) spectra display a broad band in the green/blue spectral region superposed to narrow lines appearing in the yellow/red region in such a way that for the eyes emission appears white. The broad band is assigned to intrinsic NH groups emission and also to electron-hole recombination in the nanosised siliceous domains. The narrow lines are assigned to intra-4f6, 5D0->7F0-4 Eu3+ transitions and from the energy position of the 7F0-4 levels a mean distance could be calculated for the Eu3+-first neighbours. The calculated results are in good agreement with the experimental ones obtained from EXAFS analysis.

Avaliação do nível da vulnerabilidade do solo devido à presença de termelétrica a carvão (Figueira, PR- Brasil)/ Evaluation of the soil sensitivity for the acidity near a coal fired power plant (Figueira, PR-Brazil)

Flues, Marlene; Hama, Patrícia; Fornaro, Adalgiza
2003-08-01

Resumo em inglês Rainwater samples were analyzed during a one-year period (June 1999 - June 2000) and presented concentration of pH = 4.9 (volume weight mean). The ions concentrations results showed a high sulfate concentration (35 µmol L-1), followed by the cations concentration of sodium, calcium and ammonium (35, 16 and 30 µmol L-1, respectively). Due to the great contribution of these cations in the sulfate neutralization action, the rainwater of this region had only a light acid ch (mais) aracteristic. The soil characteristic was acid and the bioavailable concentration of the alkaline cations (Ca, Mg and K) presented high calcium concentrations (1001 ± 357 mg kg-1) compared with the other cations. The determination of soil sensitivity to acid rain was calculated by the ratio BC/Al3+ (BC = Ca2+ + Mg2+ + K+) and presented the average value of 5.1 ± 3.3. This preliminary evaluation of soil susceptibility by the ratio BC/Al3+ showed that the local soil and vegetation type (tropical Savannah) were sensitive to acid deposition. The long term of this impacting condition (acid rain, high sulfate deposition) could be harmful to the soil and vegetation quality.
