    Abstract: Background: Drinking water should be harmless to its consumers and aspects such as appearance, taste and/or odor should be acceptable. In Burkina Faso, the sold bottled and sachet drinking waters are not always respecting the quality in terms of potability. Method: In this study we investigated the appearance, taste and/or odor of eleven (11) selec... Show More

    Published: 31 January 2020
    Abstract: Titan, the giant moon of the planet Saturn, is recognized to have meteorological processes involving liquid methane that are analogous to the water generated atmospheric dynamics of planet Earth. We propose here that the climatic features of Titan by contrast are more akin to those of the planet Venus, and that this structural similarity is a direc... Show More

    Abstract: Hydrological modeling of ungauged basins is important and imperative for policymakers and stakeholders in water management. The Kayanga river upstream from the Niandouba dam is subject to extreme pressure caused by natural and anthropogenic factors. The hydro system Niandouba Dam and Confluent Dam are used to providing water for the irrigated perim... Show More
