【張志洪】
論文所在:http://www.episodes.org/index.php/epi/article/viewFile/62481/48747
論文題目:The socio-economic benefits of establishing National Geoparks in China
雑誌:Episodes, Vol. 26, no. 4, December 2003
著者:Zhao Xun, Zhao Ting
概要:Since 2000, based on a wealth of geological heritage sites and experience with their conservation, China has formally approved the establishment of forty four National Geoparks, whose distribution and characteristics are dominated by structural setting and neotectonism. Conserving and developing the sites have brought about favorable social, economic and environmental benefits, and created a positive climate for their inclusion in the world Geopark network under the patronage of UNESCO. Geological sites record the important physical phenomena from which we can trace the evolutionary history of the Earth. They serve as an avenue for the understanding of the Earth’s 4,600 Ma-history, and are the only source providing essential information on the Earth’s evolutionary changes and processes. In this connection, people regard geological sites as an invaluable legacy bestowed by Mother Earth and name them a ‘geological heritage’. Safeguarding and treasuring this heritage, which, once lost can never be recovered, has become a matter of common concern for the people of the global village. The history of the study and conservation of geological remains can be traced back to ancient times. But because of underdevelopment of science and technology, no scientific answers were available then to the mysteries hidden within these phenomena, and the conservation efforts were spontaneous. Scientific research on geological remains and the progressive recognition of their significance are in a real sense the outcome of the Industrial Revolution and the development of modern science. From ignorance to science, and from spontaneity to consciousness, there is an endless progression.

題目:Flux characteristics of total dissolved iron and its species during extreme rainfall event in the midstream of the Heilongjiang River
雑誌:Journal of Environmental Sciences
   Volume 30, 1 April 2015, Pages 74–80
著者:Jiunian Guan, Baixing Yan, Hui Zhu, Lixia Wang, Duian Lu, Long Cheng
概要:The occurrence of extreme rainfall events and associated flooding has been enhanced due to climate changes, and is thought to influence the flux of total dissolved iron (TDI) in rivers considerably. Since TDI is a controlling factor in primary productivity in marine ecosystems, alteration of riverine TDI input to the ocean may lead to climate change via its effect on biological productivity. During an extreme rainfall event that arose in northeastern China in 2013, water samples were collected in the midstream of the Heilongjiang River to analyze the concentration and species of TDI as well as other basic parameters. The speciation of TDI was surveyed by filtration and ultrafiltration methods. Compared with data monitored from 2007 to 2012, the concentration of TDI increased significantly during this event, with an average concentration of 1.11 mg/L, and the estimated TDI flux reached 1.2 × 105 tons, equaling the average annual TDI flux level. Species analysis revealed that low-molecular-weight complexed iron was the dominant species, and the impulse of TDI flux could probably be attributed to the hydrological connection to riparian wetlands and iron-rich terrestrial runoff. Moreover, dissolved organic matter played a key role in the flux, species and bioavailability of TDI. In addition, there is a possibility that the rising TDI flux could further influence the transport and cycling of nutrients and related ecological processes in the river, estuary coupled with the coastal ecosystems, which merits closer attention in the future.

題目:The mechanism of iron removal in estuaries
雑誌::Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta
   Volume 41, Issue 9, September 1977, Pages 1313–1324
著者::E.A. Boyle, J.M. Edmond and E.R. Sholkovitz
概要:
A survey of U.S. east coast estuaries confirms that large-scale rapid removal of iron from river water is a general phenomenon during estuarine mixing.
The river-borne ‘dissolved’ iron consists almost entirely of mixed iron oxide-organic matter colloids, of diameter less than 0.45 μm, stabilized by the dissolved organic matter.
Precipitation occurs on mixing because the seawater cations neutralize the negatively charged iron-bearing colloids allowing flocculation.
The process has been duplicated in laboratory experiments using both natural filtered and unfiltered river water and a synthetic colloidal goethite in 0.05 μm filtered water.
The colloidal nature of the iron has been further confirmed by ultracentrifugation and ultrafiltration.
A major consequence of the precipitation phenomena is to reduce the effective input of ‘dissolved’ iron to the ocean by about 90% of the primary river value, equivalent to a concentration of less than 1 μmol per liter of river water.
