    Monthly mean satellite derived Chl-a, aerosols, wind, SST, PAR, and turbidity datasets were used to investigate the possible factors regulating phytoplankton variability in the Persian Gulf. The spatial correlation analysis revealed two distinct regions of SST and PAR, and a relatively uniform spatial correlation pattern of the other parameters. The cross correlation between aeolian dusts and Chl-a was significantly positive with 1–3 months offset. The pattern of spatial correlation between Chl-a and SST was positive in the shallow regions without time lag, and was negative with time offset of 3–5 months in deeper regions. The cross correlation between Chl-a and north-ward winds were... 

    Modeling of Biological Matter Cycling in Shallow Lake by System Dynamic Method

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Katirachi, Amir Nasser (Author) ; Abrishamchi, Ahmad (Supervisor)
    Modeling of water quality in shallow lake is the goal of this roject.Matters cycling in environment will be explained. The dissolved Oxygen will be assigned the most important factor in water quality. The phytoplankton Growth rate and fatality rate will be modeled By LOTKAVOLTERRA equations. The nitrification by nitrifying bacteria and Michael Menton equations will be explained. Modeling will be executed By System Dynamic which feedbacks are the most com ponents of it.The model will be built with equations and coefficients in literatures and this model run by VENSIM®software. We will assure by some extreme condition tests about the structure of the model and finally we will make a... 

    Harmful algal blooms (red tide): a review of causes, impacts and approaches to monitoring and prediction

    , Article International Journal of Environmental Science and Technology ; Volume 16, Issue 3 , 2019 , Pages 1789-1806 ; 17351472 (ISSN) Zohdi, E ; Abbaspour, M ; Sharif University of Technology

    Red tide, an impermanent natural phenomenon including harmful algal blooms, causes changing the color of the sea generally to red or almost brown, and has a serious impact on environment along the coast and aquatic ecosystem. Due to recent extensive steady harmful algal blooms events that cause adverse impacts on human healthsome, aquaculture and tourism industry, and the entire economy of the coastal region, the need of society for realizing these phenomena is much greater than the past. In the recent decades, consideration of algal blooms and determination of bloom-former species and fundamental researches about dynamics of blooms are increased worldwide. Development in technology has... 

    A new hybrid inverse modeling method for water quality monitoring using remotely sensed data

    All of the man-made objects and anthropogenic activities related to the oil industries in water bodies (e.g. drilling, equipment installation, construction of oil platfonns and especially oil spillages) have enviromnental impacts on water ecosystems. The assessment of oil field operations and oil platfonns impacts on water quality have become a necessity throughout the world. Phytoplanktons have the lowest trophic level in water enviromnent; therefore the life of all of the other marine animals is highly relevant to phytoplanktonic population. Hence it seems necessary to monitor the spatiotemporal effects of different activities and events, related to oil industries on phytoplanktons.... 

    Diatoms with invaluable applications in nanotechnology, biotechnology, and biomedicine: Recent advances

    , Article ACS Biomaterials Science and Engineering ; Volume 7, Issue 7 , 2021 , Pages 3053-3068 ; 23739878 (ISSN) Rabiee, N ; Khatami, M ; Jamalipour Soufi, G ; Fatahi, Y ; Iravani, S ; Varma, R. S ; Sharif University of Technology

    Diatoms are unicellular microalga found in soil and almost every aquatic environment (marine and fresh water). Biogenic silica and diatoms are attractive for biotechnological and industrial applications, especially in the field of biomedicine, industrial/synthetic manufacturing processes, and biomedical/pharmaceutical sciences. Deposition of silica by diatoms allows them to create micro- or nanoscale structures which may be utilized in nanomedicine and especially in drug/gene delivery. Diatoms with their unique architectures, good thermal stability, suitable surface area, simple chemical functionalization/modification procedures, ease of genetic manipulations, optical/photonic...
