A methodology for comparing water desalination to competitive fresh water transportation and treatment

, : A methodology for comparing water desalination to competitive fresh water transportation and treatment. Desalination 30(1/2/3): 541-552

The comparison between desalination and other water supply methods is usually based on a conventional economic evaluation which typically takes into account the direct capital and operating costs and utilizes techniques and criteria which differ from designer to designer. While this method is usually adequate when one of the alternative water supply methods is clearly superior, the comparison must be much more systematic and comprehensive where the alternatives are competitive.

Evidence is presented in support of the double structure theory of the blepharoplast and centrosome. When this double structure is represented by the blepharoplast, it is derived from an intranuclear material similar to the nucleolar substance. Wh...

In experiments with excised wheat roots, the uptake and release of 86Rb (K) and 32P was studied in the presence of different concentrations of 2,4-D and MCPA. Ion uptake was not influenced by herbicides at 10-8 to 10-5 M. At 10-4 M active uptake w...
