Assessment of debris inputs from land into the river in the Three Gorges Reservoir Area, China

Abstract

Riverine debris in the Three Gorges Reservoir Area (TGRA) poses a threat to electricity generation, ship navigation, and water environment. Quantifying riverine debris inputs from land into the river is a foundation for modeling of the transport and accumulation of floating debris on the water surface in the TGRA. However, this has not been researched to date. In this study, debris inputs from land into the river in the TGRA were assessed according to the response relationship between debris inputs and surface runoff. The land-based debris inputs in the TGRA were estimated using simulated surface runoff which was simulated by the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model. Results showed that 15.32 × 106 kg of land-based debris was inputted into the main channel of the TGRA in 2015 which accounted for 9.74% of total debris inputs (the monitoring data of river-sourced and land-sourced debris inputs was 157.27 × 106 kg). Debris inputs varied seasonally and peaked in the summer season (July to September). Compared with monthly measured data, the average relative errors in 2015 were below 30%. In addition, areas with higher debris pollution inputs were mainly located in the upper section of the TGRA, between the Tang River Basin and the Long River Basin. The proposed method was tested and determined to be reliable; thus, it can be used to quickly estimate debris inputs from land into the river by surface runoff of the outlets in a river basin. Moreover, this method provides new insight into the estimation of land-based debris inputs into rivers.

Accessory Auricles: Systematic Review of Definition, Associated Conditions, and Recommendations for Clinical Practice

Abstract Accessory auricles are rare congenital abnormalities embryologically derived from the first branchial arch. Presentation may be variable with locations grouped into anatomical zones based on the frequency of location found in the literature. This study reviewed the papers between 1981 and 2017. Findings included an association with syndromes including Goldenhar, VACTERL, Treacher–Collins, Townes–Brocks, and Wolf–Hirschhorn. Based on histological and embryological evidence, the term "accessory auricle" is best used as an umbrella term to define this difference. Finally, indications are provided for imaging and laboratory investigations to guide the physician treating patients with accessory auricles. Address correspondence and reprint requests to Mark S.

A Rare Complication After Septoplasty: Visual Loss Due to Right Retinal Artery Spasm

Abstract Septoplasty is a commonly used procedure for correcting septal cartilage deformities. Hemorrhage, abscesses, scaling, adhesions, and scar tissue are often seen after the operation of the septoplasty, but temporary or permanent visual loss due to local anesthetic use has been reported very rarely in the literature. The authors also aimed to present a female patient with retinal artery spasm in the right eye after septoplasty in this article. A 27-year-old female patient was admitted to the authors' clinic with long-standing nasal obstruction and postnasal drip. There was no feature in her history and also no sign other than nasal septal deviation on physical examination. The patient was informed about the operation and the operation was planned. Emergency eye consultation was requested after the patient said that the right eye of the patient had never seen in the postoperative wake-up hall. Examination by an ophthalmologist; mild exotropia and total loss of vision in the r…

Anti-Neutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibody-Negative Central Nervous System Granulomatosis With Polyangiitis and Its Clinical Characteristics

Abstract Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA) is a necrotizing granulomatous vasculitis occasionally affecting central nervous system (CNS), and GPA patients with initial CNS symptoms are even rarer, whose diagnosis is further confused by an absence of positive antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody. The authors described the characteristics of antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody -negative GPA with CNS onset in a patient and discussed on its management, which may contribute to future diagnosis and treatment of patients with similar conditions.
