How water is cleaned up

How Water is Cleaned Up

  • Every Drop has been used by a human 10 times.

  • No telling how many times by animals, plants and insects.

  • Almost every virus, bacteria, and element has been in, or touching this water

  • We stay the wet planet because the water is contnuously recycling and cleaning

The numbers in parentheses refer to volumes of water in millions of cubic kilometers, and the fluxes adjacent to the arrows are in millions of cubic kilometers of water per year.

The need to supplement

The Need to Supplement

  • Man’s role in destroying the System

    • Pollution-Acid Rain

    • Paving

    • Erosion

    • Overuse

  • Increasing Population

  • Each Country needs to be a Complete System

  • Wars, Poverty and Drought

  • Green Cross International

Problems close to home

Problems Close to Home

  • While the US has plenty of water, it is often not where we need it.

  • Our Rivers and Aquifers are Drying up

  • We have the money to solve the problems, but Mexico does not.

  • Problems between states and political groups are already cropping up. (the pun is intended as Farmers are losing out)

progression of the bubble evolution; the emitted sound is plotted on the right in each frame. The drop diameter is 3 mm, and its velocity at impact is 2 m/s. No sound or bubble is produced at drop impact (b). The bubble first appears in (g), just as sound emission sets in. (From A. Prosperetti, L. A. Crum, H. C. Pumphrey, Journal of Geophysical Research 94, 3255, 1989.)

A drop falling on a water surface can create a bubble whose oscillations are audible as the sound of rain. Frames (a)-(j) show the

Water disturbance

Water Disturbance

Air entrainment in an 11-cm-diameter cylinder partially filled with a water-glycerol mixture and shaken at resonance frequency (8.1 Hz).[i] The air-liquid interface is dark in these pictures due to the light reflection. After many oscillations, the elevated fluid mass in the center of the cylinder has enough kinetic energy to form a void when falling down (a-d). The cavity is then pinched off (e-g), leaving behind a stream of microbubbles. Upward and downward jets develop (h-i). The upward jet eventually shoots fluid into the air, and the downward jet pierces the big cavity (j-o). (Movie taken by Marijn Sandtke, physics of fluids group, University of Twente.) [i] 5. B. W. Zeff, B. Kleber, J. Fineberg, D. P. Lathrop, Nature 403, 401 (2000).

Mechanical cavitation

Mechanical Cavitation

Cavitating bubbles generated by a fast ship propeller. Such bubbles can damage the propeller when they collapse next to it. (Photo by G. Kuiper, Marin, the Netherlands.)

The measured sound emission. (Adapted from ref. 9.)

The measured and calculated bubble radius. The points are the measured data; the solid line shows assumed pressure reduction P(t) due to the jet.

The corresponding sound emission Ps from the bubble, calculated from equation 3.

Frames taken every 0.5 ms from a high-speed video recording capture the claw closure of a snapping shrimp. A fast water jet is emitted and generates cavitation. In the last frame, the bubble has collapsed; only microbubbles remain.

The water cycles role

The Water Cycles Role

  • The combination of evaporation, condensation, ice formation, rain, percolation, aeration, and all of the other ingredients provide the most cleaning and sterilizing of water.

  • Man has to supplement this process as population grows.

Wastewater treatment

Wastewater Treatment

  • One of the cheapest ways to have more water available is to treat waste water.

  • It is required to maintain the environment

  • It is required by other participants in the water flow.

  • It usually has known problems

Polluted water treatment

Polluted Water Treatment

  • Oil, PCB’s, gasoline additives and radiation all spoil some water, some for long periods of time.

  • Plants and Animals are also impacted

  • Often involves huge amounts of water in difficult places.

  • A low-cost solution could include cavitation via ultrasound

Ocean water treatment

Ocean Water Treatment

  • Desalination-expensive and only practical for cities on the coast.

  • Many poor countries will never be able to afford the process or the transportation.

  • Much of our lake water and aquifer water is now becoming salty due to improper casing and capping of oil wells.

Overuse of resources

Overuse of Resources

  • Aral Sea-Now produces toxic dust

  • Ogallala Aquifer-Wells are deeper and there is more turbidity

  • Rio Grande-Entire ecosystem endangered due to over use-No water reaches the gulf and the estuaries are dying.

  • Salton Sea-Now a water source for San Diego, drying up and promising to become the next Aral Sea.

Still we have water

Still We Have Water

  • Good Enough We can Treat it to Potable Standards-in most of the world

  • The Price of Obtaining and Treating is Continually Rising-

  • Much of the World is Falling Behind

  • Standards are being Lowered

  • Health is being Impacted

  • Politics are being Impacted

  • Major Changes are Just Ahead

    • Destruction of Water Processing Facilities

    • Changes in Aquifers

  • Flooding and Drought

  • Local Impact with Regional/Global Implications

Desalination is part of the solution

Desalination is Part of the Solution

  • “If we could ever competitively, at a cheap rate, get freshwater from seawater, that would be in the long-range interests of humanity [and] would dwarf any other scientific advance.”

  • “It can do more to raise men and women from lives of poverty than any other scientific advance.”-John F. Kennedy
