    Abstract: The absolute salinity of seawater can be assessed by conductivity measurements and the calculation of a practical salinity, or by density measurements. The effect of low concentrations of suspended particulate matter on these measurements has never been documented, but the theories developed to explain and predict the conductivity of sediments show...

    Abstract: Imagine that your water service provider gives your family at the end of the year $70 as a result of non-revenue water. Indeed, it is the value of Palestinian non-revenue water for year 2015; where, it was equivalent to a deposit $13 for each individual person. Due to its importance, this paper empirically evaluates the determinants of non-revenue ... Show More
