This poster presents the spatio-temporal assessment of 14 hydro-chemicals at 15 monitoring sites of the Tuul River in Ulaanbaatar city using a dataset between 1998-2008. Human activity has a significant imprint on river water quality. Level of pollution of the river strongly depends on how well water has been treated when discharged from CWTP, means it is a strongest point pollution source in downstream section of the Tuul River.
In museum and archives’ collection environments, fungi are a critical artifact biodeterioration factor, whereas most infections are airborne. Typical fungal infections in museums, colonizing paper made documents, are caused by species of slow-growing Ascomycetes as well as mitosporic xerophilic fungi of the genera Aspergillus, Penicillium and Cladosporium.READ MORE
Our project was to identify a geographic area demonstrating need for asthma interventions. By identifying different factors such as air quality, prevalence, asthma related hospitalizations and emergency department visits, we created a tool to identify and prioritize areas that could benefit from interventions like patient education and certification as an Asthma-Friendly School.
