The surface sediments in the accumulation area consist of brownish gyttja rich in water (on average 90%).
With the help of the CP it is possible to estimate whether a certain spot in the lake sediment surface is situated in an accumulation or erosion zone: CP < 2 means the accumulation area, 2 < CP < 3 means the transition area and CP > 3 means the erosion area (Terasmaa 2005a, 2005b).
There should be two parts to a glacier: an accumulation area
and an ablation area'.
Bahr from the Department of Physics and Computational Sciences, Regis University, US, found that given current accumulation areas
and climate regimes, glaciers will lose about 27 percent of their volume before attaining equilibrium, a state where accumulation equals loss.
36] values characterize the sedimentation area, it is possible to estimate the intervals when the coring sites are situated within the accumulation areas.
36] values that could characterize the accumulation area vary from 0.
Inspectors also observed that the company failed to label and keep containers of waste oil covered, failed to properly label waste oil and hazardous waste accumulation areas
, and failed to properly store and handle volatile organic compounds," the agency said.
The most serious of these included failing to determine whether waste is hazardous, storing incompatible wastes together, failing to prepare manifests for hazardous waste shipped off site, failing to adequately train personnel, mismanagement of waste accumulation areas
, and failing to notify a treatment facility of the appropriate treatment standards.
EPA that NTUA generated between 100 and 1,000 kilograms of hazardous waste each month, failing to properly manage containers of hazardous waste to prevent releases into the environment, and failure to maintain safety and communications equipment in waste accumulation areas
