Technology Reports of Kansai University (ISSN: 04532198) is a monthly peer-reviewed and open-access international Journal. It was first built in 1959 and officially in 1975 till now by kansai university, japan. The journal covers all sort of engineering topic, mathematics and physics. Technology Reports of Kansai University (TRKU) was closed access journal until 2017. After that TRKU became open access journal. TRKU is a scopus indexed journal and directly run by faculty of engineering, kansai university.

Climate change is a factor of surface waters quality deterioration, thus limiting their suitability for agriculture. The study devoted to the evaluation of the waters of the Kakhovka reservoir and irrigation system revealed that climate change resulted in changes in the water quality, namely, the content of total dissolved solids (TDS) in the Kakhovka reservoir water increased from 0.30 g L-1 in 1938 to 0.43 g L-1 in 2018. At the same time, the increase in average air temperature in the growing season led to the increase of the temperatures from 15.9ºC in 1938 to 20.5ºC in 2018. We found out that the increase of air temperature by 1.0ºC leads to the increase in TDS by 0.03 g L-1. Also, there was a tendency to the increase in alkalinity of the waters in the Kakhovka water from 7.60 pH units in 1960 to 8.05 pH units in 2018. The index in the regulated canals of the irrigation system increased to 8.30-8.50 pH units. The content of soda reaches its critical values at high pH – 0.24-0.30 meq L-1 Therefore, the water from the Kakhovka reservoir and irrigation system is limited suitable for irrigation, requiring taking steps for it amelioration and continuous monitoring of the irrigated lands to prevent their degradation
The aim of this study was to determine the BCF and the TF value of heavy metals in Oligochaeta. This study obtained data on heavy metal Cu and Cd pollution that affect soil quality and the potential of Oligochaeta L. terrestris and Pheretrima sp as bioremidiator for Cu and Cd in Jatibarang Landfill. The research method used is field experiment. Samples were then prepared for heavy metal analysis using the ICP MS. The BCF and TF value were calculated using formulas; the BCF value was calculated as the content of heavy metals in oligochaeta divided by the concentration of heavy metals in soil. This study measures and analyzes the concentration of two types of heavy metals, Cooper (Cu) and Cadmium (Cd) from 2 Oligochaeta species in Jatibarang Landfill Semarang Indonesia. The BCF value is the concentration ratio of heavy metals concentration in the organs of the esophagus or the dermis with heavy metals concentration in the soil) and the TF value is the ratio of heavy metals concentration in the dermis and esophagus) Cu on Lumbricus terrestris (3.596 ppm) is higher than Pheretrima sp (1,333 ppm), as well as Cd concentration in L. terestris (0.239 ppm) is higher than Pheretrima sp (0.079 ppm). Based on this research, the BCF and TF value for heavy metals in L. terrestris and Pheretrima sp were > 1 that means that those species are bioaccumulators. The results of the analysis of Cd in soil show the concentration of Cd in soil at site 5 exceeds the limit of the concentration of available metals. The TF values for Cu and Cd the dermis of Pheretrima sp were 0.663-2.072 and 0.185-1.668, and in the esophagus were 0-45.824 and 0-13.5 respectively. The TF values for Cu and Cd in the dermis of L. terestris were 0.103-12.568 and 0-0.598, and in the esophagus 0.355-16.758 and 0-1.307 respectively. The heavy metals from soil were absorbed, transported and accumulate in dermis and esophagus, therefore, L. terestris and Pheretrima sp are good bioremediator particularly Cu and Cd that can be apllied to remediate soil contamination with heavy metals
