ABSTRACT
Information on the physical geography and climate of ancient Rome is presented. It is mentioned that the Tiber River site in Italy, played a major role in enhancing Rome's trade as it was easily navigable which favored trade conditions. It is stated that Rome was bounded to regions that were rich in mineral deposits, farmlands and harbors which further proved to be beneficial for Rome.

    Phosphorus (P) in runoff can pose a water quality risk in phosphate mine reclamation areas. High dissolved P (DP) concentrations (about 0.4–3.0 mg L−1) in runoff from these areas and high equilibrium P concentrations for the soils led us to hypothesize that P release is controlled...
