A faunistic survey of leaf beetles (Chrysomelidae) was accomplished in Tehran, Alborz and Qazvin provinces of Iran, during 2012 and 2013. In total, 30 species belong to five subfamilies (Chrysomelinae, Cryptocephalinae, Galerucinae, Cassidinae and Criocerinae) and 22 genera were identified.

Airborne particulate matter has been collected by a high volume and a Gent-type stacked filter unit (SFU) low volume sampler
during the 2000-2001 period. The high volume sampler used S&S cellulosic and the SFU two Nuclepore polycarbonate filters to
collect fine and coarse size fractions. The elemental analysis of the collected TSP, fine and coarse particles has been performed
using instrumental neutron activation analysis and atomic absorption spectrometry. Twenty-two trace elements on Nuclepore
and twenty-four elements on S&S filters have been measured. The collected data have been compared with the previous data of
Tehran air and with other cities in the world.

The Ab Ask mineral springs are located 85 km northeast of Tehran, in the southern range of the Damavand volcano. Deposits of these calcareous springs are mainly precipitated as travertine. Petrographical, mineralogical, and stable isotope studies were conducted on different types of travertine to determine their genesis and factors that govern carbonate precipitation. Based on sedimentation consequence and lithofacies these travertines are categorized as first type (fresh travertine), second type (fissure-ridge, dam, and cascade), and third type (laminated) travertines, illustrating a specific condition of formation, deposition and diagenesis. Combined XRD and microscopic investigations show that the Ab Ask travertines are is composed of about 95 % calcite and a minor amount of quartz along with iron oxide impurities. The origin and transport of springs water from which travertine was precipitated are elucidated by 13C and 18O isotopic studies of the travertines. δ18O and δ13C values of travertines increase (from −13.0 to −6.3% VPDB and from 6 to 9.8% VPDB, respectively) with increasing distance from the spring orifice. This significant increase is attributed to temperature decrease, rapid degassing of CO2, and biological activities. It seems that CO2 content of these fluids may have originated from limestone decarbonation. Based on the integrated petrographic and stable isotope study, the Ab Ask travertines can could be thermogenic in origin.
