Use of Chlorofluorocarbons in Hydrology

by The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)

Development of the chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) technique as a tool for dating groundwater has occurred over the past 20 years, and a number of research publications have documented its use in specific aquifers. This publication is intended to facilitate a comparative analysis of CFC and isotope techniques and a wider use of the CFC technique under ...;

The Greenhouse Gas Protocol - A Corporate Reporting and Accounting Standard

by Earthprint Ltd

This revised edition of the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard is the culmination of a two-year multi-stakeholder dialogue, designed to build on experience gained from using the first edition. It includes additional guidance, case studies, appendices, and a new chapter on setting a GHG target. ;

The Kyoto Protocol

by Springer

The adoption of the Kyoto Protocol in December 1997 was a major achievement in the endeavour to tackle the problem of global climate change at the dawn of the 21st century. After many years of involvement in the negotiation process, the book's two internationally recognised authors now offer the international community a first hand and inside ...;

Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Subsidence: Causes, Consequences, and Strategies

by Springer

Greenhouse-induced climate warming increasingly appears to be a reality, and the warming climate will be accompanied by an accelerated sea level rise - as much as 60-100 cm over the next century. What is commonly absent in the discussion of rising sea level, however, is the role played by the subsidence of low-lying coastal areas, which can ...;

Climate in Peril : a popular guide to the latest IPCC reports

by Earthprint Ltd

Warming of the climate system is beyond argument, as shown by observations of increases in average air and ocean temperatures, the widespread melting of snow and ice, and rising global sea levels. But as the messages from scientists become increasingly explicit, the gap between the need for action they project and the climate policy the world ...;

The Continental-Scale Greenhouse Gas Balance of Europe

by Springer

This book assesses the current greenhouse gas (GHG) monitoring capabilities of Europe, identifies and quantifies the uncertainties involved, and outlines the direction to a continental scale GHG monitoring network. The chapters provide a synthesis, based on current research results, of the European greenhouse gases budget, including both ...;

2002 Report of the Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heat Pumps Technical Options Committee (RTOC)

by Earthprint Ltd

In the last decade, the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump industry made tremendous technical progress and complied with the Montreal Protocol through phasing out CFCs and in several applications, HCFCs as well. The mobile air conditioning and the demestic refrigeration industries have shifted rapidly from CFC-12 to non-ODS ...;

Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage

by Cambridge University Press

This IPCC Special Report describes sources, capture, transport, and storage of CO2. It discusses the costs, economic potential, and societal issues of the technology, including public perception and regulatory aspects. Storage options evaluated include geological storage, ocean storage, and mineral carbonation. The report places CO2 capture and ...;

Potential Impacts of Climate Change on Tropical Forest Ecosystems

by Springer

Climate change represents one of the most alarming long-term threats to ecosystems the world over. This new collection of papers provides, for the first time, an overview of the potentially serious impact that climate change may have on tropical forests. The authors, a multi-disciplinary group of leading experts in climatology, forestry, ...;

Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases: Scientific Understanding, Control and Implementation

by Springer

In the climate change discussion, non-CO2 greenhouse gases (NCGGs) received official political recognition for the first time in 1997, when agreement was reached on the Kyoto Protocol. As a result methane, nitrous oxide, HFCs, PFCs and SF6 now provide attractive options for detailing the national targets for the reduction of greenhouse gas ...;
