Thermophotovoltaic Generation of Electricity

by Springer

The conference included various aspects of thermophotovoltaics, including systems, emitters, and cells. Key papers also dealt with TPV modules, recovery of high-temperature industrial waste heat, stand-alone gas furnaces, and military applications. TPV operates on the same physical principles as photovoltaics. However, it uses infrared radiation ...;

The Spatial Distribution of Microbes in the Environment

by Springer

Microbes are very small and, as individuals, are capable of influencing a portion of the environment only slightly larger than their own body size, i.e., a few microns. However, their impact on the landscape is enormous, and ecosystem processes such as organic matter decomposition, denitrification, and metal oxidation/reduction are measured on ...;

TiO2 Nanotube Arrays

by Springer

TiO2 Nanotube Arrays: Synthesis, Properties, and Applications is the first book to provide an overview of this rapidly growing field. Vertically oriented, highly ordered TiO2 nanotube arrays are unique and easily fabricated materials with an architecture that demonstrates remarkable charge transfer as well as photocatalytic properties. This volume ...;

Computational Atmospheric Acoustics

by Springer

Noise from cars, trains, and aeroplanes can be heard at large distances from the source. Accurate predictions of the loudness of the noise require accurate computations of sound propagation in the atmosphere. This book describes models that can be used for these computations. The models take into account complex effects of the atmosphere and ...;

Treatment of cooling water

by Springer

Many cooling systems use water as cooling medium. They are found in public buildings, industrial production systems or power plants. Almost every cooling system using water is degraded by deposition, corrosion and microbiological fouling.This book identifies the whole bunch of problems due to water cooling systems and proposes specific solutions ...;

Introduction to Wind Energy Systems

by Springer

Authors have tried to strike a balance between a short book chapter and a very detailed book for subject experts. There were three prime reasons behind doing so: first, the field is quite interdisciplinary and requires simplified presentation for a person from non-parent discipline. Second reason for this short-version of a full book is that both ...;

Climate Change and Food Security

by Springer

Roughly a billion people around the world continue to live in state of chronic hunger and food insecurity. Unfortunately, efforts to improve their livelihoods must now unfold in the context of a rapidly changing climate, in which warming temperatures and changing rainfall regimes could threaten the basic productivity of the agricultural systems on ...;

Human energy requirements. Report of a Joint FAO/WHO/UNU Expert Consultation. Rome, 17-24 October 2001 (+CD-ROM) (English)

by Earthprint Ltd

Series: FAO Food and Nutrition Technical Report SeriesSince 1949, FAO has convened groups of experts to evaluate current scientific knowledge in order to define human energy requirements and propose dietary energy recommendations for populations. The World Health Organization joined this initiative in the early 1960s, followed by the United ...;
