    Comprehensive Environmental Mass Spectrometry

    Mass spectrometry is the most sensitive, rapid and informative analytical tool available. In full colour throughout, this book describes the power of this technique in resolving environmental issues, demonstrating how real-world complex problems can be solved in a simple and elegant way. The book begins with the general principles of mass ...

  • The Toxicology and Biochemistry of Insecticides

    The first book in two decades to address this multi-faceted field, The Toxicology and Biochemistry of Insecticides provides the most up-to-date information on insecticide classification, formulation, mode of action, resistance, metabolism, environmental fate, and regulatory legislation. The book draws on the author’s groundbreaking research in ...

  • 2002 Report of the Aerosols, Sterilants, Miscellaneous Uses and Carbon Tetrachloride Technical Options Committee ( ATOC)

    In 1981, in response to the growing scientific consensus that chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and halons would deplete the ozone layer, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) began negotiations to develop multilateral protectionof the ozone layer. These negotiations resulted in the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer, ...

  • Protecting the Ozone Layer Volume 5: Aerosols, Sterilants, Carbon Tetrchloride and miscellaneous uses

    This report considers CFC uses in aerosol products, as sterilants and in a range of miscellaneous applicatoins including food freezing, tobacco expansion, fumigation and cancer therapy. It also covers the use of carbon ...

  • SBTPOL Aerosols, Sterilants, Miscellaneous Uses, and Carbon Tetrachloride Update

    A guide to sources of technologies, equipment and products that reduce or eliminate ODS in aerosol, sterilants, miscellaneous uses and carbon tetrachloride applications. This is part of a 6-volume sourcebook series designed to help Article 5 countries with identifying and selecting appropriate technical ...

  • Composite Materials: Fatigue and Fracture, 3rd Volume

    38 papers by authors from universities, government, and industry give a balanced presentation on these subjects: • Matrix Cracking and Delamination• Interlaminar Fracture Toughness• Delamination Analysis• Strength and Impact• Fatigue and Fracture. For aircraft designers, researchers in aerospace materials, composite ...

  • Solar Variability and Planetary Climates

    Variations in solar activity, as revealed by variations in the number of sunspots, have been observed since ancient times. To what extent changes in the solar output may affect planetary climates, though, remains today more than ever a subject of controversy. In 2000, the SSSI volume on Solar Variability and Climate reviewed the to-date ...

  • Nucleation and Atmospheric Aerosols 2000

    Conference attendees from about 30 countries met to present research results and discuss current issues in the fields of topospheric and stratospheric aerosols and nucleation phenomena. Specifically addressed are aerosol and nucleation mechanisms affecting ice formation, cloud droplet formation and growth, aerosol-cloud interactions, and aerosol ...

  • The Forgotten Pollution

    The increasing pace of industrialization throughout the world has brought with it a serious and ever increasing threat from air pollution. It is true that this threat is being taken seriously, and that many responsible research workers, government advisors and others are working towards its reduction. But air pollution seems to have something ...

  • Physical and Chemical Properties of Aerosols

    An aerosol is a suspension of fine particles in a gas, usually air, and is generally taken to include both solid and liquid particles with dimensions ranging from a few nanometres up to around 100 micrometres in diameter. Aerosol sicence is the study of the physics and chemistry of aerosol behaviour and this includes techniques of generating ...

  • Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere for Environmental Security

    Recent ecological disasters make human beings aware of changes in the Earth’s climate. At the present time anthropogenic activities lead to the emission of greenhouse gases, pollutants, aerosols and ozone depleting substances and the scientific community in general feels responsible for understanding how changes in atmospheric chemistry can affect ...

  • Marine Chemistry

    The carbon dioxide absorption and gas exchange at the sea surface, marine aerosols and their photochemistry, the oceanic carbon cycle as well as biomarkers in marine ecosystems, and related topics are of primary importance for understanding our global ecosystem. The topics addressed in this volume are all stemming from areas which have developed ...

  • Role of Interfaces in Environmental Protection

    The book highlights the colloidal and biocolloidal aspects of environmental pollution and technologies to monitor, remediate, abate and prevent pollution. The solution to the majority of environmental problems is closely connected with interfacial phenomena. The behaviour and transport of dispersed particles in the environment, the main phase ...

  • Optics of Cosmic Dust

    Initially this book focuses on the chemical and morphological properties of dust particles, both cosmological and terrestrial, and some of techniques used to gain information. When light or other electromagnetic radiation interacts with dust or other particles it is scattered in all directions. The scattering interaction are relevant to many ...

  • Ocean Waves Breaking and Marine Aerosol Fluxes

    The energy flow from the atmosphere to the ocean generates an aerodynamically rough ocean surface. If the energy flow is sufficiently strong, in some points of the surface, waves loose their stability and eventually break in the form of whitecaps of various scales. The turbulence associated with the breakers produce the aerosols in the form of jet ...

  • The Kleiner Feldberg Cloud Experiment 1990

    The physical and chemical properties and processes of clouds are of great interest from a variety of perspectives, such as acid deposition, oxidant chemistry, and radiative transfer in the atmosphere. The Kleiner Feldberg Cloud Experiment was conducted in October--November 1990 at the field observatory of Kleiner Feldberg near Frankfurt, ...
