This book brings together information that is currently dispersed in the academic literature and within files of ...

  • Salt Intrusion, Tides and Mixing in Multi-Channel Estuaries: PhD: UNESCO-IHE Institute, Delft

    Multi-channel estuaries, such as the Mekong Delta in Vietnam and the Scheldt in the Netherlands, have characteristics of both the river and the sea, forming a unique environment influenced by tidal movements of the sea and freshwater flow of the river. This study addresses a number of knowledge gaps in multi-channel estuaries by developing a ...

  • Advances in Biological and Chemical Terrorism Countermeasures

    Biological and chemical weapons are a growing terrorist threat to the United States and other nations and countermeasures continue to evolve as a national and global priority issue.

  • Predator-Prey Dynamics: The Role of Olfaction

    Humans, being visually oriented, are well versed in camouflage and how animals hide from predators that use vision to locate prey. However, many predators do not hunt by sight, they hunt by scent. This raises the question: do survival mechanisms and behaviors exist which allow animals to hide from these olfactory predators?  If so, what are they, ...

  • Air Quality Modeling: Theories, Methodologies, Computational Techniques, & Available Databases & Software, Vol. I-Fund.-Book

    This is the first volume of a new book series focusing on the evolving field of AIR QUALITY MODELING. This volume takes an in-depth look at the fundamentals of modeling: from a review of air pollution meteorology to an introduction to Gaussian plume models, from a discussion of plume rise formulations to a review of Eulerian grid models. With ...

  • Oil Spill Chemical Dispersants: Research, Experience and Recommendations

    Contains 27 papers divided into four sections: laboratory toxicity and effectiveness testing; field effectiveness; fate and effects; and contingency planning and guidelines. Addresses when dispersants should be used; the results of the dispersant application; and the short-term; and long-term costs to the ...

  • Chemical Dispersants for the Control of Oil Spills

  • Mathematics for Ecology and Environmental Sciences

    Dynamical systems theory in mathematical biology has attracted much attention from many scientific directions. The purpose of this volume is to discuss the many rich and interesting properties of dynamical systems that appear in ecology and environmental sciences. The main topics include population dynamics with dispersal, nonlinear discrete ...

  • Electromagnetic Scattering in Disperse Media

    This is the first book devoted specifically to the problem of light scattering and absorption by inhomogeneous and anisotropic spherical particles. Unlike other books in the field, Electromagnetic Scattering in Disperse Media pays considerable attention to various aspects of light absorption inside particles, including internal field ...

  • Flow and Transport Processes with Complex Obstructions

    The monograph is the first book that reviews a variety of problems in different fluid mechanics disciplines that led to the concept of canopy, or penetrable roughness. Despite their diversity, many flows may be theoretically united by means of introducing distributed sinks and/or sources of momentum and heat and mass. Terrestrial vegetation, ...

  • Wind Climate in Cities

    If one surveys the development of wind engineering, one comes to the conclusion that the challenge of urban climatology is one of the most important remaining tasks for the wind engineers. But what distinguishes wind engineering in urban areas from conventional wind engineering? Principally, the fact that the effects studied are usually ...
