  • Global Glacier Changes: Facts and Figures

    Glaciers are a critical component of the earth’ system and the current accelerated melting and retreat of glaciers have severe impacts on the environment. ‘’Global Glacier Changes: facts and figures' presents the latest fluctuations of glaciers and ice caps and underlines the overall trend of glaciers’ retreat.The report, ...

  • Reactive Nitrogen in the Environment: Too much or too little of a good thing

    About 40 percent of the human population depends upon food production made possible by synthetic nitrogen fertilizers.Combustion of fossil fuels adds more reactive nitrogen to air, water and soil. This distortion of the global nitrogen cycle due to excessive reactive nitrogen in the environment, while raising agricultural yields, causes ...

  • Case Study Country Reports in Morocco

    Following the example set by the other signatory developing countries, with effect from March 1 997 Morocco is obliged to provide, in accordance with Article 12, 'national inventories of anthropogenic emissions from sources and absorption by sinks of all greenhouse gases not controlled by the Montreal Protocol, using comparable methods which will ...

  • Case Study Country Reports in Tanzania

    This report is the national inventory of Tanzania, and presents the findings of the study team. A base line inventory of sources and sinks of greenhouse gases for Tanzania is being presented. While a lot of gaps do exist in the data available and that which is required for a detailed inventory, the work highlights areas where further research is ...

  • GEMS Environment Library No. 05: The Contamination of Food

    The UNEP/FAO/ WHO Food Contamination Monitoring Programme (GEMS/Food) has been collecting data on food contamination through a network of participating institutes since 1976. In 1988, data from the monitoring programme and other sources covering the years 1971—85 were compiled, analysed and published by GEMS as a joint UNEP/FAO/ WHO document ...

  • Air Pollution XXVI

    Dealing with issues related to the modelling, monitoring and management of air pollution, this book includes papers presented at the 26th International Conference on Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution. The papers from this conference continue a wide ranging collection of high quality research works that develop the fundamental ...

  • Industrial Air Pollution Monitoring

    Developed from a short course taught at Leeds University, this book covers methods of monitoring emissions of air pollutants from stationary sources. It surveys the techniques and points out their advantages and disadvantages. ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories

    International concern for the continued growth of greenhouse gas emissions, and the potentially damaging consequences of resultant global climate change, led to the signing of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change by 155 nations at the Earth Summit in June 1992. The Convention came into force on 21 March 1994, three months ...

  • Climate Change: Significance for Agriculture and Forestry

    Societies throughout the world depend on food, fiber and forest products. Continuity and security of agricultural and forest production are therefore of paramount importance. Predicted changes in climate could be expected to alter, perhaps significantly, the levels and relative agricultural and forestry production of different nations over ...

  • Nonpoint Source Pollution Regulation: Issues and Analysis

    The book provides an overview of recent advances in the theoretical analysis of NPS pollution and regulation from an economic perspective. Besides specific policy recommendations, a common theme in the essays is the attempt to suggest regulatory approaches starting from the recognition of the problems of incomplete information encountered ...

  • Dayside and Polar Cap Aurora

    The auroral emissions in the upper atmosphere of the polar regions of the Earth are evidence of the capture of energetic particles from the Sun, streaming by the Earth as the solar wind. These auroral emissions, then, are a window to outer space, and can provide us with valuable information about electrodynamic coupling processes between the solar ...
