Hydrocarbons are a family of organic chemicals consisting of carbon and hydrogen atoms arranged in a variety of ways. Hydrocarbons are found naturally in crude oil and are released into the environment with its combustion (power plants, home heaters etc).
Petrochemical plants, and especially their process water recovery plants, are a major source of air pollution. If odours are a recurring problem, the emission of greenhouse gases may also be particularly important.
The Earth is warmed principally by the sun’s radiation which enters the atmosphere. However, not all the radiation penetrates the atmosphere as some is scattered back into space. The amount of back-scattering into space alters the amount of energy that is absorbed into the atmosphere. backscattering of this energy provides valuable information on the change of the earth’s radiation balance and how different activities (artificial and anthropogenic) can affect this delicately balanced system and thus...
coastal and hydraulic engineering studies, environmental planning and technical risk analysis for SLR scenarios and adaptation strategies. Coastal impacts of sea level rise are non linear and complex. Simple flood maps don't necessarily answer the important questions that need to be addressed for long term planning and design of ecology based adaptation solutions.
