Source Emissions Books

  • Sustain # 31

    Emerging and developing countries will be the source of the majority of greenhouse gas emissions in the future. While some people in many of these countries have experienced triple digit increases in income over the last ten years, many still live on less than US$ 2 a day and rely on traditional means of lighting, heating and  transport and have ...

  • Global Climate Change and U.S. Law

    Because global climate change presents extraordinary challenges to the environment and the economy of United States as well as those of other nations, the debate about how to effectively implement more climate-friendly policies is sure to continue and amplify. The scientific case for strong action is becoming more compelling every month, and ...

  • Air Pollution Control Law: Compliance and Enforcement

    The most comprehensive, up-to-date guide to and analysis of the Clean Air Act (CAA) is now available from the Environmental Law Institute. Authored by George Washington University Law School Prof. Arnold W. Reitze, Jr., one of the most noted authorities on the Act, Air Pollution Control Law: Compliance and Enforcement explains the legislative ...

  • Plasma Spectroscopy

    Papers describe proven methods for enclosing plasma spectroscopic sources so that hazardous materials can be analyzed safely by optical emission spectroscopy. Most papers focus on radioactive materials, but the techniques are applicable to other toxic and hazardous ...

  • Energy Dispersion X-Ray Analysis: X-Ray and Electron Probe Analysis

    Covered in 13 papers are such topics as x-ray spectrometry, detectors, electron probes, and emission sources. An extremely comprehensive ...

  • Global-Regional Linkages in the Earth System

    This book synthesizes current knowledge of regional-global linkages in four regions to demonstrate that study of environmental change on a regional scale can enhance understanding of global-scale environmental changes. The atmospheric circulation over Southern Africa links regional nutrient and pollutant sources to distant sinks affecting both ...

  • Natural Production of Organohalogen Compounds

    This book summarizes the state-of-the-art knowledge on naturally occurring organohalogens, of which more than 3700 are documented. The chapters cover all aspects of this field, including the structural diversity and sources of organohalogens, the mechanisms for their formation and biodegradation, the clinical use of dichloroacetate, and the ...

  • EPA Clamping Down on Ozone Standards

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is preparing to again lower its ozone standard. This action reduces the amount of ozone that is allowed in the air we breathe and thus forces more industrial sources to further reduce their air pollution ...

  • Effective Control of Fugitive Emissions

    With the EPA continually pressuring the industry to reduce emissions, control of fugitives is increasingly important to your overall emissions ...

  • The Role of VLBI in Astrophysics, Astrometry and Geodesy

    A masterly survey of the last 13 years of Very Long Baseline Interferometry, reviewed in light of the most advanced astronomical observations. Topics covered include: Nonthermal emission from extragalactic radio sources; Principles of synchrotron emission in relation to astrophysics; Theory of relativistic jets; Young, powerful radio sources and ...

  • 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. ...

  • Global and Regional Mercury Cycles: Sources, Fluxes and Mass Balances

    Essential themes in the biochemical cycling of mercury are the relative importance of anthropogenic versus natural sources, transformation and migration processes at the local, regional and global scale, global emission inventories of different mercury sources (both point and diffuse) of both natural and anthropogenic origin. In this regard, ...

  • 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 ...

  • The Role of VLBI in Astrophysics, Astrometry and Geodesy

    A masterly survey of the last 13 years of Very Long Baseline Interferometry, reviewed in light of the most advanced astronomical observations. Topics covered include: Nonthermal emission from extragalactic radio sources; Principles of synchrotron emission in relation to astrophysics; Theory of relativistic jets; Young, powerful radio sources and ...

  • Emissions of Air Pollutants

    Well founded and reliable emission data are necessary to implement strategies to investigate and control air pollution caused by the transport and chemical transformation of air pollutants. This book contains a wealth of new information that enables environmental scientists and authorities dealing with air pollution to design methods for measuring ...
