  • Environmental Chemistry

    Environmental chemistry is a new, fast developing science aimed at deciphering fundamental mechanisms ruling the behaviour of pollutants in ecosystems. Applying this knowledge to current environmental issues leads to the remediation of environmental media, and to new, low energy, low emission, sustainable processes. This book describes the ...

  • Environmental Policy Analyses

    There is no doubt that environmental policies have developed enormously from the beginning of the eighties up until now. These policies have served as a test ground for many policy concepts, which have been implemented in other areas since the beginning of the nineties: in evaluation, monitoring, implementation improvement schemes, contracting or ...

  • Environmental Hydrology, Second Edition

    The technological advances of recent years include the emergence of new remote sensing and geographic information systems that are invaluable for the study of wetlands, agricultural land, and land use change. Students, hydrologists, and environmental engineers are searching for a comprehensive hydrogeologic overview that supplements information on ...

  • Models of Economic Growth with Environmental Assets

    This book considers the implications of models of economic growth for the debate on sustainability. The interplay between economic and ecological systems is analyzed, also taking into account issues of equity and risk.

  • Compound-specific Stable Isotope Analysis

    The use of Compound-specific Stable Isotope Analysis (CSIA) is increasing in many areas of science and technology for source allocation, authentication, and characterization of transformation reactions. Until now, there have been no textbooks available for students with an analytical chemical background or basic introductory books emphasising the ...

  • Handbook of Soil Analysis

    This handbook is a reference guide for selecting and carrying out numerous methods of soil analysis. It is written in accordance with analytical standards and quality control approaches.It covers a large body of technical information including protocols, tables, formulae, spectrum models, chromatograms and additional analytical diagrams. The ...

  • Both Sides of the Border

    This volume complements Shared Space: Rethinking the U.S.-Mexico Border Environment, edited by Lawrence Herzog and Environmental Management on North America's Borders, edited by Richard Kiy and John Wirth. This volume expands the range of issues addressed in previous volumes as well as focuses on comprehensive assessments of cooperative efforts of ...

  • Integrated Policymaking for Sustainable Development, A Reference Manual

    This book is designed to enable policy and decision makers, policy analysts, and other actors involved in policy making processess to appreciate the full value of Integrated Policymaking in its environmental, social and economic dimensions. It draws on decades of experience acquired by UNEP and other organizations in sustainablilty-motivated ...

  • Practical Sedimentology

    The new edition of this successful text is designed to provide an introduction to, and a concise review of principles and interpretations related to sedimentary process, environments, and deposits. The book emphasizes application over theory and features many summary tables and figures, as well as extensive and up-to-date references. The ...

  • Mechanics of Poroelastic Media

    In Mechanics of Poroelastic Media the classical theory of poroelasticity developed by Biot is developed and extended to the study of problems in geomechanics, biomechanics, environmental mechanics and materials science. The contributions are grouped into sections covering constitutive modelling, analytical aspects, numerical modelling, and ...

  • Frames in the Toxicity Controversy

    There is a great deal of controversy about how to deal with man-made chemicals. Environmentalists and industrialists throughout the world clash on such subjects as chlorine, PVC, endocrine disrupters and the precautionary principle. In this book Tukker untangles the controversy. Three chapters relate to long-term evaluations into two ...

  • Innovations in Chemical Biology

    The growing role of chemistry, combined with the contribution of chemical and pharmaceutical industries to the science of mankind, are continuously advancing. The system for training researchers in the various areas of chemistry has maintained a largely traditional and single disciplinary focus, although many investigators have broadened their ...

  • Earth Paleoenvironments: Records preserved in Mid- and Low-Latitude Glaciers

    Glaciers provide an unparalleled tool for studying global environmental change. This book is the first of its kind concentrating on the paleoenvironmental record archived in mid- and low-latitude glaciers. By concentrating mainly on the last 500 years of these records, we can now see that laws enacted to protect our environment in Europe and North ...

  • Phenological Research

    As climate change continues to dominate the international environmental agenda, phenology – the study of the timing of recurring biological events – has received increasing research attention, leading to an emerging consensus that phenology can be viewed as an ‘early warning system’ for climate change impact.A multidisciplinary science involving ...
