  • Aquatic Biodiversity

    In this age of increased fundamental and applied research on biodiversity, no single volume was as yet devoted to the various temporal and spatial aspects of aquatic biodiversity. The present book is published in honour of Professor Henri Dumont (Ghent, Belgium) at the occasion of his retirement as Editor-in-Chief of Hydrobiologia. The volume ...

  • Aquatic Biodiversity II

    Water is Life. Freshwater is one of the most valuable commodities on our planet, and this resource should be managed in a sustainable way. Yet, we are less than careful in the way we use water and many of our non-marine, aquatic habitats are threatened by anthropogenic impacts. Eutrophication, for example, could well turn into one of the major ...

  • Aquatic Toxicology and Hazard Assessment

    STP 766 presents a discussion of the science's lack of quantitative growth and innovation based on the experience of those dealing in the practical application of aquatic toxicology as decision tools in aquatic toxicology as decision tools in aquatic safety assessment. However the papers contained combat this challenge and express new and ...

  • Treatise on Water Science

    Treatise on Water Science, Four-Volume Set Available online and in print for a limited time Water quality and management are of great significance globally, as the demand for clean, potable water far exceeds the availability. Water science research brings together the natural and applied sciences, engineering, chemistry, law and policy, and ...

  • Aquatic Effects of Acidic Deposition

    The completion of the initial phase of the U.S. National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program (NAPAP) in 1990 marked the end of the largest environmental research and assessment effort to that time. The resulting series of 27 State of Science and Technology (SOS/T) Reports and the NAPAP Integrated Assessment represent a decade of work by hundreds ...

  • Aquatic Toxicology and Hazard Assessment

    The 10th volume in this series begins with a review of aquatic toxicology from its early dealing with acute problems, to its current statue as a mature field of science capable of dealing with long-term and sophisticated issues. The volume also features papers in two sections that address new aspects of aquatic toxicology: 1) bioengineering and ...

  • Aquatic Toxicology and Environmental Fate

    STP 1007 marks the beginning of the second decade of aquatic toxicology as a mature science. Papers address: Large scale cumulative effects of multiple pollution sources on regional communities and populations; effects of spills, storm runoff, and other non routine exposures with complex temporal dynamics; effects of variation in organism ...

  • Methods in Ecosystem Science

    Ecology at the ecosystem level has both necessitated and benefited from new methods and technologies as well as those adapted from other disciplines. With the ascendancy of ecosystem science and management, the need has arisen for a comprehensive treatment of techniques used in this rapidly-growing field. Methods in Ecosystem Science answers that ...

  • Remote Sensing of Aquatic Coastal Ecosystem Processes

    The aquatic coastal zone is one of the most challenging targets for environmental remote sensing. Properties such as bottom reflectance, spectrally diverse suspended sediments and phytoplankton communities, diverse benthic communities, and transient events that affect surface reflectance (coastal blooms, runoff, etc.) all combine to produce an ...

  • Applications of Environmental Aquatic Chemistry: A Practical Guide, Second Edition

    Professionals and students who come from disciplines other than chemistry need a concise, yet reliable guide that explains key concepts in environmental chemistry, from the fundamental science to the necessary calculations for applying them.

  • New Improvements in the Aquatic Ecological Risk Assessment of Fungicidal Pesticides and Biocides

    In Europe, the current data requirements for pesticides and biocides are generally regarded to be suitable for the risk assessment of chemicals with an insecticidal and herbicidal mode of action. However, the effects of fungicides, in particular on freshwater microbial communities, are not well known despite the fact that fungi play a key role in ...

  • Science and Conservation of Vernal Pools in Northeastern North America

    Synthesizes Decades of Research on Vernal Pools Science Pulling together information from a broad array of sources, Science and Conservation of Vernal Pools in Northeastern North America is a guide to the issues and solutions surrounding seasonal pools. Drawing on 15 years of experience, the editors have mined published literature, personal ...

  • Environmental Toxicology and Risk Assessment: Science, Policy, and Standardization-- Implications for Environmental Decisions, 10th Volume

    The latest volume in this ASTM series explores the advancements in the field of environmental toxicology and risk assessment, including methods of carrying scientific findings forward to sound policy decisions. 25 papers in 6 sections cover:Aquatic Toxicology--examines the ionic composition in water used in toxicity tests and how that impacts on ...

  • Limnology and Oceanography e-Lectures

    Developing a new aquatic science course? Time to refresh some aquatic science presentations and are looking for ideas? Need inspiration regarding how to translate key aquatic science issues in a straightforward manner to a diverse or non-specialist ...

  • Water Auditing and Water Conservation, 2nd Edition

    Water auditing is a method of quantifying water flows and quality in simple or complex systems, with a view to reducing water usage and often saving money on otherwise unnecessary water use. There is an increasing awareness around the globe of the centrality of water to our lives. This awareness crosses political and social boundaries. In many ...

  • Source Separation and Decentralization for Wastewater Management

        Is sewer-based wastewater treatment really the optimal technical solution in urban water management? This paradigm is increasingly being questioned. Growing water scarcity and the insight that water will be an important limiting factor for the quality of urban life are main drivers for new approaches in wastewater management. Source Separation ...
