  • Arsenic Contamination in the World

    Arsenic Contamination in the World: an International Sourcebook provides a global compendium of cited arsenic occurrences in the world as they affect public health. This book details arsenic contamination by source, region and arsenic-affected country. Arsenic is identified in 105 countries and territories, representing a larger database than any ...

  • Arsenic in Groundwater: Poisoning and Risk Assessment

    The main focus of Arsenic in Groundwater: Poisoning and Risk Assessment is to explore the untold stories of groundwater arsenic in view of its poisonous nature for human health, social implications, exposure and risk assessment, worldwide concentrations with space-time dimension, micro level GIS application in spatial arsenic concentration, policy ...

  • Groundwater Arsenic Remediation

    Arsenic abatement from groundwater in locations with a central water distribution system is relatively simple. The real challenge is selecting the most effective and affordable treatment and scale up option for locations which lack the appropriate infrastructure. Groundwater Arsenic Remediation: Treatment Technology and Scale UP provides the ...

  • Best Practice Guide on the Control of Arsenic in Drinking Water

    This Best Practice Guide on the Control of Arsenic in Drinking Water arises from the knowledge collected by the European Research Network COST Action 637 involving 27 European countries and the USA. Besides the large number of important papers, reports and reviews already available on various aspects of arsenic occurrence in environment, water and ...

  • Arsenic Exposure and Health Effects V

    The authoritative articles in this book represent the state-of-the-art in arsenic research. Arsenic experts from around the world - participants in the Fifth International Conference on Arsenic Exposure and Health Effects organized by the Society for Environmental Geochemistry and Health in 2002 - present their critical findings. The authors share ...

  • In-Situ Remediation of Arsenic-Contaminated Sites

    This textbook provides an introduction, the scientific background, case studies and future perspectives of in-situ arsenic remediation technologies for soils, soil water and groundwater at geogenic and anthropogenic contaminated sites. The case studies present in-situ technologies about natural arsenic, specifically arsenate and arsenite, but also ...

  • Arsenic and Arsenic Compounds

    This book evaluates the risks to human health and the environment posed by arsenic and arsenic compounds. Arsenic is widely distri-buted in the earth's crust and is emitted into the atmosphere by coal-fired power generation plants and volcanic activity. Inorganic arsenic of geological origin is found in groundwater used as drinking-water in ...

  • Natural Arsenic in Groundwaters of Latin America

    Groundwater resources naturally contain rather high levels of arsenic in many parts of the world. During the last two decades, the As-containing groundwater in South-East Asia has received much attention. However, the situation seems to be equally important in Latin America, where the number of studies is still relatively low, and the extent and ...

  • Metal Metabolism in Aquatic Environments

    Metal Metabolism in Aquatic Environments is a synthesis of recent developments in the field of metal ecotoxicology and features a number of contemporary issues arising from the interaction of metals and biota, such as pathways of assimilation and food chain transfer, metal accumulation and detoxification in humans and biotransformation of ...

  • Strict and Facultative Anaerobes: Medical and Environmental Aspects

    Strict and Facultative Anaerobes: Medical and Environmental Aspects reviews all aspects of anaerobic bacteria, highlighting their environmental and medical importance. The first three chapters focus on taxonomy, anaerobic metabolism and the genetic regulation of anaerobic processes in strict and facultative anaerobes. The next section includes an ...

  • Arsenic in Ground Water

    Potable water supplies that contain arsenic concentrations high enough to pose a human health hazard are a problem of international proportion. Surface water and ground water are both at risk of arsenic contamination. However, most incidences of high concentrations of arsenic have been reported for ground water, which is the subject of this book. ...

  • Fracture Analysis: Proceedings of the 1973 National Symposium on Fracture Mechanics: Part II

    The 1973 National Symposium on Fracture Mechanics was held at the University of Maryland Conference Center, College Park, Md., 27-29 Aug. 1973. The symposium was sponsored by the American Society for Testing and Materials through Committee E24 on Fracture Testing of Metals. Members of the Symposium Subcommittee of Committee E24 selected papers for ...

  • Arsenic and Old Mustard: Chemical Problems in the Destruction of Old Arsenical and `Mustard´ Munitions

    More than ten million 'poison gas' shells, mortar bombs, etc., lie hidden in Europe, many of them relics from World War I. Some were fired and failed to detonate, others were abandoned in old ammunition dumps. Most retain their load of chemical warfare (CW) agents. They are turned up daily in the course of farming and construction. Many ...

  • Geodesy - the Challenge of the 3rd Millennium

    Geodesy as the science which determines the figure of the earth, its orientation in space and its gravity field as well as its temporal changes, produces key elements in describing the kinematics and the dynamics of the deformable body 'earth'. It contributes in particular to geodynamics and opens the door to decode the complex interactions ...

  • Sea-Dumped Chemical Weapons: Aspects, Problems and Solutions

    The ecological threat posed by the more than 300,000 tonnes of chemical weapons dumped in the sea after the Second World War is one that demands the urgent attention of the international community. The amount dumped represents more than three times as much as the total reported chemical arsenals of the United States and Russia. The munitions ...

  • Remediation Hydraulics

    In situ treatments involving the arrangement of contact between prospective reactants in complex porous media require a refined understanding of solute migration. However, the tools and methods used to predict and control fluid movement in the subsurface need significant improvement. Practitioners and regulators must develop novel methods to ...
