  • The Atmosphere and Ionosphere

    The main topics of the book are the analysis of reactions in the atmosphere-ionosphere system and the influence of natural and technogenic processes on them. The book also examines a range of related research from an international field. In all, five sections of the volume cover the dynamics of atmospheric aerosols; the dynamics of an ionosphere ...

  • Instrument Development for Atmospheric Research and Monitoring

    The growth in our understanding of the production, transformation and loss of pollutants and trace substances in the atmosphere has followed closely the development of instrumentation for both in situ and remote measurements of the minute concentrations and fluxes of trace substances. In recent times the requirement has been for instruments which ...

  • Atmospheric Acoustic Remote Sensing

    Sonic Detection and Ranging (SODAR) systems and Radio Acoustic Sounding Systems (RASS) use sound waves to determine wind speed, wind direction, and turbulent character of the atmosphere. They are increasingly used for environmental and scientific applications such as analyzing ground-level pollution dispersion and monitoring conditions affecting ...

  • Toxic Materials in the Atmosphere: Sampling and Analysis

    The contents are divided into four sections: Industrial Hygiene Sampling and Analysis; Continuous Air Monitors and Portable Instruments; Passive Monitoring Devices; Chemical Characterization and Analytical Methods. The intent of the 1981 Boulder Conference upon which this publication is based was to review all aspects of air sampling and analysis ...

  • Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere for Environmental Security

    Recent ecological disasters make human beings aware of changes in the Earth’s climate. At the present time anthropogenic activities lead to the emission of greenhouse gases, pollutants, aerosols and ozone depleting substances and the scientific community in general feels responsible for understanding how changes in atmospheric chemistry can affect ...

  • Cosmic Rays in the Earth´s Atmosphere and Underground

    This book consists of four parts. In the first part (Chapters 1-4) a full overview is given of the theoretical and experimental basis of Cosmic Ray (CR) research in the atmosphere and underground for Geophysics and Space Physics; the development of CR research and a short history of many fundamental discoveries, main properties of primary and ...

  • Calibration in Air Monitoring

    The Symposium on Calibration in Air Monitoring was presented at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Colo., 5-7 Aug., 1975. The symposium was sponsored by The American Society for Testing and Materials through its Committee D-22 on Methods of Sampling and Analysis of Atmospheres. R. L. Chapman, Beckman Instruments, Inc., presided as symposium ...

  • Recent Advances in Nuclear Explosion Monitoring

    This topical volume focuses on the most recent advances that have been achieved in relevant fields of research of nuclear test ban monitoring, including seismology, infrasound- and hydro-acoustics, as well as nuclear physics and atmospheric backtracking. This research has been presented during the special sessions on 'Research and Development in ...

  • Monitoring the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Bant Treaty: Data Processing and Infrasound

    On September 10, 1996, The United Nations General Assembly adopted the Copmprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), prohibiting nuclear explosions worldwide, in all environments. The treaty calls for a global verification system, including a network of 321 monitoring stations distributed around the globe, a data communications network, an ...

  • ASTM International Metalworking Industry Standards: Environmental Quality and Safety, Fluid Performance and Condition Monitoring Tests (Print)

    Optimal selection and use of metalworking fluids depends on multiple factors, including raw material selection, fluid formulation, water quality, in-process fluid management and good industrial hygiene practices. This new ASTM publication provides 39 standard test methods, practices, and guides, which are used to determine whether fluid ...
