atmospheric monitoring information Books

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Ecosystem Responses to Mercury Contamination: Indicators of Change

    Drawing on the knowledge of international experts in the fields of atmospheric transport and deposition, mercury cycling in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and mercury bioaccumulation in aquatic foodwebs and wildlife, Ecosystem Responses to Mercury Contamination: Indicators of Change presents the information needed to design a national-scale ...

  • Ecosystem Responses to Mercury Contamination: Indicators of Change

    As rising levels of mercury in the environment pose an increasing threat of toxicity to humans and wildlife, several laws already call for industries to reduce mercury emissions at the source. Ecosystem Responses to Mercury Contamination: Indicators of Change outlines the infrastructure and methods needed to measure, monitor, and regulate the ...

  • Laser Remote Sensing

    Information on recent progress in laser remote sensor (LIDAR) technology can be found scattered throughout numerous journal articles and conference proceedings, but until now there has been no work that summarizes recent advancements and achievements in the field in a detailed format.Laser Remote Sensing provides an up-to-date, comprehensive ...

  • Plant Responses to Air Pollution and Global Change

    The main impetus for climate change is the elevated concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide and air pollutants arise largely from the same industrial sources and are diffused throughout the world, so that air pollution is also part of global change. The impacts on plants have complex interrelationships and lead to changes in land ...

  • Scattered and Filtered Solar UV Measurements

    Scattered and Filtered Solar UV Measurements provides comprehensive information about the scattered and filtered solar UV environment, the techniques to measure this radiation and the resulting UV exposures to humans. The incidence of skin cancer and sun-related eye disorders can be reduced by the minimization of exposures to UV radiation. For ...

  • Dayside and Polar Cap Aurora

    The auroral emissions in the upper atmosphere of the polar regions of the Earth are evidence of the capture of energetic particles from the Sun, streaming by the Earth as the solar wind. These auroral emissions, then, are a window to outer space, and can provide us with valuable information about electrodynamic coupling processes between the solar ...

  • Hyperspectral Remote Sensing: Principles and Applications

    Land management issues, such as mapping tree species, recognizing invasive plants, and identifying key geologic features, require an understanding of complex technical issues before the best decisions can be made. Hyperspectral remote sensing is one the technologies that can help with reliable detection and identification. Presenting the ...

  • Confined Space Case Histories (DVD)

    Re-enactments of real-life confined space accidents emphasize the importance of safety procedures in this program.In this award-winning training program, re-enactments of real-life confined space accidents emphasize the importance of following proper confined space safety procedures. Once your workers see and hear these gruesome stories, they will ...

  • Biogeochemical Investigations at the Watershed, Landscape, and Regional Scales

    This volume contains reviewed papers from BIOGEOMON, The Third International Symposium on Ecosystem Behavior, held at Villanova University in June 1997 and attended by over 240 participants from 28 countries. Earlier BIOGEOMON meetings emphasized mostly geochemical research conducted in small watersheds. As is evident from this collection of ...

  • Surviving 1000 Centuries

    The circumstances that will shape the long-term future of our planet will be constrained by what is physically possible and what is not. This book provides a quantitative view of our civilization over the next 100,000 years, in comparison to the 40-60,000 years it took for modern humans to emerge from Africa, on the basis of contemporary ...

  • GEMS Environment Library No. 09: Glaciers and the Environment

    The aim of this publication is to make the knowledge we have gained about glaciers more widely known, and to emphasize the need to develop this knowledge. Glaciology holds one of the keys to our past. It may also hold many to our future.It is difficult to believe in these times of global warming and recurrent drought that the Earth is essentially ...

  • Protecting the Ozone Layer Vol 3, Fire Extinguishing Substances

    Bromine is present in the halons controlled by the Montreal Protocol. The presence of bromine in the halon molecule enhances fire fighting effectiveness. Unfortunately, bromine radicals are also strong ozone-depleting agents. For the past 30 years, halons have been widely used in fire fighting equipment, and have been released into the ...

  • Case Study Country Reports in Tanzania

    This report is the national inventory of Tanzania, and presents the findings of the study team. A base line inventory of sources and sinks of greenhouse gases for Tanzania is being presented. While a lot of gaps do exist in the data available and that which is required for a detailed inventory, the work highlights areas where further research is ...
