  • Atmospheric and Biological Environmental Monitoring

    The harmful impacts of pollution on atmospheric, terrestrial and aquatic environments can cause extreme temperature changes, clean water shortage, and increase toxicity. This book studies environmental pollution impacts, from the mechanism of toxic nanoparticles on the molecular level to the detection of trace gas on the satellite perspective. It ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Chemistry of Aquatic Systems: Local and Global Perspectives

    Aquatic systems play a salient role in the complex processes of energy and matter exchange between the geosphere and the atmosphere. Furthermore, the inextricable links between the water cycle, the geosphere and the atmosphere ensure that apparently localized environmental problems are increasingly seen to have impacts in other parts of the ...

  • 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 ...

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

    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 ...

  • Regional Aspects of Climate-Terrestrial-Hydrologic Interactions in Non-boreal Eastern Europe

    Strong atmosphere-hydrology-biosphere feedbacks including human activity affect the rate and sign of changes in the Earth’s system and have impacts on socioeconomic relationships. These processes are related to atmospheric circulation, climate and land use changes. Satellite-based and in situ monitoring systems have greatly increased our ...

  • 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 ...

  • Dynamic Planet

    Part I Joint IAG/IAPSO Papers.- Part II Frontiers in the analysis of space geodetic measurements.- Part III Gravity field determination from a synthesis of terrestrial, satellite, airborne and altimetry measurements.- Part IV Earth Processes: geodynamics, tides, crustal deformation and temporal gravity changes.- Part V Advances in the realization ...

  • The Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE)

    The Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE) is a small, free-flying satellite carrying four scientific instruments to measure the solar radiation incident at the top of the Earth’s atmosphere. SORCE was successfully launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center on 25 January 2003. As one element of NASA’s Earth Science Enterprise, the SORCE ...

  • Modeling Solar Radiation at the Earth´s Surface

    Solar radiation data is important for a wide range of applications, e.g. in engineering, agriculture, health sector, and in many fields of the natural sciences. A few examples showing the diversity of applications may include: architecture and building design e.g. air conditioning and cooling systems; solar heating system design and use; solar ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
