biogeochemistry Books

  • Ocean Biogeochemistry

    Oceans account for 50% of the anthropogenic CO2 released into the atmosphere. During the past 15 years an international programme, the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS), has been studying the ocean carbon cycle to quantify and model the biological and physical processes whereby CO2 is pumped from the ocean's surface to the depths of the ocean, ...

  • Modern Biogeochemistry

    Modern Biogeochemistry is aimed to generalize modern ideas of biogeochemical developments during the last decades. It is designed to support a general course in biogeochemistry, and as such, is likely to have a broad market among the many universities and colleges that are adding such courses to their curricula. This book aims to supplement the ...

  • Modern Biogeochemistry

    This book is aimed at generalizing the modern ideas of both biogeochemical and environmental risk assessment that have been developed in recent years. Only a few books are available for readers in this interdisciplinary area, since most books deal mainly with various technical aspects of ERA description and calculations. This text aims at ...

  • Biogeochemistry of a Forested Ecosystem

    Based on the classic ecosystem studies at Hubbard Brook in New Hampshire, this book presents an in-depth analysis of the biogeochemistry of a terrestrial ecosystem. It synthesizes long-term data on precipitation and streamwater chemistry, hydrology and weathering, and also considers the dynamics of atmospheric gases and water as they flow through ...

  • Biogeochemistry Of Global Change

    Certain trace gases in the atmosphere are able to absorb electromagnetic energy from the reflection of solar radiation from the Earth's surface. These gases have been increasing steadily and there is concern that they will change global climatic conditions by warming the atmosphere--the so-called ''greenhouse effect.'' Many of these gases ...

  • Biogeochemistry of Wetlands: Science and Applications

    Wetland ecosystems maintain a fragile balance of soil, water, plant, and atmospheric components in order to regulate water flow, flooding, and water quality. Marginally covered in traditional texts on biogeochemistry or on wetland soils, Biogeochemistry of Wetlands is the first to focus entirely on the biological, geological, physical, and ...

  • Biogeochemistry of Trace Elements in Arid Environments

    Global warming has worsened the water resource crisis in many arid zones worldwide, from Africa to Asia, affecting millions of people and putting them at risk of hunger. Effective management of arid zone resources, including understanding the risks of toxic trace and heavy elements to humans, coupled with the need to produce more food to feed the ...

  • Trace Elements in the Environment: Biogeochemistry, Biotechnology, and Bioremediation

    New analytical techniques have enhanced current understanding of the behavior of trace and ultratrace elements in the biogeochemical cycling, chemical speciation, bioavailability, bioaccumulation, and as applied to the phytoremediation of contaminated soils. Addressing worldwide regulatory, scientific, and environmental issues, Trace Elements in ...

  • Riverbank Filtration: Understanding Contaminant Biogeochemistry and Pathogen Removal

    Riverbank filtration is widely used in Europe and to some extent in the United States for the public water supply. It is a cost-effective and realisable treatment technology in which horizontal and vertical wells pump a mixture of ground water and induced surface water from a river. This book describes the biogeochemical issues involved in ...

  • Advances in Microbial Ecology, Volume 15

    Volume 15 covers such topical matter as the effects of ultraviolet radiation on phytoplankton and the ecology and biogeochemistry of in situ groundwater bioremediation. ...

  • Uranium, Mining and Hydrogeology

    Subject of the book is Uranium and its migration in aquatic environments. The following subjects are emphasised: Uranium mining, Phosphate mining, mine closure and remediation, Uranium in groundwater and in bedrock, biogeochemistry of Uranium, environmental behavior, and modeling. Particular results from the leading edge of international research ...

  • Biogeochemical Investigations of Terrestrial, Freshwater, and Wetland Ecosystems Across the Globe

    This volume contains reviewed papers from BIOGEOMON, The Fourth International Symposium on Ecosystem Behavior, held at the University of Reading in August 2002, and attended by over 260 participants from 25 countries. The papers in this volume focus on themes that have always been strong at BIOGEOMON, such as: - catchment monitoring and ...

  • Pattern and Process in a Forested Ecosystem

    This volume draws on the Hubbard Brook Experiment to present an integrated picture of the structure, function, and development over time of the northern hardwood ecosystem in northern New England. Topics covered include important ecological problems such as the limits to primary production and biomass accumulation, biotic regulation of energy flow ...

  • Carbon and Nutrient Fluxes in Continental Margins

    The book provides best estimates of carbon and nutrient fluxes in seven types of continental margins. In each type, these fluxes are reported in detail individually for 3-7 representative geographic regions, each of which is characterized by concise descriptions of the physical and biogeochemical settings. Drawn from the regional synthesis, a ...

  • Trace Elements in Soil: Bioavailability, Flux, and Transfer

    Historically, research on the methods and amounts of trace element application to agriculture soils for correcting plant deficiencies has received major attention. More recently, due to industrial development and past disposal activities, trace elements are considered to be important environmental contaminants that affect all components in the ...

  • Estuaries

    Aspects of the biogeochemistry of estuaries from a variety of environments, from the tropics to the Arctic, are discussed. In most cases the courses of these rivers have been altered by dams or diversions; the results of these changes on the nature of the estuary are also discussed, where such data is available. In the case of the Tasmanian ...

  • Challenges of a Changing Earth

    This book presents a state-of-the-science overview of global change and its consequences for human societies. It highlights four areas of critical importance - food, water resources, air quality and the carbon cycle - from both science and policy perspectives, and points the way towards the new scientific approaches needed to study the Earth ...

  • Marine Science Frontiers for Europe

    Europe is a continent with a high coast-to-surface ratio, and European seas encompass a broad range of settings and regimes. The sustainable development of living and non-living marine resources, the protection of the marine environment and the provision of marine-based services are critical to economic prosperity and to the quality of life of ...
