  • Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage

    This IPCC Special Report describes sources, capture, transport, and storage of CO2. It discusses the costs, economic potential, and societal issues of the technology, including public perception and regulatory aspects. Storage options evaluated include geological storage, ocean storage, and mineral carbonation. The report places CO2 capture and ...

  • Carbon Cycle in the Russian Arctic Seas

    The book attempts to generalize the data in the carbon cycles of the Barents, White, Kara, Laptev, East-Siberian and Chukchi Seas by considering inter-correlations between sources of organic carbon, their fluxes, recycling and burial in bottom sediments. The study includes analysis of the set of conditions controlling the state of the Arctic ...

  • Shifting Mode: Low Carbon Strategies To Reduce Business Travel Costs

    Climate change, increasing fuel prices, regulation and shifting client expectations all present challenges for the way companies organise travel.Depending on the sector, business travel can account for up to three-quarters of a company’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. A coherent, low carbon business travel strategy is therefore a central, and ...

  • The Continental-Scale Greenhouse Gas Balance of Europe

    This book assesses the current greenhouse gas (GHG) monitoring capabilities of Europe, identifies and quantifies the uncertainties involved, and outlines the direction to a continental scale GHG monitoring network. The chapters provide a synthesis, based on current research results, of the European greenhouse gases budget, including both ...

  • 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, ...

  • Wetland Plants: Biology and Ecology

    A detailed account of the biology and ecology of vascular wetland plants and their applications in wetland plant science, Wetland Plants: Biology and Ecology presents a synthesis of wetland plant studies and reviews from biology, physiology, evolution, genetics, community and population ecology, environmental science, and engineering. It provides ...

  • A History of Atmospheric CO2 and Its Effects on Plants, Animals, and Ecosystems

    Extensive research in geology, atmospheric science, and paleontology provides a detailed history of CO2 in the atmosphere and an understanding of factors that have influenced changes in the past. This knowledge is used to illuminate the role of atmospheric CO2 in the modern carbon cycle and in the evolution of plants and animals. With an ...

  • Soil Ecology

    This book first synthesises in a complete, accessible way all the basic knowledge provided by the different disciplines of Soil Science. It then proposes integrative concepts and models that organise this knowledge, taking into account the multiple interactions that exist at a number of different scales among the living and inanimate components. ...

  • Global Warming: The Complete Briefing, 4th Edition

    John Houghton’s market-leading textbook is now in full colour and includes the latest IPCC findings, making it the definitive guide to climate change. Written for students across a wide range of disciplines, its simple, logical flow of ideas gives an invaluable grounding in the science and impacts of climate change and highlights the need for ...

  • Sinkholes and Subsidence

    'Sinkholes and Subsidence' provides a twenty-first century account of how the various subsidence features in carbonate and evaporite rocks cause problems in development and construction in our living environment. The authors explain the processes by which different types of sinkholes develop and mature in karst terrains. They consider the ...

  • Twenty-First Century Macroeconomics

    The authors and editors of this volume challenge traditional assumptions about economic growth, and develop the elements of a reoriented macroeconomics that takes account both of environmental impacts and of social equity. Policies including carbon trading, revenue recycling, and reorientation of private and social investment are analyzed, ...

  • Landforms and Geology of Granite Terrains

    ‘Landforms of Granitic Terrains´ provides an explanatory account of the landforms and landscapes developed on granitic rocks. Granite is exposed over about 15% of the continents and is thus of an areal significance comparable to the carbonates. Whereas many texts are concerned with karst landscapes, granitic terrains are nearly absent in ...

  • Climate Actions

    The Cement Sustainability Initiative's (CSI) “Climate Actions” publication details the results of industry efforts to address major sustainability challenges. These include: a sector-specific CO2 Accounting and Reporting Protocol, a global database of cement plant energy and emissions performance, a new approach to the Clean Development Mechanism, ...

  • The Chemistry of Phosphate and Nitrogen Compounds in Sediments

    This book deals with the processes constituting the cycles of the phosphate and nitrogen compounds in sediment and the phosphate equilibria between the sediment and the overlying water. Sediment, to a large extent, controls the P- and N concentrations and thus primary production. In most waters, too high concentrations of these compounds cause ...

  • Handbook of Turfgrass Management and Physiology

    A multibillion dollar industry that has tripled in the last ten years, turfgrass management plays an important role in landscaping, golf courses, and other sports surfaces. Proper management and cultural practices are crucial for the performance of these versatile grasses, creating a demand among scientists, researchers, and industry professionals ...

It provides ...

  • 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 ...

  • Dehalogenation

    Halogenated organic compounds constitute one of the largest groups of environmental chemicals. The industrial production of new halogenated organic compounds has increased throughout the last century and these compounds are integral to a variety of industrial applications. Although organohalide compounds are typically considered to be ...

  • The Earth Policy Reader

    If we have learned anything over the past year, it is that accounting systems that do not tell the truth can be costly. Faulty accounting systems have driven some of the world's largest corporations into bankruptcy, costing millions of people their lifetime savings, retirement income, and jobs.In The Earth Policy Reader, coauthored with Janet ...
