  • Deep-Sea Food Chains and the Global Carbon Cycle

    Carbon dioxide and other 'greenhouse' gases are increasing in the atmosphere due to the burning of fossil fuels, the destruction of rain forests, etc., leading to predictions of a gradual global warming which will perturb the global biosphere. An important process which counters this trend toward potential climate change is the removal of ...

  • Chemistry of Marine Water and Sediments

    The book deals with the processes in marine environment with particular emphasis on the interface processes (sediments- water and atmosphere-water) regarding organic matter and energy fluxes, carbon dioxide intake and transformation. Particular analytical methodologies concerning biosensors for analysis in situ are ...

  • Evaluation of GHG Emissions from Septic Systems

    The emission rates of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from individual onsite septic systems used for the management of domestic wastewater were determined in this study. A static flux chamber method was used to determine the emission rates of methane, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxide gases from eight septic tanks and two soil dispersal systems. A ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • ASTM International Standards for Sustainability in Building: 3rd Edition

    Includes all of the ASTM standards that are referenced by the U.S. Federal Green Construction Guide for Specifiers as of January 2007. This new edition, on CD-ROM only, includes nearly 150 ASTM standards that address the sustainable design, construction, and operation of products used in building. These standards deal with various aspects of ...
