  • Carbon Inventory Methods

    Carbon inventory requiring estimation of carbon dioxide emissions and removals in land-use categories for national greenhouse gas inventory and changes in stocks of carbon in projects aimed at climate change mitigation has become increasingly important in global efforts to address climate change. Hence, there is a need for a handbook that provides ...

  • 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 ...

  • Field Measurements for Forest Carbon Monitoring

    This volume is a comprehensive guide to the methods and techniques employed in forest carbon inventory and monitoring. Since forest carbon research is interdisciplinary, it is unlikely that any one investigator will possess expertise in all of the types of measurements needed to conduct forest carbon research at scales larger than a forest stand. ...

  • Climate Change Handbook

    Climate change legislation is inevitable. Congressmen are lining up in support of an ever increasing number of bills to address growing public concern on climate change. More than half the U.S. states have not waited for Congress to act and have taken their own actions. No U.S. company will be unaffected by the current and proposed legislation.In ...

  • Tropospheric Chemistry

    The formation, transport and impact of photo-oxidants, e.g., ozone, is a major environmental problem in densely populated areas with corresponding high emissions of ozone precursor substances such as NOx and volatile organic carbon compounds (VOC).Although major progress has been achieved within the last decade, there are still significant ...

  • 2001 Mars Odyssey

    Mars, the most habitable of our sister planets, holds a special place in our imaginations and in our space exploration program. Fully half of NASA's planetary exploration effort is now devoted to Mars. Key questions include: Has Mars ever harbored life? Is there life on Mars now? Will humans be able to survive on the Martian surface? Answers to ...

  • 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 ...

  • Flammability and Sensitivity of Materials in Oxygen-Enriched Environments, 11th Volume

    This new volume provides 32 peer-reviewed papers covering:Ignition and Combustion of Nonmetals—focuses on the results of an experimental study on the ignition of fire retarded polyurethane foam in oxygen concentrations from 30% to 60%; frictional ignition testing of composite materials; pneumatic-impact ignition of sebum oil film in ...
