  • Climate Change: An Integrated Perspective

    Global climate change - rapid, substantial and human induced - may have radical consequences for life on earth. The problem is a complex one, however, demanding a multi-disciplinary approach. A simple cost-benefit analysis cannot capture the essentials, nor can the issue be reduced to an emissions reduction game, as the Kyoto process tries to ...

  • Ozone Air Pollution in the Sierra Nevada - Distribution and Effects on Forests

    The book contains information on geology, climate and vegetation of the Sierra Nevada with a special emphasis on air pollution effects on the mixed conifer forests. A history of the extent of air pollution effects on mixed conifer forests, especially ponderosa and Jeffrey pines is provided. The physiological basis for ozone-type injury development ...

  • Urban Air Pollution and Forests - Resources at Risk in the Mexico City Air Basin

    Urban Air Pollution and Forests - Resources at Risk in the Mexico City Air Basin With a population of more than eighteen million people, Mexico City is a major metropolitan area where the effects of urban development on air quality are of immediate concern. Air pollution exposures and effects on forests in the Mexico City Air Basin are in many ...

  • Challenges in Green Analytical Chemistry

    Concerns about environmental pollution, global climate change and hazards to human health have increased dramatically. This has lead to a call for change in chemical processes including those that are part of chemical analysis. The development of analytical chemistry continues and every new discovery in chemistry, physics, molecular biology, and ...

  • Large-Scale Disasters: Prediction, Control, and Mitigation

    This volume presents an integrated review of the broad research field of large-scale disasters. It establishes a common framework for predicting, controlling and managing both manmade and natural disasters. There is a particular focus on events caused by weather and climate change. Other topics include air pollution, tsunamis, disaster modeling, ...

  • Transport and the Environment

    Mass transportation has become central to the lifestyle of developed societies - but with what consequences for the environment and, ultimately, human health? Transport and the Environment investigates the major aspects of this emotive subject, with contributions from authors with international reputations for their research in the field. ...

  • Highway and Urban Environment

    The 9th Highway and Urban Environment Symposium (9HUES) was held in Madrid, Spain, from 9-11 June 2008. HUES is run by Chalmers University of Technology within the Alliance for Global Sustainability (The AGS). HUES was initiated by Professor Ron Hamilton at Middlesex Polytechnic (now University) in the early 1980s and had the title 'Highway ...

  • Water Resources Quality

    Water is vital for the life and health of people and ecosystems, and is a basic condition for the development of countries. Water resources, and the related ecosystems which are sustained by water, are under threat from pollution, unsustainable use, land-use changes, climate changes and many other forces. This book incorporates basic and advanced ...

  • Handbook of Hydrocarbon and Lipid Microbiology

    'Water is life!' All active cellular systems require water as the medium and solvent of their metabolic activities. Hydrophobic compounds and structures, which tend to exclude water, though providing inter alia excellent sources of energy and a means of biological compartmentalization, present problems of cellular handling, poor bioavailability ...
