CO2 monitoring Books

  • 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, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Arterial Chemoreceptors

    The carotid body arterial chemoreceptors constitute unique sensory receptors capable of rapidly monitoring the levels of arterial blood oxygen and carbon dioxide. Whenever necessary they initiate homeostatic reflexes aimed to correct the detected deviations. Chemoreceptor cells of the carotid body constitute ideal models to study the entire ...

  • Storing Carbon in Agricultural Soils: A Multi-Purpose Environmental Strategy

    Soil carbon sequestration can play a strategic role in controlling the increase of CO2 in the atmosphere and thereby help mitigate climatic change. There are scientific opportunities to increase the capacity of soils to store carbon and remove it from circulation for longer periods of time. The vast areas of degraded and desertified lands ...

  • Forest Growth Responses to the Pollution Climate of the 21st Century

    These proceedings consist of papers presented at the 18th IUFRO workshop on Forest Growth Responses to the Pollution Climate of the 21st Century, held in Edinburgh in September 1998. Included are authoritative reviews and experimental evidence of forest growth responses in Europe and North America to the dominant components of air pollution, ...

  • Surviving 1000 Centuries

    The circumstances that will shape the long-term future of our planet will be constrained by what is physically possible and what is not. This book provides a quantitative view of our civilization over the next 100,000 years, in comparison to the 40-60,000 years it took for modern humans to emerge from Africa, on the basis of contemporary ...
