    ILM Publications has published the 34th Edition of Essential Environment in partnership with Environmental Protection UK. Essential Environment (formerly the Pollution Control Handbook) is the comprehensive guide to UK and EU environmental protection legislation. Written in clear, simple language, the 2012 Essential Environment handbook cuts ...

  • Power Plant Air Pollutant Control “Mega” Symposium 2008: CD Proceedings

    The seventh MEGA Symposium, held in Baltimore, MD, August 25-28, 2008, showcased the latest development and operational experience regarding power plant air emissions. This internationally popular event featured state-of-the-art methods for reducing SOx, NOx, particulate, mercury, and toxics emissions from fossil-fueled boilers, as well as carbon ...

  • Adaptive Governance and Climate Change

    As greenhouse gas emissions and temperatures at the poles continue to rise, so do damages from extreme weather events affecting countless lives. Meanwhile, ambitious international efforts to cut emissions (Kyoto, Copenhagen) have proved to be politically ineffective or infeasible. There is hope, however, in adaptive governance — an approach ...

  • Sustainable Development in the Baltic and Beyond

    This book documents and promotes the experiences from the 2nd Conference on Integrative Approaches Towards Sustainability (SHARING), held in Jurmala, Latvia, on May 11th to 24th, 2005. Attended by over 200 delegates from across the Baltic Sea region and beyond, the event provided an important contribution towards strengthening the integration of ...

  • "Sprites, Elves and Intense Lightning Discharges"

    Particularly intense lightning discharges can produce transient luminous events above thunderclouds, termed sprites, elves and jets. These short lived optical emissions in the mesosphere can reach from the tops of thunderclouds up to the ionosphere; they provide direct evidence of coupling from the lower atmosphere to the upper atmosphere. Sprites ...

  • Integrated Regional Risk Assessment

    Over recent years there has been an increasing awareness of the risks of locating hazardous industries near heavily populated, environmentally sensitive areas. This new awareness demands a novel approach to safety planning for hazardous industries; one that looks at the problem from the point of view of integrated regional risk assessment ...

  • Rock Physics and Natural Hazards

    Natural hazards events such as earthquakes or volcanic eruptions involve activation of coupled thermo-hydro-chemo-mechanical processes in rocks. The 7th Euro-conference of Rock Physics and Geomechanics was held September 25 to 30, 2007, in Erice (Italy), to explore how rock physics experiments and models can facilitate understanding and constraint ...

  • Seismicity Associated with Mines, Reservoirs and Fluid Injections

    This volume contains 18 papers from 8 countries dealing with different aspects of triggered and induced seismicity. In situ observations of the phenomenon include examples of seismicity due to reservoirs, hard-rock mines, coal mines, mine collapses, brine production caverns, fluid injections, and geothermal hot-dry-rock projects. High-frequency ...

  • Uncertainty and Environmental Decision Making

    Environmental issues are at the center of much of today’s geopolitical problems and debate. We live in an era where many global policies, regulations, and business decisions are influenced by our interactions with the natural environment. Questions of how our decisions will impact the environment and, conversely, how the environment—which is ...

  • Why Scientists Disagree about Global Warming

    The most important fact about climate science, often overlooked, is that scientists disagree about the environmental impacts of the combustion of fossil fuels on the global climate. There is no survey or study showing “consensus” on the most important scientific issues, despite frequent claims by advocates to the ...
