  • 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 ...

  • Water Auditing and Water Conservation, 2nd Edition

    Water auditing is a method of quantifying water flows and quality in simple or complex systems, with a view to reducing water usage and often saving money on otherwise unnecessary water use. There is an increasing awareness around the globe of the centrality of water to our lives. This awareness crosses political and social boundaries. In many ...

    These Proceedings contain both oral and poster contributions to the first international conference 'Field Screening Europe - Strategies and Techniques for On-Site Investigation and Monitoring of Contaminated Soil, Water and Air', held in Karlsruhe on September 29-October 1, 1997. Environmental monitoring and the assessment of chemical ...

  • Standards and Thresholds for Impact Assessment

    Standards and Thresholds play an important role in many stages of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process. They can be legally-binding or guidance values and are linked to environmental data. This publication provides a comprehensive collection of standards and thresholds, their derivation and application in case studies of EIA projects. ...

    Features the most current methods for determining precise levels of radiation exposure using state-of-the-art instrumentation. An international selection of experts in the field from the United States, Europe and the Middle East have presented 13 comprehensive, peer-reviewed papers in two key categories: Applications of ICP-MS in the Nuclear ...

  • Coastal oceans research and development in the Indian Ocean : status report 2008

    The CORDIO programme, which started in 1999 as a pragmatic response to the impacts of global warming on coral reefs, has over the years improved our knowledge and management of coral reefs. Data collection in the Curieuse Marine Park in the Seychelles was instrumental in guiding government policy over the management of marine protected areas, ...

  • Nonpoint Source Pollution Regulation: Issues and Analysis

    The book provides an overview of recent advances in the theoretical analysis of NPS pollution and regulation from an economic perspective. Besides specific policy recommendations, a common theme in the essays is the attempt to suggest regulatory approaches starting from the recognition of the problems of incomplete information encountered ...

  • Detection of Pathogens in Water Using Micro and Nano-Technology

    Detection of Pathogens in Water Using Micro and Nano-Technology aims to promote the uptake of innovative micro and nano-technological approaches towards the development of an integrated, cost-effective nano-biological sensor useful for security and environmental assays. The book describes the concerted efforts of a large European research project ...

  • Laboratory and Field Testing of Unsaturated Soils

    This collection focuses on recent advances in laboratory and field testing of unsaturated soils. Leading researchers from fourteen countries to represent global research in the area of experimental unsaturated soil mechanics have been invited to contribute to this book. Twelve reports are presented dealing with measurement and control of suction ...

  • Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy

    Ulrich Platt is awarded the Robert-Wichard-Pohl Prize 2010 for his valuable contribution to the application of DOAS to atmospheric spectroscopyMeasurement techniques form the basis of our knowledge about atmospheric composition and chemistry. Presently, important questions of atmospheric chemistry center on urban pollution, free-radical chemistry, ...

  • Water in Road Structures

    Water in and beneath a road pavement has a major impact on the road's performance and its survivability. This book provides a state-of-the-art on the topic of water in pavements and the adjacent ground. It includes coverage of the basic theory; where the water comes from; how it may (or may not) be drained; the effect of temperature on the ...

  • ISOCYANATES: Sampling, Analysis, and Health Effects

    STP 1408 examines the latest data and technology on isocyanates, and features topics ranging from sampling and analysis methods to health effects. Isocyanates are widely used in many industrial processes because of their high activity and affinity to many substances, which lead to polymerization, as well as the properties for the resulting ...
