  • Estrogens and Xenoestrogens in the Aquatic Environment: An Integrated Approach for Field Monitoring and Effect Assessment

    In 1999, the Health Council of The Netherlands recommended an investigation into the occurrence and effects of estrogenic compounds in surface waters and its potential effects on aquatic organisms. As a result, the Dutch government initiated a broad investigation into the occurrence of these types of contaminants and their effects on fish in the ...

  • Monitoring Structural Integrity by Acoustic Emission

    The symposium on Monitoring Structural Integrity by Acoustic Emission was presented in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., 17-18 Jan. 1974. The symposium was sponsored by Committee E07 on Nondestructuve Testing, American Society for Testing and Materials. J. C. Spanner, Westinghouse Hanford Co., presided as symposium chairman. J. W. McElroy, Philadelphia ...

  • Monitoring Nature Conservation in Cultural Habitats:

    Monitoring Nature Conservation in Cultural Habitats presents monitoring as an integral component of responsible conservation management and as a catalyst for decision making. The early sections of the book cover key areas in the development of a monitoring project, including:- The roles of survey and surveillance- Incorporating knowledge from ...

  • Climate Change and Arctic Sustainable Development Scientific, social, cultural and educational challenges

    The Arctic is undergoing rapid and dramatic environmental and social transformations due to climate change. This has ramifications for the entire planet, as change spreads through interconnected global networks that are environmental, cultural, economic and political. Today, with the major thrust of research shifting away from deciphering causes ...

  • Integrated Technology for Environmental Monitoring and Information Production

    This book focuses on the current issue of environmental data management in view of the difficulties associated with various aspects of data management, i.e., objectives and constraints, design of data collection networks, statistical and physical sampling, remote sensing and GIS, databases, reliability of data, data analysis, and transformation of ...

  • Landscape Pattern Analysis for Assessing Ecosystem Condition

    One of our greatest current challenges is the preservation and remediation of ecosystem integrity. This requires monitoring and assessment over large geographic areas, repeatedly over time, and cannot be practically fulfilled by field measurements alone. Remotely sensed imagery plays a crucial role by its ability to monitor large spatially ...

  • Conservation Monitoring in Freshwater Habitats

    The predicted changes to global weather patterns and increases in the human population will put unprecedented pressure on European freshwater habitats and the species that depend on them. Our success in conserving the ecological value of these habitats will depend greatly on carefully planned conservation management integrated with efficient and ...

  • Advances in Spatial and Temporal Databases

    This volume constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 11th International Symposium on Spatial and Temporal Databases, SSTD 2009, held in Aalborg, Denmark, in July 2009. The 20 revised full papers presented together with 3 keynotes, 7 short papers, and 10 demonstration papers, were thoroughly reviewed and selected from a total of 62 research ...
