  • Safety in sampling. Methodological notes (En)

    Series: FAO Fisheries Technical PapersThe presented methodological notes address the question of sampling accuracy when sample-based data collection operations are performed under operational constraints - a frequent concern of fishery administrations with limited budgets and human resources. The paper focuses on an 'a priori' determination of ...

  • Sample-based fishery surveys. A technical handbook (En)

    Series: FAO Fisheries Technical PapersThe purpose of this handbook is to summarize experience gained over recent years in fishery statistical development by the Fishery Information, Data and Statistics Unit (FIDI) of FAO, and provide planners and users of fishery surveys with simple and step-by-step guidance for developing and implementing ...

  • Sampling Rare or Elusive Species: Concepts, Designs, and Techniques for Estimating Population Parameters

    Information regarding population status and abundance of rare species plays a key role in resource management decisions. Ideally, data should be collected using statistically sound sampling methods, but by their very nature, rare or elusive species pose a difficult sampling challenge.Sampling Rare or Elusive Species describes the latest sampling ...

  • Manual on sample-based data collection for fisheries assessment. Examples from Viet Nam (En)

    Series: FAO Fisheries Technical PapersThis manual deals with the practical implementation of a routine data collection programme. This programme is developed through a top-down approach, from the identification of the objectives down to the practical recording and management of data obtained from the fishery. The issues are dealt with through both ...

  • Isotopes in Environmental Studies - Aquatic Forum 2004 - Proceedings of an International Conference held in Monaco, 25-29 October 2004

    This proceedings publication reviews the present state of the art in applications of radioactive and stable isotopes in achieving a better understanding of environmental processes and in the protection of the aquatic environment. The main topics include: studies of the behaviour, transport and distribution of isotopes in the aquatic environment, ...

  • Fuel and Fuel System Microbiology: Fundamentals, Diagnosis, and Contamination Control

    This new ASTM manual brings together the various test procedures that technicians need to diagnose the contamination in fuels and fuel systems. It also suggests the means for detection and control of microbial contamination. As a complement to ASTM D6469 Standard Guide for Microbial Contamination in Fuels and Fuel Systems, this new publication ...

  • Bridging Divides

    Maritime canals dissolve natural barriers to the dispersal of marine organisms, thus providing novel opportunities for natural dispersal, as well as for shipping-mediated transport. The introduction of alien species has proved to be one of the most profound and damaging of anthropogenic deeds - with both ecological and economic costs. This book is ...

  • Guidelines for acoustic surveys in the northwest African region - Directives pour les campagnes acoustiques dans la région de l'Afrique du Nord-Ouest

    This manual provides a guide to the survey routines that should be followed during hydro- acoustic fish abundance surveys in the northwest African region for a harmonized coverage. The guidelines could, however, also be useful for other regions with similar environmental characteristics and marine resources. The manual covers topics such as survey ...

  • Deep-water Coral Reefs

    Deep-water coral reefs are found along large sections of the outer continental shelves and slopes of Europe, from North Cape to the Gulf of Cadiz, and because they also occur along the Atlantic seaboard of USA, the Gulf of Mexico, off Brazil, in the Mediterranean, and off New Zealand, they are currently being targeted by international groups of ...

  • Image Analysis, Sediments and Paleoenvironments

    This seventh volume of the DPER series examines imaging techniques for sedimentologists, paleolimnologists, paleoceanographers and microscopists working on issues related to paleoenvironmental reconstruction. It will help the researcher or graduate student to understand every step involved in the imaging process, from image acquisition to ...

  • Lipids in Freshwater Ecosystems

    There is a general lack of understanding of the role of lipids in aquatic ecosystems. The fundamental purpose of this book is to synthesize the divergent literature on aquatic lipids into a coordinated, digestible form. A large part of the book addresses lipid composition and production in freshwater organisms, with chapters on phytoplankton, ...

  • Offshore Site Investigation and Foundation Behaviour

    Two main areas of offshore activity are addressed in this book: Site investigation on assessment; and Applications and foundation engineering. The 37 contributions from a wide ranging group of international experts, are resulting from the Offshore Site Investigation and Foundation Behaviour Conference, London, U.K., September 1992. ...

  • Geotechnical Testing Journal

    The purpose of the Geotechnical Testing Journal is (1) to provide a high-quality publication that informs the profession of new developments in soil and rock testing and related fields; (2) to provide a forum for the exchange of information, particularly that which leads to the development of new test procedures; and (3) to stimulate active ...

  • Concentration Dynamics of Fecal Indicators in Hawaiian Coastal and Inland Sand, Soil, and Water during Rainfall Events

    Available as eBook only The contamination of recreational waters by waterborne pathogens poses a health threat to beach users. Recently, the importance of beach sand to the biological quality of beach water has been realized and verified. This study examined how urban rainfall runoff from a tributary stream affects the concentrations of fecal ...

  • Treatise on Geochemistry

    The application of chemistry to the study of the Earth has ancient roots. In the 20th century the subject became the organized and identifiable discipline called geochemistry, largely due to the pioneering work of F.W. Clarke, V.M. Goldschmidt, partly because of innovations in instrumentation, sampling techniques, and methodology, partly because ...

  • Dispersive Clays, Related Piping, and Erosion in Geotechnical Projects

    The symposium on Dispersive Clays, Related Piping, and Erosion in Geotechnical Projects was presented at the Seventy-ninth Annual Meeting of the American Society for Testing and Materials held in Chicago, Ill., 27 June - 2 July 1976. Committee D18 on Soil and Rock for Engineering Purposes sponsored the symposium. J. L. Sherard, consulting ...
