  • The Natural Radiation Environment VII

    The Natural Radiation Environment Symposium (NRE VII), the Seventh in the NRE series, which commenced forty years ago in 1963 at Rice University Texas, was held in Rhodes (Greece) in May 2002. During the intervening four decades the research work presented at these NRE Symposia has contributed to a deeper understanding of natural radiation and in ...

  • Radiation Processing: Environmental Applications

    This publication provides a summary of information relevant to radiation processing for environmental applications. It reports on current uses of radiation based technologies for flue gas treatment, wastewater purification and treatment of sewage sludge. This report is expected to facilitate the preparation of guidelines for feasibility studies of ...

  • Radioactivity Radionuclides Radiation

    RADIOACTIVITY – RADIONUCLIDES – RADIATION is suitable for a general audience interested in topical environmental and human health radiological issues such as radiation exposure in aircraft, food sterilisation, nuclear medicine, radon gas, radiation dispersion devices ('dirty bombs')… It leads the interested reader through the three Rs of nuclear ...

  • Effects of Radiation on Materials: 14th Int. Symposium (2 Volume Set)

    This two-volume set is a collection of research results of radiation effects in structural materials and nuclear fuels. Complex topics are covered in detail with supporting evidence.Volume I — 50 papers on: microstructures; gas effects; radiation-induced segregation or phase changes; micro structural modeling; fundamental defect behavior; and ...

  • ASTM Standards Related to Testing of Radiation Cured Coatings (Print)

    This desktop resource, available in print or CD-ROM, provides quick and easy access to the most commonly used ASTM test methods, procedures, and guides on radiation curing of coatings and allied products. These ASTM standards are often used and referenced in the radiation curing industry. Some are used in coating chemistries and others are ...

  • 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, ...

  • Biogeochemistry Of Global Change

    Certain trace gases in the atmosphere are able to absorb electromagnetic energy from the reflection of solar radiation from the Earth's surface. These gases have been increasing steadily and there is concern that they will change global climatic conditions by warming the atmosphere--the so-called ''greenhouse effect.'' Many of these gases ...

  • Dimethylsulphide: Oceans, Atmosphere and Climate (1992)

    Dimethylsulphide (DMS), emitted by marine phytoplankton, is the second most important source of atmospheric sulphur, after anthropogenic SO2. In the atmosphere, DMS is transformed into condensable acidic sulphur products and, through gas-to-particle conversion, it becomes the most important natural source of atmospheric sulphate aerosols. ...

  • Environmental Toxicology and Risk Assessment: Science, Policy, and Standardization-- Implications for Environmental Decisions, 10th Volume

    The latest volume in this ASTM series explores the advancements in the field of environmental toxicology and risk assessment, including methods of carrying scientific findings forward to sound policy decisions. 25 papers in 6 sections cover:Aquatic Toxicology--examines the ionic composition in water used in toxicity tests and how that impacts on ...

  • Water and the Search for Life on Mars

    Mars has long been believed to have been cold, dead and dry for aeons, but there is now striking new proof that not only was Mars a relatively warm and wet place in geologically recent times, but that even today there are vast reserves of water frozen beneath the planet’s surface. As well as casting fascinating new insights into Mars’ past, this ...

  • Building Vulnerability Assessments: Industrial Hygiene and Engineering Concepts

    All too often the assessment of structural vulnerability is thought of only in terms of security upgrades, guards, and entrance barriers. However, in order to fully ensure that a building is secure, the process of design and construction must also be considered. Building Vulnerability Assessments: Industrial Hygiene and Engineering Concepts ...

  • From the Outer Heliosphere to the Local Bubble

    Knowledge about the outer heliosphere and the interstellar medium, which were long treated as two separate fields, has improved dramatically over the past 25 years as a consequence of recent developments: The discovery of interstellar pickup ions and neutral helium inside the heliosphere, the determination of the interstellar hydrogen distribution ...

  • ASTM International Standards for Sustainability in Building: 3rd Edition

    Includes all of the ASTM standards that are referenced by the U.S. Federal Green Construction Guide for Specifiers as of January 2007. This new edition, on CD-ROM only, includes nearly 150 ASTM standards that address the sustainable design, construction, and operation of products used in building. These standards deal with various aspects of ...
