  • Environmental Health in Central and Eastern Europe

    Complex chemical mixtures impact our health every day. In the United States, and also in Central and Eastern Europe, there are a number of locations where complex chemical mixtures have been released to environmental media. Although exposure to mixtures is common, minimal information exists to quantify these exposures, or to determine their impact ...

  • Air Quality Guidelines: Global Update 2005. Particulate Matter, Ozone, Nitrogen Dioxide and Sulfur Dioxide

    As well as revised guideline values, this book makes a brief yet comprehensive review of the issues affecting the application of the guidelines in risk assessment and policy development. Further, it summarizes information on:  pollution sources and levels in various parts of the world, population exposure and characteristics affecting sensitivity ...

  • Natural Arsenic in Groundwaters of Latin America

    Groundwater resources naturally contain rather high levels of arsenic in many parts of the world. During the last two decades, the As-containing groundwater in South-East Asia has received much attention. However, the situation seems to be equally important in Latin America, where the number of studies is still relatively low, and the extent and ...

  • GIS for Health and the Environment

    The book is a compilation of methodological and application developments in spatial epidemiological approaches for environmental and public health studies in the Asia Pacific region. It is intended for practitioners in the field, including geospatial experts, practicing epidemiologists, medical doctors, environmentalists and public health ...

  • Air Quality in Urban Environments

    Urban air quality is a topic which remains high on the scientific and political agenda. Concentrations of most air pollutants are higher in urban areas than in the surrounding rural regions, and given the high population densities, it is within urban areas that the majority of the population receive their air pollutant exposure. Despite the ...

  • Inorganic Lead

    Evaluates the risks to human health posed by exposure to lead and inorganic lead compounds. Reflecting the focus of recent research, the report concentrates on mounting evidence that exposure to low levels of lead can have significant effects on health, particularly for infants and young children. Food, beverages, and water constitute the major ...

  • Biomarkers and Human Biomonitoring - Volume 2

    Human biomonitoring has developed from a research tool in occupational and environmental health to identify and quantify exposures to harmful substances in urine and blood. The analytical methods for detection of substances in biological media have considerably improved with smaller detection limits and more precise and specific measurements. ...

  • Biomarkers and Human Biomonitoring - Volume 1

    Human biomonitoring has developed from a research tool in occupational and environmental health to identify and quantify exposures to harmful substances in urine and blood. The analytical methods for detection of substances in biological media have considerably improved with smaller detection limits and more precise and specific measurements. ...

  • Ocular Radiation Risk Assessment in Populations Exposed to Environmental Radiation Contamination

    Several major follow-up studies are currently underway or are being planned to assess populations exposed to radiation from nuclear reactor accidents, contamination from nuclear weapons manufacturing, or fallout from nuclear testing. The data should help to define the true extent of the impact of environmental contamination; allow a better ...

  • Essential Environmental Studies

    Designed as a core textbook, this volume contains 50 chapters that provide comprehensive and up-to-date information in a simple and lucid form. Coverage includes natural resources (energy, land, forests, water, food), conservation, biodiversity, pollution (air, water, soil, etc.) pollution prevention and remediation, social implications of ...

  • Susceptibility to Inhaled Pollutants

    STP 1024 is divided into 5 sections: • markers and mechanisms of susceptibility• characterizing the study groups and their responses• exercise and regional dosimetry• susceptible populations models• asthma and controlled clinical exposures to specific pollutants ...

  • Biomarkers and Human Biomonitoring - Complete Set

    Human biomonitoring has developed from a research tool in occupational and environmental health to identify and quantify exposures to harmful substances in urine and blood. The analytical methods for detection of substances in biological media have considerably improved with smaller detection limits and more precise and specific measurements. ...

  • Vinyl Chloride

    Evaluates the risks to human health and the environment posed by exposure to vinyl chloride, a colourless, flammable gas manufactured almost exclusively for use in the production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). PVC is used to produce plastic materials having wide applications in the building sector, packaging, electrical appliances, medical care, ...

  • Aquatic Toxicology and Environmental Fate

    STP 1007 marks the beginning of the second decade of aquatic toxicology as a mature science. Papers address: Large scale cumulative effects of multiple pollution sources on regional communities and populations; effects of spills, storm runoff, and other non routine exposures with complex temporal dynamics; effects of variation in organism ...

  • Risk Management in a Hazardous Environment

    A research focus on hazards, risk perception and risk minimizing strategies is relatively new in the social and environmental sciences. This volume by a prominent scholar of East African societies is a powerful example of this growing interest. Earlier theory and research tended to describe social and economic systems in some form of equilibrium. ...

  • Global Environmental Change: The Threat to Human Health

    SummaryOver the past two-to-three hundred years, humanity’s ecological footprint has ballooned to such an extent that we are now fundamentally altering the planet. We have transformed the Earth’s land surface and altered the function of its ecosystems, and we are triggering the rapid loss of both terrestrial and marine life. We are ...
