  • Solar Ultraviolet Radiation

    This volume brings together state-of-the-art views on ultraviolet radiation, its modelling, and effects from an interdisciplinary panel of international experts. The growing field of research is presented in a sequence from the arrival of UV light at the top of the atmosphere through its transfer to various biological receptors. Modelling and ...

  • Ecosystems, Evolution, and Ultraviolet Radiation

    This book discusses UV radiation, its effects on ecosystems and the likely evolutionary consequences of changed UV radiation environments, past, present and future. The first two chapters examine the history of the UV radiation climate of earth and the factors that determine organismal and ecosystem exposure. Their purpose is to give the reader a ...

  • Ultraviolet Radiation in the Solar System

    UV radiation is an important part in the electromagnetic spectrum since the energy of the photons is great enough to produce important chemical reactions in the atmospheres of planets and satellites of our Solar System, thereby affecting the transmission of this radiation to the ground and its physical properties. Scientists have used different ...

  • UV Radiation in Global Climate Change

    Numerous studies report that ultraviolet (UV) radiation is harmful to living organisms and detrimental to human health. Growing concerns regarding the increased levels of UV-B radiation that reach the earth's surface have led to the development of ground- and space-based measurement programs. Further study is needed on the measurement, modeling, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Advances in Microbial Ecology, Volume 15

    Volume 15 covers such topical matter as the effects of ultraviolet radiation on phytoplankton and the ecology and biogeochemistry of in situ groundwater bioremediation. ...

  • The Physics and Dynamics of Planetary Nebulae

    This is a considerably revised English translation of the Russian original of 1993. It gives a rather complete survey of the astrophysics of planetary nebulae, including theory and observations. The book covers various subjects ranging from various aspects of emission lines, ionization equilibrium, electron temperature, the ultraviolet and the ...

  • Plants and Climate Change

    Plants and Climate Change focuses on how climate affects or affected the biosphere and vice versa both in the present and past. The chapters describe how ecosystems from the Antarctic and Arctic and from other latitudes respond to global climate change.The papers highlight plant responses to atmospheric CO2 increase, to global warming and to ...

  • Algal Chemical Ecology

    This is the first ever book devoted entirely to the chemical ecology of algae. Algae from both marine and freshwater habitats are covered, as are macroalgae (seaweeds) and microalgae (including phytoplankton). While its main emphasis is on the ecological rather than chemical aspects of the field, the book also includes a unique introductory ...

  • Arctic Climate Impact Assessment - Arctic Climate

    The Arctic is now experiencing some of the most rapid and severe climate change on earth. Over the next 100 years, climate change is expected to accelerate, contributing to major physical, ecological, social, and economic changes, many of which have already begun. Changes in arctic climate will also affect the rest of the world through increased ...

  • Protecting the Ozone Layer Vol 3, Fire Extinguishing Substances

    Bromine is present in the halons controlled by the Montreal Protocol. The presence of bromine in the halon molecule enhances fire fighting effectiveness. Unfortunately, bromine radicals are also strong ozone-depleting agents. For the past 30 years, halons have been widely used in fire fighting equipment, and have been released into the ...
