Pollutant Release Books

  • Environmental Forensics

    Environmental forensics' is a combination of analytical and environmental chemistry, which is useful in the court room context. It therefore involves field analytical studies and both data interpretation and modelling connected with the attribution of pollution events to their causes. Recent decades have seen a burgeoning of legislation designed ...

  • Our Precious Coasts : Marine Pollution, Climate Change and the Resilience of Coastal Ecosystems

    The ability of coral reefs to survive in a globally-warming world may crucially depend on the levels of pollution to which they are exposed, new findings indicate.Scientists studying reefs that were bleached in the late 1990s by high surface sea temperatures have found a link between recovery rates and the levels of contamination entering coastal ...

  • Environmental Compliance: A Simplified National Guide

    Written to provide clear, step-by-step guidance, Environmental Compliance: A Simplified National Guide will enable you to take compliance actions in the following major areas of environmental management:· Air pollutants · Release reporting and response · Air toxics emissions · SARA Title III/Right-to-Know · Air toxics emergency planning · Sewer ...

  • Flow and Transport Processes with Complex Obstructions

    The monograph is the first book that reviews a variety of problems in different fluid mechanics disciplines that led to the concept of canopy, or penetrable roughness. Despite their diversity, many flows may be theoretically united by means of introducing distributed sinks and/or sources of momentum and heat and mass. Terrestrial vegetation, ...

  • The Fate of Persistent Organic Pollutants in the Environment

    Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are organic compounds of natural or anthropogenic origin that resist photolytic, chemical and biological degradation. They are characterized by low water solubility and high lipid solubility, resulting in bioaccumulation in fatty tissues of living organisms. These properties of unusual high persistence and ...

  • Air Pollution Modeling and Its Application XII

    Integrated Regional Modeling: Modeling of a Saharan Dust Event; G. Cautenet, et al. Temporal and Spatial Scales for Transport and Transformation Processes in the Eastern Mediterranean; G. Kallos, et al. Global and Long-Range Transport: Atmospheric Transport-Chemistry Modeling-Some Ideas for the Future; P. Builtjes. A Model for Airborne ...

  • Integrated Regional Risk Assessment

    Over recent years there has been an increasing awareness of the risks of locating hazardous industries near heavily populated, environmentally sensitive areas. This new awareness demands a novel approach to safety planning for hazardous industries; one that looks at the problem from the point of view of integrated regional risk assessment ...

  • New Report On Environmental Protection & Waste Management in Canada

    The staff at Hazardous Materials Management and Solid Waste & Recycling magazines, working with consultants from Environics International, have released the most in-depth study of the environmental protection and waste management industries in Canada to date.The full report -- which includes valuable information about new trends, pollution and ...

  • Migration of Fines in Porous Media

    This monograph presents a concise and thorough treatment of release, migration and entrapment of fine particles in natural porous media. The first chapter treats the practical consequences of release and migration of fine particles in porous media. This is followed by a discussion of the basic mechanisms of release, transport and entrapment ...

  • Low Dose Exposures in the Environment

    The ever-increasing release of harmful agents due to human activities has led in some areas of the world to heavy pollution. In order to protect human health and the environment, environmental standards that shall limit the release and the concentration of those toxic agents in the environment and hence the exposure to it have to be established. ...

  • Pollutant-Solid Phase Interactions

    Growth in the numbers of organic chemicals during recent decades has been extraordinary. Most are complex compounds that are released directly and/or indirectly to the surrounding environment. A view is emerging in relation to environmental protection and hazardous substance management that (1) some organic chemicals and/or organic leachates from ...

  • Man-Made and Natural Radioactivity in Environmental Pollution and Radiochronology

    The basic goal of this book is to examine the complex state of radioactivity in the environment, including its sources and applications. In principle, there are two sources of environmental radioactivity, namely man-made and natural. The authors of this book set out to analyze mainly empirical aspects of the activities of both groups. On one hand, ...

  • Combustion

    Combustion is an old technology, which at present provides about 90% of our worldwide energy support. Combustion research in the past used fluid mechanics with global heat release by chemical reactions described with thermodynamics, assuming infinitely fast reactions. This approach was useful for stationary combustion processes, but it is not ...

  • An Introduction to Pollution Science

    Understanding pollution, its behaviour and impact is becoming increasingly important, as new technologies and legislation continually lower the tolerable levels of pollutants released into the environment. Introduction to Pollution Science draws upon sections of the authors' previous text Understanding our Environment and reflects the growing ...
