  • ASTM Computer Program for Chemical Thermodynamic and Energy Release Evaluation -- CHETAH Version 9.0

    The latest version of the CHETAH® program is a vital resource for predicting both thermochemical properties and certain reactive chemical hazards associated with a pure chemical, a mixture of chemicals, or a chemical reaction. CHETAH® is useful for classifying materials for their ability to decompose with violence, estimating heats of ...

  • Modelling Radiocesium in Lakes and Coastal Areas-New Approaches for Ecosystem Modellers

    During the last 10 years, there has been a 'revolution' in ecosystem modelling. The generality and predictive power of our models have increased in a way that was inconceivable 10 years ago. This book describes a new generation of practically useful models that predict as well as one can measure - if one measures well. And yet, they are ...

  • Transformation Products of Synthetic Chemicals in the Environment

    When a synthetic chemical is released into the environment it may be degraded by abiotic and biotic processes. These degradation processes usually involve a cascade of reactions resulting in the formation of a number of transformation products. While we usually know a great deal about the environmental properties, fate and effects of parent ...

  • Handbook of Antiblocking, Release, and Slip Additives

    This handbook is the first ever book written on the subject of antiblocking, release, and slip additives, which are of high industrial importance. The third edition has included all new information which became available in the last 8 years since the publication of the first edition. Eighteen chemical families form a core of industrial ...

  • Regulation through Revelation

    Information provision is increasingly being used as a regulatory tool. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Program required facilities that handle threshold amounts of specific chemicals to report yearly their releases and transfers of these toxic substances. The TRI data have become the yardstick by which ...

  • Anhydrous Ammonia (DVD)

  • Large Scale Computations in Air Pollution Modelling

    The protection of the environment is one of the most important problems facing us today. Reliable and robust strategies for keeping pollution caused by harmful chemicals under safe levels have to be developed and used routinely. Large mathematical models, incorporating all important physical and chemical processes, can solve this task, but ...

  • Subduction Zone Geodynamics

    Subduction is a major process that plays a first-order role in the dynamics of the Earth. The sinking of cold lithosphere into the mantle is thought by many authors to be the most important source of energy for plates driving forces. It also deeply modifies the thermal and chemical structure of the mantle, producing arc volcanism and is ...
