Environmental Monitoring Books

  • Environmental Monitoring

    The current rate and scale of environmental change around the world makes the detection and understanding of these changes increasingly urgent. Subsequently, government legislation is focusing on measurable results of environmental programs, requiring researchers to employ effective and efficient methods for acquiring high-quality ...

  • 2002 Report of the Aerosols, Sterilants, Miscellaneous Uses and Carbon Tetrachloride Technical Options Committee ( ATOC)

    In 1981, in response to the growing scientific consensus that chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and halons would deplete the ozone layer, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) began negotiations to develop multilateral protectionof the ozone layer. These negotiations resulted in the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer, ...

  • Caucaus Environment Outlook (CEO) 2002

    This first Caucasus Environment (CEO) is a regional report and the result of work by experts from four countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Russia. The major objectives of the CEO are to report on the status of the Caucasus environment, identify ongoing socio-economic 'driving forces' and offer an integrated look at regional and ...

  • Green Travel Plan - 1999 Report

    This is the Highways Agency's own 'Green Travel Plan'. It demonstrates our commitment to playing our part in minimising the impact of travel on the environment by reducing the level of unnecessary travel and encouraging those who have to travel to do so in a more environmentally friendly way. It contains a number of measures which we hope will ...

  • New Approaches to Monitoring Aquatic Ecosystems

    Offers examples where new methods and approaches of environmental monitoring are being employed. Papers elaborate on specific concerns, questions, and program criteria that characterize the development of monitoring programs and provide paradigams for future monitoring programs. Key discussion concepts include water quality, statistical design ...

  • Stable Isotope Techniques in the Study of Biological Processes and Functioning of Ecosystems

    This book has a very strong practical orientation, telling readers what methodologies are available using stable isotopes, how studies should be designed and executed to maximise effectiveness and incisiveness in terms of data obtained and outcomes in terms of understanding events and processes in plant and ecosystem functioning. The ...

  • Bioremediation

    In the field of biosensors the previous focus has been almost entirely on medical diagnostics. Here it is discussed in relation to bioremediation. The application of new biosensing techniques to environmental monitoring promises to be a more economical approach to monitoring both soil consortia and levels of pollutants. Significantly, ...

  • Advanced Environmental Monitoring

    When dealing with environmental concerns such as climate change or pollution, accurate environmental monitoring is a prerequisite for undertaking any course of action. This book deals with recent developments and applications of environmental monitoring technologies, with emphasis on rapidly progressing optical and biological methods. Written by ...

  • Biomonitors and Biomarkers as Indicators of Environmental Change

    Introduction to Biomonitors and Biomarkers as Indicators of Environmental Change; F.M. Butterworth. Assessing Ecological Risks in Terrestrial Systems with Honey Bees; J.J. Bromenshenk, et al. Aquatic Insects as Biomonitors of Ecosystem Health in the Great Lakes Areas of Concern; L.D. Corkum, et al. Larvae of Chironomidae (Diptera) as ...

  • Scattered and Filtered Solar UV Measurements

    Scattered and Filtered Solar UV Measurements provides comprehensive information about the scattered and filtered solar UV environment, the techniques to measure this radiation and the resulting UV exposures to humans. The incidence of skin cancer and sun-related eye disorders can be reduced by the minimization of exposures to UV radiation. For ...

  • Atmospheric and Biological Environmental Monitoring

    The harmful impacts of pollution on atmospheric, terrestrial and aquatic environments can cause extreme temperature changes, clean water shortage, and increase toxicity. This book studies environmental pollution impacts, from the mechanism of toxic nanoparticles on the molecular level to the detection of trace gas on the satellite perspective. It ...

  • Biosafety in Industrial Biotechnology

    This book gives a practical approach to the industrial and international regulatory aspects of biosafety in biotechnology. Chapters cover relevant local legal requirements, policy-making bodies and regulatory agencies, providing practical guidelines to industry on how to comply with regulations. Industrial aspects covered include a review of ...

  • Environmental Monitoring of Bacteria

    Clive Edwards and his distinguished panel of researchers bring together a collection of detailed molecular methods for the environmental monitoring of bacterial populations. These state-of-the-art methods include techniques for the recovery of cells, for the analysis of whole cells, and for the molecular study of target species and heterogeneous ...

  • Natural Disasters as Interactive Components of Global-Ecodynamics

    Large-scale natural catastrophes are environmental phenomena. Numerous studies in recent years have concluded that the frequency of occurrence of such natural disasters have been incereasing. leading to an enhanced risk of very considerable human and economic losses and the widespread destruction and pollution of habitats, settlements and ...

  • Biosensors for the Environmental Monitoring of Aquatic Systems

    There is an increasing need for effective methods of estimating the risks caused by the large number of pollutants released into the environment by human activities. This volume provides an overview of biosensors as a key tool for the environmental monitoring of aquatic systems. Biosensor technology is based on a specific biological recognition ...
