Environmental Sampling Books

  • Rapid Bioassessment of Stream Health

    Regulatory agencies can only determine if the streams that they are examining fall within guidelines once a stream health classification system has been developed. This book describes the processes needed to create a regional system for assessing the health of streams using a relatively rapid system of analysis. The author presents unbiased ...

  • Guidelines for acoustic surveys in the northwest African region - Directives pour les campagnes acoustiques dans la région de l'Afrique du Nord-Ouest

    This manual provides a guide to the survey routines that should be followed during hydro- acoustic fish abundance surveys in the northwest African region for a harmonized coverage. The guidelines could, however, also be useful for other regions with similar environmental characteristics and marine resources. The manual covers topics such as survey ...

  • Metrology of Pedestrian Locomotion and Slip Resistance

    Fall accidents, which occur as a result of not enough friction available between the floor and shoe bottom for the pedestrian to ambulate without slipping, are responsible for a great number of walkway accidents. For this reason, characterizations of how much friction pedestrians require to ambulate and how much friction is available between the ...

  • Sampling Environmental Media

    STP 1282 is the first publication of its kind to address the vast array of challenges involved with obtaining accurate environmental specimens for pollution evaluation and remediation. 31 comprehensive peer-reviewed papers from leading experts in the fields of chemistry, geology, engineering, biology and risk assessment explore innovative ...

  • Statistical Sampling: Past, Present and Future Theoretical and Practical

    Explanations, amplifications, and applications on statistical sampling. 8 peer-reviewed papers include: • Gy's Particulate Material sampling Theory • Acceptance Sampling--Past, Present, and Future • Skip Lot Sampling • History and Perspective • Sampling Terms of ...

  • Modeling Dynamic Biological Systems

    Models help us understand the nonlinear dynamics of real-world processes by using the computer to mimic the actual forces that are known or assumed to result in a system's behavior. The complexity of biological systems, from cells to ecosystems, are particularly well suited to this method because the feedback processes governing them have made it ...

  • ASTM Standards on Environmental Sampling: 3rd Edition (Print)

    This comprehensive new edition provides 118 of the latest ASTM standards relevant to environmental sample collection and handling. When performing environmental site characterization, emphasis must be placed on preparing a thorough detailed sampling plan, selecting the most technically correct sampling methods and equipment for the ...

  • Meteorites

    Meteorites - as well as shooting stars and meteors - result from a collision of a solid body from space with our Earth, but only meteorites are able to penetrate the Earth's protective shield, the atmosphere, and fall to the Earth's surface. Before the return of lunar samples, they were the only materials from beyond the Earth which we could take ...

  • The Composition of Matter

    This volume consists of papers developed from a joint ACE/ISSI symposium on the 'Composition of Matter' honoring the occasion of Johannes Geiss's 80th birthdayThe purpose of the symposium was to explore new insights into the composition of solar-system and galactic matter, and fractionation processes affecting samples of this matter, that have ...

  • Chiral Environmental Pollutants

    The central topic of the book is to present the state of the art and future development of environmental enantioselective trace analysis. Areas such as toxicology, ecotoxicology, synthetic chemistry, biology, physics are also covered in detail in order to explain the different properties of enantiomers in environmental samples. This monograph ...
