    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 ...

  • Crafting Superior Environmental Enforcement Solutions

    The “environmental police” are very much on the beat, requiring cleanup and meting out punishments for transgressions of U.S. law. In fiscal year 1999, the U.S. EPA concluded enforcement cases requiring a record $3.6 billion for environmental cleanup, pollution control equipment, pollution prevention, and improved monitoring. And, as ...

  • Soil Pollution

    Unique among the soil literature, this graduate-level text and reference treats the subjects related to the interdisciplinary fields of soil pollution and remediation. After a thorough and comprehensible introduction to the relevant fundamentals of the mineralogy, chemistry, and properties of soil, readers are well prepared to understand the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Viable Methods of Soil and Water Pollution Monitoring, Protection and Remediation

    The objective of this book is to summarize and critically assess the current status, development trends and needs of three basic defensive elements that safeguard the quality and environmental safety of soil and water/sediments: early warning monitoring, protection and remediation measures, with particular regard to the viability of methods and ...

International academics and air pollution experts address various aspects of air pollution and provide an insight into the science and policy ...

  • Environmental Challenges

    In the summer of 1999, an international group of experts convened in Jerusalem, Israel, in order to define the major environmental challenges facing humanity at the dawn of the new millennium and - where possible - propose ways of addressing them. Almost 50 selected articles are collected in the present book, which constitutes a striking ...

  • Industrial Air Pollution Monitoring

    Developed from a short course taught at Leeds University, this book covers methods of monitoring emissions of air pollutants from stationary sources. It surveys the techniques and points out their advantages and disadvantages. ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • The subalpine lake ecosystem, Øvre Heimdalsvatn, and its catchment: local and global changes over the last 50 years

    This book summarizes research from the intensive study of a pristine subalpine lake ecosystem and its catchment over the last 50 years. A wide range of topics is presented, including several unique time series focusing on changes in ice cover, water temperature, zooplankton, benthos and fish. Significant changes in the lake fauna after the ...

  • The Forgotten Pollution

    The increasing pace of industrialization throughout the world has brought with it a serious and ever increasing threat from air pollution. It is true that this threat is being taken seriously, and that many responsible research workers, government advisors and others are working towards its reduction. But air pollution seems to have something ...

  • Instrument Development for Atmospheric Research and Monitoring

    The growth in our understanding of the production, transformation and loss of pollutants and trace substances in the atmosphere has followed closely the development of instrumentation for both in situ and remote measurements of the minute concentrations and fluxes of trace substances. In recent times the requirement has been for instruments which ...
