  • Hydropolitical Vulnerability & Resilience Along International Waters - ASIA

    There is an increasing annual demand for water drawn from Asia’s international rivers for domestic, agricultural, industrial, and environment purposes. As a result, nations sharing river systems, lakes and aquifers are vulnerable to tensions and conflicts, which in many are intensified by climate variation and climate change. Therefore ...

  • Sediment and Contaminant Transport in Surface Waters

    Contaminated bottom sediments and their negative impacts on water quality are a major problem in surface waters. Sediment and Contaminant Transport in Surface Waters provides a quantitative understanding of the transport of sediments and hydrophobic contaminants. With an emphasis on fine-grained, cohesive sediments and mixtures of fine-grained and ...

  • Effects of Water Chemistry on Bioavailability and Toxicity of Waterborne Cadmium, Copper, Nickel, Lead, and Zinc on Freshwater Organisms

    This book reviews the history of the regulation of cationic-metal discharges, the variety of water quality conditions into which metals can be discharged, the different types of geochemical speciation models that are used to predict cationic-metal availability over a range of water quality conditions, and the large amount of research related to ...

  • Estrogens and Xenoestrogens in the Aquatic Environment: An Integrated Approach for Field Monitoring and Effect Assessment

    In 1999, the Health Council of The Netherlands recommended an investigation into the occurrence and effects of estrogenic compounds in surface waters and its potential effects on aquatic organisms. As a result, the Dutch government initiated a broad investigation into the occurrence of these types of contaminants and their effects on fish in the ...

  • Practical Handbook of Environmental Site Characterization and Ground-Water Monitoring, Second Edition

    Published in 1991, the first edition of The Practical Handbook of Ground-Water Monitoring quickly became the gold standard reference on the topic of ground-water monitoring. But, as in all rapidly evolving fields, regulations change, technology advances, methods improve, and research reveals flaws in prior thinking. As a consequence, books that ...

  • Exterior Insulation Finish Systems (EIFS): Materials, Properties, and Performance

  • Microbiology Influenced Corrosion Testing

    A review of the state-of-the-art of microbiology influenced corrosion (MIC) testing in the early 1990s. Many industrial needs in the area of MIC testing are identified in these papers along with the latest laboratory and field testing techniques. Strategies to monitor and control corrosion and biofouling in water distribution systems, underground ...

  • Monitoring Water in the 1990's: Meeting New Challenges

    11 chapters: • General Specifications, Technical Resources, and Statistical Methods• Sampling of Water and Water-Formed Deposits, and Surveillance of Water• Methods of Radiochemical Analysis• Inorganic Constituents in Water• Methods for Analysis for Organic substances in Water• Sediments• Membranes and Ion ...

  • Kinetics of Water-Rock Interaction

    The geochemistry of the earth’s surface is controlled by chemical equilibrium, and the kinetics of the approach toward equilibrium. Many low temperature processes, such as weathering, do not reach equilibrium except over geologically long time periods. The approach to equilibrium can be described by kinetic theory and the application of kinetic ...

  • The Freshwater Ecosystems of Suriname

    Since the limnological research on the man-made Brokopondo Reservoir in the 'sixties, numerous data have been collected on the ecology of Surinam rivers and swamps. This book is a compilation of these data: it is the first comprehensive survey of the aquatic ecology of one of the peripheral areas of Amazonia. The geomorphology of the country, ...

  • The First International Lake Ladoga Symposium

    Lake Ladoga is the largest lake in Europe and, with its surface of 17,891 km2 and volume of 837 km3, it ranks among the top fifteen of the world's freshwater bodies. The ecological condition of Lake Ladoga is of concern to several million people living in its surroundings. There is evidence of water quality degradation and gradual ...

  • Water and the Search for Life on Mars

    Mars has long been believed to have been cold, dead and dry for aeons, but there is now striking new proof that not only was Mars a relatively warm and wet place in geologically recent times, but that even today there are vast reserves of water frozen beneath the planet’s surface. As well as casting fascinating new insights into Mars’ past, this ...

  • Nature and Significance of the Recent Carbonate Mound Record

    Carbonate mounds are an important feature along the European North-Atlantic margins. The presence of giant carbonate mounds in the Porcupine Seabight, on the Porcupine Bank, in the Rockall Trough and on the Rockall Bank, west of Ireland, have been known since the nineties and have been the target of several cruises during the last decade. However, ...

  • Lake Taihu, China

    There are many shallow lakes in the world. Many of them play an important socio-economic role as contributors to the drinking water supply, in flood attenuation, fisheries and recreation activities. Because of the current anthropogenic changes in the environment, such lakes rapidly respond to eutrophication and swamping. It is often hard to ...
