  • Water Auditing and Water Conservation, 2nd Edition

    Water auditing is a method of quantifying water flows and quality in simple or complex systems, with a view to reducing water usage and often saving money on otherwise unnecessary water use. There is an increasing awareness around the globe of the centrality of water to our lives. This awareness crosses political and social boundaries. In many ...

  • Dynamic and Mobile GIS: Investigating Changes in Space and Time

    With the widespread use of PDAs, wireless internet, Internet-based GIS, and 3G and 4G telecommunications, the technology supporting mobile GIS is rapidly gaining popularity and effectiveness. Dynamic and Mobile GIS: Investigating Changes in Space and Time addresses Web GIS, mobile GIS, and the modeling, processing, and representation of dynamic ...

  • Satellite Monitoring of Inland and Coastal Water Quality: Retrospection, Introspection, Future Directions

    Satellite Monitoring of Inland and Coastal Water Quality: Retrospection, Introspection, Future Directions reviews how aquatic optics models can convert remote determinations of water color into accurate assessments of water quality. This book illustrates how this conversion can generate products of value for the environmental monitoring of ...

  • Remote Sensing and GIS for Site Characterization: Applications and Standards

    The latest practical uses for remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) for definitive site evaluation. This comprehensive publication also features 35 state-of-the-art color graphics.17 peer-reviewed papers from an international team of scientists and engineers are divided into 5 areas: Two keynote papers discuss remote sensing and ...

  • geoENV II - Geostatistics for Environmental Applications

    This book contains selected contributions from the geoENV98 - the Second European Conference on Geostatistics for Environmental Sciences, held in Valencia, Spain in November 1998. This second book of the geoENV series illustrates the developments on geostatistics as applied to the environmental sciences which have occurred during the past ...

  • Limnology and Remote Sensing

    Diminishing water resources are becoming of increasing concern because in many countries the sources of drinking water are close to being exhausted. Therefore, there is an urgent need to study and assess the various components of global water resources, of which freshwater lakes are one of the most important. This book discusses contemporary ...

  • Aquatic Telemetry

    This volume provides a selection of the most significant papers presented at the Fourth Conference on Fish Telemetry in Europe, in Trondheim, Norway, in 2001. Papers are focused on migratory patterns and habitat utilisation, social behaviour, physiological ecology, fisheries management, effects of human impact on fish populations, aquaculture and ...

  • Developments in Fish Telemetry

    This volume includes 33 peer-reviewed papers presented at the Sixth Conference on Fish Telemetry held in Europe (Sesimbra, Portugal, 5-11 June 2005). The papers focus on the application of aquatic telemetry techniques by scientists to investigate fundamental aspects of animal biology in order to conserve and manage natural resources. The topics ...

  • 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 ...

  • Optimal Observation for Cyber-physical Systems

    Cyber-physical systems (CPS) embody the interaction between a computing system and a physical process, being distinguished from traditional embedded systems by being designed as networks of interacting elements rather than as isolated devices. The wireless sensor networks (WSNs) which are the focus of the research presented here are examples of ...

  • The Behavior and Sensory Biology of Elasmobranch Fishes An Anthology in memory of Donald Richard Nelson

    The elasmobranch fishes include the living sharks, skates and rays that are important members of nearly all marine ecosystems. Their large size, secretive behavior, and wide-ranging habits make them difficult to observe in the field or to maintain in captivity. Consequently, little is known about their natural behavior and how it is mediated ...

  • Behavioural Brain Research in Naturalistic and Semi-Naturalistic Settings

    A comprehensive review of behavioural neurosciences in an ecological context, covering both theories and experimental procedures. Special attention is placed on the hippocampus and its relation to spatial learning in different species, such as food-storing birds, homing pigeons, kangaroo rats and laboratory rodents. Various methodological ...

  • Remote Sensing of Aquatic Coastal Ecosystem Processes

    The aquatic coastal zone is one of the most challenging targets for environmental remote sensing. Properties such as bottom reflectance, spectrally diverse suspended sediments and phytoplankton communities, diverse benthic communities, and transient events that affect surface reflectance (coastal blooms, runoff, etc.) all combine to produce an ...
