  • Diagnostic Tools to Evaluate Impacts of Trace Organic Compounds

     With the recent advent of improved analytical and biomarker detection capabilities, a variety of organic chemicals have been found in trace amounts (Trace Organic Chemicals, TOrCs) in surface waters and fish tissue. TOrCs include pharmaceuticals, personal care products, surfactants, pesticides, flame retardants, and other organic chemicals, some ...

  • Natural Attenuation of Trace Element Availability in Soils

    Understanding attenuation processes can be applied not only to predicting the behavior of contaminants in soil and formulating remediation strategies, but also for mitigating and enhancing the availability of micronutrients in soil for agricultural applications. Natural Attenuation of Trace Element Availability in Soils brings together pioneering ...

  • Analysis of Seawater

    It is only in the past few years that methods of adequate sensitivity have become available for true ultra-trace metal determinations in water. In the case of organics in seawater it has now become possible to resolve the complex mixtures of organics in seawater and achieve the required very low detection limits. Fortunately, the interest in ...

  • Computational Life Sciences

    This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the First International Symposium on Computational Life Sciences, CompLife 2005, held in Konstanz, Germany in September 2005.The 21 revised full papers presented together with 3 papers of a workshop on Distributed Data Mining in the Life Sciences (LifeDDM) were carefully reviewed and selected from ...

  • The Bedrock of Opinion

    The issue of nuclear waste is about managing some of the most dangerous material ever to exist. This has to be done safely, and in a way that remains safe for many thousands of years. To realize safe disposal, satisfying bedrock conditions are needed as well as people willing to accept disposal in their own community. In most countries this kind ...

  • Trace Fossil Analysis

    Trace fossils record the behavior of animals at the very spot where they lived millions of years ago. Their growing interest derives from the intimate connection between ichnology and sedimentology and their combined relevance for paleoenvironmental reconstructions, basin analysis, and petroleum exploration.This definitive textbook by a renowned ...

  • Handbook of Soil Analysis

    This handbook is a reference guide for selecting and carrying out numerous methods of soil analysis. It is written in accordance with analytical standards and quality control approaches.It covers a large body of technical information including protocols, tables, formulae, spectrum models, chromatograms and additional analytical diagrams. The ...

  • Biosphere-Atmosphere Exchange of Pollutants and Trace Substances

    The biosphere is the ultimate sink for air pollutants and is also the source of many precursors for the formation of photo-oxidants. In any analysis of air pollution and for determining source-receptor relationships, reliable emission and pollutant concentrations or depositions must be taken into account, together with their interactions between ...

  • Institutional Dynamics in Environmental Governance

    Environmental policy in its broadest context has been significantly revitalized and renewed during the last two decades. That observation is nothing new, attested to by the number of publications, conferences and both private and public projects that have been initiated. However, our understanding of the dynamics of this renewal has generally been ...
