  • Sediment and Contaminant Transport in Surface Waters

    Contaminated bottom sediments and their negative impacts on water quality are a major problem in surface waters throughout the United States as well as in many other parts of the world. Even after elimination of the primary contaminant sources, these bottom sediments will be a main source of contaminants for many years to come. In order to ...

  • Fair deals for watershed services in Indonesia

    Indonesia, like many countries, faces growing problems with water. Concerns include floods, low dry-season flows, sedimentation, contamination from run-off, and rising demand among competing end-users.Concerned suppliers and users of water at various localities around Indonesia are now experimenting with new approaches for managing watersheds. One ...

  • Contaminated Sediments

    When discussing the issue of contamination of the aquatic environment, water pollution is still the major aspect that has been regulated and extensively studied, but poor attention has been devoted to sediments. Sediments have been described as the sink or storage place and a source for contaminants entering river systems through various pathways. ...

  • Morphology of Crystals

    The molecular mechanisms underlying the fact that a crystal can take a variety of external forms is something we have come to understand only in the last few decades. This is due to recent developments in theoretical and experimental investigations of crystal growth mechanisms. Morphology of Crystals is divided into three separately ...

  • What Sustains Life?

    This book brings together three decades worth of collaborative research to address the question 'What sustains life?' In part a scientific response to Schroedinger's work 'What is Life?' Urry's text contains elements of memoir, history, and a solid, informative scientific core that will interest both the general reader, student, and professional ...

  • Bioinformatics

    Bioinformatics is interpreted as the application of information science to biology, in which it plays a fundamental and all-pervasive role. The field continues to develop intensively in both academia and commercially, and is highly interdisciplinary. This broad-ranging and thoroughly updated second edition covers new findings while retaining the ...
