  • Modelling Sustainable Development

    This insightful book explores the issue of sustainable development in its more operative and applied sense. Although a great deal of research has addressed potential interpretations and definitions of sustainable development, much of this work is too abstract to offer policy-makers and researchers the feasible and effective guidelines they ...

  • The 3-D Global Spatial Data Model: Foundation of the Spatial Data Infrastructure

    Traditional methods for handling spatial data are encumbered by the assumption of separate origins for horizontal and vertical measurements. Modern measurement systems operate in a 3-D spatial environment. The 3-D Global Spatial Data Model: Foundation of the Spatial Data Infrastructure offers a new model for handling digital spatial data, the ...

  • Programming ArcObjects with VBA: A Task-Oriented Approach, Second Edition

    If you're ready to take your knowledge of ArcGIS to the next level, then you need to learn how to work with ArcObjects. But with thousands of objects, properties, and methods, how can you ever hope to sort through the ArcObjects model diagrams?The first edition of Chang's Programming ArcObjects with VBA: A Task-Oriented Approach gave us the ...

  • A Practical Guide to Particle Counting for Drinking Water Treatment

    As EPA standards for water quality have tightened in recent years, the need to more accurately assess filter performance and improve the overall treatment process has led to increased demand for the high sensitivity provided by particle counters. One particle counter can give you more data than a dozen turbidimeters-if you know how to sort through ...

  • Cleaner Production in Pulp and Paper Mills: A training resource package.

    The manual grew out of a successful UNEP effort to promote cleaner production in the Asian pulp and paper industry (the NIEM project), which was supported financially by the Swedish Government. Because the manual is also applicable to other regions, UNEP has published it for worldwide use.UNEP has released a new training resource manual as part of ...

  • Sanitation Promotion

    A collection of original articles, case studies, checklists, worksheets, and stimulating ideas aimed at raising the profile of sanitation and thus attracting the assistance and investments needed to make progress. Noting that tremendous efforts over the past two decades have had little impact on sanitary conditions for much of the world, the book ...

  • Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation. The PHAST Initiative

    Describes an exciting new approach, based on an innovative set of participatory techniques, that has demonstrated its ability to promote hygienic behaviour, sanitation improvements, and community management of water and sanitation facilities. Known as the Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation, or PHAST, initiative, the approach was ...

  • The Basics of S-PLUS

    This book explains the basics of S-PLUS in a clear style at a level suitable for people with little computing or statistical knowledge. Unlike the manuals, it is not comprehensive, but instead introduces the most important ideas of S-PLUS and R, its companion in implementing the S language.The authors take the reader on a journey into the world of ...

  • The Science and Politics of Global Climate Change

    In this accessible primer, Dessler and Parson combine their expertise in atmospheric science and public policy to help scientists, policy makers, and the public sort through the conflicting claims in the climate-change debate. The authors explain how scientific and policy debates work, summarize present scientific knowledge and uncertainty about ...

  • Materials for Lithium-Ion Batteries

    A lithium-ion battery comprises essentially three components: two intercalation compounds as positive and negative electrodes, separated by an ionic-electronic electrolyte. Each component is discussed in sufficient detail to give the practising engineer an understanding of the subject, providing guidance on the selection of suitable materials ...

  • Natural Production of Organohalogen Compounds

    This book summarizes the state-of-the-art knowledge on naturally occurring organohalogens, of which more than 3700 are documented. The chapters cover all aspects of this field, including the structural diversity and sources of organohalogens, the mechanisms for their formation and biodegradation, the clinical use of dichloroacetate, and the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Biodiversity and Conservation in Europe

    This book brings together a selection of original studies submitted to Biodiversity and Conservation that address biodiversity and conservation in Europe. Europe is certainly the most intensively inventoried region of the world; detailed maps are available for species distributions while action plans are being drawn up for species under threat. At ...

  • Biogeography, Time and Place: Distributions, Barriers and Islands

    Biogeography considers the distribution of biological units over a wide range of scales. The units range from genotypes, populations and species to families and higher taxa. Processes can be local, such as the isolation on islands due to sea-level fluctuations, or large-scale tectonic processes that separates continents and creates oceans. In all ...

  • Spatiotemporal Environmental Health Modelling A Tractatus Stochasticus

    Spatiotemporal Environmental Health Modelling: A Tractatus Stochasticus provides a holistic, conceptual and quantitative framework for Environmental Health Modelling in space-time. The holistic framework integrates two aspects of Environmental Health Science that have been previously treated separately: the environmental aspect, which ...

  • Rate-Controlled Separations

    Separations have always been very important in chemical engineering. This importance has escalated with the emergence of new industries in biotechnology and high performance materials. Separations will continue to remain important in bulk chemical manufacturing, petroleumprocessing, and the other standard areas of interest in chemical ...

  • The Life Cycle of Copper, Its Co-Products and Byproducts

    Copper is one of the three most important metals in the world economy, and the only one of the three that is comparatively scarce in the earth's crust. Known reserves will only last a few decades at projected rates of consumption. While some substitution possibilities exist for some of its applications, copper is uniquely valuable as a conductor ...

  • Frontiers in the Science and Technology of Polymer Recycling

    Polymers, main components of plastics and rubbers, are being discarded in increasing quantities. But this waste can also be considered as 'plastic gold'. Public concern, coupled with the inherent value of the material, means that recycling is imperative. The present book presents a survey of current knowledge in the form of case studies, ...
