  • Protecting the Ozone Layer

    Protecting the Ozone Layer: Lessons, Models, and Prospects Since the mid-1980s, the international community has adopted several significant instruments designed to reverse the degradation of the life support systems of the planet. None of these international agreements have been as successful as the 1987 Montreal Protocol in creating the ...

  • Ozone Reaction Kinetics for Water and Wastewater Systems

    Interest in ozonation for drinking water and wastewater treatment has soared in recent years due to ozone´s potency as a disinfectant, and the increasing need to control disinfection byproducts that arise from the chlorination of water and wastewater. ...

  • Safeguarding the Ozone Layer and the Global Climate System

    Scientific evidence linking chlorofluorocarbons and other ozone-depleting substances to global ozone depletion led to the initial control of chemicals under the 1987 Montreal Protocol. Since then it has been realized that some actions taken to reduce future depletion of the ozone layer could also influence global warming. When the Kyoto Protocol ...

  • Chemistry of Ozone in Water and Wastewater Treatment

    Even though ozone has been applied for a long time for disinfection and oxidation in water treatment, there is lack of critical information related to transformation of organic compounds. This has become more important in recent years, because there is considerable concern about the formation of potentially harmful degradation products as well as ...

  • OASIS: OzonAction Strategic Information System

    Developed by the UNEP TIE OzonAction Programme under the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol, OASIS is an easy-to-use CD-ROM-based reference system that provides essential resource material related to the implementation of the Protocol. Although it is designed primarily for National Ozone Units (NOUs), industry ...

  • The Stratosphere and Its Role in the Climate System

    This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the stratosphere and its role in our understanding of the climate system. The key dynamic, radiative, and chemical processes that determine the distribution of chemical compounds including ozone in the stratosphere are discussed. The chapters contributed by outstanding experts focus not only on ...

  • Global-Regional Linkages in the Earth System

    This book synthesizes current knowledge of regional-global linkages in four regions to demonstrate that study of environmental change on a regional scale can enhance understanding of global-scale environmental changes. The atmospheric circulation over Southern Africa links regional nutrient and pollutant sources to distant sinks affecting both ...

  • Industry Initiatives: The Montreal Protocol

    This easy-to-use compact reference system provides essential resource material related to industry's response to the Montreal Protocol. The case studies included on this CD-ROM, not only show the success of the treaty, but also different companies' efforts to develop reliable alternatives to Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS). Although specifically ...

  • Causes and Environmental Implications of Increased UV-B Radiation

    Since the realisation that the ozone layer protecting the earth is suffering massive depletion, atmospheric science has been increasingly in the spotlight. It is recognised that we need to increase our knowledge and understanding of the likely impact that increases in UV-B radiation will have on life on earth.Charting research that encompasses the ...
