  • The Eastern Mediterranean as a Laboratory Basin for the Assessment of Contrasting Ecosystems

    The Eastern Mediterranean is the most nutrient impoverished and oligotrophic water body known. The unique feature of the Mediterranean is the presence of an eastward longitudinal trend in available nitrate/phosphate ratios, which apparently induces a west-to-east variation in the structure of the pelagic food web and trophic interactions. In ...

    Implementation of Biological Filtration for the Treatment of Cyanobacterial Metabolites

    Specific issues investigated in this project were: Identifying the most effective substrate for optimum biofilm formation, and the range of operating conditions for optimum removals to be achieved; Developing a standard suite of laboratory tests, both simulated filtration tests and genetic tests, to identify the potential of an existing filter to ...

  • Water-Rock Interaction: Proceedings of the 12th International Symposium on Water-Rock Interaction, Kunming, China, 31 Ju

    The hydrosphere and lithosphere intersect in a zone a few kilometres wide at the earth’s surface, resulting in the formation of magmas, metamorphic rocks and mineral deposits, and placing important controls on the evolution of landscapes. This interaction imparts chemistry to waters and provides the essential environment for ecosystems to ...

  • Durability of Building and Construction Sealants and Adhesives

    Twenty-eight peer-reviewed papers, reflecting the latest information on sealant and adhesive durability, cover: Field Experience with Sealed Joints and Adhesive Fixations—discusses a novel secondary drainage system for architectural panel walls, consisting of tubes and joint protection collection reservoirs with one-way valves; the ...

  • Lake Veluwe, a Macrophyte-Dominated System under Eutrophication Stress

    The structure and functioning of eutrophicated aquatic ecosystems has received considerable attention from limnologists as well as water managers in recent years. Stress has often been on pelagic food webs of deeper lakes whilst littoral systems or shallower lakes have been less thoroughly investigated. Since Dutch aquatic systems are ...

  • Metals in Society and in the Environment

    In 2002, the Swedish Metal Information Task Force (MITF) engaged the Environmental Research Group (MFG) to update previous monographs on copper, zinc and major alloying metals (such as chromium, nickel and molybdenum) in society and in the environment. This book presents new results on metal fluxes from society to the environment, on metal ...

  • Corrosion of Metals; Wear and Erosion

    Tests, practices, and guides detail standard procedures, both field and laboratory, which measure atmospheric corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, corrosion fatigue, corrosion in natural waters and soil, and in-plant corrosion. This volume also includes tests and practices on how to assess wear and erosion of materials and ...

  • Chemistry of Aquatic Systems: Local and Global Perspectives

    Aquatic systems play a salient role in the complex processes of energy and matter exchange between the geosphere and the atmosphere. Furthermore, the inextricable links between the water cycle, the geosphere and the atmosphere ensure that apparently localized environmental problems are increasingly seen to have impacts in other parts of the ...

    Treatment of Micropollutants in Water and Wastewater

    Over the last few years there has been a growing concern over the increasing concentration of micropollutants originating from a great variety of sources including pharmaceutical, chemical engineering and personal care product industries in rivers, lakes, soil and groundwater. As most of the micropollutants are polar and persistent compounds, they ...

  • Fate of Pharmaceuticals in the Environment and in Water Treatment Systems

    Found in concentrations at the parts-per-trillion or low parts-per-billion, the detection of pharmaceutical residues remained elusive until instruments such as liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry became commonplace in environmental laboratories. As a result, the occurrence of pharmaceutical residues and endocrine disrupting chemicals in water ...

  • Wear and Erosion; Metal Corrosion

    Tests, practices, and guides detail standard procedures, both field and laboratory, which measure atmospheric corrosion, stress corrosion cracking and corrosion fatigue, corrosion in natural waters and soil, and in-plant corrosion. This volume also includes tests and practices on how to assess wear and erosion of materials and structures. ...

  • Sediment Dynamics and Pollutant Mobility in Rivers

    This is the first interdisciplinary book on the mobilization of nutrients and pollutants in the water phase due to hydrodynamic processes. In its ten chapters, a broad set of practical process knowledge is presented, comprising simulation techniques, laboratory and in-situ studies on the interaction between biological, chemical and hydrodynamic ...

  • Planet Mars

    Mars, like planet Earth, is a complex and vast world with a long history. The authors of this book give a new insight of Mars by adopting an original outline based on history rather than on subtopic (atmosphere, surface, interior). They focus on the past and present evolution of Mars and also incorporate all the recent results from the space ...

  • Pesticide Formulations and Application Systems: 3rd Symposium

    15 papers address: the use of entomopathogens to control insects; the effects of formulation and aerial application techniques on microbial insecticides; laboratory sprayers used to evaluate the compatibility of tank mixes; effective control of aquatic pests; and selection of appropriate carriers for water-dispersible ...

  • Resilient Modulus Testing for Pavement Components

    Nineteen peer-reviewed papers address the latest issues affecting the resilient modulus test and use of the test results. Resilient modulus indicates the stiffness of a soil under controlled confinement conditions and repeated loading. The test is intended to simulate the stress conditions that occur in the base and subgrade of a pavement ...
