    Balancing coverage of theoretical and practical principles, Fundamentals of Water Treatment Unit Processes comprehensively explores physical-chemical and biological unit processes applicable to water treatment. Concise yet comprehensive, the text reviews historical development and then highlights key concepts for each unit process. With chapter ...

  • Hydropolitical Vulnerability & Resilience along International Waters EUROPE

    The hydro-vulnerability of Europe is governed by the institutions created to resolve transboundary water issues in a cooperative manner that attempts to prevent potential conflict.Institutional capacity through water management bodies, treaties or generally positive international relations, is possibly more important than the physical environment ...

  • Ecological Climatology: Concepts and Applications, 2nd Edition

    This book reviews basic meteorological, hydrological and ecological concepts to examine the physical, chemical and biological processes by which terrestrial ecosystems affect and are affected by climate. The textbook is written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying ecology, environmental science, atmospheric science and ...

  • Biogeochemistry of Wetlands: Science and Applications

    Wetland ecosystems maintain a fragile balance of soil, water, plant, and atmospheric components in order to regulate water flow, flooding, and water quality. Marginally covered in traditional texts on biogeochemistry or on wetland soils, Biogeochemistry of Wetlands is the first to focus entirely on the biological, geological, physical, and ...

  • Predator-Prey Dynamics: The Role of Olfaction

    Humans, being visually oriented, are well versed in camouflage and how animals hide from predators that use vision to locate prey. However, many predators do not hunt by sight, they hunt by scent. This raises the question: do survival mechanisms and behaviors exist which allow animals to hide from these olfactory predators?  If so, what are they, ...

  • Water Treatment Unit Processes: Physical and Chemical

    The unit process approach, common in the field of chemical engineering, was introduced about 1962 to the field of environmental engineering. An understanding of unit processes is the foundation for continued learning and for designing treatment systems. The time is ripe for a new textbook that delineates the role of unit process principles in ...

  • Water Flow In Soils, Second Edition

    The new edition of a bestseller, Water Flow in Soils bridges the fields of soil physics-where descriptions of water flow tend to be microscopic- and hydrology - where they tend to be macroscopic. Unlike other physics laden texts, this work conveys the fundamental concepts of water flow in soils with clear and essentially nonmathematical ...

  • Baltic Sea - GIWA Regional Assessment 17

    This report presents the GIWA assessment of the Baltic Sea region, one of the largest brackish water areas in the world. It is a semi-enclosed sea, which together with other physical as well as socio-economic characteristics makes it very sensitive to anthropogenic ...

  • Scaling Methods in Soil Physics

    The scaling issue remains one of the largest problems in soil science and hydrology. This book is a unique compendium of ideas, conceptual approaches, techniques, and methodologies for scaling soil physical properties. Scaling Methods in Soil Physics covers many methods of scaling that will be useful in helping scientists across a range of ...

  • Physical-Chemical Treatment of Water and Wastewater

    The books currently available on this subject contain some elements of physical-chemical treatment of water and wastewater but fall short of giving comprehensive and authoritative coverage. They contain some equations that are not substantiated, offering empirical data based on assumptions that are therefore difficult to comprehend. This text ...

  • Physical and Chemical Processes of Water and Solute Transport/Retention in Soils

    Transport and retention of water, nutrients, and inorganic and organic contaminants in the environment is greatly affected by physical and chemical processes in porous media such as soils. To definitively understand these processes, multiple scales--ranging from the landscape to the molecular--be investigated. Topics include fractal and spatial ...

  • Physical Oceanography of the Adriatic Sea

    This monograph is the first book on the oceanography of the Adriatic Sea. It is a synthesis between the physical oceanography of the Adriatic Sea, its water masses, overall circulation and regional dynamics as well as its connection to the rest of the Mediterranean Sea. Topical coverage ranges from historical surveys to contemporary methods ...

  • Comets

    The book covers the most recent ideas about the nature and dynamics of comets, including a thorough discussion on Oort cloud dynamics which has not received due attention in other books on the subject. It also discusses the most relevant aspects of the physics and chemistry of comet nuclei, highlighting their importance as relics of the ...

  • Stream Ecology

    Running waters are enormously diverse, ranging from torrential mountain brooks, to large lowland rivers, to great river systems whose basins occupy subcontinents. While this diversity makes river ecosystems seem overwhelmingly complex, a central theme of this volume is that the processes acting in running waters are general, although the settings ...

  • Watercourse Co-operation in Northern Europe

    One of the problems in global water management is the sharing of watercourses by neighbouring countries, a situation that continues to lead to many long-lasting conflicts. The authors of this book make a valuable contribution to ongoing attempts to find sustainable solutions to this problem and to the debate on global water scarcity in general. ...

  • Induced Seismicity

    A workshop on Induced Seismicity was organized during the 27th General Assembly of the International Association of Seismology and Physics of Earth's Interior (IASPEI) in Wellington, New Zealand during January 10-21, 1994. This volume presents a collection of 16 papers accepted for publication which accrued from this workshop. The first three ...

  • Natural Physical Sources of Underwater Sound

    The generation of oceanic sound by natural physical mechanisms is a topic of scientific inquiry with a wide range of applications, both environmental and naval. Sound is generated by waves interacting, by waves breaking, by wind noise transmitted directly into, and by rain, snow and spray falling onto the water. Sound is also generated in ...

  • Dynamics of Surface Waves in Coastal Waters

    Wave motion is one of the broadest scientific subjects in nature, especially water waves in the near-shore region which present more richness and complexity of variability with respect to deep-water waves. Dynamics of Surface Waves in Coastal Waters: Wave-Current-Bottom Interactions develops the typical basic theories (e.g. mild-slope equation and ...

  • Planetary Aeronomy

    Planetary Aeronomy is a modern and concise introduction to the underlying physical and chemical processes that govern the formation and evolution of the upper atmospheres of planets. The general approach employed permits consideration of the growing number of extrasolar planets, the detailed observation of which will become possible over the next ...
