  • Sediment and Contaminant Transport in Surface Waters

    Contaminated bottom sediments and their negative impacts on water quality are a major problem in surface waters. Sediment and Contaminant Transport in Surface Waters provides a quantitative understanding of the transport of sediments and hydrophobic contaminants. With an emphasis on fine-grained, cohesive sediments and mixtures of fine-grained and ...

  • 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 ...

  • Water-Rock Interaction: Proceedings of the 12th International Symposium on Water-Rock Interaction, Kunming, China, 31 July - 5 August 2007

    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 ...

  • Estrogens and Xenoestrogens in the Aquatic Environment: An Integrated Approach for Field Monitoring and Effect Assessment

    In 1999, the Health Council of The Netherlands recommended an investigation into the occurrence and effects of estrogenic compounds in surface waters and its potential effects on aquatic organisms. As a result, the Dutch government initiated a broad investigation into the occurrence of these types of contaminants and their effects on fish in the ...

  • Mountains

    Mountains cover a quarter of the earth's land surface. They provide water for at least half the world's people and they are visited by hundreds of millions of tourists every year. This informative text blends up-to-date information and years of personal experience to raise awareness of our ...

  • The Everglades, Florida Bay, and Coral Reefs of the Florida Keys: An Ecosystem Sourcebook

    Providing a synthesis of basic and applied research, The Everglades, Florida Bay, and Coral Reefs of the Florida Keys: An Ecosystem Sourcebook takes an encyclopedic look at how to study and manage ecosystems connected by surface and subsurface water movements. The book examines the South Florida hydroscape, a series of ecosystems linked by ...

  • Water for Subsurface Injection

    Covers four areas that must be considered in order to develop and maintain a sound, trouble-free water injection system:FiltrationCorrosion QualityReservoir ConsiderationsTreatment ...

  • Oil Field Subsurface Injection of Water

    The symposium on Oil Field Subsurface Injection of Water was presented at a meeting held in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., 17—18 January 1977. The symposium was sponsored by the American Society for Testing and Materials through its Committee D-19 on Water. C. C. Wright, Arabian American Oil Company, Dennis Cross, Aramco, Services Company, A. G. ...

  • 2001 Mars Odyssey

    Mars, the most habitable of our sister planets, holds a special place in our imaginations and in our space exploration program. Fully half of NASA's planetary exploration effort is now devoted to Mars. Key questions include: Has Mars ever harbored life? Is there life on Mars now? Will humans be able to survive on the Martian surface? Answers to ...

  • Süßwasserfauna von Mitteleuropa, Bd. 7/2-2 Chelicerata

    Chelicerata are a basically terrestrial group of invertebrates, including many clades whose representatives have never found an evolutionary way to aquatic live. An exception is made by some spiders and the highly diverse aquatic mites which in inland water habitats are represented by members of numerous different clades having evolved an aquatic ...

  • Computational Methods in Environmental Fluid Mechanics

    Fluids, play an important role in environmental systems, appearing as surface water in rivers, lakes, and coastal regions or in the subsurface as well as in the atmosphere. Mechanics of environmental fluids is concerned with fluid motion, associated mass and heat transport in addition to deformation processes in subsurface systems. In this ...

  • Polarized Light in Animal Vision

    While the human eye can practically cope only with two aspects of light, brightness and colour, many animals use polarization as a further source of visual information. The text starts with an introduction into imaging polarimetry, an efficient technique for measuring light polarization, and moves onto a description of the various polarization ...

  • Ecology of a Glacial Flood Plain

    The book comprehensively evaluates the characteristics and floodplain evolution of Val Roseg on an annual basis for several years. Channel typology, groundwater-surface water hydrology, thermal and chemical regimes are examined. Biotic dynamics of vegetation, aquatic flora, fungi, and surface and interstitial fauna are evaluated in detail. ...

  • Stochastic and Statistical Methods in Hydrology and Environmental Engineering

    Volume 1: (edited by Keith W. Hipel) In this landmark collection of papers, highly respected scientists and engineers from around the world present the latest research results in extreme value analyses for floods and droughts. Two approaches that are commonly employed in flood frequency analyses are the maximum annual flood and partial ...

  • Assessment of the ecological status of European surface waters

    The complex impact that man has on aquatic ecosystems creates a need for assessment systems that are able to adequately appraise and integrate the effects of various pressures. Chemical analysis alone can easily overlook some factors vital for life. With the adoption of the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) in the year 2000 which defined the ...

  • Nutrient Dynamics and Retention in Land/Water Ecotones of Lowland, Temperate Lakes and Rivers

    Ecotones, or boundary zones between land and inland waters (such as lakes, streams and rivers), are the principal routes for transport of organic matter and nutrients across landscapes via physical and biological vectors. The ecotone is the place of cumulation and transformation of in situ production as well as of allochthonous material from ...
