The topics include chemodynamics, toxicology, modeling and information systems.Due to the wealth of information on this topic, the texts of T. Kassim (ed.): Environmental Impact Assessment are published in three separate ...

  • Mediterranean Land-surface Processes Assessed from Space

    The book describes the steps which lead from the raw signals measured in space to firstly calibrated an comparable long term data sets and in a second step to information for user communities. From the primarily spectral radiances information is inferred which is needed in the context of modeling climate variability such as the variable surface ...

  • Contaminated Ground Water and Sediment: Modeling for Management and Remediation

    Billions of dollars are spent annually on surface and groundwater remediation, generating a demand by the public and government for effective modeling of contaminant fate and transport, with the hope that accurate models will result in the effective application of remediation efforts-and an efficient distribution of remediation ...

  • Radiation and Water in the Climate System

    The science of the earth's climate requires reliable global data sets to validate numerical simulation models and to identify regional and global fluctuations and trends. This book presents ways to derive such data from space-borne and ground-based passive and active measurements in the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Both descriptions of the ...

  • Kinetics of Water-Rock Interaction

    The geochemistry of the earth’s surface is controlled by chemical equilibrium, and the kinetics of the approach toward equilibrium. Many low temperature processes, such as weathering, do not reach equilibrium except over geologically long time periods. The approach to equilibrium can be described by kinetic theory and the application of kinetic ...

  • Computational Methods in Water Resources

    These volumes contain the proceedings of CMWR2002, which was hosted by the Faculty of Civil Engineering & Geosciences at Delft University of Technology. The interest in this meeting was truly overwhelming: around 230 papers from leading scientists were submitted and accepted for publication in the proceedings. The actual scope of the meeting was ...

  • Encyclopedia of Hydrology and Water Resources

    The fresh water supplies of the Earth are finite and as the world's population continues to grow humanity's thirst for this water seems unquenchable. Intense pressure is being exerted upon freshwater resources and a lack of adequate clean water is seen as one of the most serious global problems for the 21st century. Indeed it has been said ...

  • Water Resources Management

    The world's water resources are being tapped at an ever increasing rate, to the extent that sustainability and water quality are being compromised. This book provides the technology for managing water resources to reduce risks. Besides controlling floods, overcoming droughts and reducing pollution, the reader will learn to plan and maintain ...

  • Dynamic Modeling of Environmental Systems

    Dynamic Modeling of Environmental Systems is a primer on using models to understand environmental problems. With their many natural, economic, political, and technical aspects, environmental problems require a systems approach. This book provides an introduction to modeling concepts and applications that is specifically geared toward the ...

  • Water Management at Abandoned Flooded Underground Mines

    Switching off the pumps of a mine is one of the last steps in the lifetime of a surface or underground mine. As the water in the open space raises, the water might become contaminated with different pollutants and eventually starts to flow in the open voids. This book addresses the processes related to mine abandonment from a hydrogeological ...

  • Efficient Numerical Methods and Information-Processing Techniques for Modeling Hydro- and Environmental Systems

    Numerical simulation models have become indispensable in hydro- and environmental sciences and engineering. This monograph presents a general introduction to numerical simulation in environment water, based on the solution of the equations for groundwater flow and transport processes, for multiphase and multicomponent flow and transport processes ...

  • Effects of Water Chemistry on Bioavailability and Toxicity of Waterborne Cadmium, Copper, Nickel, Lead, and Zinc on Freshwater Organisms

    This book reviews the history of the regulation of cationic-metal discharges, the variety of water quality conditions into which metals can be discharged, the different types of geochemical speciation models that are used to predict cationic-metal availability over a range of water quality conditions, and the large amount of research related to ...

  • Principles of Snow Hydrology

    Principles of Snow Hydrology describes the factors that control the accumulation, melting and runoff of water from seasonal snowpacks over the surface of the earth. The book addresses not only the basic principles governing snow in the hydrologic cycle, but also the latest applications of remote sensing, and techniques for modeling streamflow from ...
