  • Public-private Partnerships in the Water Sector: From Theory to Practice

    Ensuring quality and affordability in the water services is a fundamental requirement for the social, economic and environmental development of modern societies. Achieving this goal requires dealing with a large diversity of challenges, such as efficiency, investment, governance, procurement and sustainability, while ensuring the alignment of the ...

  • Water Communication

      Water Communication aims at setting a first general outlook at what communication on water means, who communicates and on what topics. Through different examples and based on different research and contributions, this book presents an original first overview of “water communication”. It sets its academic value as one distinct scientific domain ...

  • Tuning Biological Nutrient Removal Plants

    Tuning Biological Nutrient Removal Plants increases interest in tuning to enhance both performance and capacity, to provide insight into typical plant operating characteristics, and to stimulate operators' interest in studying the behaviour of their own plants. The book focuses on understanding of plant behavioural characteristics so that optimum ...

  • Water Quality and Agriculture

    This report on Water Quality and Agriculture examines the linkages between agriculture and water quality. It discusses the overall trends and outlook for agriculture and water quality in OECD countries; describes recent actions by policy makers to address water quality issues in agriculture; and provides a set of recommendations for countries to ...

  • Handbook on Particle Separation Processes

    Particles in water play an important role in all kinds of water quality and treatment issues. Since the early beginnings of centralised water production and treatment, the main goal of water purification was primarily the removal of water turbidity in order to produce clear water free from visible particles. The Handbook on Particle Separation ...

  • Marine Wastewater Outfalls and Treatment Systems

    Wastewater disposal by marine outfalls is proven and effective and is a reliable and cost effective solution with minimal environmental impacts. The design and siting of submarine outfalls is a complex task that relies on many disciplines including oceanography, civil and environmental engineering, marine biology, construction, economics, and ...

  • An Assessment of Assessments : Findings of the Group of Experts. Pursuant to UNGA Resolution 60/30

    Despite the central role oceans play in the economic, environmental and social affairs of the planet's 6.7 billion inhabitants, significant gaps exist in our understanding and management of the complex processes at work from the global climate system, to the water cycle and circulation of nutrients, to changes affecting marine habitats. In ...

  • Pesticide Fomulations and Application Systems, 20th Volume

    15 papers address six areas: Regulatory Issues increasingly impact the formulation chemist's job. Papers address how implementation of the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA) is proceeding and describe cooperative efforts between CPDA and EPA regarding the use of "inerts" in pesticide applications. Application and Spray Drift papers cover ...

  • Compensating for Wetland Losses Under the Clean Water Act

    Recognizing the importance of wetland protection, the Bush administration in 1988 endorsed the goal of “no net loss” of wetlands. Specifically, it directed that filling of wetlands should be avoided, and minimized when it cannot be avoided. When filling is permitted, compensatory mitigation must be undertaken; that is, wetlands must be restored, ...

  • Hands On Water and Wastewater Equipment Maintenance, Volume II

    Hands-On Water/Wastewater Equipment Maintenance, Volumes 1 and 2 deals with equipment maintenance as individual components, not as complete machines, allowing more information about the design, application and maintenance requirements of machinery to be presented. This work-related inventory of wastewater covers plant components where breakdowns ...

  • 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 ...

  • Osmotic Power: A Primer

    It’s still very early, but interest is growing in technologies to make electricity from osmosis. Osmotic-power technologies capture energy created when salt water and fresh water mix, a process that happens naturally in deltas and estuaries around the world. But can these technologies overcome efficiency, cost and scale-up challenges quickly ...

  • Water Scarcity, Land Degradation and Desertification in the Mediterranean Region

    This book is the outcome of an international workshop promoted and organised by the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and by the Science for Peace and Security Programme of NATO. Its focus is the emerging issue of environment and security aspects in terms of water scarcity, land degradation and desertification in the ...

  • Hydrothermal Processes and Mineral Systems

    Hydrothermal processes on Earth have played an important role in the evolution of our planet. These processes link the lithosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere in continuously evolving dynamic systems. Terrestrial hydrothermal processes have been active since water condensed to form the hydrosphere, most probably from about 4.4 Ga. The circulation ...

  • Regional Aspects of Climate-Terrestrial-Hydrologic Interactions in Non-boreal Eastern Europe

    Strong atmosphere-hydrology-biosphere feedbacks including human activity affect the rate and sign of changes in the Earth’s system and have impacts on socioeconomic relationships. These processes are related to atmospheric circulation, climate and land use changes. Satellite-based and in situ monitoring systems have greatly increased our ...

  • Social Perspectives on the Sanitation Challenge

    This collection presents a timely collection of social scientific papers dealing with innovative sanitation issues and concepts, perceptions and decision-making support. It comprises a valuable resource for political scientists, environmental engineers and urban planners involved in the study, design and implementation of sanitation projects ...

  • Ocean Processes in Climate Dynamics: Global and Mediterranean Examples

    One of the most crucial but still very poorly understood topics of oceanographic science is the role of ocean processes in contributing to the dynamics of climate and global change. This book presents a series of high level lectures on the major categories of ocean/atmosphere processes. Three of these major issues are the focus of the ...

  • Water Scarcity, Land Degradation and Desertification in the Mediterranean Region

    This book is the outcome of an international workshop promoted and organised by the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and by the Science for Peace and Security Programme of NATO. Its focus is the emerging issue of environment and security aspects in terms of water scarcity, land degradation and desertification in the ...

  • Phytoplankton in Turbid Environments: Rivers and Shallow Lakes

    The ecology of potamoplankton has received less attention than lake plankton. These proceedings produce a synthesis of the composition, community structure and dynamics of lotic phytoplankton, which are intuitively submitted to a strong physical control in the flowing environment, perceived as much more 'disturbed' than a lake, even than a ...
