  • This paper discusses the effects of bank competition on bank loan and deposit rate levels as well as on their responses to changes in market rates and, hence, on the monetary policy transmission mechanism. Given the prominent role of the banking sector in the euro area’s financial system, it is of significant importance for the ECB to monitor the degree of competitive behaviour in the euro area banking market. A more competitive banking market is expected to drive down bank loan rates, adding to the welfare of households and enterprises.

  • Human activities have a large and important impact on the environment. Naturally occurring elements or compounds are often concentrated and redistributed in the environment through industrial processes, power production, and consumer activity. For example, lead, which is found in naturally occurring mineral deposits, has become a major pollutant through its use in batteries, paints, and gasoline additives.

  • Hydrocarbons provide our core energy resource. Information on their origin, properties and phase behavior is interesting from the point of view of physical chemistry. At the same time this information is of great value to the oil and gas industry. The book "Hydrocarbon" is comprised of 9 chapters, covering different topics: from origin of hydrocarbons to the method for hydrocarbon exploration. Distribution of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in soil and their influence to environment are also discussed....

  • Databases and database systems are an essential component of life in modern society: most of us encounter several activities every day that involve some interaction with a database. For example, if we go to the bank to deposit or withdraw funds, if we make a hotel or airline reservation, if we access a computerized library catalog to search for a bibliographic item, or if we purchase something online—such as a book, toy, or computer— chances are that our activities will involve someone or some computer program accessing a database.

  • When considering supply side factors, we study characteristics of the financial sector that would influence the speed of adoption of mutual funds. We examine the effect of bank concentration, restrictions placed on banks to enter the securities business, the number of distribution channels available for funds, the presence of an explicit deposit insurance system for banks, and the time and cost to set up a new fund. We find that nations that restrict banks from entering the securities business have smaller equity and bond fund sectors. In addition, countries with a...

  • As in a past decades, the world today continues to be at crossroads in terms of energy. Shortages and rising prices of fuel, accompanied by environmental damage are leading to a poor quality of life. Fossil fuel consumption is increasing, and our search for oil has led to ever deeper reserves, with its higher production costs. Rapid depletion of oil and gas are real issues affecting both current and future generations.

  • Ennore Creek becomes the pollution point in Bay of Bengal which influences the marine resources and productivity of the region. This coastal belt in the neighboring areas of the city is viewed as dumping sites for industrial effluents and disposing domestic waste (Arunagiri et al., 1998). The natural wealth of the creek is now being eroded to mere sewage channel (Jayaprakash, 2003). The Ennore Thermal Power Plant uses the river waters as coolant and lets out the warm water, in the Ennore Creek.

  • Although phosphate rock and potash are used as raw materials for a wide range of applications, the most important use by far is the manufacture of mineral fertilizers. The primary source of these minerals is geological ore deposits formed through past sedimentary or igneous activities. In the case of potash, concentrated brines are also a significant source. This chapter provides a brief overview of the major activities involved in the mining, handling and benefi- ciation of phosphate rock and potash ore....

  • Ammonia concentration should be measured using passive sampling techniques – either the ‘Alpha’ samplers used by the Ammonia Monitoring Scheme or commercially available diffusion tubes (e.g. those supplied and analysed by Gradko Ltd.). Wet deposition should be collected using a standard precipitation collector (Sykes & Lane, 1996) and analysed for NO2 - , NH4 + , SO4 - and pH.

  • This volume, edited by John Gunn, Rob Steedman, and Dick Ryder, pulls together an incredibly broad mix of people and topics under a single cover. As such, it is a worthy addition to the new series from CRC Press — Integrative Studies in Water Management and Land Development — that was initiated in 2002 with publication of my own edited volume, Handbook of Water Sensitive Planning and Design . Books like these are rare, but they shouldn’t be.

  • Another portion of the airborne mercury is transported long distances before it is deposited at some point downwind. If this takes place within several hundred kilometres, it is considered as regional deposition. High levels of mercury in eastern North America, for instance, are due in part to the downwind deposition of mercury emissions from a large number of major industrial sources in the American Midwest and Ontario, mostly coal-fired electric power plants.

  • By far the most important for the present publication, in terms of the quantity mined and potential impact on the environment, are phosphate and potash. The production of phosphorous and potassium min- eral fertilizers relies essentially on the mining of mineral concentrations, in the form of ore deposits from the earth's crust. Nitrogen mineral fertilizers, on the other hand, are almost entirely based on ammonia manufactured from the abundant source of atmos- pheric nitrogen, water and energy.

  • Beneficiation (or concentration) processes are gener- ally used to upgrade the phosphate content by removing contaminants and barren material prior to further processing. A few ores are of sufficiently high quality to require no further concentration. The natu- rally occurring impurities contained in phosphate rock ore depend heavily on the type of deposit (sedi- mentary or igneous), associated minerals, and the extent of weathering. Major impurities can include organic matter, clay and other fines, siliceous material, carbonates, and iron bearing minerals.

  • The model describes the behaviour of consumers, which are heterogeneous in terms of age, income and ¯nancial assets. They maximize the utility from consumption sub- ject to the life-cycle budget constraint. Their savings are remunerated at the deposit interest rate and the cost of borrowing is given by the lending rate. When young, con- sumers work and receive wages that depend on an idiosyncratic, stochastic component and a deterministic life-cycle pro¯le of productivity. When old, they are on a manda- tory retirement and receive pensions.
