Balances Scientific and Economic Points of View to Thoroughly Address Management Issues
Responding to the need for clarification and benchmarks, Environmental Life Cycle Costing provides the fundamental basis on which to establish a definitive methodology. Clearly defining environmental LCC, this book balances scientific and economic points of view and thoroughly addresses the management perspective.
How are pollutants transformed after their release into the environment? How are organisms exposed, and how do physiological alterations impact population dynamics and community structure? What direct or indirect impacts occur? As early as the 50s and 60s people living near industrial plants began to recognize undesirable changes in their environment - and to ask these very questions. The discipline of environmental toxicology addresses these questions.
Ebook The economics of Environmental Management in Vietnam is compiled with the content: Overview of economic research on environmental issues in Vietnam; the on site costs of soil erosion and benefi ts of soil conservation in the mountainous regions of northern Vietnam; the on site costs of soil erosion and choice of land use systems by upland farmers in central vietnam; environmental consequences of and pollution control options for pond “tra” fish production in the mekong delta a case study in thotnot district, Cantho city; incentives for wastewater management in industrial estates...
Consumer concerns on food safety and society awareness of chemical contaminants
in the environment have increased in the past few years. As a consequence, more
restrictions in the use of chemical products have been imposed at national and
Pesticides are widely used for the control of weeds, diseases, and pests of
cultivated plants all over the world, mainly since after Second World War, with
the discovery of some organic compounds with good insecticide or herbicide
activity. At present, around 2.
The detection of pharmaceutical residues remained elusive until instruments such as liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry became commonplace in environmental laboratories. The documentation of the occurrence of pharmaceutical residues and endocrine disrupting chemicals in water resources has raused questions about their long-term effects in the ecosystem and their potential effects on human health.
A compilation of the most important aerosol chemical processes involved in known scientific and technological disciplines, Aerosol Chemical Processes in the Environment serves as a handbook for aerosol chemistry. Aerosol science is interdisciplinary, interfacing with many environmental, biological and technological research fields. Aerosols and aerosol research play an important role in both basic and applied scientific and technological fields. Interdisciplinary cooperation is useful and necessary.
Economic and environmental consequences of natural and man-made disasters have grown exponentially during the past few decades. Whether from hurricanes, chemical spills, terrorist incidents, or other catastrophes, the negative impacts can often be felt on a global scale. Natural Hazards Analysis: Reducing the Impacts of Disasters evaluates critical preparedness issues that emergency managers must face before, during, and after disasters of any kind.
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 determine environmentally-effective and cost-effective remedial actions, the transport and fate of these sediments and associated contaminants must be understood and quantified.
The products of science and technology influence the lives of
all citizens, including young adults. New means of communication
and transportation, new ways of doing work and
pursuing recreation, new foods and new medicines arrive
almost daily. Science also engenders new ways of looking at
the world and at other citizens. Likewise, science can raise
concerns about moral and ethical values.
Dealing with all such changes requires some resiliency.
A fundamental element of sustainable development is environmental sustainability.
Hence, this series was created in 2007 to cover current and emerging issues
in order to promote debate and broaden the understanding of environmental
challenges as integral to achieving equitable and sustained economic growth. The
series will draw on analysis and practical experience from across the World Bank
and from client countries.

This workshop is the third of a series of workshops sponsored by the Round-
table on Environmental Health Sciences, Research, and Medicine since the
Roundtable began meeting in 1998. When choosing workshops and activities,
the Roundtable looks for areas of mutual concerns and also areas that need
further research to develop a strong environmental science background. The
Roundtable delegated the planning of this workshop to a planning group. The
group was headed by Donald R. Mattison and Samuel Wilson, who were in-
volved in the editing of this summary....
There is now a body of evidence suggesting that the occurrence and
course of schizophrenia are affected by a variety of environmental
factors. The Environment of Schizophrenia draws upon our
knowledge of these factors in order to design innovations that will
decrease its incidence and severity, while enhancing the quality of
life for sufferers and their relatives.
Examining environmental forces operating at the individual,
domestic and broad societal levels, Richard Warner proposes feasible
interventions such as...
The specific problems associated with concrete and concreting in hot
environments have been recognised for some decades. This recognition has
manifested itself over the years at a few symposia and in hundreds of papers
where relevant research results and field observations were presented and
discussed. In other publications the practical conclusions from these available
data and experiences have been summarised in the form of guidelines for hot
Why do some contaminants remain in soils indefinitely? How much of a threat do they pose to human health or the environment? The need for effective and economic site decontamination arises daily. Geoenvironmental Engineering: Contaminated Soils, Pollutant Fate, and Mitigation discusses why soils remain contaminated, focusing on the development of the factors, properties, characteristics, and parameters of soils and individual contaminants.
The rapid economic growth in Vietnam has resulted in an increasing demand for
electricity. This in turn translates to a higher rate of coal resource extraction and
consequent rise in pollution of water and land resources.
This study estimated the environmental costs associated with the electricity
demand requirements of the coal electricity sector, as a component of the long-run
marginal opportunity cost (LR-MOC) of electricity production.
I have literally handled hundreds of customer calls which ranged through a wide gamut of difficulties and applications challenges. A great majority of these calls could have been avoided had the end user read just the first section of Mr. Broadwell's book'its appeal will span the gamut between the researcher and designing engineer to the actual day to day operator.
Integrating ecotoxicological concepts across a range of hierarchical levels, Ecotoxicology: A Comprehensive Treatmentfocuses on the paradigms and fundamental themes of ecotoxicology while providing the detail and practical application of concepts often found in more specialized books.
