  • The environmental industry is changing, along with the way it manages data. Many projects are making a transition from investigation through remediation to ongoing monitoring. Data management is evolving from individual custom systems for each project to standardized, centralized databases, and many organizations are starting to realize the cost savings of this approach.

  • The first question that I ask an environmental science student who comes seeking my advice on a data analysis problem is Have you looked at your data? Very often, after some beating around the bush, the student answers, Not really. The student goes on to explain that he or she loaded the data into an analysis package provided by an advisor, or downloaded off the web, and it didn’t work. The student tells me, Something is wrong with my data! I then ask my second question: Have you ever used the analysis package with a dataset that did work? After some further beating around the bush,...

  • This book is intended to introduce environmental scientists and managers to the statistical methods that will be useful for them in their work. A secondary aim was to produce a text suitable for a course in statistics for graduate students in the environmental science area. I wrote the book because it seemed to me that these groups should really learn about statistical methods in a special way. It is true that their needs are similar in many respects to those working in other areas.

  • Much new material has been added to this second edition. Besides a totally new chapter on radionuclides, the text has been reorganized and updated with separate chapters on metals, light nonaqueous phase liquids (LNAPLs), dense nonaqueous phase liquids (DNAPLs), and biodegradation. Also, some end-of-chapter exercises have been added. The dictionary of inorganic pollutants has been enlarged and some important organic pollutants added.

  • When one is confronted with a new problem that involves the collection and analysis of data, two crucial questions are: How will using statistics help solve this problem? And, Which techniques should be used? This book is intended to help environmental engineers answer these questions in order to better understand and design systems for environmental protection. The book is not about the environmental systems, except incidentally. It is about how to extract information from data and how informative data are generated in the first place.

  • The last quarter-century has seen increasing awareness of the interactions between human societies and the natural environment in which they thrive and upon which they depend. This awareness has been heightened by concerns about resource scarcity, environmental degradation, and global environmental issues. The combination of increased awareness of the environment and recognition of the primitive state of much of the nation’s environmental data has led to a widespread desire to supplement U.S. national economic accounts to include natural resources and environmental assets.

  • In January 1976, the Transportation Energy Conservation (TEC) Division of the Energy Research and Development Administration contracted with Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to prepare a Transportation Energy Conservation Data Book to be used by TEC staff in their evaluation of current and proposed conservation strategies. The major purposes of the Data Book were to draw together, under one cover, transportation data from diverse sources, to resolve data conflicts and inconsistencies, and to produce a comprehensive document.

  • Data fusion is a research area that is growing rapidly due to the fact that it provides means for combining pieces of information coming from different sources/sensors, resulting in ameliorated overall system performance (improved decision making, increased detection capabilities, diminished number of false alarms, improved reliability in various situations at hand) with respect to separate sensors/sources.

  • 3 Identification of Biased Environmental Data Coincidence, error, studied ignorance, or junk science? 3.1 INTRODUCTION An expert opinion is worth no more than the factual data upon which it is based. The critical review of environmental data is therefore essential for judging the reliability of the factual information. Environmental data relied upon to form an opinion should be of a sufficient known quality to withstand the scientific and legal challenges relative to the purpose of the data collection.

  • This textbook provides study materials for the participants of the course named Multivariate Analysis of Ecological Data that we teach at our university for the third year. Material provided here should serve both for the introductory and the advanced versions of the course. We admit that some parts of the text would profit from further polishing, they are quite rough but we hope in further improvement of this text.

  • Our starting point is the question, “Who invented the environment?” Chapter 1 describes how humans’ awareness of their impacts on the environment developed and when and why the concept of the environment was invented. Chapter 2 provides a first definition of environmental literacy and introduces the value that transdisciplinarity can bring to how humans address environmental issues.

  • Colloid and surface chemistry occupy a paradoxical position among the topics of physical chemistry. These are areas which have traditionally been considered part of physical chemistry and are currently enjoying more widespread application than ever due to their relevance to environmental and biological problems. At the same time, however, colloid and surface chemistry have virtually disappeared from physical chemistry courses. These topics are largely absent from the contemporary general chemistry course as well.
