  • This book is not comprehensive: covering the complete spectrum of topics in environmental physics would require a monumental work and most readers would have little appreciation for the more specialized top-ics. Many books or review papers on specific topics exist and they some-times include exercises, but they are often too detailed for the purpose of a general course in environmental physics.

  • The contents of this book are based loosely on presentations at a special symposium, “Application of Interface Science to Environmental Pollution Control,” held as part of the ACS National Meeting in Chicago, August 26–30, 2001. This symposium offered an opportunity for researchers from a range of disciplines to discuss the role of interface science in environmental remediation. The development of an archival book based on this meeting is a timely contribution to a burgeoning area of research that is now attracting the attention of a diverse research community.

  • The term environment broadly indicates the surroundings of an individual organism or a community of organisms, ranging on up to the entire biosphere, the zone of Earth that is able to sustain life. By surroundings is meant all the nonliving and living materials that play any role in an organism's existence, from soil and air to what the organism feeds on and the organisms that may feed on it. Any other factors acting on the organism, such as heat and light and gravitation, make up its environment as well. In the case of human beings, cultural factors may also be included in the term....

  • My interest in environmental pollution control microbiology began at MIT in 1948 when I realized that very little was known about this vital area of sanitary engineering technology. I became a serious student of environmental pollution control microbiology in 1950 when I began research on the microbiology and the biochemistry of floe-forming bacteria in activated sludge. I must admit that environmental pollution control microbiology has been my area of technical specialization since 1950. It has been a most interesting experience that I have never regretted.

  • 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.

  • Ecological issues and environmental problems have become exceedingly complex. Today, it is hubris to suppose that any single discipline can provide all the solutions for protecting and restoring ecological integrity. We have entered an age where professional humility is the only operational means for approaching environmental understanding and prediction.

  • Approximately 50% of all nursing home residents, and 42% of residents living in assisted living programs have some form of dementia (Alzheimer Association 2007). It is strongly suggested that there be special training programs set up to inform the first responders as to specific needs, as well as specific actions, that should and should not be used with these citizens. The University of New Mexico has published a guide (Center for Development and Disability 2007) that addresses many of these issues in an easily used, bullet-point format to and provide specific guidance.

  • This book is on trade in Climate Smart Goods and Other Specialized Products of Ecuador. The interest in the subject of Trade in Climate Smart Goods was fuelled by Ecuador’s positive trade balance with the rest of the Andean Community and MERCOSUR region in 2010. This may be a reflection of Ecuador’s maturity in dealing with environmental issues since the early 1980s.The study is also able to identify some specialized industries and identify markets for the two digit and 6 digit industries for Ecuador using RCA and Export Specialization indices...

  • Third, the effects of trade are not considered in the theory. According to the Hecksher-Ohlin trade theory, under free trade countries would tend to specialize on economic activities that the country has abundant resource on. Thus, developed countries would concentrate on labor and service production while developing countries would put emphasis on human capital and manufactured capital-intensive activities. As such, this might explain for the further degradation of environment of the latter, while improvement for the former.

  • Pollution prevention. IPPC presumes the use of preventative techniques before any consideration of end-of-pipe control techniques. Many pollution prevention techniques can be applied to LVOC processes and Section 5.2 describes them in terms of source reduction (preventing waste arisings by modifications to products, input materials, equipment and procedures), recycling and waste minimisation initiatives. Air pollutant control.

  • Diagnostic nuclear medicine began more than 50 years ago and has evolved into a major medical specialty. Its practitioners use low activity levels of radioactive materials in a safe way to gain information about health and disease. Small amounts of radioactive materials, known as radiopharmaceuticals, are intro- duced into the body by injection, swallowing, or inhalation. Different radiopharmaceuticals are used to study different parts of the body. These agents emit photons that can be detected externally by special cameras.

  • Organic carbon concentrations can be reduced by enhanced coagulation, granular activated carbon or membrane filtration, but this fact can also lead to increased in brominated THMs (Black et al, 1996.). A combination of coagulation, ozonation, and biofiltration can effectively reduce trihalomethane and haloacetic acid formation potential (Chaiket et al, 2002.). Natural organic matter (NOM), the main precursor of DBPs, can also be removed by media filters coated with iron oxide

  • I am enormously grateful to all of authors who have contributed to this volume on gas– liquid foam. One of the great pleasures of working with such accomplished scientists and engineers from industry and academia is that everybody has known the level at which to pitch their contributions. Special thanks are due to Laurie Schramm who, along with co-authors, has contributed two chapters on foams in enhanced oil recovery and flotation of oil sands, and to Thomas Martin who endured initial confusion upon my part to produce a first class chapter on firefighting foams....
