  • Developments in Environmental Modellingby S.E. Jorgensen; M.J. Gromiec

    Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95

    The use of models to assess water quality is becoming increasingly important worldwide. In order to be able to develop a good model, it is necessary to have a good quantitative and ecological description of physical, chemical and biological processes in ecosystems. Such descriptions may be called ``submodels''. This book presents the most important,... more...

  • Mercury Pollutionby Sharon L. Zuber; Michael C. Newman

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 99.95

    How does mercury get out of the ground and into our food? Is tuna safe to eat? What was the Minamata Disaster? Mercury Pollution: A Transdisciplinary Treatment addresses these questions and more.

  • Heavy Metals in the Environmentby Howard T. Odum

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 172.95

    Much of the convenience of modern life resides in sheet metal, the cowling shield of most machines and appliances. However, the load that this takes off human shoulders has to be carried elsewhere, and the Earth has borne the burden. Many of us woke up to the environmental cost when over a century of industrialization finally surpassed the capacity... more...

  • Bioremediation of Recalcitrant Compoundsby Jeffrey Talley

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 220.00

    This authoritative text addresses the latest in bioremediation technologies for three difficult-to-treat contaminant groups: chlorinated solvents, PCBs, and PAHs - one of the most complex and expensive areas of applied remediation engineering. Bioremediation of Recalcitrant Compounds assesses innovative R&D projects developed for each contaminant... more...

  • Environmental Sampling and Analysis for Metalsby Maria Csuros; Csaba Csuros

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 172.95

    Determination of metals is a major part of the work of environmental testing laboratories. EPA and DEP methodology releases provide information only for selected areas of metals sampling and analysis, and their language makes them unsuitable for teaching and training purposes. Environmental Sampling and Analysis for Metals is a comprehensive and easy-to-read... more...

  • Evapotranspiration Covers for Landfills and Waste Sitesby Victor L. Hauser

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 159.95

    New, natural, self-renewing, and low-cost, evapotranspiration (ET) covers for landfills provide a solution to landfill waste that is clean, green, and economical. Evapotranspiration Covers for Landfills and Waste Sites examines the concept theory and the practical proof, then explains the technology, design, and application. It delineates the essential... more...

  • Bioremediation of Aquatic and Terrestrial Ecosystemsby Milton Fingerman

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 132.95

    Bioremediation, the use of microorganisms to degrade, sequester, or remove environmental contaminants, is an urgent need of our planet for protection and restoration from toxic contaminants. This book not only provides cutting edge information about bioremediation of aquatic and terrestrial habitats, but also highlights the gaps in our knowledge of... more...

  • Environmental Chemistry in Society, Second Editionby James M. Beard

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 85.95
