  • Airborne Measurements for Environmental Researchby Manfred Wendisch; Jean-Louis Brenguier

    Wiley 2013; US$ 195.00

    This first comprehensive review of airborne measurement principles covers all atmospheric components and surface parameters. It describes the common techniques to characterize aerosol particles and cloud/precipitation elements, while also explaining radiation quantities and pertinent hyperspectral and active remote sensing measurement techniques along... more...

  • Chemical Modeling for Air Resourcesby Jinyou Liang

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 99.95

    Chemical Modeling for Air Resources describes fundamental topics in chemical modeling and its scientific and regulatory applications in air pollution problems, such as ozone hole, acid rain, climate change, particulate matter, and other air toxins. A number of corroborative analysis methods are described to help extract information from model data.... more...

  • Air Pollution XXIby J. W. S. LONGHURST; C. A. BREBBIA

    WIT Press 2013; US$ 276.00

    Containing papers presented at the twenty-first in a successful series of conferences on the modeling, monitoring and management of air pollution, the book Air Pollution XXI covers what has become a widespread and growing challenge to the international community. Governments face a need to balance concern over its known impacts on local and global... more...

  • Causes and Environmental Implications of Increased UV-B Radiationby R. M. Harrison; R. E. Hester; David J. Kieber

    Royal Society of Chemistry 2000; US$ 56.00

    Since the realisation that the ozone layer protecting the earth is suffering massive depletion, atmospheric science has been increasingly in the spotlight. It is recognised that we need to increase our knowledge and understanding of the likely impact that increases in UV-B radiation will have on life on earth.Charting research that encompasses the... more...

  • Noise and Vibration Controlby M. L. Munjal

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 111.00

    Vibration and Noise are two interrelated terms in the field of mechanical engineering. Vibration is caused by unbalanced inertial forces and moments whereas noise is the result of such vibrations. Noisy machines have always been a matter of concern. Lesser vibration ensures manufacturing to closer tolerances, lesser wear and tear, and longer fatigue... more...

  • Urban Smellscapesby Victoria Henshaw

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 53.95

    We see the city, we hear the city, but above all: we smell the city. Scent has unique qualities: ubiquity, persistence, and an unparalleled connection to memory, yet it has gone overlooked in discussions of sensory design. What scents shape the city? How does scent contribute to placemaking? How do we design smell environments in the city? Urban... more...

  • Air Dispersion Modelingby Alex De Visscher

    Wiley 2013; US$ 129.00

    A single reference to all aspects of contemporary air dispersion modeling The practice of air dispersion modeling has changed dramatically in recent years, in large part due to new EPA regulations. Current with the EPA's 40 CFR Part 51, this book serves as a complete reference to both the science and contemporary practice of air dispersion modeling.... more...

  • Atmospheric Dispersion Modellingby Rod Barratt

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 163.95

    To comply with legal and other standards, businesses and regulators are increasingly required to make decisions based on risk assessments of the potential effects of their activities on the environment. Atmospheric dispersion modelling is a cost-effective method, allowing various scenarios to be explored before expensive investment takes place. This... more...

  • Oxy-Fuel Combustion for Power Generation and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Captureby L Zheng

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 255.00

    Oxy-fuel combustion is currently considered to be one of the major technologies for carbon dioxide (CO2) capture in power plants. The advantages of using oxygen (O2) instead of air for combustion include a CO2-enriched flue gas that is ready for sequestration following purification and low NOx emissions. This simple and elegant technology has attracted... more...

  • Developments and Innovation in Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Capture and Storage Technologyby M. Mercedes Maroto-Valer

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 290.00

    Carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage (CCS) is the one advanced technology that conventional power generation cannot do without. CCS technology reduces the carbon footprint of power plants by capturing, and storing the CO2 emissions from burning fossil-fuels and biomass. This volume provides a comprehensive reference on the state of the art research,... more...
