  • Air Pollution XIVby J.W.S. Longhurst; C. A. Brebbia

    WIT Press 2006; US$ 658.00

    Pollution is widespread throughout the world, and elimination of the risks to human health is of the utmost importance. Air Pollution XIV examines the development of experimental as well as computational techniques to achieve a better understanding of air pollution problems and seek their solutions.This volume contains papers accepted for the Fourteenth... more...

  • Air Pollution XVby C. A. Brebbia

    WIT Press 2007; US$ 448.00

    Air pollution represents one of the most challenging issues that humankind is facing. With the economic growth of emerging countries leading to an increase in the demand for energy, the prevention of air deterioration by means of controlling atmospheric emission has become an urgent task. The mitigation and strategies for traditional, but persistent... more...

  • Gas Generation and Migration in Radioactive Waste Disposalby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2001; US$ 75.00

    In underground repositories for radioactive waste, significant quantities of gases may be generated as a result of several processes. The potential impact of gas generation, accumulation and migration on the performances of the various barriers and, ultimately, on the long-term safety of a repository, should therefore be assessed in the development... more...

  • Geological Disposal of Radioactive Wasteby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 51.00

    The concept of removing long-lived radioactive wastes from the human environment by disposal in deep geological repositories was developed several decades ago. In the intervening years, research efforts world-wide have increased our knowledge and understanding of how underground disposal systems will function over very long periods of time. Significant... more...

  • Porewater Extraction from Argillaceous Rocks for Geochemical Characterisationby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 102.00

    The definition of the chemical and isotopic composition of the groundwater present in argillaceous formations, which are considered as potential host rocks for radioactive waste disposal, is crucial for establishing their barrier properties. Therefore, a critical review of the relevant literature on the current methods applied to extract water and... more...

  • Features, Events and Processes (FEPs) for Geologic Disposal of Radioactive Wasteby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 42.00

    Safety assessments of disposal sites for radioactive waste involve analyses of potential releases of radionuclides from the disposed waste and subsequent transport to the human environment. An important stage of assessment is the identification and documentation of all the features, events and processes (FEPs) that may be relevant to long-term safety.... more...

  • Nuclear Regulation Investing in Trustby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2001; US$ 100.00

    Good governance and efficiency in decision making by governmental authorities are increasingly dependent upon mutual trust and confidence between those authorities and the public. This workshop provided an opportunity to exchange information and views on how national nuclear regulatory organisations can improve their interface with the public. more...

  • CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion 2000by OECD Publishing; International Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 150.00

    This annual publication provides data on CO2 emissions from fuel combustion for over 140 countries broken down by fuel and by sector. Emissions were calculated using IEA energy databases and the default methods and emission factors from the Revised 1996 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories. more...

  • Ancillary Benefits and Costs of Greenhouse Gas Mitigationby OECD Publishing

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 123.00

    Policies to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases also have impacts on other policy goals, especially health. In some cases, these ancillary effects may be more significant than the direct greenhouse gas reduction impacts. While these relationships are generally recognised, analysis of climate policies does not systematically include them in policy... more...
