Process Modelling and Simulation in Chemical, Biochemical and Environmental Engineering

Ashok Kumar Verma

October 17, 2014

The use of simulation plays a vital part in developing an integrated approach to process design. By helping save time and money before the actual trial of a concept, this practice can assist with troubleshooting, design, control, revamping, and more. Process Modelling and Simulation in Chemical,...

Information Needs for Water Management

Jos G. Timmerman

July 22, 2014

This book provides the necessary elements to determine exactly what information should be collected to make the collected information relevant for policy makers. It highlights the dissatisfaction of information users about the information they get and the reasons for this dissatisfaction. It also...

Global Urban Monitoring and Assessment through Earth Observation

Global Urban Monitoring and Assessment through Earth Observation

Qihao Weng

May 23, 2014

Cities and towns are the original producers of many of the global environmental problems related to waste disposal, and air and water pollution. There is a rapidly growing need for technologies that will enable monitoring of the world’s natural resources and urban assets, and managing exposure to...

Scale in Spatial Information and Analysis

Scale in Spatial Information and Analysis

Jingxiong Zhang, Peter Atkinson, Michael F. Goodchild

April 15, 2014

Now ubiquitous in modern life, spatial data present great opportunities to transform many of the processes on which we base our everyday lives. However, not only do these data depend on the scale of measurement, but also handling these data (e.g., to make suitable maps) requires that we account for...
