Ion Exchange Pollution Control: Volume II

1st Edition

C. Calmon
April 16, 2018

The aim of these volumes is not to cover all phases of ion-exchange theory, which may be found in general texts, nor to cover every application in the literature, or to show an engineer ways on how to become an expert in the field so he could �do it all by himself�. The main purpose of these books...

Indoor Air and Human Health

1st Edition

Richard B. Gammage
April 16, 2018

The data have been presented in forms that can best permit evaluations of health implications. Alternatively, the data help us identify gaps in knowledge that need to be filled before such evaluations can be made. The pollutant classes are examined from viewpoints such as measurement and source...
