September 17, 2015

The late Professor Reds Wolman in his Foreword to the award-winning second edition said, "This is not your ordinary textbook. Environmental Hydrology is indeed a textbook, but five elements often found separately combine here in one text to make it different. It is eclectic, practical, in places a h...

Hydrodynamics of Estuaries: Volume I Estuarine Physics

B. Kjerfve
December 13, 2017

These books are divided into two volumes. The first focuses on estuarine physics and physical processes and interpretations. I have, for the most parts, intentionally downplayed engineering applications to estuaries. It is my bias that a deeper understanding is accomplished with a physical approach...

Pollution in Tropical Aquatic Systems

Des W. Connell
December 13, 2017

We have identified a need to draw together knowledge of physiochemical and biological aspects of pollution in tropical aquatic systems. This book results from this and we hope will assist in providing management strategies to protect these systems from pollution effects. In organising the book we...

Water-Soluble Synthetic Polymers: Volume I: Properties and Behavior

Philip Molyneux
December 08, 2017

Although several monographs and reviews have appeared on individual polymers of this type, and their applications and other technical aspects have also been discussed, this is apparently the first book to deal with the physical chemistry of water-soluble synthetic polymers as a group. This...

Pollutant Transfer and Transport in The Sea: Volume I

Gunnar Kullenberg
December 08, 2017

This book covers those subject areas considered essential for the transfer and transport of pollutants in the marine environment. This publication will stimulate discussions and interdisciplinary research relevent to pollution problems as well as serve as an educational reference book....

Man and the Marine Environment

Ragotzkie
November 29, 2017

Marine recreation represents one of the most important uses of our marine and coastal environments.This is a natural result of three things; population density in coastal areas, increasing interest in outdoor recreation, and the special lure of the sea.What the poet may think of as the lure of the...

Hydrodynamics of Estuaries: Volume II Estuarine Case Studies

B. Kjerfve
November 29, 2017

These books are divided into two volumes. The first focuses on estuarine physics and physical processes and interpretations. I have, for the most parts, intentionally downplayed engineering applications to estuaries. It is my bias that a deeper understanding is accomplished with a physical approach...

Sea Ice Biota

Horner
November 29, 2017

Investigators from a number of countries have been studying the ice community and experimental information is now available from a number of geographic areas. This includes ecological data as well as community and species specific physiological information. The literature on ice biota is scattered,...

Semiarid Soil and Water Conservation

Finkel
November 29, 2017

In this volume, the erosion and conservation measures discussed are, for the most part, those under unirrigated agriculture. The use of irrigation could cause significant changes in the growing seasons, and in the agricultural calendar, especially in the warmer climates where temperature is not a...

Heavy Metals in the Marine Environment

Robert W. Furness
November 29, 2017

The aim of this volume is to draw together state-of-the-art reviews of knowledge onlevels of heavy metals in marine environments (particularly in marine animals), the dynamicprocesses in these systems, toxic effects, and threats presented by heavy metals in foods ofmarine origin.All heavy metals,...

Salt Water Intrusion

Samuel F. Atkinson
November 29, 2017

This book provides a summary of the status and potential for salt water intrusion into ground water in the contiguous united states. While the focus is on resultant limitation in the agricultural usage of ground water, the book is not limited to this singular limitation in resource usage....

Health Maintenance of Cultured Fishes: Principal Microbial Diseases

John A. Plumb
November 29, 2017

The text concentrates on the infectious viral and bacterial diseases that are most prevalent in aquaculture. Although much information has been derived from North American studies, important diseaase problems from other parts of the world are included. Also, where applicable, the influence of the...

The Development of an Aquatic Habitat Classification System for Lakes

W.D.N. Busch
November 29, 2017

In the context of freshwater fisheries changing their strategies from the regulation of harvest and the enhancement of populations, to the creation and protection of habitats and the management of ecosystems, moves toward establishing an aquatic habitat classification system. Eight papers, from the...
