Sea Ice Biota

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,...

Effects Conservation Tillage On Ground Water Quality: Nitrates and Pesticides

Terry J Logan
November 29, 2017

Nowadays the environmental sustainability of the cropping systems is increasingly requested by the consumers. Conventional tillage practices, totally turning over the soil between the vineyard rows, may cause erosion due to rain as well as structure destruction of the soil in the long term....

Semiarid Soil and Water Conservation

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....

Mechanisms Of Pesticide Movement Into Ground Water

R. Honeycutt
November 29, 2017

This book is devoted to exploring the mechanism of pesticide movement into groundwater. It describes how pesticides enter ground water/drinking water systems and how regulatory decisions based on these mechanisms will affect the use of pesticides. Experimental results, models, and industry and...

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...

Environmental Impact of Water Resource Projects

Larry W. Canter
November 29, 2017

This book discusses the environmental impact of water resources projects. Information from literature related to the implementation of studies on water resources projects such as dams and reservoirs, channelization, and dredging are summarized. Other topics covered are methodologies, transport, and...

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...

Pollutant Transfer and Transport in the Sea: Volume II

Gunnar Kullenberg
November 29, 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....

Thermal Use of Shallow Groundwater

Fritz Stauffer, Peter Bayer, Philipp Blum, Nelson Molina Giraldo, Wolfgang Kinzelbach
November 22, 2017

The thermal use of the shallow subsurface is increasingly being promoted and implemented as one of many promising measures for saving energy. A series of questions arises concerning the design and management of underground and groundwater heat extraction systems, such as the sharing of the thermal...

Peatland Biogeochemistry and Watershed Hydrology at the Marcell Experimental Forest

Randall Kolka, Stephen Sebestyen, Elon S. Verry, Kenneth Brooks
November 22, 2017

The Marcell Experimental Forest (MEF) in Minnesota serves as a living laboratory and provides scientists with a fundamental understanding of peatland hydrology, acid rain impacts, nutrient and carbon cycling, trace gas emissions, and controls on mercury transport in boreal watersheds. Its important...
