Novel Bioremediation Processes for Treatment of Seleniferous Soils and Sediment

1st Edition

Shrutika Laxmikant Wadgaonkar
October 17, 2018

The aim of this Ph.D. was to develop a technology for the remediation of seleniferous soils/sediments and to explore microbial reduction of selenium oxyanions under different respiration conditions and bioreactor configurations. Seleniferous soil collected from the wheat-grown agricultural land in...

Aqueous Phase Adsorption: Theory, Simulations and Experiments

1st Edition

Jayant K Singh, Nishith Verma
October 09, 2018

This book covers theoretical aspects of adsorption, followed by an introduction to molecular simulations and other numerical techniques that have become extremely useful as an engineering tool in recent times to understand the interplay of different mechanistic steps of adsorption. Further, the...

Engineering Practices for Management of Soil Salinity: Agricultural, Physiological, and Adaptive Approaches

1st Edition

S. K. Gupta, Megh R. Goyal, Anshuman Singh
September 27, 2018

Abiotic stresses are known to adversely impact agricultural productivity on millions of hectares globally, and it is projected that these problems are likely to increase, primarily due to anthropogenic interventions as well as climatic changes. Understanding abiotic stresses—especially salt stress...

Statistical Downscaling for Hydrological and Environmental Applications

1st Edition

Taesam Lee, Vijay P. Singh
September 27, 2018

Global climate change is typically understood and modeled using global climate models (GCMs), but the outputs of these models in terms of hydrological variables are only available on coarse or large spatial and time scales, while finer spatial and temporal resolutions are needed to reliably assess...

One Century of the Discovery of Arsenicosis in Latin America (1914-2014) As2014: Proceedings of the 5th International Congress on Arsenic in the Environment, May 11-16, 2014, Buenos Aires, Argentina

1st Edition

Marta I. Litter, Hugo B. Nicolli, Martin Meichtry, Natalia Quici, Jochen Bundschuh, Prosun Bhattacharya, Ravi Naidu
September 27, 2018

The Congress "Arsenic in the Environment" offers an international, multi- and interdisciplinary discussion platform for research aimed towards a holistic solution to the problem posed by the environmental toxin arsenic, with considerable societal impact. The congress has focused on cutting edge and...

Ganga-Brahmaputra-Meghna Waters: Advances in Development and Management

1st Edition

Mahesh Chandra Chaturvedi
September 18, 2018

Once a prosperous region, the Ganga-Brahmaputra-Meghna (GBM) river basin—inhabited by about a tenth of the world’s population—is currently one of the poorest. Large-scale socioeconomic development is urgently needed to ensure the sustainability of the region, and the management of water resources...

Water & Wastewater Infrastructure: Energy Efficiency and Sustainability

1st Edition

Frank R. Spellman
September 18, 2018

A critical aspect of sustainability associated with water and wastewater systems is to maintain and manage infrastructure in the most efficient and economical manner while complying with environmental regulations and keeping rates at acceptable levels. Given the high cost of fuel, our growing...

Risk Assessment for Water Infrastructure Safety and Security

1st Edition

Anna Doro-on
September 18, 2018

One of the seventeen critical infrastructures vital to the security of the United States, the water supply system remains largely unprotected from the threat of terrorism, including possible revenge by Al Qaeda over the killing of Osama Bin Laden. Recognizing and identifying prospective events of...

Lake Governance

1st Edition

Velma I. Grover, Gail Krantzberg
September 13, 2018

The Lake Governance book will focus on comparative analysis of governance structures by examining policy, legal and institutional structures of current transboundary commissions to develop a common framework for good governance of transboundary lakes. Cooperation among nations sharing natural...

Optimization of the Electron Donor Supply to Sulphate Reducing Bioreactors Treating Inorganic Wastewater

1st Edition

Luis Carlos Reyes-Alvarado
September 12, 2018

The main objective of this research was to optimize the electron donor supply in sulphate reducing bioreactors treating sulphate rich wastewater. Two types of electron donor were tested: lactate and slow release electron donors such as carbohydrate based polymers and lignocellulosic biowastes....
