Systems Ecology An Introduction Howard T. Odum An integrated theoretical and applied approach to systems ecology, using diagrammatic language to explain basic concepts of systems, modeling, and simulation. It presents simple and moderate complexity models as the ones of primary utility in theory and practice; combines energetics and kinetics, rather than viewing them separately; and generalizes concepts of ecosystems and economic systems, among its many vital features. (0 471 65277-6) 1983 Ecogenetics Genetic Variation in Susceptibility to Environmental Agents Edward J. Calabrese The most comprehensive and up-to-date assessment of how genetic factors affect susceptibility to environmental agents. The book provides an objective critical evaluation of current scientific literature on the subject, with particular emphasis on those a gents typically considered pollutants. (0 471 89112-6) 1984 Chemodynamics Environmental Movement of Chemicals in Air, Water and Soil Louis J. Thibodeaux This book describes the nature and processes of the transport of pollutants throughout the environment. It examines equilibrium at environmental interfaces, transport fundamentals, and the chemical exchange rates between air and water, water and the adjoining earthen material, air and soil, as well as intraphase chemical exchange rates. (0 471 04720-1) 1979 Environmental Engineering and Sanitation, 3rd Edition Joseph A. Salvato A totally updated edition of the standard guide to sanitary and environmental engineering principles and their practical applications. It covers virtually every problem encountered in the design, construction, maintenance, and operation of sanitation plants and structures.

A comprehensive, thoroughly modern approach to environmental quality assessment The only textbook to combine engineering transport fundamentals and equilibrium aquatic chemistry, Environmental Modeling brings a uniquely contemporary perspective to the assessment of environmental quality. Addressing key questions about fate, transport, and long-term effects of chemical pollutants in the environment, this inherently practical text gives readers the important tools they need to develop and solve their own mathematical models. Contains detailed examples from a wide range of crucial water quality areas-conventional pollutants in rivers, eutrophication of lakes, and toxic organic chemicals and heavy metals in both surface and groundwaters Examines current global issues, including atmospheric deposition, hazardous wastes, soil pollution, global change, and more Features over 200 high-quality illustrations, plus skill-building problems in every chapter Fresh in approach and broad in scope, Environmental Modeling is must reading for today's graduate and advanced undergraduate students in environmental sciences and engineering-a rich, invaluable, and superlative new resource.

Reflecting the best current thinking and techniques in the field, here is a multi-disciplinary analysis of the dynamics and mechanisms of aquatic systems, using lakes as a point of departure. The contributors, all of whom are recognized world authorities, treat physical, chemical and biological processes such as transport and distribution of chemicals, aquatic surface chemistry, and geobiological cycles of trace elements, which can be applied to all-natural water systems--oceans, rivers and estuaries. Stresses explanation and dynamics rather than documentation.

Das Standard-Nachschlagewerk der Makromolekularen Chemie: vollständig überarbeitet und aktualisiert! Der Elias - ein Markenname, der für Qualität bürgt! Das einzigartige Nachschlagewerk der Makromolekularen Chemie liegt nun in der sechsten Auflage vor, allein das setzt Maßstäbe, die nicht zu übertreffen sind. Um der stürmischen Entwicklung auf dem Gebiet gerecht zu werden, wurde das Konzept völlig geändert und der Umfang stark erweitert: In vier Bänden werden alle Aspekte des Gebiets beleuchtet. Die Qualität der früheren Auflagen wurde selbstverständlich beibehalten: eine nicht zu elementare Darstellung des Stoffes, präzise Definition der Grundlagen, detaillierte Ableitung wichtiger Beziehungen und ein breiter Überblick über das Gesamtgebiet. Band 1 ist der Chemischen Struktur und den Synthesen von Makromolekülen gewidmet. Er bildet den Anfang eines modernen, umfassenden und aktuellen Nachschlagewerks!
