Man and His Ecosystem 1989: Vols 1-5: World Clean Air Congress Proceedings (English and French Edition)

Man and His Ecosystem 1989: Vols 1-5: World Clean Air Congress Proceedings (English and French Edition) Lowest used price: $123.14

In recent years there has been growing international awareness of the detrimental effects of man's activities on his environment, among which are such problems as air pollution, ``acid rain'', and the ``greenhouse effect''. We cannot yet predict with certainty the potential consequences of these man-induced perturbations of the globe's radiation balance, such as climate changes with possible effects on our crops, ecological disturbances, sea level rise, etc. A prime objective today is to reduce the uncertainties with which we can predict future trends, to fill the gaps in our knowledge of a wide range of subjects from atmospheric chemistry via technology to effects of man and on the ecosystem of which he is a part. Hosted by the Society for Clean Air in The Netherlands, the 8th World Clean Air Congress was sponsored by the International Union of Air Pollution Prevention Associations. This set of five volumes contains 369 papers by authors from all parts of the world. The wide range of subjects covered can be seen from the session headings given below and the timely publication of these Proceedings ensures that the wealth of information provided is particularly up-to-date.

Catastrophic Coastal Storms: Hazard Mitigation and Development Management (Duke Press Policy Studies)

Catastrophic Coastal Storms: Hazard Mitigation and Development Management (Duke Press Policy Studies) Lowest new price: $71.25
Lowest used price: $22.68
List price: $94.95
Author: David R. Godschalk
Brand: Brand: Duke University Press Books

As people cluster on the coast in increasing numbers, coastal populations become more vulnerable to severe damage from catastrophic coastal storms. The authors contented that current public policy has proved unable to cope with the growing problem, and in response they present a comprehensive analysis of coastal storm hazards, standard policy approaches, and promising new means of managing coastal growth.

Catastrophic Coastal Storms offers a solution to the policy problem by proposing a merger of hazard mitigation with development management, basing this on extensive surveys of at-risk coastal locations and case studies of post-hurricane recovery. Starting with the local level of government and proceeding to state and federal levels, the authors propose a strategy for overcoming the formidable obstacles to safeguarding the shoreline population and its structures from hurricanes and other severe storms.

The Growth and Decay of Ice (Studies in Polar Research) Lowest new price: $231.61
Lowest used price: $29.95
List price: $136.99
Author: G. S. H. Lock

Ice exists in water, in air, in earth and in living organisms. The purpose of this book is to describe in mathematical, physical and biological terms, the growth and decay of ice, on a scale ranging from molecular to macroscopic. Consideration of the growth of ice in each of the above contexts provides a clearer understanding of the processes involved and results in a comprehensive overview not available elsewhere. This book will be of particular use to any graduate student, scientist or engineer requiring an introduction and reference for ice-related projects: theoretical or experimental; in the laboratory or the field.
