Turning The Tide: Essays on Dutch ways with water

Turning The Tide: Essays on Dutch ways with water Lowest new price: $28.92
Lowest used price: $103.37
List price: $29.50
Author: Henk L.F. Saeijs

Henk Saeijs, the spiritual father and driving force behind modernization and "ecologization" of water management in The Netherlands in the last decades of the 20th century, in this collection of 17 essays presents his views. Many themes are being dealt with in this bundle, often in a challenging way. Myths and beliefs that many people have on for example salt water as undesirable, reclaiming land, see defenses and others, are thoroughly being debunked. In stead of technology-driven solutions Saeijs advocates the power and flexibility of Mother Nature, because after all "she has over 3 billion years of experience". All too often the downsides of the technical solutions are neglected or underestimated; only much later the (unpaid) bill comes along for untold quantities of dredging, the diminished biological production of estuaries and so on. Fortunately, there are positive trends emerging, especially where scientists and engineers try to use and respect the resilience of ecosystems. Turning the Tide is a stimulating collection of essays for anyone who is interested in water and water management, certainly not only in The Netherlands with its interesting coastal structure and its polders op to 7 meters below sea level, but even more so in a global context.

The Water Wizard: The Extraordinary Properties of Natural Water

The Water Wizard: The Extraordinary Properties of Natural Water Lowest new price: $22.57
Lowest used price: $19.62
List price: $49.00
Author: Viktor Schauberger
Brand: Brand: Gill MacMillan, Limited

According to Schauberger, water is akin to blood in the human body - the most important life-giving and energy-empowering substance on the planet. Yet, with incorrect, ignorant handling, it becomes diseased, affecting human, animal and vegetable life alike, causing physical decay and, in the case of people, their moral, mental and spiritual deterioration as well. Schauberger was a fearless exponent of natural energy and a fascinating polemicist, reveling in doing battle with contemporary orthodox scientists. Sadly, the same extractive and water management policies which brought devastation and widespread pollution in his day have even greater consequences today. Themes addressed in this book include: The natural pulsation of water and how to maintain it How minute differences in temperature affect the natural function of water in the earth, in plants and rivers. How to regulate rivers without damaging their vitality and health The natural conversion of sea-water into fresh water The consequence of sterilization and chlorination of water

Author: G. N. Tiwari

This book is primarily intended to serve as a textbook and reference work for graduate and professional training coursework on solar desalination of water. The book begins with an introduction to the increasing demand for potable water, various types of water pollution and its impacts on human health, and goes on to cover basics of desalination technologies. It covers all aspects of solar-energy based distillation and desalination for producing potable water resources, including radiation and heat transfer concepts, a history of solar distillation systems, and background on solar collectors. The contents include thermal modeling and parametric study of solar distillation. Energy and exergy aspects are analyzed in detail, including energy matrices of solar distillation. A special chapter on exeroeconomics introduces fundamental equations which include the general balance equation, thermodynamic balance equations, and economic balance equations. A chapter on Economic Analysis of Solar Distillation completes the coverage. The book includes solved examples and end-of-chapter exercises in the form of both problems and objective-type questions. The contents of this book are useful to students, researchers, professionals, and policymakers looking for a comprehensive resource on solar desalination.

    Water in Plain Sight: Hope for a Thirsty World

    Water in Plain Sight: Hope for a Thirsty World Lowest new price: $15.03
    Lowest used price: $6.95
    List price: $26.99
    Author: Judith D. Schwartz
    Brand: Schwartz Judith D

    Water scarcity is on everyone's mind. Long taken for granted, water availability has entered the realm of economics, politics, and people's food and lifestyle choices. But as anxiety mounts - even as a swath of California farmland has been left fallow and extremist groups worldwide exploit the desperation of people losing livelihoods to desertification - many are finding new routes to water security with key implications for food access, economic resilience, and climate change.

    Water does not perish, nor require millions of years to form as do fossil fuels. However, water is always on the move. In this timely, important book, Judith D. Schwartz presents a refreshing perspective on water that transcends zero-sum thinking. By allying with the water cycle, we can revive lush, productive landscapes. Like the river in rural Zimbabwe that, thanks to restorative grazing, now flows miles further than in living memory. Or the food forest of oranges, pomegranates, and native fruit-bearing plants in Tucson, grown through harvesting urban wastewater. Or the mini-oasis in West Texas nourished by dew.

    Animated by stories from around the globe, Water In Plain Sight is an inspiring reminder that fixing the future of our drying planet involves understanding what makes natural systems thrive.
