By R.S.E.W. Leuven, A.M.J. Ragas, A.J.M. Smits, G.van der Velde

This publication demonstrates an built-in viewpoint of tendencies and demanding situations in sustainable river technology and administration, as provided via specialists within the fields that shape its foundations - ecology, financial system and sociology. Their contributions combine present wisdom of the constitution, functioning and administration of ‘living rivers’. additionally integrated are info and reports about the rivers Allier, Meuse, Rhine, Sava and Tagliamento in Europe and the Illinois River within the united states.

Environmental Communication. Second Edition: Skills and Principles for Natural Resource Managers, Scientists, and Engineers.

Environmental execs can not easily put up study in technical journals. Informing the general public is now a severe a part of the task. Environmental verbal exchange demonstrates, step-by-step, how it’s performed, and is a necessary consultant for speaking advanced info to teams now not accustomed to medical fabric.

Environmental Archaeology: Principles and Practice

Archaeologists this day want a wide variety of medical methods to be able to delineate and interpret the ecology in their websites. yet borrowing recommendations from different disciplines calls for a severe figuring out, and the tools needs to be acceptable to specific units of knowledge. This ebook is an authoritative and crucial advisor to tools, starting from recommendations for measuring time with isotopes and magnetism to the sciences of weather reconstruction, geomorphology, sedimentology, soil technological know-how, paleobotany and faunal paleoecology.

The Integration of Process Design and Control

Normally, method layout and keep an eye on procedure layout are played sequentially. it's only lately displayed simultaneous method of the layout and keep watch over ends up in major fiscal advantages and stronger dynamic functionality in the course of plant operation. large study in concerns comparable to 'interactions of layout and control', 'analysis and layout of plant large regulate systems', 'integrated equipment for layout and regulate' has led to notable advances and critical new applied sciences that experience enriched the range of tools to be had for the layout engineer in her endeavour to layout and function new procedures.

Assessing and Measuring Environmental Impact and Sustainability

Assessing and Measuring Environmental influence and Sustainability solutions the query “what are the on hand methodologies to evaluate the environmental sustainability of a product, method or technique? ” a number of famous authors percentage their services so one can supply a huge standpoint of this factor from a chemical and environmental engineering point of view.
