Chemical and biological processes in fluid flows : a dynamical systems approach
This book introduces the theoretical approaches for describing mixing and transport in fluid flows. It reviews the basic concepts of dynamical phenomena arising from the nonlinear interactions in chemical and biological systems. The coverage includes a comprehensive overview of recent results on the effect of mixing on spatial structure and the dynamics of chemically and biologically active components in fluid flows, in particular oceanic plankton dynamics.
Chemicals in the atmosphere : solubility, sources, and reactivity
This volume will be of interest to chemists and environmental scientists as well as geochemists and others involved in atmospheric microtesting. Researchers associated with aerosol and air quality studies, as well as pollution issues, will also find it of interest. The sections on Henry's law constants will be of particular benefit to chemical engineers.
Chemistry versus physics : chemical reactions near critical points
This book sums up the results of 222 published articles, both theoretical and experimental, which cover chemical reactions at high pressures.
Provides coverage of environmental issues. Each article is written in a nontechnical style and provides current status, analysis, and suggested solutions whenever possible.
Environmental Toxicology is a comprehensive introductory textbook dealing with all aspects of the subject. It is primarily a text for students in environmental toxicology, environmental chemistry, ecotoxicology, applied ecology, environmental management, and risk assessment. It will also be valuable for specialists in ecology, environmental science, and chemistry.
