Presents a timely exploration of research topics in environmental chemistry of lakes and reservoirs. Includes coverage of methodological advances in studies of lake geochemistry; cycling and distribution of major elements in aquatic systems; behavior of trace metals, with an emphasis on processes that control their solubility and transport, and behavior and fate of organic contaminants. Valuable reading for chemists, environmental engineers,... more...
Freshwater Marshes was first published in 1994. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. Prairie potholes, wetland edges of lakes and rivers, and other freshwater marshes play a vital role in maintaining a clean and plentiful water supply for wildlife and human... more...
"In order to accept the enormous responsibility that comes of being in the world, we must first conceive, in spite of all the obstacles, the state of actually being the world." It is for this reason that John R. Campbell came to the Klamath marshes, a wetland in southern Oregon formed by three ancient, shallow lakes, a vast emptiness that is paradoxically home to an amazing diversity of life, of untold thousands of birds both migratory and resident,... more...
Continuing concern about water supply and quality, ecosystem sustainability and restoration demands that the modern approach to the management of lakes and reservoirs should be based on a sound understanding of the application of the scientific and ecological principles that underlie freshwater processes. The Lakes Handbook provides an up-to-date overview of the application of ecologically sound approaches, methods and tools using experience gained... more...
Progress in vitreo-retinal surgery is mercurial. Since this series is dedicated to new developments the reader is presented with a motley list of topics. The advancements described here may represent generally accepted progress in the field: New instruments, Macular hole surgery, Tumor biopsy. The text is well-structured text and the book bridges the gap between primary literature and daily practice.
This is the second volume in the NATO ASI series dealing with the topic of hydrogen in solids. The first (V. B76, Metal Hydrides) appeared five years ago and focussed primarily on crystalline phases of hydrided metallic systems. In the intervening period, the amorphous solid state has become an area of intense research activity, encompassing both metallic and non-metallic, e.g. semiconducting, systems. At the same time the problem of storage of... more...
Eutrophication continues to be a major global challenge to water quality scientists. The global demand on water resources due to population increases, economic development, and emerging energy development schemes has created new environmental challenges to global sustainability. Eutrophication, causes, consequences, and control provides a current account of many important aspects of the processes of natural and accelerated eutrophication in major... more...
This is the second edition of a book that reviews current and future computer trends in fisheries science applications. The first edition was published 10 years ago. Individuals have been quick to realize the potential of computers in fisheries and scientists continue to take advantage of the rapidly advancing tools and technology. This book provides a valuable sampling of contemporary applications and in some cases compares recent... more...
Over the last decade, interest in seafood products has grown dramatically. The increasing level of consumer interest has resulted in a proliferation of research initiatives to understand the unique properties of seafoods. Microbiology is only one of the scientific disciplines involved in seafood research, but it is fundamental to understanding the quality and safety issues that are important to the seafood industry and consumers. The purpose of this... more...
