Review of EPA homeland security efforts : safe buildings program research implementaion plan by Committee on Safe Buildings Program( )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2,004 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The report examines the Environmental Protection Agency s three-year plan for a comprehensive response to a chemical or biological attack on a civilian or public sector facility. The report states that EPA has correctly identified the essential major research areas (detection, containment, decontamination, and disposal) but calls for an initial focus on decontamination and disposal efforts and a longer term research program."--Publisher's description
Nonnative oysters in the Chesapeake Bay by Committee on Nonnative Oysters in the Chesapeake Bay Staff National Research Council (U.S.)( )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonnative Oysters in the Chesapeake Bay discusses the proposed plan to offset the dramatic decline in the bay's native oysters by introducing disease-resistant reproductive Suminoe oysters from Asia. It suggests this move should be delayed until more is known about the environmental risks, even though carefully regulated cultivation of sterile Asian oysters in contained areas could help the local industry and researchers. It is also noted that even though these oysters eat the excess algae caused by pollution, it could take decades before there are enough of them to improve water quality

Groundwater fluxes across interfaces by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Estimates of groundwater recharge and discharge rates are needed at many different scales for many different purposes. These include such tasks as evaluating landslide risks, managing groundwater resources, locating nuclear waste repositories, and estimating global budgets of water and greenhouse gasses. Groundwater Fluxes Across Interfaces focuses on scientific challenges in (1) the spatial and temporal variability of recharge and discharge, (2) how information at one scale can be used at another, and (3) the effects of groundwater on climate and vice versa
Science and decisions : advancing risk assessment by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1,722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Risk assessment has become a dominant public policy tool for making choices, based on limited resources, to protect public health and the environment. It has been instrumental to the mission of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as well as other federal agencies in evaluating public health concerns, informing regulatory and technological decisions, prioritizing research needs and funding, and in developing approaches for cost-benefit analysis. However, risk assessment is at a crossroads. Despite advances in the field, risk assessment faces a number of significant challenges including lengthy delays in making complex decisions; lack of data leading to significant uncertainty in risk assessments; and many chemicals in the marketplace that have not been evaluated and emerging agents requiring assessment. Science and Decisions makes practical scientific and technical recommendations to address these challenges. This book is a complement to the widely used 1983 National Academies book, Risk Assessment in the Federal Government (also known as the Red Book). The earlier book established a framework for the concepts and conduct of risk assessment that has been adopted by numerous expert committees, regulatory agencies, and public health institutions. The new book embeds these concepts within a broader framework for risk-based decision-making. Together, these are essential references for those working in the regulatory and public health fields
Review of the Environmental Protection Agency's draft IRIS assessment of formaldehyde by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Formaldehyde is ubiquitous in indoor and outdoor air, and everyone is exposed to formaldehyde at some concentration daily. Formaldehyde is used to produce a wide array of products, particularly building materials; it is emitted from many sources, including power plants, cars, gas and wood stoves, and cigarettes; it is a natural product in some foods; and it is naturally present in the human body as a metabolic intermediate. Much research has been conducted on the health effects of exposure to formaldehyde, including effects on the upper airway, where formaldehyde is deposited when inhaled, and effects on tissues distant from the site of initial contact. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released noncancer and cancer assessments of formaldehyde for its Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) in 1990 and 1991, respectively. The agency began reassessing formaldehyde in 1998 and released a draft IRIS assessment in June 2010. Given the complexity of the issues and the knowledge that the assessment will be used as the basis of regulatory decisions, EPA asked the National Research Council (NRC) to conduct an independent scientific review of the draft IRIS assessment. In this report, the Committee to Review EPA's Draft IRIS Assessment of Formaldehyde first addresses some general issues associated with the draft IRIS assessment. The committee next focuses on questions concerning specific aspects of the draft assessment, including derivation of the reference concentrations and the cancer unit risk estimates for formaldehyde. The committee closes with recommendations for improving the IRIS assessment of formaldehyde and provides some general comments on the IRIS development process

Review of the Environmental Protection Agency's draft IRIS assessment of tetrachloroethylene by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tetrachloroethylene is a volatile, chlorinated organic hydrocarbon that is widely used as a solvent in the dry-cleaning and textile-processing industries and as an agent for degreasing metal parts. It is an environmental contaminant that has been detected in the air, groundwater, surface waters, and soil. In June 2008, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released its draft Toxicological Review of Tetrachloroethylene (Perchloroethylene) (CAS No. 127-18-4) in Support of Summary Information on the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS). The draft IRIS assessment provides quantitative estimates of cancer and noncancer effects of exposure to tetrachloreothylene, which will be used to establish airquality and water-quality standards to protect public health and to set cleanup standards for hazardous waste sites. At the request of EPA, the National Research Council conducted an independent scientific review of the draft IRIS assessment of tetrachloroethylene from toxicologic, epidemiologic, and human clinical perspectives. The resulting book evaluates the adequacy of the EPA assessment, the data and methods used for deriving the noncancer values for inhalation and oral exposures and the oral and inhalation cancer unit risks posed by tetrachloroethylene; evaluates whether the key studies underlying the draft IRIS assessment are of requisite quality, reliability, and relevance to support the derivation of the reference values and cancer risks; evaluates whether the uncertainties in EPA's risk assessment were adequately described and, where possible, quantified; and identifies research that could reduce the uncertainty in the current understanding of human health effects associated with tetrachloroethylene exposure."--Publisher's description

Soil gas sensing for detection and mapping of volatile organics : project summary by Devitt Dale A.; Evans Roy B.; Jury William A.; Starks Thomas H( )

7 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 1,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sensing of soil gas for detection and mapping of volatile organics is a relatively new technique that deserves greater attention. Soil organic vapor monitoring has been shown to be a cost effective means of delineating the size and movement of organic contaminants in the subsurface. It has also been shown to provide immediate information of the lateral extent of soil and ground-water contamination and to minimize and more accurately predict the number and location of conventional monitoring wells that must be drilled. Literature on the technique for mapping soil and ground-water contamination has been increasing, but comprehensive reviews of the method have been limited. This document is meant to be a primer on the current state-of-the-art of soil gas sensing as it relates to the detection of subsurface organic contaminants. It is hoped that such a document will better assist all those individuals who are faced with assessing the extent of contamination of our soil and ground water. The document begins by outlining many of the parameters (water solubility, microbial influence, ground-water flow, etc.) that must be considered by the scientist before utilizing soil gas sensors in a field monitoring program. Next, the complex soil, air, water, and hydrocarbon system is addressed with an overview of the important processes involved in the transport and fate of organic contaminants in the soil. Additional sections address the correct sampling and analytical methodologies for monitoring volatile organics in the subsurface, covering such sampling methods as headspace, ground probe, flux chamber and passive sampling techniques. Analytical methods include organic vapor analyzers (OVAs) and gas chromatographs with a variety of detectors. A statistical treatment of soil organic vapor measurements is also included to ensure that soil organic vapor monitoring programs address the requirement for data precision. The statistical section also gives greater insight into understanding the spatial patterns of soil organic vapor measurements. Finally, case studies are included to give the unfamiliar reader examples of the design, procedures, and results of soil organic vapor monitoring programs that have been successful in delineating the size and lateral extent of subsurface organic contaminants
