Acid rain in the Adirondacks : an environmental history( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1970s, acid rain was viewed as a simple problem that was limited in scope and characterized by 'dead, ' fishless lakes. Scientists now have broader insights into the processes by which acid rain sets off a cascade of adverse effects in ecosystems as its components move through air, soil, vegetation, and surface waters. Written and designed to appeal to both scientists and lay readers, this book is a landmark example of scientific communication that provides a comprehensive scientific history of the phenomenon, from its discovery to the full understanding of the scope of its effects and the ultimate responses that have mitigated some of the damage to the region's lakes and forests."--Jacket
Radon, radium, and other radioactivity in ground water : hydrogeologic impact and application to indoor airborne contamination : proceedings of the NWWA Conference, April 7-9, 1987, Somerset, New Jersey by National Water Well Association( Book )

5 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new book focuses on sampling and analysis, radon and radium in water supply wells, predictive models, geologic and hydrogeologic controls that influence radon occurrence, monitoring radon and other radioactivity from geologic sources and mining impacts on occurrence of radioactivity in ground water. Also discussed are occurrence, testing, treatment, and reduction of radon from groundwater. Because the most severe health hazard from indoor radioactivity results from inhalation of short-lived radioactive decay products of radon, the EPA scheduled a major conference early in 1987 on Radon, Radium, and Other Radioactivity in Ground Water-Hydrogeologic Impact and Application to Indoor Airborne Contamination. The result is this book."--Publisher description (LoC)

Clean water action plan : restoring and protecting America's waters( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a blueprint for restoring & protecting the nation's precious water resources. This Action Plan builds on the Clinton Administration's accomplishments over the past five years & proposes aggressive new actions to strengthen the program. The key element is a new cooperative approach to watershed protection in which state, tribal, federal & local governments, & the public first identify the watersheds and the most critical water quality problems & then work together to focus resources & implement effective strategies to solve those problems. The Action Plan also includes new initiatives to reduce public health threats, improve the stewardship of natural resources, strenghten polluted runoff controls, & make water quality information more accessible to public

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

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 162 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
Review of the Environmental Protection Agency's draft IRIS assessment of tetrachloroethylene by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 87 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
