Simulation and assessment of chemical processes in a multiphase environment by I. E Barnes( )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book reviews the current state of knowledge on the chemical and physical processes occurring in the environmental media (i) the atmosphere, (ii) the aqueous phase and (iii) soil and identifies the strengths and weaknesses of the chemical mechanisms (both explicit and condensed) currently available to simulate the multimedia environmental chemistry of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and particulate matter in these media. Contributions examine how well this knowledge has been incorporated into different types of CT models and appraise the current status and significant issues in the development and usage of the models. Model simulations of some real world chemical perturbations to the Earth system are presented which appraise the performance of the models in relation to "real world" observations. Serious caveats in our understanding of chemical processes and their simulation in the various compartments of the Earth system are highlighted and areas are identified that need urgent improvement, in particular with respect to environmental security
Surgical endodontics : colour manual by I. E Barnes( Book )

33 editions published between 1984 and 1992 in 4 languages and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is derived from a series of articles written for dental practitioners and first published in Dental Update. The articles were written as a consequence of running a weekly clinic, concerned largely with the correction of referred endodontic problems. In most cases the 'problems' did not exist and were treated simply by redoing the root filling or by undertaking a straightforward apicectomy. Regrettably, in many other cases, the problem would not have existed had the previously undertaken, and potentially simple, apicectomy been carried out competently. There is no good reason why apical surgery should not be undertaken by the general dental practitioner as part of the patient's overall treatment. After all, the problem will usually have arisen either during, or as a result of, routine dental treatment. In addition, the tooth may require to be restored, either at the time of surgery or fairly soon thereafter. Regrettably, inexperience in the handling of soft tissues, and concern about the risk of damage to associated structures, often deters the dentist from attempting what is, if sensibly approached, an uncomplicated minor dento-alveolar operation. Chapters 1-8 introduce the reader to the basic techniques of apicectomy. Chapters 9, 12, 16 and 17 will, it is hoped, help the interested dentist to develop a competence to treat more complex cases, once he or she has become proficient in the basic skills
Disposal of dangerous chemicals in urban areas and mega cities : role of oxides and acids of nitrogen in atmospheric chemistry by I. E Barnes( )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oxides and acids of nitrogen play an important role in regulating atmospheric radical levels, in particular, that of the OH radical the main initiator of the degradation of chemicals in the atmosphere. A comprehensive overview on the methods used to measure nitrogen oxides and acids in the troposphere is given and difficulties and artefacts associated with the use of the techniques for measurements in urban and mega city environments is illustrated. State-of-the-art methods for the measurement of OH and HO2 radicals are reviewed and recently recognised difficulties, in particular with the measurement of HO2 radicals, are highlighted. Other contributions to the book cover our present understanding of the gas, aqueous and particulate/aerosol phase atmospheric degradation chemistry of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) under NOx conditions typical of rural, urban and mega city environments. Examples of measurements of NOx and VOCs in the atmospheres of these environments are given, in particular for the megacities Cairo and Beijing, in conjunction with modelling studies which attempt to simulate the field observations using state-of-the art knowledge on the chemistry of the VOCs and radical levels.
Global atmospheric change and its impact on regional air quality by I. E Barnes( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is growing evidence that the changing global atmosphere is impacting urban and regional air quality and that emissions from great urban conurbations are significantly influencing global change. This book presents the topics needed to understand possible changes in regional and global atmospheric air quality. Air quality measurements reveal the influence of anthropogenic emissions on the background atmosphere, especially at regional and local scales, superimposed on a background of biogenic emissions. The book also deals with possible changes in atmospheric chemistry in remote areas due to the impact of halogens, halogen oxides, and organic sulphur compounds. Important areas that need to be known in detail for the modelling of these influences are ozone formation, radical mechanisms in the gas phase, oxidation processes in the aqueous phase, and the formation of aerosols. All these are discussed on the basis of both laboratory studies and field measurements. The various observational data, emission data and chemical mechanisms are needed as inputs for modelling the regional impact of anthropogenic emissions and global change. The book presents a great amount of material from the Russian Federation and other East European countries that is not available in Western journals

Contribution de la combustion du bois à la qualité de l'air et étude de la réactivité atmosphérique des méthoxyphénols en chambre de simulation by Amélie Lauraguais( )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

One of the objectives of the Grenelle Environment Forum is to increase the quantity of the renewable energy up to 23% in the final energy consumption in France in 2020, to reduce fossil fuel consumption and thus restrict the level of greenhouse gas emissions. The wood-energy represents an alternative to fossil fuel, but it also a source of atmospheric pollutants. It is necessary to determine its potential contribution to the degradation of air quality (indoor and outdoor). During this PhD, my works focused on the study, in simulation chambers, of the atmospheric degradation of compounds emitted by wood combustion : the methoxyphenols. In the Laboratory of Physical Chemistry of the Atmosphere (LPCA) of the Universite of Littoral-Côte d'Opale (ULCO), tests were carried out to be sure that the walls of the chamber (in PMMA PolyMethacrylate of Methyl) are not a source of artifacts during its irradiation and chemical reactions with ozone, hydroxyl radicals and nitrate radicals. The rate coefficient of the reaction of syringol with OH radicals was determinate at (294 ± 2) K and is 9,65 x 10-¹¹ cm³ molecule-¹ s-¹. Then the atmospheric lifetime was calculated : it is about 2 hours during the day. During the oxidation of guaiacol and syringol, we observed the formation of Secondary Organic Aerosol (SOA) with yields ranging from of 0.003 to 0.87 and from 0.10 to 0.36, respectively. Oxidation products study in the gas- and particle- phases for the reaction of guaiacol with OH radicals showed principally the presence of nitroguaiacols in the gas phase, which may be potential wood combustion tracers due to their low atmospheric reactivity. The kinetic studied of NO₃ radicals with guaiacol, 3-methoxyphenol and syringol were realized at (294 ± 3) K. They were leaded to rate coefficients in the range of (1,15 - 21,7) x 10-¹¹ cm³ molecule-¹ s-¹ and so associated atmospheric lifetimes about 2 minutes, overnight. At the Bergische Universität Wuppertal (Germany), the reaction of a series of methoxylated aromatic compounds (anisole, 2-methylanisole, guaiacol, 3-methoxyphenol, 4-methoxyphenol, 2-methoxy-4-methylphenol, syringol and 2,3-dimethoxyphenol) with hydroxyl radicals were studied leading to the following rate coefficients for methoxybenzenes and metoxyphenols, (2,12 -4,64) x 10-¹¹ cm³ molecule-¹ s-¹ and (5,75 -8,10) x 10-¹¹ cm³ molecule-¹ s-¹, respectively. The estimated atmospheric lifetimes are in the range from 4 to 8 hours and from 2 to 3 hours, for methoxybenzenes and methoxyphenols, respectively. For these compounds, we also determined, the rate coefficients for their reaction with chlorineatoms, which are between (1,07 - 1,20) x 10-¹¹ cm³ molecule-¹ s-¹, for methoxybenzenes, and (2,71 - 4,73) x 10-¹¹ cm³ molecule-¹ s-¹, for methoxyphenols. Thus, their respective atmospheric lifetimes are 46-52 hours and 12-21 hours. This study of tropospheric oxidation of methoxyphenols is to our knowledge the first one. It allows underlining a high reactivity of these compounds during the day and overnight and also their contribution to SOA formation. The wood-energy is thus both a source of primary and secondary aerosols. Its use therefore impacts human health and the environment

Global Atmospheric Change and its Impact on Regional Air Quality( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The NATO ARW in Irkutsk was an excellent occasion for the coming together of Eastern and Western scientists who are involved in tropospheric science; the workshop has greatly contributed to the scientific and social understanding among the participants from the many different countries. Many new personal contacts were made which will help to strengthen future collaborations. In particular, the Lake Baikal area and the Limnological Institute offer splendid opportunities for environmental research which, in part, is already on going. For most participants it was the first time to see the impressive nature of the Lake Baikal region. Hopefully, there will be a chance for a follow-up event in Siberia where researchers from the East and West can again meet and engage in fruitful scientific dialogue. The book contains extended abstracts of the lectures and the poster presentations presented at the NATO ARW "Global Atmospheric Change and its Impact on Regional Air Quality" Irkutsk, Lake Baikal, Russian Federation, August 21-27, 2001. The ARW was composed of 22 oral presentations by key lecturers and 6 additional shorter oral presentations from participants. In a special poster session the 36 poster contributions were presented and discussed. Unfortunately not all contributors submitted extended abstracts, however, to compensate two contributions have been added from 2 participants who were originally invited but were unable to attend
