Biophysical chemistry of fractal structures and processes in environmental systems by N Senesi( )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Disorder appears to predominate in natural and environmental systems, e.g. star constellations, clouds, coastlines, trees and snowflakes. In the natural environment, there is a great need to quantitatively describe complex physicochemical systems and processes. By their very nature, environmental systems are perfect candidates for quantitative description using fractal dimensions. Indeed, fractal geometry is a powerful approach for the quantitative description of complex, highly irregular and random systems, the processes that lead to the formation of such disordered systems and the physical behaviour that results from such apparent disorder." "Biophysical Chemistry of Fractal Structures and Processes in Environmental Systems aims to provide the scientific community with a novel and valuable approach based on fractal geometry concepts. A number of important properties and processes are examined in diverse environmental systems. For example, this volume examines how the fractal approach has been applied to better understand the structure and reactivity of flocs, sediments, soils, microorganisms and humic substances. The book will be of great use to scientists and engineers looking for the fundamental knowledge necessary to solve practical environmental problems."--BOOK JACKET
Biophysico-chemical processes of anthropogenic organic compounds in environmental systems by Baoshan Xing( )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In contrast to the classical books which largely focus on separate, individual physicochemical and biological aspects, this book aims to integrate the frontiers of knowledge on the fundamentals and the impact of physicochemical and biological interactions and processes of AOCs in soil, sediment, water and air.≤ The specific objectives of this book are to address: (1) fundamental biophysico-chemical processes of AOCs in the environment, (2) occurrence and distribution of AOCs in air, water, and soil, and their global cycling, (3) the state-of-the-art analytical techniques of AOCs, and (4)

Structure and surface reactions of soil particles( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The IUPAC Series on Analytical and Physical Chemistry of Environmental Systems provides the scientific community with a critical evaluation of the state of the art on physicochemical structures and reactions in environmental systems, as well as on the analytical techniques required to study and monitor these systems. The series is aimed at promoting rigorous analysis and understanding of physicochemical functioning of environmental systems. Soils are a major component of the ecosystem. A fundamental awareness of soil structures and processes at the molecular and microscopic level is therefore essential to understanding and regulating the behaviour of environmental systems and the circulation and impact of anthropogenic compounds. Structure and Surface Reactions of Soil Particles addresses the basics of structure and surface reactions of both soil particles and colloids and describes their characterization and properties. New approaches using fractal analysis of particle dimensions, aggregation and surface reactions, computer modelling of the structure and reactivity of humics and applications of atomic force microscopy are given special treatment. Advanced instrumentation for analysis of soil particles which help to model the processes in the soil are also reviewed. Structure and Surface Reactions of Soil Particles is the definitive guide to the analysis of soils for chemists and biologists working in environmental analysis and soil chemists studying the effect of landfills and working on soil restoration

Assessing the Effects of Soil Humic and Fulvic Acids on Germination and Early Growth of Native and Introduced Grass Varieties( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The six humic acids (HAs) isolated by the USDA St. Paul group in duplicate from the two Wyoming soils, Guernsey North (GN1 and GN2) and Guernsey South (GS1 and GS2), and one Utah soil, Dugway (D1 and D2), object of this research, were characterized for their moisture and ash contents, elemental (C, H, N, S, O) and acidic functional group composition, and by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and fluorescence spectroscopy in the emission, excitation and synchronous scan modes. For the remainder of the contract period (20 months) research plans are the following: (a) Experiments on the germination and early growth of the two introduced varieties Vavilov and SERP-select Siberian wheatgrass as affected by the three HAs, D-HA, GS-HA, and GN-HA. (b) Chemical and spectroscopic characterization of HAs isolated from greenhouse soils. (c) Experiments on the germination and early growth of the four grass varieties, alone or in combination (based on the growth differences found in the initial studies conducted at CRREL), as affected by the greenhouse soil HAs. (d) Follow-up experiments with HA concentrations optimal to promote the growth of the four grass varieties. (e) Correlation of the germination and seedling growth data with chemical and physico-chemical parameters of the HAs examined, in order to find out the HA parameters influencing germination and growth of the plant varieties examined
Advances in soil science by James Birney Harsh( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of soils today has taken on increased importance because a rapidly expanding population is placing demands on the soil never before experienced. This has led to an increase in land degradation. Land degradation is one of the most severe problems facing mankind. Volume 11 of Advances in Soil Science was devoted entirely to this critical area of soil science. From the beginning of agriculture until about 1950, increased food production came almost entirely from expanding the cropland base. Since 1950, however, the yield per unit of land area for major crops has increased dramatically. Much of the increase in yields was because of increased inputs of energy. Between 1950 and 1985, the farm tractor fleet quadrupled, world irrigated area tripled, and use of fertilizer increased ninefold. Between 1950 and 1985, the total energy used in world agriculture increased 6. 9 times. Until recently, sustainability was seldom, if ever, mentioned in agricultural literature. Now, it is one of the most widely used terms. The high costs ofirriga­ tion development, escalating energy costs during the 1970s, public concern over potential negative impacts of fertilizer and pesticides on water supplies, soil ero­ sion, soil compaction and salinity problems, and other concerns have caused many people to question whether many of the present agriculture systems can be sustained. As a result, soil science is beginning to focus more on sustaining the resource base
