Environmental aspects of converting CW facilities to peaceful purposes by Raymond R McGuire( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

NATO and the International Science and Technology Center in Moscow jointly sponsored the March 1999 workshop in Speiz, Switzerland. One of primary findings was that essentially no information is available about chronic effects of low doses of chemical agents, and more research needs to be conducted to determine whether data from other toxic and often similar materials can be of help. Among the topics of the 21 papers published are mathematical modeling in the problems of chemical and ecological safety, oxidative decontamination, general approaches to analyzing arsenic-containing warfare agents, and thermal plasma as a novel technique for water decontamination.

Environmental Aspects of Converting CW Facilities to Peaceful Purposes by Raymond R McGuire( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is hardly any information available on the chronic effects of low doses of chemical warfare agents, but there is a growing body of data on the chronic effects of exposure to other toxic materials (PAHs, PABs and the like). One of the four main themes of the book is thus the chronic effects of extended exposure to low doses of toxic material. There is some important new work on the effects of such materials on cellular material and genes. The book's second main theme is the decontamination of CW facilities, centring on two topics: bioremediation and concrete. Both before and after decontamination, one needs to be able to analyze residual toxics at trace level - possibly even at parts per trillion or parts per quadrillion levels. Current techniques for use at these levels do not permit the identification of compounds. Neither LIDAR nor solid phase microextraction, used for air monitoring, offer this sort of sensitivity. Toxic waste has to be disposed of, and plasma arc technology and chemical oxidation are discussed as techniques to reduce toxicity to acceptable levels - if such can be specified. The eternal question in such matters, of course, is "How clean is clean enough?", and the discussion of this theme outlines two approaches: a regulatory approach and one based on quantitative risk analysis
Basic photographic materials and processes by Leslie D Stroebel( )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new edition of this classic text has been updated to include a new chapter on Digital Imaging. This important addition covers, in depth, everything photographers need to know in order to be completely up-to-date on the digital aspects of photography. This book is heavily illustrated with helpful photographs and line drawings, and also includes a special color insert. Since Basic Photographic Materials and Processes deals with the capturing, recording, and reproduction of visual images, the principles discussed have direct applications to graphic arts printing, graphic design, computer graphics and electronic imaging
