Environmental determinants of human health by Jozef M Pacyna( )

16 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and German and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Polluted air and contaminated food and water are major causes of human health deterioration, but public health policy has long struggled to effectively address these concerns. This timely book{u2014}written for a wide audience of policy makers, researchers, and general readers{u2014}synthesizes what we already know about environmental hazards, identifies the gaps in our knowledge, and provides a roadmap for reducing human exposure to environmental pollution. With contributions from leading experts, Environmental Determinants of Human Health examines numerous pollutants, both inorganic and organic, in the context of their human health impacts. Individual chapters explore exposure pathways, macroeconomic impacts of human health deterioration, technological and non-technological methods for reducing exposures, monetary and non-monetary benefits from exposure reduction, and risk communication and awareness, including citizen participation approaches. This volume is a crucial text for policy makers requiring scientific justification for the development of new environmental regulations, scientists researching public health and environmental contamination, and members of the public interested in human health issues
Control and fate of atmospheric trace metals by Jozef M Pacyna( Book )

18 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The increasing production of industrial goods, heat, and energy, as well as traffic, has led to the release of considerable amounts of toxic trace metals to the atmosphere. The result is elevated concentrations of toxic metals in local populations and eco­ systems. Recently the problem of atmospheric long-range transport of trace metals has also been recognized. Significant amounts of these pollutants are disposed and deposited both on regional and global scales. In the atmosphere they may influence the chemical reactions. Of particular interest is their catalytic effect on the oxidation prosesses taking place in water droplets or on the surface of wet particles (e. g. the oxidation of sulphur dioxide to sulphate), however, the main environmental impact starts when the atmospheric trace metals are deposited on ground and vegetation and subsequently brought into the water circulation. During the later years significant progress has been made in the development of equipment to reduce and control the atmospheric emissions of toxic trace metals. This particularly applies to electrostatic precipitators and wet scrubbers for the collection of fine particles. The main objective of the workshop was to survey present knowledge concerning the sources, atmospheric fluxes, sinks and chemical impact of the atmospheric trace metals, and to review the developments of emission control equipment and the perspectives to reduce the potential risks from toxic metals. During the first two days of the meeting, 15 invited review papers were presented

Socioeconomic aspects of fluxes of chemicals into the marine environment : scientific report of the workshop on socioeconomic aspects of fluxes of chemicals into the marine environment, Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU), Kjeller, Norway, 8-10 March, 1999 by European Commission( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The main goal of the Workshop was to discuss the means of transferring knowledge from the Eloise and LOICZ projects on the impact of socioeconomic drives and pressures on the coastal zone into policy-making procedures. The monograph includes a set of invited papers on socioeconomic and environmental aspects of fluxes of chemicals to the marine environment and the consequences of these fluxes"--Page 4 of cover

Socio-economic costs of continuing the status-quo of Mercury Pollution : Final Draft August 14, 2008( )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mercury is considered a global pollutant and it has been concluded that a significant portion of humans and wildlife throughout the world are exposed to methyl mercury at levels of concern. The Governing Council of UNEP has concluded that long-term international action is required. Most of the measures needed to reduce emissions will lead to costs to society. However, mercury pollution also results in costs to society including for example damage costs from negative impacts on human health and the environment, loss of income from reduced commercial fisheries, administrative costs for scientific research and development, control and risk communication. The aim of this report is to present an estimate of the socio-economic costs of continued mercury contamination of the environment as an input to the global considerations on what international long-term action should be taken. The study contains an analysis of the damage costs of continuing mercury pollution without any further measures until 2020. The analysis has mainly focussed on IQ losses due to the exposure to methyl mercury via ingestion of contaminated fish. Other human health, social and environmental damages are also discussed as are costs of controlling mercury emissions. Furthermore, societal benefits of reducing mercury emissions are presented for two emission reduction scenarios
