The Sentinel Method and Its Application to Environmental Pollution Problems Book Description :

Many environmental problems contain incomplete data in the initial or boundary conditions. How do we solve problems for which some of the initial and/or boundary conditions are unknown? Using a new technique, the sentinel method, this book answers these questions and others as they pertain to inverse problems in environmental pollution, such as pollution of underground and surface waters, thermal pollution, and air pollution.

Mathematical Analysis for Modeling Book Description :

Mathematical Analysis for Modeling is intended for those who want to understand the substance of mathematics, rather than just having familiarity with its techniques. It provides a thorough understanding of how mathematics is developed for and applies to solving scientific and engineering problems. The authors stress the construction of mathematical descriptions of scientific and engineering situations, rather than rote memorizations of proofs and formulas. Emphasis is placed on algorithms as solutions to problems and on insight rather than formal derivations.

In Situ Evaluation of Biological Hazards of Environmental Pollutants Book Description :

The study of the relationship between environmental pollution and human health is in its infancy. The number of substances and mixtures that have been identified in uncontrolled hazardous waste sites or that have been in advertently released into the environment is large and data on how thes~ substances are modified as they interact with one another as they migrate through soil, air, and water are limited. There are also limits on our un derstanding of how these substances may be ingested, inhaled, or absorbed by people. The complexity of possible interactions between biological, chemical, and physical components in a given environment makes it virtually impossible to evaluate the potential for adverse biological effects ade quately in the laboratory. Other, more comprehensive methods which provide realistic and interpretable results must be used. Many scientists believe that humans represent the ultimate sentinel species of a toxic exposure re sUlting from environmental pollution, however such exposures may also se verely impact environmental health. There exists a wide variety of organ isms in the natural environment that could be used to provide an early warning for potential human health effects as well as to indicate adverse ecological effects. The issue of effective utilization of sentinel species for environment al monitoring is a rapidly developing area of research which has grown in importance during the last decade.

In Vitro Methods in Aquatic Ecotoxicology Book Description :

For the first time, here is a book that focuses on in vitro approaches to the study of the toxicology of polluting agents (including heavy metals, radionuclides, micro-organics, estrogenic compounds, and complex mixtures) in the aquatic environment. The importance of in vitro methods is that they allow standardised techniques to be developed and validated for substance and species specific experiments in a controlled way. Also, they allow mechanistic studies without the problems of individual variation between animals and environmental stress.

Animals as Sentinels of Environmental Health Hazards Book Description :

Studying animals in the environment may be a realistic and highly beneficial approach to identifying unknown chemical contaminants before they cause human harm. Animals as Sentinels of Environmental Health Hazards presents an overview of animal-monitoring programs, including detailed case studies of how animal health problems--such as the effects of DDT on wild bird populations--have led researchers to the sources of human health hazards. The authors examine the components and characteristics required for an effective animal-monitoring program, and they evaluate numerous existing programs, including in situ research, where an animal is placed in a natural setting for monitoring purposes.

Environmental Challenges Book Description :

In the summer of 1999, an international group of experts convened in Jerusalem, Israel, in order to define the major environmental challenges facing humanity at the dawn of the new millennium and - where possible - propose ways of addressing them. Almost 50 selected articles are collected in the present book, which constitutes a striking interdisciplinary combination of state-of-the-art science with the latest views on environmental law, education, and international cooperation. Whilst a major fraction of the book is devoted to water-related issues (water quality monitoring, water and wastewater treatment, water-based international cooperation, and more), other sections deal with timely topics relating to air pollution, biodiversity, conservation, and education. The book is intended for environmental scientists, professionals, and students of all disciplines.
