Rejection of Emerging Organic Contaminants by Nanofiltration and Reverse Osmosis Membranes Effects of Fouling, Modelling and Water Reuse Victor Augusto Yangali Quintanilla This book examines the presence of micropollutants (medicines, hormones, pesticides) in surface water and the lack of success in removal by conventional water treatment options, and then explores nanofiltration and reverse osmosis methods as better options. The author reviews quantification of removals by means of multivariate data analysis techniques, providing a better understanding of the separation of micropollutants by membranes. He discusses increases in water reuse practices and the important role water membrane treatment will play in the removal of micropollutants and the importance of understanding the characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages of nanofiltration and reverse osmosis.

Water Pollution Water, Agriculture and the Environment in Spain can we square the circle? Edited by

Lucia De Stefano and M. Ramon Llamas Complutense University, Madrid, Spain

This book explores whether Spain’s water problems are due to bad governance rather than physical water scarcity. It examines the growing need for maintaining Spain’s natural capital and the human component of water governance—people’s needs, wishes, (vested) interests, and aspirations— which often determine the result of decisions and, sometimes, lead water management to a deadlock. This book takes a step forward in showing a more complex, and also closer to reality, picture of water governance in Spain. Catalog no.

Water Pollution Impact of Climate Change on Water and Health

Multiscale Hydrologic Remote Sensing

Edited by

Perspectives and Applications

Velma I. Grover

Edited by

Since the hydrological cycle is so intricately linked to the climate system, any change in climate impacts the water cycle in terms of change in precipitation patterns, melting of snow and ice, increased evaporation, increased atmospheric water vapor, and changes in soil moisture and run off. Consequently, climate change could result in floods in some areas and droughts in others resulting in varying availability, and the quality of water affects the quality of life, food security, and health security.

Hydrogeology NEW!

Groundwater around the World A Geographic Synopsis Jean Margat and Jac van der Gun This book presents a unique and up-to-date summary of what is known about groundwater on our planet, from a global perspective and in terms of area-specific factual information. Unlike most textbooks on groundwater, it does not deal with theoretical principles, but rather with the overall picture that emerges as a result of countless observations, studies, and other activities related to groundwater in all parts of the world. The focus is on showing the role and geographical diversity of groundwater—a natural resource of great importance in daily life, but poorly understood by the general public and even by many water sector professionals. Groundwater specialists will use the book as a convenient reference on the geographical diversity of groundwater. Part of the contents or interpretations offered may even be new to them or enhance their knowledge of some aspects. The many maps, tables, and references will save much time for those who would otherwise have to search elsewhere for basic information on the globe’s groundwater. • Offers an easily accessible, readable, non-technical introduction to the geography of groundwater • Provides a unique and comprehensive overview of the world’s groundwater, its quantity, quality, abstraction, use, and interactions with the environment, as well as its management and control • Incorporates the most recent data and publications on groundwater at global and regional scales • Includes references to numerous sources of information, linked to the subject and/or geographical area concerned • Supplies high information density, presented systematically and consistently • Pays attention to linkages of groundwater with other water cycle components, the environment, and the human factor

Calcium and Magnesium in Groundwater Occurrence and Significance for Human Health Edited by

Lidia Razowska-Jaworek Series: IAH - Selected Papers on Hydrogeology

Calcium and magnesium are abundant in groundwater, but the role of groundwater as the essential source of these important nutrients is very often neglected. Hydrogeochemical studies are focused mainly on distribution and behaviour of constituents that cause deterioration of water quality, such as nitrate, nitrite or iron, and manganese. Therefore, most recent books and papers concentrate mainly on these water components and only a small number of papers describe results of groundwater studies on valuable water components as calcium or magnesium. Calcium and magnesium are of great importance to human health and inadequate intake of either nutrient can impair health. The main objective of this IAH Selected Papers book is to present the results of the studies on calcium and magnesium in groundwater as well as their importance for human health. Catalog no.

Ground Water Changes in Flood Risk in Europe

Economic Incentives for Stormwater Control

Edited by

Zbigniew W. Kundzewicz

Hale W. Thurston

Research Centre of Agricultural and Forest Environment, Poznan, Poland

Floods are the most prevalent natural hazard in Europe, despite a long history of flood defence measures. Has flood risk increased in Europe? How, where, and why? Are climate change impacts apparent? Do socio-economic trends and associated land-use and land-cover change contribute to risk? Specific aspects of flood risk change across Europe, national and regional perspectives, detection and attribution of change, the re-insurer’s view point, and historical floods and future projections of flood risk are considered.

General Water The Forgotten Biological Molecule

Sustainable Development Environment, Energy and Water Resources

Edited by

Denis Le Bihan CEA Saclay Center, Gif-sur-Yvette Cedex, France

M. K. Ghosh Roy

Kyoto University, Japan

NGO Millennium Institute of Energy and Environment, Kolkata, India

The main objective of this book is to bring together multidisciplinary contributions from leading authorities on the properties and roles of water in cell systems which are otherwise dispersed in the literature and difficult to gather. The authors are drawn from areas of physics, chemistry, biology, and physiology, where water plays a central role. The book focuses on current research and developments in the theoretical and experimental studies of water in biological systems and compounds, such as interaction with hydrophobic or hydrophilic structures, protein, and membrane surfaces. It provides insights into the importance of water in cellular processes and physiology and, ultimately, in life, brain function, and health.

The over-exploitation of the Earth’s resources has brought about an unsustainable situation where biodiversity and ecological balance are under threat. But the most immediate concern is global warming, caused by high anthropogenic emission of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Climate change is threatening the Earth with severe drought and floods, storms, and cyclones; rising sea levels and inundation of low coastal areas; disruption in the agricultural crop pattern; and serious problems with availability of fresh water. This book engages researchers, graduate students, and social activists to work for the mitigation of and adaptation with global warming and climate change.
