Natriuretic Peptides: The Hormones of the Heart
Natriuretic Peptides: The Hormones of the Heart

Modern cardiovascular science has produced a revolutionary new idea: the heart acts not merely as a pump, but as a "gland", that is as a regulator of circulatory homeostasis and salt-water balance. This book combines the classical heamodynamic view with the new neuro-hormonal paradigm, in all its potential clinical implications. The...

Radiobiology and Environmental Security (NATO Science for Peace and Security Series C: Environmental Security)
Radiobiology and Environmental Security (NATO Science for Peace and Security Series C: Environmental Security)

This volume - like the N.A.T.O. Advanced Research Workshop on which it is based - addresses the fundamental science that contributes to our understanding of the potential risks from ecological terrorism, i.e. dirty bombs, atomic explosions, intentional release of radionuclides into water or air. Both effects on human health (D.N.A. and...

Tidal Power: Harnessing Energy from Water Currents
Tidal Power: Harnessing Energy from Water Currents

As the global supply of conventional energy sources, such as fossil fuels, dwindles and becomes more and more expensive, unconventional and renewable sources of energy, such as power generation from water sources, is becoming more and more important.  Hydropower has been around for decades, but this book suggests new methods that are...

Xenobiotics in the Urban Water Cycle: Mass Flows, Environmental Processes, Mitigation and Treatment Strategies (Environmental Pollution)
Xenobiotics in the Urban Water Cycle: Mass Flows, Environmental Processes, Mitigation and Treatment Strategies (Environmental Pollution)

The presence of xenobiotics in the aquatic environment is seen as one of the biggest challenges for a sustainable water future. Thus, there is a need to understand, in an integrated manner, the sources, flow paths, fate and effects of xenobiotics in the urban water cycle.

This book is an authoritative and comprehensive reference source...

The Hundred-Year Lie: How to Protect Yourself from the Chemicals That Are Destroying Your Health
The Hundred-Year Lie: How to Protect Yourself from the Chemicals That Are Destroying Your Health

In a devastating exposé in the tradition of Silent Spring and Fast Food Nation, investigative journalist Randall Fitzgerald warns how thousands of man-made chemicals in our food, water, medicine, and environment are making humans the most polluted species on the planet. A century ago in 1906, when Congress enacted the...

Drinking Water and Infectious Disease: Establishing the Links
Drinking Water and Infectious Disease: Establishing the Links

There still exists considerable uncertainty in many countries about the contribution of drinking water to sporadic cases of disease. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), in cooperation with the World Health Organization (WHO), led the Workshop on Molecular Technologies for Safe Drinking Water in 1998 to address...

Chemical Analysis of Contaminated Land (Sheffield Analytical Chemistry)
Chemical Analysis of Contaminated Land (Sheffield Analytical Chemistry)
This book sets out to provide a description of the chemical analysis of potentially contaminated land for all those involved in risk assessment. It is not intended as a recipe book of analytical methods. Indeed, with the wide range of techniques and options available, it would be impracticable and unnecessary to document all potential methods, and...
Classification, Parameter Estimation and State Estimation: An Engineering Approach Using MATLAB
Classification, Parameter Estimation and State Estimation: An Engineering Approach Using MATLAB
Engineering disciplines are those fields of research and development that attempt to create products and systems operating in, and dealing with, the real world. The number of disciplines is large, as is the range of scales that they typically operate in: from the very small scale of nanotechnology up to very large scales that span whole regions,...
