Advances in Natural Gas: Formation, Processing, and Applications. Volume 1: Natural Gas Formation and Extraction comprises an extensive eight-volume series delving into the intricate realms of both the theoretical fundamentals and practical methodologies associated with various facets of natural gas. Encompassing the entire spectrum from exploration and extraction to synthesis, processing, purification, and the generation of valuable chemicals and energy, these volumes also navigate through the complexities of transportation, storage challenges, hydrate formation, extraction, and prevention. Volume 1, entitled Advances in Natural Gas: Formation, Processing, and Applications. Volume 1: Natural Gas Formation and Extraction, provides a detailed exposition of the characteristics and properties inherent to natural gas. This book navigates through diverse formation and synthesis techniques sourced from both nonrenewable origins, such as coal and oil shale, and renewable origins, encompassing biomass, sewage, algae, and food wastes as viable precursors for natural gas. The volume further delves into the intricacies of extraction methodologies applied across distinct reservoirs. Additionally, it systematically addresses the associated environmental challenges inherent to natural gas.

Fundamentals of Heat Exchangers: Selection, Design, Construction, and Operation details the design and construction of heat exchangers in both research and industry contexts. This book is split into three parts, firstly outlining the fundamental properties of various types of heat exchangers and the critical decisions surrounding material selection, manufacturing methods, and cleaning options. Other sections provide a comprehensive grounding in the theory and analysis of heat exchangers, guiding the reader through thermal design. Finally, the book shows how to apply industrial codes to this process with detailed demonstrations, designing a shell-and-tube exchanger compliant with important but complex code ASME, Sec. VIII, Div.1. Taking into account the real-world considerations of heat-exchanger design, this book takes a reader from fundamental principles to the mechanical design of heat exchangers for industry or research.

Pesticides in a Changing Environment: Impact, Assessment, and Remediation covers compounds that repel, kill or to prevent any pest. On the basis of the target killed, pesticides are mainly classified as herbicides, fungicides and insecticides. The increased demand of food on account of population explosion has compelled man to use pesticides for better crop production. However, there are many negative impacts of these chemical agrochemicals like toxicity to non-target organisms and retention in bio-systems in the form of their residues, leading to harmful effects on the food chain and food web.This book will be an important source of information for researchers and academicians working in the field of pesticide pollution, its physiology and biochemistry, and development of pesticide remediation technologies.

Continues to fill gaps between the descriptive, conceptual, and transformative sustainability scienceSustainability is increasingly important across functional sectors and scientific disciplines. Policy-makers, practitioners,and academics continue to wrestle with the complexity of risk, resilience, and sustainability, but because of the necessarytransdisciplinary focus, it is difficult to find authoritative content in a single source. Sustainability Science: ManagingRisk and Resilience for Sustainable Development, Second Edition, contributes to filling that gap and is completely revisedwith several new chapters. It asserts that all efforts for the sustainability of humankind are undermined by the fourfundamental challenges of complexity, uncertainty, ambiguity, and dynamic change. While there are no silver bullets, thisbook contends that we need systems approaches, risk approaches, participatory approaches, and resilience approachesto address each of them and endeavours to provide such. With that in mind, this book describes the state of the world(Part I), proposes a way to approach the world (Part II), and suggests how to set out to change the world (Part III).

European Glacial Landscapes: The Holocene presents the current state of knowledge on glacial landscapes of Europe and nearby areas over the Holocene to deduce the influence of atmospheric and oceanic currents and the insolation forcing variability and volcanic activity on Holocene paleoclimates, the existence of asynchronies in the timing of occurrence of glacier expansion and shrinkage during the Holocene, time lags between the identification of oceanic and atmospheric changes and those occurring in glacial extension during the Holocene, the role of Holocene glaciers on the climate of Europe, and on sea level variability, and the delimitation of landscapes that need special protection. Students, academics and researchers in Geography, Geology, Environmental Sciences, Physics and Earth Science departments will find this book provides novel findings of all the major European Regions in a single publication, with updated information about Holocene glacial geomorphology and paleo-climatology and clear figures that model the landscapes covered.
