Title:Physics of Societal Issues [electronic resource] : Calculations on National Security, Environment, and Energy
Author(s): David Hafemeister
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides the reader with essential tools needed to analyze complex societal issues and demonstrates the transition from physics to modern-day laws and treaties. This second edition features new equation-orientedmaterial and extensive data s ets drawing upon current information from experts in their fields. Problems to challenge the reader and extend discussion are presented on three timely issues: National Security:Weapons, Offense, Defense, Verification, Nuclear Proliferation, Terrorism Environment: Air/Water, Nuclear, Climate Change, EM Fields/Epidemiology Energy: Current Energy Situation, Buildings, SolarBuildings, Renewable Energy, Enhanced End-Use Efficiency, Transportation, Economics Praise for the first edition: This insight is n eeded in Congress and the Executive Branch. Hafemeister, a former Congressional fellow with wideWashington experience, has written a book for physicists, chemists and engineers who want to learn science and policy on weapons, energy, and the environment. Scientists who want to make a difference will want this book. RichardScribner, first Director, Congressional Science and Engineering Fellow Program, AAAS Hafemeister shows how much one can understand about nuclear weapons and missile issues through simpl e back-of-the-envelope calculations. He alsoprovides compact explanations of the partially successful attempts that have been made over the past 60 years to control these weapons of mass destruction. Hopefully, Physics of Societal Issues will help interes t a new generation ofphysicists in continuing this work. Frank von Hippel, Professor, Princeton, former Assistant Director, National Security, White House, OSTP Energy policy must be quantitative. People who don't calculate economic tradeoffs oftenchampi on simplistic hardware. The solution is more... nuclear power, or electric cars, or photovoltaics, etc. Some simple physics will s

Note:This book results from a NATO Advanced Research Workshop titled Technological Innovations in CBRNE Sensing and Detection for Safety, Security, and Sustainability held in Yerevan, Armenia in 2012. The objective was todiscuss and exchange views as to h ow fusion of advanced technologies can lead to improved sensors/detectors in support of defense, security, and situational awareness. The chapters range from policy and implementation, advanced sensorplatforms using stand-off (THz and optical) and point-c ontact methods for detection of chemical, nuclear, biological, nuclear and explosive agents and contaminants in water, to synthesis methods for several materials used for sensors.In view of asymmetric, kinetic, and distributed nature of threat vectors, an emphasis is placed to examine new generation of sensors/detectors that utilize an ecosystems of innovation and advanced sciences convergence in support ofeffective counter-measures against CBRNE threats. The book will be of considerable interest and valu e to those already pursuing or considering careers in the field of nanostructured materials, and sensing/detection of CBRNE agentsand water-borne contaminants. For policy implementation and compliance standpoint, the book serves as a resource of several i nformative contributions. In general, it serves as a valuable source of information for those interested inhow nanomaterials and nanotechnologies are advancing the field of sensing and detection using nexus of advanced technologies for scientists, technol ogists, policy makers, and soldiers and commanders

Title:Preventive Methods for Coastal Protection [electronic resource] : Towards the Use of Ocean Dynamics for Pollution Control
Author(s): Tarmo Soomere
Ewald Quak
Date:2013
Publisher:Heidelberg : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The aim of the book is to present for non-specialist researchers as well as for experts a comprehensive overview of the background, key ideas, basic methods, implementation details and a selection of solutions offered by a noveltechnology for the opt imisation of the location of dangerous offshore activities in terms of environmental criteria, as developed in the course of the BalticWay project. The book consists of two parts. The first part introduces thebasic principles of ocean modeling and depict s the long way from the generic principles to the practical modeling of oil spills and of the propagation of other adverse impacts. The second part focuses on the techniques for solving theinverse problem of the quantification of offshore areas with respe ct to their potential to serve as a source of environmental danger to vulnerable regions (such as spawning, nursing or also tourist areas). The chapters are writtenin a tutorial style they are mostly self-contained and understandable for non-specialist r esearchers and students. They are carefully peer-reviewed by international experts. The goal was to produce a book that highlights all keysteps, methods, models and data sets it is necessary to combine in order to produce a practically usable technology a nd/or decision support system for a particular sea region. Thus the book is useful not only as a description and amanual of this particular technology but also as a roadmap highlighting the complicated technical issues of ocean modeling for practical purp oses. It describes the approaches taken by the authors in an understandable way and thus isuseful for educational purposes, such as a course in industrially and environmentally relevant applications of ocean modeling

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In this brief we consider some stochastic models that may be used to study problems related toenvironmental matters, in particular, air pollution. The impact of exposure toair pollutants on people's health is a very clearand well documented subject. Therefore, it is veryimportant to obtain ways to predict or explain the behaviour of pollutants in general. Dependingon the type of question that one is interested in answering, there are several ofways studying thatproblem. Among them we may quote, analy sis of the time series of the pollutants' measurements,analysis of the information obtained directly from the data, for instance, daily, weekly or monthlyaverages andstandard deviations. Another way to study the behaviour of pollutants in general isthroug h mathematical models. In the mathematical framework we may have for instance deterministic or stochastic models. The type of models that we aregoing to consider in this brief are thestochastic ones

Title:Pollution Under Environmental Regulation in Energy Markets [electronic resource]
Author(s): Francesco Gull
Date:2013
Publisher:London : Springer London : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Pollution Under Environmental Regulation in Energy Markets provides a study of environmental regulation when energy markets are imperfectly competitive. This theoretical treatment focuses on three relevant cases of energy markets.First, the residenti al space heating sector where hybrid regulation such as taxation and emissions trading together are possible. Second, the electricity market where transactions are organized in the form of multi-period auctions.Third, namely natural gas (input) and electr icity (output) markets where there is combined imperfect competition in vertical related energy markets. The development of free or low carbon technologies supported by energy policies,aiming at increasing security of supply, is also explored whilst cons idering competition policies that reduce market power in energy markets thus improving market efficiency. Pollution Under Environmental Regulation in Energy Marketsdiscusses the key issues of whether imperfect competition can lessen the ability of environ mental policy to reduce pollution and/or to minimize the cost of meeting environmental targets. Policymakers, analysts and researchers gain athorough understanding of the performance of environmental policy from Pollution Under Environmental Regulation i n Energy Markets leading to better design of simulation models of performance and costs of environmental regulation

Note:Light pollution is a major threat to astronomy across the entire developed world. The night sky that most of us can see bears little relationship to the spectacular vistas that our ancestors have gazed at fortens of thousands ofyears. It is ironic th at as our understanding of the universe has improved, our ability to see it has been dramatically reduced by the skyglow of our civilization. In the second edition of Light Pollution - Responses and Remedies, BobMizon delves into the history and practice of lighting and how its misue has not only stolen the stars, but blighted our lives and those of our fellow-creatures on this planet. This book suggests how we can win back the night sky andat the same time save energy and money, improve our health, and e ven lower crime rate! It also includes a list of targets for urban stargazers, and recommendations for ensuring sane lighting worldwide

Title:The Second Law of Economics [electronic resource] Energy, Entropy, and the Origins of Wealth
Author(s): Reiner Kmmel
Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Nothing happens in the world without energy conversion and entropy production. These fundamental natural laws are familiar to most of us when applied to the evolution of stars, biological processes, or the working of an internalcombustion engine, but what about industrial economies and wealth production, or their constant companion, pollution? Does economics conform to the First and the Second Law of Thermodynamics? In this important book, ReinerKmmel takes us on a fascinating tour of these laws and their influence on natural, technological, and social evolution. Analyzing economic growth in Germany, Japan, and the United States in light of technological constraints oncapital, labor, and energy, Professor Kmmel upends conventional economic wisdom by showing that the productive power of energy far outweighs its small share of costs, while for labor just the opposite is true. Wealth creation byenergy conversion is accompanied and limited by polluting emissions that are coupled to entropy production. Th ese facts constitute the Second Law of Economics. They take on unprecedented importance in a world that is facing peakoil, debt-driven economic turmoil, and threats from pollution and climate change. They complement the First Law of Economics: Wealth is a llocated on markets, and the legal framework determines the outcome. By applying the First andSecond Law we understand the true origins of wealth production, the issues that imperil the goal of sustainable development, and the technological options that a re compatible both with this goal and with natural laws. The criticalrole of energy and entropy in the productive sectors of the economy must be realized if we are to create a road map that avoids a Dark Age of shrinking natural resources, environmental d egradation, and increasing social tensions

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Advances in statistical methodology and computing have played an important role in allowing researchers to more accurately assess the health effects of ambient air pollution. The methods and software developed in this area areapplicable to a wide arr ay of problems in environmental epidemiology. This book provides an overview of the methods used for investigating the health effects of air pollution and gives examples and case studies in R which demonstratethe application of those methods to real data. The book will be useful to statisticians, epidemiologists, and graduate students working in the area of air pollution and health and others analyzing similar data. The authors describe thedifferent existing approaches to statistical modeling and cover ba sic aspects of analyzing and understanding air pollution and health data. The case studies in each chapter demonstrate how to use R to apply and interpret differentstatistical models and to explore the effects of potential confounding factors. A working k nowledge of R and regression modeling is assumed. In-depth knowledge of R programming is not required to understand and run the examples.Researchers in this area will find the book useful as a ``live'' reference. Software for all of the analyses in the bo ok is downloadable from the web and is available under a Free Software license. The reader is free to run theexamples in the book and modify the code to suit their needs. In addition to providing the software for developing the statistical models, the aut hors provide the entire database from the National Morbidity Mortality and Air PollutionStudy (NMMAPS) in a convenient R package. With the database, readers can run the examples and experiment with their own methods and ideas. Roger D. Peng is an Assistan t Professor in the Department of Biostatistics at the Johns HopkinsBloomberg School of Public Health. He is a prominent researcher in the areas of air pollution and health risk assessment and statistica
