Title:Hiroshima to Fukushima [electronic resource] : Biohazards of Radiation
Author(s): Eiichiro Ochiai
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Set against a backdrop of the recent disaster at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, Hiroshima to Fukushima examines the issue of radiation safety. The author provides important and accurate scientific information about theradioactive substances arisi ng from nuclear power plants and weapons, including the effects of this radiation on living organisms. Currently, humankind is at a crossroads and must decide whether to phase out or increase its reliance onnuclear power as weapons and an energy source. A lthough a few countries, mostly European, have vowed to abolish nuclear power as an energy source, many other countries are about to increase their nuclear power programs. This book iswritten from a Japanese perspective and thus provides an alternative to views of Western writers. The author includes rigorous scientific analyses, however maintains a broad scope which allows the book to be accessible todecision-makers and non-specialists

Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The goals of the 10th International Space Conference on Protection of Materials and Structures from Space Environment ICPMSE-10J, since its inception in 1992, have been to facilitate exchanges between members of the variousengineering and science dis ciplines involved in the development of space materials, including aspects of LEO, GEO and Deep Space environments, ground-based qualification, and in-flight experiments and lessons learned from operationalvehicles that are closely interrelated to discipl ines of the atmospheric sciences, solar-terrestrial interactions and space life sciences. The knowledge of environmental conditions on and around the Moon, Mars, Venus and the low Earthorbit as well as other possible candidates for landing such as asteroi ds have become an important issue, and protecting both hardware and human life from the effects of space environments has taken on a new meaning in light of theincreased interest in space travel and colonization of other planets. And while many material e xperiments have been carried out on the ground and in open space in the last 50 years (LDEF, MEEP, SARE, MISSE, AOP, DSPSE, ESEM, EURECA,HST, MDIM, MIS, MPID, MPAC and SEED), many questions regarding the environmental impact of space on materials remain e ither poorly understood or unanswered. The coming generations of scientists will have to continue this work andtackle new challenges, continuing to build the level of confidence humans will need to continue the colonization of space. It is hoped that the proceedings of the ICPMSE-10J presented in this book will constitute a small contributionto doing so

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: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:Radiation Damage in Biomolecular Systems [electronic resource]

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Since the discovery of X-rays and radioactivity, ionizing radiations have been widely applied in medicine both for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. The risks associated with radiation exposure and handling led to the paralleldevelopment of the fi eld of radiation protection. Pioneering experiments done by Sanche and co-workers in 2000 showed that low-energy secondary electrons, which are abundantly generated along radiation tracks, are primarily responsiblefor radiation damage through successive i nteractions with the molecular constituents of the medium. Apart from ionizing processes, which are usually related to radiation damage, below the ionization level low-energy electrons caninduce molecular fragmentation via dissociative processes such as i nternal excitation and electron attachment. This prompted collaborative projects between different research groups from European countries together with otherspecialists from Canada, the USA and Australia. This booksummarizes the advances achieved by thes e research groups after more than ten years of studies on radiation damage in biomolecular systems. The book will be of interest toresearchers and advanced students in the fields of radiation physics, chemistry and radiation therapy

Title:Phase Change in Mechanics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Michel Frmond
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Predictive theories of phenomena involving phase change with applications in engineering are investigated in this volume, e.g. solid-liquid phase change, volume and surface damage, and phase change involving temperaturediscontinuities. Many other pha se change phenomena such as solid-solid phase change in shape memory alloys and vapor-liquid phase change are also explored. Modeling is based on continuum thermo-mechanics. This involves a renewedprinciple of virtual power introducing the power of the mi croscopic motions responsible for phase change. This improvement yields a new equation of motion related to microscopic motions, beyond the classical equation of motion formacroscopic motions. The new theory sensibly improves the phase change modeling. Fo r example, when warm rain falls on frozen soil, the dangerous black ice phenomenon can be comprehensively predicted. In addition, novel equationspredict the evolution of clouds, which are themselves a mixture of air, liquid water and vapor

T he last years, we routinely hear about a renaissance of nuclear energy. The recognition that nuclear power is vital to global energy security in the 21st century has been growing for some time. Themore we look to the future, the more we can expect countri es to be considering the potential benefits that expanding nuclear power has to offer for the global environment and for economic growth, IAEA Director General MohamedElBaradei said in advance of a gathering of 500 nuclear power experts assembled in Mosco w for the International Conference on Fifty Years of Nuclear Power - the Next Fifty Years. But such a renaissance is not a single-valued andsure thing. Legitimate four unresolved questions remain about high relative costs perceived adverse safety, environ mental, and health effects potential security risks stemming from proliferation and unresolved challenges inlong-term management of nuclear wastes. Failure to answer these questions adequately could imperil the nuclear revival so many have proclaimed is n ight. This proceeding examines the status and future of nuclear power because of abelief that this technology is an important option for the regional and the world countries to meet the future energy needs without emitting carbon dioxide and other atmosph eric pollutants. The objectives, addressed to government,industry, and academic leaders, discusses the interrelated technical, economic, environmental and political challenges facing a significant increase in the global nuclear power utilization over the next half century and what might bedone to overcome those challenges

Title:Environmental Radiation Effects on Mammals [electronic resource] : A Dynamical Modeling Approach
Author(s): Olga A Smirnova
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This text is devoted to the theoretical studies of radiation effects on mammals. It uses the framework of developed deterministic mathematical models to investigate the effects of both acute and chronic irradiation in a wide rangeof doses and dose ra tes on vital body systems including hematopoiesis, small intestine and humoral immunity, as well as on the development of autoimmune diseases. Thus, these models can contribute to the development of the system andquantitative approaches in radiation biolo gy and ecology. This text is also of practical use. Its modeling studies of the dynamics of granulocytopoiesis and thrombocytopoiesis in humans testify to the efficiency of employment of thedeveloped models in the investigation and prediction of radiation effects on these hematopoietic lines. These models, as well as the properly identified models of other vital body systems, could provide a better understanding of theradiation risks to health. The modeling predictions will enable the implementation of mo re effective preventive and protective measures for people residing in areas with elevated radiation background and astronauts on long-term spacemissions. Lastly, the models of the radiation-induced mortality established the theoretical foundations of a n ew individual-based approach to radiation risk assessment. These models thus enable one to predict the mortality dynamics andaverage life-span shortening for individuals and populations exposed to acute and low-level chronic radiation. Because of its theo retical and practical benefits, this book is as useful for academics, scientists and researchers workingin the field of mathematical modeling of biological systems as it is for those working in the fields of radiation biology, ecology and medicine. It is equally useful for Aerospace companies and various corporations that contend withthe problems of environmental protection and radiation safety

Date:2006
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:UV radiation is an important part in the electromagnetic spectrum since the energy of the photons is great enough to produce important chemical reactions in the atmospheres of planets and satellites of our Solar System, therebyaffecting the transmiss ion of this radiation to the ground and its physical properties. Scientists have used different techniques (balloons and rockets) to access to the information contained in this radiation, but the pioneering ofthis new frontier has not been free of dangers . The Sun is our main source of UV radiation and its description occupies the first two chapters of the book. The Earth is the only known location where life exists in a planetary systemand therefore where the interaction of living organism with UV radiat ion can be tested through different epochs and on distinct species. The development of the human technology has affected the natural shield of ozone that protectscomplex lifeforms against damaging UV irradiation. The formation of the ozone hole and its co nsequences are described, together with the possible contribution of UV radiation to recent climate changes. Finally, we will discuss thepotential role of ultraviolet light in the development of life on bodies such as Mars, Europa and Titan. The Solar Sys tem is not isolated other external sources can contribute to the enhancement of the UV radiation in our environment.The influence of such events as nearby supernovae and gamma-ray bursts are described, together with the consequences to terrestrial life fr om such events

Date:2005
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Within a conceptual framework that is developed in the two first chapters, the actual application of systems thinking is described across a broad field of cases representing research, teaching, decision support and construction.All cases are presente d by experts who have actually been involved in the activities they describe. Thus, the broad selection of cases captures the great variation of systems thinking and how it is integrated into models and theoriesand solid knowledge pertaining to different substantive areas. At the same time all case study authors address the same set of questions that are developed in the conceptual chapters. This gives comparability across cases - chapters -and brings cohesion to the book. The focus on Sweden, an advanced country in systems thinking, reinforces the unitary context in which comparison can be made between a systems approach for better research (theory), better practice andbetter design and construction
