This book is the result of a long-term co-operative research and professional development programme between the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE), Mexico, and the University of Salford, UK. It provides the design basis for the fabrication of small and large scale commercial absorption heat pump systems, and includes a comprehensive treatment of the economics of heat pump systems. It charts the development of heat pump technology from theoretical principles to the operation of practical systems for the purification of water, both for human consumption and a wide variety of industrial purposes.
Modules to Water Access in a Changing World addresses topical issues in water supply.The book integrates detailed information on key access indices, quality, economics of demand and supply, socio-economic variables, health and sustainable development in a typical rural environment. The generation of the RTWC model and adoption of the threshold constant (K)for quantification and delineation of surplus, deficit and balance zones; water quality testing for source protection, health and food security contributes valuable data to the world of science. This book will be of utmost interest to policy makers in the water industry, geographers, hydrologists, researchers and environmental practitioners.
"Water Brats" A Play for Teenagers in Two Acts Written by Kevin T. Baldwin 6 Females, 1 Male Synopsis: Six middle-school age girls from varying backgrounds get themselves trapped together in a large underground outfall connected to an abandoned treatment plant for the local sewer system. They need to find their way out in two hours before the next water discharge floods the tunnel. They have to travel from the diffuser tunnel to the outfall tunnel, or approximately two miles under sea level, in order to reach the other exit located near the bottom of the outfall shaft, one hundred feet under water. Along the way, they find a bag filled with money and the inscription "Millborough Savings Bank" along the side. But they can't tell any adult because, while down there, anyone with a cell phone finds that their devices aren't working sufficiently, thus they cannot call for help letting anyone know they're trapped. However one text message is received and comes through on a cell phone VERY clear: "I'm coming for you!"
