This sweeping study traces the development of water policy in the United States from the 19th century to the present day, exploring the role of legislation in appropriating access to water to the American people.
Consolidates difficult-to-locate documents on United States water policy
Covers topics as diverse as water doctrine, water rights, pollution control, wildlife conservation, invasive species regulation, and environmental damage mitigation
Describes the impact of climate change on water supply and safety
Focuses solely on the water issues affecting the United States
The series Advances in Industrial Control aims to report and encourage technology transfer in control engineering. The rapid development of control technology impacts all areas of the control discipline. New theory, new controllers, actuators, sensors, new industrial processes, computer methods, new applications, new philosophies..., new challenges. Much of this development work resides in industrial reports, feasibility study papers and the reports of advanced collaborative projects. The series offers an opportunity for researchers to present an extended exposition of such new work in all aspects of industrial control for wider and rapid dissemination. The environmental aspects of all of our society's activities are extremely important if the countryside; the sea and wildernesses are to be fully enjoyed by future generations. Urban waste in all its manifestations presents a particularly difficult disposal problem, which must be tackled conscientiously to prevent long lasting damage to the environment. Technological solutions should be seen as part of the available options. In this monograph, the authors M. R. Katebi, M. A. Johnson and J. Wilkie seek to introduce a comprehensive technological framework to the particular measurement and control problems of wastewater processing plants. Of course the disposal of urban sewage is a long-standing process but past solutions have used options (disposal at sea) which are no longer acceptable. Thus to meet new effluent regulations it is necessary to develop a new technological paradigm based on process control methods, and this is what the authors attempt to provide.
How will Australian water resources law provide for the management and sharing of water resources between human uses and sustaining ecosystems? Over the past fifteen years Australian parliaments have undertaken a national program of fundamental law reform to address these issues. The resultant state and territory legislation is the product of the most significant reforms since water resources statutes were first enacted over a century ago. The Commonwealth Parliament has entered the field of water resource management and, with the support of some state-referred legislative powers, it has enacted a framework for the national oversight of water resources management in the Murray-Darling basin in addition to other provisions with nationwide operation. Water Resources Law is an invaluable resource for practitioners, academics, environmentalists and students and anyone interested in tracing the legal history and policy development of these reforms. The authors explain in practical terms how the new water resources legislation seeks to implement the national reform policies. Important Features: · A definitive and scholarly treatise · Covers each Australian jurisdiction · Authoritative and accessible · Informative and analytical
A thoroughly revised and updated edition of the classic text on surface mechanics, this book provides a rigorous derivation of surface properties such as temperature and deformation using continuum mechanics. The discussion is animated by the authors' decades of experience in experimental mechanics. This new edition has been updated to include many techniologically motivated problems and solutions, especially computer solutions. Intended for graduate students of mechanics and mechanical engineering, the book will also be of interest to applied mathematicians and others interested in tribology.
New York's anglers and naturalists will enjoy this handy field guide to help them identify 65 species offreshwater fish. Whether brook trout in the Adirondacks or striped bass on the East Coast, or any number of colorful sunfishes from ponds and creeks in between, this guide describes any species likely to be caught by hook-and-line.The noted diagnostic characters and beautiful color illustrations will prove an indispensable aid for identification. Included are notes on preferred habitat and favorite baits for landing each species. This 12-panel guide conveniently folds up in to a packet narrow enough to fit in a back pocket, glovebox, or tackle box yet sturdy enough to stand up under repeated use durable lamination also makes it waterproof.
