From the tiny minnow to the massive muskellunge, there are almost 800 species of freshwater fish in North America. Freshwater Fishes is an ideal, simplified reference to the most common North American species. This beautifully illustrated guide highlights over 140 familiar and unique species organized by family to allow for easy comparison of similar species. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, pocket-sized folding guide is an excellent source of portable information and ideal for field use by anglers of all ages. Made in the USA.
The inorganic and organic water constituents, often called color-producing agents (CPAs), responsible for water color are generally referred to as water quality parameters. Utilization of water color for assessment of water quality parameters can be achieved by using the established techniques in aquatic optics attained over many decades. Aquatic optics can be subdivided according to whether the natural water body is salty (marine), inland or fresh (limnological), or coastal (often brackish). The authors describe the transformation of water color under varying natural and anthropogenically-driven conditions and, for the first time in a quantitative manner, a closed circle of issues related to remote sensing of water quality in optically complex waters generally inherent to inland and marine coastal waters. Primarily, the text synthesizes the solutions of problems in remote sensing, incorporating mathematics, hydrobiology/hydochemistry, atmospheric optics and ecology.
Freshwater is a hilarious book of poetry. Each poem is set in the imaginary town of Freshwater in nineteenth century America. The characters are fuelled with energy and humour and once you have finished the book you will want to go back for more.
"Hi, there! you big Freshman, take off your hat-yes, we're talking to you-take off your hat to the class above you-stop, don't try to get by, my sober-faced young friend. That would not be nice of you." At first the Freshman did not understand that he was the one addressed, and, when he did, his first startled impulse was to hurry by and pretend not to notice them.
Updated throughout and featuring five new chapters, this is the leading source of information on water quality, water treatment, and quality control
Authoritative, comprehensive, and co-written by more than 20 expert specialists, the Sixth Edition of "Water Quality & Treatment: A Handbook on Drinking Water" covers state-of-the-art technologies, methods in water treatment, and overall quality. This is the all-in-one source for basics of water quality, from the rationale for low water-quality standards and goals to the assessment of coastal flooding and other hazards. There is no more complete, in-depth--or more critical--guide to water supply treatment available.
"Water Quality & Treatment: A Handbook on Drinking Water, Sixth Edition" features: Five new chapters: 1. Hydraulic Characteristics of Reactors and Processes; 2. UV Technologies; 3. Natural Treatment Systems; 4. Water Reuse; 5. Formation and Control of Disinfection By-Products New appendices SI units throughout
