Highland fling by Katie Fforde( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This atlas was developed by NOAA and the Smithsonian Institution and devoted to ocean education and literacy and was a product of a partnership to develop the Ocean Hall in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. The atlas covers a comprehensive range of subjects from the physical ocean to current conservation efforts, and challenges to address to ensure a productive future for the ocean. The conservation chapter introduced marine protected areas, provides an overview of MPAs worldwide, and addresses coral reef conservation, sustainable fisheries, protection of marine mammals and turtles, and the National Marine Sanctuary System

Mapping the zone : improving flood map accuracy( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Flood Insurance Rate Maps portray the height and extent to which flooding is expected to occur, and they form the basis for setting flood insurance premiums and regulating development in the floodplain. As such, they are an important tool for individuals, businesses, communities, and government agencies to understand and deal with flood hazard and flood risk. Improving map accuracy is therefore not an academic question--better maps help everyone. Making and maintaining an accurate flood map is neither simple nor inexpensive. Even after an investment of more than $1 billion to take flood maps into the digital world, only 21 percent of the population has maps that meet or exceed national flood hazard data quality thresholds. Even when floodplains are mapped with high accuracy, land development and natural changes to the landscape or hydrologic systems create the need for continuous map maintenance and updates. Mapping the Zone examines the factors that affect flood map accuracy, assesses the benefits and costs of more accurate flood maps, and recommends ways to improve flood mapping, communication, and management of flood-related data."--Publisher's description
Groundwater fluxes across interfaces by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Estimates of groundwater recharge and discharge rates are needed at many different scales for many different purposes. These include such tasks as evaluating landslide risks, managing groundwater resources, locating nuclear waste repositories, and estimating global budgets of water and greenhouse gasses. Groundwater Fluxes Across Interfaces focuses on scientific challenges in (1) the spatial and temporal variability of recharge and discharge, (2) how information at one scale can be used at another, and (3) the effects of groundwater on climate and vice versa
Assessment of sea-turtle status and trends : integrating demography and abundance by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All six species of sea turtles found in U.S. waters are listed as endangered or threatened, but the exact population sizes of these species are unknown due to a lack of key information regarding birth and survival rates. The U.S. Endangered Species Act prohibits the hunting of sea turtles and reduces incidental losses from activities such as shrimp trawling and development on beaches used for nesting. However, current monitoring does not provide enough information on sea turtle populations to evaluate the effectiveness of these protective measures. Sea Turtle Status and Trends reviews current methods for assessing sea turtle populations and finds that although counts of sea turtles are essential, more detailed information on sea turtle biology, such as survival rates and breeding patterns, is needed to predict and understand changes in populations in order to develop successful management and conservation plans."--Publisher's description
Nonnative oysters in the Chesapeake Bay by National Research Council. Committee on Nonnative oysters in the Chesapeake Bay (Etats-Unis)( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonnative Oysters in the Chesapeake Bay discusses the proposed plan to offset the dramatic decline in the bay's native oysters by introducing disease-resistant reproductive Suminoe oysters from Asia. It suggests this move should be delayed until more is known about the environmental risks, even though carefully regulated cultivation of sterile Asian oysters in contained areas could help the local industry and researchers. It is also noted that even though these oysters eat the excess algae caused by pollution, it could take decades before there are enough of them to improve water quality
