Earthquake hazard associated with deep well injection : a report to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency by Craig Nicholson( Book )
7 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in English and held by 444 libraries worldwide
Under certain circumstances, the increased pore pressure resulting from fluid injection, whether for waste disposal, secondary recovery, geothermal energy, or solution mining, can trigger earthquakes. This report discusses known cases of injection-induced seismicity and how and why earthquakes may be triggered, as well as conditions under which the triggering is most likely to occur. Criteria are established to assist in regulating well operations so as to minimize the seismic hazard associated with deep well fluid injection
Coastal sensitivity to sea-level rise : a focus on the mid-Atlantic Region ( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 385 libraries worldwide
One of 21 climate change synthesis and assessment products commissioned by the U.S. Climate Change Science Program (CCSP), this report examines the effects of sea level rise, impacts on society, and opportunities to prepare for those consequences, focusing on the eight coastal states from New York to North Carolina. Using scientific literature and policy documents, the report describes potential changes to barrier
A citizen's guide to radon : the guide to protecting yourself and your family from radon ( Book )

Groundwater fluxes across interfaces by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 163 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

Review of the Environmental Protection Agency's draft IRIS assessment of tetrachloroethylene by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 89 libraries worldwide
"Tetrachloroethylene is a volatile, chlorinated organic hydrocarbon that is widely used as a solvent in the dry-cleaning and textile-processing industries and as an agent for degreasing metal parts. It is an environmental contaminant that has been detected in the air, groundwater, surface waters, and soil. In June 2008, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released its draft Toxicological Review of Tetrachloroethylene (Perchloroethylene) (CAS No. 127-18-4) in Support of Summary Information on the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS). The draft IRIS assessment provides quantitative estimates of cancer and noncancer effects of exposure to tetrachloreothylene, which will be used to establish airquality and water-quality standards to protect public health and to set cleanup standards for hazardous waste sites. At the request of EPA, the National Research Council conducted an independent scientific review of the draft IRIS assessment of tetrachloroethylene from toxicologic, epidemiologic, and human clinical perspectives. The resulting book evaluates the adequacy of the EPA assessment, the data and methods used for deriving the noncancer values for inhalation and oral exposures and the oral and inhalation cancer unit risks posed by tetrachloroethylene; evaluates whether the key studies underlying the draft IRIS assessment are of requisite quality, reliability, and relevance to support the derivation of the reference values and cancer risks; evaluates whether the uncertainties in EPA's risk assessment were adequately described and, where possible, quantified; and identifies research that could reduce the uncertainty in the current understanding of human health effects associated with tetrachloroethylene exposure."--Publisher's description
Enforcing federal pollution control laws ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 48 libraries worldwide
Review of EPA homeland security efforts : safe buildings program research implementaion plan by Board on Chemical Sciences and Technology, Division on Earth and Life Studies Committee on Safe Buildings Program( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 35 libraries worldwide
"The report examines the Environmental Protection Agency s three-year plan for a comprehensive response to a chemical or biological attack on a civilian or public sector facility. The report states that EPA has correctly identified the essential major research areas (detection, containment, decontamination, and disposal) but calls for an initial focus on decontamination and disposal efforts and a longer term research program."--Publisher's description
Enforcement at the EPA : high stakes and hard choices by Joel A Mintz( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"This book offers the first comprehensive history of a difficult and often neglected part of EPA's responsibilities - the enforcement of federal environmental standards. Drawing on extensive interviews with the political appointees, administrators, and staff who have provided the agency's direction, as well as his own professional experience with EPA, Joel A. Mintz explores the historical evolution of the agency's enforcement program, its institutional setting within the larger political arena, and its current strengths and shortcomings." "This history will be important reading for students of political science, public policy, environmental law, administrative law, anthropology, sociology, and related fields. It should also be read by attorneys who represent parties in enforcement cases initiated by EPA, by the agency's own managers and professional staff, and by public citizens concerned with environmental issues."--Jacket
