  1. Surface Chemistry and Geochemistry of Hydraulic Fracturing

    By K. S. Birdi

    Unique in focus, this book examines the surface chemistry and phenomena in the hydrofracking process. Under great scrutiny as of late, the physico-chemical properties of hydrofracking are fully detailed and explained in this book, including the adsorptiondesorption of gas on the shale reservoir...

  2. Absolute or Crude Risk

    Applications in Disease Prevention

    By Mitchell H. Gail, Ruth Pfeiffer

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Monographs on Statistics & Applied Probability

    Absolute risk is the probability of developing a specific disease over a specified time interval in the presence of competing causes of mortality. Although absolute risk is arguably more relevant to clinical decision making than "pure" risk, the development of appropriate statistical methods for...

  6. Handbook of Hydraulic Fracturing Additives

    Physical Hazards and Toxicity Profiles

    By Frederick W. Fochtman, Paul E. Carlson

    Chemical additives are used to enhance the mechanical effects of the hydraulic fracturing by controlling viscosity, microbiological environment, and scale deposits. In 2011, Congress published a report listing all the chemicals used in fracking (the Waxman report). This book details the physical,...

  7. Engineering Tools for Environmental Risk Management

    4. Risk Reduction Technologies

    Edited by Katalin Gruiz, Tamas Meggyes, Eva Fenyvesi

    The theory and practice of reducing the environmental risk of chemicals is a key issue in environmental protection. This volume deals with remediation technologies and introduces their functional classification, applicability and relation to natural risk reduction processes. We demonstrate how the...

  8. The Nature of Extreme Events

    By Greg Masters

    Natural hazards—floods, droughts, earthquakes, tsunamis or cyclones, hurricanes and tornadoes—have extraordinary impacts on the physical environment, plant and animal life, and on human communities. This book examines the nature of extreme events, what they are, the effects they have on natural and...
