Air Alert : Rescuing the Earth's Atmosphere by Christina G. Miller, Louise A. Berry  (Contributor)

Air Pollution Engineering ManualAir Pollution Engineering Manual
by Wayne T. Davis (Editor), Air, Waste Management Association

Partially underwritten by the Environmental Protection Agency, this manual provides industry and government professionals with the guidelines needed to comply with recent air pollution standards and regulations. Leading experts in air pollution control describe control equipment used for gases and particulates including operation, design principles, cost-effectiveness, and performance record. The authors explain the different processes that generate air pollutants as well as the types of emissions covering most of the industries affected by the Clean Air Act.

The definitive resource for information on air pollution emission sources and the technology available to control them.

The Air Pollution Engineering Manual has long been recognized as an important source of information on air pollution control issues for industries affected by the Clean Air Act and regulations in other countries. Thoroughly updated to reflect the latest emission factors and control measures for reducing air pollutants, this new edition provides industry and government professionals with the fundamental, technological, and regulatory information they need for compliance with the most recent air pollution standards. Contributing experts from diverse fields discuss the different processes that generate air pollution, equipment used with all types of gases and particulate matter, and emissions control for areas ranging from graphic arts and chemical processes to the metallurgical industry. More than 500 detailed flowcharts and photographs as well as an extensive listing of Internet resources accompany coverage of: Biological air pollution control, including biofilters and bioscrubbers.  Emissions from wood processing, brick and ceramic product manufacturing, pharmaceutical manufacturing, numerous other industrial processes, fugitive emissions, internal combustion sources, and evaporative losses Water/wastewater treatment plant emissions. Changes in emission factors for each source category, including particle size factors related to PM10 and PM2.5 standards. Updated MACT regulations and technologies. And much more

THE AIR & WASTE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION is the world's leading membership organization for environmental professionals. The Association enhances the knowledge and competency of environmental professionals by providing a neutral forum for technology exchange, professional development, networking opportunities, public education, and outreach events. The Air & Waste Management Association promotes global environmental responsibility and increases the effectiveness of organizations and individuals in making critical decisions that benefit society.

How did the Earth Get To Look Like This?
From the Electronic Universe Project.


The original atmosphere of the Earth, Venus and Mars consisted of Hydrogen and Helium. Those light elements, however, were heated to escape velocity by solar radiation and thus this atmosphere escaped. The current atmospheres of the Earth, Venus and Mars are therefore secondary and evolved from other processes...


Experimental El Nino Predictions
The following are experimental results from research systems developed in BMRC. These results highlight some of our current work and should be of interest to other researchers. They are not part of the Bureau of Meteorology's products and services. Only moderate skill may be expected from the forecast displayed.

Upper Atmosphere
From the Upper Atmospheric Research Satellite Home Page.


The Earth's upper atmosphere, beginning only 10-15 km above the surface, remains a frontier largely unexplored from space. As the first major element in NASA's Mission to Planet Earth (MTPE), the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) will carry out the first systematic, comprehensive study of the stratosphere and furnish important new data on the mesosphere and thermosphere.

First Entry into a Giant Planet Atmosphere:  Jupiter
The Galileo Project is a NASA unmanned mission to explore the planet Jupiter and its surrounding moons and magnetosphere. The spacecraft, which started its journey on October 18, 1989 with the launch of the Space Shuttle Atlantis, consisted of an atmospheric entry probe (Galileo Probe) designed to enter Jupiter's atmosphere, and an orbiter (Galileo Orbiter) designed to orbit the planet and observe Jupiter, its moons, and radiation belts. This homepage is devoted to background information and scientific results from the Galileo atmospheric entry probe portion of the mission.


Daily Weather Report on Mars
Brought to you by the Mars Global Surveyor Radio Science Team.  The launch of the Mars Global Surveyor from the Cape Canaveral Air Station took place on November 7, 1996. After a ten-month cruise to Mars, the MGS spacecraft executed its orbit insertion maneuver on September 12, 1997. The period of the initial orbit of Mars was nearly two days. The original mission plan called for a three- to four-month aerobraking sequence to modify the orbit to one suitable for mapping the red planet. The mapping phase of the mission was originally scheduled to begin in the Spring of 1998, and to continue for one complete Martian year (687 days).
