Challenges and Innovations in Ocean In-Situ Sensors: Measuring Inner Ocean Processes and Health in the Digital Age highlights collaborations of industry and academia in identifying the key challenges and solutions related to ocean observations. A new generation of sensors is presented that addresses the need for higher reliability (e.g. against biofouling), better integration on platforms in terms of size and communication, and data flow across domains (in-situ, space, etc.). Several developments are showcased using a broad diversity of measuring techniques and technologies. Chapters address different sensors and approaches for measurements, including applications, quality monitoring and initiatives that will guide the need for monitoring. Integrates information across key marine and maritime sectors and supports regional policy requirements on monitoring programs Offers tactics for enabling early detection and more effective monitoring of the marine environment and implementation of appropriate management actions Presents new technologies driving the next generation of sensors, allowing readers to understand new capabilities for monitoring and opportunities for another generation of sensors Includes a global vision for ocean monitoring that fosters a new perspective on the direction of ocean measurements

Every-day adventurer, Mark Barsdell, is training and working as a geologist in the 1970's when he comes upon opportunities to explore the far reaches of our planet. Through expeditions, field trips and personal adventures, he traverses the most remote regions of Antarctica, the New Hebrides (Vanuatu) and the Arctic, as well as volcanic regions of New Zealand, North America, Mexico and Argentina. Keeping meticulous records of the environments in which he was immersed, his diaries offer a fascinating insight into regions less travelled. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live on an ice-island, become lost for days on an active volcano, share a tent with an elephant seal or play hopscotch over a pool of hot sulfuric acid? Mark's travels were at a time when true adventure was possible, and through his diaries we can follow his intrepid footsteps.

This book presents the first single source of detailed guidance for designers, specifiers and constructors of in-situ concrete industrial hardstandings. Despite the fact that in-situ concrete is used commonly as the construction material of industrial hardstandings, little guidance is available to the designer. In the past, industrial hardstandings have been engineered by adapting the methods and materials used in highways and industrial ground supported floors, often leading to the inappropriate use of materials and construction methods.

This book describes the theories, applications, and challenges for different oral controlled release formulations. This book differs from most in its focus on oral controlled release formulation design and process development. It also covers the related areas like preformulation, biopharmaceutics, in vitro-in vivo correlations (IVIVC), quality by design (QbD), and regulatory issues.

"To meet the requirements of advancing technologies in the aerospace and other industries, materials are needed with application temperatures higher than those of the nickel-based superalloys currently in use. Intermetallics systems are being considered as candidate materials for advanced high temperature aerospace applications. In particular, the B2 compound NiAl is being extensively studied due to its superior oxidation resistance, high melting point, low density, and high thermal conductivity [1]. However, NiAl is brittle at room temperature and has poor elevated temperature strength, both of which render this material inadequate for structural applications. Reinforcing NiAl with second phases to form composite materials may eliminate these problems. One method for producing NiAl-based composites is by controlling the eutectic solidification process of NiAl based alloys. During eutectic growth, two or more solid phases form simultaneously from the liquid. Directional solidification of these eutectic alloys may produce in-situ composites, where one or more phases are aligned parallel to Ike growth direction. One advantage of producing in-situ composites by directional solidification is that the phases are thermodynamically stable even up to the melting point. A disadvantage is that alloy compositions are limited by the appropriate phase equilibria needed for eutectic growth. Unfortunately, the eutectic compositions for many systems of interest are unknown."--Page 2.

This synthesis will be of interest to pavement designers, construction engineers, and others interested in economical methods for reconstructing or rehabilitating bituminous pavements. Information is provided on the processes and procedures used by a number of states to recycle asphalt pavements in place without application of heat. Since 1975 a growing number of state highway agencies have reconstructed or rehabilitated asphalt pavements by recycling the old pavement in place. This report of the Transportation Research Board describes the processes used for cold in-place recycling, including construction procedures, mix designs, mixture properties, performance, and specifications.

This critical review of the status of in situ bioremediation, which is used to clean up contaminated groundwater aquifers and surface soils, has been organized according to possibilities and restrictions. Possibilities are based on present knowledge and indicate that in situ bioremediation can achieve decontamination of aquifers and soils. Restrictions encompass the scientific, engineering, legal, and other questions that stand in the way of successful development and application of in situ bioremediation. Although much has been written about bioremediation, this critical review is unique because it is comprehensive, critical, and integrated. This situation was no accident; the organization of the authorship team and the report's contents were designed to achieve each of the three attributes. Combining a good plan, outstanding individuals contributing, and an incredible amount of work, they created a critical review that defines the technical and non-technical issues that will determine how much of an impact in situ bioremediation makes on solving the world's challenges for cleanup of our legacy of improperly disposed of materials. Readers of this review will find the issues identified and connected. They will have a solid foundation for research, application, or evaluation of in situ bioremediation in the future.
