About this book

This book features the proceedings of the International Conference on Applied Sciences and the Environment (ASE '98). Organised by the Universidad de Cadiz, Spain, and the Wessex Institute of Technology, UK, this meeting also incorporated part of V Jornadas de Medio Ambiente (JORMA V). Bringing together mathematicians, physicists, chemists, environmental scientists and engineers, the conference provided a discussion forum for all scientists working with mathematical models for the environment in different fields and types of applications. They were therefore able to share knowledge and experiences from their separate fields and contribute potential solutions to a wide variety of environmental problems. The 29 papers featured are divided under the following headings: Measurement and Data Analysis; Pollutants and Environmental Chemistry; and Environmental Management and Control.


SECTION 1: MEASUREMENT AND DATA ANALYSIS Comparisons between Q-R-mode methods in the study of distribution of recent facies in the sea floors of the Cadiz Bay; Identifying outliers - a look by a grand tour; Application of fuzzy logic for on-line control of a laboratory-scale anaerobic reactor; Descriptive analysis of several pollutants measured by a monitoring network in an urban area; Analysis of atmospheric ozone measurements in an urban area; Data Base management system, GIS and remote sensing in the study of the Tinto-Odiel estuary system (SW Spain); Planning optimal designs for regression problems with correlated observations; NOx, SO2, and TSP concentration levels from a monitoring network in the 'Campo de Gibraltar' region and their contributing sources; Successive sampling using a product estimate; Analysis of a non-similar unit root test: a Monte Carlo investigation; Measurement of current tritium concentrations in winter and summer precipitation at Las Vegas, Nevada (USA); Some applications of Monte Carlo methods in urban climate; MINDAN Procedure and its application in the statistical control of urban pollution; Statistical methods in climatology: a case study; A generalization of Mitscherlich-Spillman's model; An application of Lorenz Curve in the study of population inequality; A statistical and strategic survey of oil pollution in the Mediterranean Sea; Fiber optic chemical sensors: sol-gel approach. SECTION 2: POLLUTANTS AND ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMISTRY - Stable isotope technique for evaluation of organic matter movement and coastal environment status; A simplified model for pollution levels prediction in urban areas; Use of gamma radionuclides as tracers to investigate transport of sediments in the Bay of C?diz; Anaerobic treatment of cattle manure in a UASB reactor; Empirical relationships between fuel consumption and atmospheric concentration levels in an urban area; Hydrological analysis and modeling the impact of a phosphogypsum stack on a surficial aquifer. SECTION 3: ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL High sensitive optical microelectronics sensors for the control of pollutants; Water quality modeling for the analysis of the WTP and dredging effects in Masan Harbor; Software Pro-WELLS for the delimitation of perimeters protecting catchment sites in Morocco; Measuring water quality as a limiting factor for the economy in the Mid-Ebro Valley; Analysis of water pollution with input-output models; Wastewater treatment in sewer systems with biofilms.
