About this book

This is an extensive examination of the most important aspects of UVR effects on all aquatic (not just freshwater and marine) ecosystems, encompassing UV physics, chemistry, biology and ecology. It aims to bridge the gap between environmental studies of UVR effects and the broader, traditional fields of ecology, oceanography and limnology. Adopting a synthetic approach, the different sections cover: the physical factors controlling UVR intensity in the atmosphere; the penetration and distribution of solar radiation in natural waters; the main photochemical process affecting natural and anthropogenic substances and direct and indirect effects on organisms (from viruses, bacteria and algae to invertebrate and vertebrate consumers). Researchers and professionals in environmental chemistry, photochemistry, photobiology and cell and molecular biology should find this title as useful resource as should those looking at ozone depletion and global change.


Solar Radiation as an Ecosystem Modulator; UVR Climatology; Water Column Optics and Penetration of UVR; Modulation of UVR Exposure and Effects by Vertical Mixing and Advection; Solar UVR and Aquatic Carbon, Nitrogen, Sulfur and Metals Cycles; Photochemistry of Chromophoric Dissolved Organic Matter in Natural Waters; Photoactivated Toxicity in Aquatic Environments; Reactive Oxygen Species in Aquatic Ecosystems; UVR-Induced DNA Damage in Aquatic Organisms; Photoprotective Physiological and Biochemical Responses of Aquatic Organisms to UVR; Photosynthesis in the Aquatic Environment as Affected by UVR; Subject Index.
