    Freegans embrace community, generosity, social concern, freedom, cooperation, and sharing - in opposition to materialism, moral apathy, competition, conformity, and greed. Here they have been developed into high strength sheet steels for parts of the body shell and chassis — such as door sills, door pillar reinforcement, cross members, safety beams and bumper reinforcements. Integrated Pest Management IPM - a pest control strategy that uses an array of complementary methods: natural predators and parasites, pest-resistant varieties, cultural practices, biological controls, various physical techniques, and the strategic use of pesticides. Petroleum products such as kerosene, gasoline and mineral spirits contain VOCs. Route of exposure The way in which a person may contact a chemical substance. A form of accounting that builds in a measure of our impact on nature rather than being restricted to human-based items.

    There is a strong correlation between low income and high population growth, both within and between countries. Green water cannot be piped or drunk cannot be sold and is therefore generally ignored by water management authorities but it is crucial to plants in both nature and agriculture and needs careful management as an important part of the global water cycle. For example, dermal absorption means absorption through the skin. The amount of boron which is added to achieve these characteristics is very small — in the range 0. We will not knowingly disclose confidential information supplied to you, except to the extent necessary and incidental to the purposes for which the information was supplied for example to "Find a Member"without the supplier's permission. Chemicals can also be absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream and then transported to other organs.

    Tropical cyclones which are called hurricanes in the Northern Hemisphere cause storm surges in coastal areas. Busheling This is a ferrous scrap term which originated in the USA and applies to thin uncoated clippings and stamping offcuts from manufacturing operations. Route of exposure The way in which a person may contact a chemical substance. Green Star — a voluntary building rating for green design covering 9 impact categories up to 6 stars which equals world leader. Environmental science provides an integrated, quantitative, and interdisciplinary approach to the study of environmental systems. The basic simplicity of the system can only be kept by adhering to the approved units.

Environmental glossary with metric conversion tables book

Thus, surfaces with a high albedo, like snow and ice, generally contribute to cooling, whereas surfaces with a low albedo, like forests, generally contribute to warming. Conversion Tables If you would like to see other entries added to the list, or a definition is not clear, we would appreciate your taking the time to send us a note at ceheduc health.

Citation This page can be cited as Engineering ToolBox, It is particularly dangerous if this occurs below the molten iron or slag level as these liquids can then spill out. Although the process had been used outside Europe for hundreds of years before this, this was the first time it was used on an industrial scale.

A highly permeable soil, such as sand, allows a liquid to pass through quickly. Blooms can deoxygenate the water leading to the loss of wildlife. Carbon Dioxide Equivalent CO 2e — the unit used to measure the impacts of releasing or avoiding the release of the seven different greenhouse gases; it is obtained by multiplying the mass of the greenhouse gas by its global warming potential.

Great care has to be taken in the shipping of large volumes of ores as finesas improper loading can result in liquefaction of the cargo during transit, destabilising and even sinking a vessel.

Operators can then choose the most cost-effective way of reducing emissions. Electric current: Ampere A The basic unit of electric current is the ampere. Generally applies to excessive use of green marketing and packaging when this does not take account of the total ecological footprint.

SI has no equivalent symbol for psig or psia.

An exposure assessment also describes how often and for how long an exposure occurred, and the nature and size of a population exposed to a chemical. The Kelvin scale is an absolute scale, so there is no degree. Latency period The period of time between exposure to something that causes a disease and the onset of the health effect.

During photosynthesis they form molecules with 4-carbon atoms and saturate at the given level of CO2. The health assessment is used to advise people how to prevent or reduce their exposures, to determine remedial actions or the need for additional studies.

The environment is often cited as a negatively affected externality of the economy see economic externality. Target organ An organ such as the liver or kidney that is specifically affected by a toxic chemical.

Chemicals can be metabolized by the body and made either more or less harmful. Celsius temperature is measured in degrees Celsius. The 7 Base Metric Units The metric system is the main system of measurement units used in science.

Glossary of environmental science

The most complete manual of its kind, this handy book gives you all the formulas and calculations you are likely to need in drilling operations.

Updated material includes conversion tables into metric. Separate chapters deal with calculations for drilling fluids, pressure control, and engineering. Example calculations are provided throughout. Some drills are numbers, some metric and some imperial.

This chart can be used as a comparison between the different systems, or for converting and identifying various drill bit sizes. Because of differences in numbering systems, some conversions are approximated but are within inch. Metric to U.S. Customary Conversions U.S. Customary to Metric Conversions NIST HB 44 – Appendix C - (Current Ed.) provides several convenient conversion factor tables for length, area, volume (dry and liquid measure), and mass using SI (metric system) and U.S.

customary units, including notes on British measurement units.
