There has been an exponential increase in desalination capacity both globally and nationally since 1960, fueled in part by growing concern for local water scarcity and made possible to a great extent by a major federal investment for desalination research and development. Traditional sources of supply are increasingly expensive, unavailable, or controversial, but desalination technology offers the potential to substantially reduce water scarcity by converting the almost inexhaustible supply of seawater and the apparently vast quantities of brackish groundwater into new sources of freshwater. Desalination assesses the state of the art in relevant desalination technologies, and factors such as cost and implementation challenges. It also describes reasonable long-term goals for advancing desalination technology, posits recommendations for action and research, estimates the funding necessary to support the proposed research agenda, and identifies appropriate roles for governmental and nongovernmental entities.

This is the first volume to cover desalination in such depth anddetail, offering engineers, technicians, and operators fullcoverage of the applications, economics, and expectations of whatwill certainly become one of the most important water-relatedprocesses on the planet. Covering thermal processes andmembrane processes, this is the only volume any engineer working indesalination must have, covering both practical and theoreticalissues encountered on a daily basis. Certain to be animportant contribution to the water management community.

Industrial Chemistry is a book that brings the subject matter of a chemistry curriculum to life. Comprehensibly written, it examines the major chemistry performed by industry and looks at how such chemical processes affect our lives. In addition, as each process is presented and examined, there is a significant discussion dedicated to the by-products, pollution, necessary waste generated, and attempts to make each process ecologically friendlier, or‚‘greener’. It bridges the divide between the basic chemistry that students learn in their undergraduate curriculum, and the broader chemical processes that are used in real life.

For nearly seven years, Tobin reported from the front lines of Endangered Species Act battles. He criss-crossed the Southwest - America's hottest, driest and fastest-growing region - in search of wildlife driven to the brink of extinction and solutions to the crisis. Tobin discovered that this region, with its urban sprawl, wasteful water use and vulnerability to climate change, provides a snapshot of the issues facing species throughout the world. He also advocates a set of innovative policies that can preserve the species and wild places that sustain the population.
