The article is mainly talk about the interaction between glaciers and climate change. Take the Tianshan No.1 Glacier as an example. Glacier produces in climate and by the impact of climate change. The glaciers change is the result of climate fluctuations. And glacier changes in turn acts on the natural environment that contribute to climate change. Tianshan No.1 Glacier has changed significantly in the past five decades, includes glacier surface firn characteristics, ice formation zones, ice...
As defined in ISO 3833, the automotive industry include designs, develops, manufactures, markets, and sells motor vehicles, towed vehicles, motorcycles and mopeds. It plays a crucial role in the world trading. For developed countries, it is almost the pillar of the economy, because automotive industry takes a heavy part in the total revenue. Furthermore, it is inevitable that the development of this industry will push forward many relevant industry sectors. This is an integrated assembly...
Various policies, including public, urban/development and health policies are mostly linked or influence each other. As a result policy makers should remain aware of such potential relationships. This paper seeks to investigate the potential relationships between public policy, urban (development) policy and public health policy in green economy by discussing indicators of green economy like green buildings, green industries, green transportation etc and how they affect the various policies....
The discovery of mirror neurons in the frontal lobes of monkeys, and their potential relevance to human brain evolution - which i speculate on in this essay - is the single most important "unreported" (or at least, unpublicised) story of the decade. I predict that mirror neurons will do for psychology what DNA did for biology: they will provide a unifying framework and help explain a host of mental abilities that have hitherto remained mysterious and inaccessible to experiments. There...
Describe, with the help of a diagram, how the different hydrocarbon fractions in crude oil are separated by fractional distillation. Identify the main fractions by name and according to the approximate number of carbon atoms in the molecules. In the world today the primary source of fuel for most of our needs come from fossil fuels. These are in the form of coal, natural gas and crude oil. In the petrochemical industry the crude oil is refined through a process of fractional distillation. This...
is a long-term change of weather patterns from long periods of time that range from decades to millions of years. It may be a change in the average weather conditions in the distribution of weather events with respect to an average for example, greater or fewer extreme weather events. Climate change may be limited to a specific region, or may occur across the whole earth In recent usage, especially in the context of environmental policy, climate change refers to changes in today's modern...
In its list of recommendations to combat illegal dumping of E-waste, the Basel Action Network urges governments to pressure manufacturers to remove toxic chemicals from products as soon as possible. BAN also calls on strict enforcement of the Basel Convention [] and lauds Australia for its efforts in that regard. In Australia, it requires full testing of electronic waste to certify that it complies with the Basel Convention before it is exported. The BAN report on dumping in Lagos...
The energy industry is more relevant today than ever before.  As modern technology evolves, we have become an energy dependent society triggering increased demand that we never anticipated or could have predicted. Energy has become a necessity in virtually every area of life from agriculture, transportation, waste collection, information technology and communications; all of which are critical components for most functional societies. The energy industry is made up of many different subsets,...
Humans are altering the earth's environment in dramatic and increasingly pervasive ways (Vasseur, et al. 2002). The ever-increasing human population, along with an explosive increase in consumption, exacerbates the impact on aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems as a result of land use from agriculture and human settlement, natural resource use, transportation and recreation, waste from domestic, municipal and industrial development (Vasseur, et al. 2002). There is now abundant evidence that...
Any business that manufactures, handles or uses packaging or packaging material must comply with the Packaging Waste Directive 94/62/EC that initially came into force at end of 1994. The directive covers all the packaging and packaging waste located on the market within the EU, whether disposed of at commercial sites, industrial, or from private homes. The directive has both environmental and single market goals. It is aimed to manage the packaging waste and undertake the impact the packaging...
