Description

Advances in Water Pollution Research contains the papers that were presented at the Fourth Conference of the International Association on Water Pollution Research, held in Prague, Czech Republic, on September 2–6, 1968. This book provides information on a wide variety of subjects concerned with research on water pollution. Organized into three sections encompassing 55 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the self-purification of flowing surface waters, which is a natural, complex physico-biochemical phenomenon that has special significance in canalized rivers. This text then examines the adoption of special measures to prevent stream pollution, which is caused by the ever-increasing amounts of industrial waste waters and sewage. Other chapters consider the factors that affect the variations of water quality in rivers, including the external effects and the quantitative or qualitative variations in the volume of flowing liquid. The final chapter deals with alternative cooling water systems. This book is a valuable resource for sanitary and civil engineers.
