By Dennis Diestertich

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Klima- und Umweltpolitik, be aware: 1,3, FernUniversität Hagen, Veranstaltung: Politik- und Verwaltungswissenschaft, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Im Rahmen der Arbeit wird der Einfluss gesellschaftlicher Akteure auf die internationale Klimapolitik untersucht. Die Forschungsfrage der Arbeit lautet: Wird die internationale Klimapolitik durch nationalstaatliche Präferenzen bestimmt? Trifft dies zu, so sollte die nationalstaatliche Präferenzbildung in den Fokus gerückt werden, will guy die internationalen Verhandlungen zum Klimawandel erklären. In der Arbeit wird hierzu die Hypothese aufgestellt, dass Staaten eher eine Bremserrolle in den internationalen Verhandlungen einnehmen, wenn einflussreiche nationalstaatliche gesellschaftliche Akteure ihre Interessen durch etwaige Abkommen bedroht sehen.

Zur Beantwortung der Frage werden die beiden Länder mittels des Neoliberalismus von A. Moravcsik untersucht. Neben den Rahmenbedingungen wird die gesellschaftliche Interessenlage analysiert. An die beiden Länderuntersuchungen schließt sich dann eine examine der Verhandlungen zum Kyoto-Protokoll an.

Download Stabilization and Solidification of Hazardous, Radioactive, by Roger D. Spence,Caijun Shi PDF

By Roger D. Spence,Caijun Shi

the improvement of stabilization and solidification concepts within the box of waste therapy displays the efforts to raised defend human future health and the surroundings with smooth advances in fabrics and know-how. Stabilization and Solidification of detrimental, Radioactive, and combined Wastes offers complete details together with case reports, choice standards, and regulatory concerns on waste characterization, contaminant shipping and leachability, trying out equipment for stabilized waste types, and the interactions among contaminants and stabilizing elements.

The e-book describes a variety of structures in accordance with cement know-how which are used for stabilization and solidification of wastes. It demonstrates the way to layout a stabilized waste shape, together with using statistical thoughts for producing reaction floor types for giant, advanced purposes. It offers instructions for the choice of bonding fabrics, akin to hydraulic cements, polymers, and hydroceramics, and discusses a number of ingredients and sorbents used to reinforce immobilization, binder houses, and contaminant stabilization. The ebook portrays the delivery mechanisms of contaminants in handled wastes and the way to foretell the delivery of contaminants with a number of mathematical versions. Following a dialogue of waste forms, rules, and houses of cemented waste varieties, similar to microstructure and sturdiness, it outlines the try equipment used to judge them.

Fusing study, know-how, and common perform rules taken from the firsthand adventure of scientists, engineers, regulators, and lecturers, Stabilization and Solidification of detrimental, Radioactive, and combined Wastes can be utilized in complicated environmental engineering classes and as a reference for stabilization and solidification engineers, know-how owners and purchasers, laboratory technicians, scientists, environmentalists, policymakers, and bosses in remedy garage and disposal facilities.

Download The River Nile: Geology, Hydrology and Utilization by R. Said PDF

By R. Said

This multidisciplinary ebook by way of the writer of The Geology of Egypt is the results of decades of study. It makes an attempt to reconstruct the background of the River Nile from its origins to its current form and routine and likewise to examine the volume of water which has been carried through the river in the course of the process its historical past. It examines the style within which this water used to be used in the earlier and the ways that it is going to need to be utilized in destiny if the population of the river basin are to deal with their expected needs.

Part One strains the geological background of the Nile from the time it began to excavate its valley a few six million years in the past until eventually the current form was once assumed in the course of the rainy interval which affected Africa after the retreat of the ice of the final glacial age a few 10,000 years in the past. half bargains with the quantity of water that the river and its tributaries hold at the moment and feature carried long ago. half 3 discusses the usage of the water of the Nile from the time of the 1st visual appeal of guy within the valley till the current time. It lines man's try and harness the river from the earliest time to the development of the Aswan excessive Dam. The booklet evaluates the consequences of the dam after two decades of operation. half 4 covers the current water supply-demand stability in every one basin kingdom and discusses the longer term plans of those nations to exploit the waters of the Nile.
