Synopsis

Laser in Environmental and Life Sciences by Peter Hering

This comprehensive reference work illustrates the state of the art of laser-induced analytical methods in environmental and life sciences via an interdisciplinary approach. Ky techniques for remote sensing in the atmosphere as well as diagnostic methods for soil, water and air contamination and exhaled breath are described. Each a prominent scientist, the authors report on their current research; demonstrate that multi-disciplinary applications are possible; and employ examples on how existing environmental diagnostic methods have found their way into the life sciences.

Reviews

From the reviews: This book deals with a selection of interdisciplinary subjects relating to both the basic physics of the detection techniques involved and the relevant problems in environmental and life sciences. ... By and large, given the quality and clarity of the various contributions, the book can be recommended to all those requiring a readable and factual introduction into these new fields and methods of analysis. (A. Buekens, International Journal Environment and Pollution, Vol. 25 (1-4), 2005) This book deals with ... very interesting interdisciplinary areas. Prominent scientists report on their current research

and employ examples on how existing environmental diagnostic methods have found their way into the life sciences. ... Biologists, medical people or environmentalists, should recognize the new possibilities opened by these techniques. This volume may also serve to start more initiatives for a closer cooperation between physicists, chemists, biologists and medical people. (International Journal of Environmental Analytical Chemistry, Vol. 84 (14-15), 2004) This book is intended to enable biologists, clinicians and environmentalists to recognise the new possibilities that analytical techniques based on laser spectroscopy offer. It is a comprehensive reference work, which presents state of the art laser-included analytical methods in an interdisciplinary fashion, explaining the basic physics of the detection techniques as well as their applications.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

Liz Evans

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

Adam Graham

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!
