Those aspects (components/processes/functions) of ecosystems, human health, and environmental welfare considered to be important and potentially at risk from human activity or natural hazards.
7 - Radiative forcing (RF) of climate change during the Industrial Era shown by emitted components from 1750 to 2011.
Components of Solar Panels for Electricity By Peter Smith
The efficacy of solar panels for electricity may be reduced by smog in the air, angle of panel relative to the sun, clouds, rain and wind. That is why ....
Time to look at the tree bole. The bole is the main stem of a sapling or mature tree (a bole is forestry jargon for a tree trunk).
Set of components that function and interact in some regular and theoretically predictable manner.
tectonic plates ...
Common components of explosive materials, which will explode if activated by very high temperatures or shocks. 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) is a nitroaromatic. Some are listed as cancer-causing chemicals under Proposition 65.
Pesticide components such as solvents, carriers, dispersants, and surfactants that are not active against target pests. Not all inert ingredients are innocuous.
A device that uses centrifugal force to separate waste particles.
physical life The period during which it is physically possible to provide planned project services by operation, maintenance, and replacement of project facilities.
Principal Components Analysis ("PCA")
A procedure by which a spatiotemporal data set is decomposed into its leading patterns in both time (see ‘Principal Component') and space (see ‘Empirical Orthogonal Function') based ...
Certain gaseous components of the atmosphere, called greenhouse gases, transmit the visible portion of solar radiation but absorb specific spectral bands of thermal radiation emitted by the Earth.
valued ecosystem components (VECs): In environmental impact assessment, these are components of ecosystems perceived to be important to society as economically important resources, as rare or endangered species or communities, ...
The conservation of components of biological diversity outside their natural habitats.
Convention on Biological Diversity (art.2).
Gas Chromatography Analytical process by which chemical mixtures are separated into individual components for quantitative and perhaps qualitative analysis. Geothermal Energy Utilizing heat that is generated from the earth's interior.
Because they are not destroyed in the lower atmosphere, they drift into the upper atmosphere where their chlorine components destroy ozone. chloroplast An organelle in the cells of green plants.
General Circulation Model (GCM) A numerical representation of the climate system based on the physical, chemical, and biological properties of its components, their interactions and feedback processes, ...
Ecosystem A holistic concept of the plants, the animals habitually associated with them and all the physical and chemical components of the immediate environment or habitat which together form a recognizable self-contained entity.
ecosystem the total living and nonliving components of a community
ecotone a transitional area between two communities ...
The cycle by which carbon in various forms moves between the various components of the Earth's biosphere, between the atmosphere, hydrosphere (seas and oceans), ...
The endocrine system has many components, located virtually all over the body, and these components include the hypothalamus, pituitary, pineal, thyroid, and parathyroid glands, the kidney, heart, stomach, and intestines, along with fat cells, ...
A building that has outlived its usefulness doesn't have to face demolition-a process that destroys every bit of the structure, even those components that still have value.
The purpose of the IPCC is to assess information in the scientific and technical literature related to all significant components of the issue of climate change.
Contribution of a specified component (or components) to the toxicity of a mixture of related substances.
Note 1: The amount-of-substance (or substance) concentration of total toxicity equivalent is the sum of that for the components B, C … N.
Compact Development - In many locations, land cost is one of the most significant components of housing cost. Increasing the number of housing units that you can build on a given piece of land is one way to reduce the cost of affordable housing.
The three arrows on the symbol represent different components of the recycling process. The top arrow represents the collection of recyclable materials (e.g. an aluminum can, a piece of white office paper, a plastic #2 milk jug) for processing.
Ozone reacts directly with some hydrocarbons such as aldehydes and thus begins their removal from the air, but the products of ozonolysis are themselves key components of smog.
The major components of Passive House Design include a super insulated thermal envelope that eliminates all thermal bridging elements that conduct heat and cold transfer between the exterior and interior of the home.
Reconstructed Source: Facility in which components are replaced to such an extent that the fixed capital cost of the new components exceeds 50 percent of the capital cost of constructing a comparable brand-new facility.
Valued Environmental Attributes/Components: Those aspects(components/processes/functions) of ecosystems, human health, and environmental welfare considered to be important and potentially at risk from human activity or natural hazards.
is natural gas that has been processed to remove either valuable components e.g. helium, or those impurities that could cause difficulty downstream, e.g.
Tensor: In three dimensions, there are nine components of hydraulic conductivity or dispersion and, in matrix form, they form a second-rank symmetric tensor.
Details : I have used this term to mean the smaller components within the objects on the coins surface.
environmental technology : An all-inclusive term used to describe pollution control devices and systems, waste treatment processes and storage facilities, and site remediation technologies and their components that may be utilized to remove ...
Onboard Diagnostics: Devices that are incorporated into the computer systems of new motor vehicles to monitor components and systems that affect emissions when malfunctioning.
