Environmental Pollution Analysis:Characterization of solvent-extractable hydrocarbons from airborne particles and roadside soil particles of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Nasr Y. M. Omar
The book describes the chemical analysis of airborne and roadside soil particles in the City of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Its emphasis is on the identification and quantification of trace organic pollutants present in such environmental samples using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GCMS). The major compound groups analyzed include alkanes, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and petroleum molecular markers. It is the spirit of this book to demonstrate the use of molecular markers as source identifiers by aiding in distinguishing biogenic versus petrogenic inputs to environmental samples. Comparing the organic pollutants content of the different environmental compartments (i.e., airborne particles and roadside soil particles) is as well illustrated to help understand the transport and fate of these pollutants in the environment. Typical fragmentograms of the characterized organic compounds are presented throughout the text.
In their book Drive Nacho Drive, Brad and Sheena Van Orden traded the American Dream for the open road, and set off in their temperamental 1984 VW van named ´´Nacho.´´ After 13 months of humorous and sometimes demoralizing misadventures along the Pan-American Highway, our intrepid subjects eventually arrived at the southernmost town in the world in Tierra del Fuego. This is where 927 Days of Summer picks up the trail. After shipping Nacho from Argentina to Malaysia on a container ship, Brad and Sheena resume their journey, this time with the ambitious goal of driving all the way around the world. When they roll out of the shipping container onto Malaysian soil, their odometer turns over to 300,000 miles. Is Nacho really up for the brutal journey ahead? This hilarious and harrowing tale cuts through the sweltering jungles of Southeast Asia to the buzzing hornet´s nest of India, from the remote Nepalese Himalayas to the stony hills of Anatolia, on to the Sahara Desert of Africa, through Europe and beyond. Whether dodging rickshaws on crater-filled roads, defying Maoist rebels on cliff-hanging Himalayan tracks, getting hopelessly stuck in the desert on the Pakistani border, or becoming the subjects of an international missing persons´ case in the remote mountains of Laos, there is never a dull moment in 927 Days of Summer. Come along as a diverse cast of characters guides our determined travelers through a world of unfolding landscapes and cultures on the road trip to end all road trips, and then ask yourself: can you really just go home, unpack, and eat a sandwich? 1.
