Air Pollution and Freshwater Ecosystems: Sampling, Analysis, and Quality Assurance

Timothy J. Sullivan, 2015. CRC Press, Ithaca, New York.

A practical book for professionals who rely on water quality data for decision making, this book is based on three decades experience of three highly published water and watershed resource professionals. It focuses on the analysis of air pollution sensitive waters and the consequent effects associated with soil and water acidification, nutrient-N enrichment, or the effects of atmospherically deposited toxic substances. It also covers lake zooplankton and/or stream macroinvertebrate biomonitors. Explanations of the reasons behind various recommendations provide readers with the tools needed to alter recommended protocols to match particular study needs and budget.

Features

    • Supplies practical hands-on recommendations for water quality investigation
    • Covers all major aspects of water quality study, including field sampling, laboratory measurements, quality assurance and quality control, data analysis, and sampling of aquatic biota
    • Integrates knowledge of whole watershed systems
    • Provides detailed description of how to design a field study that is linked to needs and research questions

You can purchase this book from CRC Press.

 
Air Pollutant Deposition and its Effects on Natural Resources in New York State.

Air Pollution and Its Impacts on U.S. National Parks

Timothy J. Sullivan, 2017. CRC Press, Ithaca, New York.

A variety of air pollutants are emitted into the atmosphere from human‐caused and natural emissions sources throughout the United States and elsewhere. These contaminants impact sensitive natural resources in wilderness, including the national parks. The system of national parks in the United States is among our greatest assets. This book provides a compilation and synthesis of current scientific understanding regarding the causes and effects of these pollutants within national park lands. It describes pollutant emissions, deposition, and exposures; it identifies the critical (tipping point) loads of pollutant deposition at which adverse impacts are manifested.

Features

    • The first book that covers all major air pollution effects issues of concern to the national parks, including nutrients, mercury, ozone, acids, visibility- obstructing materials, pesticides, and other toxics in the context of a changing climate
    • Discusses monitoring, experimental data, and mathematical model projections of future changes in resource conditions
    • The author is a scientific authority with three decades of experience studying the effects of air pollution on resources of national parks and wilderness
    • Addresses the needs of students, scientists, and professionals who rely on environmental data for decision making
    • Includes hundreds of maps, figures, and tables that capture the pollutant loadings and their effects on each of the studied parks.

Air Pollutant Deposition and its Effects on Natural Resources in New York State.

Air Pollutant Deposition and its Effects on Natural Resources in New York State

Timothy J. Sullivan, 2015. Cornell University Press, Ithaca, New York.

In this book, Timothy J. Sullivan provides a comprehensive synthesis of past, current, and potential future conditions regarding atmospheric sulfur, nitrogen oxides, ammonium, and mercury deposition, surface water chemistry, soil chemistry, forests, and aquatic biota in New York, providing much needed information to help set emissions reduction goals, evaluate incremental improvements, conduct cost/benefit analyses, and prioritize research needs.

Ecosystem effects from air pollution in the Adirondacks, Catskills, and elsewhere in New York have been substantial. Efforts to characterize and quantify these impacts, and to examine more recent recovery, have focused largely on surface waters, soils, and forests. Lakes, streams, and soils have acidified. Estuaries have become more eutrophic. Nutrient cycles have been disrupted. Mercury has bioaccumulated to toxic levels. Plant species composition has changed. Some surface waters show signs of partial chemical recovery in response to emissions control programs, but available data suggests that soil chemistry may continue to deteriorate under expected future emissions and deposition. Resource managers, policymakers, and scientists now need to know the extent to which current and projected future emissions reductions will lead to ecosystem recovery.

This book will inform scientists, resource managers, and policy analysts regarding the state of scientific knowledge on these complex topics and their policy relevance, and will help to guide public policy assessment work in New York, the Northeast, and nationally. You can purchase this book from Cornell University Press.


 
 
Aquatic Effects of Acidic Deposition.

Aquatic Effects of Acidic Deposition

Timothy J. Sullivan (2000), CRC Press, Ithaca, New York.

The completion of the initial phase of the U.S. National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program (NAPAP) in 1990 marked the end of the largest environmental research and assessment effort to that time. The resulting series of 27 State of Science and Technology (SOS/T) Reports and the NAPAP Integrated Assessment represent a decade of work by hundreds of scientists, engineers, and economists. Since then, many new, significant, more refined studies on acid deposition have been completed and published, considerably broadening knowledge in this area.

Aquatic Effects of Acidic Deposition summarizes and synthesizes these major advancements, particularly those topics that are directly relevant to policy making. It offers complete coverage of recent findings that have substantiated, deepened, modified, or in some cases, revolutionized scientific understanding in environmental research.

This resource addresses the quantification of effects and recent developments in predictive modeling capabilities. It covers virtually all aspects of nitrogen effects research, the importance of natural sources of acidity, the influence of land use and landscape change on drainage water chemistry, and the role of short-term episodic events.

This comprehensive update thoroughly illustrates the progression and refinement in the field. Aquatic Effects of Acidic Deposition helps you make educated decisions based on the most recent, reliable data for air pollution sensitivities, effects, remediation, and future research. You can purchase this book from CRC Press.


 
Air Pollutant Deposition and its Effects on Natural Resources in New York State.

Kid’s Guide to the National Parks of California and Oregon: Written by Kids for Kids

Jenna M. Sullivan and Laura C. Sullivan (2001), E&S Geographic and Information Services, Corvallis, Oregon, 116 pp.

This one-of-a-kind publication highlights fun things for kids to do as they explore the national parklands of California and Oregon. Join 12-year-old Jenna Sullivan and her 14-year-old sister, Laura, in their explorations throughout nine of our west coast national treasures. While accompanying their parents on a trip that entailed work for the National Park Service on the natural resources of these parks, Jenna and Laura decided to do a little scientific research of their own. The fruits of their labor, together with detailed journal entries, are cleverly crafted into a delightful tale describing the trip of a lifetime for two nature-loving kids with curious minds and boundless energy. Their scientific understanding of the geology, vegetation, and wildlife of the parks belies their young ages, and they share countless insights into natural resource issues such as air pollution, acid rain, fire ecology, wildlife habitat, plant ecology, and resource management.
