By Institute of Medicine, National Research Council, Board on Agriculture and Natural Resources, Forestry, and Fishing Research Program Committee to Review the NIOSH Agriculture

The agriculture, forestry, and fishing sectors are the cornerstone of industries that produce foodstuff, fiber, and biofuel. The nationwide Institute for Occupational defense and wellbeing and fitness (NIOSH) conducts examine with the intention to enhance employee security and wellbeing and fitness in those sectors. This nationwide study Council booklet studies the NIOSH Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishing application to guage: the relevance of its paintings to advancements in occupational defense and health and wellbeing; and the impression of analysis in lowering place of work health problems and injuries.The review finds that this system has made significant contributions to bettering employee protection and future health in those fields. to reinforce the relevance and impression of its paintings and fulfil its venture, the NIOSH Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishing application may still offer nationwide management, coordination of analysis, and actions to move findings, applied sciences, and knowledge into perform. this system also will make the most of constructing strategic ambitions and imposing a complete surveillance method so one can larger establish and song employee populations in danger.

Breaking Ocean Waves: Geometry, Structure and Remote Sensing (Springer Praxis Books / Geophysical Sciences)

This publication represents the main entire description of the actual findings of an research into the spatio-temporal features of the gravity of breaking waves and the froth task in open sea by way of equipment and tools of optical and microwave distant sensing.

The research of actual and electrodynamics' houses of the gravity wave breaking procedures and the froth spatio-temporal task is a vital side of satellite tv for pc oceanography, ocean engineering, air-sea interplay and ocean distant sensing. specifically, the contribution of froth formations of varied kinds to the suggest and the spatio-temporal diversifications of radio emission, back-scattering, IR and optical parameters of the disturbed sea floor is extremely major. The statistical features of wave breaking and attendant foam forming are vitally important to ocean wave dynamics. The learn and dimension of spatio-temporal features of wave breaking and sea foam formations are of basic significance in ocean distant sensing.

Much emphasis is put on the actual elements of breaking procedures essential to degree the chances and boundaries of distant sensing equipment in particular commentary instances of an oceanic floor. quite a few functional purposes and illustrations are supplied from air-borne, ship-borne and laboratory updated experiments.

The Ocean of Life: The Fate of Man and the Sea

A Silent Spring for oceans—from "the Rachel Carson of the fish world" (The ny occasions)

The sea feeds and sustains us, yet its destiny is below catastrophic risk. during this strong and impressive e-book Callum Roberts—one of the world's preferable conservation biologists—tells the tale of the background of the ocean, from the earliest strains of water in the world to the oceans as we all know them this present day. He deals a devastating account of the effect of overfishing, deep-sea mining, toxins, and weather switch and explains what we needs to do now to maintain our speedily dwindling marine existence. Passionate and persuasive, the sea of lifestyles is a serious warning call that might attract somebody who loves the ocean and its creatures.

Interaction of ocean waves and wind

This can be the 1st publication to explain intimately the two-way interplay among wind and ocean waves and indicates how ocean waves impact climate forecasting on timescales of five to ninety days. Winds generate ocean waves, yet while airflow is changed as a result lack of power and momentum to the waves; therefore, momentum loss from the ambience to the sea is dependent upon the country of the waves.

Sex, drugs, and sea slime : the oceans' oddest creatures and why they matter

While seen from a quiet seashore, the sea, with its rolling waves and large expanse, can appear calm, even serene. yet hidden underneath the sea’s waves are a excellent abundance and diversity of lively creatures, engaged within the endless struggles of life—to reproduce, to devour, and to prevent being eaten.

Furthermore, relative to the AFF Program’s extramural portfolio, the committee was confident that they had received sufficient input from a few directors of the extramurally funded NIOSH Agricultural Centers (Ag Centers): The director of the National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety presented information at the first committee meeting in January 2007, four Ag Center directors were invited to speak at the second committee meeting in March 2007, the other five directors were queried by the committee for additional information.

Where it is involved, it does not always appear to know how and to take credit for that involvement. The outreach approaches that do exist tended to have been developed in other industrial settings and have not been appropriate or effective in reaching most target AFF populations; industrial settings differ dramatically from AFF worksites and workforce, and different approaches are needed to reach worker populations in the AFF sectors. Many examples of such models have been used by the Ag Centers and are described in Chapter 8.

Rating of Impact 5 = Research program has made a major contribution to worker health and safety on the basis of end outcomes or well-accepted intermediate outcomes. 4 = Research program has made a moderate contribution on the basis of end outcomes or well-accepted intermediate outcomes; research program generated important new knowledge and is engaged in transfer activities, but well-accepted intermediate outcomes or end outcomes have not been documented. 3 = Research program activities or outputs are going on and are likely to produce improvements in worker health and safety (with explanation of why not rated higher).
