Effects of Chemicals on People and the Environment

Effects of Chemicals on People and the Environment

Date: March 1984
Creator: Dickson, Kenneth L.
Description: This pamphlet discusses the effects of chemicals on people and the environment. Chemicals provide many benefits to mankind. They also create a wide variety of problems. In this pamphlet, the author will examine some of the benefits of chemicals to mankind. The author also will examine some of the problems chemicals have caused, are causing and may cause in the future. Obviously, we seek to have the benefits outweigh the problems. Whether you feel that the benefits outweigh the problems depends to a large extent on your understanding of the issues, your economic condition, your philosophy of life, and many other factors. Basically, the author hopes to share with you his perspective on the use of chemicals and identify some of the opportunities and challenges facing us as interdependent citizens and residents of communities throughout Texas and indeed the world.

Date: 1998
Creator: Ferring, C. Reid & Yates, Bonnie C.
Description: This report describes the results of excavations performed by the Institute of Applied Sciences at the Lewisville Lake project, Denton County, Texas. This field work, conducted in 1988, consisted of excavation of five prehistoric sites deemed eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. The prehistoric sites include Early/Middle/Archaic to Late Prehistoric II occupations. New data were obtained pertaining to resource utilization, past environments, and adaptive strategies. These analyses documented changes in past environments and associated human responses. Adaptive strategies included changes in territoriality, raw material acquisition and faunal procurement.

Quantitative Analysis of Water and Biological Samples for Determination of Haleogenated Organics in the Upper Trinity River, Texas : Final Technical Report

Date: [1976]
Creator: Johnson, David E.
Description: This study had three objectives: 1) to develop a method for the quantitative determination of total organic bound chlorine in water and biological samples using Source-Excited X-Ray Fluorescence, 2) to provide training in the use of analytical techniques for students from different disciplines, and 3) to use an interdisciplinary approach involving students of biology, chemistry, and physics to investigate a complex environmental problem. Only the first objective is treated in detail in this volume.
