Optical Fiber Sensors for the Environment

  • J. P. Dakin
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 54)


The limited ability of the Earth to cope with the extremes of Man’s pollution has been receiving an increasing amount of political attention in recent years, with greatest media emphasis being on global effects, such as the “greenhouse” effect and the well-publicised “holes” in the ozone layer.
