Most aviation accidents are attributed to human error, pilot error especially. Human error also greatly effects productivity and profitability. In his overview of this collection of papers, the editor points out that these facts are often misinterpreted as evidence of deficiency on the part of operators involved in accidents. Human factors research reveals a more accurate and useful perspective: The errors made by skilled human operators - such as pilots, controllers, and mechanics - are not root causes but symptoms of the way industry operates. The papers selected for this volume have strongly influenced modern thinking about why skilled experts make errors and how to make aviation error resilient.

VOC Emissions from Wastewater Treatment Plants: Characterization, Control, and Compliance provides comprehensive information on the subject of Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions from publicly owned treatment works (POTWs). It describes models of emission factors so that readers will know what to expect when models need to be used for the estimation of VOCs from their specific wastewaters. The authors provide a road-map approach for air pollution abatement compliance so that managers can determine their human resource needs. POTW professionals will find information on VOC emissions from various unit processes such as sewers, preliminary and secondary clarifiers, activated sludge and attached growth systems, sludge treatment, and combustion devices.
