Life Support & Biosphere Science
Life Support Biosph Sci
Published/Hosted by Cognizant Communication Corporation.
Discontinued in 2002. Continued by Habitation (1542-9660). Life Support & Biosphere Science International Journal of Earth/Space is designed to meet the needs of an emerging field of study necessitated by the innate human interest in exploration. As mankind stretches the limits of environmental understanding in space, under the sea, and in harsh Earth environments, new lessons are learned that affect our daily travels on spaceship Earth. Small spacecraft and submarines have used physical/chemical measures to recycle clean air and fresh water, and the principles of these small, unforgiving systems are directly applicable to understanding life support on Earth. As plants are added and biospheric systems become larger, basic concepts of cycling of elements and the importance of biodiversity have direct implications for issues of global warming, the protection of endangered species, and clean water requirements. Life Support & Biosphere Science provides a forum for sharing of these concepts among diverse groups, bringing the issues of Earth in touch with the issues of space. The forum will include the written word as a spectrum from news and event summaries to peer-reviewed technical articles. The Journal will meet the needs of Life Support and Biospheric Scientists, those interested in the design and manufacture of air and water systems, and those entrusted with the responsibility for educating the public while entertaining them.
