Summary:
This book is the definitive reference work documenting and evaluating hypobaric (low pressure) storage and is written by the world's leading authority on the subject. It is a detailed account of the mechanisms of postharvest gas exchange, heat transfer and water loss in fresh produce, and the effect of hypobaric conditions on each process. The book also contains a critical review of all available information on hypobaric storage, this includes horticultural commodity requirements, laboratory research, and the design of hypobaric warehouses and transportation containers.
