  • The Hadley Circulation: Present, Past and Future

    The Hadley and Walker Circulations are fundamental regulators of the Earth’s energy budget. Although the Hadley Circulation is a well-known concept, surprisingly little attention has been paid to understanding both short and long-term variability of the system. This book reviews current knowledge of Hadley and Walker circulation dynamics and their ...

  • Ocean-Atmosphere Interactions

    This book presents an up-to-date analysis of ocean-atmosphere interaction. Well known experts examine diverse subjects such as ocean surface waves, air-sea exchange processes, ocean surface mixed layer, water-mass formation, as well as general circulation of the oceans, El Nino and Southern Oscillation (ENSO), and the deep-ocean circulation. Other ...

  • Salt Intrusion, Tides and Mixing in Multi-Channel Estuaries: PhD: UNESCO-IHE Institute, Delft

    Multi-channel estuaries, such as the Mekong Delta in Vietnam and the Scheldt in the Netherlands, have characteristics of both the river and the sea, forming a unique environment influenced by tidal movements of the sea and freshwater flow of the river. This study addresses a number of knowledge gaps in multi-channel estuaries by developing a ...

  • Physical Oceanography of the Adriatic Sea

    This monograph is the first book on the oceanography of the Adriatic Sea. It is a synthesis between the physical oceanography of the Adriatic Sea, its water masses, overall circulation and regional dynamics as well as its connection to the rest of the Mediterranean Sea. Topical coverage ranges from historical surveys to contemporary methods ...

  • Seventy Years of Exploration in Oceanography

    The present volume documents a fireside discussion with the world renowned oceanographer, Walter Munk, and gives the reader, whether scientist or surfer, a rare insight into a lifetime of passion for oceanography and geophysics. The book highlights the pioneering contributions Walter has made to wave prediction, ocean circulation, tides and their ...

  • Water Dynamics

    Water is the essential constituent for life and this proceedings covers the role of water in materials, earth science and geo/biosphere. It assesses the role of water in a range of earth processes and considers environmentally friendly approaches to preserving water environments for present and future generations. Included are transport phenomena ...

  • Hierarchy in Natural and Social Sciences

    Hierarchy is a form of organisation of complex systems that rely on or produce a strong differentiation in capacity (power and size) between the parts of the system. It is frequently observed within the natural living world as well as in social institutions. According to the authors, hierarchy results from random processes, follows an intentional ...

  • API RP 13D Standard for Exploration & Production

    The objective of this Recommended Practice (RP) is to provide a basic understanding of and guidance about drilling fluid rheology and hydraulics, and their application to drilling operations.The target audience for this RP covers both the office and wellsite engineer. The complexity of the equations used is such that a competent engineer can use a ...

  • Modelling Ocean Climate Variability

    In this wide-ranging and comprehensive review of the historical development and current status of ocean circulation models, the analysis extends from simple analytical approaches to the latest high-resolution numerical models with data assimilation. The authors, both of whom are pioneer scientists in ocean and shelf sea modelling, look back at the ...

  • Chemolithoautotrophic Bacteria

    Bacteria change the surface of the Earth. All kinds of bacteria reside in the biosphere, and although sometimes they may cause damage, they also help in cleaning the surface of the Earth and in the circulation of various substances. Chemolithoautotrophic bacteria in particular have a unique and intimate relationship with inorganic substances and ...

  • Coalbed Methane: Scientific, Environmental and Economic Evaluation

    This special publication on coalbed gas is multidisciplinary in scope and covers a wide range of aspects from exploration through production, resource calculations, emissions, and regulatory processes. The contributions in this book result from the International Conference on Coal Seam Gas and Oil, held in Queensland, Australia, on 23-25 ...

  • Rotating Hydraulics

    The theory of rotating hydraulics is important in the study of certain types of swift oceanic and atmospheric flows. Applications include overflows in deep ocean passages such as the Faroe-Bank Channel, shallow exchange flows gaps such as the Strait of Gibraltar, and atmospheric flows such as in the California amarine layer and jet stream. Despite ...

  • Tourism and Migration

    This book makes an innovative contribution to understanding the relationships between two of the most significant social and economic phenomena of contemporary society: tourism and migration. This has hitherto been a largely neglected field of research but there is now burgeoning interest in the subject amongst both tourism and population ...

  • Natural Disasters and Sustainable Development

    Natural disasters are a clear example of people living in conflict with the environment. Disasters cause human, social and environmental losses and, sometimes, even threaten geopolitical stability, as in many less developed countries. They are also a problem of global concern, even when damage is local: the mechanisms are often dependent on ...

  • Modeling and Simulation in Medicine and the Life Sciences

    Mathematics in Medicine and the Life Sciences grew from lectures given by the authors at New York University, the University of Utah, and Michigan State University. The material is written for students who have had but one term of calculus, but it contains material that can be used in modeling courses in applied mathematics at all levels through ...

  • Rock Damage and Fluid Transport, Part I

    Mechanical properties and fluid transport in rocks are intimately linked as deformation of a solid rock matrix immediately affects the pore space and permeability. This may result in transient or permanent changes of pore pressures and effective pressures causing rock strength to vary in space and time. Fluid circulation and deformation processes ...

  • Solar System Astrophysics

    The book covers the field of solar system astrophysics beginning with basic tools of spherical astronomy and coordinate frames and celestial mechanics. Historical introductions precede the development and discussion in most chapters.After a basic treatment of the two- and restricted three-body system motions, perturbations are discussed, and then ...

  • Hydrothermal Processes and Mineral Systems

    Hydrothermal processes on Earth have played an important role in the evolution of our planet. These processes link the lithosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere in continuously evolving dynamic systems. Terrestrial hydrothermal processes have been active since water condensed to form the hydrosphere, most probably from about 4.4 Ga. The circulation ...
