  • Comet/Asteroid Impacts and Human Society

    In 1908 an atmospheric explosion in northern Siberia released energy equivalent to 15 Mton of TNT. Can a comparable or larger NEO affect us again? When the next NEO strikes Earth will it be large enough to destroy a city? Will the climate change significantly? Can archaeology and anthropology provide insights into the expected cultural responses ...

  • Risk Assessment for Water Infrastructure Safety and Security

  • Water service provision for the peri-urban poor in post-conflict Angola

    One of the important challenges of post-war reconstruction is to provide more and better quality basic services, such as water. Previous attempts at upgrading main supply systems to accommodate peri-urban areas have been overwhelmed by the explosive demographic growth of Angola’s major cities brought about by many years of civil war. This paper ...

  • Waves in Geophysical Fluids

    Waves in Geophysical Fluids describes: the forecasting and risk evaluation of tsunamis by tectonic motion, land slides, explosions, run-up, and maps the tsunami sources in the world's oceans; stochastic Monte-Carlo simulations and focusing mechanisms for rogue waves, nonlinear wave models, breather formulas, and the kinematics of the Draupner ...

  • Systems Biology

    Systems biology is defined for the purpose of this study as the understanding of biological network behaviors, and in particular their dynamic aspects, which requires the utilization of mathematical modeling tightly linked to experiment. This involves a variety of approaches, such as the identification and validation of networks, the creation of ...

  • The Evolution of Begging

    Begging by nestling birds has become the model system for investigating evolutionary conflicts of interest within families and their theoretical resolution provided by honest signals of offspring need. In response to the recent explosions of scientific papers on the revolution of begging; we have brought together twenty-four original contributions ...

  • Geomechanics and Fluidodynamics

    This monograph is based on subsurface hydrodynamics and applied geomechanics and puts it in a unifying framework. It focuses on the understanding of physical and mechanical properties of geomaterials by presenting mathematical models of deformation and fracture with related experiments. Borehole stability and water, gas and oil reservoir ...

  • Upper Mantle Heterogeneities from Active and Passive Seismology

    Approximately 20 long-range seismic profiles have been recorded since 1971 in the former USSR, using PNE as sources. The long observational range (>3000 km) provided full penetration of the earth's upper mantle to depths of >600 km giving insight into the 3D structure of the upper mantle. These data are confronted with the requirements ...

  • Chemoinformatics: Theory, Practice, & Products

    Chemoinformatics: Theory, Practice & Products covers theory, commercially available packages and applications of Chemoinformatics. Chemoinformatics is broadly defined as the use of information technology to assist in the acquisition, analysis and management of data and information relating to chemical compounds and their properties. This ranges ...

  • Offshore Risk Assessment

    Offshore Risk Assessment is the first book to deal with quantified risk assessment (QRA) as applied specifically to offshore installations and operations. Risk assessment techniques have been used for some years in the offshore oil and gas industry, and their use is set to expand increasingly as the industry moves into new areas and faces new ...

  • Monitoring the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban-Treaty (CTBT): Source Location

    In September 1996, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), prohibiting nuclear explosions worldwide, in all environments. The treaty calls for a global verification system, including a network of 321 monitoring stations distributed around the globe, a data communications network, an ...
