  • Gravity, Geoid and Geodynamics 2000

    This symposium continued the tradition of mid-term meetings held between the joint symposia of International Geoid and Gravity Commissions. This time, geodynamics was chosen as the third topic to accompany the traditional topics of gravity and geoid. The symposium thus aimed at bringing together geodesists and geophysicists working in the general ...

  • Deep Electromagnetic Exploration

    Electromagnetic waves and their role in probing the earth are important for the exploration of the earth's deep crust. This book is not only for scientists in geophysics a useful source of information, but also for professionals in oil and gas exploration, geophysicists and engineers ...

  • Fog and Boundary Layer Clouds

    This topical volume of the Journal of Pure and Applied Geophysics utilizes new information not previously accessible for fog related research; it focuses on surface and remote sensing observations of fog, various numerical model applications using new parameterizations, fog climatology, and new statistical methods. The results presented in this ...

  • The Illustrated History of Natural Disasters

    The book is a richly illustrated, pictorial album. The content and arrangement of the book is based on a collection of original rare engravings belonging to the private collection of Jan Kozák. The individual full-page reproductions give historical views on natural disasters such as: earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, avalanches, ...

  • Fronts, Waves and Vortices in Geophysical Flows

    Most well known structures in planetary atmospheres and the Earth’s oceans are jets or fronts interacting with vortices on a wide range of scales. The transition from one state to another, such as in unbalanced or adjustment flows, involves the generation of waves as well as the interaction of coherent structures with these waves.This book ...

  • A Field Guide to Geophysics in Archaeology

    Geophysics operations in archaeology have become well known through exposure on television. However, the technique is presented as the action of specialists and something of a mystery, where people walk about with strange contraptions, and results appear from a computer. This is not the case, however. Some scientific knowledge is needed in order ...

  • Pulses and Other Wave Processes in Fluids

    This book represents a comprehensive treatment of both classical and modern problems of pulse propagation. The authors provide a physical insight in the intriguing problem of pulse propagation in non-equilibrium media (unstable or admitting attenuation). A refined analysis of the acoustic-gravity waves generation in a compressible stratified ...

  • Encyclopedia of Paleoclimatology and Ancient Environments

    Concern exists over human-generated increases in atmospheric greenhouse gases and their potential consequences to society. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2007 finds that global temperatures have increased by 0.8ºC since 1850 and that climate warming is now 'unequivocal'. While the human imprint is becoming increasingly ...
