These assemblies are designed to give an integrated view of geodetic activities to a broad spectrum of researchers and practitioners in geodesy and geophysics. At this meeting, ...

  • IUTAM Symposium on Scaling Laws in Ice Mechanics and Ice Dynamics

    This book is the proceedings of the IUTAM Symposium held in Fairbanks, Alaska, in 2000, and addresses a variety of scaling issues in ice mechanics and ice dynamics, ranging over planetary ice mechanics, ice forces on offshore structures, fracture of ice, friction, constitutive and failure modeling, ice dynamics models, as well as textural and ...

  • Planets Outside the Solar System: Theory and Observations

    The observation and understanding of extra-solar planetary systems has become a very exciting topic that poses challenges to many fields of human knowledge. A few years after the first observational evidence of planets outside the Solar System, this field of research has experienced spectacular developments. One of the characteristics of the ...

  • The Asian Monsoon: Causes, History and Effects

    The Asian monsoon is one of the most dramatic climatic phenomena on Earth, with far reaching environmental and societal effects. Almost two thirds of humanity lives within regions influenced by the monsoon. With the emerging Asian economies, the importance of the region to the global economy has never been more marked. The Asian Monsoon describes ...
