  • Interpretation of Geophysical Fields in Complicated Environments

    The book describes a system developed for the processing and interpretation of geophysical fields under conditions of uneven relief, variable geological medium, oblique magnetization (polarization) and an unknown level of the normal field. This is the main difference from other books. The following procedures are developed and elaborated: ...

  • Geodetic Deformation Monitoring: From Geophysical to Engineering Roles

    Geodesy is the science dealing with the determination of the position of points in space, the shape and gravity field of the Earth and with their time variations. A consequence is that geodesists feel as a permanent subject of research, the detection, analysis and interpretation of spatial deformation as well as gravity field variation. This book ...

  • Infrasound Monitoring for Atmospheric Studies

    The infrasound field, the science of low-frequency acoustic waves, has developed into a broad interdisciplinary field encompassing academic disciplines of physics and recent technical and scientific developments.In 1996, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), prohibiting atmospheric nuclear ...

  • First CHAMP Mission Results for Gravity, Magnetic and Atmospheric Studies

    The German research satellite CHAMP had been launched in summer 2000. Its modern instruments and near Earth orbit allow for the first time to collect data of the gravitational and magnetic fields and in addition to sound out the atmosphere and ionosphere by using GPS techniques. The book is the result of the first meeting of the international ...

  • Natural Water Treatment Systems for Safe and Sustainable Water Supply in the Indian Context: Saph Pani

    Natural Water Treatment Systems for Safe and Sustainable Water Supply in the Indian Context is based on the work from the Saph Pani project (Hindi word meaning potable water). The book aims to study and improve natural water treatment systems, such as River Bank Filtration (RBF), Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR), and wetlands in India, building ...

  • Seismic Instruments Journal

    This journal is devoted to the description of geophysical instruments used in seismic research. In addition to covering the actual instruments for registering seismic waves, great care is devoted to solving instrumental-methodological problems of geophysical monitoring applying various methods, which are used to search for earthquake precursors, ...

  • Non-equilibrium Thermodynamics and the Production of Entropy

    The present volume studies the application of concepts from non-equilibrium thermodynamics to a variety of research topics. Emphasis is on the Maximum Entropy Production (MEP) principle and applications to Geosphere-Biosphere couplings. Written by leading researchers from a wide range of backgrounds, the book presents a first coherent account of ...

  • Methods in Karst Hydrogeology

    Filling a gap in the karst literature, this book describes methods most appropriate for use in karst terrains. These include methods that are basic to all hydrogeological studies, such as hydraulic investigations, hydrochemistry, geophysics, isotope chemistry and modelling, with the emphasis placed on their application to karst systems. The ...

  • Dynamics of Internal Gravity Waves in the Ocean

    This monograph creates a systematic interpretation of the theoretical and the most actual experimental aspects of the internal wave dynamics in the ocean. Firstly, it draws attention to the important physical effects from an oceanographical point of view which are presented in mathematical descriptions. Secondly, the book serves as an ...

  • Polarization Optics of Random Media

    Polarization methods for the study of the light scattering properties of various disperse media have hitherto only been reviewed in specialist journals relating to the fields of geophysics, astrophysics and optics. The only texts in this field are devoted to specific topics and do not cover the subject as a whole. In this book the author presents ...

  • Light Scattering Reviews 2

    This book is to continue the 'Light Scattering Reviews' series devoted to modern knowledge and milestones in both experimental and theoretical techniques related to light scattering and radiative transport problems. It gives a valuable picture of recent developments in the area of remote sensing and radiative transfer. The work has capabilities to ...

  • Hydrogeophysics

    This book is the first to cover the fundamentals of hydrogeophysics from both the hydrogeological and geophysical perspectives. Authored by leading experts and expert groups, the book starts out by explaining the fundamentals of hydrological characterization, with a focus on hydrological data acquisition, hydrological measurement analysis, and ...

  • High Resolution Morphodynamics and Sedimentary Evolution of Estuaries

    Estuaries occur along many of the world’s coastlines irrespective of geologic setting, energy regime, and depositional environment. They represent the interface between fluvial, coastal and marine environments and they contain the sedimentary record of geological changes among these systems. However, detailed case studies on the morphodynamics and ...

  • An Introduction to Our Dynamic Planet

    This is the first undergraduate textbook to fully integrate results from geophysics, geochemistry, and petrology to describe the structure, composition, and dynamic processes that operate throughout the solid Earth. It presents an Earth system science approach to studies of the Earth’s interior and develops a global view of solid Earth cycles to ...
