  • Metastable Systems under Pressure

    The fundamental insight and the technological & environmental relevance of metastable systems have given a strong impetus from the last decade development of extreme pressures experimental techniques, from the GPa region to the challenging negative pressures domain. The ultimate verification of theoretical models and reliable equations for ...

    This topical volume reviews applications of continuum mechanics to systems in geophysics and the environment. Part of the text is devoted to numerical simulations and modeling. The topics covered include soil mechanics and porous media, glacier and ice dynamics, climatology and lake physics, climate change as well as numerical algorithms. The ...

  • Lagrangian Transport in Geophysical Jets and Waves

    This book provides an accessible introduction to a new set of methods for the analysis of Lagrangian motion in geophysical flows. These methods were originally developed in the abstract mathematical setting of dynamical systems theory, through a geometric approach to differential equations. Despite the recent developments in this field and the ...

  • 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: ...

  • Artificial Intelligence and Dynamic Systems for Geophysical Applications

    The book presents new clustering schemes, dynamical systems and pattern recognition algorithms in geophysical, geodynamical and natural hazard applications. The original mathematical technique is based on both classical and fuzzy sets models. Geophysical and natural hazard applications are mostly original. However, the artificial intelligence ...

  • Assessing and Managing Earthquake Risk

    This book points out the need of a multidisciplinary approach in the field of risk assessment and management. It provides an overview of the problems, approaches and common practices directly related to earthquake risk mitigation and, in particular, to the preparation of earthquake emergency plans. Written by a team of specialists from different ...

  • Perspectives in Modern Seismology

    Introduction.- Earthquake Early Warning Systems.- A Combined Geophysical/Engineering Approach of the Seismic Safety of Long-Span Bridges.- Earthquake Modelling in the Dead Sea Basin.- Nonlinear Seismology - The Seismology of the XXI Century.- Structure of the Upper Mantle beneath Northern Eurasia Derived from Russian Deep-Seismic PNE Profiles.- ...

  • Earth Observation with CHAMP

    In the summer of 2000 the German geo-research satellite CHAMP was launched into orbit. Its innovative payload arrangement and the low initial orbit allow CHAMP to simultaneously collect and almost continuously analyse precise data relating to gravity and magnetic fields at low altitude. In addition, CHAMP also measures the neutral atmosphere and ...

  • 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 ...

  • The Complex Faulting Process of Earthquakes

    This book extends our understanding of the faulting process of natural earthquakes as a complex system. The complex faulting process is generally described by considering a deterministic source (coherent rupture) and a stochastic source (incoherent ruptures). Long-period and short-period approximations provide the scaling law of ...

  • Recent Evolution and Seismicity of the Mediterranean Region

    The geodynamic evolution of the Mediterranean region has been often described as a 'puzzling problem' because of the complex space-time distribution of tectonic events. The gathering of new constraining information and frequent changes of data and ideas among the scientists working on this topic seems to be the most suitable approach to the ...

  • Dynamic Planet

    Part I Joint IAG/IAPSO Papers.- Part II Frontiers in the analysis of space geodetic measurements.- Part III Gravity field determination from a synthesis of terrestrial, satellite, airborne and altimetry measurements.- Part IV Earth Processes: geodynamics, tides, crustal deformation and temporal gravity changes.- Part V Advances in the realization ...

  • Engineering Risk in Natural Resources Management

    This book provides a system framework to observe, detect and monitor changes in geophysical time series for the purpose of managing natural -- mostly water -- resources. The institutional aspects of risk are considered to be an integral part of the management system. Original and novel features include the definitions of institutions, the ...

  • Groundwater Dynamics in Hard Rock Aquifers

    The apparent heterogeneities and complexities present in the hard rock aquifers makes it a challenging research to tackle groundwater problems. The intricacy increases manifold for the management of groundwater when the hard rock aquifers are situated in arid or semi-arid regions. The demand supply gap has led to the over abstraction of the ...
