    This is a handbook of practical techniques for making the best possible interpretation of geological structures at the map scale and for extracting the maximum amount of information from surface and subsurface maps. The 3-D structure is defined by internally consistent structure contour maps and cross sections of all horizons and faults. The book ...

  • Natural Hazards

    Natural hazards afflict all corners of the Earth, often unexpected, seemingly unavoidable and frequently catastrophic in their impact. This revised edition is a comprehensive, inter-disciplinary treatment of the full range of natural hazards. Accessible, readable and well supported by over 180 maps, diagrams and photographs, it is a standard text ...

  • Radar Interferometry

    This volume is devoted to satellite radar interferometry (InSAR), a relatively new remote sensing technique used for geodetic applications such as topographic mapping and for high-accuracy monitoring of deformation of the Earth's crust. It offers a geodetic perspective of the technique, using a functional and a stochastic model to describe ...

  • Coastal and Marine Geo-Information Systems

    This volume comprises a collection of 40 chapters by experts dealing with the application of Geographical Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing, cartography, visualisation and Global Positioning Systems (GPS) to coastal and marine environments around the world. Aimed primarily at the practising marine and coastal zone manager, it provides an ...

  • Innovations in 3D Geo Information Systems

    This book covers various aspects of spatial data modelling specifically regarding three-dimensional (3D) modelling and structuring. The realization of 'true' 3D geoinformation spatial systems requires a high input, and the developmental process is taking place in various research centers and universities around the globe. The development of such ...

  • Spatial Data Modelling for 3D GIS

    This book covers fundamental aspects of spatial data modelling specifically on the aspect of three-dimensional (3D) modelling and structuring. Realisation of “true” 3D GIS spatial system needs a lot of efforts, and the process is taking place in various research centres and universities in some countries. The development of spatial data modelling ...

  • Remote Sensing Image Analysis: Including the Spatial Domain

    Remote Sensing image analysis is mostly done using only spectral information on a pixel by pixel basis. Information captured in neighbouring cells, or information about patterns surrounding the pixel of interest often provides useful supplementary information. This book presents a wide range of innovative and advanced image processing methods for ...

  • Ecosystem Classification for Environmental Management

    The ecosystem is a central concept in modern ecology and is fundamental to sound environmental policy making. Not all ecosystems are equally susceptible to human-induced environmental change, nor do we attribute equal value to all ecosystem types. From a nature conservation point of view we are concerned about the spatial extension of ...

  • Regolith Science

    This comprehensive reference on the fundamentals of regolith science describes how regolith is developed from parental rocks and emphasises the importance of chemical, physical, water and biological processes in regolith formation. It provides details for mapping regolith landforms, as well as objective information on applications in mineral ...

  • geoENV VII – Geostatistics for Environmental Applications

    This volume brings together selected contributions from geoENV 2008, the 7th International Conference on Geostatistics for Environmental Applications, held in Southampton, UK, in September 2008. This book presents the state-of-the-art in geostatistics for the environmental sciences. It includes a wide range of methodological advances and ...

  • Analysis of Urban Growth and Sprawl from Remote Sensing Data

    This book provides a comprehensive discussion on urban growth and sprawl, and how they can be analyzed using remote sensing imageries. It compiles views of numerous researchers that help in understanding the urban growth and sprawl; their patterns, process, causes, consequences, and countermeasures; how remote sensing data and geographic ...

  • Analytical Sedimentology

    Useful as both a self-instructional manual and a guide to the analysis of sediments in both the field and the laboratory, Analytical Sedimentology provides cookbook recipes for common analytical procedures dealing with sediments. It also serves as an introduction to the principles and reference sources for procedures that generally would be ...

  • Nature, Value, Duty

    Gifford Lecturer and Templeton Prize winner Holmes Rolston, III is widely known as the father of environmental ethics. From his authorship of one of the first articles in professional environmental philosophy ('Is there an Ecological Ethic?' 1975) to his most recent article on the place of humanity in the cosmos ('Generating Life on Earth: Five ...

  • Handbook of Environmental Health, Fourth Edition, Volume II: Pollutant Interactions in Air, Water, and Soil

    The Handbook of Environmental Health is a must for the reference library of anyone with environmental concerns. Written by experts in the field and co-published by the National Environmental Health Association, this volume continues to be a valuable college textbook and major information resource on environmental issues.The two-volume Handbook of ...

  • World Atlas of Coral Reefs

    Coral reefs are one of the most biologically diverse habitats in the world, host to an extraordinary variety of marine plants and animals. They are also one of the world's most fragile and endangered ecosystems. The growth of mass tourism, combined with the boom in popularity of scuba diving, has brought these spectacular ecosystems to public ...

  • Ecosystems and Human Well-Being: Current State and Trends - Vol. 1

    Humans have changed ecosystems more rapidly and extensively in the last 50 years than in any comparable period of human history. We have done this to meet the growing demands for food, fresh water, timber, fiber, and fuel. While changes to ecosystems have enhanced the well-being of billions of people, they have also caused a substantial and ...
