  • Remote Sensing of Atmosphere and Ocean from Space: Models, Instruments and Techniques

    This book is a collection of the lectures, held at the International Summer School ISSAOS-2000 in L'Aquila (Italy), given by invited lecturers coming from both Europe and the USA. The goal of the book is to provide a broad panorama of spaceborne remote sensing techniques, at both microwave and visible-infrared bands and by both active and passive ...

  • Ocean Sciences Bridging the Millennia

    Since the rise of ancient civilizations, human curiosity has led to relentless exploration in an attempt to understand the oceans that cover 70% of our planet. The findings of ancient maritime explorers still form the foundation of modern knowledge and research, which benefit from increasingly precise instruments and platforms such as large ...

  • Coastal oceans research and development in the Indian Ocean : status report 2008

    The CORDIO programme, which started in 1999 as a pragmatic response to the impacts of global warming on coral reefs, has over the years improved our knowledge and management of coral reefs. Data collection in the Curieuse Marine Park in the Seychelles was instrumental in guiding government policy over the management of marine protected areas, ...

  • 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, ...

  • International ocean governance : using international law and organizations to manage marine resources sustainably

    Our oceans are slowly dying, and the instruments of governance are inadequate to stop it. The international dimensions of ocean problems loom larger as we learn more about threats to marine species and ecosystems - invasive species are transported by international shipping, oceans fill with persistent organic pollutants, and nutrients from sewage ...

  • Oceanography

    In the 6th edition of Landolt-Börnstein, the field of oceanography was incorporated into the volume on 'Astronomy and Geophysics' (1952) and covered 116 pages. Since that time, the tremendous increase of knowledge and the growing significance of oceanography called for a new compilation which appears as Volume V/3 of the New Series. The topics ...

  • High seas bottom trawl fisheries and their impacts on the biodiversity of vulnerable deep-sea ecosystems : options for international action

    The deep ocean is increasingly recognized as a major global reservoir of the Earth’s biodiversity, although but a small fraction of the oceans’ ecosystems found at depths below 200 meters have been studied. This report presents findings on the current extent, location and value of high seas bottom trawl fisheries worldwide and the countries ...

  • Modelling and Monitoring of Coastal Marine Processes

    Although numerous books have been written on both monitoring and modelling of coastal oceans, there is a practical need for an introductory multi-disciplinary volume to non-specialists in this field. The articles commisioned for this book, organized into four major themes, are written by experts in their disciplines while the text is intended for ...

  • The Dynamics of ICM Practical Applications in Sustainable Coastal Development in East Asia

    Authored by Dr. Chua Thia-Eng, this 16 chapter-book shares the author's 20 years of practical experience in addressing issues related to the integrated management of the coasts and oceans. This book makes clear the rationale underlying the use of the integrated management approach, and the practices used to apply sustainable development principles ...

  • Marine Chemistry

    The carbon dioxide absorption and gas exchange at the sea surface, marine aerosols and their photochemistry, the oceanic carbon cycle as well as biomarkers in marine ecosystems, and related topics are of primary importance for understanding our global ecosystem. The topics addressed in this volume are all stemming from areas which have developed ...

  • Imaging of Complex Media with Acoustic and Seismic Waves

    Acoustic and elastic wave propagation is being investigated in media such as the ocean, the earth, biological tissues and solid materials. In these different areas, many specific imaging techniques have been developed which differ in the wavelength of the sound, its polarisation and the instrumentation used. In this interdisciplinary book, leading ...

  • 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 ...

  • The Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE)

    The Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE) is a small, free-flying satellite carrying four scientific instruments to measure the solar radiation incident at the top of the Earth’s atmosphere. SORCE was successfully launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center on 25 January 2003. As one element of NASA’s Earth Science Enterprise, the SORCE ...

  • Water and the Search for Life on Mars

    Mars has long been believed to have been cold, dead and dry for aeons, but there is now striking new proof that not only was Mars a relatively warm and wet place in geologically recent times, but that even today there are vast reserves of water frozen beneath the planet’s surface. As well as casting fascinating new insights into Mars’ past, this ...

  • Treatise on Geochemistry

    The application of chemistry to the study of the Earth has ancient roots. In the 20th century the subject became the organized and identifiable discipline called geochemistry, largely due to the pioneering work of F.W. Clarke, V.M. Goldschmidt, partly because of innovations in instrumentation, sampling techniques, and methodology, partly because ...
