The Ocean Carbon Cycle and Climate

by Springer

The great questions that challenge our understanding of the global carbon cycle are: What are the basic oceanic mechanisms that control the oceanic carbon reservoirs and the partitioning of carbon between the ocean and the atmosphere? How do these mechanisms depend on the state of the climate system and how does the carbon cycle feed back to the ...;

Air-Sea Exchange: Physics, Chemistry and Dynamics

by Springer

This book is the first to introduce a multi-disciplinary approach to extending our understanding of air-sea interaction, where the atmospheric boundary layer, ocean mixed layer dynamics, and surface are collectively treated with their physical, chemical and biological components. The theme behind the book is 'high resolution', where the ...;

An Introduction to Soil Dynamics

by Springer

This book presents the basic principles of soil dynamics, and a variety of solutions of practical interest for geotechnical engineering, geophysics and earthquake engineering. Emphasis is on analytical solutions, often including the full derivation of the solution, and giving the main parts of computer programs that can be used to calculate ...;

The Changing Ocean: Its Effects on Climate and Living Resources

by Earthprint Ltd

The Ocean, like our planet as a whole, is undergoing perpetual change. Its variations affect the climate, therefore the life sheltered within it must also adapt to these changes. The physical laws that govern the movements of the ocean have been known since the nineteenth century, but progress in oceanography faced three difficulties. First, the ...;

Report 4150: Wave & Tidal

by Environmental Business International (EBI)

Report 4150: Wave & Tidal focuses on a new class of devices that generate power from ocean waves and tides and from the in-stream flow of rivers. Collectively, this emerging sub-segment of low-carbon and renewable power segment is referred to alternately as hydro-kinetic energy (reflecting the fact that power is generated with the kinetic ...;

Ocean Sciences Bridging the Millennia

by Earthprint Ltd

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 ...;

Kalo, Hildreth, Rieser, Christie, and Jacobson`s Coastal and Ocean Law, 3d

by Thomson Reuters (West)

Changes to the new Third Edition include: A new chapter devoted to current, important state coastal management issues; new materials on the impact of beach nourishment projects on public and private rights; the latest Supreme Court pronouncement on Wetlands-the Rapanos case-and expanded NEPA coverage; discussion on the 2006 revised consistency ...;

Challenges to Marine Ecosystems

by Springer

This volume presents a representative sample of contributions to the 41st European Marine Biology Symposium held in September 2005 in Cork, Ireland. The theme of the symposium was ‘Challenges to Marine Ecosystems’ and this was divided into four sub themes; Genetics, Marine Protected Areas, Global Climate Change and Marine Ecosystems, Sustainable ...;

Virginia Offshore Energy Development Law and Policy Review and Recommendations Report

by Environmental Law Institute (ELI)

Virginia is facing various forms of energy development activities offshore and in the territorial waters of the Commonwealth. These include possible proposals for wind and wave energy, liquefied natural gas transport, and natural gas drilling on the outer continental shelf, among others. State laws and policies must deal with these activities and ...;

High Resolution Morphodynamics and Sedimentary Evolution of Estuaries

by Springer

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 Assessment of Cavet Technologies` LumiSmart

by Kachan & Co.

Tiny Toronto lighting vendor Cavet Technologies thinks it's got a game changer. The company has introduced a lighting controller it claims can lower the power consumption of a whole fluorescent light circuit by 35%+ with a single plug in box. If true, it could represent a new type of lighting controller, easier to install and less expensive. Which ...;

Molecular Approaches to the Study of the Ocean

by Springer

Marine biological science is now studied at the molecular level and although research scientists depend on information gained using molecular techniques, there is no book explaining the philosophy of this approach. Molecular Approaches to the Study of the Ocean introduces the reasons why molecular technology is such a powerful tool in the ...;

Marine Science Frontiers for Europe

by Springer

Europe is a continent with a high coast-to-surface ratio, and European seas encompass a broad range of settings and regimes. The sustainable development of living and non-living marine resources, the protection of the marine environment and the provision of marine-based services are critical to economic prosperity and to the quality of life of ...;
