Chemistry of Marine Water and Sediments

by Springer

The book deals with the processes in marine environment with particular emphasis on the interface processes (sediments- water and atmosphere-water) regarding organic matter and energy fluxes, carbon dioxide intake and transformation. Particular analytical methodologies concerning biosensors for analysis in situ are discussed.;

Radio Wave Propagation

by Springer

This work treats the essential elements of radio wave propagation without requiring recourse to advanced electromagnetic concepts and equations; however it provides sufficient detail to allow those concerned with wireless systems to acquire quickly a practical working knowledge of the important concepts. The treatment commences with an analysis of ...;

History of Shock Waves, Explosions and Impact

by Springer

This unique and encyclopedic reference work charts the evolution of the physics of shock waves and detonations from the earliest investigations into percussion and impact phenomena right up to the most recent groundbreaking research in the field. The history of this long and complex process is first reviewed in a general survey that encompasses ...;

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 ...;

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 ...;

Oceanic Migration

by Springer

Oceanic Migration studies the prehistoric peopling of the Pacific. It uses science and mathematics to expand the research base of Pacific prehistory and casts new light on this final human expansion. It explores the fundamental roles of oceanography and of global climate change in determining the paths, sequence, timing and range of Spice ...;

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 ...;

Weakly Nonlocal Solitary Waves and Beyond-all-Orders Asymptotics

by Springer

Weakly Nonlocal Solitary Waves and Beyond-All-Orders Asymptotics: Generalized Solitons and Hyperasymptotic Perturbation Theory represents the first thorough examination of weakly nonlocal solitary waves, which are just as important in applications as their classical counterparts. The book describes a class of waves which radiate away from ...;

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 ...;

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 ...;

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 ...;

Ocean Wave Energy

by Springer

The authors of this reference provide an updated and global view on ocean wave energy conversion for wave energy developers as well as for students and professors. The book is orientated to the practical solutions that this new industry has found so far and the problems that any device needs to face. It describes the actual principles applied to ...;

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 ...;

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 ...;

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 ...;

Marine Surface Films

by Springer

Since the late 1960s, various groups have investigated the influence of marine surface films on mechanisms dominating energy and mass transfer across the ocean/atmosphere interface. However, a compendium summarizing the state-of-the-art research in this field is still missing. The book fills this gap and transfers the accumulated knowledge to the ...;

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 ...;

Monitoring the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty: Regional Wave Propagation and Crustal Structure

by Springer

On September 1996, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), prohibiting nuclear explosions worldwide, in all environments. The treaty calls for a global verification system, including a network of 321 monitoring stations distributed around the globe, a data communications network, an ...;
