The theme behind the book is 'high resolution', where the ...

  • Molecular Approaches to the Study of the Ocean

    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 ...

  • High Resolution Morphodynamics and Sedimentary Evolution of Estuaries

    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

    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 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 ...

  • An Introduction to Soil Dynamics

    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

    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 ...

  • The Ocean Carbon Cycle and Climate

    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 ...

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

    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 ...

  • Ocean Wave Energy

    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 ...

  • Chemistry of Marine Water and Sediments

    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 ...

  • Marine Science Frontiers for Europe

    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 ...

  • Report 4150: Wave & Tidal

    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 ...

  • Tsunamis and Hurricanes

    Tsunamis and hurricanes have had a devastating impact on the population living near the coast during the year 2005. The calculation of the power and intensity of tsunamis and hurricanes are of great importance not only for engineers and meteorologists but also for governments and insurance companies. This book presents new research on the ...

  • Challenges to Marine Ecosystems

    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 ...

  • Microearthquake Seismology and Seismotectonics of South Asia

    This volume is the outcome of about 30 years of research in the field of earthquake seismology in various parts of South Asia. It comprehensively deals with plate tectonics and seismic waves in general and earthquake monitoring by permanent and temporary networks for active fault mapping, aftershock, swarm and induced seismicity investigations in ...

  • Tsunami Science Four Years After the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami

    The tragedy of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami has led to a rapid expansion in science directed at understanding tsunami and mitigating their hazard.
