  • Theoretical and Numerical Unsaturated Soil Mechanics

    These proceedings are a continuation of the series of International Conferences in Germany entitled 'Mechanics of Unsaturated Soils.' The primary objective is to discuss and understand unsaturated soil behaviour such that engineered activities are made better with times in terms of judgement and quality. We all realise by now that in addition to ...

  • Ecology of Harmful Algae

    Harmful algal blooms are one of the consequences of the human impact on aquatic ecosystems, particularly the process of eutrophication. They can cause a variety of deleterious effects, including the poisoning of fish and shellfish, habitat disruptions for many organisms, water discolouration, beach fouling, and even toxic effects for humans.This ...

  • Dictionary of Gems and Gemology

    The rapid growth of gemological sciences and mineralogy requires a comprehensive dictionary for gemologists, mineralogists, geologists, jewel dealers, industry, and hobbyists.
