    Field Detection Technologies for Explosives

    Explosives are historically the weapons that have been most frequently used against civilians by terrorist organisations. In the past few years, the use of explosives by terrorist groups has cost the lives of more people than the combination of all other attacks, including the use of weapons of mass destruction (chemical, biological and nuclear ...

  • Combined Devices for Humanitarian Demining and Explosive Detection - Proceedings of a Technical Meeting held in Padova, 13–17 November 2006

    The IAEA’s programme on Advanced Nuclear Techniques for Detection of Landmines and Bulk Explosive Material helps Member States to apply and develop nuclear techniques for this purpose. This publication is the proceedings of a technical meeting organized to evaluate combinations of technologies most appropriate for the detection of land mines and ...

  • Access Security Screening: Challenges and Solutions

    11 papers cover weapon detection systems, explosive detection systems, and imaging X-ray ...

  • Landslides from Massive Rock Slope Failure

    This unique volume contains papers based on presentations and discussions at the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Massive Rock Slope Failure; New Models for Hazard Assessment held in Celano, Italy in June 2002. 32 papers by 64 engineers, geologists, and geomorphologists from 16 countries address the issue of landslides from massive rock slope ...

  • Monitoring the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty: Source Processes and Explosion Yield Estimation

    This volume presents summaries of recent research results on the related subjects of source processes and explosion yield estimation, which are important elements of any treaty verification system. The term Source Processes, in the context of nuclear test monitoring, refers to a wide range of research topics. In a narrow definition, it describes ...

  • Volcanism

    Volcanic eruptions are the clear and dramatic expression of dynamic processes going on in planet Earth. The author, one of the most profound specialists in the field of volcanology, explains in a concise and easy to understand manner the basics and most recent findings in the field of volcanology. Based on plate tectonics and illustrated with more ...

  • Detection of Explosives and Landmines Methods and Field Experiences

    The problem of reliably detecting explosives, whether in buried landmines or hidden in cars, aircraft cargo, baggage, or carried by suicide bombers, has not yet been solved. Explosive device detection technology can make a major contribution to collective, family and individual security. This book reviews the state of the art in a wide range of ...

  • Shock, Impact and Explosion

    The dynamics of shock, impact and explosions are an important consideration in the design of structures. This book provides a detailed and illustrated study of structural dynamics of almost all types of shocks, impacts and explosions.After a comprehensive survey of accidents and explosions, the author covers all areas of basic structural dynamics ...

  • Nuclear Tests

    The first Soviet atomic bomb test, which took place at Semipalatinsk in Kazakhstan on 29 August 1949, was the most egregious test by far in terms of collective exposures to local fallout. This volume is devoted to this first, and to further nuclear weapon test explosions in the Semipalatinsk/Altai region. It analyses the environmental and human ...

  • Atmospheric Nuclear Tests

    Radionuclides produced by past nuclear weapon test explosions comprise the largest source of anthropogenic radioactivity released into the earth's atmosphere to date. This volume presents data and models about the fate of the released radionuclides and their possible effects on human health. It is divided into the following three parts: - Source ...

  • Systems Biology

    Systems biology is defined for the purpose of this study as the understanding of biological network behaviors, and in particular their dynamic aspects, which requires the utilization of mathematical modeling tightly linked to experiment. This involves a variety of approaches, such as the identification and validation of networks, the creation of ...

  • Electronic Noses and Sensors for the Detection of Explosives

    This book examines both the potential application of electronic nose technology, and the current state of development of chemical sensors for the detection of vapours from explosives, such as those used in landmines. The two fields have developed, somewhat in parallel, over the past decade and so one of the purposes of this workshop, on which the ...

  • Vapour and Trace Detection of Explosives for Anti-Terrorism Purposes

    Up to now so called ‘sniffer’ dogs are the most successful and widespread systems for the explosives detection at airports and in public areas. Dogs are able to detect explosives under various conditions. On the other hand dogs are living beings and their behavior and skills are influenced by numerous parameters (e.g. age, sex, trainer, daily ...

  • Nuclear Test Ban

    The book gives a broad presentation in laymen's language of the creation and the implementation of the treaty prohibiting nuclear test explosions (Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty: CTBT), one of the key guarantors of nuclear non-proliferation. The writers, who personally guided this work for more than 25 years, give a unique insight into the ...

  • Synoptic–Dynamic Meteorology and Weather Analysis and Forecasting: A Tribute to Fred Sanders

    Key scientific research by authors including Kerry Emanuel, Robert Burpee, Edwin Kessler, and Louis Uccellini illustrates the evolution of the fields of synoptic meteorology, weather analysis, forecasting, and climatology. It is published in honor of the late Fred Sanders, emeritus professor of meteorology at MIT, whose influence was vast: he ...
