The range of complexity that engulfs our ...

  • Monitoring the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban-Treaty: Surface Waves

    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 ...

  • Whistler Phenomena

    In this volume, the authors present theoretical explanations for a few basic problems connected with the propagation of extra wide band, short impulses in linear media, and with the propagation of whistlers and megawhistlers in plasmas. In addition, the book provides an overview of ground and space based measurements, digital processing and ...

  • Oceanography

    In the 6th edition of Landolt-Börnstein, the field of oceanography was incorporated into the volume on 'Astronomy and Geophysics' (1952) and covered 116 pages. Since that time, the tremendous increase of knowledge and the growing significance of oceanography called for a new compilation which appears as Volume V/3 of the New Series. The topics ...

  • Neural Networks and Sea Time Series

    Increasingly, neural networks are used and implemented in a wide range of fields and have become useful tools in probabilistic analysis and prediction theory. This book—unique in the literature—studies the application of neural networks to the analysis of time series of sea data, namely significant wave heights and sea levels. The particular ...

  • Satellite Altimetry for Geodesy, Geophysics and Oceanography

    This volume covers a broad range of altimetry applications, including marine gravity and geoid, sea level change, ocean tide modeling, ocean circulations, marine plate tectonics, mesoscale eddies and bathymetry predictions. Virtually all disciplines of earth sciences are touched upon through the technique of satellite altimetry. Readers will find ...

  • Seismic Waves in Laterally Inhomogeneous Media

    This special issue contains contributions presented at the international workshop Seismic Waves in Laterally Inhomogeneous Media V, which was held at the Castle of Zahrádky, Czech Republic, June 5 - 9, 2000. The workshop, which was attended by about 60 seismologists from 16 countries, was devoted mainly to the current state of theoretical and ...

  • Monitoring the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty: Seismic Event Discrimination and Identification

    In 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 ...

  • Dynamic Planet

    Part I Joint IAG/IAPSO Papers.- Part II Frontiers in the analysis of space geodetic measurements.- Part III Gravity field determination from a synthesis of terrestrial, satellite, airborne and altimetry measurements.- Part IV Earth Processes: geodynamics, tides, crustal deformation and temporal gravity changes.- Part V Advances in the realization ...

  • Topics in Computational Wave Propagation

    These ten detailed and authoritative survey articles on numerical methods for direct and inverse wave propagation problems are written by leading experts. Researchers and practitioners in computational wave propagation, from postgraduate level onwards, will find the breadth and depth of coverage of recent developments a valuable resource. The ...

  • Q of the Earth: Global, Regional, and Laboratory Studies

    Variations in seismic Q are sensitive to a much greater extent than are seismic velocity variations on factors such as temperature, fluid content, and the movement of solid state defects in the earth. For that reason an understanding of Q and its variation with position in the earth and with time should provide information in earth's tectonic ...

  • Seismic Wave Propagation and Scattering in the Heterogenous Earth

    Seismic waves – generated both by natural earthquakes and by man-made sources – have produced an enormous amount of information about the Earth's interior. In classical seismology, the Earth is modeled as a sequence of uniform horizontal layers (or sperical shells) having different elastic properties and one determines these properties from travel ...

  • Tsunamis

    Twenty papers comprise a timely review of state-of-the-art tsunami research. Various approaches are taken to study tsunamis: field-surveys of recent tsunamis; analysis of tide-gauge records; numerical simulations of tsunami generation and propagation, tank experiments, and geological studies of tsunami deposits. The papers are also divided into ...

  • Transport at the Air-Sea Interface

    Predictions of our future climate vary greatly, with detailed forecasts still subject to debate. One key uncertainty is caused by the lack of our present knowledge of transport processes in the air-water interface, which poses the main transfer resistance between the oceans and atmosphere. Modeling and predictions of our global climate can only be ...

  • The Dynamics of Shoreline Wetlands and Sediments of Northern Lake Victoria

    This book presents the results of research conducted between 2000 and 2004 on Lake Victoria (East Africa). The research examined the spatial spread of shoreline wetlands and found their distribution to be strongly influenced by the action of wind and waves. Evidence also pointed to a strong influence of wind-induced waves and currents on ...

  • Tsunami and its Hazards in the Indian and Pacific Oceans

    Tsunamis like the Indian Ocean tsunami caused by the Sumatra-Andaman earthquake in 2004 or the Chilean earthquake in the Pacific Ocean in 1960 motivate international collaborations for the development of tsunami warning systems. Since 1960 the Tsunami Commission, established by the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics, has been holding a ...

  • Nondestructive and Automated Testing for Soil and Rock

  • Monitoring a Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty

    An international treaty banning the testing of any nuclear device in any environment - a comprehensive test ban treaty (CTBT) - has been on the political agenda for nearly 40 years. Objections to a CTBT have been political, technical, or a combination of both. However, the possibilities seem better after the end of the Cold War. In the ...
