  • Integrated High Resolution Imaging Radar and Decision Support System for the rehabilitation of WATER PIPElines

    Many EU cities are experiencing increasing problems with their water pipeline infrastructure. The cost of replacing these old, worn-out systems, if left to deteriorate beyond repair, is astronomical and clearly beyond the resources of many communities. Replacement, however, is not the only choice as many of these systems can be rehabilitated at 30 ...

  • Explaining the Earth

    The Earth is the only planet in the Solar System that has produced life - thanks to its size and its ideal position - and permits the evolution of increasingly complex species, of which human beings are the most recent outcome. The incredible expansion of the human population with all its activities over the course of the last century, however, ...

  • Poromechanics II: Proceedings of the Second Biot Conference on Poromechanics, Grenoble, France, 26-28 August 2002

    These proceedings deal with the fundamentals and applications of poromechanics to geomechanics, material sciences, geophysics, acoustics and biomechanics. They discuss the state of the art in such topics as constitutive modelling and upscaling ...

  • Geophysical & Astrophysical Convection

    Geophysical and Astrophysical Convection collects important papers from an international group of the world´s foremost researchers in geophysical and astrophysical convection to present a concise overview of recent thinking in the field. Topics include: Atmospheric convection, solar and stellar convection, unsteady non-penetrative thermal ...

  • Gravity, Geoid and Geodynamics 2000

    This symposium continued the tradition of mid-term meetings held between the joint symposia of International Geoid and Gravity Commissions. This time, geodynamics was chosen as the third topic to accompany the traditional topics of gravity and geoid. The symposium thus aimed at bringing together geodesists and geophysicists working in the general ...

  • Helioseismic Diagnostics of Solar Convection and Activity

    This book focuses on the recent advances in our understanding of solar convection and activity, and on new methods and results of helioseismic diagnostics of the internal structures and dynamics of solar convection and active regions. The methods of local helioseismology (time-distance tomography, ring-diagram analysis, acoustic imaging, and ...

  • When Continents Collide

    The few coesite-bearing outcrops have conventionally been considered as anomalies but the number of orogenic belts that contain diamond, coesite or other indications of metamorphic pressures >2Gpa has increased to more than 15. This indicates that subduction of continental fragments to depths of 100-150 km may have played a significant ...

  • Geophysics of the Canary Islands

    This book contains the results of a 9 year (1995-2004) investigation of the Canary Islands Exclusive Economic Zone, using state of the art technology. The main result areas are:A multibeam survey demonstrating the magnitude of catastrophic failures of the Canary IslandsA comparison of the morphology of the Canary Islands with HawaiiThe ...

  • Angular Momentum in Geophysical Turbulence

    Turbulence theory is one of the most intriguing parts of fluid mechanics and many outstanding scientists have tried to apply their knowledge to the development of the theory and to offer useful recommendations for the solution of some practical problems. In this monograph the author attempts to integrate many specific approaches into the unified ...

  • Basement Tectonics 11 - Europe and Other Regions

    The proceedings of the Eleventh International Basement Tectonics Conference is part of a major series of publications dealing with intraplate tectonics. The Eleventh Conference, held in Potsdam, Germany, presents aspects of the basement tectonics of Eastern and Western Europe; the first time they have been assembled in one meeting. ...

  • The Sun´s Surface and Subsurface

    Composed of a set of lectures and tutorial reviews, this book stems from a summer school devoted to the gravitational aspects of the sun and their geophysical consequences. Contribitions elaborate on the gravitational distortions of the sun which can be used to gain some knowledge of the sun's interior and surface phenomena but which also ...

  • Transport and Mixing in Geophysical Flows

    This volume collects a number of theoretical and experimental lectures on various aspects of transport and mixing of active and passive particles in geophysical flows. Transports in fluids can be approached from two complementary perspectives: in the Eulerian view of mixing, the focus is on the concentration field - advection stetches and folds ...

  • Vistas for Geodesy in the New Millennium

    This volume contains 102 papers from the IAG Scientific Assembly, held on the premises of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest from 2nd to 7th September, 2001. These assemblies are designed to give an integrated view of geodetic activities to a broad spectrum of researchers and practitioners in geodesy and geophysics. At this meeting, ...

  • Deep Electromagnetic Exploration

    Electromagnetic waves and their role in probing the earth are important for the exploration of the earth's deep crust. This book is not only for scientists in geophysics a useful source of information, but also for professionals in oil and gas exploration, geophysicists and engineers ...

  • Theory and Applications of Nonviscous Fluid Flows

    The purpose of this book is to present a broad panorama of model problems encountered in nonviscous Newtonian fluid flows. This is achieved by investigating the significant features of the solutions of the corresponding equations using the method of asymptotic analysis. The book thereby fills a long-standing gap in the literature by providing ...

  • Polarization Optics of Random Media

    Polarization methods for the study of the light scattering properties of various disperse media have hitherto only been reviewed in specialist journals relating to the fields of geophysics, astrophysics and optics. The only texts in this field are devoted to specific topics and do not cover the subject as a whole. In this book the author presents ...

  • The Illustrated History of Natural Disasters

    The book is a richly illustrated, pictorial album. The content and arrangement of the book is based on a collection of original rare engravings belonging to the private collection of Jan Kozák. The individual full-page reproductions give historical views on natural disasters such as: earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, avalanches, ...

  • From Dust to Terrestrial Planets

    This volume gives a comprehensive and integrated overview of current knowledge and understanding of the processes occurring during the first 100 million years of the solar system, when the terrestrial planets formed. It is the result of a workshop at ISSI, where planetary scientists, astrophysicists, and cosmochemists exchanged their data, ...

  • Observing our Changing Earth

    This volume contains a selection of 99 papers from the International Association of Geodesy (IAG) quadrennial General Assembly, held in Perugia, Italy, from July 2 to 13, 2007, in conjunction with the XXIV General Assembly of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG). There were 225 oral and 474 poster presentations made at the five ...
