    This part of ISO 13628 provides guidelines for the design, analysis, manufacture, testing, installation and operation of flexible pipes and flexible pipe systems for onshore, subsea and marine applications. This part of ISO 13628 supplements ISO 13628-2 and ISO 13628-10, which specify minimum requirements for the design, material selection, ...

  • Biodiversity in Enclosed Seas and Artificial Marine Habitats

    The main themes of the Symposium were biodiversity in enclosed and semi-enclosed seas and artificial habitats, and the restoration of degraded systems. These themes are highly relevant today both from a basic scientific point of view and from an applied approach. The papers dealing with the first theme represent current research and concerns about ...

  • Ocean Forecasting

    The book gives a first consistent overview of methods and applications of ocean forecasting around the world. This sector of marine science and technology is developing rapidly due to the increasing need for reliable, multidisciplinary information about the marine system, allowing the sustainable usage of coastal resources and the mitigation of ...

  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Mesoscale Processes

    Understanding, modeling and prediction of mesoscale processes in the atmosphere, ocean and environmental systems, have gained importance in the last decade or so. This is because of the availability of more sophisticated observational systems, provided by technological innovations and more realistic simulations using advanced dynamical models.This ...

  • Dynamic Modeling for Marine Conservation

    The effects of disturbed ecosystems, from devastating algal blooms to the loss of whale populations, have demonstrated the vulnerability of the oceans¿ biodiversity. Conservation of marine systems requires knowledge from many different fields in order to understand the complex interactions that threaten those systems. Dynamic Modeling for Marine ...

  • European Margin Sediment Dynamics

    The book provides acoustic images about sedimentary systems of the shelf edge, slope and deep-sea-floor. The knowledge gained can be used by both academia and hydrocarbon industry in a better understanding of continental margins and the processes shaping them. It is also of interest to colleagues in earth sciences involved in margin surveys for ...

  • Introduction to Remote Sensing, Second Edition

    Addressing the need for updated information in remote sensing, Introduction to Remote Sensing, Second Edition provides a full and authoritative introduction for scientists who need to know the scope, potential, and limitations in the field. The authors discuss the physical principles of common remote sensing systems and examine the processing, ...

  • The Indian Ocean Tsunami

    Drawing on information gathered from a study of the Indian Ocean Tsunami of December 26, 2004, this book explores the development of methodologies for predicting and preparing for tsunamis. The volume provides a state-of-the-art review of tsunami science and indicates thrust areas which have the potential to improve temporal and spatial resolution ...

  • Safety in sampling. Methodological notes (En)

    Series: FAO Fisheries Technical PapersThe presented methodological notes address the question of sampling accuracy when sample-based data collection operations are performed under operational constraints - a frequent concern of fishery administrations with limited budgets and human resources. The paper focuses on an 'a priori' determination of ...

  • API RP 2SM Standard for Exploration & Production

    The main purpose of this document is to provide guidelines on the use of synthetic fiber ropes for offshore mooring applications. The secondary purpose of this document is to highlight differences between synthetic rope and traditional steel mooring systems, and to provide practical guidance on how to handle these differences during system design ...

  • Polar Oceans from Space

    The book presents a wealth of material about the polar oceans, more specifically the ice-covered areas and peripheral seas. It provides a detailed history of the changing climate of the polar oceans as observed by satellite sensors in the last three decades. The satellite research data show spatial distributions of surface temperature, sea ice, ...

  • Sample-based fishery surveys. A technical handbook (En)

    Series: FAO Fisheries Technical PapersThe purpose of this handbook is to summarize experience gained over recent years in fishery statistical development by the Fishery Information, Data and Statistics Unit (FIDI) of FAO, and provide planners and users of fishery surveys with simple and step-by-step guidance for developing and implementing ...

  • Ecology of the Acanthocephala

    Acanthocephalans, or spiny-headed worms, are endoparasites found in almost all marine, freshwater and terrestrial systems. They infect a huge range of definitive and intermediate hosts, during their life cycles, including both vertebrates and arthropods. This volume examines the distribution and abundance of the Acanthocephala, and uses this ...
