Water Debris Containment Books

  • Flood Risk

    Flood Risk: Planning, Design and Management of Flood Defence Infrastructure is the definitive practical handbook on design and maintenance of flood defences, providing a coherent and focused reference for best practice. This book is the first port of call for practising engineers working in the areas of flood risk management and drainage and ...

  • Disposal of Oil and Debris Resulting from a Spill Cleanup Operation

    This publication, Disposal of Oil and Debris Resulting from a Spill Cleanup Operation, contained papers presented at the Symposium on Disposal of Oil and Related Materials and Debris Resulting from a Spill Cleanup Operation which was held in Denver, Colorado, 6—7 November 1978. The symposium was sponsored by Committee F20 on Spill Control ...

  • Leonid Storm Research

    This book will appeal to all researchers that have an interest in the current Leonid showers. It contains over forty research papers that present some of the first observational results of the November 1999 Leonid meteor storm, the first storm observed by modern observing techniques. The book is a first glimpse of the large amount of ...

  • Migrations and Dispersal of Marine Organisms

    This book represents the Proceedings of the 37th European Marine Biology Symposium, held in Reykjavík, Iceland, 5-9 August 2002. The main themes of the symposium were Migrations and Dispersal of Marine Organisms. These themes are highly relevant today. There is widespread man-aided dispersal (e.g. by ballast water) of marine plants and animals, ...

  • Submarine Mass Movements and Their Consequences

    This book provides a world-wide perspective of submarine mass movements and their consequences. This has been made possible by assembling excellent contributions from active researchers, groups, or institutions, thus providing full coverage of the many scientific and engineering aspects of this type of marine and coastal geo-hazard. It covers ...

  • Solid-Fluid Mixtures of Frictional Materials in Geophysical and Geotechnical Context

    This book puts the theory for a mixture of hypoplastic constituents on a rigorous basis using the thermodynamic analysis of Müller and Liu. The results which are specialised to frictional solid-fluid mixtures can be used by geophysicists and geotechnical engineers to refine their existing models for debris flows. This book addresses a continuum ...

  • Deep-Sea Food Chains and the Global Carbon Cycle

    Carbon dioxide and other 'greenhouse' gases are increasing in the atmosphere due to the burning of fossil fuels, the destruction of rain forests, etc., leading to predictions of a gradual global warming which will perturb the global biosphere. An important process which counters this trend toward potential climate change is the removal of ...
