  • Tsunamisby Linda Maria Koldau

    C.H. Beck 2013; US$ 8.41

    Tsunamis haben nicht nur zu Weihnachten 2004 Hunderttausenden Menschen das Leben gekostet. Linda Maria Koldau erklärt, wie immer wieder Riesenwellen durch unterseeische Erdbeben und Hangrutschungen, Vulkanausbrüche und Meteoriteneinschläge entstehen, und schildert spannend die größten Tsunamis der Weltgeschichte: von der Storegga-Rutschung vor 8000... more...

  • Tsunamiby Edward Bryant

    Springer 2014; US$ 179.00

    It is a comprehensive and well illustrated textbook on all aspects of tsunami. I don't think there is any other book on the topic published. As one bookseller said after the Indian Ocean tsunami event, 'I would have just filled my front window with copies and they would have walked out the store.' This statement was just as relevant after... more...

  • 21 Yaks and a Speedoby Lewis Pugh

    Jonathan Ball Publishers 2013; US$ 17.50

    Lewis Pugh knows oceans. He was the first to complete a long distance swim in every ocean of the world, and has pioneered more swims around famous landmarks than any other person in history. He swam across the icy waters of the North Pole to highlight the melting of the Arctic sea ice, and across a glacial lake on Mt Everest to draw attention to... more...

  • Tsunamiby Richard Hamblyn

    Reaktion Books 2014; US$ 24.95

    When the earthquake that struck the Solomon Islands in 2013 produced tsunami waves that damaged the country?s infrastructure, it was one in a recent string of reminders of the devastating effects these ferocious waves can have. From the 2011 tsunami in Japan to the giant waves that killed people near the Indian Ocean in 2004, these destructive events... more...

  • Tsunamisby Kenji Satake

    Springer 2006; US$ 239.00

  • Breaking Ocean Wavesby Eugene A. Sharkov

    Springer 2007; US$ 219.00

    Represents a comprehensive description of the physical findings of an investigation into the spatio-temporal characteristics of the gravity of breaking waves and the foam activity in open sea by methods and instruments of optical and microwave remote sensing. more...

  • Tsunamiby Edward Bryant

    Springer 2008; US$ 269.00

    In the last three years, there have been three large tsunamis in the Indian Ocean, most notably the notorious one which struck on 26 December 2004 and killed more than 238,000 people.

  • Extreme Ocean Wavesby Efim N. Pelinovsky; C. Kharif

    Springer 2008; US$ 159.00

    Extreme, freak or rogue waves are produced by a number of physical mechanisms that focus the water-wave energy into a small area, due to wave instability, chaotic behaviour, dispersion (frequency modulation), refraction (presence of variable currents or bottom topography), soliton interactions, etc. During the past thirty years a number of physical... more...
