    This is the biography of Ruby Payne-Scott (1912 to 1981). As the first female radio astronomer (and one of the first people in the world to consider radio astronomy), she made classic contributions to solar radio physics. She also played a major role in the design of the Australian government's Council for Scientific and Industrial Research radars,... more...

  • Global Geodetic Observing Systemby Hans-Peter Plag; Michael Pearlman

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 206.85

    With the provision of accurate reference frames and observations of changes in Earth's shape, gravity field and rotation, modern geodesy takes a fundamental role for improved understanding of geodynamics, geohazards, the global water cycle, global change, atmosphere and ocean dynamics, and it supports many societal applications that depend on accurate... more...

  • Between Theory and Observationsby Steven Wepster

    Springer New York 2009; US$ 130.64

    In the 18th century, purely scientific interests as well as the practical necessities of navigation motivated the development of new theories and techniques to accurately describe celestial and lunar motion. "Between Theory and Observations" presents a detailed and accurate account, not to be found elsewhere in the literature, of Tobias Mayer's... more...

  • Cosmochemistryby Harry Y. Jr McSween; Gary R. Huss

    Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 72.00 US$ 59.04

  • An Introduction to Gravity Currents and Intrusionsby Marius Ungarish

    CRC Press 2009; US$ 109.95

    Gravity currents and intrusions are the ubiquitous phenomena where a fluid of one density flows horizontally into a fluid of a different density. For researchers and engineers, the ability to understand and predict these flow fields is essential in wide-ranging applications including those involved with atmospheric and ocean dynamics, the propagation... more...

  • ICAME 2005by P.-E. Lippens; J.-C. Jumas; J.-M.R. Génin

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 227.54

    Since January 2004, Mossbauer spectrometers [1] have been making measurements on Mars as a component of the Athena instrument suite because the technique can "yield information about early Martian environmental conditions" and can help in "identifying minerals formed in hot, watery environments that could preserve fossil evidence of Martian life" (from... more...

  • International geophysics seriesby John Marshall; R. Alan Plumb

    Elsevier Science 1967; US$ 79.95

    For advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in atmospheric, oceanic, and climate science, Atmosphere, Ocean and Climate Dynamics is an introductory textbook on the circulations of the atmosphere and ocean and their interaction, with an emphasis on global scales. It will give students a good grasp of what the atmosphere and oceans look... more...

  • Space Manifold Dynamicsby Ettore Perozzi; Sylvio Ferraz-Mello

    Springer New York 2010; US$ 156.62
