    Springer 2006; US$ 159.00

    An academically focused collection of papers highlighting the successes and challenges of a move from disaster to risk management in responding to drought. The book passes on the experiences gained from Australia?s trail-blazing new policy, introduced in 1992. more...

  • Avalanche Dynamicsby Shiva P. Pudasaini; Kolumban Hutter

    Springer 2007; US$ 239.00

    With an emphasis on snow avalanches, this book sets out to provide a survey and discussion about the motion of avalanche-like flows from initiation to run out. It is intended for a readership of researchers, graduate students and practitioners with backgrounds in geology, civil and mechanical engineering, applied mathematics and continuum physics. more...

  • In the Path of an Avalancheby Vivien Bowers

    Greystone Books 2012; US$ 12.95

    On a clear, cold morning in January 1998, in the Selkirk Mountains of southeastern British Columbia, six experienced skiers were buried in a massive avalanche. They didn?t have a chance. A combination of factors — steep, open terrain; an unstable winter snow pack; poor weather conditions; and a trigger provided by a handful of backcountry skiers —... more...

  • Precipitationby Silas C. Michaelides

    Springer 2008; US$ 239.00

    The book is based on selected contributions presented at the (General) Session on the "Observation, Prediction and Verification of Precipitation" of the 2006 EGU General Assembly held in Vienna, Austria.

    Most of the papers in this book were presented at the workshop on "Deformation and Gravity Change: Indicators of Isostasy, Tectonics, Volcanism and Climate Change," which took place at the Casa de los Volcanes on Lanzarote, Spain, during March 1-4, 2005. It was jointly organized and supported by the International Association of Geodesy (IAG),... more...

  • Satellite Rainfall Applications for Surface Hydrologyby Mekonnen Gebremichael

    Springer 2009; US$ 209.00

    While there are a growing number of high-resolution space-based systems for measuring precipitation, instances of the use of these products for surface hydrology are rare. This book focuses on evaluating the potential, utility and application of high resolution satellite precipitation products in relation to surface hydrology. more...

  • Rainfall, Financial Development, and Remittances: Evidence from Sub-Saharan Africaby Rabah Arezki; Markus Bruckner

    International Monetary Fund 2011; US$ 9.00

    We use annual variation in rainfall to examine the effects that exogenous, transitory income shocks have on remittances in a panel of 42 Sub-Saharan African countries during the period 1960-2007. Our main finding is that these income shocks have a significant positive effect on remittances, but that the effect is significantly decreasing in the share... more...
