  • Manganese Removal from Groundwaterby J.H. Bruins

    CRC Press 2017; US$ 61.95

    In The Netherlands, Belgium and other European countries, manganese is removed by conventional groundwater treatment with aeration and rapid (sand) filtration. Such a treatment process is easy to operate, cost effective and sustainable, because it does not make use of strong oxidants such as O 3 , Cl 2 , ClO 2 and KMnO 4 with the associated risk... more...

  • Flood Hazard Mapping: Uncertainty and its Value in the Decision-making Processby Micah Mukungu Mukolwe

    CRC Press 2017; US$ 59.95

    Computers are increasingly used in the simulation of natural phenomena such as floods. However, these simulations are based on numerical approximations of equations formalizing our conceptual understanding of flood flows. Thus, model results are intrinsically subject to uncertainty and the use of probabilistic approaches seems more appropriate. Uncertain,... more...

  • Visually Observing Cometsby David A. J. Seargent

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 32.29

    In these days of computers and CCD cameras, visual comet observers can still contribute scientifically useful data with the help of this handy reference for use in the field. Comets are one of the principal areas for productive pro-amateur collaboration in astronomy, but finding comets requires a different approach than the observing of... more...

  • The Control Theory and Application for Well Pattern Optimization of Heterogeneous Sandstone Reservoirsby Dehua Liu; Jing Sun

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2017; US$ 139.97

    The book is focused primarily on characteristics and determinative methods of reservoir orientation, the concept of vector well pattern and corresponding realistic techniques of well pattern deployment, well pattern control principles, Optimum design of well pattern based on the reservoir direction characteristics, and the schemes of well spacing... more...

  • Convection in Porous Mediaby Donald A. Nield; Adrian Bejan

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 289.65

    In its expanded 4th edition, this book offers a user-friendly introduction to convection in porous media, with some 2,000 new references and coverage of current research in nanofluids, cellular porous materials, strong heterogeneity, pulsating flow and more more...

  • Global Changes and Natural Disaster Management: Geo-information Technologiesby Saied Pirasteh; Jonathan Li

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 150.74

    This book presents ongoing research and ideas related to earth observations and global change, natural hazards and disaster management studies, with respect to geospatial information technology, remote sensing, and global navigation satellite systems. Readers will discover uses of advanced geospatial tools, spatiotemporal models, and earth observation... more...

  • Silica Storiesby Christina De La Rocha; Daniel J. Conley

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 32.29

    Do you know silica, the tetrahedra of silicon and oxygen constituting the crystals of New Agers and the desiccant in a box of new shoes?  It's no mere mundane mineral. As chemically reacting silicate rocks, silica set off the chain of events known as the origin of life. As biomineralized opal, it is the cell wall, skeleton, spicules, and scales... more...

  • Writing for Earth Scientistsby Donovan

    Wiley 2017; US$ 49.50 US$ 42.90

    The time has come. You are an Earth scientist. You’ve spent weeks, months, years working on this project – now is the time to pull it together for publication. You might be writing an undergraduate or graduate thesis, a research paper for a leading journal, a note for the newsletter of the local amateur scientific society, a book review... more...

  • Practical Finite Element Modeling in Earth Science using Matlabby Guy Simpson

    Wiley 2017; US$ 123.95 US$ 107.42

    Mathematical models have become a crucial way for the Earth scientist to understand and predict how our planet functions and evolves through time and space. The finite element method (FEM) is a remarkably flexible and powerful tool with enormous potential in the Earth Sciences. This pragmatic guide explores how a variety of different Earth science... more...
