  • Monitoring the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban-Treaty: Hydroacousticsby Catherine de Groot-Hedlin

    Birkhäuser Basel 2012; US$ 69.95

    In September 1996, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), prohibiting nuclear explosions worldwide, in all environments. The treaty calls for a global verification system, including a network of 321 monitoring stations distributed around the globe, a data communications network, an international... more...

  • Earthquake Processes: Physical Modelling, Numerical Simulation and Data Analysis Part IIby

    Birkhäuser Basel 2012; US$ 89.95

    In the last decade of the 20th century, there has been great progress in the physics of earthquake generation; that is, the introduction of laboratory-based fault constitutive laws as a basic equation governing earthquake rupture, quantitative description of tectonic loading driven by plate motion, and a microscopic approach to study fault zone processes.... more...

  • Earthquake Microzoningby

    Birkhäuser Basel 2012; US$ 89.99

    In many past and recent earthquakes it has been shown that the local conditions and, in particular, the local geology have a great influence on the observed seismic ground motion and, consequently, on the damage distribution in housing, industrial stock, and life-lines. Seismic microzoning is the usual procedure to have these local effects taken into... more...

  • Geodetic And Geophysical Effects Associated With Seismic And Volcanic Hazardsby

    Birkhäuser Basel 2012; US$ 89.99

    Although geodetic monitoring techniques have been widely used in areas of seismic or volcanic activity, the difficulty inherent to their discrete nature means that they must be deployed carefully to ensure the best possible detection or sensitivity of these points (see e. g. , BALDI and UNGUENDOLI, 1987; JOHNSON and WYATT, 1994; SEGALL and MATTHEWS,... more...

  • Die Stratosphäreby Karin Labitzke

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 49.99

    In diesem Buch wird einerseits die spannende Entdeckung der Stratosphäre selbst und verschiedener unerwarteter Phänomene in der Stratosphäre beschrieben: ein bemannter Ballonflug im Jahr 1901 bis in 11 km Höhe; eine Expedition zum Victoriasee im Jahr 1908; die Entdeckung der Ozonschicht um 1930, des "Berliner Phänomens" im Jahr 1952, des Einflusses... more...

  • Interpreting the Precautionary Principleby Timothy O'Riordan; James Cameron

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 53.95

    Viewed from the perspective of environmental management, this study describes the implications and applications of the precautionary principle - a theory of avoiding risk even when its likelihood seems remote. This principle has been employed in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the North Atlantic Convention, yet it is not... more...

  • Plasma Instabilities and Nonlinear Effectsby A. Hasegawa

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 149.00

    In recent years the significant progress in satellite-based observations of plasma states and associated electromagnetic phenomena in space has resulted in the accumulation of much evidence of various plasma instabilities. Today plasma instabilities are believed to be responsible for electromagnetic radiation as well as for many of the macroscopic... more...

  • Seismicity of the European Areaby Vít Kárník

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

    The second part of the "Seismicity of the European Area" contains further results of the survey of European seismicity, performed during the period 1959 -1967. It was intended to publish the second part with the shortest possible delay. The first part appeared in 1968 when the manuscript of the second part was handed over to the publisher. Unfortunately,... more...
