  • Black Holes: The Reith Lecturesby Stephen Hawking

    Transworld 2016; US$ 5.63

    ?It is said that fact is sometimes stranger than fiction, and nowhere is that more true than in the case of black holes. Black holes are stranger than anything dreamed up by science fiction writers.? In 2016 Professor Stephen Hawking delivered the BBC Reith Lectures on a subject that has fascinated him for decades ? black holes. In these flagship... more...

  • Mathematical Methods for Geophysics and Space Physicsby William I. Newman

    Princeton University Press 2016; US$ 75.00

    Graduate students in the natural sciences?including not only geophysics and space physics but also atmospheric and planetary physics, ocean sciences, and astronomy?need a broad-based mathematical toolbox to facilitate their research. In addition, they need to survey a wider array of mathematical methods that, while outside their particular areas of... more...

  • Science and Technology Advice for Congressby M. Granger Morgan; Jon M. Peha

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 46.95

    The elimination of the Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) in 1995 came during a storm of budget cutting and partisan conflict. Operationally, it left Congress without an institutional arrangement to bring expert scientific and technological advice into the process of legislative decisionmaking. This deficiency has become increasingly critical, as... more...

  • Passive Imaging with Ambient Noiseby Josselin Garnier; George Papanicolaou

    Cambridge University Press 2016; US$ 120.00

    This multidisciplinary book provides a systematic introduction to the analysis of passive sensor array imaging using ambient noise sources. more...

  • Microwave Propagation and Remote Sensingby Pranab Kumar Karmakar

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 165.95

    Because prevailing atmospheric/troposcopic conditions greatly influence radio wave propagation above 10 GHz, the unguided propagation of microwaves in the neutral atmosphere can directly impact many vital applications in science and engineering. These include transmission of intelligence, and radar and radiometric applications used to probe the atmosphere,... more...

  • Understanding Earth Observationby Domenico Solimini

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 229.00

    This volume addresses the physical foundation of remote sensing. The basic grounds are presented in close association with the kinds of environmental targets to monitor and with the observing techniques. The book aims at plugging the quite large gap between the thorough and quantitative description of electromagnetic waves interacting with the Earth's... more...

  • Ecological Risk Assessment, Second Editionby Glenn W. Suter II

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 139.95

    The definitive reference in its field, Ecological Risk Assessment, Second Edition details the latest advances in science and practice. In the fourteen years since the publication of the best-selling first edition, ecological risk assessment (ERA) has moved from the margins into the spotlight. It is now commonly applied to the regulation of chemicals,... more...

  • Ecological Modeling in Risk Assessmentby Robert A. Pastorok; Steven M. Bartell; Scott Ferson; Lev R. Ginzburg

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 172.95

    Toxic chemicals can exert effects on all levels of the biological hierarchy, from cells to organs to organisms to populations to entire ecosystems. However, most risk assessment models express their results in terms of effects on individual organisms, without corresponding information on how populations, groups of species, or whole ecosystems may respond... more...

  • Essentials of Toxic Chemical Riskby Stephen Penningroth

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 121.95

    A contribution to the ongoing debate about how to manage the growing risks of anthropogenic chemicals in the environment, Essentials of Toxic Chemical Risk weaves together coverage of the science that underlies toxic chemical risk assessment, the physiological and molecular bases of chemical toxicity, the process of assessing toxic chemical risk... more...

  • Mixture Toxicityby Cornelis A. M. van Gestel; Martijs Jonker; Jan E. Kammenga; Ryszard Laskowski; Claus Svendsen

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 144.95

    In the last decade and a half, great progress has been made in the development of concepts and models for mixture toxicity, both in human and environmental toxicology. However, due to their different protection goals, developments have often progressed in parallel but with little integration. Arguably the first book to clearly link ecotoxicology and... more...
