  • Flow and Heat Transfer in Geothermal Systemsby Aniko Toth; Elemer Bobok

    Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 119.95

    Flow and Heat Transfer in Geothermal Systems: Basic Equations for Description and Modelling Geothermal Phenomena and Technologies is the ideal reference for research in geothermal systems and alternative energy sources. Written for a wide variety of users, including geologists, geophysicists, hydro-geologists, and engineers, it offers a practical... more...

  • Surface Chemistry and Geochemistry of Hydraulic Fracturingby K. S. Birdi

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 189.95

    Unique in focus, Surface Chemistry and Geochemistry of Hydraulic Fracturing examines the surface chemistry and phenomena in the hydrofracking process. Under great scrutiny as of late, the physico-chemical properties of hydrofracking are fully detailed and explained. Topics include the adsorption-desorption of gas on the shale reservoir surface... more...

  • InSAR Observations of Ground Deformationby Amy Laura Parker

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 94.71

    This doctoral thesis applies measurements of ground deformation from satellite radar using their potential to play a key role in understanding volcanic and magmatic processes throughout the eruption cycle. However, making these measurements is often problematic, and the processes driving ground deformation are commonly poorly understood. These problems... more...

  • Turbulence in the Solar Windby Roberto Bruno; Vincenzo Carbone

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 43.54

    This book provides an overview of solar wind turbulence from both the theoretical and observational perspective. It argues that the interplanetary medium offers the best opportunity to directly study turbulent fluctuations in collisionless plasmas.  In fact, during expansion, the solar wind evolves towards a state characterized by large-amplitude... more...

  • Turbulence and Dispersion in the Planetary Boundary Layerby Francesco Tampieri

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 97.97

    This book offers a comprehensive review of our current understanding of the planetary boundary layer, particularly the turbulent exchanges of momentum, heat and passive scalars between the surface of the Earth and the atmosphere.   It presents and discusses the observations and the theory of the turbulent boundary layer, both for homogeneous... more...

  • Atlas of Bedforms in the Western Mediterraneanby Jorge Guillén; Juan Acosta; Francesco Latino Chiocci; Albert Palanques

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 163.30

    This atlas illustrates the characteristics of present-day bedforms, from the shoreline to deep-sea environments, and it also includes short reviews of the main mechanisms that generate such bedforms. The atlas is aimed at the research community, in addition to students, the public at large and companies with interests in the marine environment. The... more...

  • Maréesby Encyclopædia Universalis

    Primento Digital Publishing 2016; US$ 4.99

    Le mot marée désigne, dans son acception la plus courante, le mouvement oscillatoire du niveau de la mer résultant des attractions de la Lune et du Soleil sur les particules liquides; le phénomène est donc une conséquence de la gravitation universelle. Les divers bassins océaniques, en raison de ... more...

  • Rogue and Shock Waves in Nonlinear Dispersive Mediaby Miguel Onorato; Stefania Resitori; Fabio Baronio

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 65.31

    This self-contained set of lectures addresses a gap in the literature by providing a systematic link between the theoretical foundations of the subject matter and cutting-edge applications in both geophysical fluid dynamics and nonlinear optics. Rogue and shock waves are phenomena that may occur in the propagation of waves in any nonlinear dispersive... more...

  • Hydrocarbon Prospectivity in the Eastern Coastal Swamp Depo-belt of the Niger Delta Basinby Chidozie Izuchukwu Princeton Dim

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 46.80

    This book broadens readers? understanding of the stratigraphic framework and structural styles for improved hydrocarbon prospectivity in the intermediate and deeper horizons of the eastern Coastal Swamp Depo-belt of Nigeria?s Niger Delta Basin. It equips readers to interpret complex sedimentary units, such as the paralic sequence of the Niger Delta... more...

  • Introduction to Turbulent Dynamical Systems in Complex Systemsby Andrew Majda

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 46.80

    This volume is a research expository article on the applied mathematics of turbulent dynamical systems through the paradigm of modern applied mathematics. It involves the blending of rigorous mathematical theory, qualitative and quantitative modeling, and novel numerical procedures driven by the goal of understanding physical phenomena which are of... more...
