  • Palaeoweathering, Palaeosurfaces and Related Continental Deposits (Special Publication 27 of the IAS)by Medard Thiry; Regine Simon Coincon

    Wiley 2009; US$ 150.00

    The study of palaeoweathering provides vital clues about past continental environments, the correlation of sedimentary deposits and processes such as the rate and timing of uplift and erosion. This volume (based partly on research presented at IGCP 317 Palaeoweathering Records and Palaeosurfaces) contains contributions that use both geochemical and... more...

  • The South China Seaby Pinxian Wang; Qianyu Li

    Springer 2009; US$ 129.00

    A synthesis of sedimentary geology and paleoceanography of the South China Sea on the basis of extensive industrial explorations and scientific expeditions culminated with the ODP Leg 184. It offers knowledge about the history of this largest marginal sea in the West Pacific, deep-sea records of evolution and variations of the East Asian monsoon. more...

  • Climate Systemsby Julie Kerr Casper

    Infobase Publishing 2009; US$ 48.00

    Many scientists today refer to the phenomenon of 'global warming' as 'climate change' because they feel it is a better overall description of the situation. While it is certainly true that the atmosphere is warming up, that is only one part of the problem. As the Earth's atmosphere continues to warm, glaciers and ice caps are melting,... more...

  • Recent Progress in Atmospheric Sciencesby K N Liou

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 234.00

    This book contains 22 peer-reviewed articles that cover a spectrum of contemporary subjects relevant to atmospheric sciences, with specific applications to the Asia-Pacific region. The majority of these papers consist of a review of a scientific sub-field in atmospheric sciences, while some contain original contributions. All of the accepted papers... more...

  • The El Niño-Southern Oscillation Phenomenonby Edward S. Sarachik; Mark A. Cane

    Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 76.00

  • Methane and Climate Changeby Pete Smith; David Reay; Andre Van Amstel

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 95.00

    Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas and is estimated to be responsible for approximately one-fifth of man-made global warming. Per kilogram, it is 25 times more powerful than carbon dioxide over a 100-year time horizon -- and global warming is likely to enhance methane release from a number of sources. Current natural and man-made sources include... more...

  • AN Appeal to Reasonby Nigel Lawson

    Overlook 2009; US$ 9.95

    "Clear, analytical and compelling." - The Economist In this well-informed and hard-hitting response to the scaremongering of the climate alarmists, Nigel Lawson, former Secretary of State for Energy under Margaret Thatcher, argues that it is time for us to take a cool look at global warming. Lawson carefully and succinctly examines all aspects... more...
