  • Case Studies in Oceanography and Marine Affairsby Joan Brown; Gerry Bearman

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    This is the last volume in the six-volume Open University set. Each volume is required by students as a relevant part of the Open University course but designed so that it can equally be used as an individual textbook. This volume differs from the others in the series in that it does not draw specifically upon traditional scientific disciplines. The... more...

  • Sea Surface Sound '94by M.J. Buckingham; J.R. Potter

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 164.00

    Understanding and constructively using natural sound in the ocean has become of prime importance with the shift of emphasis to protecting the environment and exercising responsible global resource management which has followed the end of the Cold War. Especially now that we realise that marine mammals and other inhabitants of the oceans are threatened... more...

  • The Earth as a Cradle for Lifeby Frank D. Stacey; Jane H. Hodgkinson

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 91.00

    The Earth as a Cradle for Life aims to fill the gap between readers who have a strong and informed scientific interest in the environment (but no access to the journal literature), and their desire for a basic understanding of the environment. It provides a comprehensive account, and requires no advanced mathematical skills. It will also satisfy a... more...

  • The Near-Surface Layer of the Oceanby Alexander Soloviev; Roger Lukas

    Springer 2013; US$ 179.00

    The rationale for publishing a second edition of this monograph is that this area of research continues to show remarkable advancement. The new generation of synthetic aperture radar satellites has provided unprecedented spatial resolution of sea surface features. In addition, satellites to measure sea surface salinity have been launched. Computational... more...

  • The Aral Seaby Philip Micklin; Nikolay Aladin; Igor Plotnikov

    Springer 2013; US$ 229.00

    The book is structured into six core parts. The first part sets the scene and explains how the use of Aral basin water resources, primarily used for irrigation, have destroyed the Aral Sea. The team explains how spheres and events interact and the related problems. Part 2 examines the social consequences of the ecological catastrophe and the affect... more...

  • Holocene Sea-level Scenarios in Bangladeshby Towhida Rashid

    Springer 2014; US$ 54.99

    This Brief deals with the reconstruction of Holocene paleoenvironment in the central part of Bangladesh in relation to relative sea-level (RSL) changes which is 200 km north from the present coastline. Lithofacies characteristics, mangal peat, diatom and paleophysiographical evidences were considered to reconstruct the past position and C-14 ages were... more...

  • Coastal Engineering 2004by Jane McKee Smith

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 1,302.00

    This comprehensive and up-to-date volume contains 367 papers presented at the 29th International Conference on Coastal Engineering, held in Lisbon, Portugal, 19–24 September 2004. It is divided into five parts: waves; long waves, nearshore currents, and swash; sediment transport and morphology; coastal management, beach nourishment, and dredging;... more...

  • The Analysis of Diffuse Triple Junction Zones in Plate Tectonics and the Pirate Model of Western Caribbean Tectonicsby Duncan Keppie

    Springer 2014; US$ 19.99

    Modern researchers in plate tectonics may be concerned with the analysis of distributed deformation across diffuse plate boundaries and triple junction zones. This book extends classic methods of kinematic analysis first developed in the 1960s to the more general scenarios of diffuse deformation zones between plates. The analytic methods presented... more...

  • Principles of Ocean Physicsby John R. Apel; William L. Donn

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95

    In recent years, significant advances in both the theoretical and observational sides of physical oceanography have allowed the ocean's physical behavior to be described more quantitatively. This book discusses the physical mechanisms and processes of the sea, and will be valuable not only to oceanographers but also physicists, graduate students,... more...
