  • Full Meridian of Gloryby Paul Murdin

    Springer 2008; US$ 27.50

    The Paris Meridian is the name of the line running north-south through the astronomical observatory in Paris. The French government financed the Paris Academy of Sciences to determine and measure this line in the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries. It employed both astronomers and geodesists. This book discusses about what they did and why. more...

  • Particulate Gravity Currents (Special Publication 31 of the IAS)by W. D. McCaffrey; J. Peakall; B. C. Kneller

    Wiley 2009; US$ 179.95

    This volume arises from the conference Sediment Transport and Deposition by Particulate Gravity Currents held in the UK in 1998. The field of particulate gravity currents ranges from turbidity currents in the oceans, lakes and reservoirs to pyroclastic density currents and avalanches, debris flows and lahars, grainflows, powder snow avalanches, effluent... more...

  • Geodetic Reference Framesby Hermann Drewes

    Springer 2009; US$ 269.00

    Presents the research on geodetic reference frames presented at the International Symposium on Geodetic Reference Frames of the International Association of Geodesy. more...

  • Global Geodetic Observing Systemby Hans-Peter Plag

    Springer 2009; US$ 239.00

    With the provision of accurate reference frames and observations of changes in Earth's shape, gravity field and rotation, modern geodesy takes a fundamental role for improved understanding of geodynamics, geohazards, the global water cycle, global change, atmosphere and ocean dynamics, and it supports many societal applications that depend on accurate... more...

  • An Introduction to Gravity Currents and Intrusionsby Marius Ungarish

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 104.95

    Gravity currents and intrusions are the ubiquitous phenomena where a fluid of one density flows horizontally into a fluid of a different density. For researchers and engineers, the ability to understand and predict these flow fields is essential in wide-ranging applications including those involved with atmospheric and ocean dynamics, the propagation... more...

  • System Earth via Geodetic-Geophysical Space Techniquesby Frank M. Flechtner; Mioara Mandea; Thomas R. Gruber; Markus Rothacher; Jens Wickert; Andreas Gunter; Tilo Schone

    Springer 2010; US$ 339.00

    The Earth's magnetic and gravity field play an important role in global and regional geodynamics. Satellite exploration of these fields has received great attention in recent years. Research satellites such as CHAMP and GRACE as well as the ESA explorer GOCE apply new measurement techniques, thus allowing the recovery of the gravitational and magnetic... more...

  • Geospatial Semantics and the Semantic Webby Naveen Ashish; Amit P. Sheth

    Springer 2011; US$ 119.00

    The availability of geographic and geospatial information and services, especially on the open Web has become abundant in the last several years with the proliferation of online maps, geo-coding services, geospatial Web services and geospatially enabled applications. The need for geospatial reasoning has significantly increased in many everyday applications... more...

  • Secret Scienceby Marķa M. Portuondo

    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 30.00

    The discovery of the New World raised many questions for early modern scientists: What did these lands contain? Where did they lie in relation to Europe? Who lived there, and what were their inhabitants like? Imperial expansion necessitated changes in the way scientific knowledge was gathered, and Spanish cosmographers in particular were charged... more...
