  • Coping With Flash Floods by Eve Gruntfest, John Handmer

    By Eve Gruntfest, John Handmer

    This quantity is the court cases of a NATO-sponsored complex learn Institute (ASI) entitled "Coping with Flash Floods" held in Ravello, Italy on 8-17 November 1999. Thirty-five individuals from 9 nations attended the ASI, representing either built (United States, England, Italy, and Mexico) and constructing (Poland, Uganda, Greece, Ukraine, and Slovenia) international locations. contributors from quite a few professions and disciplines have been concerned together with a hydraulics engineering professor from Slovenia, 4 individuals from the Polish Institute of Meteorology and Water administration, and a U. S. Geological Survey learn hydrologist from Puerto Rico. even if the ASI used to be formally composed of academics and scholars, those roles have been blurred as all people shared info and ideas, and discovered from the opposite contributors through the 10 days. one of many highlights of the ASI used to be the collaborative attempt of individuals from varied nations and disciplines. It used to be relatively striking that the 2 engineers from Greece made the main passionate pleas for long-term sustainable suggestions to flash floods. another instance is that whereas there have been in simple terms 3 contributors with social technology backgrounds, many of the techniques specialise in the coverage and societal priorities, greater than the engineering, hydrologic or meteorologic efforts.

  • Hydroclimatology by Marlyn L. Shelton

    By Marlyn L. Shelton

    Hydroclimatology presents a scientific constitution for reading how the weather procedure explanations time and area adaptations (both international and native) within the hydrologic cycle. alterations within the dating among the weather approach and the hydrologic cycle underlie floods, drought and attainable destiny affects of worldwide warming on water assets. Land-based facts, satellite tv for pc info, and laptop types give a contribution to our knowing of the complicated time and area adaptations of actual techniques shared by way of the weather method and the hydrologic cycle. mixing key info from the fields of climatology and hydrology - which aren't usually present in a unmarried quantity - this can be a great textbook for college kids in atmospheric technology, hydrology, Earth and environmental technological know-how, geography, and environmental engineering. it's also an invaluable reference for tutorial researchers in those fields.

    By V. P. Singh (auth.), Professor Vijay P. Singh (eds.)

    The common meeting of the United international locations handed a solution on December eleven, 1987, designating the Nineteen Nineties because the overseas Decade for average catastrophe relief. This solution has served as a catalyst in advertising of foreign cooperation within the box of ordinary catastrophe relief; in initiation of wide-ranging study actions on typical and man-made failures; in improvement of tech­ nologies for evaluation, prediction, prevention, and mitigation via technical counsel, know-how move, demonstration initiatives, and schooling and coaching; and in dissemination of data concerning measures for evaluation, prediction, prevention, and mitigation of typical failures. mess ups are manifestations of environmental extremes. based upon the kind of mess ups, their incidence can have non permanent andlor long term detri­ psychological environmental results. mess ups can't be avoided altogether, yet their effect might be mitigated. This ebook is an try to supply a dialogue of hydrological elements of a number of the varieties of usual mess ups. it really is was hoping that others should be inspired to jot down extra finished texts in this topic of large importance.

The theories, versions, and real-world strategies provided function a toolkit for designing a administration plan for the ecologically sustainable improvement of estuaries.

    • Provides a valid wisdom of the actual functioning of an estuary, a severe portion of figuring out its ecological functioning
    • Ideal reference for these attracted to marine biology, oceanography, coastal administration, and sustainable development
    • Describes the necessities in the back of conceptual and numerical versions of the overall healthiness of an estuary environment and the way to exploit those types to quantify either human affects and the price of remediation and administration measures
    • Chapters are written in an available means that encourages collaboration among aquatic, marine, and wetland biologists, ecologists, oceanographers, geologists, geomorphologists, chemists, and environment modelers
    • Covers the actual, chemical, and organic components of estuary environments, indicating that the essence of an estuary’s functioning lies in its connectivity with the adjoining catchment and the marine/coastal system

  • Adsorption Technology in Water Treatment by Eckhard Worch

    By Eckhard Worch

    Adsorption techniques have performed a primary position in water therapy for a few years yet their value is at the upward thrust with the continual discoveries of latest micropollutants within the water cycle (pharmaceuticals for example). as well as the classical software in ingesting water remedy, different software fields are attracting expanding curiosity, similar to wastewater remedy, groundwater remediation, remedy of landfill leachate, and so forth. in line with the author's long term event in adsorption study, the clinical monograph treats the theoretical basics of adsorption know-how for water therapy from a pragmatic point of view. It offers the entire fundamentals wanted for experimental adsorption stories in addition to for technique modelling and adsorber layout. issues mentioned within the monograph contain: advent into uncomplicated recommendations and sensible purposes of adsorption procedures; adsorbents and their characterisation, unmarried and multi-solute adsorption equilibria, adsorption kinetics, adsorption dynamics in fixed-bed adsorbers and fixed-bed adsorber layout, regeneration and reactivation of adsorbents, creation into geosorption strategies in financial institution filtration and groundwater recharge. in accordance with the expanding value of micropollutants within the water cycle, specific consciousness is paid to their aggressive adsorption in presence of historical past natural subject. transparent illustrations, large literature references and an invaluable index make this paintings indispensible for either scientists and technicians thinking about water remedy.

  • Meteorologie: Eine interdisziplinäre Einführung in die by Brigitte Klose

    By Brigitte Klose

    Dieses Lehrbuch behandelt die zentralen Inhalte der Meteorologie für Studenten der Geographie, Hydrologie, Ozeanographie, Meteorologie, Nautik und Klimatologie. In der zweiten Auflage wurde das Buch hinsichtlich der Klimatologie und Aerosolphysik erweitert. Eingang fanden auch die Lösungen der Übungsaufgaben sowie zahlreiche neue Abbildungen und Tabellen.

    Meteorologie beschäftigt sich mit den atmosphärischen Zuständen und Prozessen in ihrer raumzeitlichen Verteilung, wobei die Raumskalen Größenordnungen von wenigen Millimetern bis hin zu einigen tausend Kilometern aufweisen und die Zeitskalen im Bereich von Millisekunden bis zu einigen Millionen Jahren variieren, so dass eine große Mannigfaltigkeit von atmosphärischen Bewegungsformen und Strukturen existiert.

    Das Werk beruht auf langjährigen Lehrerfahrungen an der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin und am Fachbereich Seefahrt der Jade-Hochschule. Es bietet Studenten und Lehrkräften einen praxisbezogenen und fundierten Einstieg in die Zustände und Prozesse der uns umgebenden Umwelt.

    Brigitte Klose arbeitete nach ihrem Studium zunächst im Flugwetterdienst und als Fernsehmeteorologe, ehe sie an der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin promovierte und habilitierte. Von 1989 bis 1996 battle Sie Dozentin am Fachbereich Meteorologie und Geophysik der Humboldt-Universität und von 1997 bis zu ihrer Emeritierung Professorin für Navigation und Meteorologie am Fachbereich Seefahrt in Elsfleth (Jade-Hochschule). Neben zahlreichen Veröffentlichungen entstand 2008 Ihr Lehrbuch zur Meteorologie.
