Grundlagen der Grenzschicht-Meteorologie: Einführung in die by Helmut Kraus

By Helmut Kraus

Den untersten Teil der Erdatmosph?re, der von der Erdoberfl?che direkt beeinflusst wird, nennt guy die atmosph?rische Grenzschicht. Sie geh?rt zur unmittelbaren Umwelt der meisten Lebewesen (Mensch, Tier, Pflanzenwelt) und erh?lt dadurch und durch viele ihrer eigenen Prozesse und Eigenschaften eine besondere Bedeutung. Deshalb hat sich auch ein eigenes Teilgebiet der Meteorologie, die Grenzschicht-Meteorologie, entwickelt. Dieses Buch stellt die wesentlichen Grundlagen dieser Disziplin zusammen und erl?utert sie. Dabei stehen einerseits physikalische Gesetze der Hydrodynamik (z. B. der Turbulenz) und der Thermodynamik, andererseits die stark interdisziplin?r ausgerichtete Mikrometeorologie bzw. Mikroklimatologie im Vordergrund des Interesses. Dieses Buch m?chte Leser ansprechen, die an der Meteorologie und vor allem an der bodennahen Atmosph?re interessiert sind. Dar?ber hinaus wendet es sich an alle, die sich mit der Wechselwirkung zwischen Erdoberfl?che und Atmosph?re auseinandersetzen, z. B. an Geographen, Bodenkundler und Pflanzen?kologen.

Nitrogen in the Marine Environment by Edward J. Carpenter, Douglas G. Capone

By Edward J. Carpenter, Douglas G. Capone

Nitrogen within the Marine atmosphere presents details pertinent to the various facets of the nitrogen cycle. This publication offers the advances in ocean productiveness study, with emphasis at the position of microbes in nitrogen differences with tours to better trophic levels.

Organized into 24 chapters, this e-book starts off with an summary of the abundance and distribution of a few of the sorts of nitrogen in a couple of estuaries. this article then presents a comparability of the nitrogen biking of varied ecosystems in the marine setting. different chapters examine chemical distributions and technique as an reduction to these getting into the sphere. This publication discusses besides the enzymology of the preliminary steps of inorganic nitrogen assimilation. the ultimate bankruptcy offers with the philosophy and alertness of modeling as an investigative approach in simple learn on nitrogen dynamics in coastal and open-ocean marine environments.

This ebook is a helpful source for plant biochemists, microbiologists, aquatic ecologists, and bacteriologists.

Risk and Decision Analysis in Maintenance Optimization and by M.J. Kallen and S.P. Kuniewski

By M.J. Kallen and S.P. Kuniewski

The past due professor J.M. Van Noortwijk (1961-2008) labored to bridge the perform of mathematical modeling with fixing complicated difficulties within the box of civil engineering. He constructed complicated probabilistic and statistical types and made those available to engineers operating in such parts as structural reliability, hydraulic engineering and upkeep optimization. This booklet comprises an summary of his paintings and a set of twelve papers offered on the symposium held in his honor at the twenty fourth of November, 2009, in Delft, the Netherlands. the subjects coated by way of those contributions contain the elicitation of specialists opinion, condition-based upkeep optimization utilizing the gamma strategy, and the evaluation and administration of flood hazards. They current the newest advancements by way of his friends of their respective fields.IOS Press is a world technology, technical and clinical writer of top of the range books for teachers, scientists, and pros in all fields. a number of the components we post in: -Biomedicine -Oncology -Artificial intelligence -Databases and knowledge structures -Maritime engineering -Nanotechnology -Geoengineering -All facets of physics -E-governance -E-commerce -The wisdom economic climate -Urban experiences -Arms keep an eye on -Understanding and responding to terrorism -Medical informatics -Computer Sciences

Atlas of the Deep-Water Seabed: Ireland by Boris Dorschel, Andrew J. Wheeler, Xavier Monteys, Koen

By Boris Dorschel, Andrew J. Wheeler, Xavier Monteys, Koen Verbruggen

Presented in an available, undemanding structure, this atlas units out the entire significant positive factors printed in the course of one of many greatest ever deep-sea mapping campaigns. a special perception into the morphology of the seabed alongside the continental margin of the North-East Atlantic, it unearths for the 1st time many positive factors that experience hitherto been hidden underneath the waves. it truly is organised either thematically and via zone, with the ocean flooring and its organic hotspots – components of excessive biodiversity reminiscent of seamounts – proven at a answer impossible ahead of. The atlas offers every little thing from submarine canyons to coral carbonate mounds, utilizing electronic terrain versions generated from multibeam facts and pictures taken from unmanned deep-water autos (ROVs).

The full-colour imagery comprises electronic 3-dimensional seabed maps in addition to the images, with concise textual content descriptions and subject packing containers used to focus on and clarify the geological, organic and hydrographical good points, as well as their significance and context within the deep-sea realm. along the wealth of historical past details and subject bins on detailed highlights, huge online assets hyperlink the reader to complete facts units and GIS destinations, whereas feedback for extra examining element to ongoing learn highlights. it is a attention-grabbing source that may be of use to someone keen on off-shore and underwater actions, no matter if medical or commercial.

Computerized Modeling of Sedimentary Systems by K. Black, M. Green, T. Healy, R. Bell, J. Oldman, T. Hume

By K. Black, M. Green, T. Healy, R. Bell, J. Oldman, T. Hume (auth.), Professor Dr. Jan Harff, Dr. Wolfram Lemke, Professor Dr. Karl Stattegger (eds.)

Computerized modeling is a robust software to explain the advanced interrelations among measured info and the dynamics of sedimentary platforms. complicated interplay of environmental elements with normal diversifications and extending anthropogenic intervention is mirrored within the sedimentary list at various scales. the certainty of those procedures provides solution to the reconstruction of the prior and is a key to the prediction of destiny traits. in particular in instances the place observations are constrained and/or pricey, computing device simulations could alternative for the shortcoming of information. cutting-edge learn paintings calls for an intensive wisdom of strategies on the interfaces among surroundings, hydrosphere, biosphere, and lithosphere, and is for this reason an interdisciplinary approach.
