The Sky (CubeBook)

The Sky (CubeBook) Lowest new price: $52.92
Lowest used price: $3.61
List price: $18.95
Brand: Brand: White Star Publishers

The sky is a never-ending source of inspiration for artists, poets, and anyone who has found peace in contemplating clouds or a colorful sunset. Whether viewed from below or from above—with the help of satellite images—the pictures in this new addition to White Star's popular CubeBooks series convey the many faces of the sky. Colorful images capture the violent force of tempestuous storms as well as the glorious sunrises, sunsets, and northern lights that are reflections of nature's gentler side. Readers view the sky in horizons that frame both the most beautiful natural parks and landscapes in the world and the skylines of the world's most sophisticated cities. Spectacular views of flocks of migratory birds pose a fascinating contrast to images of people "flying" in extreme sports such as paragliding, sky-diving or through the impressive maneuvers of acrobatic air squads. Throughout the book, insightful captions provide fascinating facts about meteorological phenomena and other heavenly tidbits. With its stunning full-page spreads, the Cubebook format is ideal for showcasing sweeping cloud formations, dramatic weather patterns, and vast expanses of deep, pure blue sky. Accessible and delightfully tactile, The Sky Cubebook will appeal to readers of all ages.

Air Pollution Control Engineering

Air Pollution Control Engineering Lowest new price: $129.63
Lowest used price: $23.31
Author: Noel de Nevers

This text covers the whole air pollution field, from an engineering perspective. The principal topics are control devices and their theory. The book uses many more examples than other texts to help the student see the magnitudes of important quantities and to show and practice the practical application of theoretical treatments presented. The other half is devoted to topics that form some of the background for the selection of such devices, i.e., air pollution effects, the structure of U.S. air pollution law, atmospheric models, etc.

The Cosmic Winter

The Cosmic Winter Lowest new price: $190.24
Lowest used price: $99.98
List price: $28.95
Author: Victor Clube

During five days in late June 1975, a swarm of boulders the size of motor cars struck the moon at a speed of 67,000 miles per hour. On 30 June 1908 an object crashed on Siberia with the force of a large hydrogen bomb. The moon was also struck on 25 June 1178 struck, this time by a missile whose energy was ten times that of the combined nuclear arsenals of the world. Why late June? What is the nature of such events? And what threat do they pose to mankind? The authors aim to reveal the answers in this book. They argue that rains of fire visit the earth from time to time, destroying civilizations and plunging mankind into Dark Ages. They uncover a lost tradition of celestial catastrophe, and underpin these claims with foundations based on the latest discoveries in space. They produce a risk assessment which reveals that civilization could well come to an abrupt end, destroyed by a rain of fire followed by an icy, cosmic winter.

Antarctic Marine Geology

Antarctic Marine Geology Lowest new price: $94.00
Lowest used price: $41.39
List price: $259.99
Author: John B. Anderson
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

The fragile Antarctic environment consists of a closely linked system of the lithosphere, atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere. Changes in this system have influenced global climate, oceanography and sea level for most of Cenozoic time. The geological history of this region therefore provides a special record of important interactions among the various components of the Earth System. Antarctic Marine Geology is the first comprehensive single-authored book to introduce students and researchers to the geological history of the region and the unique processes that occur there. Research literature on the region is widely disseminated, and until now no single reference has existed that provides such a summary. The book is intended as a reference for all scientists working in Antarctica, and will also serve as a textbook for graduate courses in Antarctic marine geology.

The purpose of this book is to describe in mathematical, physical and biological terms, the growth and decay of ice, on a scale ranging from molecular to macroscopic. Consideration of the growth of ice in each of the above contexts provides a clearer understanding of the processes involved and results in a comprehensive overview not available elsewhere. This book will be of particular use to any graduate student, scientist or engineer requiring an introduction and reference for ice-related projects: theoretical or experimental; in the laboratory or the field.
