Catastrophic Coastal Storms: Hazard Mitigation and Development Management (Duke Press Policy Studies)

Catastrophic Coastal Storms: Hazard Mitigation and Development Management (Duke Press Policy Studies) Lowest new price: $69.72
Lowest used price: $29.82
List price: $89.95
Author: David R. Godschalk
Brand: Brand: Duke University Press Books

As people cluster on the coast in increasing numbers, coastal populations become more vulnerable to severe damage from catastrophic coastal storms. The authors contented that current public policy has proved unable to cope with the growing problem, and in response they present a comprehensive analysis of coastal storm hazards, standard policy approaches, and promising new means of managing coastal growth.

Catastrophic Coastal Storms offers a solution to the policy problem by proposing a merger of hazard mitigation with development management, basing this on extensive surveys of at-risk coastal locations and case studies of post-hurricane recovery. Starting with the local level of government and proceeding to state and federal levels, the authors propose a strategy for overcoming the formidable obstacles to safeguarding the shoreline population and its structures from hurricanes and other severe storms.

The Growth and Decay of Ice (Studies in Polar Research)

The Growth and Decay of Ice (Studies in Polar Research) Lowest new price: $272.66
Lowest used price: $29.95
List price: $136.99
Author: G. S. H. Lock

Ice exists in water, in air, in earth and in living organisms. 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.

Wind-over-Wave Couplings: Perspectives and Prospects (Institute of Mathematics and its Applications Conference Series)

Wind-over-Wave Couplings: Perspectives and Prospects (Institute of Mathematics and its Applications Conference Series) Lowest new price: $116.35
Lowest used price: $9.20
List price: $400.00

One of the most familiar phenomena on the planet, water waves remain an elusive question for science. The way in which wind blows over water and causes waves is a very active area of research for applied mathematicians, as well as for oceanographers and engineers. The basic mechanisms are still a matter of controversy, although the use of modern techniques of asymptotic and non-linear analysis and large-scale computation, as well as experimental structures, are beginning to reveal the underlying mechanics. These studies are resulting in increasingly powerful methods of forecasting waves and of gauging and controlling their effects on such things as sediment, pollution, and offshore structures. This volume covers the wide range of current research on the relationship between wind and waves and includes contributions from many of the leading authorities in the field.


The Sky (CubeBook)

The Sky (CubeBook) Lowest new price: $48.70
Lowest used price: $2.15
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.

Lowest used price: $119.00
List price: $179.99
Author: Arieh Singer

This book describes the soils of Israel, offering details of their distribution, chemical, physical, and mineralogical characteristics and agricultural attributes. The pathways to the formation of each soil type are discussed against the background of such soil-forming factors as climate, lithology and physiography. The distribution of the different soil types is explained, based on the relationships between soils and soil-forming factors. This the first reference on the topic since 1948.
