Описание: This volume will discuss the state of the art of different observation and measurement techniques useful for ecohydrological studies. The techniques cover the entire spectrum of the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum. And the other volumes are "Water and Ecosystems" by Chunmiao Zheng and Paul D. Brooks, "Water-Limited Environments" by Yi Zheng and Shilong Piao, "Integrated Ecohydrological Modeling" by Dawen Yang and "River Basin Management" by Xiangzheng Deng and John Gibson.
Описание: This book contains papers on the state-of-the-art of the application of satellite observations in the fields of irrigation, water management, and vegetation monitoring. The role of remote sensing from space and its usefulness in the analysis of important processes related to the hydrological cycle are presented with reference to real-world applications and ready-to-transfer operability.
Описание: This book represents a quantum step forward in advancing science that optimizes the synergy between development and biodiversity conservation in Asia. The aim is to foster a harmonious balance between development and conservation in the region.
Описание: Biological diversity is important for ecosystem function and services, which in turn is essential for human well-being. Under the Convention on Biological Diversity, international efforts have been made to achieve a significant reduction in the current rate of biodiversity loss. The loss continues, however. The Asia-Pacific region includes both developing countries with high biodiversity and developed countries with sophisticated data collection and analyses, but only limited information about the status quo of biodiversity in this region has been available. Many Asia-Pacific countries have rapidly grown their economies and social infrastructures, causing a loss of biodiversity and requiring an urgent mandate to achieve a balance between development and conservation in the region. In December 2009, scientists successfully organized the Asia-Pacific Biodiversity Observation Network in the region, to establish a network for research and monitoring of ecosystems and biodiversity and to build a cooperative framework. The present volume is the first collection of information on biodiversity in the Asia-Pacific and represents a quantum step forward in science that optimizes the synergy between development and biodiversity conservation.
Описание: John Young Buchanan (1844–1925) was a Scottish chemist and oceanographer who worked extensively on the chemistry of marine environments. Originally published in 1917, this book gathers together a selection of Buchanan's papers on a broad variety of topics, some of them non-scientific. Numerous illustrative figures are also included and the contents listing contains extensive notes on each of the papers. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the writings of Buchanan, chemistry, oceanography and the history of science.

Описание: "With the advent of computers, novel instruments, satellite technology, and increasingly powerful modeling tools, we know more about the ocean than ever before. Yet we also have a new generation of oceanographers who have become increasingly distanced from the object of their study. Ever-fewer scientists collect the observational data on which they base their research. Instead, many download information without always fully understanding how far removed it is from the original data, with opportunity for great misinterpretation. This textbook introduces modern physical oceanography to beginning graduate students and experienced practitioners in allied fields. Real observations are strongly emphasized, as is their implications for understanding the behavior of the global ocean. Written by a leading physical oceanographer, Physical Oceanography and the Oceanic General Circulation explains what the observational revolution of the past twenty-five years has taught us about the real, changing fluid ocean. Unlike any existing book, it provides a comprehensive and accessible treatment of the subject, covering everything from modern methods of observation and data analysis to the fluid dynamics and modeling of ocean processes and variability. Fully illustrated in color throughout, the book describes the fundamental concepts that are needed before delving into more advanced topics, including internal-inertial waves, tides, balanced motions, and large-scale circulation physics"--
Описание: Afforestation of former arable land is currently a common change in land use in many European countries. In addition to wood production, the new forests will provide a variety of environmental services, such as carbon sequestration or improved water quality. At the same time there may be negative impacts, such as reduced groundwater recharge. The contents of the book aims at developed techniques to estimate the environmental impacts, and guidelines and decision support systems (DSS) to enable national and international policy makers, but also forest managers, to maximize the benefits and minimize the adverse effects of afforestation. This book will describe afforestation research and shows the application of the developed decision support system. The results should be applicable throughout northwest Europe and could be extended elsewhere. This book considers three of the most important environmental issues - carbon sequestration in soils and biomass, water surplus and nitrate leaching. The book describes the research to quantify these effects in the field and model them into the future. It will explain how the more detailed models were reduced to "metamodels" suitable for implementation within a real-time management system.
