Satellite Information Classification and Interpretation

This volume is dedicated to classification and interpretation of the processes taking place on the Earth and in space. Without a doubt, understanding what we must do to save our home, our planet, and how we are to do it is of the gravest importance for the present generation and the next. Clearly, advances won through space technology and applications of the same to the study of Earth play an excellent and vital role in classificatio...

Life on the Edge: The Coming of Age of Quantum Biology

"Life on the Edge gives the clearest account I've ever read of the possible ways in which the very small events of the quantum world can affect the world of middle-sized living creatures like us. With great vividness and clarity it shows how our world is tinged, even saturated, with the weirdness of the quantum." —Philip Pullman

Thinking Physics: Practical Lessons in Critical Thinking

I like this book because it has interesting and motivating physics problems that can be solved without math, but with just careful thinking on the truly physical aspects and principles. I do not mean that math should not be used in physics books, nor that all physics problems can be solved without math, but problems that do not need math are also very interesting and should be taught; this book is very good in doing that. I think thi...

Beryllium: Physicochemical Properties, Applications and Safety Concerns

Beryllium (Be) is a lightweight metal with unique chemical and physical properties. It is stiff, resistant to corrosion, a good conductor of electricity and heat, and dimensionally stable during extreme temperature changes. These properties have made it desirable for many commercial and defense applications, such as aircraft and satellite structures, high-speed electronic circuitry, nuclear applications, and precision instruments. It...

"Monitoring of Marine Pollution" ed. by Houma Bachari Fouzia
PDF
Monitoring of Marine Pollution

This study is devoted to monitoring areas of the environment. Many of the pollutants discharged into the sea are directly or indirectly the result of human activities. Some of these substances are biodegradable, while others are not. Methods assessment is based on monitoring data and an evaluation of the impact of pollution. Surveillance provides a scientific basis for standards development and application. The methodology of marine ...
