TitleSpectral Analysis and Filter Theory in Applied Geophysics
Author(s)Buttkus, Burkhard
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2000.
DescriptionXV, 667 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book is intended to be an introduction to the fundamentals and methods of spectral analysis and filter theory and their appli?? cations in geophysics. The principles and theoretical basis of the various methods are described, their efficiency and effectiveness eval?? uated, and instructions provided for their practical application. Be?? sides the conventional methods, newer methods arediscussed, such as the spectral analysis ofrandom processes by fitting models to the ob?? served data, maximum-entropy spectral analysis and maximum-like?? lihood spectral analysis, the Wiener and Kalman filtering methods, homomorphic deconvolution, and adaptive methods for nonstation?? ary processes. Multidimensional spectral analysis and filtering, as well as multichannel filters, are given extensive treatment. The book provides a survey of the state-of-the-art of spectral analysis and fil?? ter theory. The importance and possibilities ofspectral analysis and filter theory in geophysics for data acquisition, processing and eval?? uation are illustrated with practical examples from various fields of applied geophysics. Although this book was planned primarily as a textbook for a course on the analysis of geophysical time?? series, it may also be of interest to scientists and engineers who process other digital data. It provides a comprehensive discussion of the theoretical fundamen?? tals and a compilation of the extensive literature on the subject. I hope that I have succeeded in presenting the various principles and methods of time-series analysis comprehensively and without error. Comments on errors or suggestions for improvements are welcome

TitlePlanets in Binary Star Systems
Author(s)Haghighipour, Nader
PublicationDordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2010.
DescriptionVIII, 332 p. 200 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteThe discovery of extrasolar planets over the past decade has had major impacts on our understanding of the formation and dynamical evolution of planetary systems. There are features and characteristics unseen in our solar system and unexplainable by the current theories of planet formation and dynamics. Among these new surprises is the discovery of planets in binary and multiple-star systems. The discovery of such "binary-planetary" systems has confronted astrodynamicists with many new challenges, and has led them to re-examine the theories of planet formation and dynamics. Among these challenges are: How are planets formed in binary star systems? What would be the notion of habitability in such systems? Under what conditions can binary star systems have habitable planets? How will volatiles necessary for life appear on such planets? This volume seeks to gather the current research in the area of planets in binary and multistar systems and to familiarize readers with its associated theoretical and observational challenges

TitleComet/Asteroid Impacts and Human Society : An Interdisciplinary Approach
Author(s)Bobrowsky, Peter T;Rickman, Hans
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2007.
DescriptionXXVI, 546 p : online resource
Abstract NoteIn 1908 an atmospheric explosion in northern Siberia released energy equivalent to 15 Mton of TNT. Can a comparable or larger NEO affect us again? When the next NEO strikes Earth will it be large enough to destroy a city? Will the climate change significantly? Can archaeology and anthropology provide insights into the expected cultural responses with NEO interactions? Does society have a true grasp of the actual risks involved? Is the Great Depression a good model for the economic collapse that could follow a NEO catastrophe? This volume provides a necessary link between various disciplines and comet/asteroid impacts

TitleFrom Fossils to Astrobiology : Records of Life on Earth and the Search for Extraterrestrial Biosignatures
Author(s)Seckbach, Joseph;Walsh, Maud
PublicationDordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2008.
DescriptionXXXVI, 546 p : online resource
Abstract NoteFrom Fossils to Astrobiology reviews developments in paleontology and geobiology that relate to the rapidly-developing field of Astrobiology, the study of life in the Universe. Many traditional areas of scientific study, including astronomy, chemistry and planetary science, contribute to Astrobiology, but the study of the record of life on planet Earth is critical in guiding investigations in the rest of the cosmos. In this varied book, expert scientists from 15 countries present peer-reviewed, stimulating reviews of paleontological and astrobiological studies. The overviews of established and emerging techniques for studying modern and ancient microorganisms on Earth and beyond, will be valuable guides to evaluating biosignatures which could be found in the extraterrestrial surface or subsurface within the Solar System and beyond. This volume also provides discussion on the controversial reports of "nanobacteria" in the Martian meteorite ALH84001. It is a unique volume among Astrobiology monographs in focusing on fossil evidence from the geological record and will be valuable to students and researchers alike

TitleThe Stones and the Stars : Building Scotland's Newest Megalith
Author(s)Lunan, Duncan
PublicationNew York, NY, Springer New York, 2013.
DescriptionXIX, 325 p. 190 illus., 114 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThere are at least 48 identified prehistoric stone circles in Scotland. ??In truth, very little is known about the people who erected them, and ultimately about what the stone circles were for. ??Most stone circles are astronomically aligned, which has led to the modern debate over the significance of the alignments. ??The megaliths certainly represented an enormous cooperative effort, would at the very least have demonstrated power and wealth, and being set away from any dwellings probably served a ceremonial, or perhaps religious, purpose. Observations at the site of the stone circles, of solar, lunar, and stellar events, have already cast light on some of the questions about the construction and use of ancient megalithic observatories. In his capacity as manager of the Glasgow Parks Department Astronomy Project, author Duncan Lunan designed and built in the late 1970s Sighthill, the first astronomically aligned stone circle in Britain in over 3,000 years. ??The Stones and the Stars examines the case for astronomical alignments of stone circles and charts the development of a fascinating project with a strong scientific and historical flavor. ??The work was documented in detail by artist and photographer Gavin Roberts, and the book contains a large selection of illustrations that bring the project vividly to life

TitleOn the Moon : The Apollo Journals
Author(s)Heiken, Grant;Jones, Eric
PublicationNew York, NY, Springer New York, 2007.
DescriptionXIV, 492 p. 24 illus : online resource
Abstract NotePublic interest in the first lunar landing transcended political, economic and social borders ??? the world was briefly united by the courage of the crew, and the wonder of the accomplishment. Prompted by the rivalry of the Cold War, Apollo 11 and the five missions that subsequently landed on the Moon were arguably the finest feats of exploration in human history. But these were more than exercises in ???flags and footprints???, because the missions involved the crews making geological field trips on a low gravity site while wearing pressure suits, carrying life-support systems on their backs and working against an unforgiving time line. The missions delivered not only samples of moonrock, but also hard-learned lessons for how to work on the surface of another planet, and this experience will be crucial to planning the resumption of the human exploration of the Moon and going on to Mars

TitleStars Above, Earth Below : A Guide to Astronomy in the National Parks
Author(s)Nordgren, Tyler
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Praxis 2. Praxis, 2010.
DescriptionXII, 444 p : online resource
Abstract NoteIn Stars Above, Earth Below, Tyler Nordgren examines a range of astronomical topics and makes the connection between them and the landscapes, processes, and cultures which can be seen and experienced within specific U.S. National Parks. For each park and topic the story unfolds in three steps: what does the reader see for him - or herself? What is the scientific cause or explanation of what is seen? And finally, what is the big picture about ourselves, our world, and our Universe? The author takes us the length and breadth of the U.S., from the coast of Maine to the Yellowstone volcano, from the depths of the Grand Canyon to the heights of the Rocky Mountains, exploring the natural links between the features of the parks and those of our Universe

TitleNoctilucent Clouds
Author(s)Gadsden, Michael;Schr??der, Wilfried
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1989.
DescriptionIX, 165 p. 53 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteAn atmospheric phenomenon is considered as 'explained' when we have succeeded in deducing it on the basis of accepted principles of physics. (H. Ertel, Methods and problems of dynamical meteorolo?? gy,p. l) Until recently, noctilucent clouds were regarded merely as a curious atmos?? pheric phenomenon, the occurrence of which aroused only limited scientific attention. However, in the last two decades the interest they have been given has markedly increased. The clouds, usually pale blue in colour, may be seen on a clear night at high latitudes. Typical examples are illustrated in the book. Clouds looking like these in daytime would be classified as cirrostratus. What sets noctilucent clouds apart is their occurrence in the middle of the night, their very obvious pale blue colour, and their disappearance into the dawn close to the onset of civil twilight when the Sun is 6?? below the horizon. as being set apart from ordinary Noctilucent clouds were first recognized clouds in 1884/1885 and in a series of sightings that followed their return in the summer of 1885. That year marked the beginning of observations and the interpretation of twilight phenomena. The impetus came from the extraordi?? nary Krakatoa eruption, which was not only one of the most spectacular volcanic eruptions in recorded history, but which also turned out to be a startling event in atmospheric science with repercussions even in our time

TitleDictionary of Minor Planet Names
Author(s)Schmadel, Lutz D
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1992.
DescriptionIX, 687 p : online resource
Abstract NoteAccording to a long-standing astronomical tradition, the naming of minor planets in the solar system is the privilege of the discoverers. Contrary to most other kinds of celestial objects which receive complex alpha-numerical designations, the names of minor planets often say more about the discoverers than about the object in question. There is a rich and colourful variety of ingenious names, from those of heavenly goddesses in the nineteenth century, to the more prosaic and sometimes very specific names of observatories, towns and mountains, computers and persons, given by present-day discoverers. Commission 20 of the International Astronomical Union, under whose auspices the naming of minor planets falls, has long been concerned with the need to establish a complete catalogue of these names, as well as of the interpretation of their meanings. For this purpose, a Study Group on the Origin of Minor Planet Names was set up at the time of the IAU General Assembly in Baltimore in August 1988. The Working Group immediately started to collect information about these matters from all available sources, including some earlier, incomplete compilations made in the U.S. and in Europe, and also by personal interaction with living discoverers of minor planets
