Title  Geomorphological Fluid Mechanics 
Author(s)  Balmforth, N.J;Provenzale, A 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2001. 
Description  X, 582 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Geomorphology deals with some of the most striking patterns of nature. From mountain ranges and midocean ridges, to river networks and sand dunes, there is a whole family of forms, structures, and shapes that demand rationalization as well as mathematical description. In the various chapters of this volume, many of these patterns will be explored and discussed, and attempts will be made to both unravel the reasons for their very existence and to describe their dynamics in quantitative terms. Particular focus will be on lava and mud flows, ice and snow dynamics, river and coastal morphodynamics and landscape formation. Combining a pedagogical approach with uptodate reviews of forefront research, this volume will serve both postgraduate students and lecturers in search of advanced textbook material, and experienced researchers wishing to get acquainted with the various physical and mathematical approaches in a range of closely related research fields

Title  Numerical Treatment of Multiphase Flows in Porous Media : Proceedings of the International Workshop Held at Beijing, China, 2???6 August 1999 
Author(s)  Chen, Zhangxin;Ewing, Richard E;Shi, ZhongCi 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2000. 
Description  XXI, 446 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The need to predict, understand, and optimize complex physical and c mical processes occurring in and around the earth, such as groundwater c tamination, oil reservoir production, discovering new oil reserves, and ocean hydrodynamics, has been increasingly recognized. Despite their seemingly disparate natures, these geoscience problems have many common mathe tical and computational characteristics. The techniques used to describe and study them are applicable across a broad range of areas. The study of the above problems through physical experiments, mat matical theory, and computational techniques requires interdisciplinary col boration between engineers, mathematicians, computational scientists, and other researchers working in industry, government laboratories, and univ sities. By bringing together such researchers, meaningful progress can be made in predicting, understanding, and optimizing physical and chemical processes. The International Workshop on Fluid Flow and Transport in Porous  dia was successfully held in Beijing, China, August 2{6, 1999. The aim of this workshop was to bring together applied mathematicians, computational scientists, and engineers working actively in the mathematical and nume cal treatment of ?uid ?ow and transport in porous media. A broad range of researchers presented papers and discussed both problems and current, stateoftheart techniques

Title  Accretion of Extraterrestrial Matter Throughout Earth???s History 
Author(s)  PeuckerEhrenbrink, Bernhard;Schmitz, Birger 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer US, 2001. 
Description  XXVI, 466 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Every year Earth is bombarded with about 40,000 tons of extraterrestrial material. This includes microscopic cosmic dust particles shed by comets and asteroids in outer space, meteorites, as well as large comets and asteroids that have led to catastrophic events in the geologic past. Originally considered only a curiosity, extraterrestrial matter found on Earth provides the only samples we have from comets, asteroids and other planets. Only recently mankind has started to actively collect extraterrestrial matter in space (Apollo program, Stardust mission) rather than to wait for its delivery to Earth. Still, most of our knowledge of the origin and evolution of our solar system is based on careful studies of meteorites, cosmic dust, and traces of large impact events in the geologic record such as the mass extinction that terminated the Cretaceous Period and led to the extinction of the dinosaurs. This book summarizes our current knowledge of the properties, origin, orbital evolution and accretion mechanism of extraterrestrial matter accreted on Earth and sheds light on accretion processes and fluxes in the geologic past. The chapters in the first part of the book are arranged in order to follow extraterrestrial matter from its origin in space, its orbital evolution on its way to Earth, its interaction with the Earth magnetosphere and atmosphere to its more or less violent collision with the Earth's surface. In the second part of the book several chapters deal with the present?day flux of cosmic dust and meteorites to Earth. Finally, several chapters deal with the reconstruction of the accretion history of extraterrestrial matter on Earth, starting with the most recent geologic past and ending with the very early, violent accretion period shortly after the formation of Earth, Moon and other solid planets in our solar system

Title  Nonlinear Dynamics of the Lithosphere and Earthquake Prediction 
Author(s)  KeilisBorok, Vladimir;Soloviev, Alexandre A 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2003. 
Description  XIII, 337 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides the reader with a holistic approach to earthquake modeling and prediction. The lithosphere is studied as a hierarchical nonlinear dissipative system in which the predictability of earthquakes, aftershock activities and the variation of seismic activity is analyzed. More specialized models taking into account regional aspects are investigated. The reader will learn to pose the problem of earthquake prediction using a successive stepbystep approach, narrowing down the time interval, territory and magnitude range where a strong earthquake can be expected. The book is written for researchers in geophysics and applied mathematics but may also serve as an advanced textbook for graduate students wishing to enter the field

Title  The Century of Space Science 
Author(s)  Bleeker, J.A;Geiss, Johannes;Huber, M 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2001. 
Description  XLIX, 1846 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  One of the most attractive features of the young discipline of Space Science is that many of the original pioneers and key players involved are still available to describe their field. Hence, at this point in history we are in a unique position to gain firsthand insight into the field and its development. To this end, The Century of Space Science, a scholarly, authoritative, reference book presents a chapterbychapter retrospective of space science as studied in the 20th century. The level is academic and focuses on key discoveries, how these were arrived at, their scientific consequences and how these discoveries advanced the thoughts of the key players involved. With over 90 worldclass contributors, such as James Van Allen, Cornelis de Jager, Eugene Parker, Reimar L??st, and Ernst Stuhlinger, and with a Foreword by Lodewijk Woltjer (past ESO Director General), this book will be immensely useful to readers in the fields of space science, astronomy, and the history of science. Both academic institutions and researchers will find that this major reference work makes an invaluable addition to their collection

Title  Continuum Methods of Physical Modeling : Continuum Mechanics, Dimensional Analysis, Turbulence 
Author(s)  Hutter, Kolumban;J??hnk, Klaus 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2004. 
Description  XV, 636 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The authors give an introduction into continuum thermomechanics, the methods of dimensional analysis and turbulence modeling. All these themes belong today to the everyday working method of not only environmental physicists but equally also those engineers, who are confronted with continuous systems of solid and fluid mechanics, soil mechanics and generally the mechanics and thermodynamics of heterogeneous systems. Here the reader finds a rigorous mathematical presentation of the material which is also seen as the foundation for environmentally related physics like oceanography, limnology, glaciology, climate dynamics and other topics in geophysics. Even though it is hoped that the book will also be used as a source book by researchers in the broad field of continuum physics, its intention is essentially to form a basis for teaching for upper level students majoring in mechanics, mathematics, physics and the classical engineering sciences. The intention is to equip the reader with the ability to understand the complex nonlinear modeling in material behaviour and turbulence closure as well as to derive or invent his own models
