Geophysical hazards minimizing risk, maximizing awareness by Tom Beer( )
15 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume, written by the Hazards Science Team of the International Year of Planet Earth, brings together some of the most influential international scientists dealing with Natural Hazards and society's response to natural hazards. It recognises that hazards, like poverty, will always be with us but that concerted and organised societal response can prevent a hazard becoming a disaster. By bringing together geoscientists, social scientists and those concerned with the administration of international science and international disaster reduction, this book details the state-of-the-science as well as the state-of-the-response in natural hazards. The contents of this volume fall into four parts: Part 1 deals with the IYPE Hazards Theme and its relation to society, emphasising that implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action requires a strong emphasis on human societies, human security, and that this can be achieved only through appropriate communication. Part 2 focuses on the response of the international scientific community. Part 3 concentrates on geophysical risk and sustainability by considering climate and climate change as well as the theory and the praxis involved in hazards, their prevention and mitigation. Part 4 relates to the observation and assessment of geo-hazards and risk
Environmental oceanography : an introduction to the behaviour of coastal waters by Tom Beer( Book )
9 editions published in 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Environmental oceanography by Tom Beer( Book )
11 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Environmental Oceanography: An Introduction of the Behaviour of the Coastal Water covers the physical environment in coastal water. This book is composed of thirteen chapters, and begins with an overview of the coastal oceanography field. The succeeding chapters deal with the natural processes along the shore, the concept of wave and tides, water composition and circulation, and boundary layers. These topics are followed by discussions on ocean water flow, coastal meteorology, estuaries, and reefs. The final chapters present the application of direct and remote sensing and data analysis.

Risk science and sustainability : science for reduction of risk and sustainable development of society by Tom Beer( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contains peer-reviewed papers and case studies derived from invited papers. The contributions address two key problems: (i) natural, technological and environmental risks, risk prevention and sustainable development; and (ii) science, risk and society. The papers provide an invaluable insight into, and archival record of the relationship between risk, science, and society in a world that has become more turbulent since the tragic events of 11 September 2001. The papers from scientists, policy makers, and practitioners cover the topics of risk, sustainability, science, and society and are of value for natural and social scientists, teachers, students, economists, and politicians. The book can also be read with profit by authorities responsible for public safety, risk management, and risk mitigation plans, and insurance companies
