Environmental oceanography : an introduction to the behaviour of coastal waters by Tom Beer( Book )

27 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 767 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.

Geophysical hazards : minimizing risk, maximizing awareness by Tom Beer( Book )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume 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 organized societal response can prevent a hazard becoming a disaster
Australian-American match tests by Don J Latham( Book )

Risk science and sustainability : science for reduction of risk and sustainable development of society by Tom Beer( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 95 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
