A world without ice by H. N Pollack( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the effects of global warming by looking carefully at the potential consequences of a world without ice. The author traces the effect of mountain glaciers on supplies of drinking water and agricultural irrigation, as well as the current results of melting permafrost and shrinking Arctic sea ice--a situation that has degraded the habitat of numerous animals and sparked an international race for seabed oil and minerals. Catastrophic possibilities loom, including rising sea levels and subsequent flooding of low-lying regions worldwide, and the ultimate displacement of millions of coastal residents. This book answers the most urgent questions about this pending crisis, laying out the necessary steps for managing the unavoidable and avoiding the unmanageable
Uncertain science ... : uncertain world by H. N Pollack( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: Scientific uncertainty puzzles many people. The puzzlement arises when scientists have more than one answer, and disagree among themselves. This book helps people find their way through this maze of scientific contradiction and uncertainty. By acquainting them with the ways that uncertainty arises in science, how scientists accommodate and make use of uncertainty, and how they reach conclusions in the face of uncertainty, the book enables readers to confidently evaluate uncertainty from their own perspectives, in terms of their own experiences

Collection and analysis of seismic wave propagation data. supplement 4: two-dimensional waves in an infinite medium bounded internally by a harmonically pressurized ellipse( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper studies the role of the cavity shape in determining the two-dimensional far-field radiation from a pressurized source. The radiation patterns are obtained for both the longitudinal and transverse waves radiating from an elliptical region that varies from a line source to a circular source. The results of several cases show that: (1) for all noncicular boundzries the shear wave exists and consistently shows a four-lobed pattern of alternate polarity. (2) the ratio of wavelength to cavity ecicumference and the cavity shape (ellipticity) have a strong influence on the radiation patter. (Author)
