Distributed hydrologic modeling using GIS by Baxter E Vieux( file )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This monograph sets forth a unified approach and principles for modeling hydrologic processes distributed in space and time using geographic information systems (GIS). The focus of this Second Edition is on the principles of how to implement a distributed model using geospatial data to simulate hydrologic processes. Once we embark on fully distributed representations of hydrologic processes, conservation laws form the basis for modeling, and spatial data management becomes necessary. A physics-based approach involves the laws that govern the complexities of all the paths that water travels, from precipitation falling over a river basin to the flow in the river. Worldwide geospatial data has become readily available in GIS format. A modeling approach that can utilize this data for hydrology offers many possibilities. GIS data formats, spatial interpolation, and resolution have important effects on hydrologic simulation of the major hydrologic components of a watershed. Examples are provided that illustrate how to represent a watershed with spatially distributed data along with the many pitfalls inherent in such an undertaking. Since the First Edition, software development and applications have created a richer set of examples, and a deeper understanding of how to perform distributed hydrologic analysis and prediction. This Second Edition is oriented towards a commercially available distributed model called Vflo
Remote sensing of aquatic coastal ecosystem processes : science and management applications by Laurie Lee Richardson( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"The aquatic coastal zone is one of the most challenging targets for environmental remote sensing. Properties such as bottom reflectance, spectrally diverse suspended sediments and phytoplankton communities, diverse benthic communities, and transient events that affect surface reflectance (coastal blooms, runoff, etc.) all combine to produce an optical complexity not seen in terrestrial or open ocean systems. Despite this complexity, remote sensing is proving to be an invaluable tool for "Case 2" waters. This book presents recent advances in coastal remote sensing with an emphasis on applied science and management. Case studies of the operational use of remote sensing in ecosystem studies, monitoring, and interfacing remote sensing/science/management are presented. Spectral signatures of phytoplankton and suspended sediments are discussed in detail with accompanying discussion of why blue water (Case 1) algorithms cannot be applied to Case 2 waters. This book is targeted for scientists and managers interested in using remote sensing in the study or management of aquatic coastal environments. With only limited discussion of optics and theory presented in the book, such researchers might benefit from the detailed presentations of aquatic spectral signatures, and to operational management issues. While not specifically written for remote sensing scientists, it will prove to be a useful reference for this community for the current status of aquatic coastal remote sensing. n interactive CD accompanies this book containing the WASI program by Peter Gege (DLR, Germany). The WASI program allows users to interactively manipulate and view coastally relevant spectra. The CD also contains full color images of a selection of illustrations which are printed as black and white figures in the book."--Publisher's description

Natural disasters as interactive components of global-ecodynamics by K. I︠A︡ Kondratʹev( file )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"This comprehensive survey of our present-day understanding of large-scale natural catastrophes and their relation to interactive global ecodynamics provides a new approach to the study of global environmental changes. For the first time, all the information available from a wide range of differing disciplines is brought together. The theory of catastrophes is well developed in mathematics, but its application to the description of events and processes in the real environment requires the use of methods of system analysis, and it is this technique that is demonstrated in this book."--Page 4 of cover

Seriation, stratigraphy, and index fossils : the backbone of archaeological dating by Michael J O'Brien( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"In Seriation, Stratigraphy, and Index Fossils the authors discuss the method of typological cross dating and why it measures time discontinuously. They provide detailed descriptions and examples of each of the three techniques of seriation, noting that two of these techniques measure time, and thus cultural change, as a continuum." "Each method and technique of relative dating is placed in historical perspective, with particular focus on developments in North America. This approach allows a more complete understanding of the methods described, both in terms of analytical technique and disciplinary history. The text will appeal to all archaeologists, from graduate students to seasoned professionals."--Jacket

The text focuses on how knowledge about the solar cycle and Earth's climate is obtained. It includes discussion of observations, methods and the physics involved, with the necessary statistics and analysis also provided, including an examination of empirical relations between sunspots and the Earth's climate. The author reviews plausible physical mechanisms involved in any links between the solar cycle and the Earth's climate, emphasizing the use of established scientific methods for testing hypothesized relationships
An introduction to partial differential equations by Michael Renardy( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"Partial differential equations (PDEs) are fundamental to the modeling of natural phenomena, arising in every field of science. Consequently, the desire to understand the solutions of these equations has always had a prominent place in the efforts of mathematicians; it has inspired such diverse fields as complex function theory, functional analysis, and algebraic topology. Like algebra, topology, and rational mechanics, PDEs are a core area of mathematics." "This book aims to provide the background necessary to initiate work on a Ph. D. thesis in PDEs for beginning graduate students. Prerequisites include a truly advanced calculus course and basic complex variables. Lebesgue integration is needed only in Chapter 10, and the necessary tools from functional analysis are developed within the course. The book can be used to teach a variety of different courses."--Jacket

Spirituality and social work by Beth R Crisp( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"For much of the twentieth century, professional social work sought to distance itself from its religious origins with the consequence being that the role of spirituality in the lives of service users tended to be sidelined. Yet it is clear that many people begin to explore their spirituality precisely at times when they are trying to make sense of difficult life circumstances or experiences and may come into contact with social workers. In recent years, there has been an increasing understanding that in order to be relevant to the lives of people they work with, social workers need to go beyond their material needs, but there is little understanding of how spirituality can be sensitively incorporated into practice, especially when either practitioners or service users have no religious affiliation or there is no shared religious background
