Title:Preventive Methods for Coastal Protection [electronic resource] : Towards the Use of Ocean Dynamics for Pollution Control
Author(s): Tarmo Soomere
Ewald Quak
Date:2013
Publisher:Heidelberg : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The aim of the book is to present for non-specialist researchers as well as for experts a comprehensive overview of the background, key ideas, basic methods, implementation details and a selection of solutions offered by a noveltechnology for the opt imisation of the location of dangerous offshore activities in terms of environmental criteria, as developed in the course of the BalticWay project. The book consists of two parts. The first part introduces thebasic principles of ocean modeling and depict s the long way from the generic principles to the practical modeling of oil spills and of the propagation of other adverse impacts. The second part focuses on the techniques for solving theinverse problem of the quantification of offshore areas with respe ct to their potential to serve as a source of environmental danger to vulnerable regions (such as spawning, nursing or also tourist areas). The chapters are writtenin a tutorial style they are mostly self-contained and understandable for non-specialist r esearchers and students. They are carefully peer-reviewed by international experts. The goal was to produce a book that highlights all keysteps, methods, models and data sets it is necessary to combine in order to produce a practically usable technology a nd/or decision support system for a particular sea region. Thus the book is useful not only as a description and amanual of this particular technology but also as a roadmap highlighting the complicated technical issues of ocean modeling for practical purp oses. It describes the approaches taken by the authors in an understandable way and thus isuseful for educational purposes, such as a course in industrially and environmentally relevant applications of ocean modeling

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Biomimetics in Materials Science provides a comprehensive theoretical and practical review of biomimetic materials with self-healing, self-lubricating and self-cleaning properties. These three topics are closely related andconstitute rapidly developi ng areas of study. The field of self-healing materials requires a new conceptual understanding of this biomimetic technology, which is in contrast to traditional engineering processes such as wear andfatigue. Biomimetics in Materials Science is the first monograph to be devoted to these materials. A new theoretical framework for these processes is presented based on the concept of multi-scale structure of entropy andnon-equilibrium thermodynamics, together with a detailed review of the available technolog y. The latter includes experimental, modeling, and simulation results obtained on self-healing/lubricating/cleaning materials since theiremergence in the past decade. Describes smart, biomimetic materials in the context of nanotechnology, biotechnology, a nd self-organization Covers self-healing, self-lubricating, and self-cleaning materials with applications to greentechnologies in areas such as energy, biomedical devices, and defense Presents a unified approach by leading researchers in the field coverin g both theoretical and practical issues

Note:Sunlight profoundly influences the Earth's atmosphere and biosphere. Nature fuels the evolution of all living things, their visual systems, and the manner in which they adapt, accommodate, and habituate. Sun luminance measurementsserve as data to cal culate typical changes in the daily, monthly, and annual variability characteristics of daylight. Climate-based sky luminance patterns are used as models in predicting daylighting calculation and computer programsapplied in architecture and building desig n. Historically, daylight science and daylighting technology has prioritized photometric methods of measurements, calculation, and graphical tools aimed at predicting or evaluating thedaylighting of architectural design alternatives. However, due to a hei ghtened awareness of general health and well-being, sunlight exposure and freedom from visual discomfort while undertaking visual tasks are now equally prioritized.Therefore, in order to assure optimal environmental quality, daylighting technology must be based on sound science. Daylight Science and Daylighting Technology, by Richard Kittler, Miroslav Kocifaj, and Stanislav Darula, sketches theentire evolution of daylight science from atmospheric science through apt visual workplace psychophysics

Note:The fundamental insight and the technological & environmental relevance of metastable systems have given a strong impetus from the last decade development of extreme pressures experimental techniques, from the GPa region to thechallenging negative pr essures domain. The ultimate verification of theoretical models and reliable equations for portraying basic properties for such systems seems to be possible only when including temperature and pressure paths.This volume presents a set of papers related to novel findings on the glass transition phenomenon, phase transitions in liquid crystals, critical mixtures, bioliquids, geophysical system which can reveal surprising secret featuresonly when using extreme pressures. This can be illustrated by the link b etween colloidal and molecular glassformers, the universal onset of the non-trivial dynamics in glasses, demistification of the secondary relaxation or novelfindings associated with liquid - liquid near critical transitions in critical mixture, liquid cry stals and in one component liquid, including water Particularly noteworthy is the emerging possibility of applications in geophysical andenvironment- relevant system as well as in technological application from material engineering, pharmacy industry, to biotechnology

The ASI brought together a diverse group of experts who bridged the fields of virology and biology, biophysics,chemistry and physics. Prominent lecturers a nd students from around the world representant a total of 24 countries participated in the NATO ASI organized by Professors Joseph Puglisi (Stanford University, USA) and Alexander Arseniev(Moscow, RU). The central hypothesis underlying this ASI was that i nterdisciplinary research, merging principles of physics, chemistry and biology, can drive new discovery in detecting and fighting bioterrorism agents, lead to cleanerenvironments, and help propel development in NATO partner countries. The ASI merged the related disciplines of biophysics, biochemistry and molecular structure to treat, detect, and understand emerging infectious diseases. It addressedthe treatment and detection of bioterrorism agents, and focused on critical partner country priorities in bi otechnology, materials, drug discovery and the environment. It provided crossroads discussing new technologies in biophysicsand structural biology, their implications pathogen detection and treatment and their role in partner country development. The ASI allowed deep and wide-ranging discussion between lecturers and students, providing overviews of keyareas and links between them.

Note:This book assembles chapters from experts in the Biophysics of RNA to provide a broadly accessible snapshot of the current status of this rapidly expanding field. The 2006 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to thediscoverers of RNA int erference, highlighting just one example of a large number of non-protein coding RNAs. Because non-protein coding RNAs outnumber protein coding genes in mammals and other higher eukaryotes, it is now thought thatthe complexity of organisms is correlated w ith the fraction of their genome that encodes non-protein coding RNAs. Essential biological processes as diverse as cell differentiation, suppression of infecting viruses and parasitictransposons, higher-level organization of eukaryotic chromosomes, and g ene expression itself are found to largely be directed by non-protein coding RNAs. The biophysical study of these RNAs employs X-ray crystallography, NMR, ensembleand single molecule fluorescence spectroscopy, optical tweezers, cryo-electron microscopy, a nd other quantitative tools. This emerging field has begun to unravel the molecular underpinnings of how RNAs fulfill their multitude of rolesin sustaining cellular life. The physical and chemical understanding of RNA biology that results from biophysical studies is critical to our ability to harness RNAs for use in biotechnology and human therapy, a prospect that hasrecently spawned a multi-billion dollar industry

Title:Statistical Methods in Bioinformatics [electronic resource] : An Introduction
Author(s): Warren J Ewens

Date:2005
Edition:Second Edition
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Advances in computers and biotechnology have had a profound impact on biomedical research, and as a result complex data sets can now be generated to address extremely complex biological questions. Correspondingly, advances in thestatistical methods n ecessary to analyze such data are following closely behind the advances in data generation methods. The statistical methods required by bioinformatics present many new and difficult problems for the researchcommunity. This book provides an introduction to some of these new methods. The main biological topics treated include sequence analysis, BLAST, microarray analysis, gene finding, and the analysis of evolutionary processes. The mainstatistical techniques covered include hypothesis testing and estimatio n, Poisson processes, Markov models and Hidden Markov models, and multiple testing methods. The second edition features new chapters on microarray analysis and onstatistical inference, including a discussion of ANOVA, and discussions of the statistical th eory of motifs and methods based on the hypergeometric distribution. Much material has been clarified and reorganized. The book is written soas to appeal to biologists and computer scientists who wish to know more about the statistical methods of the fiel d, as well as to trained statisticians who wish to become involved with bioinformatics. The earlier chapters introducethe concepts of probability and statistics at an elementary level, but with an emphasis on material relevant to later chapters and often not covered in standard introductory texts. Later chapters should be immediately accessible to thetrained statistician. Sufficient mathematical background consists of introductory courses in calculus and linear algebra. The basic biological concepts that are used are explained, or can be understood from the context, and standardmathematical concepts are summarized in an Appendix. Problems are provided at the end of each chapter allowing the reader to de
