Michael Schreckenberg
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The 6th International Conference on Pedestrian and Evacuation Dynamics conference (PED2012) showcased research on human locomotion. This book presents the proceedings of PED2012. Humans have walked for eons our drive to settlethe globe began with a w alk out of Africa. However, much remains to discover. As the world moves toward sustainability while racing to assess and accommodate climate change, research must provide insight on the physical requirements ofwalking, the dynamics of pedestrians on the move and more. We must understand, predict and simulate pedestrian behaviour, to avoid dangerous situations, to plan for emergencies, and not least, to make walking more attractive andenjoyable. PED2012 offered 70 presentations and keynotes and 70 poster presentations covering new and improved mathematical models, describing new insights on pedestrian behaviour in normal and emergency cases and presenting researchbased on sensors and advanced observation methods. These papers offer a starting point for in novative new research, building a strong foundation for the next conference and for future research

Title:Harvesting Space for a Greener Earth [electronic resource]
Author(s): Greg Matloff
C Bangs
Les Johnson
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:What was our planet like in years past? How has our civilization affected Earth and its ecology? Harvesting Space for a Greener Planet, the Second Edition of Paradise Regained: The Regreening of the Earth, begins by discussingthese questions, and the n generates a scenario for the restoration of Earth. It introduces new and innovative ideas on how we could use the Solar System and its resources for terrestrial benefit. The environmental challenges that faceus today cannot be resolved by conservation a nd current technologies alone. Harvesting Space highlights the risk of humankinds future extinction from environmental degradation. Population growth, global climate change, andmaintaining sustainability of habitats for wildlife are all considered, among other issues. Rather than losing heart, we need to realize that the solutions to these problems lie in being good stewards of the planet and in thedevelopment of space. Not only will the solutions offered here avert a crisis, they will also provide the ba sis for continued technological and societal progress. Tapping the resources of near-Earth asteroids will lead to methods ofdiverting those asteroids that threaten Earth. Space-based terrestrial power generation systems will work synergistically with Eart h-based conservation. This book needs to be read urgently and widely, if we are to save ourselves fromenvironmental disaster, reduce the risk of catastrophic cosmic impacts, and build a prosperous and sustainable future for all the creatures of Earth

Title:Physics of Societal Issues [electronic resource] : Calculations on National Security, Environment, and Energy
Author(s): David Hafemeister
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides the reader with essential tools needed to analyze complex societal issues and demonstrates the transition from physics to modern-day laws and treaties. This second edition features new equation-orientedmaterial and extensive data s ets drawing upon current information from experts in their fields. Problems to challenge the reader and extend discussion are presented on three timely issues: National Security:Weapons, Offense, Defense, Verification, Nuclear Proliferation, Terrorism Environment: Air/Water, Nuclear, Climate Change, EM Fields/Epidemiology Energy: Current Energy Situation, Buildings, SolarBuildings, Renewable Energy, Enhanced End-Use Efficiency, Transportation, Economics Praise for the first edition: This insight is n eeded in Congress and the Executive Branch. Hafemeister, a former Congressional fellow with wideWashington experience, has written a book for physicists, chemists and engineers who want to learn science and policy on weapons, energy, and the environment. Scientists who want to make a difference will want this book. RichardScribner, first Director, Congressional Science and Engineering Fellow Program, AAAS Hafemeister shows how much one can understand about nuclear weapons and missile issues through simpl e back-of-the-envelope calculations. He alsoprovides compact explanations of the partially successful attempts that have been made over the past 60 years to control these weapons of mass destruction. Hopefully, Physics of Societal Issues will help interes t a new generation ofphysicists in continuing this work. Frank von Hippel, Professor, Princeton, former Assistant Director, National Security, White House, OSTP Energy policy must be quantitative.

Title:Bayesian Hierarchical Space-Time Models with Application to Significant Wave Height [electronic resource]
Author(s): Erik Vanem
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book provides an example of a thorough statistical treatment in space and time of ocean wave data. It is demonstrated how the flexible framework of Bayesian hierarchical space-time models can be applied to oceanographicprocesses such as signific ant wave height in order to describe dependence structures and uncertainties in the data. This monograph is a research book and it is in some sense cross-disciplinary. The methodology itself is firmly rootedin the statistical research tradition, based on probability theory and stochastic processes. However, the methodology has been applied to a problem within physical oceanography, analysing data for significant wave height, which are ofcrucial importance to ocean engineering disciplines. Indeed, the stat istical properties of significant wave height are important for the design, construction and operation of ships and other marine and coastal structures. Furthermore,the book addresses the question of whether climate change has an effect of the ocean wave climate, and if so what these effects might be. Thus, this book is an important contribution to the on-going debate on climate change, itsimplications and how to adapt to a changing climate, with a particular focus on the maritime industries and the marin e environment. This book should be of general interest to anyone with an interest in statistical modelling ofenvironmental processes, and in particular to those with a particular interest in the ocean wave climate. It is written on a level that should be understandable to everyone with a basic background in statistics or elementarymathematics, and an introduction to some basic concepts is given in appendices for the uninitiated reader. The intended readership incudes students and professionals involved in statistics, oceanography, ocean engineering,environmental research, climate sciences and risk assessment. Moreover, different stakeholders within the maritime industries such as design offices, classif

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Failure by the international community to make substantive progress in reducing CO2 emissions, coupled with recent evidence of accelerating climate change, has brought increasing urgency to the search for additional remediationapproaches. This book p resents a selection of state-of-the-art geoengineering methods for deliberately reducing the effects of anthropogenic climate change, either by actively removing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere or bydecreasing the amount of sunlight absorbed at the E arths surface. These methods contrast with more conventional mitigation approaches which focus on reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, especially carbon dioxide. Geoengineeringtechnologies could become a key tool to be used in conjunction with emission s reduction to limit the magnitude of climate change. Featuring authoritative, peer-reviewed entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science andTechnology, this book presents a wide range of climate change remediation technologies. Examines the po tential of geoengineering technologies to contribute to the goal of restricting global warming to within 2C of preindustriallevels Discusses carbon dioxide removal (CDR) and solar radiation management (SDR) Places the technologies discussed in their prope r social, political, and ethical contexts Provides valuable insights for audiences ranging fromresearchers and industry experts to policy makers and university-level students

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Modern Earth System Monitoring represents a fundamental change in the way scientists study the Earth System. In Oceanography, for the past two centuries, ships have provided the platforms for observing. Expeditions on thecontinents and Earths poles a re land-based analogues. Fundamental understanding of current systems, climate, natural hazards, and ecosystems has been greatly advanced. While these approaches have been remarkably successful, the needto establish measurements over time can only be made using Earth observations and observatories with exacting standards and continuous data. The 19 peer-reviewed contributions in this volume provide early insights into this emergingview of Earth in both space and time in which change is a critical componen t of our growingunderstanding. Presents 19 authoritative, peer-reviewed entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology Covers a widerange of data collection platforms, including satellite remote sensing, aerial surveys, and land- a nd ocean-based monitoring stations Features a glossary of key terms and a concise definition of the subject for each contributionWritten for an audience of undergraduate and graduate students, as well as professionals in academia, industry, and government

Note:The Earth's average temperature has risen by 1.4F over the past century, and computer models project that it will rise much more over the next hundred years, with significant impacts on weather, climate, and human society. Manyclimate scientists attr ibute these increases to the buildup of greenhouse gases produced by the burning of fossil fuels and to the anthropogenic production of short-lived climate pollutants. Climate Change Modeling Methodologies:Selected Entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustain ability Science and Technology provides readers with an introduction to the tools and analysis techniques used by climate change scientists to interpret the role of these forcing agentson climate. Readers will also gain a deeper understanding of the stren gths and weaknesses of these models and how to test and assess them.

Title:Astronomy and the Climate Crisis [electronic resource]

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Climate change is one of the most hotly debated issues of today. Increasing global temperatures will impact all of us. There are more questions than answers, however, and sweeping statements on the subject made by public figures,often with little sci entific understanding, only further confuses public opinion. Astronomical factors, apart from passing references to the Sun, are given short shrift in relation to climate change. However, they might be amongst themajor determinants of it. A presentation o f those that have been studied that some scientists suspect might be involved are featured in this book. Included is an in-depth look at the physics of climate itself, the potential effectsof the Sun, solar storms, sunspots, solar variability, the magneto sphere, solar cycles, influences of nearby planets, orbital factors, cosmic rays, possible galactic influences, monitoring from space, even climate change elsewhere inthe solar system, and much more. The greatest challenge climate change scientists face i s determining actual world climate statistics and analyzing the historical record. Another challenge lies in evaluating all of the various theoriesthat have been proposed. Is the current climate crisis completely human-induced, as some very credible sourc es say, or only partly human-induced.? Is carbon dioxide even the real threat? If not, what is? Astronomy and the ClimateCrisis is a serious attempt to reconcile the various scientific climate change studies, highlighting in particular the astronomical fa ctors that are possibly hidden culprits. This book can help you to become informed and join thedebate. You might be very surprised at what you find out!

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume presents a comprehensive perspective on the global scientific, technological, and societal impact of nanotechnology since 2000, and explores the opportunities and research directions in the next decade to 2020. Thevision for the future of nanotechnology presented here draws on scientific insights from U.S. experts in the field, examinations of lessons learned, and international perspectives shared by participants from 35 countries in a series ofhigh-level workshops organized byMike Roco o f the National Science Foundation (NSF), along with a team of American co-hosts that includes Chad Mirkin, Mark Hersam, Evelyn Hu, and several other eminent U.S. scientists. The studyperformed in support of the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI ) aims to redefine the R&D goals for nanoscale science and engineering integration and to establish nanotechnology as a general-purpose technology in the nextdecade. It intends to provide decision makers in academia, industry, and government with a nanote chnology community perspective of productive and responsible paths forward for nanotechnology R&D. Nanotechnology Research Directionsfor Societal Needs in 2020 is a wonderful piece of work. This book reflects the bible for nanotechnology for the next deca des for the whole world. Well done. (Prof. Marcel van de Voorde, Delft University of Technology, Delft,November 2010) This book provides a comprehensive vision and an overarching roadmap for the nanotechnology community. It comes at a great time as we mov e into the next decade of nano-enabled commercialization. (Vincent Caprio,Executive Director, NanoBusiness Commercialization Association, November 2010). The National Nanotechnology Initiative story could provide a useful case study for newer research eff orts into fields such as synthetic biology,renewable energy or adaptation to climate change.

Title:Turbulent Combustion Modeling [electronic resource] : Advances, New Trends and Perspectives

Date:2011
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Turbulent combustion sits at the interface of two important nonlinear, multiscale phenomena: chemistry and turbulence. Its study is extremely timely in view of the need to develop new combustion technologies in order to addresschallenges associated w ith climate change, energy source uncertainty, and air pollution. Despite the fact that modeling of turbulent combustion is a subject that has been researched for a number of years, its complexity implies thatkey issues are still eluding, and a theoretica l description that is accurate enough to make turbulent combustion models rigorous and quantitative for industrial use is still lacking. In this book, prominent experts review most of theavailable approaches in modeling turbulent combustion, with particul ar focus on the exploding increase in computational resources that has allowed the simulation of increasingly detailed phenomena. The relevant algorithms arepresented, the theoretical methods are explained, and various application examples are given. The book is intended for a relatively broad audience, including seasoned researchers and graduate students in engineering, appliedmathematics and computational science, engine designers and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) practitioners, scientists at fundi ng agencies, and anyone wishing to understand the state-of-the-art and the future directions of thisscientifically challenging and practically important field

Title:The Second Law of Economics [electronic resource] Energy, Entropy, and the Origins of Wealth

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Nothing happens in the world without energy conversion and entropy production. These fundamental natural laws are familiar to most of us when applied to the evolution of stars, biological processes, or the working of an internalcombustion engine, but what about industrial economies and wealth production, or their constant companion, pollution? Does economics conform to the First and the Second Law of Thermodynamics? In this important book, ReinerKmmel takes us on a fascinating tour of these laws and their influence on natural, technological, and social evolution. Analyzing economic growth in Germany, Japan, and the United States in light of technological constraints oncapital, labor, and energy, Professor Kmmel upends conventional economic wisdom by showing that the productive power of energy far outweighs its small share of costs, while for labor just the opposite is true. Wealth creation byenergy conversion is accompanied and limited by polluting emissions that are coupled to entropy production. Th ese facts constitute the Second Law of Economics. They take on unprecedented importance in a world that is facing peakoil, debt-driven economic turmoil, and threats from pollution and climate change. They complement the First Law of Economics: Wealth is a llocated on markets, and the legal framework determines the outcome. By applying the First andSecond Law we understand the true origins of wealth production, the issues that imperil the goal of sustainable development, and the technological options that a re compatible both with this goal and with natural laws. The criticalrole of energy and entropy in the productive sectors of the economy must be realized if we are to create a road map that avoids a Dark Age of shrinking natural resources, environmental d egradation, and increasing social tensions

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Both global warming and oil shortage can be solved by controlled fusion, a clean power source that will serve mankind for millennia. The idea of hydrogen fusion as well as its difficulties are presented in non-technicallanguage to dispel the notion t hat fusion is always 50 years away. This book also summarizes the evidence for climate change and explains the principles of both fossil and green energy sources to show that fusion is the bestalternative for central-station power in the near term as well as the far future. Praise for An Indispensable Truth: How Fusion Power Can Save the Planet: In this study Professor Chen outlines the underlying physics, recent progressin achieving advanced plasmas and magnetic confinement, and hopes for the future. He recognizes the difficulties that remain in engineering a fusion reactor, but he remains optimistic regarding ultimate success, yet fearful of theconsequences were we to fail.- James R. Schlesinger, former Chairman, Atomic Energy Commission Director, Centr al Intelligence Agency Secretary of Defense and Secretary of Energy With lots of detail and examples, Chen brings thetechnical topic of fusion to life, making the book a great read for scientists and nonscientists alike.- Representative Rush Holt (D-NJ) P rofessor Chen has opened the door to energy survival for our globe. His insightful analysismakes the case for fusion energy, and he conveys both its complexity and its promise. This book is a must for all those who are concerned about the energy future of our species.- Raymond L Orbach, former Undersecretary for Science,U.S. Department of Energy This is an important book for anyone who wishes to understand the greatest challenge we face. Frank Chen makes the science of fusion and energy clear, compelling, and hugely enjoyable.- Steven Cowley,Director and CEO, Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority

Date:2007
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book provides a critical assessment of the current knowledge and indicates new challenges which are brought about at present times by fighting man-made and natural hazards in transient analysis of structures. The latterconcerns both permanently f ixed structures, such as those built to protect people and/or sensitive storage material (e.g. military installations) or special structures found in transportation systems (e.g. bridges, tunnels), and movingstructures (such as trains, planes, ships or ca rs). The present threat of terrorist attacks or accidental explosions, the climate change which brings strong stormy winds or even the destructive earthquake motion that occurs inpreviously inactive regions or brings about tsunamis, are a few examples of the kind of applications addressed in this work. Problems of such diversity cannot be placed within a single traditional scientific discipline, but call forthe expertise in probability theory for quantifying the cause, interaction problems for better unde rstanding the physical nature of the problems, as well as modeling and computational techniques for improving the representation ofinelastic behavior mechanisms and providing the optimal design

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The world faces serious difficulties in obtaining the energy that will be needed in coming decades for a growing population, especially given the problem of climate change caused by fossil fuel use. This book presents a view ofnuclear energy as an im portant carbon-free energy option. It discusses the nuclear fuel cycle, the types of reactors used today and proposed for the future, nuclear waste disposal, reactor accidents and reactor safety, nuclear weaponproliferation, and the cost of electric power . To provide background for these discussions, the book begins with chapters on the history of the development and use of nuclear energy, the health effects of ionizing radiation, and thebasic physics principles of reactor operation. The text has been rew ritten and substantially expanded for this edition, to reflect changes that have taken place in the eight years since the publication of the first edition and toprovide greater coverage of key topics. These include the Yucca Mountain repository plans, des igns for next-generation reactors, weapons proliferation and terrorism threats, the potential of alternatives to nuclear energy, andcontroversies about low-level radiation. Acclaim for the first edition: The book provides a superb background for scientist s and those in technical fields. It provides probably all the information that many people, includinggovernment policy makers, will ever need...[a] well-written and balanced book. This book is recommended for anyone who wants a broad technical background on nuclear energy. -American Journal of Physics
