Note:This book gives a comprehensive presentation of our present understanding of the Earth's Hydrological cycle and the problems, consequences and impacts that go with this topic. Water is a central component in the Earth's system.It is indispensable for life on Earth in its present form and influences virtually every aspect of our planet's life support system. On relatively short time scales, atmospheric water vapor interacts with the atmospheric circulationand is crucial in forming the Earth's climate zones. Water vapor is the most powerful of the greenhouse gases and serves to enhance the tropospheric temperature. The dominant part of available water on Earth resides in the oceans.Parts are locked up in the land ice on Greenland and Antarctica and a s maller part is estimated to exist as groundwater. If all the ice over the land and all the glaciers were to melt, the sea level would rise by some 80 m. Incomparison, the total amount of water vapor in the atmosphere is small it amounts to ~ 25 kg/m2, or the equivalent of 25 mm water for each column of air. Yet atmospheric water vapor is crucial for the Earths energy balance. Thebook gives an up to date presentation of the present knowledge. Previously published in Surveys in Geophysics, Volume 35, No. 3, 2014
Contents:Foreword

Title:Constructal Law and the Unifying Principle of Design [electronic resource]

Note:Design happens everywhere, whether in animate objects (e.g., dendritic lung structures, bacterial colonies, and corals), inanimate patterns (river basins, beach slope, and dendritic crystals), social dynamics (pedestrian trafficflows), or engineered systems (heat dissipation in electronic circuitry). This design in nature often takes on remarkably similar patterns, which can be explained under one unifying Constructal Law. This book explores theunifying power of the Constructal Law and its applicatio ns in all domains of design generation and evolution, ranging from biology and geophysics to globalization, energy, sustainability, and security. The Constructal Law accountsfor the universal tendency of flow systems to morph into evolving configurations that provide greater and easier access over time. The Constructal Law resolves the many and contradictory ad hoc statements of optimality, enddesign, and destiny in nature, such as minimum and maximum entropy production and minimum and maximum flow resist ance, and also explains the designs that are observed and copied in biomimetics. Constructal Law and the UnifyingPrinciple of Design covers the fundamentals of Constructal Theory and Design, as well as presenting a variety of state-of-the-art applications . Experts from the biological, physical and social sciences demonstrate the unification ofall design phenomena in nature, and apply this knowledge to novel designs in modern engineering, such as vascularization for self-healing and self-cooling materials for aircraft, and tree fins and cavities for heat transferenhancement. Captures a world-wide movement toward design as science Defines the place of the Constructal Law in physics and thermodynamics Features an interdisciplinaryapproach that spans phys ics, biology, engineering and the social sciences Demonstrates that a single law of physics governs all the pheno

Note:Magnetized plasmas in the universe exhibit complex dynamical behavior over a huge range of scales. The fundamental mechanisms of energy transport, redistribution and conversion occur at multiple scales. The driving mechanismsoften include energy accu mulation, free-energy-excited relaxation processes, dissipation and self-organization. The plasma processes associated with energy conversion, transport and self-organization, such as magnetic reconnection,instabilities, linear and nonlinear waves, wave-p article interactions, dynamo processes, turbulence, heating, diffusion and convection represent fundamental physical effects. They demonstrate similar dynamical behavior in near-Earthspace, on the Sun, in the heliosphere and in astrophysical environments. 'Multi-scale Dynamical Processes in Space and Astrophysical Plasmas' presents the proceedings of the International Astrophysics Forum Alpbach 2011. Thecontributions discuss the latest advances in the exploration of dynamical behavior in space plasmas env ironments, including comprehensive approaches to theoretical, experimental and numerical aspects. The book will appeal toresearchers and students in the fields of physics, space and astrophysics, solar physics, geophysics and planetary science.

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Thomas Gold (1920-2004) had a curious mind that liked to solve problems. He was one of the most remarkable astrophysicists in the second half of the twentieth century, and he attracted controversy throughout his career. Based ona full-length autobiog raphy left behind by Thomas Gold, this book was edited by the astrophysicist and historian of science, Simon Mitton (University of Cambridge). The book is a retrospective on Golds remarkable life. He fled fromVienna in 1933, eventually settling in England and completing an engineering degree at Trinity College in Cambridge. During the war, he worked on naval radar research alongside Fred Hoyle and Hermann Bondi which, in an unlikelychain of events, eventually led to his working with them on steady-state cosmology. In 1968, shortly after their discovery, he provided the explanation of pulsars as rotating neutron stars. In his final position at Cornell, he and hiscolleagues persuaded the US Defense Department to fund the conversion of the giant radio teles cope at Arecibo in Puerto Rico into a superb instrument for radio astronomy. Golds interests covered physiology, astronomy, cosmology,geophysics, and engineering. Written in an intriguing style and with an equally intriguing foreword by Freeman Dyson, thi s book constitutes an important historical document, made accessible to all those interested in the history ofscience.

Publisher:Heidelberg : Physica-Verlag HD
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:New technologies allow us to handle increasingly large datasets, while monitoring devices are becoming ever more sophisticated. This high-tech progress produces statistical units sampled over finer and finer grids. As themeasurement points become clo ser, the data can be considered as observations varying over a continuum. This intrinsic continuous data (called functional data) can be found in various fields of science, including biomechanics,chemometrics, econometrics, environmetrics, geophysics, med icine, etc. The failure of standard multivariate statistics to analyze such functional data has led the statistical community to develop appropriate statistical methodologies,called Functional Data Analysis (FDA). Today, FDA is certainly one of the most m otivating and popular statistical topics due to its impact on crucial societal issues (health, environment, etc). This is why the FDA statistical communityis rapidly growing, as are the statistical developments . Therefore, it is necessary to organize reg ular meetings in order to provide a state-of-art review of the recent advances in this fascinating area. This book collects selectedand extended papers presented at the second International Workshop of Functional and Operatorial Statistics (Santander, Spa in, 16-18 June, 2011), in which many outstanding experts on FDA will present the most relevant advances inthis pioneering statistical area. Undoubtedly, these proceedings will be an essential resource for academic researchers, master students, engineers, and practitioners not only in statistics but also in numerous related fields ofapplication.

Title:Solar Neutrons and Related Phenomena [electronic resource]
Author(s): Lev Dorman
Date:2010
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents the first comprehensive compilation and review of the extensive body of experimental and theoretical material on solar neutrons and related phenomena published in the scientific literature over the last sixtyyears. Phenomena relate d to solar neutrons are more specifically: the decay products of solar neutrons solar gamma rays generated in processes like nuclear reactions between solar energetic charged particles and matter of the solaratmosphere, as well as by the capture of solar neutrons by hydrogen atoms in the solar atmosphere the propagation of solar neutrons, solar gamma rays and other secondary particles through the solar photosphere, chromosphere and corona,as well as through interplanetary space and through the Earth's atm osphere. Models and simulations of particle acceleration, interactions, and propagation processes show that observations of solar neutrons and gamma rays in space andin the Earth's atmosphere yield essential and unique information on the source function o f energetic solar particles, as well as on the chemical composition and density distribution of plasma in the solar atmosphere. The resultsdescribed in the book may also be useful for astrophysical studies of other stars and different astrophysical object s, as well as for space weather problems. The book will serve as a reference work for researchers and students in solarphysics, plasma, neutron, and gamma ray physics, as well as in cosmic ray physics, space science, geophysics and those researching space weather problems

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is a major revision of Numerical Methods for Wave Equations in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics the new title of the second edition conveys its broader scope. The second edition is designed to serve graduate students andresearchers studying geoph ysical fluids, while also providing a non-discipline-specific introduction to numerical methods for the solution of time-dependent differential equations. The methods considered are those at the foundation ofreal-world atmospheric or ocean models, with th e focus being on the essential mathematical properties of each method. The fundamental character of each scheme is examined in prototypical fluid-dynamical problems like tracer transport,chemically reacting flow, shallow-water waves, and waves in an inter nally stratified fluid. The book includes exercises and is well illustrated with figures linking theoretical analyses to results from actual computations. Changes fromthe first edition include new chapters, discussions and updates throughout. Dale Durran is Professor and Chair of Atmospheric Sciences and Adjunct Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of Washington. Reviews from the FirstEdition: This book will no doubt become a standard within the atmospheric science community, but its comfort able applied mathematical style will also appeal to many interested in computing advective flows and waves. It is acontemporary and worthy addition to the still-sparse list of quality graduate-level references on the numerical solution of PDEs. SIAM Revie w, 2000, 42, 755-756 (by David Muraki) This book presents an extensive overview of pastand current numerical methods used in the context of solving wave systems It is directed primarily at flows that do not develop shocks and focuses on standard fluid pr oblems including tracer transport, the shallow-water equationsand the Euler equations the book is well organized and written and fills a long-standing void for collected material on numer

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:What do combustion engines, fusion reactors, weather forecast, ocean flows, our sun, and stellar explosions in outer space have in common? Of course, the physics and the length and time scales are vastly different in all cases,but it is also well kno wn that in all of them, on some relevant length scales, the material flows that govern the dynamical and/or secular evolution of the systems are chaotic and often unpredictable: they are said to be turbulent. Theinterdisciplinary aspects of turbulence are brought together in this volume containing chapters written by experts from very different fields, including geophysics, astrophysics, and engineering. It covers several subjects on whichconsiderable progress was made during the last decades, from questi ons concerning the very nature of turbulence to some practical applications. These subjects include: a basic introduction into turbulence, statistical mechanics andnonlinear dynamics, turbulent convection in stars, atmospheric turbulence in the context of numerical weather predictions, magnetohydrodynamic turbulence, turbulent combustion with application to supernova explosions, and finally thenumerical treatment of the multi-scale character of turbulence

Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This second edition is a great enhancement of literature which will help the reader get deeper into the specific topics. There are new sections included such as space weather data sources and examples, new satellite missions, andthe latest results. A t the end a comprehensive index is given which will allow the reader to quickly find his topics of interest. The Sun and Space weather are two rapidly evolving topics. The importance of the Sun for the Earth, lifeon Earth, climate and weather processes wa s recognized long ago by the ancients. Now, for the first time there is a continuous surveillance of solar activity at nearly all wavelengths. These data can be used to improve ourunderstanding of the complex Sun-Earth interaction. The first chapters of t he book deal with the Sun as a star and its activity phenomena as well as its activity cycle in order to understand the complex physics of the Sun-Earth system.The reader will see that there are many phenomena but still no definite explanations and models exist for many of them. Other topics are the influences on the Earths atmosphere, long and short term climate variations. The lastchapters discuss the protection against enhanced radiation environment in view of upcoming manned missions to the Moon and M ars, and the threat from space debris, asteroids and meteoroids. Since the field is quite interdisciplinary,the book will be of interest to scientists working in different fields such as solar physics, geophysics, and space physics
