Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The second edition of Solar System Astrophysics: Planetary Atmospheres and the Outer Solar System provides a timely update of our knowledge of planetary atmospheres andthe bodies of the outer solar system and their analogs inother planetary systems. This volume begins with an expanded treatment of the physics, chemistry, and meteorology of the atmospheres of the Earth, Venus, and Mars, moving on to their magnetospheres and then to a full discussion of thegas and ice giants and their properties. From here, attention switches to the small bodies of the solar system, beginning with the natural satellites. Then comets, meteors, meteorites, and asteroids are discussed in order, and thevolume concludes with the origin and evolution of our solar system. Fin ally, a fully revised section on extrasolar planetary systems puts the development of our system in a wider and increasingly well understood galactic context. Allof the material is presented within a framework of historical importance. This book and its s ister volume, Solar System Astrophysics: Background Science and the Inner Solar system, are pedagogically well written, providing clearlyillustrated explanations, for example, of such topics as the numerical integration of the Adams-Williamson equation, t he equations of state in planetary interiors and atmospheres, Maxwells equations as applied to planetaryionospheres and magnetospheres, and the physics and chemistry of the Habitable Zone in planetary systems. Together, the volumes form a comprehensive te xt for any university course that aims to deal with all aspects of solar andextra-solar planetary systems. They will appeal separately to the intellectually curious who would like to knowjust how far our knowledge of the solar system has progressed in rec ent years

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Beyond the four centuries of sunspot observation and the five decades during which artificial satellites have monitored the Sun that is to say for 99.99999% of the Suns existence our knowledge of solar history dependslargely on analogy with kindred main sequence stars, on the outcome of various kinds of modelling, and on indirect measures of solar activity. They include the analysis of lunar rocks and meteorites for evidence of solar flares andother components of the solar cosmic-ray (SCR) flux, an d the measurement of cosmogenic isotopes in wood, stratified ice and marine sediments to evaluate changes in the galactic cosmic-ray (GCR) flux and thus infer changes in thesheltering magnetic fields of the solar wind. In addition, shifts in the global at mospheric circulation which appear to result from cyclic fluctuations in solar irradiance have left their mark in river sediments and inthe isotopiccomposition of cave deposits. In this volume the results these sources have already produced have been summ arised, paying special attention to those that reflect processes in different parts of the Suns interior andthatdisplayperiodicities and trends which may enable us to forecast future large-scale environmental changes

Note:The book presents the application of statistical methods to climatological data on temperature and precipitation. It provides specific techniques for treating series of yearly, monthly and daily records. The results potentialrelevance in the climate context is discussed. The methodical tools are taken from time series analysis, from periodogram and wavelet analysis, from correlation and principal component analysis, and from categorical data and event-timeanalysis. The applied models are - among othe rs - the ARIMA and GARCH model, and inhomogeneous Poisson processes. Further, we deal with a number of special statistical topics, e.g. the problem of trend-, season- andautocorrelation-adjustment, and with simultaneous statistical inference. Programs in R and data sets on climate series, provided at the authors homepage, enable readers (statisticians, meteorologists, other natural scientists) toperform their own exercises and discover their own applications

Title:Special Functions of Mathematical (Geo-)Physics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Willi Freeden
Martin Gutting
Date:2013
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Special functions enable us to formulate a scientific problem by reduction such that a new, more concrete problem can be attacked within a well-structured framework, usually in the context of differential equations. A goodunderstanding of special fun ctions provides the capacity to recognize the causality between the abstractness of the mathematical concept and both the impact on and cross-sectional importance to the scientific reality. The specialfunctions to be discussed in this monograph vary great ly, depending on the measurement parameters examined (gravitation, electric and magnetic fields, deformation, climate observables, fluid flow, etc.) and on the respective fieldcharacteristic (potential field, diffusion field, wave field). The differential equation under consideration determines the type of special functions that are needed in the desired reduction process. Each chapter closes with exercisesthat reflect significant topics, mostly in computational applications. As a result, readers are not only directly confronted with the specific contents of each chapter, but also with additional knowledge on mathematical fields ofresearch, where special functions are essential to application. All in all, the book is an equally valuable resource for educa tion in geomathematics and the study of applied and harmonic analysis. Students who wish to continue withfurther studies should consult the literature given as supplements for each topic covered in the exercises

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Predicting the Future: Completing Models of Observed Complex Systems provides a general framework for the discussion of model building and validation across a broad spectrum of disciplines. This is accomplished through thedevelopment of an exact path integral for use in transferring information from observations to a model of the observed system. Through many illustrative examples drawn from models in neuroscience, fluid dynamics, geosciences, andnonlinear electrical circuits, the concepts are exempl ified in detail. Practical numerical methods for approximate evaluations of the path integral are explored, and their use in designing experiments and determining a model'sconsistency with observations is investigated. Using highly instructive examples, t he problems of data assimilation and the means to treat them are clearly illustrated. This book will be useful for students and practitioners ofphysics, neuroscience, regulatory networks, meteorology and climate science, network dynamics, fluid dynamics, and other systematic investigations of complex systems

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:Le Verrier was a superb scientist. His discovery of Neptune in 1846 made him the most famous astronomer of his time. He produced a complete theory of the motions of the planets which served as a basis for planetary ephemeris for afull century. Doing this, he discovered an anomaly in the motion of Mercury which later became the first proof of General Relativity. He also founded European meteorology. However his arrogance and bad temper created many enemies, andhe was even fired from his position of Di rector of the Paris Observatory

Note:This book presents in a concise way the Mie theory and its current applications. It begins with an overview of current theories, computational methods, experimental techniques, and applications of optics of small particles. Thereis also some biograph ic information on Gustav Mie, who published his famous paper on the colour of Gold colloids in 1908. The Mie solution for the light scattering of small spherical particles set the basis for more advanced scatteringtheories and today there are many methods to calculate light scattering and absorption for practically any shape and composition of particles. The optics of small particles is of interest in industrial, atmospheric, astronomic andother research. The book covers the latest developments in divers fields in scattering theory such as plasmon resonance, multiple scattering and optical force

Title:Phase Change in Mechanics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Michel Frmond
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Predictive theories of phenomena involving phase change with applications in engineering are investigated in this volume, e.g. solid-liquid phase change, volume and surface damage, and phase change involving temperaturediscontinuities. Many other pha se change phenomena such as solid-solid phase change in shape memory alloys and vapor-liquid phase change are also explored. Modeling is based on continuum thermo-mechanics. This involves a renewedprinciple of virtual power introducing the power of the mi croscopic motions responsible for phase change. This improvement yields a new equation of motion related to microscopic motions, beyond the classical equation of motion formacroscopic motions. The new theory sensibly improves the phase change modeling. Fo r example, when warm rain falls on frozen soil, the dangerous black ice phenomenon can be comprehensively predicted. In addition, novel equationspredict the evolution of clouds, which are themselves a mixture of air, liquid water and vapor

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The center of our Solar System is a star, one among billions of stars in our own galaxy. This star, which we call the Sun, gives rise to all life on Earth, is the driver of the photosynthesis in plants, and is the source of allfood, energy, and fossi l fuels on Earth. For us humans, the Sun as seen with the naked eye appears as a static and quiet yellow disk in the sky. However, it is in fact a stormy and variable star and contributes much more than onlylight and heat. It is the source of the beautifu l northern and southern lights and can affect our technology-based society in many ways. The Sun is, like astronomy in general, a good entrance to natural science, since it affects us inso many ways and connects us to many other fields of science, such as physics, chemistry, biology, and meteorology. The book includes additional material on Springer Extras, a large number of animations and video material. A PowerPointpresentation of the book is also included there as a useful resource for teachers

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.

Note:The book provides an overview of the numerical modelling of radiation fields in multidimensional geometries. It covers advances and problems in the mathematical treatment of the radiative transfer equation, a partialintegro-differential equation of h igh dimension that describes the propagation of the radiation in various fields. Highly accurate and fast methods with sound analytical foundations are particularly emphasized. The volume should notonly serve as a basis for the selection of suitable metho ds for actual radiative transfer problems in disciplines from astronomy and climatology to radiological diagnostics but also be a starting point for additional mathematicalinvestigations on many still unknown aspects of the transfer equation

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

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Sun Recorded Through History is a text that reconstructs past solar activity based on information from historical documents, complementing studies using other techniques. Historical accounts describing phenomena related tosolar activity, such as aurorae, sunspots, and corona observed during solar eclipses can be used as a proxy of solar activity in the past. These descriptions are reviewed, on the one hand providing primary material for the history ofastronomy and, on the other, verifying or refu ting current ideas concerning the time variability of the Sun on the scale of centuries. Documents predating the discovery of photography (around 1840) that contain information on thesetopics are highlighted, but modern drawings are also included. The low er temporal limit of study is set by the archaeoastronomy of prehistoric sources. In addition, the necessary background on the Sun is provided, with special emphasison observing techniques and the influences of telescopes and the Earth's atmosphere on the data obtained from solar observations. This book contains over two hundred figures, many of which are reproductions of historical documents andhand drawings. It is an essential resource on the evolution of solar observations and will be of interest to st udents and researchers in solar physics, as well as astronomers and historians of science

Note:The THEMIS mission aims to determine the trigger and large-scale evolution of substorms by employing five identical micro-satellites which line up along the Earth's magnetotail to track the motion of particles, plasma, and wavesfrom one point to anot her and for the first time, resolve space-time ambiguities in key regions of the magnetosphere on a global scale. The primary goal of THEMIS is to elucidate which magnetotail process is responsible for substormonset at the region where substorm auroras ma p: (i) local disruption of the plasma sheet current (current disruption) or (ii) the interaction of the current sheet with the rapid influx of plasma emanating from reconnection. The probesalso traverse the radiation belts and the dayside magnetosphere, a llowing THEMIS to address additional baseline objectives.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:We all know that Earths population is growing at an alarming rate, and vital resources are becoming scarce. There simply isnt enough space to grow the food the bulging human populations will need in the future. An energycrisis is also upon us. What h appens when the oil runs out or becomes too costly to support us in the lifestyles to which weve become accustomed? What do we do? There are no easy solutions. Planned population growth would certainlybe a possible solution, but there are probably already too many mouths too feed, and few nations would be willing to pass or enforce laws limiting their countrys birth rate. Some scientists have suggested the answer lies inhumankinds spacefaring nature and fantastic engineering capabilities. We know that the re are other terrestrial bodies in our Solar System that share some features with Earth. Can they be made habitable, or at least be used to growfood or supply energy to Earths expanding populations? What would it take? Which of those bodies are our best h ope? Can we create an atmosphere where there is none or change a poisonous atmosphere to one we can breathe? These andother questions concerning modern-day realities and the future possibilities of terraformingthe science of making of new worlds (even ext rasolar ones) habitable for humansare tackled in this engrossing and revealing study byMartin Beech

Note:This volume collects a number of theoretical and experimental lectures on various aspects of transport and mixing of active and passive particles in geophysical flows. Transports in fluids can be approached from two complementaryperspectives: in the Eulerian view of mixing, the focus is on the concentration field - advection stetches and folds the concentration field and sharpens the gradients, while diffusion smoothes the field. In the Langrangian view, fluidparcels are followed around as they move with the flow, experiencing chaotic or stochastic motion. Both pictures are considered in the present lectures, with passive particles carried freely by the flow and reactive particles, wherechemically or biologically induced reactions change the characte r of the particles

Note:Fractional Brownian motion (fBm) has been widely used to model a number of phenomena in diverse fields from biology to finance. This huge range of potential applications makes fBm an interesting object of study. fBm represents anatural one-parameter extension of classical Brownian motion therefore it is natural to ask if a stochastic calculus for fBm can be developed. This is not obvious, since fBm is neither a semimartingale (except when H = ), nor aMarkov process so the classical mathematical machi neries for stochastic calculus are not available in the fBm case. Several approaches have been used to develop the concept of stochastic calculus for fBm. The purpose of this book is topresent a comprehensive account of the different definitions of stocha stic integration for fBm, and to give applications of the resulting theory. Particular emphasis is placed on studying the relations between the different approaches.Readers are assumed to be familiar with probability theory and stochastic analysis, althou gh the mathematical techniques used in the book are thoroughly exposed and some of the necessary prerequisites, such as classical white noisetheory and fractional calculus, are recalled in the appendices. This book will be a valuable reference for graduat e students and researchers in mathematics, biology, meteorology, physics, engineering and finance. Aspects of the bookwill also be useful in other fields where fBm can be used as a model for applications

The methods and results of extrasolar planet searc hes, the distinctions between stars, brown dwarfs, and planets, and the origins of planetary systems are examined. Historical introductions precede the development anddiscussion in most chapters. A series of challenges, useful as homework assignments or a s focusing aids, are presented at the end of each chapter. The contents of Solar System Astrophysics have been field-tested by students for manyyears. Eugene F. Milone and William J. F. Wilson have written a unique book that presents an up-to-date overvie w on all essential topics based on extensive experience in the classroom

Note:Variations in solar activity, as revealed by variations in the number of sunspots, have been observed since ancient times. To what extent changes in the solar output may affect planetary climates, though, remains today more thanever a subject of cont roversy. In 2000, the SSSI volume on Solar Variability and Climate reviewed the to-date understanding of the physics of solar variability and of the associated climate response. The present volume on SolarVariability and Planetary Climates provides an ove rview of recent advances in this field, with particular focus at the Earth's middle and lower atmosphere. The book structure mirrors that of the ISSI workshop held in Bern in June 2005,the collection of invited workshop contributions and of complementary introductory papers synthesizing the current understanding in key research areas such as middle atmospheric processes, stratosphere-troposphere dynamical coupling,tropospheric aerosols chemistry, solar storm influences, solar variability physics, and terr estrial climate analogues

Note:Tsunamis and hurricanes have had a devastating impact on the population living near the coast during the year 2005. The calculation of the power and intensity of tsunamis and hurricanes are of great importance not only forengineers and meteorologists but also for governments and insurance companies. This book presents new research on the mathematical description of tsunamis and hurricanes. A combination of old and new approaches allows to derive anonlinear partial differential equation of fifth order describing the steepening up and the propagation of tsunamis. The description includes dissipative terms and does not contain singularities or two valued functions. The equivalenceprinciple of solutions of nonlinear large gas dynamics waves and of soluti ons of water wave equations will be used. An extension of the continuity equation by a source term due to evaporation rates of salt seawater will help tounderstand hurricanes. Detailed formula, tables and results of the calculations are given

Note:Particularly intense lightning discharges can produce transient luminous events above thunderclouds, termed sprites, elves and jets. These short lived optical emissions in the mesosphere can reach from the tops of thundercloudsup to the ionosphere th ey provide direct evidence of coupling from the lower atmosphere to the upper atmosphere. Sprites are arguably the most dramatic recent discovery in solar-terrestrial physics. Shortly after the first groundbased video recordings of sprites, observations o n board the Space Shuttle detected sprites and elves occurring all around the world. These reports led to detailed sprite observations in North America, South America, Australia, Japan,and Europe. Subsequently, sprites were detected from other space platf orms such as the International Space Station and the ROCSAT satellite. During the past 15 years, more than 200 contributions on sprites have been published in thescientific literature to document this rapidly evolving new research area

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Our planet exists within a space environment affected by constantly changing solar atmosphere producing cosmic particles and electromagnetic waves. This space weather profoundly influences the performance of our technologybecause we primarily use two means for transmitting information and energy namely, electromagnetic waves and electricity. On an everyday basis, we have developed methods to cope with the normal conditions. However, the sun remains afiery star whose 'angry' outbursts can potentially destroy spacecrafts, kill astronauts, melt electricity transformers, stop trains, and generally wreak havoc with human activities. Space Weather is the developing field withinastronomy that aims at predicting the suns violent activity and minimizing the i mpacts on our daily lives. Space Weather, Environment, and Societies explains why our technological societies are so dependent on solar activity and howthe Sun disturbs the transmission of information and energy. Footnotes expand specific points and the a ppendices facilitate a more thorough command of the physics involved. This beautifully illustrated book is written for astronomy andnature enthusiasts as well as for the undergraduate/graduate level readers who would like to better master the physics of n ear space

Title:Functional Data Analysis [electronic resource]
Author(s): J. O Ramsay

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:Scientists and others today often collect samples of curves and other functional observations. This monograph presents many ideas and techniques for such data. Included are expressions in the functional domain of such classics aslinear regression, pr incipal components analysis, linear modeling, and canonical correlation analysis, as well as specifically functional techniques such as curve registration and principal differential analysis. Data arising in realapplications are used throughout for both m otivation and illustration, showing how functional approaches allow us to see new things, especially by exploiting the smoothness of the processes generating the data. The data sets exemplifythe wide scope of functional data analysis they are drawn from g rowth analysis, meteorology, biomechanics, equine science, economics, and medicine. The book presents novel statistical technology, much of it based on the authors ownresearch work, while keeping the mathematical level widely accessible. It is designed to appeal to students, to applied data analysts, and to experienced researchers it will have value both within statistics and across a broadspectrum of other fields. This second edition is aimed at a wider range of readers, and especially those who would li ke to apply these techniques to their research problems. It complements the authors' other recent volume AppliedFunctional Data Analysis: Methods and Case Studies. In particular, there is an extended coverage of data smoothing and other matters arising in the preliminaries to a functional data analysis. The chapters on the functional linearmodel and modeling of the dynamics of systems through the use of differential equations and principal differential analysis have been completely rewritten and extended to include new developments. Other chapters have been revisedsubstantially, often to give more weight to examples and practical considerations. Jim Ramsay is Professor of Psychology at McGill Unive
