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

Title:The Essence of Turbulence as a Physical Phenomenon [electronic resource] : With Emphasis on Issues of Paradigmatic Nature
Author(s): Arkady Tsinober
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book critically reexamines what turbulence really is, from a fundamental point of view and based on observations from nature, laboratories, and direct numerical simulations. It includes critical assessments and a comparativeanalysis of the key d evelopments, their evolution and failures, along with key misconceptions and outdated paradigms. The main emphasis is on conceptual and problematic aspects, physical phenomena, observations, misconceptions andunresolved issues rather than on conventional formalistic aspects, models, etc. Apart from the obvious fundamental importance of turbulent flows, this emphasis stems from the basic premise that without corresponding progress infundamental aspects there is little chance for progress in applications su ch as drag reduction, mixing, control and modeling of turbulence. More generally, there is also a desperate need to grasp the physical fundamentals of thetechnological processes in which turbulence plays a central role

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

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:Computational Challenges in the Geosciences addresses a cross-section of grand challenge problems arising in geoscience applications, including groundwater and petroleum reservoir simulation, hurricane storm surge, oceanography,volcanic eruptions and landslides, and tsunamis. Each of these applications gives rise to complex physical and mathematical models spanning multiple space-time scales, which can only be studied through computer simulation. The datarequired by the models is often highly uncerta in, and the numerical solution of the models requires sophisticated algorithms which are mathematically accurate, computationally efficient and yet must preserve basic physical propertiesof the models. This volume summarizes current methodologies and futu re research challenges in this broad and important field.

Title:Hear Where We Are [electronic resource] : Sound, Ecology, and Sense of Place
Author(s): Michael Stocker
Date:2013
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:Throughout history, hearing and sound perception have been typically framed in the context of how sound conveys information and how that information influences the listener. Hear Where We Are inverts this premise and examines howhumans and other hear ing animals use sound to establish acoustical relationships with their surroundings. This simple inversion reveals a panoply of possibilities by which we can re-evaluate how hearing animals use, produce, andperceive sound. Nuance in vocalizations become s ignals of enticement or boundary setting silence becomes a field ripe in auditory possibilities predator/prey relationships are infused with acoustic deception, and sounds that havebeen considered territorial cues become the fabric of cooperative acoustic al communities. This inversion also expands the context of sound perception into a larger perspective that centers on biological adaptation within acoustichabitats. Here, the rapid synchronized flight patterns of flocking birds and the tight maneuvering o f schooling fish becomes an acoustic engagement. Likewise, when stridulating crickets synchronize their summer evening chirrups, it hasmore to do with the cricket community monitoring their collective boundaries rather than individual crickets establishin g personal territory or breeding fitness. In Hear Where We Are the author continuously challenges manyof the bio-acoustic orthodoxies, reframing the entire inquiry into sound perception and communication. By moving beyond our common assumptions, many of t he mysteries of acoustical behavior become revealed, exposing a fresh and fertilepanorama of acoustical experience and adaptation. Praise for Hear Where We Are: Hear Where We Are is as poetic as it is informative - in the tradition of some of the best sci entific writing.

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.

Note:Since the mid-1970s, the computer has played an increasingly pivotal role in the field of ocean acoustics. Faster and less expensive than actual ocean experiments, and capable of accommodating the full complexity of the acousticproblem, numerical mod els are now standard research tools in ocean laboratories. The progress made in computational ocean acoustics over the last thirty years is summed up in this authoritative and innovatively illustrated new text.Written by some of the field's pioneers, all Fellows of the Acoustical Society of America, Computational Ocean Acoustics presents the latest numerical techniques for solving the wave equation in heterogeneous fluidsolid media. Theauthors discuss various computational schemes in detail, emphasizing t he importance of theoretical foundations that lead directly to numericalimplementations for real ocean environments. To further clarify the presentation, thefundamental propagation features of the techniques are illustrated in color. Computational Ocean A cousticsconveys the state-of-the-art of numerical modeling techniques for graduate and undergraduate students of acoustics, geology andgeophysics, applied mathematics, and ocean engineering. It is also an essential addition to the libraries of ocean resea rch institutions that use propagation models

Note:Numerical Ecology with R provides a long-awaited bridge between a textbook in Numerical Ecology and the implementation of this discipline in the R language. After short theoretical overviews, the authors accompany the usersthrough the exploration of the methods by means of applied and extensively commented examples. Users are invited to use this book as a teaching companion at the computer. The travel starts with exploratory approaches, proceeds with theconstruction of associationmatrices, then addre sses three families of methods: clustering, unconstrained and canonical ordination,and spatial analysis. All the necessary data files, the scripts used in the chapters, as well as theextra R functions and packages written by the authors, can be downloaded from a web page accessible through the Springer web site(http://adn.biol.umontreal.ca/~numericalecology/numecolR/). This book is aimed at professionalresearchers, practitioners, graduate students and teachers in ecology, environmental science and enginee ring, and in related fields such as oceanography, molecular ecology, agriculture and soil science, who already have a background ingeneral and multivariate statistics and wish to apply this knowledge to their data using the R language, as well as people w illing to accompany their disciplinary learning with practical applications.

Note:Most well known structures in planetary atmospheres and the Earths oceans are jets or fronts interacting with vortices on a wide range of scales. The transition from one state to another, such as in unbalanced or adjustmentflows, involves the generat ion of waves as well as the interaction of coherent structures with these waves. This book presents a fluid mechanics perspective to the dynamics of fronts and vortices and their interaction with waves ingeophysical flows. It provides a basic physical bac kground for modeling coherent structures in a geophysical context, and it gives essential information on advanced topics such as spontaneous wave emission and wavemomentum transfer ingeophysical flows. Based on a set of lectures by leading specialists, th is text is targeted at graduate students, researchers and engineers in geophysics and environmental fluid mechanics

Title:The Versatile Soliton [electronic resource]
Author(s): Alexandre T Filippov
Date:2010
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The soliton, a solitary wave impulse preserving its shape and strikingly similar to a particle, is one of the most fascinating and beautiful phenomena in the physics of nonlinear waves. In this classic book, the concept of thesoliton is traced from t he beginning of the last century to modern times, with recent applications in biology, oceanography, solid state physics, electronics, elementary particle physics, and cosmology. The Versatile Soliton is anappropriate title indeed. There is much new histo rical information in the bookThe book is written in a lively language and the physics presented in a clear, pedagogical style. Most of the chapters require only knowledge of fairlyelementary mathematics and the main ideas of soliton physics are well expla ined without mathematics at allYet it contains valuable information and offers a historical review of soliton physics that cannot be found elsewhere.Centaurus In summary, this book is a good elementary treatment of solitons and the related history of phys ics and mathematics, even for readers with little knowledge of advanced mathematics. For readers with the latter knowledge, itis still a good introduction to the physical ideas required for the understanding of solitons prior to the study of more mathemat ical treatments from other sources. Mathematical Reviews This engaging book is an excellentintroduction into the wonderful world of soliton mechanics. Zentralblatt Math No doubt, everyone can get new information from the book. First, the book is strongly recommended to young researchers. In a certain sense, the bookis unique and definitely will find a niche among numerous textbooks on solitons. Physicala

Title:Random Fields and Geometry [electronic resource]
Author(s): Robert J Adler
Jonathan E Taylor
Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph is devoted to a completely new approach to geometric problems arising in the study of random fields. The groundbreaking material in Part III, for which the background is carefully prepared in Parts I and II, is ofboth theoretical and p ractical importance, and striking in the way in which problems arising in geometry and probability are beautifully intertwined. The three parts to the monograph are quite distinct. Part I presents a user-friendlyyet comprehensive background to the general theory of Gaussian random fields, treating classical topics such as continuity and boundedness, entropy and majorizing measures, Borell and Slepian inequalities. Part II gives a quick reviewof geometry, both integral and Riemannian, to provide the reader with the material needed for Part III, and to give some new results and new proofs of known results along the way. Topics such as Crofton formulae, curvature measures forstratified manifolds, critical point theory, and tube formulae are covered. In fact, this is the only concise, self-contained treatment of all of the above topics, which are necessary for the study of random fields. The new approach inPart III is devoted to the geometry of excursion sets of random fields and the related Euler characteris tic approach to extremal probabilities. Random Fields and Geometry will be useful for probabilists and statisticians, and fortheoretical and applied mathematicians who wish to learn about new relationships between geometry and probability. It will be help ful for graduate students in a classroom setting, or for self-study. Finally, this text will serve as abasic reference for all those interested in the companion volume of the applications of the theory. These applications, to appear in a forthcoming volum e, will cover areas as widespread as brain imaging, physical oceanography, andastrophysics

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
