Title:Percolation Theory for Flow in Porous Media [electronic resource]
Author(s): Allen Hunt
Robert Ewing
Behzad Ghanbarian
Date:2014
Edition:3rd ed. 2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This monograph presents, for the first time, a unified and comprehensive introduction to some of the basic transport properties of porous media, such as electrical and hydraulic conductivity, air permeability and diffusion. Theapproach is based on cr itical path analysis and the scaling of transport properties, which are individually described as functions of saturation. At the same time, the book supplies a tutorial on percolation theory for hydrologists,providing them with the tools for solving actu al problems. In turn, a separate chapter serves to introduce physicists to some of the language and complications of groundwater hydrology necessary for successful modeling. Theend-of-chapter problems often indicate open questions, which young researchers entering the field can readily start working on. This significantly revised and expanded third edition includes in particular two new chapters: one onadvanced fractal-based models, and one devoted to the discussion of various open issues such as the role of diffusion vs. advection, preferential flow vs. critical path, universal vs. non-universal exponents for conduction, and lastbut not least, the overall influence of the experimental apparatus in data collection and theory validation. The book is suitab le for advanced graduate courses, with selected problems and questions appearing at the end of eachchapter. [...] I think the book is an important work that will guide soil scientists, hydrologists, and physicists to gain a better qualitative and quantita tive understanding of multitransport properties of soils. (Marcel G. Schaap,Soil Science Society of America Journal, May-June, 2006)

Title:Geoengineering Responses to Climate Change [electronic resource] : Selected Entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology
Author(s): Tim Lenton
Naomi Vaughan
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: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

Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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. People from other fields (e.g.geology, geography, paleoecology, phylogenetics, anthropology, the social and education sciences, etc.) may also benefit from the materials presente d in this book. The three authors teach numerical ecology, both theoretical andpractical, to a wide array of audiences, in regular courses in their Universities and in short courses given around the world. Daniel Borcard is lecturer of Biostatistics and E cology and researcher in Numerical Ecology at Universitde Montral, Qubec, Canada. Franois Gillet is professor of Community Ecology and Ecological Modelling at Universit de Franche-Comt,

At the same time the tutorial aspects of the first few chapters have been considerably improved and the number of models, experiments and range of medium properties considered have been increased.Topics discussed for the first time in detail in this edition are advanced topological aspects of percolation theo ry that serve as a basis for examining dispersion aspects in porous media. The book is suitable for advanced graduatecourses, with selected problems and questions appearing at the end of each chapter.
