This volume contains selected up-to-date professional papers prepared by specialists from various disciplines related to geosciences and water resources. Thirty papers discuss different aspects of environmental data modeling. It provides a forum bringing together contributions, both theoretical and applied, with special attention to Water in Ecosystems, Global Atmospheric Evolution, Space and Earth Remote Sensing, Regional Environmental Changes, Accessing Geoenvironmental Data and Ecotoxicological Issues. "Geosciences and Water Resources: Environmental Data Modeling" is now the fourth volume in the Series "Data and Knowledge in a Changing World". Launched by CODATA after the 14th International Conference of the Committee on Data for Sciences and Technology, in Chambery, the purpose of this new Series is to collect from widely varying fields a wealth of information pertaining to the intelligent exploitation of data in science and technology and to make that information available to a multidisciplinary community. The present series encompasses a broad range of contributions, including computer-related handling and visualization of data, to the major scientific, techÂ nical, medical and social fields. The titles of the previous published volumes are: The Information Revolution: Impact on Science and Technology. Modeling Complex Data for Creating Information. Industrial Information and Design Issues.
Through a combination of global data analysis and focused country level analysis, this timely book provides answers to the most pertinent country and industry specific questions defining the current relationship between technology, natural resources and economic growth. Shunsuke Managi takes a distinctive approach by focusing on the design and implementation of environmental regulations that encourage technological progress and, in doing so, looks at ways to ensure productivity improvements in the face of increasingly stringent environmental regulations and natural resource depletion. The findings in this important book demonstrate how successful environmental policies can contribute to efficiency by encouraging, rather than inhibiting, technological innovation. Technology, Natural Resources and Economic Growth will provide a valuable resource for a wide readership including postgraduate students, researchers, academics and policy makers working in the fields of environmental and ecological economics.
The importance of the nanoscale effects has been recognized in materials research for over fifty years, but it is only recently that advanced characterization and fabrication methods are enabling scientists to build structures atom-by-atom or molecule-by molecule. The understanding and control of the nanostructure has been, to a large extent, made possible by new atomistic analysis and characterization methods pioneered by transmission electron microscopy. "Nano and Microstructural Design of Advanced Materials" focuses on the effective use of such advanced analysis and characterization techniques in the design of materials.
Climate may be defined as the synthesis of long-term atmospheric conditions characteristic of a particular place. Consequently, the study of climate relies on sustained records of daily values. However, both location and equipment are variables and precise measurements may not be possible. There are occasions when an estimate rather than a measurement is necessary, as when gauging the unrecorded past or future. The value of applied climatology - the study of the impact of climate - lies in the analysis of measurements and estimates within the context of change. Climate Data and Resources provides a review of the theory and practice underlying current climactic research. The author describes the nature of atmospheric resources - solar radiation, wind and precipitation - and describes the specification, obtaining and treatment of climate data. Fully referenced and illustrated, Climate Data and Resources should prove a valuable resource to all those interested in the collection and analysis of climatic data.
