Hazards Analysis: Reducing the Impact of Disasters, Second Edition

John C. Pine

September 10, 2014

The impacts of natural and man-made disasters have increased exponentially over the past few decades. Moreover, with our global interconnectedness and the growing scale of disasters, today's catastrophic disasters can have regional, national, and even global economic consequences.Following in the...

Fractured Rock Hydrogeology

Fractured Rock Hydrogeology

John M. Sharp

June 05, 2014

Fractured rocks extend over much of the world, cropping out in shields, massifs, and the cores of major mountain ranges. They also form the basement below younger sedimentary rocks; at depth; they represent a continuous environment of extended and deep regional groundwater flow. Understanding of...

GIS Cartography: A Guide to Effective Map Design, Second Edition

Gretchen N. Peterson

May 23, 2014

In the five years since the publication of the first edition of A Guide to Effective Map Design, cartography and software have become further intertwined. However, the initial motivation for publishing the first edition is still valid: many GISers enter the field without so much as one hour of...

Biogeography and Biodiversity of Western Atlantic Mollusks

Biogeography and Biodiversity of Western Atlantic Mollusks

Edward J. Petuch

April 02, 2013

Shallow water marine molluscan faunas are distributed in a pattern of distinct, geographically definable areas. This makes mollusks ideal for studying the distribution of organisms in the marine environment and the processes and patterns that control their evolution. Biogeography and Biodiversity...

Soils and Human Health

Eric C. Brevik, Lynn C. Burgess

December 12, 2012

Despite the connections between soils and human health, there has not been a great amount of attention focused on this area when compared to many other fields of scientific and medical study. Soils and Human Health brings together authors from diverse fields with an interest in soils and human...

Geomorphology

Geomorphology

Mateo Gutierrez

December 07, 2012

This book provides a detailed coverage of the landforms of Planet Earth and the processes that shaped them. The study of these morphologies, some of which formed during past geological periods under environmental conditions very different from those of today, makes it possible to reconstruct the...

Statistical Geoinformatics for Human Environment Interface

Wayne L. Myers, Ganapati P. Patil

July 27, 2012

Statistical Geoinformatics for Human Environment Interface presents two paradigms for studying both space and interface with regard to human/environment: localization and multiple indicators. The first approach localizes thematic targets by treating space as a pattern of vicinities, with the...
