Solar Energy Sciences and Engineering Applications

Napoleon Enteria, Aliakbar Akbarzadeh
April 30, 2017

Solar energy is available all over the world in different intensities. Theoretically, the solar energy available on the surface of the earth is enough to support the energy requirements of the entire planet. However, in reality, progress and development of solar science and technology depends to a...

Renewable Energy Yearbook 2011: Renergy FNP

Agra FNP Research
April 28, 2017

The intensive exploration of natural resources has begun to take a heavy toll on the environment, economic models appear to have been worn out, and major cultural and technological transformations are underway. The energy issue is particularly important in the context of the technological and...

Chlorophyll Fluorescence: Understanding Crop Performance — Basics and Applications

Mohamed H. Kalaji, Vasilij N. Goltsev, Krystyna Żuk-Gołaszewska, Marek Zivcak, Marian Brestic
April 25, 2017

Chlorophyll a fluorescence is a tool for evaluating plant responses to stress conditions. Fluorescence can be used in plant phenotyping and breeding programs to monitor biotic and abiotic stresses including mineral deficiencies, soil salinity, and pathogenic diseases. Chlorophyll Fluorescence:...

Organic Compounds in Soils, Sediments & Sludges: Analysis and Determination

T Roy Crompton
April 16, 2017

The increasing awareness of the effects of pollutants in the eco-system and on the development of suitable methods of analysis has stimulated a lot of research recently. This volume comprehensively discusses the range of methods available for the analysis and determination of organic compounds in...

The intensive exploration of natural resources has begun to take a heavy toll on the environment, economic models appear to have been worn out, and major cultural and technological transformations are underway. The energy issue is particularly important in the context of the technological and...

The Phytopathogen: Evolution and Adaptation

Abhijeet Ghatak, Mohammad Ansar
April 05, 2017

So often new phytopathogens emerge and appear primarily in acute form and then take a chronic form; such populations, however, in general have a limited appearance because of the lack of suitable environmental conditions. The emergence of new pathogens needs to be explored in the light of their...

Unsaturated Soil Mechanics in Geotechnical Practice

Geoffrey E Blight
March 31, 2017

There are other books on unsaturated soil mechanics, but this book is different. Unsaturated soil mechanics is only one aspect of a continuous range of soil mechanics studies that extends from the rheology of high water content soil slurries to the mechanics of soft soils, to stiff saturated soils,...

Sustainable Energy Solutions in Agriculture

Jochen Bundschuh, Guangnan Chen
March 31, 2017

Sustainability in agriculture and associated primary industries, which are both energy-intensive, is crucial for the development of any country. Increasing scarcity and resulting high fossil fuel prices combined with the need to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, make the improvement of...

Handbook of Tropical Residual Soils Engineering

Bujang B.K. Huat, David G. Toll, Arun Prasad
March 31, 2017

Residual soils are found in many parts of the world. Like other soils, they are used extensively in construction, either to build upon, or as construction material. They are formed when the rate of rock weathering is more rapid than transportation of the weathered particles by e.g., water, gravity...

Remote Sensing of Drought: Innovative Monitoring Approaches

Brian D. Wardlow, Martha C. Anderson, James P. Verdin
March 31, 2017

Remote Sensing of Drought: Innovative Monitoring Approaches presents emerging remote sensing-based tools and techniques that can be applied to operational drought monitoring and early warning around the world. The first book to focus on remote sensing and drought monitoring, it brings together a...

Global Forest Monitoring from Earth Observation

Frederic Achard, Matthew C. Hansen
March 31, 2017

Forests provide a large range of beneficial services, including tangible ones such as timber and recreation, and intangible services such as climate regulation, biodiversity, and watershed protection. On the other hand, forests can also be considered roadblocks to progress that occupy space more...

The Global Forest Sector: Changes, Practices, and Prospects

Eric Hansen, Rajat Panwar, Richard Vlosky
March 29, 2017

Changes in production, demand, supply, and trade patterns; the impact of green building and bioenergy on industry practices and policy infrastructure; and new economies with production advantages and large consumption bases all present challenges and opportunities in the forest sector. With...
