Offshore Geotechnical Engineering

Mark Randolph, Susan Gourvenec
April 16, 2017

Design practice in offshore geotechnical engineering has grown out of onshore practice, but the two application areas have tended to diverge over the last thirty years, driven partly by the scale of the foundation and anchoring elements used offshore, and partly by fundamental differences in...

April 06, 2017

Rip Currents: Beach Safety, Physical Oceanography, and Wave Modeling is the culmination of research from over 100 coastal scientists, engineers, forecast meteorologists, lifeguard chiefs, and other practitioners from around the world who participated in the 1st International Rip Current Symposium....

Numerical Simulation in Hydraulic Fracturing: Multiphysics Theory and Applications

Xinpu Shen, William Standifird
March 17, 2017

The expansion of unconventional petroleum resources in the recent decade and the rapid development of computational technology have provided the opportunity to develop and apply 3D numerical modeling technology to simulate the hydraulic fracturing of shale and tight sand formations. This book...

Advances in Passive Microwave Remote Sensing of Oceans

Victor Raizer
March 16, 2017

This book demonstrates the capabilities of passive microwave technique for enhanced observations of ocean features, including the detection of (sub)surface events and/or disturbances while laying out the benefits and boundaries of these methods. It represents not only an introduction and complete...

The Oceanographer's Companion: Essential Nautical Skills for Seagoing Scientists and Engineers

George Maul
March 03, 2017

Scientists and engineers embarking on their first voyage for oceanographic or meteorological research are often unprepared for the experience. Going to sea involves learning a new language – that of the seaman. This is necessary for clear communications, for the safety and well-being of the members...

Ocean Structures: Construction, Materials, and Operations

Srinivasan Chandrasekaran, Arvind Kumar Jain
December 29, 2016

This book addresses the concepts of material selection and analysis, choice of structural form, construction methods, environmental loads, health monitoring, non-destructive testing, and repair methodologies and rehabilitation of ocean structures. It examines various types of ocean and offshore...

Manganese Removal from Groundwater: Role of Biological and Physico-Chemical Autocatalytic Processes

J.H. Bruins
December 15, 2016

In The Netherlands, Belgium and other European countries, manganese is removed by conventional groundwater treatment with aeration and rapid (sand) filtration. Such a treatment process is easy to operate, cost effective and sustainable, because it does not make use of strong oxidants such as O3,...

Oceanography and Marine Biology: An Annual Review, Volume 54

R.N. Hughes, D. J. Hughes, I. P. Smith, A.C. Dale
December 13, 2016

Ever-increasing interest in oceanography and marine biology and their relevance to global environmental issues create a demand for authoritative reviews summarizing the results of recent research. Oceanography and Marine Biology: An Annual Review has catered to this demand since its founding by the...

Flood Hazard Mapping: Uncertainty and its Value in the Decision-making Process

Micah Mukungu Mukolwe
December 06, 2016

Computers are increasingly used in the simulation of natural phenomena such as floods. However, these simulations are based on numerical approximations of equations formalizing our conceptual understanding of flood flows. Thus, model results are intrinsically subject to uncertainty and the use of...
