Colour Atlas of Glacial Phenomena

1st Edition

Michael J. Hambrey, Jürg C. Alean
June 01, 2018

Considering that glaciers and ice sheets cover about 10% of the Earth’s land surface in a world where human civilization is increasingly impacted by the effects of changing glacial activity, Colour Atlas of Glacial Phenomena presents itself as an indispensable guide for students, professionals, and...

Nanotechnology and the Resource Fallacy

1st Edition

Stephen L. Gillett
March 05, 2018

Dwindling global supplies of conventional energy and materials resources are widely thought to severely constrain, or even render impossible, a "first-world" lifestyle for the bulk of Earth’s inhabitants. This bleak prospect, however, is wrong. Current energy resources are used grotesquely...

Ganpat Singh Roonwal
October 25, 2017

The current scenario provides an ideal opportunity to confer higher priority to the marine resources of the Indian Ocean, particularly in terms of integrated management of the deep sea, shallow sea and coastal resources. This will maximize their potential in the sustainable development goal (SDG)...

Biogeography and Biodiversity of Western Atlantic Mollusks

1st Edition

Edward J. Petuch
October 23, 2017

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...

Geocryology: Characteristics and Use of Frozen Ground and Permafrost Landforms

1st Edition

Stuart A. Harris, Anatoli Brouchkov, Cheng Guodong
September 28, 2017

This book provides a general survey of Geocryology, which is the study of frozen ground called permafrost. Frozen ground is the product of cold climates as well as a variety of environmental factors. Its major characteristic is the accumulation of large quantities of ice which may exceed 90% by...
