Radiophysical and Geomagnetic Effects of Rocket Burn and Launch in the Near-the-Earth Environment

Leonid F. Chernogor, Nathan Blaunstein
September 30, 2017

Radiophysical and Geomagnetic Effects of Rocket Burn and Launch in the Near-the-Earth Environment describes experimental and theoretical studies on the effects of rocket burns and launchings on the near-the-Earth environment and geomagnetic fields. It illuminates the main geophysical and...

Spectral Methods in Geodesy and Geophysics

Christopher Jekeli
September 28, 2017

The purpose of the book is to provide a rigorous treatment of spectral analysis using Fourier-based techniques in the geosciences, specifically geodesy and geophysics that deal with global and regional spatial data. The basic motivation is to get students to think about spatial data in the...

Tubular String Characterization in High Temperature High Pressure Oil and Gas Wells

Jiuping Xu, Zezhong Wu
August 30, 2017

High temperature, high oil pressure, oil and gas well completion testing have always been a technical challenge and basic theoretical research is one of the key factors needed to ensure a successful completion test. The completion test basic theory includes: a stress analysis of the completion...

Drilling and Completion in Petroleum Engineering: Theory and Numerical Applications

Xinpu Shen, Mao Bai, William Standifird
June 29, 2017

Modern petroleum and petrotechnical engineering is increasingly challenging due to the inherently scarce and decreasing number of global petroleum resources. Exploiting these resources efficiently will require researchers, scientists, engineers and other practitioners to develop innovative...

Ground-Based Microwave Radiometry and Remote Sensing: Methods and Applications

Pranab Kumar Karmakar
March 31, 2017

The ability to effectively monitor the atmosphere on a continuous basis requires remote sensing in microwave. Written for physicists and engineers working in the area of microwave sensing of the atmosphere, Ground-Based Microwave Radiometry and Remote Sensing: Methods and Applications is completely...

Physics of Coal and Mining Processes

Anatoly D. Alexeev
March 30, 2017

Around the world, on average, four coal miners die for each million tons of coal recovered. Improving the safety of mining work while responding to the need for increased coal production, however, is impossible without further development of the physics of mining processes. A relatively new branch...

Microwave Propagation and Remote Sensing: Atmospheric Influences with Models and Applications

Pranab Kumar Karmakar
March 29, 2017

Because prevailing atmospheric/troposcopic conditions greatly influence radio wave propagation above 10 GHz, the unguided propagation of microwaves in the neutral atmosphere can directly impact many vital applications in science and engineering. These include transmission of intelligence, and radar...

This book features the most current information on the subject with information acquired from noted scientists in this area. The main objective is to convey the...

Space Weather Fundamentals

George V. Khazanov
September 30, 2016

Space weather is one of the most significant natural hazards to human life and health. Conditions of the sun and in the solar wind, magnetosphere, ionosphere, and thermosphere can influence the performance and reliability of space-borne and ground-based technological systems. If conditions in the...

Pressure and Temperature Well Testing

Izzy M. Kutasov, Lev V. Eppelbaum
October 21, 2015

The book comprises two parts: Pressure and Flow Well Testing (Part I) and Temperature Well Testing (Part II), and contains numerous authors’ developments. Due to the similarity in Darcy’s and Fourier’s laws the same differential diffusivity equation describes the transient flow of incompressible...

Groundwater Geophysics in Hard Rock

Prabhat Chandra Chandra
October 19, 2015

In hard rock terrain, shallow water wells generally have a poor to moderate yield. Sinking wells deeply to tap yielding fracture zones often backfires, because the borehole may miss the saturated fracture zones at depths. A wrong approach to groundwater exploration in hard rock has therefore often...
