Atmosphere-Ocean Dynamics (International Geophysics) by Adrian E. Gill

By Adrian E. Gill

a scientific, unifying method of the dynamics of the sea and surroundings is given during this e-book, with emphasis at the larger-scale motions (from a couple of kilometers to international scale). the principles of the topic (the equations of kingdom and dynamical equations) are coated in a few element, in order that scholars with education in arithmetic may still locate it a self-contained textual content. wisdom of fluid mechanics is useful yet no longer crucial. easy mathematical types are used to illustrate the elemental dynamical ideas with considerable illustrations from box and laboratory.

At the Top of the Grand Staircase: The Late Cretaceous of Southern Utah (Life of the Past)

The Grand Staircase-Escalante nationwide Monument in Utah is the positioning of 1 of the best-known terrestrial files for the past due Cretaceous. a big attempt within the new century has documented over 2,000 new vertebrate fossil websites, supplied new radiometric dates, and pointed out 5 new genera of ceratopsids, new species of hadrosaur, a likely new genus of hypsilophodontid, new pachycephalosaurs and ankylosaurs, numerous varieties of theropods (including a brand new genus of oviraptor and a brand new tyrannosaur), plus the main entire specimen of a overdue Cretaceous therizinosaur ever accumulated from North the USA, and masses extra.

Rock Grouting: with Emphasis on Dam Sites

Fifteen years have handed on the grounds that i used to be operating at a dam website tremendous­ vising grouting paintings. That used to be no longer the 1st time that I needed to vehicle­ ry out engineering geological investigations for a number of related tasks, which continually incorporated checking out programmes to determine the permeability of the rock, and sometimes i used to be in command of grouting paintings.

Geomorphology of Central America: A Syngenetic Perspective

Geomorphology of imperative the United States is authored via a scientist with greater than 30 years of nearby overview examine event in imperative American nations, arming scientists with a vintage learn method—a process finest whilst utilized to express geographic areas globally. The medical concepts used for assessing nearby experiences of a space replicate a degree of craftsmanship that has develop into tougher to return via over the last 3 a long time and underscores the significance of neighborhood exams of geomorphological beneficial properties.

Tectonic Inheritance in Continental Rifts and Passive Margins (SpringerBriefs in Earth Sciences)

This paintings reports the mechanism of rifting with a spotlight on pre-existing tectonic weaknesses in pre-rift and/or basement rocks, i. e. , on tectonic inheritance. The passive margins which are studied during this ebook are the Norwegian Continental Shelf, the jap North the United States and the East and West Indian Continental Margins.
