Encyclopedia of Soil Science

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 23:31:17 GMT2016-04-07T23:31:17Z

series:Encyclopedia of Earth Sciences Series

Soils long have been taken for granted being so commonplace and lacking often striking features. However, soil is one of the most complex media on Earth, vital for the biogeosphere and human civilization. With increased usage of soil for world food production, building materials, waste repositories, etc awareness has grown for the need of better global understanding of soil and its ...

Broad Scale Coastal Simulation

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 18:56:49 GMT2015-08-30T18:56:49Z

New Techniques to Understand and Manage Shorelines in the Third Millennium
series:Advances in Global Change Research

This volume details research underpinning the ‘Coastal Simulator’ developed by the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. The Simulator provides a framework to analyze long term coastal evolution taking account of all the relevant factors. These include the uncertain future climate and other conditions, such as land use change and allows evaluation of diverse management responses.Coastal ...




Large Dams in Asia

Wed, 20 Nov 2013 01:49:20 GMT2013-11-20T01:49:20Z

Contested Environments between Technological Hydroscapes and Social Resistance
series:Advances in Asian Human-Environmental Research

This book explores the multi-dimensional asymmetries of scale, time, and directions in the large dam controversy with a regional focus on Asia, especially on India and China. Whereas the concept of large-scale transformation of fluvial environments into technological hydroscapes originated in the West, widespread construction of large dams started in the countries of the Global South in the ...

series:Anthropogenic Compounds

This volume, written by 25 experts from industry and research, provides a thorough overview of commercially important and environmentally mobile organosilicon materials. It outlines the structure, properties and applications of the four most significant material classes, and summarizes their environmental entry, transport, fate and impact. Readers now have access in one volume to structure, ...




Patterns of Land Degradation in Drylands

Wed, 21 Aug 2013 23:40:41 GMT2013-08-21T23:40:41Z

Understanding Self-Organised Ecogeomorphic Systems

Land degradation in drylands is a multi-faceted problem. Consequently, current management approaches that attempt to mitigate such land degradation often fail to produce significant improvements. The processes associated with land degradation in drylands fall at the interface of ecology and geomorphology. For a better understanding of this degradation, there is a need to uncover the underlying ...




Greening in the Red Zone

Fri, 26 Jul 2013 23:43:21 GMT2013-07-26T23:43:21Z

Disaster, Resilience and Community Greening

Creation and access to green spaces promotes individual human health, especially in therapeutic contexts among those suffering traumatic events. But what of the role of access to green space and the act of creating and caring for such places in promoting social health and well-being? Greening in the Red Zone asserts that creation and access to green spaces confers resilience and recovery in ...
