Environment and Earth Observation: Case Studies in India by S. Hazra,A. Mukhopadhyay,A. R. Ghosh,D. Mitra,V. K. Dadhwal

By S. Hazra,A. Mukhopadhyay,A. R. Ghosh,D. Mitra,V. K. Dadhwal

This ebook offers appropriate and modern examine at the distant sensing of landscapes, agriculture & forestry, geomorphology, coasts & oceans, typical risks and wild habitats. It highlights the applying of distant sensing in knowing ordinary methods and oceanic positive aspects, in addition to in growing mapping inventories of water assets throughout varied spatial and temporal scales. fresh advances in hyperspectral imaging and excessive spatial answer provide promising ideas for exploring quite a few facets regarding the fruitful and good value tracking of large-scale environments. within the box of forestry and agriculture, the e-book addresses themes comparable to terrain research, wooded area administration, updating present woodland inventories, and crops conceal variety discrimination. It additionally elaborates delineation of varied geo-morphological gains of the earth’s floor and average failures, and features a precise part at the distant sensing of untamed habitats. Readers operating in interdisciplinary sectors engaged in remote-sensing-based learn enjoy the innovations presented.

Coastal Hazards: 1000 (Coastal Research Library)

This ebook covers the gamut of coastal dangers that outcome from non permanent low-frequency occasions and feature high-magnitude and far-reaching affects on coastal zones internationally. a lot of the world’s inhabitants now lives in low-lying coastal zones which are inherently liable to traditional dangers equivalent to flooding from hurricanes, tropical storms and northeastern hurricane surges; coastline (beach and dune) erosion; cliff and bluff mess ups; and saltwater intrusion in coastal aquifers used for consuming water provides.

Minerals: Their Constitution and Origin

Minerals: Their structure and starting place is an advent to mineralogy for undergraduate and graduate scholars within the fields of geology and fabrics technology. it's been designed for a one-semester direction and covers all points of mineralogy in an up to date and built-in sort. The ebook is split into 5 components that debate constitution and bonding inside minerals; mineral physics and optical houses; modes of mineral formation and thermodynamics; mineral teams in the context of mineral-forming environments; and the applying of mineralogy for the exploitation of steel deposits, gemstones, and cement.

Aeolian Dust and Dust Deposits

Aeolian dirt and mud Deposits explores the entrainment, dispersion, and deposition of aeolian airborne dirt and dust and mud deposits, with emphasis on delivery and deposition of airborne dirt and dust derived by means of deflation of floor sediments and soils. issues lined diversity from the mechanisms of fine-particle formation to dirt resources, sinks, and premiums of deposition.

The Upper Mantle (Developments in Geotectonics)

Advancements in Geotectonics, four: the higher Mantle makes a speciality of the higher mantle and its impression at the improvement of the earth's crust, together with heritage of the moon and different planets and volcanology. the choice first bargains details at the foundation of the earth, together with rules at the formation strategy of the terrestrial planets, condensation of dirt debris, nature of the earth's center, thermal background of the earth, and fractionation of iron within the terrestrial planets.
