Field Guide to California Rivers (California Natural History Guides, Volume 105)

Award-winning writer, naturalist, and conservationist Tim Palmer provides the area of California rivers during this useful and encouraging box consultant. Loaded with pointers on the place to hike, fish, canoe, kayak, and raft, it bargains an interpretive procedure that finds geology, plant and wild existence, hydrologic tactics, and different typical phenomena.

Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change: Research Pathways for the Next Decade

Committee at the Human Dimensions of world swap and Committee on worldwide switch examine, Board on Environmental switch and Society, coverage department, department of Behavioral and Social Sciences and schooling, nationwide learn Council

This e-book is extracted from a far better record, worldwide Environmental switch: study Pathways for the following Decade, which addresses the whole variety of the clinical matters bearing on international environmental switch and gives counsel to the medical attempt on those matters within the usa. This quantity contains bankruptcy 7 of that document, ''Human Dimensions of worldwide Environmental Change,'' which used to be written for the file by means of the Committee at the Human Dimensions of worldwide switch of the nationwide learn Council (NRC). It offers findings and conclusions at the key medical questions in human dimensions learn, the teachings which have been realized during the last decade, and the study imperatives for international swap examine funded from the U.S..

Applied Thermodynamics for Meteorologists

This textbook on atmospheric thermodynamics is for college kids of meteorology or atmospheric technological know-how. It additionally serves as a reference textual content for operating pros in meteorology and climate forecasting. it's particular since it offers entire, calculus-based derivations of easy physics from first rules, and connects mathematical relationships to real-world, sensible climate forecasting functions.

How important is multiple scattering in the low-grazing-angle regime? • Why do Doppler offsets often fail to correspond to surface currents for backscatter in the low-grazingangle regime? • Are opportunities opened at low grazing angles for time-space studies that can distinguish among different processes by their different dispersion relations? • What happens when ultrashort pulses are scattered at very low grazing angles? Experimental Approach: A wide variety of experiments have been conducted in the past at these low grazing angles because of the ease with which they could be conducted from shoreline stations, but it has been difficult to characterize conditions in the scattering area.

Html SCIENTIFIC OPPORTUNITIES AND RECOMMENDATIONS 21 show up in high-resolution microwave imagery of the ocean. Theoretical Approach: For the past few decades theoreticians have concentrated on trying to improve upon the Bragg scattering and composite surface theory. Some more general scattering theories have been developed that seem to compare as well with data as the composite theory, but improvements in accuracy have not been completely established. The best of these theories either reduce to composite theory in some limit, or use more theoretically defensible methods to include the impact of longer waves on the backscatter.
