The Western Alps, from Rift to Passive Margin to Orogenic Belt

Pierre-Charles de Graciansky & David G. Roberts & Pierre Tricart

The Western Alps, from Rift to Passive Margin to Orogenic Belt by Pierre-Charles de Graciansky & David G. Roberts & Pierre Tricart

The objective of the book is to provide an updated synthesis of the evolution of the Alpine fold belt hitherto not available in English. The overall concept is to build on classical Alpine geological studies made since the start of the 19th century by integrating this work with modern results obtained systematically on mid ocean ridges and passive margins worldwide over the past 50 years using new marine geological and geophysical technologies. The book thus provides an integrated overview of the evolution of the Alps from rift to passive margin to the present fold belt over a time span of 300my....

Ultrahigh-Pressure Metamorphism

Shah Wali Faryad

Ultrahigh-Pressure Metamorphism by Shah Wali Faryad

Ultrahigh pressure metamorphism (UHPM) is a relatively new but fast growing discipline related to the deep subduction of slabs of continental and/or oceanic crust into the Earth's mantle and their return towards the surface as important components of mountain belts. The discipline was established ~25 years ago after discoveries of high pressure minerals, coesite and diamond, in the rocks of the continental affinities, a place where such minerals are "forbiden"according to main geological concepts. Exposures of HP/UHP rocks, once thought to be restricted to European Mountain systems, are being...

Epigenetic Principles of Evolution

Nelson R. Cabej

Epigenetic Principles of Evolution by Nelson R. Cabej

This is the first and only book, so far, to deal with the causal basis of evolution from an epigenetic view. By revealing the epigenetic "user" of the "genetic toolkit", this book demonstrates the primacy of epigenetic mechanisms and epigenetic information in generating evolutionary novelties.

The author convincingly supports his theory with a host of examples from the most varied fields of biology, by emphasizing changes in developmental pathways as the basic source of evolutionary change in metazoans.

  • Original and thought-provoking - a radically new theory that overcomes the present difficulties...

Offshore Wind

Kurt Thomsen

Offshore Wind by Kurt ThomsenOffshore wind is the new blue horizon for Alternative Energy. One small offshore wind farm can produce more power than a whole coal plant, or a nuclear reactor. However, very few people have real experience getting an offshore wind farm up and running. This book is the first-ever roadmap to successful offshore wind installation. It provides a ready reference for wind project managers, teaching them how to deal with complications on-site, as well as for financers, who can utilize the text as an easy guide to asking the pivotal questions of petitioning wind project developers, whose planning stages...

Elbert Russell

The Scientific Foundation of Neuropsychological Assessment by Elbert Russell

Neuropsychology is a specialized branch of psychology which focuses on the relationship between the brain and human functions including cognition, behaviour, and emotion. With an emphasis on a scientific approach which includes analysing quantitative data, neuropsychology follows an information processing approach to brain activity using standard assessments to evaluate various mental functions. This book examines the standardized battery of tests in neuropsychology, with a particular focus on forensic applications of these tests, suggesting that a united theory of assessment needs to be established....

An Interactive History of the Clean Air Act

Jonathan M. Davidson & Joseph M. Norbeck

An Interactive History of the Clean Air Act by Jonathan M. Davidson & Joseph M. Norbeck

The Clean Air Act of 1970 set out for the United States a basic, yet ambitious, objective to reduce pollution to levels that protect health and welfare. The Act set out state and federal regulations to limit emissions and the Environmental Protection Agency was established to help enforce the regulations. The Act has since had several amendments, notably in 1977 and 1990, and has successfully helped to increase air quality. This book reviews the history of the Clean Air Act of 1970 including the political, business, and scientific elements that went into establishing the Act, emphasizing the...

Verbal Minds

Toni Gomila

Verbal Minds by Toni Gomila

Ten years ago, the hegemonic idea was that language was a kind of independent module within the mind, a sort of "print-out" of whatever cognitive activity was taking place, but without any influence whatsoever in that activity. While this view is still held, evidence amassed in the last 10 years suggests another view of their inter-relationships, even though exactly which one is not clear yet, in part because of the lack of a unified view, and in part because of the inertia of the previous position, in part because all this evidence must be considered together. An increasing number of researchers...

American Trypanosomiasis

Michel Tibayrenc

American Trypanosomiasis by Michel Tibayrenc

Chagas Disease causes severe socioeconomic impact and a high medical cost in Latin America. WHO and the World Bank consider Chagas Disease as the fourth most transmittable disease to have a major impact on public health in Latin America: 120 million persons are potentially exposed, 16-18 million of whom are presently infected, causing 45,000-50,000 deaths per year. It has been calculated that approximately 2.4 million potential working years are lost because of incapacity and mortality due to the disease, for an annual cost estimated at 20 billion euros.

Lectures on Dynamics of Stochastic Systems

Valery I. Klyatskin

Lectures on Dynamics of Stochastic Systems by Valery I. Klyatskin

Fluctuating parameters appear in a variety of physical systems and phenomena. They typically come either as random forces/sources, or advecting velocities, or media (material) parameters, like refraction index, conductivity, diffusivity, etc. Models naturally render to statistical description, where random processes and fields express the input parameters and solutions. The fundamental problem of stochastic dynamics is to identify the essential characteristics of system (its state and evolution), and relate those to the input parameters of the system and initial data.

This book is a revised and...
