Time Series Analysis in Meteorology and Climatology

Human Geography 10th Edition

Erin H. Fouberg, Northern State University Alexander B. Murphy, Univ. of Oregon H. J. de Blij, Univ. of Miami 978-1-118-01869-9, October 2012

An Introduction 1st Edition

Claude Duchon, University of Oklahoma Robert Hale, Colorado State University 978-0-470-97199-4, December 2011 Time Series Analysis in Meteorology and Climatology provides an accessible overview of this notoriously difficult subject. Clearly structured throughout, the authors develop sufficient theoretical foundation to understand the basis for applying various analytical methods to time series and show clearly how to interpret the results. Taking a unique approach to the subject, the authors use a combination of theory and application to real data sets to enhance student understanding throughout the book. Each chapter covers the various methods that can be used to carry out this analysis, with coverage of the necessary theory and its application. In the theoretical section, topics covered include the mathematical origin of spectrum windows, leakage of variance and understanding spectrum windows. The application section includes real data sets for students to analyse. Scalar variables are used for ease of understanding for example air temperatures, wind speed and precipitation. Students are encouraged to write their own computer programmes and data sets are provided to enable them to recognize quickly whether their programme is working correctly- one data set is provided with artificial data and the other with real data where the students are required to physically interpret the results of their periodgram analysis. Based on the acclaimed and long standing course at the University of Oklahoma, the book is distinct in its approach to the subject matter in that it is written specifically for readers in meteorology and climatology and uses a mix of theory and application to real data sets.

This edition includes all of the important concepts and theory on Human Geography as previous issues with a more succinct and engaging narrative while going in depth to touch on all the major themes of the topic. The main objective is to provide more understanding of human systems from a spatial perspective; ways to think globally; and ways to understand real-world implications of Human Geography. The text will help encourage a better understanding of how to create an identity in a globalized world and how decisions happen in a global context and can have global impacts. It includes recurring coverage of “identity” and how people make places and shape identities to see global, local and individual implications of decisions that people make every day.

NEW TO THIS EDITION • Increased focus on identity and how every human being forges an identity in a global world. • All maps in the book have been revised to reflect 2010 Census data. • Entire book was updated with new chapter opening vignettes, field notes and photos. • There have been significant updates and revisions to chapters 11, 12, 13 by subject area experts.

FEATURES • "From the Field" examines a specific place, its location, what the issues are, geographers' field research and what the authors found in their own observations. • "Applying geographic knowledge" sections at the end of each chapter, address the key concepts used within the chapter and force students to apply geographic concepts.  • All geographic concepts are shown and explained with the most up-to-date photos, illustrations and maps. • "Thinking Geographically" questions ask the reader to apply a geographic concept to a real life example.

Tectonic geomorphology is the study of the interplay between tectonic and surface processes that shape the landscape in regions of active deformation and at time scales ranging from days to millions of years. Over the past decade, recent advances in the quantification of both rates and the physical basis of tectonic and surface processes have underpinned an explosion of new research in the field of tectonic geomorphology. Modern tectonic geomorphology is an exceptionally integrative field that utilizes techniques and data derived from studies of geomorphology, seismology, geochronology, structure, geodesy, stratigraphy, meteorology and quaternary science. While integrating new insights and highlighting controversies from the ten years of research since the 1st edition, this 2nd edition of Tectonic Geomorphology reviews the fundamentals of the subject, including the nature of faulting and folding, the creation and use of geomorphic markers for tracing deformation, chronological techniques that are used to date events and quantify rates, geodetic techniques for defining recent deformation, and paleoseismologic approaches to calibrate past deformation. This book provides a timely synthesis of modern research for upper-level undergraduate and graduate earth science students and for practicing geologists.

Geology Sedimentary Rocks in the Field

Sedimentology and Sedimentary Basins

2nd Edition

2nd Edition

A Practical Guide

From Turbulence to Tectonics

Maurice E. Tucker, Durham University, UK 978-0-470-68916-5, January 2011 This fourth edition builds on the success of previous editions and for the first time is produced in full colour throughout with improved photos and diagrams. It retains its popular pocket size and is an essential buy for all students working in the field. The text shows how sedimentary rocks are tackled in the field and has been written for all those with a geological background. It describes how the features of sedimentary rocks can be recorded in the field particularly through the construction of graphic logs. In succeeding chapters the various sedimentary rock types, textures and structures are discussed and shown how they can be described and measured in the field. There are expanded sections on trace fossils and volcaniclastics along with updated reference list. Finally a concluding section deals briefly with facies identification and points the ways towards facies interpretations, and the identification of sequences and cycles.

TABLE OF CONTENTS Preface; Acknowledgements; Introduction; Field Techniques; Sedimentary Rock Types; Sedimentary Rock Texture; Sedimentary Structures and Geometry of Sedimentary Deposits; Fossils in the Field; Palaeocurrent Analysis;What Next? Facies Analysis, Cycles and Sequences; References and Further Reading; Index.

Mike R. Leeder, University of East Anglia, UK 978-1-4051-7783-2, January 2011 The sedimentary record on Earth stretches back more than 4.3 billion years and is present in more abbreviated forms on companion planets of the Solar System, like Mars and Venus, and doubtless elsewhere. Reading such planetary archives correctly requires intimate knowledge of modern sedimentary processes acting within the framework provided by tectonics, climate and sea or lake level variations. The subject of sedimentology thus encompasses the origins, transport and deposition of mineral sediment on planetary surfaces. The author addresses the principles of the subject from the viewpoint of modern processes, emphasising a general science narrative approach in the main text, with quantitative background derived in enabling ‘cookie’ appendices. The book ends with an innovative chapter dealing with how sedimentology is currently informing a variety of cognate disciplines, from the timing and extent tectonic uplift to variations in palaeoclimate. Each chapter concludes with a detailed guide to key further reading leading to a large bibliography of over 2500 entries. The book is designed to reach an audience of senior undergraduate and graduate students and interested academic and industry professionals.

TABLE OF CONTENTS Making Sediment; Moving Fluid; Transporting Sediment; Major External Controls on Sedimentation and Sedimentary Environments; Continental Sedimentary Environments; Marine Sedimentary Environments; Sedimentary Architecture of Sedimentary Basins; Topics: Sediment Solutions to Interdisciplinary Problems.

Environmental Hazards and Disasters Contexts, Perspectives and Management 1st Edition

Bimal Kanti Paul, Kasas State University 978-0-470-66001-0, November 2011 Environmental Hazards and Disasters: Contexts, Perspectives and Management is designed as a primary text for an interdisciplinary course on hazards for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students. It focuses on manifested threats to humans and their welfare as a result of natural disasters. The book uses an integrative approach to address socio-cultural, political and physical components of the disaster process. Human and social vulnerability as well as risk to environmental hazards are explored within the comprehensive context of diverse natural hazards and disasters. In addition to scientific explanations of disastrous occurrences, people and governments of hazard-prone countries often have their own interpretations for why natural disasters occur. In such interpretations they often either blame others, in order to conceal their inability to protect themselves, or they blame themselves, attributing the events to either real or imagined misdeeds. The book contains a chapter devoted to the neglected topic of such reactions and explanations.

Practical Field Ecology A Project Guide 1st Edition

C. Philip Wheater, Manchester Metropolitan University James R. Bell, Rothamsted Research Penny A. Cook, Liverpool John Moores University 978-0-470-69429-9, April 2011 This book introduces experimental design and data analysis / interpretation as well as field monitoring skills for both plants and animals. Clearly structured throughout and written in a student-friendly manner, the main emphasis of the book concentrates on the techniques required to design a field based ecological survey and shows how to execute an appropriate sampling regime. The book evaluates appropriate methods, including the problems associated with various techniques and their inherent flaws (e.g. low sample sizes, large amount of field or laboratory work, high cost etc). This provides a resource base outlining details from the planning stage, into the field, guiding through sampling and finally through organism identification in the laboratory and computer based data analysis and interpretation. The text is divided into six distinct chapters. The first chapter covers planning, including health and safety together with information on a variety of statistical techniques for examining and analysing data. Following a chapter dealing with site characterisation and general aspects of species identification, subsequent chapters describe the techniques used to survey and census particular groups of organisms. The final chapter covers interpreting and presenting data and writing up the research. The emphasis here is on appropriate wording of interpretation and structure and content of the report.

The study of dinosaurs has been experiencing a remarkable renaissance over the past few decades. Scientific understanding of dinosaur anatomy, biology, and evolution has advanced to such a degree that paleontologists often know more about 100-million-year-old dinosaurs than many species of living organisms. Published in collaboration with the Palaeontological Association, this book provides a contemporary review of dinosaur science intended for students, researchers, and dinosaur enthusiasts. It reviews the latest knowledge on dinosaur anatomy and phylogeny, how dinosaurs functioned as living animals, and the grand narrative of dinosaur evolution across the Mesozoic. A particular focus is on the fossil evidence and explicit methods that allow paleontologists to study dinosaurs in rigorous detail. Scientific knowledge of dinosaur biology and evolution is shifting fast, and this book aims to summarize current understanding of dinosaur science in a technical, but accessible, style, supplemented with vivid photographs and illustrations.
