Subseafloor Biosphere Linked to Hydrothermal Systems: TAIGA Concept

by Jun-ichiro Ishibashi

This book is the comprehensive volume of the TAIGA (“a great river ” in Japanese) project. Supported by the Japanese government, the project examined the hypothesis that the subseafloor fluid advection system (subseafloor TAIGA)   can be categorized into four types, TAIGAs of sulfur, hydrogen, carbon (methane), and iron, according to the most dominant reducing substance, and the chemolithoautotrophic bacteria/archaea that are inextricably associated with respective types of TAIGAs which are strongly affected by their geological background such as surrounding host rocks and tectonic settings. Sub-seafloor ecosystems are sustained by hydrothermal circulation or TAIGA that carry chemical energy to the chemosynthetic microbes living in an extreme environment.  The results of the project...

Volcanic Unrest: From Science to Society (Advances in Volcanology)

by Joachim Gottsmann

This open access book summarizes the findings of the VUELCO project, a multi-disciplinary and cross-boundary research funded by the European Commission's 7th framework program. It comprises four broad topics:1.     The global significance of volcanic unrest2.     Geophysical and geochemical fingerprints of unrest and precursory activity3.     Magma dynamics leading to unrest phenomena4.     Bridging the gap between science and decision-makingVolcanic unrest is a complex multi-hazard phenomenon. The fact that unrest may, or may not lead to an imminent eruption contributes significant uncertainty to short-term volcanic hazard and risk assessment.  Although it is reasonable to assume that all eruptions are associated with precursory activity of some sort, the understanding of...

The Bluefin Tuna Fishery in the Bay of Biscay: Its Relationship with the Crisis of Catches of Large Specimens in the East Atlantic Fisheries from the 1960s (SpringerBriefs in Biology)

by José Luis Cort

This open access book is an original contribution to the knowledge on fishing and research associated with one of the most enigmatic fish of our seas: bluefin tuna, Thunnus thynnus (L.). Based on available evidence, it reconstructs the possible methods used to catch large spawners in the Strait of Gibraltar thousands of years ago and describes the much more recent overfishing that led to a great reduction in the catches of the trap fishery on the area and the disappearance of the northern European fisheries. It is the first book to relate the overfishing of juvenile fishes in certain areas to the decline of large spawners in other very distant areas, revealing one of the main underlying causes of this decline, which has remained a mystery to the fishing sector and scientists alike for over...

Climate Bogeyman: The Criminal Insanity of the Global Warming / Climate Change Hoax

by M King

In bold and certain defiance of “the great and the good” who continue to proclaim “Global Warming” to be “settled science,” author M S King aligns himself firmly and proudly in the camp of what the media refers to as “climate change deniers.” What separates this work from that of so many other excellent books and documentaries which debunk the hoax of manmade “Global Warming” is that it provides a complete picture of the scam – one that not only encompasses the Fake Science, but also ties it into the public relations component and the historical geopolitical context which drives the “Climate Bogeyman.”It is self-defeating to “respectfully disagree” with the warmists. Any respect afforded to that crowd implies that they, in the words of one “denialist” film...

Maritime Spatial Planning: past, present, future

by Jacek Zaucha

This open access book is the first comprehensive overview of maritime or marine spatial planning. Countries across the globe are beginning to implement maritime spatial plans; however the authors of this collection have identified several key questions that are emerging from this growing body of MSP experience. How can maritime spatial planning deal with a complex and dynamic environment such as the sea? How can MSP be embedded in multiple levels of governance across regional and national borders – and how far does the environment benefit from this new approach? This book actively engages with the problems encapsulated in these questions, and explores possible solutions.Situated at the intersection between theory and practice, the volume draws together several strands of interdisciplinar...
