by Rosenzweig Cynthia & Hillel Daniel

“Top agricultural scientists from around the world have taken up the challenge of sustainable agriculture, with the specific focus on integrating agronomic, climatological, biophysical and socio-economic perspectives and processes. Every chapter (of the Handbook) contributes to addressing the growing food-security challenges facing the world.”Foreword by Jeffrey Sachs, Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia UniversityClimate effects on agriculture are of increasing concern in both the scientific and policy communities because of the growing population and the greater uncertainty in the weather during growing seasons. Changes in production are directly linked to variations in temperature and precipitation during the growing season and often to the offseason changes in weather becau...

Vocabulary for Kids!: Volcano

by Quinn Stewart

The Perfect way for your child to pass the time!

Read for FREE with Amazon Unlimited and Amazon Prime!

Studies show that students with a larger vocabulary are more successful in all areas of their scholastic careers. Reading comprehension is an essential skill in today’s competitive world. It has been argued that promoting independent daily reading sessions of 10-20 minutes with children is highly important for critical thinking (Krashen, 1993). It has also been observed that teaching children the context surrounding a word’s definition is an appropriate strategy for understanding why a word has its meaning (Kuhn and Stahl, 1998).

Borrowing from modern foreign language learning software, this book offers a simple yet effective technique for ...

Weather: An Act of Man

by Michael Fleming

Humans are the only species willing to destroy their nest.

With their power to create and destroy life and property - some choose the wrong decision due to mental illness. These "mad scientists" who use chemical weapons on American citizens and create un-natural disasters through cloud seeding and geoengineering have ongoing mental issues that need to be solved immediately in order to prevent further harm to planet Earth... our only place to live.

David Keith, geoengineering poster-child and domestic terrorist, believes that he can "save the planet" by "spraying it with battery acid," while admitting to the murder of over 1 million individuals per year from his test-in-progress. Need I say more?...

Wetlands and Water Framework Directive: Protection, Management and Climate Change (GeoPlanet: Earth and Planetary Sciences)

by Stefan Ignar

This book compares the lessons learned from a wetland-perspective approach to the changing climate and the requirements of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) with regard to environmental conservation. Examples from Germany and Poland are discussed due to the efficiency of their respective implementations of water conservation policies. Although the general scientific interest in specific issues such as wetlands, climate change, nature conservation and the WFD enjoy a well established position in international environmental research, these four elements are rarely considered together due to the complexity of the processes, biased scenarios of global change and subjective policy background. Major challenges involved in carrying out environmental conservation actions that assess the potentia...

Arctic Geopolitics, Media and Power (Routledge Geopolitics Series)

by Annika Nilsson E.

Arctic Geopolitics, Media and Power provides a fresh way of looking at the potential and limitations of regional international governance in the Arctic region. Far-reaching impacts of climate change, its wealth of resources and potential for new commercial activities have placed the Arctic region into the political limelight. In an era of rapid environmental change, the Arctic provides a complex and challenging case of geopolitical interplay. Based on analyses of how actors from within and outside the Arctic region assert their interests and how such discourses travel in the media, this book scrutinizes the social and material contexts within which new imaginaries, spatial constructs and scalar preferences emerge. It places ground-breaking attention to shifting media landscapes as a criti...

Plate Tectonics: The engine inside the Earth (In Depth Science Book 3)

by Judith Hubbard

What do ancient reptile fossils have to do with radioactive atoms deep inside the Earth's mantle? What causes earthquakes and volcanic eruptions? Why are there strange creatures living deep beneath the ocean surface, where hot water and chemicals spew out of cracks in the ocean floor? The answer to all of these is the same: plate tectonics. Over the last century, scientists have discovered how heat generated deep inside the Earth drives movements of the mantle and crust - and how in our Solar System, this process is almost unique to our home planet.

All of this is real science, written at a level that kids can read and understand. The text is supplemented with interesting illustrations and photographs to make the science more vivid, appropriate for both standard Kindle and tab...

Elite Women and the Agricultural Landscape, 1700–1830 (Studies in Historical Geography)

by Briony McDonagh

Social and economic histories of the long eighteenth century have largely ignored women as a class of landowners and improvers. 1700 to 1830 was a period in which the landscape of large swathes of the English Midlands was reshaped – both materially and imaginatively – by parliamentary enclosure and a bundle of other new practices. Outside the Midlands too, local landscapes were remodelled in line with the improving ideals of the era. Yet while we know a great deal about the men who pushed forward schemes for enclosure and sponsored agricultural improvement, far less is known about the role played by female landowners and farmers and their contributions to landscape change.Drawing on examples from across Georgian England, Elite Women and the Agricultural Landscape, 1700–1830 offers a ...

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...

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...

Solar Particle Radiation Storms Forecasting and Analysis: The HESPERIA HORIZON 2020 Project and Beyond (Astrophysics and Space Science Library Book 444)

by Olga E. Malandraki

Solar energetic particles (SEPs) emitted from the Sun are a major space weather hazard motivating the development of predictive capabilities. This book presents the results and findings of the HESPERIA (High Energy Solar Particle Events forecasting and Analysis) project of the EU HORIZON 2020 programme. It discusses the forecasting operational tools developed within the project, and presents progress to SEP research contributed by HESPERIA both from the observational as well as the SEP modelling perspective. Using multi-frequency observational data and simulations HESPERIA investigated the chain of processes from particle acceleration in the corona, particle transport in the magnetically complex corona and interplanetary space, to the detection near 1 AU. The book also elaborates on the un...

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...
