By Jacques Yves Guigné,Philippe Blondel

Offshore drilling and buildings require distinctive wisdom of the geophysical homes of the seabed and sub-seabed, as unforeseen gadgets can decelerate or halt initiatives. This booklet offers the state of the art in acoustic exploration of the seabed and sub-seabed, from preliminary designs within the Eighties to advertisement contracting and operation of the Acoustic Corer™ within the final decade. The Acoustic Corer™ is a high-definition advertisement acoustic sub-bottom imaging method, generating an “acoustic middle” inside of which sub-seabed sedimentary features and discrete buried items greater than half m should be pointed out and mapped. It uses the cutting edge JYG-cross layout, encouraged through seismic mirrored image and makes use of artificial Aperture Sonar (SAS) multi-angle scattering in and in the seabed to bring unheard of imagery. This booklet used to be written via the inventor of those options, a recognized professional in seabed acoustics, with support from an skilled educational and writer. it really is meant before everything as a “how-to” consultant for offshore industries taking a look at options to make the deploy of alternative kinds of buildings secure and efficient.

Gravel Bed Rivers 6: From Process Understanding to River Restoration: 11 (Developments in Earth Surface Processes)

In keeping with the interdisciplinary methods among earth technology, engineering, actual geography, ecology and administration, this article makes a speciality of the theoretical questions, case-studies, demanding situations, and constraints taken from river recovery. it truly is illustrated with studies of recent ground-breaking learn masking spatial and temporal scales of actual approaches in river catchments, coupling catchment and fluvial methods, grain dynamics and fluvial types and on geo-ecology and recovery in mountain gravel-bed river environments.

Nonlinear Dynamics of Rotating Shallow Water: Methods and Advances: 2 (Edited Series on Advances in Nonlinear Science and Complexity)

The rotating shallow water (RSW) version is of huge use as a conceptual device in geophysical fluid dynamics (GFD), simply because, despite its simplicity, it includes all crucial components of surroundings and ocean dynamics on the synoptic scale, particularly in its - (or multi-) layer model. The publication describes contemporary advances in realizing (in the framework of RSW and comparable versions) of a few basic GFD difficulties, reminiscent of lifestyles of the gradual manifold, dynamical splitting of speedy (inertia-gravity waves) and gradual (vortices, Rossby waves) motions, nonlinear geostrophic adjustment and wave emission, the position of basically nonlinear wave phenomena.

Handbook of Engineering Hydrology: Modeling, Climate Change, and Variability: Volume 1

Whereas such a lot books learn basically the classical features of hydrology, this three-volume set covers a number of features of hydrology. It examines new techniques, addresses transforming into matters approximately hydrological and ecological connectivity, and considers the global influence of weather switch. It additionally offers up-to-date fabric on hydrological technology and engineering, discussing fresh advancements in addition to vintage methods.

River Mechanics

This textbook deals a radical research of rivers from upland parts to oceans. It scrutinizes decide upon tools underlining either idea and engineering purposes, emphasizing the mechanics of flood wave propagation and sediment shipping in rivers. The textual content covers basic rules, engineering research, and engineering layout, with difficulties, examples, and case experiences all through.
