Groundwater Modelling in Arid and Semi-Arid Areas

Arid and semi-arid areas face significant demanding situations within the administration of scarce freshwater assets below pressures of inhabitants, monetary improvement, weather swap, toxins and over-abstraction. Groundwater is often crucial water source in those components. Groundwater versions are established globally to appreciate groundwater structures and to lead judgements on administration.

Innovative Subsurface Remediation. Field Testing of Physical, Chemical, and Characterization Technologies

The Medieval Warm Period

The Medieval hot interval and the Little Ice Age are greatly thought of to were the key gains of the Earth's weather during the last one thousand years. during this quantity the difficulty of even if there fairly was once a Medieval hot interval, and if that is so, the place and while, is addressed. the kinds of proof tested contain historic records, tree earrings, ice cores, glacial-geological documents, borehole temperature, paleoecological facts and documents of sunlight receipts inferred from cosmogenic isotopes.

Climate and Water: Transboundary Challenges in the Americas

Weather and Water: Transboundary demanding situations within the Americas explores the various ways in which weather, hydrology, and water source administration converge on the borders among jurisdictions and nations within the western Hemisphere. This ebook is exclusive in concentrating on case experiences of climate-hydrology-water source administration in diversified contexts in South, vital, and North the United States.

The non-equilibrium phenomenon is an interesting issue during a rapid heating or a cooling process. This phenomenon occurs in various engineering applications such as nuclear devices, Fichot et al. (2006), fuel cells, Damm and Fedorov (2006), electronic systems, Lage et al. (1996), micro devices, Jiang et al. (2001), and others. Generally, a classical approach is used to determine the materials temperature in the presence of Local Thermal Equilibrium (LTE). In the absence of LTE, the single energy equation needs to be replaced with two energy equations, one for the solid and another for the fluid.
