Allgemeine Chemie: Chemie-Basiswissen I by Hans Peter Latscha, Helmut Alfons Klein, Martin Mutz

By Hans Peter Latscha, Helmut Alfons Klein, Martin Mutz

Der erste Band der Reihe Chemie-Basiswissen vermittelt in seiner neuen Auflage die allgemeinen Grundlagen der Chemie für Bachelor-Studiengänge mit Chemie als Haupt- oder Nebenfach sowie für Studierende des höheren Lehramtes. Als Grundlagen-Repetitorium ist er auch für den Master-Studiengang Chemie geeignet. Die Autoren präsentieren den Stoff in kurzer und übersichtlicher shape und mit einem lernfreundlichen format. Das didaktische Konzept und die am Curriculum orientierte Stoffauswahl haben die Vorauflagen so erfolgreich gemacht. Mit der 10. Auflage dieses Bandes sind die Inhalte noch besser auf die Bedürfnisse der angesprochenen Studierenden zugeschnitten. Die für das Hauptfach Chemie darüber hinaus erforderliche Chemie der Elemente ist nun Inhalt eines eigenen, vierten Bandes.

The Environment in Asia Pacific Harbours by Eric Wolanski

By Eric Wolanski

Around the globe urbanization has already reached unheard of degrees within the estuarine and coastal sector. this can be really the case within the Asia Pacific quarter the place mega-cities and mega-harbours have constructed and are nonetheless transforming into. hence environmental degradation is critical and growing to be. This publication information how technological know-how supplies ideas in order that monetary and social advancements might be ecologically sustainable. This publication demonstrates different ideas and pitfalls, successes and screw ups in various ports and harbours within the Asia Pacific quarter, and this can be in accordance with technology and geared toward administration. Twelve websites are mentioned intimately, integrating physics and biology. those are Tokyo Bay, the Pearl Estuary, Hong Kong, Shanghai and the Yangtze delta, Klang, Manila Bay, Jakarta Bay, Pearl Harbour, Ho Chi Minh urban and the hot harbour at the Thi Vai River, Bangkok and coastal waters of the higher Gulf of Thailand, Singapore and Darwin. this can be the coastline of approximately 50 million humans and the coastal waters of approximately 500 million humans. The social, monetary and environmental difficulties are urgent and speak to for science-based suggestions which are addressed by means of this not easy e-book. Thirty across the world regarded, trendy scientists and engineers in universities and examine centres in a majority of these towns wrote the chapters during this booklet. The dominant medical process that might be validated is knowing and quantifying how the impacted estuarine and coastal waters paintings via targeting the hyperlinks among actual and organic techniques, and among technology and engineering. In flip those are associated with fiscal and social concerns. The publication highlights the person studies at those various websites, with many similarities and dissimilarities introduced upon by way of assorted clinical and administration ways, governance and socio-economic matters and varied degrees of improvement. This development in technological know-how was once made attainable by means of the neighborhood specialists – who're truly additionally the authors of the chapters. those specialists offer tricks of long term strategies to allow socio-economic advancements whereas keeping, or restoring, the important environment providers supplied by way of the estuarine and coastal waters. the teachings from this e-book in regards to the Asia Pacific area locate functions all over the world anyplace coastal urbanization and the expansion of mega-harbours take place. The chapters are peer-reviewed to make sure best quality technological know-how. The editor, Dr. Eric Wolanski, is an across the world well-known coastal oceanographer. he's a fellow of the Belgian Academy of in a foreign country Sciences, the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering, and the establishment of Engineers Australia. He was once offered an Australian Centenary medal for prone in estuarine and coastal oceanography and he's a number one Scientist on the Australian Institute of Marine technological know-how with greater than 270 guides.

Implications of Pyrite Oxidation for Engineering Works by A. Brian Hawkins

By A. Brian Hawkins

The publication highlights and analyses the misery to structures as a result of sulphate-induced heave, with specific connection with the new difficulties within the Dublin quarter of eire. It describes the formation of pyrite, the techniques fascinated with its oxidation and a few of the ways that consequential growth happens. For the 1st time within the literature it discusses the way in which that constructions may be raised above their assisting starting place partitions by means of the growth of pyritiferous fill which has been used underneath ground-bearing flooring slabs in eire. the importance of fractures during the iron sulphide microcrystals for the speed and volume of oxidation is mentioned. images and profiles of sulphate ingress into concrete/concrete blocks are offered. Case histories from the united kingdom, North the US and eire are discussed.

The Planetary Scientist's Companion by Katharina Lodders

By Katharina Lodders

Scientists have accrued a wealth of actual and chemical information for the sunlight, planets, and small our bodies in our sunlight process, yet in the past this knowledge has been scattered during the technical literature. The Planetary Scientist's spouse solves this challenge, offering for the 1st time a unmarried, broad reference for the interdisciplinary fields of planetary technology and cosmochemistry.The publication starts with a precis of often used actual and chemical constants, unit conversion elements, houses of a few compounds and minerals, thermodynamic info, partition coefficients, and worthwhile formulation. this is often via an summary of the sun method, together with comparative info for the planets and their satellites, and abundances of the weather. a lot of the ebook is dedicated to a chain of chapters describing in flip the sunlight, all the planets, and the teams of small our bodies (asteroids, comets, meteorites, and Kuiper Belt and Centaur objects). every one bankruptcy starts off with an advent, via tables of actual and chemical homes compiled from many assets, together with info on planetary atmospheres, surfaces, and interiors. The ebook concludes with information on within sight stars, the interstellar medium, and lately found brown dwarfs and attainable extrasolar planets, via a thesaurus. a special and sensible source for a person attracted to modern planetary technology and cosmochemistry, this quantity is perhaps a necessary device in destiny study.

Entropy-Based Parameter Estimation in Hydrology by Vijay P. Singh (auth.)

By Vijay P. Singh (auth.)

Since the pioneering paintings of Shannon within the past due 1940's at the improvement of the speculation of entropy and the landmark contributions of Jaynes a decade later resulting in the advance of the main of extreme entropy (POME), the idea that of entropy has been more and more utilized in a large spectrum of parts, together with chemistry, electronics and communications engineering, info acquisition and garage and retreival, facts tracking community layout, ecology, economics, environmental engineering, earth sciences, fluid mechanics, genetics, geology, geomorphology, geophysics, geotechnical engineering, hydraulics, hydrology, snapshot processing, administration sciences, operations study, development attractiveness and id, photogrammetry, psychology, physics and quantum mechanics, reliability research, reservoir engineering, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, topology, transportation engineering, turbulence modeling, etc. New components discovering software of entropy have considering persisted to spread. The entropy thought is certainly flexible and its applicability frequent. within the region of hydrology and water assets, various functions of entropy were mentioned in past times 3 a long time or so. This booklet makes a speciality of parameter estimation utilizing entropy for a few distributions usually utilized in hydrology. within the entropy-based parameter estimation the distribution parameters are expressed by way of the given info, referred to as constraints. therefore, the strategy lends itself to a actual interpretation of the parameters. as the info to be particular often constitutes enough information for the distribution into account, the entropy approach presents a quantitative strategy to exhibit the data inside the distribution.
