From Information to Smart Society: Environment, Politics and Economics (Lecture Notes in Information Systems and Organisation, Volume 5)

This ebook offers a suite of analysis papers concentrating on concerns rising from the interplay of knowledge applied sciences and organizational platforms. particularly, the person contributions research electronic systems and artifacts at the moment followed in either the enterprise international and society at huge (people, groups, organisations, governments, and so forth.

Numerical Models of Oceans and Oceanic Processes

Numerical types of Oceans and Oceanic methods is a survey of the present kingdom of information during this box. It brings jointly a dialogue of salient oceanic dynamics and approaches, numerical resolution equipment, and ocean types to supply a entire remedy of the subject. beginning with uncomplicated techniques in ocean dynamics, it offers with equatorial, mid-latitude, excessive range, and coastal dynamics from the point of view of a modeler.

Optimisation of Disaster Forecasting and Prevention Measures in the Context of Human and Social Dynamics - Volume 52 NATO Science for Peace and Security Series - E: Human and Societal Dynamics

Optimisation of catastrophe Forecasting and Prevention Measures within the Context of Human and Social Dynamics addresses a variety of disaster-management regimes. The imperative issues (for a sequence of commonplace catastrophe situations) specialize in how those mess ups can have an effect on either the human and traditional environments.

Suspended Matter in the Aquatic Environment

The aim of this e-book is to offer an creation to crucial facets of suspended subject within the aquatic setting: its foundation and composition, the focus distribution, shipping and deposition, and crucial physical-chemical-bio­ logical strategy that is affecting suspended topic: flocculation.

Biological cycles, originating in (a) a small cell unit (human pulse), (b) in an organism (activity of a finch), and (c) in a population (numbers of lynx in Canada), respectively (50). 7. Biological Clocks and Time Lags 41 ture chambers with continuous illumination or darkness, or with an unnatural environmental cycle of day and night, have been used to reveal some curious effects. In general, the phase can be shifted easily but the 24-hr biological periodicity is much more difficult to alter. Not only does a seedling "remember" its natural environment but, even if it has never known the real world, it maintains 24-hr rhythms of growth in a darkened room (51, p.

The latter can be expressed in any of the conventional units, but is normally given as electron volts (eV) or some multiple thereof such as kiloelectron volts (keV) or mega electron volts (MeV). 6 X 10~6 ergs. The effect of ionizing radiation on matter is related to the energy absorbed per unit mass—the absorbed dose—and is measured in rads. One rad is 100 ergs/g. For many purposes, it is more convenient to use the exposure. The unit is the roentgen (r). One roentgen is an exposure of X- or γ-radiation such that the associated corpuscular emission per cubic centimeter of air at normal temperature and pressure produces, in air, ions carrying one electrostatic unit of quantity of electricity of either sign.

Instead of concentration or temperature, the variable in this case is water deficiency, using as index the difference between precipitation and evaporation. An arbitrary threshold value is chosen, perhaps a zero water deficiency. Then the cumulative deficiency and the time between threshold crossings are variables that may be examined statistically. 5. CONCENTRATION AND FLUX The flux of a quantity is its rate of transfer through a medium. ) is usually expressed in grams per square centimeter per unit time.
