Earth and Planetary Sciences

Cambridge Scholars Publishing’s Earth and Planetary Sciences books deal with the entirety of the cross section of our planet, from the substrata to the furthest reaches of the atmosphere. In particular, our titles in this area analyse geology, petrology, marine science and technology, and earth surface processes, as well as the ways in which the earth is being transformed by geoengineering and climate change.

Methods of Using Geoinformation Technologies in Mining Engineers’ Training

Mining engineers or engineers of mining operations are today engaged in mining iron, nonferrous, rare metals, manganese and uranium ores, coal and other nonmetallic minerals. In the current environment, mining enterprises’ sustainability has become a priority and calls for conducting mining operations according to accepted emission...

Viscous Flow Environments in Oceans and Inland Waters

This text targets advanced undergraduate students, graduate students and practicing aquatic scientists who seek to understand effects of flow on aquatic processes but have had little prior exposure to fluid dynamics. It provides a self-contained introduction to flows at small scales within oceans and fresh waters in ubiquitous sett...

The Ocean’s Role in Climate Change

The principal focus of this book is the physical processes in the World Ocean which regulate the interannual-to-multidecadal natural variability of the climate system, and some key atmospheric and marine manifestations of this variability. It analyses a number of Atlantic and Indo-Pacific signals, and describes their regional atmos...

A Global Approach to Data Value Maximization

This book presents a systematic discussion about methods and techniques used to extract the maximum informative value from complex data sets. A multitude of approaches and techniques can be applied for that purpose, including data fusion and model integration, multimodal data analysis in different physical domains, audio-video disp...

The Ages of the Earth

Negationism is an irrational but useful tool for manipulation. Almost nobody supports the Flat Earth model or the geocentrism, but some European educational laws still offer a confessional education that treats as real the myth about Adam and Eve. This book recounts the struggle that human mind has maintained, over two millennia, a...

The Perils of Climate Risk

This book provides the average person with something to do about climate change. Based upon the contributing authors’ years of technical expertise, and their participation in a second international workshop on climate risk, it concludes with a list of action items for the old and young alike. With a ‘systems thinking’ approach, the...

The Global Carbon Cycle and the Evolution of Photosynthesis

The book deals with the problem of the interaction and interconditionality of the various processes occurring in both the Earth’s crust and the biosphere. It proposes a model of the global carbon cycle explaining the nature and mechanism of these interactions, showing that the key element of this interaction is the photosynthesis c...

The Three–ray Megacontinent of the Earth

This book explores many mysterious features of the structure and evolution of the Earth’s continents, still unknown to the scientific community and a wider audience. Science has now proved that the southern continents of South America, Africa and Australia represent the southern ends of a single three-beam megacontinent. It began t...

Indian Uranium Deposits

This volume presents a comprehensive and systematic account of diverse types of Uranium (U-) deposits. It deals with the discovery and establishment of U-resources in a deposit by field- and laboratory-based geological, geophysical, petro-mineralogical and geochemical exploration. It also considers the drilling, mining and mineral ...

Perspectives on the Age of the Earth and Why They Matter

Polls show almost half of US adults believe that Earth is only 10,000 years old, whereas scientists consider our planet to be 4.56 billion years old. Examining these conflicting views illuminates aspects of the perceived conflict between religion and science, and helps us understand the battles between “evolutionist” and “creationi...

A ‘Triple Bottom Line’ Approach to Advanced Project Evaluation

The concept of ‘the triple bottom line’ has recently emerged to describe a new framework for development aimed at achieving economic and social balance while maintaining the long-term integrity of ecological systems. This requires measuring not only the economic viability of projects, but also their impact on the environment and th...

Forensic Explosion Seismology

This book discusses three major physical phenomena for active source seismology, namely underwater explosions, underground nuclear explosions, and large-scale on-surface chemical explosions. In particular, contributors consider how to use the technologies and applications in active source seismology and seismo-acoustics, rather tha...
