The publication of this book is timely - at the time of writing we are in the midst of very troubled times for the dry-bulk shipping markets. Falling demand for dry commodities, an oversupply of ships and a freeze in credit have seen daily hire rates for bulk carriers drop from all-time highs to near all-time lows within the space of a few months.

From freight rates to bunker prices, credit risk to asset values, the financial risks faced by shipping market participants are significant. The book provides readers with a proper understanding of the measurement process and on how to manage the volatility of the freight rate; the information in the book will also let the reader explore the options that are available to the professionals of the shipping industry.

 

 

The authors have made a brilliant compilation of the thorough investigation of the markets conducted y the recognized experts. That is why this volume is a must-have for both practitioners and researchers. Their efforts resulted in a truly unique publication combining both theoretical and practical aspects or the risk management, the readers who have gone through the material included in the book will get some essential knowledge of risk assessment and be enabled to understand all major freight derivatives tools.

The present publication is dedicated toxins in the sea water and fresh water; it is intended to present the structure of the main toxins having the aquatic origin - the reader will find information relating to the distribution of subject toxins, producing various species and vectors, some of the important toxico-kinetic properties, regulatory management aspects etc. The main species of those associated with the injuries have also been addressed in this volume.

Among the marine toxins that have been covered within this publication there are ciguatoxina, equinatoxins, brevetoxins and some others - note that all of them could be lethal. Nowadays, both sea- and fresh water environments are considered new frontiers of humanity; however, the continuing increase in economic and tourist activities is provoking some nasty encounters between people and aquatic animals. The swimmers, surfers, divers and fishermen are becoming main victims. Unfortunately, today it is still not possible to adequately identify, know and treat the envenomations that are commonly caused by the poisonous and venomous animals.

 

 

Plus, it shall be underlined as necessary that we are still not fully aware of the huge potential of the pharmacologic effects their toxins may have. That is why it does make sense to go through the chapters of this volume to have better idea of this subject quite important any marine scientist.

Nowadays, the heat pipes are deservedly considered one of the best technical solutions available for the passive thermal control, note they are also very friendly to the environment. The present publication comprises a work by the industry expert Bahman Zohuri, who did his best to provide readers with the useful practical study of heat pipe engineering including a very valuable discussion on how the application of the heat pipes could be further optimized and made more efficient.

The book provides a general introduction to the design and operational principles and explores the practical applications of heat pipes. The volume offers the readers a good tech review of mass and heat transfer theory related to the performance and covers the common technical issues that might theoretically affect the successful operation of the heat pipes. Subject matters would generally include balancing of the loads, compatibility of the construction materials, applicable power limitations, thermal resistance issues, rage of the operating temperature, and operating orientation.

 

 

The author has also compared the results of the calculations with the experimental data obtained from numerous sources. He has also provided the explanation to the readers of where and how exactly they could access the computer codes and relevant PC programs to the design and prediction of the performance.

We are hereby offering the latest and popular English edition of maybe the most popular handbooks of diesel engines providing remarkably comprehensive overview of every type and size of subject engines, from the smallest single cylinder diesel engines and up through the huge two stroke diesel engines installed on board marine vessels.

The material presented in the book is mainly based on the valuable contributions made by almost sixty world recognized industry experts collaborating together. Moreover, in addition to the theoretical fundamentals, this publication treats in detail the critically important subjects of the atmospheric emission, energy efficiency matters, injection systems and exhaust gas after treatment, electronic engine control and management, as well as the conventional and newly introduced alternative fuels.

 

 

This handbook would actually serve as a truly indispensable companion to the study of both theoretical and practical issues of the diesel engines. We believe that it would be equally required to the industry professionals, as well as to the students of engineering (including marine engineering) and in fact everyone interested in learning a bit more about the technology of the diesel engines, their working principles, understanding their functions, interaction of various systems within the engine and other related aspects.

The content of this volume bases on the materials that have been presented in the course of the international conference hosted by the Centre d’Océanologie of Marseille in 2008; it covers a wealth of all hot topics that were related to the ways of interaction of the mankind with the marine environment. The chapters of this book present work on the key areas of oceanography.

It features the most recognized scientific works by the world leading researchers in the field of oceanography from Japan and France and demonstrates the strength of the links between the two scientific communities. The materials have been arranged into six main sections. The first section is dedicated to the aquaculture and covers the newly developed methods for seed culture, quality control of the cultured fish, genetically modified fish, salmon resource creation etc. The second section addresses the artificial reefs and touches the legal aspects, new experiences and developments.

 

 

The next section deals with the marine biological diversity and covers biological invasion, adaptation and distribution issues. The remaining three sections deal with the coastal managements, observation of the marine environment, and physical, biogeochemical, biological and chemical functions. At the end of the book there are lists of participants, oral presentations and numerous photographs.

The publication that is offered to our users today has been specifically prepared and released for the industry professionals who are working in the fields of applied maths, fluid mechanics, physical oceanography, geophysics and other related fields and also for the students learning subject disciplines. The authors have attempted to detail the significant progress that could easily be observed in the understanding of the most important physical mechanisms of the "rogue wave" phenomenon during last several years.

To discuss subject phenomenon, the authors have used the fully non-linear hydrodynamic numerical models. Throughout this interesting publication, the readers will find combinations of theoretical and empirical treatment required for the proper and complete examination of the problem. we would say that this book shall definitely be considered as a valuable and very helpful contribution to the technical literature that is covering the wave theory as well as statistics, since it helps to fill in the existing serious gap in people's knowledge of unusual waves.

 

 

The book will for sure present a great professional interest to both the engineers and scientists who are studying the physical oceanography as well as wave dynamics and other related aspects, or involved in the relevant scientific researches.
