Instant wind forecasting

   Here is a book prompting questions - and providing some answers - relating to the behaviors' of the wind in different situations. Note that it is not intended to cover absolutely all circumstances because of its limited volume, but the author of this publication still hopes that it will be very helpful to the readers who require a bit deeper insight into the subject that it is usually provided by the official weather forecasts. It is not actually a sort of textbook on the wind; however, some of the explanations have been provided in the book, but that is a minimum required to make the content of the publication understandable to all readers who may not be professionals. Such approach is expected to appeal to all people daunted by the long wind explanations. The book is a good choice for the average reader since it does not require them to possess any deep knowledge of the meteorology and associated terminology. This new release of the popular volume has been seriously updated with numerous informative images and data tables in comparison to the previous edition. There are several completely new chapters such as the one dedicated to the micro wind shifts or the winds that are considered specific to the Mediterranean region. Check this publication for the storm forecasting, as well.

Chemistry and Physics of Mechanical Hardness

   One of the principal goals declared by the author of this volume was to establish the connection between the mechanical hardness numbers and the physics of the chemical bonds in quantitative and simple ways. In the past, this has not been achieved in the effective manner as the commonly involved atomic processes have not been properly an fully identified. Though it is still true for the cases of the complex atomic structures, the author of the title believes that the relatively simple prototype cases are duly understood today. It should be taken into consideration, however, that the associated mechanisms change with the types of the chemical bonding. And no universal chemical mechanism exists there to determine the mechanical hardness. The author has made an attempt to develop the proper understanding of the plastic deformation and hardness; this is definitely not a straightforward task as the literature sources covering this subject is still partly confused. The chapters of the volume cover the indentation and plastic deformation, covalent semiconductors and chemical bonding, transition metals, ionic and molecular crystals, glasses and polymers, chemical and hot hardness, simple alloys and metals, inter-metallic compounds, hard metals and "superhard" materials, actually everything one will require to be aware of...

Principles of marine bioacoustics
   People have always been seriously fascinated by the marine life, starting from the smallest diatoms and up to the huge marine mammals inhabiting our planet, such as blue whales. It should be noted, however, that the process of studying of marine life is quite a difficult task taking into account the fact that the ocean environment is vast and also opaque to most of the instruments and it can also be considered a hostile environment in which the experiments and researches may be conducted. The use of the acoustics is a good practical way of the effective study of marine animal life. The advantage is that the acoustic energy propagates through the water much more efficiently than most of the other forms of energy and that is why it can easily be utilized by marine animals for various purposes and also by the scientists dealing with the study of their natural history and behavior. Understanding the behavior of marine animals has always involved zoologists and psychologists and the science of marine bioacoustics continues to be considered a diverse discipline which involves investigators from different backgrounds and with different skills and knowledge. The interdisciplinary nature of this science presents a serious challenge in preparing a single volume meaningful enough to the students and professionals with the interest in this field.

Advances in Coastal and Ocean Engineering

   Most of the planet's surface is covered by the ocean waters. Many of the important aspects of our day-to-day activities may easily be affected by the waves in one of another way. And sometimes the waves can result in disasters, such as the tsunami occurred in the Indian Ocean some years ago. This demonstrate how critical it is for the people to thoroughly understand the ocean waves paying particular attention to the large waves. One of the ways to get to this understanding is to conduct the numerical simulation on the basis of the non-linear theory. There have been several serious researches in this field in the past decades by the development of the different numerical methods and their application to the emerging problems; however, there has been no comprehensive volume that would reflect those advances. This book should bridge the subject gap. It consists of the eighteen self-contained chapters worked out by more than fifty professional authors from twelve different countries, with most of the authors being the world recognized experts in the field. The content of each chapter is mainly based on the researches conducted by the authors. Altogether the chapters of the book are dealing with the literally all numerical methods currently employed to the simulation of the non-linear water waves, covering most of the interesting and important applications.
