01. Coastal

1.Physical of Tsunami

41ypb-9z15l

There has been significant progress in tsunami research, monitoring and mitigation within the last decade. This book summarizes the state-of-the-art knowledge on tsunamis. It presents a comprehensive overview of tsunamis, seaquakes and other catastrophic ocean phenomena. It describes up-to-date models of tsunamis generated by a submarine earthquake, landslide, volcanic eruption, meteorites impact, and moving atmospheric pressure inhomogeneities. Models of tsunami propagation and run-up are also discussed.

The book investigates methods of tsunami monitoring including satellite altimetry and the study of paleotsunamis. Non-linear phenomena in tsunami source are discussed in the context of their contribution to the wave amplitude and intensification of the vertical exchange in ocean.

The book is intended for scientists, researchers and specialists in oceanography, geophysics, seismology, hydro-acoustics, geology, geomorphology, including the engineering and insurance industries.

Professor Boris W. Levin is a Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Director of the Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics, Far East Branch of RAS, in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Russia. He is a member of IUGG Tsunami Commission, American Geophysical Union, Seismological Society of America and National Geographic Society. He has more than 200 scientific publications in the fields of geophysics, tsunamis, seaquakes, seismology.

Mikhail A. Nosov is a Professor of Physics of Sea and Inland Waters at the Faculty of Physics of M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia. He is an active participant to the EGS and EGU meetings. As co-convener and UNESCO contractor, he organized the International Workshop on “Local Tsunami Warning and Mitigation” (2002). In 2005 he was awarded Plinius Medal of European Geosciences Union. He has more than 50 scientific publications in the fields of marine physics, tsunamis, seaquakes

2. GIS for Coastal Zone Management (Research Monographs in GIS)

Increasingly used to analyze and manage marine and coastal zones, Geographical Information Systems (GIS) provide a powerful set of tools for integrating and processing spatial information. These technologies are increasingly used in the management and analysis of the coastal zone. Supplying the guidance necessary to use these tools, GIS for Coastal Zone Management explores key technical, theoretical, and applications issues. Drawing on the practical experience of experts in the field, the book discusses recent developments and specific applications. A comprehensive, authoritative, and up-to-date overview of the state-of-the-art in coastal zone GIS applications, this down-to-earth and practical book puts the science in a management context. The chapters present groundbreaking coastal applications of GIS based decision support tools, spatial data infrastructures, remote sensing technology including LiDAR and CASI, and more. Covering a broad range of topics by international experts, the logical organization supplies a flow and structure to the entire book that makes the information not only easily accessible but immediately applicable.

3. Coastal and Marine Geo-Information Systems, Applying the Technology to the Environment

This volume comprises a collection of 40 chapters by experts dealing with the application of Geographical Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing, cartography, visualisation and Global Positioning Systems (GPS) to coastal and marine environments around the world. Aimed primarily at the practising marine and coastal zone manager, it provides an up-to-date examination of the application of geo-information and spatial technologies to a wide range of topics such as fisheries, coastal geomorphology, the use of remotely sensed imagery, coastal vegetation mapping, coastal pollution, landscape ecology, and decision support systems (DSS). Audience: This book should be useful to researchers, managers and practitioners at coastal organisations, agencies and research centers, as well as professionals in the marine and coastal GIS and remote sensing industry
