The Palgrave Handbook of Climate Resilient Societies by Robert C. Brears
English | PDF | 2021 | 2283 Pages | ISBN : 3030424618 | 50.1 MB

The effects of climate change are beginning to be felt around the world with rising temperatures, changing precipitation levels, more frequent and severe storms and longer more intensive droughts threatening human life and livelihoods and damaging property and infrastructure. As such, society in all countries – both developing and developed – need to increase their resilience to the impacts of climate change, where resilience is the ability of a system to absorb stresses and adapt in ways that improve the overall sustainability of the system; enabling it to be better prepared for future climate change impacts.

Teaching and Learning Rural Livelihoods: A Guide for Educators, Students, and Practitioners

Teaching and Learning Rural Livelihoods: A Guide for Educators, Students, and Practitioners by Sandeep Tambe
English | PDF | 2022 | 192 Pages | ISBN : 3030904903 | 6.4 MB

This book synthesizes the conceptual and applied aspects of rural livelihoods as a discipline, and collates the analytical frameworks and approaches that have been designed, applied, and discussed over the last five decades. These include the sustainable livelihoods approach with its vulnerability-asset construct, collective governance of common pool resources, livelihood trajectories and poverty dynamics, rights-based approach and social justice, graduation approach for the ultra-poor, and the resilience framework to address complex risks. The book is divided into three parts, namely: introduction to rural livelihoods; synthesis of the present state of knowledge; and strengthening the knowledge action pathway. At the end of each chapter, a set of class exercises is provided to bring about a deeper understanding of these approaches and their application in real-life situations.

An Introduction to Human Prehistory in Arabia: The Lost World of the Southern Crescent

An Introduction to Human Prehistory in Arabia: The Lost World of the Southern Crescent by Jeffrey I. Rose
English | EPUB | 2022 | 344 Pages | ISBN : 3030956660 | 127.7MB

This textbook explores the mystery of human origins in the Arabian Peninsula, the lost Southern Crescent where humanity took its first steps toward civilization. Under Arabia’s surface of sand and stone lies a primordial realm of rolling grasslands, freshwater lakes, and river floodplains. This book aims to restore a critical missing chapter in the prehistory of our species that played out in this forgotten place of plenty.

Hilbert-Huang Transform Analysis of Hydrological and Environmental Time Series

Hilbert-Huang Transform Analysis of Hydrological and Environmental Time Series by A. Ramachandra Rao
English | PDF | 2008 | 250 Pages | ISBN : 1402064535 | 85.8 MB

The Hilbert-Huang Transform ((HHT) is a recently developed technique which is used to analyze nonstationary data. Hydrologic and environmental series are, in the main, analyzed by using techniques which were developed for stationary data. This has led to problems of interpretation of the results. Environmental and hydrologic series are quite often nonstationary. The basic objective of the material discussed in this book is to analyze these data by using methods based on the Hilbert-Huang transform. These results are compared to the results from the traditional methods such as those based on Fourier transform and other classical statistical tests.

Handbuch Betrieblicher Gewässerschutz by Gabi Förtsch
Deutsch | PDF | 2014 | 366 Pages | ISBN : 3658033231 | 12.9 MB

In Zukunft wird das gesellschaftliche Umfeld verstärkt Anforderungen an eine umweltorientierte, nachhaltige Unternehmensführung stellen. Grundsätzlich muss dazu das Unternehmen jederzeit die Rechtsvorschriften zum Schutz von Mensch und Umwelt erfüllen. Verstärkt werden die Anforderungen durch spezifische Kundenvorgaben. Nur wenn sich die Unternehmen den entsprechenden Entwicklungen stellen können sie die sich daraus ergebenden Möglichkeiten als unternehmerische Chancen nutzen. Um Unternehmen bei diesen Anforderungen zu unterstützen, wurde eine fünfbändige Handbuchreihe zum betrieblichen Umweltschutz entwickelt.

Professionelle Kompetenz von Biologielehrkräften: Eine Studie zu Berufswahlmotiven, motivationaler Orientierung, Wohlbefinden und Unterrichtsqualität by Marvin Milius
Deutsch | EPUB | 2022 | 251 Pages | ISBN : 3658375892 | 4.3 MB

Professionelle Handlungskompetenzen von Lehrkräften gelten als wichtige Voraussetzung für erfolgreichen Unterricht und das eigene Wohlbefinden im schulischen Arbeitskontext. In diesem Zusammenhang spielt vor allem die motivationale Orientierung, als ein Teilaspekt der Lehrkräftekompetenz, eine signifikante Rolle dabei, inwiefern bestimmte Verhaltensweisen und Anstrengungen beim Unterrichten zum Tragen kommen. Vor diesem Hintergrund stellt sich die Frage, welchen Einfluss motivationale Faktoren auf die Unterrichtsqualität und das arbeitsbezogene Wohlbefinden bei Biologielehrkräften haben.

Scientific Satellite and Moon-Based Earth Observation for Global Change

Scientific Satellite and Moon-Based Earth Observation for Global Change by Huadong Guo
English | EPUB | 2019 | 618 Pages | ISBN : 9811380309 | 102.4 MB

Global change involves complex and far-reaching variations in the Earth’s systems, and satellite observations have been widely used in global change studies. Over the past five decades, Earth observation has developed into a comprehensive system that can conduct dynamic monitoring of the land, the oceans and the atmosphere at the local, regional and even global scale. At the same time, although a large number of Earth observation satellites have been launched, very few of them are used in global change studies. The lack of scientific satellite programs greatly hinders research on global change.

The Fate of Persistent Organic Pollutants in the Environment by Ebru Mehmetli
English | PDF | 2008 | 468 Pages | ISBN : 1402066406 | 7 MB

Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are organic compounds of natural or anthropogenic origin that resist photolytic, chemical and biological degradation. They are characterized by low water solubility and high lipid solubility, resulting in bioaccumulation in fatty tissues of living organisms.
