Aviation Safety Human Factors System Engineering Flight Operations Economics Strategies Management by Hans M. Soekkha Book Resume:

Questions concerning safety in aviation attract a great deal of attention, due to the growth in this industry and the number of fatal accidents in recent years. The aerospace industry has always been deeply concerned with the permanent prevention of accidents and the conscientious safeguarding of all imaginable critical factors surrounding the organization of processes in aeronautical technology. However, the developments in aircraft technology and control systems require further improvements to meet future safety demands. This book embodies the proceedings of the 1997 International Aviation Safety Conference, and contains 60 talks by internationally recognized experts on various aspects of aviation safety. Subjects covered include: Human interfaces and man-machine interactions; Flight safety engineering and operational control systems; Aircraft development and integrated safety designs; Safety strategies relating to risk insurance and economics; Corporate aspects and safety management factors --- including airlines services and airport security environment.

Investigation of Outflow Strength Variability in Florida Downburst Producing Storms by J. T. Johnson Book Resume:

With the Federal Aviation Administration introducing Doppler weather radar to high-traffic airports in the form of the Terminal Doppler Weather Radar (TDWR), improved identification of dangerous windshears from downbursts and other weather phenomena will be possible. Using detection and prediction algorithms, the TDWR system will give controllers and pilots more information about the weather situation in the terminal area than is available heretofore. During the summer of 1990, a prototype TDWR system was tested and evaluated in Orlando, Florida with more than 500 downbursts detected. Many storms possessing apparently 'similar' characteristics were found to produce a wide variety of outflow speeds on days with nearly the same environmental structure. In this study, we use single-Doppler radar observations, surface mesonet data and a 3-D numerical cloud model in an attempt to determine causes for the observed variability. In particular, we examine 8 downbursts from August 18, 21 and 22 as well as 5 simulated downbursts. Our results show that the observed variability is explained neither by Doppler radar signatures known to precede downbursts (e. g., convergence and rotation aloft) nor by minor but detectable variations in the environment among the three days examined. Suspecting somewhat more subtle mechanisms, we examined detailed microphysical processes within numerically simulated storms.

Plant Disturbance Ecology by Edward A. Johnson Book Resume:

Disturbance ecology continues to be an active area of research, having undergone advances in many areas in recent years. One emerging direction is the increased coupling of physical and ecological processes, in which disturbances are increasingly traced back to mechanisms that cause the disturbances themselves, such as earth surface processes, mesoscale, and larger meteorological processes, and the ecological effects of interest are increasingly physiological. Plant Disturbance Ecology, 2nd Edition encourages movement away from the informal, conceptual approach traditionally used in defining natural disturbances and clearly presents how scientists can use a multitude of approaches in plant disturbance ecology. This edition includes nine revised chapters from the first edition, as well new, more comprehensive chapters on fire disturbance and beaver disturbance. Edited by leading experts in the field, Plant Disturbance Ecology, 2nd Edition is an essential resource for scientists interested in understanding plant disturbance and ecological processes. Advances understanding of natural disturbances by combining geophysical and ecological processes Provides a framework for collaboration between geophysical scientists and ecologists studying natural disturbances Includes fully updated research with 5 new chapters and revision of 11 chapters from the first edition

The Oxford Handbook of Non Synoptic Wind Storms by Horia Hangan Book Resume:

In different areas of the world, much of the damage due to wind is caused by non-synoptic, local wind storm events, such as tornadoes and downbursts. In North America the damage due to these winds is more than 65% of total wind damage, and there are no guidelines or code implementations to deal with such catastrophic events. As we enter the third decade of the twenty-first century, current research is in its first phase of addressing these types of events, from their characterization, simulation, and loading, to collapse-mode effects on buildings and structures, as well as socioeconomic implications. The need is clear to better understand non-synoptic local winds; properly simulate them; assess the difference in loading between these events and synoptic large-scale winds that have been part of the wind engineering practice for more than five decades; determine their statistics and associated risks; and apply this through guidelines, codes, risk mitigation, and adaptation responses to socioeconomic impact. The Oxford Handbook of Non-Synoptic Wind Storms, led by Dr. Horia Hangan and Dr. Ahsan Kareem, features nearly 30 chapters, contributed by an international panel of leading scientists, scholars, and engineers, that address these issues and stimulate thought, research, and responses to non-synoptic wind storm hazards in North America and worldwide. Together, these articles provide clear definitions of the problems to be tackled, offer a strategic framework for forward-looking research, identify the best-suited tools and methodologies to address the problems at hand, and suggest ways to maximize collaborative planning between the disciplines that will tackle these challenges.

American Environmentalism by J. Michael Martinez Book Resume:

Protecting the natural environment and promoting sustainability have become important objectives, but achieving such goals presents myriad challenges for even the most committed environmentalist. American Environmentalism: Philosophy, History, and Public Policy examines whether competing interests can be reconciled while developing consistent, coherent, effective public policy to regulate uses and protection of the natural environment without destroying the national economy. It then reviews a range of possible solutions. The book delves into key normative concepts that undergird American perspectives on nature by providing an overview of philosophical concepts found in the western intellectual tradition, the presuppositions inherent in neoclassical economics, and anthropocentric (human-centered) and biocentric (earth-centered) positions on sustainability. It traces the evolution of attitudes about nature from the time of the Ancient Greeks through Europeans in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, the Enlightenment and the American Founders, the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and up to the present. Building on this foundation, the author examines the political landscape as non-governmental organizations (NGOs), industry leaders, and government officials struggle to balance industrial development with environmental concerns. Outrageous claims, silly misrepresentations, bogus arguments, absurd contentions, and overblown prophesies of impending calamities are bandied about by many parties on all sides of the debate—industry spokespeople, elected representatives, unelected regulators, concerned citizens, and environmental NGOs alike. In lieu of descending into this morass, the author circumvents the silliness to explore the crucial issues through a more focused, disciplined approach. Rather than engage in acrimonious debate over minutiae, as so often occurs in the context of "green" claims, he recasts the issue in a way that provides a cohesive look at all sides.

Oklahoma Downbursts and Their Asymmetry by Michael D. Eilts Book Resume:

Doppler radar data, collected each spring in 1979-1984, wit h the two Doppler radars operated by the National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL), are used to investigate the asymmetry of low-altitude divergent outflows of convective storm downbursts in central Oklahoma. Outflows in Oklahoma storms can be highly asymmetric with horizontal shear along the axis of maximum divergence as much as 5.5 times the shear alon the axis of minimum divergence. The downbursts observed in central Oklahoma, all large-scale (4-10 km) events, were superposed with the maximum reflectivity core of the storms. However, scanning strategies may have precluded detection of smaller scale (
