Beauty from the Beast

Exploring The Geology Of The Inland Northwest [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Beauty from the Beast by Robert Lillie Book Resume:

The same geological forces that threaten our lives with earthquakes and volcanic eruptions also nourish our spirits by forming spectacular mountains, valleys, and coastlines. Dr. Robert J. Lillie relates this "Beauty from the Beast" story of the Pacific Northwest and surrounding regions by highlighting spectacular scenery in national, state and local parklands. Dr. Lillie draws on his experience as a geology professor, park ranger and graphic illustrator to reveal plate tectonics in action. His vivid photos and color graphics reveal the basics of Earth science in an easy-to-understand format. Each chapter includes fun demonstrations involving food, state quarters, decks of cards and other everyday objects to help readers appreciate the region's landscapes and the geological forces that created them. The initial chapter introduces the reader to plate tectonics and its bearing on landforms, earthquakes and volcanoes. Subsequent chapters zoom in on landscapes at the three types of plate boundaries and a hotspot. "Beauty from the Beast" reminds Northwest residents and visitors that their hometowns and iconic parklands are subject to geologic processes that affect their lives and livlihoods. By learning to live with the beast of earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions they can more-fully appreciate the beauty that surrounds them.

Integrated Assessment of Sustainable Energy Systems in China, The China Energy Technology Program

Exploring The Geology Of The Inland Northwest [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Integrated Assessment of Sustainable Energy Systems in China, The China Energy Technology Program by China Energy Technology Program Book Resume:

There is no progress without access to energy and no energy use without supporting technology. Only one sixth of the earth's population has an easy access to sufficient energy. The other five sixth will increase their demand for energy in the future. The global environmental problems we face will increasingly affect our daily life. Adjust and fair price for energy is necessary for comparing the pros and cons of energy technology application. The road to an objective analysis of an energy system is called "Integrated Energy Analysis" and covers a cradle-to-grave system approach. This book contains such an analysis of the electricity energy system in Shandong-Province, one of China's 32 Provinces. It also presents a decision support analysis tool. It should allow decision makers in China to choose the right system of electricity supply with minimum environmental impact and/or minimum "true" cost. The book contains a DVD, which contains a more extensive record of the research results obtained. It also contains all the tools, which have been developed. The methodology presented in this book and DVD is easily applicable to other Provinces in China and also other countries and regions. This research presents a pioneering effort in bringing together the three essential partners for any such research program, Industry, Academia and the Stakeholders, i.e. prospective users of the results. An important aspect of this international program with 75 participants was the leadership provided by a dedicated and professional Program Management Team from Industry. Developing a sustainable energy supply in China is an essential part of a global strategy to promote development while mitigating environmental pollution and the effect of greenhouse gas emissions.

Late Cenozoic Yushe Basin, Shanxi Province, China: Geology and Fossil Mammals

Exploring The Geology Of The Inland Northwest [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Late Cenozoic Yushe Basin, Shanxi Province, China: Geology and Fossil Mammals by Richard H Tedford,Zhan-Xiang Qiu,Lawrence J Flynn Book Resume:

The Late Cenozoic Yushe Basin, Shanxi Province, China embodies the bulk of our knowledge on successions of terrestrial vertebrates in the northern part of East Asia. Everything we know about Asian mammals of the last 6 million years has a historical basis in the documentation of the geology of Yushe. This volume introduces the basin in its geological setting, describes the succession of fossiliferous strata, and shows how it is dated. It develops an unsurpassed level of precision for its age control. Geological maps and stratigraphic sections provide the backbone for individual studies to follow on varied fossil groups. The volume explores the history of exploration of the last century in Yushe Basin and places development of paleontology there into the context of the birth of the modern epoch of science in China.

From Meteorite Impact to Constellation City

Exploring The Geology Of The Inland Northwest [Pdf/ePub] eBook

From Meteorite Impact to Constellation City by Oiva W. Saarinen Book Resume:

From Meteorite Impact to Constellation City is a historical geography of the City of Greater Sudbury. The story that began billions of years ago encompasses dramatic physical and human events. Among them are volcanic eruptions, two meteorite impacts, the ebb and flow of continental glaciers, Aboriginal occupancy, exploration and mapping by Europeans, exploitation by fur traders and Canadian lumbermen and American entrepreneurs, the rise of global mining giants, unionism, pollution and re-greening, and the creation of a unique constellation city of 160,000. The title posits the book’s two main themes, one physical in nature and the other human: the great meteorite impact of some 1.85 billion years ago and the development of Sudbury from its inception in 1883. Unlike other large centres in Canada that exhibit a metropolitan form of development with a core and surrounding suburbs, Sudbury developed in a pattern resembling a cluster of stars of differing sizes. Many of Sudbury’s most characteristic attributes are undergoing transformation. Its rocky terrain and the negative impact from mining companies are giving way to attractive neighbourhoods and the planting of millions of trees. Greater Sudbury’s blue-collar image as a union powerhouse in a one-industry town is also changing; recent advances in the fields of health, education, retailing, and the local and international mining supply and services sector have greatly diversified its employment base. This book shows how Sudbury evolved from a village to become the regional centre for northeastern Ontario and a global model for economic diversification and environmental rehabilitation.

Exploring the Nexus of Geoecology, Geography, Geoarcheology and Geotourism: Advances and Applications for Sustainable Development in Environmental Sciences and Agroforestry Research

Exploring The Geology Of The Inland Northwest [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Exploring the Nexus of Geoecology, Geography, Geoarcheology and Geotourism: Advances and Applications for Sustainable Development in Environmental Sciences and Agroforestry Research by Haroun Chenchouni,Ezzoura Errami,Fernando Rocha,Luisa Sabato Book Resume:

This edited volume is based on the best papers accepted for presentation during the 1st Springer Conference of the Arabian Journal of Geosciences (CAJG-1), Tunisia 2018. The book is of interest to all researchers in the fields of Environmental Sciences, Geoecology, Agroforestry, Geography, Geoarcheology and Geotourism. The Mediterranean Basin, Middle East and surrounding regions are ecologically unique due to large differences in climatic, geographical, and geological features, which grant countries of these regions with significant socio-economic potentials in terms of fertile agricultural lands, rich natural resources, and the existence of strategic resources such as crude oil and natural gas. However, the valuation of ecosystem functions, goods and services of natural and cultural heritages and bioressources of these regions is still little known. This volume offers an overview of the latest information and ideas on the physical environment of these regions, assessment and monitoring of natural bioressources including flora and fauna, and the use of cutting-edge methods for the development of sustainable agricultural systems. It gives also new socio-economic insights on geotourism and archaeology. Main topics include:1. Environmental Assessment and Monitoring of Agrisilvicultural Systems2. Environmental Impacts and Restoration Ecology of Natural and Agricultural Habitats3. Investigations and Applications in Environmental Biotechnology4. Spatiotemporal Patterns of Marine Biodiversity and Terrestrial Paleobiodiversity5. Socio-economics of Geotourism and Archaeology
