CIRCULATION PROCESSES IN THE ATMOSPHERE AND GLACIER DYNAMICS
CIRCULATION PROCESSES IN THE ATMOSPHERE AND GLACIER DYNAMICS
V. Fedorov, Moscow State University,
ISBN 978-1-907343-84-1; Approx 380 pages - Hardback - September, 2014

Circulation processes in the atmosphere are making significant changes in the annual , seasonal and diurnal variation of air temperature, which is determined mainly by solar energy with circulation processes in the atmosphere associated with the formation and distribution of precipitation. Thus, circulation processes affect the course of the main climatic elements defining the conditions for the development of glaciers and therefore represent one of the most important factors in the spread of glaciers in the area and their development over time.

PHYSICS OF GALACTIC DISKS
PHYSICS OF GALACTIC DISKS
A.M. Fridman and A.V. Khoperskov
ISBN-13: 978-1-907343-30-8
756 pages - Hardback - January 15 2013
£115.00/$180.00

The book includes a number of new data obtained in recent years, in particular material relating to the recently discovered new structures in spiral galaxies: giant anticyclones, cyclones and slow bars. New methods for the detection of these structures are described. Types of vertical motions of stars and gas in the galaxies, whether due to the presence of spiral arms, or hose instability are discussed. An important place is given to modern numerical methods for describing the dynamics of galaxies, stellar as well as gas components. Algorithms of numerical models and a number of important results are presented. More...


THE FUTURE OF POST-HUMAN GEOGRAPHY: A PREFACE TO A NEW THEORY OF ENVIRONMENTS AND THEIR INTERACTIONS
THE FUTURE OF POST-HUMAN GEOGRAPHY: A PREFACE TO A NEW THEORY OF ENVIRONMENTS AND THEIR INTERACTIONS
Peter Baofu (USA)
ISBN-13: 978-1-907343-69-8
590 pages - Hardback - January 2012
£50.00/$80.00
this book provides an alternative (better) way to understand the future of geography, especially in the dialectic context of environments and their interactions-while learning from different approaches in the literature but without favoring any one of them (nor integrating them, since they are not necessarily compatible with each other). In other words, this book offers a new theory (that is, the interventive-reshaping theory of geography) More...


THE FUTURE OF POST-HUMAN GEOLOGY A PREFACE TO A NEW THEORY OF STATICS AND DYNAMICS
THE FUTURE OF POST-HUMAN GEOLOGY
A PREFACE TO A NEW THEORY OF STATICS AND DYNAMICS

Peter Baofu (USA)
ISBN-13: 978-1-907343-16-2
450 pages - Hardback - November 2010
£50.00/$80.00
This book offers an alternative (better) way to understand the future of geology, especially in the context of statics and dynamics-while learning from different approaches in the literature but without favoring any one of them (nor integrating them, since they are not necessarily compatible with each other). Thus, this book offers a new theory to go beyond the existing approaches in the literature on geology in an original way. More...
