  • "Jane Genovese is a public speaker, university graduate of Law and Arts (majoring in Psychology) and passionate global warming advocate. She became concerned about global warming after reading an article on Artic Eskimos losing their way of life due to rapid climate change. This motivated her to study Environmental law and International Environmental law at university. Shortly after, she created the “Global Warming: Too Hot to Handle?” workshop and this book with her mother, Sharon. In her spare time, Jane enjoys salsa dancing, watching good documentaries and going to the gym."......

  • Scientists predict the earth is facing 40-to-60 years of climate change, even if emissions of carbon dioxide and other global warming gases stopped today. One inevitable consequence of the greenhouse gases already in the atmosphere will be an increase in the frequency and severity of natural disaster events. Global Warming, Natural Hazards, and Emergency Management documents the imperative need for communities to prepare for the coming effects of climate change and provides a series of in-depth, road-tested recommendations on how to reduce risks for communities and businesses.

  • The rapidly increasing global population has dramatically increased the demands for natural resources and has caused significant changes in quantity and quality of natural resources.To achieve sustainable resource management, it is essential to obtain insight- ful guidance from emerging disciplines such as landscape ecology.This text addresses the links between landscape ecology and natural resource management.These links are discussed in the context of various landscape types,a diverse set of resources,and a wide range ofmanagement issues.

  • Economic and environmental consequences of natural and man-made disasters have grown exponentially during the past few decades. Whether from hurricanes, chemical spills, terrorist incidents, or other catastrophes, the negative impacts can often be felt on a global scale. Natural Hazards Analysis: Reducing the Impacts of Disasters evaluates critical preparedness issues that emergency managers must face before, during, and after disasters of any kind.

  • This book addresses the theme of the impacts of global warming on different specific fields, ranging from the regional and global economy, to agriculture, human health, urban areas, land vegetation, marine areas and mangroves. Despite the volume of scientific work that has been undertaken in relation to each of each of these issues, the study of the impacts of global warming upon them is a relatively recent and unexplored topic. The chapters of this book offer a broad overview of potential applications of global warming science.

  • This book contains the papers presented at the International Conference on the Management of Natural Resources, Sustainable Development and Ecological Hazards, which was held in Patagonia, Argentina. The Conference name was shortened to ‘The Ravage of the Planet’ to emphasize the urgency of the problems under discussion. The state of our planet continues to deteriorate at an alarming rate. We have arrived at a situation where we need to determine urgent solutions before we reach a point of irreversible damage....

  • The Economics of Global Health Political and economic concerns have often guided global health interventions. As mentioned previously, early efforts to control yellow fever were tied to the completion of the Panama Canal. However, the precise nature of the link between economics and health remains a matter for debate. Some economists and demographers argue that economic development is the key to improving the health status of populations, while others maintain that ill health is the chief barrier to development in poor countries.

  • An important problem in conformal geometry is the construction of conformal metrics for which a certain curvature quantity equals a prescribed function, e.g. a constant. In two dimensions, the uniformization theorem assures the existence of a conformal metric with constant Gauss curvature. Moreover, J. Moser [20] proved that for every positive function f on S 2 satisfying f (x) = f (−x) for all x ∈ S 2 there exists a conformal metric on S 2 whose Gauss curvature is equal to f . A natural conformal invariant in dimension four is 1 Q = − (∆R −...

  • In this paper we prove the global existence and uniqueness (regularity) of strong solutions to the three-dimensional viscous primitive equations, which model large scale ocean and atmosphere dynamics. 1. Introduction Large scale dynamics of oceans and atmosphere is governed by the primitive equations which are derived from the Navier-Stokes equations, with rotation, coupled to thermodynamics and salinity diffusion-transport equations, which account for the buoyancy forces and stratification effects under the Boussinesq approximation. ...

  • We obtain global well-posedness, scattering, and global L10 spacetime t,x bounds for energy-class solutions to the quintic defocusing Schr¨dinger equao tion in R1+3 , which is energy-critical. In particular, this establishes global existence of classical solutions. Our work extends the results of Bourgain [4] and Grillakis [20], which handled the radial case.

  • In this paper we extend M. Lyubich’s recent results on the global hyperbolicity of renormalization of quadratic-like germs to the space of C r unimodal maps with quadratic critical point. We show that in this space the boundedtype limit sets of the renormalization operator have an invariant hyperbolic structure provided r ≥ 2 + α with α close to one.

  • Birds, by their very existence, enhance our daily lives. For many of us, it is a thrill to see the splash of a Brown Thrasher in a birdbath, or the flash of red in green woods as a tanager darts past. It is a gift of nature that such birds – which play an important role in healthy ecosystems by controlling pests, dispersing seeds, and pollinating plants – are also so beautiful and such a joy to watch.
