This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1980 edition. Excerpt: ...( Dodson and Gentry, 1978; Gentry, 1978). More than 50 new species of higher plants have been described during the past few years from the Rio Palenque station (1.7 km2), one of the few remaining areas of tropical moist forest in western Ecuador. The study of this forest should be pushed on as vigorously as possible.
The book contains fundamentals of solar radiation, its ecological impacts, applications, especially in agriculture, architecture, thermal and electric energy. Chapters are written by numerous experienced scientists in the field from various parts of the world. Apart from chapter one which is the introductory chapter of the book, that gives a general topic insight of the book, there are 24 more chapters that cover various fields of solar radiation.
This however brings about
models and simulation, which is now applied generally to look into the inter-relationship
between the parameters and its resultant effects on the environments (Abdulkareem et al.,
2011). In this work, mathematical modelling that can be used to predict the quantity of heat
radiation from gas flaring station will be developed. The developed model will be simulated
and find interaction between various parameters such as distance, volume of gas flared,
flared stack efficiency that influence the rate of heat radiation from gas flaring station.
S. Robert Aiken was educated in the UK, Canada, and the United States.
He is a cultural and historical geographer with a long-standing interest in
tropical deforestation and environmental change in Southeast Asia, focusing
mainly on Malaysia and Indonesia. He is presently working on indigenous
land rights issues in Malaysia. Dr Aiken is coauthor (with C. H. Leigh) of
Vanishing Rain Forests: The Ecological Transition in Malaysia (Oxford:
Oxford University Press, 1992/1995) and author of Imperial Belvederes: The
Hill Stations of Malaya (Kuala Lumpur: Oxford University Press, 1994).
