    R99,00 R259,70

    Global Perspectives on Tropical Cyclones: From Science to Mitigation

    R2 604,00
    Presents a comprehensive review of the state of science and forecasting of tropical cyclones together with the application of this science to disaster mitigation, hence the tag: From Science to Mitigation.

    Introduction to flood hydrology

    R310,00 R335,00
    Why should engineering lecturers use this textbook to teach flood hydrology to undergraduate engineers, technologists and technicians?

    Empirical-Statistical Downscaling

    R1 596,00
    Empirical-statistical downscaling (ESD) is a method for estimating how local climatic variables are affected by large-scale climatic conditions. ESD has been applied to local climate/weather studies for years. This textbook is suitable for next-generation climate scientists.

    The life & love of the sea

    Since time immemorial, humans have been captivated by water. No wonder: ItÆs the most omnipresent substance on Earth and without it life itself would be impossible.

    Pterosaurs: Natural History, Evolution, Anatomy

    R514,00 R569,87
    "For 150 million years, the skies didn't belong to birds--they belonged to the pterosaurs. These flying reptiles, which include the pterodactyls, shared the world with the nonavian dinosaurs until their extinction 65 million years ago. Some pterosaurs, such as the giant azhdarchids, were the largest flying animals of all time, with wingspans exceeding thirty feet and standing heights comparable to modern giraffes. This richly illustrated book takes an unprecedented look at these astonishing creatures, presenting the latest findings on their anatomy, ecology, and extinction. Pterosaurs features some 200 stunning illustrations, including original paintings by Mark Witton and photos of rarely seen fossils. After decades of mystery, paleontologists have finally begun to understand how pterosaurs are related to other reptiles, how they functioned as living animals, and, despite dwarfing all other flying animals, how they managed to become airborne. Here you can explore the fossil evidence of pterosaur behavior and ecology, learn about the skeletal and soft-tissue anatomy of pterosaurs, and consider the newest theories about their cryptic origins. This one-of-a-kind book covers the discovery history, paleobiogeography, anatomy, and behaviors of more than 130 species of pterosaur, and also discusses their demise at the end of the Mesozoic; The most comprehensive book on pterosaurs ever published; features some 200 illustrations, including original paintings by the author; covers every known species and major group of pterosaurs; describes pterosaur anatomy, ecology, behaviors, diversity, and more; encourages further study with 500 references to primary pterosaur literature"--

    Fossil Primates

    R1 023,00
    A unique reconstruction of the paleobiology of fossil non-human primates and their key role in inferring evolutionary processes on earth.

    Physical Oceanography: Developments Since 1950

    R3 522,00
    An integrated assessment of three major fields in physical oceanography. It provides both scientific views and a historical overview of these fields.

    Water and the Future of Humanity: Revisiting Water Security

    This book examines actions scientists, policy makers and consumers can take to meet the water management challenges of a warming planet. It details a global water demand model up to the year 2050, accounting for socioeconomic trends and climate change.

    An Introduction to Seismology, Earthquakes and Earth Structure

    R1 122,00 R2 097,43
    * Multidisciplinary examples throughout the text - catering to students in varied disciplines (geology, mineralogy, petrology, physics, etc.). * Most up to date book on the market - includes recent seismic events such as the 1999 Earthquakes in Turkey, Greece, and Taiwan).

    Amphibian Evolution: The Life of Early Land Vertebrates

    R1 836,00
    This book focuses on the first vertebrates to conquer land and their long journey to become fully independent from the water. It traces the origin of tetrapod features and tries to explain how and why they transformed into organs that permit life on land.

    Sedimentology and Stratigraphy

    R898,00 R1 757,07
    This fully revised and updated edition introduces the reader to sedimentology and stratigraphic principles, and provides tools for the interpretation of sediments and sedimentary rocks.

    Geomorphology: The Mechanics and Chemistry of Landscapes

    R1 984,00
    A modern, quantitative, process-oriented approach to geomorphology and the role of Earth surface processes in shaping landforms, starting from basic principles.

    Dinosaur Paleobiology

    R1 855,00
    The study of dinosaurs has been experiencing a remarkable renaissance over the past few decades. Scientific understanding of dinosaur anatomy, biology, and evolution has advanced to such a degree that paleontologists often know more about 100-million-year-old dinosaurs than many species of living organisms.

    Boundary Layer Climates

    R1 971,00
    Offers a description of atmospheric layers sensitively pitched for the non-meteorological specialist in a variety of disciplines: in geography, agriculture, forestry, ecology, engineering, environment and planning.
