This second edition has been fully revised and updated including new colour illustrations increasing the striking spread of full colour diagrams throughout the book. The clarity of the text has been improved, providing comprehensive coverage of the evolution of ocean basins and their structure in a clear, concise manner aimed specifically at the student market. In this second edition the technological advances in fields as diverse as: deeptowed instruments for sniffing' hydrothermal plumes mapping the seafloor by sophisticated sonar techniques threedimensional imaging of crustal structure by seismic tomography the use of satellites for navigation, and for making precise measurements of the height of the seasurface The first chapters describe the processes that shape the ocean basins, determine the structure and composition of oceanic crust and control the major features of continental margins. How the 'hot springs' of the oceanic ridges cycle chemical elements between seawater and oceanic crust is then explored. Sediment distributions are examined next, to demonstrate how sediments can preserve a record of past climatic and sealevel changes. Finally, the role of the oceans as an integral part of global chemical changes is reviewed.

AMetals and chemical changeThis book looks at how molecules react, and how the feasibility and outcome of chemical reactions can be predicted. Beginning with an introduction to the concept of an activity series of metals, Metals and Chemical Change then introduces chemical thermodynamics (enthalpy, entropy and free energy) and applies the concept to both inorganic and organic elements. A Case Study on batteries and fuel cells is also included. The accompanying CD-ROM includes video sequences of the reactions of metals with water, acid and aqueous ions, and gives the reader an opportunity to make experimental observations and predictions about chemical behaviour. A comprehensive Data Book of chemical and physical constants is included, along with a set of interactive self-assessment questions. The Molecular World series provides an integrated introduction to all branches of chemistry for both students wishing to specialise and those wishing to gain a broad understanding of chemistry and its relevance to the everyday world and to other areas of science+-+4642002936324100612ocn233575882file20050.47Burgess, HilaryAchieving your doctorate in educationDSU Title III 2007-2012+-+47266476969958ocn000153843book19710.53Gass, I.

Renewable Energy examines both the practical and economic potential of the renewable energy sources to meet this challenge. The underlying physical and technological principles behind deriving power from direct solar (solar thermal and photovoltaics), indirect solar (biomass, hydro, wind and wave) and non-solar (tidal and geothermal) energy sources are explained, within the context of their environmental impacts, their economics and their future prospects. Together with its companion volume, Energy Systems and Sustainability, this book provides both perspective and detail on the relative merits and state of progress of technologies for utilizing the various 'renewables'. The analysis considers emissions, sustainability, cost implications and energy security, as political and economic pressures move society towards a low-carbon future. From an overview of basic energy conversion processes, through a discussion of the individual renewable sources, to a concluding examination of the prospects for their integration into national and international networks, this book provides a valuable insight into prospects for the renewables+-+060910346532485410ocn297540190file20070.39Thomas, AlanResearch skills for policy and development how to find out fastUnlike a simple h̀ow to' guide, Research Skills for Policy and Development provides a critique of various methods and situates these approaches within r̀eal life' organisational settings, enabling those working in or studying development to locate, evaluate and use relevant information quickly but rigorously.

"Individual chapters explain a variety of approaches to representation, bringing to bear concepts from semiotic, discursive, psychoanalytic, anthropological, sociological, feminist, art-historical and Foucauldian models of representation. They explore representation as a signifying practice in a rich diversity of social contexts and institutional sites: the use of photography in the construction of national identity and culture; the poetics and politics of exhibiting other cultures in ethnographic museums; fantasies of 'the racialized Other' in popular media, film and image; the construction of masculine identities in discourses of consumer culture and advertising; the gendering of narratives in television soap operas." "The book discusses contested and critical questions of meaning, truth, knowledge and power in representation, and the relations between representation, pleasure and fantasy. Combining illustrative examples with activities and selected readings, accessible but not simplified, it offers a unique resource for teachers and students in cultural studies and related fields as an introduction to this complex and central theme."--BOOK JACKET+-+07890461257672ocn320982040file20070.47Earle, SarahTheory and research in promoting public healthWhat, exactly, is promoting public health activity? How should we promote public health? Whose values are most important? Which theories can help inform health promoting practice? Theory and Research in Promoting Public Health is an important text that addresses these questions, exploring the key concepts, debates and issues involved in multi-disciplinary public health. The book considers the complex and diverse nature of public health and helps readers critically appraise the theories, research and policies that inform multidisciplinary public health practice.
