The benthic boundary layer : [proceedings] by I. N McCave( Book )

8 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Conference on the Benthic Boundary Layer was held under the auspices of the NATO Science Committee as part of its continuing effort to promote the useful progress of science through international cooperation. Science Committee Conferences are deliberately designed to focus attention on unsolved problems, with carefully selected participants invited to provide complementary expertise from a variety of relevant disciplines. Through inten sive discussion in small groups they seek to reach a consensus on assessments and recommendations for future research emphasis, which it is hoped will be of value to the larger scientific community. The subjects treated over the past few years have been as varied as science itself-e.g., computer software engineering, chemical catalysis, and materials and energy research. The present effort evolved from informal discussions between marine geolo gists, chemists, and biologists which underlined the desirability of improved communication among those concerned with the benthic layer. In both scien tific and technological terms this is an exciting frontier, rich in promise but poorly understood at present. It is particularly striking to realize that there are at least as many definitions of the benthic layer as there are disciplines involved, and it seemed clear that there was much to be gained by a detailed exchange of views on research capabilities, trends, and priorities. The results of the meeting appear to have confirmed the hopes of the sponsors

14 editions published between 1976 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thermal Energy Storage is a collection of papers that tackles various areas of concerns in thermal energy storage. The materials in the text are primarily concerned with addressing issues regarding conservation, efficiency, and applicability of thermal energy storage. The coverage of the title includes the storage of high and low temperature thermal energy; heat transfer and thermal energy transport; and the impact of thermal energy storage on energy structures. The book will be of great interest to scientists, engineers, and technicians involved in the energy industry

Decision making and age: NATO Advanced Study Institute, University of Thessaloniki, August 14-19 (1967) by A. T Welford( Book )

9 editions published between 1969 and 1980 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawn from a 1967 conference on gerontology, these 11 papers consider the nature of age changes (for better or worse) in high grade intellectual work and decision making of the kind found in industrial management and comparable walks of life. The first paper draws implications for higher intellectual activities from existing knowledge of age changes in more elementary functions. The next examines how the thought processes and decision strategies of educated men change with age. The next three discuss the interaction of work, health, education, and working conditions with age changes in performance. Still another describes the selection and training of middle aged adults for new work. The remainder deal with relationships among logical structure, language, and thinking, the effects of caution on older adults' perceptual discrimination performance, age differences in ways of resolving interpersonal conflicts, and other topics germane to higher congitive functioning. Tables, figures, and bibliographies are included. (Ly)
Structure and evolution of the galaxy. Proceedings of the NATO advanced study institute held in Athens, September 8-19, 1969 by L. N Mavridis( Book )

4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present volume contains papers presented during the Advanced Study Institute on the 'Structure and Evolution of the Galaxy' held under the auspices of the Science Committee, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in Lagonissi near Athens, Greece between 8-19 September 1969. Seventeen astronomers from eight countries acted as lecturers in the Institute, which was attended by sixty-three students from twelve countries. All the lectures given in the Institute were included in the volume with the exception of two lectures given by Professor P. van de Kamp on 'Stellar Parallaxes' and 'Objects of Very Low Mass', the manuscripts of which were not submitted in time in order to be considered for publication. It is obviously impossible in a two-weeks course to cover the vast field of the Struc ture and Evolution of the Galaxy in all its aspects. Effort has been made, however, to give the students a general outline of the field. In addition to the lectures ample time was spent in discussions and personal contacts. In order to simplify the publica tion it was felt reasonable, however, not to include the discussions in the present volume
Technology of efficient energy utilization : the report of a NATO Science Committee Conference held at Les Arcs, France, 8th-12th October 1973 by Eugene G Kovach( Book )

Technology of Efficient Energy Utilization is a report of a NATO Science Committee conference held in Les Arcs, France on October 8-12, 1973. The focus of said conference is on energy conservation, the end-uses of energy, and its determining factors in the long run. The report is composed of two parts. Part I includes the working reports from different groups every chapter. The reports cover industrial, residential, and commercial heat; light; motion; electronic and electrolytic processes; and residential, commercial, industrial, urban systems.

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long ago~ the welfare of a sooiety used to depend heavily on the skill and dedioation of its oraftsmen - the miller~ the blaok smith~ the oobbler and the tailor. These oraftsmen aoquired their skill by a long and poorly paid apprentioeship to some master of their oraft. They learned by imitation and experienoe~ and by tri al and error. They did not read books or study soienoe~ they knew nothing of the theory of their subjeot~ the geometry of their ru dimentary drawings~ nor the mathematios underlying their primitive oaloulations. They oould not explain how or why they used their methods; yet they worked effeotively by themselves or in small teams to oomplete their tasks at a predioted oost~ to a fairly well predioted timesoale~ and usually to the satisfaotion of their olients. The programmer of today shares many of these attributes of a oraftsman. He learns his oraft by apprentioeship in an existing team of programmers - but his apprentiaeship is highZy paid and usually very short. He develops his skill by trial; but mostly by error. He does not study theory~ or even read books on Computer Soience. He knows nothing of the logical and mathematical founda tions of his profession; and he hates to explain or justifY~ or even to dooument what he has done
