Sustainable tourism III by F. D Pineda( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The archetypal tourist is at present slowly evolving towards a cultural model in which human labour, on one hand, and nature and landscape, on the other, constitute the most important attractions with regard to his trip and stay in a given place. Classical mass tourism remains as the most relevant source of income in most tourist destinations and for the powerful industry associated with transport and with the destination itself, but it is interesting to observe that, once the mere need for holidays has been satisfied, many people set themselves objectives typical of more cultured societies.

Brownfield sites : assessment, rehabilitation, and development by International Conference on Brownfield Sites( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An interdisciplinary approach is essential for the successful regeneration of brownfield sites. Such development embraces a wide range of issues including cleanup and economic redevelopment, legislation and the prominent roles of ownership and investment, the latter points being complicated by varying international approaches. Strong community participation is also involved. The ecological advantages may be obvious to all, but the benefits of reintegration of land into the economic cycle of the community need to be promoted strongly to take effect, as do the economic and social dimensions for the reinvigoration of cities. This book features papers presented at Brownfields 2002, the First International Conference on Assessment, Rehabilitation and Development of Brownfield Sites. Over 50 contributions on a broad range of engineering, science and land issues relating to brownfields are included. These are divided under the following headings: case studies; community and public involvement; environmental assessment; development issues; financial and insurance aspects; risk management; multimedia modelling and assessment; lessons from the field; and cleanup methodologies
Data mining X : data mining, protection, detection and other security technologies by International Conference on Data Mining( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the end of the Cold War, the threat of large-scale wars has been substituted by new threats: terrorism, organised crime, trafficking, smuggling, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. To react to them, a security strategy is necessary, but in order to be effective it requires several instruments, including technological tools. Consequently, research and development in the field of security is proving to be an ever-expanding field all over the world. Data mining is seen more and more not only as a key technology in business, engineering and science but as one of the key features in
The art of resisting extreme natural forces by C. A Brebbia( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Computational methods in multiphase flow IV by A. A Mammoli( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Multiphase flow remains one of the unsolved problems in fluid mechanics. There are many factors which make it difficult to deal with such flows. They are very diverse in nature, and as a consequence the laws governing them are similarly varied. This volume contains papers presented at the fourth International Conference on Computational Methods in Multiphase Flow. Complementing the interesting mathematical and numerical problems that multiphase flows pose is an equally interesting array of real-life problems which are characterized by multiphase flow: groundwater transport, river and sea-bed se
