Coastline Changes of the Baltic Sea from South to East: Past and Future Projection

Coastline Changes of the Baltic Sea from South to East: Past and Future Projection By Jan Harff, Kazimierz Furmańczyk, Hans von Storch
English | PDF | 2017 | 386 Pages | ISBN : 3319498924 | 18.5 MB

This book discusses sea-level and coastline changes. These topics are becoming increasingly important for populations living along the edge of the world’s oceans and seas, especially in areas where eustatic sea-level rise is superimposed on isostatic subsidence and storm-induced coastal erosion. This is the case at the southern and eastern Baltic Sea coast: in the south, glacio-isostatic subsidence enhances the effect of climate-induced sea-level rise and strong storm effects are causing a continuous retreat of the coast.

Handbook of Bioenergy Economics and Policy: Volume II: Modeling Land Use and Greenhouse Gas Implications By Madhu Khanna, David Zilberman
English | PDF | 2017 | 442 Pages | ISBN : 1493969048 | 12 MB

In its second volume, this book aims to link the academic research with development in the real world and provide a historical and institutional background that can enrich more formal research. The first section will include an assessment of the evolution and the state of the nascent second-generation biofuel as well as a perspective on the evolution of corn ethanol and sugarcane ethanol in Brazil. It will also include a historical and institutional background on the biofuel industry in Brazil that has global lessons, and later, provide a technical overview of major analytical tools used to assess the economic, land use and greenhouse gas implications of biofuel policies at a regional and global level.
