This Festschrift containing 16 invited essays and papers is a tribute to the prestigious Irish hydrologist James Dooge at the party of his seventieth birthday. His former scholars, colleagues and acquaintances in fourteen international locations, have supplied a diverse choice on his favorite issues: circulation in open channels and unsaturated soil, and in addition from his significant curiosity of modern years, huge scale hydrology and worldwide change.

The ebook has 3 sections. the 1st part on hydrological approaches includes six papers. the second one part on huge scale hydrology has 4 papers. Six ancient, reflective and philosophical essays at the previous and way forward for the hydrological sciences shape the 3rd component to the booklet

The Analytics of Uncertainty and Information

There was explosive development within the fiscal idea of uncertainty and data long ago few many years. This topic is now taught not just in departments of economics but additionally in specialist faculties and courses orientated towards enterprise, executive and management, and public coverage. This booklet makes an attempt to unify the subject material in an easy, available demeanour.

Advances in Nutritional Research: Volume 5

Quantity five of Advances in dietary study displays a robust present curiosity within the dating among meals and affliction. The effect of affliction on dietary prestige is defined for hepatic encephalopathy and melanoma and for numerous diseases of hospitalized young children. The effect of meals on disorder is illustrated utilizing the examples of retinol in tumorigenesis, supplements A and E in inflammatory lung illness, fatty acids in atherogenesis and weight problems, and folate in megaloblastic anemia.

Uncommon Sense

"I imagine that we'll now not be very profitable in discouraging different energy from this path [of a nuclear army software] until we express, by means of our personal instance and conviction, that we regard nuclear armament as a transitory, risky, and degrading part of the world’s history…"These phrases might have been acknowledged this present day; that they have been acknowledged greater than 20 years in the past, via one of many "fathers" of the atom bomb, supplies them even larger impression.

T h e p a r a m e t e r k may be found using field measurements of z B( r ) or simple models of saturated flow to drains. A more detailed treatment requires a two-dimensional theory of saturated/unsaturated flow. 2.

PHILIP O'KANE Abstract Dried peat is used as a fuel in a number of countries. Drawing on concepts in hydrology and soil physics we present a physically based theory of water movement in unsaturated peat. We apply the theory to the simulation of the drying of a layer of milled peat during a typical production period of four days. The control variables are: (1) the depth to the drained water table, (2) the depth of the milled layer, and (3) the timing and frequency of harrowing.
