A Hands-On Introduction to Using Python in the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences By Johnny Wei-Bing Lin
Paperback: $20.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Python is a modern computer language whose use in the atmospheric and oceanic sciences (AOS) is growing by leaps and bounds. Yet, while many excellent resources exist for learning Python, there have... More > not been any resources specifically written for the AOS user. This book is a hands-on introduction to Python written for AOS researchers, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates who are new to Python (seasoned Python users will find the book of limited use). It focuses not on computer science but on how Python can help AOS users do AOS work. It is not a reference manual but a mini-course. We take a gentle approach to learning Python but do not aim to teach programming; readers should already know the basics of programming in another language. A color PDF version (with active hyperlinks) of this book is also available from the Lulu Marketplace. Note: Enthought Python Distribution (EPD) users should see the book's website (http://www.johnny-lin.com/pyintro) for an errata workaround specific to EPD.< Less

Introduction to Psychology and Behaviour Science By Vidya Bhagat
Paperback: $10.40
Prints in 3-5 business days
In the field of psychology there are many books which are of interest to the students of psychology. However, I had felt a need for a book which offers a comprehensive account of topics related to... More > the introduction to psychology and behavioural science to the best possible extent which emphasises on easy and understandable language for undergraduate students. Working in Malaysia and being a part of the health and medical education system here, I was inspired by the support and encouragement prevailing in the atmosphere which was conducive for expressing my ideas in simple form of this book for the benefits of our students. I considered it apt to use my knowledge to meet this dire need which led to the penning of this book. It will hopefully serve as a very useful aid to students in their curriculum. The students will benefit from the information covered in this book which articulates thoughts and ideas related to the subject matter. This effort is aimed at helping the students gain knowledge effectively.< Less
Aerosol Science and Technology: History and Reviews By David S. Ensor, Editor
Hardcover: $30.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Aerosol Science and Technology: History and Reviews captures an exciting slice of history in the evolution of aerosol science. It presents in-depth biographies of four leading international aerosol... More > researchers and highlights pivotal research institutions in New York, Minnesota, and Austria. One collection of chapters reflects on the legacy of the Pasadena smog experiment, while another presents a fascinating overview of military applications and nuclear aerosols. Finally, prominent researchers offer detailed reviews of aerosol measurement, processes, experiments, and technology that changed the face of aerosol science. This volume is the third in a series and is supported by the American Association for Aerosol Research (AAAR) History Working Group, whose goal is to produce archival books from its symposiums on the history of aerosol science to ensure a lasting record. It is based on papers presented at the Third Aerosol History Symposium on September 8 and 9, 2006, in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.< Less
Science Errors: How Deterioration of Science Left Wreckage and Ruin By Gary Novak
eBook (ePub): $5.49
Physics errors began in 1686 with an incorrect equation for defining kinetic energy. Without the error there is no significant energy in hydrogen fusion. Laser tests failed to find energy in... More > fusion, and atom smashers keep getting larger trying to produce such energy without success. There is no such thing as greenhouse gases, because there is no such thing as trapping heat in the atmosphere. Absorbed radiation is re-emitted in femto seconds. A claimed measurement of gravity waves was totally contrived. One tenth of an atto meter in a 4 kilometer path was supposedly measured. Science cannot measure at that level. It's 10,000 times smaller than a proton. A temperature change of something like 18 trillionths of a degree centigrade would wipe out the measurement.< Less
Rocketry: Investigate the Science and Technology of Rockets and Ballistics with 25 Projects By Carla Mooney
eBook (PDF): $12.95
Do you ever wonder how rockets soar into space? Rocketry: Investigate the Science and Technology of Rockets and Ballistics introduces students to the fascinating world of rocketry and ballistics.... More > Readers discover the history of rocket development, from the earliest fire arrows in China to modern-day space shuttles. They learn how rockets are launched, move through the atmosphere, and return to Earth safely. Exploring the science behind rocket flight, kids see how the forces of thrust, gravity, lift, and drag interact to determine a rocket’s path. Entertaining illustrations and fascinating sidebars illuminate the topic, while Words to Know, highlighted and defined within the text, reinforce new vocabulary. Projects include building a pneumatic blast rocket and launcher, determining the role of fins in rocket stability, testing a rocket recovery system, and designing a rocket model of the future. Additional materials include a glossary and a list of Internet resources.< Less

A Science Discovery Nostradamus Predicted In Mono Colour The Virgin Spacecraft Accident Explained version By Peet (PSJ) Schutte
Paperback: $131.65
Prints in 3-5 business days
In this option of A Science Discovery Nostradamus Predicted: Virgin’s Space Craft 2 Option I devote chapter 6 to explain the sound barrier and how this law helped the accident to take place.... More > The accident wasn’t due to pilot error or human negligence but because of the breaking of natural laws. I elaborate in the most detail ever presented of how the four cosmic laws that rule all movement within the boundaries of the Earth’s atmosphere apply. It’s better known as the Sound Barrier. The accident of Space Craft 2 was not the result of pilot error or of equipment mismanagement but it was the result of breaking 4 cosmic laws that science is unaware of. Without knowing these laws more fatal accident is waiting to happen. View this effort as urgent to prevent further loss of life. By not complying with certain specific and yet unknown cosmic laws more preventable but disastrous fatalities will follow in the development of Virgin Air’s Space Ship 2 program.< Less
A Question Of Tides (A Tidal Enigma) By D J Haskell
Paperback: $7.22
Prints in 3-5 business days
Whilst it could be said that most educated folk understand the general science that landed men on the Moon in the latter part of the 20th Century it is sad that the very same people fail to... More > understand the mechanics behind the tides - some might opine it is a terrible indictment of the educational system that this ignorance persists into the 21st Century. If you are reading these words then there is the high probability that you are also in the dark and will fail to explain the ocean tides. But do not despair as this book will guide you toward the light and understanding. The Moon does not directly pull the sea upwards to cause a tidal bulge any more than it does by pulling you up, so you feel a lot lighter. There are other forces at work that cause ocean tides and to a lesser degree, land and atmospheric tides.< Less
