Carbon dioxide is the most important greenhouse gas after water vapor in the atmosphere of the earth. More than 98% of the carbon of the atmosphere-ocean system is stored in the oceans as dissolved inorganic carbon. The key for understanding critical processes of the marine carbon cycle is a sound knowledge of the seawater carbonate chemistry, including equilibrium and nonequilibrium properties as well as stable isotope fractionation. Presenting the first coherent text describing equilibrium and nonequilibrium properties and stable isotope fractionation among the elements of the carbonate system. This volume presents an overview and a synthesis of these subjects which should be useful for graduate students and researchers in various fields such as biogeochemistry, chemical oceanography, paleoceanography, marine biology, marine chemistry, marine geology, and others. The volume includes an introduction to the equilibrium properties of the carbonate system in which basic concepts such as equilibrium constants, alkalinity, pH scales, and buffering are discussed. It also deals with the nonequilibrium properties of the seawater carbonate chemistry. Whereas principle of chemical kinetics are recapitulated, reaction rates and relaxation times of the carbonate system are considered in details. The book also provides a general introduction to stable isotope fractionation and describes the partitioning of carbon, oxygen, and boron isotopes between the species of the carbonate system. The appendix contains formulas for the equilibrium constants of the carbonate system, mathematical expressions to calculate carbonate system parameters, answers to exercises and more.

Die Klimatologie ist in den letzten Jahren zu einer globalen „Systemwissenschaft“ des Klimasystems bzw. des Erdsystems als Ganzes geworden und stellt heute eine hoch interdisziplinäre und extrem problemgetriebene „Mega-Science“ dar. Dieses neue Lehrbuch greift diese Entwicklung auf. Es besteht aus drei gleichmäßig gewichteten Kernbereichen – Teil I: Basiswissen Klimatologie, Teil II: Klimawandel / Global Change, Teil III: Klima und Politik / Gesellschaft – und zielt auf die Vermittlung der Zusammenhänge von Klimafaktoren – Klimawandel – Gesellschaft – Politik ab. Anders als bisherige Lehrbücher der Klimatologie geht es sehr ausführlich auf das hochaktuelle Themenfeld „Global Change“ ein und verdeutlicht die gesellschaftliche Relevanz der Klimaforschung. In dem es einen klaren Zusammenhang zwischen den „natürlichen“ Grundlagen – klassische Klimatologie, Global Change – und den Auswirkungen auf die Gesellschaften der Erde herstellt, geht es über die eigentliche Kernklientel eines Lehrbuchs für Klimatologen/Meteorologen hinaus und spricht einen sehr breiten Leserkreis an. Insofern ist das Buch auf dem deutschen Markt ein Novum.

One of Springer’s Major Reference Works, this book gives the reader a truly global perspective. It is the first major reference work in its field. Paleoclimate topics covered in the encyclopedia give the reader the capability to place the observations of recent global warming in the context of longer-term natural climate fluctuations. Significant elements of the encyclopedia include recent developments in paleoclimate modeling, paleo-ocean circulation, as well as the influence of geological processes and biological feedbacks on global climate change. The encyclopedia gives the reader an entry point into the literature on these and many other groundbreaking topics.

Since 1980 a considerable amount of scientific research dealing with geochemical processes in marine sediments has been carried out. This textbook summarizes the state-of-the-art in this field of research providing a complete representation of the subject and including the most recent findings. The topics covered include the examination of sedimentological and physical properties of the sedimentary solid phase. A new chapter describes properties, occurrence and formation of gas hydrates in marine sediments. The textbook ends with a chapter on model conceptions and computer models to quantify processes of early diagenesis.

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 183. For carbon sequestration the issues of monitoring, risk assessment, and verification of carbon content and storage efficacy are perhaps the most uncertain. Yet these issues are also the most critical challenges facing the broader context of carbon sequestration as a means for addressing climate change. In response to these challenges, Carbon Sequestration and Its Role in the Global Carbon Cycle presents current perspectives and research that combine five major areas: The global carbon cycle and verification and assessment of global carbon sources and sinks Potential capacity and temporal/spatial scales of terrestrial, oceanic, and geologic carbon storage Assessing risks and benefits associated with terrestrial, oceanic, and geologic carbon storage Predicting, monitoring, and verifying effectiveness of different forms of carbon storage Suggested new CO2 sequestration research and management paradigms for the future. The volume is based on a Chapman Conference and will appeal to the rapidly growing group of scientists and engineers examining methods for deliberate carbon sequestration through storage in plants, soils, the oceans, and geological repositories.

Modelling of marine ecosystems is a rapidly developing branch of interdisciplinary oceanographic research. Introduction to the Modelling of Marine Ecosystems is the first consistent and comprehensive introduction to the development of models of marine ecosystems. It begins with simple first steps of modelling and develops more and more complex models. This step-by-step approach to increasing the complexity of the models is intended to allow students of biological oceanography and interested scientists with only limited experience in mathematical modelling to explore the theoretical framework and familiarize oneself with the methods. The book describes how biological model components can be integrated into three dimensional circulation models and how such models can be used for 'numerical experiments'. The book illustrates the mathematical aspects of modelling and gives application examples. The tutorial aspect of the book is supported by a set of MATLAB programs, which are provided on an accompanying CD-Rom and which can be used to reproduce many of the results presented in the book.

Die Frage nach den Folgen möglicher Klimaänderungen im deutschen Küstenraum ist einer der Schwerpunkte der Klimafolgenforschung. Die Untersuchung besonders empfindlicher Räume steht dabei im Vordergrund, weil sich hier vielfältige Nutzungsansprüche begegnen, die einer vorausschauenden Analyse und Planung bedürfen. Am Beispiel der touristisch intensiv genutzten Nordseeinsel Sylt wurde diese Problematik in einem mehrjährigen Forschungsprojekt untersucht und aus natur- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Aspekten beleuchtet. Die wichtigsten Ergebnisse der interdisziplinären "Fallstudie Sylt" sind in diesem Buch zusammengestellt. Die vielfältigen Analysen stellen die Grundlage für die Ableitung von Forschungs- sowie Handlungsempfehlungen im Sinne eines integrierten Küstenmanagements dar. Die beigefügte CD enthält eine Reihe von Karten, auf denen u. a. die Entwicklung der Insel in den letzten 800 Jahren sowie die mögliche Entwicklung bis zum Jahr 2050 aufgezeigt wird.
