4,000 miles of unpredictable ocean. 500 Mars bars. 124 days of physical exertion. 3 Guinness World Records set. 1 incredible journey. On 1 April 2009, twenty-three-year-old Sarah Outen embarked on an ambitious solo voyage across the Indian Ocean in her rowing boat, Dippers.

Powered by the grief of the sudden loss of her father and the determination to live life to the full, Sarah and her tiny boat successfully negotiated wild ocean storms, unexpected encounters with whales and the continuous threat of being capsized by passing container ships. Along the way she broke two oars and lost 20 kg of bodyweight before arriving in Mauritius.

She became the first woman and the youngest person to row solo across the Indian Ocean. Life-affirming, funny and poignant, Sarah's salty tale of courage and endurance will inspire the taste of adventure in everyone.

During the past 10 years following the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, invaluable lessons have been learned and great changes have been observed. Immediately after the disaster, the second World Conference on Disaster Reduction was held in Kobe, Japan, and formulated the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA: 2005-2015). HFA provided a platform and framework for changes and innovations, many of which were part of the recovery programs in the different countries affected by the 2004 disaster. This book is a modest attempt to review the lessons learned through the recovery process in the affected region.

The book has 31 chapters, drawing lessons from four countries: India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. There are five sections: Overview (10 chapters), Indonesia (8 chapters), India (6 chapters), Sri Lanka (5 chapters), and Thailand (2 chapters).

The primary target groups for this book are students and researchers in the fields of disaster risk reduction, environment, and development. The book provides them with a good idea of the current research trends and lessons over the past decade of recovery initiatives. Another target group comprises practitioners and policy makers, who will be able to apply the knowledge collected here to establishing policy and making decisions.

About the Book Hinduism, the eternal religion (Sanatana Dharma), is based on the Vedas. It stands on a tripod called Prasthanatraya, the three canonical texts. The first leg of the tripod is the Upanishads or revealed Truth. The second is the Bhagavad Gita or the practical truth. And the third is the Brahma Sutras or the reasoned truth. The necessity for a basic knowledge about the essentials of the Sanatna Dharma needs hardly any emphasis in the present ambience of ill-informed religious controversies. An attempt is therefore being made to bring to the attention of the vast majority of those who are interested in these matters the sublime thoughts contained in the Prasthana Traya. Out of these three texts, books on the Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads were already published and available in amazon.com. The present work covers some of the important and popular topics of Hinduism in the form of a compendium of essays on Bhakti, Scriptures, Yoga, Philosophy and Religion etc. The goal of all religions is the complete annihilation of sorrows, miseries and sufferings. Being threatened by miseries all the time, a question arises 'Is there any way out from this misery?' The answer lies in the teachings of Prasthana Traya. Hence if this attempt attracts the notice of the seekers and kindles in them an enthusiasm to go back to the original works my efforts would have achieved their objective.


Ocean Atmosphere Interaction And Climate Modeling

RRP $105.95

This 1995 text is addressed to advanced students in oceanography, meteorology and environmental sciences, as well as to professional researchers in these fields. It aims to acquaint them with advances in experimental and theoretical investigations of ocean-atmosphere interactions, a rapidly developing field in earth sciences. Particular attention is paid to the scope and perspectives for satellite measurements and mathematical modeling. Approaches to the construction of coupled ocean-atmosphere models (from the simplest one-dimensional to the most comprehensive three-dimensional ones) for the solution of key problems in climate theory are discussed in detail. Field measurements and the results of numerical climate simulations are presented, to help understand the variability arising from various natural and anthropogenic factors.
