The Indian Ocean represents a part of the global Ocean that has been less studied by modern oceanography than the Atlantic and Pacific parts. This is remarkable, since the Indian Ocean was subject to much historic exploration through navigators from Asia, India, the Middle East and lastly from Europe.
This unique, comprehensive reference set on the Indian Ocean, covers all oceanographical aspects with its physics, chemistry, biology and geology in 21 peer-reviewed expert-written chapters.
Besides the well-ground basis on the Ocean's characteristics and a wealth of data, some unique features presented are the monsoon - the biennial reversal of winds and the resultant surface circulation; the tropical and sub-tropical jet streams, namely the Somali current, the Agulhas current and the Leevwin current; the oxygen-poor intermediate waters in its northern part which significantly contribute several green house gases to the atmosphere, for example, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane and dimethyl sulphide; its exhaustive coral reefs and mangrove vegetation; and the polymetallic nodules at its depths and its other mineral resources. Moreover, an analysis is provided of the anthropogenic contributions and their impacts on the health of the Indian Ocean; and that of estuary environments of important rivers of the 15 littoral countries.
Intended for research scientists, professionals and students working in physical, chemical and geological oceanography.
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.
A comprehensive work on the Indian Ocean that deals with its physics, chemistry, biology and geology in two volumes. The 21 chapters have been contributed by well-experienced and competent specialists in their respective fields.
The recent rising volumes and the variety in trends and patterns of cross-national population movements impact the social, economic and political fabrics of the receiving and sending countries. This book focuses on Indians, also known as Asian Indians or East Indians, a group that is becoming noticeable outside of India because of its increasing numerical presence and intra-group diversity. The destinations considered in this study are the four classical immigration countries, comprising Australia, Canada, United Kingdom and the United States of America, and an emerging destination nation, Germany. While there has been a significant increase in the body of work examining socioeconomic outcomes of immigrants in a comparative framework, there is no research comparing the socioeconomic well-being of Indian immigrants across the major destinations of the developed world. This book aims to fill that gap in the literature.
We first started writing our story for those who have not yet arrived on the scene, unborn generations who are destined to make their appearance in our family and in the family of man. Our aim was to narrow the gap for those who were too little or not even in this world, to have known or appreciated Grandpa Chuck. Then we thought about a wider audience - our close friends and beyond. Grandpa's legacy to us all is about faith, love, courage and fortitude in accepting the vicissitudes of life and mysteries of death. Perhaps our readers, especially children and youth who are experiencing the sudden or gradual loss of someone they cherish dearly, will discover between these pages a gentle ray of hope. What could be brighter or more comforting than to imagine our loved ones that have passed from us, immersed in an ocean of light?
