Diffuse Radio Foregrounds

by Matías Vidal Navarro

This extensive thesis work covers several topics, including intensity and polarization, focusing on a new polarization bias reduction method. Vidal studied data from the WMAP satellite, which is low signal-to-noise and as such has to be corrected for polarization bias. He presents a new method for correcting the data, based on knowledge of the underlying angle of polarization. Using this novel method, he sets upper limits for the polarization fraction of regions known to emit significant amounts of spinning dust emissions. He also studies the large-scale loops and filaments that dominate the synchrotron sky. The dominant features are investigated, including identification of several new features. For the North Polar Spur, a model of an expanding shell in the vicinity of the Sun is tested, which appears to fit the data. Implications for CMB polarization surveys are also discussed. In addition, Vidal presents interferometric observations of the dark cloud LDN 1780 at 31 GHz and shows that the spinning dust hypothesis can explain the radio properties observed.

Nanostructured Photocatalysts

by Hexing Li Hiromi Yamashita

While books on semiconductor TiO2 photocatalysis are legion, nanostructured controlled photocatalysts are attractive beyond standard semiconductors, and this book is devoted to the many novel uses of advanced TiO2 and MOF-based photocatalysts. Details on synthesis, characterization, and reaction applications of nanostructured photocatalysts are summarized. Other new materials discussed in this book are Bi- W- oxides, metal complexes, and unique porous materials. This book contains methods of preparation and characterization of unique nanostructured photocatalysts, and details about their catalytic action. Contributors to this volume are leading Asian researchers in Photocatalysis. It will appeal to researchers wishing to know how to design new types of photocatalysts with controlled nanostructures.

Understanding Earth Observation

by Domenico Solimini

This volume addresses the physical foundation of remote sensing. The basic grounds are presented in close association with the kinds of environmental targets to monitor and with the observing techniques. The book aims at plugging the quite large gap between the thorough and quantitative description of electromagnetic waves interacting with the Earth's environment and the user applications of Earth observation. It is intended for scientifically literate students and professionals who plan to gain a first understanding of remote sensing data and of their information content.

The Physiology of Microalgae

by John A. Raven John Beardall Michael A. Borowitzka

This book covers the state-of-the-art of microalgae physiology and biochemistry (and the several -omics). It serves as a key reference work for those working with microalgae, whether in the lab, the field, or for commercial applications. It is aimed at new entrants into the field (i. e. PhD students) as well as experienced practitioners. It has been over 40 years since the publication of a book on algal physiology. Apart from reviews and chapters no other comprehensive book on this topic has been published. Research on microalgae has expanded enormously since then, as has the commercial exploitation of microalgae. This volume thoroughly deals with the most critical physiological and biochemical processes governing algal growth and production.

Optical Coherence Tomography

by Robert C. Sergott Aniz Girach

This richly illustrated, comprehensive guide will enable the reader to identify anatomy and ophthalmic disease as illustrated on optical coherence tomography (OCT). It is the most up-to-date atlas of OCT images, many of which have been obtained with the newer OCT technologies that offer excellent image quality and definition at a microscopic level. All of the major disease areas in ophthalmology are covered, including diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, uveitis, glaucoma, retinal vascular disease, and genetic abnormalities, and further hot topics are also considered. The chapters are written by leading international ophthalmologists from famous academic centers, and the numerous high-quality OCT images ensure that the reader will easily be able to follow the key issues. This book, with its clinical emphasis, will have wide appeal for residents, fellows, and experienced practitioners in ophthalmology, as well as optometrists and medical students and graduates.

Cañadell's Pediatric Bone Sarcomas

by Mikel San-Julian

The second edition of this well-received book reflects the state of the art in surgery for malignant bone tumors in children, with a particular focus on epiphysiolysis before excision. With a thorough update, new chapters, a clear presentation of tips and tricks to address complications, as well as supplementary online videos and tutorials, this book addresses the challenges of limb preservation that are posed to the surgeon in this new era of cancer treatment characterized by higher survival rates and longer survival times. The authors are experienced practitioners of Ca#65533;adell's technique, but the book also explores, thanks to the focused contributions of experts from other fields of medicine, a range of topics from the molecular biology and histological aspects of bone tumors, to the use of imaging techniques and surgical options for epiphyseal preservation. Abundant illustrations and accounts of clinical results make this book an indispensable guide for orthopedic surgeons and pediatric oncologists and give the book an interdisciplinary appeal to practitioners in more general orthopedics, oncology, pediatrics and surgery.


by Bert Vis Colin Burgess

This book focuses on the Interkosmos program, which was formed in 1967, marking a fundamentally new era of cooperation by socialist countries, led by the Soviet Union, in the study and exploration of space. The chapters shed light on the space program that was at that time a prime outlet for the Soviet Union's aims at becoming a world power. Interkosmos was a highly publicized Russian space program that rapidly became a significant propaganda tool for the Soviet Union in the waning years of communism. Billed as an international "research-cosmonaut" imperative, it was also a high-profile means of displaying solidarity with the nine participating Eastern bloc countries. Those countries contributed pilots who were trained in Moscow for week-long "guest" missions on orbiting Salyut stations. They did a little subsidiary science and were permitted only the most basic mechanical maneuvers. In this enthralling new book, and following extensive international research, the authors fully explore the background, accomplishments and political legacy of the Interkosmos program. Through personal and often highly revealing interviews with many of the participants they relate the very human story behind this extraordinary but controversial space venture. .

OCT in Central Nervous System Diseases

by Piero Barboni Andrzej Grzybowski

This book reviews recent important advances in the use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in order to analyze neurodegeneration within the retina through the quantification of axonal loss. Detailed information is provided on the role of OCT as a promising tool for the evaluation of disease progression in numerous neurodegenerative disorders and as a biological marker of neuroaxonal injury. The disorders considered include multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, intracranial hypertension, Friedreich's ataxia, schizophrenia, hereditary optic neuropathies, glaucoma, and amblyopia. Individual chapters are also devoted to OCT technique, new OCT technology in neuro-ophthalmology, OCT and pharmacological treatment, and the use of OCT in animal models. By documenting the ability of OCT to provide key information on CNS diseases, this book illustrates convincingly that the eye is indeed the "window to the brain".
