Polar Seas Oceanography describes a new tool called the Generic Model System for simulations and assessment of potential radioactive spreading in the Arctic regions, through rivers, estuaries, regional seas and the Arctic and Atlantic basin. It considers the present and future potential for spreading of radionuclear pollution from sources, such as from the major Russian processing plants through Siberian rivers as well as from European sources such as the UK Sellafield plant. The book provides support for decision making involving risk prevention, forecasting and readiness for probable crises, alerting and detection, relief and mitigation and damage assessment. It will be useful to managers, scientists and PhD students in the area of environmental nuclear safety. The book combines the expertise of professionals from the radionuclear and climate-change sciences.
Davina Gonzales doesn't think she's anything special, even though her uncle is a world famous detective. She and her friends Fabiola and DeBrina are like most seventh-grade girls in rural California. But Davina's life takes a strange twist when she gets an old radio for her twelfth birthday. It runs without electricity or batteries. It always plays her favorite songs.

What's the worst day of the year? You guessed it. Stella's birthday.
This book describes the design of Software Radio (SWR). Rather than providing an overview of digital signal processing and communications, this book focuses on topics which are crucial in the design and development of a SWR, explaining them in a very simple, yet precise manner, giving simulation results that confirm the effectiveness of the proposed design. Readers will gain in-depth knowledge of key issues so they can actually implement a SWR.
