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. And it warns her that if she doesn't solve a mystery her best friend will die! The radio gives out riddles and puzzles to help her solve the mystery. Follow the three friends as they race against time to crack the clues and save DeBrina.
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.

Principles of Statistical Radiophysics is a four-volume series that introduces the newcomer to the theory of random functions. It aims at providing the background necessary to understand papers and monographs on the subject and to carry out independent research in the fields where fluctuations are of importance, e.g. radiophysics, optics, astronomy, and acoustics. Volume 3,Elements of Random Fields, gives the basic mathematical definitions, general properties and specific forms of random fields, the generalization from correlation theory to random fields. It deals with stochastic partial differential equations, wave scattering at a chaotic screen, single scattering in random media and thermal fluctuations and radiation of electromagnetic fields.
