Rivers are major geomorphological brokers, they exhibit an awesome range of shape and behavior and move water and sediment from the land floor to the oceans. This publication examines how river platforms reply to environmental switch and why this figuring out is required for profitable river administration. hugely dynamic in nature, river channels alter and evolve over timescales that diversity from hours to tens of millions of years or extra, and are present in quite a lot of environments.
This publication presents a finished review of modern advancements in river channel administration, sincerely illustrating why an figuring out of fluvial geomorphology is essential in channel protection, environmentally delicate layout and the recovery of degraded river channels.
- movement and sediment regimes: circulate new release; stream regimes; sediment resources, move and yield
- channel strategies: circulation features; methods of abrasion and sediment shipping; interactions among stream and the channel boundary; deposition
- channel shape and behavior: controls on channel shape; channel alterations; floodplain improvement; shape and behavior of alluvial and bedrock channels
- reaction to alter: how channels have replied to previous environmental switch; affects of human task; reconstructing prior changes
- river administration: the fluvial hydrosystem; environmental degradation; environmentally delicate engineering options; river recovery; the function of the fluvial geomorphologist.
Fundamentals of Fluvial Geomorphology is an vital introductory textual content for first and moment yr undergraduates. It offers readers with a transparent knowing of ways the fluvial process operates at diversified spatial and temporal scales.
"This good-looking, concise quantity units forth to supply and creation to fluvial geomorphology at a mid-undergraduate point, and it does so nicely." -- I.S. Sasowsky, Choice

It is a scanned (un-OCR-ed) PDF of the Lecture Notes that Kaplan clinical distributes if you happen to take one among their prep classes for the USMLE Step 1 exam.
The following preface references 7 volumes. This comprises merely the Pharmacology volume.
These 7 volumes of Lecture Notes characterize the main -likely-to-be-tested fabric at the present USMLE Step 1 examination. Please word that those are Lecture Notes, now not evaluate books. The Notes have been designed to be followed via college lectures-live, on video, or on the net. interpreting them with out having access to the accompanying lectures isn't a good way to study for the USMLE.
To maximize the effectiveness of those Notes, annotate them as you hearken to lectures. To facilitate this approach, we've created large, clean margins. whereas those margins are sometimes punctuated through college high-yield "margin notes," they're, for the main half, left clean in your notations.
Many scholars locate that previewing the Notes ahead of the lecture is a really powerful approach to arrange for sophistication. this permits you to count on the components the place you'll have to pay specific realization. It additionally presents you the chance to map out how the data goes to be provided and what kind of examine aids (charts, diagrams, etc.) you want to upload. This approach works whether you're attending a stay lecture or looking at one on video or the internet.

Clear and Concise. Varberg makes a speciality of the main severe concepts.
This renowned calculus textual content continues to be the shortest mainstream calculus ebook to be had – but covers all relevant material wanted through, and applicable to, the learn of calculus at this level. It's conciseness and readability is helping you concentration on, and understand, critical ideas in calculus with out them getting slowed down and misplaced in over the top and pointless detail. It is exact, with out being excessively rigorous, updated with no being faddish.

Likelihood, Random Variables, and Random procedures is a entire textbook on chance conception for engineers that gives a extra rigorous mathematical framework than is generally encountered in undergraduate classes. it's meant for first-year graduate scholars who've a few familiarity with chance and random variables, although no longer unavoidably of random approaches and platforms that function on random signs. it's also applicable for complex undergraduate scholars who've a robust mathematical background.
The ebook has the next features:
•Several appendices contain comparable fabric on integration, vital inequalities and identities, frequency-domain transforms, and linear algebra. those subject matters were integrated in order that the publication is comparatively self-contained. One appendix comprises an intensive precis of 33 random variables and their homes akin to moments, attribute capabilities, and entropy.
•Unlike so much books on chance, a variety of figures were integrated to elucidate and extend upon details. Over six hundred illustrations and MATLAB plots were designed to augment the cloth and illustrate a number of the characterizations and houses of random quantities.
•Sufficient information are coated intimately, as is their connection to parameter estimation suggestions. those comprise classical Bayesian estimation and a number of other optimality standards: mean-square errors, mean-absolute mistakes, greatest chance, approach to moments, and least squares.
•The final 4 chapters offer an advent to numerous themes often studied in next engineering classes: conversation platforms and knowledge concept; optimum filtering (Wiener and Kalman); adaptive filtering (FIR and IIR); and antenna beamforming, channel equalization, and course discovering. This fabric is obtainable electronically on the spouse website.
Probability, Random Variables, and Random procedures is the single textbook on likelihood for engineers that incorporates suitable historical past fabric, offers broad summaries of key effects, and extends numerous statistical innovations to a variety of purposes in sign processing.
