      These books are as factual as a science textbook, complete with graphs, charts, and diagrams, but are far more appealing with their comic-book narration. Understanding Global Warming With Max Axiom, Super Scientist and Getting to the Bottom of Global Warming: An Isabel Soto Investigation are definitely content-heavy nonfiction that address both. The first two subtests focus on general sciences, while Subtest III measures proficiency in the candidate's specialty area, in this case, Earth and planetary science.

The mathematics are introduced at a level that assumes only an understanding of first-year calculus.5/5(1). Modern continuum mechanics is the topic of this book. After its introduction it will be applied to a few typical systems arising in the environmental sciences and in geophysics. In large lake/ocean dynamics peculiar effects of the rotation of the Earth will be analyzed in linear/nonlinear processes of a homogenous and inhomogenous water body.

Genomic Approaches in Earth and Environmental Sciences begins by covering the role of microorganisms in earth and environmental processes. It then goes on to discuss how omics approaches provide new windows into geobiological processes.

The book then discusses the methods used in the field, beginning with an overview of current technologies. Latest Earth and Environmental Science academic books, ebooks, and textbooks from Cambridge University Press. Mechanics Second Edition P.
