Environmental Modelling: Finding Simplicity in Complexity
Publisher: Wiley | ISBN: 0471496189 | edition 2004 | PDF | 430 pages | 5,5 mb

Simulation models are increasingly used to investigate processes and solve practical problems in a wide variety of disciplines eg. climatology, ecology, hydrology, geomorphology, engineering. Environmental Modelling: A Practical Approach addresses the development, testing and application of such models, which apply across traditional boundaries, and demonstrate how interactions across these boundaries can be beneficial.
• Provides a general overview of methods and approaches as well as focusing on key subject areas written by leading practitioners in the field
• Assesses the advantages and disadvantages of different models used and provides case studies supported with data, output, tutorial exercises and links to the model and/or model applications via the book's website
• Covers major developments in the field, eg. the use of GIS and remote sensing techniques, and scaling issues
• As associated website contains colour images, as well as links to www resources

Hidden Markov Models for Time Series: An Introduction Using R (Monographs on Statistics and Applied Probability)

Hidden Markov Models for Time Series
Walter Zucchini, Iain L. MacDonald | Chapman & Hall/CRC | 2009-04-28 | ISBN:1584885734 | Pages: 269 | PDF | 5.3MB

This book illustrates the wonderful flexibility of HMMs as general-purpose models for time series data. It presents an accessible overview of HMMs for analyzing time series data, from continuous-valued, circular, and multivariate series to binary data, bounded and unbounded counts, and categorical observations. It explores a variety of applications in animal behavior, finance, epidemiology, climatology, and sociology. The authors discuss how to employ the freely available computing environment R to carry out computations for parameter estimation, model selection and checking, decoding, and forecasting. They provide all of the data sets analyzed in the text online.

Linking Climate Change to Land Surface Change
Springer; 1 edition | March 30, 2007 | ISBN: 0792366387 | 276 pages | PDF | 13.5 Mb

Our views and understanding of variations in climate, geomorphological processes and the interrelationships that exist between climatic changes and land surface changes, both now and in the past, have developed greatly over the last decade. This book aims to encapsulate some of these recent advances and focuses on the integration of research that has been conducted by geomorphologists and climatologists on linking climate and land surface changes. This book is divided into two main parts: Section A incorporates research that has concentrated on short-term variations in climate, whilst Section B looks at some of the work on long-term climate variability. The volume concludes with a summary chapter that brings together the various ideas that have been presented in this work and other recent research in this general field. This text will be of interest to upper level students of geomorphology, Quaternary studies, climatology, earth sciences, and environmental studies. It will also be of use to researchers in these fields.
