READING: Earth System: History and Natural Variability theme is a component of Encyclopedia of Natural Resources Policy and Management, in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias. The Theme on Earth System: History and Natural Variability with contributions from distinguished experts in the field, presents a description of the cosmic environment around our planet influencing the Earth in a number of ways through variation of solar energy or meteorite impacts. The structure of the Earth and its rocks, waters and atmosphere is described. The Theme focuses on geological and evolutionary processes through the history of Earth's epochs and biomes since the Early Earth to the Quaternary. The unifying processes between the Earth's life and its rocks, waters and atmosphere are global natural cycles of carbon, sulfur and other elements that connect and influence the rate of geological processes, climate change, biological evolution and human economy. These five volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: This exciting new reader in environmental history provides a framework for understanding the relations between ecosystems and world systems over time. Alf Hornborg has brought together a group of the foremost writers from the social, historical and geographical sciences to provide an overview of the ecological dimension of global, economic processes, with a long-term, historical perspective. Readers are challenged to integrate studies of the Earth system with studies of the World system, and to reconceptualize human-environmental relations and the challenges of global sustainability. Immanuel Wallerstein, renowned Yale sociologist and originator of the world-system concept, closes the volume with his reflections on the intellectual, moral, and political implications of global environmental change.

READING: In this benchmark volume top scholars come together to present state-of-the-art research and pursue a more rigorous framework for understanding and studying the linkages between social and ecological systems. Contributors from a wide spectrum of disciplines, including archaeology, anthropology, geography, ecology, palaeo-science, geology, sociology, and history, present and assess both the evolution of our thinking and current, state-of-the-art theory and research. Covering ancient through modern periods, they discuss the complex ways in which human culture, economy, and demographics interact with ecology and climate change. The World System and the Earth System is critical reading for all scholars and students working at the interface of nature and society.Contributors: Thomas Abel, Björn Berglund, Chris Chase-Dunn, Alfred Crosby, Carole L.

READING: Global Change and the Earth System describes what is known about the Earth system and the impact of changes caused by humans. It considers the consequences of these changes with respect to the stability of the Earth system and the well-being of humankind; as well as exploring future paths towards Earth-system science in support of global sustainability. The results presented here are based on 10 years of research on global change by many of the world's most eminent scholars. This valuable volume achieves a new level of integration and interdisciplinarity in treating global change.

READING: Addressed to students pursuing studies in the broad interdisciplinary field of Earth Science, this Third Edition provides an insight into the Earth’s unique internal physical state and the compositions of its geospheres. The highly complicated dynamic mechanism of Plate Tectonics, the geochemical exchange of matter between the core, mantle and the crust as also between the hydrosphere-atmosphere-biosphere, resulting in the formation of the crustal rocks and mineral deposits, have all been written in a comprehensible manner so that even a beginner in Earth Science can easily understand these phenomena. While outlining the geological and radiometric methods of measuring the ‘Geological Time’ and characterizing the surface and subsurface geological record in terms of rock formations, fossils, mineral deposits, oil, gas and water resources, the book interconnects the magmatic, metamorphic and sedimentary processes within a ‘System’ driven by the Earth’s internal heat and the radiations received from the Sun. There is a full chapter addressing the major present-day concerns regarding the causes of natural disasters and environmental threats.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Honderdduizend jaar geleden leefde de Homo sapiens nog een tamelijk onbekommerd bestaan in een uithoek van het Afrikaanse continent en deelde hij de planeet met ten minste vijf andere menssoorten. Maar op een zeker moment onderging het brein van deze mens een ingrijpende verandering: nu kon hij zich plots verbeelden dat het gras elders wel eens groener zou kunnen zijn, en dus maakte hij zich op om de wereld te veroveren. In Sapiens neemt Yuval Noah Harari ons mee op een fascinerende reis door de geschiedenis van de mensheid. Wie zijn we? Waar komen we vandaan? En hoe zijn we zo geworden als we nu zijn? In zijn aanstekelijke relaas laat Harari ons kennismaken met het meest dominante wezen op aarde: de mens.

READING: Early Earth Systems provides a complete history of the Earth from its beginnings to the end of the Archaean. This journey through the Earth's early history begins with the Earth's origin, then examines the evolution of the mantle, the origin of the continental crust, the origin and evolution of the Earth's atmosphere and oceans, and ends with the origin of life. Looks at the evidence for the Earth's very early differentiation into core, mantle, crust, atmosphere and oceans and how this differentiation saw extreme interactions within the Earth system. Discusses Archaean Earth processes within the framework of the Earth System Science paradigm, providing a qualitative assessment of the principal reservoirs and fluxes in the early Earth. “The book would be perfect for a graduate-level or upper level undergraduate course on the early Earth. It will also serve as a great starting point for researchers in solid-Earth geochemistry who want to know more about the Earth’s early atmosphere and biosphere, and vice versa for low temperature geochemists who want to get a modern overview of the Earth’s interior.” Geological Magazine, 2008

READING: Over the last decade, the study of cycles as a model for the earth's changing climate has become a new science. Earth Systems Science is the basis for understanding all aspects of anthropogenic global change, such as chemically forced global climate change. The work is aimed at those students interested in the emerging scientific discipline. Earth Systems Science is an integrated discipline that has been rapidly developing over the last two decades. New information is included in this updated edition so that the text remains relevant. This volume contains five new chapters, but of special importance is the inclusion of an expanded set of student exercises. The two senior authors are leading scientists in their fields and have been awarded numerous prizes for their research efforts. * First edition was widely adopted * Authors are highly respected in their field * Global climate change, integral to the book, is now one of the most important issues in atmospheric sciences and oceanography
