About this book

Nonlinear Dynamics in Geosciences is comprised of the proceedings of "20 Years of Nonlinear Dynamics in Geosciences", held June 11-16, 2006 in Rhodes, Greece as part of the Aegean Conferences. The volume brings together the most up-to-date research from the atmospheric sciences, hydrology, geology, and other areas of geosciences, and discusses the advances made in the last two decades and the future directions of nonlinear dynamics. Topics covered include predictability, ensemble prediction, nonlinear prediction, nonlinear time series analysis, low-dimensional chaos, nonlinear modeling, fractals and multifractals, bifurcation, complex networks, self-organized criticality, extreme events, and other aspects of nonlinear science.

 

About the Editors:

Dr. Anastasios Tsonis is Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, WI, USA. Dr. James Elsner is Professor in the Department of Geography at Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL, USA.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Nonlinear Dynamics in the Geosciences presents an eclectic collection of papers with the specific intent of exposing the reader to the breadth of scientific challenges in nonlinear geosciences, and to identifying common themes or approaches for solving these problems. … I recommend the book for both experts and those interested in perusing research in nonlinear dynamics. The cited references alone are of tremendous value." (Ben P. Kirtman, Eos, Vol. 89 (36), 2008)

“To provide a broad overview of the applications of nonlinear dynamics in the geosciences … . Technically, the book is of a rather good quality. … clear strength of the book is to provide a wealth of references to the current state of nonlinear science. …The book can serve both the novice and the expert reader – and what’s more, it will still remain an interesting read after the novice has become an expert himself.” (N. Dotzek, Meterologische Zeitschrift, Vol. 19 (1), February, 2010)
