Soil Moisture Book Review:

This book is aimed at the majority of audiences who need to rapidly obtain a concise overview of soil moisture measurement and management. Many existing soil moisture textbooks cater for a traditional market where readers rely on years of study presented in a slender discipline. The evolution of segmental schemes has meant that soil moisture is now often included as a part of broad-based soil science programs. For those opting to specialise in soil moisture, this is a good book to choose. This book will be very useful to students, researchers and other readers who do not hold a traditional scientific background, such as those studying geography, environment science, ecology and agriculture. This book provides a concise overview of soil moisture knowledge.

Drinking-Water Distribution, Sewage, and Rainfall Collection, Third Edition Book Review:

Drinking Water Distribution, Sewage, and Rainfall Collection (Back cover) Drinking Water Distribution, Sewage, and Rainfall Collection is the first textbook produced in French and English entirely devoted to practical hydraulic problems as they occur in modern cities. It looks at the design and application of equipment for drinking water distribution, runoff and sewage collection. Fundamental hydraulic principles are presented clearly and their application is illustrated in examples representative of real-world situations. Exercises and problems enable students to test their knowledge in each chapter. Specific topics include the measurement of sewage flow, sewage pumping stations, pump selection, inverted siphon, and characteristics of pipes available on the market in a wide variety of materials. The textbook also covers issues such as water hammer and other overpressures, dead and live loads, underground pipe installation, water supply to high rise buildings, the design of sewer and water service connections, water flows and volumes for fire fighting, water intake and intake pipes, fire hydrants, water inlets and valve settings on water networks, sewage outfall, pipe freezing and corrosion, thrust blocks and restrained joints, culverts, etc. One chapter is entirely devoted to waterborne diseases, chemical contaminants and dangerous gases that accumulate in enclosed spaces. Engineers, technicians and scientists can use the textbook to learn the basic requirements for designing and evaluating sanitary storm networks, sewage networks and water distribution networks. François G. Brière is a civil engineer and Professor in the Department of Civil, Geological and Mining Engineering at the École Polytechnique de Montréal. He received his education in Québec and the United States and worked for the Ministère des Affaires municipales et des Régions du Québec (Ministry of municipal and regional affairs of Québec) before entering academia, where he has taught water chemistry, sewage treatment and urban hydraulics for more than 30 years.

Smith's Elements of Soil Mechanics Book Review:

This core undergraduate textbook for civil engineers is the first to cover the fundamental changes in the ethos of geotechnical design advocated in the now published Eurocode 7. This code will be fully adopted across Europe by 2010 and its implementation will mean a radical shift to limit state design. Ian Smith makes understanding this new approach to geotechnical design less daunting to the student with clear explanatory text, detailed illustrations and several worked examples, covering a range of topics including slope stability, retaining walls and shallow and deep foundations. Downloadable spreadsheets help to illustrate how the new Eurocode is applied and the book’s website also gives the worked solutions to self-test questions at the end of each chapter. Now in its 8th edition, this well-established textbook has been updated and re-designed with improved page layout and illustrations making it the essential user-friendly introduction to soil mechanics and geotechnical design to Eurocode 7.

Soil Mechanics Book Review:

A logical, integrated and comprehensive coverage of both introductory and advanced topics in soil mechanics in an easy-to-understand style. Emphasis is placed on presenting fundamental behaviour before more advanced topics are introduced. The use of S.I. units throughout, and frequent references to current international codes of practice and refereed research papers, make the contents universally applicable. Written with the university student in mind and packed full of pedagogical features, this book provides an integrated and comprehensive coverage of both introductory and advanced topics in soil mechanics. It includes: worked examples to elucidate the technical content and facilitate self-learning a convenient structure (the book is divided into sections), enabling it to be used throughout second, third and fourth year undergraduate courses universally applicable contents through the use of SI units throughout, frequent references to current international codes of practice and refereed research papers new and advanced topics that extend beyond those in standard undergraduate courses. The perfect textbook for a range of courses on soils mechanics and also a very valuable resource for practising professional engineers.

The Words in My Hands Book Review:

Part coming of age, part call to action, this fast-paced #ownvoices novel about a Deaf teenager is a unique and inspiring exploration of what it means to belong. Smart, artistic, and independent, sixteen year old Piper is tired of trying to conform. Her mom wants her to be “normal,” to pass as hearing, to get a good job. But in a time of food scarcity, environmental collapse, and political corruption, Piper has other things on her mind—like survival. Piper has always been told that she needs to compensate for her Deafness in a world made for those who can hear. But when she meets Marley, a new world opens up—one where Deafness is something to celebrate, and where resilience means taking action, building a com-munity, and believing in something better. Published to rave reviews as Future Girl in Australia (Allen & Unwin, Sept. 2020), this empowering, unforgettable story is told through a visual extravaganza of text, paint, collage, and drawings. Set in an ominously prescient near future, The Words in My Hands is very much a novel for our turbulent times.

Grassland Ecosystems of China Book Review:

This book provides a comprehensive overview of grassland ecosystems based on publications by Chinese scholars. It offers an up-to-date review of the recent advances in grassland research in China, discusses the climatic and physical conditions governing the grasslands, describes their types and distribution, and introduces a new classification scheme for grassland ecosystems. Further, it details the plant, animal, and microbial compositions of each grassland ecosystem type, examining the above and below ground relationships between phytomass, vegetation succession, and past/current management practices with a particular focus on the steppes in China. It also includes references that are only available in the Chinese language. This scientifically rigorous book offers insights into knowledge gaps for the scientific community and identifies pressing issues facing practitioners of grassland ecology and management. It can be used as a textbook for undergraduate and graduate students in ecology, environmental science, natural resource management, agriculture, and other relevant fields, and is also a valuable reference resource for researchers studying drylands in China or around the globe.
