About this book

This topical volume reviews applications of continuum mechanics to systems in geophysics and the environment. Part of the text is devoted to numerical simulations and modeling. The topics covered include soil mechanics and porous media, glacier and ice dynamics, climatology and lake physics, climate change as well as numerical algorithms. The book, written by well-known experts, addresses researchers and students interested in physical aspects of our environment.

[...] primarily intended for active researchers interested in geophysical modeling. [...] Although most of the material can be found in other places, this is a nice collection and should be a welcome addition to one's personal library. (Applied Mechanics Review, 55/4, 2002)
