About this book

Describes a simulation system based on sets of computer algorithms for comprehensive analysis of data from global and regional monitoring systems. Chapters in the theoretical part of the book contain descriptions of rigorous algorithms and global environmental models. The applied part considers specific problems of environmental dynamics in areas such as the Arctic and the Caspian-Aral Seas

Contents

Introduction.- The Basic Principles of Global Ecoinformatics.- Mathematical Model for Global Ecological investigations.- Modelling of Ocean Ecosystem Dynamics.- Application of a Global Model to the Study of Arctic Basin Pollution.- Estimation of the Peruvian Current Ecosystem.- A New Technology for Monitoring Environment in the Okhotsk Sea.- Pollutants Dynamics in the Angara-Yenisey River System (AYRS).- Realization of the GIMS Technology for the Study of the Aral-Caspian Aquageosystem.- Monitoring of the Seas in the Oil and Gas Extraction Zones.- Decision Making Procedures in Environmental Monitoring Systems.

Media reviews

From the reviews: "This book takes as its initial premise the recognition that a new type of global environmental science is required in order to tackle complex real world issues ! . The authors propose that their Geoinformation Monitoring System (GIMS), a modular integration of mathematical modelling with Geographical Information Systems (GIS) technology, can achieve this worthy aim. ! it would be of most value to those interested in ! open mindedly considering a novel approach to modelling environmental phenomena, with special emphasis on the biosphere." (Iain Brown, The Holocene, Vol. 14 (2), 2004) "It is a contribution to the synthesis of complex problems for the collection of environmental information and for uniting GIS, remote and local measurements with models. Such systems are called geo-information monitoring systems (GIMS) ! . it provides insight in an interesting area of research that has mainly been published in Russian. ! Researchers who are interested in global environmental problems and applied mathematics, such as hydrologists and geophysicists, should find useful information in this publication." (Luc Hens, International Journal of Environment and Pollution, Vol. 21 (6), 2004)
