In recent years, the focus in hydrogeologic investigations has expanded to include aquifer sustainability as part of resource evaluations. While there are other books on the subject, Field Hydrogeology: A Guide for Site Investigations and Report Preparation provides the first integrated presentation of the American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM) standards, US Geological Survey (USGS), and US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) field techniques. It also includes access to a website containing software for designing aquifer tests and aquifer-recharge experiments.

Written by an author with more than 50 years of experience in hydrology and geology, this reference treats the subject from a field standpoint. Useful as a field guide or textbook, it contains standard methods for planning and undertaking hydrogeologic investigations. It incorporates case studies, contains a glossary of field-hydrogeology technical terms, and provides a detailed list of ASTM standards and key hydrologic Web sites.

The guide is based on ASTM standards as well as EPA and US Department of Interior field technical manuals. The text covers hydrogeologic fundamentals, conceptual models, planning an investigation, surface investigations, subsurface investigations, field inventory, stream flow measurements, water quality measurements, and report preparation. This revised and updated Second Edition also includes new material on the history of hydrogeology, field safety, aquifers, groundwater quality, hydrogeologic maps, and federal regulations. It gives students and seasoned professionals a vast array of clearly written descriptive materials and an extensive source of references available at their fingertips.

What's New in This Second Edition:

  • New chapter on the history of hydrogeology
  • New chapter on groundwater development and management, including US federal regulations and transboundary aquifers
  • New material on field safety, groundwater quality and testing, and construction of hydrogeologic cross section and maps
  • New international case studies
  • New THEIS computer model to design aquifer tests
  • Updated information on latest principles and techniques

Field Effect Transistors, A Comprehensive Overview

RRP $68.00

This book discusses modern-day Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistors (MOSFETs) and future trends of transistor devices.

This book provides an overview of Field Effect Transistors (FETs) by discussing the basic principles of FETs and exploring the latest technological developments in the field. It covers and connects a wide spectrum of topics related to semiconductor device physics, physics of transistors, and advanced transistor concepts. This book contains six chapters. Chapter 1 discusses electronic materials and charge. Chapter 2 examines junctions, discusses contacts under thermal-equilibrium, metal-semiconductor contacts, and metal-insulator-semiconductor systems. Chapter 3 covers traditional planar Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistors (MOSFETs). Chapter 4 describes scaling-driving technological variations and novel dimensions of MOSFETs. Chapter 5 analyzes Heterojunction Field Effect Transistors (FETs) and also discusses the challenges and rewards of heteroepitaxy. Finally, Chapter 6 examines FETs at molecular scales.

  • Links the discussion of contemporary transistor devices to physical processes
  • Material has been class-tested in undergraduate and graduate courses on the design of integrated circuit components taught by the author
  • Contains examples and end-of-chapter problems

Field Effect Transistors, A Comprehensive Overview: From Basic Concepts to Novel Technologies is a reference for senior undergraduate / graduate students and professional engineers needing insight into physics of operation of modern FETs.

Pouya Valizadeh is Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Concordia University in Quebec, Canada.

1 Dass ich erkenne, was die Welt im Innersten zusammenh] alt. Faust Concepts without intuition are empty, intuition without concepts is blind. Immanuel Kant (1724 1804) The greatest mathematicians like Archimedes, Newton, and Gauss have always been able to combine theory and applications into one. Felix Klein (1849 1925) The present comprehensive introduction to the mathematical and physical aspects of quantum ?eld theory consists of the following six volumes: Volume I: Basics in Mathematics and Physics Volume II: Quantum Electrodynamics Volume III: Gauge Theory Volume IV: Quantum Mathematics Volume V: The Physics of the Standard Model Volume VI: Quantum Gravity and String Theory. Since ancient times, both physicists and mathematicians have tried to und- stand the forces acting in nature. Nowadays we know that there exist four fundamental forces in nature: Newton s gravitational force, Maxwell s electromagnetic force, the strong force between elementary particles, and the weak force between elementary particles (e.g., the force responsible for the radioactive decay of atoms). In the 20th century, physicists established two basic models, namely, the Standard Model in cosmology based on Einstein s theory of general relativity, and the Standard Model in elementary particle physics based on gauge theory. 1 So that I may perceive whatever holds the world together in its inmost folds."

Breaking The Silence On Cancer And Sexuality

This new handbook takes a clinical approach to the topic of sexuality and cancer. Examining the literature and research, Breaking the Silence on Cancer and Sexuality provides you with the tools, research, and information you need to frankly and openly discuss how cancer will impact the sexual activity of your patients. You will find in this new book a primer in human sexual functioning, instructions on how to conduct a sexual assessment of your patients with cancer, and information on how to communicate with your patients about their sexual functioning. Also included are details on the effects of different types of cancer on sexuality; cancer's impact on the individual and family, including information on specific patient populations from the adolescent to the older adult; and treatment modalities such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation on sexual functioning. A section is also devoted to tools for the healthcare providers, including sexuality counseling, research in sexuality, and a listing of resources for the healthcare provider. Issues and interventions are discussed in detail throughout the book, and are accompanied by case studies and resources. For a complete listing of contents, see below. Nurses will find this book to be an invaluable resource on this essential yet seldom-discussed aspect of oncology care.
