Raging floods, massive storms and cataclysmic earthquakes: every year up to 340 million people are affected by these and other disasters, which cause loss of life and damage to personal property, agriculture, and infrastructure. So what can be done? The key to understanding the causes of disasters and mitigating their impacts is the concept of 'vulnerability'. Mapping Vulnerability analyses 'vulnerability' as a concept central to the way we understand disasters and their magnitude and impact. Written and edited by a distinguished group of disaster scholars and practitioners, this book is a counterbalance to those technocratic approaches that limit themselves to simply looking at disasters as natural phenomena. Through the notion of vulnerability, the authors stress the importance of social processes and human-environmental interactions as causal agents in the making of disasters. They critically examine what renders communities unsafe - a condition, they argue, that depends primarily on the relative position of advantage or disadvantage that a particular group occupies within a society's social order. The book also looks at vulnerability in terms of its relationship to development and its impact on policy and people's lives, through consideration of selected case studies drawn from Africa, Asia and Latin America. Mapping Vulnerability is essential reading for academics, students, policymakers and practitioners in disaster studies, geography, development studies, economics, environmental studies and sociology.

As researchers continue to make enormous progress in mapping disease genes, exciting, novel, and complex analyses have emerged. In "Linkage Disequilibrium and Association Mapping: Analysis and Applications," scientists from around the world, who are leaders in this field, contribute their vast experience and expertise to produce a comprehensive and fascinating text for researchers and clinicians alike. The volume comprises four general sections: the first presents an overview and historical basis of the subject. The second section considers the developing methodology and recent findings from studies which have characterized the genome-wide linkage disequilibrium structure in enormous detail. The following section examines all aspects of disease association mapping methodology, and the final two chapters review the early successes in mapping genes involved in two of the most important human diseases: asthma and type 2 diabetes.

Competencies lie at the heart of every of every successful activity. Organizations across the world are trying to understand and integrate competencies in their organizational processes. This book is designed as handbook to help managers and executives understand, develop, manage competencies and also map them within their organizations. Assuming no prior knowledge, the book introduces the reader to the concept of competencies and how they work. It then helps the reader understand the why and how of competency models. In an accessible structure and framework, this book tackles some key issues with regard to this contemporary subject. Written in a jargon-free and accessible style, this book will be useful to managers in strategizing , developing, mapping and implementing competency frameworks in their organizations

The dangers that we face from geohazards appear to be getting worse, especially with the impact of increasing population and global climate change. This collection of papers illustrates how remote sensing technologies - measuring, mapping and monitoring the Earth's surface from aircraft or satellites - can help us to rapidly detect and better manage geohazards. The hazardous terrains examined include areas of landslides, flooding, erosion, contaminated land, shrink-swell clays, subsidence, seismic activity and volcanic landforms. Key aspects of remote sensing are introduced, making this a book that can easily be read by those who are unfamiliar with remote sensing. The featured remote sensing systems include aerial photography and photogrammetry, thermal scanning, hyperspectral sensors, airborne laser altimetry (LiDAR), radar interferometry and multispectral satellites (Landsat, ASTER). Related technologies and methodologies, such as the processing of Digital Elevation Models and data analysis using Geographical Information Systems, are also discussed.

This book is a guide on conformal mappings, their applications in physics and technology, and their computer-aided visualization. Conformal mapping (CM) is a classical part of complex analysis having numerous applications to mathematical physics. This modern handbook on CM includes recent results such as the classification of all triangles and quadrangles that can be mapped by elementary functions, mappings realized by elliptic integrals and Jacobian elliptic functions, and mappings of doubly connected domains. This handbook considers a wide array of applications, among which are the construction of a Green function for various boundary-value problems, streaming around airfoils, the impact of a cylinder on the surface of a liquid, and filtration under a dam. With more than 160 domains included in the catalog of mapping, Handbook of Conformal Mapping with Computer-Aided Visualization is more complete and useful than any previous volume covering this important topic. The authors have developed an interactive ready-to-use software program for constructing conformal mappings and visualizing plane harmonic vector fields. The book includes a floppy disk for IBM-compatible computers that contains the CONFORM program.
