'Extreme' events - including climatic events, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, drought - can cause massive disruption to society, including large death tolls and property damage in the billions of dollars. Events in recent years have shown the importance of being prepared and that countries need to work together to help alleviate the resulting pain and suffering. This volume presents an integrated review of the broad research field of large-scale disasters. It establishes a common framework for predicting, controlling and managing both manmade and natural disasters. There is a particular focus on events caused by weather and climate change. Other topics include air pollution, tsunamis, disaster modeling, the use of remote sensing and the logistics of disaster management. It will appeal to scientists, engineers, first responders and health-care professionals, in addition to graduate students and researchers who have an interest in the prediction, prevention or mitigation of large-scale disasters.

توفر الجيولوجيا البيئية فهماً أكبر للعلاقة بيننا وبين الأرض وبيئتنا الطبيعية، وإدراك حالات الأرض كافة والتعامل معها، وينطلق كتاب (الجيولوجية البيئية) متوجهاً للطلبة والمهتمين بهذا الشأن ليكون بمنزلة تطبيق للمعلومات الجيولوجية على مختلف التقلبات والتفاعلات بين الناس وبيئتهم الطبيعية. وينقسم الكتاب في طبعته التاسعة إلى أربعة أجزاء رئيسة: الأول هو أسس الجيولوجيا البيئية، حيث يقدم المبادئ الأساسية لدراسة علم الجيولوجيا ووضع هيكل فلسفي للحالات والظواهر العامة، والتعريف بالمظاهر الجيولوجية المهمة ودراسة الأرض بصفتها نظاماً. بينما يركز الجزء الثاني على الأخطار الطبيعية، من مثل الفيضانات والبراكين والزلازل، ويفسرها، ويشرح آلية التعاطي معها. المصادر والتلوث كانت محور الجزء الثالث الذي يحتوي على نقاشات تفصيلية عن مصادر المياه وتلوثها والمصادر المعدنية والطاقة. أما الجزء الرابع فيتجه إلى العلاقة بين الجيولوجية والمجتمع والتغير المناخي العالمي والصحة البيئية والبيئة المستدامة، ويناقشها بالقوانين والشروط لوضع علاقة صحية مع المحيط من حولنا. الكتاب فيه ملاحق بكل جزء وجدول مصطلحات وملحق قوانين، وصور توضيحية مساعدة تجعل من قراءته أمراً ماتعاً وسلساً. العبيكان للنشر

يعد مسار هذه الرواية بالتحديد أكثر تعقيدًا من غيرها، فقد طرحت شِلي فيها أفكارًا جريئة جديدة بالنسبة لعصرها عن الإبداع عندما يتخطى حدود الطبيعة، وقد تعاظَم هذا المسار واستقلَّ بشكلٍ ما عن الرواية نفسها، وصار في حَدّ ذاته نوعًا من المجاز والأسطورة شَقّ لنفسه طريقًا في الفنون الأخرى مثل السينما والمسرح والكاريكاتور والكومِكس، وصار اسم فرانكنشتاين مُرادِفًا لكل إبداع عندما يصير هوسًا يَجلِب عواقب وخيمة على المُبدِع والعالم، ومرادفًا للوحشيَّة وقد تحرَّرَت من عِقالها.
