A User's Guide for Planet Earth: Fundamentals of Environmental Science provides students with an exploration of the fundamental components of Earth's environmental systems, their interactions, and the way society affects and is affected by alterations in climate, ecosystems, hydrology, and various additional factors. The text distills essential environmental science concepts into an easy-to-understand and highly digestible textbook. The book begins by exploring several key background issues that lay the foundation for understanding the processes and drivers that control the behavior of the environment. It then delves into the main environmental systems of ecosystems, biogeochemical cycles, water, agriculture, oceans, human health, energy, and climate, culminating in a discussion of the Earth system. Students develop a fundamental understanding of how environmental processes are influenced by and can influence humans and broader society. In the revised second edition, population statistics, figures, captions, and research regarding global warming temperatures and carbon dioxide have been updated to reflect 2020 data. Additionally, COVID-19 within the context of environmental science is addressed. A User's Guide for Planet Earth is written for introductory environmental science courses. The clear, concise style of the text helps students grasp critical concepts without any prerequisite requirements. Dork Sahagian is an internationally recognized Earth and environmental scientist and shared Nobel Peace Prize winner. He earned his Ph.D. in geophysics from the University of Chicago and M.S. in geosciences at Rutgers, after earning his B.S. in physics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Dr. Sahagian served as executive director of The Global Analysis, Integration, and Modeling Task Force for the International Geosphere Biosphere Program at the Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space at the University of New Hampshire before moving to Lehigh University to direct the Environmental Initiative, as well as develop and teach the introductory course in environmental science. Professor Sahagian's areas of research include paleoclimatology, volcanology, global change, stratigraphy, geodynamics and tectonics, hydrology, sea level changes, and the myriad ways in which society interacts with the natural environment. Part of his research led him to coauthor the pivotal reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which was jointly awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with former vice president Al Gore.

This book will transform the way you view yourself and live your life 'Lifenotes' is a Metaphysical exploration of the human condition on planet Earth, and as such is much more than just another discussion about creative visualization. You'll be delighted and surprised to discover the deep and intriguing twists presented by the author, as step by step, arguments and techniques provide ways of looking at Life's numerous challenges through entirely different eyes. After reading this book, your perception of what a human life is all about will be altered forever in many constructive ways. In turn, such fundamental changes to your world-view can become the beginning of an entirely new and exciting chapter of your Life Journey. Reading 'Lifenotes', you'll find yourself reconsidering various things you may have believed about yourself and life, such as reincarnation being a simultaneous rather than sequential process; that creative visualization is ultimately a journey into spirituality - not just materiality; that we are Co-creators - not the Creator; that creative visualization certainly works, but requires both understanding and skill... and much more. Here is a book for the novice within the Metaphysical arena of thinking, as well as for those who have already done much research and practice in this field. Both kinds of readers will find much to delight, challenge and augment their ability to live the human experience from a greatly enhanced point of empowerment.

This book de-mystifies the jargon of webcams and computer processing, and provides detailed hints and tips for imaging the Sun, Moon and planets with a webcam. It demonstrates how inexpensive tools are revolutionizing imaging in amateur astronomy. Anyone with a modest telescope and a webcam can now obtain jaw-dropping lunar and planetary images to rival those taken with mid-range astronomical CCD cameras costing thousands of dollars. A glance through the images in this book shows just what spectacular results can be achieved by using a webcam with your telescope! Your scientific results will be sought by professional astronomers.
