  • Aeolian Sand and Sand Dunes

    Aeolian Sand and Sand Dunes

    Aeolian sand and sand dunes is an important review of the recent literature dealing with the mechanics of aeolian sand transport, sand dune dynamics, internal structure, and the post-depositional processes that modify the properties of aeolian sand. Partly as a result of increasing concern about the effects of climatic change, agricultural development in arid areas, and sea-level rise on coasts, the past two decades have seen vastly expanded ...

  • Origin and Early Evolution of Comet Nuclei

    Origin and Early Evolution of Comet Nuclei

    Comet nuclei are the most primitive bodies in the solar system. They have been created far away from the early Sun and it is supposed that their material has been altered the least since their formation. The workshop was bringing together representatives of several scientific communities in the fields of interstellar clouds, star-forming regions, the solar nebula, and comets. The intent was to formulate the current understanding and ...

  • Pseudocereals and Less Common Cereals

    Pseudocereals and Less Common Cereals

    This book, written by leading grain scientists from Europe and Africa, examines six such grains that have been important food crops in various parts of the world and have the potential for much greater and more widespread use. The chemistry, nutritional value, food processing technologies and potential applications of three true cereals: sorghum, spelt wheat and the major millet species, and three dicotyledonous pseudocereals: grain amaranth, ...

    Cereals and Pseudocereals

    The world continues to depend heavily upon a relatively small range of crops for food, fuel, fibre and industrial use, while many potentially good, economically acceptable alternatives exist. This book, which is the second in a series looking at underutilized crops, provides thorough details of those underutilized cereals and pseudocereals which are currently benefiting from research and others which have been neglected and deserve more ...
