An Introduction to Planetary Nebulae

by Jason J Nishiyama

In this book we will look at what planetary nebulae are, where they come from and where they go. We will discuss what mechanisms cause these beautiful markers of stellar demise as well as what causes them to...


Quantifying Uncertainty in Subsurface Systems

by Céline Scheidt, Lewis Li & Jef Caers

Under the Earth's surface is a rich array of geological resources, many with potential use to humankind. However, extracting and harnessing them comes with enormous uncertainties, high costs, and considerable...


Geophysics: A Very Short Introduction

by William Lowrie

Geophysics is the physics of the Earth. Central to the Earth Sciences today, it encompasses areas such as seismology, volcanism, plate tectonics, gravitational anomalies, and the Earth's magnetic field (present...
