Description : Flood Rising is Book 4 of The Water Keepers series.Sadie is excited to start her new life on Ambrosia training to become a Water Keeper, and it's even more thrilling to finally be in a semi-normal relationship with the love of her life, Rayne. But the Council has made great exceptions to the laws in order to let Sadie enroll at the Academy, and the Council doesn't give out favors freely. They expect something in return. Not only is she exhausted allowing Orion and the Council to study her abilities, but Sadie feels a sick feeling deep inside that Orion is up to no good. To make matters worse, images of Voss continue to haunt her dreams, and somehow, Sadie knows that she's the only one who can find him back on Earth and stop his evildoings once and for all.
Description : Practical Music Theory provides the necessary tools for inspired music making, listening, and composing. Based on the holistic premise that music is both art and language, yet so much more, Practical Music Theory takes the musician on a journey through historic, yet relevant common practices of composition. Through this easy-to-read text, aspiring theorists encounter numerous examples from music literature, thought-provoking questions, and practical suggestions for implementation. Practical Music Theory is both a textbook and a workbook, containing an array of exercises ranging in complexity from simple to difficult. Designed for the first one to two years of instruction, it is a comprehensive volume that begins with the basic materials of music and progresses through advanced concepts and techniques. Practical Music Theory expands horizons to new worlds of musical discovery, enhancing the enjoyment of an already delightful art form.
Description : "Manhours, labor and material costs for most home improvement work. Includes instructions for doing the work, with helpful illustrations, and tricks and tips from experienced remodelers."
Description : The Bureau of Reclamation and Sandia National Laboratories jointly developed the Roadmap to serve as a strategic research pathway for desalination and water purification technologies to meet future water needs. The book recommends that the Roadmap include a sharper focus on the research and technological advancements needed to reach the long-term objectives. The book also suggests that the environmental, economic, and social costs of energy required by increased dependence on desalination be examined. Strategies for implementing the Roadmap initiative are provided.
Description : Modern hydrology is more interdisciplinary than ever. Staggering amounts and varieties of information pour in from GIS and remote sensing systems every day, and this information must be collected, interpreted, and shared efficiently. Hydroinformatics: Data Integrative Approaches in Computation, Analysis, and Modeling introduces the tools, approaches, and system considerations necessary to take full advantage of the abundant hydrological data available today. Linking hydrological science with computer engineering, networking, and database science, this book lays a pedagogical foundation in the concepts underlying developments in hydroinformatics. It begins with an introduction to data representation through Unified Modeling Language (UML), followed by digital libraries, metadata, the basics of data models, and Modelshed, a new hydrological data model. Building on this platform, the book discusses integrating and managing diverse data in large datasets, data communication issues such as XML and Grid computing, the basic principles of data processing and analysis including feature extraction and spatial registration, and modern methods of soft computing such as neural networks and genetic algorithms. Today, hydrological data are increasingly rich, complex, and multidimensional. Providing a thorough compendium of techniques and methodologies, Hydroinformatics: Data Integrative Approaches in Computation, Analysis, and Modeling is the first reference to supply the tools necessary to confront these challenges successfully.
Description : How does the energy in falling water become energy that powers an electric car? What changes does it go through along its journey? This book shows how the energy in falling water is turned into energy to power an electric car. It explains how hydroelectric power stations work, the science of electricity, how cars are made and how they use electricity, and how electric cars work.
