Biogeochemical cycles [Lecture notes]
Wageningen University \ 2008
biogeochemistry - cycling - nitrogen cycle - carbon cycle

Used in course: ESS-31806 Earth's Biogeochemical Cycles and Climate Change
Treatise on geochemistry - Vol. 8: Biogeochemistry [Monograph]
Schlesinger, W.H. \ 2004
biogeochemistry - geochemistry - carbon cycle - nitrogen cycle - life - human impact

For the past 3.8 billion years, the geochemistry of the Earth's surface - its atmosphere, waters and exposed crust - has been determined by the presence of biota. Photosynthetic organisms exposed the Earth's surface to oxygen, denitrifying bacteria have maintained the nitrogen concentration in Earth's atmosphere, and land plants have determined the rate of chemical weathering. Life determines the global biogeochemical cycles of the elements of biochemistry, especially C, N, P and S. This book traces the origin and impact of life on the geochemistry of the Earth's surface, with special emphasis on the current human impact on global biogeochemical cycles.

Used in course: ESS-31806 Earth's Biogeochemical Cycles and Climate Change
The Earth system : scale dependence, feedbacks and global change [Lecture notes]
Kruijt, B. \ Ganzeveld, L. \ Kabat, P. \ Duizendstraal, M. \ Fransen, H. \ 2009

Used in course: ESS-20306 System Earth: Scale Dependence, Feedbacks and Global Change
Chapin, F.S. \ Matson, P.A. \ Vitousek, P.M. \ cop. 2011
ecosystems - terrestrial ecosystems - terrestrial ecology - ecology - cycling - human impact - environment - textbooks

Ecosystem ecology regards living organisms, including people, and the elements of their environment as components of a single integrated system. The coverage in this textbook examines the central processes at work in terrestrial ecosystems, including their freshwater components. It traces the flow of energy, water, carbon, and nutrients from their abiotic origins to their cycles through plants, animals, and decomposer organisms. As well as detailing the processes themselves, the book goes further to integrate them at various scales of magnitude—those of the ecosystem, the wider landscape and the globe. It synthesizes recent advances in ecology with established and emerging ecosystem theory to offer a wide-ranging survey of ecosystem patterns and processes in our terrestrial environment.

Used in course: ESS-21306 Principles of Earth and Ecosystem Science; SOQ-23306 Principles of Earth and Ecosystem Science
A climate modelling primer [Monograph] - 3rd ed
McGuffie, K. \ Henderson-Sellers, A. \ 2005
climate - climatic change - climatic factors - mathematical models - models - simulation models - computer simulation - Climatology Mathematical models

This updated edition of a successful text explains the basis and mechanisms of all types of physically based climate models and prepares the reader for the climate modelling literature. It will assist in understanding the relative complexities and applicabilities of the whole range of climate models without needing to follow each step or parameterization in a particular model. New features include: Updated and improved illustrations and photos Discussion of Earth System Models of Intermediate Complexity (EMICs) Interactive exercises based on Energy Balance Model (EBM) and the Daisyworld model Updated programs for Win98 and Macintosh OSX Expanded consideration of the modelling of ocean circulation An accompanying CD includes: Window and Macintosh programs for an Energy Balance Model and other simple climate models Data from climate models in a form suitable for classroom use Selected figures from the book in a form suitable for inclusion in presentations and lectures

Used in course: ESS-32306 Earth System Modelling
The earth system [Monograph] - 3rd ed., new international ed
Kump, L.R. \ Kasting, J.F. \ Crane, R.G. \ 2014
geology - climatic factors - climatic change - global warming - greenhouse effect - atmosphere - oceanography - biogeography - biogeochemistry - circulation - models - biodiversity - tectonics - degradation - earth - earth sciences - textbooks

Used in course: ESS-20306 System Earth: Scale Dependence, Feedbacks and Global Change; MAQ-23306 System Earth: Scale Dependence, Feedbacks and Global Change
