Its chapters cover tropical cyclones in East Asia, study of a fossil in Brazil’s Araripe Basin and the fractal nature of band-thickness in an iron formation of Canada’s Northwest Territories. One chapter examines the presence of trace elements and palynomorphs in the sediments of a tropical urban pond. Examples of technologies used include RS- GIS to map lineaments for groundwater targeting and sustainable water-resource management, the ALADIN numerical weather-prediction model used to forecast weather and use of grids in numerical weather and climate models. Finally, one chapter models sea level rises resulting from ice sheets melting.
