RRP $24.95

Contemporary distributed file systems are monolithic and only support single file abstractions. Nowadays, as Sai-Lai Lo explains, network storage devices have to accommodate new information media such as digital audio and video, with data radically different from the traditional text and binary code that contemporary file systems are optimized for. In this book, the author shows how, by combining new and traditional media, information can be recorded and presented in the most suitable way, and the value of a piece of information can be further enhanced by linking together related pieces. However, composite data and cross-reference between data items raise a number of system issues that have not been addressed properly before. Lo defines a new multiservice storage architecture that meets the needs of existing and emerging applications and can support multiple file abstractions. He also explores a number of related design issues. Researchers in the areas of distributed systems, network multimedia and network storage services will enjoy this book.

The book covers the principles, techniques, and standards for online GIS. This new edition covers the most recent major advances in the metadata arena. The semantic web (Web 2.0) is now well developed. GPS has also advanced in terms of the availability of location-based services, which rely on metadata and online services. In this new edition, all chapters are significantly revised and updated. Three new chapters are included to cover spatial data mining, location-based services, and new technologies.


Carbon Capture And Storage

RRP $390.99

This book focuses on issues related to a suite of technologies known as "Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)," which can be used to capture and store underground large amounts of industrial CO2 emissions. It addresses how CCS should work, as well as where, why, and how these technologies should be deployed, emphasizing the gaps to be filled in terms of research and development, technology, regulations, economics, and public acceptance.

The book is divided into three parts. The first part helps clarify the global context in which greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions can be analyzed, highlights the importance of fossil-fuel producing and consuming nations in positively driving clean fossil-fuel usage, and discusses the applicability of this technology on a global and regional level in a timely yet responsible manner. The second part provides a comprehensive overview of present and future technologies for the three elements of the CCS chain: CO2 capture, transport, and geological storage. The third part addresses the key drivers for CCS deployment worldwide. It provides analysis and assessment of the economic, regulatory, social, and environmental aspects associated with CCS development and deployment on a global scale. It offers a somewhat different perspective on CCS deployment by highlighting the environmental and socio-economic costs and benefits of CCS solutions compared to alternatives.

The book concludes with potential options and guidelines for sustainable and responsible CCS scale-up as a way to address prevailing global energy, environment, and climate concerns.
