Alternative Energy Sources (Green Energy and Technology)

Alternative power resources is designed to provide the reader, a transparent view of the position each one type of substitute power could play in offering the power wishes of the human society within the close to destiny (20-50 years).

The first chapters on "energy call for and provide" and "environmental effects," set the tone as to why replacement strength is key for the long run. The 3rd bankruptcy offers the legislation of power conversion approaches, in addition to the constraints of changing one strength shape to a different. The part on exergy offers a quantitative heritage at the capability/potential of every power resource to provide strength. The fourth, 5th and 6th chapters are expositions of fission and fusion nuclear strength, the ability crops that can produce strength from those assets and the problems that may body the general public debate on nuclear power. the next 5 chapters comprise descriptions of the commonest renewable strength resources (wind, sunlight, geothermal, biomass, hydroelectric) a number of the much less universal resources (e.g. tidal and wave energy). The emphasis of those chapters may be at the international capability of every resource, the engineering/technical structures which are utilized in harnessing the possibility of each one resource, the technological advancements that may give a contribution to wider usage of the assets and environmental results linked to their wider use. The final 3 chapters are: "energy storage," with the intention to develop into an immense factor if renewable strength assets are used widely.

The fourteen chapters within the e-book were selected in order that one may match a semester college path round this booklet. on the finish of each bankruptcy, there are 10-20 difficulties and 1-3 feedback of semester initiatives that could be assigned to scholars for additional examine.

Reality Mining: Using Big Data to Engineer a Better World (MIT Press)

Big facts is made from plenty of little info: numbers entered into mobile phones, addresses entered into GPS units, visits to web content, on-line purchases, ATM transactions, and the other task that leaves a electronic path. even if the abuse of huge information -- surveillance, spying, hacking -- has made headlines, it should not overshadow the plentiful optimistic purposes of massive information. In Reality Mining, Nathan Eagle and Kate Greene minimize in the course of the hype and the headlines to discover the confident strength of massive info, exhibiting the ways that the research of huge facts ("Reality Mining") can be utilized to enhance human structures as various as political polling and affliction monitoring, whereas contemplating consumer privacy.

Eagle, a famous professional within the box, and Greene, an skilled expertise journalist, describe truth Mining at 5 various degrees: the person, the local and association, the town, the country, and the area. for every point, they first supply a nontechnical clarification of knowledge assortment equipment after which describe functions and platforms which were or may be equipped. those contain a cellular app that is helping people who smoke give up smoking; a office "knowledge system"; using GPS, wireless, and cellular phone information to regulate and expect site visitors flows; and the research of social media to trace the unfold of affliction. Eagle and Greene argue that enormous information, used respectfully and responsibly, may help humans stay higher, fitter, and happier lives.
