Geografie di oggi : Metodi e strategie tra ricerca e didattica (2015)
Milano : FrancoAngeli
Notes: Questo volume è l’esito del confronto e delle riflessioni sviluppate durante il II Workshop “AIIG Giovani” organizzato a Roma nell’aprile del 2013. Nasce da un desiderio, quello di presentare l’importanza della combinazione tra metodi d’indagine tradizionali e nuovi per costruire sapere geografico, e da una passione, sostenuta dall’intreccio di relazioni umane che si evolvono nel tempo. Per chiarire quale possa essere il contributo della geografia alla comprensione del mondo contemporaneo, sempre più complesso, gli autori presentano le principali metodologie geografiche in quattro sezioni: “Territori della tecnologia”, “Identità, spazi, luoghi”, “Nodi della rete” e “Approcci sperimentali nella scuola che cambia”. Emerge dal lavoro un quadro multifocale che rispecchia la poliedricità e la trasversalità della geografia contemporanea, ancorato al comune bisogno di sviluppare strumenti interpretativi e d’azione. Ci si muove nell’ambito di una geografia critica e della complessità in grado di fornire ai cittadini globali differenti strumenti di interpretazione e comprensione del mondo, nuove metafore a partire dalle quali costruire e sperimentare forme alternative di cittadinanza consapevole ed attiva. Qui la geografia ritrova lo slancio di una disciplina fertile capace non solo di descrivere la Terra, ma anche di immaginare e creare nuovi mondi possibili. L’approdo naturale di questo percorso è la realtà scolastica dove è possibile sperimentare nuove forme di sapere e azione per rispondere alla sfida educativa contemporanea.

Digitale Datenbanken : Eine Medientheorie im Zeitalter von Big Data (2015)
Bielefeld : transcript Verlag
Keywords: Media ; Computer ; Database ; Search Engine ; Big Data ; Internet ; Digital Media ; Media Theory ; Media History ; Media Studies ; Medien ; Computer ; Datenbank ; Suchmaschine ; Big Data ; Internet ; Digitale Medien ; Medientheorie ; Mediengeschichte ; Medienwissenschaft
Notes: We have long moved on from a mere information age to the era of big data. Here, databases represent both the enormous potential for gaining knowledge of data collection and the alarming information excesses of digital culture. Furthermore, the term refers to concrete technologies and processes of gathering and accessing digital information. Media theory has to locate databases in between these very different conceptions. Marcus Burkhardt retraces the history of databases and asks how technical procedures of processing digital information determine what can be found how in databases and what knowledge can be gained through them. | Wir leben längst nicht mehr nur im Informationszeitalter, sondern in der Ära von Big Data. In dieser steht die Datenbank gleichzeitig für die riesigen Erkenntnispotenziale von Informationssammlungen wie für die bedrohlichen Informationsexzesse der digitalen Medienkultur. Zudem bezeichnet der Begriff konkrete Technologien und Verfahren der Sammlung und Bereitstellung von digitalen Informationen. Zwischen diesen sehr unterschiedlichen Auffassungen gilt es, Datenbanken medientheoretisch zu verorten. Marcus Burkhardt zeichnet die Geschichte der Datenbanken nach und fragt, wie technische Verfahren der Verwaltung digitaler Informationen bedingen, was auf welche Weise in Datenbanken gefunden und durch sie gewusst werden kann.

Arthur Smith Woodward: His Life and Influence on Modern Vertebrate Palaeontology (2016)
London : The Geological Society
Notes: Arthur Smith Woodward was the Natural History Museum's longest-serving Keeper of Geology and the world's leading expert on fossil fish. He was also an unwitting victim of the Piltdown fraud, which overshadowed his important scientific contributions. The aim of this book is to honour Smith Woodward's contributions to vertebrate palaeontology, discuss their relevance today and provide insights into the factors that made him such an eminent scientist. The last few years have seen a resurgence in fossil vertebrate (particularly fish) palaeontology, including new techniques for the ‘virtual’ study of fossils (synchrotron and micro CT-scanning) and new research foci, such as ‘Evo-Devo’ – combining fossils with the development of living animals. This new research is built on a strong foundation, like that provided by Smith Woodward's work. This collection of papers, authored by some of the leading experts in their fields, covers the many facets of Smith Woodward's life, legacy and career. It will be a benchmark for studies on one of the leading vertebrate palaeontologists of his generation.

Appreciating Physical Landscapes: Three Hundred Years of Geotourism (2016)
London : The Geological Society
Notes: Geotourism, as a form of sustainable geoheritage tourism, was defined and developed, from the early 1990s, to contextualize modern approaches to geoconservation and physical landscape management. However, its roots lie in the late seventeenth century and the emergence of the Grand Tour and its domestic equivalents in the eighteenth century. Its participants and numerous later travellers and tourists, including geologists and artists, purposefully explored wild landscapes as ‘geotourists’. The written and visual records of their observations underpin the majority of papers within this volume; these papers explore some significant geo-historical themes, organizations, individuals and locations across three centuries, opening with seventeenth century elite travellers and closing with modern landscape tourists. Other papers examine the resources available to those geotourists and explore the geotourism paradigm. The volume will be of particular interest to Earth scientists, historians of science, tourism specialists and general readers with an interest in landscape history.

Description / Table of Contents: Contents: Die Meere und der Klimawandel: Ein Überblick. - 1. Das Meer und seine Entwicklung. - 2. Das Meer und Klima. - 3. Auswirkungen des Klimawandels auf die Meere. - 4. Das Meer: Ökonomische Aspekte. - 5. Was tun?., Die Meere bedecken fast drei Viertel der Erde. Mit ihren gewaltigen Wassermassen und Strömungen bestimmen sie maßgeblich in Wechselwirkung mit der Atmosphäre das Klima der Erde. Ohne die Meere wäre die Erdgeschichte ganz anders verlaufen. Selbst die wirtschaftliche Entwicklung Europas ist dem Wärmetransport des Nordatlantischen Strömungssystems zu verdanken. Seit Beginn der Industrialisierung verändert der Mensch durch den Verbrauch fossiler Energieträger die chemische Zusammensetzung der Atmosphäre und verstärkt damit den natürlichen Treibhauseffekt, was eine Erwärmung der unteren Atmosphäre und der Erdoberfläche einschließlich des oberen Ozeans zur Folge hat. Dies führt zur Schrumpfung der Fläche des arktischen Meereises, was die globale Erderwärmung weiter verstärkt, da sich die Erdalbedo verringert. Die Gletscher schmelzen. Das Schmelzwasser und die Ausdehnung des Meerwassers aufgrund der Erwärmung führen zum Meeresspiegelanstieg, der gefährliche Höhe erreichen wird, wenn Klimaschutz nicht konsequent betrieben wird. Fast ein Drittel der Weltbevölkerung lebt in Küstennähe und viele müssten in der Zukunft weichen, wenn die CO2-Emission nicht gemindert wird. Nicht nur große Teile der Niederlande, sondern auch weite Teile der deutschen Küste würden bei Stürmen unter Wasser geraten, wären da nicht die nach und nach zu Bollwerken mutierten Seedeiche und die Sperrwerke an den Flüssen. Ungleich gefährdeter sind da die Bewohner tropischer, von Wirbelstürmen heimgesuchter Küsten, die ohne Deich den Fluten ausgeliefert sind. Durch die Aufnahme des CO2 sinkt der pH-Wert des Meerwassers, was für viele Meeresorganismen - vor allem die Kalk bildenden Tiere - wie Korallen, Muscheln und viele Planktonalgen schädlich ist. Mit diesen und anderen Folgen für Pflanzen, Tiere und Menschen befassen sich rund 100 Experten im vorliegenden Buch. Die Beiträge sind leicht verständlich geschrieben.

Unterwegs – Mobiles Leben in der Erdgas- und Erdölindustrie in Russlands Arktis (2016)
Wien, Köln, Weimar : Böhlau
Keywords: Crude oil ; natural gas ; Russia ; Siberia ; Arctic ; long-distance commuting (LDC) ; fly-in/fly-out (FIFO) ; mobility ; normality ; multi-locality ; Erdöl ; Erdgas ; Russland ; Sibirien ; Arktis ; Fernpendleln ; Mobilität ; Normalität ; Multilokalität
Notes: Nahezu unbekannt sind der Öffentlichkeit die Lebensweisen jener ArbeiterInnen, die das „schwarze und blaue Gold“ für den Export nach Europa fördern. Sie sind fahrende und fliegende Menschen, die zyklisch für Wochen oder Monate in den Fördergebieten leben und arbeiten, um wieder für eine Weile zu ihren Familien heimzukehren. Das Buch führt kurzweilig von der Wolgaregion in das subarktische Sibirien. Die Autorin begleitet fernpendelnde Menschen über Tausende von Kilometern. Sie erzählt vom Leben in der sogenannten „Russischen Erdgashauptstadt“ Novy Urengoy, das sich zwischen Erinnerungen an die Sowjetunion und staatsnahen sowie neoliberalen Wirtschaftspraktiken abspielt. Diese faszinierende Ethnographie gibt einen kritischen Einblick in die russische Petroleumindustrie.

Technology and Innovation for Sustainable Development (2015)
London, UK : Bloomsbury Academic
Keywords: Nachhaltigkeit ; sustainable development
Notes: Continuation along current development pathways is not sustainable. Available technology and production practices and the consumption patterns of modern societies are leading to global warming and ecological destruction. Business as usual is not an option. There is an urgent need to find a new development paradigm that ensures environmental sustainability while managing to provide, now and in the future, a decent livelihood for all of humankind. In Technology and Innovation for Sustainable Development, experts in the area provide a variety of insights about the technical transformation needed for sustainable development. It spells out the behavioural and policy changes that would need to accompany the next technological transformation, taking into account the complexity of inducing technological change in the energy and agricultural sectors. The assessment suggests that this will require major, but doable improvements in national innovation systems and major, but affordable shifts in investment patterns and related macroeconomic adjustments.

Germany, Russia, and the Rise of Geo-Economics (2015)
London, UK : Bloomsbury Academic
Notes: Having emerged from the end of the Cold War as a unified country, Germany has quickly become the second largest exporter in the world. Its economic might has made it the center of the Eurozone and the pivotal power of Europe. Like other geo-economic powers, Germany's foreign policy is characterized by a definition of the national interest in economic terms and the elevation of economic interests over non-economic values such as human rights or democracy promotion. This strategic paradigm is evident in German's relationship with China, the Gulf States and Europe, but it is most important in regard to its evolving policies towards Russia. In this book, Stephen F. Szabo provides a description and analysis of German policy towards Russia, revealing how unified Germany is finding its global role in which its interests do not always coincide with the United States or its European partners. He explores the role of German business and finance in the shaping of foreign policy and investigates how Germany's Russia policy effects its broader foreign policy in the region and at how it is perceived by key outside players such as the United States, Poland and the EU. With reference to public, opinion, the media and think tanks Szabo reveals how Germans perceive Russians, and he uncovers the ways in which its dealings with Russia affect Germany in terms of the importing of corruption and crime. Drawing on interviews with key opinion-shapers, business and financial players and policy makers and on a wide variety of public opinion surveys, media reports and archival sources, his will be a key resource for all those wishing to understand the new geo-economic balance of Europe.
