This innovative study presents concepts and problems in soil physics, and provides solutions using original computer programs. It provides a close examination of physical environments of soil, including an analysis of the movement of heat, water and gases. The authors employ the programming language Python, which is now widely used for numerical problem solving in the sciences. In contrast to the majority of the literature on soil physics, this text focuses on solving, not deriving, differential equations for transport. Using numerical procedures to solve differential equations allows the solution of quite difficult problems with fairly simple mathematical tools. Numerical methods convert differential into algebraic equations, which can be solved using conventional methods of linear algebra. Each chapter introduces a soil physics concept, and proceeds to develop computer programs to solve the equations and illustrate the points made in the discussion. Problems at the end of each chapter help the reader practise using the concepts introduced. The text is suitable for advanced undergraduates, graduates and researchers of soil physics. It employs an open source philosophy where computer code is presented, explained and discussed, and provides the reader with a full understanding of the solutions. Once mastered, the code can be adapted and expanded for the user's own models, fostering further developments. The Python tools provide a simple syntax, Object Oriented Programming techniques, powerful mathematical and numerical tools, and a user friendly environment.

The classic reference for radar and remote sensing engineers, Handbook of Radar for Scattering Statistics for Terrain, has been reissued with updated, practical software for modern data analysis applications. First published in 1989, this update features a new preface, along with three new appendices that explain how to use the new software and graphical user interface. Python- and MATLAB-based software has been utilized so remote sensing and radar engineers can utilize the wealth of statistical data that came with the original book and software. This update combines the book and software, previously sold separately, into a single new product. The text first presents detailed examinations of the statistical behavior of speckle when superimposed on nonuniform terrain. The Handbook of Radar Scattering Statistics for Terrain then supports system design and signal processing applications with a complete database of calibrated backscattering coefficients. Compiled over 30 years, the statistical summaries of radar backscatter from terrain offers you over 400,000 data points compiled in tabular format. With this text, you'll own the most comprehensive database of radar terrain scattering statistics ever compiled. Derived from measurements made by both airborne and ground-based scatterometer systems, the database includes information from 114 references. The text provides over 60 tables of backscatter data for 9 different surface categories, all derived under strict quality criteria. Rigorous standards for calibration accuracy, measurement precision, and category identification make the database the most reliable source for scattering statistics ever available.

Abstract : The Probabilistic Infinite Slope Analysis model (PISA-m) is a widely used computer program that uses infinite slope equations to calculate the spatially varying Factor of Safety of slopes. ESRI's ArcGIS software and accompanying geoprocessing tools have become a mainstay in spatial data processing, and received full support for Python with the release of version 10. With many of the geoprocessing tools now available as a Python function, the software can be used for physics-based spatial landslide hazard analysis. A model that mimics PISA-m and its processing of normally distributed soil properties was created using the Python utility as a tool for ArcGIS. The newly created ArcGIS tool is referred as the GIS Tool for Infinite Slope Stability Analysis (GIS-TISSA). The tool was tested using the example data from PISA-m and case-study data from the district of Kannur, Kerala, India. The results from both areas highlight how different slope calculations can affect the overall calculation of the Factor of Safety, as well as the new model's ability to accurately predict Factor of Safety of slopes in an area.

The Stanford Geostatistical Modeling Software (SGeMS) is an open-source computer package for solving problems involving spatially related variables. It provides geostatistics practitioners with a user-friendly interface, an interactive 3-D visualization, and a wide selection of algorithms. This practical book provides a step-by-step guide to using SGeMS algorithms. It explains the underlying theory, demonstrates their implementation, discusses their potential limitations, and helps the user make an informed decision about the choice of one algorithm over another. Users can complete complex tasks using the embedded scripting language, and new algorithms can be developed and integrated through the SGeMS plug-in mechanism. SGeMS was the first software to provide algorithms for multiple-point statistics, and the book presents a discussion of the corresponding theory and applications. Incorporating the full SGeMS software (now available from www.cambridge.org/9781107403246), this book is a useful user-guide for Earth Science graduates and researchers, as well as practitioners of environmental mining and petroleum engineering.
