     Neutral Buoyancy: Adventures in a Liquid World
Publisher: Grove Press
Author(s): Tim Ecott

In Neutral Buoyancy, journalist and diver Tim Ecott takes you on a guided tour of the history of undersea exploration and the emergence of diving culture. He tells the extraordinary story of man's attempts to breathe underwater, from the sponge divers described by Aristotle, to the development of sixteenth-century diving bells, to the invention of modern scuba equipment. Along the way, Ecott intersperses the story with his own thrilling adventures, from the waters of the South Pacific to the remote islands of the Seychelles, from explorations in the clear, flowing tides of Sardinia to a near-death experience in the cold gray depths of the English Channel. Filled with engaging stories of humanity's conquest of the undersea world -- and heart-pounding action that will leave you breathless -- Neutral Buoyancy is a compelling blend of history and adventure, an exciting overview of the world of undersea diving. "As elemental, entertaining, and stimulating as the environment it traces." -- Kirkus Reviews "Engaging ... Neutral Buoyancy will certainly become cult reading for divers." -- Alexander Urquhart, The Times Literary Supplement "Ecott's encyclopedic recounting of diving history ... should be awarded a place on any diver's reference shelf." -- Paul McHugh, San Francisco Chronicle

     Jumpstart the Divemaster In You: Tips For Buoyancy Control And More (A scuba-diving-smiles.com New Diver Series)
Publisher:
Author(s): Dianne Rein

About The Series: ?Jumpstart the Divemaster in You?



This series of 7 booklets (or 2 value priced boxed sets) is aimed at the new scuba diver or the diver that has been away from the sport for an extended period of time and needs a refresher. Each booklet is full of practical and easy to follow tips that are designed to improve specific dive skills, increase the divers confidence and allow the diver to get the most out of his/her diving.

Each booklet is written in plain English and is not simply a rehash of what was taught in your scuba certification course. Instead, these scuba lessons are the 100% practical real life side of diving. The author relates many real life stories throughout all the booklets and tells what she has observed and learned during her diving career. Her conversational way of writing makes it easy to learn from her experiences - and her mistakes. It's like having a down-to-earth friend give pointers, answer questions and offer advice that you can easily relate to because the author has been in your position.

About The Booklet: Jumpstart the Divemaster in You ? Tips For Buoyancy Control And More



(37 printed pages; 15,136 words)

We all know that nothing can take the pleasure out of a dive like poor buoyancy control. It is probably one of the hardest dive skills to master when you learn to scuba dive ? but also one of the most rewarding. Once you have your buoyancy under control you will have a whole different feeling to your diving. No more elevator rides - you will just float along effortlessly.

In the author?s quest for perfect buoyancy control, she discovered that there were some easy tips and techniques she used to speed her way to neutral buoyancy. She is sharing those strategies here. Use her experience - and not your air - to end the ups and downs once and for all.

In the first part of this dive training handbook you will discover:

?the #1 reason why most divers have trouble getting neutrally buoyant - and what to do to correct it
?a critical step you must take while you are adjusting your buoyancy underwater - it makes a HUGE difference
?the most efficient way of determining the proper amount of weight you should wear
?easy tricks for correctly preparing your BC for descent
?diving exercises to practice your buoyancy control

In Part #2 of this scuba guide you will find all the tips you need for having safe descents and ascents - two aspects of a dive that may seem deceptively simple. However, there are some things you need to consider before you even start to descend and work on your buoyancy control. This section also covers all the info you need to know to get to the surface safely - one of the most important periods of any dive.

Part #3 gives tips and strategies for keeping warm. As you get closer to neutral buoyancy, you may find yourself a bit cooler on dives as you are not exerting as much energy trying to get your buoyancy under control.

And, last but not least, a bonus section with a scuba lesson on dive etiquette is included in all the "Jumpstart" booklets - so you will never be one of those divers that gets the dirty look from other divers. (Booklet total: 15,136 words)

About The Author:

Dianne Rein is an avid scuba diver and traveler. Her love affair with diving has continued unabated since she was certified in 1994. Although it was a bit of a rocky start since she felt like she was on an elevator ride when she was learning how to dive. Once she got her buoyancy under control ? all was good with the underwater world.

When she isn't busy planning her next adventure, she can be found doing hands-on research for her website scuba-diving-smiles.com.

     Buoyancy Effects in Fluids (Cambridge Monographs on Mechanics)
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Author(s): J. S. Turner

The phenomena treated in this book all depend on the action of gravity on small density differences in a non-rotating fluid. The author gives a connected account of the various motions which can be driven or influenced by buoyancy forces in a stratified fluid, including internal waves, turbulent shear flows and buoyant convection. This excellent introduction to a rapidly developing field, first published in 1973, can be used as the basis of graduate courses in university departments of meteorology, oceanography and various branches of engineering. This edition is reprinted with corrections, and extra references have been added to allow readers to bring themselves up to date on specific topics. Professor Turner is a physicist with a special interest in laboratory modelling of small-scale geophysical processes. An important feature is the superb illustration of the text with many fine photographs of laboratory experiments and natural phenomena.

     Buoyancy on the Bayou: Shrimpers Face the Rising Tide of Globalization
Publisher: ILR Press
Author(s): Jill Ann Harrison

Over the past several decades, shrimp has transformed from a luxury food to a kitchen staple. While shrimp-loving consumers have benefited from the lower cost of shrimp, domestic shrimp fishers have suffered, particularly in Louisiana. Most of the shrimp that we eat today is imported from shrimp farms in China, Vietnam, and Thailand. The flood of imported shrimp has sent dockside prices plummeting, and rising fuel costs have destroyed the profit margin for shrimp fishing as a domestic industry.

In Buoyancy on the Bayou, Jill Ann Harrison portrays the struggles that Louisiana shrimp fishers endure to remain afloat in an industry beset by globalization. Her in-depth interviews with more than fifty individuals working in or associated with shrimp fishing in a small town in Louisiana offer a portrait of shrimp fishers' lives just before the BP oil spill in 2010, which helps us better understand what has happened since the Deepwater Horizon disaster.

Harrison shows that shrimp fishers go through a careful calculation of noneconomic costs and benefits as they grapple to figure out what their next move will be. Many willingly forgo opportunities in other industries to fulfill what they perceive as their cultural calling. Others reluctantly leave fishing behind for more lucrative work, but they mourn the loss of a livelihood upon which community and family structures are built. In this gripping account of the struggle to survive amid the waves of globalization, Harrison focuses her analysis at the intersection of livelihood, family, and community and casts a bright light upon the cultural importance of the work that we do.

     Buoyancy-Driven Flows
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Author(s):

Buoyancy is one of the main forces driving flows on our planet, especially in the oceans and atmosphere. These flows range from buoyant coastal currents to dense overflows in the ocean, and from avalanches to volcanic pyroclastic flows on the Earth's surface. This book brings together contributions by leading world scientists to summarize our present theoretical, observational, experimental, and modeling understanding of buoyancy-driven flows. Buoyancy-driven currents play a key role in the global ocean circulation and in climate variability through their impact on deep-water formation. Buoyancy-driven currents are also primarily responsible for the redistribution of fresh water throughout the world's oceans. This book is an invaluable resource for advanced students and researchers in oceanography, geophysical fluid dynamics, atmospheric science, and the wider Earth sciences who need a state-of-the-art reference on buoyancy-driven flows.

     Multidisciplinary Design Approach and Safety Analysis of ADSR Cooled by Buoyancy Driven Flows (Stand Alone Dup)
Publisher: IOS Press
Author(s): Carlos Alberto Ceballos Castillo

The energy consumption in the world is directly related to the economical growth. The International Energy Agency estimates a doubling increase of electricity demands in the next 25 years (Energy Outlook, 2004). Somehow, this growth must be satisfied without destroying the ecological equilibrium of our planet. For this reason, all sorts of energy resources, which are potential pollutants for the environment are being investigated, and their technologies improved, plus new renewable energies are developed. It is also evident that renewables will take several decades before they are able to substitute the present capacity and even more, to cope with the future energy demands. Nuclear energy is an air pollution free technology with the potential to satisfy the world's energy demands for many centuries. However, some concerns about the use of nuclear energy have to be further developed in order to recognize nuclear energy as a sustainable option. This book deals with concerns such as the use of nuclear energy for weapons, the risk of accidents with radioactivity release and the waste management.
