Tigers, Rice, Silk, and Silt: Environment and Economy in Late Imperial South China by Robert Marks
English | 28 Feb. 1998 | ISBN: 0521591775 | 408 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

Challenging the conventional wisdom conveyed by Western environmental historians about China, this book examines the correlations between economic and environmental changes in the southern Chinese provinces of Guangdong and Guangxi from 1400 to 1850, but also provides substantial background from 2CE on.

Confucianism: An Introduction (repost)

Confucianism: An Introduction by Ronnie Littlejohn
English | 2011 | ISBN: 184885174X, 1848851731 | 240 pages | PDF | 3,4 MB

It is arguably Confucianism, not Communism, which lies at the core of China's deepest sense of self. Although reviled by Chinese intellectuals of the 1950s-1990s, who spoke of it as "yellow silt clotting the arteries of the country," Confucianism has defied eradication, remaining a fundamental part of the nation's soul for 2500 years.

Deep-sea documentaries often turn out to be disappointing TV spectacles, a mixture of silt, flashing lights and, occasionally, something slippery finning into the shadows. This, though, is pin-sharp, an expertly shot portrait of the weird twilight habitat found 120m beneath the South African waves. The footage is gorgeous; the science is even more intriguing. A team of extreme divers is searching for an ancient creature called a coelacanth (pronounced “see-low-canth”), said to be the missing link in the chain of evolution that led from the sea to dry land, fish to mammals and, 380 million years later, us. There’s something charmingly benign about this creature that time forgot, with its lips gnarled like a disgruntled sea captain and its stubby fins – the precursor to limbs – rowing aimlessly through the water. The story of the `living fossil' of 1938, when the impossible occurred off the South African coast and a fish believed to have been extinct since the dinosaur age was found.

Land Subsidence Analysis in Urban Areas: The Bangkok Metropolitan Area Case Study by David G. Zeitoun and Eliyahu Wakshal

Cities built on unconsolidated sediments consisting of clays, silt, peat, and sand, are particularly susceptible to subsidence. Such regions are common in delta areas, where rivers empty into the oceans, along flood plains adjacent to rivers, and in coastal marsh lands. Building cities in such areas aggravates the problem for several reasons:

Eighty five miles south of Kuwait City lies a near-barren landscape of sand and silt baking in some of the hottest temperatures on the planet. Little lives or grows here, and few people have ever chosen to live here. Until now. Sea City showcases the engineering marvel that is transforming the Kuwait coastline. The completed project will house 100,000 people and provide beach side living in harmony with the environment. This documentary follows the team on the ground as they race to beat critical deadlines while the temperature rises to the extremes of mid-summer. There are bridges to finish, water gates to be built and installed, millions of cubic metres of dynamic compaction to be done – literally smashing the ground flat enough to bear the weight of buildings on it - and mangrove plants to nurture at the limit of their possible cultivation. All this before lagoons can be flooded and while the first families are already moving into their new homes. It is not just about the big machines – it is about a passionate team who are struggling to realise a dream, a dream of bringing dead land to life and creating a ‘sea-city’ in the middle of the desert.

It is arguably Confucianism, not Communism, which lies at the core of China's deepest sense of self. Although reviled by Chinese intellectuals of the 1950s-1990s, who spoke of it as "yellow silt clotting the arteries of the country," Confucianism has defied eradication, remaining a fundamental part of the nation's soul for 2500 years. And now, as China assumes greater ascendancy on the world economic stage, it is making a strong comeback as a pragmatic philosophy of personal as well as corporate transformation, popular in both home and boardroom.

Much of the world's surface, even under the oceans, is covered in thick deposits of sedimentary particles - gravel, sand, silt and clay. The nature of the deposits and their formation is very much dependent on the distribution of particles of different sizes. However, different instruments measure different attributes of a particle's size, based on how fast a particle settles in water, or the surface area of a particle, or its length. This book provides information on the how and why of particle size analysis in terms of understanding these sediment deposits.
