Nonlinear Dynamics in Geosciences is made from the complaints of "20 Years of Nonlinear Dynamics in Geosciences', held June 11-16, 2006 in Rhodes, Greece as a part of the Aegean meetings. the quantity brings jointly the main up to date examine from the atmospheric sciences, hydrology, geology, and different components of geosciences, and discusses the advances made within the final twenty years and the long run instructions of nonlinear dynamics. issues coated comprise predictability, ensemble prediction, nonlinear prediction, nonlinear time sequence research, low-dimensional chaos, nonlinear modeling, fractals and multifractals, bifurcation, complicated networks, self-organized criticality, severe occasions, and different elements of nonlinear technological know-how.
