Details zum Produkt: Helvetische Meliorationen

Mit kulturtechnischen Eingriffen sind die Landschaften Europas in der Moderne völlig umgestaltet worden. Am Beispiel eines frühen Wasserbaus bestimmt der Autor die soziotechnischen Bedingungen dieses tief greifenden Wandels. Dabei dient der Begriff der 'helvetischen Meliorationen' als Klammer, um Fragen der Umweltgeschichte mit der Gesellschaftsgeschichte und der politischen Geschichte zu verbinden. Gegenstand der Untersuchung ist die Begradigung der Linth, die seit 1783 zur Debatte stand und während der Mediationszeit in Angriff genommen wurde. In diesem hydrotechnischen Projekt materialisierte sich die gesellschaftstragende Utopie des anbrechenden bürgerlichen Zeitalters auf exemplarische Weise. 'Die weite, vier Stunden lange Thalebene ist zur Kultur und allgemeinen Verbesserung fähig gemacht', hielt der Protagonist des Projekts, der revolutionäre Zürcher Politiker, Geologe und Philanthrop Hans Konrad Escher, 1811 euphorisch fest. Die Kulturarbeit beschränkte sich nicht auf die Trockenlegung von Sümpfen oder die Begradigung wilder Bergbäche. Sie schloss auch die disziplinierende Erziehung der lokalen Bevölkerung ein, und sie zielte auf eine liberale Staatskonstruktion, die nach dem Scheitern der Helvetischen Republik von unten aufgebaut werden sollte - gewissermassen aus dem Sumpf des Ancien R

An Introduction to Money Laundering Deterrence Cox, D: Introduction to Money Laundering Deterrence
Every criminal act anywhere that involves obtaining money illegally produces funds which need to be laundered. The IMF estimates that 2-5% of global GDP ($590bn and $1.5 trillion) is laundered every year - $590bn is the equivalent of Spain's yearly output. Globally, regulations have come in which affect certain businesses, especially banks and other financial institutions. These businesses have been required to put in place specific arrangements to prevent and detect money laundering and the criminal activity that underlies it. As money launderers have resorted to more sophisticated ways of disguising the source of their funds, so employees have to be ever more aware of what they are dealing with, and how to deal with it. * At present books on money laundering deterrence tend to focus on the detailed regulations and therefore do not provide much in the form of practical advice and guidance. The books also tend to look at money laundering regulation from a single perspective - say that of the UK. * Legislation requires firms to provide all relevant employees with adequate training on that legislation, and to recognise and deal appropriately with transactions where money laundering is suspected. * This book will look at a series of types of money laundering, explain how they are used and what controls, if any, could be used by an institution to protect itself. * What should make a banker suspicious, how would suspicion appear to a court or regulator, and what will the impact be on controls and reputational risk.

Time Series Analysis in Meteorology and Climatology Duchon, C: Time Series Analysis in Meteorology
Time Series Analysis in Meteorology and Climatology provides an accessible overview of this notoriously difficult subject. Clearly structured throughout, the authors develop sufficient theoretical foundation to understand the basis for applying various analytical methods to a time series and show clearly how to interpret the results. Taking a unique approach to the subject, the authors use a combination of theory and application to real data sets to enhance student understanding throughout the book. This book is written for those students that have a data set in the form of a time series and are confronted with the problem of how to analyse this data. Each chapter covers the various methods that can be used to carry out this analysis with coverage of the necessary theory and its application. In the theoretical section topics covered include; the mathematical origin of spectrum windows, leakage of variance and understanding spectrum windows. The applications section includes real data sets for students to analyse. Scalar variables are used for ease of understanding for example air temperatures, wind speed and precipitation. Students are encouraged to write their own computer programmes and data sets are provided to enable them to recognize quickly whether their programme is working correctly- one data set is provided with artificial data and the other with real data where the students are required to physically interpret the results of their periodgram analysis. Based on the acclaimed and long standing course at the University of Oklahoma, the book is distinct in its approach to the subject matter in that it is written specifically for readers in meteorology and climatology and uses a mix of theory and application to real data sets.
