  • 25 søforklaringer Spar 22%
    - Naturvidenskabelige fortællinger fra Søauditorierne
     

    100.000 mennesker har over de seneste ti år set en af de åbne naturvidenskabelige forelæsninger i Søauditorierne på Aarhus Universitet, hvor topforskere har præsenteret ny viden. 25 højdepunkter er nu samlet i denne bog. Ligesom foredragene er artiklerne formidlet, så alle kan være med. Et rigt illustrationsmateriale er med til at levere ny viden om alt fra kvantemekanik og universets udvikling til netværksteori og myrer. Ole Mouritsen fra Syddansk Universitet beretter fx fra forskningens frontlinje om den helt nye "gastrofysik", der har klarlagt den molekylære mekanisme bag velsmag - dvs. forskellige stoffers evne til smagsmæssigt at forstærke hinanden. Professor Klaus Mølmer fra Aarhus Universitet fremlægger de store perspektiver i fremtidens kvantecomputer. Jens Christian Svenning viser, hvordan dyrelivet i dag over hele kloden er stærkt påvirket af istiden for 10.000 år siden. Hvert af disse emner trak 2000 interesserede tilhørere. Foredragene fortsætter, men nu er 25 fastholdt i en bog - til inspiration for kommende studerende, til undervisning i gymnasiet, til de mange tilhørere, der gerne vil have repeteret historien - eller bare til indsigt i vores fantastiske fysiske verden.

  • Jordens klima af Jens Koch Spar 21%
    - og de problemer vi står overfor
    af Jens Koch

    Bogen omhandler de mange faktorer, der har indflydelse på jordens klima, både i fortiden og nu. Den tager udgangspunkt i de ændringer af klimaet, der historisk har været igennem tiderne, lige fra da dinosaurerne levede på jorden, til vikingerne befolkede Grønland, svenskerne gik over bælterne og til den sidste lille istid, der fik Themsen til at fryse til. De menneskeskabte indvirkninger på klimaet bliver sat i relief til de naturlige årsager. Bogen er skrevet for at give læseren et indblik i, at der er mange andre årsager til en kommende klimaændring end den stående debat om CO2-indvirkningen på klimaet. Dette for at skabe en basal viden, således at der kan komme en mere nuanceret tilgang til de alvorlige fremtidsudsigter, vi mennesker har på vores planet. Uddrag af bogen Der er, som beskrevet i de foregående afsnit, mange muligheder, som vi ikke kan gardere os imod, og uanset hvad vi gør, så vil der komme klimaændringer, vi ikke kan gøre noget ved. Det kan skyldes f.eks. kraftige vulkanudbrud, solens ændring af udstråling, jordens ændrede bane om solen og naturligvis nedslag fra en kraftig meteor. Desuden har vi de menneskeskabte ændringer. Dette emne er der debat om inden for videnskaben, og den fylder meget i det offentlige rum. En liste over mulige menneskeskabte årsager: CO2 – øget mængde i atmosfæren Udledning af gasser fra dyrehold Skovfældning, ændrede økoområder Enorme bebyggelser – byer Befolkningstilvækst Om forfatteren Forfatteren Jens Koch er uddannet elektroingeniør. Han har arbejdet indenfor IT, dels som tekniker, men også som underviser af fagfolk. Han har hele livet været interesseret i astrofysik, herunder bl.a. jordens klimahistorie, og det har givet ham lyst til at skrive denne bog, da der efter hans mening mangler generel oplysning om emnet.
