This is a book about knowing God. It is for those for whom just believing (or not believing) is no longer enough. Through personal experience, anecdote and story, a priest shares an ancient, but neglected aspect of Christian prayer. Contemplation takes us into the depths of the present moment, the only reality there has ever been and so the only place where God can be found. It takes us at different times into mystical oneness with the All, into profound self-knowledge and reveals love in the midst of the world.

Everyone knows ponds are beautiful to look at. But most people don’t realize how beneficial they are—enhancing your well-being, cleansing and controlling the environment, humidifying dry air, and removing airborne pollutants. This focus on the healthful and spiritual advantages of both indoor and outdoor water-features is what makes this pond building guide so unique. Of course, it delves into all the construction basics with a stunning variety of lavish images, and explains how to stock the pond with fish, select plants, and install atmospheric lighting. But it also includes delightful personal stories from the author that illustrate the power of water, thought-provoking quotations and parables, and scientific analyses of exactly how water neutralizes negative effects on our body and mind.

In 1979, several graduate students in the Department of Fisheries and Allied Aquacultures at Auburn University met with one of the authors (CEB) and asked him to teach a new course on water supply for aqua culture. They felt that information on climatology, hydrology, water distribution systems, pumps, and wells would be valuable to them. Most of these students were planning to work in commercial aquaculture in the United States or abroad, and they thought that such a cdurse would better prepare them to plan aquaculture projects and to communicate with engineers, contractors, and other specialists who often become involved in the planning and construction phases of aquaculture en deavors. The course was developed, and after a few years it was decided that more effective presentation of some of the material could be made by an engineer. The other author (KHY) accepted the challenge, and three courses on the water supply aspects of aquaculture are now offered at Auburn University. A course providing background in hydrology is followed by courses on selected topics from water supply engineering. Most graduate programs in aquaculture at other universities will even tually include similar coursework, because students need a formal intro duction to this important, yet somewhat neglected, part of aquaculture. We have written this book to serve as a text for a course in water supply for aquaculture or for individual study. The book is divided into is concerned two parts.

Aquaculture pond managers measure water-quality variables and attempt to maintain them within optimal ranges for shrimp and fish, but surprisingly little attention is paid to pond soil condition. Soil-water interactions can strongly impact water quality, and soil factors should be considered in aquaculture pond management. The importance of soils in pond management will be illustrated with an example from pond fertilization and another from aeration. Pond fertilization may not produce phytoplankton blooms in acidic ponds. Total alkalinity is too low to provide adequate carbon dioxide for photosynthesis, and acidic soils adsorb phosphate added in fertilizer before phytoplankton can use it. Agricultural lime stone application can raise total alkalinity and neutralize soil acidity. The amount of limestone necessary to cause these changes in a pond depends on the base unsaturation and exchange acidity of the bottom soil. Two ponds with the same total alkalinity and soil pH may require vastly different quantities of limestone because they differ in exchange acidity. Aeration enhances dissolved oxygen concentrations in pond water and permits greater feed inputs to enhance fish or shrimp production. As feeding rates are raised, organic matter accumulates in pond soils. In ponds with very high feeding rates, aeration may supply enough dissolved oxygen in the water column for fish or shrimp, but it may be impossible to maintain aerobic conditions in the surface layers of pond soil. Toxic metabolites produced by microorganisms in anaerobic soils may enter the pond water and harm fish or shrimp.

Freshwater Fish Pond Culture and Management is a how-to-manual. It is designed as a working and teaching tool for extension agents. It is for their use as they establish and /or maintain local fish pond operations. The information is presented here to 1) facilitate technology transfer and 2) provide a clear guide for warm water fish pond construction and management. A valuable listing for resources at the end of this manual will give further direction to those wishing more information on various aspects of fish pond operation.

Hydraulic Engineering contains 56 technical papers from the 2012 SREE Conference on Hydraulic Engineering (CHE 2012, Hong Kong, 21-22 December 2012, including the second SREE Workshop on Environment and Safety, WESE 2012). The conference served as a major forum for researchers, engineers and manufacturers to share recent advances, discuss problems, and identify challenges associated with engineering applications in hydraulic engineering, and the contributions showcase recent developments in the areas of hydraulic engineering and environmental engineering. The sections on hydraulic engineering mainly focus on flood prediction and control, hydropower design and construction technology, water and environment, comprehensive water treatment, and urban water supply and drainage, while the contributions related to environmental issues focus on environmental prediction and control techniques in environmental geoscience, environmental ecology, atmospheric sciences, ocean engineering, safety engineering and environmental pollution control. Hydraulic Engineering will be invaluable to academics and professionals in both hydraulic and environmental engineering.

The culmination of over a decade's worth of research by the Pond Dynamics/Aquaculture Collaborative Research Support Program (CRSP), Dynamics of Pond Aquaculture not only explains the physical, chemical, and biological processes that interact in pond culture systems, but also presents real-world research findings and considers the people who depend on these systems. This book uses data from CRSP field research sites in East Africa, Southeast Asia, Central America, and North America to present a complete picture of the pond system and the environment in which it exists. A thorough study of the principles and practices of aquaculture, the book reflects the state of the art in pond aquaculture and incorporates recent advances that have changed the science in the last decade or so. It provides a thorough review of the many methods, techniques, and ideas that comprise this complex and fascinating area of study.
