Accretion of Extraterrestrial Matter Throughout Earth´s History

Every year Earth is bombarded with about 40,000 tons of extraterrestrial material. This includes microscopic cosmic dust particles shed by comets and asteroids in outer space, meteorites, as well as large comets and asteroids that have led to catastrophic events in the geologic past. Originally considered only a curiosity, extraterrestrial matter found on Earth provides the only samples we have from comets, asteroids and other planets. ...

Contaminant Geochemistry

This book combines earth science, subsurface hydrology and environmental geochemistry, providing a comprehensive background for specialists interested in the protection and sustainable management of the subsurface environment. The reader is introduced to the chemistry of contaminants, which usually disturb the natural equilibrium in the subsurface as a result of human activity. The major focus of the book is on contaminant reactions in soil ...

Maple for Environmental Sciences

This book presents a working understanding of mathematical structures within the context of Environmental Problems, loaded with examples, help, hints and reference material. It starts out with the basics that are followed by with simple research scenarios that are of direct use to the user. The subjects include Lake and Groundwater Hydrology, Bubble Identification, Turbulence Statistics, Physical Chemistry and Acid Rain, Statistics, and ...

Chronology and Evolution of Mars

This book results from a workshop at the International Space Science Institute (ISSI) in Bern, Switzerland, where geochemists, geophysicists, and photogeologists have combined their expertise to constrain the timescales and geological processes in the evolution of Mars. In order to achieve this goal, the ages of cratered lunar surfaces, which are dated precisely by the radiometric ages of returned samples, have been taken as a reference ...

geoENV I - Geostatistics for Environmental Applications

This book contains selected contributions from the geoENV96 - First European Conference on Geostatistics for Environmental Applications, held in Lisbon in November 1996. This is the first of a geoENV series of biennial planned books. The series is intended to show the state of the art of geostatistics in environmental applications with new cases, results and relevant discussions from leading researchers and practitioners around the ...
