  • The Salt Marshes of Cornwall (the environment of the Camel, Fal, Gannel and Hayle)

    Cornwall is a land defined by it's coastline and the mining industry that supported it's people for so long. As such, the estuaries of Cornwall have become highly contaminated, resulting in an ecology specialised to metal enriched environments. In this edition, we look at the environment of the Camel, Fal, Gannel and Hayle estuaries, focussing on ...

  • Role of GIS in Lifting the Cloud Off Chernobyl

    The 15th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster offered a timely opportunity for an expert assessment of the current situation and suggestions for approaches to managing the information associated with the site and surrounding contaminated territories. The great quantity of data coming from the contaminated region was and is ...

  • Applied Hydrogeology of Fractured Rocks

    Hydrogeology is a topical and growing subject as the earth's water resources become scarcer and more vulnerable. More than half of the surface area of continents is covered with hard rocks of low permiability.This book deals comprehensively with the fundamental principles for understanding the hydrogeological characteristics of rocks, as well as ...
