analyzing sediment Books

  • Geological Deformation of Sediments

    This book covers the theoretical principles, their application and results in all the geological environments where sediment deformation is now known to be important. It explains the basic ideas for a newcomer, but develops concepts and provides numerous up-to-date literature references for the advanced specialist. The emphasis is on ...

  • Earth Surface Processes, Landforms and Sediment Deposits

    This unique textbook brings together the traditional disciplines of sedimentology and geomorphology to explain Earth surface processes, landforms and sediment deposits in a comprehensive and integrated way. It is the ideal resource for a two-semester course in sedimentology, stratigraphy, geomorphology, and Earth surface processes from the ...

  • Halophilic Microorganisms

    Various groups of microorganisms - bacteria, archaea, algae and even fungi - have adapted to a life in a hypersaline environment. Halophilic Microorganisms explores the many-fold aspects of life under these extreme conditions. Several contributions analyze the microbial communities in different hypersaline environments such as salterns, soda ...

  • Geologic Modeling and Simulation

    Modeling and simulation were introduced to the earth sciences about four decades ago. Modeling has proven its worth and now it is an accepted procedure for analyzing and solving geological problems. The papers in this collection are focused on modeling sediment deposition and sedimentary sequences and have a decidedly practical flavor. Some ...

  • Meiobenthology

    Meiobenthology is the science of the tiny animals that live in huge numbers in all aquatic sediments. This fully revised and enlarged second edition emphasizes new discoveries and developments in this field. Major progress has been made in three general areas: - Systematics, diversity and distribution, - Ecology, food webs, and energy flow, - ...

  • Natural Attenuation of Trace Element Availability in Soils

    Understanding attenuation processes can be applied not only to predicting the behavior of contaminants in soil and formulating remediation strategies, but also for mitigating and enhancing the availability of micronutrients in soil for agricultural applications. Natural Attenuation of Trace Element Availability in Soils brings together pioneering ...

  • Biogeochemistry of Wetlands: Science and Applications

    Wetland ecosystems maintain a fragile balance of soil, water, plant, and atmospheric components in order to regulate water flow, flooding, and water quality. Marginally covered in traditional texts on biogeochemistry or on wetland soils, Biogeochemistry of Wetlands is the first to focus entirely on the biological, geological, physical, and ...

  • Multiple Stressor Effects in Relation to Declining Amphibian Population

    Original research discusses the protocols and approaches to studying the effects of multiple environmental stressors on amphibian populations and gives new perspectives on this complicated subject. This new publication integrates a variety of stressors that can act in concert and may ultimately cause a decline in amphibian populations. Sixteen ...

  • Restoration and Recovery of Shallow Eutrophic Lake Ecosystems in the Netherlands

    This book contains the proceedings of a two-day symposium held in Amsterdam (18 and 19 April 1991). There are 26 scientific papers divided into three parts. Part One presents the results of a ten-year study carried out by the multi-disciplinary WQL working group (Water Quality research Loosdrecht lakes) on the Loosdrecht lakes. The central ...
