  • Sealing of Boreholes and Underground Excavations in Rock

    This reference presents the state-of-the-art in experimental research, data analysis and engineering applications of the sealing of boreholes. Some aspects are generalized to address the sealing of underground openings in rock, and the book summarizes the mechanical and hydraulic performance of borehole seals. ...

  • Well Logging for Earth Scientists

    Well logging lies at the intersection of applied geophysics, petroleum and geotechnical engineering. It has its roots in the tentative electrical measurements in well bores which were made by the Schlumberger brothers some 80 years ago in the earliest days of systematic petroleum exploration. Today, a variety of specialized instruments is used to ...

  • Geoenvironmental Mapping: Methods,Theory and Practice

    The purpose of this text is to illustrate the wide variety of geoscience mapping that is presently undertaken around the world. To meet this goal, contributions from specialists in several countries were solicited to cover a number of subdisciplinary and thematic topics collectively called Geoenvironmental Mapping. Included in this compilation are ...

  • Geomechanics and Fluidodynamics

    This monograph is based on subsurface hydrodynamics and applied geomechanics and puts it in a unifying framework. It focuses on the understanding of physical and mechanical properties of geomaterials by presenting mathematical models of deformation and fracture with related experiments. Borehole stability and water, gas and oil reservoir ...

  • The Polish Climate in the European Context: An Historical Overview

    Reconstruction of the climate variability of the past 500 years is a topic of great scientific interest not only in global terms, but also at regional and local levels. This period is interesting on account of the increasing influence of anthropogenic forcing and its overlap with natural factors. The Polish Climate in the European Context: An ...

  • Rock Damage and Fluid Transport, Part II

    Mechanical properties and fluid transport in rocks are intimately linked as deformation of a solid rock matrix immediately affects the pore space and permeability. The coupling of fluid circulation and deformation processes in crustal rocks results in significant complexity of the mechanical and fluid transport behavior. This often poses severe ...

  • Stress Field of the Earth´s Crust

    This book about rock stress is suitable for students in geosciences and engineering, who need to broaden their horizon about the Stress Field of the Earth´s Crust. The book covers the topic in a way such that geoscience students will be able to grasp the Cauchy Stress Principle without fear of matrix transformations in an exercise. Students ...

  • Continental Evolution: The Geology of Morocco

    Morocco is one of the most fascinating lands in the world from the point of view of its geological structure and evolution. Our knowledge on the geology of the country has been greatly improved during the last decades, based on numerous seismic profiles and boreholes, seismological analysis of focal mechanisms, seismic tomography, ...

  • GEMS Environment Library No. 15: Groundwater a Threatened Resource

    This publication is intended to explain to readers how important groundwater is, the extent of the threat to it, and the actions that can be taken to protect it.The world's water is one of our most precious resources. Lack of water is one of the principal causes of delayed development. Polluted water is one of the biggest killers we know, ...
