  • The Deep Universe

    This book provides a first-hand account of modern cosmology, written by three celebrated astronomers renowned for their excellence in both research and teaching. The central theme of the book, the deep Universe, is approached in three truly complementary ways: as a coherent and smooth theory embracing the evolution of the Universe from its ...

  • Behavior of Deep Foundations

    The symposium on Behavior of Deep Foundations was held during the June Committee Week of the American Society for Testing and Materials, 25-30 June 1978, in Boston, Mass. ASTM Committee D18 on Soil and Rock for Engineering Purposes sponsored the symposium. The symposium Committee members were: Raymond Lundgren, Roy Bell, R. D. Darragh, M. I. ...

  • The Deep Hot Biosphere

    Suppose someone claimed that we are not running out of petroleum? Or that life on Earth began below the surface of our planet? Or that oil and gas are not 'fossil fuels'? Or that if we find extraterrestrial life it is likely to be within, not on, other planets? You might expect to hear statements like these from an author of science fiction. But ...

  • Deep Electromagnetic Exploration

    Electromagnetic waves and their role in probing the earth are important for the exploration of the earth's deep crust. This book is not only for scientists in geophysics a useful source of information, but also for professionals in oil and gas exploration, geophysicists and engineers ...

  • Materials Performance and the Deep Sea

    The Symposium on Materials Performance and the Deep Sea was presented during the Seventy-first Annual Meeting of the Society held in San Francisco, Calif., 23—29 June 1968. The symposium was sponsored by Committees G01 on Corrosion of Metals and G03 on Deterioration of Nonmetallic Materials in cooperation with the Marine Technology Society, ...

  • Deep-water Coral Reefs

    Deep-water coral reefs are found along large sections of the outer continental shelves and slopes of Europe, from North Cape to the Gulf of Cadiz, and because they also occur along the Atlantic seaboard of USA, the Gulf of Mexico, off Brazil, in the Mediterranean, and off New Zealand, they are currently being targeted by international groups of ...

  • Deep Structure of the Swiss Alps

    The novel tectonic model of the deep crustal structure of the Alpine collision zone is the result of an integration of seismic reflection and refraction data and structural data. Besides data gathered from the crust/mantle boundary, significant new insight was gained from the shallower structures. This includes 3D, subsurface mapping of Alpine ...

  • Seismic Exploration of the Deep Continental Crust

    DEKORP, the German continental reflection seismic program, was the major focus of deep seismic research in Germany in the 1980s and 1990s. The seismic sections provided fundamental new insight into deep geological structure of the European continent and the dynamics of continental formation. They formed the basis for worldwide comparative studies ...

  • Island, Ocean and Deep-Sea Biology

    The 34th European Marine Biology Symposium was held in Ponta Delgada, The Azores, between 13th and 17th September 1999. It was organised by the University of the Azores in association with the Municipal Museum of Funchal (Madeira), and the Plymouth Environment Research Centre (University of Plymouth, UK). The selected topics, dictated by the ...

  • Ecosystems and biodiversity in deep waters and high seas

    This report reveals recent discoveries about the beauty, value and vulnerability of life in the deep seas and in the open ocean. It explores what these astonishing findings mean for current oceans governance, what the impacts are of present and potential human activities, and what can be done to promote effective and sustainable management of the ...

  • Deep Foundation Improvements: Design, Construction, and Testing

    22 peer-reviewed papers focus on deep foundation improvements through the formation of composite ground, and those related to improvement through compaction and densification. Areas covered include: • Construction and analysis of composite ground • Construction guidelines and specifications • Case history presentations • ...

  • Laterally Loaded Deep Foundations: Analysis and Performance

    Contains information on recent advances in the analysis, design, and performance of laterally loaded piles. Includes the results of field tests on piles subjected to various conditions. Also discusses methods to determine appropriate soil ...

  • Electrical Methods in Geophysical Exploration of Deep Sedimentary Basins

    This book provides a broad introduction to electrical methods, with particular emphasis on concepts, methods, exploration strategy and interpretation. The book is designed to be used by non-specialists, and complex mathematical derivations and details of rapidly changing subjects such as instrumentation and data processing are deliberately ...

  • Deep-Sea Food Chains and the Global Carbon Cycle

    Carbon dioxide and other 'greenhouse' gases are increasing in the atmosphere due to the burning of fossil fuels, the destruction of rain forests, etc., leading to predictions of a gradual global warming which will perturb the global biosphere. An important process which counters this trend toward potential climate change is the removal of ...

  • Deep Trouble: The Hidden Threat of Groundwater Pollution

    A Global Sampler of Groundwater PollutionIndia's Central Pollution Control Board surveyed 22 major industrial zones in the late-1990s and found that groundwater in every one of them was unfit for drinking. (p. 32)In the northern Chinese provinces of Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, and Shandong, nitrate concentrations in groundwater exceeded the health ...

  • Back and Bed: Ergonomic Aspects of Sleeping

    A synergy of physical, psychological, and physiological conditions affects the mental and physical quality of sleep. Although much has been written about this issue, little has been founded on actual research, until ...
