  • Geological Atlas of Africa

    This is the first attempt to summarise the geology of Africa by presenting it in an atlas and to synthesise the stratigraphy, tectonics, economic geology, geohazards, geosites and geoscientific education of each country and territory of the continent. Furthermore, the digitised geological maps (on the attached CD-ROM) are correlated and harmonised ...

  • 3-D Structural Geology

    This is a handbook of practical techniques for making the best possible interpretation of geological structures at the map scale and for extracting the maximum amount of information from surface and subsurface maps. The 3-D structure is defined by internally consistent structure contour maps and cross sections of all horizons and faults. The book ...

  • GIS for the Earth Sciences CD-Rom

    This volume provides the earth scientist with many examples of how a Geographic Information System (GIS) in concert with other software (statistical, image analysis) can be useful for addressing various earth science applications that involve spatial analysis of a wide range of geo-science datasets. Examples include mineral resource assessment ...

  • Field Methods for Geologists and Hydrogeologists

    The authors describe project performance, methods for field study of rocks, soils, and outcrops and how to evaluate impacts of air pollution and water resources systems. Furthermore, they develop guidelines for graphic and text presentation of results of studies and describe superficial rock characteristics and subsurface geological mapping ...

  • 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, ...

  • Remote Sensing and GIS for Site Characterization: Applications and Standards

    The latest practical uses for remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) for definitive site evaluation. This comprehensive publication also features 35 state-of-the-art color graphics.17 peer-reviewed papers from an international team of scientists and engineers are divided into 5 areas: Two keynote papers discuss remote sensing and ...

  • The Andes

    This book provides the first comprehensive overview of a complete subduction orogen, the Andes, considered to represent the 'type' subduction belt on Earth. Integrating the results from a wide variety of methods it provides the most compact and highly resolved geophysical image of an active subduction orogen complimented by detailed geodetic data ...

  • New Frontiers in Integrated Solid Earth Sciences

    Man’s intensifying use of the Earth’s habitat has led to an urgent need for scientifically advanced ‘geo-prediction systems’ that accurately locate subsurface resources and forecast the timing and magnitude of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and land subsidence.As advances in the earth sciences lead to process-oriented ways of modeling the complex ...

  • Landslides: Evaluation and Stabilization/Glissement de Terrain: Evaluation et Stabilisation, Set of 2 Volumes: Proceedings of the Ninth International Symposium on Landslides, June 28 -July 2, 2004 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

    This book comprises the Proceedings of the Ninth International Symposium on Landslides, held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from June 28 to July 2, 2004. State-of-the-art information on the latest developments in Landslide Studies is presented by invited lecture reports, specialized panel contributions and 244 technical papers, grouped in the ...

  • Remote Sensing Image Analysis: Including the Spatial Domain

    Remote Sensing image analysis is mostly done using only spectral information on a pixel by pixel basis. Information captured in neighbouring cells, or information about patterns surrounding the pixel of interest often provides useful supplementary information. This book presents a wide range of innovative and advanced image processing methods for ...

  • Hyperspectral Remote Sensing: Principles and Applications

    Land management issues, such as mapping tree species, recognizing invasive plants, and identifying key geologic features, require an understanding of complex technical issues before the best decisions can be made. Hyperspectral remote sensing is one the technologies that can help with reliable detection and identification. Presenting the ...
