  • Introduction to Medical Geology

    Over two billion people live in tropical lands. Most of them live in intimate contact with the immediate geological environment, obtaining their food and water directly from it. The unique geochemistry of these tropical environments have a marked influence on their health, giving rise to diseases that affect millions of people. The origin of these ...

  • The Geology of Stratigraphic Sequences

    It has been more than a decade since the appearance of the First Edition of this book. Much progress has been made, but some controversies remain. The original ideas of Sloss and of Vail (building on the early work of Blackwelder, Grabau, Ulrich, Levorsen and others) that the stratigraphic record could be subdivided into sequences, and that these ...

  • Quaternary Geology and the Environment

    Quaternary studies have been considerably developed for the last twenty years or so and research has progressively extended througout the world. Investigative techniques have been refined and geological sections are now analysed with sophisticated tools. In this book the Quaternary is described through the different natural environments which ...
