    Geology of Mineral Resources

    Metallogeny, the study of mineral deposit genesis, is a science that originated in France in the early 20th century, which is not surprising when one considers that today the French-speaking countries make a significant contribution to the production of a host of substances. Written by two experts in the field, the Geology of Mineral Resources ...

  • Radioactive and Stable Isotope Geology

    Accelerating progress in the application of radioactive and stable isotope analysis to a varied range of geologicla and geochemical problems in geology has required a complete revision of Isotopes in the Earth Sciences, published in 1988. This new book comprises four parts: the first introduces isotopic chemistry and examines mass ...

  • GIS in Geology and Earth Sciences

    Earth sciences represent the most complicated branch of science in terms of informatics. There are some specific reasons for such complexity. First of all, the scale range inside which the Earth sciences are operating goes from the atomic up to planetary scale. Secondly, there is no other branch of science, which envelops so many different ...
