  • Applied Hydrogeology of Fractured Rocks

    Hydrogeology is a topical and growing subject as the earth's water resources become scarcer and more vulnerable. More than half of the surface area of continents is covered with hard rocks of low permiability.This book deals comprehensively with the fundamental principles for understanding the hydrogeological characteristics of rocks, as well as ...

  • Geotechnical Testing Journal

    The purpose of the Geotechnical Testing Journal is (1) to provide a high-quality publication that informs the profession of new developments in soil and rock testing and related fields; (2) to provide a forum for the exchange of information, particularly that which leads to the development of new test procedures; and (3) to stimulate active ...

  • Lagrangian Transport in Geophysical Jets and Waves

    This book provides an accessible introduction to a new set of methods for the analysis of Lagrangian motion in geophysical flows. These methods were originally developed in the abstract mathematical setting of dynamical systems theory, through a geometric approach to differential equations. Despite the recent developments in this field and the ...

  • Basement Tectonics 12

    The Proceedings of the Twelfth International Basement Tectonics Conference continues an emphasis on tectonic problems of the older continental crust. While the evolution of the southern margin of the North American plate receives needed attention, problem areas of the Appalachians and of the Italian region are also treated. Finally methods of ...

  • Field Methods for Petroleum Geologists

    Provides an introduction to petroleum exploration methods, referring to both geophysical and geochemical techniques and the logistics of various drilling techniques and well logging methods for oil and gas exploration. The second part of the book focuses on using these methods for petroleum exploration within the context of northern Africa. The ...

  • Water Resources of Arid Areas: Proceedings of the International Conference on Water Resources of Arid and Semi-Arid Regions of Africa, Garborone, Botswana, 3-6 August 2004

    This book comprises the proceedings of the International Conference on Water Resources of Arid and Semi-Arid regions of Africa. Africa´s resources are threatened by an increasing population. It is important that the water resources in arid and semi-arid regions are developed in a sustainable manner. After an introduction about the difficulties in ...
