  • Basement Tectonics 13

    The proceedings of the Thirteenth International Basement Tectonics Conference follows in the footsteps of earlier symposia in highlighting the current status of geological and geophysical investigations in basement-dominated regions of the world. A significant number of papers deal with the tectonics of terranes - their transport, ...

  • Recent Evolution and Seismicity of the Mediterranean Region

    The geodynamic evolution of the Mediterranean region has been often described as a 'puzzling problem' because of the complex space-time distribution of tectonic events. The gathering of new constraining information and frequent changes of data and ideas among the scientists working on this topic seems to be the most suitable approach to the ...

  • Methods in Karst Hydrogeology

    Filling a gap in the karst literature, this book describes methods most appropriate for use in karst terrains. These include methods that are basic to all hydrogeological studies, such as hydraulic investigations, hydrochemistry, geophysics, isotope chemistry and modelling, with the emphasis placed on their application to karst systems. The ...

  • Geotechnical and Geophysical Site Characterization

    A collection of more than 200 papers, Geotechnical and Geophysical Site Characterization covers new developments in mechanical in-situ testing and interpretation techniques, statistical analysis of test data, geo-environmental site characterization, soil sampling methods, multi-dimensional geophysical imaging techniques, residual/unsaturated soil ...

  • Current Practices in Ground Water and Vadose Zone Investigations

    28 peer-reviewed papers on: • Improving the Quality of Ground-Water Investigations • Surface and Borehole Geophysics in Ground-Water Investigations • Direct Push Technology in Ground-Water Investigations • Ground-Water Monitoring Wall Design and Installation • Water-Level Measurement and Ground Water Sampling • ...

  • Time Series Analysis and Applications to Geophysical Systems

    Time series methods are essential tools in the analysis of many geophysical systems. This volume, which consists of papers presented by a select, international group of statistical and geophysical experts at a Workshop on Time Series Analysis and Applications to Geophysical Systems at the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) at the ...

  • Geophysical Applications for Geotechnical Investigations

    This practical volume applies geophysical techniques to hazardous waste site investigations, highway bridge foundations, and water quality. Seven peer-reviewed papers in a section on Surface Geophysics and Borehole Geophysics discuss: • in situ soil testing • measurement of engineering properties in rocks and sediments • ...

  • The MESSENGER Mission to Mercury

    NASA’s MESSENGER mission, launched on 3 August, 2004 is the seventh mission in the Discovery series. MESSENGER encounters the planet Mercury four times, culminating with an insertion into orbit on 18 March 2011. It carries a comprehensive package of geophysical, geological, geochemical, and space environment experiments to complete the complex ...

  • Geodetic Reference Frames

    The book presents the original research on geodetic reference frames presented at the International Symposium on Geodetic Reference Frames of the International Association of Geodesy. The subject is the definition of reference systems and its realization by reference frames used in all applications for precise positioning and navigation, global ...

  • 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 ...

  • High Resolution Morphodynamics and Sedimentary Evolution of Estuaries

    Estuaries occur along many of the world’s coastlines irrespective of geologic setting, energy regime, and depositional environment. They represent the interface between fluvial, coastal and marine environments and they contain the sedimentary record of geological changes among these systems. However, detailed case studies on the morphodynamics and ...

  • Environmental Geology

    This handbook describes a broad spectrum of methods in the fields of remote sensing, geophysics, geology, hydrogeology, geochemistry, and microbiology designed to investigate landfill, mining and industrial sites. The descriptions provide information about the principle of the methods, applications, fundamentals, instruments, survey practice, ...
