  • Granite Genesis: In-Situ Melting and Crustal Evolution

    Granitic rocks are a major component of the continental crust and the many and complex problems of their origin that have confronted geologists for over 200 years still are presenting challenges today. Current ideas of granite formation involve lower crustal melting, segregation, ascent (as dykes or diapirs) and emplacement in the upper crust. In ...

  • Air-Ice-Ocean Interaction

    At a time when the polar regions are undergoing rapid and unprecedented change, understanding exchanges of momentum, heat and salt at the ice-ocean interface is critical for realistically predicting the future state of sea ice. By offering a measurement platform largely unaffected by surface waves, drifting sea ice provides a unique laboratory for ...

  • When Continents Collide

    The few coesite-bearing outcrops have conventionally been considered as anomalies but the number of orogenic belts that contain diamond, coesite or other indications of metamorphic pressures >2Gpa has increased to more than 15. This indicates that subduction of continental fragments to depths of 100-150 km may have played a significant ...

  • 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 ...

  • Nonlinear Processes in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics

    This volume deals with various nonlinear phenomena in geophysical flows. Processes studied are, among others, the stability of currents and vortices, internal wave generation and propagation, and atmosphere-ocean interaction. The geographic extent of the processes discussed range from the local (the Gulf of California and other marginal seas) to ...

  • Principles of Applied Geophysics

    This book gives a comprehensive and authoritative survey of modern geophysical methods used in prospecting for natural resources, and in civil engineering, geohydrological, and environmental investigation. It is written with an emphasis on physical explanation and practical applications. Principles of Applied Geophysics is essential ...

  • Numerical Methods for Fluid Dynamics

    This book is a major revision of Numerical Methods for Wave Equations in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics; the new title of the second edition conveys its broader scope. The second edition is designed to serve graduate students and researchers studying geophysical fluids, while also providing a non-discipline-specific introduction to numerical methods ...

  • Troia and the Troad

    When reconstructing the past, the archaeologist needs to take into account all kinds of relevant information. Where no written evidence is available, the natural sciences play an indispensable role. Troia is a remarkable site in this respect. The present Troia project, under the directorship of Manfred Korfmann, integrates various disciplines ...

  • 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 ...

  • Dynamic Planet

    Part I Joint IAG/IAPSO Papers.- Part II Frontiers in the analysis of space geodetic measurements.- Part III Gravity field determination from a synthesis of terrestrial, satellite, airborne and altimetry measurements.- Part IV Earth Processes: geodynamics, tides, crustal deformation and temporal gravity changes.- Part V Advances in the realization ...

  • Boreal Forest and Climate Change

    An active co-operation between forest ecologists and physicist has continued for decades at the University of Helsinki. These scientists have the common vision that material and energy fluxes are the key to a proper understanding of natural phenomena. The authors of this book come from very different disciplines: tree ecophysiology, silviculture, ...
