isotope ratio Books
Stable isotope ratio variation in natural systems reflects the dynamics of Earth systems processes and imparts isotope labels to Earth materials. Carbon isotope ratios of atmospheric CO2 record exchange of carbon between the biosphere and the atmosphere; the incredible journeys of migrating monarchs is ...
The Archaeometallurgy of Copper
The book deals with the ancient exploitation and production of copper, exemplified by the mining district of Faynan, Jordan. It is an interdisciplinary study that comprises (mining-) archaeological and scientific aspects. The development of organisational patterns and technological improvements of mining and smelting through the ages (5th millennium BC to Roman Byzantine period), in a specific ...
Concepts and Controversies in Tidal Marsh Ecology
Tidal salt marshes are viewed as critical habitats for the production of fish and shellfish. As a result, considerable legislation has been promulgated to conserve and protect these habitats, and much of it is in effect today. The relatively young science of ecological engineering has also emerged, and there are now attempts to reverse centuries-old losses by encouraging sound wetland ...
Solar System History from Isotopic Signatures of Volatile Elements
This volume focuses on isotopic signatures of volatile elements as tracers for evolutionary processes during the formation of the Sun and the planets from an interstellar molecular cloud and, in turn, illuminates how the isotopic compositions of the present-day solar system objects have been established. The ...
Comprehensive Environmental Mass Spectrometry
Mass spectrometry is the most sensitive, rapid and informative analytical tool available. In full colour throughout, this book describes the power of this technique in resolving environmental issues, demonstrating how real-world complex problems can be solved in a simple and elegant way. The book begins with the general principles of mass spectrometry, then proceeds to describe a range of ...
