    Geopolitical Atlas of the Oceans

    Richly illustrated with outstanding maps, this book is the first of its kind to address all major issues related to the oceans as well as questions dealing with delimitation of maritime boundaries in territorial seas and areas under juridiction (exclusive economic zones, protected fishing zones, protected ecological zones and continental shelves). ...

  • Principles of Terrane Analysis

    This book introduces the reader to the principles of terrrane analysis, and describes how accretion tectonics relates to classic plate tectonics theory and what this represents in terms of mountain building and continental growth processes. A forensic-like investigation of continental geology is detailed, integrating many different ...

  • Finding Common Ground: Indigenous peoples and their association with the mining sector

    This report contains an overview of the Mining, Minerals and Sustainable Development (MMSD) project’s analysis and engagement on the relationship between indigenous peoples and the mining and minerals sector. Along with an overview of relevant MMSD work, the report includes edited versions of three research reports commissioned by MMSD to address ...

  • The Encyclopedia of Mineralogy

    The Encyclopedia of Mineralogy provides comprehensive, basic treatment of the science of mineralogy. More than 140 articles by internationally known scholars and research workers describe specific areas of mineralogical interest, and a glossary of 3000 entries defines all valid mineral species and many related mineral names. In addition to ...

  • Soil Mineralogy with Environmental Applications

    Few books achieve a connection between scientifc theory and real world environmental problems, but this one does. Generous use of color images, exercises, and case studies make it friendly for the classroom or non-mineralogist. Discover crystallography, surface chemistry, mineral-solution equilibria, organic matter, and soil mineral analysis. The ...

  • Use of Microcomputers in Geology

    Zoneography of Mineral Resources; H.G. Peneira, A. Soares. Teaching and Testing Strategy in Mineral Exploration by Simulation Techniques on Personal Computers; M. Vannier, R. Woodtli. Computer-Aided Decision Techniques for Hydrogeochemical Uranium Exploration; P. Poyet. Estimating the Probability of Occurence of Mineral Deposits from Multiple ...

  • Progress in Geomathematics

    Celebrating Frits Agterberg’s half-century of publication activity in geomathematics, this volume’s 28 timely papers, written by his friends and colleagues, treat a variety of subjects of current interest, many of them also studied by Frits, including: spatial analysis in mineral resource assessment, quantitative stratigraphy, nonlinear ...

  • Cathodoluminescence in Geosciences

    This book presents an up-to-date overview of cathodoluminescence microscopy and spectroscopy in the field of geosciences. For a decade, no books have been dedicated to this topic. This volume includes new important data on cathodoluminescence spectroscopy, physical parameters and systematic spectral analysis of doped minerals. Each chapter, ...

  • Kinetics of Water-Rock Interaction

    The geochemistry of the earth’s surface is controlled by chemical equilibrium, and the kinetics of the approach toward equilibrium. Many low temperature processes, such as weathering, do not reach equilibrium except over geologically long time periods. The approach to equilibrium can be described by kinetic theory and the application of kinetic ...

  • Social and Environmental Impacts in the North: Methods in Evaluation of Socio-Economic and Environmental Consequences of Mining and Energy Production in the Arctic and Sub-Arctic

    Future development in the Arctic and Subarctic region requires careful attention to the possible consequences of the development activities themselves, in relation to their environmental, socioeconomic and cultural impacts. A more thorough understanding of the impact of future activities, however, demands the dissemination and confrontation of ...

  • Geology and Ecosystems

    This book is the result of an international working group entitled ‘Geology and Ecosystems’ that was organized by the IUGS commission on Geological Sciences for Environmental Planning (COGEOENVIRONMENT). The aim of the working group is to increase awareness and build methodological principles of ecological geology as a new branch of science. This ...

  • Mechanics Problems in Geodynamics

    Geodynamics concerns the dynamics of the earth's global motion, of the earth's interior motion and its interaction with surface features, together with the mechanical processes in the deformation and rupture of geological structures. Its final object is to determine the driving mechanism of these motions. It is highly interdisciplinary. In ...

  • Social and Environmental Impacts in the North: Methods in Evaluation of Socio-Economic and Environmental Consequences of Mining and Energy Production in the Arctic and Sub-Arctic

    Future development in the Arctic and Subarctic region requires careful attention to the possible consequences of the development activities themselves, in relation to their environmental, socioeconomic and cultural impacts. A more thorough understanding of the impact of future activities, however, demands the dissemination and confrontation of ...

  • Thermodynamics in Earth and Planetary Sciences

    This book provides exposition of a large spectrum of geological, geochemical and geophysical problems that are amenable to thermodynamic analysis. It also includes selected problems in planetary sciences, relationships between thermodynamics and microscopic properties, particle size effects, methods of approximation of thermodynamic properties of ...

  • Chemical Elements in Plants and Soil: Parameters Controlling Essentiality

    Earlier works on plant essential elements have revealed a series of complicated, counter-intuitive relationships among various chemical elements in different plant species, due to both unlike usage of certain elements in plants and to different carriers effecting resorption and transport.In an attempt to provide a more coherent theory behind plant ...

  • The Depletion Wall

    We have seen how oil shortages can wreak havoc on the global economy and result in dramatic shifts in politics and regional balance of power. Are other minerals close to being depleted? What impact would that have on the world economy and international politics? These are questions that The Depletion Wall attempts to answer. It ...

  • Renewable Energy Applications for Freshwater Production

    Worldwide, many regions have a great potential to cover part of their pressing water needs by renewable energy powered water treatment processes using either thermal or membrane based technologies. Not only arid and semiarid regions are increasingly exposed to water shortage but also many other regions face a limitation of freshwater resources ...

  • Solid Fuel Chemistry Journal

    The journal publishes theoretical and applied articles on the chemistry and physics of solid fuels and carbonaceous materials. It addresses the composition, structure, and properties of solid fuels. The aim of the published articles is to demonstrate how novel discoveries, developments, and theories may be used in improved analysis and design of ...

  • ASTM Standards for BUILDING LIME and LIME-BASED CONSTRUCTION APPLICATIONS (CD-ROM)

    Over 105 ASTM standards provide guidance for the use of lime in a wide variety of applications that are vital to the construction industry. These standards are essential to the quality of lime products, as well as the test methods and formulations for their use in construction. Standards cover:• Building Lime Standards• General Lime ...
