Geological Monitoring Books

  • Geology, Resources and Tectonics

    Myanmar is a country vastly rich in gold, silver, base metals, tin–tungsten, gems and hydrocarbons and is one of the last exploration frontiers remaining in the world. Tectonically Myanmar lies at the eastern end of the Himalayan Mountain Chain and over the last 50 Ma has been profoundly affected by the collision between India and Eurasia, ...

  • The Salt Marshes of Cornwall (the environment of the Camel, Fal, Gannel and Hayle)

    Cornwall is a land defined by it's coastline and the mining industry that supported it's people for so long. As such, the estuaries of Cornwall have become highly contaminated, resulting in an ecology specialised to metal enriched environments. In this edition, we look at the environment of the Camel, Fal, Gannel and Hayle estuaries, focussing on ...

  • Applied Groundwater Studies in Africa: IAH Selected Papers on Hydrogeology, volume 13

    Groundwater is Africa’s most precious natural resource, providing reliable water supplies for many people.  Further development of groundwater resources is fundamental to increasing access to safe water across the continent to meet coverage targets and reduce poverty. There is also an increasing interest in the use of groundwater for ...

  • Geoinformation Technologies for Geo-Cultural Landscapes: European Perspectives

    The focal main objective of the book is to constitute a meaningful linkage among research problems, geoinformation methods and corresponding applications. The research goals, related both to theoretical and practical issues, derive from multidisciplinary fields such as archaeology, history, geography, landscape planning, environment, ...

  • Evaluation and Prevention of Natural Risks

    This book presents historical analyses carried out in the Piemonte-territory in north-western Italy, which focused on the consequences of hydrogeological risks, revealing that damage is continually increasing. The text suggests that this can partly be explained by the consistent expansion of urbanized areas at the expense of areas that are ...

  • 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 ...
