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 ...

  • Geoenvironmental Mapping: Methods,Theory and Practice

    The purpose of this text is to illustrate the wide variety of geoscience mapping that is presently undertaken around the world. To meet this goal, contributions from specialists in several countries were solicited to cover a number of subdisciplinary and thematic topics collectively called Geoenvironmental Mapping. Included in this compilation are ...

  • Microprobe Techniques in the Earth Sciences

    30% discount for members of The Mineralogical Society of Britain and IrelandThis text covers the range of microanalytical techniques available for the analysis of geological samples, principally in research applications. Each chapter is written in a clear, informative style and has a tutorial element, designed to introduce each technique for the ...

  • Field Monitoring Disposal, 2016 Edition

    The objective of this publication is to provide practical information about using low cost and low technology tools that are useful for monitoring of possible environmental impacts associated with disposal at sea of either dredged material or inert, inorganic geological materials. The primary audiences for this guidance are countries that are ...

  • Water Circulation in Rocks

    Understanding water circulation in rocks represents a very important element to solving many of the problems linked with civil, environmental and mining engineering. This book offers a synthesis of the actual knowledge about the fluid flow in rocks:- from the medium characterization and the structural geological survey to the generation of ...

  • Uranium, Mining and Hydrogeology

    Subject of the book is Uranium and its migration in aquatic environments. The following subjects are emphasised: Uranium mining, Phosphate mining, mine closure and remediation, Uranium in groundwater and in bedrock, biogeochemistry of Uranium, environmental behavior, and modeling. Particular results from the leading edge of international research ...

  • The Geology of Fluvial Deposits

    The Geology of Fluvial Deposits represents the first published synthesis of research on the sedimentary geology of fluvial deposits. It sets out in detail the methods for the field and subsurface study of these sediments, and provides geologists with detailed descriptions of the building blocks of fluvial stratigraphic units, from lithofacies ...

  • Basement Tectonics 8

    The Proceedings of the Eighth International Basement Tectonics Conference examines the tectonics of Mesozoic and older continental margins.
