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 ...

  • Hydrogeology and Groundwater Modeling, Second Edition

    Coupling the basics of hygrogeology with analytical and numerical modeling methods, Hydrogeology and Groundwater Modeling, Second Edition provides detailed coverage of both theory and practice. Written by a leading hydrogeologist who has consulted for industry and environmental agencies and taught at major universities around the world, this ...

  • 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 ...

  • Applications of Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry to Radionuclide Determinations, 2nd Volume

    Features the most current methods for determining precise levels of radiation exposure using state-of-the-art instrumentation. An international selection of experts in the field from the United States, Europe and the Middle East have presented 13 comprehensive, peer-reviewed papers in two key categories: Applications of ICP-MS in the Nuclear ...

  • Quantitative Methods in Fractography

    Presents the thinking a methodology employed today in evaluation fractographic features. 9 papers view recent developments in quantitative fractography and computed tomography in composites, as well as fractographic features in HY-100 steel and 2024 aluminum to the critical strain energy ...

  • The South China Sea

    This book is the first synthesis of sedimentary geology and paleoceanography of the South China Sea on the basis of extensive industrial explorations and scientific expeditions culminated with the ODP Leg 184. It provides up-to-date knowledge about the history of this largest marginal sea in the West Pacific, deep-sea records of evolution and ...

  • Neoproterozoic Geobiology and Paleobiology

    The Neoproterozoic Era (1000–542 million years ago) has become a major focus of geobiological investigations because it is a geological period characterized by dramatic climatic change and important evolutionary innovations. Repeated glaciations of unusual magnitude occurred throughout this tumultuous interval, and various eukaryotic clades ...

  • Vegetation of the Tropical Pacific Islands

    Written by the leading authorities on the plant diversity and ecology of the Pacific islands, this book is a magisterial synthesis of the vegetation and landscapes of the islands of the Pacific Ocean. It is organized by island group, and includes information on geography, geology, phytogeographic relationships, and human influences on vegetation. ...

  • The Sea Floor

    The Sea Floor deals with the most important results achieved in Marine Geology over the last three decades. Relevant geophysical, geochemical, sedimentological and paleontological methods are shortly described. They should allow the reader to comment on new results about plate tectonics, marine sedimentation from the coasts to the deep sea, ...

  • Geological Atlas of Africa

    This is the first attempt to summarise the geology of Africa by presenting it in an atlas and to synthesise the stratigraphy, tectonics, economic geology, geohazards, geosites and geoscientific education of each country and territory of the continent. Furthermore, the digitised geological maps (on the attached CD-ROM) are correlated and harmonised ...

  • Mantle Plumes

    The concept of mantle plumes, hot buoyant rock masses that rise in the mantle, is a key to understand intraplate volcanism in the framework of modern plate tectonics. Recent progress in instrumental, analytical and satellite technology enables scientists to verify the plume hypothesis with seismic tomography, isotope geochemistry and other ...

  • 3-D Structural Geology

    This is a handbook of practical techniques for making the best possible interpretation of geological structures at the map scale and for extracting the maximum amount of information from surface and subsurface maps. The 3-D structure is defined by internally consistent structure contour maps and cross sections of all horizons and faults. The book ...

  • Exploring the Moon

    David Harland opens with a review of the robotic probes, namely the Rangers which returned television before crashing into the Moon, the Surveyors which 'soft landed' in order to investigate the nature of the surface, and the Lunar Orbiters which mapped prospective Apollo landing sites. He then outlines the historic landing by Apollo 11 in terms ...
