  • Integrated High Resolution Imaging Radar and Decision Support System for the rehabilitation of WATER PIPElines

    Many EU cities are experiencing increasing problems with their water pipeline infrastructure. The cost of replacing these old, worn-out systems, if left to deteriorate beyond repair, is astronomical and clearly beyond the resources of many communities. Replacement, however, is not the only choice as many of these systems can be rehabilitated at 30 ...

  • An Introduction to Our Dynamic Planet

    This is the first undergraduate textbook to fully integrate results from geophysics, geochemistry, and petrology to describe the structure, composition, and dynamic processes that operate throughout the solid Earth. It presents an Earth system science approach to studies of the Earth’s interior and develops a global view of solid Earth cycles to ...

  • 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 ...

  • Earthquake Spectra

    The great earthquake and tsunami of 26 December 2004, and the resulting tragic loss of life across the Indian Ocean, created global awareness of the tsunami phenomenon and it's unpredictability, and the destructiveness of its impact across political borders and ocean basins. An estimated 230,000 people lost their lives, and more than a million ...

  • Nondestructive Testing of Pavements and Backcalculations of Moduli: Third Volume

    More than 30 papers present a comprehensive overview of the latest advances in and the future direction of nondestructive testing (NDT) of airport and highway pavement using conventional falling weight deflectometer (FWD) technique and other promising techniques such as ground penetrating radar (GPR), rolling weight deflectometer (RWD) testing, ...

  • Geophysical Applications for Geotechnical Investigations

    This practical volume applies geophysical techniques to hazardous waste site investigations, highway bridge foundations, and water quality. Seven peer-reviewed papers in a section on Surface Geophysics and Borehole Geophysics discuss: • in situ soil testing • measurement of engineering properties in rocks and sediments • ...

  • Manual on Drilling, Sampling, and Analysis of Coal

    Guidelines on state-of-the-art aspects of drilling and sampling coal. Can be modified as necessary to fit your specific needs (for example, you can use them to prepare your own field manual to standardize exploration activities). Chapters include: drilling equipment; • geophysical logging; • description of coal and rocks; • sampling of ...

  • Granite Genesis: In-Situ Melting and Crustal Evolution

    Granitic rocks are a major component of the continental crust and the many and complex problems of their origin that have confronted geologists for over 200 years still are presenting challenges today. Current ideas of granite formation involve lower crustal melting, segregation, ascent (as dykes or diapirs) and emplacement in the upper crust. In ...

  • Light Scattering Reviews

    The book consists of 3 chapters with 10 contributions written by internationally renowned experts in the correspondent areas. The first chapter is devoted to the study of light scattering by a single particle and also by the ensembles of particles in the single scattering approximation valid for a low concentration of scatterers. In particular, ...

  • Mechanics Problems in Geodynamics

    Geodynamics concerns with the dynamics of the global motion of the earth, of the motion in the earth's interior 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 which is highly ...

  • Basement Tectonics 13

    The proceedings of the Thirteenth International Basement Tectonics Conference follows in the footsteps of earlier symposia in highlighting the current status of geological and geophysical investigations in basement-dominated regions of the world. A significant number of papers deal with the tectonics of terranes - their transport, ...

  • Dynamics of Internal Gravity Waves in the Ocean

    This monograph creates a systematic interpretation of the theoretical and the most actual experimental aspects of the internal wave dynamics in the ocean. Firstly, it draws attention to the important physical effects from an oceanographical point of view which are presented in mathematical descriptions. Secondly, the book serves as an ...

  • Seismic Reflection Processing

    The author coherently presents the physical concepts, mathematical details and methodology for optimizing results of reservoir modeling, under conditions of isotropy and anisotropy. The most common form of anisotropy – the transverse isotropy, is dealt with in detail. Besides, practical aspects in reservoir engineering – such as interval isotropic ...

  • Thermoelastic Models of Continua

    This volume is concerned with the basic problems of the theory of thermoelasticity for three models of continuous bodies: materials with voids, micropolar solids and nonsimple bodies. Beginning with the basic laws of thermodynamics, the theory of thermoelastic materials with voids is treated. Two subsequent chapters cover the analysis of the ...

  • Non-equilibrium Thermodynamics and the Production of Entropy

    The present volume studies the application of concepts from non-equilibrium thermodynamics to a variety of research topics. Emphasis is on the Maximum Entropy Production (MEP) principle and applications to Geosphere-Biosphere couplings. Written by leading researchers from a wide range of backgrounds, the book presents a first coherent account of ...

  • A Field Guide to Geophysics in Archaeology

    Geophysics operations in archaeology have become well known through exposure on television. However, the technique is presented as the action of specialists and something of a mystery, where people walk about with strange contraptions, and results appear from a computer. This is not the case, however. Some scientific knowledge is needed in order ...

  • Gravity, Geoid and Geodynamics 2000

    This symposium continued the tradition of mid-term meetings held between the joint symposia of International Geoid and Gravity Commissions. This time, geodynamics was chosen as the third topic to accompany the traditional topics of gravity and geoid. The symposium thus aimed at bringing together geodesists and geophysicists working in the general ...

  • Avalanche Dynamics

    Avalanches, debris, mudflows and landslides are common and natural phenomena that occur worldwide, predominantly in mountainous regions. With an emphasis on snow avalanches, this book sets out to provide a survey and discussion about the motion of avalanche-like flows from initiation to run out. An important aspect of this book is the formulation ...

  • Geodetic Reference Frames

    The book presents the original research on geodetic reference frames presented at the International Symposium on Geodetic Reference Frames of the International Association of Geodesy.
