Fully ...

  • The Design, Sampling Handling, and Applications of Infrared Microscopes

    In the spring of 1985, when this symposium was first planned, the use of a microscope as an accessory in a Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectrometer was still somewhat a new concept. The symposium was planned as a means of introducing many people to this new technique. The day long symposium, which was part of the 1985 Federation of ...

  • Electron Beam Microanalysis

    In recent years the development of new scientific instruments and techniques has made microanalysis an essential and powerful tool for the materials scientist. The ability to chemically characterize small, included particles or second-phase materials down to one micrometer (1 µm) in diameter and to determine the nature of surfaces with a depth ...

  • Symosium on Advances in Electron Metallography

    Eleven papers present comprehensive techniques for the study of materials through the electron microscope such as: titanium alloys; aluminum foils; nickel alloys and magnesium alloys. Five advanced techniques are described and ...

  • Image Analysis, Sediments and Paleoenvironments

    This seventh volume of the DPER series examines imaging techniques for sedimentologists, paleolimnologists, paleoceanographers and microscopists working on issues related to paleoenvironmental reconstruction. It will help the researcher or graduate student to understand every step involved in the imaging process, from image acquisition to ...

  • Igneous and Metamorphic Rocks under the Microscope

    This is the first modern text to provide a thorough integrated treatment of those parts of the subject that use the polarizing microscope as the central analytical tool. The book is divided into three parts and a comprehensive glossary/index provides easy access to the contents of the book. ...

  • Pollen Terminology

    Palynology is important in basic as well as in manifold applied sciences, as e.g. biology, medicine, forensics, earth history, climatology and food production. This volume is the first fully illustrated handbook of palynological principles and glossary terms, exclusively using LM and EM micrographs of superior quality. A comprehensive General ...

  • Hungry Hollow

    Hungry Hollow is simply an ordinary creek winding through about a mile of ordinary forest and meadow somewhere east of the Rocky Mountains. But like all such places, it is also a vast and intricate web of life with extensions that reach around the planet, back into prehistoric time, and within to a teeming, bizarre microscopic world. In dozens of ...

  • Atlas of Woody Plant Stems

    This atlas describes the anatomical basics of dendrochronology and wood technology. It gives a unique assemblage of microscopic slides of wood and bark anatomy and demonstrates the reaction of stems to different environments. It provides insight into the evolution of wood, to the variation of wood anatomy in response to climate and disturbances, ...

  • Optical Properties of Low Dimensional Silicon Structures

    This book describes the state of the art on the luminescent properties of porous silicon. The dramatic results of the major international laboratories and groups working in this subject are presented. The majority of the participants agree that a quantum confinement effect and a good passivation of the surface crystallites are responsible for ...

  • Computational Earthquake Science, Part II

    Exciting developments in earthquake science have benefited from new observations, improved computational technologies, and improved modeling capabilities. Designing models of the earthquake generation process is a grand scientific challenge due to the complexity of phenomena and range of scales involved from microscopic to global. Such models ...

  • Computational Earthquake Science, Part 1

    Exciting developments in earthquake science have benefited from new observations, improved computational technologies, and improved modeling capabilities. Designing models of the earthquake of the earthquake generation process is a grand scientific challenge due to the complexity of phenomena and range of scales involved from microscopic to ...

  • Biophysics

    Biophysics - the science of physical principles of life itself, of biological systems - is presented here not merely as physics for biologists, but as an entirely independent subject with its own innate network of ideas and approaches. From the microscopic forces that constitute life, the intramolecular bonds and ionic interactions, to the ...

  • Accretion of Extraterrestrial Matter Throughout Earth´s History

    Every year Earth is bombarded with about 40,000 tons of extraterrestrial material. This includes microscopic cosmic dust particles shed by comets and asteroids in outer space, meteorites, as well as large comets and asteroids that have led to catastrophic events in the geologic past. Originally considered only a curiosity, extraterrestrial ...

  • Protist Diversity and Geographical Distribution

    There is still a widespread belief that microscopic organisms, such as bacteria, fungi, protists, and small multicellulars, have a cosmopolitan distribution due to a presumed easy dispersal by wind and water. However, the contributions collected in this book – ranging from protists to rotifers and mosses – show that microorganisms have community ...

  • Fish Histology

    Fish — including cyclostomes, elasmobranchs, and teleosts — display a wide variety of ways of coping with the stringent conditions they encounter in the aquatic environment. This diversity is especially evident in the female genital systems where some fish spawn profligate numbers of small eggs while others develop a few yolky eggs that may ...

  • Microscopic Properties and Processes in Minerals

    A detailed account of the application of modern physical and chemical techniques to the elucidation of the structures and properties of minerals at the atomic level. Strong emphasis is given to the application of computer modelling methods, spectroscopic techniques and both X-ray and neutron scattering methods. Detailed surveys are presented ...
