  • Under Ground

    Let's get dirty. In childhood, the back yard, the flowerbed, the beach, the mucky place where land slips into puddles, lakes, and streams are infinitely fascinating. It is a mistake to leave that 'childish' fascination with mud and dirt behind. The soils of the Earth, whether underneath our feet or pressurized beneath tons of ocean water, hold ...

  • Under Ground: How Creatures of Mud and Dirt Shape Our World

    Let's get dirty. In childhood, the back yard, the flowerbed, the beach, the mucky place where land slips into puddles, lakes, and streams are infinitely fascinating. It is a mistake to leave that ''childish'' fascination with mud and dirt behind. The soils of the Earth, whether underneath our feet or pressurized beneath tons of ocean water, hold ...

  • Water Flow In Soils, Second Edition

    The new edition of a bestseller, Water Flow in Soils bridges the fields of soil physics-where descriptions of water flow tend to be microscopic- and hydrology - where they tend to be macroscopic. Unlike other physics laden texts, this work conveys the fundamental concepts of water flow in soils with clear and essentially nonmathematical ...

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 ...

The book is divided into three parts and a comprehensive glossary/index provides easy access to the contents of the book. ...

  • 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 ...
