  • Undiscovered Petroleum and Mineral Resources

    the development of highly complex processes for evaluating petroleum and mineral resources has fueled debates on the appropriateness of various assessment models and the data used to calibrate them. Covering technical subjects and a range of analytical perspectives, this volume thoroughly discusses current progress in building quantitative ...

  • Applied Stratigraphy

    Few, if any, fundamental disciplines in the earth sciences have seen so many dramatic changes and developments as stratigraphy. The discipline has come to be applied progressively, and indispensably, to nearly all branches of the earth sciences, including such endeavors as charting the course and complexities of life evolution through time, ...

  • Understanding Mineral Deposits

    The challenge of finding new orebodies to satisfy the ever increasing demands for mineral commodities has to be met, in addition to improved techniques of exploration, mining, extraction, and management, by a better understanding of the geologic setting and genesis of the various classes of mineral deposits. A substantial part of the book is ...

  • Social and Environmental Impacts in the North: Methods in Evaluation of Socio-Economic and Environmental Consequences of Mining and Energy Production in the Arctic and Sub-Arctic

    Future development in the Arctic and Subarctic region requires careful attention to the possible consequences of the development activities themselves, in relation to their environmental, socioeconomic and cultural impacts. A more thorough understanding of the impact of future activities, however, demands the dissemination and confrontation of ...

    The Quantitative Data File for Ore Minerals (QDF) is the most complete compilation of linked compositional and reflectance data available today. This, the third edition of the File, contains data in tabular form, organized alphabetically, one mineral to a page, supplemented by graphs of the reflectance spectra. ...

  • Economic Evaluations in Exploration

    The textbook is intended for the economic geologist who deals with the evaluation of deposits at an early stage of development. It offers rules for quick and easy calculations based on the application of approximate data. It provides both the student and the geologist in the field with a complete set of rules and methods enabling them to perform a ...

  • Model-based Geostatistics

    Geostatistics is concerned with estimation and prediction problems for spatially continuous phenomena, using data obtained at a limited number of spatial locations. The name reflects its origins in mineral exploration, but the methods are now used in a wide range of settings including public health and the physical and environmental sciences. ...

  • The Earth´s Magnetism

    Initially, this book reviews the general characteristics of the Earth’s magnetic field and the magnetic properties of minerals, and then proceeds to introduce the multifold applications of geomagnetism in earth sciences. The authors analyze the contribution of geomagnetism both in more general geological fields, such as tectonics and geodynamics, ...

  • Thermodynamics in Mineral Sciences

    The subject of this book are natural systems where thermodynamic processes take place as a result of changes in temperature, pressure and composition. The basic concepts are discussed on low level trying to preserve the mathematical rigor. Calculated examples using data from the mineralogical literature are given to elucidate the difficult and ...
