  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Satellite Radar Interferometry

    This book covers a unique combination of scientific research and the practical demand for subsidence monitoring techniques focused on the satellite radar interferometry technique (InSAR). It covers the topic in a generic way: both precision and reliability of InSAR as a measurement technique, and the estimation of earth surface deformation in the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Moment Analysis for Subsurface Hydrologic Applications

    This book deals with the concept of moments, and how they find application in subsurface hydrologic problems-particularly those dealing with solute transport. This book will be very valuable to researchers who are beginning to learn about moment analysis, and will also be of interest to advanced researchers as well. Both temporal and spatial ...

  • Seismic Modelling and Pattern Recognition in Oil Exploration

    This book is aimed primarily at earth scientists, research workers and engineers who are investigating new techniques and ideas for processing and interpreting large amounts of numerical data. It meets the long felt need for a comprehensive text dealing with various aspects of pattern recognition in a single volume. The treatment starts with ...

  • Field Methods for Geologists and Hydrogeologists

    The authors describe project performance, methods for field study of rocks, soils, and outcrops and how to evaluate impacts of air pollution and water resources systems. Furthermore, they develop guidelines for graphic and text presentation of results of studies and describe superficial rock characteristics and subsurface geological mapping ...

  • Neanderthals Revisited

    Recent years have witnessed exciting and important scientific breakthroughs in the study of Neanderthals and their place in human evolution which have transformed our appreciation of this group’s paleobiology and evolution. This volume presents cutting-edge research by leading scientists re-examining the major debates in Neanderthal research with ...

  • Subduction Zone Geodynamics

    Subduction is a major process that plays a first-order role in the dynamics of the Earth. The sinking of cold lithosphere into the mantle is thought by many authors to be the most important source of energy for plates driving forces. It also deeply modifies the thermal and chemical structure of the mantle, producing arc volcanism and is ...

  • Subsurface Conditions

    Characterisation of the shallow subsurface has gained in importance as civil and geotechnical engineering and environmental applications have become more dependent on a precise definition of geomechanical and geohydrological properties. A better understanding of the subsurface conditions offers wide-ranging benefits to governments, industry and ...

  • New Frontiers in Integrated Solid Earth Sciences

    Man’s intensifying use of the Earth’s habitat has led to an urgent need for scientifically advanced ‘geo-prediction systems’ that accurately locate subsurface resources and forecast the timing and magnitude of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and land subsidence.As advances in the earth sciences lead to process-oriented ways of modeling the complex ...

  • Computational Subsurface Hydrology

    Any numerical subsurface model is comprised of three components: a theoretical basis to translate our understanding phenomena into partial differential equations and boundary conditions, a numerical method to approximate these governing equations and implement the boundary conditions, and a computer implementation to generate a generic code ...

  • Deep Structure of the Swiss Alps

    The novel tectonic model of the deep crustal structure of the Alpine collision zone is the result of an integration of seismic reflection and refraction data and structural data. Besides data gathered from the crust/mantle boundary, significant new insight was gained from the shallower structures. This includes 3D, subsurface mapping of Alpine ...

  • Ionospheric Tomography

    The purpose of this monograph is both to introduce and review developed tomograhic methods for discovering 2D and 3D structures of the ionosphere and to discuss the experimental implementation of these methods. The theoretical part deals with the solution of the inverse problem of diffraction tomography for a wide range of properties of ...

  • Ice Ages and Interglacials

    This book studies the history and gives an analysis of extreme climate change on Earth. In order to provide a long-term perspective, the first chapter briefly reviews some of the wild gyrations that occurred in the Earth’s climate hundreds of millions of years ago: snowball Earth and hothouse Earth. Coming closer to modern times, the effects of ...
