  • Thrust Belts and Foreland Basins

    What is the important geologic information recorded in Thrust Belts and Foreland Basins (TBFB) on the evolution of orogens? How do they transcript the coupled influence of deep and surficial geological processes? Is it still worth looking for hydrocarbons in foothills areas? These and other questions are addressed in the volume edited by Lacombe, ...

  • Biochemical Mechanisms of Detoxification in Higher Plants

    Plants play a key role in purifying the biosphere of the toxic effects of industrial activity. This book shows how systematic application of the results of investigations into the metabolism of xenobiotics (foreign, often toxic substances) in plants could make a vastly increased contribution to planetary well-being. Deep physiological knowledge ...

  • Design of Hydraulic Gates

    This book is based on the author's 35 years of experience as engineer of hydromechanical projects and describes, in a simple and objective manner, the principal aspects of the design, manufacture, erection and operation of hydraulic gates. Specific topics are analyzed in depth such as the selection of the gate type, the limits of their use, ...

  • Limnology and Oceanography e-Books

    The analysis presented here has two foundation blocks, both literally and figuratively. Coral reefs are iconic examples of the first block: shallow-water calcareous sediment and (eventually) limestone. In his 1842 book From the Voyages of the Beagle, Charles Darwin described the origins of coral atolls as thick limestone deposits from continued ...

  • 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 ...

  • Shallow Lakes ´95

    Shallow lakes differ from deep ones in many aspects of nutrient dynamics, biotic structure and interactions of various trophic levels.
