  • Reclamation of Drastically Disturbed Lands

    Land reclamation, particularly of land disturbed by mining, is a major environmental issue throughout the world. Thirty-eight chapters explore the vast complexities involved in reclamation after large-scale disturbances and provide a broad range of perspectives and examples of reclamation efforts. Readers will find specifics, from mapping minesoil ...

  • Compositional Analysis by Thermogravimetry

    The Special Technical Publication is the result of an international symposium, which was held 16 and 17 March 1987 at Philadelphia, PA. This symposium was organized and sponsored by the ASTM Committee E37 on Thermal Measurements. The symposium as well as the special technical publication cover a broad spectrum of applications of thermogravimetry ...

  • Mass Spectrometric Characterization of Shale Oils

    Offers solutions to the problems of selecting protective clothing to guard workers against chemical and thermal occupational hazards. Contains sections on chemical protection, thermal protection and risk ...

  • Turning Waste into Vehicle Fuel: Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) - A Step-By-Step Guide For Communities

    Energy Vision is a national 501 (c) (3) organization based in New York City whose goal is to  promote - through research and action - a swift transition to pollution-free renewable energy  sources. Programmatically, Energy Vision informs and engages with policy, business, and  environmental leaders, to support the shift of medium- ...

  • Oil and Security

    This book discusses the demise of the unreliable and risk prone use of solid and liquid fossil fuel and the development of a sustainable world energy system which assures environmental quality and an equitable socio-economic system.Although more sources of oil are becoming available, supply of oil is becoming increasingly less secure. Increasing ...

  • The Shale Oil and Gas Debate

    In the space of six years, the united States have reduced their dependence on oil by a third and have become almost self-sufficient in terms of gas supply. This “shale oil and gas revolution”, a sudden and unexpected earthquake in the energy world, enabled the US to become one of the most competitive countries in the world. Exporting ...

  • Stress Field of the Earth´s Crust

    This book about rock stress is suitable for students in geosciences and engineering, who need to broaden their horizon about the Stress Field of the Earth´s Crust. The book covers the topic in a way such that geoscience students will be able to grasp the Cauchy Stress Principle without fear of matrix transformations in an exercise. Students ...

  • Tensile Fracturing in Rocks

    Understanding tensile fracture in rocks provides an important key for the interpretation of many problems in structural geology. This book presents a multidisciplinary approach to tensile fracture in rocks (faulting is briefly addressed), starting with an introduction to fracture physics and progressing through tectonofractographic features, ...

  • Turning a Problem Into a Resource

    The Sillamäe Metallurgy Plant in Estonia was managed by the USSR Ministry of Medium-Scale Engineering and was built in 1946 to produce uranium metal from local shales. After these were found to be unsatisfactory, uranium ores were imported. Part of the plant was converted in the 1980s to produce rare earth oxides and niobium and tantalum from ...

  • Composition, Geochemistry and Conversion of Oil Shales

    The last 15 years has seen the development of a number of innovative process concepts, such as fluid-bed pyrolysis and hydroretorting which have enabled considerably higher oil yields to be obtained than by simple retorting. To understand these phenomena, detailed structural information is clearly required on the organic matter present in ...

  • Solid Fuel Chemistry Journal

    The journal publishes theoretical and applied articles on the chemistry and physics of solid fuels and carbonaceous materials. It addresses the composition, structure, and properties of solid fuels. The aim of the published articles is to demonstrate how novel discoveries, developments, and theories may be used in improved analysis and design of ...

  • Education 40.4

    A\J's 2014 Education issue digs into what it means to get an environmental education – plus where to get one, what you can do with it, and why everyone should have ...

  • Resource Wars 40.1

    Fracking. Hydro Dams. Pipelines. This is the fight of our lives. Humans have culled and mined resources from our habitats for centuries, but never before has it been so intensive and extensive, nor have we ever been so aware of the looming downside. We know that choosing how to manage, supply and bankroll our natural capital in the age of climate ...

  • Geomechanics and Fluidodynamics

    This monograph is based on subsurface hydrodynamics and applied geomechanics and puts it in a unifying framework. It focuses on the understanding of physical and mechanical properties of geomaterials by presenting mathematical models of deformation and fracture with related experiments. Borehole stability and water, gas and oil reservoir ...

  • Natural and Laboratory Simulated Thermal Geochemical Processes

    Natural and Laboratory-Simulated Thermal Geochemical Processes compares a series of thermal natural geochemical events with thermally laboratory-simulated processes. The emphasis is on the geothermal events occurring in nature compared with those simulated in the laboratory, thus furnishing important information at the molecular level for such ...
