Geoscience Books

  • Geosciences, Environment and Man

    Geosciences, Environment and Man has three major objectives, which determine the division in three parts of this volume: I. To consider the main natural geological processes interfering with and therefore threatening the activities of man: earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, land movements, floods, wind and coastal risks; main prevention and ...

  • Computational Geosciences with Mathematica

    Computational Geosciences with Mathematica is the only book written by a geologist specifically to show geologists and geoscientists how to use Mathematica to formulate and solve problems. It spans a broad range of geologic and mathematical topics, which are drawn from the author's extensive experience in research, consulting, and teaching. The ...

  • Nonlinear Dynamics in Geosciences

    Nonlinear Dynamics in Geosciences is comprised of the proceedings of '20 Years of Nonlinear Dynamics in Geosciences', held June 11-16, 2006 in Rhodes, Greece as part of the Aegean Conferences. The volume brings together the most up-to-date research from the atmospheric sciences, hydrology, geology, and other areas of geosciences, and discusses the ...

  • Ostracodology - Linking Bio- and Geosciences

    Ostracods, small aquatic Crustacea, occur in almost every marine, brackish and freshwater habitat. Their calcified bivalved carapaces readily fossilize and their record in earth history is long, dense and diverse. Ostracod species are particularly useful as tools in marine and limnic (palaeo-) ecology, in (palaeo-) biogeography, and ...

  • Numerical Treatment of Multiphase Flows in Porous Media

    This book describes in detail the current, state-of-the-art numerical treatment and simulation of multiphase flows in porous media. The porous media considered range from ordinary to fractured and deformable media, the models treated from single-phase compressible flow to multiphase multicomponent flow with mass interchange, while the ...

  • Fundamentals of Computational Geoscience

    This monograph aims to provide state-of-the-art numerical methods, procedures and algorithms in the field of computational geoscience, based on the authors’ own work during the last decade. Although some theoretical results are provided to verify numerical ones, the main focus of this monograph is on computational simulation aspects of the ...

  • Technical English for Geosciences

    The course book Technical English for Geosciences is a real gold mine for all – most especially students and lecturers – who need to enhance their command of the English language with the terminology of geosciences. Subjects from all branches and disciplines of geosciences are discussed: Applied Geology, Geotechnology/Geoengineering, Mineralogy, ...

  • Transactions on Computational Science VI

    The LNCS journal Transactions on Computational Science reflects recent developments in the field of Computational Science, conceiving the field not as a mere ancillary science but rather as an innovative approach supporting many other scientific disciplines. The journal focuses on original high-quality research in the realm of computational ...

  • Hydrothermal Processes and Mineral Systems

    Hydrothermal processes on Earth have played an important role in the evolution of our planet. These processes link the lithosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere in continuously evolving dynamic systems. Terrestrial hydrothermal processes have been active since water condensed to form the hydrosphere, most probably from about 4.4 Ga. The circulation ...

  • Case Studies in Spatial Point Process Modeling

    Point process statistics is successfully used in fields such as material science, human epidemiology, social sciences, animal epidemiology, biology, and seismology. Its further application depends greatly on good software and instructive case studies that show the way to successful work. This book satisfies this need by a presentation of the ...

  • Spherical Functions of Mathematical Geosciences

    This book collects all material developed by the Geomathematics Group, TU Kaiserslautern, during the few last years to set up a theory of spherical functions of mathematical (geo-)physics. The work shows a twofold transition: First, the natural transition from the scalar to the vectorial and tensorial theory of spherical harmonics is given in ...

  • Woody Plants - Evolution and Distribution Since the Tertiary

    Paleobotany has enormously expanded the documentation of fossil plant groups, floras and vegetation types, supporting its conclusions by technically much improved analyses of microfossils (pollen) and anatomical details. An increasing quantity and quality of all these informations from the geosciences is available when we follow the history of the ...

  • Magnetic Anisotropy of Rocks

    This book provides the background, physical instrumentation and geological aspects behind any study of the magnetic anisotropy of a rock in a comprehensive and practical way. After studying this book, readers in the geosciences will be encouraged to use this simple, rapid and inexpensive technique in their studies of rocks. ...

  • Cathodoluminescence in Geosciences

    This book presents an up-to-date overview of cathodoluminescence microscopy and spectroscopy in the field of geosciences. For a decade, no books have been dedicated to this topic. This volume includes new important data on cathodoluminescence spectroscopy, physical parameters and systematic spectral analysis of doped minerals. Each chapter, ...

  • Modelling Critical and Catastrophic Phenomena in Geoscience

    This book presents a broad survey of models for critical and catastrophic phenomena in the geosciences, with strong emphasis on earthquakes. It assumes the perspective of statistical physics, which provides the theoretical frame for dealing with complex systems in general. This volume addresses graduate students wishing to specialize in the field ...

  • Nonlinear Time Series Analysis in the Geosciences

    The understanding of dynamical processes in the complex system “Earth” requires the appropriate analysis of a large amount of data from observations and/or model simulations. In this volume, modern nonlinear approaches are introduced and used to study specifiic questions relevant to present-day geoscience. The approaches include spatio-temporal ...
