Minerals of the mercury ore deposit Idria
Minerals of the mercury ore deposit Idria

The present work is the first comprehensive study of mineralogy of the world's second largest mercury mine Idria. In the first chapter the readers are acquainted with the history of mining and its relation to mineralogy. Mineralogy is explained in terms of geological processes that were active during the formation of the ore deposit....

Exploring the Moon: The Apollo Expeditions (Springer Praxis Books / Space Exploration)
Exploring the Moon: The Apollo Expeditions (Springer Praxis Books / Space Exploration)

David Harland opens with a review of the robotic probes, namely the Rangers which returned television before crashing into the Moon, the Surveyors which 'soft landed' in order to investigate the nature of the surface, and the Lunar Orbiters which mapped prospective Apollo landing sites. He then outlines the historic landing by Apollo 11 in terms...

Reliability and Statistics in Geotechnical Engineering
Reliability and Statistics in Geotechnical Engineering

Probabilistic reasoning, statistical methods, and measures of engineering judgment are combined to develop a quantified approach for analyzing and managing risks in civil engineering systems and the applied earth sciences. The resulting risk analysis approach described in this book reflects an emerging trend in geotechnical engineering, natural...

THE MOST USEFUL TOOL IN ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY

This comprehensive, up-to-date reference offers chemists and chemical engineers detailed coverage of the full range of analytical methods, including all conventional wet and instrumental techniques. It also provides information on the preliminary operations of analysis,...

Optically Stimulated Luminescence Dosimetry
Optically Stimulated Luminescence Dosimetry

Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) has become the technique of choice for many areas of radiation dosimetry. The technique is finding widespread application in a variety of radiation dosimetry fields, including personal monitoring, environmental monitoring, retrospective dosimetry (including geological dating and accident dosimetry),...

Structural Geology Algorithms: Vectors and Tensors
Structural Geology Algorithms: Vectors and Tensors

State-of-the-art analysis of geological structures has become increasingly quantitative but traditionally, graphical methods are used in teaching. This innovative lab book provides a unified methodology for problem-solving in structural geology using linear algebra and computation. Assuming only limited mathematical training, the book begins...

How to Lie with Maps
How to Lie with Maps
Originally published to wide acclaim, this lively, cleverly illustrated essay on the use and abuse of maps teaches us how to evaluate maps critically and promotes a healthy skepticism about these easy-to-manipulate models of reality. Monmonier shows that, despite their immense value, maps lie. In fact, they must.

Fuzzy Logic: A Spectrum of Theoretical & Practical Issues (Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing)

This book exclusively surveys the active on-going research of the current maturity of fuzzy logic over the last four decades. Many world leaders of fuzzy logic have enthusiastically contributed their best research results into five theoretical, philosophical and fundamental sub areas and nine distinctive applications, including two PhD...

Image Analysis, Sediments and Paleoenvironments (Developments in Paleoenvironmental Research)
Image Analysis, Sediments and Paleoenvironments (Developments in Paleoenvironmental Research)
Image analysis is concerned with the extraction of quantitative information from images
captured in digital form (Fortey 1995). Visual information has always played an important
role in the Geosciences — indeed, many disciplines rely heavily on the content of
images, whether they are sketches drawn in the field, or descriptions

Geological Fluid Dynamics: Sub-surface Flow and Reactions
Geological Fluid Dynamics: Sub-surface Flow and Reactions
This book is the long-awaited successor to Owen Phillips's classic textbook, Flow and Reactions in Permeable Rocks, published in 1991. In the intervening 18 years between the two, significant advances have been made to our understanding of subterranean flow, especially through the vast amount of research into underground storage of nuclear waste...
