High Resolution Morphodynamics and Sedimentary Evolution of by Duncan M. FitzGerald, Jasper Knight

By Duncan M. FitzGerald, Jasper Knight

This publication makes a speciality of using high-resolution geophysical options, box observations and modeling to enquire the morphodynamics of estuaries on either glaciated and non-glaciated coasts and on assorted time scales. Papers during this booklet supply a brand new method of nearshore and estuary experiences, with an emphasis on multidisciplinary innovations and knowledge integration. result of those reports have vital implications for estuary source administration and coastline balance. This publication could be of curiosity to sedimentologists, coastal and Quaternary geologists, environmental scientists, and coastal managers.

Advances in High-Pressure Techniques for Geophysical Applications

High-pressure mineral physics is a box that's strongly pushed by way of the improvement of latest expertise. Fifty years in the past, while experimentally attainable pressures have been constrained to only 25 GPa, little was once find out about the mineralogy of the Earth's decrease mantle. Silicate perovskite, the most likely dominant mineral of the deep Earth, used to be pointed out in simple terms while the high-pressure concepts broke the strain barrier of 25 GPa in Nineteen Seventies.

Sample Preparation Handbook for Transmission Electron Microscopy: Methodology

This two-volume instruction manual is a complete and authoritative advisor to pattern practise for the transmission electron microscope. this primary quantity covers normal theoretical and sensible elements of the methodologies used for TEM research and remark of any pattern. the knowledge can help you to settle on the simplest preparative strategy on your program bearing in mind fabric forms, constructions, and their houses.

Principles of Petroleum Reservoir Engineering

Quantity 1 of this publication handled the recommendations in the back of the purchase, processing and interpretation of simple reservoir facts. This moment vol­ ume is dedicated to the examine, verification and prediction of reservoir behaviour, and techniques of accelerating productiveness and oil restoration. I should still prefer to convey a number of issues to the reader's cognizance.

Catalogue of Meteorites from South America

The 1st Catalogue of Meteorites from South the United States comprises new specimens by no means formerly said, whereas uncertain situations and pseudometeorites were intentionally passed over. The falling of those gadgets is a random occasion, however the websites the place previous meteorites are came upon are usually concentrated in definite parts, e.
