Advances in High-Pressure Techniques for Geophysical Applications

High-pressure mineral physics is a box that's strongly pushed through the advance of recent know-how. Fifty years in the past, while experimentally plausible pressures have been constrained to simply 25 GPa, little was once learn about the mineralogy of the Earth's reduce mantle. Silicate perovskite, the most probably dominant mineral of the deep Earth, used to be pointed out basically while the high-pressure options broke the strain barrier of 25 GPa in Seventies.

Sample Preparation Handbook for Transmission Electron Microscopy: Methodology

This two-volume guide is a accomplished and authoritative advisor to pattern instruction for the transmission electron microscope. this primary quantity covers basic theoretical and useful facets of the methodologies used for TEM research and remark of any pattern. the data can help you to decide on the easiest preparative approach on your program considering fabric varieties, constructions, and their houses.

Principles of Petroleum Reservoir Engineering

Quantity 1 of this ebook handled the thoughts in the back of the purchase, processing and interpretation of easy reservoir information. 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 carry 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 contains new specimens by no means formerly mentioned, whereas uncertain circumstances and pseudometeorites were intentionally passed over. The falling of those items is a random occasion, however the websites the place previous meteorites are came upon are usually targeted in definite parts, e.

Example text

A subsequent version (EMMA3) formed the basis of the first commercial design by AEI Scientific Apparatus Ltd of Manchester, which appeared in 1969. Today, facilities for analysis of sub-micrometer areas are a standard option on most TEMs and the technique is reviewed in detail in Chapter 3. 5 and 10 g of material. Characteristic X-ray spectra, essentially identical with those generated by electron bombardment, are excited by illuminating the specimen with X-rays whose photon energy is higher than the binding energy of the K (or L) electrons in the elements to be determined in the sample.
