Stress and Deformation: A Handbook on Tensors in Geology

Stress and Deformation: A Handbook on Tensors in Geology

Students of geology who may have only a modest background in mathematics need to become familiar with the theories of stress, strain, and other tensor quantities, so that they can follow, and apply to their own research, developments in modern, quantitative geology. This book, based on a course taught by the author at UCLA, can […]

Planetary geology : a teacher's guide with activities in physical and earth sciences

Planetary geology : a teacher's guide with activities in physical and earth sciences

This book is the second edition of NASASP-179, first printed in 1982. It has been updated to take into account planetary missions that have flown throughout the solar system since the first edition. Both editions are outgrowths of various short courses in Planetary Geology that have been held over the last two decades, and from […]

Periglacial and Paraglacial Processes and Environments (Geological Society Special Publication, 320) By J Knight, S Harrison

Periglacial and Paraglacial Processes and Environments (Geological Society Special Publication, 320) By J Knight, S Harrison

Periglacial and paraglacial environments, located outside ice sheet margins but responding to similar climate forcings, are key to identifying climate change effects upon the Earth system. These environments are relicts of cold Earth processes and so are most sensitive to global warming. Changes in the distribution and thickness of permafrost in continental interiors have implications […]

Zircon (Reviews in Mineralogy and Geochemistry, vol. 53)

Zircon (Reviews in Mineralogy and Geochemistry, vol. 53)

In the two decades since “Orthosilicates” (Reviews in Mineralogy, Vol. 5), much has been learned about the internal textures, trace-element and isotope geochemistry (both radiogenic and stable) and chemical and mechanical stability of zircon. The application of this knowledge and the use of zircon in geologic studies have become widespread. Today, the study of zircon […]

Acoustic Sensing Techniques for the Shallow Water Environment

Acoustic Sensing Techniques for the Shallow Water Environment

This volume contains the collection of papers from the second workshop on Experimental Acoustic Inversion Techniques for Exploration of the Shallow Water Environment. The workshop theme followed the original concept of the first workshop, held in Carvoeiro, Portugal, in 1999, i.e., to focus on experiments and experimental techniques for acoustic sensing in the shallow ocean. […]

Early Palaeozoic Peri-Gondwana Terranes: New Insights from Tectonics and Biogeography

Early Palaeozoic Peri-Gondwana Terranes: New Insights from Tectonics and Biogeography

Following the late Neoproterozoic – early Cambrian breakup of the supercontinent Rodinia, Gondwana evolved as one of the principal continental masses on Earth, embracing most of South America, Africa, Australasia, Antarctica, much of western Europe and parts of Asia. Around its margins were various other terranes that had varying tectonic and biogeographical affinities with the […]
