Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills

Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills

Someone once told me “Mountaineering is just like backpacking with less margin for error”. Of course the reality is that there are additional skills, concepts, and so on that you absolutely need to know before hauling yourself onto a rock face or glacier. This book contains all of that – the accumulated wealth of knowledge […]

Meeting Challenges with Geologic Maps (2004)

Meeting Challenges with Geologic Maps (2004)

Geologic maps are our most important and complete compilation of information about the solid Earth we live on, and we cannot understand the Earth without them. Meeting Challenges with Geologic Maps presents 16 examples that show how geologic maps are helping to delineate fragile habitat and ecosystems, protect against natural hazards (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides […]

Paleomagnetism, Volume 73, Second Edition: Continents and Oceans (International Geophysics)

Paleomagnetism, Volume 73, Second Edition: Continents and Oceans (International Geophysics)

Paleomagnetism is the study of the fossil magnetism in rocks. It has been paramount in determining that the continents have drifted over the surface of the Earth throughout geological time. The fossil magnetism preserved in the ocean floor has demonstrated how continental drift takes place through the process of sea-floor spreading. The methods and techniques […]

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 […]

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 […]
