Geology of the USSR: A Plate-Tectonic Synthesis by Lev P. Zonenshain, Michael I. Kuzmin, Lev M. Natapov,

By Lev P. Zonenshain, Michael I. Kuzmin, Lev M. Natapov, Benjamin M. Page

About The Product

Published by means of the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Geodynamics Series.

The Soviet Union contains approximately one-seventh of the land zone on the earth, and Soviet geologists probably quantity greater than one-seventh of the world's geologists. in addition, Soviet geologists are most likely significantly extra conversant in the geological literature of North the US and western Europe than the geologists from these areas are with the literature of the Soviet Union.

General summaries of Soviet geology in English were on hand, yet they're rather previous by means of now and don't replicate the more moderen theoretical advancements within the technological know-how, particularly the plate-tectonic paradigm. Zonenshain, Kuzmin, and Natapov have mastered that paradigm and are completely accustomed to its ramifications; among them also they are acquainted with so much components in their sizeable state.

Earthquakes in the Mediterranean and Middle East: A by Nicholas Ambraseys

By Nicholas Ambraseys

This e-book examines ancient facts from the final 2000 years to research earthquakes within the japanese Mediterranean and center East. Early chapters evaluate innovations of historic seismology, whereas the most physique of the publication contains a catalog of greater than 4000 earthquakes pointed out from ancient resources. each one occasion is supported by way of textual facts extracted from fundamental resources and translated into English. overlaying southern Romania, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Iraq, the publication records earlier seismic occasions, locations them in a extensive tectonic framework, and offers crucial details for these trying to organize for, and mitigate the results of, destiny earthquakes and tsunamis in those international locations. This quantity is an essential reference for researchers learning the seismic heritage of the japanese Mediterranean and center East, together with archaeologists, historians, earth scientists, engineers and earthquake chance analysts. A parametric catalog of those seismic occasions may be downloaded from www.cambridge.org/9780521872928.

Atlas of Antarctica: Topographic Maps from Geostatistical by Ute Christina Herzfeld

By Ute Christina Herzfeld

Although it really is mostly understood that the Antarctic Ice Sheet performs a severe position within the altering worldwide approach, so far there's a normal loss of available info at the topic. The Atlas of Antarctica is the 1st atlas at the 7th continent to be released in twenty years. It comprises a hundred forty five exact topographic and elevation maps derived from satellite tv for pc facts (GEOSAT and ERS-1 radar altimeter data), that are the simplest in their variety to be had at the present time. each one map is observed by means of an outline of geographic and glaciological features.

The introductory chapters familiarise the reader with the area of the Antarctic Ice Sheet and its function within the worldwide approach, in addition to discussing satellite tv for pc distant sensing and geo-statistical equipment at textbook point. purposes comprise distinctive nearby experiences of 15 outlet glaciers of the inland ice, a few of that are at present altering speedily. combos with SAR information facilitate the examine of floor buildings and circulate features.

Despite its state of the art clinical accuracy, the Atlas of Antarctica isn't just meant to be used via researchers and scholars in glaciology, geophysics, distant sensing, cartography and Antarctic examine, but in addition informative and stress-free for any reader attracted to the 7th continent. The Atlas is followed by means of a CD-ROM containing the entire atlas maps and elevation types – permitting the reader to find a wealth of interesting information in Antarctica!

Morphotectonics by Adrian E. Scheidegger

By Adrian E. Scheidegger

Morphotectonics, the relation among geomorphology and (neo)tectonics is key to the knowledge of panorama evolution. Stressing usually the quantitative interpretation of box observations, this monograph compares the morphological constitution of drainage structures, river classes, glacial types, volcanic landscapes and mass hobbies with joint orientations. The latter are indicative of the neotectonic stresses; and hence inferences at the genesis of the morphological varieties could be drawn. the knowledge on outcrops on all six continents and on islands in all significant oceans were received to a wide quantity via the writer himself. The e-book, for this reason, represents a first-hand account of the paintings and its relevance which has been performed around the globe over the past 30 years.

Deep Drilling Results in the Atlantic Ocean: Continental by Manik Talwani, William Hay, William B. F. Ryan

By Manik Talwani, William Hay, William B. F. Ryan

About The Product

Published by way of the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Maurice Ewing Series.

The moment Maurice Ewing Symposium used to be dedicated to the consequences of deep drilling leads to the Atlantic Ocean. This topic used to be selected for 2 purposes. First, Maurice Ewing was once one of many leaders of JOIDES (Joint Oceanographic associations For Deep Earth Sampling), the organization of oceanographic associations that was once shaped to arrange and sponsor drilling within the deep ocean, and which has persisted to supply clinical suggestion to the Deep Sea Drilling venture. moment, the 1st part of overseas application of Ocean Drilling within the Atlantic used to be accomplished and it appeared a great time to evaluate the consequences of drilling leads to the Atlantic that have been got over nearly a decade.

The self-potential method : theory and applications in by André Revil; Abderrahim Jardani

By André Revil; Abderrahim Jardani

The self-potential strategy permits non-intrusive review and imaging of disturbances in electric currents of conductive subsurface fabrics. It has increasingly more functions, from mapping fluid movement within the subsurface of the Earth to detecting preferential movement paths in earth dams and embankments. This publication offers the 1st complete review of the basic ideas of this system and its purposes within the box. It discusses a old standpoint, laboratory investigations undertaken, the inverse challenge, and seismoelectric coupling, and concludes with the applying of the self-potential solution to geohazards, water assets and hydrothermal structures. bankruptcy workouts and on-line datasets and analytical software program let the reader to place the speculation in perform. This publication is a key reference for educational researchers and execs operating within the parts of geophysics, environmental technology, hydrology, and geotechnical engineering. it is going to even be worthy examining for comparable graduate classes
