    Sedimentology has seen many significant advances and changes over the past 40 years, ranging from facies modelling to sequence stratigraphy; chemostratigraphy to basin analysis; and the integration of studies of physical, chemical and, increasingly, biological processes in the interpretation and prediction of sedimentary environments and products.... more...

    Wiley 2009; US$ 185.95

    Low-Grade Metamorphism explores processes and transformations in rocks during the early stages of metamorphic recrystallization.

  • Elements of Ecological Economicsby Jan Otto Andersson; Ralf Eriksson

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 63.95

    Colourless, tasteless, odourless, ageless: water is both the simplest thing on earth and the most complex. We cannot live without it yet it kills six thousand children a day. It is the ultimate renewable resource but we pollute it without thinking twice. Why, if water is so valuable does nobody want to pay for it unless it comes in a designer bottle?... more...

    Six contributors explore the role of governments in accelerating the rate of forest destruction by providing direct and indirect subsidies to support what would otherwise be non-commercial logging operations.
