  • The Ocean of Truthby Henry William Menard

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 62.50

    Menard begins with the leading hypotheses (such as that the earth expands) and the supporting evidence for each. He traces the crucial work of the 1960s year by year as researchers debated hypotheses in correspondence and at frequent meetings. Throughout the book Professor Menard considers the implications of his story for the sociology of science... more...

  • Controversy in Victorian Geologyby James A. Secord

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 61.50

    Secord gives a dazzlingly detailed account of this scientific trench warfare and its social consequences. One ends up with a marvellous feeling for the major taxonomic enterprises in Darwin's younger day: mapping, ordering, conquering 'taming the chaos" of the strata. All of these of course had social and imperial ramifications; and Secord mentions... more...

  • The Anatomy of Mountain Rangesby Jean-Paul Schaer; John Rodgers

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 50.00

    Focusing on mountain ranges that are relatively unfamiliar to most geologists, this work expands our view of tectonics beyond a standardized textbook approach and illustrates both the extraordinary variety of mountain ranges over the world through time and many of the basic similarities they display. Originally published in 1987. The Princeton... more...

  • Calcium and Magnesium in Groundwaterby Lidia Razowska-Jaworek

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 129.95

    Calcium and magnesium are abundant in groundwater, but the role of groundwater as the essential source of these important nutrients is very often neglected. Hydrogeochemical studies have focused mainly on the distribution and behaviour of constituents that cause deterioration of water quality, such as: nitrate, nitrite or iron and manganese. Therefore,... more...
