  • A Petroleum Geologist's Guide to Seismic Reflectionby William Ashcroft

    Wiley 2011; US$ 164.95

    This book is written for advanced earth science students, geologists, petroleum engineers and others who want to get quickly ‘up to speed’ on the interpretation of reflection seismic data. It is a development of material given to students on the MSc course in Petroleum Geology at Aberdeen University and takes the form of a course manual... more...

  • Dyke Swarmsby Rajesh K. Srivastava

    Springer 2011; US$ 279.00

    Dykes occur in a wide variety of geological and tectonic settings and their detailed study through space and time is imperative for understanding several geological events. Dykes are believed to be an integral part of continental rifting and when they occur as spatially extensive swarms of adequate size, they can be of immense utility in continental... more...

  • Accretionary Prisms and Convergent Margin Tectonics in the Northwest Pacific Basinby Yujiro Ogawa; Ryo Anma; Yildirim Dilek

    Springer 2011; US$ 179.00

    Accretionary prisms in convergent margins are natural laboratories for exploring initial orogenic processes and mountain building episodes. They are also an important component of continental growth both vertically and laterally. Accretionary prisms are seismically highly active and their internal deformation via megathrusting and out-of-sequence faulting... more...

  • Geology of North Africaby Edward Tawadros

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 273.00

    A reference volume on the geology of North Africa, this volume deals with Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco. In great detail the geology, tectonic elements, the geology of the Pan-African Shield, the Phanerozoic geological evolution and most of the lithostratigrahpic units of the five countries are described. Moreover, the petroleum geology... more...

  • VII Hotine-Marussi Symposium on Mathematical Geodesyby Nico Sneeuw; Pavel NovŠk; Mattia Crespi; Fernando SansÚ

    Springer 2012; US$ 299.00

    The Hotine-Marussi Symposium is the core meeting of a "think thank", a group scientists in the geodetic environment working on theoretical and methodological subjects, while maintaining the foundations of geodesy to the proper level by corresponding to the strong advancements improved by technological development in the field of ICT, electronic computing,... more...

  • Distal Impact Ejecta Layersby Billy P. Glass; Bruce M. Simonson

    Springer 2009; US$ 179.00

    Impact cratering is an important geological process on all solid planetary bodies, and, in the case of Earth, may have had major climatic and biological effects. Most terrestrial impact craters have been erased or modified beyond recognition. However, major impacts throw ejecta over large areas of the Earth's surface. Recognition of these impact... more...

  • MHD Flows in Compact Astrophysical Objectsby Vasily S. Beskin

    Springer 2009; US$ 149.00

    Accretion flows, winds and jets of compact astrophysical objects and stars are generally described within the framework of hydrodynamical and magnetohydrodynamical (MHD) flows. Analytical analysis of the problem provides profound physical insights, which are essential for interpreting and understanding the results of numerical simulations. Providing... more...

  • Reference Frames for Applications in Geosciencesby Zuheir Altamimi; Xavier Collilieux

    Springer 2012; US$ 199.00

    Reference systems and frames are of primary importance for many Earth science applications, satellite navigation as well as for practical applications in geo-information. A precisely defined reference frame is needed for the quantification of, e.g. Earth rotation and its gravity field, global and regional sea level variation, tectonic motion and deformation,... more...

  • Plate Deformation from Cradle to Graveby Andy Nowacki

    Springer 2013; US$ 139.00

    The Earth's rocky mantle convects to lose heat, which comes from the liquid iron core below.  The mantle's interfaces - the core-mantle boundary, and the lithosphere - may hold the key to understanding mantle motion because of the seismic anisotropy present in these parts of the Earth.  In this thesis, Andy Nowacki presents a precise... more...

  • Magnificent Principiaby Colin Pask

    Prometheus Books 2013; US$ 12.99

    Nobel laureate Steven Weinberg has written that "all that has happened since 1687 is a gloss on the Principia ." Now you too can appreciate the significance of this stellar work, regarded by many as the greatest scientific contribution of all time. Despite its dazzling reputation, Isaac Newton's Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica , or simply... more...
