  • Pyrometamorphismby Rodney Grapes

    Springer 2010; US$ 209.00

    Pyrometamorphism occurs at very high temperatures (800 - > 1000 C) and low pressures (< 2 kb) and typically results in the formation of "burnt" and fused rocks termed buchites, paralavas, clinkers and fulgarites. It is typically associated with shallow basaltic intrusions (contact aureoles, xenoliths,) combustion of carbonaceous matter,... more...

  • Minerals of the mercury ore deposit Idriaby Aleksander Recnik

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    The present work is the first comprehensive study of mineralogy of the world's second largest mercury mine Idria. In the first chapter the readers are acquainted with the history of mining and its relation to mineralogy. Mineralogy is explained in terms of geological processes that were active during the formation of the ore deposit. Among these,... 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...

  • Mineralogieby Martin Okrusch; Siegfried Matthes

    Springer 2005; US$ 39.95

    Diese Einführung in die spezielle Mineralogie, Petrologie und Lagerstättenkunde auf genetischer Grundlage konzentriert sich auf wesentliche Lehrinhalte des Fachgebiets. Grundkenntnisse in der allgemeinen Mineralogie und Kristallographie sowie in Physik, Chemie und allgemeiner Geologie werden vorausgesetzt. Zahlreiche Hinweise auf die technische... more...

  • Proceedings of 10th International Kimberlite Conferenceby D Graham Pearson; Herman S Grütter; Jeff W Harris; Bruce A Kjarsgaard; Hugh O?Brien; N V Chalapathi Rao; Steven Sparks

    Springer 2013; US$ 259.00

    International Kimberlite Conferences (IKCs) are special events that are held across the world once in four to five years. IKC is the confluence platform for academicians, scientists and industrial personnel concerned with diamond exploration and exploitation, petrology, geochemistry, geochronology, geophysics and origin of the primary diamond host... more...

  • Environmental and Low Temperature Geochemistryby Peter Ryan

    Wiley 2014; US$ 61.95

    Environmental and Low-Temperature Geochemistry presents conceptual and quantitative principles of geochemistry in order to foster understanding of natural processes at and near the earth’s surface, as well as anthropogenic impacts on  the natural environment.  It provides the reader with the essentials of concentration, speciation... more...

  • Trap Magmatism and Ore Formation in the Siberian Noril'sk Regionby V.V. Ryabov; A.Ya. Shevko; M.P. Gora

    Springer 2014; US$ 115.00

    The basis of this investigation is the petrographic and geochemical understanding of principal igneous rock types of the Noril?sk region, in order to demonstrate that these data provide unique and self-evident solutions to the problems of petrogenesis and mineralization. The results of the investigations are presented in two volumes: the first includes... more...

  • Mineralsby David Vaughan

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 7.99

    Minerals existed long before any forms of life, playing a key role in the origin and evolution of life; an interaction with biological systems that we are only now beginning to understand. Exploring the traditional strand of mineralogy, which emphasises the important mineral families, the well-established analytical methods (optical microscopy and... more...

  • Archean Crustal Evolutionby K.C. Condie

    Elsevier Science 1994; US$ 72.95

    The integration of Tectonics/Geochemistry, up-to-date reviews by leading scientists as well as a broad topical coverage of the Archean, are some of the features of this particular volume. As geochronology has progressed in the last 20 years, the Archean has continued to attract interest. Advancements in the understanding of Archean crustal and mantle... more...
