  • Tectonics and the Formation of Magmasby Yu. M. Sheinmann

    Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00

    It is a pleasure to any author to enlarge the circle of his readers. Naturally this is a pleasure to me. At the same time, however, misgivings arise: whether these pages will con­ vey to the circle of new readers the thoughts that excite the author. Science is advancing rapidly in our day. It is already apparent that many things in the book should... more...

  • Bergbaumechanikby Josef Maercks; Walter Ostermann

  • Sedimentary Carbonate Mineralsby F. Lippmann

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 149.00

    and their identification obviates individual thermochemical studies on every genus. The stability relations among sedimentary carbonate minerals are now more or less well known. The common rock-forming minerals cal­ cite and dolomite are indeed stable phases in the pertinent systems. Most other carbonate minerals of similar composition which are known... more...

  • Rutley?s Elements of Mineralogyby Frank Rutley

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

    The last thorough revision of Rutley's Elements of Mineralogy appeared as the 23rd Edition in 1936. In subsequent editions, an effort to keep abreast with the great progress in the science was made by small (and often awkward) modifications and, especially, by the addition of an independent chapter on the atomic structure of minerals. For this present... more...

  • Atmospheric Tidesby S. Chapman; R.S. Lindzen

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

    Everyone is familiar with the daily changes of air temperature. The barometer shows that these are accompanied by daily changes of mass distribution of the atmosphere, and consequently with daily motions of the air. In the tropics the daily pressure change is evident on the barographs; in temperate and higher latitudes it is not noticeable, being overwhelmed... more...

  • The Scientific World of Copernicusby

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 183.00

    On February 19, 1973, five centuries have elapsed since the birth of Nicolaus Coperni­ cus - the greatest astronomer of the Renaissance period - who rediscovered for us the heliocentric model of the solar system, and documented it by his life's work in such a manner as to make its concept a permanent property of mankind. The life of Copernicus, extending... more...

  • Physicochemical Methods of Mineral Analysisby A. Nicol

    Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00

    This book has developed from a short residential course organised by the Department of Minerals Engineering and the Department of Extra Mural Studies of the University of Birmingham. The course was concerned mainly with physical methods of analysis of minerals and mineral products, and particular regard was given to 'non-destructive' methods, with... more...

  • Feldspar Mineralsby J.V. Smith

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 129.00

    33 14. 3. 5 REE between Plagioclase and Aqueous Fluid 0 Cullers et al. (1973) measured the distribution of REE at 850 C and 750 bars pressure between a natural plagioclase, An , and gaseous water. The rare earths 65 favored the plagioclase by a factor which varies from about 25 for Ce to 10 for Lu. Data were also obtained for forsterite, diopside,... more...
