  • Quartz Cementation in Sandstones (Special Publication 29 of the IAS)by

    Wiley 2009; US$ 103.00

    Quartz is the major porosity-reducing cement in many sandstone sequences. Therefore, Quartz cements represent a key source of petrographic and geochemical information about diagenetic history. They are also the major determinant of sandstone reservoir quality. While the ultimate goal of research in this area is to make robust predictions about the... more...

  • Clay Mineral Cements in Sandstonesby Richard Worden; Sadoon Morad

    Wiley 2009; US$ 230.00

    Clay minerals are one of the most important groups of minerals that destroy permeability in sandstones. However, they also react with drilling and completion fluids and induce fines migration during hydrocarbon production. They are a very complex family of minerals that are routinely intergrown with each other, contain a wide range of solid solutions... more...

  • Dolomitesby B. H. Purser; M. E. Tucker; D. H. Zenger

    Wiley 2009; US$ 150.00

    This volume contains 23 state-of-the-art papers presented at the Dolomieu Conference on Carbonate Platforms and Dolomitization held in September 1991 in Ortisei, Italy. The conference was co-sponsored by the International Association of Sedimentologists (IAS) and the Society for Sedimentary Geology (SEPM), and marked the 200th anniversary of the 1791... more...

  • Biomineralizationby Roland K. O. Sigel; Astrid Sigel; Helmut Sigel

    Wiley 2008; US$ 460.00

    Biomineralization is a hot topic in the area of materials, and this volume in the Metals Ions in Life Sciences series takes a systematic approach, dealing with all aspects from the fundamentals to applications. Key biological features of biomineralization, such as gene directed growth and the role of enzymes are covered, as are new areas, including... more...

  • Ore Texturesby Roger Taylor

    Springer 2010; US$ 179.00

    Understanding ore textures is fundamental to understanding the genesis of an ore deposit, which in turn allows exploration and mining geologists to build their conceptual understanding of the deposits they encounter. This book covers the basic building blocks of textural recognition beginning with infill, alteration and overprinting. more...

  • Recent Advances in the Science and Technology of Zeolites and Related Materialsby E. van Steen; L.H. Callanan; M. Claeys

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 165.00

  • 2001, A Clay Odysseyby E. Dominguez; G. Mas; F. Cravero

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 315.00

    The meeting was organized by a local university committee and 205 delegates from 35 countries took part. European participation was low due to the economic crisis experienced by national air lines. During the conference, the AIPEA medals were awarded to Gerhard Lagaly and Tom Pinnavaia. This volume of the Conference Proceedings contains 85 out of... more...

  • Ultrahigh Pressure Metamorphismby Robert G. Coleman; Xiaomin Wang

    Cambridge University Press 1995; US$ 73.00

    This book examines the geological aspects of the ultrahigh pressure minerals - diamond and coesite - in the Earth's crust. more...

  • Proceedings of the 37th International Symposium on Archaeometryby Isabella Turbanti-Memmi

    Springer 2011; US$ 479.00

    The book contains the Proceedings of the 37th International Symposium on Archaeometry, 12th May 2008, Siena, Italy. The aim of the Symposium is to promote the development and use of scientific techniques in order to extract archaeological and historical information from cultural heritage and the paleoenvironment. It involves all Natural Sciences and... more...

  • Gossans and Leached Cappingsby Roger Taylor

    Springer 2011; US$ 129.00

    This text concentrates upon field observations concerning leached cappings and gossans, occurring as oxidised surface expressions of underlying ore zones. Although the advent of modern multielement geochemical sampling and easier mechanical excavation assist considerably in subsurface interpretation, there are still many occasions where the first observation... more...
