Mineralogy

  • Isotope Geochemistryby William M. White

    Wiley 2014; US$ 74.50

    This book provides a comprehensive introduction to radiogenic and stable isotope geochemistry. Beginning with a brief overview of nuclear physics and nuclear origins, it then reviews radioactive decay schemes and their use in geochronology. A following chapter covers the closely related techniques such as fission-track and carbon-14 dating. Subsequent... more...

  • Large Igneous Provincesby Richard E. Ernst

    Cambridge University Press 2014; US$ 104.00

    Explores all aspects of LIPs as key processes in shaping our planet, for researchers, graduate students and mining industry professionals. 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...

  • Understanding an Orogenic Beltby Ashok Dubey

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    The book provides a model for the structural evolution of the Himalaya with relevant background information making it easily accessible to earth scientists specializing in other areas. The book is divided into two parts: The first part describes the basic principles of structural geology that are required to understand the evolutionary model described... 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...

  • Geomathematics: Theoretical Foundations, Applications and Future Developmentsby Frits Agterberg

    Springer 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book provides a wealth of geomathematical case history studies performed by the author during his career at the Ministry of Natural Resources Canada, Geological Survey of Canada (NRCan-GSC). Several of the techniques newly developed by the author and colleagues that are described in this book have become widely adopted, not only for further research... more...

  • Modelling of Magmatic and Allied Processesby Santosh Kumar; Rishi Narain Singh

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Modeling of Magmatic and Allied Processes?presents?methods and models for the quantification of geological processes. Conceptual models for magmatic differentiation involving crystallization and mixing are presented and applied to field and textural data. Model equations for the degree of partial melting in presence perturbations of lithospheric geotherms... 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...

    Springer 2014; US$ 19.99

    Das vorliegende Buch vermittelt einen leicht verstandlichen Uberblick uber das Gebiet der Petrographie. Einsteiger werden nicht durch theoretisches Detailwissen uberfordert oder gar abgeschreckt, sondern erlangen schnell ein Grundwissen in- Mineralogie mit den wichtigsten gesteinsbildenden Mineralen,- Petrographie mit den haufigsten Gesteinen,- technischer... more...

  • Introduction to the Thermodynamically Constrained Averaging Theory for Porous Medium Systemsby William G. Gray; Cass T. Miller

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Thermodynamically constrained averaging theory provides a consistent method for upscaling conservation and thermodynamic equations for application in the study of porous medium systems. The method provides dynamic equations for phases, interfaces, and common curves that are closely based on insights from the entropy inequality.?All larger scale variables... more...
