  • Earthquakesby W R Matson

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2016; US$ 28.00

    This book is an introduction to wave dynamics as they apply to earthquakes, among the scariest, most unpredictable, and deadliest natural phenomena on Earth. Since studying seismic activity is essentially a study of wave dynamics, this text starts with a discussion of types and representations, including wave-generation mechanics, superposition, and... more...

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 165.36

    This volume contains the proceedings of 24 peer-reviewed papers presented at the 3rd International Gravity Field Service (IGFS) General Assembly, which was organized by the International Gravity Field Service (IGFS), Commission 2 of the International Association of Geodesy (IAG), and Shanghai Astronomical Observatory (SHAO), Chinese Academy of Sciences.... more...

  • Data Assimilation for the Geosciencesby Steven James Fletcher

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 150.00

    Data Assimilation for the Geosciences: From Theory to Application brings together all of the mathematical,statistical, and probability background knowledge needed to formulate data assimilation systems in one place. It includes practical exercises for understanding theoretical formulation and presents some aspects of coding the theory with a toy... more...

  • Basic Principles of Induction Loggingby Alex A. Kaufman; Gregory Itskovich

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 200.00

    Basic Principles of Induction Logging provides geoscientists with the information required to survey the electrical conductivity of rocks surrounding a borehole. The formation conductivity distribution in the borehole vicinity is critical information required in formation evaluation and geosteering applications. Developing a theory of EM logging... more...

  • Bioenergy and Land Use Changeby Qin Zhangcai; Mishra Umakant; Hastings Astley

    Wiley 2017; US$ 169.95 US$ 152.96

    Although bioenergy is a renewable energy source, it is not without impact on the environment. Both the cultivation of crops specifically for use as biofuels and the use of agricultural byproducts to generate energy changes the landscape, affects ecosystems, and impacts the climate. Bioenergy and Land Use Change focuses on regional and global assessments... more...

  • Geodynamics of the Latin American Pacific Marginby William L. Bandy; Juanjo Dañobeitia; Carlos Mortera Gutiérrez; Yuri Taran; Rafael Bartolomé

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 62.59

    Geodynamics of the Latin American Pacific Margin presents a collection of 22 studies by a multinational group of investigators whose common interest is to better understand the complex geodynamic processes occurring along the Pacific margin of Latin America and the impact that these processes have on the local populace.  Processes investigated... more...

  • Seismic Forward Modeling of Fractures and Fractured Medium Inversionby Xiaoqin Cui; Laurence Lines; Edward Stephen Krebes; Suping Peng

    Springer Singapore 2017; US$ 118.11

    This detailed book systematically investigates subsurface geological fractures using rock mechanics, geology, and geophysics. Based on geological fracture mechanisms and fracture boundary conditions, it presents new finite-difference equations for the simulation of seismic wave responses to geological fractures, and proposes innovative AVO inversion... more...
