They should allow the reader to comment on new results about plate tectonics, marine sedimentation from the coasts to the deep sea, climatological aspects, paleoceanology and the use of the sea floor. The text tries to transmit to the reader excitement of marine geological research both aboard and in modern...
London has many rivers, but they are often hidden under centuries of development. Rivers like the Walbrook, the Fleet or the Westbourne have left their mark on the city, and still form an important part of our subterranean world. David Fathers traces the course of twelve hidden rivers in a...
Analytical Modeling of Solute Transport in Groundwater: Using Models to Understand the Effect of Natural Processes on Contaminant Fate and Transport
By Mark Goltz
A strong teaching tool, this book goes well beyond previous endeavors in its ability to not only teach the models used in hydrogeology, but apply and understand their impacts.
By Nigel Holmes
Includes information about each of the huge variety of river-types to be found in Britain, discussion of individual examples both large and small, crucial insights into their maintenance and the dangers - felt so acutely in recent years across the UK - of their mismanagement.
This book presents the basics of the non-invasive geophysical method for groundwater investigation, called Magnetic Resonance Sounding MRS or Surface Nuclear Magnetic Resonance SNMR, and its practical application to the problems of groundwater localization and aquifer characterization.
By Lance Grande
The landscape of southwestern Wyoming around the ghost town of Fossil is beautiful but harsh. But during the early Eocene, more than fifty million years ago, it was a subtropical lake, surrounded by volcanoes and forests and teeming with life. Lavishly produced in full color, this title opens a window...
Climatic Change and Global Warming of Inland Waters: Impacts and Mitigation for Ecosystems and Societies
Effects of global warming on the physical, chemical, ecological structure and function and biodiversity of freshwater ecosystems are not well understood and there are many opinions on how to adapt aquatic environments to global warming in order to minimize the negative effects of climate change.
This book details an array of numerical and statistical techniques used in palaeolimnology and other branches of palaeoecology, including exploratory data analysis, error estimation, clustering, ordination and modern statistical learning techniques.
This ethnography of a river restoration project in Kathmandu, Nepals capital and one of the fastest-growing cities in Southeast Asia, contributes to the nascent anthropology of urban environments.
