DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

A condensed version of Geology, 3e, this textbook provides succinct, focused explanations of key points-ideal for those who require a basic introduction to the field. As in the past, the Third Edition successfully engages students by concentrating on dynamic geologic processes rather than on rote memorisation of key terms. Three themes (plate tectonics, environmental geology and natural resources, and planetary geology) appear repeatedly throughout the text to highlight the connections between core concepts. Highlights of this third edition include: - New! Text design is more visually appealing, and more effective in communicating core concepts of geology to students - New! Geology at a Glance features use flow charts, figures and photos to visually summarise difficult concepts in a succinct manner, recognising that many students are visual learners - New! Coverage of Earth Systems is integrated throughout the text - New! Highlights Boxes, which link applications of the geology being studied to situations that are recognisable to students, are now categorised as Environmental, Earth System Science, or Application/Everyday Interest and have been substantially revised - New!Chapter Summaries are shorter than in previous editions allowing a quicker review - New! Superior technology package offers both students and instructors a multitude of resources to facilitate learning and teaching

Release: 2017-12-12
Editor: CRC Press

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This practical guidebook provides a basic grounding in the principles of geology and explains how to apply them. Using this book, readers will be able to figure out whether they are standing on an ancient seafloor, coal swamp, or sand dune. They will be able to determine the geologic hazards in their neighborhood, where to look for fossils and minerals, or where best to drill a water well. In plain English, The Geology Companion sheds light on the processes that shape the earth and how geology affects people in their daily lives.

Editor: Springer Science & Business Media

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Medical Geology is a rapidly growing field concerned with the relationship between natural geological factors and human and animal health, as well as with improving our understanding of the influence of environmental factors on the geographical distribution of health problems. This book brings together the work of geoscientists and medical/public health researchers, which addresses health problems caused, or exacerbated by geological materials (rocks, minerals, atmospheric dust and water) and processes (including volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. Among the environmental health problems discussed in this book are: exposure to toxic levels of trace essential and non-essential elements such as arsenic and mercury; trace element deficiencies; exposure to natural dusts and to radioactivity; naturally occurring organic compounds in drinking water; volcanic emissions, etc. The text also deals with the many health benefits of geologic materials and processes. This wide-ranging volume covers issues in medical geology all over the world with each author covering their respective region. It provides examples from different continents as well as a state-of-the-art review of the latest developments in the discipline. The authors are all recognized geoscientific and medical experts working in the field. The book is written for a wide variety of specialists from geologists, geochemists, pathologists and medical doctors to veterinarians and biologists.

Release: 2013-07-04
Editor: Cambridge University Press

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Mapping closely to how ore deposit geology is now taught, this textbook systematically describes and illustrates the major ore deposit types, linking this to their settings in the crust and the geological factors behind their formation. Written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students with a basic background in the geosciences, it provides a balance of practical information and coverage of the relevant geological sciences, including petrological, geochemical, hydrological and tectonic processes. Important theory is summarized without unnecessary detail and integrated with students' learning in other topics, including magmatic processes and sedimentary geology, enabling students to make links across the geosciences. Students are supported by further reading, a comprehensive glossary, and problems and review questions that test the application of theoretical approaches and encourage students to use what they have learnt. A website includes visual resources and combines with the book to provide students and instructors with a complete learning package.
