Applied Earth Science

Applied Earth Science (Trans. IMM B incorporating Proc. AusIMM) is devoted to the application of the earth sciences in the exploration, discovery, development and exploitation of mineral resources. Applied Earth Science's broad range of interest serves an international readership that includes industry exploration and mining geologists, and geosciences researchers, whose common concern is knowledge and use of the Earth's mineral resources.

Physics and Chemistry of Minerals

Physics and Chemistry of Minerals is an international journal devoted to publishing articles and short communications of physical or chemical studies on minerals or solids related to minerals.

Geology of Ore Deposits

Geology of Ore Deposits (Geologiya rudnykh mestorozhdenii) is one of the few special periodicals devoted to metallic and nonmetallic mineral resources and the conditions of their formation and distribution.

Engineering Geology: Principles and Practice

This text is directed at the heart of Engineering Geology where geology is used to identify potential problems arising from ground conditions. It describes how to investigate those conditions and to define an engineering response that will either avoid or reduce or even eliminate the problems revealed.

Geological Field Techniques

The understanding of Earth processes and environments over geological time is highly dependent upon both the experience that can only be gained through doing fieldwork, and the collection of reliable data and appropriate samples in the field. This textbook explains the main data gathering techniques used by geologists in the field and the reasons for these, with emphasis throughout on how to make effective field observations and record these in suitable formats.

Modern Approaches in Solid Earth Sciences

In order to contribute to these new developments, Springer is providing a new platform as a publication outlet. This new book series has been created to provide a broader and integrated scope by merging several existing, more specialized book series. The new series, entitled "Modern Approaches in Solid Earth Sciences" is a timely response to the above described trend and is aimed at providing a contemporary outlet for innovative integration of disciplinary approaches to problems and processes in Solid Earth Sciences.

Introduction to Ore-Forming Processes

Introduction to Ore-Forming Processes is the first senior undergraduate – postgraduate textbook to focus specifically on the multiplicity of geological processes that result in the formation of mineral deposits.

Introduction to Mineral Exploration, 2nd Edition

This new, up dated edition of Introduction to Mineral Exploration provides a comprehensive overview of all aspects of mineral exploration.
