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.

Coal Geology

Coal Geology provides a complete integrated handbook on coal and all its properties, covering the physical and chemical properties of coal as well as coal petrology. It describes the age and occurence of coal; coal sampling and analysis; coal exploration; geophysics and hydrogeology of coal and coal mining techniques.

Foundation of Structural Geology

Since the first edition was published in 1983, this highly-regarded introductory textbook has been used by many generations of students worldwide. It is specifically tailored to the requirements of first or second year geology undergraduates.

European Coal Geology

This volume covers many aspects of European coal geology and illustrates the depth and breadth of research from sedimentological, geochemical and exploration models, to exploration drilling and economic evaluation of coal deposits, on a local and country-wide scale, as well as the environmental aspects of coal burning and disposal of CO2.

Sedimentary Rocks in the Field, 3rd Edition

This handy pocket-sized guide shows how to achieve successful fieldwork on sedimentary rocks, paying particular detail to the precision and accuracy of recording detail. Various sedimentary rock-types, textures and all the basic field techniques required are clearly described.

Elements of Petroleum Geology

This Second Edition of Elements of Petroleum Geology is completely updated and revised to reflect the vast changes in the field in the fifteen years since publication of the First Edition. This book is a usefulprimer for geophysicists, geologists, and petroleum engineers in the oil industry who wish to expand their knowledge beyond their specialized area.

Engineering Geology for Tomorrow's Cities

This book and the accompanying DVD provide a statement of our knowledge and understanding of engineering geology as applied to the urban environment at the start of the 21st century.

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.

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.

Sedimentary Rocks in the Field

Professionals and Students in geology, environmental sciences, ocean sciences, geochemistry and soil sciences; also for professionals in resource management, petroleum geology and more.

Great Basin Evolution and Metallogeny - DEStech Publications

This book comprises over 60 original and fully refereed technical presentations focused on geological analysis and testing of rocks, ores, minerals and elements correlated with gold mineralization and mining in the Great Basin region of the United States. Detailed geological data derived from advanced techniques is supplied for dozens of proven and currently explored mineral-rich areas in Nevada, California, Idaho, Utah, Washington and Alaska, as well as in Mexico and Chile.

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.

Fractured Reservoirs

Fractured reservoirs contain a significant proportion of the global hydrocarbon reserves; however, they commonly exhibit unpredictable and extreme production behaviour. To develop such reservoirs it is necessary to obtain the best understanding possible of the fracture network and its impact on the fluid flow within the reservoir, using the full range of geoscience and engineering datasets available at all scales.

Mineral Facts of China

Distributed by Elsevier Science on behalf of Science Press. Available internationally for the first time, this comprehensive text is a large scientific and authoritative databank in China's mineral facts.

Geological Engineering

Interpreting a geological setting for the purposes of engineering design and construction requires knowledge of geological engineering and engineering geology, leading to integrated engineering solutions which take into account both ground conditions and environment. This textbook, extensively illustrated, covers the subject area of geological engineering in four sections.

Foundations of Engineering Geology

Now in full colour, the third edition of this well established book provides a readable and highly illustrated overview of the aspects of geology that are most significant to civil engineers.

Geology for Civil Engineers

Preface to the second edition. Preface to the first edition. Introduction. Minerals and rocks. Superficial deposits. Distribution of rocks at and below the surface. Subsurface (ground) water. Geological exploration of an engineering site. Rocks and civil engineering. Principal geological factors affecting certain engineering projects.

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.

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.

Coal Systems Analysis

Coal is an important and required energy source for today's world. Current rates of world coal consumption are projected to continue at approximately the same (or greater) levels well into the twenty-first century. This collection of papers provides an introduction to the concept of coal systems analysis and contains examples of how coal systems analysis can be used to understand, characterize, and evaluate coal and coal gas resources. Coal systems analysis incorporates the various disciplines of coal geology to provide a complete characterization of the resource.

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.

Mineral Deposits and Earth Evolution

This volume contains research aimed both at understanding the origins of mineral deposits and at using mineral deposits as tools to explore different long-term Earth processes.

Engineering Geology

Every engineering structure, whether it's a building, bridge or road, is affected by the ground on which it is built. Geology is of fundamental importance when deciding on the location and design of all engineering works, and it is essential that engineers have a basic knowledge of the subject.

Geology and Geophysics of Continental Margins

AAPG Memoir 53. The latest geological and geophysical data and concepts impacting the study of the world's continental margins. Also features 7 papers on sea level and seismic stratigraphy studies along continental margins.

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.
