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.

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.

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.

Modern Geophysics In Engineering Geology

In this book many examples of the successful integration of geophysical surveys into the site investigation process are described. The authors are drawn from many different countries and the case histories presented clearly indicate the importance of geophysical methods in the construction history in a world-wide context.

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.

Geophysical Sciences

The Springer-Praxis Geophysical Sciences programme encompasses the very latest observations, research results, techniques and discoveries in the exploration of our Planet Earth.

Exploration Geophysics

Many text books have been written on the subject "Exploration Geophysics". The majority of these texts focus on the theory and the mathematical treatment of the subject matter but lack treatment of practical aspects of geophysical exploration.

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.

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.
