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.

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.

Introductory Mining Engineering, 2nd Edition

An introductory text and reference on mining engineering highlighting the latest in mining technology Introductory Mining Engineering outlines the role of the mining engineer throughout the life of a mine, including prospecting for the deposit, determining the site's value, developing the mine, extracting the mineral values, and reclaiming the land afterward.

Technology Innovation in Underground Construction

Richly-illustrated reference guide presenting innovative techniques focused on reducing time, cost and risk in the construction and maintenance of underground facilities.

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.

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

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.

Petroleum Geoscience

Petroleum Geoscience is a comprehensive introduction to the application of geology and geophysics to the search for and production of oil and gas.

Guidelines for Open Pit Slope Design

This important book is an outcome of an international project on the stability of rock slopes in open pit mines, and is designed to link innovative mining geomechanics research with best practice


Biomining is the biotechnology that uses microorganisms to recover metals, in particular copper and gold, from ores and concentrates. Having developed from a very simple operational process, biomining has developed into a multi-faceted technology, to the extent that many of the largest industrial stirred tanks and heaps throughout the world are employed for biomining minerals

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
