By Anja Thieme

Ein Klingen, ein Glanz - Thomas Renneberg wundert sich. Spricht da nicht jemand mit ihm? Thomas geht nicht ins Büro, sondern schleunigst zum Arzt. Doch die sprechende Erscheinung verschwindet nicht, sie ist jetzt auch zu sehen - ein daumengroßes, schimmerndes Persönchen ...

Anja Thieme, Jg. 1969, empfindet schon seit Kindertagen das Bedürfnis, alles in Worte zu fassen. Seit der Veröffentlichung ihres ersten Romans 'Orkneys Söhne' arbeitet sie hauptberuflich als Autorin. Vor allem fühlt sie sich mit dem Schicksal ihrer Figuren verbunden und möchte deren Erlebnisse für den Leser spürbar machen. Oscar Wilde, Max Frisch und John Irving sind deshalb ihre Vorbilder und Lieblingsautoren. Zweisprachig zu schreiben empfindet sie als neue und besonders schöne Herausforderung. Anja Thieme lebt mit ihrer Familie und zwei Katern am Niederrhein.

Download Cretaceous Environments of Asia by Hakuyu Okada and Nlall J. Mateer (Eds.) PDF

By Hakuyu Okada and Nlall J. Mateer (Eds.)

This e-book provides a synthesis of the imperative environmental features of the Cretaceous in East and South Asia. The study was once complete below IGCP undertaking 350, which bargains with the organic, climatological and actual environments of this sector throughout the Cretaceous. This synthesis discusses elements of stratigraphy, sedimentology, paleontology, geochemistry, tectonics, petrology, mineralogy, and geophysics. The examine effects are summarised by way of nation, and contain a ways East Russia, Mongolia, jap China, Korea, Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, and India. even though those nations don't surround the full sector, this assurance presents an exceptional viewpoint of the evolution of the quarter in the course of the Cretaceous. The files integrated during this booklet current a wealth of marine and nonmarine information on weather, biotic range, flow and chemistry of the sea in addition to primary plume tectonism. The latter looks to have triggered a lot of the environmental switch during this large sector, together with either an greater greenhouse influence and excessive sea degrees.

Download Geohazard in Rocky Coastal Areas (Geological Society Special by C Violante PDF

By C Violante

This specific booklet presents more than a few tools and methods for characterizing and modelling mass-wasting phenomena liable for land degradation and erosion in rocky coastal components. Rocky coasts take place in numerous geological settings with quite a lot of morphologies reckoning on rock sort, tectonics and weather. In some of these settings, slope instability represents an important geological approach that considerably impacts the human use of coastal assets over a number of magnitudes and classes of recurrence. The mentioned case experiences within the quantity take care of land-born geological techniques that convey sediment to the coast and open sea at intermittent time durations, usually with catastrophic implications. They contain huge slope disasters on either volcanic and non-volcanic coastal components, cliff recession and floods of coastal streams from key parts of the Italian peninsula. these types of experiences search to set up sea-land correlations according to marine geophysical investigations and box analyses, and to spotlight the position of documentary assets in an effort to realize geological constraints for risk evaluate in rocky coastal components. comparable TitleSP316 Palaeoseismology: historic and prehistorical documents of earthquake flooring results for seismic probability assessmentEdited via okay Reicherter, A M Michetti and P G

Download High Resolution Sequence Stratigraphy: Innovations & by John A. Howell, J. F. Aitken PDF

By John A. Howell, J. F. Aitken

In recent times there was an important enlargement in reports utilizing excessive solution series stratigraphic strategies. series stratigraphy has developed from the unique recommendations of seismic stratigraphy to a scale above seismic solution. strategies constructed at outcrop at the moment are being effectively utilized to sub-surface facts units and are offering a tremendously better figuring out of facies geometries and reservoir structure. This has ended in the reappraisal of the geology of areas which were studied for plenty of many years and series stratigraphy has constructed right into a robust, predictive facies research device for either the hydrocarbon and educational learn. The papers during this quantity illustrate the intensity and breadth of present series stratigraphic learn. experiences are incorporated on many features of series stratigraphy, from either outcrop and subsurface information with examples from a variety of nations. additionally to be had: Key matters in Petroleum Geology - Stratigraphy (Key matters in Earth Sciences) - ISBN 1862392374 Ostracods in British Stratigraphy - TMS certain book No 003 - ISBN 978-1-86239-274-8 The Geological Society of LondonFounded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society on this planet, and one of many greatest publishers within the Earth sciences.The Society publishes quite a lot of top quality peer-reviewed titles for lecturers and execs operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable foreign recognition for the standard of its work.The many parts within which we put up in include:-Petroleum geology-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology-Volcanology, magmatic reviews and geochemistry-Remote sensing-History of geology-Regional geology publications

Download Evolution and the Fossil Record Excellent Illustration by John Pojeta Jr., Dale Springer PDF

By John Pojeta Jr., Dale Springer

Evolution and the Fossil checklist, an attention-grabbing e-book produced by way of the yank Geological Institute in cooperation with the Paleontological Society, goals to aid most people achieve a greater realizing of 1 of the basic underlying suggestions of recent technology. This publication has many colourful photographs, drawings, and illustrations which enhance the authors' conversational type as they speak about geologic time; switch via time; Darwin's conception of evolution; evolution as a mechanism for switch; the character of species; the character of conception; paleontology, geology, and evolution; and selecting the age of fossils and rocks. 4 "case learn" examples from the fossil checklist - evolution of vertebrate legs, evolution of birds, evolution of mammals, and evolution of whales - are offered to supply a time point of view for knowing the evolution of existence on the earth. This non-technical creation to evolution comprises straight forward definitions in addition to discussions of complicated rules.

Download Hydrocarbon Migration Systems Analysis by J. M. Verweij PDF

By J. M. Verweij

The most purpose of this publication is to supply geoscientists or operating in hydrocarbon exploration with a finished knowing of the evolution of hydrocarbon migration structures in sedimentary basins and to offer directions for its program in basin overview. For this goal, the publication absolutely integrates hydrogeologic and hydrodynamic features of the evolution of sedimentary basins with petroleum geologic points. it is going to be of curiosity to petroleum geologists, hydrogeologists, geochemists and reservoir geologists.
