Introducing Geology: A Guide to the World of Rocks

This introductory e-book explains only what geology can let us know concerning the international. Many gadgets of serious attractiveness which excite our interest, equivalent to crystals or fossils, are to be came upon by means of interpreting rocks. these trying to find and interpreting such items achieve even more by way of figuring out how and after they originated.

Coastal Evolution: Late Quaternary Shoreline Morphodynamics

This booklet assesses how coastlines switch and the way they've got advanced over the last few thousand years. It introduces the various most recent suggestions in coastal morphodynamics, spotting that coasts enhance via co-adjustment of method and shape. The authors study specific sorts of coasts--deltas, estuaries, reefs, lagoons and polar coasts--in element with conceptual types constructed at the foundation of well-studied examples.

The Southern Central Andes: Contributions to Structure and Evolution of an Active Continental Margin (Lecture Notes in Earth Sciences)

This quantity supplies an summary of the geotectonic evolution of the significant Andes. The contributions hide the complete spectrum of geoscientific learn: geology, petrology, geochemistry, geophysics and geomorphology. They care for the interval from overdue Precambrium as much as the youngest phenomena within the Quaternary.
