Dictionary of Earth Sciences

Earth science strives to understand the origins, evolution, and behavior of the earth in a broad context, including the place of the earth in the solar system and the universe. Much of the advances in earth science have resulted from the greatly improved ability to measure and analyze the complex interactions over time of the component parts of the earth, including the atmosphere, the biosphere, the hydrosphere, and the lithosphere. Thus, earth science is highly interdisciplinary, and an understanding of the terminology of the fields covered in this Dictionary is important for an appreciation of its literature and applications.

Atlas of the Worlds Deserts

In the Western imagination the word “desert” most often evokes a landscape of endless gigantic sand dunes, dazzling white under a cloudless hot-blue sky and a blazing sun. This landscape of the imagination is likely to be empty—deserted—except, perhaps, for a caravan of nomads and camels that inches slowly across the horizon, or a lone man stumbling, sun-blackened and sun-parched, through the heat haze. Or there may even be an emerald-green oasis, where tents are set out in the shade of a palm grove—though this, of course, may be nothing but a tantalizing mirage. This is the magnificent and exotic landscape of movies such as David Lean’s Lawrence of Arabia (1962) and Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Sheltering Sky (1990), and of countless adventure stories of intrepid travelers and explorers.

A Photographic Atlas of Rock Breakdown Features in Geomorphic Environments

A primary goal of geomorphological enquiry is to make genetic associations between process and form. In rock breakdown studies, the links between process, inheritance and lithology are not well constrained. In particular, there is a need to establish an understanding of feature persistence. That is, to determine the extent to which in situ rock breakdown (e.g., aeolian abrasion or salt weathering) masks signatures of earlier geomorphic transport processes (e.g., fluvial transport or crater ejecta). Equally important is the extent to which breakdown during geomorphic transport masks the imprint of past weathering (Viles et al., 2005).

Apuntes de geologia general

En el presente libro se exponen los conocimientos principales referente a la configuración, dimensiones y edad de la Tierra, se examinan los procesos de la dinámica exterior. La geología (del griego geo, tierra, y logos, estudio) es la ciencia que estudia la forma interior de la Tierra, la materia que la compone, su mecanismo de formación, los cambios o alteraciones que éstas han experimentado desde su origen, y la colocación que tienen en su actual estado.

The Age of the Earth

This book is dedicated to the memory of John Christopher Thackray (1948-1999), archivist at the Natural History Museum (NHM) and Geo- logical Society. It evolved from Celebrating the Age of the Earth, the Geological Society's William Smith Millennium Meeting, convened in June 2000 by Cherry Lewis on behalf of the History of Geology Group (HOGG), of which Simon Knell was then a committee member. John had been chairman of HOGG since its foundation in 1992 and without him this project would never have happened. The idea began with a meeting between John and Cherry, as she sought material for her forthcoming book on Arthur Holmes.

Theory of the earth

An interdisciplinary advanced textbook on the origin, composition, and evolution of the Earth's interior: geophysics, geochemistry, dynamics, convection, mineralogy, volcanism, energetics and thermal history. The book ties together all the strands of the subdisciplines. The new edition includes many new sections and dozens of new figures and tables. It is a stimulating textbook on advanced courses in geophysics, geochemistry, and planetary science, and supplementary textbook on a wide range of other advanced Earth science courses. It will also be an essential reference and resource for all researchers in the solid Earth sciences.
