  • About Geoscience

    Geoscience (or earth science) is an all-encompassing term that can refer to any science dealing with planet Earth, such as geology, geophysics, geochemistry, or geodesy. Geoscience studies the origin and evolution of our planet and the surface environment, encompassing the atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere. This interdisciplinary field of science utilizes physics, chemistry, biology, chronology, and mathematics to address critical issues involving energy, meteorology, water and mineral resources, oceanography, and planetary science among others, and develop a better understanding of the earth and how it works.

The Impact of Soil Erosion in the Upper Blue Nile on Downstream Reservoir Sedimentation

The Impact of Soil Erosion in the Upper Blue Nile on Downstream Reservoir Sedimentation

Yasir Salih Ahmed Ali

December 09, 2014

Population growth in the Blue Nile Basin has led to fast land-use changes from forest to agricultural land, which resulted in speeding up the soil erosion processes producing highly negative impacts on the local soil fertility and agricultural productivity. The eroded sediment is transported...

A Key for Identification of Rock-Forming Minerals in Thin Section

A Key for Identification of Rock-Forming Minerals in Thin Section

Andrew J. Barker

November 21, 2014

Structured in the form of a dichotomous key, comparable to those widely used in botany, the mineral key provides an efficient and systematic approach to identifying rock-forming minerals in thin-section. This unique approach covers 150+ of the most commonly encountered rock-forming minerals, plus a...

Planetary Geodesy and Remote Sensing

Shuanggen Jin

October 22, 2014

Although lunar exploration began in the 1960s, the moon and other planets have many long-standing, unanswered questions about planetary environments, origin, formation and evolution, magnetization of crustal rocks, internal structure, and possible life. However, with the recent development of...

Logging the Chalk

Logging the Chalk

Rory N. Mortimore

October 13, 2014

Chalk has proved to be one of the more difficult rocks to corelog as it breaks up readily during the drilling process leading to core-loss and destructuring, particularly where flints, nodular chalks, and/or fractures are present. One of the greatest difficulties is the identification of chalk...
