Investigating Groundwater

1st Edition

Ian Acworth
March 28, 2019

Investigating Groundwater provides an integrated approach to the challenges associated with locating groundwater. Uniquely, the book provides a review of the wide range of techniques that can be deployed to investigate this important resource. Many of the practical examples given are based upon...

Life in Deep Time: Darwin’s “Missing” Fossil Record

1st Edition

J. William Schopf
November 21, 2018

When Darwin wrote his Origin of Species, one of his main concerns was with the perceived shortness of the fossil record of life. Until the work of J. William Schopf and his colleagues, much of this history was thought to be unknowable. This book, through a memoire of Schopf’s personal recollections...

Cretaceous Fossils of South-Central Africa: An Illustrated Guide

1st Edition

Michael Robert Cooper
September 25, 2018

This book serves as an introduction to the Cretaceous geology and palaeontology of south-central Africa, covering the whole of Southern and Eastern Africa and Angola. Fifty two plates illustrate almost 1000 species and provide a field guide to the macrofossils of the subcontinent. The book will be...

Carbon Capture and Storage: Technologies, Policies, Economics, and Implementation Strategies

1st Edition

King Abdullah Petroleum Studies, Saud M. Al-Fattah, Murad F. Barghouty, Bashir O. Dabbousi
August 16, 2018

This book focuses on issues related to a suite of technologies known as “Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS),” which can be used to capture and store underground large amounts of industrial CO2 emissions. It addresses how CCS should work, as well as where, why, and how these technologies should be...

Advances in Spatio-Temporal Analysis

1st Edition

Xinming Tang, Yaolin Liu, Jixian Zhang, Wolfgang Kainz
August 09, 2018

Developments in Geographic Information Technology have raised the expectations of users. A static map is no longer enough; there is now demand for a dynamic representation. Time is of great importance when operating on real world geographical phenomena, especially when these are dynamic. ...

This book provides theoretical concepts and applications of fractals and multifractals to a broad range of audiences from various scientific communities, such as petroleum, chemical, civil and environmental engineering, atmospheric research, and hydrology. In the first chapter, we introduce...

Historical Agriculture and Soil Erosion in the Upper Mississippi Valley Hill Country

1st Edition

Stanley W. Trimble
October 23, 2017

"This thought-provoking book demonstrates how processes of landscape transformation, usually illustrated only in simplified or idealized form, play out over time in real, complex landscapes. Trimble illustrates how a simple landscape disturbance, generated in this case by agriculture, can spread an...
