"Earth Sciences" ed. by Imran Ahmad Dar
InTech | 2012 | ISBN: 9533078618 9789533078618 | 659 pages | PDF | 112 MB
This book offers one of the most comprehensive and up-to-date treatments of topics from fundamental geologic principles, to the specifics of environmental and geologic hazards, all from a truly environmental perspective. It fully discusses both processes and environmental issues and details, where appropriate, of the quantification of geologic processes. The book is written for research scholars, geologists, civil engineers, mining engineers, and environmentalists. The text will be used by students, and it will continue to be of value to them throughout their subsequent professional and research careers.
Earth Sciences deploy an interdisciplinary mix of physics, chemistry, biology, math, and natural science to understand the mysteries of nature.
The studies of Earth's history and of the physical and chemical properties of the substances that make up our planet, are of great significance to our understanding both of its past and its future. The geological and other environmental processes on Earth and the composition of the planet are of vital importance in locating and harnessing its resources.
The book has been divided into 11 sections; geology, geochemistry, seismology, petroleum geology, hydrology, hydrogeology, mineralogy, mining, volcanology, remote sensing, and environmental sciences.
