Estuaries: Dynamics, Mixing, Sedimentation and Morphology by David Prandle

By David Prandle

This quantity offers researchers, scholars, practicing engineers and bosses entry to wisdom, functional formulae and new hypotheses for the dynamics, blending, sediment regimes and morphological evolution in estuaries. The targets are to give an explanation for the underlying governing techniques and synthesise those into descriptive formulae which are used to lead the long run improvement of any estuary. every one bankruptcy makes a speciality of assorted actual features of the estuarine process - selecting key study questions, outlining theoretical, modeling and observational techniques, and highlighting the fundamental quantitative effects. this enables readers to match and interpret various estuaries around the globe, and advance tracking and modeling thoughts for temporary administration concerns and for longer-term difficulties, akin to worldwide weather swap. The e-book is written for researchers and scholars in actual oceanography and estuarine engineering, and serves as a important reference and resource of rules for pro study, engineering and administration groups taken with estuaries.

Optical Mineralogy: Principles And Practice

Protecting thought and perform, this wide-ranging introductory textbook covers the most optical houses of rock-forming minerals that may be well-known less than the polarizing microscope. The authors elucidate the elemental components of microscopy, the speculation of sunshine transmission via translucent minerals, and the homes of sunshine mirrored from opaque minerals.

Physical Properties of Rocks: Fundamentals and Principles of Petrophysics (Developments in Petroleum Science)

The translation of geophysical information in exploration geophysics, good logging, engineering, mining and environmental geophysics calls for wisdom of the actual houses of rocks and their correlations. actual homes are a "key" for mixed interpretation concepts. The research of rock physics presents an interdisciplinary remedy of actual homes, no matter if with regards to geophysical, geotechnical, hydrological or geological technique.
