Carbonate Sedimentology and Petrology by Maurice E. Tucker

By Maurice E. Tucker

About The Product

Published by way of the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Short classes in Geology Series.

This quantity assumes a common wisdom of carbonate mineralogy in addition to a familiarity with the final rules of sedimentology and makes a speciality of particular versions of carbonate deposition and diagenesis. the final precept of uniformity of method is mainly commonly utilized in carbonate sedimentology. The editors hence concentration first on versions in line with sleek settings. the applying of those versions to old carbonates completes the quantity.

Theoretical Geochemistry: Applications of Quantum Mechanics in the Earth and Mineral Sciences

This paintings relies at the commentary that additional significant advances in geochemistry, really in realizing the principles that govern the ways that parts come jointly to shape minerals and rocks, would require the applying of the theories of quantum mechanics. The ebook as a result outlines this theoretical heritage and discusses the versions used to explain bonding in geochemical platforms.

Allgemeine Chemie: Chemie-Basiswissen I

Der erste Band der Reihe Chemie-Basiswissen vermittelt in seiner neuen Auflage die allgemeinen Grundlagen der Chemie für Bachelor-Studiengänge mit Chemie als Haupt- oder Nebenfach sowie für Studierende des höheren Lehramtes. Als Grundlagen-Repetitorium ist er auch für den Master-Studiengang Chemie geeignet.

Carbon in the geobiosphere : earth's outer shell

The publication covers the basics of the biogeochemical habit of carbon close to the Earth’s floor. it really is ordinarily a reference textual content for Earth and environmental scientists. It provides an outline of the origins and behaviour of the carbon cycle and atmospheric carbon dioxide, and the human results on them.
