The planet we live on The beginnings of the Earth Sciences

PDF | 196 Pages | English
This book, like the others in the Series, is written in simple English  the language most widely used in science and technology. It provides an introduction to the study of Earth science, but `Earth science' is interpreted differently in different countries. In some regions of the Earth, such as on the Pacific margins, it usually covers all the science relating to the Earth, including geology, meteorology, oceanography, geomorphology and soil science. It therefore covers much of physical geography in these regions, where geography is often not a strong school subject. In other countries `Earth science' has a rather narrower definition, largely covering only geology, whilst other aspects of `Earth science' are covered in geography. Nevertheless, wherever on Earth this book is being read, if you want to study `Earth science' in Higher Education, at College or University, you will study mainly geology. So this book has been written as an introductory guide to geology, to interest you in the subject and to enthuse you to study geology at higher levels.

 
Principles of Geology or The Modern Changes of the Earth and its Inhabitants Considered as Illustrative of Geology

Online | NA Pages | English
This is a book by the Scottish geologist Charles Lyell. Lyell used geology throughout as a basis to strengthen his argument for Uniformitarianism.This book explains the geological state of the modern Earth by considering the long-term effects of observable natural phenomena.

 
Fractal Analysis and Chaos in Geosciences

Online | 978 Pages | English
This book relates fractals and chaos to a variety of geological and geophysical applications. This book contains eight chapters showing the recent applications of the fractal or mutifractal analysis in geosciences. Two chapters are devoted to applications of the fractal analysis in climatology, two of them to data of cosmic and solar geomagnetic data from observatories. Four chapters of the book contain some applications of the (multi-) fractal analysis in exploration geophysics.

This book explains about the earth and its evolution.Also describes planetary formation theories and builds a model of what early earth could of looked like, subtley using the scientific method and asking and answering questions every step of the way.

 
Sedimentary Geology

Online | NA Pages | English
This course note covers sediments in the rock cycle, production of sediments at the Earth's surface, physics and chemistry of sedimentary materials, and scale and geometry of near-surface sedimentary bodies, including aquifers. It also explores topics like sediment transport and deposition in modern sedimentary environments, burial and lithification, survey of major sedimentary rock types, stratigraphic relationships of sedimentary basins, and evolution of sedimentary processes through geologic time.

 
Geology For Engineers

Online | NA Pages | English
IN these days of specializing in " watertight compartments," the bearing of geology in relation to almost every branch of engineer-ing is very frequently neglected or ignored. A knowledge of geology is, however, of the first importance to the practical engineer, but it is difficult for him to study the application of this science to his requirements without having recourse to a large number of different textbooks and other works. References to geology which are often of the greatest practical importance are often almost hidden away or treated in an obscure fashion, where- as the engineer requires the needful information to be put before him in a clear and concise manner. To meet this want I have endeavoured to compile the requisite information in one volume, in the hope that it may serve as a handy book of reference. GEOLOGY is the science which investigates the history of the earth. It treats of the nature and formation of the rocks which form the solid framework of the globe ; of the agents which produce changes in these rocks ; and of the history of the past life, whose remains (fossils) are buried in them.

 
The Elements of Geology

Online | NA Pages | English
Geology is a science of such rapid growth that no apology is expected when from time to time a new text-book is added to those already in the field. The present work, however, is the outcome of the need of a text-book of very simple outline, in which causes and their consequences should be knit together as closely as possible,—a need long felt by the author in his teaching, and perhaps by other teachers also. The author has ventured, therefore, to depart from the common usage which subdivides geology into a number of departments,—dynamical, structural, physiographic, and historical,—and to treat in immediate connection with each geological process the land forms and the rock structures which it has produced. In arrangement, the twofold division of the subject was chosen because of its simplicity and effectiveness. The principles of physical geology come first; the several chapters are arranged in what is believed to be a natural order, appropriate to the greatest part of our country, so that from a simple beginning a logical sequence of topics leads through the whole subject. The historical view of the science comes second, with many specific illustrations of the physical processes previously studied, but now set forth as part of the story of the earth, with its many changes of aspect and its succession of inhabitants. Special attention is here given to North America, and care is taken to avoid overloading with details.

Introduction to Structural Geology

PDF | 89 Pages | English
Structural Geology, Tectonics and Geodynamics form a coherent and interdependent ensemble of sub-disciplines, the aim of which is the search for knowledge about how minerals, rocks and rock formations, and Earth systems deform and via which processes.

 
New Departures in Structural Geology and Tectonics

PDF | 61 Pages | English
This white paper is the outgrowth of a workshop organized by David Pollard of Stanford University and held in Denver, in September 2002. During this two-day workshop, twenty members of the SG&T academic community presented brief overviews of topics related to their research specialties, and discussed future objectives and needs. Representing the NSF were David Fountain, Arthur Goldstein, and Herman Zimmerman. From this meeting draft chapters were written by working groups. Edited versions were circulated amongst the whole group, and the final document was collated and edited by David Pollard. In an intellectually diverse community, there will be some who disagree with some of this document. Our intent was to begin to provide some guidelines for our science in the near future. A major theme of this document is the integrated nature of our work, and the implications this has for future funding of the research and teaching we do. We look forward to fostering a stronger structural geology and tectonics program at the NSF, and appreciate the opportunity to craft this document.

 
General Dictionary of Geology

PDF | 60 Pages | English
The subjects of this dictionary are most of geological terms but there are many terms that also related with geophysics, biology, astrophysics, and geography. Geology is an interesting subject in knowing history of Earth creation, creature evolution, ancient Earth life and Earth condition in the past; even find mine, coal, also oil deposit below Earth surface. Petrogeologist study geology to find mine, coal, or oil deposit. Geophysics scientist study geology for recognize the physical characteristics of Earth component such as magnetism, seismicity, elasticity, Earth thermodynamic, by physical experiments in a specific geological structure which consist of specific rocks and minerals. Biology scientist study geology for tracing the historical evolution of creature in its first appearance until this time. Geographers also study geology for recognize a spatial phenomenon of Earth surface that were formed or influenced with a sequences of geological event.

 
The Elements of Geology Adapted to the Use of Schools and Colleges by Loomis

Online | NA Pages | English
A sufficient number of leading facts has been introduced to enable the learner to feel that every important principle is a conclusion to which he has himself arrived; and yet, for the purpose of compression, that fullness of detail has been avoided with which more extended works abound. In furtherance of the same object, authorities are seldom cited.
