High Resolution Morphodynamics and Sedimentary Evolution of by Duncan M. FitzGerald, Jasper Knight

By Duncan M. FitzGerald, Jasper Knight

This booklet makes a speciality of using high-resolution geophysical strategies, box observations and modeling to enquire the morphodynamics of estuaries on either glaciated and non-glaciated coasts and on various time scales. Papers during this ebook provide a brand new method of nearshore and estuary reviews, with an emphasis on multidisciplinary thoughts and information integration. result of those experiences have vital implications for estuary source administration and coastline balance. This publication may be of curiosity to sedimentologists, coastal and Quaternary geologists, environmental scientists, and coastal managers.

Antarctica: Contributions to Global Earth Sciences

Sixty articles prepared in 8 thematic sections confer with most up-to-date geological and geophysical result of Antarctic study. The Precambrian of the East Antarctic defend and its geological heritage is taken into account in addition to sub-ice topography, geophysics and stratigraphy, sedimentology and geophysics of the encompassing Southern Ocean.

Introduction to Planetary Science: The Geological Perspective

This textbook is meant for use in a lecture path for students majoring within the Earth Sciences. Planetary technological know-how offers a chance for those scholars to use a variety of material referring to the Earth to the research of alternative planets of the sun procedure and their significant satellites.

Minerals and Mineraloids in Marine Sediments: An Optical Identification Guide

Over 60% of the Earth's floor is roofed with deep marine sediments, although, until eventually the early Eighties, no entire textual content books looked as if it would aid the quick growth within the examine of those sediments. whereas the total box of marine geology has multiplied drastically and fully new disciplines, comparable to paleoceanography, were constructed, there is still a scarcity of reference texts on learn recommendations that investigators within the marine neighborhood can flip to.

Therefore, smaller variations might not been represented correctly in the classes. Nevertheless, the larger regions >300 m could be classified using this. The calculated parameters are not independent from each other and contain some amount of redundancy, because several parameters are derived from one set of sidescan sonar data. Most likely some parameters are more relevant for the final classification than others are. We did not investigate these relationships in detail and expect that redundancy will be separated by the principle component analysis.
