Encyclopedia of Sediments & Sedimentary Rocks

This complete, one-volume encyclopedia covers the sedimentological points of sediments and sedimentary rocks. It good points greater than 250 entries via a few a hundred and eighty eminent individuals from around the world, very good indices, pass references, and wide bibliographies.

Geological hazards: their assessment, avoidance, and mitigation

This e-book is an advent to dangers and man-made dangers that have implications for engineering geology. It examines dangers similar to seismic results, volcanoes and floods, and with subsidence, waste disposal and flooring water pollutants. Geological risks is an important publication for pro engineers in civil, geological and making plans parts world wide.

Submarine massflow sedimentation: computer modelling and basin-fill stratigraphy

Turbidite sandstone successions are universal parts of the stratigraphic content material of sedimentary basins, and are very important hydrocarbon reservoirs in lots of elements of the realm. This booklet addresses the $64000 factor of mass-flow sedimentation modelling within the framework of basin-fill dynamics and series stratigraphy.

Fractal and chaotic properties of earthquakes

This booklet bargains with the appliance of fractal and nonlinear time-series research to seismicity and earthquakes in the framework of earthquake prediction study. Emphasis is on theoretical foundations in addition to sensible implementation and pitfalls to allow readers to behavior their very own analyses.

Example text

The resuspension lag introduced in this way is more important than the settling lag for initial concentrations as low as lOOmgl" 1 . From initial concentrations of 30mgl~ 1 , over lOOmgl" 1 to lOOOmgl" 1 , it increases from 5% over 11% to 38% of the total netlag effect. (7) The net-lag effect increases with temperature for all grain sizes, mainly because of the raised settling velocity but also because the critical bed shear-stress for deposition increases with viscosity and thus decreases with temperature.
