Submarine massflow sedimentation: computer modelling and basin-fill stratigraphy

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

Fractal and chaotic properties of earthquakes

This ebook bargains with the applying of fractal and nonlinear time-series research to seismicity and earthquakes in the framework of earthquake prediction examine. Emphasis is on theoretical foundations in addition to functional implementation and pitfalls to permit readers to behavior their very own analyses.
