Geology and Geomorphology of Holocene Coastal Barriers of Brazil

Sérgio R. Dillenburg, Patrick A. Hesp ,"Geology and Geomorphology of Holocene Coastal Barriers of Brazil "Springer December 5, 2008 ISBN: 3540250085 PDF 380 pages 30.58mb
This is the first book to cover Holocene geology and geomorphology of the entire 8,500 kilometers of the Brazilian coast. It is aimed at third and fourth year undergraduates, post-graduate students, scientists and managers. It characterizes the coast in terms of holocene geology, geomorphology, oceanographic conditions and the location of the barrier types. Separate chapters outline the types of barrier in each state, beginning in the south and proceeding to the north. Special emphasis is placed on the stretches of coast where the detailed morphology and stratigraphy of barriers has been previously determined.

Geological Atlas of Africa: With Notes on Stratigraphy, Tectonics, Economic Geology, Geohazards and Geosites of Each Country

Thomas Schluter «Geological Atlas of Africa: With Notes on Stratigraphy, Tectonics, Economic Geology, Geohazards and Geosites of Each Country»Publisher: Springer Edition: 2005 ISBN: 354029144X PDF 272 pages 16,22 Mb
This is the first attempt to summarise the geology of Africa by presenting it in an atlas and to synthesise the stratigraphy, tectonics, economic geology, geohazards and geosites of each country and territory of the continent. Furthermore, the digitised geological maps are correlated and harmonised according to the current stratigraphic time table. The atlas aims to contribute to capacity building in African Earth Sciences and to initiate research and economic opportunities by providing a database of basic geological background information.

Electron Microprobe Analysis and Scanning Electron Microscopy in Geology

S. J. B. Reed, «Electron Microprobe Analysis and Scanning Electron Microscopy in Geology»Cambridge University Press ISBN: 052184875X 2006 PDF 206 pages 4.68 MB

The favourable reception given to the first (1996) edition of this book suggests that the joint treatment of electron microprobe analysis (EMPA) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) with a specifically geological slant has been found to serve a useful purpose. It was therefore decided to proceed with this second, revised and updated, edition. The inclusion of both EMPA and SEM can be justified on the grounds that the instruments share much in common and their functions overlap: SEMs fitted with X-ray spectrometers are often used in analytical mode, while EMP instruments, though designed primarily for analysis, also have imaging functions similar to those of the SEM.


Geology in Petroleum Production

A. J. Dikkers " Geology in Petroleum Production"Elsevier Publishing Company November 1, 1985 ISBN: 0444424504 240 pages PDF 3.28 mb
A practical book for geologists involved in petroleum production, here is a comprehensive review of basic techniques in production geology, the links with related subjects, and the function of geologists in the planning and operation of all phases of oilfield development. The first part discusses the basic techniques used in the analysis and graphic representation of the stratigraphy, tectonic structure, reservoir sedimentology and hydrocarbon distribution of an oilfield. The second part describes how this knowledge is applied in the various phases of field development. The mutual support between production geology and neighbouring disciplines such as seismology, log interpretation, reservoir engineering is stressed. Throughout the book, the text is secondary to the illustrations; these are examples, mostly hypothetical, of conditions and techniques discussed, designed so as to bring out as clearly as possible the importance of the points
