At the Top of the Grand Staircase: The Late Cretaceous of Southern Utah (Life of the Past)

The Grand Staircase-Escalante nationwide Monument in Utah is the positioning of 1 of the best-known terrestrial documents for the overdue Cretaceous. an immense attempt within the new century has documented over 2,000 new vertebrate fossil websites, supplied new radiometric dates, and pointed out 5 new genera of ceratopsids, new species of hadrosaur, a likely new genus of hypsilophodontid, new pachycephalosaurs and ankylosaurs, a number of forms of theropods (including a brand new genus of oviraptor and a brand new tyrannosaur), plus the main whole specimen of a past due Cretaceous therizinosaur ever gathered from North the US, and masses extra.

Rock Grouting: with Emphasis on Dam Sites

Fifteen years have handed because i used to be operating at a dam website large­ vising grouting paintings. That used to be no longer the 1st time that I needed to vehicle­ ry out engineering geological investigations for a number of comparable tasks, which constantly incorporated checking out programmes to determine the permeability of the rock, and infrequently i used to be accountable for grouting paintings.

Geomorphology of Central America: A Syngenetic Perspective

Geomorphology of important the United States is authored through a scientist with greater than 30 years of local overview learn adventure in principal American nations, arming scientists with a vintage examine method—a approach ideal while utilized to precise geographic areas globally. The medical concepts used for assessing nearby reports of a space replicate a degree of craftsmanship that has turn into more challenging to return through over the last 3 a long time and underscores the significance of nearby checks of geomorphological beneficial properties.

Tectonic Inheritance in Continental Rifts and Passive Margins (SpringerBriefs in Earth Sciences)

This paintings experiences the mechanism of rifting with a spotlight on pre-existing tectonic weaknesses in pre-rift and/or basement rocks, i. e. , on tectonic inheritance. The passive margins which are studied during this publication are the Norwegian Continental Shelf, the jap North the USA and the East and West Indian Continental Margins.
