European geologists, many from former Soviet bloc countries, present 14 studies they delivered at an October 2002 workshop in Freiberg, Germany on the physical geology of sub-volcanic systems. The subject has not been so thoroughly examined since 1970, they say, and could be of interest to igneous petrologists, volcanologists, structural geologists

For introductory courses in physical geology. Encouraging students to observe, discover, and visualize, How Does Earth Work? Second Edition engages students with an inquiry-based learning method that develops a solid interpretation of introductory geology. Like geology detectives, students learn to think through the scientific process and uncover evidence that explains earth’s mysteries.

Publisher: Brooks/Cole Publishing Company
The primary purpose of this text is to provide introductory geology students - who have had little or no science background - with a better understanding and appreciation of geology. Thompson & Turk's MODERN PHYSICAL GEOLOGY, Second Edition, stands out through its early coverage of plate tectonics (Chapter 2), the inclusion of special topic areas, and its beautiful design and writing style. It offers a complete overview of all topics in physical geology, including the most recent developments and research in areas of climate change and environmental issues.
An Introduction to Physical Geology
Author: Jon P. Davidson,Paul M. Davis
Category: Physical geology
Exploring Earth is the first introductory book to take an integrative approach to physical geology within the framework of geologic processes. The book's conventional table of contents is followed by a topical table of contents, to better enable readers to find all the coverage of a particular topic. The book's approach presents the richness of the field of geology in its entirety while making the subject interesting and easier to learn. Topics include simulating Earth's interior; the eruption of Mount St. Helen's; why the is ocean salty; the Antarctic ozone hole; controlling earthquakes; acid rain; explosive volcanic eruptions; and damming a wild river. Beginning geologists and nature enthusiasts.
A Field Guide for Geotechnical Engineers
Author: Roy E. Hunt
Publisher: CRC Press
Category: Technology & Engineering
Properly understanding and characterizing geologic materials and formations is vital for making critical engineering decisions. Identifying and classifying rock masses and soil formations allows reasonable estimation of their characteristic properties. Comprising chapters from the second edition of the revered Geotechnical Engineering Investigation Handbook, Characteristics of Geologic Materials and Formations provides a basis for recognizing, identifying, and classifying the various rock and soil types. With clear, concise, and hands-on guidance, this book describes these rock and soil types in terms of their origin, mode of occurrence, and structural features in situ and presents the typical characteristics that are of engineering significance. It also explains the elements that affect surface and subsurface water engineering in terms of controlling floods, erosion, subsurface flow, and seepage, as well as for water conservation. Supplying important correlations used to estimate engineering and geologic properties, the book presents correlations for intact rock, rock masses, and soil formations throughout the chapters and condenses this information into a convenient summary table in an appendix. Eliminate the need to search through narrow volumes or large handbooks with Characteristics of Geologic Materials and Formations: A Field Guide for Geotechnical Engineers, a convenient and complete guide to the techniques you need.

Interdisciplinary Teaching about the Earth and Environment for a Sustainable Future presents the outcomes of the InTeGrate project, a community effort funded by the National Science Foundation to improve Earth literacy and build a workforce prepared to tackle environmental and resource issues. The InTeGrate community is built around the shared goal of supporting interdisciplinary learning about Earth across the undergraduate curriculum, focusing on the grand challenges facing society and the important role that the geosciences play in addressing these grand challenges. The chapters in this book explicitly illustrate the intimate relationship between geoscience and sustainability that is often opaque to students. The authors of these chapters are faculty members, administrators, program directors, and researchers from institutions across the country who have collectively envisioned, implemented, and evaluated effective change in their classrooms, programs, institutions, and beyond. This book provides guidance to anyone interested in implementing change—on scales ranging from a single course to an entire program—by infusing sustainability across the curriculum, broadening access to Earth and environmental sciences, and assessing the impacts of those changes.

The Sixth Edition of the Introductory Geology Lab Manual, by J Bret Bennington and Charles Merguerian is being distributed by McGraw-Hill Publishers. The manual offers twelve integrated hands-on laboratory modules with major emphasis on mineral- and rock identification, map reading and interpretation, and earthquakes. The manual features an appendix on the geology of the southern part of the New England Appalachians but could be easily customized for adoption in other regions of the country. In a concise, no frills, and cost-effective manner, it covers the major topics in Physical Geology and is appropriate for both science and non-science majors. The manual's primary focus is basic and simple in that it employs methods of logical and inductive reasoning. It has been rigorously tested for effectiveness at the undergraduate level over the past ten years, the writing style is crisp and the graphics, diagrams, and tables are easy to read and understand. This 185-page manual is priced inexpensively and has removable worksheets.
