Carbonate Sedimentology and Petrology by Maurice E. Tucker

By Maurice E. Tucker

About The Product

Published by way of the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Short classes in Geology Series.

This quantity assumes a normal wisdom of carbonate mineralogy in addition to a familiarity with the final ideas of sedimentology and makes a speciality of particular versions of carbonate deposition and diagenesis. the final precept of uniformity of approach is principally generally utilized in carbonate sedimentology. The editors therefore concentration first on versions in line with smooth settings. the applying of those versions to historical carbonates completes the amount.

Cold Aqueous Planetary Geochemistry with FREZCHEM: From Modeling to the Search for Life at the Limits

This publication explicitly investigates problems with astrobiological relevance within the context of chilly aqueous planetary geochemistry. on the middle of the technical chapters is the FREZCHEM version, at first built over decades by way of one of many authors to quantify aqueous electrolyte houses and chemical thermodynamics at subzero temperatures.

Environmental Applications of Geochemical Modeling

This publication discusses the appliance of geochemical types to environmental perform and stories, by using quite a few case reports of real-world environmental difficulties, comparable to acid mine drainage, pit lake chemistry, nuclear waste disposal, and landfill leachates. In each one instance the authors essentially outline the environmental chance in query; clarify how geochemical modeling might help remedy the matter posed; and propose the reader how you can arrange enter records for geochemical modeling codes and interpret the consequences when it comes to assembly regulatory specifications.
