Introduction to geochemistry by Konrad B Krauskopf( Book )

66 editions published between 1967 and 2003 in English and held by 1,680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended as an introduction to geochemistry - an increasingly important part of earth science, this book emphasizes the application of geochemistry to geologic problems - presenting carefully selected examples from actual field and laboratory studies. The book's goal is to make readers come to understand geochemistry as an exciting area of research, and to provide a feeling for the usefulness of geochemistry as a background for many kinds of earth science inquiry. Throughout the book, attention is continually directed to the relations between theoretical formulas and results of controlled laboratory experiments, as well as to geologic field observations. The book begins with an introduction to chemical equilibrium, concentrating on the carbonate and silicate equilibria that are important in geologic environments. Next comes a brief look at the chemistry of crystalline solids and reactions at mineral surfaces. The manifold uses of isotopes in geochemistry are given extended treatment, and the recent important studies of reaction rates and mass transfer are covered. Readers will then find detailed discussions of the geochemistry of materials at and near the earth's surface

Radioactive waste disposal and geology by Konrad B Krauskopf( Book )

12 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in English and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The perception of radioactive waste as a major problem for the industrial world has developed only recently. Four decades ago the disposal of such waste was regarded as a relatively minor matter. Those were the heady days when nuclear fission seemed the answer to the world's energy needs: the two wartime bombs had demonstrated its awesome power, and now it was to be harnessed for the production of electricity, the excavation of canals, even the running of cars and airplanes. In all applications of fission some waste containing radioactive elements would be generated of course, but it seemed only a trivial annoyance, a problem whose solution could be deferred until the more exciting challenges of constructing reactors and devising more efficient weapons had been mastered. So waste accumulated, some in tanks and some buried in shallow trenches. These were recognized as only temporary, makeshift measures, because it was known that the debris would be hazardous to its surroundings for many thousands of years and hence that more permanent disposal would someday be needed. The difficulty of accomplishing this more lasting disposal only gradually became apparent. The difficulty has been compounded by uncertainty about the physiological effects oflow-Ievel radiation, by the inadequacy of detailed knowledge about the behavior of engineered and geologic materials over long periods under unusual conditions, and by the sensitization of popular fears about radiation in all its forms following widely publicized reactor accidents and leaks from waste storage sites

Responses to History of Geophysics Survey by Center for History of Physics (American Institute of Physics)( )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Responses to a survey of approximately 250 leading geophysicists worldwide, conducted by the American Institute of Physics (AIP) Center for History of Physics and the Committe on History of Geophysics of the American Geophysical Union in 1997. Recipients were asked to send copies of their curriculum vitae and a list of publications as Part One of the survey and were then asked to discuss their entry into science in general and geophysics specifically as a career; how their scientific achievements came about and major efforts they were involved in which did not achieve the hoped for results; changes from one discipline to another; funding sources; the role of other disciplines in their own research; their work as educators; and their involvement in geophysics-related institutions. Responses, including questionnaires, curriculum vitae, lists of publications, or autobiographical statements, were contributed by: Philip H. Abelson, Keiiti Aki, Leroy R. Alldredge, Clarence R.
