Challenger at sea : a ship that revolutionized earth science by Kenneth J Hsü( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The famous geological research ship Glomar Challenger was a radically new instrument that revolutionized earth science in the same sense that the cyclotron revolutionized nuclear physics, and its deep-sea drilling voyages, conducted from 1968 through 1983, were some of the great scientific adventures of our time. Beginning with the vessel's first cruises, which lent support to the idea of continental drift, the Challenger played a key part in the widely publicized plate-tectonics revolution and its challenge to more conventional theories. Here the leading oceanographer and earth scientist Kenneth Hsu offers an intensely personal account of the experiences of the ship's diverse crews - the sailors, drillers, marine technicians, and scientists who braved not only the ocean's resistance to surrendering its secrets but also the difficulties of balky machinery, physical illness, close quarters, and all-too-human temperaments

The geology of Switzerland : an introduction to Tectonic Facies by Kenneth J Hsü( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Geology of Switzerland will be invaluable for anyone taking a course in plate tectonics or structural geology, and it will be a useful guide for geologists, professional or amateur, traveling in the Alps. The first twelve chapters are a translation and revision of Hsu's popular German textbook Geologie der Schweiz, while the last two formulate his facies concept and use it to discuss the classic mountain ranges of the world
South Atlantic paleoceanography( Book )

12 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paleoceanography is the science dealing with the history of the oceans. Originally published in 1985, this book describes what had been found out during the previous decade about the past 100 million years of the history of the South Atlantic Ocean, thanks largely to drilling by Glomar Challenger during five expeditions in 1980. Palaeotemperature studies provided a history of climatic variations, geochemistry of carbon isotopes provided information on fertility of planktonic organisms and the intensity of oceanic overturns, while correlation of sediment character to changes in oceanic chemistry and fertility permitted interpretations of the variation of the level at which fossil skeletons became dissolved. All the authors were experts and most took part in the 1980 expeditions to the South Atlantic. The book brought together the results of the major discoveries into one volume. This volume was the first modern regional synthesis of ocean history, and it served as methodological model for studies of the world's other oceans
Physics of sedimentology : textbook and reference by Kenneth J Hsü( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Physics of sedimentology explains sedimentological processes via the fundamental physics that underlies the actual mechanisms involved. The applicability of fundamental principles, such as Newton's Three Laws of Motion, the Law of Conservation of Energy, the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics, and of other physical relations in hydraulics and groundwater hydrology is illustrated by discussions of natural processes which form sediments and sedimentary rocks. In this second edition several chapters have been updated and amended to reflect progress in the field."
