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

22 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and Japanese and held by 1,277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

But the intellectual rewards of the journeys also abounded, and Hsu is the ideal writer to convey the excitement with which he and other crew scientists pursued them. The quintessential insider, he offers biographical sketches, humorous anecdotes, background information from the history of geology, and excerpts from the ship's daily operational report - all skillfully combined with a narrative history of the ship's explorations in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans and the polar seas. From a description of the much-debated drilling of a "Mohole" that would reach a mysterious realm ten kilometers below the ocean to a summary of the seafloor evidence for a meteor's having "murdered" the dinosaurs, the work provides an overview of the current state of marine geology and a source book for the history of that science
The Mediterranean was a desert : a voyage of the Glomar Challenger by Kenneth J Hsü( Book )

20 editions published between 1983 and 1997 in English and Chinese and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great dying by Kenneth J Hsü( Book )

26 editions published between 1986 and 1997 in 6 languages and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author uses a discussion of the extinction of the dinosaurs to argue against the basic Darwinian evolutionary theory of natural selection and in favor of a chance and catastrophe theory drawn from the philosophy of China

Physics of sedimentology : textbook and reference by Kenneth J Hsü( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 334 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."
The geology of Switzerland : an introduction to Tectonic Facies by Kenneth J Hsü( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kenneth Hsu's previous books have fascinated general audiences and served as accessible texts for students of geology. Here this leading earth scientist relates the study of the Alps to his theory of tectonic facies, thus demonstrating how the plate tectonics model can be used to understand the geology of mountains. Mountain chains have individual characters, each one different from the others, but they also share some common characteristics since they are all built according to the same body-plan (Bau-plan). In this book Hsu looks at the geology of the Swiss Alps to explain that plan and to show how the Alps and other ancient mountain systems were constructed
South Atlantic paleoceanography( Book )

12 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 301 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
