Depositional systems : a genetic approach to sedimentary geology by Richard A Davis( Book )

Beach and nearshore sedimentation : based on a symposium sponsored by the Society of Economic Paleontologists and Mineralogists by Society of Economic Paleontologists and Mineralogists( Book )

19 editions published between 1976 and 2014 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1975 SEPM Research Symposium was organised around the topic of Beach and Nearshore Sedimentation - Physical and Biological. This volume, derived from that symposium, provides a wealth of data on the details on the generation, hydromechanics and sediment interaction of processes operating in beach and nearshore environments. The subject is treated in such a way as to be of considerable benefit to coastal engineers, sedimentologists and field geologists
Beaches and coasts by Richard A Davis( Book )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2018 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beaches and Coasts provides the necessary content for teaching a broad coastal geology course. Though it is designed for introductory students, its comprehensive treatment of coastal topics will make it appropriate for many upper level courses."--Jacket
Principles of tidal sedimentology by R. A Davis( )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a comprehensive, contemporary review of tidal environments and deposits. Individual chapters, each written by world-class experts, cover the full spectrum of coastal, shallow-marine and even deep-marine settings where tidal action influences or controls sediment movement and deposition. Both siliciclastic and carbonate deposits are covered. Various chapters examine the dynamics of sediment transport by tides, and the morphodynamics of tidal systems. Several chapters explore the occurrence of tidal deposits in the stratigraphic context of entire sedimentary basins. This book
Marx : early political writings by Karl Marx( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The political doctrine of Karl Marx is to be found in a broad range of both published and unpublished writings. This volume, the first of two which together span his entire output, presents his early texts of 1843-7, which predate the Communist Manifesto. excerpts from the Critique of Hegel's Philosophy of Right and from the Paris Notebooks, Points on the State and Bourgeois Society and other writings are newly translated and arranged in a sequence that illuminates the development of Marx's thought, while the introduction discusses the intellectual context of the theories he constructed. A chronology of Marx's life and career and an annotated bibliography complete a volume which will be an invaluable guide to the formation of one of the most influential doctrines in the history of political thought
Hydrodynamics and sedimentation in wave-dominated coastal environments by B Greenwood( Book )

18 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hydrodynamics and sedimentation in wave-dominated coastal environments
Geology of Holocene barrier island systems by Richard A Davis( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the first comprehensive treatment of all types of barrier island systems in all geologic settings. Each chapter follows a common theme, yet each also has its own story to tell. The examples are widespread and well illustrated. The book presents all types of barriers while concentrating on the coast of the United States. Other barriers of the world are also covered in an abbreviated manner. The Holocene barriers treated here can be extrapolated into the ancient stratigraphic record. The chapters are designed to be comprehensive state-of-the-art summaries of the respective barrier systems rather than the usual specific treatment that is typical of individual research reports or symposia monographs
Tidalites : processes & products by International Conference on Tidal Sedimentology( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tidal processes are important agents of sediment transport and deposition. Recent development of better tools for recognising tidal deposits (e.g., tidal bundles and tidal rhythmites) has also revealed that such deposits are more common and extensive than previously thought. This volume presents the latest ideas on tidal sedimentation, including work concerning the tidal flats of the Wadden Sea, the area where modern-day studies of tidal sedimentation began; the origin, interpretation, and uses of tidal rhythmites; and the sequencestratigraphic context of tidal sediments
Beaches of the Gulf Coast by Richard A Davis( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much of the world's population lives within thirty miles of a coast, and beaches are perhaps the most popular tourist destinations worldwide. The Gulf of Mexico is no exception: Millions of people make their homes nearby, and many of them spend considerable time at the beach, joined by millions more tourists and seasonal visitors. In Beaches of the Gulf Coast, Richard A. Davis Jr., a veteran coastal geologist, explores the dynamics of beach formation, providing the reader with a basic understanding of the characteristics and behavior of the beach environment and what cau
