The subject of mineralogy has moved away from the systematic treatment of mineral groups toward the study of the behavior of minerals in response to geological processes. It is vital that we understand the physics and chemistry of minerals as this response generally involves structural and chemical changes within individual minerals as well as reactions between minerals. This is the first text to provide an introduction to modern mineralogy for undergraduate students. The main, and often complex, concepts required to understand minerals and the processes that take place within them are presented in an easy to follow manner without any complex mathematical treatment. The book deals with solid-state transformations in minerals, which take place in response to changes in temperature and pressure, as well as introducing the basic crystallography, physics and chemistry needed to understand these processes. No knowledge of physics, chemistry and mathematics beyond high-school level is assumed.

Band 2 des dreibandigen Werkes behandelt die exogenen Gesteine, das heiBt die Verwitterungsprozesse und die Sedimentbildung. Bereits Ende 1947 lag das Manuskript fUr diesen Teil mit den Zeichnungen vor, die wiederum gri:iBtenteils von E. DAL VESCO und W. EpPRECHT, mit Unterstutzung durch die Behorden der Eidgenossischen Technischen Hochschule, entworfen worden waren. Infolge verschiedener Umstande hat sich die Drucklegung verzogert, so daB nachtraglich noch manche Literaturangaben bis zum Jahre 1951 hinzu gefUgt werden konnten. In der Zwischenzeit erschienen, besonders im englischen Sprachgebiet, verschiedene wichtige DarsteUungen uber Sedimente in Buch form. Nachstehender, im Aufbau etwas eigenwilliger Versuch berucksichtigt im allgemeinen die geologischen Grundlagen, die Sedimentchemie sowie die be sonderen Erscheinungen der Sedimentologie, wie sie in Binnenlandern von Ge birgscharakter auftreten, starker, ohne den so wichtigen allgemeinen syste matischen Teil zu vernachlassigen. So scheint er als Erganzung und als neue umfassende Darstellung seinen Platz beanspruchen zu durfen. Indessen konnten in Riicksicht auf die erwahnten Bucher im urspriinglichen Manuskript Kiir zungen vorgenommen werden. Die zahlreichen Literaturangaben steUen ein zelneHinweiseaufimTexterwahnteneuereArbeitenverschiedenerSprachgebiete dar, wobei es im Interesse der Fachwelt erwiinscht war, die in manchen anderen Publikationen wenig benutzten Arbeiten Kontinentaleuropas (besonders der Schweiz, Deutschlands, Frankreichs, der Niederlande und Osterreichs) etwas starker hervortreten zu lassen, ohne die angelsachsische wissenschaftliche Literatur zu vernachlassigen.

Warum arbeiten wir uns eigentlich zu Tode? Haben wir nichts Besseres zu tun? Und ob! - sagt Timothy Ferriss. Der junge Unternehmer war lange Workaholic mit 80-Stunden-Woche. Doch dann erfand er MBA- Management by Absence- und ist seitdem freier, reicher, glücklicher. Mit viel Humor, provokanten Denkanstößen und erprobten Tipps erklärt Ferriss, wie sich die 4-Stunden-Woche bei vollem Lohnausgleich verwirklichen lässt. Der Wegweiser für eine Flucht aus dem Hamsterrad und ein Manifest für eine neue Gewichtung zwischen Leben und Arbeiten.

Minerals existed long before any forms of life, playing a key role in the origin and evolution of life; an interaction with biological systems that we are only now beginning to understand. Exploring the traditional strand of mineralogy, which emphasises the important mineral families, the well-established analytical methods (optical microscopy and X-ray diffraction) and the dramatic developments made in techniques over recent decades, David Vaughan also introduces the modern strand of mineralogy, which explores the role minerals play in the plate tectonic cycle and how they interact with the living world. Demonstrating how minerals can be critical for human health and illness by providing essential nutrients and releasing poisons, Vaughan explores the multitude of ways in which minerals have aided our understanding of the world. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Earth Science Heritage Sites and Community Development in India is being published for the first time. The book gives a description of the various heritage sites present in different Geological Formations embracing a period of more than 1500 m.y. when the first Precambrian Microbial Communities were recognized. There is no Book of this nature dealing with Earth Science Heritage Sites in India. The present volume describes significant heritage sites containing extinct fauna and flora and minerals preserved in the rocks of different Geological Ages. Conservation of these significant heritage sites has been neglected with the result the valuable records on the Biodiversity of the ancient past is gradually being lost. The author stresses the need to conserve and protect the legacy left behind by Nature in the form of heritage sites by participation of not only scientists but also non-governmental agencies including various people associated with community development projects in the vicinity of heritage sites. A number of illustrations, maps and photographs of some of the significant heritage sites have been included. It is sincerely, hoped that this book will be a valuable contribution on Earth Heritage Sites in India.

For many students with no science background, environmental geology may be one of the only science courses they ever take. Living With Earth: An Introduction to Environmental Geology is ideal for those students, fostering a better understanding of how they interact with Earth and how their actions can affect Earth's environmental health. The informal, reader-friendly presentation is organized around a few unifying perspectives: how the various Earth systems interact with one another; how Earth affects people (creating hazards but also providing essential resources); and how people affect Earth. Greater emphasis is placed on environment and sustainability than on geology, unlike other texts on the subject. Essential scientific foundations are presented - but the ultimate goal is to connect students proactively to their role as stakeholders in Earth's future.
