Pierres tombant du ciel nominees meteorites, pierres lunaires rapportees par les astronautes depuis quinze ans deja, pierres prelevees dans les abysses oceaniques, pierres du Groenland ou pierres de feu des volcans islandais, toutes les pierres ont une histoire. Cette histoire debute avec le Big-Bang il у а 15 milliards d'annees, se cristallise avec la formation de la Terre et du Soleil il у а 4,5 milliards d'annees, se poursuit avec I'apparition de la vie pour donner naissance a notre planete telle que nous la connaissons aujourd'hui. Claude Allegre nous convie ici a une nouvelle vision de I'histoire du monde, fondee sur une discipline encore neuve, les sciences de la Terre, dont il est I'un des meilleurs specialistes au monde.

Science has worked hard to piece together the story of the evolution of our world up to this point, but only recently have we developed the understanding and the tools to describe the entire life cycle of our planet. Peter D. Ward and Donald Brownlee, a geologist and an astronomer respectively, are in the vanguard of the new field of astrobiology. Combining their knowledge of how the critical sustaining systems of our planet evolve through time with their understanding of how stars and solar systems grow and change throughout their own life cycles, the authors tell the story of the second half of Earth’s life. In this masterful melding of groundbreaking research and captivating, eloquent science writing, Ward and Brownlee provide a comprehensive portrait of Earth’s life cycle that allows us to understand and appreciate how the planet sustains itself today, and offers us a glimpse of our place in the cosmic order.

This book is about one woman's vision and commitment to learning to live sustainably and in harmony with life on Earth. Since 1976 Anna Edey has made one astonishing discovery after another, developing methods of sustainable living under the name Solviva Solar-Dynamic, Bio-Benign Design. The results of her experiments and methods have again and again exceeded highest hopes and expectations. Solviva describes the exciting trials and triumphs of her journey and offers convincing proof that we can, with today's technology and knowledge, live in ways that reduce pollution and depletion of resources by 80 percent or more, and at the same time reduce the cost of living and improve the quality of life in urban and rural locations. Solviva contains 155 color illustrations and detailed instructions and recommendations to help others along their own journeys toward living sustainably.

Remote Sensing for the Earth Sciences is a comprehensive, up-to-date resource for geologists, geophysicists, and all earth scientists. Produced in cooperation with the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, it is the third volume of the Manual of Remote Sensing, Third Edition, the widely accepted basic reference work in the field. It brings together contributions from an international team of scientists active in remote sensing and earth sciences research. The book is organized for quick access to topics of particular interest, beginning with coverage of spectral characteristics that focuses on the theory of rock, mineral, soil, and vegetation spectra, as well as planetary geology. The second section on data analysis is devoted to procedures used in information extraction and techniques used in the visual display of data, particularly in the integration of various geospatial data. The third section addresses applications of remote sensing in areas such as...
The earlier editions of this book have been used by successive generations of students for more than 20 years, and it is the standard text on the subject in most British universities and many others throughout the world. The study of sediments and sedimentary rocks continues to be a core topic in the Earth Sciences and this book aims to provide a concise account of their composition, mineralogy, textures, structures, diagenesis and depositional environments. This latest edition is noteworthy for the inclusion of 16 plates with 54 colour photomicrographs of sedimentary rocks in thin-section. These bring sediments to life and show their beauty and colorful appearance down the microscope; they will aid the student enormously in laboratory petrographic work. The text has been revised where necessary and the reference and further reading lists brought up-to-date. New tables have been included to help undergraduates with rock and thin-section description and interpretation.
Many studies have concluded that the major source of energy for the global economy in the first half of the 21st century will be natural gas. With natural gas becoming more and more important there is increasing demand for information, yet less and less available material on this subject. The Natural Gas Engineering Handbook is the only book available that covers this subject in a comprehensive and practical way. This book covers the full scope of natural gas engineering, from gas reservoir engineering to gas production systems to gas processing. It adapts a computer-assisted approach, which is current practice in the industry and is severely lacking in other books on natural gas engineering.
