Eastern Sea of Vietnam is the world's largest semi-open sea and is bounded by archipelagos, islands, mainland and connected partially with Pacific and Indian Ocean. Its total water surface area is about 2,974,600km2. Vietnamese and foreign geoscientists have researched, got samples and mapped the geological map of Eastern Sea since 1960s but no guidance or right method was carried out to map, especially in presenting geological units on geological map.
Although in some respects more technical in their subjects and style than Darwin's "Journal," the books here reprinted will never lose their value and interest for the originality of the observations they contain. Many parts of them are admirably adapted for giving an insight into problems regarding the structure and changes of the earth's surface, and in fact they form a charming introduction to physical geology and physiography in their application to special domains.
The very latest research is uncovering a stream of evidence revealing evolution in action - from the actual observation of a species splitting into two, to new fossil discoveries, to the deciphering of the evidence stored in our genome. Why Evolution is True weaves together the many threads of modern work in genetics, palaeontology,geology, molecular biology, anatomy, and development to demonstrate the 'indelible stamp' of the processes first proposed by Darwin. It is a crisp, lucid, and accessible statement that will leave no one with an open mind in any doubt about the truth of evolution....

In a classic paper by the late Yale historian of
science, Derek De Solla Price (1965), based
mainly on the study of citations in a single scientific
research field, it was shown how citations in
a developing research area have a strong
'immediacy effect'.1 Citation was found to be at
a maximum for papers about two-and-a-half
years old, and the 'major work of a paper ... [is]
finished after 10 years', as judged by citations.
Thousands of years ago European’s were transporting tin from Cornwall in
southwest England to Crete in the eastern Mediterranean to create bronze by
alloying tin and copper to create a new and more useful metal allow. Thousands
of years from now humans we will still be using metals.
This handbook is intended to be a resource for people affected by landslides to acquire further knowledge, especially about the conditions that are unique to their neighborhoods and communities. Considerable literature and research are available concerning landslides, but unfortunately little of it is synthesized and integrated to address the geographically unique geologic and climatic conditions around the globe.
The subject of rock mechanics started in the 1950s from a rock physics base
and gradually became a discipline in its own right during the 1960s. As
explained in the Preface, rock mechanics is the subject concerned with the
response of rock to an applied disturbance, which is considered here as an
engineering, i.e. a man-induced, disturbance. For a natural disturbance,
rock mechanics would apply to the deformation of rocks in a structural
geology context, i.e.
