Geochemical Investigations in Earth and Space Science: A Tribute to Isaac R. Kaplan is the
written product of a technical session organized for the 2002 Geological Society of America in
recognition of Isaac (Ian) Kaplan’s many contributions to various fields of geochemistry. This
volume is a collection of 29 papers written by former students, post-doctoral researchers, friends
and colleagues from countries all over the world (including Sweden, Japan, Taiwan, New
Zealand, Australia, Israel and the United States)....
There are five Quaternary sedimentary sequences in the Red River Delta, Vietnam. The forming of each sequence is related to transgression and regression phases. The sequences, which was formed in transgression period, composed mainly of fine grained size leading to the water bearing capacity is very low and plays a role as aquicludes. Besides, in these fine grain size layers, the contents of arsenic and iron are high, especially in dark clay, silty clay rich in organic material ...
Petrology, New Perspectives and Applications is designed for advanced graduate courses and professionals in petrology. The book includes eight chapters that are focused on the recent advances and application of modern petrologic and geochemical methods for the understanding of igneous, metamorphic and even sedimentary rocks. Research studies contained in this volume provide an overview of application of modern petrologic techniques to rocks of diverse origins.
The living organism
which will be deeply affected are shredders, which feed on coarse sedimentary detritus, and
collector-gatherers, which feed on fine sedimentary detritus, were the macroinvertebrate
functional feeding groups are most adversely affected. Furthermore, during the industrial
process, high amount of hydrofluoric acid (HF) are used to separate different sandy
materials which are subsequently used for manufacturing glass at industrial plants.
Therefore, high concentration of fluoride ion and suspended inorganic matter discharged by
the industrial into the study site....
Estuaries are areas of high productivity, crucial in the life histories of many fish,
invertebrates, and birds, for example, and the sustainability of estuarine biodiversity
is vital to the ecological and economic health of coastal regions. On the other
hand, estuarine ecosystems are exposed to toxic anthropogenic effluents transported
by rivers from remote and nearby conurbations and industrial and agricultural concerns.
Nature Coal is a dark brown to black sedimentary rock derived primarily from the unoxidized remains of carbon-bearing plant tissues. It is a complex, combustible mixture of organic, chemical, and mineral materials found in strata, or "seams," in the earth, consisting of a wide variety of physical and chemical properties.
