  • The first version of this text was written to serve as lecture notes for a first term geology course in “Minerals and Rocks” at Aarhus Universityin Denmarkin 2003. In Aarhus this course is accompanied by a general “Introduction to Geology” course that presents, for example, the structure of the Earth, plate tectonics and paleontology. These topics are therefore not treated here, and some knowledge of the Earth´s structure and plate tectonicsis assumed.

  • Coal formation has been described as “an inefficiency in the carbon cycle,” (Barghoorn, 1952) when carbon from plants remains in terrestrial sediments and is not recycled to the atmosphere (Figure 1.1.1). Coal is, by definition, a readily combustible rock containing more than 50% by weight and 70% by volume of carbonaceous material (Schopf, 1966). Another definition describes coal as a combustible solid, usually stratified, which originated from the accumulation, burial, and compaction of partially decomposed vegetation in previous geologic ages (Hendricks, 1945)....

  • Many of the Earth’s elements travel or cycle through the natural environment. This means that they are transported from the soil into nearby lakes and rivers, and then evaporate from the water into the air, to be transported by wind and eventually re-deposited to the surface where the cycle starts over again. Mercury cycles through the environment in this way (see Figure 5). An atom of mercury may begin its journey by being eroded from rocks on the shore of a lake or by being vented into the atmosphere as mercury vapour from a volcanic eruption. These are natural emissions.
