This new edition of the well-established Kearey and Brooks text isfully updated to reflect the important developments in geophysicalmethods since the production of the previous edition. The broadscope of previous editions is maintained, with even greater clarityof explanations from the revised text and extensively revisedfigures. Each of the major geophysical methods is treatedsystematically developing the theory behind the method anddetailing the instrumentation, field data acquisition techniques,data processing and interpretation methods. The practicalapplication of each method to such diverse exploration applicationsas petroleum, groundwater, engineering, environmental and forensicis shown by case histories. The mathematics required in order to understand the text ispurposely kept to a minimum, so the book is suitable for coursestaken in geophysics by all undergraduate students. It will also beof use to postgraduate students who might wish to includegeophysics in their studies and to all professional geologists whowish to discover the breadth of the subject in connection withtheir own work.

Looking Into the Earth comprehensively describes the principles and applications of both 'global' and 'exploration' geophysics on all scales. It forms an introduction to geophysics suitable for those who do not necessarily intend to become professional geophysicists, including geologists, civil engineers, environmental scientists, and field archaeologists. The book is organised into two parts: Part 1 describes the geophysical methods, while Part 2 illustrates their use in a number of extended case histories. Mathematical and physical principles are introduced at an elementary level, and then developed as necessary. Student questions and exercises are included at the end of each chapter. The book is aimed primarily at introductory and intermediate university students taking courses in geology, earth science, environmental science, and engineering. It will also form an excellent introductory textbook in geophysics departments, and will help practising geologists, archaeologists and engineers understand what geophysics can offer their work.

This manual provides an introduction to geophysical exploration for engineering, geological, and environmental (to include Hazardous, Toxic and Radioactive Waste (HTRW)) investigations. Descriptions and guidance are provided for the geophysical methods typically used in these investigations. The manual furnishes a broad overview of geophysical applications to common engineering, environmental and geological problems. Descriptions of the most commonly conducted geophysical procedures are given. These contents are not proposed to explicitly develop field procedures and data reduction techniques for geophysical surveys. Chapter 2 develops the procedural evaluation, use, and deployment of the generalized geophysical approach. Subsequent chapters address particular geophysical methodologies.

Freie Radikale Warum Wissenschaftler sich nicht an Regeln halten

In der Wissenschaft geht alles Wir stellen uns die Wissenschaften und besonders die Naturwissenschaften oft als den Inbegriff der Vernunft vor: kühl, logisch, objektiv und frei von menschlichen Fehlern und Gefühlen. Doch Wissenschaft wird von Wissenschaftlern gemacht − und die sind nichts von alledem, sagt Michael Brooks. Für die bedeutsamen Fortschritte in der Forschung sorgen fast immer die subversiven Radikalen, die sich ganz ihrer Mission verschreiben und lieber Revolutionen anzetteln, als sich an die Regeln zu halten. Um einen Durchbruch zu erzielen oder an die Spitze zu gelangen, scheuten die berühmtesten Denker vor nichts zurück: Einstein folgte mystischen Visionen, Galilei täuschte und betrog, Steve Jobs nahm Drogen. Einige führten gewagte Experimente mit sich selbst und mit anderen durch, und manche kamen dabei sogar zu Tode. Der Bestsellerautor Michael Brooks belegt seine These an zahlreichen Beispielen – und mit einem Augenzwinkern. Er zeigt, dass die wirklich bahnbrechende Wissenschaft nur selten das Ergebnis penibler Forschungsarbeit ist. Sie bricht vielmehr alle Konventionen, schert sich wenig um die Folgen und zelebriert ihre geheime Anarchie. Brooks zeigt uns die radikalen Forscher: verrückt, böse und gefährlich. The Times

An Introduction to Applied and Environmental Geophysics, 2nd Edition, describes the rapidly developing field of near-surface geophysics. The book covers a range of applications including mineral, hydrocarbon and groundwater exploration, and emphasises the use of geophysics in civil engineering and in environmental investigations. Following on from the international popularity of the first edition, this new, revised, and much expanded edition contains additional case histories, and descriptions of geophysical techniques not previously included in such textbooks. The level of mathematics and physics is deliberately kept to a minimum but is described qualitatively within the text. Relevant mathematical expressions are separated into boxes to supplement the text. The book is profusely illustrated with many figures, photographs and line drawings, many never previously published. Key source literature is provided in an extensive reference section; a list of web addresses for key organisations is also given in an appendix as a valuable additional resource. Covers new techniques such as Magnetic Resonance Sounding, Controlled- Source EM, shear-wave seismic refraction, and airborne gravity and EM techniques Now includes radioactivity surveying and more discussions of down-hole geophysical methods; hydrographic and Sub-Bottom Profiling surveying; and UneXploded Ordnance detection Expanded to include more forensic, archaeological, glaciological, agricultural and bio-geophysical applications Includes more information on physio-chemical properties of geological, engineering and environmental materials Takes a fully global approach Companion website with additional resources available at www.wiley.com/go/reynolds/introduction2e Accessible core textbook for undergraduates as well as an ideal reference for industry professionals The second edition is ideal for students wanting a broad introduction to the subject and is also designed for practising civil and geotechnical engineers, geologists, archaeologists and environmental scientists who need an overview of modern geophysical methods relevant to their discipline. While the first edition was the first textbook to provide such a comprehensive coverage of environmental geophysics, the second edition is even more far ranging in terms of techniques, applications and case histories.

Die großen Fragen behandeln grundlegende Probleme und Konzepte in Wissenschaft und Philosophie, die Forscher und Denker seit jeher umtreiben. Anspruch der ambitionierten Reihe ist es, die Antworten auf diese Fragen zu präsentieren und damit die wichtigsten Gedanken der Menschheit in einzigartigen Übersichten zu bündeln. Im vorliegenden Band Physik beleuchtet Michael Brooks die oft verwirrenden Fragen dieser Disziplin, sei es zu Quantenphysik, Relativität oder der Natur der Realität. Die großen Fragen sind: Wozu ist Physik da?, Was ist Zeit?, Was geschah mit Schrödingers Katze?, Warum fällt der Apfel nach unten?, Sind feste Stoffe wirklich fest?, Warum gibt es nichts umsonst?, Ist letztlich alles Zufall?, Was ist Gottes Teilchen?, Bin ich einmalig?, Können wir durch die Zeit reisen?, Wird das Erdmagnetfeld verschwinden?, Warum ist E gleich mc2?, Verändert ein Blick das Universum?, Ist Chaos gleich Katastrophe?, Was ist Licht?, Geht es in der Stringtheorie um Bindfäden?, Warum gibt es überhaupt etwas?, Leben wir in einer Simulation?, Welche ist die stärkste Naturkraft?, Was ist das wahre Wesen der Realität?
