Essentials of Medical Geology reviews the essential concepts and practical tools required to tackle environmental and public health problems. It is organized into four main sections. The first section deals with the fundamentals of environmental biology, the natural and anthropogenic sources of health elements that impact health and illustrate key biogeochemical transformations. The second section looks at the geological processes influencing human exposure to specific elements, such as radon, arsenic, fluorine, selenium and iodine. The third section presents the concepts and techniques of pathology, toxicology and epidemiology that underpin investigations into the human health effects of exposure to naturally occurring elements. The last section provides a toolbox of analytical approaches to environmental research and medical geology investigations. Essentials of Medical Geology was first published in 2005 and has since won three prestigious rewards. The book has been recognized as a key book in both medical and geology fields and is widely used as textbook and reference book in these fields. For this revised edition, editors and authors have updated the content that evolved a lot during 2005 and added two new chapters, on public health, and agriculture and health. This updated volume can now continue to be used as a textbook and reference book for all who are interested in this important topic and its impacts the health and wellbeing of many millions of people all over the world. · Addresses key topics at the intersection of environmental science and human health · Developed by 60 international experts from 20 countries and edited by professionals from the International Medical Geology Association (IMGA) · Written in non-technical language for a broad spectrum of readers, ranging from students and professional researchers to policymakers and the general public · Includes color illustrations throughout, references for further investigation and other aids to the reader

Die Alpen spielen in der Geschichte der Geologie eine zentrale Rolle. In diesem Gebirge können die unterschiedlichsten geologischen Phänomene besonders gut beobachtet werden. Dieses Buch gibt zuerst den modernen plattentektonischen Rahmen. Anschließend werden die Gesteinsverbände des kristallinen Grundgebirges sowie der paläozoischen, mesozoischen und känozoischen Sedimentabfolgen diskutiert. Der tektonische Bau von Jura bis Po-Becken wird samt Tiefenstruktur, Metamorphose und orogener Entwicklung beleuchtet. Die jüngste geologische Geschichte schließlich geht auf die pliozänen Flusssysteme, die großen pleistozänen Vereisungen, die Landschaftsgestaltung und die rezenten Bewegungen ein. Die reiche Bebilderung mit Karten, Profilen, stratigrafischen Kolonnenprofilen und Entwicklungsschemata kann als Grundlage für Exkursionen und Kurse dienen.

This book presents research in Geoscience Education focusing on indoor and outdoor environments in which teaching geoscience gains particular relevance, significance and contextualization. The research areas that are presented throughout the thirteen chapters cover a wide variety of subjects ranging from educational resources and fieldwork to science models. Chapters discuss specific geoscience topics such as earthquakes, rocks, fossils and minerals. Other chapters present a more interdisciplinary approach addressing topics that aren’t usually examined, such as geomedicine and geoethics, with a specific focus on sustainable development and their alignment with the school curricula. Throughout the book readers can find research-based arguments illustrated with practical examples, which will help them to innovate in their curriculum development area, classroom practices and pre and in-service teachers’ education. The book challenges readers to improve Geoscience Education by changing the ways of teaching, by enabling students to exploit their natural curiosity, and by spurring a learning process that should not be confined to the classroom but rather maintained throughout life.
