Principles of Geology / by Renneboog, Richard,editor.; Salem Press,issuing body.;
Includes bibliographical references and index."Geology explores the science about the solid Earth, the rocks that comprise it, and the processes by which they change over time. This volume also provides coverage of other Earth sciences, including hydrology and the atmospheric sciences, as they integrate into a major aspect of Earth's system and planetary science. Content includes broad categories of geology, as well as the wide variety of methods and tools used by geologists. Major categories in Principles of Geology include principles, historical discoveries, the Big Bang event, continental drift, geochemistry, resource recovery, paleontology, and extraterrestrial geology. Principles of Geology includes 130 entries arranged in A to Z order to help make finding a topic of interest easy. Entries related to basic principles and concepts include a list of the Fields of Study covered by the article; an Abstract that provides a brief, concrete summary of the topic and its significance; a list of Key Concepts with definitions, important to a proper understanding of the topic; and a detailed Essay that provides extensive background on the topic and explores its significance to the field of geology; and a list of Further Reading for those who wish to pursue the topic in more depth." --"Introduces students and researchers to the fundamentals of these scientific topics using easy-to-understand language for a solid background and a deeper understanding and appreciation. Major categories in Principles of Geology include principles, historical discoveries, the Big Bang event, continental drift, geochemistry, resource recovery, paleontology, and extraterrestrial geology"--Andesitic rocks -- Aquifers -- Asteroids -- Athabasca oil sands -- Basaltic rocks -- Batholiths -- Beaches and coastal processes -- Biogenic sedimentary rocks -- Bolides -- Boltwood uses radioactivity to determine ages of rocks -- Carbonate compensation depths -- Carbonate minerals -- Carbonatites -- Clays -- Clays and clay minerals -- Contact metamorphism -- Coriolis effect -- Crystals -- The "deep-impact" mission: geology of a comet -- Deep-sea sedimentation -- Deglaciation -- Deltas -- Desert landforms -- Desert pavement -- Desertification -- Deserts -- Diagenesis -- Diamond -- Diatomite -- Doell and Dalrymple discover the magnetic reversals of Earth's poles -- Drainage basins -- Earthquake prediction -- Earthquakes -- Earth's crust -- Earth's internal structure -- Earth's moon -- Economic geology -- Engineering seismology -- Evaporites -- External processes -- Extraterrestrial resources -- Floods -- Fluvial and karst processes -- The Gaia hypothesis -- Gem minerals -- Geochemical cycles -- Geologic timescale -- Geology -- German meteor expedition discovers the mid-Atlantic ridge -- Glaciations -- Glaciers -- Gondwanaland and Laurasia -- Granitic rocks -- Gutenberg discovers Earth's mantle-outer core boundary -- Heezen and Ewing discover the midoceanic ridge -- Hess, Harry Hammond -- Hess identifies the cause of continental drift -- Hutton proposes the geological theory of uniformitarianism -- Igneous processes, rocks, and mineral deposits -- Internal geologic processes -- International system of units -- Kimberlites -- Lehmann discovers Earth's inner core -- Limestone -- Lithosphere -- Lomonosov issues the first catalog of minerals -- Lunar exploration --Magma crystallization -- Marble -- Mars exploration rovers -- Mean sea level -- Metamictization -- Metamorphic processes, rocks, and mineral deposits -- Mineralization and hydrothermal solutions -- Mineralogy -- Mohs hardness scale -- Mountain building -- Nesosilicates and sorosilicates -- New horizons Pluto-Kuiper belt mission -- Nonsilicates -- Nucleosynthesis -- Ocean acidification -- Ocean margins -- Oceans' origin -- Oil shale and tar sands -- Oldham and Mohorovičić discover Earth's interior structure -- Ophiolites -- Orbicular rocks -- Paleontology -- Physical properties of rocks -- Placer deposits -- Planet formation -- Planetary exploration -- Planetary interiors -- Plate tectonics -- Plutonic rocks and mineral deposits -- Pumice -- Pyroclastic flows -- Quartz and silica -- Reefs -- Regional metamorphism -- Richter, Charles Francis -- Richter develops a scale for measuring earthquake strength -- Riverbed forms -- Salt domes -- Sand and gravel -- Sandstone -- Seafloor spreading -- Secondary enrichment of mineral deposits -- Sedimentary processes, rocks, and mineral deposits -- Shale -- Silicates -- Siliciclastic rocks -- Slate -- Soils -- Steno presents his theories of fossils and dynamic geology -- Streams and rivers -- Structure and physical properties of minerals -- Subduction and orogeny -- Sub-seafloor metamorphism -- Teilhard de Chardin, Pierre -- Turbidity currents and submarine fans -- Ultrahigh-pressure metamorphism -- Ultrapotassic rocks -- Volcanoes -- Weathering -- Wegener, Alfred -- Wegener proposes the theory of continental drift -- Xenoliths -- Zeolites.High school and undergraduate level students.
