E-BOOK
Notes: The continental crust is our archive of Earth history, and the store of many natural resources; however, many key questions about its formation and evolution remain debated and unresolved: - What processes are involved in the formation, differentiation and evolution of continental crust, and how have these changed throughout Earth history? - How are plate tectonics, the supercontinent cycle and mantle cooling linked with crustal evolution? - What are the rates of generation and destruction of the continental crust through time? - How representative is the preserved geological record? A range of approaches are used to address these questions, including field-based studies, petrology and geochemistry, geophysical methods, palaeomagnetism, whole-rock and accessory-phase isotope chemistry and geochronology. Case studies range from the Eoarchaean to Phanerozoic, and cover many different cratons and orogenic belts from across the continents.

Fundamental Controls on Fluid Flow in Carbonates: Current Workflows to Emerging Technologies (2015)
London : The Geological Society
Notes: This volume highlights key challenges for fluid-flow prediction in carbonate reservoirs, the approaches currently employed to address these challenges and developments in fundamental science and technology. The papers span methods and case studies that highlight workflows and emerging technologies in the fields of geology, geophysics, petrophysics, reservoir modelling and computer science. Topics include: detailed pore-scale studies that explore fundamental processes and applications of imaging and flow modelling at the pore scale; case studies of diagenetic processes with complementary perspectives from reactive transport modelling; novel methods for rock typing; petrophysical studies that investigate the impact of diagenesis and fault-rock properties on acoustic signatures; mechanical modelling and seismic imaging of faults in carbonate rocks; modelling geological influences on seismic anisotropy; novel approaches to geological modelling; methods to represent key geological details in reservoir simulations and advances in computer visualization, analytics and interactions for geoscience and engineering.

Magnetic Susceptibility Application: A Window onto Ancient Environments and Climatic Variations (2014)
London : The Geological Society
Notes: This volume concerns the application of magnetic susceptibility to sediments and sedimentary rocks. Contributions deal with the origin of the magnetic minerals, with the application of magnetic susceptibility as a palaeoenvironmental or palaeoclimatic proxy or as a tool to provide astronomical calibration in order to improve the chronology of a selected period.

E-BOOK
Notes: Ore deposits form by a variety of natural processes that concentrate elements into a volume that can be economically mined. Their type, character and abundance reflect the environment in which they formed and thus they preserve key evidence for the evolution of magmatic and tectonic processes, the state of the atmosphere and hydrosphere, and the evolution of life over geological time. This volume presents 13 papers on topical subjects in ore deposit research viewed in the context of Earth evolution. These diverse, yet interlinked, papers cover topics including: controls on the temporal and spatial distribution of ore deposits; the sources of fluid, gold and other components of orogenic gold deposits; the degree of oxygenation in the Neoproterozoic ocean; bacterial immobilization of gold in the semi-arid near-surface environment; and mineral resources for the future, including issues of resource estimation, sustainability of supply and the criticality of certain elements to society.

Volcanism and Tectonism Across the Inner Solar System (2015)
London : The Geological Society
Notes: Volcanism and tectonism are the dominant endogenic means by which planetary surfaces change. This book aims to encompass the broad range in character of volcanism, tectonism, faulting and associated interactions observed on planetary bodies across the inner solar system - a region that includes Mercury, Venus, Earth, the Moon, Mars and asteroids. The diversity and breadth of landforms produced by volcanic and tectonic processes is enormous, and varies across the inner solar system bodies. As a result, the selection of prevailing landforms and their underlying formational processes that are described and highlighted in this volume are but a primer to the expansive field of planetary volcanism and tectonism. This Special Publication features 22 research articles about volcanic and tectonic processes manifest across the inner solar system.

Partitionierung und Transmutation nuklearer Abfälle : Chancen und Risiken in Forschung und Anwendung (2014)

Branch Library: GFZ Library
Notes: Als die deutsche Bundesregierung im Juni 2011 die Energiewende verkündete, läutete sie damit gleichzeitig das Ende der Kernenergienutzung zur Stromproduktion ein. Bis zum Jahr 2022 soll kein deutsches Kernkraftwerk mehr Strom produzieren. Allerdings ist die Frage nach der Endlagerung radioaktiver Abfälle nicht beantwortet. Bislang ist weltweit noch kein Endlager für wärmeentwickelnde Abfälle in Betrieb. Hinsichtlich der Langzeitsicherheit eines Endlagers ist neben Art und Menge der Abfälle auch die Dauer entscheidend, über die die Abfälle sicher aufbewahrt werden müssen. Eine Möglichkeit, das Langzeit-Gefährdungspotenzial wärmeentwickelnder Abfälle zu verringern, könnte Partitionierung und Transmutation (P&T) sein, eine Technik, die sich derzeit in Forschung und Entwicklung befindet.In einem interdisziplinären Forschungsprojekt wurden die technischen und gesellschaftlichen Chancen und Risiken von P&T anhand von Szenarien untersucht. Das übergeordnete Ziel war es, eine sachgerechte und ausgewogene Grundlage zu erarbeiten, anhand derer entschieden werden kann, wie sich Deutschland in Fragen der P&T-Forschung zukünftig positionieren möchte. In der vorliegenden acatech POSITION werden Empfehlungen zum künftigen Umgang mit P&T an Akteure aus Politik, Wirtschaft und Wissenschaft gegeben.

Arctic climate and water change : Information relevance for assessment and adaptation (2013)
Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology, Stockholm University
Call number: AWI 13-0052
Location: AWI
Branch Library: AWI Library
Keywords: Hydrology ; Monitoring ; Climate Change ; Adaptatation ; Arctic ; Arktis
Notes: The Arctic is subject to growing economic and political interest. Meanwhile, its water and climate systems are in rapid transformation. Relevant and accessible information about water and climate is therefore vital to detect, understand and adapt to the changes. This thesis investigates hydrological monitoring systems, climate model data, and our understanding of hydro-climatic change, for adaptation to water system changes in the Arctic. Results indicate a lack of harmonized water chemistry data, which may impede efforts to understand transport and origin of key waterborne constituents. Further development of monitoring cannot rely only on a reconciliation of observations and projections on where climate change will be the most severe, as they diverge in this regard. Climate model simulations of drainage basin temperature and precipitation have improved between two recent model generations, but large inaccuracies remain for precipitation projections. Late 20th-century discharge changes in major Arctic rivers generally show excess of water relative to precipitation changes. This indicates a possible contribution of stored water from permafrost or groundwater to sea level rise. The river contribution to the increasing Arctic Ocean freshwater inflow matches that of glaciers, which underlines the importance of considering all sources when assessing change. To provide adequate information for research and policy, Arctic hydrological and hydrochemical monitoring needs to be extended, better integrated and made more accessible. This especially applies to hydrochemistry monitoring, where a more complete set of monitored basins is motivated, including a general extension for the large unmonitored areas close to the Arctic Ocean. Improvements in climate model parameterizations are needed, in particular for precipitation projections. Finally, further water-focused data and modeling efforts are required to resolve the source of excess discharge in Arctic rivers.
