Download Amazonian Dark Earths: Explorations in Space and Time by William I. Woods, Bruno Glaser (auth.), Dr. Bruno Glaser, PDF

By William I. Woods, Bruno Glaser (auth.), Dr. Bruno Glaser, Professor William I. Woods (eds.)

The regenerative traits pointed out in prehistoric, anthropogenic Amazonian darkish earths recommend that notoriously infertile tropical soils should be significantly superior. Soil enhancement practices by means of historic Amerindians allowed them to domesticate the land intensively, with no need to continually transparent new fields from wooded area. As expanding populations position ever larger strain on tropical forests, this legacy of wealthy, 'living' soils warrants additional learn within the look for high-yield, land-intensive, but sustainable kinds of administration. The overseas staff of individuals to this quantity presents a number of stances centering on points of the beginning, distribution, variability, patience, and use of Amazonian darkish earths.

Download Groundwater in the Celtic Regions: Studies in Hard-Rock and by N. S. Robins PDF

By N. S. Robins

Precise book 182. Groundwater within the Celtic areas: reports in hard-rock and Quaternary hydrogeology. this can be the 1st try to compile the hydrogeological matters dealing with Celtic areas, and to explain the existing hydrogeological environments in those components. classes from those geographical parts should be utilized to unravel difficulties in comparable geological terrain in other places. The publication covers the varied variety of hydrogeological environments that take place within the Celtic areas of england and eire. those comprise hard-rock aquifers of reduce Palaeozoic and Precambrian age, in general ruled by way of fracture circulation inside of a shallow area of weathering; Carboniferous limestone aquifers, frequently characterised by way of conduit movement in karstic structures; dual-porosity Permo-Triassic sandstone aquifers; and Quaternary deposits, lots of which shape vital shallow granular aquifers. The booklet addresses a couple of present concerns universal to the Celtic areas, together with: groundwater defense guidelines, groundwater administration in karst aquifers, groundwater improvement in Quaternary aquifers, groundwater review in data-scarce aquifers and groundwater offers to small island groups. Readership: Hydrogeologists, environmental scientists and water engineers operating within the Celtic areas. Practitioners concerned with fixing difficulties in hard-rock and Quaternary hydrogeology. compatible for postgraduates in hydrogeology and environmental technology.
