The destruction of Sodom, Gomorrah, and Jericho geological, climatological, and archaeological background by David Neev ( )
7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Among the most widely known of stories relating the destruction of entire cities is the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah some 4350 years ago. These two cities, and Jericho as well, are situated along a major fault extending 1100 kilometres from the axis of the Red Sea to Turkey. Earthquakes, volcanic activity, variations by hundreds of metres of the level of the Dead Sea, and oscillations between arid and wet climates have affected the human settlements of the area for more than 10,000 years. In reviewing the geology, biblical paleogeography, and limnology of the region, this book will shed light on the tectonic and climatic changes of the past 6000 years and their control of cultural successions in the Middle East. The geologic study is the result of the author's collaborative research over many years; the receonstruction of human history is guided by the work of biblical archaeologists. While similar attempts to interpret the physical and geographic aspects of the story have been made during the past 2000 years, this latest contribution, unlike others, is based on solid scientific data
A coastal pond; studied by oceanographic methods by K. O Emery ( Book )

The geology of the Atlantic Ocean by K. O Emery ( Book )
13 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is a unique account of the geologic development of a young oceanicbasin and its adjacent marginal seas. Combining widely dispersed data and concepts with new investigations made especially for this book, it presents the reader with a detailed, thoroughly integrated study of the topography, igneous composition, structure, and sediments of the Atlantic. Effects of plate movements and changing climates upon water movements and contents of organisms and sediments are included. In addition, the potential economic value of ocean resources is carefully evaluated. A detailed bibliography complements the text

Morphology of the rocky members of the solar system by Elazar Uchupi ( Book )
9 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Using new satellite imageries, chemical and geophysical data obtained by NASA and other space agencies, the authors pre- sent an updated concept of the origin of the Solar System. This excellently written protrayal focuses on the morphology of planets and moons and the reasons for their differences, looking at the Solar System as one entity rather than a group of individual planets. The main field of comparison is their morphology supple- mented by data in chemistry and geophysics from space probes and from the Earth, including a chapter on Venus based on data recorded by the Magellan mission. Many compiled maps and photographs with details from satellite imagery complete an exciting book not only for scientists in planetology and astronomy but also geomorphologists, hydrologists and the interested public
Seismic reflection profiles along the drill holes on the continental margin off Florida by K. O Emery ( Book )
5 editions published between 1964 and 1968 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Continuous seismic reflection profiles along the line of JOIDES drill holes were adjusted for the velocity of sound at depth, as measured in one of the drill holes and determined at nearby seismic refraction stations. The adjusted reflecting horizons agree in many respects with the stratigraphic section which includes strata of Miocene, Oligocene, Eocene, and Paleocene age, as indicated by samples from the drill holes. The reflection profiles provide continuity of data between the drill holes and extend to much greater depths than the drill; thus they supplement and amplify information derived from the drill samples. Both kinds of data show that the continental shelf is underlain by a Tertiary sequence that has prograded seaward so that the foreset beds form the past and present Florida-Hatteras Slope. No evidence of faulting at the Florida-Hatteras Slope is exhibited by the reflecting horizons. A shallow ridge (or anticline), probably of Cretaceous strata, may underlie the middle part of the continental shelf. The seismic profile between two drill holes on the Blake Plateau contains reflecting horizons that correspond fairly well to the tops of Oligocene and Paleocene strata that were sampled by the drill. These strata continue beyond the plateau, and they partly mantle the Blake Escarpment. Deeper reflecting horizons lie within the Cretaceous sequence, and some may even be older than Cretaceous; they are truncated by the Tertiary beds that mantle the Blake Escarpment. (Author)
