The destruction of Sodom, Gomorrah, and Jericho geological, climatological, and archaeological background by David Neev( )
9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,192 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 )
17 editions published between 1969 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The geology of the Atlantic Ocean by K. O Emery( Book )
14 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 606 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
Western North Atlantic Ocean: topography, rocks, structure, water, life, and sediments by K. O Emery( Book )
10 editions published in 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The sea off southern California; a modern habitat of petroleum by K. O Emery( Book )
4 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sea levels, land levels, and tide gauges by K. O Emery( Book )
10 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Changes in sea level caused by global warming can be disastrous to modern civilization. Therefore, it is important to use accurate and reliable methods to monitor any change. During this century, and, in particular, the last three decades, tide-gauge records have been used to show these changes related to the world's oceans. Aubrey and Emery suggest, however, that tidal gauges should not be used unquestioningly as a benchmark for measuring eustatic sea-level changes. Tectonism, subsidence, ocean current variability, and human activity can, and do, affect the accuracy of these records. Understanding the reasons for changes in land and sea levels is essential for the proper development of coastal regions. The results of this study provide guiding data for scientific, engineering, and policy solutions to coastal flooding. Determining the true causes of relative subsidence, and how to use geological and oceanological controls, will allow us to exist within our natural environment, rather than force nature to conform to our legal and temporary 'remedies.'
Submarine topography off the California coast: canyons and tectonic interpretation by Francis P Shepard( Book )
7 editions published between 1941 and 1977 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mediterranean coasts of Israel and Sinai : Holocene tectonism from geology, geophysics, and archaeology by David Neev( Book )
5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Morphology of the rocky members of the solar system by Elazar Uchupi( Book )
10 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 199 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
