Volcanoes : crucibles of change by Richard V Fisher( Book )
10 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 1,189 libraries worldwide
In this unique book, the authors chronicle not only the volcanoes' geologic behavior but also their profound effect on human life--drawing upon actual encounters with volcanoes, including firsthand accounts of those who have witnessed eruptions and miraculously survived the aftermath
The seven hills of Rome : a geological tour of the eternal city by Grant Heiken( Book )
23 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 664 libraries worldwide
"This book demonstrates the important link between the history of Rome and its geologic setting in a lively, fact-filled narrative sure to interest geology and history buffs and travelers alike. The authors point out that Rome possessed many geographic advantages over surrounding areas: proximity to a major river with access to the sea, plateaus for protection, nearby sources of building materials, and most significantly, clean drinking water from springs in the Apennines. Even the resiliency of Rome's architecture and the stability of life on its hills are underscored by the city's geologic framework."--Jacket

On the moon : the Apollo journals by Grant Heiken( Book )
21 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 201 libraries worldwide
"As we plan our return to the Moon - this time to stay - and as we consider the journey to Mars, it is vitally important to revisit the lessons of the past. This fast-moving and illustrated book does just that. It captures the excitement, spirit, and frustration of the Apollo crews as they explored this new frontier, carried out unique scientific experiments and became the first lunar field geologists."--Jacket

Stratigraphy of the Bandelier Tuff in the Pajarito Plateau : applications to waste management by Bruce M Crowe( Book )
1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 58 libraries worldwide
The Bandelier Tuff within the Pajarito Plateau consists of a lower sequence of air-fall and ash-flow deposits (Otowi Member) disconformably overlain by an upper sequence of air-fall and ash-flow deposits (Tshirege Member). The ash-flow sequence of the Tshirege Member consists of three cooling units throughout much of the Pajarito Plateau. The lower cooling unit is formed by three to as many as six pyroclastic flow units; the middle and upper cooling units each consist of at least three pyroclastic flow units. The contact between the lower and middle cooling unit coincides with a pyroclastic flow unit contact. This horizon is a prominent stratigraphic marker within distal sections of the Tshirege Member. Major and trace element analyses of unaltered and altered samples of the Bandelier Tuff were determined by neutron activation and delayed neutron activation and delayed neutron activation techniques. Petrographic, granulometric and morphologic characteristics of the Bandelier Tuff were determined to provide background information on the suitability of the Tuff as a medium for radioactive waste disposal. The hydrologic characteristics of the Bandelier Tuff are controlled primarily by secondary features of the Tuff (cooling zones). These features vary with emplacement temperature and transport distance of the Tuff. Primary depositional features provide second order control on transport pathways in distal sections of the Tuff
