Sand and sandstone by F. J Pettijohn( Book )

57 editions published between 1971 and 1987 in 3 languages and held by 1,485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the outgrowth of a week-long conference on sandstone organized by the authors, first held at Banff, Alberta, in 1964 under the auspices of the Alberta Association of Petroleum Geologists and the University of Alberta, and again, in 1965, at Bloomington, Indiana, under the sponsorship of the Indiana Geological Survey and the Department of Geology, Indiana University. A 2- page syllabus was prepared for the second conference and published by the Indiana Geological Survey. Continuing interest in and demand for the syllabus prompted us to update and expand its contents. The result is this book. We hope this work will be useful as a text or supplementary text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in sedimentation, sedimentary petrology, or general petrology and perhaps will be helpful to the teachers of such courses. Though we have focussed on sandstones we have necessarily included much of interest to students of all sediments. We hope also that it will be a useful reference work for the professional geologist, especially those concerned with petroleum, ground-water, and economic geology either in industry or government. Because the subject is so closely tied to surface processes it may also be of interest to geo­ morphologists and engineers who deal with beaches and rivers where sand is in transit

The Cold War & the university : toward an intellectual history of the postwar years by Noam Chomsky( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The years following 1945 witnessed a massive change in American intellectual thought and in the life of American universities. The vast effort to mobilize intellectual talent during the war established new links between the government and the academy. After the war, many of those who had worked with the military or the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) took jobs in the burgeoning postwar structure of university-based military research and the intelligence agencies, bringing infusions of government money into many fields. Little has been written about the long-term impact of this close association, despite considerable study of the McCarthy period's destructive impact on academic careers. The Cold War and the University is a groundbreaking collection of newly commissioned essays that takes a bold first step toward the reconstruction of this history. In it, some of the country's most prominent intellectuals use their own experiences to explore what happened to the university in the postwar years and why. In wide-ranging and revealing essays, these writers show the many ways existing disciplines, such as anthropology, were affected by the Cold War ethos; they discuss the rise of new fields, such as area studies; and they explore the changing nature of dissent and academic freedom during and since the Cold War

Dieses bewährte Lehrbuch erläutert die grundlegenden Prozesse durch leicht verständliche Texte. Bestechende Fotos führen die Studenten gleichsam an den Ort des Geschehens. Didaktisch hervorragende Zeichnungen verdeutlichen die geologischen Vorgänge in Gegenwart und Vergangenheit. Vulkanismus an Plattengrenzen, Sedimentation in Flussdeltas oder Dünenbildung in Sandwüsten sind damit nur einige Beispiele der vielfältigen Vorgänge, die unsere Erde gestaltet haben und noch immer gestalten. In vielen Fällen können wir sie auch unmittelbar beobachten und mit diesem Lehrbuch verstehen. Auf diese Weise wird der geologische Prüfungsstoff in diesem Lehrbuch zu einer weltweiten Exkursion. Die Neuauflage wurde an vielen Stellen ergänzt und aktualisiert. Dies gilt vor allem für die Kapitel Geobiologie, Klimasystem sowie Mensch und Umwelt, die wegen ihrer Bedeutung für den zu erwartenden Klimawandel wesentlich erweitert wurden. Die Visualisierung von Sachverhalten ist noch erheblich verbessert worden. Ein umfangreiches Glossar mit deutschen und englischen Begriffen ergänzt dieses bewährte Lehrbuch.--Backcover
