Global tectonics by P Kearey( Book )

90 editions published between 1989 and 2017 in English and held by 1,675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The third edition of this widely acclaimed textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to all prospects of global tectonics. Revisions to this new edition reflect the most significant recent advances in the field, providing a thorough, accessible, and up-to-date text. Combining a historical approach with process science, Global Tectonics provides a careful balance between geological and geophysical material in both continental and oceanic regimes." "New and expanded chapters in this third edition include Precambrian tectonics and the supercontinent cycle; mantle processes, including mantle plumes; the implications of plate tectonics for environmental change; large igneous provinces; rifted continental margins; ocean ridges; continental transforms; subduction zones; and numerous orogenic examples. Written in an engaging style, this important text is an essential reference for undergraduates and graduate students who have a basic introduction in the geosciences."
An introduction to geophysical exploration by P Kearey( Book )

26 editions published between 1984 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new edition of this classic text provides a general but comprehensive introduction to the most important methods and techniques of geophysical exploration. These methods represent a primary tool for investigation of the subsurface and are applicable to a very wide range of problems. An INTRODUCTION TO GEOPHYSICAL EXPLORATION incorporates many suggestions made by users of the second edition and covers all the major advances and developments in exploration geophysics. The text has been revised and updated with several chapters being completely rewritten and a new chapter on ground penetrating radar has been included
The Encyclopedia of the solid earth sciences by P Kearey( Book )

35 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Amethyst to Artesian Spring; from Zeolite to Zirconium, The Encyclopedia of the Solid Earth Sciences provides a comprehensive modern reference text for all the subdisciplines of the Earth sciences. The Encyclopedia is neither a short-entry dictionary nor a long-essay encyclopedia, but lies somewhere in between, with short entry definitions and longer articles reviewing the present state of knowledge across a huge range of topics and allowing any particular subject to be accessed to varying levels of detail; the longer entries provide general overviews of topics, and the short entries provide specific details on more specialized areas. Over 2700 head words are grouped into three main styles of entry: articles up to 1500 words on major topics, standard entries of up to a couple of hundred words, and brief definitions. However, the most important feature of the Encyclopedia which sets it apart from other similar books is the extent of cross referencing and the indexing: keywords are accompanied by synonyms; cross-reference to other particularly relevant keywords is made at the end of entries; keywords (for other entries) mentioned within entries appear in bold type; there are over 8000 index entries, including all keywords and more than 2750 other indexed entries; and index entries are shown in the text in italic type. The Encyclopedia is essential for professional Earth scientists, but will also be an important reference for students and those needing information on terms in current usage and state-of-the-art research
The new Penguin dictionary of geology by P Kearey( Book )

24 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This entirely new dictionary of current geological usage includes the latest terminology and gives over 7,500 wide-ranging and concise definitions. The entries are clearly presented and fully cross-referenced. Additionally, a full bibliography of up-to-date works on all aspects of geology is provided for readers requiring further information on particular topics. Authoritative and comprehensive, this New Penguin Dictionary of Geology will prove invaluable to researcher, student and amateur geologist
An introduction to geophysical exploration by P Kearey( Book )

58 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in English and Turkish and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new edition of the well-established Kearey and Brooks text is fully updated to reflect the important developments in geophysical methods since the production of the previous edition. The broad scope of previous editions is maintained, with even greater clarity of explanations from the revised text and extensively revised figures. Each of the major geophysical methods is treated systematically developing the theory behind the method and detailing the instrumentation, field data acquisition techniques, data processing and interpretation methods. The practical application of each method to such diverse exploration applications as petroleum, groundwater, engineering, environmental and forensic is shown by case histories. The mathematics required in order to understand the text is purposely kept to a minimum, so the book is suitable for courses taken in geophysics by all undergraduate students. It will also be of use to postgraduate students who might wish to include geophysics in their studies and to all professional geologists who wish to discover the breadth of the subject in connection with their own work
