This book is the successor to A practical introduction to optical mineralogy, which was written in the early 1980s, and published by George Allen & Unwin in 1985. Our intention, once again, is to introduce the student of geology to the microscopic examination of minerals, by both transmitted and reflected light. These techniques should be mastered by students early in their careers, and this text has been proposed in the full awareness that it will be used as a laboratory handbook, serving as a quick reference to the properties of minerals. However, care has been taken to present a systematic explanation of the use of the microscope, as well as to include an extended explanation of the theoretical aspects of optical crystallography in transmitted light. The book is therefore intended as a serious text that introduces the study of minerals under the microscope to the intending honours student of geology, as well as providing information for the novice or interested layman.

This unique and practical book provides quick and easy access to data on the physical and chemical properties of all classes of materials. The second edition has been much expanded to include whole new families of materials while many of the existing families are broadened and refined with new material and up-to-date information. Particular emphasis is placed on the properties of common industrial materials in each class. Detailed appendices provide additional information, and careful indexing and a tabular format make the data quickly accessible. This book is an essential tool for any practitioner or academic working in materials or in engineering.

Archaeological Ceramic Materials is an introduction to the origin and the analysis of the most abundant material found in archaeologyceramics. In this volume, the authors explain the origin of the components of ceramic materials, the choice of these materials by potters as a function of use and physical properties, the effects of firing on ceramic materials, and the means used to analyze the ceramics in a post-use context.

Bodenschätze, die überwältigenden Naturschönheiten, die Vielfalt scheinbar intakter Kulturen, wirtschaftliche Vielfalt - das sind Stichwörter, die man gemeinhin mit den Anden verbindet. Erstmals seit Jahrzehnten wird eine Gesamtschau eines Erdraums versucht, der durch die längste Gebirgskette der Erde verbunden ist. In diesem Raum von außerordentlicher klimatischer, floristischer und geologischer Vielfalt hatten sich vor Ankunft der Spanier Hochkulturen entwickelt und bis heute ist der Andenraum durch die Diversität von ethnischen, demographischen, kulturellen und wirtschaftlichen Strukturen sowie die Disparität von sozioökonomischen Schichten gekennzeichnet. Die Andenländer stellen sich auf unterschiedlichen Wegen der Herausforderung, ihre natürlichen und kulturellen Potenziale besser zu nutzen und dennoch die ökologischen Grundlagen nicht zu gefährden, die wirtschaftlichen Disparitäten zu überwinden, und soziale Kohärenz herzustellen. Dieses mit faszinierenden Fotos und anschaulichen Grafiken reich bebilderte Buch liefert Grundlagen für ein besseres Verständnis dieses Naturraums mit seinen Problemen. Axel Borsdorf ist Ordinarius des Instituts für Geographie an der Universität Innsbruck und Leiter des Instituts für Interdisziplinare Gebirgsforschung der Österreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften. Er ist Autor oder Herausgeber zahlreicher Bücher zu verschiedenen Themen der Humangeographie, der Alpen und der Anden. Christoph Stadel ist Emeritus an der Universität Salzburg und Adjunct Professor des Institute for Natural Resources an der University of Manitoba, Kanada. Er ist der Verfasser zahlreicher Arbeiten zur vergleichenden Hochgebirgsgeographie und zur Geographie der Anden.

Techniques of performing applied mineralogy investigations, and applications and capabilities of recently developed instruments for measuring mineral properties are explored in this book intended for practicing applied mineralogists, students in mineralogy and metallurgy, and mineral processing engineers. The benefits of applied mineralogy are presented by using in-depth applied mineralogy studies on base metal ores, gold ores, porphyry copper ores, iron ores and industrial minerals as examples. The chapter on base metal ores includes a discussion on the effects of liberation, particle sizes and surfaces coatings of Pb, Cu, Fe, Ca and So4- on the recoveries of sphalerite, galena and chalcopyrite. The chapter on gold discusses various methods of determining the quantities of gold in different minerals, including 'invisible' gold in pyrite and arsenopyrite, so that a balance of the distribution of gold among the minerals can be calculated. This book also discusses the roles of pyrite, oxygen, moisture and bacterial (thiobacillus ferrooxidans) on reactions that produce acidic drainage from tailings piles, and summarizes currently used and proposed methods of remediation of acidic drainage.
