Marine geology — A planet earth perspective
Development of Marine Geophysical Techniques A good feature of the book is the quite extensive glossary an excellent idea for the intended readership of beginning geology students. Words that are defined in the glossary are highlighted in bold type at their first appearance. H o w e v e r , again the effect was spoiled by some careless omissions: 'strike' is included, but not 'dip'.
Also, bold type is occasionally used for emphasis rather than as a pointer to the glossary, which can be confusing. A n o t h e r good feature is a list of suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter. These offer the reader a wide range of choice, from 'popular' science articles to research papers and monographs.
The figures are mainly drawn from research papers, which adds to the immediacy of the book and emphasis the feeling that the reader is being shown science 'as it is done'. Many of these figures are very clearly reproduced, but again there are some glaring exceptions. Figure shows photographs of a sediment core and microfossils. It should be in half-tone, but has actually been reproduced in high contrast as pure black and white.
On the other hand, Figure another plate of microfossils is excellent. A centre section holds four pages of colour plates. Some of these radar-derived topography of Venus, S E A S A T gravity field of Earth, pictures of hydrothermal vents make the most of this visual opportunity; but there are also rather a lot of apparently old photographs of volcanic eruptions having very poor colour fidelity.
Having catalogued some of the book's weaknesses, I must return to a more positive note. I actually liked this book: 1 think it serves a definite need, and I should like to see it succeed.
An Introduction to Marine Geology
The book does not use mathematics, and there is a minimum of technical jargon; what there is is explained as the book goes along. I hope this book is successful and soon goes to a second edition; if it is then carefully revised to remove its present shortcomings, it could become a very good book indeed.Full Name Comment goes here.
The figures are mainly drawn from research papers, which adds to the immediacy of the book and emphasis the feeling that the reader is being shown science 'as it is done'. An enormous number of chemical and isotopic attributes have been used to deduce environments of deposition and sediment production with particular emphasis on climatic variables. Sediment grain size Studies of particle size shed light on many facets of deep-sea sediments including especially depositional conditions.
For suspended sediment, once the stress has decreased below the suspension threshold material will sink into the near-bed region thereby increasing the concentration and causing some material to be deposited. Well, there are certainly channels on Mars that were formed by running liquid, but 1 question whether they are the most visible features, and they are certainly not Percy Lowell's illusory 'canals' - - though a student with no background in planetary geology might be forgiven for thinking that is what was meant.
This follows from the outline given above of problems with intermediate waters, only more acutely. Applications of the sortable silt proxy: climate and flow 3. Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta, 70, —
