Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology Solutions Manual
This chapter should in fact be read by all advanced geology students to increase their understanding of how any sort of geologic mapping is or should be done. An interesting implication of this chapter is that fundamentally sound geologic maps of the Moon-at least the near sidecould have been done in the 19th century by applying stratigraphic principles to telescopic observations.
For completeness, this review should make it clear what Planetary Mapping is not. It is not an atlas and makes no pretence of presenting encyclopedic coverage of the solar system or even the Moon.
There is little on geophysical or geochemical mapping, a significant omission for the Moon. There are no color plates or fold-out maps, and readers must supply their own stereoscopes for the few stereopairs presented. Layout and typography are excellent, as we might expect from a publisher in business since A RATHER matter-of-fact title has been given to this extraordinarily interesting scientific text, simultaneously to varying degrees a history of solar system exploration, a history of solar system astronomy, and an account of the techniques by which the Moon, the solid planets, and dozens of satellites have been mapped since space flight began.
Edited by two experienced planetary mappers, the seven chapters are authored by those who have actually pioneered planetary cartography.
This book was written just in time, so to speak. Some 30 years have elapsed since modem lunar and planetary mapping began, and many of the pioneers, such as Arnold Mason, Bob Hackman, and one author of this book, Hal Masursky, have died or at best retired.
Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Trip
Delayed five more years, Planetary Mapping could have been written, but not by the first generation of space age mappers. The subject matter and organization are summarized by chapter headings: Three appendices cover map projections, printing processes, and digital planetary cartography. Each chapter concludes with an extensive bibliography, chiefly to the primary literature. The treatment level varies. The chapters on Geodetic Control M.
Davies and Topographic Mapping S. Wu and F. Doyle give the mathematical foundations of the respective subjects and require a solid grounding in, at the very least, trigonometry.

However, most of the book is non-mathematical and should be easy reading for anyone interested in science. The historical aspects of the subject are perhaps of broadest interest. Despite 30 years of experience in lunar research, for example, this reviewer had never seen W. Many of the small satellites and asteroids are potato-shaped-lumpy potatoes at that-presenting Trace Elements in Coal by Dalway J.
THE CHEMICAL composition of coal is related to the behavior of numerous elements which directly or indirectly participate in the life process of plants or in the decay of their remains. Decay reduces the original mass of the plants to only a few percent of the former material and changes the properties of the surrounding environment.
In V. Goldschmidt initiated systematic investigations of trace elements in coal and coal ashes after he detected unusual accumulations of Ge in hard coal. He already suggested a commercial exploitation of this element from coal ashes. Lowman Jr.
Swaine joined the Australian research institution of coal technology thirty years ago as a soil chemist. His experience is mainly based on trace element investigations predominantly of Australian coals which he compared with results from worldwide sampling. Many readers will be interested in the mode of occurrence of trace elements in coal beds and their origin.
