9780126363807: Encyclopedia of Geology, Five Volume Set (Encyclopedia of Geology Series)
Review:

"Not since the institution of encyclopedias such as the late 19th century British editions of the Encyclopedia Britannica have so many experts (some 320) collaborated to produce such an extensive and authoritative collection of essays (some 340)on every aspect of geology from Africa to weathering." -Douglas Palmer, in GEOLOGICAL MAGAZINE "...the editors, editorial advisory board, contributors and reviewers are to be congratulated and thanked for producing an amazing, user-friendly and extremely useful compilation of the information that relates to contemporary geology." -GEOLOGY TODAY, VOL. 21, 2005 "...the high price is certainly not too high if many readers will have access to this work that, indeed, provides an excellent opportunity to learn 'a great deal about geology, both within and beyond [your] own specialities.' A must for geological libraries." -A.J. van Loon, in EARTH SCIENCE REVIEWS 2006 "This is a scholarly, erudite and well-organised summary of the current status of the Earth Sciences in all its manifold parts...It is an achievement that should be acclaimed, and an enterprise that should be supported." -PRECAMBRIAN RESEARCH, VOLUME 145, ISSUES 3-4 "The three editors deserve praise indeed. They have done a superb job. Apparently, they laid out strict ground rules, and then assured that they were followed assiduously." -Tomas Feininger, in THE CANADIAN MINERALOGIST "Directed chiefly at the undergraduate level in geology, it is furthermore a useful tool for graduate students in other fields. No college or university with a program in Earth Sciences should be without Encyclopedia of Geology in its library." -Tomas Feininger, in THE CANADIAN MINERALOGIST "Where the price may be fairly high for private acquisition, it is certainly not too high for libraries. Librarians will find out that, as soon as people know about the presence of this work in an institute, too (?) many earth scientists will frequently want to use it. Stuff to become addicted to." A.J. van Loon, JOURNAL OF SEDIMENTARY RESEARCH, 2005 "I have learnt a lot from reading selected subjects from these volumes, and often on subjects that I would not normally find myself reading. It is an achievement that should be acclaimed, and an enterprise that should be supported." B. Windley, PRECAMBRIAN RESEARCH, 2005 Over the past decade a number of print and online encylopedias have been published about the earth sciences. This title (currently in print but soon to be available online) focuses on geology rather than all the earth sciences. Recommended. All levels. C. Hebblethwaite, CHOICE, 2005 "The aim of this work is to provide an authoritative and comprehensive coverage of all aspects of geology, an objective that is most certainly achieved. ...this set is aimed at undergraduate and educated lay people - the audience as stated in the book are "academic libraries servicing earth and environmental science departments as well as industrial, government and public libraries, practising geologists, engineers and environmental scientists". I agree totally with this statement". H. Ashton, Reference Reviews, 2005 Over the past decade a number of print and online encylopedias have been published about the earth sciences. This title (currently in print but soon to be available online) focuses on geology rather than all the earth sciences. CHOICE, 2005 "This unrivaled, five-volume reference work covers all aspects of geology including earth history, earth materials, surface processes, regional geology, economic geology, engineering geology, petroleum geology, geochemical and mineral exploration, and the history of geology...The concepts and theory are explained at a level that allows undergraduates and educated laypeople to understand them. It will become the reference of choice for today's geologists and beyond." -FIRST BREAK, April 2005

From the Publisher:

This unrivalled, five-volume reference work covers all aspects of geology including earth history, earth materials, surface processes, regional geology, economic geology, engineering geology, petroleum geology, geochemical and mineral exploration, and the history of geology. The techniques of remote sensing and other tools of investigation that have advanced rapidly over the last few decades are described in detail. "Encyclopedia of Geology" is divided into 340 articles, each covering one aspect of geology. The concepts and theory are explained at a level that allows undergraduates and educated lay people to understand them. The reference has been planned and structured to provide the user with a comprehensive coverage of the core knowledge in each area. It will become the reference of choice for today's geologists and beyond. It is also available online via ScienceDirect featuring extensive browsing, searching, and internal cross-referencing between articles in the work, plus dynamic linking to journal articles and abstract databases, making navigation flexible and easy. It contains aver 2500 pages and is presented in full colour throughout. It covers both theory and applications of geology, and contains extensive cross-referencing. Further reading lists accompany each article.
