List price: $19.99
Author: Deborah Frazier
Brand: Deborah Frazier
COLORADO’S HOT SPRINGS is an entertaining, comprehensive guide to the state's sweet soaking sites and their histories. The photographs capture each spring's unique character and beauty. Each chapter blends descriptions of the warm water wonders with stories about the unique characters, events, and ancient use by Native Americans. The springs are Colorado's warm water ocean and Debbie visited each one, twice. One visit was announced and the other was an unannounced, anonymous visit to truth-test information and chat anonymously with visitors about their observations. This all new, up-to-date guide profiles forty-four hot springs, providing descriptions, contact information, directions, maps, photographs, and historical notes.

|Seismic Wave Propagation in Stratified Media
Lowest new price: $28.00
Lowest used price: $71.82
List price: $28.00
Author: Brian Kennet
Seismic Wave Propagation in Stratified Media presents a systematic treatment of the interaction of seismic waves with Earth structure. The theoretical development is physically based and is closely tied to the nature of the seismograms observed across a wide range of distance scales – from a few kilometres as in shallow reflection work for geophysical prospecting, to many thousands of kilometres for major earthquakes. A unified framework is presented for all classes of seismic phenomena, for both body waves and surface waves. Since its first publication in 1983 this book has been an important resource for understanding the way in which seismic waves can be understood in terms of reflection and transmission properties of Earth models, and how complete theoretical seismograms can be calculated. The methods allow the development of specific approximations that allow concentration on different seismic arrivals and hence provide a direct tie to seismic observations.
|Super Volcano: The Ticking Time Bomb Beneath Yellowstone National Park
Lowest new price: $7.40

Author: Greg Breining
Brand: Greg Breining
Despite growing evidence of geothermic activity under America's first and foremost national park, it took geologists a long time to realize that there was actually a volcano beneath Yellowstone. And then, why couldn't they find the caldera or crater? Because, as an aerial photograph finally revealed, the caldera is 45 miles wide, encompassing all of Yellowstone. What will happen, in human terms, when it erupts?
Greg Breining explores the shocking answer to this question and others in a scientific yet accessible look at the enormous natural disaster brewing beneath the surface of the United States. Yellowstone is one of the world's five "super volcanoes." When it erupts, much of the nation will be hit hard.
Though historically Yellowstone has erupted about every 600,000 years, it has not done so for 630,000, meaning it is 30,000 years overdue. Starting with a scenario of what will happen when Yellowstone blows, this fascinating study describes how volcanoes function and includes a timeline of famous volcanic eruptions throughout history.

|Geologic Fundamentals of Geothermal Energy (Energy and the Environment)
Lowest new price: $103.99
Lowest used price: $103.29
List price: $149.95
Author: David R. Boden
Geothermal energy stands out because it can be used as a baseload resource. This book, unlike others, examines the geology related to geothermal applications. Geology dictates (a) how geothermal resources can be found, (b) the nature of the geothermal resource (such as liquid- or vapor-dominated) and (c) how the resource might be developed ultimately (such as flash or binary geothermal plants). The compilation and distillation of geological elements of geothermal systems into a single reference fills a notable gap.
|Coding and Decoding: Seismic Data, Volume 1, Second Edition: The Concept of Multishooting (Computational Geophysics)
Lowest new price: $175.00
Lowest used price: $171.00
List price: $175.00
Author: Luc T. Ikelle
Coding and Decoding Seismic Data: The Concept of Multishooting, Volume One, Second Edition, offers a thorough investigation of modern techniques for collecting, simulating, and processing multishooting data. Currently, the acquisition of seismic surveys is performed as a sequential operation in which shots are computed separately, one after the other. The cost of performing various shots simultaneously is almost identical to that of one shot; thus, the benefits of using the multishooting approach for computing seismic surveys are enormous.
By using this approach, the longstanding problem of simulating a three-dimensional seismic survey can be reduced to a matter of weeks. Providing both theoretical and practical explanations of the multishooting approach, including case histories, this book is an essential resource for exploration geophysicists and practicing seismologists.
- Investigates how to collect, stimulate, and process multishooting data
- Addresses the improvements in seismic characterization and resolution that can be expected from multishooting data
- Provides information for the oil and gas exploration and production business that will influence day-to-day surveying techniques
- Covers robust decoding methods of undetermined mixtures, nonlinear decoding, the use of constraints in decoding processes, and nonlinear imaging of undecoded data
- Includes access to a companion site with answers to questions posed in the book
|Seismic Data Interpretation using Digital Image Processing
Lowest new price: $61.79
Lowest used price: $96.81
List price: $120.00
Author: Abdullatif A. Al-Shuhail
Bridging the gap between modern image processing practices by the scientific community at large and the world of geology and reflection seismology
This book covers the basics of seismic exploration, with a focus on image processing techniques as applied to seismic data. Discussions of theories, concepts, and algorithms are followed by synthetic and real data examples to provide the reader with a practical understanding of the image processing technique and to enable the reader to apply these techniques to seismic data.

- Includes ready-to-run MATLAB algorithms for most of the techniques presented.
The book includes essential research and teaching material for digital signal and image processing individuals interested in learning seismic data interpretation from the point of view of digital signal processing. It is an ideal resource for students, professors and working professionals who are interested in learning about the application of digital signal processing theory and algorithms to seismic data.
|The Measure of a Mountain: Beauty and Terror on Mount Rainier
Lowest new price: $6.18
Lowest used price: $1.25
List price: $16.95
Author: Bruce Barcott
Brand: Barcott, Bruce
In The Measure of a Mountain, Seattle writer Bruce Barcott sets out to know Rainier. His method is exploratory, meandering, personal. He begins by encircling it, first by car then on foot. He finds that the mountain is a complex of moss-bearded hemlocks and old-growth firs, high meadows that blossom according to a precise natural timeclock, sheets of crumbling pumice, fractured glaciers, and unsteady magma. Its snow fields bristle with bug life, and its marmots chew rocks to keep their teeth from overgrowing. Rainier rumbles with seismic twitches and jerks—some one-hundred-thirty earthquakes annually. The nightmare among geologists is the unstoppable wall of mud that will come rolling down its slopes when a hunk of mountain falls off, as it does every half century (and we’re fifty years overdue). Rainier is both an obsession and a temple that attracts its own passionate acolytes: scientists, priests, rangers, and mountain guides. Rainier is also a monument to death: every year someone manages just to disappear on its flanks; imperiled climbers and their rescuers perish on glaciers; a planeload of Marines remains lodged in ice since they crashed into the mountain in 1946. Referred to by locals as simply "the mountain," it is the single largest feature of the Pacific Northwest landscape—provided it isn’t hidden in clouds. Visible or not, though, it’s presence is undeniable.
Mount Rainier, North America's biggest volcano, looms over Seattle like an invitation to... adventure? Disaster? Discovery? It's all of the above for Bruce Barcott, a Seattle writer who captures the mountain from multiple angles in this luminous biography that defines Rainier's landscape to be like none other on the continent. By turns witty and introspective, Barcott's trip to the top of the glacier-clad peak is filled with history, scientific observation, and a divided personal attachment that struggles to make sense of the mountain and its effect on the surrounding land and people. The Measure of a Mountain is a literate, entertaining view of a totemic Northwest landmark.
