    Chemisches Rechnen und Stöchiometrie für Dummies

    Auch in der Chemie werden Sie Berechnungen und Formeln nicht immer vermeiden können: Sie müssen nur wissen, wie das schnell und elegant geht. Wie “das Rechnen in der Chemie” keine Zauberei ist, sondern auch für Sie einfach und verständlich sein kann, bringt Ihnen dieses Buch bei. [276 Pages, Softcover]

    Modern Physics, EMEA Edition

    One of the field’s most respected introductory texts, Modern Physics provides a deep exploration of fundamental theory and experimentation. Appropriate for second-year undergraduate science and engineering students, this esteemed text presents a comprehensive introduction to the concepts and methods that form the basis of modern physics, including examinations of relativity, quantum physics, statistical physics, nuclear physics, high energy physics, astrophysics, and cosmology. A balanced pedagogical approach examines major concepts first from a historical perspective, then through a modern lens using relevant experimental evidence and discussion of recent developments in the field. The emphasis on the interrelationship of principles and methods provides continuity, creating an accessible “storyline” for students to follow.

    Extensive pedagogical tools aid in comprehension, encouraging students to think critically and strengthen their ability to apply conceptual knowledge to practical applications. Numerous exercises and worked examples reinforce fundamental principles. [Softcover]

    Soils of the Past

    A student-friendly textbook that describes ancient soils, how they may be identified, and their use in paleoenvironmental reconstruction

    Ancient soils contain vital mineralogical, geochemical, textural, and paleontological information about the continental environments in which they formed. Advances in isotope geochemistry and sequence-stratigraphic models allow evermore detailed reconstructions of environmental change from paleosols, and new insights into such diverse topics as atmospheric chemistry, global change, paleoecology, geobiology and mass extinction. This book educates readers about the field of paleopedology and how it remains a key area of investigation for geologists and environmental scientists seeking to learn about, and reconstruct, the condition and evolution of paleoenvironments.

    Presented in three sections–Soils and Palesols; Factors in Soil Formation; and Fossil Record of Soils–Soils of the Past: An Introduction to Paleopedology describes the main types of ancient soil, procedures for identifying and studying them, their classification and, most significantly, a wide array of examples of how paleosols have been used for paleoenvironmental reconstruction. The book is an excellent reflection of the current state of knowledge and can be widely adopted over many disciplines.
    * All chapters have been revised and updated to reflect advances in soil science in the last two decades
    * New tables display a wealth of new data added since the 2nd edition published in 2001
    * New figures have been added and line art has been redrawn to improve clarity and promote understanding
    * References have been updated throughout

    Soils of the Past, 3rd Edition is written for advanced undergraduates studying paleopedology as part of a degree in geology, environmental science, or physical geography, and for interested professional earth scientists. [552 Pages, Softcover]
