Investigation, Remediation and Protection of Land ResourcesInvestigation, Remediation and Protection of Land Resources
by Dieter D. Genske

Land is a finite resource and is the basis for 90% of all human food, livestock feed, fibre, and fuel - and we are running out of it. Even worse, large amounts are degraded with only a third showing no signs of degradation, and a quarter being severely or very severely degraded. The economic im... more...
Logging the ChalkLogging the Chalk
by Rory N.  Mortimore

Chalk has proved to be one of the more difficult rocks to core-log as it breaks up readily during the drilling process leading to core-loss and destructuring, particularly where flints, nodular chalks and/or fractures are present. One of the greatest difficulties is the identification of chalk en... more...
