  5. Geomathematically Oriented Potential Theory

    By Willi Freeden, Christian Gerhards

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Pure and Applied Mathematics

    As the Earth`s surface deviates from its spherical shape by less than 0.4 percent of its radius and today’s satellite missions collect their gravitational and magnetic data on nearly spherical orbits, sphere-oriented mathematical methods and tools play important roles in studying the Earth’s...

  9. Physics of Coal and Mining Processes

    By Anatoly D. Alexeev

    Around the world, on average, four coal miners die for each million tons of coal recovered. Improving the safety of mining work while responding to the need for increased coal production, however, is impossible without further development of the physics of mining processes. A relatively new branch...

  10. Gravity and Magnetic Methods for Geological Studies

    Principles, Integrated Exploration and Plate Tectonics

    By Dinesh C. Mishra

    Gravity and magnetic methods can be directly related to physical properties of rocks, i.e. the density and the susceptibility, and are very useful to field geologists and geophysicists in the mapping and identification of various rock types. They are also used for the detection of minerals with...
