High-Latitude Bioerosion: The Kosterfjord Experiment

Bioerosion is the most important strength using the degradation of marine skeletal carbonates and limestone coasts. a large spectrum of mechanical and/or chemical dull, scraping or crushing organisms holiday down calcareous substrates, comprising a number of grazers, macroborers and particularly microborers. Their lines on and inside of not easy substrates are identified from fossil carbonates as outdated because the Precambrian and function useful palaeoenvironmental signs.

Cliff Ecology: Pattern and Process in Cliff Ecosystems

Cliffs are found in almost each nation in the world. the shortcoming of clinical curiosity in cliffs so far is in extraordinary distinction to the commonness of cliffs worldwide and to the allure cliffs have had for people all through historical past. Cliffs offer a different habitat, hardly ever investigated from an ecological standpoint.

Devonian Change: Case studies in Palaegeography and Palaeoecology - Special Publication no 314

The Devonian used to be a severe interval with appreciate to the diversification of early terrestrial ecosystems. The geotectonic surroundings used to be characterised by means of the swap from the post-Caledonian to the pre-Variscan scenario. plants on land advanced from tiny tracheophytes to bushes of substantial dimension together with a world bring up in terrestrial biomass, and vertebrates began to triumph over the land.

Canadian Foundation Engineering Manual

The Canadian starting place Engineering handbook covers basic issues universal to all features of starting place engineering, corresponding to notation, definitions of phrases and emblems and the category of soil and rock. It additionally covers methods utilized in subsurface exploration, a dialogue of bizarre web site stipulations, the actual challenge of engineering of earthquake resistant layout, and the foundations of restrict states layout as utilized to geotechnical engineering.

8m. The Trivoli Sandstone had an apparent conductivity in the range 3 X 10~8-4 X 10 ~8 m s ~l, but most of the sequence was too tight to accept water. 8m lower (at 21m) and directly in the Trivoli Sandstone. GT4 was stopped at 40 m at a high-angle fracture within limestone. 5 m. The only measurable water intakes in GT4 were in a deeper fractured shale-limestone interval and in the Trivoli Sandstone, which had an apparent conductivity in the range 1 X 10 -4 X 10~8 m s~J and erratic intake behaviour probably related to the filling of discrete fractures, another manifestation of the low porosity of the fractures and low permeability of the matrix.

It declined to about 34 m with the nearest approach (152 m) of Panel 3, then slightly recovered and then declined gradually as Panel 4 face approached. When the site was undermined the sandstone water level fell rapidly to about 43 m below ground, approximately the top of the lower bench aquifer. Potentiometric levels recovered very quickly to about 35 m during the compressive phase, then gradually to about 12 m below ground by 4 years after the end of mining (Fig. 7). The sandstone water level had thus demonstrated all the various responses of the conceptual model discussed earlier: transmitted drawdown due to adjacent and approaching mining; rapid decline in head due to increased fracture porosity during subsidence, with the aquifer becoming unconfined as a whole and threshold-unconfined for the lower bench; compressive partial recovery; and full long-term recharge recovery.
