About this book

The new fifth edition of this essential glossary includes expanded coverage of carbonate sedimentology, environmental geology and geophysics, GIS, GPS, hydrology and hydraulics, marine and coastal geology, organic geochemistry, paleoecology, seismology, stratigraphic nomenclature, speleology and karst, and structural geology and tectonics.

From the reviews of the fifth edition: "Progress in the earth sciences goes so fast, however, that it can only be welcomed that a new, enlarged edition has been made available now. ! Considering the wealth of information in this giant volume, and considering the relatively rare omissions and imperfections, I think that the price is certainly not too high. I will personally frequently use it ! . Libraries that did not buy an earlier edition now have the chance to buy this impressive new edition ! ." (A. J. (Tom) van Loon, Journal of Sedimentary Research, April, 2006)
