Beschreibungen

This is not just the story of the origin, evolution, and production of diamonds, but a story about the evolution of the Earth’s geology in general.  Important to geologists, geophysicists, and engineers across multiple disciplines, written by an expert in the field and an expert on the Earth’s geological evolution, this volume represents the state-of-the-art in major Earth geological processes.  Of particular importance to mining engineers and petroleum engineers, it is also a practical guide for those who work in the mining or petroleum industry. Valuable as either a learning tool for the student or as a reference or refresher for the veteran scientist or engineer, the author explains important geological processes, such as the Earth’s origin, composition, and structure, the Earth’s energy balance, continental drift, tectonic activity, the evolution of the Earth’s crust, and others.  It is within this geological framework that the author offers practical guidance for engineers and scientists who work in industry or academia.  It is a must-have for any geologist, geophysicist, or engineer working in mining or petroleum engineering. 
N. O. Sorokhtin is a geologist and academician of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences and has participated in over 20 major geological expeditions and author of more than 100 scientific publications, including six monographs. He is a co-author of The Evolution of Earth's Climate, also available from Wiley-Scrivener.
A valuable resource for geologists, engineers, and students across multiple disciplines, this is the most comprehensive and in-depth study of the development of diamonds and the Earth's processes surrounding them and the possible applications for industry ever written. This is not just the story of the origin, evolution, and production of diamonds, but a story about the evolution of the Earth's geology in general. Important to geologists, geophysicists, and engineers across multiple disciplines, written by an expert in the field and an expert on the Earth's geological evolution, this volume represents the state-of-the-art in major Earth geological processes. Of particular importance to mining engineers and petroleum engineers, it is also a practical guide for those who work in the mining or petroleum industry.

It is within this geological framework that the author offers practical guidance for engineers and scientists who work in industry or academia. It is a must-have for any geologist, geophysicist, or engineer working in mining or petroleum engineering. The Origins of Natural Diamonds: Presents basic geological processes with detailed, scientific explanations, valuable to the student as a learning tool or the veteran engineer or geologist as a reference Explains the development, causes, and production of diamonds within the Earth Covers other by-products of the formation of diamonds that are useful to other industries, such as the energy industry Is the most comprehensive coverage of the subject written in book format Is written by a veteran and experienced geologist who is an expert in the field and in the Earth's geological evolution
