The gathering of papers during this quantity documents the advance of hydrogeology in Britain during the last two hundred years. Following the appliance, by means of William Smith, of stratigraphic ideas to the sinking of wells, Victorian engineers and scientists confirmed groundwater as an important contributor to public water offers. within the 20th century, the advance of groundwater endured speedily, managed via an ever-changing regulatory regime. The 25 papers during this quantity evaluation the growth which has been made, and the lives and paintings of a few of these who have been in detail concerned. additionally on hand: 4 Centuries of Geological trip: the quest for wisdom taking walks, Bicycle, Sledge and Camel - exact ebook no 287 - ISBN 186239234X Mine Water Hydrogeology and Geochemistry - ISBN 1862391130 The Geological Society of LondonFounded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society on the earth, and one of many greatest publishers within the Earth sciences.The Society publishes quite a lot of top quality peer-reviewed titles for teachers and execs operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable overseas recognition for the standard of its work.The many parts during which we post in include:-Petroleum geology-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology-Volcanology, magmatic reports and geochemistry-Remote sensing-History of geology-Regional geology courses

This quantity presents a cutting-edge record at the modelling of aqueous-solid resolution platforms by means of the mixed use of chemical thermodynamics and experimental and computational ideas. those platforms are ubiquitous in nature and consequently intrinsic to the knowledge and quantification of radionuclide containment and retardation strategies found in geological repositories of radioactive waste.

Non-market valuation has turn into a greatly authorised and commonly practiced technique of measuring the commercial values of our surroundings and average assets. during this ebook, the authors supply a advisor to the statistical and econometric practices that economists hire in estimating non-market values. The authors advance the econometric versions that underlie the fundamental tools: contingent valuation, shuttle price types, random application types and hedonic types.
The significance of the hedonic valuation process in public coverage review and environmental price estimation is now broadly authorised. this article is principally designed to demonstrate the fundamental assumptions of the hedonic process and spotlight the strengths and weaknesses linked to it. Combining rigorous theoretical research, distinct empirical experiences and an in depth background of hedonic valuation, the e-book is either an creation to the sector and an relief for execs and practitioners.

Medical science had no clear idea of the causative agent of the disease. The general belief was that the disease entered the victim's bloodstream and caused the diminution of the blood by expelling fluid into the intestines. If the body was trying to reduce the volume of blood, it was argued that the best course for the physician to follow was to encourage it. Thus bleeding, either by opening a vein or by the use of leeches, was considered one of the safest courses of medical action. One of the leading cholera 'experts' of the day was John George French.
