A Geologic Time Scale 1989 by
Call Number: QE508.G3956 1990
Publication Date: 1990
This book is the planned successor to A Geologic Time Scale by W. B. Harland, A. V. Cox, P. G. Llewellyn, C. A. G. Pickton, A. G. Smith and R. Walters published in 1982. It adopts the same style and employs and develops similar methods, but it has been entirely reworked. The state of the art 1989 is thus presented; but the data assembled provide a source of reference which will serve for some years. The work develops and assesses a new calibration of the geologic time scale employing a new database. The new scale is summarized on the book covers and on a wall chart to be published separately. The work has been coordinated in detail throughout; nevertheless each chapter can stand on its own.
Dana's New Mineralogy by
Call Number: QE372.D23 1997
Following in the tradition of the "System of Mineralogy" introduced by Wiley in 1837, this one-of-a-kind reference brings mineralogy into the 21st century. It describes all of the over 3700 recognized mineral species. New features include emphasis on mineral structure, presenting descriptions of all the important species. New specially commissioned structure diagrams describe all the important mineral groups. All homologous species are classified and all polymorphic forms identified. Compact and convenient in one volume, it offers exceptional coverage on where minerals can be found and accurate, up-to-date references.
