Rutley's elements of mineralogy has been around for a long time, certainly throughout my own lifetime; and if my great grandfather had read geology, it would have been prescribed reading for him too! It has been rewritten and revised frequently since fir~t conceived by Frank Rutley in the late 19th century. Major revisions occurred in 1902, and then in 1914, when H. H. Read first took over the authorship, and thereafter in 1936 and in 1965 when the last major changes occurred. It was with some trepidation that I agreed to attempt this revision. I had been asked to do it by Janet Watson in 1979, but various commitments delayed my start on it until 1984. This 27th edition encompasses a number of changes. Chapters 1-5 have the same headings as before, but considerable changes have been made in all of them, particularly 1, 3, 4 and 5. Comments sought prior to the revision revealed considerable disagreement about the role of blowpipe analyses in the book. I have only once had blowpipe analyses demon strated to me, and have never used them; but there is no doubt that they are employed in many countries, and many of the tests (flame colour, bead, etc. ) are still useful as rapid indicators of which element is present in a mineral. I have therefore kept blowpipe analysis information in Rutley, but have relegated it to an appendix.

The last thorough revision of Rutley's Elements of Mineralogy appeared as the 23rd Edition in 1936. In subsequent editions, an effort to keep abreast with the great progress in the science was made by small (and often awkward) modifications and, especially, by the addition of an independent chapter on the atomic structure of minerals. For this present edition, the complete re-setting of the book has made possible not only the integration of the added chapter on atomic structure into its proper place in the accounts of the chemical and physical properties of minerals, but also extensive rewriting and rearrangement of the material in the first part of the book. To this part, also, has been added a short chapter on the classification of minerals. In the second part, the Descrip tion of Minerals, numerous, if not so extensive, modifications and modernisations have been introduced. A couple of dozen new figures have been added, mostly in the early part of the book. More specifically, the major changes in this new edition are the following. The electronic structure of atoms supplies the guide lines for the whole account of mineral-chemistry; additional items concern the electrochemical series, of interest in the occurrence and metallurgical treatment of ores, and chemical analysis. On the physical side, the dependence of physical properties of minerals on their atomic structure is emphasized and, in addition, a brief account of radioactivity and isotopic age-determination is given.

Dieses bewährte Lehrbuch erläutert die grundlegenden Prozesse durch leicht verständliche Texte. Bestechende Fotos führen die Studenten gleichsam an den Ort des Geschehens. Didaktisch hervorragende Zeichnungen verdeutlichen die geologischen Vorgänge in Gegenwart und Vergangenheit. Vulkanismus an Plattengrenzen, Sedimentation in Flussdeltas oder Dünenbildung in Sandwüsten sind damit nur einige Beispiele der vielfältigen Vorgänge, die unsere Erde gestaltet haben und noch immer gestalten. In vielen Fällen können wir sie auch unmittelbar beobachten und mit diesem Lehrbuch verstehen. Auf diese Weise wird der geologische Prüfungsstoff in diesem Lehrbuch zu einer weltweiten Exkursion. Die Neuauflage wurde an vielen Stellen ergänzt und aktualisiert. Dies gilt vor allem für die Kapitel Geobiologie, Klimasystem sowie Mensch und Umwelt, die wegen ihrer Bedeutung für den zu erwartenden Klimawandel wesentlich erweitert wurden. Die Visualisierung von Sachverhalten ist noch erheblich verbessert worden. Ein umfangreiches Glossar mit deutschen und englischen Begriffen ergänzt dieses bewährte Lehrbuch.

Zauber der Mineralien und Gesteine

Genre: Science

Zauber der Mineralien und Gesteine ist ein Buch mit 135 großartigen Farbfotografien, die ein breites Spektrum umfassen. Dies reicht von Darstellungen ausgedehnter Gesteinsvorkommen in Europa, Amerika, Australien und Island bis hin zu Detailaufnahmen von wenigen Quadratmillimetern Größe. Fotografien von Kristallen, Edelsteinen und Fossilien wechseln ab mit Abbildungen feinster Strukturen und Muster aus dünnen, durchsichtigen Scheiben von Gesteinen und Mineralien. Der Fotograf Dirk Wiersma führt den Leser in verschiedene Räume mit überraschenden neuen Formen und Perspektiven, manchmal abstrakt, manchmal (pseudo)realistisch. Häufig ergeben sich Gemeinsamkeiten zwischen Objekten völlig unterschiedlicher Herkunft und Dimension. Der kurze begleitende Text ist allgemeinverständlich abgefasst und enthält alle notwendigen Hintergrundinformationen.
