ScriptumSchiefergas und Flözgas: Potenziale und Risiken der Erkundung unkonventioneller Erdgasvorkommen in NRW aus geowissenschaftlicher Sicht

Scriptum vol.23 Pages 1-88 (2016)
No login required.

This volume discusses the possible economic role of the unconventionals in North Rhine-Westphalia based on a description of the differences between conventional and unconventional deposits of natural gas. The different types of shale gas and CBM deposits that are likely to exist in NRW, are described and an attempt is made at a rudimentary assessment of their potential, this includes techniques for exploration and extraction and environmental risks.

Report. Geological Survey of Western Australia 149Characterization and correlation of lower Permian strata, Canning Basin, Western Australia, and implications for CO2 sequestration

Report. Geological Survey of Western Australia vol.149 Pages 1-51 (2016)
No login required.

This report describes the sedimentology, well-log characteristics and stratal geometry of the Poole Sandstone and Noonkanbah Formation, which are used to interpret depositional history controlled by global climatic changes and tectonic activity.

Report. Geological Survey of Western Australia 157A geophysical investigation of the east Kimberley region, northern Western Australia

Report. Geological Survey of Western Australia vol.157 Pages 1-36 (2016)
No login required.

This report addresses gaps in knowledge regarding the regional scale structural controls on mineralization in the Kimberley region. The crustal architecture of the region was interpreted using magnetic and gravity data, in combination with petrophysical and geological data.

Environmental geochemistry and healthUrban soils and metal contamination

Environmental geochemistry and health vol.38 issue 4 Pages 939-1050 (August 2016)

This special issue is devoted to papers presented at the Urban Soils and Metal Contamination: Issues—Remedies Conference, March 30–April 1, 2015. Conference Themes included: Elevated levels of heavy metals in urban soils, soil cleanup after disasters, measuring risk of vulnerable populations, cost-effective soil remediation, barriers to clean-up, remediation guidance: decision-making process, determination of best practices and policy and reality.

Palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology, palaeoecologyThe Ordovician Revolution: co-evolution of climate and the biosphere

Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology vol.458 Pages 1-198 (15 September 2016)
Athens login required.

The 13 contributions in this volume cover many aspects of the major changes that characterize the Ordovician Period. They build on earlier organized research efforts, in particular those of International Geoscience Programme (IGCP) projects 410 (2000–2004), 503 (2005–2010), and 591 (2011–2016), which have yielded many advances in our understanding of the Ordovician Revolution.

Report. Geological Survey of Western Australia 160Northwest Pilbara Craton: a record of 450 million years in the growth of Archean continental crust

Report. Geological Survey of Western Australia vol.160 Pages 1-104 (2016)
No login required.

The northwest Pilbara Craton provides an exceptionally well-preserved record of Archean crustal evolution from c. 3280 to 2830 Ma. This report provides a description of the Northwest Pilbara Craton, Western Australia.
