Applied earth scienceMineral sands

Applied earth science vol.125 no.3 Pages 105-188 (2016)
Athens login required.

This special issue is devoted to mineral sands deposits and the extraction of valuable heavy minerals (mainly ilmenite, rutile, leucoxene and zircon). The mineral sand deposits fall into three main deposit styles, palaeo-marine placers, aeolian (dunal) sands and alluvial deposits. Analogues from present day geomorphological processes are used to understand the processes and depositional environments for the concentration of heavy minerals and deposit formation.

Mineral processing and extractive metallurgyShechtman International Symposium (Sustainable Industrial Processing Summit 2014)

Mineral processing and extractive metallurgy vol.125 no.4 Pages 197-252 (2016)
Athens login required.

This special issue features papers from the Shechtman International Symposium in 2014. The symposium covered the science of quasi-crystals, and addressed the concepts of sustainability in contemporary research, development and industrial practice, with a view to mineral processing, extractive metallurgy and materials engineering. Papers in this special issue cover topics relating to the recycling or reclamation of key elements from substantial waste streams or end-of-life products.

Applied geochemistryEnvironmental and health roles of geogenic arsenic

Applied geochemistry vol.77 Pages 1-218 (February 2017)
Athens login required.

This volume is derived from the Sino-German Symposium on “Geogenic Arsenic in the Environment” held in Beijing on 22-26 September 2014. Papers were compiled in two parts comprising contributions from both symposium participants other scientists working in this field. Other papers from this symposium can be found in Applied geochemistry vol.63.

Gondwana researchTectonics and metallogeny of the orogenic collages in Central and East Asia

Gondwana research vol.43 Pages 1-228 (March 2017)
Athens login required.

This special issue contains 13 papers that contribute to a better understanding of the link between geodynamic processes and formation of the mineral deposits in the Paleo-Asian Tectono-metallogenic Domain in Central and East Asia.

International journal of coal geologyMercury emission and control from coal-derived flue gas

International journal of coal geology vol.170 Pages 1-84 (1 February 2017)
Athens login required.

This volume contains 12 papers derived from the 2015 International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant (ICMGP) held in Jeju, Korea. Topics covered include the distribution and occurrence of mercury in coal and its implication for mercury reduction and measurement, a new method for mercury emission monitoring, mercury co-capture by existing air pollution control devices and specialized equipment, and mercury capture using different kinds of sorbents.

TectonophysicsTectonics of oblique plate boundary systems

Tectonophysics vol.693 part B Pages 165-506 (14 December 2016)
Athens login required.

Twenty papers covering a wide range of topics related to oblique tectonics are presented in this special issue. They deal with numerical and analogue models, as well as field-based analyses of natural cases. There are also innovative approaches that exploit new analytical techniques (3D geophysical modelling, space geodesy-based kinematics, etc.) and methods combining structural geology with geophysics, petrology, geomorphology or stratigraphy. This special issue includes representative examples of many different tectonic settings around the world, covering tectonic events ranging from the Archean to the present.
