By W. M. Telford

The content material of this e-book is past reproach - strong, exact strong technical details. that is why i purchased it. it is a bit past me as a geologist yet I will not outgrow its content material and that fits me fantastic. i used to be disillusioned by means of the book caliber notwithstanding. I knew it used to be a paperback, however it turns out a very flimsy paperboard, and for a e-book of this measurement and density, it rather wishes a hardback or a stiffer, more durable paperback conceal. it is a operating e-book which would turn out in a box camp, and for US$70, i'd get pleasure from a hardback. extra importantly, the textual content caliber is terrible, as are the photographs. I in comparison it to the unique (which our place of work has a duplicate of) and it kind of feels they've got scanned the unique booklet and digitally published it. The textual content has an tense blur, similar to photocopies, and the photographs (never the simplest within the unique) are furthur degraded and contrasty.
A for content material, C for attempt. B total.

Example text

Radium porewater profiles do not correlate well with either Sr or the expected geochemical analogue Ba. Such trends while inconsistent with other studies can perhaps be attributed to the presence of a non-barite host phase for Ra. 005 mg/L. The reductive dissolution of Ra-bearing barite or radiobarite, can result in the addition of substantial Ra to porewaters. In a uranium tailings impoundment in Canada, for example, the dissolution of radiobarite in reducing horizons resulted in elevated levels in porewaters of ca.

The lead traces measured are clearly negative, evidencing that a 50 cm cover layer of the sandy material used is insufficient to provide adequate radon attenuation. Plenary 20 Manfred Hagen , Alexander Thomas Jakubick Flooding of mines The mine flooding is done in a controlled way to prevent contamination of surface water bodies and of aquifers serving as water supply (Jakubick, Jenk, Kahnt, 2003). Mine water discharges are in order of 50 to >1000 m3/h, depending on the characteristics of the mine.
