This volume presents a rich diversity of case studies that showcase applications of geomechanics to hydrocarbon exploration and field development, reservoir stimulation, contemporary tectonics and subsurface fluid flow. The papers provide a representative snapshot of the exciting state of geomechanics and establish it firmly as a flourishing subdiscipline of geology that merits broadest exposure across the academic and corporate geosciences.

Cataclysms: A New Geology for the Twenty-First Century

Cataclysms: A New Geology for the Twenty-First Century by Michael R. Rampino
English | August 22nd, 2017 | ASIN: B075FXJVYZ, ISBN: 0231177801 | 191 Pages | EPUB | 50.04 MB

In 1980, the science world was stunned when a maverick team of researchers proposed that a massive meteor strike had wiped the dinosaurs and other fauna from the Earth 66 million years ago. Scientists found evidence for this theory in a “crater of doom”on the Yucatan Peninsula that showed our planet has been the target in a galactic shooting gallery. Seeking to develop “neocatastrophism” even further, Michael R. Rampino adds to this exciting field in Cataclysms, building on the latest findings from leading geoscientists.

Finding Oil: The Nature of Petroleum Geology, 1859-1920 by Brian Frehner
English | December 1st, 2016 | ISBN: 0803290624, 0803234864 | 249 Pages | PDF | 16.59 MB

Because oil has made fortunes, caused wars, and shaped nations, no one questions the assertion that the quest for oil is a quest for power. The question we should ask, Finding Oil suggests, is rather what kind of power prospectors have wanted. This book revises oil’s early history by exploring the incredibly varied stories of the men who pitted themselves against nature to unleash the power of oil.

The female authors highlighted in this monograph represent a special breed of science writer, women who not only synthesized the science of their day (often drawing upon their own direct experience in the laboratory, field, classroom, and/or public lecture hall), but used their works to simultaneously educate, entertain, and, in many cases, evangelize.
