Röntgen-Pulverdiffraktometrie: Rechnergestützte Auswertung, Phasenanalyse und Strukturbestimmung (German Edition)

Die Beugung von Röntgenstrahlen wird heute in vielen Labors zur schnellen, sicheren und zerstörungsfreien Identifikation von Festkörperproben benutzt. Der Einsatz von Kleinrechnern (PCs) und von schnelleren Detektoren hat in der Röntgenpulverdiffraktometrie zu einer Renaissance sowohl in der Phasenanalyse von Gemischen als auch in der Strukturverfeinerung aus Pulverdaten geführt.

How huge is the common version in focus of some of the parts in numerous media? How do the oft-cited "World standard concentrations" in numerous media examine with genuine analytical facts? How low a detection restrict do i have to reach if i need to examine for a component in soils, sediments, water or crops?

Isotopic Landscapes in Bioarchaeology

This paintings takes a serious examine the present notion of isotopic landscapes ("isoscapes") in bioarchaeology and its software in destiny learn. It particularly addresses the learn strength of cremated reveals, a a little bit ignored bioarchaeological substrate, ensuing essentially from the inherent osteological demanding situations and intricate mineralogy linked to it.

Such three-dimensional geometric compatibility is a basic condition of any consideration of crustal strain. One of the neglected aspects of sea floor spreading along slow-spreading ridges is the role of strike-slip and oblique-slip faults in the evolution of the median valley morphology and structure. These structures are so closely spaced along spreading centers (on the order of 10 km) that they are also likely to be important in the evolution of many ophiolite complexes. A Hierarchy of Faults at High Angles to Spreading Centers Strike-slip and oblique-slip faults that are parts of the extensional systems of the MAR occur at different scales.
