Geoscience in Practice

Series Editor: Professor Angela L. Coe, The Open University

Scope statement

New for 2021, Geoscience in Practice is a series of books covering the use and application of geological techniques relevant to a subdiscipline. The series aims to present balanced, practical expertise and critical hands-on information from experienced contributors in a way that is clear, straightforward and relevant for a broad audience, including undergraduates, trainee geoscientists, professionals, practitioners, and others. Techniques covered may be field, laboratory, office-based or any combination. A theoretical knowledge in the subdiscipline will be assumed to allow the volumes to solely concentrate on how to apply the techniques in practice, with key text augmented by flow charts, top tips and worked examples from industry and academia. Books in the series will follow a specifically designed, accessible layout and include full colour illustrations.

Geoscience in Practice is a unique series, distinct from the Geological Society’s other books series.

The Geological Society is actively commissioning new volumes for the series and will consider proposals from all branches of the geosciences. We are particularly keen to hear from experts in specialist groups, practitioners with a wealth of experience in a particular field, trainers from industry and academia or those working in an emerging field of geoscience. Authors with ideas for individual chapters (but not an entire volume) are also encouraged to get in touch.
