Item description for Volcaniclastic Rocks, from Magmas to Sediments by C Montenat...

Recent research has emphasised the important part played by tephra during the evolution of volcanoes and their subsequent emission. Huge amounts of volcaniclasts are released by explosive volcanoes with significant impact on diverse aspects such as population safety, hydrology and the filling of sedimentary basins. This volume examines the production, transport and deposition of volcaniclasts (tephra and epiclasts) as well as their economic geology, particular in terms of reservoir engineering, hydrothermalism and hydrothermal mineralisations, hazard and development.
Volcaniclastic Rocks, from Magmas to Sediments is an excellently written and beautifully illustrated textbook compiled by a multidisciplinary group of experts which will be of great value to postgraduates, researchers and working professionals in the earth sciences, especially in volcanology as well as economic, engineering and environmental geology.

Reviews - What do customers think about Volcaniclastic Rocks, from Magmas to Sediments?

It's ok....  Apr 18, 2008
When ordering, I was persuaded by a rather glowing review of the text. Hindsite, I should have kept looking. While providing a wealth of information on volcanic rocks, the book focuses too much on specific case studies (from related journals and professional papers), and lacks the abundance of concise photos and sketches that I would like to see in a well focused, descriptive publication. I find too much of the information 'general' and can compile similar information through periodical searches and other texts. I was hoping to find this a 'final work' that would answer most of my questions. Instead, I must keep looking... Lastly, it is amazingly annoying that such a well regarded book is so poorly edited; LOTS of grammatical and spelling mistakes, as though it was not thoroughly reviewed before publication. Overall, It provides a reasonable compendium on volcanics and plenty of information to the uninitiated. But for good, descriptive detail, I would suggest you keep looking.
