Recently, Richard J. Russell published an excellent report 13 on the geology of the Warner Range of California, which forms the western scarp of the southern continuation of the Warner Valley lying about 70 miles west of the southern spur of Pueblo Mountain. Russell was primarily interested in the structure and physiography of the region, but for the purpose of mapping, he divided the volcanic series into . Biology and Geology of Coral Reefs, Volume I: Geology 1 focuses on the evolution, reef types, geology, and structural and tectonic factors causing the development of coral reefs. The selection first offers information on the coral reefs of the Caribbean and Indian Ocean, including evolution, physical environment, coral diversity, reef.

The Geology of Australia provides a vivid and informative account of the evolution of the Australian continent over the last million years. Starting with the Precambrian rocks that hold clues to the origins of life and the development of an oxygenated atmosphere, it goes on to cover the warm seas, volcanism and episodes of mountain building, which formed the eastern third of the Australian.

Although barrier islands comprise only 15% of the world's coastline, they have received a far greater proportion of attention from the scientific and engineering community, and more recently, from coastal managers and environmentalists. Modern barrier islands are arguably the most expensive and most vulnerable of all coastal environments.
