Download An Introduction to Saline Lakes on the Qinghai—Tibet Plateau by Zheng Mianping PDF

By Zheng Mianping

Since 1956 the writer has been making vast and precise investigations of saline lakes at the Qinghai-Tibet plateau. at the foundation of huge quantities of trustworthy first-hand facts and multidisciplinary research, the ebook bargains with the temporal-spatial evolution of the plateau saline lakes and the customers for inorganic salts and natural assets and their exploitation and defense, in addition to the relationships among saline lakes and international alterations.
This publication is the 1st English monograph on saline lakes at the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau - the `Roof of the World'. in comparison with books approximately saline lakes in different components of the realm, this monograph is written in a multidisciplinary, complete and systematic means. it can be utilized by graduate scholars, lecturers, researchers, box geologists and engineers as a reference booklet in study, educating, etc.

Introduction to Virology

The learn of viruses, or virology because it is now referred to as, had its starting place in 1892 while a Russian botanist, Iwanawsky, confirmed that sap from a tobacco plant with an infectious affliction was once nonetheless hugely infectious after passage via a filter out able to preserving bacterial cells. From such humble beginnings the research of those 'filter-passing agents', or viruses, has built right into a separate technology which competitors, if it doesn't excel, in value the complete of bacteriology.

This has been coupled with a comprehensive survey and statistical analysis of the commercial resources of 94 saline lakes over the whole plateau region.

Genetically they can be grouped into 8 different types: 1) glacial lakes, 2) silted-river valley lakes (including barrier and oxbow lakes derived from rivers and debris flows), 3) interbank lakes, 4) dissolved-salt lakes,S) meterorite crater lakes, 6) hot-water lakes, 7) volcanic lakes, 8) tectonic lakes. The first five types of lakes are largely formed by external processes, whereas the final three types are essentially generated by internal processes. 6). , 1983). There are relatively few saline lake basins that formed as the result of exogenic factors, such as the actions of glaciers and rivers.

The final period of salt deposition was marked by substantial precipitation of carnalite and sylvite, and the contents of the economically important elements, K, Mg, Band Li, showed a large increase in the brine relative to previous periods. This is mainly related to long-continused chemical differentiation of the Late Cenozoic evaporite basins led to later concentration of more soluble salts. Besides, concentration of Band Li was also very likely to be related to Late Cenozoic hydrothermal-tectonic events in the region.
