  • Physics of Coal and Mining Processes

    By Anatoly D. Alexeev

    Around the world, on average, four coal miners die for each million tons of coal recovered. Improving the safety of mining work while responding to the need for increased coal production, however, is impossible without further development of the physics of mining processes. A relatively new branch…

  • Microwave Propagation and Remote Sensing

    Atmospheric Influences with Models and Applications

    By Pranab Kumar Karmakar

    Because prevailing atmospheric/troposcopic conditions greatly influence radio wave propagation above 10 GHz, the unguided propagation of microwaves in the neutral atmosphere can directly impact many vital applications in science and engineering. These include transmission of intelligence, and radar…

  • Groundwater Geophysics in Hard Rock

    By Prabhat Chandra Chandra

    In hard rock terrain, shallow water wells generally have a poor to moderate yield. Sinking wells deeply to tap yielding fracture zones often backfires, because the borehole may miss the saturated fracture zones at depths. A wrong approach to groundwater exploration in hard rock has therefore often…
