The course book Technical English for Geosciences is a real gold mine for all? most especially students and lecturers? who need to enhance their command of the English language with the terminology of geosciences. Subjects from all branches and disciplines of geosciences are discussed: Applied Geology, Geotechnology/Geoengineering, Mineralogy, Hydrology, Mining and Rehabilitation, Meteorology, and Water and Waste Management? subjects which are closely related to Bachelor's or Master's degree studies. Texts are taken from various authentic material including advertisement brochures, scientific monographs or internet sources. Terminology is practiced through multiple tasks and interesting exercises. The book is meant for learning in classes as well as for self-study. A glossary and proposals for solutions are provided at the end of the book. (Quelle: amazon.de)
