Readers who loved E.T., Free Willy, and Jurassic Park will dive right into this adventure story about what happens when an extra-average eleven-year-old boy gets an extra-large pet: a giant T. rex!   In the unremarkable town of Menominee Springs, Wisconsin, lives a twelve-year-old explorer named Martin, who one day stumbles across something remarkable.   It’s an egg. But not just any egg—a dinosaur egg. And a week later, Martin becomes the proud parent of . . . a Tyrannosaurus rex!   Can Martin save Rufus from his parents, his neighbors, and most importantly, the owner of the town carnival? With the help of his best friend, Audrey, and his science teacher, Mr. Ekhart, Martin must uncover his inner hero and find Rufus a home, even if it means losing the one thing he’s come to really care about.   “Readers will cheer for Martin and Rufus in this funny twist on a boy-and-his-dog story.” —Kirkus Reviews   “The premise of Fulk’s first children’s book has immediate appeal.” —Publishers Weekly"There's a lot of appeal in the “what if?” line of thinking that will attract young readers, and the adventurous and slightly dangerous elements that run concurrent to the friendship tale make this a surefire hit on multiple levels . . . This entertaining page-turner is a whole lot of fun, and it’s to inspire lots of conversations among young readers."--The Bulletin From the Trade Paperback edition.

This book deals with microbial mats, stromatolites and coated grains. Recent and ancient stromatolitic ecosystems are described in peritidal environments, including siliciclastic, carbonaceous and evaporite-dominated back-barrier systems. Various relevant categories were distinguished: - mat-forming microbiota - environmental conditions controlling mat types and lithology - bioturbation and grazing. Recent and ancient microbial mat systems show a latitudinal arrangement which can be used for paleoclimatological and paleogeographical reconstructions. This book should be of special interest to sedimentologists, coastal engineers, ecologists, zoologists, salt plant engineers and marine scientists, as well as to students interested in these fields.

This second edition of Terrigenous Clastic Depositional Systems bridges the gap between process-related outcrop studies of sedimentary rocks and the three-dimensional subsurface world of the mineral fuel geologist and hydrogeologist. It remains unique in its focus on the application of subsurface facies analysis to problems of petroleum, coal, uranium, and ground water resource discovery, delineation, and production. The text and figures have been rewritten and updated. New chapters summarize applications of sequence stratigraphy to facies analysis and the use of detailed facies interpretation in reservoir and aquifer characterization.

In the transfer of chemical species through the aquatic environment the association with fine sediment particles is often of crucial importance. The n~ture, permanence and kinetics of this association is, in many cases, unknown yet it is central to any effort concerned with predicting the pathways of pollutant transfer and the fluxes along them. It is often unclear to precisely what surface, if any, a pollutant is attached. The transfer of species between surfaces and solution may be chemically or biochemically controlled. These processes may take place within a host framework which has a time and space dependent structure. The natural straining of this framework resulting from physical and chemical processes moves porewater and the dissolved species in it. Thus, to adequately predict the natural transfer of species within a cohesive sediment system the physical, biochemical and chemical processes must be dynamically coupled. This informal colloquium examined topics relevant to the associ­ ation of pollutant and sediment. These included the mineral particle surfaces and the surrounding ionic associations, methods of describing the particles and the physical, chemical, biochemical and biological processes operating in association with fine sediment substrates. The physical processes of sediment transport were deliberately excluded.
