Dover offers books on seismology, geomorphology, and even the physics of sand. We publish Fluvial Processes in Geomorphology by Luna B. Leopold, a pioneering work in the study of landform development related to running water; Seismic Waves and Sources by Ari Ben-Menahem; and The Physics of Blown Sand and Desert Dunes, a textbook by R. A. Bagnold that was used by NASA in studying sand dunes on Mars. We also feature ageless classics such as De Re Metallica, the 1556 work on mining, considered one of the most important scientific classics of all time and translated by Herbert Hoover; De Natura Fossilium, the 1546 textbook of Minerology by Georgius Agricola; and other 16th-century treatises.
