New earth science journals from Taylor Francis.

Taylor & Francis (Philadelphia, PA) has added three titles in the earth sciences field to its STM (Scanning Tunneling Microscope) A microscope that can image down to the atomic level. An STM uses a piezoelectric tube with a tiny sharp tip at the end that is moved within nanometers of the object being sampled.  portfolio. T&F has begun the publication of "Geomechanics and Geoengineering" and will launch "GeoRisk" with an issue in March. Also, the company will assume responsibility for the publication of "Journal of Earthquake Engineering" beginning in January.

"Geomechanics and Geoengineering" is designed to be a channel for research in the areas of soil and rock mechanics Rock mechanics is the theoretical and applied science of the mechanical behaviour of rock and rock masses; it is that branch of mechanics concerned with the response of rock and rock masses to the force fields of their physical environment. , geotechnical and geological engineering Geological engineering is the engineering science of applying engineering principles to the study of geological materials as part of the engineering design of facilities including roads, tunnels, and mines especially as related to minerals and mineral products. , engineering geology engineering geology
 or geological engineering

Scientific discipline concerned with the application of geologic knowledge to engineering problems such as reservoir design and location, determination of slope stability for construction purposes, and
, environmental engineering and related science disciplines. A forum for the exchange of ideas, especially between researchers in Asia and the rest of the world, it carries information on material behavior, analysis procedures, design and construction. It will be published quarterly and an annual subscription costs $106 for individuals and $318 for institutions.

To be hunched in March, "Georisk" will cover a range of research and practice areas including geohazards (earthquakes, rock falls Rock Falls, city (1990 pop. 9,654), Whiteside co., NW Ill., on the Rock River opposite Sterling; inc. 1867. It is an industrial center in a farm region with corn, soybeans, cattle, and hogs. Electronic equipment, feeds, and plastics are manufactured. , tsunamis, etc.), safety of engineered systems (dams, buildings, offshore structures, etc.), environmental risk, seismic risk, design and code calibration, geostatistics, structural reliability, hazard mapping, loss assessment and remote sensing. An annual subscription costs $75 for individuals and $295 for institutions.
