Synchrotron Radiation Earth, Environmental and Material Sciences Applications|
Editors Grant S. Henderson and Don R. Baker
This short-course volume presents what synchrotron radiation is, what the latest techniques are, what types of Earth, environmental and materials science problems can be investigated using synchrotron techniques, what the Canadian Light Source can do, how one gains access to the CLS and other sources, and how data are reduced and analyzed for specific techniques.
Most of the material is at a level of understanding for most upper undergraduate and graduate students although recent results and ideas presented will appeal to both pure and applied researchers working on Earth, environmental and material sciences.
