Ellipsometry method for the study of nanoscale films of dielectrics, semiconductors and metals

Svitasheva S.N. Novosibirsk: Publishing House SB RAS, 2019., 268 p., ISBN 978-5-7692-1643-5

DOI: 10.15372/ELLIPSOMETRY2019SSN

The intensive development of optical ellipsometry is due to the fact that a change in the state of polarization of a light beam is very sensitive to the state of this surface. In the eyes of one generation of researchers, optical ellipsometry has evolved from laboratory exotics into one of the main control methods and has made a significant contribution to the development of digital technologies. The studies begun by Malyus (1808), Brewster (1815), Drude (1889), Rayleigh (1899) and Born (1926) played a significant role in the development of the classical theory of light. V.A. Kiesel, in his book Reflection of Light, writes: It is often said that the law of reflection of light is the oldest and simplest of all the laws of optics. If the first statement is not in doubt, then the simplicity of the law is only apparent; a more serious analysis of it reveals a number of complex issues that are still not fully resolved to this day. With the external simplicity of optical ellipsimetry methods, their competent and effective use requires very deep knowledge both in the field of optics and in the field of mathematics.
The book brought to the attention of the reader will be useful precisely to the loy of a young generation of researchers and developers who have yet to contribute to the development of optical ellipsometry.

Succession in grasslands

Titlyanova A.A. Novosibirsk: Publishing House SB RAS, 2016., 191 p., ISBN 978-5-7692-1479-0

The book describes in details five types of vegetation successions studied in grassland ecosystems: revegetation after flooding of riparian meadow and steppe plant communities by a reservoir, self-revegetation of coal mining spoils, changes due to grazing, post-fire regeneration of phytocoenoses, revegetation of abandoned agricultural lands. 
The study revealed main features and regularities of different succession types. Successions under constant and unregulated human influence were found to be basically unpredictable. The first stages of primary succession on coal mining spoils experienced drastic influence of fortuitous factors, the effect of the latter decreasing with time.
Plant community succession due to grazing was found to be reversible and predictable. Constant grazing pressure resulted in range digression, whereas changes in grazing pressure triggered succession in plant community. Pyrogenic succession was determined by the frequency and strength of fire. The burned steppe underwent all stages of secondary succession. Succession on the abandoned agricultural land was found to be regular, intrinsically driven and determined. 
The authors suggest a concept about ecosystem self-arrangement in course of succession, with the biotic turnover network providing the mechanism for it. 
The book is intended for ecologists, botanists, soil scientists, specialists in bioinformatics and mathematical simulations.

Epov M.I., Morozova G.M., and Antonov E.Yu. Novosibirsk: Publ. House SB RAS, Department "GEO", 2002., 102 p., ISBN 5-7692-0530-X

Theoretical and methodical background of the electromagnetic method of eddy current intended for defectoscopy of casing strings and estimation of strains in the vicinity of a borehole are considered. The solution has been proposed to a problem of transient electromagnetic field of a current loop in a conducting magnetic cylindrically layered medium. The problem is solved for idealized physicomathematical model such as a system of coaxial cylindrical films relevant to a multistring construction. The approximate solution is given to a problem for a 2D-model that is nonuniform in conductivity on the base of the Born approximation. Algorithms for log inversion have been constructed, and the accuracy of determination of casing string parameters has been estimated. Electromagnetic method to estimate strain variations in the near-borehole geological space has been validated physically. It has been shown that the values of natural strains in rocks are comparable with acting strains when investigating the magnetoelastic effect in ferromagnets. The sensitivity of transient signals to magnetic permeability of metal casing strings has been determined.
The book is intended for researchers dealing with the problems of distribution of electromagnetic fields in the earth, oil geophysicists, and log tool designers.

The tectonic structure and petroleum potential of the southeastern West Siberian Province are considered. Voluminous information on seismic exploration and deep drilling conducted in the last decades was generalized. Regional synthetic seismic profiles were first constructed and their seismostratigraphic interpretation was made. The structural maps were compiled and described for the major reflecting horizons in the Meso-Cenozoic sedimentary cover. Based on statistic analysis of morphometric information, proposals were formulated for refining the criteria for classification of tectonic structures as applied to the young platform areas. The scheme of the tectonic structure of the Jurassic structural stage was compiled and described in detail for the southeastern regions of the West Siberian geosyneclise. On the basis of statistic, paleotectonic, seismofacies, and dynamic approaches and using the apparatus of mathematical modeling of the wave fields, methodical techniques were developed for detecting and mapping the complexly structured oil- and gas-promising targets in the Jurassic reservoirs different in structure and genesis. The regularities of distribution of hydrocarbon accumulations and criteria for predicting the petroleum potential of some reservoirs were considered. Proposals for the trends in geologic exploration were elaborated.

This book is the sixth atlas of structures of volcanogenic and ultra basic rocks of various regions issued by the author. It describes more than 100 varieties of structures of ultra basic rocks dredged from different depths of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge in the areas of the Mercurius Fracture Zone, Doldrums Fracture Zone, Romanche Fracture Zone, and Chain Fracture Zone transform faults and alike faults of Cape Verde and Bouvet Island. Special chemical analyses were carried out for 50 % of the rocks.
The atlas is destined for petrologists involved in study of ophiolite complexes and related minerals in various folded areas. It may be useful for geologists performing surveys and prospecting work, researchers, as well as teachers and students of geological high schools and departments engaged in petrography.
Stratigraphy of oil and gas basins of Siberia. Paleozoic of Western Siberia.

Novosibirsk: Publ. House SB RAS, Department "GEO", 2001., 163 p., ISBN 5-7692-0462-1

This book embodies the results of investigations on Paleozoic stratigraphy of the West Siberian Lowland during the last half of the 20th century. Mesozoic-Cenozoic sedimentary cover and underlying folded Paleozoic rocks are considered to be first order structural element of the West Siberian (epi-Hercynian) Platform. Stratigraphic studies are reviewed, and the facial-zonal scheme is presented; it embraces 23 units. Significant corrections are made in the regional Paleozoic stratigraphic chart. More than 60 local stratigraphic units of formation and lower orders are described, including units that are, as yet, unnamed. A new stratigraphic scheme is proposed for the Cambrian of the left bank of the Yenisei River. It includes three new formations (Tyya, Averina and Antsyferovka). Cambrian volcanics, recently encountered in Vezdechodnaya-4 Well are designated the Lisitsa Formation. Global event levels are discriminated in the Devonian sections. The Paleozoic stratigraphic scheme for the West Siberian Lowland is aligned with schemes for adjacent Siberian Platform, Salair, Kuznetsk Basin and Altai regions. Palaeogeographic reconstructions are presented for two time-slices: the earlier half of the Cambrian for the eastern part of the West Siberian Lowland, and for the Ordovician for the entire region. Controversial topics on the Paleozoic stratigraphy of the West Siberia are discussed, as well as how these problems may be resolved.
This book was written as a reference source. It is intended for biostratigraphers, oil and gas workers, regional geologists, students and others interested in Paleozoic deposits of the West Siberian Lowland.

The monograph deals with the generalization of author long-term studies on influence of potassium balance intensity on the productivity of agrocenoses and content of potassium forms in soils. The indices have been determined and the gradations have been elaborated as concerning soil provision with potassium. The significance of the processes such as fixation and desorption of the element have been appreciated under question on soil potassium regime. There has been revealed the part of individual granulometric fractions in soil provision with exchangeable and non-exchangeable potassium. The monograph is intended for specialists in agrochemistry, soil science, agriculture, for teachers and students.
Specific features of soil erosion in Siberia.

Tanasienko A.A. Novosibirsk: Publishing House SB RAS, 2003., 176 p., ISBN 5-7692-0604-7

The monograph deals with specificity as concerns the development of erosion processes under conditions of sharply continental climate. There have been revealed the regularities of formation of thawing waters and soil erosion in different bioclimatic belts. Seasonal frost regime of eroded soils has been in detail outlined for the first time. There have been also revealed the influence of the depth of freezing of dark gray forest and chernozemic soils on amount and intensity of surface discharge of thawing waters and on quality of the removed soil material. Erosion sustainability of arable siberian chernozems is warranted for the first time based upon their genetic properties.
The book may be of interest to soils scientists, geographers, agronomists, specialists in nature protection.
