To celebrate Professor Emil Constantinescu's 60th birthday, this volume presents a selection of his major papers. The papers are grouped according to the main directions of Professor Constantinescu's work -- paying tribute to his wide-ranging interests and the impact he has made, and continues to make, on so many areas within the sphere of earth sciences.

Industry Reviews

"The Mineralogical Society of Great Britain and Ireland is pleased to endorse the publication of Mineralogy in the System of Earth Sciences, a book including many of the published works by Emil Constantinescu, and published now in his honour. This work in eight sections testifies to the immense breadth of interest of Constantinescu, with subjects ranging from new mineral occurrences to alpine mineralogy." B E Leake President, Mineralogical Society of Great Britain & Ireland
