About The Product

Published via the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph Series.

The thought of "accreted terranes," that continents develop via the addition of displaced fragments of crust, used to be the vital subject of a up to date multidisciplinary symposium backed via the overseas Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG). This quantity includes a choice of papers provided in Symposium 12 at XIX normal meeting of the IUGG, held August 15-18, 1987, in Vancouver. Convenors Edward Irving and David Stone targeted this system on significant issues. the 1st used to be to trace the displacement of terranes utilizing paleomagnetism, geologic mapping, and paleontology. the second one subject used to be to discover the deep constitution of accreted terranes utilizing seismological, geochemical, and potential-field equipment. Given the scope of these subject matters, it really is no shock that the individuals represented many specialties in the box of solid-earth geophysics. this system integrated case histories from a set of fold belts spanning a lot time and lengthy distances, from the Proterozoic sutures of North the United States to the Cenozoic accretionary complexes of the Pacific rim.
