📒Plate Tectonics ✍ Steve Tomecek
📝Plate Tectonics Book Synopsis : Examines the evolution of plate tectonic theory from its beginnings as a wild idea of drifting continents to its acceptance as the main concept that drives geology today.
📒Plate Tectonics Revised Edition ✍ Rebecca L. Johnson
📝Plate Tectonics Revised Edition Book Synopsis : For hundreds of years, people found the fossils of ancient sea creatures at the tops of tall mountains. Scientists puzzled over this problem. A fish couldn't have swum up a mountain. And how could rocks on a mountain move up from the bottom of a sea? Geologists finally found the answers they needed in the 1960s, when they developed the theory of plate tectonics. This theory revolutionized our understanding of the earth.Plate tectonics explains how volcanoes form, why earthquakes happen, and what goes on deep inside the earth to make the continents move. This book tells the story of scientists and their discoveries to explain how the theory of plate tectonics came to be.
📒Plate Tectonics ✍ Greg Young
📝Plate Tectonics Book Synopsis : Examines the Earth's surface, including how it changes and why it shifts, and describes several extreme events, including volcanic eruptions, geysers, and tsunamis.
📒Plate Tectonics Volcanoes And Earthquakes ✍ John P. Rafferty Associate Editor, Earth Sciences
📝Plate Tectonics Volcanoes and Earthquakes Book Synopsis : Presents an introduction to volcanoes and earthquakes, explaining how the movement of the Earth's interior plates cause their formation and describing the volcanoes which currently exist around the world as well as some of the famous earthquakes of the nineteenth through twenty-first cenuturies.
📒Plate Tectonics ✍ Darlene R. Stille
📝Plate Tectonics Book Synopsis : Explains what continental drift is and describes how it creates earthquakes and volcanoes.
📒Plate Tectonics Crustal Evolution ✍ Kent C. Condie
📝Plate Tectonics Crustal Evolution Book Synopsis : Plate Tectonics & Crustal Evolution, Second Edition covers the role of plate tectonics in the geologic past in light of existing geologic evidence, and examples of plate reconstructions. The book discusses the important physical and chemical properties of the crust and upper mantle in terms of models for crustal origin and evolution. The text also describes sea-floor spreading; magma associations; plate tectonics and continental drift. The phanerozoic orogenic systems and the precambrian crustal development are also tackled. The book will be invaluable to students in the earth sciences and to various specialists in the geological sciences.
📒Plate Tectonics And Disasters ✍ Tom Greve
📝Plate Tectonics and Disasters Book Synopsis : This book goes into great detail about the different layers of the Earth and how the shifting tectonic plates can cause natural disasters, such as earthquakes and tsunamis. In-depth information and stunning photographs reinforce the informative text.
📒Earthquakes ✍ Timothy Kusky
📝Earthquakes Book Synopsis : "Explores the furious impact of nature and the massive devastation that is often the result of the relentless forces built up within the Earth"--P.  of cover.
📒Alfred Wegener ✍ Greg Young
📝Alfred Wegener Book Synopsis : Explores the life and achievements of the meteorologist whose theory of continental displacement revolutionized the observations about the Earth's development.
📒Plate Tectonics ✍ Wolfgang Frisch
📝Plate Tectonics Book Synopsis : How are mountains formed? Why are there old and young mountains? Why do the shapes of South America and Africa fit so well together? Why is the Pacific surrounded by a ring of volcanoes and earthquake prone areas while the edges of the Atlantic are relatively peaceful? Frisch and Meschede and Blakey answer all these questions and more through the presentation and explanation of the geo-dynamic processes upon which the theory of continental drift is based and which have lead to the concept of plate tectonics.
