📒Plate Tectonics Volcanoes And Earthquakes ✍ John P. Rafferty
📝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 ✍ 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 ✍ 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 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 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 ✍ Darlene R. Stille
📝Plate Tectonics Book Synopsis : Explains what continental drift is and describes how it creates earthquakes and volcanoes.
📒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.
📒When Did Plate Tectonics Begin On Planet Earth ✍ Kent C. Condie
📝When Did Plate Tectonics Begin on Planet Earth Book Synopsis : "Inspired by a GSA Penrose Conference held in Lander, Wyoming, June 14-18, 2006, this volume discusses the beginning and evolution of plate tectonics on Earth, and gives readers an introduction to some of the uncertainties and controversies related to the evolution of the planet. In the first three sections of the book, which cover isotopic, geochemical, metamorphic, mineralization, and mantle geodynamic constraints, a variety of papers address the question of when "modern-style" plate tectonics began on planet Earth. The next set of papers focuses on the geodynamic or geophysical constraints for the beginning of plate tectonics. The volume's final section synthesizes a broad range of evidence, from planetary analogues and geodynamic modeling, to Earth's preserved geologic record. This work provides an excellent graduate level text summarizing the current state of knowledge and will be of interest to a wide range of earth and planetary scientists."--Publisher's website.
📒Plate Tectonics ✍ Alvin Silverstein
📝Plate Tectonics Book Synopsis : Discusses plate tectonics, the theory that the surface of the earth is always moving, and the connection of this phenomenon to earthquakes and volcanoes.
📒Seismology And Plate Tectonics ✍ David Gubbins
📝Seismology and Plate Tectonics Book Synopsis : This introduction to seismological theory and the principles of plate tectonics also develops a practical approach to the interpretation of seismograms for physicists and mathematicians as well as geologists.
