About The Product

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

The idea of "accreted terranes," that continents develop by means of the addition of displaced fragments of crust, used to be the significant subject of a up to date multidisciplinary symposium subsidized via the overseas Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG). This quantity encompasses a number of papers offered in Symposium 12 at XIX normal meeting of the IUGG, held August 15-18, 1987, in Vancouver. Convenors Edward Irving and David Stone centred this system on significant topics. the 1st used to be to trace the displacement of terranes utilizing paleomagnetism, geologic mapping, and paleontology. the second one subject was once to discover the deep constitution of accreted terranes utilizing seismological, geochemical, and potential-field tools. Given the scope of these subject matters, it really is no shock that the contributors represented many specialties in the box of solid-earth geophysics. this system incorporated 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.
