About The Product

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

The idea of "accreted terranes," that continents develop by way of the addition of displaced fragments of crust, was once the relevant subject of a up to date multidisciplinary symposium subsidized via the foreign 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 subject matters. 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 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.
