Continental Rifts: Evolution, Structure, Tectonics by K. H. Olsen

By K. H. Olsen

This multi-author booklet has been ready through a global team of geoscientists which were lively in rift learn because the past due Nineteen Sixties. In 1984, an off-the-cuff, grass-roots learn team used to be initiated to check person learn effects and to discover in larger intensity the obvious adjustments and similarities within the interpretations from quite a few rift platforms. the crowd grew to become referred to as the CREST operating crew, an acronym of Continental Rifts: Evolution, constitution and Tectonics, which now not strangely grew to become the name of this book.

Continental Rifts: Evolution, constitution, Tectonics offers an outline of the current nation of figuring out and data of the strategies of continental rifting from a multidisciplinary, lithospheric scale point of view. The chapters were based on every one rift method in nearly a similar synoptic series, with a view to facilitate comparisons of rifts by way of the reader. The e-book enhances its predecessors by means of featuring a extra unified photograph. It succeeds in proposing the prestige of a consultant majority of the continental rift structures which were on the leading edge of modern learn. for college kids and skilled researchers alike, this e-book should be of important price in assessing the present country of data and in serving as a framework for destiny research.
