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.
