Zircon (Reviews in Mineralogy and Geochemistry, vol. 53)

Zircon (Reviews in Mineralogy and Geochemistry, vol. 53)

In the two decades since “Orthosilicates” (Reviews in Mineralogy, Vol. 5), much has been learned about the internal textures, trace-element and isotope geochemistry (both radiogenic and stable) and chemical and mechanical stability of zircon. The application of this knowledge and the use of zircon in geologic studies have become widespread. Today, the study of zircon […]

Acoustic Sensing Techniques for the Shallow Water Environment

Acoustic Sensing Techniques for the Shallow Water Environment

This volume contains the collection of papers from the second workshop on Experimental Acoustic Inversion Techniques for Exploration of the Shallow Water Environment. The workshop theme followed the original concept of the first workshop, held in Carvoeiro, Portugal, in 1999, i.e., to focus on experiments and experimental techniques for acoustic sensing in the shallow ocean. […]

Early Palaeozoic Peri-Gondwana Terranes: New Insights from Tectonics and Biogeography

Early Palaeozoic Peri-Gondwana Terranes: New Insights from Tectonics and Biogeography

Following the late Neoproterozoic – early Cambrian breakup of the supercontinent Rodinia, Gondwana evolved as one of the principal continental masses on Earth, embracing most of South America, Africa, Australasia, Antarctica, much of western Europe and parts of Asia. Around its margins were various other terranes that had varying tectonic and biogeographical affinities with the […]

The Role of Women in the History of Geology

The Role of Women in the History of Geology

Where were the women in Geology? This book is a first as it unravels the diverse roles women have played in the history and development of geology as a science predominantly in the UK, Ireland and Australia, and selectively in Germany, Russia and US. The volume covers the period from the late eighteenth century to […]

The Boundaries of the West African Craton

The Boundaries of the West African Craton

The boundaries of rigid cratons can be affected by subsequent orogenic events, leading to ‘metacratonic’ characteristics not often properly recognized and still poorly understood. Major lithospheric thickening is absent and early events such as ophiolites are preserved; however, metacratonic boundaries are affected by major shear zones, abundant magmatism and mineralizations, and local high-pressure metamorphism. West […]

Deformation Mechanisms, Rheology and Tectonics: From Minerals to the Lithosphere

Deformation Mechanisms, Rheology and Tectonics: From Minerals to the Lithosphere

This book consists of 18 papers on deformation mechanisms, rheology and tectonics. The main approaches include experimental rock deformation, microstructural analysis, field structural studies, analogue and numerical modeling. New results on various topics are presented, ranging from brittle to ductile deformation and grain-scale to lithosphere-scale mechanisms. The volume contains review papers on several major current […]
