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 […]

Mountains of Madness: A Scientist's Odyssey in Antarctica

Mountains of Madness: A Scientist's Odyssey in Antarctica

By John Long (geólogo!) Mountains of Madness is a moving tale of science, exploration, and human endurance. It is the story of how real science is practiced in a unique and demanding setting. Rather than a presentation of research findings, this book recounts what life is like in the field, where scientists come close to […]

Terrane Processes at the Margins of Gondwana

Terrane Processes at the Margins of Gondwana

The Australide orogen, the southern hemisphere Neoproterozoic to Mesozoic terrane accretionary orogen that forms the palaeo-Pacific margin of Gondwana, is one of the largest and longest-lived orogens on Earth. This book brings together a series of reviews and multidisciplinary research papers that comprehensively cover the Australides from the Tasman orogen of eastern Australia to the […]

Continentes y Supercontinentes. Continents and Supercontinents

Continentes y Supercontinentes. Continents and Supercontinents

To this day, there is a great amount of controversy about where, when and how the so-called supercontinents–Pangea, Godwana, Rodinia, and Columbia–were made and broken. Continents and Supercontinents frames that controversy by giving all the necessary background on how continental crust is formed, modified, and destroyed, and what forces move plates. It also discusses how […]

Antarctica Contributions to Global Earth Sciences

Antarctica Contributions to Global Earth Sciences

The almost completely ice covered Antarctic continent and the seasonally to permanently ice covered Southern Ocean surrounding it, have in no way lost their fascination and interest for geoscientists. With increasing scientific and public awareness for global change matters, the Antarctic region receives particular interest.Ongoing research on marine sediments, lake sediments and ice cores shed […]
