The broad objectives of the research sponsored by the Office of Naval Research under contract N00014-85-K-0583 were to increase our understanding of the fundamental tectonic and petrological processes which determine the genesis and evolution of the oceanic lithosphere. In order to achieve these objectives, our research has been focused on the two main types of plate boundaries found in the ocean basins: (a) accretionary boundaries along mid-ocean ridges, and (b) transform boundaries. Both themes have been approached in

Plate tectonics caused a revolution in our understanding of the Earth. It has aided our understanding of why earthquakes and volcanoes are found in distinct locations, how oceans form and disappear, and how mountain ranges were built. In this volume, Peter Molnar explores the history and significance of plate tectonics.

How are mountains formed? Why are there old and young mountains? Why do the shapes of South America and Africa fit so well together? Why is the Pacific surrounded by a ring of volcanoes and earthquake prone areas while the edges of the Atlantic are relatively peaceful? Frisch and Meschede and Blakey answer all these questions and more through the presentation and explanation of the geo-dynamic processes upon which the theory of continental drift is based and which have lead

This text, which includes the same information as the market-leading Physical Geology 9th edition, is for the professor who wants to use the same valuable information and engaging format but in a different teaching sequence. Coverage of plate tectonics is moved to the beginning of the book. The text is also used as the official Annenberg CPB distributed telecourse for physical geology. The beautiful new art program and interactive writing style will grab students' attention and further their interest in
