Coastal Tectonics (Geological Society Special Publication) by Iain S. Stewart, Claudio Vita-Finzi

By Iain S. Stewart, Claudio Vita-Finzi

Describes the appliance of high-resolution coastal files to constructing and checking out tectonic types. The case reports are at scales starting from worldwide to neighborhood and care for glacioisostasy, relative sea-level swap and seismic and aseismic crustal deformation at quite a few timescales. a global viewpoint featuring a bunch of box facts from contrasting elements of the area in addition to novel modelling and analytical ways. it's the in simple terms publication that considers the subject with such scope. Readership: Tectonic geologists, Quaternary scientists, execs desirous about seismic threat or coastal development/protection. additionally to be had: Extensional Tectonics: Faulting and Fault-Related procedures (Key matters in Earth Sciences) - ISBN 1862391157 Continental Tectonics - ISBN 1862390517 The Geological Society of LondonFounded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society on this planet, and one of many biggest publishers within the Earth sciences.The Society publishes a variety of top quality peer-reviewed titles for teachers and pros operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable foreign acceptance for the standard of its work.The many parts during which we put up in include:-Petroleum geology-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology-Volcanology, magmatic reports and geochemistry-Remote sensing-History of geology-Regional geology courses
