Continental drift by S. K Runcorn( Book )

29 editions published between 1962 and 1980 in 3 languages and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fifty years ago Alfred Wegener, the German meteorologist, published his theory of continental drift. The publication of Wegener's book gave rise to a vigorous controversy in the 1920s. Lack of a decisive test, however, and strong arguments against the theory on the part of geophysicists caused the idea of continental drift to be abandoned, at least by the majority of geologists in England and America. About ten years ago the development of studies of rock magnetism gave rise to new interest in this theory and has caused geophysicists in other fields to reconsider the ideas in relation to their own studies. It therefore seemed worthwhile to bring together within one volume a discussion of the geophysical evidence relating to horizontal movements in the earth's crust in its widest sense. This is not the time for a reappraisal of Wegener's work but it is hoped that this volume will stimulate a serious interest in a subject formerly considered by many earth scientists as already closed

Methods in Paleomagnetism covers the proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute on Paleomagnetic Methods, held in the Physics Department of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne on April 1-10, 1964. The book focuses on apparatus and techniques used in paleomagnetism and rock magnetism. The selection first offers information on sampling techniques in the field and measurement of natural remanent magnetization. Discussions focus on ballistic and spinner magnetometers; paleomagnetic sampling with a portable coring drill; portable apparatus for collecting small oriented cores; and portable f

The IAU Symposium No. 47 The Moon was held in the School of Physics of the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England, from 22 to 26 March 1971. The Meet ing was sponsored by Commission 17 and co-sponsored by URSI. The Symposium was supported financially by the IAU. The Scientific Organizing Committee included Prof. S.K. Runcorn, Chairman (University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne), Prof. H. Alfven (Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm), Prof. G. Colombo (University of Padova), Prof. A. Dollfus (Observatoire de Paris), Prof. T. Gold (Cornell University), Dr K. Koziel (Jagellonian University, Poland), Prof. G.P. Kuiper (University of Arizona), Dr B.J. Levin (U.S.S.R. Academy of Sciences), Dr A.A. Mikhailov (U.S.S.R. Academy of Sciences), Prof. A.E. Ringwood (Australian National Univer sity) and Prof. H.C.U rey (University of California). The Local Organizing Committee included Prof. S.K. Runcorn (Chairman), Dr G. Fielder, Prof. W.R. Hindmarsh, Prof. Z. Kopal and Prof. W.H. McCrea. This book includes the majority of papers presented at this the second IAU Sym posium on The Moon: comparison with the previous IAU Symposium on The Moon held in Leningrad, a decade earlier, makes clear the great advances made possible in our knowledge of the Moon and solar system by space technology.

Provides an excellent overview of the current state of knowledge of the geophysics of planets. The discussions cover several aspects of planetary composition, both surface and atmospheric, including planetary mechanics, circulation, origin, and modelling. Contributions include reviews of the literature and experimental results. The contributors to this book are all world-renowned experts who participated in the NATO Advanced Study Institute meeting from which the book takes its name

Flow and creep in the solar system : observations, modeling, and theory by David B Stone( Book )

14 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The conference which generated the papers presented in this volume was very broad in scope, covering motions, both fluid and solid state, ranging from the scale of the solar corona to flow in sedimentary basins. The aims of this conference proceedings volume is to allow a comparison of these various flow regimes to obtain a fuller understanding of the processes and concepts involved. Much information concerning large scale motions within the planets is obtained from proxy records such as variations in magnetic fields and tectonic activity on the surface of the earth. However, the directly observed motions of the atmosphere, the oceans and ice are instructive in attempting to interpret these other records. The papers in this volume cover these and other disciplines to allow the reader to maintain a good perspective on the fluid motions taking place within, on and around the earth
