Sedimentology : recent developments and applied aspects( Book )

6 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In December 1982 the British Sedimentological Research Group celebrated its 21st anniversary at its annual meeting, held at the University of Liverpool. To mark the occasion twelve speakers were invited to review progress in various aspects of sedimentology. This book is the collection of those reviews. The four sections reflect some of the important developments of the previous two decades and include papers on: sediment transport; clastic and carbonate facies and the value of current facies models; volcaniclastic facies; history of the oceans; diagenetic fabrics and processes; and others
Collision tectonics( Book )

11 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the outcome of the William Smith Meeting of the Geological Society in April 1983. The aim of the meeting was to discuss the geometries, kinematics and mechanics of plate collision, in particular the distribution, sequence and timing of deformation, magmatic and metamorphic processes within a collision zone. It sought to clarify many new fields of investigation and to highlight some of the problems that remain to be solved
Petroleum and the continental shelf of north-west Europe by A. W Woodland( Book )

17 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Geological evolution of the Eastern Mediterranean( Book )

9 editions published between 1984 and 2007 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume includes 61 papers from a conference held in Edinburgh in September 1982 to consider all aspects of geology relevant to the tectonic evolution of the Eastern Mediterranean. The book is organised in 5 sections by age of events discussed and by area within this framework. The first is concerned with early Mesozoic events linked to ocean closure and so by implication deals with the fate of the Palaeozoic Tethys or Palaeotethys. Later sections deal with events following the birth and growth of wholly Mesozoic ocean basins of the Neotethys
Continental extensional tectonics( Book )

7 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume includes papers from a conference held in April 1985 at Durham University, which aimed to examine the geometry and mechanics of continental extension and their effects on basin development and plutonic and metamorphic processes. The importance of extensional tectonics in the Basin and Range region of the western USA is recognised and the results of recent studies in this area summarised. Other regions described range from the Aegean and Red Sea to SE Australia and Antarctica. Further papers emphasise the recent advances in our understanding of continental extension based on seismic data
Deformation of sediments and sedimentary rocks by M. E Jones( Book )

6 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recognition of the increasing interest in the deformation of sediments and sedimentary rocks shown by Earth scientists in recent years, a major international conference with this theme was held at University College London in April 1985. This volume includes papers from the conference that provide both a review of the present state of the art and pointers for future investigation. The articles have been grouped into three main divisions: experimental and theoretical, process orientated, and descriptive of particular areas or localities
The Nature of the lower continental crust( Book )

7 editions published between 1986 and 2007 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examination of lithologic and structural features and other aspects of the lower continental crust, such as ductility, chemistry and regional studies, form the subject of this volume. Papers include: Seismic reflections from the lower crust around Britain; The physical properties of layered rocks in deep continental crust; Continental lithosphere strength: the critical role of lower crustal deformation; The chemical composition of the Archaean crust; The structural evolution of the lower crust of orogenic belts, present and past; and many others
Alkaline igneous rocks( Book )

7 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers in this volume were presented at a symposium held in Edinburgh in September 1984, and review developments in the petrology and geochemistry of alkaline igneous rocks, with particular attention paid to work on lamprophyres and carbonatites. Reviews of work on some of the classic alkaline provinces, such as East Africa, southern Greenland and the Kola Peninsula, are included, together with reviews of less well-known areas. Other papers discuss the impact of isotopic, experimental, and geochemical studies on our understanding of the generation and evolution of alkaline magmas
Desert sediments : ancient and modern( Book )

11 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume includes papers from a Geological Society meeting held in May 1986, which attempted to match studies of aeolian dunes with those of riverine and chemical deposits. Seven papers deal with the fluvial domain and two with chemical deposits. Twelve champion the wind as an agent of erosion highhlighting its ability to redistribute material of grain sizes both smaller and larger than those which bank characteristically into dune forms
The Fossil record : a symposium with documentation, jointly sponsored by the Geological Society of London and the Palaeontological Association by W. B Harland( Book )

13 editions published between 1967 and 2007 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume arose from a symposium held in Swansea in December 1965, and includes papers on: Life in Pre-Cambrian and early Cambrian times; Life in Pre-Cambrian and early Cambrian times; Fluctuations in the evolution of Palaeozoic intertebrates; The origins of some Silurian enteletacean brachiopods; Changes in terrestrial vertebrate faunas during the Mesozoic; Major features of the evolution of echinoids; Biochemical evolution and the fossil record; Fossil birds and their adaptive radiation; and others
Marginal basin geology : volcanic and associated sedimentary and tectonic processes in modern and ancient marginal basins( Book )

5 editions published between 1984 and 2007 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume consists largely of papers presented at a meeting organised by the Volcanic Studies Group of the Geological Society at Keele University in September 1982 and includes a modified version of a field guide prepared for the pre-conference field discussion meeting. Although by no means exhaustive, the volume reflects the state of research into marginal basin geology and emphasises the need to integrate observations from modern and ancient basins. Its four sections are divided into: processes; the Western Pacific region; South America and Antarctica; and the Lower Palaeozoic
Gondwana and Tethys( Book )

6 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume represents the published proceedings of a joint meeting in May 1986 of the Geological Society and the Palaeontological Association. Papers include: Gravity glide and plate tectonics; Holocene serial folding in the Zagros; Gondwanaland and the evolution of the Indian Ocean; Origin and assembly of south-east Asian continental terranes; Lower Palaeozoic facies and faunas around Gondwana; Fossil plants as indicators of late Palaeozoic plate positions; Mesozoic Turkey as part of Europe; Phytogeography of the eastern end of Tethys; and many others
Alpine tectonics( Book )

12 editions published between 1989 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the result of a Conference on Alpine Tectonics held in London in May 1987. The first group of papers, Tectonic evolution of the external zones of the Alps, includes chapters on Helvetic structure and on the external zones of the Western Alps. The second section deals with the tectonic evolution of the Internal and southern zones of the Alps. The third is entitled Models of the development of the Alpine chain; there follow papers on thermo-tectonic evolution, a review of the palaeomagnetic and magnetic anisotropy results from the Alps, and a final paper 'Time and place in Alpine orogenesis'
Continental transpressional and transtensional tectonics by R. E Holdsworth( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many present-day and ancient continental deformation systems appear to have formed due to significantly oblique relative plate motions. Transpression and transtension zones are formed where the oblique motions involve components of compression and extensions, respectively. This book covers the recent advances in our understanding or transpressional and transtensional deformation zones both in theory and in real geological settings from around the world
Petroleum geology of Africa : new themes and developing technologies( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
