Most widely held works by D. H Tarling
Continental drift : a study of the Earth's moving surface by D. H Tarling( Book )

73 editions published between 1971 and 1985 in 6 languages and held by 1,628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The historical atlas of the earth : a visual exploration of the earth's physical past by Roger Osborne( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Historical Atlas of the Earth is the first atlas ever published for the general reader that shows the history of the earth since its formation by revealing the past as an ever-changing succession of worlds. Where previous geological atlases have focused on rocks and fossils, this volume places the chronological development of the earth at the heart of its subject. Each spread deals with a particular period or event in the evolution of the planet, from the Big Bang to the evolution of humans and their effect on the planet. The Historical Atlas of the Earth is a fascinating journey through the history of our planet. Using maps and illustrations to reconstruct the changing geography of the earth, the atlas combines the latest scientific data with a nontechnical approach to this extraordinary story. It is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the past - and future - of the world we inhabit
Evolution of the earth's crust( Book )

Economic geology and geotectonics( Book )

Palaeomagnetism : principles and applications in geology, geophysics, and archaeology by D. H Tarling( Book )

14 editions published in 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Palaeomagnetism and archaeomagnetism are fascinating specialized studies because they are applicable to such a wide range of problems in geology, archaeology and geophysics. They can also be undertaken cheaply, when compared with most other geophysical techniques, and, at first sight, simply. In fact, real comprehension of the magnetic processes that have occurred in rocks and other types of material over several thousands or many millions of years is still extremely difficult to assess and measure. On this basis, this book cannot explain all such features, nor can it attempt to cover all the actual and potential applications of the method. All that can be attempted is to give an impression of the ways in which such techniques can be used in a wide variety of fields, and how these techniques are usually applied. The magnetization of rocks is, in fact, one of the earliest of the true sciences, but we are still not in a position to answer many of the problems posed. Consequently some of the examples given of applications are, essentially, state-of-the-art comments, rather than being a review as such. The changing position of the geomagnetic poles with time is still not adequately defined, for example, and some of the more recent conventional views are given, although the emphasis is placed on more subjective, probably more controversial, evaluations
Principles and applications of palaeomagnetism by D. H Tarling( Book )

10 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Palaeomagnetism and diag[e]nesis in sediments by D. H Tarling( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains a co-ordinated series of papers considering how chemical changes in sediments, as they accumulate and lithify, affect their magnetisation and how such changes can be monitored by studying their magnetic properties. It is especially relevant to sedimentologists, particularly those in exploration for hydrocarbons and sediment-hosted metals, as well as for geophysicists using the magnetisation of sediments
Palaeomagnetism and tectonics of the Mediterranean Region( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 33 papers in this volume span the full width of the Mediterranean basin and present results from Permian to Quaternary rocks. Together they provide a snap-shot of the current state of palaeomagnetic research in the Mediterranean region. In addition to tectonic and magnetostratigraphic applications of palaeomagnetism, several contributions describe archaeomagnetic studies in the Mediterranean realm
The magnetic anisotropy of rocks by D. H Tarling( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
