Plate tectonics and crustal evolution by Kent C Condie( Book )

89 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 3,055 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive text has established itself over the past 20 years as the definitive work in its fields, presenting a thorough coverage of this key area of structural geology in a way which is ideally suited to advanced undergraduate and masters courses. The thorough coverage means that it is also useful to a wider readership as an up to date survey of plate tectonics. The fourth edition brings the text fully up to date, with coverage of the latest research in crustal evolution, supercontinents, mass extinctions. A new chapter covers the feedbacks of various Earth systems. In addition, a new appendix provides a valuable survey of current methodology
Earth as an evolving planetary system by Kent C Condie( )

63 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Earth as an Evolving Planetary System features new chapters on the core, biotic systems, and the supercontinent cycle and mantle plume events. Extensively revised, this edition contains expanded treatment of evolving Earth systems, crustal evolution, evolution of the mantle and mantle plumes, carbon cycle, oxygenation of the atmosphere, significance of sulfur isotope fractionation, and new information on mass extinctions and how catastrophic events over the last 4.6 billion years have transformed the atmosphere, oceans, and life on Earth."--Jacket
Archean greenstone belts by Kent C Condie( Book )

19 editions published between 1980 and 2012 in English and Russian and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a summary of data and interpretations related to the origin of Archean greenstone belts and associated granitic terranes. Although most of the published literature relates chiefly to greenstone belts, I treat both greenstone and granitic components of Archean low-grade terranes because the origin and tectonic setting of one component cannot be regarded as independent of the other. Results are presented from numerous fields including volcanology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, metamorphic petrology, structure, geophysics, and geochemistry. The approach is not chiefly a descriptive one, but represents a combination of interpretation and description. No attempt is made to review the details of stratigraphic nomenclature in specific areas nor to summarize other aspects of the geology which are chiefly of local interest. Examples of typical greenstone successions and representative geologic histories, however, are presented to illustrate similarities and differences and overall characteristics. Extensive references are given for those wishing more detailed information in given areas
Mantle plumes and their record in earth history by Kent C Condie( Book )

15 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Recent Years an enormous amount of data have been published related to mantle plumes, both modern and ancient. Some significant questions have arisen. Could the Earth have been more like Mars and Venus during the Archean? Instead of cooling principally by plate tectonics as it does today, did the Archean Earth cool chiefly by rising mantle plumes? How do we identify the effects of mantle plumes in the geologic record? Did plumes have a role in the growth of continents? Are large mantle plume events recorded in the geologic record, and, if so, what were the consequences of these events in terms of our atmosphere, oceans, and biosphere?" "Mantle Plumes and Their Record in Earth History provides a timely and comprehensive review of the origin and history of mantle plumes throughout geologic time. This book describes the new and exciting results of the last few years and integrates an immense amount of material from the fields of geology, geophysics, and geochemistry that bear on mantle plumes. Included are chapters on hotspots and mantle upwelling, large igneous provinces (including examples from Mars and Venus), mantle plume generation and melting in plumes, plumes as tracers of mantle processes, plumes and continental growth, Archean mantel plumes, superplumes, and mantle plume events in Earth history and their effect on the atmosphere, oceans, and life in the geologic past." "This book will be valuable as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in geophysics, geochemistry, and geology and will also serve as a reference for researchers in the Earth sciences from a variety of disciplines."--Jacket
Proterozoic crustal evolution by Kent C Condie( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a final product of the International Geological Correlation Program (IGCP) Project 217, this volume brings together significant advances in the understanding of Proterozoic crustal evolution. This IGCP Project focussed on nine research objectives: 1) Comparison of Archean and Proterozoic supracrustal assemblages to more fully understand differences between Archean and post-Archean tectonic regimes; 2) To more fully understand the geochemical differences between Archean and post-Archean sediments and to evaluate the various factors that control sediment composition; 3) From combined U/Pb zircon and whole-rock Sm/Nd studies, to see if the apparent 2.4-2.0 continental crust "generation gap" is real; 4) To employ new techniques in the dating of individual zircons to more fully understand Proterozoic tectonic history and the role of crustal reworking; 5) From trace element ratios and Nd isotopic data from basalts, to better understand Proterozoic mantle evolution; 6) To encourage more detailed studies of the anorogenic granite-anorthosite association to better understand its origin and significance in terms of crustal evolution; 7) From combined Nd, Pb, and Sr isotopic data, to more precisely estimate the amount of new continental crust formed during the Proterozoic; 8) To encourage joint P-T and geochronological studies of Proterozoic and high-grade terranes to better understand Proterozoic orogenesis: and 9) To try and understand why hydrothermal precious metal deposits are relatively rare in the Proterozoic compared to both the Archean and the Phanerozoic. The book should be of interest to professionals in the geosciences (especially geochemists, petrologists and structural geologists) and graduate students in the same fields
Archean crustal evolution by Kent C Condie( Book )

15 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The integration of Tectonics/Geochemistry, up-to-date reviews by leading scientists as well as a broad topical coverage of the Archean, are some of the features of this particular volume. As geochronology has progressed in the last 20 years, the Archean has continued to attract interest. Advancements in the understanding of Archean crustal and mantle evolution have progressed rapidly since the first International Archean Symposium in Western Australia (1970). The landmark for the Archean was the NATO Advanced Study Institute at Leicester (1975). At this meeting the Archean truly "came of age". Investigators from many different disciplines focused their expertise on the early history of the earth. For the first time, the nature of the atmosphere, oceans, and life during the Archean was an important part of an Archean symposium. During the most recent Archean Symposium in Perth in 1990, there was a shift in interest from field and trace element data to the new rapidly evolving high-precision U/Pb geochronology of Archean rocks and to detailed structural studies of both low and high grade Archean terrains. The terrane concept so widely applied to the Phanerozoic was proposed for the Archean Yilgarn Province in Western Australia and is now widely accepted for the Archean (as evident by the articles in this book). Plate tectonics is now widely accepted as the principal process that controls the history of continents and oceans. There are, though, well substantiated differences between Archean and post-Archean rocks that indicate that Archean tectonic regimes must have differed in some respects from modern ones. The question of how and to what degree did Archean plate tectonics differ from modern plate tectonics is treated in many of the chapters of this book. Altogether, the editor has presented a selection of articles that provide a fascinating insight into the latest observations in this field

When did plate tectonics begin on planet Earth? by Geological Society of America Penrose Conference( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inspired by a GSA Penrose Conference held in Lander, Wyoming, June 14-18, 2006, this volume discusses the beginning and evolution of plate tectonics on Earth, and gives readers an introduction to some of the uncertainties and controversies related to the evolution of the planet. In the first three sections of the book, which cover isotopic, geochemical, metamorphic, mineralization, and mantle geodynamic constraints, a variety of papers address the question of when "modern-style" plate tectonics began on planet Earth. The next set of papers focuses on the geodynamic or geophysical constraints for the beginning of plate tectonics. The volume's final section synthesizes a broad range of evidence, from planetary analogues and geodynamic modeling, to Earth's preserved geologic record. This work provides an excellent graduate level text summarizing the current state of knowledge and will be of interest to a wide range of earth and planetary scientists."--Publisher's website
