Essentials of geology by Stephen Marshak( Book )

24 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The topics covered in this book have been arranged so that students can build their knowledge of geology on a foundation of overarching principles. Thus, the book starts by considering how the Earth formed, and how it is structured, overall, from its surface to its center. With this basic background, students can delve into plate tectonics, the grand unifying theory of geology. Plate tectonics appears early in the book, so that students can use the theory as a foundation from which they can interpret and link ideas presented in subsequent chapters. Knowledge of plate tectonics, for example, helps students understand the suite of chapters on minerals, rocks, and the rock cycle. Knowledge of plate tectonics and rocks together, in turn, provides a basis for studying volcanoes, earthquakes, and mountains. And with this background, students are prepared to see how the map of the Earth has changed through the vast expanse of geologic time, and how energy and mineral resources have developed. The book's final chapters address processes and problems occurring at or near the Earth's surface, from the unstable slopes of hills, down the course of rivers, to the shores of the sea and beyond. This section concludes with a topic of growing concern in society--global change, particularly climate change"--Provided by publisher
Earth structure : an introduction to structural geology and tectonics by Ben A Van der Pluijm( Book )

20 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text introduces the basic principles of structural geology and tectonics to undergraduate students. It covers the description and analysis of geological structures in the Earth's crust; guides students through the principles of stress, strain, and rheology; and describes mechanisms contributing to rock deformation. Contains regional case studies that allow students to apply the knowledge that they have gained from the earlier parts of the book

Origin, architecture, and thermal state of the Lackawanna synclinorium, Pennsylvania : implications for tectonic evolution of the central Appalachians by Michael Joseph Harrison( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Lackawanna synclinorium ("Northern Anthracite basin") is a 110 km-long structural trough that involves Upper Paleozoic strata and spans the boundary between the central and northern Appalachians in northeastern Pennsylvania. Its hinge curves in map view, so the fold is concave toward the foreland. The 075°-trending southern domain of the synclinorium parallels the Valley and Ridge fold-thrust belt, whereas the 030°-trending northern domain protrudes into the Plateau province, where it lies at a high angle to the ~090°-trending plateau folds. The 055°- trending central domain is a transitional domain between the other two domains. Many researchers have assumed that the synclinorium is entirely an Alleghanian thin-skinned tectonic structure. However, seismic reflection data across the structure indicate that much of the synclinorium is a salt-collapse structure - each of the synclinorium limbs is a monocline that verges toward its hinge. Thus, the trend of the central and northern domains was controlled by the location of Silurian salt deposits, not decollement tectonics. Basin-scale brine migration from hinterland to foreland, driven by uplift of the Appalachians, may have removed the salt The southern domain of the synclinorium also contains the salt-collapse structure, but here, the collapse structure was incorporated into the Valley and Ridge fold-thrust belt Greater shortening and foreland-ward translation of the southern domain relative to the northern domain generated the map-view curvature of the synclinorium
Earth portrait of a planet by Stephen Marshak( Recording )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[This text] is an introduction to geology that weaves the theory of plate tectonics and the concept of Earth systems science into its narrative from the beginning, and thus strives to create a modern, coherent image - a portrait - of our planet ... The book starts with cosmology and the formation of the Earth, and then introduces the architecture of our planet, from surface to center ... The book addresses processes and problems occurring at or near the Earth's surface, from the unstable slopes of hills, down the course of rivers, to the shore of the sea and beyond. [It] also includes a summary of atmospheric science and concludes with a topic of growing concern in society - global change, particularly climate change.-Pref

Three-dimensional kinematics and geometries of thrust-related folds by Marlon Scott Wilkerson( )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines three-dimensional kinematics and geometries associated with the development of thrust-related folds. First, the complex relationship between fold geometry and along-strike changes in fault displacement and fault shape was considered by extending equations describing conventional two-dimensional folding models into the third dimension. Graphs of these equations predict relationships between fold axial-surface angles in map view and fault-ramp dip and fault displacement in cross section. Differences in model structure-contour map patterns are sufficient to distinguish between model fold types. Second, the along-strike geometrical changes of a blind duplex in the frontal Ouachita fold-thrust belt, Oklahoma were studied. Subsurface mapping based on interpretations of seismic-reflection and well data indicates that the duplex is substantially larger than previously thought. Changes in three-dimensional geometry of folds associated with this duplex occur due to modification by lateral and oblique fault ramps and a tear fault. The spatial rate of change in displacement based on interpretations from this duplex and other non-metamorphic fold-thrust belts is expressed by [(psi)], the angle of differential transport. I find that a value of [psi]=32° is the empirical limit of differential transport a non-metamorphic thrust sheet can accommodate before it loses coherency and becomes segmented by tear faults. Third, computerized tomographic (CT) images through sand models were used to investigate strain patterns that form in response to movement over oblique fault ramps. Map-view deflections of initially straight marker lines within sand layers suggest that layers truncated by the right-stepping oblique ramp systematically deflect counter-clockwise, whereas marker lines in overlying layers radially diverge from the model center. These differences in displacement most likely reflect variations in vertical stress and imply that actual thrust sheets may display different displacement trajectories depending on vertical position within the thrust sheet. In support of this concept, a model describing the maximum shear stress vector on an oblique fault ramp illustrates a similar depth dependence
