Essentials of geology by Stephen Marshak( Book )

31 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 538 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 398 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( )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contrast in shortening magnitude between the northern and southern domains also is reflected by contrasts in the abundance of mesoscopic layer-parallel shortening structures, and suggested by grain-scale finite strain measurements. Mapping of the Pittston quadrangle in the central domain and structural analysis elsewhere in the synclinorium reveals that mesoscopic faults, folds, and cleavage throughout the synclinorium trend ~075°; thus, these structures parallel the southern domain, but trend at high angles to the northern domain. This observation confirms that there was not substantial east-west shortening in the northern part of the synclinorium, so the structure's shape is due to salt collapse. Notably, mesoscopic structures are better developed in the hanging wall of a regional detachment than in the footwall. Crosscutting structures (e.g., cleavage, faults) indicate that the shortening direction rotated -45° clockwise during the Alleghanian orogeny

Paleogeothermal conditions in the Illinois Basin during late Paleozoic coalification by Jorge Marino( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Illinois Basin (IB) the coals with the highest rank are not located within the deepest part (depocenter) of the basin, but rather occur to the south near to an intrusion, additionally the analysis of vitrinite reflectance in deep wells suggests that the paleogeotherm of the basin contain an inflection at the Mississippian-Pennsylvanian boundary. These observations suggest that topographically driven regional flow of hydrothermal fluids through the Upper Paleozoic Lower Paleozoic aquifers raised the temperature and caused an inflection(s) found in the paleogeotherms. The purpose of this dissertation was to; characterize the paleogeothermal architecture of the basin, through analysis of vitrinite reflectance; determine if there is independent evidence for regional hydrothermal fluid flow in the basin at the time of coalification, through the study of conodont alteration, CL petrography, study of fluid inclusions, and measurement of stable-isotopes; and model the basin using the Basin2 finite-difference program. The results demonstrate that paleotemperatures decrease from south to north, and that the character of the paleogeotherm changes markedly with location. In the Southern Zone the paleogeotherm overall is very irregular. In the Central Zone, the slope of the paleogeotherm displays a single notable inflection. And in the Northern Zone of the basin, the paleogeotherm has a straight slope that parallels the present-day geotherm. The results from conodont alteration, CL petrography, study of fluid inclusions, and measurement of stable-isotopes suggest that there was an episode of hydrothermal fluid flow through the IB, that the flow event was of short duration, and that the flow was channeled through Mississippian strata. The paragenetic sequence above the unconformity is different from that below, suggesting that, the unconformity separates two distinct paleohydrologic systems. The modeling indicates that the best scenario is one with a transient heat source at the southern end of the basin representing the intrusion, with a topographic gradient sloping from south to north that drives flow; and with a high permeability zone in Mississippian strata. Such a scenario can produce the high temperature to the south, the decrease in temperature to the north and a small inflection at the Mississippian-Pennsylvanian boundary
