A Continent revealed : the European geotraverse by Derek J Blundell( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Continent Revealed presents the findings of the European Geotraverse (EGT), - a unique study of the tectonic evolution of the continent of Europe, and the first comprehensive cross section of the continental lithosphere. A well-illustrated book and a set of maps and profiles have been put together by key workers in the EGT project to present the great wealth of information yielded by the project. The book outlines the scientific achievements of the European Geotraverse. It tells how the information now available is key evidence in the piecing together of the tectonic evolution of the European continent. The authors have reviewed the work of their colleagues to unravel the nature, evolution and dynamics of the European lithosphere. The stimulating study reveals much of the workings of the earth and the processes that shaped the continent of Europe as we see it today. The maps and profiles, along a 250 kilometre wide swath stretching 4600 kilometres from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean, form a three dimensional picture of the structure, properties and composition of the continental lithosphere of Europe in an atlas format. Many of the data are also presented on an accompanying compact disk. The book completes the boxed set, and is also available on its own in paperback. The EGT project has filled many gaps in our knowledge of the lithosphere, and is a celebration of coordination and communication across geographical borders and between disciplines. This book tells the story of international collaboration on an unprecedented scale, by several hundred geoscientists in a series of well-defined international projects
Looking into the earth : an introduction to geological geophysics by A. E Mussett( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looking Into the Earth comprehensively describes the principles and applications of both 'global' and 'exploration' geophysics on all scales. It forms an introduction to geophysics suitable for those who do not necessarily intend to become professional geophysicists, including geologists, civil engineers, environmental scientists, and field archaeologists. The book is organised into two parts: Part 1 describes the geophysical methods, while Part 2 illustrates their use in a number of extended case histories. Mathematical and physical principles are introduced at an elementary level, and then developed as necessary. Student questions and exercises are included at the end of each chapter. The book is aimed primarily at introductory and intermediate university students taking courses in geology, earth science, environmental science, and engineering. It will also form an excellent introductory textbook in geophysics departments, and will help practising geologists, archaeologists and engineers understand what geophysics can offer their work
