Geodynamics of Rifting: Selected Papers of the Geodynamics by P. A. Ziegler

By P. A. Ziegler

This quantity comprises papers giving an interdisciplinary evaluate of 12 significant rift structures from North and South the United States, Africa, Europe and Asia. those papers are written via a global staff of educational and commercial experts every one of whom is such a lot acquainted with the respective rift. The analyzed rifts have been chosen at the foundation of availability of an as-complete-as-possible geological and geophysical info base. 13 papers care for geodynamic approaches governing the evolution of rifts.

A complete digest of the on hand stratigraphic, structural, geophysical and petrological facts, including an intensive record of references, is equipped for every of the analyzed rift platforms. The megatectonic environment and dynamics of evolution of every basin is mentioned. Geodynamic versions are verified opposed to the list of the analyzed rifts.

The query of "active" as opposed to "passive" rifting is addressed. The rifts analyzed diversity in age from Precambrian to fresh and canopy a large spectrum of megatectonic settings. there's dialogue of the evolution of rifts in a plate-tectonic body. The case histories are via discussions addressing the worldwide atmosphere of rifts and geodynamic approaches lively throughout the improvement of rifted basins.
