A Continent Revealed: The European Geotraverse, Structure by D. J. Blundell,R. Freeman,Stephan Mueller

By D. J. Blundell,R. Freeman,Stephan Mueller

A Continent published offers the findings of the ecu Geotraverse (EGT), - a different examine of the tectonic evolution of the continent of Europe, and the 1st complete go component to the continental lithosphere. A well-illustrated booklet and a collection of maps and profiles were prepare by way of key employees within the EGT venture to offer the good wealth of data yielded through the undertaking. The ebook outlines the clinical achievements of the eu Geotraverse. It tells how the knowledge now on hand is essential facts within the piecing jointly of the tectonic evolution of the ecu continent. The authors have reviewed the paintings in their colleagues to resolve the character, evolution and dynamics of the ecu lithosphere. The stimulating examine unearths a lot of the workings of the earth and the methods that formed the continent of Europe as we see it at the present time. The maps and profiles, alongside a 250 kilometre vast swath stretching 4600 kilometres from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean, shape a 3 dimensional photo of the constitution, houses and composition of the continental lithosphere of Europe in an atlas structure. a number of the info also are provided on an accompanying compact disk. The e-book completes the boxed set, and can be on hand by itself in paperback. The EGT venture has crammed many gaps in our wisdom of the lithosphere, and is a party of coordination and conversation throughout geographical borders and among disciplines. This ebook tells the tale of foreign collaboration on an unparalleled scale, via numerous hundred geoscientists in a sequence of well-defined overseas projects.
