Stuwe K. Geodynamics of the Lithosphere

J Geophys Res As we will be dealing mostly with large scale tectonic questions, the observations that we shall use are also on a large scale. The contents of this textbook evolved from a series of courses given at Cornell University and UCLA to students with a wide range of Our descriptions relate causes and consequences – tectonic processes with field observations. Eastern North America Fig A 8 p. Selected pages Page 3. The underlying causes are much harder to constrain directly. For this, we thee to find a dynamic description of geological processes that is consistent with our observations.

This textbook deals with the fundamental physical processes necessary for an understanding of plate tectonics and a variety of geological phenomena. Dynamic descriptions indicate how stresses and forces behave. In the field, we document only lithospherre consequences of geological processes.

The term tectonics refers to the study dealing with the forces and displacements that have operated to create structures within the lithosphere. Popular passages Page – Angelier J Tectonic analysis of fault slip data sets. In nearly every case the conditions given are much too vague for the matter to be in any sense satisfactory, and a geologist does not seem to mind a few millions of years in matters relating to time.

Page vi – I dislike very much to consider any quantitative problem set by a geologist. E Answers to Problems An Introduction to Structural Geology and Tectonics takes a balanced approach to the subject – emphasizing links between structural features at all scales microscopic, hand-specimen, outcrop, mountain-range and deformation processes.

For example, we shall use observations on the elevation Fig. The large scale structure of the earth is caused by geodynamic processes which are explained using geodynqmics, kinematic and dynamic descriptions.

Nevertheless, if we want to explain the tectonic evolution of our planet, we need to interpret these causes or: The deformations affecting the Earth’s crust are result of the release and the Heat and Temperature While “geodynamic processes” are understood to include a large variety of processes and the term is used quite loosely, the methods of their description involve Tectonic subsidence and uplift are prerequisites for basin formation and terrigenous sediment supply, but sedimentary processes in geodgnamics Geodynamics of the Lithosphere: Other editions – View all Geodynamics of the Lithosphere: Earth Planet Sci Lett
