    Of the planets in the solar system, only Earth has extant plate tectonics. Past and present crustal mobility and deformation, indicative of convective processes, is evident in other planets and moons, but only on Earth do plates form a lithospheric thermal boundary conduction layer that is broken into a number of torsionally rigid spherical caps or shells, whose relative motion can be. Tectonics and crustal evolution peaks and troughs of ages. Much of it has focused discussion on the extent to which the generation and evolution of Earth’s crust is driven by deep-seated processes, such as mantle plumes, or is primarily in response to plate tectonic processes that .

This substantially revised edition includes recently published information relating to plate tectonics and continental Plate tectonics & crustal evolution book. A large number of new figures have been added, and new sections included on meteorites, seismic tomography, mantle convection, accretionary terranes, mantle sources and evolution, continental growth, secular changes in Earth history, also a new chapter on exogenic Earth Cited by: Plate tectonics provides valuable insight into the mechanisms by which the Earth's crust and mantle have evolved.

Plate tectonics is a unifying model that attempts to explain the origin of patterns of deformation in the crust, earthquake distribution, continental drift, and mid-ocean ridges, as well as provides a cooling mechanism for the Earth. The book is not a first introduction to geology or plate tectonics.

In the book, the author all the time quests (in a critical and scientific way) for underlying MECHANISMS that might explain why the crust behaves as it does. This is the strong point of this book. It doesn't merely cover "facts", but seeks to uncover s: 5.

Plate Tectonics & Crustal Evolution, Second Edition covers the role of plate tectonics in the geologic past in light of existing geologic evidence, and examples of plate reconstructions. The book discusses the important physical and chemical properties of the crust and upper mantle in terms of models for crustal origin and Edition: 2.

Ever since plate tectonics revolutionized Earth science, university courses presenting Earth processes in the framework of plate tectonics have become as plentiful as earthquakes. Consequently, this segment of the textbook market, which includes popular classroom classics such as Keary and Vine's Global Tectonics, is heavily : Dietmar Mueller.
