0 Reviews. Dynamics and evolution of the lithosphere: the framework for earth resources and the reduction of hazards.

Understanding the origin and evolution of the continental crust continues to challenge Earth scientists. Lithospheric Discontinuities offers a multidisciplinary review of fine scale layering within the continental lithosphere to aid the interpretation of geologic layers.

Once Earth scientists can accurately decipher the history, internal dynamics, and evolution of the continental lithosphere. The earth is seen as a dynamic body undergoing convection that is driven by its internal heat. The elucidation of the nature and evolution of the earth's lithosphere, that has provided all minerals and energy resources and the space in which we live is one of the principal motives behind the.

This volume brings together the results of studies that are fundamental to our understanding of crust and lithosphere dynamics.

It begins with a discussion of plate kinematics and mechanics. Then it considers the evidence from surface heat flow, stress measurements, and magmatism for the thermal and mechanical structure of the lithosphere. Discontinuities associated with lithosphere and lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary.

An integrated study of the evolving physical and chemical processes associated with lithosphere asthenosphere interaction. Written for academic and researchgeoscientists, particularly in the field of tectonophysics, geophysicists, geodynamics, seismology, structural geology, environmental geology, and geoengineering, Lithospheric Discontinuities.

The processes that generate stress in the lithosphere are incompletely understood. Whereas it is obvious that lithospheric deformation (and topography) is ultimately caused by cooling of the Earth from the time of formation, it is less clear how lithospheric deformation is coupled to mantle flow and how this affect stresses.

Part of this is due to the somewhat complicated rheology of the.
