Summary

Responding to reviews, comments from instructores and developments in the subject itself, the authors have significantly extended the coverage, while in places restructuring the book. Sections expanded in the second edition include those on the formation of oceanic crust, the variety of passive continental margins and the nature of convection in the mantle. A new chapter has been added, drawing together the coverage of continental rifts and sedimentary basins.

Features

  • Careful balance between geology and geophysics
  • New section of full colour plates
  • Addition of a new chapter drawing together the coverage of continental rifts and sedimentary basins
  • Expanded coverage, particularly of deep seismic reflection, hot spots and petrogenesis
