Brian Taylor, James Natland's Active margins and marginal basins of the western Pacific PDF

By Brian Taylor, James Natland

Published by way of the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph sequence, quantity 88.

This quantity specializes in the volcanic, fluid, sedimentary, and tectonic tactics happening within the trencharc-backarc platforms of the western Pacific—a average neighborhood concentration for stories of those topics. the result of ocean drilling and linked web site surveys within the western Pacific have introduced primary adjustments to our realizing of volcanism, crustal deformation, fluid movement, and sedimentation in energetic margins and marginal basins. Our target here's to synthesize the result of ocean drilling in a multi-disciplinary demeanour, together with a comparability of the findings from drilling legs having comparable issues, and to stress the importance of those effects to the wider geoscience community.
