Evolution of the Arctic-North Atlantic and the Western Tethys by Peter A Ziegler( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A broad, multi-disciplinary overview of the late Paleozoic to Recent geological evolution of much of northeastern North America, Greenland, all of Europe, and the northern parts of North Africa. This outstanding synthesis of regional geology retraces the evolution of sedimentary basins developed during the rifting phases that preceded the opening of North Atlantic ocean basins and highlights the scope of the associated intra-plate phenomena
Super-deep continental drilling and deep geophysical sounding by Karl Fuchs( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The International Seminar on Super-deep continental drilling and deep geophysical research was held at Yaroslawl/Wolga in the USSR, August 23-29, 1988. The unique feature of this international conference was the combination of reports on drilling technology, scientific interpretation of logs from boreholes with reports on geological transects and on deep geophysical sounding. The new frontier in the exploration of the lithosphere is the combination of remote sensing and imaging with deep drilling, whereby the latter provides direct access to the deeper part of the crystalline Earth's crust. Super-deep drilling into depth ranges with conditions of high pressure-temperature and high chemical reaction rates challenges the imagination and abilities of the best of engineers. Super-deep drilling is also a tremendous challenge to all geoscientists since it provides "ground truth" for a wide spectrum of remote sensing and imaging methods that can be applied to the crystalline crust. The reader will find the latest achievements about drilling into the continental crust

Global geoscience transect( )

in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Global Geoscience Transects Project (GGT) is an ambitious international effort that draws together geoscientists in a variety of disciplines to produce the best possible portrayal of the composition and structure of the Earth's crust. Since its inception in 1985, GGT has encouraged geoscientists in all countries of the world to compile cross sections of the Earth up to a few thousands of kilometers in length and drawn to the base of the crust using all available geological, geophysical, and geochemical information. Transects are drawn to common scales and formats so that the Earth's crust in different parts of the world can be directly compared."--Foreword, vol. 9
