Most widely held works by J. F Dewey
Continental extensional tectonics( Book )

9 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume includes papers from a conference held in April 1985 at Durham University, which aimed to examine the geometry and mechanics of continental extension and their effects on basin development and plutonic and metamorphic processes. The importance of extensional tectonics in the Basin and Range region of the western USA is recognised and the results of recent studies in this area summarised. Other regions described range from the Aegean and Red Sea to SE Australia and Antarctica. Further papers emphasise the recent advances in our understanding of continental extension based on seismic data
Continental transpressional and transtensional tectonics by R. E Holdsworth( Book )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many present-day and ancient continental deformation systems appear to have formed due to significantly oblique relative plate motions. Transpression and transtension zones are formed where the oblique motions involve components of compression and extensions, respectively. This book covers the recent advances in our understanding or transpressional and transtensional deformation zones both in theory and in real geological settings from around the world

Responses to History of Geophysics Survey by Center for History of Physics (American Institute of Physics)( )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Responses to a survey of approximately 250 leading geophysicists worldwide, conducted by the American Institute of Physics (AIP) Center for History of Physics and the Committe on History of Geophysics of the American Geophysical Union in 1997. Recipients were asked to send copies of their curriculum vitae and a list of publications as Part One of the survey and were then asked to discuss their entry into science in general and geophysics specifically as a career; how their scientific achievements came about and major efforts they were involved in which did not achieve the hoped for results; changes from one discipline to another; funding sources; the role of other disciplines in their own research; their work as educators; and their involvement in geophysics-related institutions. Responses, including questionnaires, curriculum vitae, lists of publications, or autobiographical statements, were contributed by: Philip H. Abelson, Keiiti Aki, Leroy R. Alldredge, Clarence R. Allen, Kinsey A. Anderson, Gustaf O. Arrhenius, W. I. Axford, George E. Backus, Ralph B. Baldwin, Peter M. Banks, Charles A. Barth, Markus Bêath, William A. Berggren, Bruce A. Bolt, John D.
