Plate tectonics by Xavier Le Pichon( Book )

32 editions published between 1973 and 1976 in 3 languages and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Developments in Geotectonics, 6: Plate Tectonics focuses on the exposition of the plate-tectonics hypothesis, as well as plate boundaries, stratification, and kinematics. The book first offers information on the rheological stratification of the mantle and kinematics of relative movements. Topics include lithosphere, asthenosphere, kinematics of finite motions, measurements of instantaneous movements, and worldwide kinematic pattern. The text then ponders on movements relative to a frame external to the plates and processes at accreting plate boundaries. Discussions focus on reference frames

La mort by Yijie Tang( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in French and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'approche proposée ici ne part pas d'une démarche intellectuelle, abstraite, mais de la mort rencontrée chez les proches. Tang Yi Jie parle de la mort de sa soeur, et évoque ensuite la présence de la mort dans la philosophie traditionnelle chinoise, avec le bouddhisme et le confucianisme. Xavier Le Pichon parle lui de ses parents, et évoque la présence de la mort dans la religion chrétienne

De la dérive des continents à la tectonique des plaques by Xavier Le Pichon( Visual )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La jacquette indique : "Lorsque j'ai commencé ma carrière de chercheur en 1959, nous ne connaissions même pas l'existence de la dorsale médio-océanique, la plus grande structure de notre planète puisqu'elle fait 60 000 kilomètres de long. L'océan était considéré comme au moins aussi âgé que les continents. Or nous avons découvert qu'il était trente fois plus jeune. Nos connaissances sur la partie de la Terre recouverte par l'eau étaient donc embryonnaires. C'est l'exploration des océans qui a conduit à élaborer dans les années soixante la tectonique des plaques proposant pour la première fois un modèle quantitatif cohérent de l'évolution de notre planète. Paradoxalement, ce modèle, encore très schématique, s'appuyait sur des données entièrement océaniques. Aujourd'hui, grâce aux techniques géodésiques spatiales, la tectonique des plaques progresse très rapidement à partir de données concernant cette fois exclusivement les continents. Ce n'est plus simplement le mouvement des grandes plaques qui est déterminé. On obtient désormais la description détaillée des déformations continues qui affectent les frontières de plaque et qui se traduisent par l'activité sismique. On atteint ainsi une compréhension bien meilleure de ce que l'on appelle le cycle sismique, cycle qui amène le retour semi-périodique des très grands séismes."
