GEODYNAMICS OF THE LITHOSPHERE STUWE PDF

Se alle titler Beskrivelse af Geodynamics of the Lithosphere The large scale structure of the earth is caused by geodynamic processes which are explained using energetic, kinematic and dynamic descriptions. Energetic descriptions are in- volved with distribution of energy in our planet, typically expressed in terms of heat and temperature. Kinematic descriptions describe movements using velocities, strains and strain rates and Dynamic descriptions indicate how stresses and forces behave. As structural and metamorphic geologists we document in the field only the consequences of geological processes. The underlying causes are much harder to constrain directly.

While "geodynamic processes" are understood to include a large variety of processes and the term is used quite loosely, the methods of their description involve well defined fields. Kinematic descriptions describe movements using velocities, strains and strain rates. Dynamic descriptions indicate how stresses and forces behave.

In the field, we document only the consequences of geological processes. The underlying causes are much harder to constrain directly. Nevertheless, if we want to explain the tectonic evolution of our planet, we need to interpret these causes or: "driving forces". For this, we need to find a dynamic description of geological processes that is consistent with our observations. Our descriptions relate causes and consequences - tectonic processes with field observations.

In many cases, we will use equations as a concise form to describe processes and observations in nature. As we will be dealing mostly with large scale tectonic questions, the observations that we shall use are also on a large scale.

For example, we shall use observations on the elevation Fig. This book differs from its predecessor Geodynamics by Turcotte and Schubert, a classic textbook in its own right, in that the target audience purportedly is the field geologists. The high point of the book is its treatment of mathematics and the way in which it is made accessible to field-oriented geologists. Here is a book that is highly eligible to be included in the geology graduate studies under our universities.

I also encourage our geologists to read this educative book, indeed a valuable addition to the expanding information base on quantitative geodynamics. I liked the problems at the end of each chapter. I believe that anyone with a solid math and physical science background and an interest in quantitative geology would enjoy this book …. Each chapter ends with a series of concise problems with elegant solutions …. The author is good at explaining why equations have the form they do, and what the different terms within them mean.

Anyone who can really follow and master this book in detail will be a very good all-round quantitative geologist indeed. In my opinion, his efforts are rewarded with a text that I think will stand the test of time ….

Houseman, The Australian Geologist, Issue , "The book intents to bridge the gap between mathematics and the modelling of geodynamic processes. The author assures that little mathematical knowledge is required. Manuel Sintubin, Geologica Belgica, Vol.
