Atlantic Rifts and Continental Margins by Webster Mohriak, Manik Talwani

By Webster Mohriak, Manik Talwani

Published by way of the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph Series.

Atlantic Rifts and Continental Margins fills an enormous info hole within the seismic documentation of the passive margins of the Atlantic basin. New innovations have motivated fresh advancements in conceptual types that combine geological and geophysical equipment for studying deep water areas. specialists talk about a whole spectrum of issues, together with the effect of Precambrian compressional tectonics history at the formation of continental margins, neighborhood gravity and magnetics, special seismic interpretation, and state-of-the-art ideas and strategies. This quantity may be of curiosity either to educational geoscientists operating in basin research and to these engaged in petroleum exploration.Content:

Interaction of ocean waves and wind

This is often the 1st publication to explain intimately the two-way interplay among wind and ocean waves and indicates how ocean waves impact climate forecasting on timescales of five to ninety days. Winds generate ocean waves, yet while airflow is changed end result of the lack of strength and momentum to the waves; hence, momentum loss from the ambience to the sea depends upon the nation of the waves.

Marine Geology: Exploring the New Frontiers of the Ocean

This totally revised and increased version of Marine Geology heavily examines the interrelationship among water and its existence varieties and geologic constructions. It appears to be like at numerous principles for the beginning of the Earth, continents and oceans, and the way those approaches healthy into the foundation of the universe. From vast submarine canyons to ocean volcanoes, this quantity covers the whole realm of undersea landscapes and existence types.

Deep-water contourite systems: modern drifts and ancient series, seismic and sedimentary characteristics

Contourites are a common yet poorly recognized crew of sediments associated with the motion of strong backside currents in deep water. even though we all know they're particularly universal alongside continental margins and during oceanic gateways, they've been surrounded by way of the debate given that they have been first well-known within the early Nineteen Sixties.
