Transform Plate Boundaries and Fracture Zones bridges the gap between plate tectonic theory and geodynamics, offering an assessment of the state-of-the-art, pending questions, and future directions relating to the study of transform plate boundaries and fault zones. The book is divided into two parts that present the main concepts of transform faults and fracture zones, terminology and nomenclature, and then worldwide examples of transform structures and fracture zones. Each chapter follows a consistent format that includes tectonic origin, a brief description of its evolution, present-day observations (e.g. structural geology, GPS, rheology); diversity of seismic activity, and related seismic hazards. With its multidisciplinary approach and thorough coverage of current research in plate tectonics, this book is a timely reference for a variety of researchers, including geophysicists, seismologists, structural geologists and others working in related fields, such as exploration geophysics and natural hazards. Includes a variety of case studies and examples of transform structures and fracture zones, putting the information into a broader context Addresses innovative and provocative ideas about the activity of fracture zones in a multidisciplinary and consistent manner Reviews basic (but up-to-date) concepts related to plate tectonics and more specialized research

The beginning of the new millennium has been particularly devastating in terms of natural disasters associated with tectonic plate boundaries, such as earthquakes in Sumatra, Chile, Japan, Tahiti, and Nepal; the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean tsunamis; and volcanoes in Indonesia, Chile, Iceland that have produced large quantities of ash causing major disruption to aviation. In total, half a million people were killed by such natural disasters. These recurring events have increased our awareness of the destructive power of

Plate tectonics caused a revolution in our understanding of the Earth. It has aided our understanding of why earthquakes and volcanoes are found in distinct locations, how oceans form and disappear, and how mountain ranges were built. In this volume, Peter Molnar explores the history and significance of plate tectonics.

How are mountains formed? Why are there old and young mountains? Why do the shapes of South America and Africa fit so well together? Why is the Pacific surrounded by a ring of volcanoes and earthquake prone areas while the edges of the Atlantic are relatively peaceful? Frisch and Meschede and Blakey answer all these questions and more through the presentation and explanation of the geo-dynamic processes upon which the theory of continental drift is based and which have lead

The 1960s revealed a new and revolutionary idea in geological thought: that the continents drift with respect to one another. After having been dismissed for decades as absurd, the concept gradually became part of geology's basic principles. We now know that the Earth's crust and upper mantle consist of a small number of rigid plates that move, and there are significant boundaries between pairs of plates, usually known as earthquake belts. Plate tectonics now explains much of the structure and

This volume collects some recent studies on the motions, mechanics, and earthquakes that take place within plate boundary zones. Many of the studies reflect advances made possible by the development of space geodetic techniques. Among the topics of the 21 papers are tectonic processes in the Eurasian-African plate boundary zone, the structure of the Dead Sea basin, the January 2001 Bhuj earthquake in India, geological investigations of the Kamchatka region in Russia, and crustal shortening and extension in the central Andes.
