Crustal Structure and Deep Deformation of the Chinese Mainland: Evidence from Deep Seismic Reflection Profiles and Other Geophysical Data Sets collects all available seismic reflection experiments that have been carried out in the Chinese mainland since the 1990s and examines their implications. Such data sheds light on the crustal-scale structure of major tectonic units in the Chinese mainland, which reflect typical tectonic belts seen worldwide. Data from the Tibetan Plateau, which contains double normal thickness crust, is particularly valuable in providing details on understanding ongoing continent-continent collision. Including full analysis and applications of the data as well as high-resolution images of the seismic reflection profiles themselves, Crustal Structure and Deep Deformation of the Chinese Mainland provides valuable insight that can be applied globally for geologists, geophysicists, and seismologists studying crustal structure and tectonics.

"This volume contains a comprehensive, worldwide history of seismological studies of the Earth's crust using controlled sources from 1850 to 2005. Essentially all major seismic projects on land and the most important oceanic projects are covered. The time period 1850 to 1939 is presented as a general synthesis, and from 1940 onward the history and results are presented in separate chapters for each decade, with the material organized by geographical region. Each chapter highlights the major advances achieved during that decade in terms of data acquisition, processing technology, and interpretation methods. For all major seismic projects, the authors provide specific details on field observations, interpreted crustal cross sections, and key references. They conclude with global and continental-scale maps of all field measurements and interpreted Moho contours. An accompanying DVD contains important out-of-print publications and an extensive collection of controlled-source data, location maps, and crustal cross sections."--Publisher's description.

This book aims to map the Precambrian basement, to recognize the paleo-suture zones, and to determine the nature of ancient tectonic regime. It proposes the new concepts of the basement tectonic framework and major tectonic features.

The 19 original papers on the tectonic evolution of mountain systems were collected to mark the 50th anniversary of Price's description of the Canadian Cordillera. A sampling of topics turns up the driving mechanism and three-dimensional circulation of plate tectonics, the Belt-Purcell Basic as the keystone of the Rocky Mountain fold-and-thrust belt in the US and Canada, Silurian-Devonian orogenic events in the central Appalachians and the crystalline southern Appalachians, and defining the eastern boundary of the North Asian craton from structural and subsidence history studies of the Verkhoyansk fold-and-thrust belt. A fold-out sheet of color maps and diagrams is tucked into a pocket inside the back cover.
