Book Description

31 Dec 1983 0080363652 978-0080363653
This Volume describes the processes that shape ocean basins, determine the structure and composition of the ocean crust, and control the major features of the continental margins. Further subjects examined are the 'hot springs' of the deep oceans, the main pattern of sediment distribution in ocean basins including the recording of past climatic and sea-level changes, and the role of oceans as an integral part of global chemical cycles. Each Volume in this set is well laid out and copiously illustrated with full colour photographs, graphs and graphics. Questions to help develop arguments and/or understanding can be found in the text and at the end of each chapter, with worked answers provided at the back of each Volume. Each chapter also concludes with a sum mary to help consolidate understanding before the next chapter is begun.

4.0 out of 5 stars NOT Horrible... 10 Sep 2012
By D. Covington - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The book starts off with a short historical background and contrary to the other review, the author does explain MANY items in and during the course of the book. It does seem inconsistant in what it does explain or embellish. It is like they are trying to explain the techniques, concepts and ideas that are outside of marine geology and assumes more knowledge on geological concepts. What is starting to become somewhat of a valid concern is that some of the data is getting dated and is lacking, naturally, related research since 1988 when this edition was published. Thus the relatively inexpensive price tag I think.
