'Mike Johnson and Simon Harley have produced a book that provides an overview of orogenic research and an introduction to the physico-chemical properties of mountain belts. Both are leading authorities in their fields and their excellent understanding of the issues involved comes through in the clearly-structured text … this book deserves to be widely read.' Geoscientist
'… this book offers plenty of food for thought … would be a useful addition to the library of a geologist desiring an overview of the diverse array of topics associated with modern approaches to mountain building and orogenic tectonics.' Rebecca A. Jamieson, Elements
'Logical arrangement, [an] attractive narrative style that leads [the] reader through [the] complex topic of the formation of mountains without weariness, legible and very well prepared illustrations [make] this volume … important … for geologists, geophysicists, petrologists and geochemists.' Marek Lewandowski, Pure and Applied Geophysics
'… a very fresh look at the problems of orogenesis. It can serve as an ultimate reference for those who are specialized in studies of this phenomenon … very important for the professionals as an exceptional (and updated!) synthesis. … an excellent gift for all university lecturers in tectonics, petrology, and general geology.' Zentralblatt für Geologie und Paläontologie
Providing a valuable introduction to the processes that form mountain belts, this book summarises research in this fast-moving field for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of structural geology, plate tectonics and geodynamics, and academics and researchers working in related fields including petrology geochemistry and sedimentology.See all Product description
