The editors of these selected contributions from the week-long Expanding Earth Workshop held in Erice note that,

"The last century was dominated by the creation of scientific theories: the newborn Relativistic, Quantum and Cosmological Theories are proper examples. The Earth Sciences followed this trend by proposing the principles of Plate tectonics. On the contrary, the concept of the Expanding Earth was not developed as a commonly accepted paradigm, but was an open field of original investigations, interpretations, and results. This innovative attitude is evident in the different interpretations of the Pacific and Indian oceans paleogeographical evolution; in the cosmological or incidental motor of expansion (still to be identified);in the different estimates of the Earth's radial expansion. This is a positive sign of vitality: we cannot crystallize these ideas in a few postulates from which we may deduce all the answers, and to which we may constrain all data. The Expanding Planet scheme provides a common explanation of several complex and debated issues relating to Paleontology, Paleomagnetism, Geology, Climatology and Astrogeodesy."

Which sets the scene for the subject of this book - a wide-ranging discussion about some of the most perplexing problems at the very limit of our knowledge in the geological sciences. Can we really believe that the Earth has expanded in size? And if so how? What evidence supports this view? Has gravity varied and is there any evidence in support of this? Is gravity variation related to the expanding Earth? All of these questions (and more) are discussed in great detail by a number of experts from many difference backgrounds, all with the one main objective of trying to understand how our world works more clearly.
