New Frontiers in Tectonic Research

General Problems, Sedimentary Basins and Island Arcs

Edited by Evgenii Sharkov

Institute of Geology of Ore Deposits Petrography Mineralogy and Geochemistry, Russia

This book is devoted to different aspects of tectonic research. Syntheses of recent and earlier works, combined with new results and interpretations, are presented in this book for diverse tectonic settings. Most of the chapters include up-to-date material of detailed geological investigations, often combined with geophysical data, which can help understand more clearly the essence of mechanisms of different tectonic processes. Some chapters are dedicated to general problems of tectonics. Another block of chapters is devoted to sedimentary basins and special attention in this book is given to tectonic processes on active plate margins.
