Global Tectonics, 9781405107778 (1405107774), John Wiley & Sons, 2009
As is well known, the study of tectonics, the branch of geology dealing with large-scale Earth structures and their deformation, experienced a major breakthrough in the 1960s with the formulation of plate tectonics. The simultaneous confi rmation of sea fl oor spreading and continental drift, together with the recognition of transform faults and subduction zones, derived from the interpretation of new and improved data from the fi elds of marine geology and geophysics, and earthquake seismology. By 1970 the essentials of plate tectonics – the extent of plates, the nature of the plate boundaries, and the geometry and kinematics of their relative and fi nite motions – were well documented.

As further details emerged, it soon became apparent that plates and plate boundaries are well-defi ned in oceanic areas, where the plates are young, relatively thin, but rigid, and structurally rather uniform, but that this is not true for continental areas. Where plates have continental crust embedded in them they are generally thicker, older and structurally more complex than oceanic plates. Moreover the continental crust itself is relatively weak and deforms more readily by fracture and even by fl ow. Thus the nature of continental tectonics is more complex than a simple application of plate tectonic theory would predict and it has taken much longer to document and interpret. An important element in this has been the advent of Global Positioning data that have revealed details of the deformation fi eld in complex areas.

CORBA Networking With Java
CORBA Networking With Java
This book is not a CORBA technical reference, but is a CORBA book for project management as the author correctly defined. And as a book for project management, this is a very good textbook. If you are a project manager, read it before your schedule delays or your presentation receives questions that you cannot answer. It's not fair to look for...
Low-Frequency Noise in Advanced MOS Devices (Analog Circuits and Signal Processing)
Low-Frequency Noise in Advanced MOS Devices (Analog Circuits and Signal Processing)
The excess noise above the well-known thermal noise and shot noise that shows up at low frequencies, the so-called low-frequency noise (other names are 1/f noise or flicker noise), has raised questions for a long time and has now become more important than ever. The low-frequency noise generated in the electronic devices is a...

Handbook of Biometrics
Handbook of Biometrics
Biometric recognition, or simply Biometrics, is a rapidly evolving field with applications ranging from accessing one's computer to gaining entry into a country. Biometric systems rely on the use of physical or behavioral traits, such as fingerprints, face, voice and hand geometry, to establish the identity of an individual. The deployment of...
