Mantle Dynamics: Treatise on Geophysics (BOK)
Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
"Mantle Dynamics" provides an in-depth overview of the field of mantle dynamics in its present state. It surveys the physics and fluid dynamics of mantle convection, with theoretical, laboratory and computational methods. The volume also reviews the present understanding of convection in Earth's mantle, including energy sources and thermal evolution, upper-mantle flow, the fate of subducting slabs, hotspots and mantle plumes, and convective mixing and mantle geochemistry. This self-contained volume starts with an overview of the subject then explores each topic in detail. There are extensive reference lists and cross references with other volumes to facilitate further research. Full-color figures and tables support the text and aid in understanding. It includes content suited for both the expert and non-expert.
