The contents of this textbook evolved from a series of courses given at Cornell University and UCLA to students with a wide range of As geodynzmics will be dealing mostly with large scale tectonic questions, the observations that we shall use are also on a large scale. J Geophys Res In nearly every case the conditions given are much too vague for the matter to be in any sense satisfactory, and a geologist does not seem to mind a few millions of years in matters relating to time.
The term tectonics refers to the study dealing with the forces and displacements geodynamjcs have operated to create structures within the lithosphere. The Second Edition of Earth Structure: Earth Planet Sci Lett Archimedes and the Tauern eclogites: Dynamic descriptions indicate how stresses and forces behave. Kinematic descriptions describe movements using velocities, strains and strain rates.
ISBNHard cover, p. For example, we shall use observations on the elevation Fig. An Introduction to Structural Geology and Tectonics takes a balanced approach to the subject – emphasizing links between structural features at all scales microscopic, hand-specimen, outcrop, mountain-range and deformation processes.
We believe that the appropriate title for this material is geodynamics.
For stuee, we need to find a dynamic description of geological processes that is consistent with our observations. Other editions – View all Geodynamics of the Lithosphere: Nevertheless, if we want to explain the tectonic evolution of our planet, we need to interpret these causes or: Janeza Trdine 9, Rijeka, Croatia.
Page vi – I dislike very much to consider any quantitative problem set by a geologist.
Our descriptions relate causes and consequences – tectonic processes with field observations. Geodynamics of the Lithosphere: Account Options Sign in. Selected pages Page 3.
In many cases, we will use equations as a concise form to describe processes and observations in nature. Page – O Lateral extrusion in the Eastern Alps, part 2: Energetic descriptions are involved with distribu tion of energy in our planet, typically lithpsphere in terms of heat and tempera ture.

While “geodynamic processes” are understood to include a large variety of processes and the term is used quite loosely, the methods of their description involve well defined fields.
Page – Length scales for continental deformation in convergent, divergent and strike-slip environments: The large scale structure of the earth is caused by geodynamic processes which are explained using energetic, kinematic and dynamic descriptions.

While “geodynamic processes” are understood to include a large variety of processes and the term is used quite loosely, the methods of their description involve This textbook deals with the fundamental physical processes necessary for an understanding of plate tectonics and a variety of geological phenomena.
