The Alps, Carpathians and Dinarides form a complex, highly curved and strongly coupled orogenic system. Motions of the European and Adriatic plates gave birth to a number of ’oceans’ and microplates that led to several distinct stages of collision. Although the Alps serve as a classical example of collisional orogens, it becomes clearer that substantial questions on their evolution can only be answered in the Carpathians and Dinarides. Our understanding of the geodynamic evolution of the Alpine-Dinaride-Carpathian System has substantially improved and will continue to develop; this

This book is the first to describe the history of geoconservation. It draws on experience from the UK, Europe and further afield, to explore topics including: what is geoconservation; where, when and how did it start; who was responsible; and how has it differed across the world? Geological and geomorphological features, processes, sites and specimens, provide a resource of immense scientific and educational importance. They also form the foundation for the varied and spectacular landscapes that help define national and local identity as well as many of the great tourism destinations. Mankind&

Geological mapping cannot be taught by lectures or in a laboratory, it must be learnt in the field. Now in its fourth edition, this is a basic guide to field techniques in mapping geology. Concise and pocket sized so that it can be carried in the field for instant reference. Basic Geological Mapping, Fourth Edition provides the reader with all the necessary practical information and techniques they need. It covers a wide spectrum of different conditions, needs and types of countries. Features include: New sections on GPS and computerised methods to provide reader

This volume, in honour of Peter L. Forey, is about fishes as palaeobiogeographic indicators in the Mesozoic and Cenozoic. The last 250 million years in the history of Earth have witnessed the break-up of Pangaea, affecting the biogeography of organisms. Fishes occupy almost all freshwater and marine environments, making them a good tool to assess palaeogeographic models.The volume begins with studies of Triassic chondrichthyans and lungfishes, with reflections on Triassic palaeogeography. Phylogeny and distribution of Late Jurassic neoselachians and basal teleosts are broached, and are followe

The 30th International Geological Congress was held in Beijing, China in August 1997. Leading scientists convened to present their findings and views to the international geological research community. Volume 7 of 26 focuses on orogenic belts and geological mapping. All articles in the proceedings have been refereed and keynote papers have been included in Volume 1. These proceedings aim to present a view of contemporary geology and should be of interest to researchers in the geological sciences.

When faced with a scientific problem, researchers usually draw on both existing pertinent knowledge as well as collecting new data in order to construct an answer. Geological prior information is the term used to describe all previously existing knowledge of a geological nature. Examples of such information include field interpretations, process models, expert judgments and common assumptions, together with the uncertainties associated with each. Geological prior information represents a new and emerging field within the geosciences, where methods and applications are still in their infancy. T

The 30th International Geological Congress was held in Beijing, China in August 1997. Leading scientists convened to present their findings and views to the international geological research community. This final volume focuses on comparative planetology, geological education and the history of the geosciences. All articles in the proceedings have been refereed and keynote papers have been included in Volume 1. These proceedings aim to present a view of contemporary geology and should be of interest to researchers in the geological sciences.
