In this reference for geologists, 20 contributions from international scientists discuss the analytical, physical, and numerical modeling of tectonic processes. A sampling of topics includes types of transpressional and transtensional deformation, modeling of anisotropic grain growth in minerals, salt tectonics and sedimentation along Atlantic margins, and new apparatus for thermomechanical analogue modeling. The text is accompanied throughout by baw illustrations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)The experiments simulate transfer zone development in fold and thrust belts. Models showed a marked contrast in structural style between domains that were underlain or not underlain by a thin viscous layer, representing brittle-viscous andanbsp;...
