By T M Kusky, M-G Zhai, W XiaoThis quantity honours the occupation of Brian F. Windley, who has been highly influential in assisting to accomplish our present realizing of the evolution of the continental crust, and who has encouraged many scholars and scientists to pursue reports at the evolution of the continents. Brian has studied tactics of continental formation and evolution on such a lot continents and of every age, and has expert and encouraged generations of geologists to adopt careers in reviews of continental evolution. the quantity is prepared into six sections, together with: oceanic and island arc platforms and continental development; tectonics of accretionary orogens and continental progress; progress and stabilization of continental crust; collisions and intraplate procedures; Precambrian tectonics and the start of continents; and energetic tectonics and geomorphology of continental collision and development zones.
