Contents Notes
"Geodynamics provides the fundamentals necessary for an understanding of the workings of the solid Earth. The Earth is a heat engine, with the source of the heat the decay of radioactive elements and the cooling of the Earth from its initial accretion. The work output includes earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and mountain building. Geodynamics comprehensively explains these concepts in the context of the role of mantle convection and plate tectonics ... This new edition of Geodynamics will once again prove to be a classic textbook for intermediate to advanced undergraduates and graduate students in geology, geophysics, and Earth science"--Page [2], cover.
