Alpine-Mediterranean Geodynamics (Geodynamics Series) by H. Berckhemer, K. Hsü

By H. Berckhemer, K. Hsü

Published by means of the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Geodynamics sequence, quantity 7.

The ultimate record on geodynamic examine within the Alpine-Mediterranean zone will be incomplete with out a short historic caricature at the constitution and actions of ICG-Working team three. it may even be looked an appreciation to the contributors and sponsors of the operating workforce who've taken, over a long time, an energetic half within the lifetime of the operating team and thereby contributed to the extraordinary development in our wisdom and knowing of the geological evolution of this complicated region.

The rotation of Spain away from France had opened the Bay of Biscay. Prior to rotation he envisaged that Corsica and Sardinia had been joined to northeast Spain and southwest France, with Italy in turn joined onto them. Their differential rotation since late Oligocene time was believed to have opened the Atlantic Ocean and 1) is not comprehensive.
