Back-Arc Spreading Systems: Geological, Biological, by David M. Christie, Charles R. Fisher, Sang-Mook Lee, Sharon

By David M. Christie, Charles R. Fisher, Sang-Mook Lee, Sharon Givens

Published by way of the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph Series.

New ocean crust is continually created the place tectonic plates diverge. a particular form of oceanic crust is shaped through back-arc spreading structures that parallel oceanic island arcs at the part clear of the subducting plate. Volatile-rich and spatially variable, back-arc spreading platforms are a average laboratory for multi-disciplinary stories of seafloor production, the movement of magma from the deep earth, and the hydrothermal ecosystems that this circulation sustains.

Derived from the celebrated Ridge 2000 InterRidge Theoretical Institute held in 2004, Back-Arc Spreading structures: Geological, organic, Chemical, and actual Interactions stories the kingdom of the technology, with decide upon case studies.

Experienced researchers in, and scholars of, marine geology, organic oceanography, marine geochemistry, volcanology, petrology, and geo- and paleomagnetism will locate this quantity an important source now and for the close to future.
