Active margins and marginal basins of the western Pacific by Brian Taylor, James Natland

By Brian Taylor, James Natland

Published by means of the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph sequence, quantity 88.

This quantity makes a speciality of the volcanic, fluid, sedimentary, and tectonic methods happening within the trencharc-backarc structures of the western Pacific—a ordinary local concentration for reviews of those topics. the result of ocean drilling and linked website surveys within the western Pacific have introduced basic alterations to our realizing of volcanism, crustal deformation, fluid circulate, and sedimentation in lively margins and marginal basins. Our aim this is to synthesize the result of ocean drilling in a multi-disciplinary demeanour, together with a comparability of the findings from drilling legs having comparable subject matters, and to stress the importance of those effects to the wider geoscience community.
