Gravitational Atlas of Antarctica (Springer Geophysics) by Jaroslav Klokočník,Jan Kostelecký,Aleš Bezděk

By Jaroslav Klokočník,Jan Kostelecký,Aleš Bezděk

This publication provides maps of Antarctica, exploring a number of facets of its annoying geopotential and in response to the EIGEN 6C4 version, arguably the simplest gravitational box version at present on hand. It additionally presents the newest information on Antarctica’s bedrock topography based on Bedmap 2. In an intensive sequence of phase maps the ebook highlights (i) a gravity anomaly (disturbance), (ii) the Marussi tensor of the second one derivatives of the tense geopotential, (iii) invariants and their ratios, (iv) the strike attitude, and (v) digital deformations.

Due to their numerous levels of sensitivity to the density contrasts of causative our bodies lower than the Earth’s floor, those maps supply many information that experience quite a number capability geo-applications. They consultant the reader throughout the complete continent, in segments divided by way of 30 levels of longitude, and during geodetic latitudes of among 60 and ninety levels south. each one section is complemented by way of specified zoom-in maps for chosen localities of distinctive interest.

Tectonic Inheritance in Continental Rifts and Passive Margins (SpringerBriefs in Earth Sciences)

This paintings reports the mechanism of rifting with a spotlight on pre-existing tectonic weaknesses in pre-rift and/or basement rocks, i. e. , on tectonic inheritance. The passive margins which are studied during this ebook are the Norwegian Continental Shelf, the japanese North the United States and the East and West Indian Continental Margins.
