The Role of Geophysics in the New Global Tectonics
Rudman, Albert J.
Sci Teacher, 36, 7, 21-26, 69 Oct
Summarizes the developments in geophysics that have led to the concept of the new global tectonics, which attempts to explain such worldwide features as oceanic ridges and trenches, island arcs and young mountain chains, while it develops processes that cause earthquakes, volcanoes and major faulting. Evidence for the hypotheses of continental drift, sea-floor spreading and the role of arc-like structures are presented. (LC)
