Creation, Destruction, and Changes in Volume of Continental Crust Through Time

John J.W. Rogers and M. Santosh

in Continents and Supercontinents

Published in print:
2004
Published Online:
November 2020
ISBN:
9780195165890
eISBN:

Subject:
Earth Sciences and Geography, Geology and the Lithosphere

The low density of continental crust creates areas of land that cover about 25% of the world’s surface. The ultimate source of this crust must have been the mantle, but the mechanisms and times of ... More

10.1093/oso/9780199367252.003.0007
Subject:
Earth Sciences and Geography, Oceanography and Hydrology

It’s mind-boggling (and a bit scary) to consider that while most of our planet’s surface is covered with water, only about 2–3% of this water is actually freshwater—that is, water that we can ... More


Age Determination in Lake Deposits

Andrew S. Cohen

in Paleolimnology: The History and Evolution of Lake Systems

Published in print:
2003
Published Online:
November 2020
ISBN:

Subject:
Earth Sciences and Geography, Geology and the Lithosphere

It is almost impossible to overemphasize the importance of good chronological control to paleolimnology. Age control allows us to determine rates of processes and fluxes of materials, and to test ... More
