Circum-Pacific Orogenic Belts and Evolution of the Pacific by J. W. H. Monger, J. Francheteau

By J. W. H. Monger, J. Francheteau

Published by way of the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Geodynamics sequence, quantity 18.

The foreign Lithosphere application (ILP) used to be tested in 1981 to inspire interdisciplinary, overseas study at the nature, dynamics and beginning of the lithosphere. to do that quite a few operating teams and coordinating comittees have been organize to target particular facets of ILP.

The mandate of operating team 2 (WG2), which was once chaired by means of Rob Van der Voo of the college of Michigan, was once "Phanerozoic plate motions and orogenesis."
