Geology (from the Ancient Greek γῆ, gē, i.e. "earth" and -λoγία, -logia, i.e. "study of, discourse") is an earth science concerned with the solid Earth, the rocks of which it is composed, and the processes by which they change over time. Geology can also refer to the study of the solid features of any terrestrial planet or natural satellite, (such as Mars or the Moon).

Relating the study of the Alps to his own theory of tectonic facies, the author of this monograph demonstrates how the plate tectonics model can be used to understand the geology of mountains.

He uses the model to explain how the Alps and other ancient mountain systems were constructed. (source: Nielsen Book Data).

Tectonic reconstructions based upon characterization of more than thirty litho-tectonic and morpho-structural units, terrane assemblages and tectonic realms, and their bounding suture and fault systems, highlight the intimate and complementary Mesozoic-Cenozoic history of the Northern Andean Block and the Pacific and Caribbean Plates.

In geology, his work included sedimentation in isostatically driven tectonic basins, the active margins of continental plates, physical chemistry of evaporite and pelagic diagenesis, documentation of granulite formation, catastrophic consequences of meteorite impacts, extinction of life forms and the limnology of Lake Zurich.

Book Description. A reference volume on the geology of North Africa, this volume deals with Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco. In great detail the geology, tectonic elements, the geology of the Pan-African Shield, the Phanerozoic geological evolution and most of the lithostratigrahpic units of the five countries are described.The tectonic setting for the origin of the Coast Range ophiolite, however, has remained controversial for some time (e.g., Moores, ; Hopson et al., ; Shervais and Kimbrough, ; Robertson, ; Dickinson et al., ).The controversy arises in part from conflicting evidence from the crustal components of the ophiolite, the character of the overlying .2 Sediments (facies) Introduction Facies classifications Seismic facies The Pickering et al.
