    Continents and Supercontinents frames that controversy by giving all the necessary background on how continental crust is formed, modified, and destroyed, and what forces move plates. It also discusses how these processes affect the composition of seawater, climate, and the evolution of life.   The basic concept of this book is really cool: a landscape photography album with a theme of geological history, with explanatory and narrative text. The photos are large, beautiful, demonstrative, illustrative, and evocative, and I learned a lot of interesting stuff from the text, as well as from the many interesting maps and diagrams/5.

The Aleutian arc has the requisite thickness (30 km) to build continental crust, but it differs strongly from continental crust in its composition and reflectivity structure. Seismic velocities and the compositions of erupted lavas suggest that the Aleutian crust has a mafic bulk composition, in contrast to the andesitic bulk composition of Cited by:

Changes in climate and sea level are nothing new - over the last million years, the Earth has been slowly but constantly changing from within. We now know that our planet’s surface, far from being fixed or stable, is composed of tectonic plates in continual movement, drifting in oceans which themselves appear and disappear over millennia.

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume Understanding the inner workings of our planet and its relationship to processes closer to the surface remains a frontier in the geosciences. Manmade probes barely reach ˜10 km depth and volcanism rarely brings up samples from deeper than ˜ km.

No more mountain ranges will be built, and the continents will become very flat. Eventually the oceans may cover the continents again (shallow seas, buildup of carbonate platforms, change of seawater composition because terrestrial input cut off, possibly a new stage in evolution).

theory An explanation for some natural phenomenon with a large body of supporting evidence; theories must be testable by experiments and/or observations, as in the case with plate tectonic theory. The Earth's continental crust has a key role in the evolution of the planet, yet when and how it formed remain the subject of much debate.
