Description

Introduction; The shape of ocean basins; The evolution of ocean basins; The structure and formation of. .

This is an invaluable textbook, prepared by the Open University team and designed so that it can be read on its own or as part of the OU course.

The first chapters describe the processes that shape the ocean basins, determine the structure and composition of oceanic crust and control the major features of continental margins. The first chapters describe the processes that shape the ocean basins, determine the structure and composition of oceanic crust and control the major features of continental margins. How the 'hot springs' of the oceanic ridges cycle chemical elements between seawater and oceanic crust is then explored. Sediment distributions are examined next, to demonstrate how sediments can preserve a record of past climatic and sea-level changes.

Home University, Open The Ocean Basins: Their Structure and Evolution (Open University. Contents: the shape of ocean basins; the evolution of ocean basins; the structure and formation of oceanic lithosphere; hydrothermal circulation in oceanic crust; palaeoceanography and sea-level changes. Dr R Thompson University of Edinburgh I found the text extremely useful, clear and straight forward. A valuable introductory text which I will certainly recommend to students on my courses.

This Volume describes the processes that shape ocean basins, determine the structure and composition of the ocean crust, and control the major features of the continental margins. Further subjects examined are the 'hot springs' of the deep oceans, the main pattern of sediment distribution in ocean basins including the recording of past climatic and sea-level changes, and the role of oceans as an integral part of global chemical cycles. Each Volume in this set is well laid out and copiously illustrated with full colour photographs, graphs and graphics. Questions to help develop arguments and/or understanding can be found in the text and at the end of each chapter, with worked answers provided at the back of each Volume. Each chapter also concludes with a sum mary to help consolidate understanding before the next chapter is begun.
