Explore the dramatic forces that have shaped the Icelandic landscape over 30 million years

Iceland’s formation and ongoing evolution offers a masterclass in geophysical processes. Iceland: Tectonics, Volcanics, and Glacial Features presents a regional guide to the landscape of this unique island.

Accessible to academics, students, novice geologists, and tourists alike, chapters reflect the most popular way to explore the island, beginning in the southwest region and ending in the northwest.  

Volume highlights include:

  • An overview of Iceland’s geologic history
  • Exploration of the dynamic tectonic setting that has shaped the island
  • Descriptions of landscape features of active and extinct volcanoes
  • Discussion of the impact of glaciation in the past and present
  • Techniques for monitoring geologic hazards
  • Developments in harnessing geothermal energy

The American Geophysical Union promotes discovery in Earth and space science for the benefit of humanity. Its publications disseminate scientific knowledge and provide resources for researchers, students, and professionals.

Iceland: Tectonics, Volcanics, and Glacial Features presents advanced knowledge of the geologic processes that form the landscape in Iceland. Although there are numerous geology books that describe the influence of active and dormant volcanoes, past and present glacial activity, and plate tectonics on Iceland, there is not one comprehensive or user-friendly monograph that combines these major driving forces of the landscape for the purposes of complementing an advanced geology course.

Volume highlights include:

  • Comprehensive literature reviews of tectonic and volcanic processes that have driven Icelandic land features for the past 25 million years
  • Discussion of four major volcanic zones -- Reykjanes Ridge, West and North Volcanic Zones, and the East Volcanic Zone, that contribute to the island's 130 active and extinct volcanoes, 18 of which have erupted since human settlement of Iceland circa 900 CE. These intense geothermal gradients near to the surface is harnessed to provide Icelander's with a sustainable energy source throughout the country (making up 26% of energy used)
  • Discussion of common tectonic fissure swarm volcanism, and explosive/non-explosive volcanic eruptions that altered the landscape
  • Discussions of Quaternary glacial episodes and how those compare to current trends. This involves discussions of the glacial history of Iceland that is complex, with nine glacial and interglacial stages been identified during the Pliocene-Pleistocene epochs. By 2.5 mya half of the island was covered in ice; by 2.2 mya the entire island was capped by glacial ice for the first time in geologic history.
  • Although the Vatnajokull glacial is a quarter of the size it once was, remnant glacial features remain to be studied including glacial lagoons, moraines, hanging valleys, sandur plains, and outwash deposits. Ridgeline or glacial hikes provide perspectives on present structures that indicate glacial creep that is moving massive amounts of debris vast distances
  • Discernable volcanic features provide textbook examples of felsic and mafic magma solidification (e.g. pahoehoe, aa, columnar basalt, ash flows) and observable directional flow patterns
  • Explanations of modern day geologic hazards and island monitoring for seismicity and volcanism

Trykt eller digital bog?

Ud over trykte bøger tilbyder vi tre forskellige typer af digitale bøger:

 

Vital Source Ebog: En velfungerende ebogsplatform, hvor bogen downloades til din computer og/eller mobile enhed.

 

Du skal bruge den gratis Bookshelf software til at læse læse bøgerne - der er indbygget gode værktøjer til f.eks. overstregning, notetagning mv. I langt de fleste tilfælde vil du samtidig have en sideløbende 365 dages online adgang. Læs mere om Vital Source bøger

 

Levering: I forbindelse med købet opretter du et login. Når du har installeret Bookshelf softwaren, logger du blot ind og din bog downloades automatisk.

 

 

Adobe ebog: Dette er Adobe DRM ebøger som downloades til din lokale computer eller mobil enhed.

 

For at læse bøgerne kræves særlig software, som understøtter denne type. Softwaren er gratis, men du bør sikre at du har rettigheder til installere software på den maskine du påtænker at anvende den på. Læs mere om Adobe DRM bøger

 

Levering: Et download link sendes pr email umiddelbart efter købet.
