9780195070484: Geologic Evolution of the Red Sea (Oxford Monographs on Geology and Geophysics)

The Red Sea is an important geologic phenomenon because it affords researchers the unique opportunity to witness an ocean in the process of being born. The continental crust has broken along a complex jumble of faults and is slowly spreading apart and, with further rifting, this infant ocean will evolve into a younger version of the Atlantic. The author of this work has studied extensively the patterns produced by processes taking place in the Red Sea basin and on the adjacent continental masses, patterns that can be used to interpret older, larger, and more complex geologic features. His book describes the tectonics, structure, volcanic history, geomorphology, and economic aspects (potential for petroleum and heavy metals) of the area. This book will be of interest to students and researchers of geology, paleontology, and oceanography.

About the Author:

Robert G. Coleman, Professor of Geology, Stanford University.

Review:

"This book reviews and synthesizes the widely scattered and voluminous information that has accumulated as a result of these studies....In a world where the literature on any one subject has proliferated to the point it is almost beyond any one individual's reach, a book like this is a most
welcome contribution....The author is to be commended for assembling the vast amount of scattered information concerning these subjects and for presenting them in an integrated synthesis in a handsome, concise, and readable volume." --Rushdi Said, American Association of Petroleum Geologists
Bulletin

"Contains a wealth of information ranging from geomorphology, stratigraphy, volcanic and sedimentary history, structure, and geophysics to plate tectonics and economic aspects." --Science

"A success....Does indeed provide an excellent reference tool for those intending to work in this area....Very well presented and is an excellent precis of the current knowledge. Also provides the reader with excellent references for further study of the geology of the Red Sea region. I have
no hesitation in recommending this book to all workers who need either of these tools." --PAGEOPGH (Pure and Applied Geophysics)
