0813722209 1988 first edition Geological Society of America (Boulder, Colo.) 8 1/2 x 11 inches tall stapled book in glossy illustrated wraps, ix, 110 pp. plus three large fold-out plates in the rear pocket. Minor bumping to one tip. Otherwise, a near fine copy - clean, bright and unmarked. ~QQQ~ A laccolith is a sheet intrusion (or concordant pluton) that has been injected between two layers of sedimentary rock. The pressure of the magma is high enough that the overlying strata are forced upward, giving the laccolith a dome or mushroom-like form with a generally planar base. In the work for sale here, the end members of the laccolith growth series are treated as boundary value problems in continuum mechanics. Geometrically and materially nonlinear finite element analysis is used to solve the boundary value problems. Field observation, a physical model, and the theoretical models provide convergent answers to the mechanical analysis of the growth of laccoliths. As a check on the theoretical models, a gazetteer of the dimensions and locations of approximately 900 laccoliths is included. Of these, approximately 600 are located in the United States. If North America represents a statistically valid sample, then there must be between 5,000 and 10,000 laccoliths around the world. Bookseller Inventory #
