About The Product

Published by way of the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Geodynamics Series.

The overseas Lithosphere application (ILP) was once proven in 1981 to motivate interdisciplinary, overseas learn at the nature, dynamics and starting place of the lithosphere. to do that quite a few operating teams and coordinating comittees have been organize to target particular features of ILP.

The mandate of operating staff 2 (WG2), which used to be chaired by means of Rob Van der Voo of the collage of Michigan, was once "Phanerozoic plate motions and orogenesis."
