Description
In this book for general readers, Chester, retired from the Oceanography Department at the University of Liverpool, UK, reveals the history behind the discovery of plate tectonics and tells the story of how the surface of the planet was created and how it has evolved. From the early discoveries of Sir Francis Bacon to the controversy surrounding the theory of continental drift, the book describes the evolution of plate tectonics theory and explains the causes of earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes. B&w maps and high-quality b&w photos are included. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
