Full Title: The Web of Geological Sciences: Advances, Impacts, and Interactions
Editor: Marion E. Bickford
Written by leading scientists in most of the important subdisciplines of the geological sciences, the 19 chapters in this book examine the question, "What advances have been made in the past 50 years?" Advances from 1963 to 2013 include the development and understanding of plate tectonics, exploration of the Moon and Mars, the development of new computing and analytical technologies, and the understanding of the role of microbiology in geologic processes, to name but a few. Certain to become a frequently cited classic, this volume will be of great interest to professional scientists and will be particularly useful for students.
