The inspiration of "accreted terranes," that continents develop by means of the addition of displaced fragments of crust, was once the vital subject of a contemporary multidisciplinary symposium backed through the foreign Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG). This quantity includes a choice of papers offered in Symposium 12 at XIX basic meeting of the IUGG, held August 15-18, 1987, in Vancouver. Convenors Edward Irving and David Stone concentrated this system on significant issues. the 1st was once to trace the displacement of terranes utilizing paleomagnetism, geologic mapping, and paleontology. the second one subject matter was once to discover the deep constitution of accreted terranes utilizing seismological, geochemical, and potential-field equipment. Given the scope of these subject matters, it truly is no shock that the members represented many specialties in the box of solid-earth geophysics. this system incorporated case histories from a set of fold belts spanning a lot time and lengthy distances, from the Proterozoic sutures of North the USA to the Cenozoic accretionary complexes of the Pacific rim.
