The Structure and Physical Properties of the Earth's Crust

J. G. Heacock (Ed.)

This monograph is based on the proceedings of a Symposium on the Structure and Physical Properties of the Earth's Crust, held July 27 through 31, 1970, at the University of Colorado. This meeting was jointly sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Environmental Sciences (CIRES); the latter was formed by the University of Colorado and the Environmental Research Laboratories of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, Department of Commerce. Thirty-one papers were presented, the majority of which are published in this volume.
The Symposium was initiated by the editor with a special view toward answering fundamental environmental questions about the nature of the earth's crust, particularly at depths below a few kilometers, and in adjacent portions of the upper mantle. Conditions at these depths have rarely been the subject of multidisciplinary study in the past.
