This book provides an overview of the history of plate tectonics, including in-context definitions of the key terms. It explains how the forerunners of the theory and how scientists working at the key academic institutions competed and collaborated until the theory coalesced.
5. Plate Tectonics: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
Author: by Peter Molnar
Published at: Oxford University Press; 1st edition (May 1, 2015)
The 1960s revealed a new and revolutionary idea in geological thought: that the continents drift with respect to one another. After having been dismissed for decades as absurd, the concept gradually became part of geology’s basic principles. We now know that the Earth’s crust and upper mantle consist of a small number of rigid plates that move, and there are significant boundaries between pairs of plates, usually known as earthquake belts.
Plate tectonics now explains much of the structure and phenomena we see today: how oceans form, widen, and disappear; why earthquakes and volcanoes are found in distinct zones which follow plate boundaries; how the great mountain ranges of the world were built.
The impact of plate tectonics is studied closely as these processes continue: the Himalaya continues to grow, the Atlantic is widening, and new oceans are forming. In this Very Short Introduction Peter Molnar provides a succinct and authoritative account of the nature and mechanisms of plate tectonics and its impact on our understanding of Earth.
6. Plate Tectonics: Continental Drift and Mountain Building
Author: by Wolfgang Frisch
Published at: Springer; 2011th edition (November 24, 2010)
How are mountains formed? Why are there old and young mountains? Why do the shapes of South America and Africa fit so well together? Why is the Pacific surrounded by a ring of volcanoes and earthquake prone areas while the edges of the Atlantic are relatively peaceful?
Frisch and Meschede and Blakey answer all these questions and more through the presentation and explanation of the geo-dynamic processes upon which the theory of continental drift is based and which have lead to the concept of plate tectonics.
7. 9.0 Cascadia Earthquake Survival: How to Survive the Coming Megathrust Quake That Will Devastate the Pacific Northwest
Author: by Damian Brindle
Published at: Independently published (June 5, 2018)
The “Big One” is NOTHING compared to this… The San Andreas earthquake expected to hit California one day pales in comparison to the “Really Big One”-the Cascadia megaquake-a doomsday scenario that, when it goes off, is poised to utterly devastate the Pacific Northwest and endanger the lives of everyone who lives there.
Kenneth Murphy, FEMA’s Pacific Northwest director, was once quoted as saying: “Our operating assumption is that everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast.”He’s not exaggerating one bit. Not only will we be rocked by the biggest earthquake to EVER hit the mainland United States, but we’ll be inundated with:Massive Tsunamis Waves All Along the CoastlineDestructive Flooding for Many Miles InlandWidespread Wildfires and Suffocating SmokeDozens to HUNDREDS of Powerful AftershocksPlus Downed Trees and Powerlines That Will Slow Rescue Efforts to a CrawlAnd More!
You know earthquakes strike without warning, and if you live anywhere near the Pacific Northwest then you need to get ready for this approaching threat before it’s too late. Now, expert prepper, Damian Brindle, shares his must-read advice for how you can stay safe when the Cascadia Megathrust quake strikes.

9. Plate Tectonics: How It Works
Author: by Allan Cox
Published at: Wiley-Blackwell; 1st edition (January 16, 1986)
Palaeomagnetism, plates, hot spots, trenches and ridges are the subject of this unusual book. Plate Tectonics is a book of exercises and background information that introduces and demonstrates the basics of the subject. In a lively and lucid manner, it brings together a great deal of material in spherical trigonometry that is necessary to understand plate tectonics and the research literature written about it.
It is intended for use in first year graduate courses in geophysics and tectonics, and provides a guide to the quantitative understanding of plate tectonics.
10. The Rejection of Continental Drift: Theory and Method in American Earth Science
Author: by Naomi Oreskes
Published at: Oxford University Press USA; 1st edition (April 1, 1999)
In the early twentieth century, American earth scientists were united in their opposition to the new-and highly radical-notion of continental drift, even going so far as to label the theory “unscientific.” Some fifty years later, however, continental drift was heralded as a major scientific breakthrough and today it is accepted as scientific fact.
Why did American geologists reject so adamantly an idea that is now considered a cornerstone of the discipline? And why were their European colleagues receptive to it so much earlier? This book, based on extensive archival research on three continents, provides important new answers while giving the first detailed account of the American geological community in the first half of the century.
Challenging previous historical work on this episode, Naomi Oreskes shows that continental drift was not rejected for the lack of a causal mechanism, but because it seemed to conflict with the basic standards of practice in American geology. This account provides a compelling look at how scientific ideas are made and unmade.
11. A Streetcar to Subduction and Other Plate Tectonic Trips by Public Transport in San Francisco (Special Publications)
Author: by Clyde Wahrhaftig
Published at: American Geophysical Union; Revised edition (January 1, 1984)
Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Special Publications Series. It is hard to be unaware of the earth in San Francisco. Built on rocky hills, the city is surrounded on three sides by bay and ocean that can be seen from nearly everywhere within it.
Precipitous cliffs face the city from across the Golden Gate, and the skyline to the north, east, and south is dominated by mountains. Occasional tremors from the San Andreas and related faults nearby remind us that the earth here is active.
Until recently the rocks so abundantly exposed in San Francisco baffled geologists. Jumbled together without apparent order and lacking visible fossils, they defied explanation. The theory of plate tectonics has changed all that. We now have an explanation for the origin of the rocks of San Francisco, although it is anything but simple.
