About this Book

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geodynamics Series, Volume 5.

During September 2-5, 1979 a group of about 80 earth scientists from many parts of the globe assembled in London, Ontario to attend a seminar devoted to discussion of the current (1979) state of geophysical and geochemical thought concerning the evolution of planet Earth. The papers included in this volume represent most of the views expressed at that conference. Unfortunately, participants in a few critical areas did not wish to submit manuscripts. The symposium was one of many organized to pay particular attention to advances in the earth sciences which had occurred during the period of the International Geodynamics program.
